Why don't more people love Obama, since he is totally different than the past couple presidents and never lies also how can people think he

wasn't born in America just because he hid his passport

Ummmm...ALL political figures lie and are corrupt in some way. Politics on both sides (Repubs AND Dems) lost their ways. Obama like all the others these days care about one thing....our money in their pockets. Our country is lost and our freedoms are disappearing daily.

Good to see someone else who is non-partisanly critical of both sides. Too many people blame one party or the other and overlook their own party's faults.

there is no party they are all one in the same.it's all smoke and mirrors bush sr, Clinton,jr and Obama all take orders from the same small group of people outside of their little party who some are in the know but most aren't

i also agree. we have too many voting people who vote straight ticket, and vote according to what the church, job, spouse, friends, etc. tell them to and do not utilize their brain in the process. we also have so many people who are so disheartened by the corruption in the government at all

That's not true, you still have the right to speak freely. Well as long as it's PC & you agree with what's being stuffed down our throats. You have the right to turn in your arms. At least we can still drink. I feel sorry for the children, the future doesn't look promising at all. The Dems. push their socialism upon us & the Reps. do nothing but figure out how to get more votes, the tea party must have booze in their cups the way they bounce around. Independents are are a joke. I've worked & served with many individuals that were part of the old Soviet Union & they're perplexed. They don't understand how we don't see what's happening & why nobody does anything. They defected to have the freedoms that we're letting disappear-sad

I don't love Obama because he tries, and to some extent succeeds, in disregarding the U.S. Constitution and the guaranteed rights of its citizens. Now he's issuing all these "executive orders". That's nothing but a thinly veiled attempt to give him the power to pass new legislation, which is a power the President does NOT have. Only Congress can write and pass new legislation, legally.

All presidents have issued executive orders, so there's nothing unusual about Obama's, sorry. If you're complaining, like some, that he violates the Constitution with his drone program, try reading Article 3 Section 3.

You stand corrected. You're welcome.
Report as
I am not speaking specifically about the drone program. I am speaking about the provision in the 2012 NDAA that gives the President the power to place people in "indefinite military detention without charge or trial" in clear violation to the Constitutional right to due process of law. And before you bring it up, yes it was part of the Patriot Act brought about by Bush. Bush began violating the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens, Obama is continuing that process, and Congress overwhelmingly goes along with it. I am not hurling accusations against the Democrats. The Republicans are just as much to blame, if not more so for ever opening that door in the first place. It was terrible when Bush initiated it, it's terrble now that Obama continues it and seeks to expand on it.

Ah. Well, that certainly makes more sense. I somewhat agree with your perspective in that regard, but the fly in that ointment is precedence in the form of the suspension of Habeas Corpus during our Civil War. It may be a stretch, but it's a stretch that has been tolerated beginning with the Civil War and continued with the camps that the Japanese Americans were herded into during World War II, I'm afraid.
Report as
This is also true. Having a precedence for breaking the law doesn't eliminate the law. Regarding the WWII Japanese concentration camps I would have liked to believe we'd have learned our lesson about how unjustly these practises can be carried out if permitted. Our own history should serve as a warning against initiating them again.

Truth is, our Constitution has been violated many times long before Dubya insisted on his Unitary Executive nonsense. The "joys" of having only two parties is that when they both prefer to break the Constitution, they provide cover for each other.
Report as
President Obama signed the NDAA at the end of 2011, stating in his signing statement that he disagreed with the necessity of its detention provisions and asserting that his "Administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens" because "doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a Nation," promising that his "Administration will interpret section 1021 in a manner that ensures that any detention it authorizes complies with the Constitution, the laws of war, and all other applicable law":

If the current administration stands by that, that's commendable. Still the door has been opened and it may be interpreted, and abused, by subsequent administrations. Our country is moving in the direction of more government involvement and less personal liberty. Truth be told I fear that this will continue no matter who sits in the big chair. Our government is becoming what our founding fathers most feared and sought to prevent.

He's a businessman and that's maybe what America needed .. But after Bush left he left every problem to Obama and people thought he would fix it in the next 4 years but a problem so big takes years and years to fix . Is Obama a good president :NO ! Is he better than Romney: YES .

Obama has accomplished something that no other president has been able to do & will possibly never be matched, he's made Jimmy Carter look good. Bill Clinton was so close, how he wormed out of his impeachment we'll never know for sure. Obama doesn't lie? He spent more than 3 million dollars to have his records sealed. He gets caught up in his own lies constantly. It's very easy to get those with their hands out to vote for you when that is your strategy. Tax the evil rich more, make them foot the bill, they already do. 52% of those that work have never paid tax on their earnings, & yet they scream the loudest. Lets ban "assault weapons" again. We already tried that, did it help? Of course not, lets turn in our weapons. Only law abiding citizens comply with the law. Do you think that criminals will be rushing up to turn in their guns? No, but I' sure they love those laws. I could go on for days but why bother, nobody wants to hear the truth, it's not nice

What does the last sentence mean?
Report as
It means that what ever goes on in politics, it will affect you in some way. Usually in bad ways like restrictive laws.
Like say the tobacco laws that were the start of many of freedom stealing laws. People just went along with it because we all know smoking is bad. They didn't bother to get into all the politics and just allowed politicians to ramrod laws one after another. Soon more were to follow. Now they are talking about the 2nd amendment rights that they are set to restrict. Without that right, the rest will fall like dominos. For every law passed is a freedom lost. Eventually it will be a freedom lost for those who "are just not in to politics" too.

Wow, you're right. I never thought about that.

True-- this is why people love Obama, they don't see any lies or falsehoods. And those who don't love him, see him as power-hungry, constitution-defying and intent on the destruction of his opposition instead of crafting legislation that can pass both houses. They see him lying on national TV about Bengazi and to the American people without apology.

Obama is quite different than the last President (Bush) but quite alike the previous (Clinton). Obama does tell less than the whole truth--all politicians do.
