    Obama's losing me quickly. While I think the right is not giving him enough credit on Bin Laden, his refusal to make significant budget cuts and kissing union ass have gotten way out of control.

    I'm not crazy about any of the GOPers, but even a dud like Romney would be better than this.

    On budget cuts, first Obama said it wouldn't bring prosperity, then his administration said it was immoral. Yet piling on the deficit didn't bring prosperity either and it's even more immoral.

    And this nonsense of telling Boeing they can't hire in right-to-work states is just payback to the unions who are doing all they can to restrain American competitiveness. Not to mention the atrocious re-writing of the Labor Management and Reporting Act.

    I favor bringing back Clinton's 39.6 rate on the highest earners, so I'm not with the GOP's light taxation plan. But this is just going overboard with a refusal to cut while kissing union butt.

    Welcome.

    Some of us tried to warn you that Obama was not the fiscal Conservative and political Moderate he pretended to be when he campaigned across our 57 states in 2008. Sometimes we have to learn the hard way.

    All of FDR Labor laws need to be repealed. All of them.

    The problem is seldom deciding who NOT to vote for.

    The problem if finding somebody that you WANT to vote for.

    It is nothing short of amazing to me that otherwise intelligent people were taken in by the media hype. Even someone as sophisticated as Peggy Noonan was rapturous about Obama.
    I would hope this would be a lesson for the future but I doubt it.

    Peggy Noonan's stock went way down.

    How could anybody vote for a liar like Obama again? This idiot has done more to ruin America than any person in the history of the country.

    Not giving him 'enough credit on Bin Laden'? What are we supposed to do? Get on our knees and say 'thanks for green lighting the plan'? Cuz that's all he did. Had he gone to Pakistan and shot the man himself, hell even I would have called him a warrior. But all he did was act in accordance with his office - which is what we pay him to do.

    And... let's not overlook one small - yet significant point.... Had he needed to stay in Afghanistan, Bin Laden would still be alive... the only reason he's dead is because it was politically expedient for Obama.

    I would argue that conclusion.... and he is, in truth, no more a liar than the rest of 'em. I'd like it Americans would wise up to politicians - on both sides - and see them for what they are... corrupt, self serving, bastards.

    I'm with California Girl on giving Obama credit for getting bin Laden. He OKd a plan, it worked, the creep is dead. Don't know anyone regardless of their political leanings who doesn't think that was a good outcome, so what other "credit" is he due?
