    13%?? Better check your math.
    Well, I did get that part wrong. Thanks for pointing that out. But the real scary number for you Hazlnut, should be the 54% of "Likely voters" that do not want you in.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Does this have anything to do with what I said? You took a comment saying one thing, spun it into something entirely different, and now are trying to spin again.

No wonder he feels he needs such a big war chest of money this time around....Deflect and distract you know.

    Yeah, but this is nothing new.

    The President is a single man. No single man can ever emobody the incredibly wide political spectrum of the U.S. in its entirety, and even a very few embody even a majority of the political spectrum of the U.S. Most of the time, the President embodies a majority within a majority, which nationally means a minority.

    But that's also caused because of our political system. The primaries determine which candidate embodies the majority from within one of the two parties, and then whichever one of those get the majority vote from the electoral college is chosen to lead the executive branch. So our electoral process naturally causes this, and always has.

    But the President, while he represents the whole of American people, does not represent the politics of the American people. That purpose is delegated to Congress.

    So if 24% of people nationwide find that the President holds political views close to their own I would say that that's pretty average for what it should be, if not good.

    And if we want a President that a higher percentage of people agree with on policies then we shouldn't attack the President for the fact that he doesn't but rather implement an electoral process that better allows such a person to get elected President.

    It's not rock-star candidates that Republicans have to be wary for, as they usually don't choose rock-star candidates anyways.

    Rather, they're going to have to be wary of douchebag candidates who are going to call Obama the worst President 3V4R for implementing socialist communist Marxist Nazi Kenyan anti-colonialist anarchist tyrannical policies without detailing their own detailed choices for policies on certain issues.

    Oh, wait a minute here. I think you are setting up a situation where only Obama can use attacks to campaign on. Listen, most people don't have the first clue concerning the complexity of issues that are boiled down to sound bytes on a regular basis. So it is just a little more than unfair to expect them to formulate an opinion that someone like us in forums like this who live, breath, and discuss politics daily.

    This is why the media is such a strong tool, and when that has openly gone as biased as it has, then it is really screwed up.

    However there's a big difference between the President's views and his actions.

    Not acting on your views is not the same thing as being a liar. There can be several reasons to not act on your views. Those views may not be a good thing to implement all at once, those views may not be what you ran on, those views may be something that would never pass congress, and so on.
