Mr. President, America Doesn't Like You Right Now

| Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

barak-obama-disapproval-ratings.jpg

You better fix this before election time. You better fix this right quick.

Things aren't so good for President Barack Obama today. His disapproval rating, according to a CNN/ORC poll, reached a new high of 55% while the number of Americans who think he is a strong leader has dropped to a new low, 48%.

The consensus is that most people really like Obama personally, but can't get him politically. Almost eight of ten respondents agreed that his likable, compassionare and hard-working, but those numbers pale in comparison to the unfortunate statics concerning his leadership. Only 39% approve of how he is handling unemployment and just 36% approve of the way he is handling the economy. So, it's fine that people find you likable and all, but charisma isn't going to save our country from financial ruin.

The race is coming soon, Mr. President. We put you in office for four years, now you have to prove that you're going to do something with the next four. Show us what you're really made of, sir.

    Perhaps YOU would like to offer suggestions to how he should get things done. Keeping in mind he has to deal with the Senate and House to get quite a few things approved.



  2. 2

    "Right quick" - What, are you trying to appeal to a specific community with your new use of language. Asshole.



  3. 3

    I don't know who would vote for this moron. He is destroying this country, raising taxes, costing us jobs and all he does is vacation, golf, have weekly friday night parties for their friends and give tax payers money to his friends.

    This man really makes me want to puke. He needs to pack up his toys and that stank ass wife of his and head back to Chicago where all the dirty politicans live.

    Re: cynical me

    He had control of the house, the senate and the presidency for over 800 days but he was too busy with his constant campaigning.

    Lie~Attack~Lie~Attack~ Lie. That is Obama's game plan.

    If you plan on putting your hefty political weight on President Obama's throat the least you could do is F'n proof read your posts dumb ass. And personally if the American people think that any single pretty or handsomely brushed candidate can alter the course of our country they are misguided. The accountability is with us YOU KNOW WE THE PEOPLE? step the fuck up yourself Mario… enough is enough… we are lucky to live in this country and everybody should stop blaming politicians, minorities, majorities, rich, poor… maybe we should act like those people lifting the car from that injured motorcyclist and show a little bravery and accountability ourselves.

    Whats up with this? Sometimes i think America's just a taad too stupid to have Barack Obama as their commander & chief. Despite how much he struggles to grow our economy & country in a positive manner, he meets resistance by the GOP who plunder any goals to really move us in a positive direction. And then somehow the president gets the blame. Its as if half of america is so short sighted they can't see the forrest for the trees. How can the presidents approval plummet after the wonderful Jobs Bill proposal? We hear a man saying, here - here's a well thought out and beautiful answer to many of our problems that can be fully paid for - and yet, it's having difficulty being approved? and his approval rating goes down? Our government is illogical, and so clearly not working in it's people's best interests. I suppose that's the frustration we hear communicated by the presidents approval rating, but really - that frustration should be directed at the republicans who try their darndest to keep us from being happy & healthy.

    Re: crustian – Resistance? LOL! I'll say it one more time HE HAD 100% control of the house and senate and the presidency for over 800 days. He could have passed anything he wanted. ANYTHING!!!! he was busy jetting around, throwing parties and taking vacations with that nasty wife of his. SO STOP saying the GOP is the one to blame. This country is falling apart and it is HIS FAULT!!

    Learn the facts before you open your mouth in order to avoid looking ignorant.

    The American public proved what a bunch of fools they were by buying Obamas crap and voting the FOOL into office.All he has done is bring are great Country down.



  11. 11

    Well Perez, you and all the libtards are basically getting what you bought. All the charisma in the world can't buy you true leadership. That was a major source of contention in the 2008 election, it's just a shame that the majority of this country was fooled with the whole "hope and change" thing - they overlooked the fundamental qualities that make a true leader. I'm not saying that McCain was the answer, but seriously people need to get it together when it comes to understanding candidates issues and look through all the BS.



  12. 12

    Re: crustian – He had a Democratic Congress for two years, he got his policies implemented, and America has taken as stand against it. People would rather be left alone than have their money stolen by a government that is so ineffective at using it.



  13. 13

    Re: cynical me – it's called bouncing his ass out of the white house in 2012……hahahahahaha

    stop blaming everyone else for what Obama has not done in 4 years…

    STILL WAITING FOR MY CHANGE…..

    Re: crustian – " here's a well thought out and beautiful answer to many of our problems that can be fully paid for" - really? If you had any basic understanding of history or the economy, you might think twice about blindly accepting your wonderful leader's incompetent policies. How ironic that you call American's too stupid for Obama. Of course, that's how liberals tend to think - people are too stupid to take care of themselves, so the government must do it, right? The government will save us, right? Right???



  15. 15

    If you go with those numbers, his numbers have improved. At least two polls had his approval level at below 40% in the past two weeks. And it must be horribly embarrassing for him to know the guy that just won in NY is the first Repub in like 90 years to win - and his opponent spent like three times as much money. He may be losing the independent vote, but he'll keep the hardcore Dem vote as long as he's the nominee.



  16. 16

    Re: cynical me – Thank GOD they are there to stop the run away train of a President on spending. His new job plan is take money away from other programs that they dont have money to pay for, but we will use that money!!! Wow!! All thought up while on vacation and golf!! Holly Shit!!! Are u serious!!! This guy should be impeached but you guys just dont get it!! He dont know how to run a Business or a COUNTRY!!!!



  17. 17

    Typical Americans; You expect everything to change instantly and when it doesn't, you fail to see that trying to repair a broken country takes time, and throw a collective tantrum instead.
    This is why you're quickly becoming the laughing stock of the planet.



  18. 18

    He doesn't know what the hell he's doing - he never has. Peace the fuck out, Obama.



  19. 19

    [re=5872732]Re: WhyCantIL
    eaveComments[/re] No we are the laughing stock of the planet because we elected in a moron with no business expereince and he brought in all his dirty politician friends.

    A community organizer….WTF is that??? He and his wife for some reason both surrendered their law licenses. Isn't that odd???Hmmm? I wonder why that was? Oh wait, we can't find out the answer because he had all his records sealed.

    We fell for his bullshit. He read speeches well and now we are paying the price.

    He can't fix shit. No experience in the white house now. Just dirty politicians.

    Get the F out Obama!



  20. 20

    I would like to know who the F _ _ _ they are asking this question…. The Tea Pary? I still like and support Obama. I terrified what will happen if the crazy right wing gets into the White House. You think things are bad now…just wait.

    I just wished Obama would get in there face for a change you cannot compromise with ass holes. The right wingers don't care about anyone but the rich and the rich oil companies



  21. 21

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – Go fuck yourself! If we're the laughingstock of the planet then why do we run the world? Why do we have the highest GDP of any country IN THE FUCKING WORLD? Why do more people apply to live in the US than all the countries in the world COMBINED? Also, what the fuck are you doing on an American website? Fucking idiot!



  22. 22

    Re: MRSMOMOA

    Really? Do you pay attention and study what is going on in the government. Democrats are voting for Repiublicans. What does that tell you? Shut off MSNBC and see what is really going on. If you don't get your head out of the freckin sand, you better start to learn Chinese. They will own us.

    Tell me this…..so the right wingers are the rich jet owners right? OK so then why is it that democrats like to say that the right wingers are the red neck hill billies? So which are they? Red necks with 1 tooth, or are they the rich jet owners?

    Quit with the liberal talking points. You had your chance with the moron in office and he is destroying the country. Time for the American people to take control and boot that moron and his dirty politician friends out.



  23. 23

    Barry, if you had tried to fix the economy with the same fervor with which you rammed your economy-crippling healthcare down our fucking throats then maybe we wouldn't still be at 9% unemployment and the country wouldn't hate your half-white ass. People in all 57 states hate you and why shouldn't they? You've done everything in your power to destroy America and bring us down.
    You WILL get voted the fuck outta office in November 2012. Mark my words.



  24. 24

    I'm sorry but he sucks as a president….



  25. 25

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Im not american so Im not sure about this, but I thought Bush was the downfall of American economy for putting you guys in like what? 14 trillion dollars debt? This is totally an honest question, because I really don't know much about Obama, apart from the occasional news we get..What makes him worse then old George?



  26. 26

    Some people never liked him in the first place!



  27. 27

    Re: Heaven_Oblivion_Bliss – Where do I begin? Barry Obama hates America and capitalism. Ol' George didn't. Barry apologizes for America. George never apologized for anything. Barry hurt us with his healthcare plan. Barry is a total pu$$y with the Chinese. The bottom line is business people do not like Barry. They are sitting on their chips until he's kicked out cuz they don't trust him. Our economy is essentially frozen while he's in office. Liberal Americans elected a janitor to do the CEO's job.



  28. 28

    Obama is a "class A", incredibly talented orator and very gifted bullshit artist. He should be a motivational speaker. He is in the wrong business.



  29. 29

    I LOVE OBAMA> FUCK YOU ALL REDNECKS!!



  30. 30

    Re: JennyJJJ
    Just because President Obama is a democrat and the house/senate had more democrats than republicans does not mean HE as a sole person had control of either. I suggest you educate yourself on how the government works, you could even refresh your 5th grade government class if that would be easiest.
    Just because they are from the same political party does not mean they have the same agenda or even the same ideas.
    Do I wish he'd done more? Yes, but I also understand he's done the best he could with what he was given to work with.
    Why doesn't anyone applaud what he's done so far?



  31. 31

    I love Obama! The Bush tax cuts have taken trillions of dollars out of circulation. BUSH/CHENEY caused ALL of our problems. Don't be a Republican Sucker. Big oil is laughing it's ass off at the stupid fools who vote for their huge tax breaks!!!!!!!



  32. 32

    Don't blame me, I voted for Hillary!



  33. 33

    Unfortunately I voted for him, never again.

    Unemployment here in California is over 12% and my unemployment is going to run out by the end of the year. I do thank the Congress for pushing through extended benefits so many folks can get up to 99 weeks (more is really needed, we are really in a depression but people will not admit it).

    I did vote and campaign for Janice Hahn for our congressional district but only because she was good at representing her district on the LA City Council. Otherwise the Dems are not getting a penny of my scarce money or my vote in 2012.



  34. 34

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Speaking as someone who isn't from the US I think that voting Obama as your president was one of the smartest things you guys did. I find it hilarious that you guys think Obama is the reason for your country falling apart. It was Bush and Clinton who are responsible for the downfall of your country, allowing Banks to loan out money to basically anyone and invading Iraq. If you noticed Canada voted against both of those things which is why our economy is in much better shape than yours. Also I do not understand as to why you guys are against universal health care. Its been proven that free health care increases your populations overall health. Eldridge Cleaver - At the moment you guys really are the laughing stock of the world. I cannot tell you the amount of times that I have read about American politic and laughed and had to make sure I wasn't reading a joke. Although I am glad that Donald Trump decided not to run, I don't think that I would have ever been able to take you guys seriously if you had elected him. I really do hope you guys smarten up and re elect Obama because I believe he is doing the best that anyone can do with the state your economy is in.



  35. 35

    Re: really?!? – Its really too bad that Obama had to become president when your country is in one of its worst economic crisis (not his fault though), because he really could have done wonders for you guys! I think you American need to stop criticizing your government and start to believing in it because that is the only way you are going to succeed at the moment. Also I am really not trying to offend Americans with what I have said, I just think you guys need to take a look around the world as see why other countries are succeeding, and maybe try and follow what they are doing because what they are doing is the right thing at the moment, and you guys are no long the Power House of the world you are slipping further and further each day! And to be honest that is something that scares me, as a Canadian it was comforting knowing that we had a strong educated country next to us!



  36. 36

    He sucks. So sorry I was one of the sheeple who believed in his hope and change. He's spent more time vacationing on our tax dollars while he doesn't do anything. I'm disgusted and would vote for anyone besides him. I'd rather see Perez Hilton as president. Obama is a fuckwad and a waste of space. I hate him. Hate hate hate him! And to you other people from places other than America STFU. If you think you have an idea of how to fix our problems I'd love to hear them. He's not kept one promise. From gay marriage to transparency he's full of shit!



  37. 37

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Get educated buddy, all of those are pretty simple answers, its because the US has big FUCKING population and you buy enormous goods, your GDP is really nothing to be proud of.

    And you run the world? Really? Its comments like that make you disliked. Trust me your global imagine has improved since obama. Your may take something like bowing to a king as a sign of weakness, but in their culture its called respect you have to give some to get some.

    And more people apply to the US than the rest of the world combined? Could you please share where you found this source? Because it doesn't sounds right. But if its true, again it has to do with your population. Not standard of living look at all global rankings its nothing to boast about.

    Accept that your economy is fucked. Pointing fingers at a president will do nothing. Your programs were I'll admit not that long ago the best in the world, but quite frankly they're outdated. Take a look around other countries social programs are working great. I'd suggest doing the same. Your two party political system has hit a stalemate. Your senate is too busy bickering about birth certificates that nothing can be done. Your opposition parties are too consumed with taking the other out to get done.

    I'd suggest getting your facts from the '99 billion sold' sign at Mcdonalds. Because your logic really is laughable.



  38. 38

    If other countries think we are a laughing stock maybe they should put their hands back in their pocket and look to Canada or china or Saudi Arabia to bail them out? And maybe we should stop all the pork barrel programs as well. The healthcare deal was a joke. We can't afford Medicaid and now we are going to require Americans without jobs to purchase insurance? Cobra costs a grand a month. At the rate obamas working we will all be at the soup kitchen lining up for bread and water.
    I say penalize companies that outsource our jobs. Tax them so it gives them incentives to bring jobs back to the USA. I'd gladly take GW back in a heartbeat. He was proud of America , faults and all. He may not have made all the right choices but he loves the USA something that b. Hussein Obama does not. He dogs us out with a smile on his face and it's pathetic. Sad and scary. If he wins I will just be livid. Let's see how much money he spends again to lie to our faces. When Michael Moore is saying you suck you must really suck.



  39. 39

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Well, if you knew anything about politics or the current economic situation of the world you would be puckering up too to the Chinese rather than making discrete racial slurs. Ever heard the expression when China awakes the world will quake?

    Again if you understood world social programs past texas, you would know that the US spends per capita more money on health than any other country in the world and that you're the only developed country not to have universal health care. Quit being stuck on what is or is not 'American' cause its shit like that is ruining your country. Its actually laughable the WHO ranked developing nations health care ahead of you. If you ask me 'Barry?' should have shoved that health care a little harder down your throat because finally then you would stop bitching about stuff you don't understand. Bottom line is, I'm going to go enjoy my free pap smear and pay some taxes when I get my next paycheque, then I'll laugh my way across the border and enjoy some cheap shit because your dollar is devaluing.



  40. 40

    Re: JennyJJJ – Jenny doll, I'll break it down simple for you since apparently your brain is fragile. Taxes= social programing= more education= more employment. I'm sure the man doesn't throw parties every friday, if he takes a 3 day holiday once a year, its really not that big of a deal. Its not like each golf ball he is hitting is moment lost. You should understand this as you as well have had some stressful jobs, I'm going to guess by your comment that perhaps working hard at Mcdonalds.So an example for you is when the drive through is closed you cant really sell a big mac. Also you need to put money into advertising your big macs so that they sell (its a metaphor for taxes and jobs teehee). Now I'm not American, but I'm pretty sure youre not facist, so i dont think his 800 days is quite the regime youre describing. You might want to question senate for not passing anything. I suggest money into education, so you Jenny Bear will have wider understand of your own political system and economics are run. No fries for me thanks!



  41. 41

    Re: gsjules – Just so you know, Canada is bailing other countries out. We were also in Afganistan with you. However, we didn't join you in Iraq which might be why you have no money, cause well, oopps there were no weapons of mass destruction….. Its ok we all make mistakes.



  42. 42

    I won't vote for him again. BIG MISTAKE.



  43. 43

    The last poll i seen mths ago he was lower than 40s. We need to keep him so he can give more money to the banks, bc they need another plane. Or health insurance on pre condition, which insurance have decided they will stop offering plans to policy holders family and has stated they will jump through loop holes. The system is broken! Bush did spend a lot of $$$$$$$$$$$ but he had a war,+ he gave out more tax refund. So what is obama's reasons for such spending? In four yrs???? ILL TAKE CLINTON OR RONALD BACK!



  44. 44

    Re: Heaven_Oblivion_Bliss

    We are 14 trillion in debt and while Bush spent money, Obama has spent more then all the other presidents COMBINED! Bush had Katrina and Sept 1tth so he had a lot of reasonto spend but Obama just spends to take care of his fan base. Unions and his welfare voters.

    Re: really?!? – Really Doll, being that you are not an American, I think you sure have a lot to say about our politics. Your views show that you are 1.) liberal 2.) very uninformed.

    Obama has spent more then all the other presidents COMBINED! Do you get that?

    I happen to be a PharmD so for you to make rude comments about my brain just shows your lack of a viable argument.

    People who live off the system is the very reason there are riots all over Europe all the time.Your taxes are out of control because of all of the blood sucking leeches.

    Obama is an inexperienced moron who just wants to get more people sucking off the system so they keep voting him back and his friends back into office.

    Stick to your own politics. You obviously have no clue about American politics.



  48. 48

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – You won't be running it for much longer… Look at Russia and China, they're surpassing you in virtually every aspect of business and growth. African countries are increasing their productive capacity everyday.China will soon be the most powerful country on the planet, and all America can do is watch.
    And you clearly know nothing about economics… It doesn't matter how high your GDP is when you look at the % growth. I think you'll find the BRIC economies are greatly surpassing you with their GDP growth. There's will soon be higher than yours.
    But what can I say, you're just a dumb American, I couldn't really expect you to know any better.



  49. 49

    Re: really?!? – Americans will never realise this. In today's NOW society, it doesn't matter what Obama had to deal with, all they see is they fact that his being elected didn't instantly change things. They'll vote in a Republican come the next election, nothing will change, and the cycle will continue. They'll never learn.



  50. 50

    Right now? I have hated this president since day 1! I think what he really needs is a day time talk show since he seems to be on TV just about ever day telling lies.

  55. 55

    Re: really?!? – You're not getting free health care, dipshit. You get taxed to fucking death so you are paying for your health care. LOL There is no such thing as free health care. SOMEONE is paying for it. So, enjoy your "free" pap smear that either you or someone else paid for.



  56. 56

    Re: really?!? – Preach, I love it !.. Can't stand when people just blame one person for a whole countries fall… I wish people would be more open minded and research more, instead of hating someone solely on if they are democrat or a republican.. I do feel we have lost a lot of power and slipping further :{



  57. 57

    Re: JennyJJJ – Jenny Bean,I apologize for my reckless comments. Now surely as a pharmD working as a health care professional you are one of the only people profiting from Private Health Care. Its cool, you need money. But the average low income family could benefit not having to borrow money for a check up. The rest of the developed world has done it since the 60's it actually works, you being an educated person have probably read scholarly articles to know that.



  58. 58

    Re: JennyJJJ – While we do pay more in taxes I'll admit. The 7% with each purchase REALLY?! isn't that big of a deal. I dig deep into my pockets for 9 cents with very coffee ITS MADNESS. Now low income families get cheques every year giving most of that money back. We also do get tax deductions each pay cheque, but again overall it is a MUCH cheaper for the federal government than private health care. Universal health is the lowest cost possible because there is no market to allow increase of prices.

    But how could I forget the social program riots in Europe! Norway and Sweden are looting as we speak! All their accessible healthcare, post secondary education and high standard of living are causing utter chaos. If you're referring to the UK and Greece those too situations are not applicable, sorry tuts.

    Well Obama has spent more money than all the other presidents combined, good point. Some of it probably has to do with inflation, Wash and Linc probably didn't have to spend more than a few hundred schillings to run the country. You guys are at the point of repairation, its going to take social spending to fix it. And quite frankly the ol' american way will not be able to dig you out of this hole. Your system is outdated its in dire need of change.

    Re: JennyJJJ



  59. 59

    Re: JennyJJJ – As for me, maybe I'm Liberal. Even that is a stretch, I just think pointing the finger at one man is rediculous. Your country said they wanted change, Obama tried, only for his ideas on health care to be shut down by rednecks calling him a communist. Look around other countries have been prosperous despite a recession, I suggest you look at them for a viable solution.



  60. 60

    Re: crustian – You need to educate yourself before posting. The GOP has had control of the House for only 9 months. Obama could do whatever he wanted his first two years. And what did he do? Increase the national debt by $5 trillion dollars and shove a health care plan down our throats that's going to destroy our health care system, bankrupt us, and erode our freedoms.

    And how as he been "trying to grow our economy"? By increasing regulations on businesses and increasing our debt? The main thing blocking our economy is Obama himself. Employers aren't hiring because they are uncertain what's going to be coming down the pike from this Bozo. They don't know if they'll be able to afford that employee in a year. His jobs bill is a joke. You don't increase taxes during an economic downturn. Also, government does not create jobs, the private sector does. If he was really serious about creating jobs, he would decrease the capital gains tax.



  61. 61

    Re: Lyyli – Well put.



  62. 62

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – No people aren't throwing a tantrum because the country isn't fixed. They're alarmed because the country is heading toward a cliff and Obama is stepping down on the gas.



  63. 63

    Re: MRSMOMOA – It's called spelling and punctuation. Look into it.



  64. 64

    Re: Heaven_Oblivion_Bliss – Let me enlighten you. In 8 years, George W. Bush increased the debt by $3 trillion ($6 trillion to $9trillion) (and I'm not happy about that). In just a little over 2 1/2 years Obama has increased the debt by $5 trillion ($9 trillion to $14 trillion). And that you can directly blame on him because he had control of Congress his first two years. He has drastically increased the size of government, increased job killing regulations, and pushed through a bankrupting health care bill before it had even been written even though he had promised to put all bills online 5 days before a vote.



  65. 65

    Re: really?!? – First off, there is no such thing as free health care. Someone has to pay for it. And everywhere universal care is implemented, there is rationing. To be clear, Obama's not getting blamed for creating the mess. It's clear that occurred before he took office, but he is getting blamed for not getting us out. That's because he has done the equivalent of putting gasoline on a fire to put it out. He spent nearly a trillion dollars on stimulus that mainly was a payoff to all his cronies in private sector unions. And he now admits those shovel ready jobs weren't so shovel ready. The main cause of the economic crisis is the federal government encouraging lenders to give mortgages to those who couldn't afford them. This started in the Carter administration but was ramped up in the Clinton administration.



  66. 66

    Re: really?!? – I could not give a shit less about our global image. Should an individual do things just to be popular or do the right thing. I hope you agree that a person should do the right thing. Then why should a government be any different? Now, I'm not saying the US always does the right thing. Obviously, that's not the case, but we shouldn't do things just to be popular in the eyes of other countries.



  67. 67

    Re: really?!? – And who helped devalue the dollar? And is your pap smear really free? You Canadians pay far more in taxes than we do. I have a personal friend who's a software engineer that moved down here to get away from the taxes. He would always say, "Canada's a great place to live if you don't work.".

    Re: really?!? – Plenty of money is being put into the education system. The problem is that primary education is controlled by unions and secondary education is controlled by liberals. We are not educating our children and that's why we end up with a President like Obama.

    I honestly love how everyone seem to know how to run a damn country. 2 years you're asking for Obama to do something magical. jobs, war, healthcare, and etc. Now which one or how many was he suppose to fix within two years? Please let me know because everyone seem to have a fucking clue in how to. It always get worse before it gets better. Sometimes you have to borrow money to get out of debt. It's amazing that people think it's so damn easy to run a damn country. Let one of the evil ass looking republicans get into office and soon the bells will be ringing!

    Re: JennyJJJ – You are the moron. He has not destroyed anything. I don't see anyone doing anything but talking "S but no solutions. When "others" were in charge what in the hell did they do for this country. I will tell you, NOTHING!!!!!

    What I find very telling is the comments from ppl that are not American. They are on the outside looking in, they have clarity they arent for dems or repubs, they are just stating their opinions. I find it ver funny that JENNYJJJ calls one a liberal just because of her opnion, like its some dirty word that she should be ashamed of. First of it is a joke that we are the ONLY INDUSTRILIZED NATION not to have health care. It is a fact we spend FAR more on health care than any other country and thats with it being privatized. Now if that were so right why would we be spending more? And ELDRIDGE CLEAVER we are the laughing stock of the world take the wool off your eyes. We are not some great unyielding super power of the days gone. We fucked up!!! We let many, many jobs go overseas. You think Obama being respectful to a chinesse diplomat can come anywhere near close to ALL THE JOBS WE have shipped over there? YOU THINK HUGE tax breaks for the ppl who put us in this mess is OK? What about all the loopholes that Repubs dnt want to do away with? Now thats all of a sudden in the colum of raising taxes… Are you kidding me? So let me get this straight everyone has to pay their fair share but corporations and the wealthiest 1%. Im self employed when I heard what Jimmy Buffet tax percent is I could not believe it! You should be doubled over in rage that these ppl dnt pay their fair share!

    PT 2. How do you feel about billion dollar companies seen as HUMANS so they can go off our tax code? Look its not even ALL the rights fault OR the left and it ESP isnt jus Obamas fault. To blame ONE SOLE MAN for all of this is niave. Rent INSIDE JOB PEOPLE IT WILL TEACH YOU A LOT. I dnt think Obama has made all the right decisions, but when I see what The Tea Party is trying to do I cant even believe they are Americans. If you dnt want to help anyone then we will look like a third world country with ppl living and dying in the streets its a fact. Take a look at the countries who have no social programs. Also have you looked at the HUGE DIFFERENCE of pay between the wealthy and the "middle class" In the last ten yrs since the activation of the Busch Tax Cuts the richer have gotten richer while the poor get poorer… Look where we rank in that division and you will be very surprised countries like Uganda have a better pay disparity than America. All I can say is many things will have to CHANGE to get this country running right again and it will never happen because we have two parties that do not want compromise ESP THE TEA PARTY AND DIE HARD RIGHT AND LEFT PPL. You bring back all the jobs that were sent overseas for NOTHING but the gains of a few capitalist that wanted 4mill instead of 1 and maybe JUST MAYBE we will get back on our feet, but until that happens you better learn how to kiss the chinesse ass just like Obama!

    ALSO AT JENNYJJJ HONEY I highly doubt you make anywhere near the money for the tax hike Obama wants to put on the wealthiest 1% So quit going against your own causes. That tax hike has nothing to do with you why are you fighting it? I know its alll good ppl like Jimmy Buffet pay a 17% tax rate while others pay 30 and make no where NEAR hwat he does! Too bad we cant afford the same accountant as him right? I would be banking in tax loopholes something repubs seem to be for even though at the other side of your mouth you are screaming for everyone to pay their fair share.
