You are correct about my pre-election silence (of course, I don't agree with your assessment of our President).
I was a newby, and I didn't want to count my chickens before they hatched.
I would have ended up with egg on my face had the prediction of your "group" been confirmed by the voters.
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.

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.
