    I don't mean to start a raging debate or anything. I just don't like the guy. I don't like what he's doing. I don't agree with his policies, or any of his programs.
    Please feel free to disagree.

    I think he is a fair president but not the wonderkind everyone expected him to be. Some of his decisions are not strong and not always a good thing. I think he is a wonderful man though.

    My daughter likes the job he's doing. I disagree. For the most part, we're able to debate about it respectfully.
    Time will tell, I suppose.

    I am a fan of Obama the man and of what he brought to the office when he was first elected. I'm a fan of some of his politics and believe him to be a fair and decent President, I think he loves his fellow Americans and genuinely wants the best for each and every citizen. I don't think he has been successful in turning the tide of America's past financial difficulties, though I doubt that he could be in all fairness asked to carry that alone.

    I might have bought that early in his first term because he did, in fairness, inherit a mess. But rather than improve upon it, it's much worse. And, deep into his second term, he's got nobody else to blame.

    I've always known who is for him and against him on this Board. Stephen likes him . . .

    I don't really get into such topics but I will say that what's consider to be 'hard times in the economy' has always been MY LIFE.

    Meaning that my economic status has always been a worry --it's a way of life for me because of my race --no matter how hard I work or how smart I am.

    So, honestly . . .I'm not stressed out because my funds have been cut.

    My funds have been limited from the beginning.

    And when the Financial Institutes told me I could get loans well above my finances --just because I have good credit . . .I was smart enough to tell them to go to hell because I knew that I could not afford such riches. Plus, I don't need that. I only need a comfortable roof. And a car that I know will get me from A to B.

    So, Obama is considered a bad president. What of the others?

    He's hated. I can't change that. I didn't vote for him because he's Black (bi-racial).

    I voted for him because He Had the Best Song and Dance.

    They all do what they feel is right.

    And by the end, they all are hated.

    Some more so from the beginning.

    Obama was hated from the start.

    Nothing new here . . .

    In my opinion he was never given a fair chance to improve upon it, but I doubt that we'll ever be able to agree on that... so I won't belabour the point. :)

    This is true and it's hard to keep faith and to completely trust in anyone anymore. Now my government for instance.... :glare: oh don't get me started on those b'stards.... :biggrin2:

    Walter Oobleck keeps coming back...or going, and going, and going

    We're sitting on the plane, right...heading out to vacation the wife and I...but we're in first class. We didn't pay...our names were drawn out of a hat and our name was picked...along with two or three other couples. I was worried that some of my customers who were also on the flight (I'm self-employed, carpenter) would take a dim view of my location...and...alas, one had that look as he passed through. Another said something about "royalty" as he passed through. I gave it a second and then turned to say, "Hey! This is what happens when you vote for Obama!" A few people chuckled. Onward & upward.

    ...in all fairness, and regardless of the color of his skin-no sitting President is going to get a fair shake considering the mess they must deal with daily...he's had a numnber of colossal flops since taking office, but then again-which Supreme Commander in recent memory hasn't?...I think he's probably a very decent man-swept up in a dirty business...I don't break bread with him, so I cannot judge any further than that...

    I was going to say what I really think instead of dancing all around it, but it's not even worth it. Pro-Obama supporters stick by him till the end and I am outnumbered here.
