      We know you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. We understand what you have been through in your first year of office. Just remember that many respect you.

      Do you know what the truth is? You cannot analyze on your own. Those links you provide will do you no good.

      Regina.....Why? Because you say so? Just like Progressive Libnut

      There's the destruction of the free-market economy - the exploding spending and deficits, the unprecedented government takeover of vast segments of the economy, the heavy-handed regulation, the attack on productive citizens along with the subsidizing of irresponsible ones, the favoritism towards some at the expense of others, and a hundred other things.

      And the constant apologies for America's history and principles, the weakening of our national defense, the groveling to dictators, the closing of Guantanamo, the attempts to hand over our sovereignty to international institutions, and the lack of spine in standing up to our enemies.

      Then there's the ongoing attempt to make criminals of Bush administration officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, and of CIA agents who carried out their jobs with approval from the highest levels of the Justice Department.

      You just babble gibberish alien. I hope you're getting something out of it because no one else can understand that ignorant mish-mash you post.

      Find some friends outside, get a real job, start paying taxes, and become a productive American.

      trick you into taking off your tinfoil hat so he can scan your brain and sell it to space aliens.

      You're a demented hillbilly who hates America.

      This is so good.

      If you look close enough you could almost see if President Obama had any boogies up his nose. That is meant in a good way.

      I think you've captured thsi man in every possible room, angle, thought, lighting, etc.

      You do such a great job as a White House Photographer, Pete. I so enjoy your work.

      In the final analysis, Democrats want a bill so they can say they tried Republicans blocked their efforts. Ironically, if it fails or passes as a meager bill, it will be because Democrats tore it part, not Republicans.The effort has to do w/ control, NOT health care. The effort also has to do w/ collection of more taxes. All of the politicians suffer from an addiction known as, 'spending.' Its pathetic, in the extreme.The bureaucracy they want to create is their intention that is why SEIU is unhappy. They wanted thousands more new federal UNIONIZED employees. They wanted all that union dues, plus control over politicians who fear a union attacking them on issues. If the unions get their way, it will be they who decide America's future, since they will control the politicians their agenda will be the only actions coming out of Washington.Worse is that the bill does nothing at all to reform health care delivery. The cuts to Medicare will be serious are an indicator someone wants old people to die off so they are no longer a financial burden. All but themselves those who support them that is.If we are lucky, the whole thing will flop!

      Nobody gives a shit about a few dumb hicks like you hooting n hollering in town halls, Alien. Last I checked, in AMERICA, we decide things with ELECTIONS. And your side keeps getting its ass torn out on that front. Sorry. If you don't like it, move out of America.
