You poor sheep. Still think one guy runs the show, huh?

Our current president made quite a few remarks as to things he would change if elected. Things specifically resolving Guantanamo Bay to making sure the government didn't spy on it's people to stopping our behavior of progressive war.

1 of 2 things happened... either he's not able to run the show as one guy because that's not how our corporate purchased system works... or B... the first time he was ready to get up and actually change shit, someone politely notified him that the presidential convertible just got out of the shop. :-|

What happened to the american dream you ask?? It came true.

Oh... and Barrack Obama is a lizard man.

Nope.

More of the same b.s.

Those last two paragraphs, wasn't that kind what Obama based his first campaign on? "Change"

I don't think Hillary wins this in 2016. She has all the answers to the problems of the last decade and not the problems of NOW.

Two years is a long time in this arena, but if not her then? It's hers to lose even if just from a contemporary cultural view. Oooh wow, first woman president... Jokingly I see her and Pelosi stirring and incanting above a political cauldron.

I think Rand Paul has a better potential than any other pol if you're going to look libertarian leaning Greg.

He gets ALL the blame because most people believe he's ALL of the government, incorrect as it may be. He shouldn't get all the blame... most of it should be put on the government as a whole... and part of it is actually on the people. I say that because they not only put up with all of this shit... they elected it. Good job America.

What scares me more then anything is neither a left, right, or center president... or his cabinet. The NSA and FBI are something everyone should be even more concerned about. Hell... the FBI changed their mission statement from "law enforcement" to "national security" :-{ Achtung!!

I don't like Rand Paul. I like Gary Johnson.

Why does he ALWAYS have to bring up race? I wouldn't think of him as a black president if he didn't keep bringing it up. Yes, race matters. But to keep throwing things into the context as he does in this second paragraph? Look #44, many of us dislike you, even if we voted for you, specifically due to your political decisions. Maybe your decisions are informed by your race. But if you really want to get beyond it maybe you ought to try focusing on doing just that.

Obama’s election was one of the great markers in the black freedom struggle. In the electoral realm, ironically, the country may be more racially divided than it has been in a generation. Obama lost among white voters in 2012 by a margin greater than any victor in American history. The popular opposition to the Administration comes largely from older whites who feel threatened, underemployed, overlooked, and disdained in a globalized economy and in an increasingly diverse country. Obama’s drop in the polls in 2013 was especially grave among white voters. “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President,” Obama said. “Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black President.” The latter group has been less in evidence of late.

“There is a historic connection between some of the arguments that we have politically and the history of race in our country, and sometimes it’s hard to disentangle those issues,” he went on. “You can be somebody who, for very legitimate reasons, worries about the power of the federal government—that it’s distant, that it’s bureaucratic, that it’s not accountable—and as a consequence you think that more power should reside in the hands of state governments. But what’s also true, obviously, is that philosophy is wrapped up in the history of states’ rights in the context of the civil-rights movement and the Civil War and Calhoun. There’s a pretty long history there. And so I think it’s important for progressives not to dismiss out of hand arguments against my Presidency or the Democratic Party or Bill Clinton or anybody just because there’s some overlap between those criticisms and the criticisms that traditionally were directed against those who were trying to bring about greater equality for African-Americans. The flip side is I think it’s important for conservatives to recognize and answer some of the problems that are posed by that history, so that they understand if I am concerned about leaving it up to states to expand Medicaid that it may not simply be because I am this power-hungry guy in Washington who wants to crush states’ rights but, rather, because we are one country and I think it is going to be important for the entire country to make sure that poor folks in Mississippi and not just Massachusetts are healthy.”
