    "Shake Your Tail Feather's" Obama. He's got personality and makes ya laugh every time doesn't he ! Now he's singing the Blues Brother's ! Ha and ya can't help but like him no matter how angry he makes ya sometimes with all the decisions he's up there making ya don't like. The Horse Slaughtering for human consumption has got to go and get the jobs back in the USA ! How much money is the US sending Europe and keep your eye on Geithner and that WEF ! Baby don't ya want to go...? Where and show the people your economic map Obama and the compromise on policy with those GOP's.Why is politics so mean ? Twist on Obama and rock and roll ! Sometimes I can't help but love him but he's a character if we've ever elected one and I had to laugh hearing him sing the Blues Brother's . God Bless our elected officials and the US citizens that fuss with them every chance they can. All Voices Count In America and don't you forget it !

    Obama will win landslide victory for lot of reasons, this time. No need to get robo calls, no need to send false DVDs by republicans just like last time. People know what Obama stands for. He is doing very good for this nation. This nation is long overdue for Energy-Efficiency, and Health care reform and STOCK Act, Fin. reg. reform, I can go on, and on, and on....

    President Obama miss judge how GOP was going to go against him at all cost he held out his hand in friend ship and got back the tea party. Now with GOP looking like clowns, telling you what you hear and see is not true, only Bush got away with that. When people see he fighting for their benefits instead of trying to cut them, he also all took strong action on Iraq to end war there and bringing an end to Afghanistan war, and the economic slowing getting better, just ask the car industry, He will be very strong around election time

    As he should be, what he was able to accomplish in 4 years none of the other candidates will ever be able to compare to. Then these Bosos don't have any ideas, policies, or direction that they can clearly take the country. The Pres. should be up by 70 or 80 percent. As a leader I would never want to run on the hopes that America gets Worse.......that just shows how selfish you are to wish for the failure of an entire country just so you and your party can be in charge. Let the other party be in charge, as long as America is living up to its aspirations.

    Truly doesn't surprise me. Has anyone really heard of a constructive or any plan that any Reublican candidate has put forth? Their idea to the nomination and becoming President is to argue how bad the other fellow is – nothing positive – very sad.

      Here is a perfect example of someone whose entire reality is warped by the main stream media. Obama took office blaming and complaining. He had 2 full years of Democrat control of the House and Senate. He could have passed anything he wanted to fix the economy without needing 1 republican vote. So don't blame republicans for Obama's failures. He is totally responsible for the $4 gas prices and the 5 trillion in addtional national debt he spent. He is now at a point where even the Democrats in Congress won't vote for his plans. They have a chance right now to vote for his budget but Harry Reid won't bring up for a vote. WHY, why, why re-elect a man who has lost all respect from his most valuable allies in the House and Senate? Blame, blame, blame the Republicans but in reality, it's all Obama's fault.

        since when does the president set price for gas , neither the deficit or limtiation in gas exploration has done anything to affect the retail price at the pump. the fact is the refineries are cutting back on producton because there is less demand for it in US . Price per barrel is set by wall street which is looking at global demand rather then US demand, . you whould not hear of any oil company trying to explore for gas iif it went below 2.00 dollars or any pipe line being constructed for that matter. as for 5 trillion in defecit do you one have any idea exactly where the money was spent and what the alternates solutions and cost it would have on the economy.Stop forming opinions without being more informed. As for the green energy , please look out side US especially china and brazil ,if we don't get the ball rolling we will be left behind , no program is going to be 100% perfect and you will have failures and set backs but if we persist we coulld have a new structure and industy set up which could be the engine of growth for the next 30 years. America is no 1 because of innovation we wont get anywhere if we stay dependent on oil and nothing comes free. Maybe the current gas prices is a blessing for a second ecomomic boom.
