HE should NOT be President. He was born in Kenya!
He is Muslim. And he is black, that's the only reason he won, he's black!

Try using a different analogy next time - the POTUS does not control the price of gas. And have you checked your first paycheck of the new year yet? Everybody's making less - not just you. That's bipartisanship at its best right there.

You almost sounded intelligent there, the only problem is that you're using words you don't know the meaning of. Tallyho didn't use an analogy at all, which you would have realized if you passed 5th grade grammar. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analogical Analogy (from Greek &#7936;&#957;&#945 ;&#955;&#959;&#947 ;&#943;&#945;, analogia, "proportion"[1][2]) is a cognitive process of transferring information or meaning from a particular subject (the analogue or source) to another particular subject (the target), and a linguistic expression corresponding to such a process. In a narrower sense, analogy is an inference or an argument from one particular to another particular, as opposed to deduction, induction, and abduction, where at least one of the premises or the conclusion is general.

agreed he shouldn't be President , but here is a news flash he wasn't born in Kenyon .... but a secondary point is even if you believe he was he still can be President , his MOM is an American citizen by birth and does reside in the US..

That first paycheck of the year shows a huge tax increase for the middle class. Id you make $50,000 you will have $1,000 less to spend this year

The president has a great deal to do with the price of gas throuh his policy on supply of oil. Bush dropped oil prices by saying he was going to open drilling. Gas was below $2 when Obama took office

he was born in Hawaii, his birth was announced at the time in 2 of the three newspapers inHawaii at the time.

Check the newspaper archives they are at the library and online at genealogy websites

Personally I believe he is probably an atheist as so many educated people are but either way I believe his Christian grandparents who raised. Him would have more influence than the short term relationship his mother had with his father or stepfather.

I hardly think anyone believes being black was to his advantage.

I voted for him, I'm white and certainly did not vote fr him based on his race.

I approve of his presentation of self, his family values and the way he represents us on the world stage but then I recognize the government is controlled by congress not the office of one man

He is doing his job though congress continues to fail while trying to use him as the scapegoat

Actually, no.

A temporary cut in social security witholdings gave you extra dollars on your paycheck over the past two years. Congress allowed that break to expire, meaning that ss taxes have reverted back to 6.2% of salary from the temporary 4.2%.

How's that bipartisanship working for you now?

It's NOT a democratic lie

On an outreach page on its website, the Barack Obama-Joe Biden re-election campaign takes aim at three Republican presidential candidates for their stances on aid to Israel -- a hot-button topic for members of both parties.

It's a campaign re-election site.
