Not something terrribly surprising.  He is a coward and a liar.  I am sure he is popular with libs becuase of that.. but the US is tired of his CRAP!

He was never powerful.  He is a very poor excuse for a leader of any kind.  He has made America weak, just like he is!

We just need Obama to make good decisions before he exists. He has been a miserable failure since he took office. One bad decision after another.

 Obamacare will bring us all to our knees, and Obama will be back on top.... Anyone else lose their policy that only cost $450 and had a copay of 40$?  Now it will cost me over $900 for coverage that costs me 40% plus a higher deductable.....     "you won't lose your current coverage, and if anything your costs will go down"  This guy is classic Washington.

When will the American public wake up to what Obama and the Socialist Party of America are doing to this once great country?

Obama needs to go, most powerful a year ago what a joke, more like most destructive to American people. America can't get rid of this buffoon soon enough.

Seems everyone else in the world knows what Obammmaaa is about.  He has lied to the American and who knows what kind of lies he has told the world leaders.  When are the liberals going to wake up and realize this guy is nothing but a liar and fraud!  Get him out of office and recent the ACA and over haul it so that it actually is affordable.

you can't claim to not know anything when the crap hits the fan and be the most powerful man on earth at the same time.  Please look at this man.  He is a egomaniac and if you believe he's a good president you are blind to the facts.  Unfortunately the news is just now pointing out the things we all knew before about him.  We're screwed if we keep following his lead.

Obama was just told a week ago he was president. He was shocked.


He found out while shopping for a Halloween costume, he told moochelle he was going trick or treating as the president this year.
