I don't think "Republicans" fear a successful President Obama. Not the traditional Republicans. Those who were active in the party before the extremists and racists took control of the GOP party structure. I do think the principal objection to Obama, by the lunatic element in the GOP, is of a black man continuing to sleep in the big bedroom in the White House. A black man in control causes them to shutter.

To call republican racist and to blame George Bush is all Obama has accomplished

I laughed when I read the tread title. What success? Getting people on food stamps or welfare or unemployment? His green agenda was throw away money on electric cars , solar panels and it did not fly and did not create jobs.

You better take off those rose colored glasses the liberal media paints and look at what is happening. Another down grade from AAA now AA-

. Foreclosures by the millions still coming. 23 million people unemployed and many losing their homes. The media has got you fooled .

QE 3 going to print 50 BILLION a month indefinitely... sounds like a long time. And with that our dollar shrinks... don't think OPEC won't notice.. they will know of the shrinking dollar and prices will go up on gas , then food and everything else.. we are getting in worse shape!

Well, being as there is no evidence that Obama "can bring" anything positive, I really am at a loss as to why you think he can bring any in four more years.

The **** storm that Obama has created will be a worse inheritance for the next president, then the one Obama whines about inheriting in 2009.

Neither party plays well in groups. To put things in perspective, Obama's approval rating and Bush's approval rating after one term are roughly the same.
Exactly right. there are many many liberals who still think Carter was a great president.

Perception is everything.

I do believe Carter was a better President than Obama. See, there's that "perception" thing.

I can't wait to see THEM trying to defend those things. Some of them do see all this as success but if it is success they are as socialistic as he is and see what these things do to the country in moving us toward that very thing.
