Why does Sinegal continue to support this failed President? Hopefully Jim will provide some lessons in leadership and economics.

Could be Stockholm - but still seems to be the Manchurian candidate with all the anti-colonial terrorist marxist communist close associations during the formative years. I enjoy saving money, but this is bogus. I will be watching them like a hawk as I don't want to lavish commerce upon those supporting the de-nutting of our country.

Will you all please STOP writing outrageous negative comments about the President of the United States!!! You should not write anything that you would not be willing to say out loud in polite company. It's perfectly OK that you don't plan to vote for him in the next election, but continually sniping at his very legitimacy is out of bounds. Not only that, but what makes you think that if Romney wins the Democrats will suddenly cooperate with his ideas? Just remember that five minutes after he is sworn in, he and the Republicans will own the entire mess our country is in.

Sarah - I am not saying anything here that I would not in person. Certainly, you are not advocating limiting political speech by using the overplayed 'civility' canard? Who here in this thread has made any claim that he is not the legit POTUS? And why would anyone expect democrats to do anything than continue to want to spend this country into oblivion? 15T later and not much to show for it other than a bulging federal workforce and expansions of the entitlements (in numbers and scope). Romney is no treat, to a libertarian minded individual such as myself, I feel he is really the lesser of two evils. However, I am hoping that with his actual real-world managerial experience he might have the ability to set things on a better course. I also hope that he doesn't spend his term blaming things on Obama as Obama has done with his refusal to take any accountability for this failings, preferring to deflect to Bush or some other weak excuse. Obama's resume would not qualify him to be AGC for any large corporation, let alone COO or CEO. He had his shot and failed in grand fashion on nearly every policy (fiscal, energy, foreign relations, border/immigration, military, entitlements, etc). I could provide multiple examples in each category. 15T in on the books debt and another 110T+ in shadow entitlement debt*, this country must make some serious structural changes and it doesn't involve more people employed by DC. *http://www.usdebtclock.org/
