    You are thinking about how correct I am. but you are going to hide this by saying I'm wrong.

    Well we are a partly socialist country and have been for a long time. I have no problem with that. We needed healthcare reform and that's another reason I voted for Obama. What we didn't need was a conservative who was going to try to turn the whole country into Kansas -- tax cuts for the wealthy and reduced services for the poor. That's the last thing we need.

    He won the second term because he became a celebrity , a leader of pop culture and you know how we love our celebrities.
    Contrary to popular belief that Obama helped the poor, the fact is the ones that have gotten rich or bettered themselves is the 1 percenters, Wall street makes out like a bandit, so the thought that Obama would help the poor is in error. By helping I mean a growing economy and jobs, instead of handouts. Income inequality has risen under Obama. I think a large portion of those still defending Obama are just to embarrassed to admit how wrong they were.

    Healthcare is a basic human right and is the government's business via "promoting the general welfare."

    Part of the reason he won was because Romney did not inspire enough voters to get out and vote for him.

    Voted against Obama both times. Did not like either GOP candidate but had no choice. Anybody who voted for Obama after his first go around needs to have their head examined! Just cannot understand the liberal mind. Course they do say it's a mental shortcoming. Guess that would explain it. Pray for our country fellow Gators!!

    The number of executive orders is not what counts. Most by other presidents were names of post offices and similar non important items and of course pardons at end of terms. Check out Obama's executive orders.

    Never voted for da 'bama as he had never accomplished anything, just another unproductive liberal lawyer. But, what really killed it was when he characterized his grandmother as a "typical white person" confirming my suspicion that he is a racist.

    Voted for McCain and Romney. In '08 I was voting for the lesser of two evils. In fact, I almost didn't vote at all after he picked Palin. Biggest dumbass VP pick of all time.

    Once elected, I actually had hope for Obama being a transcendent Prez. I remember thinking if nothing else, he can at least be an active example of a successful, involved Black Dad. And he would have leverage over the Black community to begin the long journey to take ownership of their problems and self-correct their broken culture.

    Not only did Obama slink from that responsibility, he essentially adopted the NAACP's talking points his whole Presidency-which is to totally ignore the cultural issues that can't be solved by a govt program. Not to mention his too numerous to count domestic and foreign policy blunders and scandals.

    I see it as inevitable he goes down as one of the worst Presidents in history, surpassing Bush by a country mile in the modern era.

    This country will rue the day it didn't elect Romney in '12. He wouldn't have been one of the greats, but would have provided a start on fixing some of our more urgent problems.

    It was a joke. I have no love for anyone listed in that graph. But I do agree with the premise that Obama's executive orders seem to be of a more pertinent nature than some previous ones.

    Is it too much to ask the liberal on this thread to use complete sentences. Hope & Change just won't cut it.
