Has he gotten a new Wig?? The Old one looked like roadkill. And the fools will probably put him into office because he isn't any more corrupt than the other people running.

I watched the proceedings on TV.Talk about a witch-hunt and a railroad job. They where afraid of him because of his "tell it like it is" way of speaking on the floor and exposing corruption.It's ironic and tragic that the corrupt congressional SOBs send him to jail for corruption.,,,go figure

He's a typical corrupt Demoscat trying to run as an independent.

Obama's principles oddly enough place him along the same lines as a moderate republican of the 70's. The problem is the Republican wingnuts have gone so far right it's embarassing

By "Ex-Con", you mean CAUGHT, or Given up by his fellow congressmen (who I am SURE don't EVER get any special treatment or kickbacks, right?), then yes, Jim T. is one. The only reason he served that much time was because his fellow politicians wanted to make an example out of someone who doesn't play ball with them. Let's be real here people. I'd vote for the guy that none of the other BS'ers liked anyday. Jim T. used to actually accomplish things. Your golden God Tim Ryan is a typical politician. Good with words (kinda like our mr perfect president huh?), but not much else. You really think Tim Ryan (or any other politician for that matter) DOESN'T get special "Treatment"? If you believe this, you are truly a sheep.

Yes, and don't forget that the pendulum swings wildly back the other way mr Democrat. Unless Obama decides to make himself KING.

Obama is a consumate liar. He has no principles. He can be left, or right, or moderate, whatever, because he is a liar.

personally, I think it makes a lot of sense to make the right choice for the right situation rather than just vote along party lines, don't you? Partisanship is what really destroys politics.

Then you will certainly hate the next President in 2012, a Republican. And with a Republican House, and Senate left over from 2010 you will be filled with hate. But thaT is o k.

I don't care who is in as long as they make good sound decisions that help the majority of the people.

By the likes of your ISP address, you're in a heavily populated republican section of the country yet the median income level is very low. You voting for a republican is like the chickens voting for Colonel Sanders. When will low class inbred republicans ever understand this?? They always vote in their best disinterest, lisenting only to the hate and the rhetoric.

I hate to tell you, you are having such fun in your little blue bubble, but the town listed with my name is not really wher I am from. You have no idea where I am from. No one. I am Conservative, and I do believe Obama is a Marxist/Leftist, and I don't see him being re elected, so let him have his way for the next 5 months, then he can sit out the last 2 year of his term in his living quarters.

I don't hate the fact that he made it to the White House, it's the way he made it there that disturbs me.The past election was rife with voter fraud and people voting for someone based only on their skin color. Many who voted for him had no clue as to what he really stood for.
