So what does UG think of Obama? Living in an annoyingly republican area, I get the impression that he is not doing a great job, and should be put to death via rusty nail. While this is probably not true, I wanted to know what you guys thought.

Poll Coming.

He is a deceiver of the working class, and nearly identical to President Bush. Republicans and Democrats are too damn dense and naive to notice that. Keynesian economics, similar foreign policy, etc.

Also, he is only the leader of the Executive Branch, and there are two other branches with equal power, so I don't think it's fair to judge just him like everyone does.

Oh, one more thng: Obamacare. Not socialist. Not even close. Corporatist if anything. Mussolini would be happy for us, I guess

I have to agree, you can't blame a single man of the ****-ups of an entire Government

That's really what brought him down. He seemed like some golden god in the beginning. And there has been a lot of opposition for opposition's sake on both sides. My sister is actually voting Republican in the 2012 election even though she's liberal. She has a feeling Obama will be the Democrat choice so she'd rather contribute to the Republican candidate.

^Uhh wut?

He caves to the republicans and the conservatives to much. He's trying to be Ronald Reagan. He needs to be FDR.

That said people should still vote Democrat because Conservatives are Fascists. They are trying to replace democracy with a evangelical fascist theocracy.

Dont believe me look at the policies they are pursuing and look at the textbook definition for fascism.

Remember people the way how the political system works, people dont vote for the president the electoral college does. When you hate obama and vote republican you get rid of good senators and replace them with neo fascists.

Also start paying attention to the voting records of politicians. Because they are democrat doesnt mean they are liberals, alot of democrats are right winged conservatives wearing blue. Those fcks do more harm than good

God, Bachmann sounds like a ****. My sister is really wanting to vote for the gay guy who's running. She knows he won't make it but she wants to increase his vote count pretty much. I don't follow politics as much as I should. Both sides disgust me.

I'm honestly too uneducated to have a valid opinion on this. I agree and disagree with a lot of thins he has done. Some things, such as socialised healthcare, are things I support but I don't agree with the way he wanted to run it.

FDR, while his accomplishments to the welfare state were great, would be hell to have 'reincarnated'. Worker's finally realized capitalism blew, and FDR came and made just enough tweeks to keep them sedated.

Definitly not hte best president we have ever had. but i think all the claims of him being some radical islamic terrorist socialist or whatever are silly. politicts bother me cause its obvious neither side really cares about us.

i still cant get over that the choices for the last presidential election was obama and mccain. out of all the millions of people in the united states is that really the best we can do? im not an obama fan but i think he is doing a better job than mccain would have done, kinda like how i felt with bush. not my favorite president but i would have him over gore or kerry in the 2 elections he won.

Since you were open about being uneducated, I just want you to know this isn't an aggressive post if it seems like it...

He did not implement Socialized healthcare. He basically forced employers to buy healthcare from private companies. This is called Corporatism. Mussolini insisted that 'corporatism' is a more accurate term than 'fascism' for the ideology.

The tea party is divinding up the Republican party, and there is a ex-liberal marxist who is gaining a lot of support from further left Democrats. In 20 years, there might actually be an election that matters.

I didn't agree with McCain at all but I don't think I would have been horribly upset if he had won. Except that he had Palin.

And it's not a game of skill, it's a game of money. Whoever has the biggest budget campaigns more and spreads more ridiculous claims. I'll probably vote for Ralph Nadar.

EDIT: I don't know a lot about Socialism but it pisses me off when people throw it around constantly and only use it in negative contexts. I'm sorry but just because Murica does something doesn't mean every other system will fail.

Yeah, I know "socialized" wasn't the right word. I'm not a complete idiot; I know what (or at least I think I know) what socialism is, and I understand what he was trying to do.

In other words, you could say he was trying to nationalize healtcare? MAybe I'm just using the wrong words again. Thanks for explaining that anyway, I really need to pay more attention to politics.

Edit: Yes, I'm wrong agin, "nationalize" is even more incorrect. I will just stop.

Sort of monopolizing healthcare. Or further 'privatizing' healthcare. I'm not totally sure what the right word would be, either

See, that was the thing about 2008. Obama was by no means who I wanted to win. But McCain was a 72-year old man with run-ins with cancer and who would be taking office in the middle of an unpopular war he wanted to keep at, an ailing economy, and in a time where Republicans were very unpopular. All that stress combined with the lack of sleep and such, he wouldn't have lasted a year. And Palin did and still does scare me.

I feel sad for the country. I'm pretty sure Obama wont be re- elected and a republican will win. Which will be disastrous.

For once I wish this country would elect a liberal with balls like Alan Grayson, Anthony Weiner, ralph nader, Kuccinich, or dude from Vermont Bernie Sanders.

Unfortunately the only way you can get elected in this country is if you're a batshit conservative or a weak center right democrat.

I dont see this country turning around until the people get smart enough to elect FDR 2.

I mean for the love of god Bachman is actually being considered as a presidential candidate and people actually considered sarah palin as presidential material. This country has lost its freaking mind

Palin would be a complete and utter nightmare. I'm going to vote for her next election because fuck it that's why.

Ron Paul is batshit too but he says good things every now and then.

The fact that he keeps promoting the republican policy of deregulation really disturbs me. The "free market" (really the for profit market) cannot solve every problem.

The reason most people support him is because hes anti iraq war. But they are ignoring the the other things he says. For example yes he wants to cut defence spending but he wants to privatise war. His stance on healthcare is insane, so is his stance on education.

If ron Paul had his way it would be a disaster.
