    It's becoming evident as the days go on that the President's foreign policy is working. This coalition stratgey is the way our diplomatic efforts should always be. Speaking for myself, I'm tired of us being the world police. Let the europeans take the lead on some of these issues. Gadhafi's days are numbered and Assad is next on the chopping block.

    Once again, our President has shown that he is a strong leader, wise, and that he get results.

    It is time for Americans from every walk of life coming together to back his plans to stimulate the economy and to stop the ignorant, foolish, Tea Party Bullies from destroying the American economy.

    All I say Obama...."God bless you, and the USA". You are doing great job. Focus on Jobs here....you have 16 months still....bring manufacturing...back to usa. call center jobs are coming back. But we need Manufacturing, and also focus on Agriculture. It is totally neglected in America. Nation's progress depends on Manufacturing, and Agriculture. Levy Stiff tariff to foreign made goods.

    Obama never misses an opportunity to get in front of the cameras. Maybe he should just contract with one of the networks to do the nightly news? It seems he's on TV more than they are. He might even be on TV more than his buddy, Hugo Chavez!

    I am sure republicans hope that something bad will happen, so they can blame Obama. We have wasted trillions of dollars on republican unfunded wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, with no mission over the last 10 years, yet they complain about our president working with NATO to get rid of Gadhafi. You cannot have it both ways, you crazy right wingnuts.

    The GOP needs to use a little salt and pepper to make eating crow a little tastier.

    I've got to wonder, with all the foreign policy, military, and terrorism successes under this President, how many Obama haters are secretly longing, for an al queda attack on Americans to hurt him politically??

    In advance of the 10th anniversary of 9-11, I trust that we have tightened our vigilence especially around the "Ground Zero" site in NYC.
