No...we all have to be respectful towards the President of the United states and not politicize his visit...blah..blah...blah blah blah.....

Respect is earned...Obama has earned nothing but disdain. There hasn't been a worse president during my lifetime and when he goes, I will be a much happier person. This "man" has done nothing for America.


You must not be very old then. You said there hasn't been a worse president during your lifetime.

I can name quite a few in my lifetime. Bush and Bush Sr. Ford, Carter, Nixon and Johnson. I really liked Clinton until the Lewinski thing but overall it was a pretty good presidency for our country...I'm don't hate Reagan but there were a few things like Iran Contra....today that kind of REAL scandal would have wrecked him and maybe rightly so.

Let's see...out of 9 presidents...if we consider Reagan and Clinton good, Obama is number three. with six of way worse than him in our lifetime.

Because he, like many others, want to use tragedies such as this one for his agenda of gun control and people are tired of this crap.

The tragedy did not happen because of American gun laws, or because of our 2nd amendment right to own and bear arms. The tragedy happened because there are deranged murderers who want their 15 minutes fame by murdering people. The leftwing media and the Obama administration are using such tragedies to impose their views on all Americans.

S+F for the State of Jefferson. The lack of representation in northern California is atrocious. The entire 1/3 of the state has only 6 representatives in Sacramento...the rest of the state has 114, of which LA County has 35 representatives in Sacramento!
Yes we can say "well it's based upon population" but that still leaves no representation for these large areas in the north. LA County can push through things like the "fire tax" which is a large tax set on those in these rural areas in the north, we can tell all 6 of our reps we don't want it and 6 vs 35? It's getting slammed through...

You obviously didn't know, or ignore the fact that the Clintons received quite a few million dollars from foreign governments including a Chinese company with close ties to the Chinese communist government.


...
One donor - Rilin Enterprises- pledged $2 million in 2013 to the Clinton Foundation's endowment. The company is a privately-held Chinese construction and trade conglomerate and run by billionaire Wang Wenliang, who is also a delegate to the Chinese parliament. Public records show the firm has spent $1.4 million since 2012, lobbying Congress and the State Department. The firm owns a strategic port along the border with North Korea and was also one of the contractors that built the Chinese embassy in Washington.

That contract is a direct tie to the Chinese government, according to Jim Mann, who has written several books on China's relationship with the U.S.
...

www.cbsnews.com...

Perhaps you also forget that Clinton approved a transfer of "sensitive missile technology to China"... Perhaps tied to the millions Clinton received from China.


...
President Clinton said in a letter to Congress that the transfer would not harm national security or significantly improve China's military capability in space. The President was required under a 1998 law to certify that all such technology exports are in the national interest.

The certification was the first such notice to Congress under the law, which was passed in the aftermath of a Congressional uproar last year over the transfer of sensitive missile technology to China.

Mr. Clinton's notification also follows by less than a week the release of a report by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which concluded that lax monitoring of the launching of American-made satellites aboard Chinese rockets had enhanced the accuracy of China's ballistic missile arsenal.
...

www.nytimes.com...

BTW, the 2 million the Clintons received from that Chinese company wasn't the only money they received.


...
Although slightly more than half of his appearances were in the United States, the majority of his speaking income, $56.3 million, came from foreign speeches, many of them in China, Japan, Canada and the United Kingdom, the Post review found.
...

Heck, how about the scandal on the amount of information "appropriated" by the Chinese of sensitive and classified technology from the U.S. during Clinton's Presidency meanwhile he received millions from them?...

Or how about Sandy Berger, who was the United States security advisor for President Clinton and was found to have stolen classified information.

Not only that, but before that he supposedly didn't notify Clinton that the Chinese government had somehow "acquired" designs for the W-88 U.S. nuclear warhead... Berger had been notified by the DOE of the espionage and theft in April 1996, yet he somehow failed to tell Clinton until July 1997...

Not only that, Clinton kept this man in his job despite this...and then Berger stole more classified info... You have to wonder, why would Clinton keep such an inept U.S. National security advisor? Clinton defended him, and even after Berger was found for certain years later to have stolen more classified info, Berger was only given pretty much a slap in the wrist.

How forgetful people are these days.

BTW, Obama is not better than Bush. Obama hasn't been one of the best Presidents in U.S. history either...

I'll give you Clinton...I already mentioned that was up for debate. As far as world influence...peace with Russia. Middle East ties.. US Economy...I still think the Clinton presidency was pretty good for the US. But I'll give it to you.

Reagan, not a huge fan but I thought he guided us through the cold war pretty well and he was what the American People needed.

So as far as the last night Presidents go. Reagan, then Obama. Not saying Obama was the best President ever nor near the top but he is near the top of the past few Presidents. He's so much better than Carter or either Bush or Nixon or Johnson. Maybe Ford was better? Ford's presidency was really one of just nothing. Nothing good, nothing bad?

There is no way you can tell me Obama isn't near the top of this list---

Reagan
Obama
Bush Sr.
Bush Jr
Nixon
Clinton
Carter
Ford
Johnson

Please enlighten me.

I can't wait to see this phony president leave office. Before they even knew how many was dead he's already up there on TV talking about taking guns away. Since a criminal killed several people we should disarm everyone so they are totally helpless just like the helpless unarmed security officer onsite at the school at the time of the shooting. Why can't we go back to basics and follow the constitutional laws and let the law abiding citizens determine if they should carry or not? You never see this nonsense in the 80's & 90's. So what has change over the years? Well the economy and inflation has gotten worse and therefore crime is worse. How about actually fixing the economy Obama and creating JOBS not Wars?? People break down at some point and this is what happens. Fix the economy and it will go back to normal again.

Obama refuses to tell the truth of how bad things really are and lies about employment numbers. In that same speech he still believes that unemployment is 5.1%!! I got up and turned the TV off I was so pissed! Their own census.gov website reports say that 100 million are not working. The population is 320-350 million of which 100 million of that are children and elderly! So obviously it's not 5.1%!! You cannot believe a word he says. Our idiot vice president sits there and hasn't said a damn thing since he got into office. Biden might as well not even exist. He doesn't have the balls to say anything. Yes master Obama, I agree master Obama. He just stands there like a Frankenstein butler. What a circus!

Enlighten you?... How many times has Obama gone around Congress to try to pass laws that he and his thugs wanted implemented?...

He was the first U.S. President to socialize a U.S. company, GM.

He gave us the failure that is Obamacare, and shoved in laws which forced most Americans to pay for abortions even if we disagree with it.

He has put more "Czars" into positions of power that are so leftwing that they are in fact socialists and communists.

Not to mention all the lies by the Obama administration that "unemployment is much better now", when his administration has been hiding the true unemployment figures for years...

He has made allies enemies, and called enemies our friends despite still having a deep hatred of the U.S.

According to Eric Holder Obama has the right, and power to murder Americans in U.S. soil with drones.

Not to mention that Obama has allowed minor criminals into the U.S. and he gave explicit commands to border patrol to allow illegal immigrants into the U.S. even if they are criminals. A few of those criminals have already committed crimes, including the MS-13 criminal that was arrested in New York.


...
President Barack Obama’s administration is knowingly allowing illegal immigrant gangsters from Mexico and Central America into the United States, and some are even being reunited with their family members.

The gang members reportedly belong to some of the most dangerous gangs in Central America and Mexico, like MS-13, but Border Patrol agents are handcuffed, especially if the illegal immigrants are deemed to be “minors.”President Barack Obama’s administration is knowingly allowing illegal immigrant gangsters from Mexico and Central America into the United States, and some are even being reunited with their family members.

The gang members reportedly belong to some of the most dangerous gangs in Central America and Mexico, like MS-13, but Border Patrol agents are handcuffed, especially if the illegal immigrants are deemed to be “minors.”

According to National Review, Border Patrol agents who “recognize the gang-affiliated tattoos of minors crossing the border must treat them the same as anybody else.” An Arizona Border Control agent said that it was upsetting that a lot of the gang members are16 or 17 years old and a lot of them are not going to face deportation.

www.breitbart.com...

Now, lately he is "politicizing" atrocities to push for his anti-gun agenda, despite claiming that he was never going to do it.

Apart from the newer attempts by Obama to pass anti-gun laws in the U.S. there are the older attempts by the Obama administration to pass laws restricting American's rights to bear arms... Remember Fast and Furious scandal?
Not talking about the movie...

What about the increase in debt of $8 trillion U.S.D. under Obama? He even went on live TV to claim that "we don't know where the trillions of dollars that disappeared went to". It took Senator Ron Paul, among some other Senators to investigate the issue to find that $13 trillion U.S.D. from U.S. taxpayers had been "re-allocated" to foreign banks from 2007-2010.

You want to claim he is one of the greatest Presidents and that's bs. He is the worst U.S. President.

Obama and his administration want criminals, and real terrorists in the U.S. so they can implement more of their draconian laws.

You're welcome to your opinion. And by the way, I'm 50 years old and Obama is by far the worst president during my lifetime as far as what he has done to our country. Short of dropping an actual nuke...he has done more damage to the USA than any other president...in my opinion.

Look I'll agree with you ElectricUniverse and WeAreAwake to a degree. You've listed things that Obama has done that aren't good or are wrong or make him not that great of a president. We can't argue with some of the stuff you have said and He is NOT one of the Greatest presidents of all time.

However, my contention is that he is one of the best recently of the last 9 that we've had.

Bush Jr was all about the Money and big oil profits and profits for Cheney/Haliburton. The Iraq war was nothing short of Criminal. We only went in there for Oil money. He let 9/11 happen. It was his watch. Our international relations were at an all time low when he was president.

Bush Sr was all about Oil as well. Kuwait.

Clinton...you know his scandals.

Carter. What did he do? He's a great man. The things that he's accomplished after his presidency are legendary. But while he was president he was very innefective.

Ford. Nothing

Johnson. Criminal

Nixon. Criminal

Reagan Mixed but I'll give you Reagon.

Where does that Leave Obama?

It's not enough to list some of his transgressions without listing his accomplishements. And most of the transgressions you list are debatable. Then you have to actually compare him with the other presidents on things like international relations, the Economy, our freedoms, and accomplishments and Scandals.

To take one of your points as an example. ObamaCare. It's not a failure with many millions of people that had no insurance before insured now. But really we don't know. You don't know if it's a failure or a success. Google it. You'll get millions of page hits and the first couple thousand are mostly going to be propaganda from one side or the other.

He's probably top 2 in the last 9 presidents. You tell me who was better and why?

From the facebook page, over 4,000 people are planning on attending. Roseburg is making it clear how they feel about Obama and presumably gun control.


How'd the protest go? Was Obama successfully denied entry?
