I agree Obama has screwed up big time. In 2012, I will not vote for him, however, if the republicans insist on a moron like Bachmann, Palin, etc, I will have to vote libertarian or green or something.
Obama is a HUGE problem but so are the right wing radicals (tea party).
A lot of us had to vote for the lesser of two evils in 2008. I would have voted for McCain, but with Palin on the ticket, no way! So I voted for Obama.
I do not see the republicans getting smart about it. Does the GOP really think that a moron, backwards person like Bachmann can win? She won't even carry her own state of MN.
God help us all in 2012, Obama is awful, let's hope the GOP puts a good candidate to run against him, or that the democrats decide that perhaps supporting another candidate rather than incumbent Obama is the way go go.

All I knopw is that there isnt any water left in the bird baths, the bird feeders are empty, and the pigeons are coming home to a vacant roost. We need to dismantle everything. Start afresh. Next time around no more funding of planned parenthood clinics.

All these are obviously fictitious posters, bought and paid for by the democrat party, to make people think that republicans are all dumb. Trust me, we are not as dumb as these imposters have been paid to suggest.

cholo, even if you take the easy out and blame Bush or everyone else (except obama) for the state of things in this country now, you can't honestly be happy with the way things are headed and think 4 more years of the same failed amateur 'leadership' will solve this depression. I know it's easy to divert or deflect, as obama has done constantly (blaiming ATM machines, the Arab spring, global warming, underinfalted tires, the Tea Party, etc.); but when it comes time to man up (actually, it's way past that time) obama is not up to the task. Heck, he spoke yesterday and the stock market immediately dropped an additional 250 points. It's because he offers no leadership, no plans, no enthusiasm, does not respect our national exceptionalism (in fact, apologizes for it) and it's time he moved on (.org)

"If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you weren't a racist... you better vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you aren't an idiot!
PALIN/BACHMAN - 2012"
If you vote for Palin/Bachman, then you will prove to be just as much of an idiot as they are! There is something to be said about going from the frying pan (where we are with Obama) to the fire (where we would be with the idiots the tea party supports)

Readical said: "If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you weren't a racist... you better vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you aren't an idiot."
Actually, unclehomer didn't invent that quip. I've read that same statement several times on various forums. Apparently, a lot of right-wingers think that there is something clever or witty about it, so when they read it they feel co prepped to use it themselves. But, no, there's nothing remotely clever or witty about the statement. Also, the sudden injection of race into the statement is also more than a little bit awkward. It shows that the person who uses the statement has sone "issues" with race when it comes to dealing with other people.

Sam.. you couldn't be ronger [sic]. [did that to make you slow down and let it sink in]
Why don't you just say something that contributes to the discussion, rather than attacking the messengers????
I passed on the comment.. never claimed to have originated it. As a matter of fact, it came to me in 2 different forms in 2 different emails, and from 2 different people in 2 different parts of the country. I agreed with it enough to pass it on.. I hope others do too!
As for racism.. [dare I?], it's the liberals, and democrats who throw around the 'racism' charge. Try to say Obumma plays too much golf and see what comes back!

Unclehomer said: "Why don't you just say something that contributes to the discussion, rather than attacking the messengers????"
What? Unclehomer, you're now attempting to take the moral high-road? You? After posting a humorless, race baiting quip about the motivation of other voters such as myself in the last Presidential election?
I've got a suggestion for you: Why don't you just leave the issue of race entirely out of the discussion? I didn't bring it up here. You did.
Posted by steve, a resident of the Parkside neighborhood, on Aug 10, 2011 at 9:26 am
Sam, glad you're taking the high road. You seem to be one of the few left of center folks who will, since most of the racial incitement these days is coming from leftists who claim any criticism of obama is because he's half black. This totally ignores the fact that you can disagree with his failed policies and lack of leadership without bringing up his Kenyan lineage.
Personally, I believe his half white side is responsible for 100% of his attempts to bring the country to it's knees.

Sick and not funny, Steve. You do realize that this is why you can't keep a job? Your race-based hatred and confusion is spilling out all over the floor and it is not a pretty picture. As Cholo has rightly suggested, you need help.
Posted by steve, a resident of the Parkside neighborhood, on Aug 10, 2011 at 2:22 pm
resident, thanks again for once again proving the vacuousness of the left and their inability to debate, hence the lazy habit of descending into personal attacks. Back at ya, since this is how you like to converse.
I'm actually responding to your mindless rant from my desk at work. No need to thank me for supporting slothes like you with my employment taxes. Maybe the state can buy you a sense of humor with your next entitlement payout. Share it with Cholo, would you? Glad to see you're holding him up as an example......OK, back to work. Someone has to pay for your lobotomy.

Morris @ "I actually think that Obama should be investigated and if necessary tried for crimes against the economy."
I'm wondering just what "crimes against the economy" might be, and what prison terms they might carry upon conviction. Assault and battery upon interest rates! (10 years) Murder of treasury notes. (20 years) Libel of stock options. (25 years) Ridicule of offshore bank accounts. (Life!)
Posted by Byron, a resident of the Downtown neighborhood, on Aug 11, 2011 at 6:42 am
I agree with Morris and he should go to prison for economic terrorism. Obamacare and its burden on small business owners, taxpayers etc. expanding the wars in Iraqi (already won before he took office), Afghanistan, incursions in Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, and allowing Iran to develop nuclear weapons, not protecting the borders of this country, allowing the Fort Hood murders and then not calling it an act of terror, spending 4.1 billion a day since he got into office, 9.2% unemployment, 18% if you count those without jobs not even looking anymore, debt of 14 trillion and now going to 16 trillion................Wow! his level of incompetence is beyong imagination.
Posted by Don't Stop, a resident of the Amador Estates neighborhood, on Aug 11, 2011 at 7:05 am
Byron, et. al,
Please don't stop with Obama. McNerney and other Congressional Democrats are also very complicit in offenses against American citizens.
They are enslaving our children and future generations in obscene debt which is tantamount to fiscal child abuse. Further, they all took oaths to abide by the US Constitution, yet they make every attempt possible to destroy it (e.g. thru Obamacare, etc.)
Posted by Rick, a resident of the Downtown neighborhood, on Aug 13, 2011 at 10:14 am
Back to intelligent thought and the original question. Of course it is the most disasterous presidency in american history and this is coming from someone who voted for him. I guess when we look at it objectively there was nor is any reason to expect him to be effective with him being so lacking in capability or experience. Compound this with the fact that he surrounded himself with Chicago cronies and it was doomed to be a failure. No, I for one will not vote for him again and hope that either the democrats run someone against him for without that I will have to vote for the republican offering in order to save this once wonderful nation.

Michelle Bat-Droppings Crazy Bachman just won the Eyewa straw poll. Ron Pauly Peanuts, the guy who thinks bringing back segregated drinking fountains is a good thing (freedom) but govt prohibitions against women's right to choose is also a good thing (he hates women as much as he hates blacks), came in second. Ron Pawlenty More Peanuts where they came from, the guy who bravely distinguishes himself by being for what every other idjit republican supports, came in a distant third. RoboRom didn't bother with the poll because he was too busy getting his picture taken.
I sat out the last election. This next one? Obama is the only sane candidate out there. He'll have my vote.
Posted by Yet Another Commentator, a resident of the Parkside neighborhood, on Aug 13, 2011 at 11:17 pm
Do not underestimate Michelle Bachmann. The Hayseed Poll gives her momentium as she'pl face off with Perry in South Caroline for the White Dicksee Confederat Enslave-Blacks-Don't-Enslave-Our-Chillen-To-Debt.
As a Prowd Republican I couldn't be happier with this feeld of canadates. We always feeld good ones. Nixon I am not a crook. The genius Ford. The Alziemers guy with the chimp. The bushies. The pineapple guy with the theme of returning to the 50s. John "Ace" McCain. When the GOP message is clear, it always brings out the beswt and the brightness of the pardy.
Posted by Gwen, a resident of the Castlewood Heights neighborhood, on Aug 14, 2011 at 11:36 am
Still palenty of time for the intellectual wing of the GOP to come in and fly. We haven't heard from Trafficante yet; and Palins grifting has got to end soon becuase she was never in it for the money was she?
What is surprising to me is that nobody is talking about John McCain. He did a great job in 2008 and I'd vote for anybody accept Obummer. How about a McCain/Bachmann ticket this time around?
Posted by No way!, a resident of the Another Pleasanton neighborhood neighborhood, on Aug 14, 2011 at 12:20 pm
"How about a McCain/Bachmann ticket this time around?"
Yikes! The reason McCain lost was because he chose Palin as running mate. Bachmann is similar to Palin except a bit more educated, but...
I suppose if you want clueless Obama to win again, then push for Bachmann, otherwise, start supporting competent candidates who can actually win the independent vote. btw, McCain is OLDER now than in 2008, and having a moron for a running mate would be an issue again, not to mention that McCain is a joke these days.
Posted by No way, a resident of the Another Pleasanton neighborhood neighborhood, on Aug 14, 2011 at 12:28 pm
The problem in 2012 will be that again, the registered republicans will decide who runs against Obama. That will leave us independents with poor choices unless the republicans stop listening to the tea party and stop trying to win the "base."
Earth to GOP: the crazy right wing folks who support morons like Palin and Bachmann will vote republican no matter what, so focus on a candidate that can actually win the independent vote (ie, a smart individual who is not going to set women's rights back hundreds of years)
I do not want to vote for Obama again in 2012, but I cannot possibly support a moron like Bachmann or someone like Perry. Romney is looking pretty good compared to all the GOP choices, and that is scary!
Posted by Gandalf, a resident of the California Reflections neighborhood, on Aug 14, 2011 at 12:37 pm
Well, there you have it NO WAY!
Because you've taken yourself over to the dark side, you wind up comparing Bachmann's education with Palin's. Bachmann: B.A. from a sub-mediocre Winona State University (quick anyone know where that is?). Then Bachmann 'earned' a law degree from Oral Roberts, which isn't a degree in law but rather one of indoctrination. Did you ever in your sane moments think you'd be comparing the merits of Palin's against Bachmann's educational records?
And so what have you got? The Mormon used-car salesman, whose business achievements were largely confined to buying companies and decapitating their workers? By your own admission Romney is scary. This is what you're left with after going over to the dark side.
Posted by Rick, a resident of the Downtown neighborhood, on Aug 14, 2011 at 3:40 pm
Lots of real indepth comments from the left wing group here and no name calling either ....not! I think that anyone has a chance against Obama because his record or lack of a good record speaks for itself. It will be interesting to see how he runs his re election and what accomplishes he chooses to run on. Talking bad about others or making excuses is not much of a hand. He seems to be most afraid of Perry and Obama continues to be the "great divider". Good luck to him but is in deep do do. I think most interesting is that some in the left and some in the media are leaving him because he is willing to throw anyone under the bus in order to get re elected so that he is not embarrassed like his mentor Jimmy Carter
Posted by Gandalf, a resident of the California Reflections neighborhood, on Aug 14, 2011 at 7:17 pm
Another set of strong comments from Rick, which must have taken 3 hours to compose. Thinks Obama is going to have a difficult time with Perry because of Obama's list of 'accomplishes'. Texas, most polluted state in the nation. Texas, more jobettes than anywhere in the nation. Texas, one of lowest educational levels in the nation. Texas, home of dumb gubners. Perry: Don't ask me for help, it's all in God's hands. Perry: If ya ask me I think we should secede. Perry: Our nation's God is a christian evangelical god, which means if you're jewish, muslim, hindu, buddhist, athiest, or antitheist, you're not welcome.
Educational bona fides? Anubber C- student who couldn't score higher than a D in his economics class. Yep, pardner, just the guy we want fer presdent of these here Eeeunited States. He "speaks" to Rick and those of his ilk.
So, like I said, NO WAY ... look at Rick's birdbrain remarks. That's the GOP for ye. Ready yet to come over from the dark side?
Posted by No way, a resident of the Another Pleasanton neighborhood neighborhood, on Aug 14, 2011 at 8:16 pm
I am not sure I understand your position. As for Bachmann, yes, her educational qualifications are not good but certainly better than Palin's, and they are both tea party morons who cannot possibly win an election. I guarantee that if Bachmann actually gets the GOP nomination, she would not be able to carry her own state of MN.
That said, Obama is awful! I voted for him in 2008 but cannot support him in 2012.
What do you consider the dark side? Under Obama we are already in pretty bad shape, and it can only get worse with a tea party moron. We are in bad shape, that is for sure.
If scary Romney were to run against clueless Obama, Romney would have my vote, and that is very scary, isn't it? But Obama screwed up big time and continues doing so. If we have a tea party moron vs. Obama, then I guess I'll have to throw my vote away since I could not possibly support Obama or a tea party candidate.
Posted by Rick, a resident of the Another Pleasanton neighborhood neighborhood, on Aug 15, 2011 at 6:54 am
For one I am glad that the republicans did not give Obama a blank check because he is completely clueless and has not idea what he is doing. I would like for someone to name one POSITIVE accomplishment he has made, just one. This morning his approval has dropped to an all time low of 39%
Posted by David, a resident of the Birdland neighborhood, on Aug 15, 2011 at 8:00 am
Rick, they seem not to understand that you cannot spend your way out of debt. If our President and the democrats had listened to the tea party members and did the "cut, cap, and balance" bill we would not have lost our credit rating. Standard and Poors wanted 4 trillion debt reduction not this mess that Obama tried to put through. Here is a way that even the smallest minded person can understand.
"I'm just sending this to the most sophisticated thinkers I know!
I LIKE THIS LOGIC!
If you can answer this correctly, you can answer the question on what action to take on raising the Federal debt ceiling.
You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup and you have sewage up to your ceilings.
What do you do……raise the ceilings, or pump out the crap?"
