This cannot be. Obama closed the Guantanamo prison. At least he promised he would. Of course he also promised to unite the country, decrease unemployment, increase transparency in government, reduce unemployment ………….

Obama could not unite the country with you republicans going out of your way to divide it that much more ,HOWEVER I agree about everything else you stated but esp the complete lack of gvmt transparency.

It seems that anybody who does not bow to the Almighty Obama is a Republican.
I have only voted for one Republican president since 1980. I am a registered member of the largest political group in the nation.

I guess you don't follow the news too closely. Obama tried several times and Congress used its spending oversight authority to block him.

You always claim to be a proud Democrat. It's surprising you were not aware of this.

If Dee Dee is a Democrat than Marco Rubio is honest.

"Marco Rubio's lavish rise to the top"


About $600,000 in contributions was stowed in two inconspicuous political committees controlled by Rubio, now the Republican front-runner for the U.S. Senate, and his wife. A St. Petersburg Times/Miami Herald analysis of the expenses found:

• Rubio failed to disclose $34,000 in expenses — including $7,000 he paid himself — for one of the committees in 2003 and 2004, as required by state law

• One committee paid relatives nearly $14,000 for what was incorrectly described to the IRS as "courier fees" and listed a nonexistent address for one of them. Another committee paid $5,700 to his wife, who was listed as the treasurer, much of it for "gas and meals."

• He billed more than $51,000 in unidentified "travel expenses'' to three different credit cards — nearly one-quarter of the committee's entire haul. Charges are not required to be itemized, but other lawmakers detailed almost all of their committee expenses.

Rubio's spending continued in 2005 when the Republican Party of Florida handed him a credit card to use at his own discretion. While serving as House speaker in 2007 and 2008, he charged thousands of dollars in restaurant tabs to the state party at the same time taxpayers were subsidizing his meals in Tallahassee

I do not find Obama to be a winner, he lies non stop but living in FloriDUH with worse such as republican Gov, Rick Scott and republican "turn a blind eye to political corruption" state attorney general. I can not even look at a republican.

When I lived in NY I voted both parties and would vote for a Rudy Giuliani if he ever ran in FloriDUH ,over the useless , self serving disasters which this state is politically known for.

Overall Obama has been inept and weak when dealing with GOP, Hillary would have been stronger.

Obama will tell his base one thing than give the GOP most of what they want and betray his base.

He is simply the lesser of the evils and I say this as a registered independent.

I am from Bayside,NY and backed Hillary from Day 1 , she was a tough fighter for NY but the media had their own agenda and made Obama look much better than he ever deserved..

Have to agree with you. Obama has gotten better recently, but he is terrible whenever he negotiates with the Republicans. He gives away the store.

I supported Hillary too and know she would have done better. The media certainly did prefer Obama.

Hillary must have spent a lot of time in Bayside. It seems like every restaurant there has a picture of her hanging up.

Lie after lie. Do you even know what truth is my little stalker? I have never been and sure as hell never will be a Democrat especially because people like you are.
Obama said he would close Guantanamo.
It is not closed 5 years later. He did not do what he said he would and could do. Just like you he either lied or he was talking out of his a$$ becuse he had no understanding of the issue or how to deal with it and has failed.
He can blame his failure on others or he can own it. I guess his supporters can empathize with him.

Oh. So those posts the other day where you were saying you never voted for a Republican before Obama came along were not true.

It is so hard to keep up with your bullshit.
