    It takes a really classy man – an intelligent man – a convinced man to start this high office with this enormous load of problems the country faced in the company of an opposition that stated right from the beginning they wanted HIM to fail. Just think of it! They did not say: “We want to see the programs and we will evaluate and support what we like and make alternative suggestions where we feel we have a better idea to solve the problems.” All the opposition said was NO, HELL NO and tried to discredit and “stop” the President!
    Considering that, the President did an outstanding job getting good results and keeping his manners, his class and his goal to work for all Americans! For that I congratulate him, I thank him and I support him! I am convinced he could do much more for the country when the support were where it belongs – work to bring the USA forward into a better future!

    The worst president in the history of the United States.

    There needs to be an investigation, prosecution and jail time for the Obama administration and the “zars” Obama appointed, the American people can only wait for the new Congress to put these people in prison. In 1994 historians say the Democrat loses was a slaughter; the 2012 election cycle is going to be a massacre.

    Let’s review
    higher unemployment
    higher taxes
    higher home foreclosure rate
    tax evading Democratic Party
    tax evading Obama administration
    the “Porkulus” Spending bill
    out of control budget / no budget
    health care reform disaster
    4 terrorist attacks in the USA since Obama took office
    Oil spill disaster in the Gulf

    I watched fox news the other day and all they do is fear munger and programs cuts, they fought like hell to give the rich tax cut even willing to put the whole country in jeopardy to do so, a policy that devastated this country for the past 10 years with about 5 trillion dollars cost. Lesson people giving money to rich and corporations stop the capitalistic cycle, because because you have taking the avenue from the spenders to get money, when the money is taken out of the cycle process and given to the supply section, their is no movement, no circulation it's like a dead man. The repugs want to cut the money from the spenders of the economy, how will the local economy get their customers? how will they hire people? they need to force the rich to join in the burden of bringing this country back, and don't make the middle class and poor do it alone. the repug need to start forcing the rich to stop hoarding their money on the sideline and start investing back into
    the economy, and stop defending them every time.
