My retirement investments have grown nicely under him also. Most people's did, but of course no conservative would ever DARE mention any good news, even if it benefits them and their families.

I am certain in 2012 a lot of conservatives are going to be quite surprised how easily he is reelected.

The Supreme Court determines if something is unconstitutional or not. It's certainly not the pro-criminal aka amnesty crowd.

The jury is out for me because he's way more conservative than I thought he would be. He has the same old neocon policies. The health care bill is a transfer of taxpayer money to private insurance companies. He is scared to touch DADT. Financial reform caused Wall Street to pop the champagne corks(that can be good). People in the admin actually react to the right wing media. (bush league). Like i said...the jury is out.

Due to Obama's compromising with republicans the only realizations have been watered-down versions of what they should have been.

And you think all of these things would be good?

With the exception of gay marriage which I think should be legal the rest are nothing but a sink hole that will suck the life out of this country. We can not throw money at an issue, you have to solve the issue. The economy is horrible because people don't have jobs. Giving more money to greedy companies is not going to solve that. Give small to medium companies tax breaks for hiring and retaining jobs, tax breaks for adding or beginning manufacturing here. This will level the playing field against huge companies. Just simply handing them cash is not gonna do it. People who do not have jobs are not going to spend money.

As for health care I have long said that we need reform but NOT government control.

I hate to tell you but I don't think there are to many people that are as liberal in their views as you are so if Obama had/does the things you say he will be out for sure.

The law has been neutered and Brewer is already backing down. That's fine if you think the amnesty crowd is pro-criminal. You also believe all the homeowners, business owners and other Americans are criminals for encouraging illegal immigration, correct?

He also said his "faith" tells him a marriage is between a man and a woman.

What faith would that be?

They are suppose to be representing their districts and the dems have shut out those people and their voices on purpose.

Obama acting like a centrist is another joke.

Obama is about as far left and radical as any of us alive have seen.

Is is not smart enough to come to the center like Clinton had to knowing that the majority of us are center right and our beliefs are NOT LIBERAL.

Obama thus far, zero accomplishments, far too many broken promises of importance, caught in way to many lies, weakened our national defenses, embarrassed around the world and his radical socialistic agenda has wrecked our economy. This economy today is far worse then any time I can remember in my lifetime under his watch, even with a multi billion dollar handout, things continue to get worse, not better under his control.

Obama is a one termer and a gift the the conservative party.

Let him continue his wrongful ways, lie, broken promises and wrecking of our jobs and economy.

He will be the blame for the end of liberals running things in America for many, many years to come.

Thanks for the gift of Obama, the left wing radical marxist from hell.
Did Glen Beck tell you that?

2008 was a fluke.

Everyone on the right knew it was time for a change and the rep ran out the worse contending they had knowing America was ready for a change.

For me, I see it as perfect timing.

Obama and his policies, failures will end liberals running things for a long, long time.

The rep party was smart enough to see this coming and have sit back and watch this idiot ruin this country knowing that 42% of us are conservative minded, 32% are moderate and only 20% liberal.

The dem party will be nil come 2012 thanks to the perfect timing and gift of Obama.

The joke is on the liberals, Obama has just destroyed the entire party and the rep party is just sitting back laughing their butts off at him.

Liberals in America are about to be toasted thanks to the fluke himself Obama.

And to think you could have saved the dem party if you had nominated someone with at least some skills.
Sorry but Bush destroyed the country and Obama has to clean it up.
