I have not kept up with it much because i am pretty young. But from what I know I dont mind obama being in office. But i DO think that we could have someone better. I dont think that he is the worst, but he is definitely not the best. I really should read up on the other candidates though to see what they have to offer. I

I do wonder if younger people are even aware of the loss of freedom that many of us older people see so readily.  I wonder if it is time for parents to mix in a little of the "we had it better when I was a kid" in with the more traditional "you think you had it rough, when I was a kid...".  There are many simple freedoms that I no longer have today that those younger than me may never have experienced and will not miss because of such.  Some of these freedoms I speak of may seem slight and not worth mentioning to those that never experienced them but I say to you that when you take away something from an American, they will not like it at all, no matter how small.

Would you like to explain a little more? Because I am interested. What freedoms have you lost over the years?
The ability to purchase or not purchase our own health insurance for one.  The security of not being arrested and held without charge.  There are more, but I am fairly sure you won't listen or care.

Save all of your Rush Limaugh talking points. He will win in November in a landslide. I do not understand the outrage people have falsely given themselves with his healthcare plan.

Typical response...
Dummy: obama gonna make people without insurance buy it
Me: don't you have insurance? Won't you be able to keep it with no effects?
Dummy: yes, but Rush Limbaugh and fox news said this sounded smart

 :wave: why does race have anything to do with him doing a horrible job. bush created a huge deficit but obama spent more than bush did in eight years. obama ran deficit into the gornd in 3yrs. promised to get troops out of iraq sure did on on bushes already negociated time line. has done nothing to help create jobs or the economy. as far as racism calling people cracker and so forth sounds extremely racist to me. as far as obama a community organiser is just a title given to rabble rousers and trouble makers. the man had no executive experience and it sure shows. his passive foriegn policy has allowed iran and possabably korea further their nuclear programs. so lets see he sucks with on foriegn polocyand has done nothing for the economy. has ran the deficit to astronomic proportions. well lets see should we give him more time. not no but hell no!!!!!!!

I actually like President Obama. Mostly for a lot of selfish reasons I guess. The changes to Health Insurance have saved my life and I'd like to see him stay in office long enough to finalize those programs. If someone else gets in and decides to rip all that out - I'm a goner. He does some things I don't like, but every president does. No one president is worse or better than any other if you really think about it. Some cluster of masses somewhere in the country will always hate what a president does no matter who he is. The upcoming Republic Candidates actually terrify me though... Can I still use FC if I move to Canada?  ;D

And plenty of jobs have been created under Obama's term. My city is about to explode with jobs because of government contracts that were put into motion a few months ago.. I might have to go work in a factory making military machines but I guess it's still a job. In addition, unemployment is currently in the 8% range, as low as it was before Obama got into office as per an article in the Times stated last week.

OMG!I can't believe there's a bunch of morons on this site!U want 2trade President Obama 4those 4bumbling asses running 4president?I think U all just want 2believe all those racist crackers& their stupid lies b/c Obama's only a half breed &not a fully white!They don't even know what they're talking about?The debate about the preg. pill;that should not even b an issue b/c women have a choice & if you're a guy you'll never know what women go through when they have no options b/c they don't have that stick hanging between their legs!Men have it easy,they just dump their junk; bang,wham,bang,thank U mam!Ya,those white morons running,want women 2keep their legs crossed,yet it never fails that there's always some wana b president dud,doing the nasty behind closed doors! So,I wish they would shutup about morals when they have none,whether past or present,I know that those men have sinned@1 time or another in their life time!So,republican false christens,stop quoting scriptures in which you've violated &disobeyed repeatedly!The debates sicken me,when religion is used to bait less intelligent voters b/c they've been brained washed by their own party!There's a reason why church& state r separate,&I wish goverment would BAND religion in ALL Political areas!Maybe if we kept church out of state,the voters would vote in a more logical,common sense,& intelligent manner.Not,with faith,superstitions,bible banging,miss guided feelings!Over all to me,REP.candidates running 4president,is a line up of a bunch of losers!Obama or maybe a woman president is the best choice!I always say,as an independent voter,I don't pick sides,I pick the 1that is the best 4the job! The only way,i would vote for 1 of those bumbling Reps is if 1of them step up &promise 2use his billions 2help reduce the US Debut!But we know,that'll never happen.If u think about it those functions,need monies 2support the candidate.People donating millions& trillions of $ 4that 1person could have been use 2get the US OUT OF THE RED & bring the economy back!Think about it,people r willing 2dip deep in2 their pockets,scrap their last penny 2hire billionaires 2run the country?They think they'r good enough 2bPresident but helping out his fellow Americans is not in the cards!As 4President Obama,he's done & continues to work on the plan from the beginning.People r just complaining b/c not everything was done exactly they way they wanted it or not happened fast enough.Hello, stupid Reps,the MAIN REASON WHY OBAMA DIDN'T GET IT ALL DONE ON TIME IS BECAUSE YOUR PARTY BLOCKED ANY SOLUTION DUMPED ON THAT TABLE.U don't see the accomplishments b/c OBAMA is humble,he doesn't flaunt or show off like others.Ya,remember when every 1 was totally stressed out b/c the tax cuts hadn't been passed 4 the new year &they dragged it all the wayup 2the last min?Ya,President Obama,said every1 is not going home 4x-mas until it is passed!Rep.voters,it was your party's FAULT 2drag it that far.W/an attitude like that do U think that your party was thinking about U?I don't think so!Republicans holding out on that is not an example of
protecting or supporting the people!I see it as a form of abuse to 2the people.It's like,you're drowning but the coast guard is dropping the lifesaver down 2U &suddenly pull it backup,over&over again!When this was happening what were U thinking,knowing that possibly,if both parties don't agree,your taxes would go up 20%?!Again,your party was not going 2sigh it!Only reason why they caved is because they knew that if they didn't the people will blame them 4doing nothing &obama would look so good.They would look like a bunch of billionaire smelly,dirty rats!They didn't sign 2save U rep voters,they signed so they wouldn't b seen as the bad party.I kind of wish they didn't,b/c mayb now Obama would look better than the rat Rep candidates.Another signal that indicates the Reps r not 4the people,they continue 2say,they want 2make Obama a 1term president!I didn't like Bush as president but i still
respected him& tolerated the stupid things he did in office.It's so unprofessional 2say U want 2kick the President out&you're a candidate 4the role?I want 2vote 4mature adults not a bunch of morons pointing,name calling,plotting against obama.When the Rep Party block Obama,we, the people suffer.& U rep voters blame your party not the President.They r the cause every time 4slow progress.What I like about President Obama the most,is not once have I seen him lower his dignity by spewing negative,words 2the other parties,never losing his cool,& never joining in on the grade school name calling level the reps are in!A President should be 4the people no,matter their party,a President should be mature &professional in &out the office,a President should keep his cool even if there is chaos.I don't see what U see in those candidate they're so flawed,w/no dignity,& no soul!   :peace:

Ya know I could care less what color he is or what religion he is. He could be green with pink polka dots and pray to the giant spaghetti monster for all I care. I do however think he's an idiot who is running this country into the ground.

@ raven1114:

You really should FIX YOUR POST, so that this (following) statement shows YOU as the author, instead of making it appear that tantricia44 made this comment, too.
The WAY that you posted her quote with your reply makes your response look as though it is part of tantricia44's post that you are quoting.

RE: Tantricia44:  And you call the Rep. Candidates Raciists? Boy, now I ve heard it all. Just because a person is of one race doesnt mean that they should vote for or not vote for a person of their same race. doesnt mean that person is going to do a good job. Just look at what has happened to America since Obama took office. The economy has tanked, the value of home -tanked, jobs-gone, peolpes jobs-gone, price of groceries thru the roof.......need I say more. Obama has not done anything to help the white/blue collar worker yet. I guess if your rich or on welfare you are more likely to keep him around. My vote is to get him out ASAP and not because of his color, but because of his lousy job!

I agree with you whole heartly.  The biggest mistake ever......  If people don't wise up the usa will not exist anymore.  Government is taking over and getting more involved in our everyday lives that is not right.  They are suppose to be working  for us but they are getting richer while the rest of us are getting poorer.  This country is being brought down from within by Obama which is his plan and people are not openning there eyes to what he is doing.  Devil works in so many ways and he can sound so sweet...Better wake up before its all lost.  He is not right at all.   :cat:

Sure, If I had health insurance then it would not affect me. But that doesn't change the fact that it still forces OTHER people who don't have health insurance to buy it, regardless of whether they can afford it. In fact, I really don't care what the government forces other people to buy. The government forcing anyone to buy anything, in principle, is something I disagree with wholeheartedly.

He didn't walk into anything, he ran into begging/borrowing/stealing all the way to get there.  All he has managed to do is make a bad situation much worse -- increasing the very same policies that caused the problem in the first place.  Anybody that wants that job as bad as Obama did had better damned well be able to do it at least half assed.  Obama, sadly, hasn't been able to manage even that.
There are only 10 types of people in the world:  those who understand binary, and those who don't.
