    Have you ever had such sentiments?
    Of course he is my President.

    Just like GWB was my President.

    But your poll choices suck.

    The poll options were flawed. The President is my President no matter who wins because I am an American. That's the system put in place by the Constitution. I'm bound to disagree with certain Presidents. No matter who I vote for, at some point that person won't win.

    If anyone says he's "not their President" they have no respect for the Constitution or for the system of government it created.

    I did not vote for him and do not support his polices, but he is my President and the President of my country. Since he won a legitimate election.

    I wish we could get a little of our John Wayne on...
    I didn't vote for him, but he's my President, and I hope he does a good job
    This goes for the right and the left.

    It's worth nothing to me.

    I couldn't care less where you stay, or if you go.

    In any case have a nice day while we watch the GOP fade away.

    He's every American's president, whether they like it or not.

    The funny thing is the folks on the right saying they will move to Canada if Obama is elected - and they indicate healthcare as a huge reason.

    It was beyond funny, I always wanted to say - you get my point - screw this middle of the road stuff - go to Canada with an actual socialized medicine structure.

    I'm Canadian, so perhaps my opinion means squat here - but I'll give it anyway

    Having respect for the office, the highest electoral office in the land, does not equate absolutely to showing or having respect for the person who actually holds the office. Having the ability and the strength to vehemently disagree with what your elected representative is doing in his/her office is the very essence of democracy.

    If people blindly support President Obama against all evidence suggesting they should do otherwise, that doesn't make them patriotic, that just makes them blind fools. For the better part of a decade or perhaps more, people have been stroking Obama as if he's some kind of genious and now the dolt actually believes it. Perhaps if he'd gotten a little more friction in his face before now, he wouldn't be such an arrogant, egotistical, poor excuse of a leader.

    I am predicting that the way things look right now that it's likely that the person who takes Obama's place will be a Democrat.

    I agree, but we in the general electorate have the power to change all of this. But we won't. Very few look at how our elected officials actually govern. They listen to their rhetoric and buy into that rhetoric, even though they govern completely the opposite. Then there are those who in their heart and mind, know what every the elected official did or said was wrong, but that official is of the same party and they will defend them to the max. This all comes back to that party over country, loyalty to party thing.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
