    Just goes to prove you can spend 170 million dollars on a party for yourself but the American people know you got that money from Wall Street and the bankers Mr Obama. You need to do something this term more than stand around holding hands with gay people and pretending to be a liberal. You offered up the Seniors cost of living raises and spend 170 million a fcking party? You're no different than GW Bush. Criminals all.

    When I am inaugurated, I'm just going to invite a few close friends, the Chief Justice and of course my Secret Service agents to a bar.-.b-que on the White House back 69. I hate large formal parties and it will let the American people know that I'm a pretty regular dude.

    @AlexMIA You know I've never really faulted Clinton for messing around. I mean who wouldn't that was married to Hilary? And I sure would have lied if I had of and got caught before I'd want to face Hilary. But I cannot forgive him for Monica. The most powerful man in the world, who has intelligence, who has his choice of women did the fat chick. that's just not acceptable. I mean Kennedy gets Marilyn Monroe and Clinton does Monica? Come on now.

    Something is definitely different about America these days. I noticed a radical change around 2009. America got a lot gloomier and lot more lethargic. I wish my children could grow up to know the America my father and grandfather grew up in. Too bad for them, they'll only get to know the America obama has created with lowered standards for all.

    Actually Neo - you got a lot gloomier in 2009 probably just about this time of year. And I think I might be able to guess why. It would be great if you kids could have lived in you grandfather's time at least unless they contracted polio or any of the other diseases that they had no cure for back then. It's easy to see the past through rose colored glasses but the truth is that there has never been a better time to be alive. It has nothing to do with Obama or Bush. We are living in the most advanced time the planet has ever seen. There will be more wonders to come. Enjoy!

    @PNWest - No, this is a terrible time to be alive. We can't even fully realize the benefits of our technological advances because we have become a nation of whiners and crybabies. We were once a strong nation that could tackle any challenge. The bar has been lowered so far so that anybody can be a part of the American dream that the dream is now a nightmare. Once upon a time people were expected to step up, not anymore. The end of this nation is so near I can see it on the forecast.

    R.I.P. America!

    @Neo_NtheMatrix Let's do a thought experiment. Say you are right that we are a nation of whiners and crybabies. Then a strong individual should be able to easily succeed against such lazy competition. That being the case your sons who I will assume have a strong work ethic should be able to be very successful against such lazy competition. The future looks bright for them. And therefore for you. America has got a lot more to go. You'll be a part of it and so will they.

    @PNWest - Excuse me, I'm just a little bit bitter these days. I had to work hard for everything I have. My first job was when I was just ten years old. I felt a certain joy and satisfaction knowing that I earned what was mine, that I accomplished something, and that I contributed to society. I'm a little jaded that an entire life can be handed to someone through excessive government that I have to pay for. I put myself through school, I didn't have obama pay for my education. I fed and clothed my family, I didn't get a subsidy from mr. obama. Today, people don't have to work for a living, what for? obama has gifts and goodies for all, and all I get is the bill for it. Worse than that, it's my children and grandchildren who will really have to pay for all of obama's spending. Never mind me, I feel very burned by how this country has changed trajectories. Congratulations to all those who won free government assistance for nothing more than a vote to mortgage the future of our country.

    @PNWest - I have no doubt my sons, both of them, will be successful. What I fear is they'll have to pay for those who are not successful. They won't get as far ahead as they should off of their hard work because they'll have to carry the increasing burden of the lazy and fruitless.

    9 out of 10 people think congress sucks. The executive at the top whether I agree with the choice or not wont make any real difference. In this case, President Goldman Sachs won months ago.

    Obama did a good job in his first term. Winding down Bush's 2 unfunded wars, killing Osama bin Laden, saving GM and Chrysler, passing his healthcare initiative and saving the country from a second great depression all make him a very good President. From his inaugural address it is clear that he is prepared to do battle with the obstructionists in congress to move the nation forward. I expect him to be far less compromising in his second term.

    Nonsense. Obama did a TERRIBLE job. he had a senate super majority and couldn't ram through socialized medicine and allowed the GOP and blue dog democrats to water down that health care to the point that the only people who will benefit by Obamacare are the insurance companies. I don't call that a win. He added four more years of an unfunded war to the 7 Bush had for Afghanistan and all we have to show for it is more American deaths and more deficit. He has not accomplished a thing in Afghanistan. He withdrew on Bush II's timetable in Iraq. He gets ZERO credit for that. He didn't save GM from Bankruptcy and we will never get all our money back from GM while their executives are making record bonuses and pay. He could have taken the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac paper that we took a trillion dollar loss on so he could pay the banks , and rewrote those loans to an affordable level so people could keep their homes. But he didn't do that. he let the banks take the homes and gave them their money on top of that. That's pure corruption.

    Obama did not close down gitmo as he promised. He extended and expanded and defended the Patriot Act and other government spying on our own citizens. He refuses to do anything about that border and in fact wants to give amnesty. Other than giving the go ahead on Bin Laden the only thing Obama has done is advance gay rights. I expect more from my President. I think GW Bush was the worst president in History. But Obama is not a good president.

    @jessejaymes The senate super majority is a myth. For nearly 6 months the GOP prevented Al Franken from taking his senate seat with dubious lawsuits. After that Obama had to deal with the blue dog democrats and independent Joe Lieberman. He is winding down the wars slower than you would like but way faster than it it would have happened under McCain/Palin or Romney. Healthcare would have been much better had he jammed it through rather than trying to compromise with the GOP but it will get better. Healthcare reform has been attempted by almost all Presidents since FDR - Obama is the one that got it done. Fannie & Freddie - I'll give you those . He should have prosecute the banksters. He stumbled on closing GITMO and the Patriot Act in the face of untied GOP opposition and lack of support from democrats. While not a perfect President, Obama has been a good one. As for GW Bush, the less said about him the better.

    @PNWest Well I expect both sides to defend their own. That's human nature. but you give him far too much credit for "winding down the wars". he escalated Afghaistan and we have suffered and continue to suffer monthly record America deaths. If those damn heathens are not ready to protect themselves at this point they never will be. TRILLIONS have gone to pay off that puppet dictator there on Obama's watch. And Obama has not gotten ANYTHING done on healthcare. Have you read that monstrous piece of crap? Most will continue to pay record increases every year WHILE supporting the working class poor. I am in favor of socialized medicine. obamacare is not it. All it does is make the insurance companies richer while attacking the wallets of what little is left of the middle class. And his offering up the senior cost of living raises while living like a feudal lord did it for me. I took my SS at age 62 since I had no faith it would even be there by 65. It was but in the four years since my check has not gone up one dime. Luckily I don't depend on SS but millions do. At an average of around 700.00 a month. A welfare person in America gets more than the average senior does on SS. After paying in a lifetime. In 4 years the increases in Medicare has outstripped the one cost of living raise I've had. WHILE congress got cost of living raises while claiming the seniors had no cost of living increase. One peep from obama? Not a one. And he offers up the COL in exchange for "averting the fiscal cliff". That's BS.

    Do you remember what happened after Reagan gave amnesty? that border became a sieve and they flocked in tenfold like never before. That will happen again. Just how many damn illegals do you lefties support? 100 million? 200 million? A billion? And now he's going to be Mr./"Gun Control".

    70% of America is struggling to get by. Are losing ground every single year. And Obama takes 10 million dollar vacations. 170 million inauguration. does the GOP do the same? Of course they do. But one who claims to be a progressive and against govt as usual would seem to have a problem with a Dem acting like a GOP. But I guess you don't. I would a progressive to lead by example not by words. Hell GW Bush called himself a compassionate conservative. Obama spends just like Bush. While Obama loves to talk about shared sacrifice I wonder what and when he's going to sacrifice? I expected Bush to spend half his time "vacationing". I expect a liberal to get the hell to work. But Obama is just as bad as bush.

    And there is NO excuse for him not killing that Patriot act. NONE.

    I understand that to you liberals that social issues are of paramount importance. But the majority of America out here, most of us whom are moderates, we don't care one piece of bat dung about his efforts for the gays.. We want him to get EVERYONE out from under the yoke of the rich. Teddy Roosevelt was elected under much the same circumstance as Obama. The rich were raping and looting America. Roosevelt went to war with the rich. obama takes the money of the rich and does damn little to oppose the destruction of the middle class. I'd like to see him put as much emphasis on the middle class as he does gay rights. Sometimes it matters if a President stands up and fights for the ENTIRE country and not just your pet social issues. I don't mind the social issues if he's doing something for the entire country but he's not. He's a bad President and a shameful caricature of a liberal. There is more to being a liberal than just gay rights.

    @jessejaymes I think that the list of accomplishments in Obama's first term is impressive. There is only so much that could be done. Go back and look at the newspapers from 4 years ago to see how far we have come. We are on the way forward. Obama has done a good job in the face of united GOP opposition. Yes some things could be better but he is a far far cry from a bad president.

    @PNWest We'll never agree on Obama. he's another Jimmy Carter as far as I'm concerned. The reason that America is recovering slowly is TIME. Bush II got slowed down his final two years in office and it's been four more years of both parties gridlocking which is actually what this nation needed instead of just black check signing like went on for 6 years under Bush. but 6 years now of gridlock has stopped the bleeding. it hasn't fixed anything. obama is weak, he's owned by Wall Street and he's a coward in opposing anything but his own special interests, which you supporters of him call "social issues". Well this country needs ONE social issue faced long before any of the others. And that is getting America back to work and he's doing a piss poor job of it. Giving Solyandra (George Soros" half a billion dollars as repayment for his support, is typical GOP CRAP. Not what a real progressive Politician would do. He put no more oversight on the bailouts than Bush did Halliburton in iraq. It's the same old song of corruption just the second verse. Strangely the second verse sounds a lot like the first verse. So while you laud him for his "social issue" accomplishments, America languishes in ever increasing poverty and loss of buying power. Obama did not take on the ultra rich at all. That's because he is their boy. Just like Bush was. Hogs of a different color at the taxpayer trough are still hogs.

    I got this thrill up my butt like back at Carter's Inauguration. Actually, Obama is a white Huey Long, 40th Governor of Louisiana. Look him up on Wikipedia.

    I held my nose (the Palin factor) when I voted for Senator John McCain in the 2008 elections. I viewed President Obama's election with apprehension as I was not sure of what he would do regarding 2nd Amendment rights. I wasn't too happy about Senator John McCain's record there either! However, as time went by, I became CONVINCED that President Obama DOES CARE about the American People more than multi-national megabuck corporations. However, his willingness to use ISOLATED TRAGEDIES and DISREGARD US Department of Justice Reports which DO NOT make the case for more "gun control" has left me a bit apprehensive of what his 2nd Term will be like. I still like and support many of his views but think that his Executive Orders attempting to circumvent the Will of the People regarding firearms smack a little bit of Roman Emperor more than American President. I support my President in many of his stances, but I oppose him VEHEMENTLY insofar as EXPLOITING ISOLATED TRAGEDIES to please the Extreme Left Wing of the Democratic Party, and BAN THE WEAPONS LEAST USED IN CRIME & MURDER, i.e. so-called "Assault Weapons". Don't take my word for it, see what the US Department of Justice Reports say at tinyurl dot com/Jim-McCauley Also, using the hot link at the web site to go to Senator Feinstein's web site, SEE HOW SENATOR FEINSTEIN HAS MISREPRESENTED WHAT THE US DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE REPORT ON THE FIRST ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN SAID. Shameful misrepresentation of facts and outright DECEPTION.

    All this adulation by their adoring O'Bot's is understandable, while the rest of us can see through this narcissistic wannabe despot like a pane of glass. Did you notice Moochelle wearing her new Cleopatra wig for her Mark Anthony?-- While he thinks he's Julius Caesar. He spoke as if he had a 'mandate.' But garnering 50.6% of the votes, and considering 94 Million registered voters didn't vote at all, is NOT a Mandate, your hollowness.....<wink>
