Well, congratulation to the U.S. We re-elected the worse president ever in the history of the U.S. Jimmy Carter was happy when he could no longer be called the worse president ever. Now he is said because even Obama could get re-elected even being the worse president ever. Well, we will get what we deserve. Obama has a lame duck congress, so it appears he will continue directing everything by executive order. Question, if he is able to govern by executive order, what is the difference between that and a dictator?

I wouldn't say he's the worst President in American history. I will say he's the most unqualified that I know of. Per the REAL problems of today, not this make-believe divisiveness people create and perpetuate just to avoid real issues, Obama is wholly unqualified to do anything like: bringing the debt down, improving our standing economically, decreasing the deficit, getting people to work, and, hell, even getting a budget passed. Etc... But if you're of the mind--and a lot of Americans seem to be--that what we need in America is still hope, undefined change, higher taxes on the wealthy, more government, more regulations, more entitlements, less transparency in government, and a president willing and able to go around law to do what he and his supporters think is right, then they have exactly who they want. I just have to keep doing what I do and hope me and mine do okay in this one life. As for what the future holds, someone up top said it better than I could have, when stating that Obama's fanboys are going to go down just like the rest of us will. Maybe he'll stop spending so much and stop the bleeding. Maybe. I doubt it, but maybe. Here's hoping! I'd rather be positive than angry and fearful.

Romney's not qualified either. Just because you ran a business and shipped our jobs overseas doesn't mean you can be the leader of the free world. That's not a business man, that's the making of a tyrant. A heartless, greedy tyrant.

I've decided to look at the bright side. The ones who voted for him will go do with the rest of us and the look of shock on their faces will be priceless. They love their free stuff and hate America. Wait until they find out it isn't free because they gave up their freedom.

But why did you vote for him? Maybe saying they hate America was a bit harsh-let's just say they want their stuff more than they want America to thrive. It still remains that you B.O. voters will go down with the rest of us.

If someone loved America why would they change its history in the history books, deny its roots and foundation, and spread all over the world via liberal press how oppressive and evil America is?

well, i am in Canada and i kept hearing the same thing but on both sides of the fence. some announcers said that Obama was the lesser of two evils and others said that Romney was the lesser of two evils. i guess it remains to be seen what will happen in the next four years.

Cher, Obama = big government big spending, Romney = reducing government and cutting governmenet spending. What do you think? Don't listen to the media, Romney wanted to cut spending and borrowing from China. Obama said he would cut spending but yet he never has a budget and spend 6 trillion in debt. I know I can't run my household and business in debt. What do you think after this discussion?
• United States

The problem here is that a lot of people on this particular discussion would rather have the other guy fix all of the country's problems. Let's face it, like I mentioned earlier, Obama was not the one that caused this debt. Romney wants to cut spending and borrow from China? This is the same guy that sent our jobs to China. He and his pals made millions...MILLIONS by laying off hard workers. This is the same guy that would love to see Detroit go bankrupt. Whatever beef you and others that share your opinion about the re-elect president should cease. He's America's president. No, he's not perfect and no, I personally don't agree with everything he says. But, we should stand by him and pull each other out of this hole W. got us all into.

The only good thing is that the GOP kept the House. It's not much but if you want to pass every bill that makes your dumocratic heart flutter, well, that's not going to work anymore. I voted for Romney because we need a leader, we haven't had one since George W. Bush so it looks like the American people are going to have to step up. Those of us who still think this country is the best in the world will now have to prove why. I'm rolling up my sleeves and teaching the next generation that you cannot depend on one man or any government to make your life better. You have do to it, and I will. I will teach the next generation through my good example and nothing will stop me.

Wow. I guess the millions of us that are unemployed are sitting around collecting welfare checks and receiving free phones are what's really dragging this country down, huh? Like we love being out of work for months, if not years at a time. Most of us are not slackers. America, last time I checked, is a country full of prosperity and opportunity for EVERYONE!!!! The average person wants to work for a better future and strive for whatever they want, not to have anything handed down to you on a silver platter LIKE ROMNEY HAS HIS WHOLE LIFE. You want to stand up for that? Do you really think he would have your back if he were in office?

Ya just don't get it.. politics is simple - liberty=abundance, innovation (and yes for green energy) and government interference to government run=poverty, shortage and worse, search history, search the world today. The answer is not more government and more government interference. Let free enterprise work. Piling (use-less) regulations upon free enterprise, stifles it, thus stifles jobs. And no, no matter what dems and dem media says, that does not mean republicans/conservatives are for NO regulations at all!! Government adds at best red tape and bureaucracy, it does not in any way produce abundance. That is ALL repubs are (TRYING) to say, but cannot get a word in edgewise, over liberal run education and 'news' media.

You're worried about how Romney made his money Bluebell18, don't you think its pretty frickin stupid that those who make money are evil and those who want it are entitled to it? I'm sorry you've been out of work, I've been there too. Lost my house because of it but I did the only thing I could do, I tried each day to find something, I lived differently and thanked God for what I had and didn't whine about what somebody else had. I don't know you but I am going to step outside of my comfort zone and try to help you. That's what this country is all about, we need to help each other. Friend me and we will chat, I'm not kidding. If I can help you I will, I'm not promising anything but wouldn't it be great if this whole thing turned around because of us. I'm serious, friend me, we will chat. Who knows, we probably have something in common.

Ya, congrats America! Are you angry or what? I didn't vote because there was no one to vote for. I refuse to vote until there is someone available that seems to have a brain. Neither of these men do so I didn't vote and haven't since Clinton. Dictator or executive order? I havent a clue what the difference would be.

Actually I was very surprised at how totally p'od I was, and actually still am. But I think it is the long term takeover of education and the 'news' media by the left.. the last twelve years of media "Bush did it" and most of all that all so obvious sneering liberal condescension against all things conservative and for a large part, christian, that spirit of "conservatives are at best ignorant and at worst evil". And so many folks swallowing it hook, line and sinker. But now that so very many are at the end of that hook, what now? Yes, I am extremely fed up. And I am very easy going and peace loving, I have to wonder about all those who perhaps are not so much so. I do know many folks are very angry for the very same reasons I expressed, but especially for the trampling of the constitution, trading it in for charismatic leaders, and therefor too the Bill of Rights for posters soon to be upon our buildings and streets. I thoroughly think that education and mainstream 'news' media under sole influence of one party has of course undermined the nation greatly. And look at how so many believe what dems say about what repubs think, say and do. Surely a bit o dumbing down when it comes to logic and perception. All present company excluded of course.

As I watched the results come in Romney was keeping up very well. Then with the last six or seven states Obama took quite the lead. I think that for a president that is really doing the country some good two terms is nearly enough time to get some people on his side and be able to get some things done. But for a president that isn't it is a waste of time. ANd to find that nearly the same people are voted back into other positions also is disheartening at best. It is so aggravating to me to see people for his rederick and go for it like you said ' hook, line and sinker'. I agree with the 'dems' alot and that is one reason I am so upset with them for chosing this guy. He's not even American and his birthrite is questionable. The 'reps' are really old fashioned and stuck in their ways. Talk about dumb and dumber.

Unfortunately you are likely right. But I think I'd rather have four years of the 'news' media reporting "oh god those evil republicans who want to do away with medicare and social security, put chastity belts on women and bulldoze anyone not white into government housing"-I don't blame anyone of being terrified of government housing! But now we'll get more fawning and coverup..

There is no difference, Obama is a dictator. The genocide will come shortly. The sick thing is that he reavealed many of his communist plans during both campaigns, and he still got elected twice? Apparently people in this country just don't care. I wonder if they'll change their minds when they end up in the concentration camps.

That'll be true for a while, but eventually the money will run out, especially as less and less people have jobs. Then will come the "purges" of the non-producers, like always happens in communist dictatorships.

What a horrible thing to wake up to. The market is plummeting, as I figured it would, as people try to get out of their U.S. investments. Whether it recovers today, I don't know. There are already businesses that have laid off workers today and cancelled expansion plans, or so I've heard. I don't have the motivation to confirm it. I just know that the next four years are going to be a disaster. I hope it's not but now that he has 4 more years to complete his plan of destroying the American economy I don't think we have much to look forward to. Of course, after 2 years people have the chance to elect different people to Congress and this might make a difference. But since Obama "rules" by executive order so many times I don't know if it will matter. There will be more tent cities popping up. There are a lot of them now but the media refuses to do their job and bring things like that to the attention of the people. At least we won't have riots--at least, not right now.

The difference between being governed by executive order and that of a dictator is very simple...a dictator is one that promotes genocide and disorder among his/her own people. Being governed is putting politics,ego, & silliness away. And for the record, George W. is the Worse President in History...not Obama. Get your facts straight, dude.

For the record, FDR is the worst president in history. Obama might be a distant second, but until he starts throwing law abiding, tax paying, American citizens into concentration camps based solely on race he'll never be the worst president in my eyes. Also, what Obama did to unemployment and the national debt pales in comparison to what FDR did.
• United States
7 Nov 12
FDR was the one that put the wheels on for affordable healthcare. When Clinton was in office for eight years, the country had a surplus. W came in and used the national credit card for his own greedy tactics, started wars with countries that had no weapons, and had no idea what it took to run a country. It took eight years to cause all of this. It's quite clear that the rest of the country was sick and tired of the rich fat cats laugh all the way to the bank and the rest of us simple folk struggle. And throw American citizens into concentration camps based on race? Really? That's lower than low. Obama didn't cause this national debt. He's trying to fix it & the House won't let him do that simply because they just don't want to work with him. They won't give him credit for trying, they continue to moan and whine that he's not a good president. America obviously thought otherwise.

Now that President Obama has been re-elected, it's time to get down to business. It's time to put politics aside, time to forget Republicans and Democrates, left-wingers and right-wingers, and try for moderation and co-operation. It's time for the President, the House and the Senate to find a middle ground and do what is right for the American people. It's time to put personal and political gains and game playing away and work on the problems this great nation faces. It's time to stop the hate speech and support our President and our country...to work together to made advances in problem areas. It's time to let our representives and senators know that we want them to work together for the American people instead of back-stabbing and filling their own pockets. The only way the issues can be fixed is by EVERYONE working together toward a common goal...that goal being to keep America strong and united. We are not just individuals...we are the UNITED States of America.

Want planet are you from. Haven't you seen what has been going on... I guess not if you only listen to the main stream media. Obama wants to transform this country. Transform from what? We do not want what he wants to transform us into. The dems and liberal will continue doing stuff to our country. The only way to try to stop is for the house to say no. I am proud that the republicans are saying no. That is what we put them in there for in order to stop the liberals from "transforming" us into something we do not want to be. He has about bankrupted us. He has encouraged all of the haters of Isreal to take power in the mideast. He has lied to us straight faced many time. Obama will govern by executive orders like he has for the last 2 years. We have a dictator in charge. Chavez would be proud.

We share the same plamet my friend. And did you ever wonder why he has used exectutive orders so much? I heard it on 60 minutes. The whole time Bush was in office, there was one fillibuster to stop a bill. With Obama there have been over 200. The republicans were determined that he would be a one term president. Well, guess what? They were wrong. I'm not saying we should go along with everything he says. I'm saying we need to work together to solve the problems. That is how the United States will survive. And don't talk down to me again.

Barack Obama is praised by almost all other leaders in this world. Are you telling me they're all wrong? No man, if you don't like solidarity, a healthier world/environment but like people instead that want to enforce their idiotic rules (based on their religion) on others, people that are against equality, people that are happy when they can go to another war, then you're realy pityful.

Yeah, ask Isreal about it. And for your info, being praised by all of the other dictators, socialists and communists in the world really speaks a lot about him and only confirms the title. England and Germany leaders do not like him, and Isreal. Those are the only ones that count.

With gridlocks, less bills are passed and the spending is reduced. Every time congress passes a bill, it cost money. By the way, something like 96% of the stuff is passed on a day to day basis. It only big stuff that there is gridlock.

Angel. Here are stats for you in case you have not heard this. 6 trillion more in debt - more than any other president ever, and more than most of them combined. We are still losing more jobs than we are creating but we keep hearing we are starting to turn the tide. There has never been a budget passed under this administration. He allowed an ambassador to be killed in Benghazi. He is the most bi-partisan president ever. He has never tried to reach over to the republicans. He passed his healthcare with no say from the republicans. And with these few tidbits, you still call him a great leader. He can't lead himself out of a wet paper bag. I have not seen any leadership out of him. A true leadership takes responsibility and does not create excuses for everything that has gone wrong. He is still blaming the economy on Bush, even with the fact that he has been president for four years, and nothing has improved.

He could not be the worst president if he was re-elected. Clearly the people don't agree with you. I think people forget that not only does this man have to do his job, he is also responsible for fixing things that past presidents messed up and a list of things do do that we do not hear about. Furthermore, the president cannot really do much without the house and senate to back it up or shut it down. There is more to the process, he is only one person and not responsible for everything that happens or does not happen. I believe no matter what, they are all friends, they are all in the same circle, each one will say whatever they have to say that they think we want to hear. This whole concept is flawed and we are being controlled by every president. It's all a game and it really does not matter who is elected in my opinion.

For Obama to qualify as dictator, he would have to dissolve congress and declare himself as dictator for life. I do not know if he is the worse president. I remember when Johnson started the Great Society, and that started many people being on welfare. I do not know much about FDR except about the part about Pearl Harbor, and that he helped to stop the Great Depression, but wonder why it took so long. Obama tends to use the executive order quite a bit though. I did read somewhere in my political conservative emails, that he might run a third term. That would be illegal of course. What I am afraid of is that he would be allowed to get away with it. because of that white liberal guilt and people thinking he needs to get more accomplished.
