George Will on President Obama "America has had some great presidents, many mediocre ones and a few bad ones. But we’ve never had one like Barack Obama. He’s the first who thinks the job is beneath him. He’s the first who turns political give-and-take into a crisis by refusing to negotiate with Congress. He’s the first who thinks the way to more power is to inflict pain on ordinary people."

There is more but it's not relevant here

The reason that the Community Disorganizer is so easy to con is because he's a con man. Not a very good one but a con man just the same.

The real reason BO stinks is because he lacks any experience and will not listen to anyone that has. That is the problem with his all knowing attitude and lack of negotiations. His administration has been brought into the light and the rats are running for cover... it is fun to watch!

The emperor has no clothes, had no clothes, and by looking at past performance, will never have any clothes.

Anyone seen the left lately? It is nice to see them so quiet. It is hard for them to defend the continued failures of the president. So they go silent. It is Bushes Fault just wont fly anymore.

TOT: "The real reason BO stinks is because he lacks any experience and will not listen to anyone that has. That is the problem with his all knowing attitude..." Drop him a line but preface it with a list of your experience.

As president you surround yourself with people that you feel best knows the areas of expertise that is needed. If Eric Holder or really any of Obama's administration is as good as there is available... we are in deep trouble. He has surrounded himself with his political contributors that on its own should lend enough evidence that they aren't very smart. Let's take a look at his military leaders... hes fired the greatest and is on the way to destroying a superpower. As normal for Obama this goes on his long list of failures. Very very long list.

YUKONJACK: Thank you for proving my point. Rather than make a case for your side, you choose to call those that disagree "racist". Demonize and degrade the other side. It no longer works. The left has played that card so much that you sound shrill, petty and VERY irrelevant. Those that play the race card have no credibility and no longer warrant responding to. Take that silly argument back to grade school.

The guy has lied over and over again, so how can you trust that he will do the RIGHT THING? No wait, it's the insurance companys fault now.

And thank you Hilltopper for thinking that I am more qualified than Obama to lead the nation, and I agree I couldn't be any worse than what we now have! But I cannot lie an am no where near corrupt enough to get elected to office!

Where are the rest of the guys? Come on where is Mr. G and that rz guy? They always have a nice thing or two to say about how well obama is doing as our county's leader. Mr. G, hope you've done well with your insurance search. Last we've heard you had no problems. I hope some of you realize that obama has failed. He has failed us, the USA, and the world. It was said, "they drove the Post Office into the ground, how are they going to manage healthcare". Wow! that felt good just getting that off my chest. Just an opinion. Thank you.

GW Bush is going to be on Jay Leno this Tuesday. My prediction is that he will defend the president since he also was unpopular during his stint. Take a nap so your mother lets you stay up to watch it.

WEEKS AFTER Fox News reported that the Benghazi case was not listed on the State Department's 'Rewards for Justice' website, the government announces it has been offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the attack.

LOL! OK, here goes.

We had 8 years of Bush, who got us into 2 unfunded wars that cost $1 trillion, gave tax cuts to the wealthy that drove the federal debt to record numbers, and tanked the economy. But that was OK with you righties.

Obama axed the tax cuts, saved the economy, got health insurance for all of America, got us out of those 2 wars, but that black Kenyan Muslim Marxist is a bad president?

Ya'all are going to have to do better than that.

By the way, I was reading FB comments on Congressman's Chris Collins page where all the republicans were calling for Obama's impeachment because of Obamacare. No one thought of the fact that the ACA will cut NYS premiums by an average of 40%. Nor did they consider that even if impeachment proceedings were brought against him, it would never get the 2/3rds of the vote of the Senate it requires.

And yes, I'm all set to hit the button on the NY State of Health website to buy insurance. Just waiting until the last minute.

and drugs...I'm still waiting for you to show an example of where I supported Obama. Just because I refuse to call him names doesn't mean I support him. Once again, I am just sick of the hate, spite,non-productive complaining that constantly goes on here. No solutions...just venom spewing. It's discusting and un-American how you all wish our government fails.

usedto, the government has been in failure mode for a l-o-n-g time. The current administration has merely made that fact way too evident. The founders never had career politicians in mind and while there is an argument that they were "elite rich slave owners", they were against slavery and they spent THEIR OWN MONEY to travel to Phila. and later Washington to conduct the business of government. The Constitution has provisions for the citizens to "reset" the government should it become what we now have. Given that they would have been shooting long ago, which is the reason for the 2nd Amendment.

and usedto, for your support of Barry, you may not state your open reverence for the lying Muslim, BUT by chastising those who state the truth with facts that you choose not to believe, you are a closet supporter.

I'm upset the right wingers forgot about me... Dave you put it quite nicely... I do suppose the Bush's would have just made up some BS about weapons of mass destruction and sucked us into another trillion dollar mess.. It's called diplomacy folks and sometimes it takes time .. Oh BTW it's exactly that same jack booted thuggary that has made us so beloved all over the world..
