outstanding response girlfriend but you know sometimes a good contreversy that is intended to get everyone stirred will sometimes do just that and I might add will get many viewers and lots of conversation.
Regardless though, Thank you for this response it was well appreiated by me. I am not going to pls anybody or kiss booty to say what they want to hear because I voted for obama and would do it again if I thought I had no other choice. I didnt vote for him strictly because he was black but because out of our choices he seemed the most sincere. Otherwise I might not have voted at all. Don't know about anybody else but trying to find a candidate to vote for was a scary process for me.
But again I thank you and applaud you for being brave enough to post the truth eventhough it will be over looked and ignored only because sometimes its not always the truth their after its more like a lynch mob to me lol.
Pls excuse my sense of humor, I did tape the inaguration and his speach and was just watching it the other day I didnt count them but he has accomplished many things that he said he would. Thank you for posting them. One thing I do think is of importance to note is the since of peace we feel unlike when that other guy was in the white house I mean we didnt know from one day to the next if we would be on red yellow or bluegreen aleart hehe. I think we should be thanking God for that. I do believe that "the terrioust" have more respect for obama than they do ole whats his name.
The other way you can tell the lynch mob mentality is by this that I remember it was his first few mos in office and some people were already saying that they regretted voting for him I wondered why after all "he hit the ground running".
and How transparent is the gov suppose to be certianly thier has to be limitations or it threatens security. We got to see him when he and his family took thier vacations and holidays. We know exactly where they went. We got to see when they bougtht the family dog they didnt keep it a secret. We even get to see them when they do charity work and invite other kids to come hunt easter eggs on the white house lawn.
But you know I could have sworn that half of the people who said they wouldnt vote for him again  didnt vote for himin the first place, dont know where that idea came from
but I do remember this. that, it was halleween and a lady in our community I heard ask the kids did they liked obama and if they said yes she refused to give them any candy and shut the door in their faces, see that lynch mob had already begun, lol.
But you know questions like these are tempting to get into but watch what you get into most are just a set up just to see who will fall for them anyway.

Quoting sistercounselor

I certainly believe that Obama was a better choice than Bush, but then again, Obama is RELATED to Bush, as is Bush related to the Queen of England, etc. All ya have to do is google Bush family tree on YouTube and you will see that ALL of our leaders are related. Think that's coincidence? Nope! :) And guess what, they are all apart of a secret society and indeed apart of the NWO. The presidents don't run this country, the Ruling 13 families of the world does. Translation:

Astor, Bundy, Collins, Dupont, Freeman, Kennedy, Li, Onassis, Reynolds, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Russel, and Van Duyn



Do you believe most of everything you see on U Tube?  That wouldl be a mistake.

Honestly, sometimes I am sorry I voted for Obama. Don't stone me Obama fans, but some issues are deeper than his promises. I don't want to get too deep on here but I believe in a "shadow government" which runs the country and soon will run the New World Order, and according to my research, Obama supports. I've also "learned" through research that Obama is their biggest puppet. And if you are a real conspiracy theorist, you believe that the NWO and its leaders (I know I'm a bit crazy but indulge me)  follow a luciferian doctrine. "They": others say that these secret societies, of which Obama is a part, perform rituals which are satanic. If this is the case, YES indeed, I'm sorry I voted for him, I don't care what his skin color is...and yes, its the same color as mine. *Sigh!* I digress...

Quoting billzeke

It's been a year. How is Obama doing???? He promised health care.... It's died along with Cap & Trade. He promised jobs but they have yet to appear. He promised to close Guantanamo. It's still open. He promised transparent government but everything is deal making as usual; still behind closed doors. He campaigned for several canditates and the Chicago Olympics. Nothing came to fruition. Did he keep any promises???? Yes he did. He promised his daughters a dog. They got one....

Quoting Dekan09

Or would you even admit it? Stephen A. Smith on ESPN did an interview with Mark Levin and he's sorry he voted for him. And he's a black man. It would worthwhile to listen to the interview.


Many are sorry they voted him because they are expecting to see herculean changes that are unrealistic to happen as fast as people would like. He's got one more year to make a difference as far as I'm concerned. Could he do better YES. By his own admission he needs to work differently and focus better on stimulating the economy and getting people back to work...What president ever accomplishes all that they set out to do in their first year. If both parties would stop the pettiness, foster healty debate and actually put the PEOPLE first before politics we might actually see some progress.

Was a little taken aback by your statement "and he's a black man."  You state that as if another black person's comment about a black president is validating. We do critize our own sometimes and can admit when someone needs to step up.

You don't like the Daley's; Lyricalsoul????? I lived in chicago for 20 plus years. Had a lot of fun and made a lot of money. I have never seen anyone that could run a city better than those two. They may not know how to read or write but they sure know how to run a city. I was there a couple of summers ago. I have never seen Chicago look more beautiful.....

I remember you responding to my blog before. Since I don't have the money it takes to run for office that part is out. But I do have a voice and I have been making that heard by going to DC and to town halls with my representatives and to those dreaded tea parties.

It's funny that you mention you can't blame one man for the ills of what is going on. They did that to Bush and are continuing to blame him for everything. Case in point..the election in Massachusetts.

When is it going to be the Obama administrations responsibility for things going wrong? They are not grown up enough to do that. They have no clue how to run this country. All the things they say they want done is a laundry list of "their" wants and not what is best for the American people and this country. They have been waiting forever to be in this position. And by God as long as they are in control they will try to ram through whatever they can.

I've responded on this blog before--but I live in Chicago too. I have noticed a lot of the "underlying tones" of this blog--but then this is the good ol US so I'm not really surprised. But I stand by this-- you can't blame one man for all the ills of Chicago OR this country and I never looked at Obama as a cure-all or answer to all the ills of this country. I do not think all that is wrong with this country at this point can be straightened out even in two more terms. And as far as all the things you mentioned going on here in Chicago, Obama, Jody Weiss,or no one politician alone can straighten out all these problems in Chicago,especially the pervasive ones that are destroying minority neighborhoods. Since I live in a neighborhood that is middle class but not serviced as adequately as others in the same city,(only because it is a minority neighborhood), I know that there are a plethora of reasons as to why many of these social problems exist. This problem is also one of the topics of a documentary I worked on in school and the primary reason I chose it is because people need to STOP trying to lump into one bundle why many of these problems exist in a lot of these neighborhoods. And if you are going to blame Obama then you might as well make Daley accountable and his father also for generations and generations of Chicago politics that helped bring many of these social problems about. There IS no one person responsible for all the problems going on in these neighborhoods and there is NO ONE ANSWER to solving them either. If people addressed this as such and started from the beginning of how many of these ills came about then maybe there would be a beginning of "real" change. If you do have ONE answer though you need to probably run for office yourself and show the other guys what they should be doing to make things right.

People hated Bush more than they liked Obama. He lied to get elected. Who would vote for a socialist?

Quoting billzeke:

Based upon the MA. Senatorial race it would appear that a whole bunch of people are sorry that they voted for Obama.....



I'm actually a die hard (R) but I voted for Obama... better than the alternative under those circumstances... I was TERRIBLY worried about the newly proposed health care bill until the MA seat! Now, it's up to US to make a decent proposal regardless of who in the House thinks it's great!

In the words of Obama's idiot press secretary Robert Gibb; UMM, UMM, ERR. I think he was trying to say; What we got here is a 1 term President. I liked what MA. Senator Elect Scott Brown (R) had to say when he said something like. "American taxpayers want their money to go to fighting terrorists not hiring lawyers for them."

I agree! He had to run as a moderate to get elected and we know what a big fat liar he is/was about that! It is amazing how the Dems and the president are making lame excuses. They are delusional! They are blaming everyone and everything except themselves for the rotten job they've done.

Happy 1 year anniversary Mr. President! I didn't think it was possible to turn things around so completely as he and Congress have in a year! Dems and Reps.

If we can win a seat in Mass we can win anywhere. Look out we're comin for ya!

I think Barney Frank needs to be added Irocus. I also believe that Rahm Emanuel, Obama's Chief of Staff, was on the board of directors of FNM back in those days when CEO Tim Raines was busy cooking the books so that everyone could get their huge bonuses..

I read somewhere that people were asking for Rahm's resignation. Wouldn't that be sweet. I wonder what the president would do? He doesn't know how to run anything he's just the mouth piece. He's not very bright I don't think....another humble opinion. *L*
