If Obama is highly intelligent like some people think I have no idea why he hasn't applied it to his work. Actions mean more than words. That's my honest opinion.
    Agreed that Obama is smart enough, and thereby missed his chance to be a good president.
    his problem is he is self serving, just watching the little coming down the airplane steps strut he has developed tells you he is enjoying the journey instead of looking for the end game.
    By running and certainly winning the office one has to forget the journey, no time to enjoy it, thats not your right to. You gave yourself to serve..
    but he cant help himself, the fact that he hasnt fallen completly on his face yet is only due to his intellect. he's that smart.

    But he never had any intention of leading this great country anywhere, he had a free pass in his pocket form the beginning, from blaming Bush to having an entire race of people steadfastly following him like he is some sort of messiah that enabled them to tell thier children "see son, you can be anything you want".
    he coupled that with the youth of America's never ending quest for "this is not my fathers America, its ours" and rode it to the dance.

    now that hes there I'm afraid he has been exposed..
    the middle just needs a viable candidate and this phony is one and out.
    But with the power of the media its quite possible he will get 8 years.. I'm just not sure this country can afford 5 more of what we have seen so far.

    But he didn't wait. He announced today, May 9th, 2011.

    Former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich has announced that he will be seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. president in 2012. Gingrich’s plans were made public via Facebook and Twitter Monday, where he also asked supporters to tune into his Fox News interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday night.
    Oh...Newt...Back when he was relevant, I got my first cell phone and Whitney Houston wasn't a crack-whore.

    I do agree with everything you said and the main stream media will try to beat and disgrace every WHITE opponent and accuse them of prejudice, the only one who can't be accused of will be Cain since he is black, the others are not even moving targets, the main stream media will attack them fiercely, mark my words.
    Good 'ol mainstream media.
    Catch me if you can.

    He prevented another Great Depression that we were spiraling towards when he took office. He reduced unemployment, he increased the stock market gains, he increased the GDP, he saved two of the country's largest carmakers and the millions of people that depend on them for jobs, he passed the most significant health care reform in a half century, he has done more to cut CO2 emissions than any president in history, he has invested more in alternative energy, including nuclear power, than any president in history, and he orded the death of Bin Laden, something the last administration couldn't do in 2 full terms! Those are highlights of just some of his accomplishments!

    Great thing to say, except they have no front players, no one on the bench and a very, very weak farm system. The Repubs best use of money is to punt the presidency, as they have no shot, and spend their money on congress, particularly the Senate.

    I feel very kind today and I will give you a break on all the mentioned points that you made except for the point about reducing unemployment. He spent a trillion on that and pledged that with the trillion the job rate would be reduced to 8%. The unemployment rate is 9%. The ObamaCare will cost us money instead of saving and that's why 70% of the people are against it. Obama's ratings were in the low 40's and the Bin Laden killing saved him (for now) even though it took him 16 Hrs. to make up his mind about killing Bin Laden. I can keep on and on but you love Obama and nobody can change your mind, it's like telling a guy who is blindly in love that his girl is no good but he thinks that his girl can do no wrong, so keep on thinking that Obama is the best president we ever had if this keeps you happy and keep on wearing those rose color eye glasses.

    No one expected the Bush recession to be as bad as it was.........hell, McCain wasn't even aware we were in a recession during his campaign. Yet, even with the serverity of the Bush recession, Obama has reversed the Bush unemployment trend:

    The ObamaCare will cost us money instead of saving and that's why 70% of the people are against it.
    Health care reform reduces the deficit over 10 years and a majority do no want it cut.

    "A new Post poll shows that 50 percent of those surveyed oppose the "Obamacare" law, while 45 percent support it. But these numbers are misleading, since The Post reports that "a quarter of those who oppose the health-care law say the legislation is faulty because it did not go far enough, not because it pushed change too far."

    In other words, one-fourth of the law's opponents believe it should have been more ambitious and far-reaching, not less so. These are people who would have liked to see single-payer universal care, or tighter regulation of insurance companies, or less restrictive language on abortion rights -- hardly positions that John Boehner and Eric Cantor would endorse. By counting them among opponents of the law, Republicans are essentially arguing that Michael Moore is on their side.

    Subtracting these dyed-in-the-wool progressives from the "anti-" column leaves just 37.5 percent opposed to the health-care law. Putting the Moore crowd in the "pro-" column, where ideologically it belongs, means that 57.5 percent of Americans support what Republicans deride as a "big government takeover of health care."

    Obama's ratings were in the low 40's and the Bin Laden killing saved him (for now) even though it took him 16 Hrs. to make up his mind about killing Bin Laden.
    Better than the 8 years that Bush couldn't make up his mind.

    I can keep on and on but you love Obama and nobody can change your mind, it's like telling a guy who is blindly in love that his girl is no good but he thinks that his girl can do no wrong, so keep on thinking that Obama is the best president we ever had if this keeps you happy and keep on wearing those rose color eye glasses.
    More of your unsubstantiated opinions will carry the same weight your unsubstantiated opinions above carry, nothing. There is much I disagree with Obama about - the continuation of the Bush wars, excessive military spending, and the continuation of the tax cuts being the biggies. If there had been a liberal candidate with a chance to win in 08 I would have never have voted for Obama. He was simply the less of the evils running. Same for this election, if we get a liberal candidate with a chance of winning, Obama is history as far as I am concerned.
