That idea isn't exactly friendly. But I hope the first thing he does is fix national GUN LAW. I am sick of state laws that infringe where and what i can do armed.

Living in NH is like living behind the Iron Curtain. Mr. Romney Tear down that WALL!

Oh STOP IT Mac! It wasn't Obama, it was Barbara Walters. And it was back in 1999. The most recent version I got of that chestnut is that Barbara Walters was condemning Barack Obama for wanting to honor Jane Fonda as on of the 100 Women of the Year. And the email came from the same guy who had sent me the previous version of the same BS.

Good question! IF Obama is re-elected: All of the following have come out of Obama's own mouth, the Federal Reserve or predicted by the GOA: Higher taxes for all, including the middle class. High unemployment continuing through at least 2013. The panels will be in place to decide what will and will not be covered. No one knows the extent the panels will go since no one really knows how Obamacare will be implemented, but the rules will change as it goes into 2014.

Cap and trade will be in place, causing very high electricity bills for Americans. Recession in 2013. More of the Muslim Brotherhood will be visiting the Whitehouse. Continuing foreclosures. All coal mines shut down in order for Obama to keep his promise to the EPA. Sweeping amnesty for all illegal immigrants and their families who will come to join them. No budget will be passed and implemented for 2013, and probably 2014.

Very senior citizens will try to learn to live on pain medication since Obama said they would no longer get important surgeries such as pacemakers and would be given a pain pill instead. End of life care will take on a different meaning--to a level we don't yet know. They'll sure be getting free colonoscopies, though, if what Biden is saying is true.

My own thoughts: In about one year, possibly into the second, bumper stickers will come out that say, "Don't Blame Me, I Voted For Romney." Americans will put even more Republicans into the House and Senate. Obama will have an extremely low approval rating, but will be playing lots of golf. To be fair, most Presidents have lower approval ratings in the second term.

We will likely experience at least one or two more credit downgrades. Obama said $9 Trillion in debt was un-American in 2008. Somehow, this level will be acceptable to Obama and his ardent supporters.

ALexus will start posting in 2015 that Obama should change the Constitution and be made King, and that we will all enjoy his kingdom.

Well you know i ain't gittin any younger. I seem to tend to forgit things but i won't forget Jane or her daddy over on that Golden Pond!

I recall Barbara, but i can't recall her french persuasion, or what esle she thought. I am not over fond of that Dianne Sawyer much though as she is getting to be kinda red around the edges and I don't mean any repub red either. To be clear she seems a bit too fond of the Obana feller to suit me.

For this Govt we have a let of war dead that get no respect... Don't take my word for it of course but ask Joe Biden who he has allowed to fill in his land fill over in Delaware!

IMO this govt isn't worth the loss of one of our boys at the point we have come to.

I had the idea Obana was going to get us all home and out of Afghanistan........ i see that isn't a high priority of his over a good game of golf any way any more.

It causes me to wonder if he will ever get the jist of what the job of President IS, and he ain't got it yet.

I think he should have spent more time in Africa being a gun bearer for a white man, so he could have had some more education on what would be expected as a laborer in a job which even being the pres is... I mean one must at least be able to master a solemn look on one's face in the presence of the Queen and not be bending over that way tryin' to up skirt her!
That was shocking!

How we ever managed to elect a Jr Sentator no one ever heard of with only 176 days in his new office is well past my ability to fathom. But even before that all happened i could see plain off it was gonna be nuthin'; but trouble.

Why that lad ain't hardly old enough to know who jane was..... I find it too bad he was ever exposed to 'mousey tongue' (go search that! LOL )

Of course, blame in on the Republicans...Obama is the POTUS, the boss...he needs to learn to work with (R) and man-up! Instead he blames everyone else, when he should be taking responsibility. He even stated, if I do fix thinks--knowing he was inheriting a mess--he would be a one-term president! Farewell, Obama!!!
