It appears he is. Total turn off for me. I'm sick of it coming out of the White House and wouldn't vote someone in for more of it.

You had a President who claimed to be interested in the "American agenda". His name was George Dubya Bush and he got this country in a worse mess than ever imagined. Yet you blind "Americans" voted him in another 4 years and got more of the same, namely many of your youth were killed in a senseless war.
Obama is trying to clean up this government and the mess made by the former Pres. 8 years of destruction is hard to rectify in 4 years, but He's doing an excellent job and I will continue to stand by him til the very end.
You have no clue how close to the end you are. Talk about blind!

I am very disappointed in Herman Cain. Is he seeking to divide? That is what we have had enough of. I thought he was above such foolishness. Would never think of him as my candidate now, and I was seriously considering him.
Cain explained that last nite. He does not think Perry is a racist.

Researcher: You are an imbecile! You can find a poll for everything, by anyone you want. In political science, historical rankings of Presidents of the United States are surveys conducted in order to construct rankings of the success of individuals who have served as President of the United States. Ranking systems are usually based on surveys of academic historians and political scientists and/or popular opinion. The rankings focus on the presidential achievements, leadership qualities, failures and faults. The rankings I just viewed has placed G. W. Bush (43) tied for 22nd. Either you are sadly steered by others, or you are a bald face liar. You're not a researcher, so change your name to Follower if you want to be factual.

Cain doesn't have a white half, hes all black, therefore, he cannot lay back and pretend racism doesn't exist.
VOTE HERMAIN CAIN, HE'LL SPEAK WHATS ON HIS MIND.
You ppl. thought he was different, yeah, fooled you devils.
No one should pretend racism doesn't exist. However, there is no reason to instigate it, as he has done in this situation. It makes him look very foolish. You are right, I didn't think he would have the same old rhetoric as just about every other black in politics and media.

This was done to get the black vote. It has lost him a lot of white support, because it is totally unfounded.

There are many polls of best to worst presidents. I looked at the most recent 5 I could find, which are USPC (2011), Siena (2010), C-SPAN (historians)(2009), Times (2008), Wall Street Journal (2005) and averaged 5 numbers for each of our most recent presidents,

When the 5 most recent rankings were averaged:

G.W. Bush was ranked 32 out of 43 when the 5 rankings were averaged

Clinton was ranked 18 out of 42

G.H.W. Bush was ranked 20

Reagan was ranked 10

In the only poll that included the current president, Obama was ranked 15 down from the best, out of 44, by Siena in 2010.

Hmmmm I see you are from richmond va. I'm betting you are also a ward of the federal government (fed employee)

I suggest you go back to the liberal posting area where someone may actually care about what you have to say

Or, are you trying to make this a racial issue, like your president is doing?

Besides Researcher, you Texas good old boys are somethin else. I would love for someone to take your dusty, dirty cowboy boots and shove them up your rump. The same way Bush shoved that horrific war in the face of all Americans, ultimately killing thousands of young promising American soldiers.
