"Conclusion:
During the first couple of days of the protests and violence, Obama did not weigh in publicly, but by a few days in, he was not "silent" -- and a week later, took a tougher stance."

At least state the conclusion of the article you referenced.

Obama had 4 years to change the country for the better. Can anyone name one thing this guy has done that's good for America?

I need not explain how he and his corrupt Chicago mafia handlers have made everything worse. Simply look around with your own lying eyes for proof.

We need real jobs, not McWalmart jobs.

We also don't need the Obama Administration continuing on it's current path to oblivion without having to worry about re-election. This would be dangerous to our constitution's survival and our pocketbooks.

Romney is owned by the same international bankers as Obama destroying America from overseas.

However by hittig the reset button on the corrupt, power crazed, Obama administration it gives more Americans time to wake up to what is presently happening to America.

Obama may be likeable but he is incompetent.

In some aspects Obama is right when he says ((("you didn't build/create that, government did.")))

Let's look at what this administration has created in 4 short years and imagine what he can do with 8:

- Socialist eugenics based health care (((Obamacare)))

-NDAA (((National Defense Authorization Act))) where Americans can now be disappeared without a jury

- Out of control (((Crony Capitalism))) where government picks winners and losers based on payouts -not the free market eg. Solyndra, GM, MF Global, Numerous Bank Bailouts, No Prosecution of criminal Banksters

-(((Fast and Furious))) and other suspected domestic false flags to argue for abolishing the 2nd ammendmant

- Massive (((TSA expansion))) onto America's streets and armed (((survellance drones/now blimps))) operating over US territory.

-((UN control of U.S. military troops to invade))) Egypt, Syria, parts of Africa, etc. for offshore bankers aka Nazism

- The idea that nothing can be built without (((more government bureaucrats and global warming regulations/taxes))) getting in the way

-(((Throwing Israel -an important ally- under the bus))) by destabalizing all the county's around it but not offering them any assurances of protection

- A (((continuation of Bush's failed policies))), like not getting out of Iraq, Afghanastan, and no closing of Guantanamo torture camps

-(((Polaraized race relations))) eg. Disrespectful hadling of the Treyvon Martin family after his murder -opportunistic my son would have looked like Treyvon soundbite- and media staged racial infighting between Americans setting up for social conflict right before the 2012 election

-(((No Proof Obama supposedly got Osama)))) America was never really allowed to see the body/proof ; -)

-(((Defunding of NASA))) No exploration of the stars for the U.S., leave that to countries that are exceptional

-(((No Plan/ or Budget to Fix Anything going forward if he is re-elected )))-always says what you want to hear, then does the exact opposite hoping you''ll forget by the next speech -(((Sociopathic Liar)))

-(((Obamaphone)))-Massive expansion of this program for his dependant voting base

-(((Unlimited QE3 leading to hyperinflation))) Dollar is rapidly losing purchasing power resulting in skyrocketing food and gas prices

- And of course my personal favorite (((legalizing the illegals))) temporarily until the election is over but not once addressing true immigration reform

- The list goes on.

Is this change you can believe in? Is this what you really want another 4 years of?

As Donald Trump would say: Obama you're fired:



Too bad Ron Paul chickened out. I'd still vote for him if he changed his mind however.

Effectively, he was silent. His only real impact seems to be lying to inflame Muslim radicals in twenty countries in covering his dereliction of duty concerning our Ambassador and people in Libya. Oh, yes, and turning the Middle East over to radical Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas elements, totally reversing the gains before him in the war on terror.

Obama as Obama is not bad, it is clique, which is behind him and they make many of these troubles and problems. Clique of Romney is naturally worse.
It would be optimally, if dr Ron Paul and his people would be in government of Obama, they would help to this boy to make proper changes in proper direction. Certainly that Obama and this old clique behind him will ruin country too, maybe not very quickly, like Romney will do, but they will do it too. Dr Ron Paul and his people are only chance for USA and the world and it would be optimal, if Obama for good of USA would make deal with dr Ron Paul.
