My thoughts are that there are at least two lies in your nation name.

... I'm still not sure just what people expected. I mean, did you honestly think the president can wave a magic wand and change what he likes in the government?

As for the services, we've kinda had this small economic problem you might have heard about, sort of causes people to fall back on the safety nets more...

Obama will always be remembered as bad not because he was ineffective but because he was placed in a bad situation. How do you get out of a monumental debt such as ours without making a few enemies? The answer is that you can't and you don't.

He's certainly not the worst, and far better than the McCain alternative.

Apparently a lot of people thought that...those people voted for obama. :palm: And of course not much happened (besides the debt) because the president can't do whatever the hell he wants (thank god cuz we'd all be screwed if obama could do whatever he wanted)

I wouldn't be expecting that of him if he hadn't promised to do the next best thing to magic in his campaign. He promised the moon, and we got a pile of shit SHAPED like the moon. Now, at the time, I was not able to vote, but I will be when the next election rolls around, and mark my words, I'll vote for the only guy who's ever actually made magic that I've seen. That's right, my very first vote ever goes to Mickey Mouse. Who's with me?

Way less left wing then promised; still far better than McCain.

Kuchinich should have gotten the nomination.

See, that's the thing, he didn't. So far he's kept to a good majority of his promises.

I can't tell if you're being serious or if you're just being fucking retarded.

Either way, you're an idiot.

Also, to all you McCain supporters, do you really want another Bush in power? I mean, come on, really?

How, pray tell, is Obama better than Bush? Face it, this partisanship is just a clever way the government has devised to rape the US politically and economically with us simply sitting there like it's all ok.

Please, feel free to step up to plate and do a better job.

Considering the resistance from the two parties, its rather hard to get anything done nowadays.
