    Couldn't change Washington from the inside

    Couldn't keep his promises even though he had congress for two years

    Couldn't answer the question about security in Libya without blaming a random YouTube vid

    Too bad you guys are running such a weak candidate, it sounds like anyone should be able to beat him.

    You may be right but it doesn't change what a terrible job Obama has done.

    You know life is bad in the political world when Honey Boo Boo can kick your ass in ratings. Like she did with Clinton and Romney.

    We get it. We're conservatives going, omg, honey boo boo kicked our ass.

    Libs go, honey boo boo kicked Clinton's ass and I bet honey boo boo's grandmother voted for Bush.

    Libs also go, don't put Obama up against Honey boo boo. :lmao:

    "Yes we can" was always a statement about the importance and possibilities of grassroots organizing. That progress isn't about one man but about millions of voices demanding to be heard was a theme of Obama's '08 campaign.

    Throughout that campaign his words, usually derided on the right (e.g. "We're the ones we've been waiting for"), were about empowerment of individuals and the masses though engagement in the political process, not some Great Man theory of history. That's the same theme he's sounding now. See his convention speech last month:

    It's interesting that his consistency befuddles folks.

    What a bunch of nonsense. If being in poverty is being empowered then I guess Obama succeeded. The man has empowered no one but illegals and some of our mortal enemies. He made you think electing him gave you power. That makes him pretty clever and you pretty dumb.

    I'm trying to help you because you seem incapable of understanding what he's saying (and been saying for five or six years). He has a very particular theory of politics and political change, and he has a very particular message that he brings to the public that's rooted in that conception of change. And he's been consistent in his presentation of those views and that message.

    You don't have to agree with it but you also don't need to be confused by it. I fear Romney is giving his supporters a false sense than no politician believes things or has a coherent message to present to voters simply because Mitt doesn't.

    I don't care what Obama believes. His actions speak for themselves. And your attempt to turn this into a Romney discussion is a failure. This thread is about Obama's words and all his excuses
