    I think that Obama has done most of the direct damage he could do to the country.

    The worst thing I can think that he would be able to do in the next four years would be appoint more supreme court justices.

    Of course he might be able to manage more damage if his reelection is taken as a progressive mandate but I don't think it will be - and I trust that our GOP representatives would continue their efforts to rein him in, in accordance with the will of their constituents.

    There is still the possible problem of other countries perceiving us as weak militarily.

    But mostly it's the supreme court I worry about.

    I got news for you, Obama could easily end up sitting on the supreme court one day.

    I think that no matter who is elected, the coming Congress will not be as productive as Obama's first Congress. However, there are certain pieces of legislation, such as continued spending, which will certainly be passed, and those will be different under Obama than under Romney. There are also an enormous number of federal agencies, civilian and military, that are subject to presidential control. Certainly major legislation and Supreme Court appointments are very important, but the presidency would still be of enormous consequence even stripped of its powers in those areas.

    My point is that righties don't seem to be able to separate the REAL Obama from their FICTIONAL Obama.

    Gee, Lakhota...since so much of what Barack Obama was supposed to be is fiction...is that so hard to understand? What none of you progressive diehards will ever admit is the man is a facade. It's that first impression of a polished speaker followed by a growing awareness that he's not that intelligent nor does he have any executive skills whatsoever or the ability to bring different sides together to reach a workable solution.

    The thing that has separated the REAL Obama from the FICTIONAL Obama is having to sit in the Oval Office and do the job of being President...something he's failed at miserably. Yet all of you want to give him another four years to further prove that he can't handle the job. It's rather remarkable to watch.
