Not only is the US going up in flames - with those citizens who have the mental capacity to see right through this scam being locked up in concentration camps, but we will also be subjected to a new, One-World government that will rule with an iron fist, take away all of our freedoms, and condemn us to serve an alien master race.

The End is near, I tell you. It's coming.
Glad to hear it.

I don't see it.
The article may not have mentioned that Obama is a bungling idiot, but anyone with an average IQ or higher wouldn't need anything to point that out for them.

At least you've demonstrated that you can read.

Yes, except in California. Since it's a liberal cesspool, they'll have pot and pole dancing.

Anywhere else, it's beer pong.

It's an impressive (albeit sad and scary) glimpse into a paranoid mind. I know you don't realize this, Sity, but if this is how you truly feel, you should seek some counseling since this is certainly not an adaptive way to live one's life.

You know he and the democrats have been arguing for tighter regulation of banks, which probably would have prevented the kind of rogue trading that resulted in a $2 billion dollar surprise loss for JP Morgan just this past week - but the big banks that own Washington and the republican party are fighting it tooth and nail.

I get people had high expectations for this president. I did, too. I'm disappointed that we haven't made more progress than we have already. I think it was a mistake politically for Obama to spend so much time and energy on the healthcare debate; it was an example of Obama being well-intended but a bit naive, politically. But overall, I'll still take him without hesitation over a guy who basically boasts about his time as a private equity group investor whose job is essentially to cut jobs in order to make executives profit in spite of their poor decision making.

Furthermore, I think there's a lot to point to in terms of accomplishments. We *do* have 2 years of solid jobs growth. We do have stock market gains. We do have economic stability. It's unfortunately not enough to convince a lot of people that we're better off because the economic effects of the 2008 crash and credit freeze were so widespread and so deep that the impact was inevitably deep and recovery was inevitably going to be a long process all along.

It's easy to be upset and to assume that the guy in charge right now is at fault and that making a change will be better. Don't assume that. Think about the kind of people you're considering putting back into power. You're going to vote in the same sort of people who voted for a war that wasted trillions of dollars; who have enacted policies that threaten the financial solvency of medicare; and who generally favor economic growth and profits over financial stability and employment. If you're a Wall Street banker or a Fortune 500 CEO or an aspiring executive, well, then I get why you'd vote for that -- it's in your interests to do so. But if you're basically like most of us and just want a decent place to work, grow old, and retire, then voting for republicans is voting against your own interests, and the interests of everyone else. And you won't realize that until it's too late.
Well said.

From Europe to the middle east to Africa they are all "disappointed" according to this article.

Only thing that matters is what folks here think and they aren't too happy. So swoon away sheep because your time is running out.

But the Democrat still enjoys broad international support. In large part, it's because of unfavorable memories of his Republican predecessor, George W. Bush, and many people would still prefer Obama over his presumptive Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.

Obama may be a phony, but he's a real phony.

If he purchased his house 10 years ago he shouldn't have to do a short sale unless he did a refinance or two, three, etc.
Now back to the topic.
