What kind of president?

June 23, 2014

A recent letter to the editor described President Obama as a traitor on the level of Judas Iscariot and Benedict Arnold. It is refreshing to read someone who actually questions power....

Not bridgegate. But he does have some odd ways about him. Like mafia style government. I am afraid some not very good things will come out if he runs. I am a lefty that likes the guy. Although I know some from NJ that can't stand him. We will see.

"Christie just might be able to pull it off. I think he has too much baggage however." - rick424

Baggage? What would that be? Bridgegate? You mean that "baggage" that only MSNBC seems to be interested in.

What would you call that "baggage" Clinton has then? "Household goods"?

Just wondering. Oh, and Elizabeth Warren will never appeal to the majority of the population to get elected.

Now don't curse at me Ritty, but I disagree. He is too far right and really not that well known. He will never make it IMHO. Christie just might be able to pull it off. I think he has too much baggage however.

From the Nixon articles of Impeachment:

He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.

All I have to say is that President Obama wanted to use US Military power to help ISIS in Syria and now wants to use US Military power to oppose ISIS in Iraq.

Do we need further proof of President Obama's incompetence?

I to was raised catholic and I know what you are talking about,hypocrisy at its finest.Alot of the issues that are being argued repeatedly( by both sides) are the ones of personal choice and should not be used as political agendas. Stick to the issues that affect all of us as a country and stop trying to make everyone conform to their beliefs through religion. Congrats to your sister I hope she has nothing but happiness.

In my opinion republicans need to relax their hardcore stance on social issues such as gay marriage, abortion, or they will be shut out again. I thought there was a division between church and state so religious beliefs are personal and should be kept out of politics. Stick to the real issues and not all the personal decesions. -Lauri

Lauri, believe it or not, I agree. I have many conservative beliefs but regarding gay marriage, it has no effect on me or my life, or anyone else's life for that matter so it's not my business or that of government. In fact, my sister just got married to her lifetime partner. Regarding abortion, I'm not pro-choice but I do understand that first trimester abortions are necessary in today's society. I was raised Catholic and even got a Catholic education. But since then I have distanced myself from the church because of some of their antiquated policies and all the hypocrisy I encountered.

"Personally I like Ben Carson and his views but I doubt he's gonna run." —Cap

I hope he runs, too. He sure is leaving the door open judging from the comments he makes about the support and encouragement he's getting.

Capricorn I agree to a certain extent but it was who they put up that was the problem. If republicans want to win the women vote they just can't stick up anyone even if they are a women. I have always said I felt sorry for Sarah Palin she was used and abused by the republicans to help get the womens vote and that blew up royally.In my opinion republicans need to relax their hardcore stance on social issues such as gay marriage, abortion, or they will be shut out again.

That is exactly the reason the American people did not vote for a republican candidate in the last 2 elections because they showed their true colors, they did not even need any pushing, they just opened their mouths. -Lauri

Lauri, I still think as far as the 2008 election, people hated Bush so bad that there was no way they were going to elect another Republican no matter who the candidate was. If Obama isn't careful, Democrats may have the same problem in 2016 if Republicans can put up a likeable candidate. Personally I like Ben Carson and his views but I doubt he's gonna run.

It just seems like the more she tours, the more her approval ratings are dropping. -CAPRICORN

Please Hillary, keep touring ! I cant wait to see the republican nominees push her and push her until the real Hillary comes out and her true colors show for everyone to see in all of their glory.

Clinton 2016. Bring it on. -Rick

Rick, do you think Hillary should slow down on her book tour and get out of the limelight until she announces her intentions? It just seems like the more she tours, the more her approval ratings are dropping. Also, do you think if Obama leaves office with similar approval ratings as Bush, it will hurt Hillary?

I don't think I wrote Mr. Carson. If these people you say have so much brain power why were they not your republicans nominations in 2012? Your party put up Romney and Ryan and before that McCain and Palin and we all saw what happened, the American people do not want that in the white house. So we will wait and see. Yes on this site you need to have a big mouth especially if you don't agree with the "pack" to try to speak over all the know it alls and preachers on here.

If your going to call Krauthammer and Carson bottomfeeders then you obviously dont realize that those two could outsmart Obama, Clinton, Reid, Biden, and Pelosi's brain power added together. BTW you have a BIG MOUTH TOO! Contrary to what you think not everybody agrees with you either! You dont have to get upset about it. Eric- whatever.

Leaningright I hardly whine just asking you to put up facts to support what your big mouth is saying. My fear of a republican president is not due to anything but your list of potential candidates Charles Kauthammer,Paul Ryan, and Mitt Romney really?? Now who is picking from the bottom feeders club? One thing we can agree on is I can't wait until November, I guess we will find out what the public wants.

So you support the US staying in these countries indefinetly? Your idea is to bomb everywhere? Killing innocent people in the mix? Look how long Bin Laden evaded the US, so your answer is bombs and drones? Why was that not done in the beginning of this war? If that had happened we would'nt still be there fighting for peace for people who do not want it.

Actually Bobbie mitt was liberal like until it tried to cater to the conservative base. Had he no done that and making stupid class warfare comments he might have made it. Although it didn't help he was the last pick of a long line of losers.

Rick, out of touch with society? you have got to be kidding right? "broke" who is out of touch ? She is her own worst enemy! keep drinking the Liberal tea Rick. Your fear of the Republicans winning the white house is what drives you to want Hillary, nothing else im sure.You will get a taste of what people want in November. You and your Liberal friends should aim higher! Hillary is nothing but a bag of wind.

Rickie "Actually conservatives lost the election because they are out of touch with society."

Although Mitt was more a liberal lite, the real reason Rickie and his parasite ilk never vote for Republicans? Don't promise enough free stuff.

Actually conservatives lost the election because they are out of touch with society. They are stuck in some back woods world where they only exsist in their own little bubble. That plus they just could not agree on a candidate worthy of the people. Passing over Huntsman for a pizza guy. Ending up with a guy who just could not relate even in his party. Clinton 2016. Bring it on.
