    I beg to differ. I think if some of the main parts of Obamacare were given more leeway, there would be room to maintain service. However, as it's written, it's going to come to a time where it will be like Canada, and holding private insurance is not only frowned upon, but actually illegal.

    I'm also leery of the idea that American health care provides great service. Our doctors are the best trained but that only matters to the extent they put all their effort into their work, something they aren't really required to do to make the living that they do.
    It provides excellent service, but often falls behind in ratings of world health care because they measure health care as a national aggregate as opposed to using the population with reasonable access to health care. If you have 25 million people without care, on their charts, your quality of service falls. It shouldn't. They should use the sample populace of those who can actually go to doctors on private care. If that happened, I would bet that they'd be on the list somewhere below Cuba and a few Asian nations, and comfortably over a good majority of the world.

    I voted other.
    He will live up to some points and other points he will fail. Thats just how it is for any president. The economy will slowly get better.

    Of course not. He didn't live up to his campaign promises in 2008, why would we expect any better from 2012?

    Like all politicians, Obama is a lying sleazeball.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I will agree that his first term was not one of continuity, but I will say that when somebody says something you give them the benefit of the doubt. I think this election humbled him, and showed him that he is not as loved and not as many people have bought into him as before and I think he takes it upon himself to change that. Of course I have certainly been wrong before

And I hope republicans stop trying to derail him for their own political gain.

    I hope there is no compromise.

    Compromise is not a dirty word. Much of America has been based on compromise.

    You mean like the Democrats do every time there's a Republican in the White House?
