I didn't put any faith in him. I have no faith in him. That said, it's not like I had much for Romney either. It's like that South Park election episode where the school mascot election was down to a douche or a turd sandwich.......either way, the winner is just not good.....

Seriously? We have lost net jobs under this administration, and the net gain/loss is all that matters. He may have created x amount of jobs, but when you lose y amount of jobs, and y > x, it sucks. And don't get me started on "Obamacare". In my family I've already seen the effects of Obamacare, and the results aren't good.

I just have to disagree with your entire statement man. That is your opinion, and you are more than welcom to it, but I do disagree.

The best thing that could possibly happen with this country imo is for the states to take back a majority of the powers of the federal gov't. The federal gov't was never intended to be the supreme power in this country, yet has figured out how to become just that.

I say this b/c what is good and right for someone in, say, California, may not be the same thing for someone in, say, Mississippi, Ohio, or any other state.

I don't have all the answers to how to do this, nor do I have a political science degree, but the states were meant to have more power than the federal gov't. Our founding fathers feared an all powerful federal gov't, and at this point, that is pretty much what we have.

wrong, "Obamacare" has already proven to save lives for people that couldnt previously get insurance. He repealed DADT. He got us out of Iraq like he promised. The american auto industry is strong again when at the time he took oath, they were on the brink of collapse. Obviously he has done SOME good things. Many not as many as we had hoped, we can argue about why that is all day long, but you cant take away the things I mentioned above.

and praytell what are these effects? I really do wonder. I have seen the effects too. I have seen my wife get the ability to be covered under my insurance from having previously been on her mom's insurance BECAUSE the insurance company could not deny her coverage anymore, thanks to Obamacare. Im really curious to see how Obamacare has screwed you over, since its been a boon for us.

How do you justify him being the worst president? Other than the NDAA, you have nothing. And the NDAA is really just an extension of the Patriot Act, which we can think the previous incumbent for.

looking "to" God is part of the reason we are where we are. We looked "to" God to elect dubya, on his stance for things like pro life. And how many laws did he propose, mcuh less pass, during his 2 terms for this? 0. How many did the GOP try to pass during his 2 terms? 0. How many since Obama's one term? Over 30. Why? GOP only cares about this issue to get in power, to get them elected. Once they are elected, they dont give a rip. The sooner you christians can realize this and back a candidate on the real issues rather than who says they're the most god fearing, the better off this country can be.

"Religious institutions are having to violate their conscience in offering something they morally object to." - Oh, but its fine that they can contribute to political candidates? That turns them into PACs, which means its time to tax them.

Perhaps. In matters such as economic, I agree with you, states should have the rights over the federal government. But when it comes to basic human rights like healthcare, and civil rights such as the right to get married ot same sex couples, states should have NO say on this, as doing so is a violation of the very first line of the declaration of independence, the document that birthed our nation.

As far as marijuana, I think that should be a state level thing, since its an economic issue.

My mother, father, and stepfather are both paying more for doctor's visits since Obamacare came into the picture. Treatment has gone up for them, and they have worked hard and served in the military.

I'm glad to hear it has helped some people, but as with most things, this is a double-edged sword. There are two sides to it, and one side can help some, while the other side hurts others.

As for the auto industry, I'll have to check some figures, but Ford seems to be doing well, and THEY DID NOT TAKE A DIME OF GOV'T MONEY! As for GM, they are still partially owned by the Feds. Last time I checked, gov't owned business aren't supposed to exist under our form of gov't.

Businesses must be allowed to stand or fall on their own practices. When a company becomes "Too big to fail", we have a serious problem. That said, the "too big to fail" problems when the housing bubble crashed were largely due to Congress and some seriously bad ideas that permeated both democrat and republican.

I'm done with this. Too much politics in the last 24 hours. I need a bottle of (insert alcohol here) and some comedies to take my mind off of this mess for a night.

If you went to school and got an education instead of acted stupid and dropped out, you probably would have more articulate posts on here.

I actually agree totally with that statement. As for healthcare, I do think some form of healthcare should be affordable to all, but one I just don't think this is it. If it has helped you, awesome, but at the same time, I already see it raising a larger burden on my parents for their needs in healthcare.

Yea, I am serious. I go on the facts as I see them, not the slants, spin or talking points. But I'm sure you believe what you've heard are facts as well. We may not agree on what's true or right for this country, but I respect your approach. You didn't call anyone stupid or insult anyone, so +1 to you for that alone. Even though we disagree, LOL.

Insulting people accomplishes nothing but engendering hate and discouraging meaningful discussion. Meaningful discussion and respect for other people's opinions are two things that many people these days are greatly lacking.

I honestly use my dad for reliable sources on a lot of things, since he is retired and most of what he does is study politics as well as sports for our alma mater. My dad is probably identifies with the Libertarian party more than anything, as do I. He's also probably the most honest person I know.

Truly Obama isn't the problem and if you think he is then you're a ignorant fool.. It's the political game period.. Whether it's Romney, Obama, Joe blow whoever.. Regardless of the person in office the issues we're dealing with are gonna take more than 8yrs to fix. If each president believes that the last one before them wasn't doing a good job and changes the policies to what they feel is adequate and sufficient for the people it is only gonna do more harm than help. Think about this each president has their own agenda and some don't have the everyday person best interest at heart. The goverment is nothing more than a tool used to manipulate and dictate rules and regulations that they don't feel apply to them.. Stop blaming one person when it should be the system you question..

See, that's what I mean. The misinformation that people are putting just because they don't like the president is simply astounding. Do you realize that it doesn't go into effect until 2014? How could they possibly be paying more for a law that will not go into effect for another year and some months? Their prices are rising because the insurance companies are plain old greedy.

And GM paid back the loan. The Feds are not in the business of making cars. I agree that the housing bubble is a 50/50 split because all the warning signs were ignored by people on both sides. But everything else is totally off.

Who cares about BB10, Obama won and now we're in for a struggle. Im not really sure why the media sugarcoats our economy as doing better but in all reality its not. We're seeing companies such as Best Buy, RadioShack, HH Gregg, and Kmart/Sears far worse off now than 4 years ago. Even Amazon and WalMart had legit declines in their electronics department.

Unfortunately that's not all friends..

Now that Obama outspent Bush in half the time, we WILL see higher taxes. Even for us low income folk that are struggling more than ever. Obama's plan is yo raise taxes upto $3,500 even on the poor. But wait there's more! If your married like me and you don't have a lot of money (like me), you probably won't qualify for any kind of free healthcare once Obamacare takes affect. I won't

The testament of how good or bad a president truly is will only be determined a minimum of 20 years after his term. In the age we live in we expect everything instantaneously but that's not how it works in the real world. Short term fixes do not work. We need long term solutions which I believe Obama is working towards.

I'm not a democrat or republican just annoyed that people who voted for Bush a second term are crying about Obama. HIstory will show Obama to be a good president in his first term and hopefully more so in his second term.

What happened to flag waving nutcases saying Bush is our president, show some respect and if you don't like it you can get out? Well I grant those people the same courtesy.
