There are many things we know now and the most disappointing, he is known as a proven liar, this makes his validity and leadership worthless.

We know that he is honest and working hard to improve the economic disaster he inherited from Bush. Obama is remarkable because he has Ben able to achieve some of his goals in spite of the unrelenting Republican/Tea Party obstructionism designed to make him fail, even at the cost of dragging America down as collateral damage.

President Obama is the right President for our time and his noble perseverance progressing through unfair obstacles without complaining illustrates that he has become one of America’s greatest Commanders in Chief.

You should learn to disagree with reason, not just attack with insults, if you want to be taken seriously.

He can blame Bush for a year or two, but not if he continues to do thing the way Bush did them, the war, Gitmo, etc., and he has no ideas of his own. The tax cuts he extended are now his. Raising the debt level, his. Extending the war in Afghanistan is his idea. He really was elected President, and it is way too late for him to decide he wants to extend the Bush years for 4 more years

You see the world in black and white, like everything Obama is bad and everything you believe in is all good. While I generally disagreed with many of Bush’s decisions, I give him credit for doing some things right. We should expect Obama to make the same decisions that any responsible President would make and we should expect him to make some errors.

I would hope you would be able to view the infinite subtle nuances that spans the space between black and white.

Times, and circumstances change, and you cannot keep doing the same thing over, and over. I think Preident Bush did what had to be done when he was President, but President Obama needed to do something about the defcit, he enlarged it, the budget, never had one, and it is as though he, Obama, was in a job he would never be prepared to do. President Bush had won the war in Iraq, Prsident Obama dragged it out, and lost it. Just like this time President Obama has no clue as to what he will do in the next 4 years in the event he would win in Noveber. All he does is berate Romney. He cannot be elected just because he doesn't like his opponent. I already know what Romney, and Ryan will do on their first day in Office. I don't know what Obama is doing tomorrow.

OK then.

Let’s assume, for the sake of argument, Romney/Ryan win the election. In the world of black and white, what is it specifically that you “already know [they] will do on their first day in Office?” I’m also curious about what you do actually know about Romney, based on (1) what he says and (2) his behavior.

ROmney will begin repealing Obamacare tax freeing up millions of dollars we can use for real problems, beside catering to Unions, hiring teachers who should be paid for by property taxes, not Federal funds. He will look at all the regulations placed on business making it difficult to hire competent workers. He will reduce taxes on small businesses so they can hire. Right now there are business needing to hire, but they will not as long as Democrats are strangling them with useless rules. The Democrats have killed more jobs then they saved in the last couple years. Anymore questions?

This election is all about jobs, not Romney's tax returns, or fairy dust.

Yes, many. Thanks for asking, and for your answers you gave.

OK, here goes:
1) How many millions of dollars will he free up?
2) What are the real problems we can use those millions of dollars for?
3) Do you believe unions are bad?
4) Why should teachers be paid for by property taxes and completely without Federal assets?
5) How much will he reduce taxes on small businesses so they can hire?
6) What are the useless rules the Democrats enacted to strangle small business and keep them from hiring?
7) How many jobs have the Democrats killed vs. saved in the last couple years?
8) Do you believe Obama is doing anything right as President?

That’s about it. Thanks.

Even though a President can be elected for 2 terms, 8 years, they are really only elected for 4 years at a time. Not all President get 2 terms. You get a second term when the first term is successful, Obama's was not, and he will have to go home to Chicago in January.

The topic is to discuss what we believe we know about Barack Obama, not to insult those who do. I would appreciate if you would simply say how you disagree as an adult, assuming that you may be. If you’re a child, you’re out of your league when it comes to reasonable discourse.

I will no longer respond to your pleas for my attention is being hostile and mean spirited is the only way you know how.

I am a 70 year old retired man with nothing to do but listen and compile facts and politics fascinate me....I have in particular watched Obama because some think he is our first black President,while in fact is a half-breed. While reading your comments about thinking he is honest and etc in fact he is dishonest and is a proven liar, if you don't know that by now you are way late to the party and should not be allowed to vote. You have access to a computer, google check some of the of the facts out....I am not going to do your work for you! If indeed you are what you think you are you can find the info without much difficulty. Also I am a two war Military Vet (Korea & Nam) and a high paid retired business manager. What are your credentials. As a foot-note he lied in facts about his father and other things in books he supposedly wrote!

You may be older, more computer wise, a better Googler, more patriotic, higher in rank and better credentialEd than I, but you’re also proudly exposing your prejudices and being generally insulting.

And, for what it’s worth, we all “half-breeds.”

This is a forum for discussing what we believe we know about President Obama, not insulting him or forum participants. I would recommend you try to be constructive and not so negative.

I will not respond to you again. Ta.
