Calling all Lib-Tards, special session.
 Ok in this special session of our Lib-Tard meeting I would like to address the opposition that this President and his administration has had to face since the first day in office. I hear people say that he has not been met with all that much. I personally do not remember an administration being met with more brick walls and blatant opposition. 
So tell me guys what do you think has he been given a fair chance by the G.O.P? Or has he had to fight for everything so far?

But we must band together to stop those silly gay people from getting married or serving our country without hiding anything. Not to mention, we need to keep all those darn Mexicans out of our country because they are stealing all of our jobs. I mean they come here illegally, taking all of our stuff. These are way more important topics than education.

Wow a special session.

Anyone who denies or refuses to acknowledge the mess he inherited is probably not worth talking to. That, if nothing else, should be something that everyone agrees on, IMO.
Wow a special session.

 So in another poll Pat said he disagreed with the opposition I feel like He has been met with,that he was actually celebrated even before taking office. Well that is true celebrated by the ones who voted for him of course. But also and more importantly celebrated by people around the world. Which I believe speaks volumes for the respect we lost around the world during the Bush regime. (yes I said regime).
 
And as far as the G.O.P and the opposition and disrespect they have shown is obvious. Have  you ever seen a democrat walk into the State of the Union address wearing a you are a liar necklace? And God knows they could have under President. W. 
#3 | 1463 days ago

Glenda, you are suffering from Short Term Memory.  Granted he has faced opposition.  But he has had the media kissing his ass for 3 1/2 years.  As far as the MSM and the Left wing propaganists, he is doing nothing wrong.  You have to go to Fox to hear his negatives.  And he controls both the Senate and the House so he is pushing through his agenda.  Fortunately there are some committees that still have Reb, representation and some things are being questioned.

What is going to be interesting to me is how much support the White House and NP will give Charlie Wrangle!

 The media is not the ones that run this country. So what does the media have to do with the opposition he faces from the other party?

Okay, so I just read what Pat wrote, and i, surprisingly dont completely disagree. I think he may be overstating the respect issue a bit, but the rest is pretty accurate. It may not be right, but it is what it is. He was celebrated for winning and that has carried over into now with SOME of the general public. I don't think that is the case with Congress. Their opposition for him has been quite clear since the beginning.
Wow a special session.

oh boy..this is gonna be interesting......IMHO......first off.....this president has faced more divirsity than any president in the past 50 years  barring FDR and Reagan.......  difference is..he is a man of color, the first and there are still so many haters out there just because of that ...... This president inherited a huge mess with all the degerulations, economic disaster of wallstreet banks, and every other industry...he is being blamed for unemployment and every issue we have currently.....look at the groth index charts people...get them from 2000 to current..lok at the job rate,,and when it started falling..it started when the economy startd falling....these are just facts and issues that BOTH parties deal with......  what sucks is this man is being ctitiqued more because of his color than his platform..and that sucks....you would think america has come farther than that by now....and its a disgrace......
     the media does run this country because the people with the money run the media... the views of these people that pay for the advertising run what we hear......if you do not think that is true....look wh the figures of each station are and what they represent.......
     going to give one example.......last sunmmer isreal was torn a new one for bombing gaza.......we were shown pictures of the school and neighborhoods attacked.....what we didnt hear on most of the news stations is that Isreal was attacked twice before they retaliated.......if we were bombed ,dont you think we would retailate? of course we would..but Isreal was made out to me the bad guy by the media......and because most people do not read up on issues they believe the shove down your throat politicing of the media and what each news network represents.....  its all a huge political game ..everyounce of info we receive has a bias.....you have to research to really get the truths...and most people dont........
        back to our president.......we blame him for many things..things that are not his fault  things that were inherited....and things that are the other branches of governments fault...a 2 party system isnt working..we willcontinue to go back and forth with 4 years of a democratic government then 8 of republican, with little changing because the congress and senate willcontinue to fight each other and not work together..unitll we elect people who truly represent us...this is going to continue....and we all know that money gets people elected and oney is big business and special interest..... untill we have a 3rd party not much will change in this country...regardless who is president......I strongly believe this president has the people's interests at heart.... i think he truly cares about the little guy, small business and a whole claas of americans that are becoming a minority..the middle class....but as long as we have 2 parties fighting , and corp america representing our politicians and pulling the strings,,nothing will realy change or be resolved......so really the question is...what should we do??

What other party?  He controls both sections of Congress.  He has the votes available to do whatever he wants.  If he can't pass his agenda it is because of the few Dems that 1)either have the gall to not follow the party line or 2) are holding out for a sweeter deal.  Whichever the case may be.  The President will have a very different looking Congress next year to work with.  There will be "change" .  Both parties will lose incumbants because of Americans distrust and dissatisfaction with Congress.

 No the media influences peoples opinion, and that is it. So I will disagree with both of you on that one.  The media does not go up on the hill, pass laws and decide who will and who will not be helped the government. Nor do they decide anything else as far as the workings of the government.

 I am well aware of how politics are ran. Let's take where I live for an example. Tysons, buys the politicians, they contribute millions to the candidate of their liking, thus in return buying air time on the networks with the contributions. Thus reaching people with the messages that Tysons wants people to hear, therefore influencing the decision but in the long run not making it.

Money does make the world go round. Big business makes the world go round. Big business uses the media as a tool. All true statements. But the political media are skewed one way or the other most times to cater to one groups demographic/followers or the other with the purpose of serving their respective agendas. Nothing more. Fox News wants that lady that watches them religiously to hear their side only and agree with them. CNN wants the same for their viewers.  What she is saying that the media may influence the thoughts and ideas of the public, but they are not sitting on capitol hill passing legislature merely supporting it. In the end, Congress is responsible for their own actions.

But we must band together to stop those silly gay people from getting married or serving our country without hiding anything. Not to mention, we need to keep all those darn Mexicans out of our country because they are stealing all of our jobs. I mean they come here illegally, taking all of our stuff.

 God I wish I could make this the top comment.  You are so right lets make basic human rights that we are granted in the constitution something we need to fight over and vote on.  And in the mean time lets really kiss this country good bye because we told a whole generation of kids they weren't important enough to get them ready for a future. And when our kids dont have the tools they need to succeed then we WILL see the losing of jobs to countries and kids that were properly educated. Then I guess THEY can say thank you American politics.

 I will agree on that, but it still doesnt mean that the media rules the Government.  It does not it influences it.  If we had a one media nation then yes it would but we do not.

Libraries (the internet these days) and learning at home
Teachers can only do so much with the time and resources they have, and I think parents don't take enough of an initiative for their childrens' education.
Combine that with the entitlement that children these days are brought up with, and it's no wonder kids aren't motivated to learn.

 I agree with what you are saying, I do. But as long as children have to rely on the public education system as their main learning source then this system needs to be the best in the world. Not behind some underdeveloped countries.  Janie spends hours at the library and on this computer but still needs the classroom inter action to do the majority of her learning. 
#32 | 1463 days ago

Yes, but we are spending WAY to much money taking care of individuals who illegially come here.  Money being spent on healthcare, education, police services, even jails that could be spent on education.   AND  we have grown in our society to expect educators to "fix" all our home problems.  But don't discipline my child.    Many families do not take the responsibility of helping educate their kids.  Babies having babies, individuals who feel they are "entitled" but are not willing to work to see that their child behaves,  shows respects for teachers. 

Individuals who choose to be teachers have all my admiration.  It is a CALLING.  They are not respected enough, paid enough and supported enough.  Start taking care of the illegal immigrant, drug, teen pregancy problem.  Then send that money to education.

Thank you to all the Educators in the Q.

That may be true.. I just never trusted teachers and professors in their ability to convey the information in a way that would be benefiical for the growth of knowledge of the class
And the public school system is a "socialist" program, and we live in a country where people would rather be able both complain about the state of these types of things (public schools, police and fire protection, support of military members and family) but moan that they don't want to pay the taxes to make these things better

its not just on illegal services  we have an epidemic of fraud in the system....There is a HUGE mafia cartel of medical fraud happenig in this country...from almost every country around..from nigeria, to armenia, to china, to  you name it..they set up "medicsl companies" and get medicare dollars and rip off billions and billions of dollars......This administration is the first administration to do something bout it...thy have cracked dwn and cracked down hard.to the tune of 700 billion plus thus far.......if people actally read the health reorm...they would see this is part of it. stopping the cartel fraud,.&.it actually supports NOt allowing medical treatment for illegals ....with the exception of emergency care till stable..  its is bringing issues you just said to the forefront and trying to stop it,,so we do have the funds to run education, healthcare for those of us here legally,and make spending more legit...

I've got to say, personally, I don't think things are going to change dramatically while Obama is in office.  Not because I think he is ineffective or has poor ideas.  Quite the opposite ... I feel that he could be a very effective leader and agree with many, if not most, of his ideas.  I just think that there is so much opposition and so much politicking going on that it's virtually a sabotage mission from the opposing side.  
The problem is that politics today is about winning ... it's not about what's actually best for the nation or doing the right thing.  Every party is guilty of it in it's own way.  However, I do think that the president is actually trying to do what's best for the country right now (whatever his reasons for doing so, genuine or political, I don't care to argue that at the moment, so shut it), and the offenders at the moment are members of the GOP and (giggity) Teabaggers.

Yep, and fat cat Dems who will not vote for his programs unless their state receives "specials" and ethic violators who are stealing the spot light are not offenders.

a lot of us care. my kids are long done but i still care.  when ALL the parents start to give sh*t things will improve. my neighbor is a lower grades teacher. just before summer vacation her school had an open house for parents, grandparents and other relatives to come in and see what the kids had accomplished. the kids spent an entire day cleaning and organizing and planning a short presentation.   out of her 31 students, only 2 had people show up.  1 parent and 1 sister of a student.  when is someone going to step forward and plant a large boot in the collective a**es of these so called parents and guardians?  that is needed as much as  or more  than funding.

I think he has had a little extra heaped on him....every President inherits some yuck from the previous administration..I'm not pointing fingers either at who has left the biggest mess...( of course shrubbery comes to mind all of the sudden)...and from what I have seen it usually takes 8 years to get back to where we want to be before the next mess is made....I will say, I don't always agree with our Commander in Chief, but I also don't have his job....he still has my full support.....I just want our TROOPS HOME SOON

I think this president might have a little more on his plate than most before him, at least in recent memory.

That is absolutely true. I think he came into a worse situation that some, and when I read Glenda's intro, the first thing that came to mind was the polls right after he was sworn in and when these polls first began, and I thought the the one thing most people agreed on was that he inherited a major mess. Obviously, I was wrong and that's okay. I have no problem with how you feel about him now.Although I still support him, I have issues with him as well, I think most people do.

I do however feel some sort of of way...not sure if I'm offended or hurt...but i definitely feel some way about you making it sound like I would actually think YOU, especially you, was less of a person for any reason, let alone political views. I dont think knowing that conversations about certain topics with certain people are pointless means that they are less of a person. There is one person most of us know, who I am pretty sure if someone took one of their old comments and posted it against them verbatim, they would argue against it for argument sake. Debating with that person is not worth it, but I dont think that they are less of a person. I, in no way, think that knowing when not to get into a heated discussion with someone means I think less of them and I most definitely don't think less of you or any of my friends that don't agree with me on things, political or otherwise. I actually like it that way.

Well...from the "other side of the aisle"....my problem with Obama is the fact that he's been an academic all his life...and not really "run" anything.  When I was in college, there was a govenrment "scandal" where the government was spending $700 for hammers and $300 for toilet seats...I laughed because those guys couldn't spend their money wisely....then...when I opened my practice and learned about "Quarterly taxes"...I realized the government was spending MY MONEY...coming up with $7-10,000 on April 15, June 15, September 15 and January 15 is NOT EASY.  My point is that I had no business experience when I opened my practice...and it's tough to learn on the fly...I think that Obama WANTS to help...but I think he could have been better if he was a governor, or an Army general....see...academic theories don't always translate into real life....in THEORY, Communism is a GREAT system...but it will NEVER work because of the fact that PEOPLE are involved...in communism...if you need a pair of shoes, THEORETICALLY you get a pair of shoes....but if I'm in charge of shoes...and you're in charge of hamburger, I might make a deal for the extra pair of shoes for a few extra burgers....

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat "


One of the greatest quotes in the history of our country imo. Nowhere in there does it mention about a situation or pushing blame on someone else, past, present or future. Again, I point out, a TRUE leader never pushes blame on anyone, his predecessors, his regime or his supporters. I don't know that Obama is blaming anyone, but if he is shame on him. And shame on them who allow it. Responsibility for one self and actions, is what this country stands for. Despite what the media tells us. Matters not how others led, ie. Bush, Clinton, Bush Jr, Nixon etc.... The greatest, most successful, men and women throughout the history of time on this earth all share one thing in common, and what that is? taking responsibility. 

Enough of this silly talk which contains word such as "slack" "unfair" "mess" "disaster" its all negative language that does nothing but keep man from moving forward. Change your outlook, change your perspective. Create a positive environment despite. This is what separates greatness from mediocrity, as stated, in any walk of life. Step up, another words. Enough of the babble, Action is needed. In 100 years Obama will either be remember as our first black president or a great president. And lets hope he is remembered as a great president

 Kobe, its not a question of denying or acknowledging any mess he came into, its about focus. any successful person would tell you if you focus too much on where the problem came from, you're taking away from actually solving the problem.

Which is why it is important that HE is not focused on where it came from and that he is trying to solve as many problems as he can. He is not passing blame or complaining to my knowledge. He is trying to help our nation.

I am on the other hand reminding those certain individualsthat are looking for instant results on every national problem, that fixing the things that need to be fixed will take a while based on the magnitude of situation. That is all. It was a mess, he accepted the challenge, and I hope he some how succeeds, though like I stated earlier, I am having some issues with him as well.

 There is a lot that has not been accomplished because of what he has had to deal with.  The man has walked into this job with this country at it's worst. And instead of a party saying ok enough is enough lets fix this country, it has been one fight after another. Give the man a chance to do the job that he thinks he can do, then judge him. But quit with the b.s.

 what bs? I personally am giving him a chance. nowhere did I state I wasn't. Those who are pushing the man down already were against him, those people don't matter however. We just disagree here Glenda. You keep coming in to he came into when the "country was at its worst" that means absolutely nothing. That comes in with a nothing to lose attitude. You need a winning attitude. not and oh well the country was shitt when  I got here. btw, its bloody rubbish that I have to shitt. and also I am fairly certain he is not "thinking" he can do the job, as our president he better be in there "knowing" he can do the job.

And Kobe, reminding people of what he came into does NOTHING. Don't you see that those who are truly against him are still going to be against him.And he won't be measured as a president based on what the small percentage of people who are too far one way or the other anyway. and this goes on all sides of the equation, black, white, rep. democrat, man, woman, gay straight, bi.
