Take a good hard look at what the progressive scum bags really are after. The founding fathers understood the evils of democracy and that is why they gave all of us a republic ruled by law.



The progressive PTB are going to fail the people are waking up faster then they can put the grand plan in place. They did not allow enough decades to let the progressive brainwashing using education to work.


This is a slippery slope and things are only going to get worse as inflation keeps rising and people lose everything.

I think I just discovered the true definition of a 'n-word'.


Dude. Don't say that. Seriously.


really? What is wrong with calling obama a n-word? Narcissist is totally fitting, and happens to be an n word. although that is not the word I would normally give a worthless do nothing blame it on everyone else even though the buck stops with me piece of trash... a liar... a philanderer, a man who could care less about the 300 million people he represents.. a man who would rather pass laws to inhibit freedom..an man who will bow down an kowtow to the bankers and lobbyists .... I guess I would call than particular man a 'n-word'... why not? Rappers do it... its OK right?

Respect is earned.... and sticks and stones and all of that.. when there is no respect there are always sticks and stones ad bones.... let him earn it... lies only get someone so far these days... we are not that dense


It paints a bad picture of conservatives as "racist". Saying things like that makes people think things like, "Conservatives don't like Obama because he's black", and then they'll use comments like yours as proof. When the truth is, its not about race. Its about his anti-american mindset and hatred of the american way of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Being racist, or using racial slurs, makes conservatives look bad.


I am not a conservative.. I just dont like lazy do nothing people who my tax dollars are paying for.. I have black friends. and they call him a 'n-word'.... with all that is going on in our country and his fail/lack of foreign relations/policies how can any one actually stand up and support this guy.?

Only for the next suit to replace him and be exactly the same or worse. It's the standard for modern politics. Change the system not the guy running it.

As an outsider being English I have always thought he and especially his wife were very racially prejudiced with him and her, totally ignorring his white side of his own genetics. I would honestly wonder if he would voice this whining, if the Founding Fathers had been black. He knew exactly the set up of American Senators and the political machine, before he involved himself in seeking the top seat.

I doubt he is a communist, but certainly a Muslim in heart without a doubt. I think he was set up as some kind of pretty boy, just like our Cameron, with the ideal two kiddy family that he lives with purely to swing the black vote and appeal to the family minded white voter. Nevertheless he is still a patsy who likes to play card games whilst the real rulers of the USA keep the White House 'warm' for him and his entourage. Cameron is the patsy of the elite in the UK and when he opens his mouth and shows his utter ignorance, both feet and legs up to the thigh go into his mouth, much to the embarrassment and irritation of the ordinary people.

This idea that we could only have a great country if only these power checks were not in place is exactly why they are in place. Founders knew that the worst sort of evils hide behind big new plans and fancy ideas. This was even discussed in the Federalist Papers with Napoleon being used as a case example. As well the "populists" sorts that champion the people were mentioned as potentially dangerous.....because in the end these sort really don't care about the rights of the people as "more often than not become tyrants" to paraphrase Madison there. Anyone that hasn't read the Federalist Papers should do so. They are more important now than ever as they demonstrate the reasoning in real demonstrable terms the reasons for our checks and balance.

And just look at the rhetoric this guy used.....very nationalist/populist to monster. Putting the haves on the defensive and calls to sacrifice, recapturing glory days (but not really) faith in party, evil bad guy common enemy ect

And what exactly has Obama done that qualifies him to question the wisdom of the founding fathers?
Did the supposed president really just say that?

As an outside observer, I think he's blaming the wrong part of the constitution.
The real source of the trouble is "separation of powers".
Let the government of the day be formed from the party which has the votes to pass laws and budgets, and the gridlock disappears.

I guess some have issues with freedom of speech


Exactly Mr President. It's designed that way to give people pause when they're doing the WRONG thing.


Are you and your supporters doing the WRONG thing Mr President???

white presidents have said the same thing, but apparently nobody goes back to check that out, because that would ruin the groupthink

But the party has problems "running" the nation from the hill with only 2 senate seats per liberal bastion. In this case equality of senate representation to the liberal is undemocratic check on power.

Were you around during the Clinton years? Clinton took much of the same heat that Obama is taking. I know that been about 14 years ago but its the same party.

you didn't have to, since there hasn't been a previous president that wasn't white, that's my whole point....every president has been stymied by the very nature of our founding form of government. there has always been a frustration from the executive branch because of it....Obama is no different in that regard

How long have you been politically aware?

This is nothing new. Clinton was dragged through the mud, every President has been taken to the shed by public opinion when they start acting contrary to their sworn oaths to uphold and protect the Constitution etc..

Then whats the point *If you have one* by bringing race into the discussion? I mean all Presidents have been through this regardless of skin color.

Obama is being focused in on because he is presently the sitting President.

why? because it was brought up in the bottom half of the first page, along with the standard rant of....Obama is a communist, socialist, destroyer of America, etc.
