Obama is going to call for sacrifice on the part of the American people and his poll numbers may go down. Joe's just telling the truth.
Sorry but if you honestly think all Bush did after 911 is to tell people to go shopping, you have a very short, one sided memory. If it weren't for Bush and his administration, we would have had more planes in more buildings and more terrorist attacks on our land. Do you not remember the international speeches of "we will not sleep until we get you" and going after terrorist cells world wide within the week? Rallying all of or international allies to help put a stop to terrorism world wide? We rounded up buches of them within weeks and threw them in jail where they are still rotting or already exicuted. Did he not put in place so many more security measures to keep us safe that WORKED? I know they worked because there are no more terrorist attacks on our soil. Oh, but then people started to get worried that someone would listen in on their phone calls so it all turn around real quick, people forget way to easily and believe what main street media, one sided channels and newspapers feed them. After 911 I can not tell you how many times I hear people (and yes even in the media) were thanking God it was not Clinton/Gore in there when that all happened. They were happy Bush was there, now that the economy tanked, they are blaming Bush and the repubs for EVERYTHING that has happened in the past 8 years. Specifically the last 4. Hint everyone, President does NOT control Wall street...free trade, remember that? Boy some Americans just amaze me. One day it is "government stay out of my business and pocket" the next it is " Governments fault I have not succeeded, so government better bail me out". Then those same people get mad about the terms of the bail out and blame that on the president too. And then they ignorantly BELIEVE what campaigning candidates say they are going to do! Please tell me of ONE president that was actually able to do what they said they were going to do on the campaign trail?.....None!
Newsflash folks, it is congress that makes those changes, and laws that created this mess.......guess who has control over congress. Don't know? Look it up, do your research, factual research, not what CNN, NBC, FOX or MSNBC is feeding you. You want REAL change, tip the scales with your vote at the congress level. Better yet, fire them all and start from scratch. Go to congress.org, learn how our countries system really works. Look at how much feeken money they make for being in the house or senate, look at their retirement packages, then look at what they actually accomplish and push for. A real eye opening, make you want to vomit learning experience. Might make you decide to vote with an educated vote verses liking a pretty speech.

OH Please!. Did you lose 32 friends in the World Trade Center? Did you lose 300 coworker's , well we did. Obama's name is Arab and his thinkings are Socialist. That alone sends a red flag.
We will no longer be the US, we will be a socialist nation. It has been proven that a Democratic or Republican President does better if they have the house or senate opposite what they are. He will put through too many bills without opposition which will not be good for this country.

Sorry to hear you lost so many friends and coworkers in the WTC tragedy. That is so sad and must have been awful for you. You are not the only one here who lost loved ones that awful day. All that being said, Obama is not an Arab and is not a socialist. Do you remember the Oklahoma bombings? White Americans who hated and mistrusted the gov't. Maybe instead of continuing to spew hate and mistrust, you should try to support who ever our next president will be. We need more cohesiveness, not more hate!

He is not proven he isn't one. He has not produced documents. He may even have been born in Kenya.
He was an unknown before this election. It just seems strange that an unknown was put up for the highest office.

Isn't Giam Italian, Wasn't Italy part of the Axis Powers and anti-American.
Didn't they kill inocent people. Guilty by association (or marriage)

A case can be made against almost anyone.

Note: Not trying to be personal, but trying to make a point since the poster doesnt seem to get it
