    He is useless, and she would be just as useless, or possibly worse. So it probably doesnt matter which of them is President of The United States.

    No I don't. 

    Hillary would have made a fine President, but the Republicans would have done the same thing to her that they are doing to President Obama.  It is the same thing they did to President Clinton.

    The Citizens United decision was based on a Hillary Clinton-bashing film.  The Republicans are masters at beating down the opposition and the American people, sadly keep the eye on the wrong thing.  President Obama has accomplished more than a sitting President has since Roosevelt. 

    You hold him accountable for the deficit that was $1.3 trillion when he came into office.  It is now $1.5 trillion.  It was $2.6 trillion when Reagan left office.  If it is such a threat, why didn't we fall off the earth then.  It's the debt...which budgets affect minimally.  Just minimal checking would reveal that while Clinton balanced the budget...the debt continued to rise.

    People constantly refer to promises he made along the campaign trail, as if they failed to notice that the country and the world are totally different places.  There also seems to be this idea that he has the authority of a King.  He can't close Guantanamo, if the Congress won't let him.  They legislate remember? 

    The President doesn't create jobs.  Corporations do, still most are too uninformed to recognize that the corporations are holding America hostage for no regulations and  no taxes.  Across the country, the "rights" and wages of working Americans are being dissolved.  Finally, I would wonder how much attention people gave other Presidents.  It seems this one is constantly under a microscope.

    I didn't vote for President Obama, but it would have been nice to see those who did lend a hand in helping their President accomplish what they wanted.  It would be nice to see a little fairplay and some honest characterizations.  It seems to me, if Obama supporters had been as enthusiastic as the Tea Baggers....you would have everything you want.

    Yes, I definitely wish she was president instead of Obama. Even though she's not the best public speaker, Hilary at least holds her ground instead of striving (yet failing) to appease everyone like Obama does.

    What pissed me off the most about Obama is that recently he made the CEO of General Electrics  (which made billions of dollars in profits & pays absolutely NO taxes) the leader of his economic council. Like...wtf.

    No. She is a smart woman. But in all sincerity, look at what the smart, highly-educated, Harvard and Yale types have done to this country - deficits, wars, racial polarization, unemployment, Wall Street, bank bailouts, etc.

    The best President would be someone that has had a failure or two in life, lives modestly, respects people and their differences (as well as their similarities) and has worked a job and/or owned a small business. Also, someone that tells it like it is.

    Man or woman, this type of person is more like the majority of us and would certainly represent us much better than those described in my first paragraph. Of course, in my humble opinion.

    Barrack is doing a good  job and just not getting any credit.  His sttmuls package mght have avoided a depression but people just focus on how expensive it was and how slowly we are coming out of therecession.  But it was not as expensive as the Iraq war.  He inherited so much crap from the previous administration.  Let's give him more time to get the job done.
