    If I say I like big booty girls, that is an opinion, is subjective, and the truth.

    It's useless because it is a poor excuse and not convincing at all.

    He was elected twice. America looks ready to me. That's not to say some people lost their minds over it, but they were obviously outnumbered.

    If policy didn't matter, I'd love to see a black republican elected President soon if for no other reason to once and for all make race a non-issue for being the President of any camp and my extension, any job in America. I hen look what happened. Bonus, my support for him increased the more I believed he was being treated unfairly. By 2012 I was completely disgusted by the GOP culture.

    The presidential electorate, while a part of the power structure, it quite out of the loop in terms of the practical implementation of policy.

    The GOP needs some major work. Conservative ideology has it merits. But the way it is implemented in the Republican party is messed up.

    What does the practical implementation of policy have to do with the question at hand?

    Well, if Obama is an idiot, then we have been "blessed" with 16 years of idiots as presidents. Now it may not affect me as it affect many Americans, but it has affected most in the Western world. My brother in law served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Friends served there too (or family of friends). The economic crash of 2008 has caused unemployment, lower pensions and a lot of government cutbacks.

    Let's hope the next one is not going to be another "idiot". And Yes, that includes Biden (please not him), Ben Carson, Michelle Bachman, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Peter King, Jeff Boss, Howard Dean, George Clooney or Rahm Emanuel.

    Because it demonstrates how effective the President is at implementing his agenda.

    Perhaps you have hit on something here. Maybe the problem is that only an idiot would want the job.

    I am afraid that this may be true, but please, no Santorum. The man is a liar and I have a big dislike against him. People can be anti-euthanasia as they want, but don't lie about it.
