    The fact that a sufficient percentage of the electorate re-elected BHO was an irresponsible act carried out by victims of an inadequate education system. The real test will come when if they vote for Hillary Clinton in the next election with the same idea of "Let's vote for the first woman President" with the same enthusiasm they did with "Let's vote for the first Black President".

    'Content of character', no matter what the color of the skin or the sex of the person, seems to be a quaint and old fashioned idea now. The uninformed will vote for celebrity and food stamps. They have no idea how to run and manage their own lives, much less that of the world's only remaining Superpower.

    Companies?

    Individuals will have to come up with thousands more dollars and have huge deductibles, which means more out of pocket expenses.

    Where is all this extra money coming from? Straight out of the economy that is where.

    What will the economy be like in 2 or 3 years with billions being taken out to pay for health insurance?

    I think a good word to describe that exchange is childish.

When you start out on day one with stated mission of wanting him to fail in a system where co-operation is required across branches and one of which is controlled by those who want him to fail, its one of those questions we might not ever know the answer to.
    Why would you think what anybody says has an affect on what the President does, or is this just a way to excuse his ineptness?

    I completely agree with your first sentence in the first quote.



    Two points...

    1) The country was on the edge of recession when Clinton left office, as the dot-com bubble was in the process of bursting,

    and

    2) Clinton had the luxury of the dot-com bubble to make him look good. An orangutang would have looked good between 1993 and 1999, economy-wise.
    The divisiveness comes from Obama. In every speech he give he talks about the enemy putting everything in terms of us and them.

    He is supposed to be the President for the whole country but he has never stopped being just a Democrat and protecting his own party.

    Yes it does unless you voted for a third party, independent candidate or stayed home. There were dozens of other options available.

    I'll bet there are now a lot of Americans who regret staying home and not voting but it's difficult to have any sympathy for them.

    A lot of people voted for Obama holding their nose which is why a vote against Romney was not an endorsement of Obama.

    True, but that doesn't make them *intelligent* opinions. For that, you'd have to have context and time.

    Supposedly once more people sign on, it will lower costs. I'm not buying it though.
