    That decision was made when? The clinging to "their guns and bibles comment or when he strutted into the Oval Office and declared the entire Republican congress "enemies".

    All that happened even before Obama sent in the rational and sane Senator Reid and his "terrorists", "jihadists", and "traitors". And wasn't Obama's SIDE of the congress the ones who shelved a few hundred bills and claimed "obstruction", the same bunch of ignorant slobs who brought in the "nuclear option".

    You see, Obamabots need to understand, a war starts when one side ATTACKS and Obama was the one to say "enemies": and promise to fight the Republican evil.......

    But, you got seven years right.......seven years of zero progress.

    Not saying Obama was any different. Just poking holes in the mistaken idea that electing a Republican will fix that.

    Sad? I doubt it. But you should be depressed as ****.

    Seven years after having been elected on "hope and change" you have no hope and the only change there has been is a complete refusal to work with congress and listen to the message of the American people and get the ****ing country working again.

    Instead, you poke fun at the OP, while ignoring the many disasters of this administration, and how hopeless is your president. Nothing is ever accomplished through confrontation, at best, even the civility of the courts delays real change by years or even decades.

    You also ignore the will of the people, whose voice was clear to most professional political scientists, they want these age old problems fixed, they do not want petty, superficial, name calling feuds, they want answers.

    Sad? No, perhaps borderline suicidal knowing those answers are not even going to be addressed.
    Apparently you got the idea that I am a huge supporter of Obama. I didn't even vote to re-elect him, I know failure when I see it. And the last 2 Presidents we've had have been doozies.

    Since you are the only perfect candidate that can get things done, why don't you run for Congress?

    No support from the major parties is a crippling handicap. Though I was disappointed in the Independence Party's failure to even have a candidate.

    That is why you instigate change from the bottom up, not the top down. No Third Party candidate is ever going to win on the National level until they build an organization from the top down. Third Party candidates don't have a chance so all supporters do is whine and complain.

    There seems to be a few posters who think that any moronic post about Obama should just get a pass because he's so bad that even if something about him is untrue or stupid, Obama apparently deserves it.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I understand your point but when we start calling our opponents enemies, how much common ground or compromise do we actually expect to happen?

    I don't agree with the stance that we are enemies. I believe we will continue to stifle any growth or recovery with continued or additional division.

Just goes to show how poor of an executive he is and just how incompetent throwing a tantrum when he doesn't get his way. So much for negotiation
    the turd is going to go down in history as a major failure and he is trying to do something so he isn't ranked below Jimmy Carter

    Wow. Sounds like he's salivating at the prospect of fighting with the GOP for the next 2 years. What a unifier he turned out to be.
