Let's see...

Our enemies--the communists, as well as socialists, all like Obama. Israel (our chief ally) and pro-business leaders like Romney.

Makes it kind of hard to figure out who to vote for, doesn't it?

"The president says what he will do and he sticks to it," Cameron said during a toast to Obama.

I guess Cameron didn't hear Obama's campaign speeches when he promised that there would be no secrecy. Cameron must not have heard the promise made a few seconds later that he would give the public five days to read a bill that comes to his desk before he signed it, so that they could tell him what they think. If Cameron did hear that, he must be ignorant about what happened during the health care bill in early 2010, where Obama blatantly breaks those promises. Cameron must have missed Obama's remarks about the health care bill not being a tax.

There is one thing that Obama has kept his promise on: that he will fundamentally change America. What does that mean, to fundamentally change something? It means change to the basic foundation; in our case, the U.S. Constitution. All that has made America great is changing. And not for the better.

If you are proud to be an American, do NOT vote for Obama this coming November.

Not sure the President was looking for an endorsement from Hugo Chavez...Any word on who Ahmedinajad is endorsing?

The UK is impressed with Romney.

With friends like those.....who needs enemies?

If my actions earned me the endorsement of Chavez and the others, I would be looking at my actions to see what I was doing wrong.

The funny thing is Cameron and Sarkozy are part of their respective nations' more conservative parties.


If I were Obama, I would not want many of these endorsements. Chavez? That alone would be enough to make me run the other way.

The Question should be: Where is the President? Why isn't he working on JOBS! Why are Americans starving while Obama is President? Mr President Obama who cares who endorses you! Starving woman and children are NOT endorsing you! Your ignoring the weak and hungry to go feed your ego in London during a NATIONAL CRISIS you are making worse! Obama has failed!

Most world leaders recognize that if Romney were elected, he would get the U.S. involved in yet another unnecessary war. I think the world in general is tired of U.S. led unnecessary wars.

I'm kind of thinking Israel would side up republican because they believe they're more likely to get support from a party owned by big religion when they do something stupid vis a vis Iran.

Obama has the support of a weak English 'Conservative', the niece of the ruthless Cuban dictator, the socialist Venezuelan leader and friend of Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, and the totalitarian government of Russia. Not sure what Cameron's deal is, but I know exactly why the others like Obama.

These 'endorsements' should tell every American all they need to know about Barack Obama. I don't want the Russians, the Cubans, or the Venezuelans to like or support America. We DON'T share their values. This is further proof that the American left no longer cares as much about human rights and liberty as the American right does. The American left is more comfortable with the philosophy of a huge, intrusive government than they are about individual liberty. No wonder Obama is getting these kind of endorsements.

I am very proud to be an American. That is why I will not, under any circumstances, vote for Mitt. I value my country far too much to give him a chance to wreck it and its people.

I'm pretty sure I will be voting for my border collie. Even SHE is better qualified to be president than Mitt is.



Uhhh, where have you been?

Obama has proposed legislation for jobs. Have you noticed that Congress isn't getting anything done?

So, why should he twiddle his thumbs waiting for Congress to do their job?

I'm sure that is exactly what Republicans want him to do--stay in Washington while they do nothing except campaign against him.


furry1993 what's her name, and is she on the ballot? likewise, with the endorsement of Hugo Chavez, what does Obama have to worry about ;)

Laie, HI

So who has the best solution to the country's problems? I don't think that making the rich richer is the solution to every problem we have. I am not even sure it the solution to ANY problem we have.

Thanks, I always want to know the ones who don't care about America falling into being the world’s biggest joke with 4 more years of Obama. Outstanding!

Look forward to another 1.5% growth (or less)
Gas $5.00 (+) a gallon and climbing from there.
More people out of work
Insurance program that will cripple small businesses.

Ya he's qualified to be President. People I don't care if you’re a Demo or Rep or Ind. If a guy has shown he can't run the greatest country in the world get rid of him. STOP standing up for him, it shows you’re about as out of touch with what works and what doesn't work as he is.
He still believes his economy plan is working? LOL!

Ya, Thanks for voting for him again.

Nice strawmen!

So an "edit" of your strawmen yields...

This is further proof that American Cons no longer care as much about human rights and liberty.

American Cons are more comfortable with the philosophy of a huge, intrusive corporate government than they are about individual liberty.

These endorsements should tell every American everything they need to know about Romney.

No wonder Romney is getting these kind of endorsements.

See, it's easy to create strawmen in order to demonize the "enemy" (other Americans).

We are not a socialist state, yet, but are supposed to be a free enterprise. Over the past 40 years, government has intruded more into business and worker's lives. Businesses goal is to make money for their services or products. In the process, workers have jobs and have jobs and benefits for their work. Most world leaders do not believe in free enterprise as their countries have become more socialist, dogmatic and threatening their nation's security, peace and welfare. We are still a light to the world and people would like to come enjoy the benefits we enjoy. Instead, our leaders are becoming more like leaders in other countries or nations. We are becoming like Israel of old who wanted to have a king or a single ruler like other nations around them had at the time. We don't need one individual attempting to make all our decisions as if he is the all knowing and knows what each one of us want. We have a system of elected officials who are to make their own decisions of what we as constituents want. However, with this President he is forcing Senators and Congress to do his will.

To: Truthseeker:

Hmmm, You forgot about the 36 economic, small business supporting, regulation reducing bills passed in the House waiting for the President or the Democrat Senate to act! The United States Senate has not passed a budget in 3 1/2 years Truthseeker. That is a fact. The president has not encouraged Harry Reid to move anything forward. The president's last two budget proposals received not one single vote in the House or Senate the past two years! Obama is not serious about passing a budget or deficit reduction! The House defeated his budget 414-0 not one Democrat voted for his creation. In the Senate he lost 99-0. Obama's words in no way match his actions. He talks a tall game but has constantly come up short.

There is no way you can defend this President with one supportive fact! Obama has failed.

25 million unemployed
47 million on food stamps
16 trillion in debt
1.4 trillion deficit this year
1.5 percent economic growth! Anemic and pathetic!
Retail sales down
Manufacturing production down

His own Economic Advisors say his policies have failed! Vice-President Biden says were in Recession(june 27 ABC News)


Pleeze...Obama IS the President. If you had a chance to go to dinner with the President of the United States of America or a hopeful candidate, which would you choose?

Hardly an endorsement.
