at this point in time, Bush was doing better...even with the media on his ass daily.
If he even makes it to the end of his term....

Democrats, if you like your Senate majority, you can keep you Senate majority, Period.

Hopefully they will impeach his treasonous ass out of office.

Then you are one of the most deluded Democrats out there! You get your jollies pretending that forced charity at other people's expense makes you some sort of saint. It doesn't. It just makes you a hypocrite. You are not greedy or illiterate, just stupid and pompous.

You can't just vote yourself other people's money and everything will come up roses. Uncle Sam can't make life "fair" by redistributing wealth. Children believe in those kinds of fairy tales, not adults.

riiiiight .... corporate-owned and controlled just doesn't fit in with your extreme liberal-hating world-view, so therefore Bush could not have been given any passes on starting BS wars and starting us down the road to massive violations of personal privacy rights etc..- even though he clearly WAS given those passes for several years by the "liberal" media.

Get it right...

I don't have a liberal-hating, world view...

I have a Progressive-hating, Constitution-loving, American view.

I am disgusted by the level of ignorance and hate that people who claim to be conservative spread out. I have not agreed with many of this President's policies but I am patriotic enough to know that it is a good thing when the world has a positive opinion of our President and this country. Some of you on here have a lot of built up anger that is being misdirected towards President Obama. I've been around long enough to remember how bad things were when George W. Bush was in the White house and how we were seen around the world. I can say thank you President Obama, why can the rest of you so called "conservatives"?
Yes, it is a good thing when the world has a positive opinion of our President unless that opinion was formed by observing that our President demonstrates that he is wiling to ignore if not actively undermine American interests. We have a President who welcomes illegal immigrants, even bringing states to court if they attempt to address the problem themselves. He is intent on borrowing funds from overseas to provide for their welfare, including health care. He will ignore the advice of Congress and relax economic sanctions against Obama's enemies when they appear to be working.

Keeping world peace is good for everyone......or would you have rather we nuked Syria?
America has no business getting involved in Syria's civil war. Supplying the rebels with ANY resources, including the WEAPONS Obama sent to them only fuels the fire.

The rebels in Syria contain enemies of America, including Al Qaida and giving them ANY assistance is TREASON!!

Peace can only be brought about by CONSENT, not by bullets, not by nukes. Unless, of course one wishes to totally wipe out anyone who disagrees with them, otherwise, there will always be some kind of conflict.

Bush was at 25% after the media beat him over the head for 8 years.
Obama has tanked his Presidency all by himself in a matter of weeks. Even with the media still trying to help him.
If he didn't have his media cheerleaders, his approval would be in the single digits.
?? Media beat him over the head??? You must be one of the GOP's lapdogs who think that mild praise is beating him over the head. The media could not have been more in his camp. Every day we heard what a great job he was doing in spite of all that happened. No one even questioned his decisions, no matter how absurd. When bush said the economy was great, the media reported to the millions bush put out of work, that the only reason they couldn't find a job was because they were too lazy. When bush wanted to start wars, even the New York Times took its front page articles straight from the White House to drum up support. No one even mentioned the numerous speeches bush gave where he was slurring his words badly, indicating he was drunk or on drugs. Not even a mention, when everyone in the world could see it.

When Clinton was president, we daily heard how ugly Chelsea was. When bush's daughters were repeatedly arrested, it barely made a mention. No one in the media uncovered bush's criminal arrest record in Texas. When bush signed the Pat Act, no one in the media even mentioned that it removed all rights from all American Citizens. The media never mentioned the direct self-contradictions of the USSC when they threw out the 2000 election and appointed bush. The media did a "count" to report what would have been the results if the law had been followed. The media initially reported that bush would have won. Later they finally admitted the results came out right after the 9/11 attacks, and they made an editorial decision not to report the truth. The media openly admits they lied to protect bush.

Notice, I am not defending Obama, simply reporting that the media fell all over itself to protect bush. The list is a lot longer, but you get the idea.

Once again, Don Joe presents an alternate reality, obvious to anyone who actually lived during the 1990s-2000s.

I understand it's hard for you to appreciate any reality other than that presented on Fox News. Why bother remembering what happened, when you can simply listen to Fox News and find out what Rupert wants you to think about any issue.
