He is withdrawing the troops. I think getting them out of a warzone is helpful. You can disagree with his policies as that is always good to question authority. This helps to push them to do better. He extended the unemployment benefits which gave millions of Americans a break during an economic crisis. True, he has not done as much as I would like him to do. But you must remember he is only one out of three branches of government. I want him to regrow his spine, but at least he has taken baby steps.
No first as many are aware He has created a divide with the American people by supporting the Occupy movement and there illegal and disrespect for law enforcement. He created a divide when He called out Israel in front of the U.N. to peace talks with Palenstine. He later appoliged. Then instead of reducing the debt we now have been down graded for the first time in our nation history. He has recently attacked religious instituions and faith based groups as part of Obama care. He and his admin. have overstepped there boundaries by appointing people in positions without congressional approval.
He talks about change well by the looks of things if this is the kind of change we had hoped for we don't need no more except a new president who will lower the cost of gas and put America back to work. Drill baby Drill. And finally when it comes to picking a fight President Obama has shown He will do anything to put the ball in the other parties hands when He could come up and lead us out of all these problems.
He talks the talk but can't seem to walk the walk. He says He wants America back to work yet won't allow for drilling that will free up and create jobs.
Alright, let me run some facts by you and see how you respond.
When Bush was in office, towards the end of his term, we were losing 750,000 jobs a MONTH. That's a month, not a year. During Obama's term, we have had consistant job GROWTH (weak growth but still improvement) for over a YEAR.
In case you didn't know, the United States president can NOT control gas prices. Most gas prices as set by OPEC. This is an international oil organization that is made up like a dozen countries who have a lot of oil. No, the United States is not part of OPEC. So we have very little control over the prices they set.
As for Israel, they killed over 1000 Palestains in a MASSACRE. It was a SLAUGHTER, plain and simple. Palestine fired some rockets into Israel and killed some people. Any loss of life is tragic, but tell me who is the REAL villian. Israel continues to expand its settlements after they have promised not to. God's chosen people sure do lie a lot. You can support Israel if you like. I don't support liars.
He is the PRESIDENT. He is not a PREACHER. He doesn't have to support religion other then to support the first amendment.
Yes, we want to drill for oil that will mess up the environment and create TEMPORARY jobs. It is better to invest in clean energy like Germany. In Germany their wind and solar pannels have gotten so efficient, that the goverment no longer has to substize it. You are telling me that Germany, can do better then the United States in CLEAN ENERGY?
Like I said, you can believe what you want. This is all factual information.
With all do respect how do we pay for clean energy when we have no money to invest with in this country? We are broke we owe an average of $40,000 per child in this country that continues to grow.
Second why borrow oil from countries that are not friendly to America? Last I checked many of them have so much civil unrest it would be in the best interest to drill safely here at home and not have to depend on the middle east for oil.
Now back to Israel. It was not Israel who is at fault. These Palenstine people are supported and funded by terrorists. There leader is of a Terrorist group Hamas. Since when did Israel not have a right to defend itself against terrorists? We would do the same here if our neighbors were being supported by terrorists.
We have a right to defend ourselves against terrorist just like Israel.
Israel has a right to exist and defend itself.
Finally Obama's Admin failed in fast and furious and now it is going after NYPD for keeping a close eye in public meetings and such to protect it's citizens. 9/11 taught us anything it is we must do all we can to protect the best interest of America.
Obamacare is mandating something each state should decide.
Not Washington D.C.
No, we are broke but we have the money to invest in two or three wars at a time.
We borrow oil from non-friendly countries because they are the ones who have the most oil. If there was a friendly country who had enough to supply America, we would go to them.
I'm not going to argue with you about Israel as your going to defend them no matter what I say. I will not change my opinion. Yes, they have a right to exist but they should keep their promises. They almost never do. Back to the we are broke thing. Every single day the United States on average gives Israel ten million dollars! Now 10 million x 365 days a year = a lot of cash we could invest in education, health care, reserach, or any other number of positive things.
9-11 If you remember happened on BUSH'S watch. He had WARNINGS about it before it happened. He did not take them seriously because they receive hundreds of such threats, probably daily.
Sure, each state can do their own health care. I have no problem with that.
Lol you could say that about any president or anyone for that matter. So, he wont' get your vote, if your legal to vote. That is one vote out of millions. We are all kidding ourselves if we think our individual vote will decide the entire election.
Your allowed to dislike him. Just like I disliked Bush intensely. I wish he would grow a spine. Obama isn't my ideal candidate but to me he is better then the alternatives. That being said some people are probably in full support of the various Republican candadiates. That's fine. I just won't vote for the same person. There are a lot of things that Obama has done that I disagree with. I wish he'd do a billion things that he won't do. But I will give him credit when he gets something right. I will yell at him when he messes up.
It's funny how when Bush was in messing up everything, noone complained but now since It's OBAMA a African American everyone has something harsh to say about what he's doing. It's a shame how this world is. This man has only been in office for 3years and some months and yall acting as if he can fix this mess Bush created over night! Yall need to stop cause Obama will be re-elected. You just watch and see! If you all do your homework you will see that he has put some people back to work; these things take time and can't be fixed over night. Yall need to get real!!!!
How u don't like people u don't know? Some of you people are so lame and a disgrace to the community. This is the president of your country. Yall don't think but we could of got someone who don't know anything but the good part about Obama is that he does know what he's doing.
HE STILL DONE NOTHING! but create jobs he did not want to kill Bin laden and it was beyond his power and he took credit for it they say its true!
Other then that he did a semi decent job i would like to se him verse ron Paul but the republicans hate him SO MUCH that he will not even be in the spot light. Top roman is going to suck our country dry he spent 25million alone on the florida debate.
