I was aiming it at a different person, who said the same thing you're saying! See, you can't be too smart! You can't question the Government(whose side are you on?), Religion(are you against God?), physical abuse, and so on! You may ask; What's a good name for my pet turtle?!!! Or you may ask the answers to riddles... You have to be nice and go with the flow or you get kicked out of this site: banned!

Earlier a couple of questions that I tried answering got deleted and one asked; why where was my question deleted, it wasn't that bad? I tried to answer him and my answer would not be posted!

This question hardly makes sense to me. I don't particularly care for our president. And being a Republican or Democrat has nothing to do with it. I am neither, and most people don't fit ALL of the criteria for one or the other. It's good to look at both sides that the parties take and come to your own decision on how you personally feel with each separate issue.

For instance, I agree with Homosexual marriage, so I'm glad that Obama supports that. But I'm not okay with National Heathcare, and I don't like the Obamacare the he has put in place. Everyone agrees and disagrees with certain issues. Not everyone is going to agree word for word on what one president says unless they are not thinking for them self.

Nothing. He started an unnecessary 2nd war instead of finishing the first job. Neither war was funded, tax breaks were given, so we ended up in the hole. Medicare drug benefit also not funded. Embarrassed us world wide. Gave us the patriot act. Just a short list
I will say that if he had finished the job in Afghanistan, he would have a great legacy.

I can agree on everything you said but I just wanted to point this out; Obama destabilized Libya and was about to do the same to Syria.
Report as
And, trying to stabilize those Islam countries is a fools errand.
Report as
Middle East was as stable as possible when they're was a strong Iraq opposing Iran, which is not very stable. That's what happens with religiously run countries.

Bush was power hungry. That doesn't make a good president.
