    I'm not asking for vote changes. Hell, Romney has a dog also (rather famous dog actually). I'm just trying to get them to do what's right for America.

    I'm sure Obama will get a cat if it means 1 more vote. Least his daughters will.

    Obama's daughters have allergies. That's why they had to find a hypo-allergenic dog.

    How can these people lead us when they can't even accept a basic fact?
    interesting take
    if only Obama had stray pussy around the white house like clinton, he would have been a better president

    Obama has disappointed me in so many ways
    - did not come out in obvious support of the recommendations of the Bowles-simpson report
    - patriot act re-established without his veto
    - too big to fail banks are even bigger
    - geithner who was a big part of the melt down is still a big part of the problem
    (geitner's) treasury is prohibiting sound community banks from making prudent loans to small business
    - NAFTA still exists, giving the world's foremost market to foreign concerns to the detriment of domestic business
    - single payer was avoided so that we now are MANDATED to purchase health coverage from the insurance industry
    - dubya, cheney, rummy, and company are still walking free as a bird despite massive evidence to show their violations of American and international law
    - assented to canadian oil sands-pipeline
    - GE pays no taxes. like over 50% of other corporate America
    - continued taxpayer loopholes for the rich
    more war ... so much for change we can believe in
    - no glass-stegall, instead a watered down dodd-frank where the regulations have not been written three years later
    - attorney general is either a liar or an incompetent and is still on the job
    - bunker busters sold to israel
    - panetta head of DoD after screwing up his term at CIA
    - dubya tax cuts extended
    - nothing has been done to address the reality of climate change
    - walked away from supporting the unions in wisconsin, ohio, michigan
    - failed to support occupy wall st
    - NO prosecution of bank executives
    - mortgage HAMP refi program mismanaged
    - $Trillions spent to cover fannie mae, freddie mac, ginnie mae losses ... despite there being NO federal obligation to do so after they were privatized
    - loans money to banks at discount window rate of $7500 per $1million (.75%); redeems bonds from banks at $30,000 per $1million (3%), thereby forking over taxpayer dollars to the banks at the rate of $22,500 per $1million borrowed
    - clarence thomas' failure to declare income for multiple years and NO investigation
    - gitmo still open with no end in sight
    - appointed a bunch of politicians who could run a campaign but who were unable to run a government
    - refusal to cut off israeli money when israel refused to cease construction in the disputed territories


    and he is still better than mitt

    but much worse than Jill Stein or Gary Johnson
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Re: Why I am disappointed in Obama

    Wow. Very good post! I agree with some of your statements:

    - did not come out in obvious support of the recommendations of the Bowles-simpson report - Must research
    - patriot act re-established without his veto - yeah, big disappointment but no real surprise
    - too big to fail banks are even bigger - yes, ridiculous
    - geithner who was a big part of the melt down is still a big part of the problem
    (geitner's) treasury is prohibiting sound community banks from making prudent loans to small business - Keeping Geithner and Bernakey was a shock to me
    - NAFTA still exists, giving the world's foremost market to foreign concerns to the detriment of domestic business - not sure how to get out of that mess
    - single payer was avoided so that we now are MANDATED to purchase health coverage from the insurance industry - the Obamacare bill is the most overblown legislation ever. I could have written a better bill myself.
    - dubya, cheney, rummy, and company are still walking free as a bird despite massive evidence to show their violations of American and international law - well, understandable
    - assented to canadian oil sands-pipeline - not familiar
    - GE pays no taxes. like over 50% of other corporate America - this is just plain disturbing
    - continued taxpayer loopholes for the rich - GOP opposition is part of the problem to be fair
    more war ... so much for change we can believe in
    - no glass-stegall, instead a watered down dodd-frank where the regulations have not been written three years later - once again, it seems that bankers write their own laws
    - attorney general is either a liar or an incompetent and is still on the job - agreed
    - bunker busters sold to israel - I'm OK with that
    - panetta head of DoD after screwing up his term at CIA - no familiar
    - dubya tax cuts extended - GOP resistance and Obama's small balls
    - nothing has been done to address the reality of climate change - America? Reality? We're incapable of this
    - walked away from supporting the unions in wisconsin, ohio, michigan - unfamiliar
    - failed to support occupy wall st - actually, I think he did up to a point
    - NO prosecution of bank executives - yup. Disgusting.
    - mortgage HAMP refi program mismanaged - all these housing programs are written by idiots.
    - $Trillions spent to cover fannie mae, freddie mac, ginnie mae losses ... despite there being NO federal obligation to do so after they were privatized = agreed
    - loans money to banks at discount window rate of $7500 per $1million (.75%); redeems bonds from banks at $30,000 per $1million (3%), thereby forking over taxpayer dollars to the banks at the rate of $22,500 per $1million borrowed - Yup. I've bitched long and loud about this money shuffle that help a few billionaies make even more money. Revolting.
    - clarence thomas' failure to declare income for multiple years and NO investigation - never heard about this.
    - gitmo still open with no end in sight - Mostly a NIMBY problem. Americans are scared of everything.
    - appointed a bunch of politicians who could run a campaign but who were unable to run a government - evidently
    - refusal to cut off israeli money when israel refused to cease construction in the disputed territories - I support Israel but they really play us don't they. They have ZERO respect for us and they don't care that we see it.

    Re: Why I am disappointed in Obama

    I am not disappointed in Obama ... considering the downward spiral this country was heading in ... I would give him a B+. He is very much a centrist so the far left are not going to appreciate him.

    While I agree with some of the comments ... I only expected progress, not a magician to clean up the mess.

    A second term will be forward progress.

    If he wins I think he should grow a fro and go full throttle!
