Joe, are you talking about the first president to believe that he was the King of the U.S.A.? Are you talking about the President that believes that if you work hard and make lots of money that you are a bad citizen and you should have your wealth taken from you by the government? Are you talking about the President that believes if you disagree with him that you are a racist? I think I know the answer to your quiz.

Heck apparently most of you voted for him…Just like most of us apparantly most of us voted for Julia Buzzard… someone else not born in the country they are leader of…sorry for the dangling participle.

I’m all for public debate and free speech, but this is straw-manning. As I’m the type of person who likes evidence, I’d love to see news articles or some sort of reference attached to each one. For the ones implying that he’s somehow being more lavish than previous presidents, how about a comparison to the last couple ones.

For example, a quick Google search reveals that although the “quiz” implies that our President has taken more vacation time than his predecessors, the actual numbers suggest he didn’t.

Regarding the “apology tours”, who is he apologizing for?

@Joe
Not really, I’ve spent the last few months planning a wedding. If you have some news articles relevant to the assertions in the link you posted please inform me of them. I’m not being sarcastic here either, while I voted for Obama in the last election, I don’t think he lived up to a lot of his promises and I’m willing to be convinced to vote for whoever his competitor ends up being this time around.

if we had a president who wanted to destroy the economy of the USA what would he do different than the one we have?

Well David, I think I’ve gotta say “Do your homework”...
... yes, easy to say… but, when you’re working on a marriage, what the President has been doing is the last thing on your mind I understand… I would suggest that caring who the Next President is going to be & what the current President has done, right now, is the most important thing we have faced in our lives! All kinds of very scary things are happening… and MUST BE STOPPED… and yes, a New President WILL MAKE the difference of how our Nation is going to be in the very near FUTURE.

Believe me… ALL Items in that list ARE TRUE…

You do the work to “catch up” on what you have missed… I can’t do it all for you… I’m sorry.
