Each rocketed onto the national political stage with powerful speeches and became commander-in-chief without any military experience."

    Well I thought Lincoln was a terrible President, but if you are talking about his effectiveness in getting what he wanted done, the comparison would be a compliment.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    That is yet to be seen by his remaining 5 years in office, but it is clear that he has equal or better qualifications to become as great as Lincoln did!

    Lincoln wasn't great. If Obama is anything like Lincoln was, he will be one of the most hated Presidents in the history of the United States of America.

    Given your views, I'm not at all surprised you don't agree with the majority that consider him one of our greatest presidents.

    Considering he was talking about experience before either took office, your rather lame comeback fails pretty badly.

    i respectfully disagree disneydude. before people blame Nader they should blame the millions of people who voted for Bush. they are responsible for giving you GWB. they should also blame Gore. at the end of the day, ultimately it was Gores election to win or lose. blame those individuals who stopped the recounts that would have solved the problem.

    every third party candidate on the Florida ballot, and there were quite a few, received more votes than was the difference between Gore and Bush. so why is no one blaming Buchanan for stealing the election? or the libertarians? or any of the other third party candidates.

    Bush won by 537 votes. only the write ins had less than that.

    George W. Bush Richard Cheney Republican 2,912,790 48.85% 25
    Albert Gore Jr. Joseph Lieberman Democratic 2,912,253 48.84% 0
    Ralph Nader Winona LaDuke Green 97,488 1.63% 0
    Patrick Buchanan Ezola Foster Reform 17,484 0.29% 0
    Harry Browne Art Olivier Libertarian 16,415 0.28% 0
    John Hagelin A. Nat. Goldhaber Natural Law 2,281 0.04% 0
    Monica Moorehead Gloria La Riva World Workers 1,804 0.03% 0
    Howard Phillips J. Curtis Frazier Constitution 1,371 0.02% 0
    David McReynolds Mary Cal Hollis Socialist 622 0.01% 0
    James Harris Margaret Trowe Soc. Workers 562 0.01% 0
    Write-ins - - 40 0.00%
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    I am on the fence at this point. He has done many good things, but he has also dissappointed me in grave ways as well.

    What about you, my fellow bleeding heart? Will you vote for him?
    No.

    I strongly disagree with the majority of President Obama's policies.

    Re: Will You Vote for Obama?

    I voted I don't know because I want to see who the republican candidate is.. Things are looking pretty bad for the repubs at the moment.. Romney appears to be the only viable candidate they have.. If that is so, then Obama will get my vote..

    Don't start on the 2000 election.. Bush lost.. His brother helped him..

    In 2000, a clear majority of Americans voted for Al Gore. But the winner is determined by the Electoral College, so the winner in each state must be considered. The vote in Florida was so close that it took a month to declare a winner. Before Florida was declared, Gore led in the Electoral College with 266 votes to Bush's 246 votes. When Bush was declared the winner of Florida by 537 votes, he picked up 25 Electoral College votes which gave him the Presidency.
    But Bush only won Florida because of poorly designed butterfly ballots that stole votes from Gore, and because his Florida campaign manager Republican Secretary of State Kathleen Harris and Governor Jeb Bush illegally removed 57,700 voters from the rolls. It is estimated that 90% of them were Democratic. So this represent thousands of votes stolen from Al Gore. If this crime had not been commited then Gore would be President.

    No matter what we believe about who really won, we must admit that the election was very close. So one would expect that Bush would respect the opinions and desires of the clear majority of Americans who voted for Gore and Nader. Yet Bush charges ahead, promoting a far right agenda that is repugnant to most Americans, as if he had a mandate from the voters.
    3/12/01 - CNN reports that the confusing butterfly ballot used in Florida's Palm Beach County cost Gore 6,607 votes. This means that Gore actually beat Bush in Florida by 6,070 votes. Thus Gore won BOTH the popular vote and, by rights, the Electoral College vote. It is time for Mr. Bush to step down and for the rightfully elected President Gore to take office.

    CNN.com - Newspaper: Butterfly ballot cost Gore White House - March 11, 2001

    And them voting machines that didn't give reciepts helped him win again in 2004.. Bush even pressured Ridge to use the theat level to manipulate the election..

    Uh-oh: Ridge says Bush WH pressured him to raise terror threat levels for re-election Hot Air

    So in all seriousness.. Bush will go down in history as the only president to serve two terms but was never elected..

    The Campaign has begun folks!


    Barack Obama 2012 Campaign Launch Video



    Obama For America 2012 - Are You In?:

    "The politics we believe in starts not with expensive TV ads or extravaganzas, but with you — with people organizing block-by-block, talking to neighbors, co-workers and friends.

    And that kind of campaign takes time to build. So even though the race may not reach full speed for a year or more, the work of laying the foundation for our campaign must start today.

    In the coming days, supporters like you will begin forging a new organization that we'll build together in cities and towns across the country. And we'll need you to help shape our plan as we create a campaign that's farther reaching, more focused, and more innovative than anything we've built before.

    We'll start by doing something unprecedented: coordinating millions of one-on-one conversations between supporters across every single state, reconnecting old friends, inspiring new ones to join the cause, and readying ourselves for next year's fight."
