Why must you PROGRESSIVES insist that if ones doesn't kiss OBAMA'S butt they watch Fox or are a Republican and liked Bush.. Get over yourselves.. I voted AGAINST Bush both elections.. and for the Democrat on the ticket.. and for the SAME reason I voted against Bush I voted against Obama.. Both are arrogant fools. and after 8 years of Bush we didn't need the extension of grief by OBAMA being elected
And why do republicans expect Obama to fix everything the second he enters office? Unlike Dubya,at least Obama hit the ground running when he was elected and not spending the first few months at the golf course.
If you didn't want Bush or Obama,I'm guessing you're a Nader fan?

Wrong, and I am not a fan of ANYONE I vote on the issues NOT and I don't believe everything a candidate says.. if it doesn't sound logical it most likely isn't. Yea Obama hit the ground running NO PLAN but he was running.. Apparently he never heard of the old saying.. for every action there is an equal and sometimes unwanted reaction.. he spends and we will be paying.. did you like it if you had a child today that child would already OWE 20k? Bush was out of control with his spending but OBAMA is making him look fugal.. everyone will have health care but no one will be working to pay for it.. that's the problem with these Politicians they are OUT OF TOUCH and to separated from the people unless you have the money to go to one of the FUND RAISERS and you give them a nice donation THEN THEY talk to you.. By the way I voted DEMOCRATIC BOTH TIME BUSH RAN.. This time I refused to vote for either party.. both candidates were feeding the people BS, I voted for Chuck Baldwin not because I thought he'd win but at least he wasn't feeding us BS.. see I don't have to support a winner to feel good about myself.. I have to be honest about what I think of the candidates.. and as it turns out I can now tell my friends who voted for Obama and are screaming at his ineptness.. I TOLD YOU SO.. honestly OBAMA is giving it his best right now.. he wasn't good at focusing on ANYTHING but raising money and fluttering around like a social butterfly.. he's way to much into himself and this job requires him to be into the people.. Republican's don't expect Obama to FIX things SOME actually voted for him what they didn't expect was him to make things so bad so fast.. I did vote Republican for senator this time however, Durbin is another one who is to far removed from the people..

What's with all the hostility? All I asked was where you saw that Obama made 3 million dollars. No need to resort to name calling.
That being said,the article speaks for itself:the 3M that he made is primarily from the 2.6mil payout of his last book. I never said he was wealthy all his life. It sounds like you're upset that he got so much for it. And unlike the Bushes,he did come from a modest middle class background. Also,I don't recall him squandering and flaunting the wealth like George Sr. and Jr. did when thet were in the White House.
Compared to author Stephen King,who recieves $200,000 A WEEK from royalties,a 3million dollar take home for,I'm guessing,the first time in Obama's life,is nothing.

If McCain won,would you jump down his throat for owning those 8 homes and having an estimated net worth of $40M?

I could care less if Obama was rich or poor. You are the one making him out to be what he is not. Then you create these strawmen about my jealousy? Get real...I'm just telling you to do your research before you call people out...an far as McCain I could care less of his status either. We need good leaders, not American idols manfactured in the minds and hearts of ignorant voters. It pains most liberals to know that Obama didn't have the 'oppressed experience at whiteys hands', rather he is another Ivy Leaguer with strong political/power connections and a ton of cash. That is fact.

Here is the reality Kyle: You are a partisan fool given your continuous attacks on Bushs's character and the fictious Obama you have created in your own head.

I'm not a republican didn't support Bush and was SMART enough to no support OBAMA.. I will love it when I see the DEMOCRATS WHO WORK SQUIRM (not those like you that sit home and wait for the government check)as they are not just having voters remorse but a complete party change as they realize THEIR taxes are about to sky rocket.. I myself have become a homemaker.. less taxes to support those that can't be bothered to work.. see how it works when taxes coming in DON'T cover the checks going out.. INFLATION.. taxes coming in are already DOWN 36%.. why you haters of Republicans or Working Democrats that don't agree with Obama are begging for food figure out WHERE your going to get your free checks..
