It would be great if our president would set an honorable example.

We are very fortunate to live in America where we have the right to select who will believe is honorable.
We are all unique in our personalities, education, social network, country of origin, genetic makeup, etc.
To each his own, as the old saying goes.

Excellent advice Mr. President and I hope you follow it.

I agree that we should follow someone who has actually done something, rather than one who just talks and talks.

Many people don't vote because of honor, but by the most benefits given.

That's a big reason for messed up economy.

President Obama's tour of three African nations this week reveals the significance of the U.S. having a leader who can relate to most of the world's population. Not a scion of privilege, Obama has had the struggles of the average person, whether he lives in South Africa, China or the U.S. This is huge difference from having elected Mitt Romney, who was totally out of his element with average Americans and would have been even more so abroad.

Well now that is very interesting. Yuo do recall of course that Mr. Mandela during his early years was fighting apartheid by violent means because that was the only method that got the government's attention. However it was a form of terrorism. The President should remember that because he seems to be so dead set against so called terrorism that he isn't differentiating between those who protest using violent methods and those who don't.

Obama grew up with expensive private schools, and went to a costly Ivy League college. That's not relating to the worlds population, or relating to the average person. What struggles are you referring to?

With some easy research, you would find Obama more than doubles the wealth of Mitt Romney.
