It doesn't sound so bad, but I never trusted him, and still don't.
Yeah, that I can deal with. However, I don't want my kid thinking he needs to be trying to help our president at age 6. He gets to play a few more years then he can start worrying about fixing the world. lol.

It's all in the perception I guess ( but not really ) but if your going to protest as parent, get your kids involved at least a little. Don't tell them not to go to school then send them out to the yard to play all day while you sit around and bitch for....cryin' out loud

People only read the letters that they want to see even if it spells something completely different that what's actually there

Wow, psychic powers. Next time I need winning powerball numbers I'm coming to you.

It seems folks need something to gripe about, and they'll make up stuff in order to get their daily dose.

If you wanted America to succeed with Bush in office, you were a patriot. If you want America to succeed with Obama in office, you're a socialist. Strange how things change.

Wow, you're finally starting to understand.

Seriously, it's two completely different visions for the future of America and two completely different value systems. I never claimed to have agreed with everything George W. Bush did, but I supported him for the most part. He wasn't our greatest President, not by a long shot, but I wholeheartedly believe that he was only looking out for the best interests of America.

I haven't agreed with a single decision Obama has made yet and I think he's deliberately steering this country away from the original intent of the Founding Fathers, so why should I pretend to support him?
