    Dear citizens of the USA, for God's sake but mainly for your own sakes, and despite the worst among you, TRY TO RECOGNIZE WHAT THE REST OF THE WORLD DID LONG AGO: YOU HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT CITIZENS OF ANY OTHER COUNTRY WOULD DIE TO HAVE.
    And I am not Black, blue or green. I am neither Democrat nor Republican.

    It's funny how Barry, I mean Obama had an all time low in approval ratings earlier this year and then all of a sudden Tim Osman, I mean Osama CIA-Bin Laden died without trial, and no photo's of the event's, yet Obama get's 54% approval rating? Coincidense or policial ploy? Either way, something isn't cooking right. I'm glad to see more and more people are waking up about the illegal war in Libya, our taxes being robbed and misused, and how the Federal Reserve is making us a 3rd World Country.

    Wake up America, before it's too late!

    It's already too late for you Alex. Rushbo Limpy has already inserted his chip into your brain and you and doing the "ditto" dance for him. Get over it. Obama got Bin Laden and he's getting a bump from it. Duh DUh Duh-bya used 9/11 like a crutch to make anyone who even slightly disagreed with his policies 'Unamerican." The rest of your rant is pure Faux News talking points.

    President Obama will go down in history as one of our greatest. He's working very hard for all of us and it's such a shame that there are so many out there that just can't let go of their hatred and are so blinded by the Faux news propaganda and/or their utter racism. To those who try to claim it was Bush who should be credited for getting Bin Laden it just goes to show how you all are living in an alternate universe when it is well known that Bush said he wasn't concerned about Bin Laden and didn't even think about him. It was President Obama that made getting Bin Laden a priority and he was the one to finally get him and that's what the history books will show (unless the crazy Republic Texans change that fact as they do other historic events). OBAMA 2012!!

    I need the gas prices to come down more. But, overall, i'm pleased with President Obama. Where he can implement his full agenda, he does. Where he needs to compromise to still get the policy in place, he does.
    Pragmatic, sensible and above all, not a gloater in chief (see the pics of Saddam Hussein's sons, or the pics of Saddam himself walking towards his last moments of life).
    Stock market has improved 50% from when he started; Bush departed with a 25% DECREASE in the Dow Jones avg.
    Unemployment has gone up 9% (from 8.2% to 9%) under Obama. With Bush, it went from 4.2% to 8.2% (a 95% INCREASE).

    So, I think in measurables, the President has been very effective. This is especially true for me when considering he was walking into a dumpster fire and his Repub "friends" refuse to help pull the water hose down the street to put the fire out.
    This current approval is well-deserved and here's hoping the next obl got the msg – eff with US and Obama will find you.

    @ Alex......

    Spell check much?? Kind of like Bush's ratings shot through the roof after 9/11. The thing is haters like you will NEVER like Obama no matter what he does so your opinions don't really matter. It's the ones of people that have true perspective. The far right has been trying to slam this president from day some cases it worked thatnks to FoxNews and 24/7 right wing talk radio and people of your ilk spreading half and untruths about him. But after the SHAM the GOP did in 2010 Nov I think peopl are waking up...slowly but they are.

    @Alex, did you have such concern when Iraq war started? If not, you are biased.

    Sorry @ Alex, You lose. Time to realise the World and USA will vote with their heads for what this President is doing and will be doing in the years to come. Making the world and USA safe, restore market confidence and help the world to heal. People like you should take a look at yourself and make some personal appraisal.

    What illegal war? What "no pictures"? What taxes being robbed? It's not the Federal Reserve exporting middle class jobs and busting is it? We're becoming a third world country because Ronald Reagan trripled the national debt and George W followed by doubling it and leaving office with the world on the precipice of a global depression that would have rivaled the Great Depression. Yes, George W who orchestrated two unfunded wars, deregulated the financial industry, and passed huge tax cuts which were not OFFSET with spending cuts! Duh. It was the Fed under Alan Greenspan/George W who flooded the country with cheap money and encouraged the financial industry to become more creative with their mortgage lending.

    Desmond, thanks for your input. Canada is a wonderful country with a rich history and fine people. Okay, you can have Obama starting in January 2013. Better start saving up now though. He has a little spending problem and he likes big programs and no accountability.

    Hey how are you all doing? this President is a wonderful man indeed... No doubt about it, he's the next.

We all Americans proud of him. Thanks

    Hey Alex-If anybody has to wake up, that would be you. You really have to stop listening to Rush and Fox News. Paranoia can really be a dangerous thing. I can see that you never got over the fact that our president is 1/2 black. Idiot !!
