I voted this way because he has not sent any more to war and we are doing a little better than we was. Obama got these problems from bush he has done better than most.

One thing about it, the republican president that we'll have come November, can blame Obama for his first four years. Yea, there were some problems when he was elected promising to "heal the oceans," but he's done nothing but make the problems we had worse, and add more problems to the situation. Solyndra, Keystone Pipeline, all the "green jobs," etc. Oh and less we forget, the great health care program that is so great, Pelosi got her entire district exempt from it, as well as some unions and many others, and now Obama is telling believers that they have to provide provide contraceptives and abortions. Who does he think he is? He's not disappointed me at all. He's worse than I expected he'd be.

Pres Obama has done a great job! He really cares about the poor and disabled and has fought hard against the Reps to keep funding projects for the needy. The Reps go against God's command to help the needy. They call them lazy. Reps want to cut your checks by 20%, bust the unions, and allow the rich to pay much less in taxes. I'm happy with the healthcare decisions. All insurance companies should cover birth control. It will definitely lower the number of abortions. That's not forcing ANY religion to provide bc. It's giving the iinsured the right to choose. I wouldn't want my religion to stomp on my rights.

. Those young people enlisted knowing that they could be sent overseas to fight. The Pres doesn't hand pick who goes. The US military does the picking. You really should learn some history and gov't. Did you know Obama brought thousands of these young men home and out of Iraq? He gave the GO to go in and kill Bin Laden and several terrorists whose main objective was to harm US citizens on US soil. He kept YOU from getting your check cut by 20% last Fall. I'd say he's done quite a bit for you.

OBAMA has done nothing and i mean nothing to help Lee County or any one else but himself. He loves taking trips and spending billions and i mean billions of dollars . He could have give everyone in this county enough money to pay all their bills and be out of dept. He loves spending money he does not have and loves printing money this country does not have. Anyone who thinks this piece of shi??? is great needs to live in my shoes and any other senior who lives from month to month. The food at the grocery store has doubled on his watch and he says things are getting better we have two hundred coal miners who will tell you the same thing they have lost their jobs because of his greatness. He is and complete idiot.

I know that people are discussed !!! & should be, everything has doubled in price & things are still going up, I DO NOT KNOW WHY???? Obama needs to get a handle on
the economy, it is really out of control .... And I say that people are really having it tough since everything has skyrocketed in price with no end in sight. Also I voted for
him. It looks like he could DO SOMETHING about prices!!!!!!!!!!

I will take Palin anytime over the crap that is in there. He has no knowledge of running a country at all. He is the most disgusting person ever been in Washington. No idea of how anything is done he wants to go play and have fun at our expense while people in this country are starving and homeless.We are loseing job hell there is no jobs . If this country does not wake up people we are all going to be living in tents and under trees . But he will amuse you and sing you a song if you can eat that go for it but i cant. I am tired of paying for hiS mistakes i see it at the gas station every day.
Disappointed in Obama

Morristown, TN

#14 Feb 10, 2012
I am very disappointed in how he has run this country & how he promised so much, &
in the last 3 yrs. he has not done anything. And I too believe that we could end up not
having the things we have to have to live. This economy is that Bad in case people
don't know it. And if it keeps going like it is none of us will have ANYTHING!!!!! People
better be seeing this! I'm just calling it the way I see it. Prices just keep going up &
nobody is trying to do anything to stop it. I think that the gas prices should have come
down, but they haven't. WHY??? And the sad part is no one seems to care. And there
really isn't anybody to vote for or to help us.....

To answer your question about gas prices, Obama himself said that under his cap and trade policies gas would necessarily skyrocket and they have. One of his energy advisers said that they needed to get gasoline here to what the prices were in Europe. They're through the roof. And Obama has the "audacity" to turn down the keystone pipeline to satisfy the tree huggers? He refuses to let us go after our own natural resources, making up hostages to middle eastern countries. Are you aware that in the areas of contention there are already mile of pipeline?
Yea, he got a mess handed to him but he ran on promises to fix it along with "healing the oceans." He's added more to the deficit than any other president combined. It's time people stop stop making excuses for him, he ran out a long time ago. He can only blame Bush and many others for so long.
Well put

well put & you are right , you can only blame others so long, & I don't blame people for being discussed with him, because I am. I voted for him, I really thought that he would help our country & bring real change to it, as I'm sure other people thought too. I feel that nobody really cares about this country or the economy. It's sad, but true...
Wow

I still do not see what the vice president pick has anything to do with the president. People say they didn't vote for McCann because of Palin,,, makes no sense to me. Oh for the best part of the joke,,,, they said McCann would die before his term was up, surprise he is still alive last count I had.Democrats run people on FEAR, fear this and fear that. Obama has already destroyed this country enough, get him out of there before America looks like Greece does today on the news.

CONCERNED

Morristown, TN

#19 Feb 18, 2012
I'm concerned about what shape our country & economy is in, & it isn't getting any better. I voted for Obama, thinking that he would bring real change to our country like so many others have promised. They all say they will turn the country around & they don't do anything that they say they will. A lot of empty promises.... And I 'm very concerned about who will get president this time, I just hope that he doesn't make the economy worse than it is now. I really don't see how this country can take another 4 yrs. of this with any president. We really don't have much to choose from. And it's a shame that nobody cares enough about this country & economy to fix it.

WE, THE PEOPLE needs to RUN this COUNTRY Ourselves , we don't have anybody
to choose from & we could do BETTER without a president. WE really could!!!!
