    Meeting with one party accomplishes nothing. Obama does nothing, Congress does nothing. And we wonder why we are in the mess we are in?
    Romney has to get in for the good of the country.
    People who vote for Obama can't like America.

      John – you are such a boneheaded Retard. Go to Fox News to post your comments.

      This man is a great president and one that history will remember. He saved us from a great depression. We have created over 4.4 million jobs, have a health care system that does not deny coverage due to pre-existing conditions, equal pay for work of equal value and the list goes on.

      Obama / Biden 2012

        Lionel – I understand you libs think you can tell everyone in America what they can and can't do, but you can't. What do you watch MSDNC? Sharpton and the gang??? LOL!!!
        The man saved us? OMG, you blind followers who live off of people like me are so ignorant. He created jobs, that is the party line. How many jobs were lost i.e. first time filers, since taking office? As much as you libs want it to be, this is not a socialist country.
        Equal pay, LOL!!! Men make more than women in Obama's WH – so what the f are you talking about? Don't even get me started on Biden...
        And, BTW, Fox has libs on every day. Maybe you should watch, you need to get educated on the real life and the real economy.

        Where's the evidence that he saved us from anything? You don't know what would have happened if we would have saved that 1 trillion. We all know you worship the ground Obama walks on and that you'd do ANYTHING he asked. If Obama said it was a good idea to drive a nail in your head you'd be headed to the hardware store. Do you ever think for yourself?

      If Congress stays held by the repubs and Romney is elected they will do a ot, they will screw this whole country.

        You make it sound as if we not screwed up already AND the DEMs have the Senate AND the White House.

        It's already happened Joyce, we now need to be unscrewed. Obama needs to go.

    John: how can you talk to the other side if they don't want to listen? and to say people who vote for Obama can't like America just proves my point

    • John

      Really? I voted for him and I am angry at what he has done. He is suppose to be a leader. If he can only talk to the side that follows him blindly what is he accomplishing? Why would you want to vote him back in? For more of the same? 4 years ago we gave him a chance. Now it is time for a change.

      Below is the type of crap he does that makes Americans angry;
      The Obama administration is moving to shut down nine Border Patrol stations across four states, triggering a backlash from local law enforcement, members of Congress and Border Patrol agents themselves.

      Critics of the move warn the closures will undercut efforts to intercept drug and human traffickers in well-traveled corridors north of the U.S.-Mexico border. Though the affected stations are scattered throughout northern and central Texas, and three other states, the coverage areas still see plenty of illegal immigrant activity - one soon-to-be-shuttered station in Amarillo, Texas, is right in the middle of the I-40 corridor; another in Riverside, Calif., is outside Los Angeles.

      U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it's closing the stations in order to reassign agents to high-priority areas closer to the border.

      It's Obama that doesn't like America, read his books. Remember the apology tour?

    TRUE CHRISTIANS WILL NOT VOTE FOR ANY REPUBLICAN, IT GOES AGAINST CHRISTIAN VALUES. The Republican Party only defends the rich. Other social issues don't even matter, voting Republican is UNCHRISTIAN

    • Steveo

      I wish I would have seen this earlier. So, let me get this straight Mark. Same s-e-x marriage is a Christian value? by their support, the Dems poo poo that. Is abortion is a christian value? Again, your Dems support it. The Bible says "if a man does not work, he does not eat", yet the Dems poo poo that as well.
      Lastly, what scripture can you supply to back up your claims? I submit to you, your babble is simply your option! A backward one at that!

    Hey John, You better get use to President Obama being the POTUS till 2016. And after that ? LOL And after that ? The next POTUS will be another Demacrate, because the country will be rolling along, growing strong and thriving.The people do have the last say WHO,WHAT & WHERE they stand. This country is filled with diversity and they don't lean towards being conservative like this country use to.People like you are a thing of the past and your come-back is showing that with this election to say the least. Oh, their always going top be racist and biggotry with the Republican Party T-Party but you guys will never get the chance to CONTROL this country ever again.You'd have to have a neo-white man BABY explosion of births like in Africa to make that happen.SO GET OVER IT ! POTUS? OBAMA ! 2012-2016.....

      1. If someone right said what you just did, they would be labled a bigot and racist. You (a Liberal) said it, and it is labeled as NORMAL!

      2. So, there are NO racists and bigots in the Dem/liberal party! WAKE UP! You cannot sleep walk your way thru life!

        They are blind followers, they know not what they are doing.... Funny thing, when I was in HS, the Greater Lawrence Regional Vocational High School in Andover MA, I was harrassed so badly because of my skin color I needed to transfer schools (to Lawrence High School). Lawrence High seemed to have more Spanish people (Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, etc.) I thought I was attending school in a 3rd world country.
        Anyway, this clown, who is most likely a white Italian guy, has the nerve to write what he wrote. But, like you said, he is a lib and it is normal for them so I expect it.
        The hate from that side is very telling. They are in panic mode (and they should be).

        NOBODY should be a blind follower for anything! or anyone! Politics makes people act silly!

        Me on a different account – I agree, but if you depend on those Obamabucks you get paid to look the other way.

        July 11, 2012 at 4:06 pm |
    • John

      Hey italmn – what color am I? People like me? What do you think I am? Here is a bit of my backround. I understand you think I am a thing of the past because I actually work for a living – because you are a lib and thats what libs think.
      Now you libs think the country wasn't diverse until Obama got into office? LOL!!!
      If the economy isn't moving along now, after billions and billions of stimulas money, what makes you think it is going to change? 60,000 jobs? That means the unemployed workforce grew by almost 200,000. We need 250+ just to stay even to avoid the unemployed # from getting larger and larger. But, your guy Obama tells you all is well and you think it is true.
      BTW, I own swamp land in Florida if you are looking for property to purchase.....

    Lefties need a fantasy world where everybody holds hands and bows to Obama. They don't care about results, only intentions.
