President Obama should just hang it up

  • Follow Letters

To me, the picture of the president on the Aug. 16 editorial page shows that he wants to burst out crying!

Don’t you think he knows what a mess he has made of this country? But, as usual, he does not know what to do. He can read and speak well, but doesn’t say what this country needs to hear.

The best for him now, if he loves America, is to prepare his last speech stating that he has done nothing for America and never will, step down and go back to his home in Chicago.

As with all presidents, he’s fixed for life! With all the polls out now and looking worse and worse, he should know that he’ll never get elected to a second term!

I'm sory Vernon but

I'm sory Vernon but Presidents don't just hang it up. Where have you been my friend? He is my President. He is your President. In the words of JFK, ASK NOT what your country can do for you...
The problem is not with the President. It is with the Republicans who are too far to the right and the Democrats who are too far to the left. When you have two parties who are unable to work together because they will not compromise then nothing gets done. Lobbyists and special intrest groups are the ones killing this country. It wouldn't matter who the President is. The House and Senate are the ones to blame. We need to throw all the bums out and start over. Maybe in 2012 we can do just that. No incumbents. Politicians will promise you the world. The first rule of thumb is say ANYTHING to get elected. Personally I'm sick of all of them.

Shrimp-The Democrats had

Shrimp-The Democrats had commanding majorities in both the House of Representatives and the Senate for the first two years (24 months) of Obama's administration. Please explain to me how the Republicans derailed his plans. The Republicans did not even have enought votes to block health care refrom or the stimulus package! The Obama admiinistration now controls both the presidency and the Senate. The truth of the matter is Obama lead from behind and didn't have to worry, Pelosi and Reid did all of Obama's heavy lifting while he cheered from the side lines. Now that he is called on to lead the fact that he has no experiance in doing anything other than destroying (like the neighborhood in Chicago where he community organized) he is destroying America. His jobs director, Emelt CEO of GE, has sent GE's entire x-ray divison to China and is partnering with China to build airpalnes in direct competition with Boeing. Obama's administration is doing every thing it can to destroy Boeings ability to complete by it's labor relations board actions. Now when Obama's job direct sends jobs to China you have got to really understand how clueless Obama really is!

True carcraft. The stimulus

True carcraft. The stimulus didn't work and Obamacare makes absolutely no sense to me but what I mean is that lately both parties are so polarized that how is America supposed to move forward when instead of the parties working together it's like a bunch of children running the country. I blame them all including the President for being unflexible whatsoever. How can they get anything done in washington when both parties won't budge.
I have no answers. If I had the money I'd run but I'm not a millionaire. I'm not an Alvin Greene either. LOL

A non - scientific user polls

A non - scientific user polls are not valid.
And for the record again, Republican presidential candidates need to do more than attack President Obama on the economy turmoil if they want to win in 2012. "Flashback" The people knowed the Republicans track record with the economy ( from the last 8yrs of GOP George W. Bush) on creating jobs are fruitless. However, the Republicans have good track record when it come to the economy, not taxing the super rich.

57 Dems and 2 independents

57 Dems and 2 independents until all the recounts were done and Al Franken was seated on July, 27, 2009. Robert Byrd dying, Ted Kennedy dying and died Aug. 25, 2009. Paul Kirk, His replacement was seated Sept. 24, 2009 and only served until Feb. 4 2010. I really wish you people on the right wing would get your facts straight.

Obama will be okay if he loses. There's talk he may replace Montel Williams on the USA network in the 1-2 PM timeslot. Williams is said to be disappointed with the network's insistence he spray his ear diamond with something to make it duller so it doesn't sparkle so much on TV. Obama could step right in after the election.

Re:paragraph 1; Really he is

Re:paragraph 1; Really he is about to burst out laughing--at the American people. paragraph2;Sure, he knows what he has done and he doesn't care. To take America down has been the plan from the moment he was taught to hate us(don't ever forget that so-called preacher of his, Jeremiah Wright's words, "GOD ---- America" and obama's early schooling). Paragraph 3;He doesn't love America----- if he did, he would have done differently than he has for the last three years, and even before then. And paragraph 4; Oh yeah, he's got a check coming from now on. That's something I have never agreed with. I figure once someone has lost a "job", that's it! My hope is he won't be elected again, but, so many people have been fooled by him, and it could happen again................

Michelle Obama for President!

She has a proven track record of spending $10 million of taxpayer money for her own personal vacations in a single year. This during a time of severe fiscal crisis and during a mini-depression.

The words heartless, entitled and queenie come to mind.

Michelle Obama possesses many

Michelle Obama possesses many of the qualities the ultra-left holds dear.

Hypocrisy, a sense of entitlement, generosity for herself with other people's money, and...above all...a lifelong feeling of shame toward her Country. If she runs, I think Jeremiah Wright would make a good running mate, or at least White House Chief of Staff.

By proven track record, I

By proven track record, I assume you have actual evidence, right Chillen?

I can't imagine you would jump to conclusions based on an anonymous source without actual evidence, right?

I mean, that's what the liberal media does, right?

Yes, we pay for her security details, like we do for every First Lady.

Interesting that you would choose "entitled" and "queenie" to describe her, as opposed to other First Ladies, as those are words commonly used to describe people of a certain ra

O, never mind. Waste of space.

burninator. First of all,

burninator. First of all, white house sources say that she did it. Plus ANY reasonable & sane person can see that she has done it.

How many trips has she taken? About 15? Add in extra secret service, ultra-luxury rooms for record #'s of staffers, US taxpayer paid for meals, gasoline for her jets, etc. etc. and you are EASILY at $10 mill. Actually probably more. My guess is double that amount. $10 million is a seriously conservative estimate.

Any reference to racism is only in your own mind. Queenie was used because she views herself as royalty - the Queen of America or is it Mrs. Messiah...... oh well, you can see the confusion.

Thanks for defending her though. Now we see where you stand burninator. Wasting taxpayer money during a fiscal crisis and during a mini-depression is OK as long as you are a liberal.

Can't spit it out, eh burninater? Go ahead, be a stand up guy and make your charge. Here, I'll say it for you.... "race." That's it, right? You want to accuse him of racism because he doesn't support Obama's wife and the way she conducts herself as First Lady. Automatically, it's "racism," isn't it? Even though he never mentioned her race, somehow you just "know" that's what he meant because you're so enlightened.

Yes, Chillen, I know. They are all experts at reading minds and putting words in other peoples' mouths. They're warming up for the next election when ANY criticism of Obama's policies (or lack thereof) will be proof positive of racism.

When they have no ideas and no successes to talk about personal destruction is about all they have left.

Jane18, you are so right. Obama knows exactly what he's doing. He wants to bring this country down and he's doing a good job of it. Now, it's time to take our country back in 2012 and send Obama back to Chicago (or Kenya where he can be king).

--------------
No, harley. Chillen has made it very clear what he considers an "entitlement", and specifically what sector of our population feels "entitled".

When he's talking entitlement, he's not talking about people getting more out of SS or Medicare than they paid in, or Tea Party farm subsidy recipients, or corporate subsidies. He's talking people on "da welfare", and somehow on these boards the large number of rural whites on the welfare get largely ignored.

You're right, it was unfair of me to immediately jump to the conclusion I jumped to. But Lord knows, Chillen has provided ample reason for me to think that was a motivater of his comments.

Anyone who thinks 4 more

Anyone who thinks 4 more years of Obama is a better choice than ANY of the Republican presidential candidates is a fool and would rather see America destroyed instead of admitting they were entirely WRONG about him.

Obama was elected to be president on his hope and change platform, and likewise should be sent packing in disgrace based solely on his results while in office.

'Somehow I just know' things ain't gonna get any better in this country while progressives and liberals are playing their wealth envy/race cards and blaming everyone but their own policies for this mess. Somehow I just know that.

No FHLC, I just "know"

No FHLC, I just "know" because someone put it on a chalkboard on TV ...

In all seriousness, as I said in my 4:18, it was an assumption based on past comments. Harley is right, it is still an assumption, and it should be given no more credence than other "assumptions" or insinuations. Anyone eagerly awaiting the nebulous "caliphate", or the reparations for slavery and/or angry mobs of blacks in the streets that were supposed to happen after 2008, should fully be able to commiserate with my erring as a result of making a stupid assumption.

Assuming they can remember that far back.
