He'd have to get elected through one of the parties then drop the party.

I am not going to worry about it. I don't think there will be a USA in 4 more years.

We are getting too close to thinking we are a democracy. Any change we can make happens in 20 months. So, citizens need to sit back and trust Dear Leader.

Meaning: quit pestering the guy to make laws and let the man golf. Every time you call him off a boogie board to address your whining he has to see Michelle who ruined the kitchen staff with rabbit food. Barry is lonely in that house, I mean, BO hasn't been seen for months, and Biden isn't exactly a good replacement best friend for a sophisticate like Obama. Being pissed doesn't help him do his job. Having him not do his job, destroy America, is a much better plan.

I keep hearing that but the truth is, America was lost way back under Wilson. I suggest reading the history of his presidency and being amazed at what an absolute puppet the guy was. After you do that, read his letter of regret.

The parties have to disappear. Let the people run on their own Merritt's and accomplishments. No more buying elections!

The Republican party has far bigger problems than just the "tyrant" Obama. The Tea Party is the greatest threat to the GOP right now - it has turned the once reasonable GOP into a laughing stock of the world with its extreme right wing policies. The fact that the Tea Party factions forced Republicans to make fun of Canada, China, Europe, the Arab world etc means that the GOP is not only detested at home, it hardly has any friends left in the world either. The Tea Party needs to go and then the GOP can get some sanity. Right now Obama has it so easy that he just has to point to the Tea Party antics and voila! he seems automatically far far superior.

I thought about that as well If the refuticans give Obama hell I can imagine what they AND the dumbocrats would have done to Ron Paul

Explain what's insane to you about the principles the tea party was founded on? How is liberty and peace an extremist movement?

The new tea party, the one overtaken by Fox News and the GOP is the one I view as extremist.

Not to mention the media crucifying him all the way through to try and effect his approval rating.... or even fake it.
