    Just because you voted for president Obama, doesn't make you a bad person, everyone believed that he was gonna 'CHANGE THE WORLD" also in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, yet, Obama is RUINING THE WORLD. No Good changes have been made or set in force by this administration. It is time to recognize our mistakes, be good little boys and girls accept the mistakes we made in move on to fix the problem. President Obama needs to be impeached. Until then , he will continue to think we are stupid. WE ARE NOT STUPID, just a little shell shocked. Come on America Lets Go.

      I see we are going to have a problem with you and thread the forum.

      As I've already stated in your other pathetic forum is that YOU are not helping solve any problem with your rants. It would be nice, if you were more constructive in helping fix the problem, instead of being an annoyance.

      Now, how you take criticism is going to prove to be intersting, I am sure. How ever, since you have a disagreement with the President of the United States, then I suggest you talk or write to your Congress person of your district and make noise that way. The FACT that you're in a public forum SCREAMING bad Obama....I suggest you take your focus energy and point it into a safe direction and a more positive humanizing task.

      You might actually learn how to be a better human being and even learn a thing or two. You are a prime example of someone who screams the most to be heard, because their needs are being met. Well, get on board to what's called Life.

      If your needs are not being met, then I suggest you try and fix it, instead of yelling about something the President of the United States has or has not accomplished in his first year in office.

      Seriously, if you want to rant, go ahead a rant, and at every turn I will defend the President of the United States, simply on the basis, he is trying to do something, BUT it's BUSINESS who has control. He's up against that- so back off.

      If you really knew what was going on in this Country, you wouldn't be blaming the President, because it's not his fault in the first place.

        You obviously misinterrpreted what I meant. I am simply and unemployed American (like many) married to man that has a state certified building contractor license that we might as well us it to start a fire with. We are going to loose our house, loose everything we have worked so hard to attain w/o the help of one person. The president made many promises prior to his inaugeration, promises that have not been kept and have actually gone in the opposite direction. NO, I am not going to be an annoyance as you say.Im just a very unhappy American looking to talk with other people who may feel the same way I do.

      The problem is you and people like you think everybody else is stupid. You make statements that are completely false and you think everybody else is stupid enough to believe you or too stupid to check your "facts". You haven't caught on to the fact that your worst nightmare came true. You are addressing a thinking public now. The stupid people you are trying to address is shrinking. The right wing is melting away like the Wicked Witch of the West. The few of you that persist I just have no words for. I dont know if it is sad, scary, or funny.

      If Bush had only been impeached 2 years before he sent the USA to the brink of bankruptcy and to the bottom of the foodchain, you may not have a need to bother with this post.

      The world view is that Obama is the best thing that happened to the USA for a long time.  It's the small vocal minority in the US who has no idea they are looked upon as STUPID for allowing Bush back in and RUINING THE USA.

      Make sure you stop shopping at Walmart in the same breath you write your next comment.

      I didn't vote for him so I didn't make a mistake. I agree with you though, virtually everything he's done has been wrong for America and what he proposes will continue to inflict pain upon the middle class and the economy, which I believe should be his focus.

        I would be content in having ONE president that did what they said they would do. Just because I am unhappy w/ the current president doesn't mean I was happy with Bush.

    If the election of Obama was a mistake, it is only one of countless 'mistakes' Americans have made during the past 4 or 5 decades.. and odds are we'll continue making mistakes.

      You better be prepared to take the blame too. Because, as a citizen- you are to blame. You voted- ? If you did then you're to blame, just as much as anyone else who casted a ballot.

      You keep electing fool after fool, after fool, you get a fool result, screwed up.

      One might have asked the question of the liberal left wing who still to this day claim that Bush stole his first term in office. It's a simple matter, really. When people don't like the outcome, however fair, they tend to discount it.

    Most of the world admire and respect Obama. We get decent news coverage here, mostly facts. I watch American Television and think "How can anyone believe this tripe?
    America is it's own worst enemy. You get a moderate intelligent young president and all you want to do is knock him down so that your party is "right."
    How bloody childish and churlish can you get?

  8. Mark Knowles profile image60
    Mark Knowlesposted 8 years ago

    Not often I disagree with you Ernest - but Obama is merely continuing to do the same as his predecessor. No change here. Plus  very few Americans give a shit about foreign perception. Most of them never leave the country.

    Still - the powers that be just want us fighting amongst ourselves - which is easy to make happen.

    It is rather funny the amount of people who were anti-Obama because of his proposals - are now anti-Obama because he did not do what he said he was going to.

    Gawd - we are stupid.. sad

      We are a little population of 20 Million and looking from here and measuring ourselves against America (a local passtime) we do not expect a large economy like the US to turn around quickly, nor do we see Obama as some sort of god power as president.
      He has to find his way through, he can't just tip the whole bottle out and start again, although I wish he would get a start in treasury. We are not satisfied, that would be another matter, but we are less afraid, and can recognize that he is not the fool portrayed here! smile

        He is not a fool. He did lie to America and will not make the changes promised. He has done exactly what I expected him to do. The same as Bush was doing. He will leave office a very wealthy man. wink

      The President doesn't really care what we think. Even though majority voted him into office. This is how he repays those that did, by not listening to concern.

      They didn't lie to get elected. Not to the degree Obama did anyway. Just because Obama played the game well doesn't mean he won. His popularity is dwindling.
