Maybe there are a lot of people that deep down inside don't like him because he is black. I don't like him either, but I am a lifelong member of the GOP. I have some grounds. Having said that, Obama is a lot better than his predecessor, Bush, an whole lot better, and no better or worse than most that we have had in the last few decades.
    I stand by my statement. I've never seen the country as divided as it is today.

    Good. I suppose you weren't there in the streets to see the protests against the Vietnam War, the Watts Riots, or the fight in the streets outside the Democratic Party Convention in Chicago in 1968. People were talking revolution in those days.

    Not that bad now. Not that bad at all.

    I wasn't alive then, so no. The OP asked what our opinions are, and I have given mine. No one says you have to agree, but for as long as I can remember the country has never been so divided. Of course, I can't judge a president from a time before my existence, just as you can't, so I am making my judgment according to MY knowledge.

    You mentioned that people were talking about "revolution" in those days. Well, I really think there are groups of people are ALWAYS thinking along those wave lengths. I've heard people talking about when Bush was president due to the war, and I hear people saying it about the current president Obama too.

    And your point is? Mine is, nothing more than what you stated. He is not the best President, but also not the worst. He is, however, what we have. That people you hear about might be preppers expecting the oncoming Zombie apocalypse, digging cellars and hoarding guns and ammo are very scary individuals, though they pass themselves off for the most part as normal.

    The world is not collapsing. Obama has done a fair job for the crappy situation that the last President left him to clean up. If a few disgruntled people out there don't like that, who helped create this situation in the first place, well, I guess they will just have to drink more and continue watching with fervor Walking Dead season 4.

    Regardless of all that nonsense about zombie apocalypse, the country is NOT doing so well. Obama has NOT done a fair job at cleaning up anything. He has merely put Band-Aids on the wounds.

    Theres a difference thought that I think cannot be ignored. During the 60's you had two huge culture issues colliding; the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War. Obviously one of those things would cause great upheaval, two just make things worst. But we don't have any of those situations. Sure we've been at war for a while, but the anger for it never got to the level of Vietnam. Today is just raw hatred for the other side, no more no less. I tried watching Crossfire cause I thought it be nice to hear a decent debate. The only take away I got was just how much they hated each other. Can't work with someone you hate.

    Sometimes in a field situation that and a dry-on rag is all you have to work with. In the end, he is the President, and its his hair that is turning white prematurely, not ours. (well, mine is already doing that, but at a normal pace)

    I agree. I have never seen so much hatred.
