Come on guys! Both Dems. & Rep are idiots. But WE are the bigger idiots for allowing this to happen. Look, There are good & bads on both parties. I voted for Obama and was happy to do so. But seeing what he as done.(NOTHING) Now I want anyone else but him. Someone else who can work with both parties to get some issues resolved. This has nothing to do with being Demonstrate Or Republican. What we need more in bettering California. Is get rid of Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein ! They are not in reach with Us anymore.
We need to vote them out as well. Give me anyone else. But these two bozos. Now with the Occupy movement, Well they really screwed up when trashing the City Hall and burning of the flag. I think many of us are tried of this non-sense and wish they just go away now. Mayor Quan needs to step up!

Never again will I vote for a Black person after Obama. It is disgusting that someone has held the highest seat in the nation and he literally made everything that was already a mess into an inferno. Totally disgusting. He made more people hate Blacks and more people switching to the GOP Right Wing Anti-Anything thats not White Skin. There are large gangs like CRIPS or BLOODS that have doubled in size in both Oakland and L.A. In one year. The World is going insane literally, I truly wish that I haven't grown up in Oakland as well as I wish my skin is not Black. What these animals will do for a dollar they are killers. I'm going to Harvard in the fall! I'm sure that it's nothing like living in Oakland.

What do you mean Obama has done nothing? Bush handed Obama an economy totally in the dumps, thanks primarily to that totally unnecessary TRILLION dollar war combined with two rounds of tax cuts which benefitted primarily the rich. The collapse of the housing market caused by the Republican approved deregulated financial institutions didn't help things of course. Obama said he'd set a timetable for getting us out of Iraq (we can't stay there FOREVER!) and he did. He promised affordable health care for all (something almost every other country on the planet takes for granted!) and despite being fought tooth and nail by the Republicans he got that through. The number of new jobs has been steadily rising, unemployment is down, the stock market is at a four year high. Every economic analyst in the country will tell you there is no fast and easy way out of the mess Bush left. What do you really expect? You think somebody from the Republican clown show is going to do any better? Dream on! If you want to see the rich get rich and the poor get poorer go ahead and vote for them though. Just pray they won't get us into a nuclear war though!

Just give me some examples of how Obama "literally made everything that was already a mess into an inferno"? Your statement that you will never vote for a Black person after Obama is not only racist it's idiotic! It's would be like me saying I'll never vote for a white person again after Bush! It doesn't make any freaking sense!!!

How did Obama make more people hate Blacks? The right wingers already hated them (all that welfare you know!) unless they were right wingers like themselves (such as Clarence Thomas and Herman Cain). I'm not defending gangs at all (I hate their guts!!!) but show me statistics verifiying that the number of CRIPS and Bloods in Oakland and LA have doubled in a year. What would that have to do with Obama anyway? That cultural rot called "gangsta rap" has much more to do with that than ANY politician!

Frankly I sort of doubt that you are black and if someone who can't think any more clearly than you has been accepted into Harvard they have definitely lowered the bar for admittance. If that's true well maybe Harvard will teach you to be a more thoughtful, tolerant and more intelligent human being. One can only hope!!!
