    From my perspective, they are all right-wing.

    maybe right-wingers don't want to say "yes" to the poll, cause it will show Obama isn't the devil

    As a side note, only one President has ever directly affected the quality of my life that I can absolutely blame on him (it was negatively affected).

    Pres. Bush (Jr.) came onto our ship right before we were going to pull into San Diego after being out to sea for almost 10 months to make the "Mission Accomplished" speech. Those of us on the flight deck listening to it could see San Diego from the deck. In fact, we were close enough to pull in the day before.

    At the time, this was definitely a crappy thing. Overall though, it didn't really greatly affect the quality of my life as a whole. I'm pretty sure there is little a President can do directly to affect the quality of a person's life in a lasting way.

    The "devil" is those who lie, twist the truth, state opinion as fact.
    Of course, I am not above doing this......at times
    I do not think I am better off than I was 3 years ago.
    But whose fault is this ?
    Not our President, be it Obama, Reagan, or Bush.
    Mine.
    I am doing OK thanks to the "liberals" and Franklin Roosevelt.
    My family, 20 years down the road will be doing well, IMO, thanks to President Obama.

    Wow, 232 posts on this thread so far.
    In the past 3 years:
    1) Feb 2010, we purchased, short sale, a home in the Phoenix area in a neat neighborhood that we enjoy in the winter. The neighborhood now has fewer vacant homes and the 'Zillow' value is going up.
    2) We made the highest offer (about 37% of new construction), short sale, on another home. Expecting this to complete shortly. This will be an investment and a place for a family member.
    3) Our home in MI has held it's value since our purchase 6 years ago is valued slightly above our purchase price.
    4) Our 'stock' investments have done very well, and we've moved them to a manager so we have more free time.
    5) Our performance in a athletic sport has improved significantly and we'er having more fun than ever with it.
    6) Our first grandchild, healthy, born Dec 31.
    7) I've been 'retired' at 55, about a decade ago. My wife retired 2009. We are very busy now, and it's fun.

    Our only problem is: What kind of social safety net our sick family member will have when we are gone. Without our management and our dealing with government offices there will be problems.

    Aunt Spiker is debatable. I didn't say they were all right wing. I said they were mostly right wing.

    Your wrong my left wing friend, I am not surprised at all....I have been a member here for almost 7 years and I know the make up of the people and their political views. I can assure you that the results of this poll do not reflect how people feel on the national level.

    If you blame the president for all your problems, it's no wonder your life sucks so much. First of all, you criticized Obama because your stock portfolio has been flat. Well, the market as a whole is up 60% since he took office, so chalk that one up to your own financial incompetence. Second of all, you attacked Obama from the LEFT for not giving you a handout (i.e. you wanted a COLA when the cost of living hadn't increased according to the statistical calculations).

    Here's some advice for you: If you want to be better off than you were 3 years ago, then worry about how to make your OWN life better, rather than how Obama impacts your life. There's nothing you can really do about that, aside from voting/campaigning for someone else.

    Don't shed any tears for me my left wing friend I am fine because I am retired and planned for my retirement.......I just feel sorry for those who didn't and all the broken promises Hussein Obama made.......
