he rest of the world fell as hard for Barack Obama as Americans did.

Back in 2008, the same qualities in the 47-year-old senator from Illinois that excited U.S. voters enthralled people around the globe. He was a fresh face and a compelling orator. He had spent his childhood in the Asia-Pacific, and his skin color alone made billions of people feel a connection with him. Perhaps most importantly, he was not George W. Bush, the president who invaded Iraq. Obama promised “hope” and “change” and people believed he could deliver—that he would end wars in Muslim countries, improve America’s standing on human rights, even alleviate global poverty. “Yes we can!” shouted The Age, an Australian newspaper, when he won office. Just months later, the rookie president was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, a nod more to his promise than to anything he had accomplished.

I was rather nervous at the time that a man with so little experience was elected to take on the Presidency. It was such an unprofessional thing to do and so great a risk that I could hardly believe the level of the decision. Considering, we have been relatively lucky, but by far not enough.

Well I don't think luck has had much to do with it Obama's in ability to get anything done other than Obamacare has stemmed from his lack of experience with how Washington works. He had a veto proof majority for his agenda and was only able to pass a half-assed healthcare measure that was so unpopular he had to bribe his own party to vote for it and it cost the Dems the house for probably a decade.

I was thinking more of the challenges that we failed, than the social worker's agenda that yes he couldn't.

nope, when there is evidence to the contrary you just look foolish saying that

Yes I look foolish because I typed veto proof instead of filibuster proof, not to mention they are the same thing when the president is of the same party. But go ahead and claim how you and your magical Google can change facts

I make no claim, google is very easy to use which makes your opinion look even more foolish.

Knowing how to do something and actually doing it are two different things.

Thanks to members of Congress that stopped his Socialist agenda.

Yep.


nothing fake about it....

They know how to Google, but they can't decipher truth from fiction !

nope, when there is evidence to the contrary you just look foolish saying that

The evidence is tainted by the naivety of those polled! The Europeans are such Lefty boobs I couldn't stand them!
The BBC and CNN Europe, are such Lefty whores, they make the MSM here look conservative.

I make no claim, google is very easy to use which makes your opinion look even more foolish.

Except, obama has Fooled the World, just like he has Fooled America! obie is an inexperienced asshole, trying to reform America into a Marxist society!
obama is the worst President...EVER!

Those same fools now support Hillary, and for similar reasons.

Yes they do.

Stupid is as stupid does!

Wow another i hate obama thread populated by Conservatives, what a suprise.

It's not about hate....never has been...but apparently that is all you can proffer, because you can't handle the truth!

One that's going to vote for Trump but has the gall to say:



:lamo

You can't write this ****.

We have two choices....and for me it will NEVER, be Hillary! I was hoping that they would send her to prison over White Water, the WH Mail Room Scandal or one of the many other crimes that she has committed. But, she has been too clever or had people cover for her. Sooner or later..Karma will get hillary...I hope it's real soon.

Well said

The Truth is what I post...You Can't Handle it!

You would not know the truth if it bit you on the a**. That is why so many here either ignore and or put you in your place on a daily basis. You have consistently been proven wrong on so many issues, when you do occasionally make a valid point it gets ignored.

That's why I get so many Kudos from others, right?

It is you who posts the lies of the Left and can't handle the truth, recognize the truth ...or even met the truth!


The lowest form of voting intelligence, would vote for obama or hillary. Do you know anyone like that?

Have a look in the basement sometime, see what others have said about you. Most of it cannot be repeated here. It speaks volumes about what many here, both Right and Left, long time posters and newbies, feel about your posts.

And kudos do not equal sane and rational posts in regards to what others say about you downstairs. How many times have you been banned?
