A Marxist? Are you kidding me? Sheeple? Really? What is it with some people? Clearly this person does not have the first idea of what a Marxist is. It definitely is not what this president is. Not even close. And sheeple? Give me a break.

I am so glad that these people are becoming irrelevant.

Mohokat,

I know the label "marxist" is a lot of fun for you guys to use, but the truth is there's ZERO reason to apply that term to President Obama. He's being a centrist, and he's dealing with real-world issues rationally.

How about you folks drop the silly name calling and instead pay attention to the real world for a change?

Blue,

I hope you're right, but I know better, and history is on my side.

People have often desired a smooth talking king, than lived to regret it. That's why over ninety percent of all people, through out history, have lived in poverty. The facts don't lie.

Mark: "What is it with some people?"

Well, they say they are not sore losers, just not "adoring sheeple," yet feel the need to get on here a post negative comments. I'd say that's the very definition of a sore loser! Especially when one has to resort to the name calling!

I am a sore loser. It's difficult watching someone transform our country, and fooling the people into thinking something wonderful is happening.

At one time, the people of Cuba, North Korea, etc chose their form of government just to end up in poverty. You don't see anything wrong with a seventeen trillion dollar deficit, or government run health care?

Worf, at least you admit it, while others won't. However, I do take offense with you claiming 51 percent of the people, including myself, have somehow been fooled. This may not be the road you want, and while I don't agree with everything this president has done and will do, it is the road those of us who voted for him want to go down. I do not see this as a transformation; rather, it is an evolvement of our country. Not so long ago we had slavery, but our country evolved and got rid of it. Not so long ago women could not vote, but our country evolved and now lets them vote. I can guarantee you there were people back then saying our county was "transforming" for the worse.

As for the debt: I do believe we need to do something about the debt, but Obama is not and has not been the only one to raise it and not do anything about it. McCain's debt would have looked very similar.

Yes, I do want government-run healthcare. Just a difference of opinion. Does make your opinion right, and vice versa.
