Hillary/Michelle in '16.
Imagine that for a moment.

You certainly don't have to agree with my assessment of "our" President, but I'm curious, Catcher. Exactly what IS your assessment of our President?
I do have one request for any answer you might post: please leave any other president out of it. Stick to this one.
I think Obama is very intelligent, has studied history carefully, is a masterful politician, and cares deeply for his country. He has made mistakes, yes. He has also been faced with the Republican party's attempts to make him fail, whatever the cost (remember the mantra of the early days, the goal was to make him a one-term president). He is by no means the socialist as some attempt to characterize him.

Obama also epitomizes "family values". He is a caring and loyal husband and father, making him (and Michelle) an example for others.

That's pretty much it in a nutshell. I realize I won't get much agreement here.

First of all, I sincerely thank you for taking the time to answer my question. But perhaps I should have been more specific. In your opinion, what has Obama ACCOMPLISHED? Never mind what he hasn't done for whatever reason--what HAS he done?

Because Hillary is a secular-progressive more interested in her career than in what's best for the nation and Michelle Obama has openly said the first time in her early-middle-aged life she was proud of this country was when her husband was nominated for POTUS. I do not believe either one of them can be trusted to put the nation's interests ahead of their own.

I should add that I think the point is moot, since I'm 99% sure that a Hillary/Michelle Obama ticket ain't about to happen.

If you don't mind, I'll have to get back to you on this.

It's Friday night and I'm feeling mellow.

I don't want to get depress about the lack of progress.

No problem. There's times I just don't want to get into it, either--and that includes OFFline :)

President Obama is, indeed, a con(!)sumate politician. He is a centrist who leans more heavily to the right, but whose 'Executive Policy' leans ostensibly to the left. The man has been re-elected to the highest office in the country, by appealing to the most voters who would otherwise vote the other way. That's American politics.

His wife has exemplified the best qualities of every publicly effective First Lady: Decisively and unashamedly raising her children; involvement in causes dear to her, regardless of popular sentiment; availability to the Public; and an innate fashion sense.

Three more years, and it's on to the next one.
One can only hope it's not Jeb Bush, although of all the dynastic heirs to that 'throne', he's the least offensive to the base of conservatives who USED TO comprise the Republican party.

1) Moot. Millions of people in this country are intelligent. The actor James Woods has an reported IQ of 180 and I'll bet a Topix dollar if he were Commander in Chief he would have known the 'P' in Marine Corp was silent. An indication Obama didn't do well in the English portion of his SAT's perhaps? I wouldn't know. He has had his academic stats sealed and going only by his arrogance, I'm going to assume if he were "off the charts smart", they would have released them.

2) He has? Last I knew he studied law, international law, economics and social issues in college. Maybe you could provide me with a source for the assertion that he's "studied history carefully."

3) He's deceptive and secretive. He's masterful at getting votes and was elected in good part on his "likeability." Competence doesn't matter much in the view of the low information voter. Take you for example........

4) Wanting to "fundamentally transform America" doesn't translate into caring deeply for his country. He cares deeply about forcing this country into an ideology he prefers and envisions. He despises many things about this country.

5) Let me count the ways.

6) No one wanted HIM to fail. Nearly 50% of the country want his plan for America to fail. Big difference. Stop whining and creating some unseen force that people want the black guy to fail. There's no hidden plan to "take back the plantation," Catcher.

7) He is absolutely a socialist. What is up with you people and that word? You don't mind him enacting policies which promote socialism but you can't stomach the word. Francois Hollande President of France is his soul mate. Do some research and see for yourself the similarities in platforms.

8) Big flipping deal. Millions of Americans epitomize family values. I don't see him with an agressive agenda promoting responsible parenting in regard to the 70+% of African American girls/women having children out of wedlock along with the highest number of MIA fathers in our population. Personal responsibility doesn't sell for democrats. It's a contradiction to entitlements.

9) That's one sad looking nutshell.

10) That's because the reasons you like and admire this guy are flimsey.

A message to Michael Moore.

Published March 15, 2013
FoxNews.com


"Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore wants photographs of the children slaughtered in Newtown, Conn., at the Sandy Hook Elementary School to be released for public consumption.

His rationale is Americans will be so horrified by the carnage inflicted by Adam Lanza that they will demand gun control and effectively silence the NRA.

From a psychological perspective, Moore is arguing we traumatize Americans with grotesque images to such an extent that any rational argument about what caused the Sandy Hook tragedy ends, and people follow along with his absurd notion that guns and ammunition were what resulted in children dying there, rather than the obvious fact that our failed mental health care system is to blame.

To review the actual facts, Adam Lanza was a mentally ill man who lived in the windowless basement of his mother’s home. Inexplicably, she not only failed to secure her legally obtained firearms, but taught him to be a marksman.

Yet, this one-in-a-million scenario, which depended far more on Lanza never getting all the help he needed and being locked in a complex, unhealthy relationship with his mother (whom he shot to death), is heralded as a reason by Moore to violate the U.S. Constitution and take people’s right to bear arms away from them.

Moore apparently doesn’t care that showing photographs of dead, murdered children to the public would expose millions of children to those images, and might inflict the kind of psychological trauma upon them that contributes to making them shut down, lose empathy and become capable of violent acts themselves.

Moore apparently doesn’t understand that using dead children as a prop to make political points and elevate his political position is a failure of empathy and act of brazen narcissism.

Because the political underpinnings of what really happened to make this country defend human rights and free people from tyranny would be just as irrelevant to him as the underpinnings of what really happened in Newtown, where our shattered, shoddy mental health care system was again on display—as it was in Aurora, Colo., where James Holmes, who was also mentally ill, killed 12 people; and as it was near Tucson, Ariz., where Jared Lee Loughner, who was mentally ill, shot 19 people, killing six and severely wounding Rep. Gabby Giffords.

Here’s a psychiatrist’s advice for Moore: Heart disease kills almost 600,000 people per year in the United States. There are about 30,000 deaths from handguns. Most of those are suicides due to depression.

So, I suggest that, rather than releasing the pictures of slaughtered children, which will traumatize tens of millions of American children, he should release a naked photograph of himself.

Because, by his rationale (which I do not share), a full view of his obese torso could motivate people to stop drugging themselves with copious amounts of food and might put an end to a fair amount of heart disease."

Obama is about as "centrist" as he were parked on the left shoulder of a freeway.
