I have to disagree with the last part of your statement.

Mom and Pop, as business owners, would have much more insight into running a "business" as opposed to someone that has absolutely no experience at all.

<quoted text>You sound like a racist....Obama is your president , and you should support him. If you don't like him as President , don't vote for him....that's democracy . Seems the rightwing of politics can't deal with life unless they're in charge...
I don't support anyone I can't respect and I lost all respect for Obama when he had his opponents kicked off the primary ballot in Chicago by using dirty tricks.

I didn't vote for him when he ran for the Senate and I damned sure didn't vote for him when he ran for president.

My Freedom of Speech allows me to express my displeasure of Obama and his agendas. Deal with it.

That is small compared to what Bush did to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bush takes the whole American armed forces to kill or capture Bin Laden and failed leaving thousands dead and Obama just sent 2 helicopters and commandos to kill Bin Laden.

I remember when Clinton was still president he tried to kill Sadam Hussein by bombing his house in Iraq but he survived because Sadam has an underground bunker sheild under his house that is why Clinton financed the development of the Bunker Buster bombs.

Reagan also tried to kill Kadafi by bombing his house in Libya but he survived.

America is in it's worse shape than most anytime in it's history and instead of the right wing working to solve our problems Mitch McConnell says their number one priority was to make sure Obama was not re-elected. Not the economy, not jobs, not debt, not to get us out of the wars but to make sure Obama was not re-elected.
They completely abandoned the American people to seek their own power and the wealthy's agenda.
I once posted the link of Fox News first time they blamed Obama for the economy. It was 6 weeks after he took the oath.
Sounds very familiar. Exactly the same thing is happening in Australia..........and it's heavily influenced by a person that controls 85% of Australian media , and also a fair chunk of US media.........

Any president would like to have your respect , naturally , but they'll survive without it. You should support the office of president , even if you didn't vote for the man.....it is very much in the interests of your country , you family and yourself......

Your freedom of speech should never be abused.....but only you will know if your freedom of speech is influenced by an unhealthy agenda , by people who's only concern is to get into the seat of power .....we all have the responsibility to form proper opinions , without being influenced by agendas that are driven by either media greed or personal interest for specific groups.......not easy sometimes.

I support the office, just not the man in it.

The interests of my country, my family, and myself demand I do not support, but rather oppose, someone trying to destroy all three.

Not easy for you, perhaps.

At 70 years of age, I know well what this country was, I remember the respect it commanded abroad. I served in the Navy, during the height of the Cold War, visiting many ports of call. I saw first hand how America was perceived in a dozen countries.

America has been on a down hill slide since 1968 and it seems every Democrat to hold any federal office for the past 20 years has herniated themselves trying to accelerate the plunge into the abyss and the news media has gleefully joined in the push.

And at the height of the cold war what chilling warning did Eisenhower give in his farewell address? Beware of the military industrial complex. Here is an excerpt.

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist."

In 2002 they planned the invasion of Iraq. All contracts went no bid and given to Haliburton. A Republican President gave that warning. His warning came true.

It's not Obama, it's not liberals. It's the rich and powerful.
