    Can the President overcome first term struggles or will it lead to his down fall in 2012?

      He should be impeached, and (insert horrible thing), as well as all but about 200 members of congress for supporting the NDAA.

    Put it this way- anyone who thinks the President of the United States has the power to break the status quo is out of their mind and should seriously have their head examined by a shrink.

    The President of the United States doesn't possess enough power to do it, unless s/he has the entire backing of the people and that's not going to happen because this country is already too divided over specific issues.

    So in essence, it makes no different whether or not he is re-elected. Divide and conquer has been under way in America for more than 100 years now. wink

      "Put it this way- anyone who thinks the President of the United States has the power to break the status quo is out of their mind and should seriously have their head examined by a shrink."

      Ron Paul is currently polling in and around 2nd and 3rd place in most Republican Primaries.

        And, if YOU think HE is going to as President of the United States, break the status quo? Then I suggest you do as I said. roll

        And Ron Paul would break the Status Quo by doing what ?  Congress might have a little to say about it ....

          Immediately bring home all troops
          Stop enforcing the unconstitutional drug wars.
          And veto just about every thing that comes his way.
          and more.

          OH, and one more thing: The "departments' are part of his cabinet, so he can abolish them. And he has already pledged to eliminate 5.

          He has also pledged to accept only about 10% of the pay while in office.


          Ron Paul's a big dog.

            A BIg Dog who will never be president and if he did would have no natural Congressional constituency....that is how Washington rolls.

              So what you're saying is that, if he were elected, he would shake things up.

              Thus, you're admitting that he would easily break the statist quo.

              But, you don't want to vote for him because he can't win?

              Brilliant.

            Interesting, but devastating also.
            The war on drugs can be used for good and not what it's being used for now.
            Any idiot knows that it only takes 3/4 of Congress to pass by a veto, so please.
            This matters why exactly?
            Big deal.

    I hope and believe it'll be his downfall in 2012.

    ANYBODY BUT OBAMA!!!

      Unfortunately, "Anybody but Obama" isn't good enough this time.

      Obama is Bush on steroids, and the Republicans (minus one) are just as eager to sell out our future for bribes as every president before them.

      Newt changes his mind on topics the more you pay him; Perry will give your company $3 million for every $16k you give him; and Romney is as big of a flip-flopper as the rest of 'em.

      Vote for real change - silver - and quit settling for fake change - zinc.

    President Obama no matter what he's accomplished is down played. He is not supported in the Legislative branch and I know that race has much to do with it. Bush started 2 war with no funding and signed a Medicare Part B without the resources but yet this never was an issue. I know if Obama had tried this he would have been impeached if that were a possibility. I'm just sick and tired of this hatred. What has this country come to?

      Hatred of Obama isn't the biggest problem this country faces, laringo. Some may hate him for who he is but a majority of those that oppose him dislike his policies and see him for what he really is - a Socialist that couldn't effectively manage a paper route, much less this country.

      He appears to be a great father and husband. Both excellent and admirable traits. However, as an United States president, the man is the worst we've ever had and hatred has nothing to do with that. It's simply an unfortunate fact of life for us all, at least until January 20, 2013, when he leaves Washington as a former president and none too soon.

      ANYBODY BUT OBAMA!!!

    I am willing to bet the $1.45 in my lifetime Adsense account that Obama will win again.. probably with more votes

    Worse that Andrew Johnson, worse that Warren Harding and worse than the list of   do nothing executives we had in the late 19th Century.....you need to review some basic history.  As for the socialist claim --  if Obama is a socialist than so is every president since FDR .....

    1. Evan G Rogers profile image73
      Evan G Rogersposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Actually, the Socialist Presidency started before FDR. FDR was a socialist in spades, that's for sure. And so has every president since.

      Hoover's "do nothing presidency" launched the biggest public spending policy ever, until the New Deal replaced it. Even Abraham Lincoln was a Railroad Lobbyist.

    When the Republicans refused to pass the jobs bill Obama purposed, they showed what their true agenda is, to just create friction.  I would like to see the Republicans actually keep their campaign promise and create all those jobs they kept prattling on about.  Also, if you go to the old line "employers are scared to create jobs until Obama is voted out," then you are simply playing a political game.  Obama inherited a truly dismal economy and two wars from the Bush years, and anyone paying attention knew it would not be an easy task to rein it in.  Obama has done admirably well considering all the propagandists who have flayed about regarding his election.  You would think Ralph Nader had been elected the way they talk.  Never mind Obama has been very centrist, and true liberals feel he could have done much more on things such as health care reform.  If you think Obama is a socialist, then you really do love the propaganda show on Fox, Drudge, etc.

    And what did the previous administration accomplish? Oh, less taxes on the rich for job creation. Okay...where are these jobs? Why didnt they occur during the previous administration. Socialism? hmmm....So what some are saying is get rid of social security, medicare, medicaid, disabilty, ect? And where in the constitution does it talk about capitalism?

    @Evan What I am saying is that outsider/third party candidates have no natural legislative allies....personally I think the Libertarian perspective is way off base....

    The RFC was hardly a bastion of socialism and if socialism was so in vogue why did Eugene Debs do so much jail time and why was Bill Haywood exiled ??
