  • Because ppl by nature are self-centered. You've heard of the me and mine generation, well this is a nice sampling. Most ppl are content until decisions are made that they perceive can/will affect them; they're myopic-only caring about themselves.

    Elections always produce a winning side and losing side. Most adults are usually able to successfully navigate beyond the sting of defeat within a resaonable time frame. Clearly there are those among us we have been unable to incorporate ANY of the ideals/decisions of President Obama. Some even refer to him as, "YOUR" President , so disrespectful. How can they say they love their country and support the Executive office of this nation?

    Frankly, those who spew un American rhetoric day after day get ignored by those who have the power to make change. Call it what you will. i prefer to think that if you act like a fool, your ideas should be considered foolish.

  • Free speech. It's our right!...and what kind of world would we live in if we all had the same thoughts and ideas, and if we all agreed with each other? A communist country, that's what!

  • We voted for a president who we thought was going to change the world. Little did we know he was going to throw out the constitution to do it.

  • Because Obama made a lot of promises during his campain. People ignorantly voted for him and now all we're going to be left with is "change" by the time he finishes taxing the hell out of us to pay for this rediculous health care bill.

    Obama lies, cheats and then comes up with ways to steal from us all and because a few people think he's so reat he gets away with it.

    His approval rating is VERY low right now. The more educated people become the lower he sinks in the approval rating polls.

  • I didn't vote for him, but I sort of feel sorry for him.
    I like him as a person - he's done some things on a personal level that I very much approve of - the girls' swing set, the vegetable garden, moving Grandma into the WH to make it easier on his kids. These are things that every husband/father should think about when throwing your family into such a situation as becoming POTUS.
    BUT - Pelosi needs to slow down cramming through legislation, because when everyone shouts "NO" they do not shout it at the Dems in Congress - they shove it on one man. And as a Bush supporter I know that no "one" person has all the control, makes all the decisions, or should be left holding all of the blame.
    I think he bit off more than he could chew.

    by that line of reasoning any of us could be president! not every "nice guy" deserves or is qualified to lead the greatest country on earth in to the ground! and my husband actually built from scratch our childrens swingset and tills and grows our own vegetables--we didn't hire people to do it for us! i feel nothing but contempt for the guy!

  • OP, if you can honestly tell me you never complained about Bush Jr, Clinton, Bush Sr, Reagan, Carter or Nixon, then you have a right to tell others they shouldn't complain. However, if you NEVER complained about any of our previous presidents, you obviously weren't paying attention to the news. LOL
