From all the comments on these boards and others, I must disagree that 'nobody wishes the worst for our country'. There are plenty of small minded sore losers who hope things get worse under Pres. Obama's second term, so they can get their party back in power.

This leaves the door wide open for the mid-term elections in 2014, when many more Democrat Senators will be vulnerable, and for a Republican to be sent to the White House in 2016, thus saving the Republic.
No, republican Congress has ownership of the "wreckage" for trying to destroy a presidency at the country's expense, and extending Bush policies. You are aware that republican trickle-down and tax breaks have continued? Yet you blame the outcome on Obama.
Amazing!!
A corporate-controlled government in 2016 will be a fascist paradise - not a republic. A republic has a citizens' representative government, not Wall Street control, which seems to be what you repugs are aiming for.

LOL, Bush is president AGAIN. Obama is just a figure head. I say if you want to insist on "pay their fair share" then make it the same percentage across the board and for EVERYONE. When our government overspends we all have skin in the game including all classes. In the case of the welfare leaches they just get a smaller check, the rich also pay.

You wish it gets worse on small business owners because they are successful don't you. Mind you, these people have nothing to do with what the banks did yet you wish them financial harm. Obama did push for legislation for the banks to make loans to people who could not afford and the people who got these loans helped sink the housing market yet once again, the wrong people get the blame and pay the price.

The biggest leachers around are the ones from red states.

This does not sit well with the majority of Americans who do not support the idea of "hate speech" but see it as a threat to liberty.

In short: She has too much baggage.
Based on your theory, President Ronald Reagan should be pilloried and run out of town on a rail based on the fact that he had a big landing of Marines in Lebanon, housed them in a barracks, had the barracks blown up and 258 marines killed and countless injured then immediately pulled them out of the country. Net gain. US-0. terrorist bomber-258.

And how come nobody said sheit about the seven embassies and US state Dept. compounds attacked under George W. Bush? Don't they matter? What is noteworthy is the fact that the democrats were not screaming for Bush's head on a pike when these embassies were attacked.

But Seven U.S. Embassies And Consulates Were Attacked Under George W. Bush

Then why would you have an issue if they want to secede from the union? We should let them secede if this is the case.

Tell me why my post is not relevant to the situation at hand? You people disgust me. All you care about is getting that N***** out of the white house by any means necessary. You lose the election and this is all you have left to hang your hat on. Bah! Humbug.

To answer your question. He is president. He has been president for four years and he will remain president for the next four years.

Whatever soothes the pain from such a horrible defeat. Just brace yourself for 2016 as Hillary moonwalks to the Whitehouse.
