U.S. Politics: Time for change...

Updated on June 15, 2015

The Presidents Own Words

President Obama- Two Term President

Obama said, "I would rather be a real good one term president, then a mediocre two term president."

In term one, he got us out of Iraq and prepared us to leave Afghanistan.

According to a Republican on the Veterans Commission, who said he didn't agree on much with Obama, but he had to praise him what he has done for America's veterans. He said that President Obama has done more for our veterans than any president in history.

He passed a health care reform bill and the most important. He refocused on going after Bin Laden, who began the war and captured and executed the man. All of it, despite all the road blocks.

History will give this president his honor, because today's divisiveness will not allow Americans to openly praise his accomplishments for fear of retribution.

The "one term" band wagon

Several months before the election of 2012, Newt Gingrich tried to kick off the "one-term" president rally cry and it pretty much went nowhere.

Then they called in the big guns, Donald Trump. When Bush lost control of Congress, did they say, "he's done." This was big business getting involved in some distractions of their own. If big business didn't and don't want President Obama in office, he must be doing something right.

Obama supporters came out in droves in November to show the Tea Party - Republicans that he has the support he needs to keep on doing what's best for America.

SPENDING IS UP

With unemployment down and the housing market showing some good numbers. The second part of the health care bill taking effect and with spending up. The country is slowly moving in the right direction.

What is the GOP doing today--- you don't hear them spreading their "agenda" for repealing "Obama Care" anymore.

Republicans know what's unpopular among Americans and what the party wants by repealing Obama Care, won't jive with the American people.

  • They don't want coverage for children under 19 for pre-existing conditions?
  • They don't want to extend the age to 26 for child coverage on your policy to help get your children through college without the added expense to your pocket book or theirs?
  • They don't want to keep doctors from charging you a co-payment when you do in for preventive care like mammograms, gynecology exams, etc?
  • They don't want you to save money on hospital and medical costs because you've reached your "limit" of coverage. The want to keep limits and have you drown in medical bills?


2012 CANDIDATES

Do you believe President Obama has done a good job?

See results

Haters....

It is obvious by his election to a second term, that the American people saw the country moving in a positive direction and decided not to rock the boat. So why all the hating? Some of the comments have been downright racist and hateful. Sadly showing that racism is alive and well in America.

Had the Republican party felt that they could do better, they would have rallied around one of their own and elected a different president in 2012.

Haters said the president did not' have the backbone to do what was needed, he proved them wrong with Bin Laden, military programs, social security and yet still, not a single word of support. It is obvious that these people are racists and would say the same if another black president were voted in to office.

    No one wants to crush big business, we just don't want big business dictating what the middle class is suppose to do. Maybe you have forgotten, that Bush had Walmart writing policy ideas for the Republcians. I heard an enteresting conversation on the radio this morning. Since the 1970's, wealth has shifted so much so, that the middle-class and poor have dropped and instead of "wealth" being predominately equal (large scale blue collar workers), the wealth is now in the upper half (CEO-Corporate types). So, much of an equal America. It's that mentality that will see us as a third world country.

    There's an old saying, "If you want to live like a Republican, vote for a Democrat."

    Certainly he said this! He is about ideology and not what is best for America! You are speaking to an empty room! There are but a handful of people left to support him! So you think if big business hates him he must be doing something right? ........So when we finaly crush bug business where does that leave America??? I only see a third world country? what do you see?
