Over 27 times as fast. Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane.
27 times faster, it would be doing 7,555 MPH!

If he was actually doing his job he would not have the lowest poll numbers of any president EVER at this point in their term. There are even democrats that will not support him now. Go look at the recent 9th district election in NY City. It was a referendum on BO.

Nothing except he is the worst president since Carter and he was bad. Still shake my head and can not believe that this country voted for him. Well, you all got what you deserved, problem is that you pushed it all on us too. Thanks a whole lot you idiots.

If you watched the republican debates on fox network you will see that they don't give him equal time or anything. The republican ticket will either be Mitt Romney or that Perry guy, the others are there, but just barely. Ron Paul would definitely rock the boat if he were elected. That's what the country needs in my opinion, not another rich ex governor or ex senator looking to further his agenda. ;)

you are an idiot...Of course that is a prerequisite to vote for a Republican these days..look at the candidates and the tea party!..What a joke they are.Don't blame Obama.UNETHICAL BANKS AND GWB GOT US INTO THIS MESS! Bush started an unnecessary unfunded war in Iraq based on a lie to enrich Haliburton and his rich chronies. He disregarded the fact that we had no way to pay for it..and then at the same time..He lowered taxes for the rich..Any other President who has started a war has raised taxes to pay for it!..Its a NO BRAINER!...If you are a billionaire..you would be smart to vote republican..if not..you are stupid..
GOP does not care about the class of people that live in Kansas..Can't you all figure that out by now??..

A response to Obama:

enact the 'fair tax' so all Americans share in the tax burden.

I feel that Mr. Romney might actually give us "change we can believe in". Unlike our current President, who simply used the phrase to rally the young,gullible, and uninformed.

Support for President Obama does not necessarily mean lack of knowledge or understanding. It may simply suggest a difference of opinion in the direction of things for a number of different reasons.

Someone needs to be the snitch and report this to Obama's AttackWatch website! The Dictator is on standby to refute your claims of anything other than his superior job at fleeing the public.

Are you an adult? And if so, are you serious? I love how obvious the Limbaugh/Hannity fans are because they completely mimic the immature form of extremist rhetoric over reasoned/informed argument. If anything you're doing yourself a disservice by wasting time looking like a weirdo when there are countless real reasons to attack the current administration.

But getting informed is hard, so you'll keep talking like Obama is a cartoon bad guy. Sad.
