UNBELIEVABLE: 2008 Obama vs 2012 Obama

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

This morning on radio, Glenn played a new video making the rounds of the internet that shows Barack Obama repeating the same promises he made in 2012. From energy policy, to infrastructure, to jobs and education – the video demonstrates how little Barack Obama has been able to accomplish in four years. He’s making the same speeches and the same promises as he did when he first ran for President four years ago.

“It has a sense of total desperation about it now, doesn’t it,” Glenn said.

“I kept trying to think of any other president that’s running like this on the same issue that he couldn’t solve,” Stu said.

“Obviously after, you know, Bush ran on certain things and then in 2004 he ran a second time but it was on new challenges, it was on new approaches, it was on different major issues. That’s not what this president’s doing. He’s saying all the things that you trusted me to fix for the last four years I now need to start fixing,” he added.

Glenn took his analysis a step further, comparing it to someone who promised to fix your house, made things worse, and then asked for more money and resources to do what you hired him to do in the first place.

“Imagine a builder coming to you and saying, look, we’re going to ‑‑ I know your house, the roof is leaking, the plumbing is all gone, the driveway is destroyed, there’s no insulation, and the heater doesn’t work. I know that. I’m going to fix it. Just, I’m going to need massive amounts of money and you’re going to have to leave me alone. You leave him alone, he comes back and your house still has a leaky roof, the insulation is bad, the heater doesn’t work, the road is still all plowed up and you say, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ and he looks at you and says, ‘Look, I can make this happen but you’re going to need to leave me alone and I’m going to need a massive amount of money and I need another four years.’”

Glenn said you would cancel the contract on that guy immediately.

    Same dusty playbook of the democrats for decades.  Tax the rich so they can spend more money and pit the poor against the rich.  What’s new about any of it.  It was old in 2008 as it was in 1964.

    I can’t believe so many people are going to fall for the same old speeches.  A lot of my friends want 4 more  years with Obama and I shake my head and ask them why and they say the same thing as I hear on CBS news.  Tax the rich and make them pay their fair share.  Well how much is fair.  25, 50, 75 90 % of their income?  I would not work if I only received 10% of my income and the rest went to the Government.  Why should they.

     Oh come on Benjamin, you know hes not a republican. Lefties pull this crap all the time. They know coming on here and spouting their trash gets them nothing, so they instead impersonate the right in such a way that fits with their mocking, accusations of what we are. So it’s easier for a leftist to pretend hes a racist republican then just coming on here calling us racist republicans.

    Ben, you need a class in finance and economics. Money, even on Wall Street, doesn’t just multiply by magic. Companies that make money sell goods and services to consumers like us. Apple sells shares on the stock market. Their company is profitable because people by iPhones. Apple pays investors a portion of their profits because those people gave Apple the money to research and develop new products. That portion paid to investors is called dividends. Nasty word according to the left. Apple cannot deduct as an expense the dividends. They pay taxes on that money. Then, the investor gets to pay taxes on that money, too. Meanwhile, Apple EMPLOYS people. You know, gives them jobs? Pays them for working? Isn’t this fun?

    What seems to be your point Benjamin? If the rich works to make their money and pay taxes on it, then invest some of that money into the stock market then have to pay 90% of the profit that they have made from that investment in taxes, not only would I not work but I would not invest in the stock market either.

     You are truly irrational. The stock market is a necessity for ANY marketplace to work. Farmers need money for seed. They sell part of their crop on the futures market, in advance.  Someone buys it and the farmer plants the seed.

    The man that bought the futures contract may or may not make money. When he does, you expect him to turn it over to the government? Because when he loses, they won’t give it back.

    I WAS a trader. I know a thing or two that you obviously do not. I started my day about 5:30. Every day. For years. I needed to know what was happening in a dozen places and then analyze how that might affect any one particular stock. When the markets closed at 4, I had to decide whether I was going to adjust a position in the aftermarket, or ride out the night. I spent the next three hours reading earnings reports, mining results and political shifts in Asia as their markets were opening.

    In one day I traded three million dollars and made only about $250 before expenses. For about 16 hours work. And the days I lost $5000 in a single day.

    Try to tell me you EVER worked that hard – EVER. If you chose to work at Mcdonalds for minimum wage, and have the rest of the day off to goof off and smoke up, why should I give you ANY of my truly hard-earned money?  How much risk did you take flipping burgers? But you want some of my 80 – 90 hour weeks profits? Just because its more than you made?

    You simply don’t know what you are talking about!

     More than 50% already pay no taxes – so just how much is fair? And that 50% plus the bleeding heart left are enough to re-elect the thief in chief to continue to feed themselves from the public trough. It brought down several empires before us. It will almost certainly  happen here.

    Then the medicare is gone. The food stamps are gone The welfare is gone.The pensions are gone.

    And they think paying nothing is fair?

We can not wait another four years for him to go. Vote him and all his buddies from Chicago out. We need a new House and a new Senate and a new president in the oval office. In other words, a new administration.

     What about the profits I make on garage saleing… Almost close to $240K last year… It takes the same amount of work as the market, you research, you invest, you sell for a profit/loss, wash rinse and repeat. Why tax some types profits and not others? Why only tax the rich… Even if the rich pay 80%, so let’s say, on a million net earned, the rich guy pays $800,000. How many people at $50,000 (taxed at 15%) would it take to equal the one guys $800,000. ( I did the math for you, it’s 106 people). So if there’s 107 people in this equation 106 making $50K and 1 guy making $1mill (or dare I say the 1% as they say), that would make 1 person paying 50% of the total tax liability of the entire sample.  To you that’s fair?   And that’s pretty much the model of this country right now, and we still think that taxing “the rich” is the answer?? Perhaps accounting and a basic economics course would help?

    Maybe it’s a spending problem??  And where will they go for income once they’ve taken all the wealth…. Once the recipient class outways the provider class, their model will no longer be viable.

  • http://twitter.com/ckling8 Cindy Klingensmith

    Another way you could look at that is to say that Obama is doing the same things even though he knows they don’t work.  He’s not willing to “change” how he’s doing things because he’s to arrogant and thinks he’s the king. Romney can see that how he thought things were going to turn out was wrong so he changed his mind. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results….nuff said!!!

     That’s exactly what Obama wants.  You see, the “rich” isn’t the ones making $250K/yr or more.  The “rich” is anyone making $100K or more.  Eventually, when there’s no more to take from the $100K/yr folks, it will be those making $75K or more a year… and then $50K or more a year.  Eventually, there won’t be a “middle class”.  There will be the poor and the filthy rich (i.e. Obama, Bono, Cher, Pelosi, Sean Penn, other celebs, etc..)…  They are more than willing to give up 50%, 60%, 70%, 80% because they’ll still have a ton of money.  And then, they will all laugh in our faces for being schmucks and believing Obama.

    No.  Socialism counts on destroying the middle class, leaving only the poor and the elite.  The elite rule, and the poor are only subjects, not citizens, having everything taken from them and a pittance returned because “it’s all that is available” (snicker, snicker by the elite).

    This is why the leaders are so desperate to hang onto power:  If they lose their positions of power, there is a very good possibility they will become one of the subjects under them.  It is also the reason, we, as citizens, must vote them out and limit their time at the top of the food chain.  If we don’t, they’ll get entrenched and we’ll have a ruling class forced upon us.

    Anyone who gambles takes needless risks.  It is in the nature of the game.  The stock market is no different than gambling, so no, it is not ‘work’ and those who have money to throw around on such activities would rather have a check than a job, or they have a job that pays enough for them to squander some of their money in hopes of increasing it.

    Should the government cover losses in the stock market?

    Think of the answer this way:  Should the casinos cover losses of gamblers?

    And, by the way, the government DOES tax winnings from gambling.

Why the liberals want uneven taxation is beyond me:  We have 1% taxed and 99% untaxed (using OCW claims), whereas if we taxed everyone at 10% we’d have a much greater revenue for the economy, both in money to the government and money to create private jobs (rather than government jobs, which create NOTHING, no matter what politicians say).

    Many of Obama’s comments that are shown in the clip are things that most people think are needed to get our country back on track.  The democratic message has not changed much over the last 40 years.  The republican message has changed over the last 40 years and especially in the last 4 years.  I like many Republicans that would not be able to run in today’s political climate  if they kept their message the same….Reagan, Bush Sr., Chuck Hagel, and Bob Dole.  I think that both parties have led us to our current situation.  I hope that the parties can come together and solve some of the major problems such as SS, Medicare and military spending.  I do not have a lot of faith that this will occur anytime soon.  

    This is insanity to me:  http://tpmlivewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/06/tpmtv-latest-videos-jon-stewart-8-presidents-said-well-get-off-foreign-oil—-fool-me-8-times-am-i-a.php

    My point about the video was that I don’t see anything wrong with having a campaign message that is similar to your last campaign.  Mitt Romney concerns me because he changes so often to fit the current trend/fad, that is dangerous characteristic for leader of the free world.  I know that many of the other Republican challengers were concerned about Romney’s flip flops.

    First of im conservative second of this ad or what ever it is, is stupid and ridiculous.  It brings up a small amount of long term issues that Obama has the same views on now as he did in the last election period.  Things such as reforming the broken educational system of america by pursuing and retaining better teachers is not something that can be accomplished in a short amount of time let alone three years (the fourth year being this one leading up to the election). The same principle aplies to renewable and cleaner energy.  If anything this video shows his dedication to important long term troubles that have been over looked for decades. 

    You also can not compair the difference in the landscape between the Bush election years and the Obama election years.  While Bush was in office September eleventh happened which changed America and the issues at hand forever.  Right before Obama step into office the recession started and not a small two year recession but one bordering on a global depression that has lasted nearly 4 years already.  For comparison if 9/11 happend in 1999 both of Bush’s election campaigns would have looked much more simular.

    Lastly I am conservative so I personally do not like many of Obama’s policies especially health care, but videos like these are shallow and easy to take apart.  I’m in college and should be working an a paper but analyzing how flawed this video was easy and much more interesting.  We should be spending our time on issues that we can change and improve.  Lets stop focusing on how much we do not like Obama and focus on how we can implement polices that make America a stronger competitor in the international market, improve our educational system, and make America a better place

Actually, he’s worse than a cretin because a cretin is stupid and errs because of that stupidity. This guy is a charlatan, a con artist, a Saul Alinsky hoop licking piece of refuse that has been robbing the American people blind since the very first day he ever entered politics.

    Sorry Barry, but you’re dead wrong. We don’t all rise together or fall together because not all of us have the same work ethic or morals. Some can’t work for reasons beyond their control, but if they were given the chance they would. Others have no desire to work because they are getting a fat check evey month from the gub’mint. Some of us believe that our freedoms come from our creator, while others believe our freedoms come from the gov’t. Those that wish to rise above it and succeed, do. Those that choose to accept handouts and stay where they are, do.

    The democrat party believes that those who succeed owe their success to society, and should be forced to share their wealth. All that does is demotivate the hard working people that make this country run. Survival of the fittest has always been nature’s way, and charity has always been the thing that helps the less fortunate. Taking money by force is criminal no matter where you live.

    If one voted for B.O. in ’08 based on his promises and he is saying the same thing in ’12, will

    they stupidly vote for him again?   Sadly, the answer is, probably, yes.    Let me remind you of

    what he said and what the results were.  (These are taken from 689 Reasons to Defeat Barack

    Obama in current Nat’l Review.)  #40: Feb. 9, 2009; ”If we get things right then starting next

    year, we can start seeing some significant improvement” on the employment front.

    #41: Because now we have a 24% unemployment rate for people 16 to 19 years old.

    #42: Because the lowest the unemployment rate was during the Obama administration was 8.l.

    #43: Because the current unemployment rate is 8.3% 

    #44: Because 4 million Americans have been out of work for more than a year.

    #45: Because the black unemployment rate is 14.4%.

    #46: And the Hispanic unemployment rate is 10.3%.

    #47: And because the real unemployment rate—including those who have abandoned the job

    hunt—is even higher.

    #48: Because the percentage of working age Americans who are employed has dropped from

    61% to 58%— and stayed there.

    #49: Because, in his own words, his ”first job is to make sure the economy is growing, that we’re

    creating jobs out there.”  You said it, not us.

    #97: Because since he took office, real median household income is down $4,300.

    Um, wonder how much of these stats will be mentioned in the Dem. convention?  You know, as

    incentive for reelection.   (The sound of crickets.)

    Oh, I don’t know T.W.  There are a slew of gov’t workers out there who will vote for him

    because they don’t want to lose their jobs.  And don’t forget all those getting ”freebies”

    from the gov’t—they don’t want to lose them either.  The blacks still intend to vote for

    him in large numbers and he is wooing the Hispanic vote which gave him a lot of votes

    in ’08.  Let’s hope the independents will realize that the ”hope and change” promised in

    ’08 was just a campaign slogan and they should rethink voting for B.O. again. As should

    the youth of America who voted for him last time because he was ”so cool.”  How many

    of them have employment now, I wonder?

    Like I said I do not like many of his policies, my argument is more to the fact that ads and videos like this are counter productive because they have no facts behind them.  All the video showed was that he stands by issues that he stood by four years ago.  It took small sound segments of him saying the same words like him needing help and knocking on doors for him.  Is knocking on doors a major political or social economical situation that he said he was going to change.  Did he say that if you elect me the injustice of knocking on doors would stop, no because that would be stupid.  Then why is it in the video.  If it is just a campaign strategy why would it be in this video that is supposed to show that he promised change (to things that he could change in 4 years) and it did not come.  The video is no where near covering anything that it sounds like it should cover.  It completely misses any main focus that it is meant to achieve.

    The definition of socialism from dictionary.com is: a theory or system of social organization  that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole. 
    It does not say in there to destroy the middle class in fact it says that things are owned by the community as a whole and not some weird elite group that has the poor as their oppressed subjects.  So when you want to debate a certain topic just do a little bit of research it took me no more than a minute to look up the definition of socialism and then a bit less that a minute to understand that no where in the definition does it talk about an elite rule at all.

  • Sunshine Kid

    *I know what definitions are. But definitions are not real world. In the real world, socialism is a step away from communism, and there is no middle class in either political/economic framework. If you think there is, then you are sadly misled and need to study the effects of communism in Russia 1917-1990, Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam and China. Of the aforementioned countries, only Cuba and North Korea are steadfast communist countries; all others have given way to a more capitalistic approach, and they have prospered greatly from such a move; Cuba and North Korea obviously hasn’t changed their approach and haven’t become the ‘worker’s paradise’ they promised.

    What do Allen West, Clarence Thomas, Walt Williams, Alan Keyes, Condoleezza  Rice, Thomas Sowell, Star Parker, Herman Cain, Artur Davis, Larry Elder, Alveda King, Mia Love, Colin Powell, Armstrong Williams, and many many others, have in common? They are all black and are all supported 100% by Republicans and Conservatives. All of these people believe in conservative ideals and policies. Obama believes in Marxist and Socialist ideals and policies. This is the reason that he is not supported by Republicans and Conservatives and not because he looks black. By the way, Obama is not black. He’s only 1/4 black. He’s half white and 1/4 Arab. When are the democrats and leftists going to stop telling the American people the big lie that Republicans and Conservatives are racist?

    Because God said so. Everyone was to pay 10%. Do you really want to know why? Because human nature will eventually decide that they can be lazy and live off of others as we are doing now.
    It does not make us stronger to redistribute wealth, in fact the reverse. A lot of people just want to get by and that’s fine. The same people who genereally won’t save even though they could if they wanted to. If you wish to improve your lot then do what the rich do. Most of them are driven and work constantly to get ahead. They sacrifice time with family and other good times to succeed now so that they can later on down the road enjoy the fruits of their labor. It’s called delayed gratification. And once they get to that point, liberals who have enjoyed their time off to themselves then want the rich to deny themselves when it’s their turn to enjoy life. If you don’t like your station in life work harder and smarter and LONGER. Just don’t ask me for what I’ve worked for.

    If you believe anything the OWS says, I have a bridge I’d sell you for only 200.00. Why not just quote Grimms Fairy tales?

    The OWS people are so accurate that if they said it was Thursday, I’d look at my calendar to be sure.

    Here’s the facts: if the OWS people got their way and the government raised the taxes on the wealthy as OWS wants them to, that would finance the Government for eight , count them, eight days. So here’s a scenario of how things might follow:

    However, it would cut the non-government and non-farm labor force by about 30% within the first year. It would therefor cut the governments taxes from income by an equivalent amount, and add to their expense as those 30% who would now join their OWS friends on the food stamp program. The loss of income available to spend would be drastically reduced, and Starbucks, car dealerships, Best Buy and every other retail business depending on discretionary income would begin a spiral of closures.

    The government would now have an ever increasing number of welfare recipients. More people would lose their jobs, and their houses, and the construction industry would begin to shut down.

    The government by this time is totally out of money and China will no longer continue to loan them the 80 cents of every dollar they spend at that point. Now with only 20% of the available money they had before their credit card cut up available, most government employees are laid off, and all pensions and medical payments are suspended.

    On the otherhand, tax everyone 10% on their buying (or 9 – 9 – 9 as Cain was suggesting) would free up money in corporations to expand, the new jobs would increase the government incomes, and unemployment would drop. Jobs might start returning to America

    You seem unaware that GM, after costing the taxpayer some 50 – 100 billion dollars in government subsidies, has opened 21 new plants in China with all that government money. That’s where the new jobs are, created with the stimulus package. Fiskar got stimulus money and opened their new plant in Finland.

    What these leftist socialists cannot comprehend because of their very limited world view is that money goes where its solicited and stays where its appreciated. Money goes where its welcome. GM found that its money was welcome in China, but not welcome in Detroit. Cap and trade, union demands, obamacare, environmental regulations, taxes – all make it impossible to do business in America.

    And Obama is the biggest outsourcer of jobs this country has ever seen.

    Read Laffer and other solid economists who demonstrate from history that government regulations cost jobs. Cut taxes, and the government coffers fill much faster.

    Have you ever thought of what the rich do with their money? Have you ever compared that to what the government does with the taxes they extort from you? Government spending is usually a simple squandering of whats given out – the Stumulouus actually spent almost 20% of the funds on real job creating projects. The rest went to pay for teachers who were not allowed to teach (4000 in New York alone), union boondoggles and make work projects with huge bonuses to those that came up with the ideas, the afore-mentioned new auto plants built in off shore countries. Left in the pockets of successful businessmen like Romney, Trump, etc, thousands of new jobs, permanent jobs, and growing businesses would be left behind.

    You’ve heard the lies about Romney expressed at the DNC. Poor 700 people let go. That is only a very thin skin of truth stuffed with a lie. What they didn’t tell you was that this plant had been in bankruptcy 8 years prior. Bain put in 300 Million to modernize it. They also had saved a number of other steel industries at the same time.

    The plant that closed had an 8 years extension on its life cycle, and then the union went out on strike for 10 weeks. That raised the cost of doing business at a time when the market was collapsing, and in that period 30 other steel business went bankrupt.

    HOWEVER, by closing this plant, Bain was able to keep the more profitable ones going, rather than loosing them all. Today there are 6000 jobs in that steel company that were not even in existence before Bain took over.

    Are you intentionally being stupid? No one with an income of 20,000 pays any income taxes to speak of. Most tax filers in this bracket actually get tax refunds. I’m not sure of the numbers, because I’ve never been in that bracket, but close to the first 20,000 is basically tax free. And noone EARNING 30,000,000 pays only 15% – you certainly have your definitions crossed. Now if you have made some money and paid your 40% on it, as many have and you invest that money into certain investments approved by the IRS, then you only pay 15% on the dividends you receive. That is because the company has already paid taxes on their profits before the dividends are paid out; to tax them again would be double taxation.

    Buffet is lying, or intentionally misleading, when he says he pays less in taxes than his secretary – He takes no salary! But he does receive dividends, and as stated, pays the 15% approved by the IRS (to encourage investment) on his dividends. But B/H has already paid taxes on the money they earned before paying out their dividends.

    Get yourself an education before you make a repetitive ass of yourself!

    Let me count the ways! Ignoring the constitution and the laws of the US which he swore to uphold makes a good start. I’ll leave you to fill in the 99,999,999 other ways.

    Anyone who spent 25 years in Wrights church listening to (fortifying himself with his tapes, by his own writings) HAS to hate America. You cannot listen to hate that long and not absorb it. Watch 2016 – its a pretty good look into Obama’s mind

    Just what in that statement was racist? YOU are the racist for seeing anything racist in the statement. You surely must be a Democrap, for they see race in everything. By the way, that IS where they are from. Obama? well, he claimed to be from Kenya when it was to his advantage, and that is what he told his publicist for the promo on his books. That fact is indisputable AND in writing.

    How are the banks robbing the American people? Why should you ask more of the 250 people? because they work harder and have saved more? those who have spent every cent of income and are over their head in a home they should never have bought deserve government financial help? Many if not most of those earning over 250 are small businesses, and they declare as a sole proprietorship. They may actually have 30,000 for the owner to spend, the rest is expenses. How many of them do you think could survive higher taxes? If you live in some cities, a two bedroom apartment can cost 4,000 a month – that’s 50,000 just for a roof over your head. Should that person be taxed the same as one renting for 400 a month, but earning less?

    As long as the socialist/marxist/left see success as a cash cow, businesses will not open, or expand. Many will move away. I have an offshore business entity, and I may just move where my offshore entity is. WAAAY lower taxes, no unions, fewer government regulations, and a less stressful life. Wonderful medical services and very low costs. If it wasn’t for grandkids, I probably would have taken my money and been gone long ago!

    Why should I work so the government can steal my money to give to someone who refuses to work, preferring to smoke up and laty around all day.

    All welfare recipients should be in school, and drug tested monthly. Don’t pass? Positive test? no cash. Its as simple as that!

    Socialism has been around for centuries – and in almost every area except America (up til now) It has never worked anywhere. The concept is self defeating. Look at Europe right now – their bonds are worth pennies on the dollar, and no one will continue to loan them money to continue to pay out benefits that have long since past been able to pay for.

    When my allowance runs out, I have to wait til it gets replenished, through work or other income. Socialism ALWAYS spends mote then it takes in and ALWAYS end up broke. And when the government runs out of money and can no longer afford the utopian dreams of its citizens, Chaos breaks out with death destruction and ruin.

    It has never failed to happen. Why? because human nature is such that if there is no reward for your labors, you don’t labor. It has always been that way, and always will be.

    And if you have to share as a group your income, some will let the others do all the work. A simple example to show this is sharing marks at school – why shouldn’t the smart ones have to share their marks with those who refuse to show up for class?

    That, in a nutshell, is Socialism.

    With the worlds second highest tax rate, why would any business actually hire ANYONE here? Its cheaper and more profitable to manufacture in Mexico, or Bolivia, or Bangladesh

    And of course a flat tax is fair. It removes savings from taxation. It affects the rich and poor equally. While the rich may legally claim a lot of legitimate expenses, a flat tax would affect them more then the poor because they spend more. But it will never happen, because the the government cannot pick winners and losers by manipulating tax codes. Particularly THIS government.

    You need to understand that the poor pay NO TAXES! They don’t pay less. You are talking about apples and oranges. The normal tax rate that people pay is on earnings. The 15% some people pay is not on earnings – its on dividends – income that has already been taxed twice, and this is the third tax on the same money. I explained this in detail in another post. If you are TRULY interested in learning, read it. If you are just here to unthinkingly echo the trash you get from OWS and other totally ignorant sources like the democrats, then please go away! You waste everyone’s time with mindless verbal diarrhea.

    Are you making a point? Personally, my understanding is he took nothing. And the budget of the Olympics is private I think – they are a for profit corporation, I’ve been told. So I doubt that there was much money went into the corporation itself.

    They did however make a lot of capital improvements. I’ve been to SLC often and there are new buildings left from the Olympics that benefit the taxpayers, so I suppose that’s justified.

    Not one vote was allowed the GOP on the healthcare bill. Thatv was only passed by criminal activity.

    The GOP has passed four budgets. Reid won’t let any of them come up for a vote.

    You sure can’t fix stoopid! Lets see, he was raised in Indonesia – how does that make him American? He wants to change America – so obviously he doesn’t like it. He despises the constitution. He violates the laws he swore to uphold. And you have the nerve to say that he is more American that someone who has never been away from their homeland, has always tried to abide by the laws of the land he loves, and actually works for a living.

    Just think a bit before you write – it would earn you a lot less scorn from people who do!

    It sounds like he’s remained consistent in what he considers to be most important. Notice how he doesn’t talk about Bin Laden…that’s because he checked that box off. I’m in a masters program and I keep talking about graduation. Each year, I say the same thing. Yet, I haven’t graduated yet. Does that mean I have failed? No, that means I’m staying the course.

    The fact that this page is encouraging instant gratification is part of the bigger problem. You would assume that everything should have been fixed overnight. You left off all the things he repealed or addressed. You left off his killing of Bin Laden and withdrawal from Iraq.

    Did we all say that to President Bush when he couldn’t find Bin Laden? No, we re-elected him because we felt like he needed more time.

    I love being rational and would have truly appreciated an article or video that pointed out what went right and went wrong. Too bad…guess I’ll get my “news” from somewhere else.

    That contractor reference was horrible. That’s a contract? Did Obama sign a contract and have specific performance included? No, he stated his goals for his administration. Some goals were met while others weren’t or haven’t been met. Still the goals haven’t been changed or altered due to public opinion. His term isn’t over yet and I would argue the Republican desire, as Senator McConnel stated, was/is to make him a one-term President. How in the heck was he supposed to get ANYTHING done when the other side simply wanted to watch him fail. I would have also loved to hear you mention that as a reason why he hasn’t gotten stuff done.

    In fact, let’s use that as part of your contractor reference. If you didn’t allow the contractor in your home or on your land to facilitate completing the project would the contractor be responsible for not finishing his work? No, it would be argued that you impeded his progress as the person supplying the resources. This is the same thing that has happened with Congress over the last four years. A contract requires consideration from two parties!

    I really wish you would apologize for your article, but I know that will never happen. We have so much hubris in this country that we can’t even acknowledge when a person does a good job or when we’re wrong. That’s the fundamental problem with our system right now. It’s a sad state of affairs…

    happylada what are you talking about? Of course you can hear someone elses dodgy views and not end up believing them yourself… People aren’t zombies. And nothing he’s done in these four years suggests he agrees with Jeremiah Wright’s views.Giving 50 million people healthcare who didn’t previously have it – that sounds like he’s trying to bring america down doesn’t it… Jeez

  • Anonymous

    Yes, it actually DOES sound like he’s trying to bring America down. You see, the whole healthcare problem in this country is the single LARGEST drain on our debt. There is NO budgetary issue that is a bigger drain than Social Security and Medicare. Giving 50 million people healthcare who didn’t previously have it will add just hundreds of billions, and eventually trillions, in new debt. No. The government should NOT be in the healthcare industry at all. The government should remain OUT of it and leave it to the private sector. The whole concept of free universal healthcare is bogus anyway. Look at Canada and Europe, for crying out loud. Their “free, universal” healthcare is neither free nor universal, lol. Will that work here? Since it has yet to actually work for them, my guess is absolutely NOT. It will NOT work here.

    Americans have such short memories. 4 years ago Banks were going bankrupt like flies dying. Today Americans feel safe to put money in Banks again.Americans want everything quickly, like fast food. However it still takes 8 or more years to become a doctor. Why do people feel that the largest Economy in the world is so easy to fix, when many have spent their entire lives trying to budget their family income and still falls short. Why would you return the same Mechanics ..( Republicans) who messed up your car, to repair it again. Republicans only know how to fix when they are out of power. They will say anything mostly false statements in order to win. They do not care about America, only about helping themselves get rich and helping the rich. If that party did nor ever exist America would have been a greater country. Government is for the people, and the people is not ‘The rich.” They have blocked Obama’s policies, then blame him afterwards. If they did not block his policies, then they would have been justified to criticize. Nonetheless, Obama has done great because America is stronger than even Europe now. America could have been worse than Europe if Republicans were in Power. Europe was using Republican’s policies, hence they deteriorated from 4 years ago being stronger that the US to going bankrupt one after the other now. HOW SOON WE FORGET. Rome was not build in a day. and The American Economy is not a family Budget to be repaired overnight. Why don’t you all pay off your Mortgage in 4 years?? That’s just a drop in the bucket compared to the Economy. When you can pay off your mortgage in 2 to 4 years the expect The President to fix the economy in 8 years. What irrational people. Listen to Economists and they will say that Obama has the Right Policies for the Economy. Only uneducated people swallow what Republicans blab about. America will suffer again like before if Republicans get in Power. They are the one who build up the Deficit , both Bushes. Now they pretend they know how to fix it. Why not in the Bushes’ years.. For The Best America Ever..Vote Obama. You will never regret like for G. Bush. The Ground work is being laid for a booming America in the next few years. Don’t miss this opportunity…

  • Logical1

    Most of the persons who are against Obama get their propaganda from Fox. Stop looking at Fox and listening to those Republican talk radios and you will be more rational in thinking.These are Brain washing media. Remember the announcers are paid to say these things, whether they believe it or not. Once you pay a person to do something they will do it whether they like it or not. If you pay a house keeper to clean your toilet they will do it. Does not mean that they believe they should be doing it but they got paid to do a job. Such is the case with the brainwashing Republican Media..Try listening to other media and expand your knowledge. America is not an Island to fix its Economy in 4 years. It is the Largest Economy in the World..Put that into perspective and compare with your own little economy at home. Besides in the free enterprise system, cycles have to run their course. This is not a socialist country where the Government creates the Jobs. In a Socialist Country one can blame the Government because they provide the jobs. We want our cake to be Capitalist free Enterprise, but when things are down we want the Government to be Communist and create all the Jobs. We are not in Russia. Think of it Free Enterprise means that Businesses and prices are determined by the Free Market WITHOUT Govt. intervention. suddenly everyone wants Govt. to behave like Communist countries. Think of it. Let the Economy take its course and it WILL rise again. Have patience impatient Americans. A simple degree takes four years, why shouldn’t fixing the Economy take 8 or 10 years. Be practical. If you had to push a small car you may use 2 men, if you are pushing a Tractor Trailor, You would use 20 men. Not every job uses the same amount of effort… Be Practical. Be patient. Or America will suffer with the Republican Policies.

    I think I had that contractor working on my house! Just like I couldn’t keep that contractor, we can’t keep this president. And just like that contractor, our president either doesn’t know what he is doing, or he knows what he is doing and trying to take us to the cleaners anyway. Either way, it is a scary proposition. I think he DOES know what he is doing. The “fundamental change” he has in mind for America has nothing to do with what his supporters think he is talking about. He is crafty as a fox and says things that mean one thing to him, but knows they are being interpreted differently by the public. Think about his statements, they can mean more than one thing. Obama’s actions don’t make any sense if you are operating under the assumption that he wants good things for America. If you really think he has the best interests for American at heart, go see the documentary 2016. Suddenly, all the nonsense makes sense. And not in a good way. I fear for our country, not so much for myself, because I am prepared, but for all the children and grandchildren in this country who will inherit the choice we make in November.

They just mindlessly follow Obama. He’s spends billions of our tax $ and has nothing positive to show for it.

    Add to this the fact that when he was a young boy, he went to a Muslim school for several years and studied the Koran.
    Several years of that and the influence of his Muslim father — All these elements are forever stuck in the subconscious mind and helped to shape who he is as a person today.
