  • Always with those questions you're not supposed to ask. The FBI must have a file 5 inches thick on you by now.

  • Maybe because many are opening their eyes and putting the kool aid down and realize he is full of He said he had not read the new revised bill but yet claimed to know what was in it. Once he bold face lies like that hard to believe anything he says and more people are seeing the real Obama.

  • I think the "real" Obama came out with his "stupidly" comment regarding his buddy Gates' arrest. 

    See what happens when you hang out with Joe "Foot In Mouth" Biden?!  LOL

  • Because it was a really bad speach. He just read what was on the prompter until the question was asked about the Harvard profes. Then he got animated talking about racism. Like he has experienced racism! He is a white man who looks black. He was raised in a white home and went to Harvard. Please!!!!!

  • Because he doesn't know what is going on. He doidn't make anything clearer nor make anyone feel any better about whats happening. His charisma is waning and people are only wanting to see the economy improve and the jobs to come back. Right now, the last thing they want is to spend money on healthcare. It's not rocket science.

  • Perhaps his non-answers were obvious even to the citizens who got polled? Plus, the numbers he threw around kind of hung in thin air, unsupported by details, in contradiction to recent calculations by gov't agencies, and sounding like prevarications (if not outright lies).

    I would have assumed that he is simply unfamiliar with many aspects of the 2 bills, except that he meticulously tip-toed around the section about choosing one's insurance company after this plan goes into effect (IF it passes). Watching that careful wording made me think that he does knw, and is hiding the truth. ...
