    But to be honest with you, I have to tell you that I don't see Obama's ideology as courrupt but that's from the POV of a Canadian, and I would add, most Canadians. So Obama's lean to the left is too little by a country mile. Granted, he could have done a lot more and leaned much farther left if he wasn't hampered at every turn by the rabid and extremist right.

    For you, who is perhaps able to think a little deeper, when you aren't engaging in extremist babbling of the sort above, the Obama agenda is nearly identical with the agenda of your mainstream right. Albeit, they have to attempt to hide that because of the destructive momentum being enjoyed by the baggers at this point in time. In fact, when the baggers have been marginalized and dumped into the trash can of history, the mainstream will begin to bring about the change Obama is failing to accomplish. That's got way too much to do with his big problem right from the beginning and that is that he's a black man. The US south is just not ready and it doesn't take anything more than a quick glance of the political maps of your country to understand that.

    The end of Obama's second term will be a positive thing for your country. Racism will fade back into the slimey grovels of the south and it will no longer be tying the hands of honest Americans who know very well that you're currently on a path to destruction.
    Apparently, the average Canadian liberal is just as clueless as the average American liberal. Probably why they just finished electing a failed highschool teacher with no business or leadership experience as the head of the Liberal Party of Canada. He'd be the poor man's Obama if he wasn't white.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Mr. FŁcks and other Germans say there are several reasons for the change in attitude. The most commonly cited: the presidentís inability to close the prison at GuantŠnamo Bay, continued killings by American drones and, most recently, the disclosure of an extensive program for surveillance of foreigners.

    Are Americans 'really' pretending that it's Obama who won't close Guantanamo when it's clearly your corrupted congress that is preventing it? How surreal can it get with this racist hate for Obama?

    "Hate" is too strong a word, but there are plenty of reasons not to like President Obama's performance in office. His race has nothing to do with it.

    Maybe political disagreements that are legit but if you take away the racist hate you would be left with an overwhelmingly popular president. And that just can't be allowed.

    This is why the resistance being applied by the repubs in your congress has no real purpose or direction. Are the Amereican people going to remain too ignorant to even see that happening? The repubs don't even know how to disagree anymore!

    I'm not really terribly interested in the GOP and what it's up to, but I am concerned with legit problems that have come to light, including the lack of transparency from a President who promised that his admin would be the most transparent ever, the stonewalling of an AG who should never, IMO, have been appointed and who has proven again and again that he's unfit for the job, and the demonstrable targeting of political adversaries by the IRS. Oh, and then there's the snooping into Rosen's and Attkisson's e-mails.

    Lots of legit problems. Obama's race has nothing to do with any of them, and the GOP isn't to blame for any of them either.
