You and Øbama be as flexible as you want, together, when he's sent packing in January 2013. The only way the country will survive an Øbama second term is if there are veto-proof Republican majorities in the House and Senate.
The only way to move America forward is with a Republican-proof Congress. Obama's re-election is a foregone conclusion.

He'll do it when some more really bad economic news comes out and he needs to change the subject.

I wish we had a President instead of a pure political hack.

Both Russia and the U.S. need to be more flexible. I'm glad Obama gave this assurance.

Obama's tepid support for same-sex marriage has no impact on current law and should further frustrate the gay community ... By leaving the issue up to individual states, he reinforces the current law and shows he isn't serious about resolving the issue by Federal mandate ... The move was purely political as Obama defined marriage as "between a man and a woman" in 2008 and is merely designed to set up Republicans as straw men.

Obama will say anything for personal political gain and is the ultimate Washington insider. He has no real convictions regarding anything except growing the size of government in your life.

Sorry, gay Americans, but Obama gave you hope (albeit dashed) and NO CHANGE.

I think Biden was a tactical move to have him as vice president because he has no clue on what goes on.

is christian about bigotry? Give the mexicans more credit - surely they have figured that they republicans can't stand them. Why would the president be interested in Sharia law?

All this proves is that the haters just throw sht at him and their criticisms have no basis in facts.
