    Obama is not the great divider of this country. really? He "works" across the aisle to create jobs. It's not rich vs. poor, Republican vs. Democrat, men vs. women, coal vs. solar - he is "all of the above". He "listens" to good ideas and doesn't cater to any special interest groups? Just which "image" of Obama are they trying to dress him up as?

    Will this administration be able to convince those within his OWN party, who believe we are not better off today than we were four years ago? Is blaming the Republicans, and dividing up voters by race (hispanic) as well as gender, really the best plan to get re-elected? Will the American people believe in a Hope and Change promise that was lost, and award this President four more years? Are fancy speeches alone, enough to re-elect a President without building a new road to an economic recovery for all Americans (not just a promised few)?

    In October, when he attacks Iran, his unemployment problem will vanish and there'll be hundreds of thousands of jobs in government. Whether you want to be drafted or not.

    Change the channel and you might have a clue.

    I know, let's cut taxes on the bloated rich, destroy Medicare and health reform, raise taxes and fees on the nonrich, let corporate cheats run wild, cut aid to states and localities, raise military spending to more than the rest of the world combined, and worry about the debt in 2035. Absolute idiocy, dupes

    Obama's father was a distinguished, accomplished businessman and statesman. Same with his stepfather. His mother's family, accomplished, but not as wealthy or up at the same same ladder of the fathers of her children. The President went to the finest prep shcool in Hawaii. All considered, one might say the President grew up a privileged childhood....one that many of the 1% raise their children.

    The First Lady, his wife, depicted "the real Obama" last night showing up on a date with her to put her in a rusted car where she could see the pavement through the floors while he was pressing the gas, break, and clutch pedals with his feet in shoes in a half size too small.

    Who honestly believes that this real person descriobed by the First Lady could never get some help from the same sources that put him through Hawaii's elite schools OR have her own family throw a brother a couple bucks for some shoes that fit and perhaps go out to the garage for some plywood or down to the hardware store so the future First Lady would not be put in danger riding in a car with no floor boards?

    The same mentality believing this are the same ones waiting to have their mortgage and gas paid for. FOUR MORE YEARS!

    Obama is not a "divider".

    The Republican Party is 90% white and divided from the rest of the nation, clearly.

    Obama has clearly, through Nancy Pelosi, put greater emphasis on Obamacare..... NOT job creation. If he had placed as much effort into job creation (closing the doors, don't allow any Congress person to leave) while he had a Democrat majority, we may not have seen over 10% unemployment afterward.

    If he truely desired for the American people to go back to work, he wouldn't have attacked coal producing states through stricter regulations that make it harder for them to work. He would allow for an oil pipeline to be built. He wouldn't put all his efforts into a Chevy Volt that has to cut production in order to get rid of their extra inventory (even while wasting more taxpayer dollars on something the American people clearly didn't want to buy). This is not an "all of the above" President, this is a "doing this my way, I don't want to have to hear a difference of opinion" President. Rather than work with republicans, he thought it better to demonize them. If it wasn't his "vision" of jobs (Solyndra, US Geothermal, and any other green corp he could throw money at) he wasn't interested. How many refineries, or pipelines has Obama allowed to be built? Look to other resources and not just those who are too fearful at "challenging" the President and his economic job numbers, such as MSNBC or CNN, and you might find the answer.

    :lol: Romney/Ryan have to take time off to practice all the lies they are telling people.
    Lying can really wear you down, it must have been very exhausting for them.

    Obama is scaling down the military. It's highly doubtful that he would ever use military force, he is too fixed on poll numbers to base his decisions. If he was serious about eliminating Iran as a threat through all means necessary, he wouldn't be attacking Republicans for including a military option on the table. No, there will be a nuclear Iran . . . . he will create a some 'diversion' excuse through a well written media speech, with political compromises to allow for it (If he doesn't throw Isreal under the bus first).

    They are trying to fundamentally transform him from the bottom up. It's working about as well as his plans to change this country.

    Michelle sure tried to convince people that they were both poor and struggling, though I thought they were both working as lawyers when they met. And the story about Obama's car and shoes that were too small sounded contrived. Did he spend all his money on his many travels abroad and forget to buy shoes?

    Michelle's dad reportedly made about $50,000 a year back then, which was a lot for that time.

    Why now are they deciding it's time to get to know Obama? Maybe because we still don't know much about him and all we're getting now is a bunch of sob stories that probably aren't any more truthful than the events and people in his book.

    Michelle's claim that Obama sits at night reading through people letters and then telling her that he can't believe how they are hurting and must do something. That was so unbelievable.

    They all came off as mushy and it didn't come across as sincere.

    A yahoo headline this morning said that Clinton is lending Obama his halo and then he'll try not to outshine him. Yea, right.

    The PRyanheads are angry, the Democratic Convention doesn't one half the lard the piles of PRyan had; be thankful there was no fire near that Everest of PRyan, had the RNC PRyans been caught in a fire, the fat alone would have burned into Tampa Bay.
