    Obama, Holder, and Napolitano should all be in jail,
    for the illegal sale of 2,500 weapons, to the Mexican drug cartels
    ... as well as the subsequent COVER UP of these crimes ...
    and the murder of American border agent, Brian Terry.

    If anything, Obama, Holder, and Napolitano,
    should be held to a higher standard, than the rest of us.

    In the days of Watergate, the Press demanded, and
    got JUSTICE for the American people. Today, the
    media looks the other way, or helps in the cover up !!!

      I think you need to do some more research Howard, the ATF gun-walking program started in 2006.

        The obama administration, who can't shoot straight, didn't track the 2,500 automatic weapons which they sold to the Mexican Drug Cartels ... and, the obama / holder cover up is going on NOW !!!

    I agree with Howard – But this is not the area to complain about that subject. I've been a lifelong Registered Democrat. and Just recently moved : lock / stock & barrel, to Houston. I know my vote won't count down here in a republican state, but I'm still voting. If the republicans end up giving the nomination to Gingrich, It sounds like to me that the republicans really want Obama to be re-elected. Although I Voted for Obama, and I don't think he's doing a Great Job as President, but as for giving him a grade, I would give him a " C – " that grade would be for getting OBL / Al Lawki / Gadaffi & etc on His Watch. Anyway – IF the republicans put in Romney as their Candidate, ( or even Ron Paul) I honestly would Vote for them, in the general election, as a whole lot of other people such as Independents, and Democrats would do. Anybody else, I guess I will have to vote for re-electing Obama .

      @Larry in Houston,

      You should re-think voting anything Republican. Granted you are entitled to your opinion on Pres Obama and how he has performed his duties. But if you consider at least two things, you might cut the guy some slack.

      1) NO PRESIDENT, SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION EVER INHERITED A WORST U.S. ECONOMY. We are losing 700K jobs per month with the president was sworn in. The Dow was at 6700. 90% of Al Qaeda's leadership were living comfortably in mansions.

      In three years.....Obama has reversed the trend in jobs; going from losing 700K to a small net growth 21 of the last 24 months. The Dow has doubled to 12,000. And its guaranteed there isn't a member of Al Qaeda or any of its affiliates that actually feel safe.

      2) The Republicans has a sworn vindetta against this president. There has been Zero support for anything this President proposes by the GOP/Tea people since he was sworn in. Imagine the improvements in the economy if those people would have put this country in front of politics? The main goal of the GOP/Tea people has been to make Obama a one-term president.....NOT...seeing this country get's out of the mess left by GWB

      So think more objectively about Obama. Being president is the most difficult job ever in the history of the world. I don't think any one of the GOP/Tea people have the temperment or pragmatism necessary to keep this country moving towards recovery. Giving more and more money to the upper 2% is not a new idea ... and hasn't shown to actually work. Think about it!

    A doctor from France says:
    "In France , the medicine is so advanced that
    we cut off a man's testicles; we put them into another man, and
    in 6 weeks he is looking for work."

    The German doctor comments:
    "That's nothing, in Germany we
    take part of the brain out of a person;
    we put it into another person's head, and
    in 4 weeks he is looking for work."

    A Russian doctor says:
    "That's nothing either. In Russia we
    take out half of the heart from a person;
    we put it into another person's chest, and
    in 2 weeks he is looking for work."

    The U.S. doctor answers immediately:
    "That's nothing my colleagues,
    you are way behind us....in the USA, about 3 years ago,
    we grabbed a person from Kenya
    with no brains, no heart, and no balls....we made him
    President of the United States , and now.......
    the whole damn country is looking for work.
