What's wrong with President Obama being a super cool dude?
What's wrong with a hot, intelligent president who has smooth late night TV moves and can sing like Al Green? Donald Trump complains that he looks like "the biggest celebrity in the world" or something! News flash: Very few presidents can be super cool dudes and highly intelligent leaders too. http://thehill.com/video/campaign/22424 … -ever-seen
Being a president is more than being cool. If he did more then spend our tax dollars like it was nobody's business, then him being cool wouldn't be an issue. He's hoping him being "cool" will get him the youth vote.
Are you even serious? Can you even mouth the words "He got Bin Laden" or "Job numbers started going up when he took office?" or "He ended 'don't ask don't tell'?" or "He saved General motors"?
He passed the healthcare bill which will put you in jail if you do not have insurance and can not afford a thousand dollar fine.No other president in history has made it a REQUIREMENT to purchase anything.
The lies and misrepresentations keep 'a coming. Where were you when mandatory car insurance, retirement insurance and disability insurance laws were passed by presidents? And I still am not hearing about your side's plan for America.
Best of luck to you mam. You are truly blinded.
"He Got bin Laden." Who cares? "Job numbers started going up..." Whachoo talkin' 'bout, Willis? "He ended 'don't ask, don't tell'," and screwed up the U.S. military as a result. "He saved General Motors." If GM got "saved," the taxpayers did it.
Xenonlit- your thoughts on Obama signing the treaty with Afghanistan saying that starting 2014, we will financially support them? Or did you not hear about this??
2 million jobs LOST under Obie's watch, he saved the UNIONS at General Motors. Their products are rated at the bottom in owner satisfaction. He increased the deficit by 3 trillion dollars, He's only "cool" to mind numb robots. And I thought Bush was bad, This clown is worse.
And this kind of talk is all we hear from your side, which has not come up with one rational solution to anything. Cutting taxes even more for the rich, the war on women, the war on the rest of us, voter disenfranchisement.
Obviously you don't want the truth. All here think he stinks. Sorry about your luck.
You play another race card by claiming that everyone here thinks Obama stinks. I would definitely have nothing to do with this place if that were true. Most just don't attack everyone who doesn't toe the right wing line.
HERE as in your supposed question. You are getting ZERO support. Of course everyone else is wrong and you are right.
Xenonlit, you say Gusser plays "another race card" yet none of us have attacked Obama's race. We have all expressed our concerns with his politics and his policies. It is YOU who is playing the race card by accusing us of being racist. Shame on you!
You are so uninformed and ignorant. Bush was not bad it was CHENEY that IS the devil. You are all idiots if you forgot who got us into this debt. American amnesia at it's best. Obama is going to win again. Romney is out of touch.
Anyone who bases a like or dislike of a president based on his "cool" factor has no credibility with me. I am also not sure why the race thing keeps coming up in the posts. I have not read anything about an attack on any race. Very odd to me.
His race keeps coming up because America is a racist nation and always has been and always will be. What is truly sick is that America is also a liar nation that constantly denies the obvious.
Xenonlit, thank you very much for your service in the U.S. Air Force.
The recession began in August 2008 BEFORE THE ELECTION. The stock market took a dive then...suffering from amnesia? Vote for the guy whose out of touch, just to vote against Obama. I cannot wait for you all to shoot yourselves in the foot.
It's a world wide recession. Europe doesn't blame Bush. Japan doesn't blame Bush, Only Obie and his ilk blame Bush. The other countries are trying to fix things, maybe Obie needs to follow, instead of lead.
The economy collapsed because the Housing Market bubble burst. The Bush Administration tried to investigate Fanny Mae/Freddie Mac in 2004 and was blocked by the Democrats who wrote the "fair" housing laws giving loans to people who couldn't pay.
Any President in office at the time Bin Laden was found had a really simple choice to make: order him to be taken out or bury the fact that he was found at all. Any other choice would be the end of that person's Presidency. Obama didn't get bin Laden, Navy SEALS got bin Laden upon orders from the Department of Defense with the okay from Obama.
He didn't save GM, he saved the unions and purchased a failing company with our money.
He's used our money to fund speculative green energy firms which supported his election and have since gone bankrupt.
Obamacare is based on the concept that the federal government can order you to purchase something you may not wish to purchase.
Job numbers aren't going up! They're using shady counting and hiding the fact that many people have given up looking for work and have fallen off the unemployment lists. Where does that leave them? Oh, on Welfare, thus beholding to the government for their survival.
I don't want or need a President who is cool or loved or appreciated. I want one who is competent for the job, who is loyal to this Nation and its peoples, loves what is great about this Nation, and puts Americans and American Ideals first. (The intent of Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the United States Constitution.)
I want a Leader not an Organizer! I want a Capitalist not a Marxist!
The lies and misrepresentations just 'a keep on coming.
Xenonlit, so if you disagree with it, it is a "lie" and/or a "misrepresentation." Okay, I got it.
EXCUSE ME..it is not called OBAMA CARE, that is a name drummed up by the tea party. It is the affordable care act and anyone that thinks we do not need reform has not been denied care or had a life altering illness.
Right on Jayfort. The truth is a bitter pill to swallow for those committed to doubling down on failure.
@Sistaroots Respectfully, I have to say I've never heard it called anything but ObamaCare so thank you for pointing that out. Thing is, it doesn't matter what name you give it, it is still the same thing.
I don't think he's hot at all, but that's my opinion. I also think that a President should not be slumming on late night television talk shows. It's just not "presidential" to do that and it cheapens the status of the position. Again, that's my opinion. I also believe that whenever the National Anthem is being played that the President of that country should have enough respect for his/her own country to put his/her hand over his/her heart. Again, that's just my opinion. (There's video on YouTube that shows this if you don't believe me.)
How well he's doing depends on one's opinion on unneeded entitlements such as the Obama phone as an example, and world views. There are reasons why Osama Bin Laden had not been assassinated (and that's exactly what that was) previously. Do you honestly think that the most intelligent and strongest military in the world didn't know where he was for all those years? It was the right, safe time to do what needed to be done so the Navy Seals did what they were ordered to do. Obama just gave the order to do it.
As far as the comment on insurance, where is disability and retirement insurance mandatory and who are they mandatory for? Cite your source please because that sounds a bit unbelievable to me. Car insurance is mandatory only IF you own a car and drive it which is a personal choice to do so. People who don't own cars and don't drive aren't forced to buy the insurance for one. With ObamaCare, every citizen in the United States, whether they think they need it or not, will be FORCED to buy a service or be penalized for it. Totally not the same thing or even close.
Personally I think he's one of the worst Presidents we have ever had, but again, that's just my opinion.
She has nothing to say to this, because everything you said was 100% correct.
I wrote a very similar response but yours was much more thought out. I really loved your points and I, as most of the hard working taxpayers in this country, are in total agreement. Now lets hope election time reflects that!
Thank you both. Unfortunately I'm still waiting on the sources to be cited for the claim on mandatory retirement and disability insurance. It irritates me when people state fact that can't be backed up.
It is not called Obama care it is the affordable healthcare act. I have insurance already, so I am fine. I hope it does not get repealed because the ROMNEY WOULD BE A HYPOCRITE. HE PASSED IT IN MASS. YOU NIM WITS.
Did you miss my post above in those comments? Like it said, it doesn't matter what you call it, it's still the same thing. I don't remember saying I like Romney. When did I say I like Romney? Name calling is RUDE & CHILDISH & gets you no wher
"What's wrong with President Obama being a super cool dude?"
In a court of law, that would be designated as a leading question. And in order for an attorney to ask a person sitting on the witness stand such a question, he/she would have to ask the judge for permission to treat that person as a hostile witness.
That said, I was born, raised and spent about half of my adult life in South-Central Los Angeles, and way back in the day when I was a youngster, I was a gang member and a "low rider."
And for the past 30 years, I have been residing in Spanish Harlem, New York City, where I hang out and roll with a whole lot of real hip blacks and Boricuas (Puerto Ricans).
So, because of my history and background, I know "cool" when I see it, and Obama ain't "cool." He's nothing but a lame little home boy who tries to act "cool."
In fact, if Obama were "cool," he would not even be president -- and that is because intelligent and smooth men who are truly "cool" always avoid taking on jobs that they unqualified for.
So that is why Harlem and South Central has so many accomplished Black men? They don't believe that they can qualify for any real man's job? I see. So does Obama. That's why he really doesn't campaign in Harlem and South Central.
Xenonlit, you are really out of the loop. Both Harlem and South-Central Los Angeles are bursting at the seams with well-educated, successful and "accomplished" black and brown men and women -- and many of them are far more "qualified" than Obama is.
You hit it on the head feenix. Usually, the "smoothest" end up in used car sales. Or heading up community groups in Chicago.
That was very well said and the the last part was funny too. Thanks,I needed a laugh!
I just don't like his whole attitude; the way he swaggers. He has to realize that when he stands with his head held high and says, " I was voted the first black president", that was not where his job ended , but where it began. Now it was time to put up or shut up and he hasn't done either. Besides, the words "cool" and "Harvard" cannot be used in the same sentence.
You do not like him because you are a BIGOT. Tell the truth.
Sistaroots, you are coming across as a BIGOT. Isn't everyone entitled to their own opinions? What is with all the name calling- are you not a mature adult? It doesn't seem like you are.
The race card is REALLY getting old, don't you think?
No! And as long as racists can't shut up, I will carry the whole deck, including the jokers.
Super cool, I think, is relative. I believe he's doing these talk shows and singing R&B songs to get the votes of the people who see him and think 'man, that dude's cool, I'm going to vote for him' instead of the ones who take the time to understand the successes and failures of his presidency and his stance on the current issues at hand.
I'm not going to say whether or not I think he is a good president or even a good presidential candidate, mainly because I do not feel like getting attacked in a public forum simply because my beliefs may differ from someone else's. I find that sad and a horrible commentary on our society as a whole. There's no such thing as a 'friendly debate' anymore. Anybody can dig up specific facts to support their theories and ignore the ones that don't. The truth is, many people can no longer agree to disagree anymore. The only opinions that are valid are the ones that agree with their own.
One of the benefits of being super cool is that it comes naturally. President Obama looks like he is trying too hard. Don't get me wrong, I like the guy, but he doesn't need to always be in our face telling us how cool he is.
It is wrong because he is the president. His job is to take care of the our country and all the issues that come with it. That is the most important job there is and it should be taken seriously and with the upmost respect. Obama does not seem to take much about being the leader of a world power very seriously.He is more concerned with golf games, vacations and acting more like a celebrity. I am not sure he really understands or cares about his reponsibilites. If I wanted a movie star to run the country there are a ton of people to choose from in the loony bin we call Hollywood. You are right, few presidents can be super cool dudes and highly intelligent leaders. Obama is neither of these.
Nothing except that that is all he has going for him, besides being a wonderful father and husband. He is smart but his political ideology that is predicated on the government controlling every aspect of society is dangerous and against the principles of Liberty. President Obama is only a super cool dude because his minions in the mainstream media portray him that way so that the mindless idiots who worship celebrities become devoted fans and voters. He's a good guy but very misguided in his interpretation of the constitution and his vision of the future of our great nation.

I just saw the new McG movie, "This Means War", and there's this one recurring joke that I don't understand, so I was hoping someone here can explain to me. In the film, Reese Witherspoon's character says that one draw about Chris Pine's character is that he has small hands. ...

Ever since the President has stepped into office he has been wrong. Its almost as if white people forgot to vote in 2008 and President Obama stole the seat. I would like to take you on a journey over the last four years to put into perspective of how racially divided we have come in the last four...

What is your opinion of President Obama stating that the current Administration scandals are Phony?Does this statement present a distraction to the public? Does it show that the President has little concern for the truth? Does it echo the same illogical rhetoric as that used to hide...
