    I don't understand why him and so many people who voted for him seem to want to turn America into Switzerland or Norway. This is a huge, wild land and their system would never work here. America is a unique country; there's no other like it in just about every way and needs to be thought of as such. You can't pretend to do things in America the way anybody else does them because things just don't work the same way over here.

    And really, he should be completely and primarily focused on the economy and keeping our country safe and nothing else, at least for now. People need jobs more than good/free health insurance. Sad but true.

    No, no, no, a thousand times no! He never did and never will. His left wing ideology just wont allow him to be.

    irrelevant inquiry. the fact is that He IS President and the vast majority of the electorate thought that he did and was qualified to be President. not to mention, the fact that many of his policies and moves in terms of foreign policy are not any different from Dubya. he has escalated troops here in afghanistan which is something he said he wouldnt do in the campaign. nevertheless, i support my commander in chief and have faith that we are attempting to do something of necessity here in this God-awful country.

    Thank you for your service to our country. I have to disagree with you on some points. IMO, NOBODY is fully qualified to step into the office of the presidency of this country. The job is way too complex. There is a lot of OJT for anyone elected to the position. IMO, Mr. Obama was elected as much by the left wing news media as by the voters. The mainstream media has become nothing but a propaganda machine for the far left politicians in America. IMO, the similarities in foreign policy moves are dictated by the situation and the rational thoughts and ideas of qualified subordinates, not by any inspiration on the part of either president. There were, IMO other people in the last election who brought more experience and more of the 'pre-requisites' to the table than Mr. Obama.

    I do agree that American troops in the middle east ARE trying to do good in what appears to be a God-forsaken part of the world. Thanks to you and your brothers and sisters-in-arms for your efforts and service to America.

    thank you for the kind words sir. im getting the experience here of a lifetime... leading soldiers is such an honor and very exciting. you make good points about Obama being president - no one is really "qualified," whatever that really means, to be President.. the office itself is a baptized by fire kind of OJT, as you mentioned. nevertheless, President Obama hasnt done anything as far as gun control legislation goes that would anger lawful gun owners like myself. in fact, quite the contrary. Obama lifted the federal ban for CCWers carrying their pieces into national forests and he has no re-enacted any gun control legislation that we had under clinton. people give the president a hard time and love to hate on him. i think, given the hand he inherited, i think he is doing OK. i think one of his flaws is that he tries to please every facet of the political machine... the truth is, you cant do that all the time. like with this DOMA - he is dancing around the issue on how he feels... he just needs to come out and say he supports the institution of marriage between man/woman - or he doesnt. i dont agree with everything he says or does, but I did vote for him and i will continue to support my Commander-in-Chief, be it Obama or anyone else.

    Not exactly . The majority of the electorate that turned out to vote ( sometimes more than once ) thought so . Just clearing that up .:supergrin:

    Obama certainly has more intelligence and qualifications than George W.Bush, without a doubt!

    If I didn’t know you I would think you were joking. Obama is not the solicitation to the problem he is the problem. Along with over ¾ of the people in Washington.

    Firm NO, but many don't care or understand. Yes he is a big part of the problem, along with his minions.
