    Well now! All I can say is that it's sure about time; whether the mic was opened or closed, I'd begun to wonder if PRES OBAMA really thought the dismissive complaints of all of his adversaries, their trolling, yelling, screaming, whinning, rebutting, stonewalling, as well as the 'rebuking' of himself, from the REPS was coming from a legitimate, valid and good place. He's always tried to fly above the hate; being so accepting of the abuse, insubordination and harrassment, I'd wondered if he was in denial!

    Just a few of the hateful comments made by Barry.

    "Get ready for hand to hand combat with your fellow Americans"
    "I want all Americans to get in each other's faces!"
    "You bring a knife to the fight pal, we'll bring a gun"
    "Hit back twice as hard!"
    "Punish your enemies!"

    Well now! I've heard all of this INSTIGATION before, but somehow, it doesn't sound so strange to me because, I don't blame the PRESIDENT! Whatever remarks he made about his enemies, against and towards his enemies, is certainly understandable to me! OH, he certainly does have them! It's beyond me, how he was able to deal with this s–t for so long! They show themselves everyday on this blog! What do you expect? You can kick a mule for only so long; and he will kick your 'butts' back, sooner or later, OK?

    Joh; government's probably not doing as much behind our backs as ALL of the previous administrations did; what with all of our privviness to such a platitude of transparency these days. The people of these 'UN'-UNITED STATES and the world are able to keep up, in lock step, on a daily basis each and every little iota of anything that this administration is even thinking of doing! You get to teardown and pick apart openly 99% the PRESIDENT dreams of tackling an issue! Nope, theres not much behind our backs!

    Barry is the only president that has, in a speech, called American citizens his enemy. Shows just how deep his hate is for this country and its citizens. Everyone should question why a sitting president that passed, heath care, and supposedly corrected the problems with Wall Street, and don't forget also the smartest man ever to be president, needs raise $1,000,000,000 for his re-election. Thats $250,000,000 more than last time. Should not his record stand on its own?

    PRESIDENT OBAMA is smart; he's smart enough to know that he has some backstabbing, sabatoging, hate-filled enemies throughout the citizenry of these 'UNITED' STATES. It's not symbolic of any hate he harbors for the nation nor it's citizens. It's shows me that he's no fool. He's aware that he got them out here! He won't be caught off guard, sidestepped, or 'sitting with his back to the door', taking for granted that everybody loves him and his efforts. He's taken plenty knives in his back; he feels them.
