You must be joking.

Sent 35,000 troops to Afghanistan
Hasn't ended operations in Iraq
Doubled deficit already
Umm, increased. Yes. Doubled? Come On.


Use of predator drones on the increase
So what? Unmanned aircraft vs risking human lives? Come On.


Establishes missile batteries in Poland
Extends the Patriot Act
Feigns outrage then approves huge bonuses
Bonuses were not up to Obama. That was a decision that those companies legally had & they made it themselves.



Do I need to go on?

This is exactly what Bush or McCain would have done. Obama has been nothing but a continuation of neo-con policy.

while i don't disagree with your over all point, my point is that you don't have to make things up in order to prove Obama an idiot.

I think he should legalize all drugs. You're gonna to need to be high as a freakin' kite in order to deal with all the problems that an increase in Socialism will bring to America.

I know it's not going to be the most popular idea in this bastion of Libertarian insanity, but President Obama should just stick to his guns and keep doing what he is doing. It would be nice if he could accomplish the majority of his campaign promises as well. If he wants to be the second coming of FDR, that's excellent, and I want to see if he can live up to it. I believe FDR was the greatest president the United States has ever had, and he is the kind of man who could get today's world back on track.

Nothing. After the first complaints about Bush and Co. I knew we were screwed.

Nothing. If he were to do absolutely nothing I would think of him as a good president. No wars, no airport scanners, no new taxes...just do nothing. Go on vacation for four years and play golf.

That would be good.

Nothing could make Me change My mind on Obama. He's a lousy President now and will be in 2012. He's right up there with Jimmy Carter as a bad President,in My opinion!

In my view that Obama should carry on doing what he is doing.
Time and time only will decide if history is kind to the current US President.

At least give him time.
Why do feel that he is a lousy president already ???


Besides, McCain and Palin,,, do you feel McCain would have been a better president ?

Personally two things.

1.) Get us out of the Mideast wars.
2.) Get the economy going again.

That is a no-brainer....since Obama is the absolute worst...anyone would have been better.

Obama is definately better for Republican opportunities in the future though....starting with the 2010 elections!

I may not agree with his policies most of the time,

But in my heart, even though I am angry with him at times, I feel love for Obama, the human.

It is a horrible job, why people want to be leaders, I don't know, but I can feel love for a person.

I am imperfect, we live in a imperfect world,

Number one on my list would most likely be abortion, but having compassion for the person making such a decision is important,

You say no brainer, why ?
You don't give any reason why you hate Obama so much and why he is the worst. Again only Time will tell if he truly will be the worst ever.

The thing Obama would need to do to make me happier!

Would be to issue a warrant for the following people.

You know who you are!

My favorite creepy crawlers right here at ATS. (it's a - J O K E - E)

In all seriousness


All he has to do is keep on keeping on.

I have a feeling, that by the time the fat lady sings, Obama will have more supporters than anyone expects.

But that's me, and the 2 or 3 people here that know me, know what that means.

If I had a wish, it would be that Americans judge Obama by his actions and not their fears.

It's only been a year, I may wind up being an Obama detractor, but he will have to do something real, not imagined.

My 2 cents

RESIGN ... Even a Traitor like Biden is way better than the "Magick Negro", a.k.a "Antichrist", a.k.a. "Joker" a.k.a. "Socialist", a.k.a "Communist". Obama has embarassed his own race and has insured that another "one" will not be elected President for at least 100 years or more.

2nd line ... Lame Duck in 2010. Conservatives will vote all of the "Progressive, Democrats, Socialists and Commie" pieces of "explitive" out of office in 2010.

Hello all, I am new to joining this site and have no idea how to post something in a new thread but have something that I think should be shared. I am going to post it here and hope someone makes a thread specifically for it.

This was sent directly to me from a close family member who works on a USMC base/civil service and recieved this in email today. There are many links within this page that you can go to I suggest click away! Here is the title and link to the webpage sent to me through email.

President calls for urgent improvements to anti-terrorism efforts

He really could have brought the races together I think and when he was elected I felt good and was filled with hope. But he really has not done this and in my humble opinion has done the exact opposite. I will make a short list of things if he changed I would be 100% in his corner.


1-repeal the patriot act

2--no more gun control

3--stop blaming others

4--tell the truth no matter how bad it is

5--bring the races together instead of driving wedges between them

6--no more presidential decrees

7--get rid of the czars

8--treat the police and the CIA and all the rest with respect they have earned it

9--FIX THIS ECONOMY

10--don't bankrupt the country

I am a simple and the things I want are simple if he could do even half of what I listed I would support him like I did when he was elected. I almost feel burned because I truly did believe in him but I also feel redemption is possible I actually do like him just not what he is doing

Lets start with proving he is qualified for the job. Until then he's a Usurper and isn't president let a lone a good one.

Wait for it...................

"He put his BC on the web, you birthers will never be satisfied!"

So, if the web copy is soooooooooo acturate, let Fox news' attorneys go into HI and validate it. Put all the facts and records from schools he attended on the table.

It'll be interesting if Republicans take over the House and Sentate in 2010 if he'll actually run again. My guess is he'll step down, cause somebody isn't gonna let that crap slide twice.

Dismantle the lobbying industry, begin withdrawing from the Middle East, rescind drug laws, prosecute the Bush administration, strip the alphabet agencies on the majority of their power, get real transparency policies, get rid of his czars, destroy corporatism and begin acting like a real socialist.
