Watch for yourself as the past unfolds into a future determined by failure, as President Obama lays out his pipe-dream of 'Hope & Change'. Can we even really begin to believe that we bought his empty rhetoric through the simple gimmick of 'Yes We Can'???

All I witnessed during Campaign 2008, as I am still witnessing to this very day within Campaign 2012, is empty promises of 'Hope & Change', which are continuing to be made by a Chicago politician, but now with an added plea of patience coming from the 'Great Barack Obama' unto his dwindling-by-the-day rag-tag followers.

NO DIFFERENCE!!!

I hate re-runs.

If President Obama is so great, then why is his job approval ratings so LOW???

Something must be wrong with Arielle's amazing list, so could it have to do with Obama's sordid gangland connections and all of his scandal cover-ups like Solyndra and Fast & Furious ... etc.!?!?!?

How about Obama legalizing horse slaughter for human consumption within the United States???

Or how about Obama admits National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA 2012 - Patriot Act on steroids!!!) is 'Un-American', but signs it anyways???

Guantanamo Bay anyone??? ... etc.

Sure are a lot of questions with NO answers and grey areas that a battleship could fall in to!!!

Thank you, PinkMindy E.!

I don't know which end of the "spectrum" you come from, and I don't care: I don't live in that tiny one-dimensional universe.

Turning this or that politician into a god changes nothing. Real hope for change lies with the American people -- with our ability to get free of the "spectrum", transcend our artificial divisions, and return to the three-dimensional world, where the enemy is not "On the Left" or "On the Right" but on the TOP.

Was George Washington "On the Left" or "On the Right"? He was neither. That's why he succeeded while we keep failing. We keep ourselves conquered because we keep ourselves divided.

What does it mean, being conquered? It means that our resources are used to make war and kill countless people on the other side of the planet. We are pouring our life blood into death and destruction, and now we are on the verge of creating a far bigger holocaust, all of this under the reign of a politician idolized by "Progressives". This idolatry is killing us!

Arielle..I can't believe you actually believe that list of his accomplishments....if one can call them that...anyway here is a list of UNaccomplishments...:-)

Every statement and action in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.
AND NOW -- HE ACTUALLY WANTS US TO RE-ELECT HIM. WAKE UP AMERICA 2012 IS UPON US.



Consider this:

If any other of our presidents had doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head?
If any other of our presidents joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who's side he was on?
If any other of our presidents had pronounced the Marine Corps like Marine Corpse, would you think him an idiot?
If any other of our presidents had put 87,000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one foreign company had an accident, would you have agreed?
If any other of our presidents had used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87000 American workers unemployed would you support him?
If any other of our presidents had been the first President to need a Teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?
If any other of our presidents had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take his First Lady to a play in NYC, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had reduced your retirement plan holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought it a proud moment for America?
If any other of our presidents had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?
If any other of our presidents had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?
If any other of our presidents had stated that there were 57 states in the United States , wouldn't you have had second thoughts about his capabilities?
If any other of our presidents would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in his home town, would you not have thought he was a self-important, conceited, egotistical jerk.
If any other of our presidents had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, wouldn't you have winced in embarrassment?
If any other of our presidents had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?
If any other of our presidents' administrations had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?
If any other of our presidents had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?
If any other of our presidents had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America , would you have ever approved.
If any other of our presidents had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. You have 9 months to come up with an answer. Of course, by then, he will have all kinds of excuses for his blunders. His latest being his 1st term was a learning experience and now he knows what to do. Or you can give him the message he needs to hear. 'Sorry Obama, you can't learn common sense. The White House is not your personal educational system. And most important, if you're still bent on bypassing Congress at every opportunity, then you have learned nothing.



We said it in 2008 and we say it again. Wake up America! Do not buy into the Obama HYPE!

So people who hate civil rights hate Saul Alinsky. They then connect Alinsky with Obama and think that this will cause us to hate Obama.

Hating politicians is almost as bad as loving them. We should just ignore these con-artists and front-men, and build our movement.

The duel between those who list Obama's positive and negative accomplishments doesn't impress me. If he starts WW III, none of these accomplishments will matter.

"We the people" need to start thinking about our OWN accomplishments. What have WE done to free this country from the grip of politicians like Obama and Bush and McCain and Boener?

The duty of the citizen is to serve as a check on power and corruption. Too many of us have become cheerleaders for power and corruption.

"Boehner Slams Obama's Housing Plan"

I think I see part of the problem! John Boehner serves ONLY 533,000 people. That's like saying, it's a bad idea to remove the fox from the hen house. John Boehner Might blubber about kids and education but that must be because of the treason against his own beliefs.
To want the middle class tax cuts to die and fight tooth & nail for the destructive bush tax cuts tells us everything we need to know about him. HE is part of the depression.

To invoke his name is to show that #1 The person has no idea what s/he representative is doing #2 The person is paid by the corporate movement or #3 The person is a masochist.
I'll guess 99% fall under #1. That's what Fox et al has built and maintained. Keeping the people hating the left with misinformation. That is a proven fact. Let's just all agree to call it what it is. Stop pretending it isn't.

Charles, the enemy is right out in the open. We have a right or wrong answer to supporting the enemy.

Let's keep our eye on our economy and the enemy and quit with the hate the good guy crap, k?

PBS just showed how German corporations treat their people like golden investments where as americans are treated like cheap, dispensable labor. That's just wrong. The German recovery is far ahead of ours.

WHO is the enemy, Jason? Is it the Left? the Right? the Bottom? the Top?

* Who gave us NDA 2012?
* Who renewed P.A.T.R.I.O.T. I & II?
* Who appointed Mr. Pre-emptive War Zelikow to the Intelligence Advisory board?
* Who put Monsanto's VP on the FDA?
* Who gave the Bush war criminals a pass?
* Who escalated twice in Afghanistan?
* Who is making war in Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria?
* Who is trying to strangle Iran?
* Who bailed out the Wall Street criminals?

If this is the Good Guy, then I'd hate to see the Bad Guy!

I've tried to figure out Obama, and I can't. My best explanation is that Obama is a party aparatchik. He serves the party. He's not his own person. He's a front-man for the party. He's a salesman. His job is to sugarcoat the party directives.

And WHICH party does he serve? On the bottom levels of the pyramid, we see two parties, but actually there is only one -- the Perpetual War party, the party of the 1%.

We on the bottom are conquered because we keep ourselves bitterly divided. We fight over wedge issues while ignoring the larger picture. We fight over which is better, Red or Blue, D or R, Left or Right.

No matter who we vote for, we get the same result: more war, more tyranny, more corruption, more debt, more subservience to Israel. Because of this, many people lose interest in elections and lose the desire to fight their fellow citizens. We begin to unite against the real enemy, the 1%.

To prevent us from uniting, the elite give us a It's a hard-cop soft-cop routine. The Republican talks like a lunatic. He scares us into voting for the Democrat. His attacks are so vicious and ignorant that we feel obliged to come to the defense of the Democrat. Fear drives us to the polls. The more we defend the politician, the more we become blind to his flaws.

In reality, there is only one police station. The hard-cop and the soft-cop both work for the same boss. Similarly, there is only one party. Obama, Bush and all the rest are all working for the same boss. That boss is not the 99%.

I don't hate the Good Guy. I don't love him either. He's irrelevant. If we want to change America, we'll have to do it ourselves. We can't expect some politician to do it for us. The politician, in the end, is a puppet. The puppet may wear a big smile, but don't go by that. Look at who is pulling the strings.

Yes, just so Charles

And it's the divisions that prevent most here from seeing that of all of the candidates running for the office of President is Ron Paul.

Corporate fascism, it's people and media's misinformation is our enemy, Charles. Hasn't that been obvious since Reagan changed our entire economic policy for the worse? We went from a consumer economy to a share holder economy over night. Bush put it on steroids to destroy us.

What's the great mystery? The media holds any one that speaks of that reality by their balls. Their fear has been instilled. Go against the indoctrination that we must fight them over there and the media will call it treason.

People have no idea as to the power of owning the media. Every decision has to be formed around how it will react. Corporate fascism is the enemy of democracy. It's real and it's been here way to long.

It is far much easier to personally attack me here on a comment line, rather than to defend your indefensible position concerning President Obama being some kind of hero-god-king or whatever you perhaps 'believe' he might be in your minds.

There is NO current existing exemplary positive evidence to substantiate the Pro-Obama belief-system stance, which is only being wielded by hardcore Liberals, hardcore Democrats and Republicanophobic Republican haters!!

Note: I am NOT a Republican and do NOT have to defend my Green Third Party personal position here!

Obama is so much like a Republican at times that there is ...

NO DIFFERENCE!!!

I have no doubt that this is extremely upsetting for some of you who are 'out there'.

Do you still suffer from Obama Messianic Syndrome (OMS)???

noted...thanks Pink. when I think of Obama being re-elected I want to scream..when I see the clowns during the GOP debates ( except for Ron Paul) who has no hidden agenda and doesn't kiss ass...I scream. Guess I'll be doing a lot of that....and this election if NO JOKE . It is one of the most important ones we've had in many years.

I don't think that a list of accomplishments should contain items that begin with Ordered, Initiated, Proposed, Authorized, Signed, or "67. Many more press conferences and town halls and much more media access than previous administration " (you might as say popular TV show quest appearance - and if that is the case why not mention the number of golf games and holidays he has taken).

Hello PinkMindy E. --

I confess, I do not feel comfortable supporting your position. It would be much easier to support you if your attitude were more tactful!

I do not idolize Obama and I do not hate Republicans -- most of whom are more deserving of pity than hate. However, I continue to see Obama as the lesser evil. It would be much easier to condemn Obama's war-making and his capitulation to the Republicans, if we had a viable alternative. But there is no alternative, other than Ron Paul.

That means that "We the people" are trapped in a corner, and that's not something I feel gleeful about. Many of the idealistic people you taunt have been trapped into supporting Obama out of desperation. I feel a lot of sympathy for Obama supporters.

We need a mass mobilization across the "Spectrum". That means we need to build bridges between the Right and the Left. I'm not sure that taunting people is the best way to do that! -- unless you're simply trying to awaken people and goad people out of their complacency and idolatry.

We do sometimes employ taunts when we try to free people who are trapped in other cults, the Sarah Palin cult, for example, so it's possible that the people trapped in the Obama cult deserve the same treatment.

I like you because you are provocative and you do not mince words. But you are treading on painful feelings, and you seem a little reckless. Isn't there a gentler or more respectful way to raise the issue? Just asking.

Why is it that, in America, fewer young adults have a job than ever before?

Young people are screwed. Only 54% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 are employed - that's the lowest number ever recorded since tracking began more than 60 years ago. There's now a 15% gap in employment between young people and all working Americans - that's also the largest gap ever recorded.

On top of that - they're drowning in over one trillion dollars worth of student loan debt. This is quickly becoming a lost generation of Americans - which might explain why there's an Occupy Wall Street movement out there. The choice is simple: live on the streets or take to the streets.
