No way he'll ever get re elected. I've spoken to many people that voted for him that would never do it again. You can delude yourself into thinking he will though if that makes you feel better.
He's not only the most divisive POTUS ever, and people now know what a liar he is. He's so far out of the mainstream it's not funny.
For ghetto dwellers who've won the lottery, he's in the mainstream.

?? That is a huge improvement over bush. Only 28% instead of bush's over 40%. I didn't realize things were getting that much better that quickly.
Ah yes, comments from someone whose State gave us the first Muslim in Congress, ever. Congratulations you loser. In case you libs haven't figured it out we are sick and tired of you and your whining.

And you haven't seen anything yet, just wait until 2012. Libs were put in charge and you've bankrupted us. And don't give the me Bush this, Bush that either,.....he was just about as worthless as Obama. We need real conservatives in office like Rick Scott and Rick Walker that aren't afraid to save us all from financial disaster. In the meantime the IDIOT democrats still somehow think more government spending is the answer. MORONS!

I for one am convinced that your corrupt incompetent hack of a Kenyan stooge will get a second term.

In a federal pen.

Look it up, 9 year old blue thistle troll.
You're thinking of your Kenyan schools.

I'm guessing you spent too much time studying Kenyan Cannibal Pots 101 to remember differently.

Gore tried to steal the election, but failed.
But but but....if the democRATS weren't trying to steal -- our freedoms, liberites, money, and prosperity and futures....

They wouldn't be democrats. Or communists. Or subversives.

Of course they've successfully stolen the minds of their brainwashed, subjugate, entitlement-enslaved lackeys. And 100 years from now, they'll still be in the toilet, and voting for more bureaucratic control over their lives.

Bush lost Florida???
He had 537 more votes after the recounted recounts by the democrats and the Florida Supreme Court said that's enought.
...

The USSC followed the constitution, something you dems seem to ignore. The difference between a puppy and the democrats, the puppy stops whining eventially!
LOL, I suppose you got those goodies straight from Fox News. No wonder most people think Fox news does nothing but lie. They can't seem to do anything else.

By any reasonable count, bush lost. You can make us scenerios where if you don't count these votes, and you don't count those votes, maybe bush would have won. IF you go by Florida Law, bush lost. There is no question about it. He got less ballots.

It was the GOP with scam after scam because they knew they had no chance in Florida by obeying the law.

The Florida supreme court actually attempted to adjudicate between conflicting requirements of the law. The law said to count the ballots in a prescribed manner and be done on time. Harris said she would not do that according to her duty. Gore stupidly made the concession to only count some areas. bush countered to count only other areas. The court said couting the ballots was more important. Since an accurate count was more important, they allowed Harris extra time to complete the count.

bush took that to the USSC where he cried that counting the ballots wasn't fair. He only wanted his ballots counted. His buddies on the USSC ruled that the Florida court was not allowed to perform its primary function of adjudicating between laws and that the law must be followed.

The Florida court responded OK, if the law must be followed, the the ballots must be counted according to law and must be done on time.

bush again went crying to the court saying he only wanted his ballots counted. His buddies again came to his rescue saying the method Florida had chosen to count ballots was flawed. Since different people may count differently, no ballots can be counted. Different machines might be calibrated differently so no ballots can be counted. They further ruled that since no ballots can be counted, bush won. They didn't throw out the results, they just provided their own.

They knew that no election could ever be held again if anyone used that ruling as precedent so they ruled that that judgment could not be used as precedent.

They completely demolished the constitution with all their contortions.

The bottom line was that they had ruled the Florida election invalid, in violation of their constitutional authority, yet they appointed bush.

Can you show where in the constitution it says the USSC can appoint the president?

I suppose from your point of view, anyone who is not a die hard fascist is a communist, no matter how much they support our constitution.

??? I didn't vote for him and I would not vote for him in 2012. However, he is much less divisive than bush. He lies better and less often than bush. His problem with the mainstream is he is too much like bush to support the people.

There are plenty of things to criticize Obama for. Stick to the real reasons and you will have credibility. Made up complaints make your arguments silly.

This site wants me to vomit on myself and stretch my skin to turn inside out and escape a world that remotely permits such unreasonable, illogically ignorant hate as is included in this forum. Who allows your existence?!? Think, reason, THEN speak. MOVE out of the FUCKING way for people who do.
