    Well, If his eight years of complete mismanagement of this country proves anything, it is that this is a great Country to have survived it.
    Question is, how much more can we stand?

    I think it's basically over. Bush put the lid on the coffin, and Obama is nailing it down. While Congress stands around and watches. Might as well be playing fiddles like Nero.

    Instead we got Obama. It's becoming painfully obvious how that's working out. Overall it was a lose/lose scenario.

    Clint Eastwood had it right on O
    Don't think so Freddie. Obama's mess has inoculated another generation of Americans against liberalism. Just like Carter. Will be another 32 years before another lib gets elected POTUS.

    The good news about Obamacare is that it does require mental health coverage. Liberalism is a mental health issue and about 18% of the population are afflicted. Go get yourself some counseling before it gets repealed.

    I expected less, but he has done irreparable damage.

    What difference does character make?
    Character dictates your actions.

    Nah. She'll run to his right and win on a 90s nostalgia ticket.

    Cliffs are that she essentially wanted him to be more liberal

    It's a stretch to interpret that as a win for conservatives

    Well, remember Chris Matthews gushing all over the place, while who knows what was running down his leg, unabashedly campaigning for the guy on his show. It's was pathetic, but gives you mindset of the liberal media, and their complete sell out for their messiah. What a disappointment he must be.

    That's why candidates are vetted and should have some experience to reference. So you don't find out a candidate is either less than or more than you would like, unfortunately, our media and the Left were so ready to crown Obama that no one stopped to think, "Wait a second, is this guy even really that competent?"

    Sarah Palin offered the PERFECT deflection to that issue.

    Comparatively speaking, Palin was eminently more qualified for the office than Obama. In fact, in hindsight, we have learned that not only is she more qualified, but it is likely that she is much more intelligent than he.
