    Mr. President, you are no longer involved in community affairs.
    Your job is now national/global affairs. It is not your place to make comments or take sides in state affairs. You should have learned this from the Beer summit when you stuck your Presidential foot in your mouth, making comments on a situation where you did not know the details.
    The Wisconsin affair, is just that - a problem happening in Wisconsin that you neither have the jurisdiction or the position to make comments one way or the other.

    Presidents before you when asked their opinion on a state matter, always followed with "that is a matter for "state X to deal with...next question".

    Mind you own business, respectfully.

    Thanks for that. I'm putting together my weekly email to POTUS as we speak. Very useful input.

    Good point, but Obama will continue to act 'stupidly'. That's all he knows. So why again is his approval rating around 50%? That number better be majorly over-inflated or America has some serious problems with the electorate.

    He had to take the side of the union's because they contributed millions of dollars to his last campaign and he wants them to do it again when he runs for 2012.

    Obama is only President for SOME of the people, NOT ALL. His allegiance is with the Union Community agitators. The more chaos the more the (never let a GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE) we will get from this administration.

    people better brace themselves for what's coming this summer. It's only going to get worse folks.

    stand tall, don't cave. we need to bust up these Union THUGS and throw Obama out with them.

    Note to naive post-man/woman -- The President is asked to comment on everything from who will win the Super Bowl to any issue that rises to the level of some sort of state or national debate. It does not matter if it is about the wrestler who would not take on a female or a shooting or a race incident or a wacky bill in some local legislature or even soemthing that is going on in Wisconsin. He is the President of all 50 states and all of its citizens that serve ice cream or serve in the military or serve as a state representative.
    He has the juristiction, the right, the obligation, the point of view and any other freakin' thing he wants when it comes to making a comment on a situation.
    If he chooses to answer as it is ASSUMED previous presidents have with the "it is up to the state" answer, so be it. If he chooses to speak out on the issue so be it.

    How about you mind our business when it comes to where you think presidential boundries lie. You mind your business by not telling the president how to answer any question or respond to any query. And don't ever think that the president will back off when asked about soemthing like that, because in this day and age until the media (mainstream, local, web-based or whatever) gets an answer to the Q's the answer, then lacking an answer or trying to avoid answering becomes a story unto itself.

    And btw the way would have said that about any president in any era. Would have even said it to defend the massively low IQ'd George "the doofus" Bush. Any Prez can go wherever he chooses -- right or wrong.

    How about you move to Venezuela where citizens "mind their own business" and don't speak out against what the President says.
