Obama’s Biggest Failure: Obama Explains Where He Feels He Let Americans Down

Obama's biggest failure

Obama’s biggest failure is a topic that opens up a lot of debate. Democrats may say that a lack of prosecution of Wall Street bigwigs or the lack of Medicare for all the Obamacare legislation are Obama’s biggest failures to date.

Republicans, of course, see it differently. And — despite the fact Obama’s biggest failure isn’t being the first president ever to reform the broken healthcare system, the capture and assassination of Osama bin Laden, the rescue of the auto industry, preventing a second Great Depression, or turning around stunning job losses under his predecessor — the GOP counts Obama’s missteps as legion.

But ask the President what Obama’s biggest failure is, and none of the above mentioned issues comes into play. While Dems want more financial oversight and regulation and a more comprehensive healthcare system through federal and state programs and Republicans just want anyone at all else to run the country, the Commander-in-Chief had a different perspective during a Univision interview.

Yesterday, President Obama sat down with Univision’s Jorge Ramos to reach out to Hispanic voters on the Latin network, and the subject of Obama’s biggest failure arose. The President admitted to Ramos that he felt lack of immigration reform was the largest oversight of his presidency but explains that he did not anticipate such intense pushback from the other side of the aisle.

Obama explains:

“Jorge, as you remind me, my biggest failure so far is we haven’t gotten comprehensive immigration reform done yet. What I confess I did not expect, and so I’m happy to take responsibility for being naive here, is that Republicans who had previously supported comprehensive immigration reform — my opponent in 2008, who had been a champion of it and who attended these meetings — suddenly would walk away. That’s what I did not anticipate.”

Do you agree lack of comprehensive immigration reform is Obama’s biggest failure?

    Obama's biggest failure is not getting the US out of Afganistan, to the tune of one American soldier death per day. All for nothing except lining the pockets of those who make money on war.

    Hmmm is it just me or is this article slanted way to the left? Having said that, I did get a chuckle. Odummer's biggest failure is that he has yeet to take responsibility for anything that he has NOT accomplished. Blaming the Repubs once again. Is anyone but me tired of hearing this?

    Obama's biggest failure this year will be not kicking Romney's ass in the election by a triple-digit margin. Ha!

    bush was the worst president we ever had,and he was in office for 8 years.he ran this country in the hole with the war he started.he didnt even go into the rght country.all you rep. can do is wine that he isnt fixing it fast enough.

  6. Linda Shadrick

    Three years later and it is still Bush's fault. I didn't buy a tag for my car and got a ticket. I told the judge it was Bush's fault and I still had to pay the ticket.

    During Obama's campaign against Bush, Obama said that he would run the most transparent presidency ever, I guess that why he has sealed all of his personal records! The way I see it is You cannot believe anything that he says!

  10. Kevin Ives

    yes i am tired of hearing Repukes feigning that they have done anything but obstruct any movement forward for jobs creation. You don;t have to be left to see what the right is doing. you just have to have half a brain. and, considering your statement, it is clear the half a brain analogy is spot on.

  11. Brent Smith

    Obamas biggest failure is his last four years as President. And the fact our media is covering this up is atrocious!

  12. Brent Smith

    funny, as soon as Obama got in office and learned politics 101, he suppressed everything he said about Bush and ran with the current plans set in motion by Bush- under the radar of the media of course. The Financial meltdown was not a republican issue. it was a banking issue largely due to lose loan restrictions implemented by the Clinton administration. NY times has a story about this, but I'm sure you don't want to know the truth.

  13. Marcos Batista

    I like how he talks about immigration on the spanish channel.can anyone see he is just saying what the hispanic community wants to hear want to hear.

  14. GarynNil Capristo

    Obama is the worst president since Jimmy Carter and maybe worse than Carter. but the president that should be tried for treason is Bill Clinton. Clinton sold us out to China, he changed regulation of the banks in order for them to make risky loans, he opened the vaults to fanny may and Freddy Mac demanding they make loans available to non qualified borrowers, he started the "share the wealth program", started the global economy. Clinton made the rich people even richer by taking mfg. jobs to other countries Clinton also likes to take credit for balancing the budget, but if you remember, the republican congress shut down the government until Clinton signed a balanced budget proposal, and the republican congress opened the internet which exploded with new industries.

    If I were to cut my finger off (provided I do not bleed to death) Yes I would heal but it would take time and it would be a long journey before I would be able to adjust to life being normal and better again. My point is it took eight years to destory a national surplus, so it goes without saying the road to recovery will be long and slow yet in four years we have made progress. Name one bill the republicans worked to pass for everyday hard working people as a teacher I can tell you the cuts education has suffered

    Yet electing leaders like Mitt, Bush, and Ryan will be Wonderful?

    lol none of your comments and racism will make him lose r win… he has done more to bring this country out of the hole thand mitt romney n bush put together…n you all call yourselves children of god then you should know only god makes things possible…the government think they can cover up every little thing but what's done in the dark shall come to the light..and yes I'm votin.

    Obama's biggest failure (and I am/was a supporter) is his inability to bring parties together to compromise. There is no bipartisan appraoch to anything as he touted there would be 4 years ago. He may believe in it I'm sure but he's not able to make it happen so nothing gets done. Also, not having a larger input to the Healthcare reform and allowing others to craft it.

    To the Honorable President of the US. I happen to have the gift of persuasive linguistics and would like to write for you as I support you in an area of republicans whom have cursed at me from their cars as I have an OBAMA for president on my rear bumper. It does not make sense that these people are republican as the area I live in holds no high paying jobs or any manufacturing to speak of. So please consider my offer to write for you-just send me a topic to write about and an address to forward my finished article. Thank You

    My biggest problem with the candidates is the failure to own up to their own mistakes, why blame another party, and the repubs are just as much to blame, when they make a mistake they blame it on someone or something that has to do with the opposite party. Own up to it, say that you as a candidate failed, and I would probably put your name down on the ticket. But, lets not be biased here, the problem with voters is leaning to the left or leaning to the right, you gotta be unbiased and play strengths and weaknesses of both parties, that is the only way to vote, otherwise your voting an ignorant ticket. My prob with alot of dems for example is that they keep whining that repubs aren't going to be their for the middle class that no republican should ever be elected, the prob with repubs is they do the SAME thing, dems shouldn't be elected because obama raised the deficit! its like come on. grow a brain people.

    Two months ago his biggest failure was an inability to tell Americans stories. Now he wants to apologize to any illegal immigrants he might have offended by refusing to waive naturalization requirements. Clearly a man of "fundamental values" and unimpeachable integrity.

    Obama had a Demublican senate and house his first two years–this is one he can't blame on the republocrats. He wasn't looking for the Hispanic vote in 2009 or 2010, but needs it now. And of course, all his failings are someone else's fault.

    I gotta say that it's very suspicious that he says he failed to accomplish good immigration policy in front of an hispanic audience—I also would like to point out that this is a very left leaning article. Also Hispanic people I know want illegal immigration stopped too-! they feel it's bad for the country , and taking their jobs too!—They want illegal immigration stopped not made easier—-They are here legally and they expect the same from other immigrants.

    As the 2012 presidential election season heats up, new campaign finance figures reveal Wall Street is heavily investing in President Obama. According to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, the Democratic National Committee and Obama have together raised more than $14 million from the securities and investment industry, compared to nearly $9.5 million contributed to his Republican rival, Mitt Romney. This makes Wall Street the third most generous industry donating to Obama’s re-election efforts. The news comes amidst ongoing investigations by the Justice Department into massive financial fraud by some of the nation’s largest banks. Yet four years after the 2008 economic crisis, not a single top Wall Street executive has gone to jail.

    The way the country is so divided on issues does not give me any hope for a fair goverment in the future. I think we all are going to have to revolt in some way to really change things. Lets start by getting rid if the fat cat do nothing lazy senators. The house is no better. Long term politicians need to GO NOW! They have not helped us. So a new president with ideas is NOT our answer. The internal makeup that is dead to change and work together for the common good IS our problem. How about we start there.

    The lack of job growth and 6 trillion dollar deficit is just the beginning of his failures! @ Karen you can only blame Bush for Iraq. Other than that it was called for after 9/11. It was 700 billion for Iraq what about Obama spending! Some people are so blinded.

    Obama had a SUPER majority in Congress, meaning nothing the GOP could say or do could delay the libbies in any way, when he took office and still couldn't get anything accomplished. Once the libs lost Ted Kennedy's vacated seat and lost their super majority, it then became the GOP's fault he couldn't get anything accomplished. As Barry wrote in his book, his mission is to bring the USA to his knees, and God forbid that man get back into office to finish the job.

    Under Bush we had a RECORD 56 months in a row of job growth and unprecedented economic growth, and this after 9/11. It wasn't until Bawney Fwank and Chris Dodd tried to Socialize the housing industry…and kept trying for 5 years until it worked…that they managed to torpedo our economy. The liberals then blamed the consequences of their actions on Bush, and THAT has been the koolaid flavor of the month ever since.

    we the people need to put a choke chain on the government, we gave them there jobs and they messed it up.

    i also think the government needs to give the people the money not these banks and wall street, hell they lost the money and when Obama bailed them out, I'm sure they lost that too…..i think if there's a bail out bail out the lower class so they can spend money to bring things back up, like real estate, economy, hell I think there should only be one type of healthcare plan also…I'm not going to call healthcare Obama care cuz that just stupid, WE NEED REAL RESULTS! not bullshit lies this country wasn't founded on stupidity people, and NO ONE I MEAN NO ONE SHOULD GET AWAY WITH MESSING IT UP, they should have a law that declares if a president messes Stuff up, HE CAN GO TO PRISON!

    To those voting a straight democratic ticket, please make sure that you choose Pres Obama first. You have to do this first and then proceed to choose the straight democratic ticket. If you don't your vote will not count. The Republicans don't want you to know this and I think that it stinks that people in this country will resort to dirt. I pray that this election be ran fairly. So please make sure that you pay attention when you are in the booth making your selection!

    The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised "Meet The Press'.
    From Sunday's 07 Sept. 2008 11 : 48 : 04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.
    General Bill Gann' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
    The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…
    During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It".
    NOW GET THIS!
    'Senator Obama replied :
    "As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides". "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.." "The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing."
    (ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?)
    Obama continued : "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love.
    It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails – - – perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments……"

    When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past".
    "Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path.
    I, for one, am speechless!

    How insulting to the United States of American people, to have a president that lies about the deaths of our consulate personnel, lies about being warned, lies about a UTube video and then is more upset about Romney calling him out for apologizing for American free speech than the fact 4 outstanding Americans were killed.

  59. David Dugas

    blame the Republicans and a few Democrats for the credit Rating falling from AAA to AA+. Congress voted to raise the federal debt ceiling, which caused or drop in credit. Remember it was the Republicans that said and I quote " It should be our top political priority over the next two years to deny President Obama a second term" then when asked about it he says "yes my single most important political goal and that of every active Republican in the country" and this was stated by Mitch McConnell a Republican Minority leader in the Senate. Shouldn't the top goal be to help the country, guess not

    Watch this video were Obama answers all questions the Republicans throw at him. This was without a teleprompter. This video is why I respect him and will continue to fight for him. It is an hour long but it is worth it as I am sure it will answer any question you have also

    HUGObama's biggest failure? Hmmm, let's see. There's so many to choose from. I know. How about the fact that he has failed at every opportunity to act Presidential? Bin Laden? There's not a true American living that wouldn't have pulled the trigger. ObamaCare? The staggering costs are just beginning to surface. He should have let GM declare bankruptcy at the beginning, which they eventually did, but the American taxpayer will never see $27 Billion of our money. In truth, "Barry" likes to say that under his Administration, there were 4.5 Million jobs "created". He neglects to say that 5.5 Million jobs were lost. Net jobs? Negative 1 Million jobs. For example : 96,000 jobs were added in August, but 368,000 people left the work force. I'm sure it was just an oversight. It's hard to keep all the lies straight.

    Immigration reform is UNIMPORTANT, as America NEEDS to DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS, young and old, and BUILD A FENCE on the Southern border…the universal health care is good, because ALL developed nations have one, and it's ABOUT TIME America caught up…the REAL big failure is a broken economy, and JOBS for AMERICANS living in AMERICA, NOT ILLEGAL ALIENS FROM LATIN AMERICA OR ILLEGAL ALIENS ILLEGALLY LIVING IN THE STATES!!!!

What makes him think that anybody, ESPECIALLY immigrants who came here LEGALLY, are the least bit concerned about some damn immigration reform, when neither American citizens or LEGAL IMMIGRANTS don't even want these illegal alien parasites around? This man has NO idea what Americans need, and he is NOT qualified to be in office for one term or two terms…he has GOT TO GO, ASAP…otherwise, America will become the most developed THIRD WORLD NATION (under HIS presidency)! #NObama2012

In order for the Bankers to take on this false paper, they put them into bonds and sold them with the Fanny and Freddie's Government backing. Worthless paper created by you F-ing Libs. Bush tried to stop it for years, except he battled a Dem led congress and senate. Oh let's blame Bush for the economy! Let me see wasn't there a terrorist Attack on NY that killed over 3400 people, not to mention the people killed in PA and DC! The stock market fell 3000 points that year! Clinton's only claim to fame is sticking cigars up the ass of a 20 year old intern and lying about it. He had a Republican led Congress that forced him to keep Reagan's economic plans going forward. He sat on his hands, that is why he had so much time to chase tail! Now we come to your BOY! Oduma is the biggest liar in the history of the World. He blames everyone for his failures! He had a Dem Congress and Senate for his first years in Office. He could have easily fixed allot of things including the economy. But his first years in Office he took a World Tour bowing to his fellow Muslims, and basically making US World Policy a sham! He also created many Bureaucratic positions, with various Titles of Czars (a Communist term). Most of those positions were handed out to his Political Financial Backers and Radical Extremists that followed his view of turning this country into a Socialistic Welfare dependent Society. He grew up mostly outside of the USA in his early years forming his Radical Socialistic/Communist views!
    Under him, people needing Welfare has increased at a greater rate then anytime in history! Peoples incomes have dropped by 25%. gas has tripled, food prices have increase by 20%, he has created a new race divide, and most recently because of his Foreign Policies, we have 4 Americans Killed by Muslim Zealots! And he and you Libs are still blaming BUSH! If you all really like living in a Communist World move to Russia! Get the f_ck out of the USA! I know the heat I am going to get for this comment, but considering the ignorant trash that will comment in the negative, I'll take it as a compliment, knowing your mentality!

    Chyle Mc Selective Service registration, non compliance with is a felony, his full academic records, his state senate service records. Not well informed are you?

  85. Chyle Mc

    @Nick Andrea….I'm very well "informed" I just don't understand ignorant comment…so playing devils advocate…Where are Mitt Romney's 10year tax returns…and all the other forms that you are asking Obama about? 2nd all that stuff is public record able to be viewed by everybody(GOOGLE)…He was the class president at Harvard…so in order to do that you academic records have to be legit…were not talking "Devry" were talking Harvard…So again is it these technical things that bother you or is it that he is a Black man running the country? Because I have yet to hear what anybody disagrees about his policy…

  86. Nick Andrea

    Chyle Mc What about Obama's Selective Service registration? Why won't you talk about that given that it's a felony. Nice playing the race card too but anyone who reads this will see that you didn't address the issue. Nice try though. Next.

  87. Nick Andrea

    Oh yeah, I guess his state senate service records aren't important either. How do you expose an Obama supporter's ignorance? Let them talk.

  88. James Shavor

    Chyle Mc – You actually can't see his school records online…or anywhere else for that matter. It appears that the only ignorance here is your own, as Barack "Barry Soweto" Obama's school records have been sealed since the beginning of 2008. Do some research before you post..or do you just assume that if Barack said it…then it must be true? Such is not the case…

  89. Chyle Mc

    Okay Nick Andrea…before you can become commander in cheif…they vet you…meaning they check all that stuff out before you can even be nominated…everybody including you & me have to fill that out…President Obama included. Now I didn't play the "race" card…I exposed it for what it is…why not ask Romney for his? Also lets just say you actually use "google" and search and find that stuff to be legit…then what…what's your argument? All that petty ridiculous acusations are nothing but racism in its fullest form..Now if you want to say "Obama hasn't done anything to directly help the poor or underserved communities…such as the black/latino unemployment or violence…then hey maybe you gotta point…but anything else is just ignorance.

    Andrew Cruz – Barack Obama reviewed the troop surge in Afghanistan…and approved it. Along with all the other campaign promises he did not keep, he reversed himself and supported the troop surge in Afghanistan ( do some research and find this out for yourself ). This President has not embraced the reversal of even one of his policies over four years…he has always sought to blame someone else.

  94. Nick Andrea

    It's not "racism in its fullest form" to ask the man to reveal his papers from the time he served the State of Illinois. As far as taxes, Romney disclosed what the law requires. If you don't like it, I suggest you change the law. He filed taxes, he paid taxes, we know that because the IRS prosecutes people who don't especially with Romney's kind of money. The who issue was contrived by Democrats to get people talking about that instead of the 4 trillion in new debt this President brought to this country and the worst record of sustained subpar unemployment since World War II. As far as records not revealed, here is list of ten by Breitbart which you CAN google:
    10. State senate papers. In the 2008 primary, Obama criticized Hillary Clinton for not releasing papers from her eight years as First Lady–but failed to produce any papers from his eight years in Springfield. “They could have been thrown out,” he said.

    9. Academic transcripts. His supposed academic brilliance was a major selling point, but Obama (by his own admission) was a mediocre student. His GPA at Occidental was a B-plus at best, and his entering class at Columbia was weak. Can he prove his merit?

    8. Book proposal. Obama’s literary agent claimed he was “born in Kenya”–for sixteen years. His original book proposal exists–biographer David Maraniss refers to it–and seems to have embellished other key details of his life. Yet it has never been released.

    7. Medical records. In 2000, and again (briefly) in 2008, GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain released thousands of pages of his medical records. Obama, who had abused drugs and continued smoking, merely provided a one-page doctor’s note.

    6. Small-dollar donors. In 2008, the McCain campaign released the names of donors who had contributed less than $200, though it was not required to do so. But the Obama campaign refused, amidst accusations it had accepted illegal foreign contributions.

    5. The Khalidi tape. In 2003, Obama attended a party for his good friend, the radical Palestinian academic Rashid Khalidi. The event featured incendiary anti-Israel rhetoric. The LA Times broke the story, but has refused to release the tape–and so has Obama.

    4. The real White House guest list. Touting its transparency, the Obama White House released its guest logs–but kept many visits secret, and moved meetings with lobbyists off-site. It also refused to confirm the identities of visitors like Bertha Lewis of ACORN.

    3. Countless FOIA requests. The Obama administration has been described as “the worst” ever in complying with Freedom of Information Act requests for documents. It has also punished whistleblowers like David Walpin, who exposed cronyism in Americorps.

    2. Health reform negotiations. Candidate Obama promised that health care reform negotiations would be televised on C-SPAN. Instead, there were back-room deals worth millions with lobbyists and legislators–the details of which are only beginning to emerge.

    1. Fast and Furious documents. After months of stonewalling Congress, Attorney General Eric Holder asked President Obama to use executive privilege to conceal thousands of documents related to the deadly scandal–and Obama did just that.

  95. Nick Andrea

    The point is the man demands full information from others but shrouds his past and present in secrecy. That sounds like hypocrisy to me. The American people deserve better.

    Brandon, your point is well made…but then who do YOU vote for? Eeveryone will agree that both parties are flawed, but, given the lesser of two evils, which one to YOU choose? Obama was given four years and a mandate for "hope" and "change"…yet he did neither. He promised plenty ( immigration reform, less than 8% unemployment, "shovel ready" jobs, bank and Wall St. reforms, etc ) but he only accomplished giving billions to GM and Chrysler, giving the GM company over to union control, and Cash for Clunkers, the biggest boondoggle in modern history. Romney has many flawed arguments, but his business approach appears to expand the US GNP, and reverse the one in seven Americans now on Federally funded welfare and food stamps ( it was one of three when Obama took office ). So, if you like neither of them, which do you chose?

    Well put Susanne – Many Americans believed in Obama and the culture of change he was supposed to bring in in 2008…but he did none of it…even when he had both houses of Congress under Democratic control. In fact, I would wager that no other President in the modern era has used less compromise than Barack Obama. He simply let Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi run the government for him. Now he states that we should believe him again…but why…when he never kept his word the first time around?

He also had a majority of both Houses of Congress in his first two years, yet he made no efforts to cross the aisle and make policies that were good for ALL Americans. He also refuses to take responsibility for anything he has promised and failed to deliver, as well as issues that his administration has had that he always blames on someone else. The first order of business in any job ( including your own ) is to take responsibility for your own position. That's what real leaders do…but President Barack Obama has not.

    Hmmm! Sounds like it's just you once again ignoring the realities that if Congressional members on the Republican side in the House have the numbers to prevent a measure from passing or the Democrats don't have enough votes in the Senate to prevent a filibuster then President Obama will not get anything passed, even legislation originally favored by Republicans, if subsequently introduced by the President. This is in keeping with the Republicans' publicly stated goal, to do everything in their power not to cooperate so as to prevent this President, Obama, from winning another term in the White House. Because of such juvenile conduct, unseen in my lifetime, I'm going to gas up my car to make sure I do my part to carry Obama supporters to the poll to guarantee his victory, if no more than for this ignorant conduct.

  107. James Shavor

    Kevin Ives – How did the Republicans restrict forward movement on jobs creation in the first two years of the Obama administration? The Denmocrats had a majority in both houses but chose to use that majority to force through union concessions and a health care initiative that the majority of American citizens did not favor..and that not even one congressman/woman or senator had even read through. Vote with the facts…not with your liberal bias.

    no matter what the president had a super majority in both the house and the senate, he could do anything we wanted to pass no matter what Republicans in congress wanted. o and on that note he while the thought of failing by our fearless leader while skipping out on benjamin netanyahu to go on letterman the president could not say what the natinoal debt was regarding the RNC debt clock running though the convention. that is his first job of the president, immigration his "biggest fail" it is just one of many that the media does not cover.

  111. Martha Turner

    No–it is a shared responsibility. It takes two to tango. Our sacred documents are the result of cooperation and compromise–Obama has not had the advantage of that w/this Congress. They are the ones we should fire.

    Now that Obama has listed immigration reform as his biggest failure, he has to stick to it. So when he speaks to the Women's rights groups, he has to say he failed at immigration. When he speaks to the NAACP, he has to say its immigration. When he speaks to any group, he can't court them in this area by giving them a response tailored to their needs. It has to be immigration reform. Let's see how he dances around that.

  118. Mike Santana

    you are completely, in 3 years he has earned the title of worst leader ever, so makes sense, and yes we were bombed but maybe instead of bush just leading with his pride, he could have gotten the intelligence that (granted a lot of people looked over) made rational choices and decisions and maybe attacked the right country, and saved some money, lives, and hatred to this country but hell that means nothing, i have never seen for disconnect from republicans and democrats so early in ones term, just admit it, you listen to fox news, fox news is old republicans and obama is black

    or an evil black alien who crashed landed in kenya about 3 centuries ago and took on our human form, you guys really make me change the way i think how everyone is entitled to opinions to just saying shut the hell up, although funny is funny, i love the names you have, nobamo, odumba, obuma, really witty,

He threatens their ability to rank in $. To wit: Corps are sitting on billions in profits, but refuse to hire in order to keep the economy growing at a snail's pace. The result is to get Obama out of office. Oil is fighting to keep its subsidies from Congress and to get that pipeline built so we may get more "foreign" oil. There is plenty of gas in this country, so why are the prices still so high? Because oil companies are selling it over seas at record prices, making our supplies tight. High gas prices means a weaker economy, which in turn insures that Obama is not re-elected.

    Hey Mike admit that you listen to the Lame Stream Media that is so far up Oduma's ass that they have given him a platform to continue his lies from and they back it up. Yes I do watch Fox News. I also spend about 2-3 hours everyday reading articles on the Web by both sides of the argument, fortunately for myself, I have my own rational brain to think with. It is very apparent that yours needs to be told what to think!! You would think on a rational level, that people would actually be interested in that their country is moving into a Socialist/Communist Society. Hey maybe that is what you want, not me. If you Libs want to know so much about a very honest a decent Man like Romney, how come you're so lax on not wanting to know more about the Idiot you treasure so much that is totally incompetent?? Try to answer this question Honestly if the Koolaid hasn't totally destroyed what brain cells you may have left to think with!!

    If you were a Human Resources Manager for a company!! Your job and your children's lives depended on your decision!!

    You had two resumes on your desk!!

    The first resume had info on it that the person was an admitted drug user and party-er while in College, provided no info on his grades or academic studies, attended numerous Communist radical events, and had no information on how he paid for his extensive studies! Then upon Graduation with a Law Degree, he went on to become, with little if any work experience, a community organizer, a State Senator, a US Senator, and along the way voluntarily had to give up his Law License in Ill. to prevent prosecution for fraud. Oh sorry I didn't have more info on your Boy's early life or College records, he has spent Millions of Dollars hiding the truth or just the facts! Oh I forgot he wrote a book about his life. And doing so, claimed for years, he was of Kenyan Birth. It was published in the books promotional materials by the Publishing House that distributed it!!

    The second candidate's resume clearly states that, after finishing High school, he went on a 2 year mission overseas for his Church. When he came home he married his Sweetheart, started a family, worked his way through school, achieving high grades! After leaving college he went onto Business school got an MBA and finished Law School. After that he went onto a very successful career in business, was a successful Gov. and Voluntarily took over the Management of the 2002 Winter Olympics, making it one of the most successful Olympic events in Years.

    Tell me who would you call back to hire!! I don't care about their color here!! They are both Black or both white, or both Latino, or what ever! Make an honest judgement!! The details I laid out are all very well known from both sides of the Political spectrum!!

    Like I said, be honest and unbiased. Make your decision!! Let the world see if you can!!

    The Democrats controlled Congress for the last two years of the Bush administration and the first two of Obama's administration. If we really wanted to pass immigration reform, we could have easily pushed it through. Don't blame Bush or the Republicans. We had the chance and the control, but we did not do it. Obama is great at making campaign promises, but like Gitmo, no tax increase, you can keep you medical insurance at no increased cost, etc, etc, he promised anything to get elected. I will not be fooled again.

    four years ago back in 08 I found out a black guy was running for president (Obama). At that moment I said "you know if he wins he'll go double term." don't fight it obama's going win this election, go watch the clinton speech that he made for him. That my fellow americans solidifies his seat point blank period. idk about you people but I would cry if we got another bush. I think that's our problem as a country we are stuck with a bunch of stupid f***'s who don't learn from their mistakes do you not all remeber how bad the economy got with the bush adminstration? this is a 10 times better economy. Obama did his job but things this big do not happen over night. look at the facts not the color of skin, read all the comments below and I can garuntee most people that are against obama are white and I'm not being racist I just believe in equality and that's the type of america I would like to live in. so when you vote against him know why you are doing it and understand each and every action no matter how little still makes a difference.

    Joel, Obama ran on the promise to cut the national debt in half. Instead he doubled down on it. Responsibly pulling troops out! As the teachers of our military die by friendly fire. Wake up, Obama has done America a disservice if not committed outright treason. I grew up in a time when America was respected and feared. Now the muslim brotherhood is in the white house. Joel your answer is very clear in who you blame…when in a job is responsibility to be taken? How many more Ambassadors need to be killed and American flags are to be burned before you decide that the job he has done so far is not good enough?. Or is another bowing down to the middle east in your ideal? We as a nation struggle not only with patriotism at a decline but a true issue with unemployment and underemployment. The auto industry 'bailout' was little more then a teamster pension balance forward GM is back at the table looking for more help and still owing American taxpayers over 36 billion. The only "Americans" Obama represents are the left wing and those that are not paying taxes…but taking them. Reagan 'inherited' a truly troubled economy, he did not waste time pointing fingers…

    Kevin V Sinclair amen kevin,obama supporters seem to forget all the promises he has broken,and why does he sympathize with the muslim countries,because he is one.one day his followers will wake up and realize he has fooled them into submission at his will.then who can they blame?

    Politicians are like diapers. Best when changed often. This one is poopy….time for a change. Not to say that the next one won't get poopy too, but at least we'll get a brief respite from the odor.

  142. Kevin V Sinclair

    Rob, I really think that the mindset continues among the youth. It is not as pervasive as in 08 as many of the college kids unable to find work or find it in their chosen fields are moving back home to find the trouble is also there as well. Obama is a muslim, there is a distinct disconnect in the liberal media that I believe that Americans are being left in the dark about this particular religion. In fact I believe the only reason we do not have suicide bombers here is because the folks in charge have looked in America's past and read that in WW2 we locked our enemies up in the deserts, and this happening to them would be detrimental to their funding terrorist activities the world over. I really hope I am wrong, and being paranoid. However my previous lifestyle tells me 'fortune favors the well prepared' and I and my family are living by this.

    It doesn't matter who runs the country because GOD is in control anyway. All we need to do is support the person in authority he allows to be elected into office. (TO MUCH DIVISION IN THIS COUNTRY).

    What is the Role of Government?

    In his first letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul wrote that "supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made…for kings and all who are in authority, [so] that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence." (I Timothy 2:1-2, NKJV).

    Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
    Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
    (Romans 13:1-2, NIV).

  144. Richard A Todd

    What Obama means by immigration reform is amnesty! We've tried that before and it didn't solve the problem. It made it worse! A good start with immigration would be inforcement of the laws on the books! Many people who consider themselve to be compassionate say that illegal immigrants are just trying to take care of their families. That does not justify breaking the law for me. The same argument can be made for bank robbers and burglers. I am all for helping people in need in other countries but if I gave $20 a month to every organization that had a commercial on tv with a starving kid without concidering my budget, my kids would starve! The USA is not responsible for the abuse of every other country against their own people. We need to take care of home 1st! One quick solutiong to our high unemployment would be not just keep job in America but keep people from coming over here and taking them away from Americans!

  145. Rick Cooley

    Sad thing is, he is more distraught for not letting illegal aliens get amnesty than any other problem America has on it's plate. That is so ridiculous! I would be happy that people WHO DOn't BELONG IN OUR COUNTRY are not getting a free pass by this wicked government. Its coming someday, and that's when the shit will hit the proverbial fan. Americans will not accept it, and riots, marches and occupying will happen. It will not be a pretty picture.

    Obama's biggest failure? Gee, got a couple hours to go through the LONG list? For starters, Obama has added BY FAR the most national debt vs. any other president (Obama has added more in 4 yrs than Bush did in 8, and Bush was the 2nd worst); under Obama, THE worst economic recovery since the Great Depression AND the worst-ever consecutive months (43 and counting) of unemployment at 8%+; record poverty, under Obama (both in terms of % and gross numbers); record food stamps, under Obama (with an amazing 50% increase during his 4 yrs); Obama's war on religious freedom, as 40 prominent Catholic institutions sued (and eventually won) against the Obama Admin; Obama being the most divisive president ever, playing bogus class warfare arguments; Obama being THE ONLY US PRESIDENT to not only never have a budget passed, but when the incompetent-in-chief tried to pass one, it was UNANIMOUSLY REJECTED BY EVERY SINGLE POLITICAL (DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN) IN BOTH HOUSES, etc, etc.

    To say Obama is EAAAAAAASILY the worst president in US history might be the biggest understatement of all-time.

    Obama's biggest failure was forcing Obama care during a time when the focus should have been on helping the economy and jobs. Even our friend Warren Buffet said this back in 09. This took away jobs, added to deficit, has kept many employers from hiring today. And Oh an by the way, will raise taxes on 200k plus earners in January 2013 (Dividends, interest, rents, royalties, etc.) Folks, this tax is already coming. And now he wants to raise to highest income bracket to 43+% on top of the 3.8% rise already in effect come Jan 1. Thanks to Bernanke's monetary policy, we have stabilized home prices and other assets. But this does not get us jobs, and in the long run does not help our economy. We need Fiscal Policy now. And this will require a Commander in chief who can actually negotiate and get things done. The Fiscal cliff is in now upon us (2013) and we now need to govern. Our economy cannot handle a 3.5% hit to our GDP this coming year, especially when we are only growing our GDP under 1.8%. Two quarters of that and we have what is called a recession. And by the way, the financial crisis of 2008, was a result of an over zealous investment that started over 20+ years ago with the advent of CDO's and CDS's. It evolved into sloppy lending, over aggressive home buyers, lack of implementation of regulation by the government, lack of due diligence by the rating agencies, etc, etc. Enough failure to go around. So who exactly was to be put in jail? These interviewers need to do some homework. By the way, I am an independent voter just looking at the facts.

    The anti Obama folks seem to have a lot of hate built up for some reason. Relax, he's done a good job with what he has to work with "The do nothing Republican Congress". That is the biggest problem. I think they're approval rating is around 11%.

  173. Mark McCallister

    what was the approval rating for the all dem congress and senate? about the same or worse, as I recall it was 9%, dems forget that the congress changed hands as a result of their actions, the congress passes bills which are then obstructed by the dem senate, so the do nothing senate controlled by dems are the real probelm. What is really meant is that republicans should do whatever the dems want and then they would not obstruct. They were voted in to change the direction of the country.

    ok well lets forget this made up job, because a drug use and partyer in college is most of the people that go/have gone, its just growing up (not right, but thats what it is) communist radical events, ok well you can't look down upon a person who looks at different views, now as president if our house and senate and other parts o' government and the constitution are strong enough none of your communist worries will ever hit law,

    now doing a mission overseas for a church means nothing to me or should it for most people, a church is not an end all be all of making the argument that a person of great value, married his sweethart again nothing that makes a person, now he went and got an mba very difficult absolutely no doubt, a successful carrer in business, ok well thats a hell of a lot easier when you are born rich given a head start, the education of both men are on par of me not caring, one "cheated" to go and one went because he could or was forced to because of family ties and money, also realize bush went to yale and harvard, i'm not saying he is an idiot but don't put so much on education, money=a lot easier way of getting into school and finishing

    why don't you just have a face to face interview in the fake job, ask the important questions not what is on paper, because good people can look bad and bad look good vise versa, now you want obama out ok, and you think he did a horrible job ok, can you tell me what romney and ryan are goin to do…period like i mean anything, any position they take what is their economic stance besides lowering taxes, education, foreign affairs, i really hope you can tell me, seriously because i can tell you, don't know…lets see during debates if you can with a straight face look and listen to romney and say you know what i feel comfortable, don't even listen to obama, just strictly on what mitt says can he implement great things and fix this country, just mitt and yourself during debates when he must tell people what is swirling in his head and if you can, i have nothing but love for you, not because that is such a radical thought but because you are going with someone you like and respect and honestly feel will help america not just someone to kick out obama you know…

    everyone with their opinions no need for anyone to get bent out of shape on the internet message board not directed to you just both sides equally on here, you know it sucks when people just get angry and spew things out for arguments sake hey i'll wait for a reply,

    Rob and Kevin you don't jump off a horse while in motion but thats exactly what your guys plan is. Its taking time to get the economy back to a pre-Bush era, when the economy was booming but nothing happens with just a blink of an eye. It takes some time, people need to be retrained to adjust to new jobs the market demands based on a changing economy, global market fluctuations etc that affect the aggregate economy etc.

    How about not closing GITMO. All he had to do is issue an excutive order. Republicans could not stop him. The only thing that stope him was THIS real life education he is getting while in office that has shown him that you can spew all the crap you want to get elected, but real life is harder. The funny part is that he's doing it again just to get elected and you morons are buying it again. He even said the other day you cant fix this from inside Washington. So why the hell is he running agian and why the hell would anyone vote fro a guy who admitted he cant fix it? Answer: the educated liberal elite folks on the left are not that bright after all.

    I'm sorry I voted for Obama and had high hopes, none of them were meet. What I don't get is that now he wants to take away the biggest job source this country has, the oil boom in North Dakota. He also has been stonewalling the keystone pipeline and according to Obama it is in favor of "green jobs". Tell me how taking away over 30,000 jobs here in North Dakota, not to menschen the 150,000 military jobs no one talks about makes any sense.

    The only way this country will get back on track is to tremendously cut Government spending, people will hate their lack of the benefits provided for them along with the still remaining high taxes, thus any president, or any politician that tries this will be ousted for someone who will allow the country to ultimately continue to live beyond it's means. The political pendulum is on it's way down from the democratic side and is somewhere near the middle right now, if Obama is reelected, I promise you, the next election will be a land slide in favor of the republicans.

    Jacob, obvious and oblivious to you and many other sycophants like your self. The point of blame has little to do with the shattering of the American dream. Obama asked for the opportunity to fix America. In actuality I am an avid reader of many publications, I watch little TV outside of Boss and American Restoration both of witch I DVR. 3.9 years in, a monkey could have fixed the economy by now instead of worrying about who is paying for birth control for a 30 yr old law student or what rich celeb is going to help him reload his war chest best wake up man.

    Hey Mike, I agree with you the debates will tell something! If you want to know about Romney's views and what he and Ryan will do, go to their Campaign Website and read it! It is well laid out and fairly easy to understand! Oduma knows nothing about how to create a positive Business growth atmosphere in this country. The passing of Oduma Care has stifled business's plan's toward the future all by itself. I have been in Medical Sales for over 30 years, and what his policies in that regard, have done to Doctors is unreal. Would you rather feel that your Doctor has your interests in mind, or what the Government will allow them to do for you? The best way to unleash a large part of our Economy is to immediately repeal Oduma Care. Put into place a system that is not run by the Government. Can you actually tell me what the Government has run effectively? Part of the Romney plan is allow Insurance companies to compete for business across State lines! That alone will greatly bring down Insurance plan costs and also bring down Medical care costs. Also to be put in place will be Tort reform. Do you know that Liability Insurance is the highest cost for a Dr. Most Dr.'s are paying in excess of $150,000 per yar or more. iFree enterprise, works well in any business segment. Living where I do in WV, Oduma's Energy policies have knocked out over 40,000 mining jobs. He has most recently put forth EPA rules and regulations that will quickly close most Coal Fired Electric plants. Coal currently produces over 45% of the Nations Electricity! Where is that loss of energy production going to come from on an economically sound basis? Having grown up in NJ, as much as I love the State, I would never live there again. It is going Bankrupt, except it does have a chance with Gov. Christie in charge and cutting deficits, and trimming Government size and regulations over business! Go try and open your own business there. It will cost you so much in various Licenses you need to get, and then the other Gov. regulations you have to comply to, you'd be very lucky to survive your first year.
    So I will agree that we disagree. However, I think the debates will show a clear difference! Oduma will not be able to cover his total ineptness as Pres. His record is horrible and getting worse. I will bet you that the day Romney gets elected the Stock Market will jump 200 -300 points or more. If the other happens and Oduma gets another 4 years, it will drop that much!!

    One last thing, I happen to think that a person's early influences and beliefs shape their life. One was a radical thinking person with little influence from being here in the USA for many ears. The other grew up in a very strict Church environment, with great influence from just living his life in the USA. The reason the Constitution does not allow people of mixed Nationality birth to be eligible for the office of President is because of the distinct possibility of mixed allegiances to our Republic. Oduma's performance has proven that theory correct!! Like I said before look at your children before you vote and think what will their future be under each person. We have proof of one's ineptitude, we also have the other's record of success in Business and life!

    Inflation sky rockets. The FED is crooked no doubt, a private company deciding who/when/where new money goes to? Ultimately whoever is in office is going to work with them to support each-others agendas. The head of FED is appointed by the President, but just like the President doesn't have ultimate control of the country, the chairman of the FED doesn't have ultimate control of the FED. The FED, in my opinion, is the definition of Fascism. But that doesn't change the fact that money can not continue to be spent recklessly. When the FED prints more money the money the people have just becomes more and more worthless. The entire wealth of the country is basically a pie. When the FED puts more in, what's there is just compressed and becomes smaller than it was before. the FED doesn't directly determine how much we spend or how big the pie can become, but it has corrupted influence over it. Long story short the FED and president will always be in bed with each other, despite the party of the president, neither have ultimate control over the economy, but one way or another, it is Fascism and a form of corruption.

Remember it was the hypocrats that not only walked out, but actually left their state in order not to do their jobs and compromise was it Minnesota, anyway, somewhere up there! UNPRECEDENTED OBSTRUCTIONISM! Even NOW the left has called Romney a murderer because he was blamed for some poor man losing his job and his wife died later on. THEN you have creepy leftists wishing hurricanes would drown all the Republicans in Tampa. IF anyone DARES criticize obama or the lamestream media, they get shouted down and attacked as racists!

Based on your profile picture, you're definitely not hungry. What's so much worse? Don't say big government; the public sector has lost jobs under Obama. Don't say immigration because he's deported more illegals than Bush already. Is it the war? Because Bush started that and at least we're out of Iraq. Can't be the economy; compared to 2008-2009 we're doing great. The Dow Jones recently broke 13,500…that means it's doubled under Obama. Is it the debt? 12 trillion in stimulus spending that I assure you McCain would have signed off on too. Obamacare? Really? Sick people not beiong denied coverage is bad. The whole Obamacare format is Romneycare which was ripped off from Dole care in the 90s. Is it the fact that he's half-African? Hmmm…maybe that.

    Actual Facts: Obama and the Democrats controlled The Senate, The House and the White House for 2 years. The ONLY thing Obama wanted was his health care law. He and his democrats on the Hill could have done anything they wanted, yet, they did not. And in 2010 the Republicans won back the house. Which means, for those paying attention, no one, not even the democrats, wanted the bullshit Obama tried to get done, or they would have spent 2 years passing his plan.

    So, why did they not use their 2 years of FULL GOVERNMENT CONTROL to pass anything? And why now, do the gullibe believe the Republicans blocked his plans? The PUBLIC voted out his party so his plans would NOT be put into place.

    How does one NOT understand how the system works?

  223. Tom McWilliams

    What's ignorant is saying you can just go google all of obamas records. He NEVER ever released his Columbia records, the reasoning is because he applied as a foreign exchange student, one Barry Soetoro and never applied as a US citizen. OOOPS!

So then comes SCHMUCK Bush years later,who goes and leaves a trail of destruction,and you people dream up some artificial set of arguments that tries to go easy on the poor guy (cuz you quietly know he is a moron); HEY: bulletin…there IS NO statute of limitation on BLAME!!

    and here is one beautiful GEM of BS in recent history (scroll down for comment): "Three years later and it is still Bush's fault. I didn't buy a tag for my car and got a ticket. I told the judge it was Bush's fault and I still had to pay the ticket."

    Hey (idiot) republicans, give it a rest with inventing stupid excuses to go easy on poor Bush W (cuz you quietly know he is a moron)…he left a trail of destruction that we will be fixing for the next decade (yes, tough for the GOP to stomach that he IS a big part of the reason Obama got elected)..;but lets get something straight: there is no statute of limitation on BLAME! Bush is going down in history as the creator-in-chief of most of our problems, and nothing is going to change that…1 year or 50 years after the schmuck has left.

  250. Cathy Cook Christodoulou

    Mike Santana Ironic…take responsibility…The Blamer In Chief has not taken responsibility for much of anything. He blames everyone else. Our credit rating has dropped on his watch. He promised to cut the debt in half. He knew how bad the economy was, he campaigned on it. If he was white, the blacks and the liberals would hate his policies. They have doubled the black unemployment rate. It is time to give a proven job creator a chance to turn us away from the fiscal cliff. Obama needs to take a break and go back home for a while. He has no new ideas..just more of the same. That hasn't helped. Enough already.

    am not trying to belittle you its just that you seem to do it to your self… lets see we went from loosing 800,000 jobs a month to gaining 100,000 a month, that's a fact… Gitmo is still open.. well it was the rep that scares the US people i mean really we cant handle a few hundreds prisoners and yet we claim to be the strongest nation… and yea the food stamps went up did you expect the president would let those people starve after bush policy's took them out of a job.. i mean can you think before you speak.. or write

  253. Cathy Cook Christodoulou

    Kevin Ives The house has passed over a dozen jobs bills and a budget. The Senate won't take them up. Stop the partisanship. Our country is headed for a fiscal cliff. We can't take 4 more years of this president's policies. Have you seen the debt clock? It will take $16 trillion dollars for us to somehow find and pay back before we are flat broke! Think about that. Socialism only works on paper. Free market capitalism, not crony capitalism works. Time to clean things up and Romney/Ryan have the best record of cleaning up financial messes. Time to retire the socialists.

    Okay whatever he feels is his biggest failure, the fact is simple— this statement is purely a political move that has no meaning. Under Obama's presidency there have been more deportations than any other. Last year saw the highest deportations in the agency's history! So whether he wants reform or not, he's not just doing nothing about it he's allowing the highest amounts EVER. What does that mean?

    As I recall, Bush left a big pile of garbage for the next president to clean up as best they could. Even if McCain was in office, very little would have gotten done when it comes to whatever he wanted to do until he was finished with mess left from 2 bad terms of a figurehead president like Bush. Obama isn't Superman and he isn't Batman either, but he pushed through a lot and despite the country's doubts and bets against him to fail completely. He still managed a lot with all the stubborn folks that refused to acknowledge his progress and drive to make things happen.

    That being said, shame on any of you that will call Obama a liar when this country hasn't seen an honest politician in god knows how many decades. I knew not to expect everything he promised, but I still wished him luck on stuff he could put into play. A lot of you are saying Nobama 2012, well if Romney gets it it'll be Ditch Romney 2016 up next. He's human and all of you are human too (I hope), so wake up and stop looking for perfection in politics because it will never exist. Yeah he made a lot of bad calls but I haven't seen a president that made nothing but good calls during their term.

    To those who feel that President Obama has been "the worst president ever" – Please tell me how things have gotten worse under his presidency. Once you're done reciting you're cliche Fox News, Beck-esque rhetoric, explain to me how those things are not the fault of his predecessor or due to a complete lack cooperation from the right. I'd appreciate it if you were able keep the misspellings and poor grammar to a minimum.

A lot of you are saying Nobama 2012, well if Romney gets it it'll be Ditch Romney 2016 up next. He's human and all of you are human too (I hope), so wake up and stop looking for perfection in politics because it will never exist. Yeah he made a lot of bad calls but I haven't seen a president that made nothing but good calls during their term.

    Suggest you prosecute Mr. Fast and Furious AG himself before turning on WAll Street…at least their bubble gives false hope to America…kinka like the housing bubble did some time ago.

    Vicki Turner Brain You do know that with Obama as Commander in Chief, we have managed to capture and kill several terrorists and members of the Taliban? Our military isn't weak. Obama hasn't weakened the military. Why are people so quick to create illusions that frame Obama as bad? Also, the rating fell not because of Obama, but because house congressionals and senators couldn't come to an agreement on the budget. The rating drop was bound to happen given the housing crises. Sheez.

    BO said “The biggest failure of my first term in office is I didn’t pass immigration reform. “

    Here’s a list of the green companies that have gone belly-up since receiving Obama dollars. Heritage reported:

    For those who only hear about these failing companies one by one,the following is a list of all the clean energy companies supported by President Obama’s stimulus that are now failing or have filed for bankruptcy. The liberal media hopes you’ve forgotten about all of them except Solyndra, but we haven’t. Evergreen Solar
    SpectraWatt
    Solyndra (received $535 million)
    Beacon Power (received $43 million)
    AES’ subsidiary Eastern Energy
    Nevada Geothermal (received $98.5 million)
    SunPower (received $1.5 billion)
    First Solar (received $1.46 billion)
    Babcock & Brown (an Australian company which received $178 million)
    Ener1 (subsidiary EnerDel received $118.5 million)
    Amonix(received 5.9 million)
    The National Renewable Energy Lab
    Fisker Automotive
    Abound Solar (received $400 million)
    Chevy Volt (taxpayers basically own GM)
    Solar Trust of America A123 Systems (received $279 million)
    Willard & Kelsey Solar Group (received $6 million)
    Johnson Controls (received $299 million)
    Schneider Electric (received $86 million)
    That’s 19 (that we know of so far). We also know that loans went to foreign clean energy companies (Fisker sent money to their overseas plant to develop an electric car),and that 80% of these loans went to President Obama’s campaign donors.

  291. Mike Santana

    success in life? he was born with a silver spoon, not his fault who is parents were its a genetic lottery what class we are born into, he had a head start, as well as in his business career, you can't run a country like a business because what because the deciding factor after a while, the bottom line, and we all know that no matter who or what or where money does some messed up things, i just don't see mitt in touch enough with normal people to know what are the needs of the people, you can get the economy going thats great but are you really a president for the people or just a number cruncher…and the very strict church environment means nothing about a person ability to run a country, his morals or basically him as a whole, i hope people cross that off their lists of reasons to vote for any person,

    and in new jersey there is a lot of disdain for christie, i'm not very informed about his interests i'm being host, but in this state he is not a man that people care for
    but he is a republican so i guess thats why he can help this state (sarcasm)

    i believe regulations from a government that is competent is better than this small government no tax thing conservatives love, business are getting away with too much, now small business can be set a little bit differently but someone has to keep a watch over things, public option, i don't care how it is done, medical costs, insurance companies, and their partners in crime pharmacutical companies need to be ridiculously reformed, and changed maybe the biggest change of anything in a long time, with everyone with a pulse on meds, and prescriptions over $500 dollars a month, if the insurance even covers, (trust me, i've had to change from meds that work to meds that aren't as great for my symptoms, because they are not covered, or are simply too expensive)

    and maybe if we cut this ridiculous defense budget that grows monthly basically, that the conservatives want to increase by billions, which is already around 66% or more of our total budget…our total budget for the entire country…

    now most will say how dare we cut defense how will we protect ourselves, well getting out of countries, will help plus, even taking it down to 50% we could still protect our country better than basically any other country, defense now is basically attack and offensive budget no longer defense

    i'm done, now you guys can rip me because i what i think, go ahead i guess i'm ready for it…1,2,3 go

    tell farmers, contractors and others that head over to home depot that get the immigrants, to pay americans, i'm sure they'll be pissed because it means benefits in some cases, putting people on the books, taxes, instead of just $60-$80 bucks a day and lunch, a lot of blame, or just simply a lot of reasons things are being thrown into the ring from a ton of sides

    This is the most pathetic scenario imaginable. If we weren't given such lousy candidates to vote for for president we might be somewhere today. The United States is supposed to be the greatest country the world has ever seen so shouldn't we have leaders that match that status? Republican or Democrat, all the elections in recent memory have forced us to choose the lesser of two evils! We need a real g.d. leader!

  298. Mike Santana

    wow, that is an amazing comment, i am saying this in a horribly shocked and disgusted way, when people hate they really know how to hate…yeah romney called him out while attacks were happening, real great foreign affairs, and the consulate on their own sent a letter saying they had nothing to do with that video, which is true, it was made by someone who put it up on his own, it was not the thoughts of america as a whole, if that is apologizing, then you know what i would rather have that attempted then, basically what war wanting conservatives want, "yeah it was put up in america, say something and we will attack you" hey maybe its about time we tried to just calm a situation instead of heating it up, just my thoughts, but in my opinion, and it is just an opinion, your post is more funny than something too take seriously

  299. Mike Santana

    you sit there and think really hard, about our government and who has been in that chair, and what that title means, and the way that republicans said it was there main job to concentrate on not having obama reelected, 18 months into his presidency, before he could "really mess things up" come on i mean i'm white i don't care about who is up there, i'm saying they do the people that have power in house senate any type of government position, ask them why they don't like his race i don't know why they should be able to tell you

  300. Mike Santana

    looking through these comments, and I have to admit of replied to a lot when some have pissed me off, I have noticed one thing, people that hate obama, democrats, liberals anything they aren't, they make up these funny names for them…

    nobama
    libertarts
    obuma
    dumbacrats

    its pretty funny, witty though, pretty witty.

    Kevin i never said it was a sign of prosperity, just a by product of the bush policy's… and i don't blame bush… i blame the House of no… all they do is say no…and your ambiguity in your arguments only shows you cannot be trusted to tell the truth… " i mean Muslim in Chief" your taking an important debate and injecting fear, and hate-ism… its clear your insinuating that american's should fear Muslim… as for my job i take responsibility of what happens on my shift… if the building gets rob before my shift and the boss come's to see me about what happen you dam right ill point the finger on the guard before me… and no am not an Obama zombies.. their are many issues i don't support from the president… but Romney is just weak ass candidate… and an idiot look at the past two weeks the more we see of Romney the better Obama looks..

    Jerry T Fike- Bush, on his worst day, is a million times better than obama, on his best. After 9/11 Bush kept us safe. Look at us now. I think the last count was 5 attacks in the US and now a killed Ambassador, which the obama administration quickly lied about.

    'With what he has to work with"??? He has the UNTIED STATES OF AMERICA to work with. This isn't Kenya! He's done absolutely nothing, but put us so far in debt our great great great grandchildren will be trying to dig us out of it. And please don't throw Bin Laden is dead and GM is still around. All he did was continue what Bush started with Bin Laden, but did Bush get mentioned? I don't think so! lol. Cause obama doesn't give anyone else credit, only blame. And with GM, its was only a temporary fix. He had TWO YEARS with a democratic congress, and got NOTHING done. So, it's time for him to go before we are beyond repair.

    Mike Santana you are right! There are a lot of contractors and farmers who hire these people and break the law doing it. That is why we need to inforce the laws by prosecuting those who break them! We also need to stop giving benefits intended for citizens to noncitizens and hold them just as accountible to our laws as we hold our citizens. If we inforce our laws, contractors and farmers will hire citizens and we will not be enticing people to come here illegally. I don't see a down side to that.

  328. Richard A Todd

    Yeah, I have a real problem with people who think they never make a mistake or do anything wrong. With Obama it seems that everthing he doesn't do right is someone elses fault and everything he does wrong was actually someone elses fault. Really! How can you do a better job or improve your performance if you thing you make no mistake and do no wrong?

  329. Richard A Todd

    Charlie Latimer Obama had a Democtatic Congress for the first 2 years. What is his excuse for that time? The only thing he did accomplish was to force through a health care bill that over 60% of Americans didn't want! Many of these things that liberals claim Republicans are holding up are things that could have been done in those first two years if Democrates weren't so busy shoving something down our throats we didn't want!

  330. Richard A Todd

    Karen Fox actually I believe Obama and Carter are tied right now for worst president ever but don't worry Obama still has time to pull ahead!

  331. Richard A Todd

    I find it humorous when liberals don't have an intelligent argument on a topic they accuse people who don't hold their views "hateful" or they start up with the personal attacks of the person who did have a good argument!

  332. Mike Santana

    Im happy u find it humorous that reply was done after reading some comments and replies of some cocky loose mouthed people on hear…and I think most people on hear are hateful and usually not for right reasons also they are spoon fed hate by ill say it…fox news…now I think a lot of what's said by people on here or other political message boards are stupid or totally idiotic I will never denounce others soul of being human others just say u don't agree…well f u you are useless to me…and that's what I feel from people on hear

  333. Mike Santana

    I do agree as we'll about this subject but it has to be touchy…can't just raid every work place…or pull over every car it seems easy but it can't be any way you think of it any solution needs everyone on board and a very well thought out plan

  334. Richard A Todd

    Karen Fox I believe the terrorist who flew two planes into the World Trade Center killing over three thousand people may be to blame for starting the war. These terrorist were from several different middle eastern countries and congress voted Bush War Powers with a Democratic majority in the Senate. these are a few little facts you may have forgotten. It is a wonder we didn't have more economic problem than we did. That was why they attack the World Trade Center. To cause economic collapse. The only thing Obama has done is increase our economic problems.

  335. Mike Santana

    Why spew some more hate…I'm not for it but if YOU may…can u explain socialism for me and how it is bad or good for people? I'm not sure…I love democracy but I don't know what the other is

    Hmmm it's like a game show on this site…in your head u ring the buzzer…ding ding ding and say fact or what the hell are u talking about

    Manny D'Jesus Mejia if someone doesn't have the education you think is adequate, should they just shut up. Maybe we should only let people with a Harvard diploma vote? I guess you and I would be out?

  338. Manny D'Jesus Mejia

    I'm not saying that, but when a person talks out of their ass like Brent and went to one of the worst colleges in america, it's fairly easy to rule out him as an intelligent person to vote. Also, sorry to be that guy, but I attended a prestigious university in the same class as harvard, but that's beyond the point. I just don't like it when ignorant comments like his catch on like wildfire and spread to other ignorant americans that preach the same ridiculous republican flair.

  339. Kevin V Sinclair

    Manny, really proletariat followers of the sycophant in chief, must have been reincarnated from septic tanks…as you are still filled in fecal matter. Obama is the worst president America has had to endure. I truly hope the village in Kenya from which he once came has not replaced it's idiot as of Nov 2012 he will be looking for a new job…and all of you government sponging rats can follow him there.

  340. Kevin V Sinclair

    Alfred, so the democratic controlled senate….that has not passed a budget in 1243 days is also not in your sights, just republicans and conservatives…when do the excuses end? Every major city in this country is BURNING filled with the excrement that happens when the blame of people goes all around except for who must look at themselves in the mirror. Modern day Sodom and Gomorrah has reached the white house. Agreement for all abominations in the Lord's eyes. I ready my family and friends for the apocalypse…if Obama is anointed again.

  341. Corey Nufer

    Linda Shadrick So using your logic, it's been more than 20 years, so now Charles Manson isn't responsible for all the blood and gore, it's been more than fifty years, so Hitler no longer caused the death of millions of Jews? The economy was everyone's fault, everyone, and anyone that does not recognize the major role THEIR OWN PARTY (that means democrats, republicans, and all others) had in it's destruction. We are in Afghanistan to this day as a result of war being declared by George W. Bush. Obama did not send us to war, but he has ended one! Of course, people like you will never stop for one second to use COMMON SENSE and logically break things down. Why would you? Oh yeah, that reminds me, it's been a few month, go ahead and let the Colorado shooter out of prison, because it's Obama's fault now, bunch of whiny little children.

  342. Corey Nufer

    The regressive agenda, part one, to gain control of congress during the first term and do everything they possibly can to prevent anything from happening. Part two, run another white guy against him and get the loudest, most obnoxious citizens to scream about how this president "ruined our country", blaming everything that the regressives have done on the president without a single shred of truth to back up their statements. Part three, take the government back and make it bigger than progressives ever would by handing it over to the evangelicals. Effectively, within ten years there should be at least five new laws on the books that are based on biblical propaganda, an act of treason against the people of the United States of America.

    The only liars are those on the regressive side attempting to discredit our president, yet never producing any kind of evidence or truth to prove what they say. Just because these people can scream the loudest does not mean you should believe them, nor should you place any trust that these people even know what they are talking about. The propagandists at your local tea party headquarters have an "in your face attitude" and like to make things sound great, but they do not maintain an argument with substance or truth to support their attitude. These people only with to attack the liberty of American citizens through an evangelical takeover of our government.

    Richard A Todd It was Bush when asked what mistakes he had made that stated, "I can't think of any off hand." Think harder Bush, your selective memory is very convenient!

  345. Debbie Irvin

    I've found that I make the biggest mistake of all times simply by commenting on these threads. When soneone, like me, says something that is not liked, my 1st amendement right of free speech is erased! Everyoneone of you are for the 1st amendment for YOUSELVES ONLY! HYPOCRITS!

  346. Alfred Joseph

    Kevin, if you follow closely you would see that the senate did pass a budget law… its the house that's playing politics on that one… and also when your first day in office you claim that your number one goal is to make sure that the the president is a one term president without taking into account that the people who voted for you are suffering and needs answers…that's a problem i am against gay marriage for so many reason… but i am careful not discriminate against the person but the behavior… in truth am not even pro-democratic i do think that a person's ability to get wealth is their responsibility… if your a skill worker who cant find a job.. start a business.. if you just don't qualify for the jobs outer go learn a new skill..however riding off 47% of the american people is a dumb move, saying that the poor don't pay tax is straight lie… your complaining that they only pay 15% when you only really owed 9% is hypocritical… i do want this man as my president

  347. Brendan J. Riley

    Like i said an issue that everyone overlooks with obama. I probably read at least 4 or 5 articles where england was expressing how disgruntled they are with obamas leadership. Including him or his family not getting a invite to the royal wedding. You think that was just by coincidence? Another was when those tourists from england were killed down in Florida and Obama didnt express any concern or apologize for what happened to the english.

  348. Kevin V Sinclair

    Those in the 47% have no skin in the game, and in my own humble opinion should not be allowed to vote. I believe in social programs. I just believe the safety net is there to protect not to live on. People and who they sleep with is a personal choice and not something the government s/b in the business of giving 'special rights to like being handicapped or being a minority. Many brave men and women have fought and paid the ultimate price to secure and protect our freedoms, I have full belief this potus could care less about people who serve and more about the left wing agenda….

  349. Alfred Joseph

    no skin in the game… am in the that 47% am a full time student going for my 2nd degree, i also work full time in a job that don't pay me what i am worth… but its the best balance for my ultimate goal and you don't think i should vote… also all those veterans who fought and defended this country that are in the 47% should not vote… and lets talk about all those senior citizen who are in that 47% who work 40 to 50 years paying into that system you think they shouldn't vote… just who do you think falls under that 47%… just the fact that you would want to take away the only time were they have a voice is of concern to me… all citizen should be allowed to vote…frankly am more concern about the right wing agenda… oppressing peoples right to vote is never a good sigh…what this country need and is strong third party to offer better solutions.

  350. Kevin V Sinclair

    Alfred Joseph, I am sure that you realize the very wording of 'being paid what you are worth' is an affront to all those who strive to do better by themselves and their families. I am a man who has not made anything I could not pay for on my own and those that choose to leech off the system intended to help not create more debt for themselves and other Americans. Redistribution is little more then robbing peter to pay paul, part of the LEFT wing agenda is to allow felons and ex cons to vote. That does not fit with me, allowing those w/o proper I.D. does not work for me either. There will always be exceptions to the rules for the 47% I am just tired of seeing my hard earned tax dollars go to those who deserve it least.

  351. Kevin V Sinclair

    Manny, still lost in love w/Obama…sycophant. Your delusional with the ever so smug self imposed idea of grandeur is nauseating. Wake up get some humility…self righteous ass.

  352. Alfred Joseph

    i think your misunderstanding me when i said am not getting paid what am worth.. i met that i have other skill set that i can used to get a better job… but time would be a problem since i am focus in school…me going to school is for the betterment of myself… blaming a group for what some do is not the best way to judge… i never understood why ex-con cant vote… it doesn't make them any less of a citizen…

  353. Kevin V Sinclair

    Read crime and punishment. If you choose to break the law, along with that choice is to forever pay a price. How can you be considered a citizen if you have been convicted of a felony? Crime is supposed to be punished and it is supposed to be a deter people from being criminals. How can someone striving for the goal of a second degree be so obtuse?

  354. Manny D'Jesus Mejia

    LOL. funny how you tried to use big words, but you couldn't tell the difference between your and you're. Why don't you read a book? Mitt Romney is a chimpanzee, Obama is not a perfect president, but a solid president.

  356. Brent Smith

    The difference between Mr Mejia and us is that we have a life, we have jobs, we have raised kids, we have worked hard and experienced many of life's lessons. We also read, we investigate and we challenge. Mr Mejia is unable to make common sense judgements, or statements for that matte,r because all he has as his Paradigm is what he views and plays on his Ipod and collage social groups, none of which is based on reality. It's unfortunate that so many people cannot see Obama for the fake he is. Hell, he was just exposed as a fake by a Mexican news channel the other night because they did what our US media wil not- ask for accountability. They interviewed him and asked very basic questions about current events. Of course, he collapsed and fumbled because no one has yet to question his supreme self before. He is the classic Narcissist and borderline megalomaniac. He has failed miserably in every level of politics. Our nation is spiraling downward and yet is out telling more lies to a wide eyed empty headed audience. Mr Mejia if you had any credibility in my book your pathetic jab would have maybe meant something to me. But all you are is another empty headed idiot.

  358. Lucas Campbell

    What do you think Obama will do when Washington and Colorado pass their respective marijuana initiatives? Everyone talks about how Texas may recede from the union someday, but I would be looking at these two states to start a civil war before Texas. Obama has clearly shown himself as two faced in many facets of todays laws and policy changes. Don't get me wrong, I don't like Romney's biblical "end of times" propaganda either. I don't believe either man is right for office, but until we start actually working towards a better society for all, it will continue to be a race of "who has the most money and who will make the most money for the socialist elite".

  359. Alfred Joseph

    its not that i don't understand you its that i don't agree with your ideology…or more of the way the republicans represent them-self its like this bias view of the president…i know i will never change your political perspective, but i wish you would think of your views as it relates to all Americans… its not an us vs them mentality that's gonna get this country moving…

  361. Bryant Gallimore

    I honestly don't agree with the Republicans or Democrats, and if I could I would just vote for Ron Paul and call it a day! Either way it goes I think America is doomed, but I'm almost inclined to say that things would be SLIGHTLY better (at least for me) if Romney were in office vs. Obama.

  362. Richard A Todd

    Corey Nufer You need to use some common sense when you make your comparisons! Mass murderers and lone psychos are no comparison to creating a bad economy. That is like comparing a drunk driver to someone who parks illegally! Also what war did Obama stop? We still have troops in Iraq and they are still dying there! Just because you say it is over doesn’t make it over! Your argument doesn’t hold water!

  363. Matthew Todd

    what stupid idiot's….
    look at this country under the democrats…we are becoimg a second tier, a second class nation…..and stupid liberals still don't get it…..everything they stand for has failed…and yet still blaming bush….from 4years years ago…..stupid liberals run the country right into the ground….and have no solutions, no ideals….just blame it on someone else……

  364. Richard A Todd

    Manny D'Jesus Mejia I didn't attend a University in the class of Harvard and it looks like I didn't miss out on much! Typical liberal elitism! Bush went to Yale and Harvard so you must feel he is really intelligent!

  365. Kevin V Sinclair

    Manny, I usually drink when I facebook. If all you have to defend Obama is to take potshots at my vernacular….the emperor has already won! Do not look for safety or sanctuary here in America if your Obama zombies win. How does outspending the GDP fix anything? If you ran your household budget like Obama runs ours you would be in bankruptcy court. Oh but wait you could care less as the American TAXPAYER is on the hook for that too. Jackwagon!

  366. Manny D'Jesus Mejia

    Brent Smith LOL dude what is your deal? "The difference between Mr Mejia and us is that we have a life, we have jobs, we have raised kids, we have worked hard and experienced many of life's lessons.

Mr Mejia is unable to make common sense judgements, or statements for that matter, because all he has as his life Paradigm is what he views and plays on his Ipod or collage social groups, none of which is based on reality." Is that all republicans do in a debate? Try to attack the opposition? You're entitled to your opinion, but don't come here making assumptions. I'm currently in graduate school for a PhD in Computer Science and Physics, so I wouldn't be talking if I were you. Also, when you brought up Mexican news, are you kidding me? Didn't your candidate color himself orange to appear to look more hispanic when he went on a hispanic news show? LOL, it's kind of hard to believe that Mitt Romney WAS YOUR BEST CANDIDATE, and that your party is filled with morons like you. Have a great life buddy.

  367. Hassan Qureshi

    honesly bro in a perfect world ron paul would have been elected and america would be on the faster path to being fully repaired. ron paul believes in fundamentals not being politacally correct and in america we're stuck with a bunch of lazy ass's that sit and just watch tv so not only are we swayed by media but americans have a tendency to go with what ever has a a more entertaining feel to how the indivdual feels at that moment not based on facts. most americans are just stupid they dont think they're causing any harm. But i guess that right there is the problem is thats the only time they think lol

  368. Debbie Irvin

    You're of course talking about his 2 wars, on a credit card, his tax cuts for the wealthy, on a credit card, the failed housing market….Oh wait, sorry, wrong president. Forget those few facts I just threw out there!! LMAO

  369. Debbie Irvin

    Glen, just for the record, Obama never campaigned against Bush!! Get the basics right before you wonder in deeper than your thought process and capabilities!!! lol

  370. Debbie Irvin

    The only thing more dangerous that a republican is a republican armed with incorrect facts! I used the word facts very loosely, I should have clarified, facts as related through Faux Noose, Glen "I'm in this for the money" Beck, Rush "The druggie" Limbaugh, Catherine "Please someone give me a sandwich I'm starving here" Culter and the likes!

  371. Andrew Cruz

    oh shut your trap mitt lies just as much he doesnt care about you or your family unless you make $500,000 – $1,000, 000or more

  372. Ellin Pizarro

    Bush,obama or romney arent anygood if anything i wouldve voted for hilary clinton.we need a woman to run shit not morons

  373. Sharon Tatum

    TAX EVADER …WOW…. DID YOU GET THAT FROM THAT LIEING HARRY REID .STUMP DOUBLE FOR OBAMA…OBAMA WORTH 10 MILLION AFTER TAKING OFFICE IN 2010…WHERE DOES SOMEONE GET 10 MILLION IN A YEAR WHEN YOUR SALARY AS PRES IS 400,000.00 PER YEAR ..HE WAS NOT IN OFFICE FOR A YEAR IN 2010 ..WHERE DO YOU SAVE 10 MILLION IN 12 MONTHS…WOW I WANT THAT JOB ….OH AND IF OBAMA DOESNT STOMP ON OUR FREE SPEECH AND YOU DONT STOMP ON MINE THEN WE CAN BOTH SAY WHAT WE WANT AND NOT HAVE TO AGREE ….TEEEHEEEE

  374. Mark Hedtke

    Have you ever considered a closer investigation of the political parties themselves? Look at their history and why you align with either one. Is it based upon fact or something heard from others? So few of us are able to distinguish between the two. Words mean something and help describe to others how competent we will be perceived by them. So it is important to remember that while not everyone will always agree with you, if you do put your opinion out in the public, don't be surprised that someone also will exercise their free speech to your opinion as well.

  375. Debbie Irvin

    I'm not surprised that big mouthed Pukes exercise their freedom of speech, they have always done that to nauseum and most of what they say are total bullsh%t! I am a free thinking logical adult and my political thoughts are based one the most important issue of all, FAIRNESS FOR THE WORKING CLASS! Thank You very much, I will ALWAYS put those values before the values of facsism and plutocracy!!

  376. Debbie Irvin

    That's the first true statement I've ever heard uttered by a Puke! Pukes fall in line….BAH BAH!!!

  377. Debbie Irvin

    Name calling in Spanish is still name calling and bullying Ricky!

  378. Debbie Irvin

    Bin Laden, Lilly Ledbedder, DADT, Dodd/ Frank, War ended in Iraq, Healthcare reform…should I go on? Unlike repukes, I don't have short-term memory loss! You've been schooled Kev!!

  379. Jumping Jimmie

    No we are pointing out the facts Pres.Obama does not know what he is doing. Also yes Bush was Pres. but the congress was run by Democrats for 6 years so think on that for awhile…unless you need to call a liberal to be told what to think

  380. Jumping Jimmie

    David Dugas nothing he has said is true sir and nothing has been transparent. and yes there are many stories with him on tape lying, liberals are just that way and have lied to folks since the beginning of time.

  381. Mike Santana

    Who put us there? Now let the new guy fix everything why can't people just admit they are not sure if McCain would have done what u think is so easy to do?

  382. Jumping Jimmie

    Charlie Latimer who said you could not fix ANYTHING in four years ?????????????????, he has done nothing ,,,,sure did make it worse

  383. Jumping Jimmie

    Chyle Mc so tired of the race card it doesnt work any more, Obama's life in general has been kept secret and if you where really honest with yourself you would point out the lies he has told and I am not even speaking of the unkept promises. People of color have been lied to for years and have never better themselves with the Dems. They are kept in there PLACE so to speak right where they want you…. period. Please just be honest with yourself or are you afraid your friends will turn on you JUST like the liberals teach to do when someone disagrees with your point of view. May the Good Lord keep you well.

  384. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Kim AstronautChik Davis did you know that it takes a majority of the votes for a person to become president? Sure you know. Now if blacks are the minority and they were the only ones that voted for him to be president, do you think that he would have won? You talk about people being racist because they do not want Obama to serve another term but some of those people are some of the very ones that helped vote him in the first time. He wasn't voted in by a minority alone. He just has not done a good job. And please for crying out loud, go study the democratic and republicans part in issues that may be of interest to you. Democrats weren't always looking at things in your favor by no means. Nor your best interest.

  385. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    James Shavor you are sooo right! Now if you could find a way to say that in a way that Kim could understand. The ones that think Republicans are racists, I wish they understood and knew a little more about the 2 parties and their history. Like when our country was trying to fight for equality for all the republican party voted Yay 87% The democrats dragged their feet. It was publically know that we were waiting on the dems to pass it. When we finally got their vote for equality(a mere 23%) minorities thought that democrats were great because they passed the bill! While all the while republicans were just waiting for the democrats vote. Why can't people understand numbers. When it came to voting for equality folks it went like this…. Republicans 87% Democrats 23% and dragging their feet because they didn't want to do it! I can't make it more simple! Please research it.

  386. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Mike Santana if the whole problem with our president is his color I suppose you think that only blacks voted him in. The majority of this country voted him in or he would not have won since blacks are the minority. Does that make sense to you honey?

  387. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Karen Fox for the first 2 years of Obamas term Democrats controlled the house. He could have used that to his and the democratic partys advantage but did not. He didn't have to worry about the republicans. What's the excuse for that? Then the last year he blames his whole term on republicans? Whatever.

  388. Jumping Jimmie

    Jonice BabyStar Dyson Yes by far then a bunch of liberals that do not promote self worth but dependence, we as Americans should be proud of our selves not people who say they will do it for us.

  389. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    David Dugas another lie was and still is that Obama promised us he would bring the troops home when he sends more every day to Afghanistan. He brought our troops home? Tell that to the mothers and fathers of the dead men and women whose bodies are still being sent home in caskets. Do you think they feel like he has kept his promise?

  390. Jumping Jimmie

    Mike Santana you are so wrong sir, play the race card if you wish things are worse now look at the numbers. You have no clue what your rights are until this man that takes them away from you. Oh and who said it would take more than four years???? who???? he has done nothing and more info for you the first two years was all DEMS in congress and senate and still nothing not even the DEMS voted for his budget that would add 6.7 to the debt , get an education in math please

  391. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Mike Santana so you think it is all about Obama being black. Do you also think that only blacks voted Obama in? I'll bet you do. Do you acknowledge that blacks are a minority in this country and it takes a majority to vote in a president? Are you aware that minority means less or least and majority means most or more?

  392. Mike Santana

    obama is an out of control idiot, I'm not sure what he can do different to make me happy, but as long as its mitt romney, I'm not sure what he is going to do either because he changes his mind every day, but you know what because this black dude didn't fix close to a decades worth of shit in 3 and a half years he sucks,

    that is what you people sound like, and then some are so "educated" that they know that the whole crisis started with clinton, so that means we can't trust obama, which is totally logical lol, and bush had to start the war on false pretenses and make us laughing stocks of the WORLD, and in ridiculous peril, it is this will smith looking dude.

    if you don't think race is a little bit a part of this hatred of obama you are ignorant, it might not be the reason YOU hate him, but it is the reason boehner and all of the tea and republicans were not interested in making bipartisan results, which in turn makes his ideas ridiculous to you, when the first things out of the mouth of boehner to the republicans is do not allow this mans ideas through, no matter what they are, even if they are good, and we will not try to help him be bipartisan…like some I know this is my opinion, and my outlook which will be ripped apart by congressman that are on their computer, watching lizard lick towing, everyone is a politician, I don't understand how nobody feels like he wasn't given a fair chance, from the get go, he was a democrat and a little different from these white dudes, do the math, ok, I'm going to sit here watch my facebook light up with people tearing me apart telling me I'm an idiot, stupid, ignorant, whatever, you don't matter, your vote does, and when the election doesn't go your way, its going to be a travesty, you just don't matter bitch all you want, if romney gets elected I'm going to feel the same way either you do now or in the beginning when he was elected, we have survived other presidents, good and bad, one man can't control everything (a lot, but not everything) there are the house asses the senate asses, every politician really doesn't have your best interests in mind, understand that and take the sticks out of all your asses, peace.

  393. Prince Harrison

    Maybe somewhat of a failure but after all he has brought it a long way & still working on it, folks da problem is that those narrow minded people act like the man can become B-witch just twinkle his nose & there it is–the darnedest thing that came along in a long while*+@100% get a life all you haters that's all it is bar none know that for real ya.

  394. Prince Harrison

  395. Debbie Irvin

    What an assinine remark! Of course we all knew at the time, or should have known that the deterioration and debt and wars that the nation was left in by the time Obama took office could never be repaired in four years. We also all know that the full effect of Bush policies never even peaked until 2010, but in spite of that and a DO NOTHING OBSTRUCTIONSTS CONGRESS we are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. And yet repukes would have us go back to that dumb-ass trickle-down ideology and "job creators" bullshit. He has done PLENTY! Lilly Ledbedder, D.A.D.T., Osama is dead, healthcare reform, we are pumping more oil then any other time in history,there are 3 jobs bills sitting on Bonehead's desk that he won't even bring up for debate, the auto industry has been saved, we discovered to Issa's frustration that fast and furious was actually wide receiver under Bush/Cheney and the gun running was their bright idea, I could go on all night to no avail because "there are none so blind as those who will not see!" If you want 2 or 3 more wars then vote for Romney, but may I please encourage those of you who want those wars to volunteer to fight them or volunteer your kids and grand kids. Those of us that would rather explore another other than bloodshed should this time around have first dibs at opting out…send your own to die!!!

  396. Brenda Tenderbee Jackson

    True 2 every word. Everyone want a quick fix, but we should know that's the hole that's still leaking from the Bush administration.So if you want to be part the solution instead of the problem, vote OBAMA. 110%

  397. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Sure Charlie why not continue each year to increase our debt by trillions of dollars! Biggest debt in the history of our country under this one president and during HIS term not Bush's. He spends it like he thinks we have it to spend or like a child. The first 2 years of his term the house was ran by the democrats. Why didn't he do all the great things he said he'd do then? And he needs to stop slapping the faces of the parents who's dead childrens bodies keep being sent home from a war he claims he's ended. Every time he gets on tv and says " I said I would bring the troops home and I did", I wanna puke! Yes, he's still sending them to Afghanistan and bringing them home in coffins! Even if he did win another term he is always going to blame someone else for his failures. Even Mrs. Clinton has bigger balls and through herself under the bus for him about the not providing extra security to the embassy in Libya.

  398. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    David Dugas America has seen proof that Obama has lied about many things. For example did he not say"I said I'd bring the troops home and I did"? Tell that to the parents of the young men and women still being deployed and being brought home in coffins. That is a big televised lie!

  399. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Some people are going to hang in there with a person because of their loyalty to their party. Some people because of the color of their skin or their religion or lack of. They will not change their minds or later admit that they were wrong even if their choice for president painted the White House purple, ran nude across the lawn and scratched his croth on tv. Even if they lost their home, job, car and had no groceries to feed their kids. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me!

  400. Debbie Irvin

    Your numbers are off a little but whatever lies it takes to convince yourself that Mittens has the working man's best interest at heart you should repeat to yourself over and over and over until it becomes reality….oh wait, you're already practicing these tactics in deception!

  401. Debbie Irvin

    You're a dumb-ass! Presidents don't have to release those records to the public and if they did shouldn't you and I be asking to see Romney's. The only thing we've seen from his college years is him protesting for a war that he was too chicken-shit to fight in! Can you say CHICKEN HAWK!!!!!!

  402. Debbie Irvin

    Michael March fast and furious was wide receiver but you already know that! We all know that not due to a lack of trying, Issa led a witch-hunt concerning fast and furious and found the Bush/Cheney administration responsible! Music to my ears but your ears just keep playing The Eagles Lying Eyes.

  403. Debbie Irvin

    Nick Andrea could there be anymore lame-ass brain-dead baggers jump on the beat Chyle up with nonsense ban wagon? You sheep are going to Bahh Bahh your way to the voting booths and vote against your own interest. There's a sick part of me that would almost like to see it happen just so I could laugh at your retarded asses, but I care more about the nation and working man than getting a good laugh at all your ignorance. Go on, vote for the Plutocracy and Facsism and see how long you enjoy it. At the end of the Bush administration you couldn't find (at least I couldn't) one person to admit that they voted for the chicken hawk and now the short term memory loss has kicked back in!!!

  404. Mike Santana

    David Hansen i think having a rich family is a great head start, in the business world, except for trump who was left with 200 million dollars or so and went bankrupt kind of frequently

    David Hansen ok well wherever you get your info you have to trust that their info is unbiased as well, unless you have every vote that was made during him being a senator, everything he did as an adolescent, i'm sure you would be !@#$ if your childhood or young adulthood was the basis on your future projects, i do research as well, not really from the "lames tream" media, or fox gop news, or have a hard on for odumba
    its just i do have a mind of my own, and i do think and wonder if you non-liberals agreed with bush, on everything he did, did you mock and discount his ideas you didn't agree with or did you say, well he is our commander in chief he knows whats good for us?

    what is socialism? communism? and how would we end up that way with odumba? and how would house and senate let that happen, i will listen to you and not discount what you say, if you bring up good points i would have no problem admitting you are right or saying, damn i had no idea about that

  406. Mike Santana

    if he did what the gop wanted to do, romney as well, it would have ended up pretty crappy, in an interview with the wall street journal romney said, he believed that the auto industry (broke and in shambles) should go through with loans through private banks (broke and in shambles) and have the government guarantee the loans, so the banks would give money they don't have to an industry who couldn't afford to pay it back, then the government would step in because the guaranteed the loans, which would pretty much help the banks and screw the auto industry just in a prolonged matter, in my opinion, which thats all it is an opinion because i don't read the future or am an economist, really thinks thats just step in the right direction to help the gop's buddys on wall street, of course i could be wrong which of course i will have 15 people on here telling me how i am

  407. Mike Santana

    we were there before him buddy, but blame the guy that is there now because who would want to think about and use memory, way too much effort

  408. Mike Santana

    football analogy, if i traded away every great player kicked out coaches and changed the game plans, then got a new head coach told him, use the players you have institute your own rules, and if you don't win the superbowl this year you are the worst coach ever, and don't blame me for changing the team, i wanted to and now i have you to blame it on, do it now, our fans, (american citizens) need a super bowl ring, or you suck

  409. Mike Santana

    well then he would have gone with his full "obamacare" plan he wanted with more coverage and public option, but he didn't use the super majority he tried to get boehner and republicans to work on a bipartisan plan, which is a bad mistake, then he decided screw this let me get what i can because these pricks won't help which is making me feel bad…

    ok here we go just taking a guess

    Michael santana you obviously know nothing about this tyrants, plans, obama care is the most liberal unconstitutional thing ever instituted in the history of forever, thats why no one helped

    thats bull, try and help people who need it is such a liberal thing to do, if your not rich, you should get sick and die, right republicans?

  410. Scott Naidus

    wow,now reply was insightful…LOL…;Mitt got up in the first debate…and basically LIED through his sickening teeth about healthcare,but dont believe me,GO LOOK it up about his plan about pre-existing conditions,also look at his changing statements about taxes and the 47% comment that was NEVER EVER meant to be seen by the public,because it wreaks of the MOST sincere GOP attitude revealed…and if it was a mistake,as Twitt says,then do you honestly want a guy in the WH who can make THAT BIG a mistake when talking basics,and then be expected to work with Congress and world leaders;that is ONE HUGE claim of a mistake….we dont need any more HUGE mistakes in govt;would be nice if he "confessed" to so many of his other mistakes;republicans have a disease,and its called idiocy,and you have simply learned nothing from what happens when a republican prez is in the WH…the country goes to CRAP;compare america on the DAY Bush Jr exited…….to today. a maaaasssive improvement…and that is a FACT.

  411. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Karen Fox we're not so much complaining about Obama because he can't fix things in 2 or 3 years. We're complaining because he has back paddled our country so deep into debt that we are going to be owned by China! During HIS term he has made history as putting our country deeper in debt and faster than all of the other presidents combined! He can't blame that on Bush or anybody else.

  412. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    We should have voted Hilary in. She just stepped up to plate and threw herself under the bus for Obama on the crap of not sending more security to Libya when they asked our president. Looks like she's got bigger balls than our president.

  413. Chyle Mc

    I can't argue with ignorance. This whole he's a foreigner, not born in this country is a old played out fear mongering excuse to cover-up a racist attitude toward our President. Silence…

  414. Chyle Mc

    Jim Mie The race card is exactly what it is…if you can't name a specific policy that you disagree with…and why you disagree with it. If it smells like a duck…I'm gonna call it one. Sorry get use to it.

  415. Chyle Mc

    Nick Andrea I just can't even try to convince you…anymore..no matter how much evidence he gives it will never be enough…you will always find an excuse to doubt it because the fact is you don't like the President because of the color of his skin..not his policies. Fear at it's worst.

  416. Chyle Mc

    Sue Townsend Walters I sure Obama wants to bring down America even tho his own kids and family reside hear…yeah…next argument…It's like damaging your own vehicle knowing you still have to drive it to work everyday.

  417. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Chyle Mc you seem to think that people want Obama out of office just because he's black. Blacks are the minority in this country. Do you agree? Do you think the minority of people in the USA got Obama voted in? It takes the majority right? So there had to be a whole lot of whites and other races voting him in too. We knew he was black when we voted him in the last time. Blacks could not have done it on their own being the minority! He just has not done a good job. And yes we know there was a lot already going on in the White House when he got there but that was not reason to sell our butts to China by borrowing record breaking amounts of money like no other president before him.

  418. Kim LaCapria

    Dennis Flamm And you are an expert in verifying birth certificates? The idea that a man could fake something as simple as a birth certificate and get all the way to the White House is a laughable idea. It's like when my kids try to fake their way out of bedtime. Nice try, but the man is the most vetted on Earth.

  419. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Chyle Mc tell me this. Since you seem pretty sure that people just don't want him in office because he's black, how do you think he got there? Blacks are the minority in this country right? Can a minority vote a president in? No. It takes the majority. I guess a lot of white folks must have voted for him too, right? Maybe he just didn't do as well as we expected.

  420. Chyle Mc

    Debbie the US & the world has become more intergrated through technology and (even music) because of that racism is slowing dying because we are all connected as a people and actually know each other alot more. So your right it took ALL people of every color or race to vote him in..however as my grandfather once said when something is dying it is usually the most dangerous and vocal. Which means the more racism is dying the more you have people who "are" racist coming out the woodworks really voicing their concern that they might be losing there "old" ways of thinking. Again I say…it's fine to not like his policies (in fact black unemployment is still 13% which is the highest) so if you made that argument okay….But when you say stuff like "fake birth certificates", "he's a Muslim", or "Go back to Kenya"…things like that reek of racist undertones. So disagree with a policy fine…but at least have a valid argument on why.

  421. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Chyle Mc True there are some racist undertones but on both sides. Depends on what forum you're on at the time. That's what people do when there is an election going on and they don't know what else to say about the other candidate. Or they'll say snide remarks about a persons success and such. It's almost to be expected to a certain extent. Yes, it's wrong but after the election things will calm down again. An election is sadly a dog eat dog event. Everybody is scared by the state our country is in right now. That accounts for a lot that is said and the way people will vote.

  422. Kim LaCapria

    Debbie, I am sorry but that is simply false and what is known as false equivalency. There is not racism "on both sides," and saying that is a way of dismissing the fact that the GOP has been subtly slandering the President on race forever. Calling him "the food stamp president," saying he "gutted welfare reform," saying "no one ever asked ME for a birth certificate," and any number of similar things is not only wrong, but insulting to President Obama and all the other people in this country who had hoped we were beyond race-related attacks politically. It's EMBARRASSING.

  423. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Kim LaCapria the majority of the money we have been borrowing has not been for war. And he didn't stop war on a dime. However he didn't do it in nearly the time frame he gave us. It was about 3 years later.

  424. Kim LaCapria

    I just cannot imagine the gall of Republicans who spent money like drunken sailors on wars and corporate welfare and then they woke up with a hangover like HEY THE BLACK GUY TOOK OUR WALLETS. They built it. Take some responsibility, GOP.

  425. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Kim LaCapria If Bush is responsible for every thing done in Obama's term, that doesn't leave much for Obama does it? So how will he go down in the history books? It sounds like Bush was still in office the whole last term. Sure, you can blame some things on him, but honestly, the whole Obama term?

  426. Debbie Faircloth Carter

    Do you realize that during Obama's 4 yr. term he has borrowed more money and continues to do so than any president in history? Did you know that our economy is in worse shape since the great depression? Did you know that under Obama care a lot of doctors are not taking medicare patients any more because it doesn't pay what it use to? Did you know that the unemployment rate is not better.? They just started counting the people that have given up looking and the ones who's benefits ran out as now employed. Did you know that the big corporation Lockheed was going to announce a massive layoff but was told by the White House not to announce it until after the election? A massive layoff or a close down are suppose to give their employees 60 days notice.

  427. Debbie Irvin

    Wow Harris was just takeb to school by a High School student! Thanks Connie, we need more energized and informed youth to call them out on their lies!

  428. Debbie Irvin

    He was asked what HE thought was his biggest failure not what millions of uninformed rightwing nuts think was his biggest failure. You all weren't asked for an interview because the media already knows that very few Americans are informed and those that are informed generally interpret facts to meet their best interest. Like it or not, your ancestry is that of IMIGRATION…YOU ARE ALL IMIGRATS BY ABSENTIA!!

  429. Debbie Irvin

    His biggest mistake was running for president after the Bush/Cheney years of war, deregulation causing the banking catastrophy, closed door bribes with big energy, unemployment by 800,000 per month, tax cuts for all under the guise of pittance for middle and low income earners while giving thousands to the wealthiest with borrowed money, waterboarding, patriot act, and on and on and on and on. What a brave man to take on that task! I forgot to mention one of my largest pet-peevs, the privatization of our military giving no-bid contracts to subcidiary companies of Haliburton…..CRONIEISM!!!!

  430. Jacob England

    you are very right he did not pass the full obamacare plan, but it was not because of the republicans in the house, it was because in the middle of the whole obamacare passing, ted Kennedy died, and knowing that democrats could not pass it again with changes going back though the house and the senate, so they passed the bill without only one pass though congress. the republicans could not do anything even if they wanted to.

  431. Scott Naidus

    Dan…here is the explanation you may have missed,and im sure you're not very interested,but i will say a few words;like a lot of badly,sadly misled republicans,what you have chosen to ignore is the bigger picture; the healthcare bill was a project began early in obama's election plan- basically obama telegraphed his plan to the country and gave fair warning that he was preparing to go to war with the GOP and their fat cat pals who run insurance co's, and that it was the centerpiece of his 1st term,to shake the foundation of the ICY,strangling grip that the healthcare industry and its mega tight fisted army of lobbyists,had on it. So listen up, In doing so,obama embarked on the EXTREMELY treacherous road to initiate changes to the healthcare system,bearing KEENLY in mind,that the healthcare lobby was going to respond with a full scale assault on ANY MOVE that he made(much like gun control where NRA seeks to STOMP on even ONE MICROMETER of change);the health Lobby knew that the ONLY bet,its best bet,was to CRUSH the obama agenda,by manufacturing and constructing a propaganda nuclear war of sorts- one example being recruiting (when she was so popular) sarah palins outrageous BS about death units for older people- a HUGE revealing moment about the GOP agenda to bring obama's plan to a screeching halt. You would need to be living in a DEEP DARK cave for the past 10 years to think that republicans in Congress,and in the healthcare lobby's pockets,would allow that ONE MICROMETER of change to be achieved. This is why the Dems did what they did,cuz there is AAAAAAbsolutely NO REASON to expect the GOP to go along with ANY ANY ANY ANY ANY ANY democratic attempt to take control AWAY from insurance companies………UNLESS it is done in the most skillful way possibly,fast and furious,not permitting the SH*Tbag republican bs machine,to once again,kill all healthcare reform. But like obama full well knew,the average dumbass republican voter,doesnt know a f'n thing about THAT perspective,cuz they constantly get fed garbage instead of the facts.

  432. Kim LaCapria

    Scott Naidus True, there is no reasonable, fact-based explanation for why America pays such a high amount for care that has us at 37th in the world. It is a problem with a plainly obvious, no way around it solution. Let the insurance companies find new ways to make money. Sell supplemental insurance, sell something else- single payer and a public option is the only way forward, and they should have let Obama push through with Medicare for all.

  433. Bryant Gallimore

    Are you upset that your welfare check didn't come in yet? When you do get it, you can thank me and the other taxpayers in this country…damn ghetto welfare queen…why don't you go find some BIRTH CONTROL, so that you can stop having vhild after child after child, expecting us HARDWORKING TAXPAYERS to care for your litter while you sit on your lazy ass and collect OUR money and watch Jerry Springer all day!

  434. Heidi Mason

    Smh… this is exactly why it is not petty or shallow to choose your friends based off their political views. Your political views are not only racist and bias, but they're also full of stereo types and misconceptions. Based off of your "political" views I would have saved myself a lot of time, sanity, and energy to not be involved with someone like you.
    Have a blessed day living in a country that was founded by immigrants
