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.

Xperia-Knight, I think you need to add "inherited from Bush and a Democratic-controlled legislature" and I will agree with your statement. Don't forget, from the beginning of 2007 on, it was the Democrats who were creating laws.

Also, I understand that it's hard to deal with things that happened under a previous president, but it doesn't excuse yourself from having to do something about it. The truth of the matter is, the Democrats had control over both houses of Congress and the presidency for 2 years, but if you just look at what all they passed in those 2 years it was really nothing. In fact, the only ones you really hear about are the Healthcare Law and Dodd-Frank. Saturday Night Live, which as you know is normally more liberal minded considering what city they are in, even joked about what very little the Democrats passed in those 2 years. The deficit is still rising. We are still involved in foreign conflicts (Obama even involved our forces, though not ground forces, in Libya). Religious institutions are having to violate their conscience in offering something they morally object to. The NDAA was passed with a new law that allows the president to arrest any U.S. citizen he believes is involved with terrorism (with terrorism being very loosely defined). I mean these are serious issues that a lot of people don't really think about.

So, while I don't blame any one man for events that are outside of his control, I do hold the man to the fire that he created himself.

and right fully so Phil........but if you read my post again i did, infact say, he did somethings on his own, as did AND do, every other president AND every other man or women do things (mess up) on there own .....As good fella said, romney would have done the same......maybe not done what obama did in particular but any other president in his shoes would have done something that america would be enraged about........So the question is, if "man" is not the answer to americas delimma then what or WHO is?

I think GoodFella was trying to point out that Gary Johnson wouldn't have. I'm not going to make any assumptions though, so I'll let him clarify that.

If you honestly believe that Obama adds more to the pile as well as Romney, then why would you have voted for Obama? Why not put your vote towards someone else? I think that's the point we are trying to get at.

true but the point im making is that any other person will surely not "fix" america, as america seems to think.....the hole we are in is too deep for just one man to climb us out of........It will take america as a whole to put forth "effort" and the rest we must leave up to God.....Yes its true that america may get worse over these next four years but that's because america refuses to humble themselves and let God do what a man is unable to do........not because Obama or Romney isnt "fixing" us......Obama is there for americas sake not just for one area of america like, JUST THE UPPER CLASS, or "just" the middle class.......Hes there For AMERICA but once again he is NOT GOD.....so we must humble our selves and acknowledge God or we will continue to spiral downward

"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.

Thanks for your expert Karl Rovian analysis with mature name-calling. But I think your opinion is best on issues relating to tech. I don't think the "everyone is an idiot except me" argument holds water anymore. Your path to T-Mobile began under the previous administration, not the current one.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It would be interesting to see where smartphones go, but unfortunately apple isn't done sueing everyone about everything.

Yeah, there was something about Romney that just made me uneasy and, I am Republican!

On the smartphone front: I predict Obama will adopt the Galaxy Note II because he has [really] big hands.

If he get rid of that dumb ass Obama care and make people on welfare take drug test I wouldn't have a problem with him!

People on welfare shouldn't take drug tests, they should be taken off welfare (as long as they don't have a true physical or medical disability)!!

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.

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.
