Obama will ask more of Americans than to fear everything and shop. He's already proven that with his election. That's why having a community organizer for President isn't as bad as the Republicans would have us believe. If you disagree, you're going to have to work to change Obama's mind. There are millions still working on his changes.

If she was qualified, 60% of America wouldn't think otherwise. If you think she's qualified, I'm going to advise you to lay off the drugs.
So far all Obama has shown us was that he had to spend 1 billion dollars to land a 400k job. Does that sound like a qualifaction to become president?

Not for a while. People who supported the Republican ticket evidently don't like having the shoe on the other foot. When Bush won (sorry--I meant to say, when Bush was installed as President) they thought it was in poor taste for Democrats not to support their man. Now it's the other way around. They can dish it out, but they can't take it.

Gee, I don't know. Why don't you write to FOX News and complain? It seems to me this latest flare premiered on Bill O'reilly's show - and you know what a Leftist he is.

Absolutely!
Money well spent in my opinion.

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Hah!
Great line! Don't mess with a successful Community Organizer when it comes to getting the vote out!

I guess you missed the ten times I posted the links that debunk this rumor! After all, I assume you watched the Charles Gibson & Katie Couric interviews when she had to actually think on her own (although coached & prepped)

http://www.politico.com/blogs/jonath...not_break.html

http://www.usnews.com/blogs/robert-s...pter-myth.html

http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.co...d-lies-of.html

These are just a few. Just because someone on the internet starts a silly rumor (also called a lie) doesn't make it so.

If he doesn't like it in the first two years, he is really going to hate it in 2011 and 2012 after the second republican revolution.

The pain of jealously hurts so badly..! I'm sorry you hurt, but it isn't Sarah's fault she is so much more than you could ever hope to be...

We are just commenting on the clearly Republican in fighting. They need to stop giving us headline material and life will go on. They are so bent on destroying her so other candidates can emerge as favorite. It really is quite amusing you must admit to watch them and then conjecture how could they have ever administered the country. Can you imagine McCain having done as much as Obama already? Can anyone?
