    ridiculous – like who's going to take his place? Santa Claus? Newt or Sarah? Please people, this country has serious, serious problems. Who else can actually do anything to try and solve them?

    Will obama accept one term in office......NEVER!!

    If anyone thinks obama will be any different than Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega or Zalaya when it comes to relinquishing power they have been in a coma for the past two years.

    Less than 7 months is a bit early to be writing President Obama's obituary ... unless this is the media's new windmill to tilt ... sitting in your editorial offices thinking "well – if we publish this idea again and again – I bet we an get President Obama out of office – the Palin/Mitt ticket will generate more profit ... let's see what we can pull off ...."

    The idea of public health care has been around since the Truman Era: only now has a President had the backbone to care enough and to try – if it were easy – maybe even the GOP would have tried ... nah – they don't care about anyone but their big donors ....

    Dear Lord in heaven, I hope so. Obama is a disaster! All of you libs know it just like the rest of the country. You just don't want to admit that you were wrong in voting for this man with his radical agenda.

    How I wish he had never been a first term president. This country would be a lot better off; couldn't be worse if he had never been elected to start with.

    If the hate filled radical right wing has their way, President Obama will not have a full first term.

    He will not have to; but good try GOP. In just 6 months as President our economy is starting to improve. What President Obama is doing is going to take time but it will return us to a more profitable country and for us all. Give him and his plans time to work.

    A single payer non-profit health option will over time get us the health care we deserve.

    The GOP will never do for the people. They do not want this president to succeed meaning they do not want us to succeed.

    He may be. But if he can fix some of the major screwups that are destroying the country by only raising the debt a bit, then I'm all for it.
