We gave President Obama a chance, and he has failed us, he has spoken as a 'racist', and has chosen to find health care that treats us like 3rd class citizens.

alot of folks had their doubts about him, but we gave him a chance, i guess they were right, and we were wrong.

Our elected dictator and his gangsters are about to launch another false painting on our sensibilities. I can only reason that he does this because he thinks we are fools. Fools enmasse. Fools of a fairy tale quality. Fools imagined in an opiate stupor. People who will trade the family cow for magic beans.

In history and literature I have never met a more magnificent A55.

Thank you Bill and all the parents and families of our great heroes.

And of course. God bless our great heroes.

This is why Obama GOT my vote
10. Look to the future: Senator Obama offers the most comprehensive energy plan of any Presidential nominee in history, it will end our dependence on foreign oil and create as many as 5,000,000 jobs. Senator McCain’s plan continues the Bush Administration’s policy of appeasement to Big Oil, does nothing to reduce our dependence on oil, and isn’t as good as Paris Hilton’s.
9. You pollute, you pay: Obama and Biden support plan to make polluters pay for pollution credits and to clean up toxic waste. McCain wants us to foot the bill for clean-up and to give polluters billions in tax breaks and subsidies.
8. Keeping us healthy: Obama and Biden have fought to keep our air and water clean. McCain has voted against clean water ten times and voted six times to make it harder for states and the EPA to keep our air clean.
7. Listening to the scientists: The Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says that America must reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050 in order to avoid the worst effects of global warming. Obama’s plan will reach that goal. McCain’s plan falls far short.
6. The record speaks for itself: Senator Barack Obama earned a lifetime environmental voting score of 86%. Senator Biden earned an 83%. Senator John McCain earned a 24% score.
5. Decisions are made by those who show up: In the last two years, John McCain missed EVERY SINGLE major vote on energy. One vital 2007 bill, to move billions of dollars in tax credits from the oil industry to wind, solar and other clean energy sources, failed by one vote: John McCain’s. Obama and Biden, also running for President, voted for it.
4. Saving money at the pump: Obama proposes to double the fuel efficiency of our cars in 18 years, reducing our oil consumption by at least 35% or 10 millions barrels per day. McCain voted against increasing fuel efficiency in 2003 and 2005. He missed the 2007 vote. Presumably, he ran out of gas.
3. We’re not alone: For more than 20 years, Joe Biden has been at the forefront of the fight against global warming. In 1986, he offered the first Senate bill to fight global warming pollution. Since then, he has been the Senate’s strongest voice for making America the international leader in reducing global warming pollution and exporting clean technology.
2. Higher standards: To create millions of new jobs, we must boost production of renewable electricity. Obama plans create 25% of our electricity from clean energy by 2025. McCain opposes any national renewable energy standard.
1. Judge him by his friends: Senator McCain accepted more than $2 million from the oil and gas industry, more than half of that since he changed his position on offshore drilling last month. His forthcoming plan to open America’s playgrounds and sandboxes to drilling is expected to net another $1.2 million.

Nice try Elmer Fudge Pakka! You're and old character.

Despite my utter contempt for this despicable man, this proponent of Marxism and enemy of Freedom: I can't help but feel pity for this pathetic excuse for manhood that has been forced upon us. The more I learn of his childhood and the obvious resentment he feels toward the white race; the more understanding I have for this twisted soul that is intent on destroying the United States in a misguided effort to gain international recognition and standing.

If we were really concerned with the mixed up feelings of lost souls who lead the most powerful country in the world we would have compassion for this village idiot personality that lulls us into a somnolence with words from a teleprompter while his head jerks from left to right in a type of of inanimate dance of lunacy. Whistling his "S"s and using that lilting inflection and the sudden stop at the end of each sentence with a high note with such predictability you are driven to distraction.

Does he deserve pity? If he steps down and discloses the Marxist Insurgency that is threatening this country he will at least be given the credit he deserves for being honest. Even though he is a lost soul, with a confused moral compass: he is nevertheless trying to destroy this country and the freedoms we hold so dear.

His administration is unraveling at an ever increasing rate, it is only a matter of time before the total corruption will be exposed: he should step down and admit that he is ill prepared to lead this great country and his dreams were only pipe dreams that were encouraged by others with sinister motives. Ths has been a great mistake that can remedied before an even bigger mistake occurs.

This is not Chicago Politics run by a block captain or a Community Organizer; this is the big leagues Hussein and you are about to strike out.

When the president was asked by reporters if the senate, congress, and the POTUS would carry the same health insurance as the rest of us he didn't answer... he has been asked many times. So... it's good enough for us but not for them?

I agree , just listening to poor barry makes me feel foolish , so I 've gotten into the habit of muting the sound when he speaks...that really exposes him for the fraud he is . Watching him speak without sound is utterly pathetic and an indictment of the fools who voted for him

Gee Jess, at least when stamos goes off on one of his long winded rants or cuts and pastes from www.rightwingconspiracynuts.com he doesn't duplicate whole passages. I mean, sure, he flip flops around like a fish out of water trying to get the whole hate spew from Rush in, and maybe goes on way way too long, but, at least no exact duplication.
Try to emulate him a little better, OK.

HI I am Dr. Martscoff from the Cleveland Institute of Pychological Disorders, I have met with Stamos on many occasions and have clinically diagnosed Stamos with the following disorders
Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition characterized by an inflated sense of self-importance, Stamos has a need for admiration, extreme self-involvement, and lack of empathy for others. Individuals with this disorder such as Stamos are usually arrogantly self-assured and confident. They expect to be noticed as superior. Many highly successful individuals might be considered narcissistic. However, this disorder is only diagnosed when these behaviors become persistent and very disabling or distressing.
Vulnerability in self-esteem makes Stamos with this disorder very sensitive to criticism or defeat. Although Stamos may not show it outwardly, criticism may haunt Stamos and may leave him feeling humiliated, degraded, hollow, and empty. Stamos may react with disdain, rage, or defiant counterattack. Stamos’s social life is often impaired due to problems derived from entitlement, the need for admiration, and the relative disregard for the sensitivities of others. Though their excessive ambition and confidence may lead to high achievement; performance may be disrupted due to intolerance of criticism or defeat.
Narcissistic traits are very common in adolescents, but most adolescents grow out of this behavior. Unfortunately, for some,such as Stamos this narcissistic behavior persists and intensifies into adulthood; thus I have since Diagnosed Stamos with this disorder

What is amazing to me is there are many,many fairly intelligent people that bought Obama's message of hope and change....Now we are all getting it whether we like it or not. This was a man that had no experience (NONE) in running any organization with a budget and most of America gave him the keys to US treasury.
Most of the things he has done lately would have had BUSH crucified.
I DID NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA, and I told most of his supporters I knew that this would come un-raveled quickly.
Not only is his health plan an albatross, he has not stopped campaigning and spent one full week in the White house working, his wife has ten staff members adding to the tax burden, his administration currently is projected to spend the least amount of money on EPA projects than any in the last 25 years, not to mention they have blown the roof off our national spending/budget.
What a sad joke I hope all you democrats are pleased with such a poor choice to lead our country!

Pull out your guns allright, you're about to be slammed by REAL AMERICANS who believe this country can do better than cheap, scary, intimidating blowhards for the Corporate status quo!

68% of REAL americans voted for Obama because we wanted change from your pile o' crap! 76% of REAL Americans believe this country can do better and believe Single-payer is the way to do it, you've overplayed your hand so far it is the real pathetic thing to consider here, all you want is to fail Obama, clear as day and you have no legs to stand on anymore.

Enjoy the dustbin, it's clear you want nothing that improves this countries citizens well being~!

here, here

Obama does not know SH*T about "running the economy." I don't think the man has EVER held a real job in the private sector. To him and his ilk, the economy is something for them to squeeze and reshape.
Obama and his wife live in a small bubble world where everyone they know views everything through the lens of racism, hatred of the private sector, and belief in government. They sit around breathing each other's farts and never get any mental fresh air. Now he's the President, he's surrounded himself with yes-men and people who will use him like a fool (and he'll never realize it), and if you disagree with him you are WRONG because he "won" and you're probably racist to boot.

AND, your last Candidate sees the same strategy in afghani

During a visit to Afghanistan, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) called for a troop surge in the Helmand province, arguing that increasing the number of Marines there could lead to “significantly more success.” McCain declined to say exactly how many more troops he thought were needed.

Failure will be forever tagged as "Obama Doctrine", he is failing and will continue to fail. The pace of the failures is accelerating substantially and the shifting of positions points to a genuine panic in the White House that they are losing the golden opportunity that was given to them by all you Dipsh!ts that voted for Hope and Change. It seems ironic that as things progress, more and more people are disavowing their votes, it is just too bad they couldn't have seen the signs that pointed to an unexperienced, romper room, childish, self centered piece of work OBOZO is before they stepped into the voting booth.

What happens when a president is very skilled in deceptively cloaking these less-than-altruistic means in rhetorical "moral garments" and his lies finally start catching up with him, destroying his credibility? When a president has never actually run anything successfully, not even his own paper route or a PTA meeting or a small town's city.

He becomes irrelevant, ineffective and a lame duck in his first year of office, now we wait for the inevitable scandals and finally the end of the tragic comedy called Obamas presidency. Already we see other Dems that have their a** on the line in the next election, abandoning the Liar in Chief , why sacrifice their political career to save a Do nothing, Know nothing, Self centered, unqualified clown.
