It is refreshing reading this thread-as someone said, the politics and things in general in the US are weird and getting weirder, a conservative like Obama is attacked by the right-wing loons, the anti-gay stuff, anti-government nuts, etc. I'm Canadian and reading this thread makes me homesick.

There are a lot of good, educated, intelligent people here in the US but also a lot who drink the Karl Rove Kool Aid. As someone said, look at the topics in the Politics section. Ignorant, racist, homophobic, like they were posted by 12 year olds. Weird is the word.

I wonder how much President Obama likes Prime Minister Harper
as Obama only officially visited Canada (Ottawa) once back in february 2009
and hasn't come back(excluding G20 conference in Toronto).

What? It takes two years for someone to think of something to add to this redundant thread? Desperation to foment more inane to and fro must be at an all-time high. Is there a quota we should know about?

There's one major problem with this comment, and that is that when you ask someone their opinion on something, they likely already know your opinion, and thus don't give an opposing one if they indeed have one. The only scientific way to determine what people think is to conduct an anonymous poll. I know many British Columbians who think Obama is worse than Bush (which is hard to do), but most like him.

We live in the US and are Canadians.You will find Canada is similar to USA.There is a part of Canada that likes the government to care for them and there is a part that likes to work hard.
Canada and Canadians are wonderful people and the country is beautiful.It ,however is easily manipulated by the media, and the system decides most of how we think (textbooks being written by certain officials)and also the media is being dictated by certain political parties and the enterprises that benefit by our government keeping us regulated.it's interesting the people and companies regulating everything are profiting off all of us.it's the same in USA ,the middle class ,hard worker or small business owner that is hurt.The USA is heading down the same path.
People in Canada know that Obama isn't a good President, same as the USA.

Your opinion is different than mine, seems to me President Obama has done an outstanding job considering the obstruction he's had to face from the right since becoming President, heres a few positive links=

As all American politicians. many Canadians find Obama too conservative. The democratic party is like our conservative party, even slightly more right and capitalist because that's how the U.S. is. I personally don't have much of an opinion, I only like to follow Canadian politics, which focuses on real issues.
