    Correct.

    President Obama didn't award himself the Nobel Prize.

    It was a yes or no question, didnt feel the need to give you more choices.

    You're right, it's not. However, perception is reality.

    Maybe you didn't feel the need, but I did, because I found Bush to be very polarizing.

    The gap between the left and the right was already there when Obama moved into the White House, and Bush was the guy who put it there.

    Wrong.

    My view is that Bush created the gap and Obama has had to deal with it.

    So to the question. "Has Obama created a bigger gap between left and right?" your answer is NO....

    Obama has played the hand that he was dealt.

    I would agree with that, I also wonder what part the 24 news channels play in all this? In terms of fannign the flames that is.
