President Obama: You Do Not Get It

Cutting the energy assistance fund for low income households?

A public spending freeze to 2008 levels?

Stabbing your base in the back?

Punishing the poor for being poor?

And all to curry favor with people who will never, ever like you?

A political party that denounces government intervention in the same breath it votes to let corporations control what everyone does on the internet?

A political party that blocked the Consumer Products Safety Commission from making a public database of computer complaints?

A political party where, according to a recent poll, 51% of the registered voters aren't even sure you were actually born in America?

A political party that could beat you in 2012 no matter who they ran? In a Gallup poll last week, results showed that the decision between Obama and a generic Republican candidate is split 45% to 45%. I sure as shit hope we aren't looking at President Boehner in a couple of years.

Are you aware, sir, that the same poll showed that only 51% of 18-34 year-olds and 43% of 35-54 year-olds would vote to re-elect you?

I will not be one of them.

Frankly, I regret voting for you the first time. I regret the lack of alternative parties with any power in this nation.

I regret you.

You may be a smart man, but you have no spine.

Obama was never the great Liberal hope, he was & is a DNC triangulist like the Clintons.

We need a leader like FDR (who wasn't all that either)but a lot better than Obama.

Also notice it took Obama & the Democrats months to get anything done while the republicans just charge ahead.

I will take a big slice of not getting it done fast as opposed to getting it all done wrong.

Well, enjoy your meal, because you're getting both.

Well, for me, it'll be depending on who runs against him - there are a fistful of candidates that I can't imagine could win the nomination (but look at the GOP VP candidate in '08) that I would be forced to vote against - Gingrich, Barbour, Santorum, Mike what's his face from Indiana, Palin, of course - if only because the GOP picking Supreme Court nomineees is too high a price to pay.
