Occasionally I'm disappointed in his performance, but to be honest, while not perfect, the Democratic platform is better than the GOP's by miles. If the Republicans would shed their crazies and craft some more sensible policies, then maybe a vote against them will become more regrettable.

All politicians spend more time and money dragging each other into the gutter than anything else they do. We need bigger gutters so those trashmasters can flow away.
Seriously it's worse than how children act!!

If people are honest about what they see going on in this country, they have to say they regret their vote. But there is a huge amount of people that won't because if they say anything bad about Obama they will be called racist.......I never voted for him and people tried calling me a racist for it......I said come meet some friends of mine and tell them I'm racist, so they came over and I was there with 5 of my best friends......all of them are african americans and know my feelings on Obama.....boy they sure stood up for me that day and the folks that said I was racist were floored by this turn of events.......you see my african american friends all voted for Obama the first time but not one of them did the second time.

Obama voters are simply in denial that they have been suckered... twice. You had to be just plain dumb to elect Omoron. Fools never learn.
Of course, the Republicans are to blame, they can't even field a decent candidate that can win an election. Somebody with some compassion for the average joe would help immensely.
Seems as though both parties don't care how much damage they do to the American people.
It's all a travesty of a mockery of a sham.

In the modern history of our government, we have never had a political party openly operate with the sole objective of the party being the failure of a President. The Republican party has openly stated from the very beginning that they wanted the president to fail and have done everything in their power to make that happen without regard for the welfare of the country and its people. The obstructionist Republican party has pursued a policy that will eventually kill their own party. As long as they can spoon feed their followers the talking points, they will continue to hurt the country. At this time, the Speaker of the house has refused to even bring bills us for discussion and a vote that have passed the Senate. He has pigeonholed the farm bill, the budget bill, the immigration bill, and a jobs bill without allowing even discussion on them. It is unprecedented in our history. It is no wonder the house has an approval rating of under 12%. The diogenist is total correct.

Wasn't Senator Obama's vote a key vote in the October 2008 bailout of Wall Street? He voted in favor, just like John McCain did.
Obama listens to Wall Street and never bends an ear to hear what the ordinary man on the street has to say.

Leaving others alone to do as they will isn't "picking winners and losers".
Erecting a tangle of laws that can be and are exploited by those with the greatest access to government officials to their own benefit, on the other hand...

I believe that the truth lies in what the libs on this post DON'T write. Only one indirectly referred to Obama, none defended him directly, nor did they once write his name. Defend your party, but even you can't defund Obama and Valerie.

"That's the second post you made Matt that I hit the agree button because I believe in principle it is correct..."
Gee. You say that like it's a bad thing. As for the fine vs cleaning up the mess, that's a matter for the state to figure out how they'll deal with it. I rank it in the same league as determining what the punishment will be for murder. While someone's Negative Rights were violated (in the case you reference, they spilled some stuff on what I presume is someone's property, thus causing them harm), the way to go about proving it in criminal court and handing down punishment for the offense can vary.

"Now you just described the 536 bills passed by the ND Legislature last year..."
You act like I would somehow think that this isn't also a tangle of laws...

Difference between Republican and Democrat== Republicans sign their checks on the front while Democrats sign theirs on the back

I am so sorry, marylynn, but Republicans have direct deposit on all their stuff. History shows that republican administrations don't tax and spend but they do spend and cut taxes. That is why we have these problems today. I am sure

"Are you sorry you voted Republican?"
I would laugh at that too.

starrett1 said: "your [sic] perfectly willing to let people be killed, let one party rule, and let people who have now lost their insurance go bankrupt.. In other words your [sic] willing to bow to the east and let ovomit RULE you."
Would that be eastward, as in facing towards Washington D.C., or is that a reference to Sharia? Because as far as the insensible talking points go, that'd be the one you missed.

And yet, not direct support of Obama. Nor criticism. And laughter is often used to cover embarrassment.

I am sorry that Obama had to bribe people with cell phones to get their vote. I am sorry that a lot of people voted for Obama over and over again, up to 8 times. I am sorry some very poor black woman was waiting for Obama to give her cash, she said he promised.

I am also sorry that a few of people I know got their health care plans cancelled after year being on that plan. I am sorry Obama is a Liar.
You can only hope and wish Veritas. I will never listen to or vote for a Democrat.

And a lot of people that lost their Health Care, won't vote for a Democrat again.

and still no support for Obama. No compassion shown for the thousands who have lost their insurance, or have had their premiums and deductibles double or triple. Obama lied about his legacy for at least three years. It is crumbling and people are not getting what they were promised.
You said "defend your party" like that means something. If less Americans treated political party affiliation like their favourite football team or preferred church, quit rehashing the same tiresome rhetoric being shoveled them, and actually put some thought into what policies they can get behind, this two-party nonsense wouldn't be in the shambolic state it's currently in. For what it's worth and as it now stands, the Democrats are in less of an existential mess than their default alternative. And will continue to be, so long as they aren't being given much by way of competition.

I am not Kidding anyone. Since you have lived off the system, like forever, You don't have a clue. When it hits people I know in the Pocket Book and they no longer have their same Insurance. Well Obama Lied. You have your plan, you get to keep your plan. Period. You have your doctor, you get to keep your doctor. Period. He is a Liar.
