How do you figure that... President Obama rose to the position of Leader of the Free World.

Call him what you will, but to deny Obama's strength says more about your lack of vision than any weakness you imagine in him.

Obama is messing up big time. The Russian leader made Obama look like a chump at the summit.

Okay genius, assuming what your saying is true, which it is not, what are your credentials to make such a blanket statement - what was that, you heard it on Fox News :-)

Yep, that I can agree on. Obama is out of touch with Americans, he isn't a very good leader.
I have to agree, unfortunately, and Romney's looking just as bad or worse.

This is why unless he does something really stupid before November I'll be casting my vote for third party alternative Gary Johnson.

Obama and his gang are traitors. No one can be as clueless as they are trying to look. They are Marxists and are trying to destroy our constitution and country. They MUST GO!!!!!!!!!!

95% of American voters couldn't pick Johnson out of a police line up.
He would be nothing more than a wasted protest vote.
The choices we have suck,but,its what we have.

I too am a libertarian, but I am a realist. All I can say is Obama must go, PERIOD.

Whatever flaws Romney may have the fact is we gave Obama four years and he failed to get the job done.

Hard but solid truth... we need CHANGE.

I don't think he is out of touch. I think he is very much 'in touch'. We are discussing an imposter that was birthed by garbage and raised with NO substance. YOu know, the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker.

He is out to do all he can to continue and FINISH the destruction of America. Many can't wrap their brains around that because they have not delved/acknowled/related to sociopaths. They think psychopathy is only for movies. Got a news flash. Psychopathy has been seated in our White HOuse for decades. This isn't just some 'nice guy' having some confusion. He is a psychopath. He plays many stupid American's like they are ignorant. And in that, they ARE ignorant. IGNORANT of things they should never HAD to have studied/dealt with.

Obamerjeffreyzodiakmansonbundy sociopath. And I swear to my God, it's hard for me to read the news and SEE that six faced psychopath with that manipulative cocky grin. BACK off obama. I don't want to smell your breath. Boundaries, asshole.

I really believe Obama believes everything is fine.
It just show how out of touch he really is with what is happening in this country.
With unemployment high throughout most of his term, he spent all his effort on ObamaCare, yet he still states the he created millions of jobs, where are they Mr President?
He makes all these outrageous claims yet the numbers don't back him up.

Quote of the day from the man of the people:“I didn’t think I was going to get any boos out of here,” President Obama said.“I should not have brought up baseball, I understand, my mistake, you got to know your crowd.”

Standby Mr. President, the boos are coming for more than just baseball and from your fundraising crowds nontheless.

Well, this is a repost but I haven't seen a word about here on any of our active politics threads, so... I haven't had a chance to verify this yet, but this is causing a buzz on a forum elsewhere:

Interesting, I've been so busy with personal topics that I hadn't even noticed. I'll go have a look when time permits.
