    I don't think this man understands reality at all.
    I listened to him on his first campaign trail last week and he said that he wants to live in a society that is fair.
    Life is NOT FAIR OBAMA.
    We will never have a society that is fair. Not as long as there is greed and evil in this world.
    When he said this, it told me that he has book intelligence but no common sense.
    Why would any American want to re elect this man who's ideology doesn't work in the real world?
    PLEASE DON"T BE STUPID AMERICA AND BUY IN TO HIS PIE IN THE SKY IDEAS
    DON'T REELECT HIM!
    His philosophy will never work and it will turn us into a 3rd world nation. :evil:

    He said he wants to live a society that is fair, and you take issue with that?

    Would you prefer to live in a society that is unfair?

    She appears to struggle with anything beyond bumper sticker logic...

    The reality is, life isn't fair. Would you rather live in reality?

    We ALL live in reality. However, to do so, without hoping for better, is pretty sad. Just my .02.

    Yes I do take issue with it
    That is my point
    Life itself is unfair.
    We will never live in a society that is fair.
    Society will always be unfair to some degree. We can strive for a better life and work on our problems but we will never be able to wipe out greed and evil from some people.

    Indeed, life is not fair.

    If I had a preference, I would prefer to live in a fair world. in light of that, I would prefer policies that create more fairness to policies that create less fairness.

    Perhaps you would prefer the opposite?

    Hoping for better is good, hoping for the impossible is foolish.

    Seriously, do you actually think that there will ever be a fair society? With all the class warfare, racism etc... that exists. I think your living in fantasy land. What may be fair to you does not mean other will feel the same way. There will always be envy, animosity, jealousy etc.. in a country with 300+ million people.

    Wise up!

    So you agree with the president that we should strive for a better life and work on our problems?

    <Ya know, things like "leveling the playing field">

    The president said he would prefer to live a fair society. It's amazing that the rightwing has become so tied up in its own rhetoric that it would argue against striving towards a more fair society in order to preserve a less fair one.
