      President Obama recently returned from the Asian summit to negotiate thousands of jobs for American workers.
      The borders are more secure than ever. Farmers are losing crops because of so few immigrant workers.
      Our taxes are lower than anytime in recent decades.
      Troll much?

        .......The borders are more secure than ever............
        That is not saying much. on 25 Nov 11, NBC Nightly News ran a story entitled: US Ranchers: We live in fear along the border. Not Fox, Not CNN, but NBC! The border is not more secure than ever, it is more porous than ever!

        Let's see ... obama goes to Asian countries, where the majority of the populations have much less disposable income than Americans, in order to have them buy our much more expensive goods, so it will produce more jobs for American workers.
        Probably because he plans to further decrease the value of the dollar, thus allowing the citizens of third world countries to afford American products ... even if it results in Americans having to spend $100 for a bag of groceries, here at home.
        ... or, maybe he had to get out of town, when he was under a lot of political heat.

        steveo – Yes, I saw the same documentary. It focused on very localized issues, in Texas if I remember correctly. Mexico has become a very dangerous place over the past decade, with drug cartels fighting over diminishing smuggling points along the border.
        President Obama has increased the number of Border Patrol agents and security at ports of entry.

      Let's hope that obama doesn't squander another TRILLION American dollars, through our disproportional contributions through the IMF, to bail our Europe ... and, let's hope that obama doesn't simply print another TRILLION American dollars, to bail out Europe ... which would result in a dramatic reduction of the dollar's worth, and crippling inflation here in America !!!

      You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

      You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

      You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

      You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

      You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

      You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.

      You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

      You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

      You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America ’ crowd and deliver this message abroad.

      You scare me because you want to change America to a European style Country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

      You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

      You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

      You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose That lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

      You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.

      You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

      You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

      You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

      You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

      You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh’s, Hannitys, O'Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, Conservative points of view.

      You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

      Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will Probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

      Lou Pritchett
      This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it.
      Big surprise. Since it hit the Internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits.

    most recently it was about taking Lybias govt down...now what? Sooner or later it will be about backing off and supporting business and job creation...this marxist model has failed.

      You wouldn't know a marxist model if it bit you in the rear. I also think last Friday just blew up in your face..without the help of congress the economy is slowly turning around from GW Bush's big mess.

      • Howard

        jean ... I'm sure you know all about biting people on the rear ... and, I'm also sure you know all about Marxists, since you seem to be one. For three years, obama has been systematically destroying America's economy, by stubbornly copying Europe's failed socialistic system. Now, that Europe's economy is going down the tubes, obama wants hard working Americans to bail them out. Jean, stop driving while staring into the rear view mirror ... barack ovomit has been an embarassment of a President for over THREE YEARS !!! Besides, I don't buy into the three year blame game, ovomit, and you ovomit stooges have been spouting in lockstep, as an excuse for your messiah's non-stop screw ups. And, if you read another black person's book (by Condelezza Rice), you'll discover that GWB was not dumb, as you lying liberals keep trying to mischaracterize him ... he was actually much more decisive, and a much better leader, than the inept, empty suit, barack ovomit.

        Howard, does Norquist pay you per post or per anti-Obama lie?

    Being a Marxist, I'm proud of Presdient Obama and wish he had far more power than he does. Communism is the only way for us and he understands that. If we weren't allowed to own anything, then people wouldn't fight over who has what. Obama should be made lifetime king and divide all our resources equally. The Communist Party USA will endorse him again because they know a winner.

    @Howard. Your comment about President Bush's intellect is spot on. Bush was destroyed in the media some of it looked like the attacks on President Regan. The media failed to report much of Bushs efforts and those they did report were underreported. It is clear fact that obama actually ran against President Bush and not Mccain and also spent two years shaping (along with a willing press) public opinion about the economy and the Bush administration. There will come a time when history will straighten out the Bush legacy...as it did with President Regan. Obama's presidency is a horrible failure on almost every front..it will take a generation or two for the democratic party to recover from this... Proof of what is to come can be learned if you study the carter disaster and the years following. We need leaders not activists running our country...and believe me there is a difference! noobama 2012

      I'd say that we need active leaders running our country, instead of the do nothing right wing House (which wastes taxpayer money an precious time on bills that reiterate abortion laws) and the Senate Repugs (who filibuster everything).

      • Howard

        GetReal ... You GET REAL !!! First of all ... two lame dumbocrats in congress, Barney Frank, and Chris Dodd, were responsible for America's financial melt down, which both GWB, and barack obama inherited ... resulting in an 11 TRILLION dollar national debt. ... and, then obama increased the debt. by 4 TRILLION dollars in just 3 short years ... and, he wanted to squander even more. Somebody has to show some tough love, and say NO. Aparently, only the Republicans, in the congress, are willing to stop the obama and democratic spending insanity ... while idiots like you continue to slobber over barack ovomit, while American goes into economic decline.

      Jerry, you're spot on also. While the biased lamestream media demonized GWB on a regular basis ... they completely ignored their responsibility to vet the the inept, less than single term, senator who voted 'present 127' times, and, attended a radical, racist, anti-American church, for TWENTY YEARS. His ONLY claim to fame, was two self-serving, self-absorbed, books about himself, even though he had not achieved anything ... followed by a Nobel Prize for not having achieved anything. Then, he somehow became a sacred cow, as result of his B.S. !!!

      Reagan the worst president of my 76 years...G. W. Bush the second worse. FYI the ultra-right wingnuts are the Nazis.

      "If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what you mean by a "Liberal" , then I am proud to say I am a "Liberal".-John F. Kennedy-Profiles in Courage.

      Here is one for you: "Bush fought a war on poverty – and the poor lost."

      I also remember an incident back in 2006, when school children from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama were taught to sing a song praising G. W. Bush for his Katrina response.
