    Some decent stuff there. Credit card bill of rights is worthy even though I only have one lol. Requiring insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions is also the right thing to do. He also fully funded the VA and to got more mental health pros in there. Also, allowing more controlled burns to help curb damaging wildfires was a huge win for fire protection.

    JawZ delivers.

    I guess if a president doesn't strictly pander to big business he is failing.

    Thanks for the help. Although I don't agree with the pre-existing condition stuff. Thanks for the others.

    Do you work, or are you part of the "Moocher" class?

    The problem is that the healthy people always wind up paying for everyone else.

    There are basically 3 types of people. Healthy people, healthy people who get sick, and people who live a reckless lifestyle who get sick because of their own actions. So who pays and how much? What incentive is there to stay healthy? Regardless of one's ability to pay, as long as they are part of the "pool", the burden is still shared by all.

    and really...what is the definition of pre-existing? IF you really think about it...who does it benefit?

    It would be a lot easier to talk on the phone about crap like this lol. I hate typing.

    Wow... just wow. I guess FDR was a lousy American. Who cares if he led this country in the time of one of America's greatest crisis. That's completely irrelevant because he was a Dem. Never mind any other Dem who did something great for their country.

    I think the more important question is did Far N Wide really make a statement suggesting that all Dems don't work and aren't proud of their country?

    I dont see where he implicated anyone other than ALL dems. He mentioned Dems in general and than stated that they don't do any of those other things.

    Well he's destroyed every democrats chances of being elected in November. That should count for something. He's awaken a lot of sleeping folks as to what is happening to this country while they slept.

    If the topic is simply about what he has done well than as JawZ pointed out he has a pretty good list of things he has accomplished. Obviously, we all have differing viewpoints on whether those are good or not. I've personally been disappointed with a few things regarding his presidency so far. Ultimately, my decision to support him in 2012 will be contigent upon what he does here on out and who the Republicans nominate as their Presidential candidate. It's important that they nominate a strong candidate who is a much better option then what McCain 2008 was.

    I'm disappointed Roody. By now, I thought for sure you'd of figured out that it doesn't matter who's in office. It only matters who controls that person that is in that office.

    No worries man I have figured that out. You can't get to that level without your hands getting really dirty. Essentially it comes down to the lesser of two evils.

    I just wish "We the People" could throttle those really in control.

    Campaign finance reform is something frankly we all as U.S. citizens IMO should want as a high priority. That used to be a big thing with McCain and I applauded him for it, but the focus on it has gone away.
