    Yes, we get the campaign message. The war president Obama killed Bin Laden. And continues the US policy of military adventurism.

    Mr.President – keep your promises – close Guantanamo, end the tribunals, really stop the US torture, bring home the troops before they get kicked out. Why do think the terrorist threat that he promised would lessen, still continues?

    I just want to give President Obama a hug. This great man that came into office trying to be the best POTUS he could. He had nothing but honorable intentions and he even reached across the aisle in attempt for both parties to work together. Sadly, he had no idea that the GOP were as rotten and racist as they are. He had no idea of the secret pledges and back door deals they were involved in. Still he keeps trying. You have to admire his strength, he is fighting a losing battle.

    So many people say race has nothing to do with it and the next minute someone is calling him a muslim or a kenyan. I feel sorry for the people of the US when your sons and daughters have to fight over in Iran or Czech Republic just so the defense contractors can get richer, while Mittens sons do nothing. All I can say when all is said and done put the blame where it belongs. On your savoir Mittens Robmey, the GOP and yourselves.

    OBAMA 2012!
