Do you think our president has genuinely tried to help our country?

    Wild rumors fly during campaign time, and one of them is that Obama has an anti-American agenda that he has actively pursued and in the process has hurt our country. What do you think?

      I think not. The man has done a job that I would not ever want.  He has had to fight Congress for just about everything.  Overall, he has done well... my opinion, and yes, genuinely tried to help our country.

        The "I think not" was in response to the second part of your question about the anti-American agenda.

        Let me clarify; I am not stating my beliefs, I am simply asking the question. And I dont believe that there are any dumb or stupid questions. Only dumb and stupid answers.

          Disagreeing with the president is one thing. Claiming or asking whether he has an "anti-American agenda" is ridiculous. "Agenda" is a trite expression used by evangelical extremists and Tea Baggers--as in the "homosexual agenda," the "pro-abortion agenda" or the "socialist agenda." It's a give-away of where you are coming from.

            I would characterize "agenda" as having goals in mind that one works toward. The goals are the operative word, not the agenda. College courses have agendas, city council meetings have agendas; I would even be willing to bet that you have an agenda in mind when it comes to politics. Why shouldn't our president have one?

            There are many, many Americans who believe Obama would like America to be more like Europe, less "American". More socialist. Less freedom of individual choice, which is an American ideal. Just so we're clear, that's what I mean by anti-American. Not that he hates America or is trying to destroy America, although, many Americans believe that, as well. Do I think he has an agenda? I would hope so, and I would hope that his ultimate goals are in line with what Americans want, what Americans stand for. Next time,Ralph, just ask nicely if you want me to give the motivations behind my questions away, I'll be glad to expound.

              Yes, I'm aware of the many, many Americans who are victims of Tea Party and other propaganda vilifying President Obama. They are wrong.

      I don't know what you even mean by an "anti-American" agenda.  I'll just take it as the person who proposes the view claims that Obama wants to bring the U.S. to destruction. 

      That is clearly not the case, nor was it the case with Bush.  Most of these politicians believe they are doing what is right for the country.  There may be snags along the way, like backroom deals, but they believe their overall goal for America is the way things SHOULD be. 

      There can be unintentional harm, but I would not suggest most politicians from the right or left are intentionally harming America.

        You need to Think again. Republican politicians have no morals, values, sense of decency or patriotism. They try to distract you from these facts by attacking Obama and trying to lay the blame on him. The Republicans led us into war on a lie.  The republicans cut taxes for the rich and bankrupted our Country. The Republicans were willing let our car industry fail, and they tried to run us off a cliff by refusing to raise the dept ceiling. So, just think about it.  I'm sure you will figure who really has a Anti-American agenda for this Country.
        By the way! they don't even play by their own rules!  The Southern Republicans are already trying to fix the election down in Georgia!

          As a liberal, I agree with your analysis of the Republican party.  I just differ that they are INTENTIONAL about it.  Bush had economists who work at Harvard advising him on the tax cuts for the rich.  These people honestly believe what they say. 

          There are some politicians that don't give a crap.  Reducing environmental regulations so the company you previously worked for can massively increase profits at the expense of people's health is immoral and intentional.  But many conservative politicians wrongly believe that environmental regulations are not actually doing much good.  It's hard to argue with delusion. 

          I think it's more of the fact that people are misinformed and believe certain immoral policies are actually good ideas.  The road to hell is paved with good intentions!

      Of course he isn't trying to harm the country he is the leader of, no politician ever does, they may think there are different ways of making a country better but people who believe that anyone on either side is actually setting out to harm the country are simple minded at best.

        Obama has 1. Averted a deep recession or depression, 2. Ended the war in Iraq, 3. Signed a health care reform bill that has been a goal of every president since Truman, 4. Authorized the successful killing of Bin Laden without the loss of a single life except Bin Laden's, 5. Ended don't ask don't tell as he promised, 6. Signed badly needed banking regulatory reforms, 7. Saved GM and Chrysler and an estimated one million American jobs, 8. Established a consumer protection agency which is working on eliminating the worst abuses of consumers by credit cards, loan sharks, banks, et al. Disagree if you will but accusing him of an anti-America "agenda" is blind partisan nonsense. Last night my local Democrat club meeting was invaded by three Lyndon LaRouche representatives one of whom, Bill Roberts, is running for Congress against a GOP incumbent, Thaddeus McCotter. Some of his proposals reminded me of Ron Paul's wild ideas--abolish the Fed, return to the gold standard,etc. He also proposed to impeach Obama whom he likened to Adolf Hitler. Maybe you should check out your local LaRoucheYouth chapter.

          1) no he hasn't. He's caused a future catastrophe that you will eventually call the fault of a Republican.

          I thought you thought that the Fed and the Presidency were separate!!?? ... Slip of the tongue?

          2) The war in Iraq is still going on - it's amazing that people believe it's over when we have a few thousands privately contracted military men there.

          I guess it's easy to believe what you want...

          3) Health care bill?! You're HAPPY about that?! "BUY HEALTH CARE OR BE TAXED"

          My state nullified it. It was an atrocious usurpation of freedom.  It's disgusting that you support it.

          4) What's that? Obama invaded Pakistan?

          5) DOTA: yeah, that's actually a good one.

          6) Banking regulation means nothing when the banks can print money without the threat of a bank run.

          7) GM and Chrysler were failed companies that didn't need to be bailed out. Other companies would have gratefully bought them and turned them into profitable enterprises again.

          You don't trust anyone but the corrupted.

          8) loaning out money should be legal. I fail to see why "agreeing to pay money" should be illegal in any situation. Just another loss of freedom.

          ... what's that, one out of eight?

          I never called him anti-american. I called him a tyrant. He is. And your points prove it.

          Thanks for the tip: I have been thinking more and more about trying to run for a local office. I'll have to see how to do it and all that. Apparently an astonishing number of Ron Paul fans have infiltrated the Republican party in local and state arenas.

          However, let me promise you that I will call ANY tyrant a tyrant. Bush, Clinton, Bush Sr., Reagan, and almost everyone down the list has been instrumental to abolishing freedom.

          La Rouche has likened every POTUS since Nixon to Adolph Hitler. It's his MO and all his blind followers toe the line to a nauseating extent. And if you have never read any of the books this man prints from time to time you are wayy missing out. I liken them to a 5th grader trying to write a term paper on transnational business negotiations. Even Gore Vidal has never assigned his name to something so poorly written.

              I agree Ralph. But if Ron Paul is elected, (a massive if), La Rouche will compare him to Hitler as well. And probably without recognizing the limitless number of neonazi groups and other white supremacists that have repeatedly endorsed Paul.

      He has had record $1.+ trillion dollar deficits for each of the past three years.
      He has spent money we don't have all the way through 2017.
      He has troops in Pakistan. Illegal.
      He participated in a little war in Libya. You might have heard about it.
      He has not helped with domestic oil production. The Keystone Pipeline does not need his signature.
      He has cut back on drilling permits.
      He jumps into the media dog pile if a black person is offended, wounded or killed - but ignores similar stories about whites. It's a little bit disgusting, but he needs a lot of attention.
      He has weakened foreign relations.
      He has bowed to foreign kings.
      He has accepted foreign campaign funds. It's just a little illegal.
      He has a record number of czars that are accountable to no one.
      He spent 10 months in office before he ever met with the Joint Chiefs.
      He followed the Bush exit strategy on Iraq and shame on him for taking any credit.
      He promised to close GITMO - but has kept it open.
      He promised to end the Patriot Act - but keeps extending it.

      I could go on, but it won't change the conversation.

      I find it amusing how this conversation gets off track with attacks on Bush, the Tea Party, Right Wingers, Tea Baggers, Rush Limbaugh,the GOP candidates, etc.

      Don't confuse results with vague references to effort.  We have a federal government that is out of control in terms of both activities and spending.  Obama has done nothing to throttle either one. The spending continues and the government has grown by a factor of 17% in his first three years in office.  The socialist agenda is alive and well and we are well on our way to bankruptcy as a nation.  Any president who truly cared for the people of this country would not continue down that road for another day.  The fact of the matter is, Obama cares about only himself and his agenda regardless of the needs or wants of America. That is the way it is and the way it is going to be as long as he occupies the White House. WB

    I often wonder if an average American remembers what they were taught in Civics class or American History. There are 3 branches of power within our government. It may help to pay attention to what each branch does or doesn't accomplish. To blame everything on a president is ignorance. He has accomplished more than he gets credit for.

    Without a doubt he looks out for the average American. Many would say he has a socialist agenda. If you believe that, we would need to get rid of social security, medicaid, medicare, disability, unemployment compensation and the list goes on. I don't see where Romney's newest statement to get rid of planned parenthood programs is going to help women. And it seems many of his party are on his side. In my opinion, if we travel down that road and eliminate the programs suggested, this country will be going backwards!

    I don't believe Obama is trying to destroy the US, even though I don't agree with some of his policies and views. It's hard for me to believe that anyone wanting to serve as POTUS would not love the country. It's a terrible job, and I certainly wouldn't want it.

    You might be surprised, however, at how many people actually believe Obama came into power with the sole goal of destroying America. Here in the South, I hear it all the time, even from educated people who should know better. I can't tell you how many times I've argued this point with such people.

    Yes, keep blaming all Obama's 'failures' (successes from his point of view) on Republicans and congress. On many actions he has bypassed congress simply because they fit the United Nations' regulations. He is by definition a dictator, so anything put through congress is simply ceremonial. At some point you Dems are going to have to admit that Obama is not the saviour you thought he was going to be.

      Nobody thinks anyone is a messiah. Just who can best represent your values, that's all.

    The GOP candidates so far consists of Romney, Santorum, Gingrich and of course, last but not least, Ron Paul. You know these guys are candidates for the wrong event. They need to be competing for the title of "The Biggest Loser" (and it doesn't have anything to do for weight loss). Romney and Santorum won’t rest until  this country transforms into a church-state and they don’t have the balls to stand up to Limbaugh. If they can’t stand up to some assh**e on the radio, how would they stand up to the idiots in the Middle East and North Korea? Romney is way out of tough with the working class and Santorum wants to make porn illegal and believes that sex should be banned unless conceiving a child. I’m not going to get into their anti-women beliefs. Then there’s the moon god, Gingrich who’s busy planning his victory party for when he somehow wins the nomination.  Then what about Ron Paul? Hmmm, what about him?

    Do you think our president has genuinely tried to help our country?
    1. Do I think? Yes. I do think and I thought about my answer here so as not to reflexively hit "submit" with a knee-jerk response.
    2. our president -- as stated in previous posts, let's all remember that Obama is the POTUS. We elected him to the position (putting our faith in him as our leader) so a majority of us must have believed in him in 2008
    3. has genuinely -- I believe Obama's heart is in the right place but there is very little in Washington, DC that is "genuine" and he is finding that out, as all other presidents before him have found out. It's not a monarchy
    4. tried -- he has tried. Not all of what he has wanted to do has succeeded. He has been blocked by a Republican led Congress intent on making him a one-term president. I think some of his earlier attempts were not forceful enough. He's hitting his stride now though and no longer trying to negotiate with terrorists (Congress)
    4. To help -- help is a good word. He cannot "fix" our problems. Just try to make them better. And he did inherit a quagmire and it could have been much worse had he not been at the helm. Help in the context of the years 2009-present means actually harm reduction in some respects
    5. Our country -- unforunately our country is more divided now than at any time since the Civil War. Our country as I see it is helped by Obama. I think he's smart and level-headed. He does not want to see our country completely run by corporations and greedy bankers. The USA that I know and love IS not only helped but improved by President Obama.

    As a non-partisan, voter of ideas and not necessarily strict party lines, I think relentlessly "Pursing & Physically Extracting" the "Body & Soul" of Bin Laden and countless other cohorts from this good Earth's very fabric as President Obama and our exemplary special forces did, is indeed nothing less than quite patriotic - undeniably an overt display of character and national loyalty - As if he really needed to prove it -

    I also think supporting an unprecedented yet essential U.S. Government limited partnership with Detroit to save tens of millions of jobs and paychecks for our American Auto Workers was also no less than an extraordinary act of confidence and compassion for our nation as a whole - Both of these items were expressed quite eloquently by another commenter prior to this post but I just wanted to embellish somewhat  -

    If there were "Ready, Willing, & Able" buyers of troubled auto companies prior to our partnership consumation, why didn't they simply step up to the plate and purchase them? The stocks were trading at a significant discount factoring in eminent bankruptcy, but where were all the buyers? Liquidity problems perhaps? A simple correspondence to the White House from any number of "Willing & Able" entities expressing an interest to acquire one or all via letter of intent would have worked -

    Unfortunately, at that precise moment in time, everything, including available financing was all frozen up tighter than that helpless little moose Sarah "whacked" two nights before it all started - So there were not to be any knight in shining armor acquisitions despite the green light special pricing but plenty of tasty sliced moose sandwiches on rye to go around -

    I'm not defending the Presidents oversight, even though I believe he will eventually be documented as one of our greatest ever, but I'm confident we did the absolute right thing at precisely the right time -

    If some irrationals are questioning President Obama's Patriotism, where does that leave quasi catatonic conservative leaders like Rush Limbaugh?

    Oly,
    Let's leave party labels out of this for just a minute and examine what you said.
    You admit you are senior on Social Security. You demanded a cost of living adjustment (COLA) in the face of an economy that is the worst since the Great Depression. But YOU are entitled to more money from the government.
    As a senior, I assume you also receive Medicare health care benefits.
    Which are another government funded program.
    Yet you can sit here and deny those of us who are still working, who don't know if we will ever be able to retire, the same basic services that you not only enjoy but fight for?
    Why should the government pay for your health care and not mine? I'm a taxpaying citizen. I'm a member of the beleaguered middle class -- the one that's paying for both ends to keep what they have (poor and rich).
    Why should I continue to work to pay into a Social Security system that won't be there for me when (if) I stop working at 65 or 67 or 80, which is probably the age it will be at when I get there.
    Surely you would not volunteer to give up yours -- which, given how broke you claim our country is, would be the patriotic thing to do.
    Do you not see the inherent hypocricy in what you are saying?

    From what you say here you represent the "I got mine and that's all that I care about." lol

    NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report) – With a fall presidential contest between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney seeming increasingly likely, America’s bigots are finding themselves in a quandary over which candidate to support, prominent bigots confirmed today.

    Across the U.S., voters who describe themselves as bigots are complaining that a first-ever matchup between a Black man and a Mormon, while historic, is forcing them to ask a difficult question: which group do they hate more?

    “I’ve always seen myself as pretty versatile, bigotry-wise,” said Herb Torlinson, a hardware salesman from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. “But I guess this is going to be an election that really puts my different hates to the test.”

    At the Clapboard Corner Café in Youngstown, Ohio, a group of bigots who gather for breakfast once a week to discuss their dislike of various racial and religious groups echoed Mr. Torlinson’s sentiments.

    “I actually cried when Rick Perry dropped out of the race,” said David Colehurn, a disgruntled hater who works at a nearby Pep Boys. “He may be brain-damaged and all, but at least he’s White and Christian.”

    Mr. Colehurn said that his bigotry towards both Black people and Mormons was making him entertain thoughts of voting for a third-party candidate, but that he was “turned off” by the possibility of a bid from Texas congressman Ron Paul: “I hate old people.”

    In other political news, former Sen. Rick Santorum revealed that he made his first sweater vest himself when he tore off the sleeves of his straitjacket.

      And so the circus, goes on. Don't forget, IF, we make it to November 6, 2012.

      Everybody is so dumbfounded and striking out at what ever, never thought I would be around to see the mess we are in at this time.

      No point getting into Politics, so I won't.

      Do you think the people will ever get over this Black and White, Issue.

      Right now, all we need is the right person to get us back on track.

      Who might that be, I have no answer.

      Our Media is trying to Scare the heck out of us.

      Our Government is Broken.

      Our Congress is not one, Of The People, By The People, and, For The People, anymore.

      Our Senate, no longer can make a decision on anything.

      Think that pretty much sums it up.

      Hope we are still around in November, to see just how this plays out.

      List of Barack Obama Lies…..and they keep coming!

      Below is a list of Obama’s documented lies so far with the most recent lies first.

      Lies During Third Year

      I’ve done more for Israel’s security than any President ever Obama aided Islamic Extremists take over of Egypt/ Libya – Weapons pour into Gaza

      Virtually every Senate Republican voted against the tax cut last week Examiner

      “Every idea that we’ve put forward are ones that traditionally have been supported by Democrats and Republicans alike.” Like Raising taxes?

      Obama met highly qualified out of work teacher Robert Baroz He wasn’t out of work and Obama never met him.

      GOP Responsible for Obama Jobs Bill Not Passing Dems Rejected Jobs Bill

      You have 80 percent of the American people who support a balanced approach. Eighty percent of the American people support an approach that includes revenues and includes cuts. So the notion that somehow the American people aren’t sold is not the problem Gallup Poll: Only 69%

      These are obligations that the United States has taken on in the past. Congress has run up the credit card, and we now have an obligation to pay our bills. Looks like it’s been incurred mostly in the years of Obama

      Jobs Bill Paid for Seems not so much Paid for

      Then you’ve got their(GOP)which is dirtier air, dirtier water, less people with health insurance Barack Obama, campaiging in Asheville, NC, 10/17/11

      I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it. American.com

    "The problem, of course, is that Fox News, the organization now under assault around the world for wiretapping, blackmail and bribery, is extremely pro-Netanyahu and owned by Rupert Murdoch, an Israeli Likudist masquerading as an Australian.

    Worse still is the gang of GOP candidates, the presidency, congress, dog catcher, each crazier than the last, all swearing, not support or allegiance to Israel but slavery to the extremist policies of the Netanyahu regime.

    Because of this many Americans such as former Vice President Dick Cheney are unable to travel as they face war crimes tribunals, face arrest around the world.  They said they were helping Israel and, instead, got into bed with financial criminals, committed innumerable war crimes and partnered with Netanyahu in building what was seen as a world safe for “Zionism,” one filled with war, poverty, corruption and hate."

    "Paul Volcker sounded off on critics of President Obama in an interview with CBS's Anthony Mason.

    Asked whether he agrees with accusations that the president is waging class warfare by pushing for Wall Street reforms and higher taxes for the rich, Volcker said, "I don't understand the depth of that feeling. I really don't. This business that he's a great socialist and out to undermine the free enterprise system and so forth, I just think it has no connection with reality."

    He balked at the notion that Obama could have taken office without going after the banks.

    "How could you have a President of the United States taking office in the midst of a financial crisis and a deep recession and not be critical of the financial system? He would have been deaf, dumb and blind," he said.

    Volcker, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve and Obama adviser, is the namesake for "the Volcker Rule," a major provision in the Wall Street reforms that could take effect as early as this July.

    Though Obama has been critical of Wall Street, a survey from the end of last year found that he had approved fewer regulations than President Bush had at the same point in his presidency.

    As HuffPost's Jen Bendery reports, Wall Street executives actually thrive under President Obama. Still, most major Wall Street donations are heading to Mitt Romney, who is perceived as much friendlier to banks."

    "In the past 50 years, women have banded together to build the most important thing, which is to tell the truth about what's happening to them. Because of that, we have changed a lot of laws and change is built from the bottom up, like a house, not from the top down. But you need someone at the top who allows you to build a house in the first place, and that's President Obama."

    "From his personal life, who he married, how he treats his daughters, he understands that women are absolutely full human beings," she says. "He has a good heart, a good mind, treats people with dignity, doesn't court conflict and represents I think the best in this country."

    The spot goes on to remind women that Obama's first act as president was to sign the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which made it easier for women to sue for equal wages.

    Steinem also touts the Affordable Care Act, which will go before the U.S. Supreme Court this week, noting that it has extended coverage to young adults and would eliminate a gender gap that sees women pay more for health insurance than men. She also references the current controversies over abortion rights and contraception coverage, both issues that were thought to have been settled decades ago.

    "If you've listened to the Republican candidates in the primary, you know that each and every one of them would criminalize abortion and outlaw quite a few forms of birth control," she says. "Whether or not women can determine when and whether to have children is the single biggest element in whether we're healthy or not, whether we're educated or not, what our life expectancy is, whether we can be active in the world or not."

      He was in office less than a month when he overturned the Mexico City Policy. So now the US is back to funding international abortions. He actually signed this a week before he signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

        I'm SO glad he did that! Women have the right to determine their own lives. Period. Over the church AND the gvt!

        Regan was using gvt to silence them, and forced them to bend to the will of the church, as all today's Cons seek to do, IMO.

        Obama is pro-life, because he want to help the LIVING...those who are here. The Cult of death LOVES murder---just as long as they determine who gets it.

    Nicely explained:

    "I think one has to understand that this is about more than demographics: it is about fundamental social change and the reaction to it. And the fundamental changes at stake and at issue are mostly about rights, the rights won by submerged and subordinate groups roughly between 1954 and 1973, and the privileges and powers lost or limited, or perceived to be lost, by those who benefited, however unjustly, from the subordination of others"---Ira Glasser

    JSCHAMS;  Is it so hard for you to believe that there are people out there like me who actually can think for themselves?  You assume propaganda is what made my mind up...you couldn't be more wrong.  I looked at the tons of hate filled emails I got every day, the horrible things people said and did, such as the sign about "re nig"...it's not too much of a leap to figure out that race plays a VERY big part in why people feel about Obama as they do.  I have never seen so much hatred towards a sitting President in my entire life.  It was there before he ever took office, and it persists to this day.  He's a good man...not a perfect man.  He has done a lot of good for this country, and his intentions are honorable.  Proof of this is that the only the hate mongers can deal with him is to try and discredit his religion, his birth certificate and any mistake he's ever made.  It's sickening and it makes me ashamed of the people in this country who are so ignorant that they cannot even see who he really is.
