    It's my anecdotal impression that putting Obama into headlines increases the partisan nature of comments by 200%.

    that's a great photo. It would work on a billboard in Vegas advertising some casino's Illusionist. Unfortunately, it's starting to look like when it comes to the economy that is all he is.

    Just like of any poll the outcome can be predetermined by the verbiage used in the questions, the "heat level" in comments are totally determined by the controversial nature of the verbiage employed. Putting "Michelle Obama" in the title vs "Obama" will produce a totally different level of intensity reply

    And yet you do it day in and day out for the Sheer Drama or for the GOP money you get Paid.

    I don't understand the result so far.

    There are so many people here whose response is,"Obama is the spawn of Satan!!" to just about any question that is raised.

    Q "Will the sun rise tomorrow?"
    A "No, Obama, that scum, gave the sun to the commies!!"

    Know what I mean?

    Of course I'm swayed... when I hear Obama's proposal I am immediately swayed in the other direction... I guess that thinking is if you just say some communist wants to take your second Amendment away... but you don't mention Obama's name... 80 percent of the United States gun owners will say oh okay yeah that's different

    @martydotcom no Marty I said I wasn't going to watch the President's fairy tales. I'm going to watch the LAPD SWAT team take out Chris Dorner . I assume you will probably be watching Barack Obama give the same speech he gave in 2009.. and 10 11 and 12...lol

    @bsking I know what you said you'll be sitting listening to talking head who are far removed from the scene make themselves experts on psychopaths with. Gee the suspense is a killer. He's trapped in a cabin and has sworn nit to be taken alive? Think the cops will interfer with speech? Tactics I think will dictate this be over before dark . Maybe you'll get to see both. LMAO

    I'm coming to the point that I am influenced by the name obama. When I hear he's "appealing to the public" I expect that his agenda is guns gays or illegals and nothing else. I think the job of President is to balance running the country in a responsible manner along with social issues. I have come to associate the name Obama with social issues and poor money management.

    I would think the biggest problem he will have tonight is his trustworthyness. He has a history of not doing as he says which makes him no different than most politicians, BUT he is the man of the hour and his untruths are staring him in the face before he ever opens his mouth. Whatever he says will be a hard sale and his track record isn't going to help him.

    @marine1 Well some of the things he promised like closing gitmo the GOP stopped. But he's been very ineffective, wasting billions in stimulus and bailouts which were given without any assurance of being full repaid. The man may be a great liberal on social issues and he may well be a Law expert but he has ZERO financially credibility with me.

    @jessejaymes The GOP put the same hurdles in front of Clinton but by be a leader he seemed to get the job done. Some people are ment to lead and some are not.

    @marine1 I totally agree. I hate to put it this crass but Obama either has no balls or he's totally owned by the same people that own the GOP.

    @jessejaymes I think he is owned, just like the ones before him. There is a power in this world like you and I will never know or understand.

    He should go ahead take extreme conservative positions. Then, republicans can just go ahead and oppose themselves. Oh, wait. That's already happening.

    If the poll question were "Do you support Ronald Reagan's support for the Assault Weapons ban?" then you would get less rambling from the ones that know that Reagan supported the ban but standard ignorant rambling from Teabaggers that know nothing of history.

    My kneejerk is that if he supports an idea, I probably won't as I just can't find many of his ideas that are good. However, I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't first try to understand his point and the back-story first.

    This guy is a snake you start to maybe sit and listen to what might be a good idea then bam you got bit. He's a habitual liar always blames the other guy never takes the blame or responsibility for his policies and what pisses me off the most is that he then has the gall to look right into the camera and blame you the Amrerican for not understanding what his goals are. And then there's the G.O.P the step child of the White House.

    No because all of it and president are so full of you know what. I forgot he was talking about the perfect storm he did not do anything except get a photo shoot

    99% of Barack Obama's policies involve bigger government, higher taxes, less freedom, and more regulation. Would I suddenly support a Marxist/Leninist because I agreed with him or her 1% of the time? Nope.

    The game in the picture of Obama makes me look like some kind of shaman or voodoo priest ... I suppose neither 1 of those cases he would know more about health care than he does now

    Here's the problem. Bush put in the patriot act which is the greatest removal of freedom ever instituted in America to that time. Obama promised to do away with it but instead renewed it and added to it. You can't trust any politician alive who will vote for the Patriot act. the biggest difference in Obama and Bush? Well it's not guns since all this gun talk by Obama is window dressing because he knows the House will not pass any control bill. It's not illegals because Bush tried to give amnesty to illegals. No, the sole difference between Obama and Bush is gays and that piece of crap called Obamacare that will only benefit the insurance industry. I was willing to hold my nose about Obama if he had of delivered true socialized medicine but he only made it worse. So his entire legacy comes down to gay rights at this point. I expect more from a president. And CERTAINLY more from a Liberal President.

    I have my own view on topics. If Obama was against banning assault weapons, we would agree. If Obama's immigration reform makes common sense, I would agree with him. That he has drones flying over our own country we completely disagree. His name has no impact on my beliefs. He just happens to be doing many things I disagree with.
