    He wishes to violate the right to liberty by telling us what energy we can use, how much we can use and how much we pay for it.
    He wishes to violate the right to pursue happiness by taking as much wealth as an individual builds to redistribute it in his image.

    Those "specific generalizations" are why I feel that he's unAmerican.
    You could find a "violation" of any of those for pretty much all presidents. Any president who signs or resigns the patriot act is in direct violation of at least two.

    Damn, you spent two whole minutes on that answer. I'm glad you didn't rush to any conclusions. Unfortunately he is American, too bad he isn't President of China. We'd be better off.

    Prior bastardization does not equal proper behavior today.

    True, nothing excuses it. However, standards change slowly and we won't be going from the status quo anytime soon.

    In other words, people won't do nothing 'til da stuff hitz da fan.

    OK, I think that next American president should be a woman, and then an Asian.

    Yes, he is an American born and bread here in the U.S.

    No, he's not a Comunist, Socialist, Nationalist.

    He's not telling people how to live their lives.

    He hasn't placed any U.S. industry under direct government control.

    He hasn't purchased any U.S. company that is 100% government owned and operated.

    TARP was enacted by G.W. Bush.

    The PPACA provides plenty of room for States to formulate health insurance exchanges as they see fit as long as they meet the minimum criteria under the law. States can go above the minimum criteria all they want, but they can't go below the standard requirements. That's true for any federal law.

    He hasn't taken away anyone's rights or infringed upon their "freedom" to do today what they couldn't do 2.5 yrs ago. If anything, G.W. Bush intruded on our freedom far more than President Obama has. Mandating that every should have health insurance...?...please. If you're employed and already have employer-sponsored health insurance or a health savings account, you have nothing to worry about. That covers more than 90% of Americans. Frankly, I really don't see the problem. But that's another issue.

    He's an American citizen. 'Nuf said.
