I think that the economy will be OK later in his first term and he will get credit for trying to get things done. I don't understand why we're still fighting the wars in iraq and afghan however. that is disappointing to me.

I think if the public opinion stays the way it is & he doesn't get his butt in gear, he'll be one term. However, we saw poor approval ratings during Reagan's first term & he turned it around & got a 2nd term. I think Obama can get it turned around & if he does, he'll have a 2nd term.

Because he doesn't agree with Obama, silly. Some really think that a president can be impeached simply because they disagree with him.

Fortunately for us, the founders, who were well aware of the mob power of blind populism, saw folks like that coming 230 years away and ensured impeachment would be reserved for true criminal acts (or sexual witch hunt power grabs masked as moral stances by politicians having their own affairs).

How about apologizing for America, for starters? Using Czars as an accumulation of power to supercede the (laughable) system of checks and balances? Spending taxpayer revenue on flying Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab - a sworn and proven enemy of the state - to New York for a civil trial?

He only has the job because the media manipulated a progressively dumber American sheeple society.

But if you really follow the national pulse, you will see that the tide is turning quickly and that most Americans are sensible and are tired of this incompetent leadership.

Scott Brown would have beat Obama if it would have been a run for the big office, instead of just a senate seat against.

Scott Brown could run in an election tomorrow against Obama and win by a landslide.

Either that or resign.

He is not competent to do the job, that is why.

Why allow a mistake to carry on for 3 more years.

The ideal happening would be to take back the congress and remove his sorry but from our WH.

What I don't get is why is it now UnAmerican to be American? Someone came through our office yesterday collecting for Haiti and I did not give as did anyone else in my particular office. They they had the nerve to ask why we will not donate.

I said quite frankly, I would rather give to someone in my Country who can use the money such as a family that lost their house and now living out of their car or can not afford to feed their children. Then they looked at me and said...................Ready for this???? I am nothing more than a racist. I guess we are not permitted to look out after our own first.

I guess I went a bit off topic, but am still steamed about that.

Okay back to the poll.....Unless Obama pulls a rabit out of his rear end, he is clearly a 1 termer.
