    Politics destroys human relations.
    Let it go folks.

    @DN News Subscriber...Since you apparently have no response to my retort regarding "the low information voters", I'll attempt once again. When you refer to the "low information voter/crowd" my assumption is that you are referring to the many of us that possess Ivy League Degrees, own businesses, pay taxes (probably a lot more then yourself) and most important think for ourselves! Is that the voter/crowd you continue referring too in many of your deeply intellectual and highly eloquent posts?

    @WER..."Quite (Believe you meant Quit) surrounding himself with liberals who want to give everybody's (not a proper word) else's hard earned income to those who want to live on the dole". Seems to me one should be more concerned about forming a proper sentence and apply actual words when posting regardless of how delusional and nonsensical the post comes across. Well my friend let me give yourself and the regular sheep another dose of reality. Mind explaining how I am personally "living on the dole" as you so eloquently stated? Two Ivy League Degrees and I employ over 325 tax paying citizens right here in Utah. In closing anytime you desire to compare tax returns I'm all for it! Anxiously awaiting your response.

    @ Steamroller:

    There is a huge difference between hating someone and disliking their political actions and policies.
    You should be wise enough by now to realize that everyone has the right to have disagree with any administration, which is what you undoubtedly did when Bush was in office.

    If there was never any political dissension, we'd soon become a nation of sheep.

    It gets so tiring to listen to Obama apologists claim racism and/or hatred every time someone legitimately voices opposition to Obama's very questionable actions. There is no hypocrisy involved, as you are claiming.

    BTW: I sleep very well on the nights when there are no new Obama administration scandals announced. Unfortunately, that is happening more and more often lately.
    The growing number of Democrat Congressmen who are trying to distance themselves from Obama also seem to be losing more sleep lately.

    And Kerry said we are going to attack these ISIS guys with drones. Fat lot of good that will do. Let's send in the B-1's and B-52's (the aircraft, not the rock band for those of you who are low information). When I see that lineup of trucks as the photo on Drudge, I ask, "Where are the A-10's and why don't they attack them?" Oh that's right, Hagel wants to retire the A-10.

    Obama is making Carter look like a rocket scientist. And I thought Carter would have no competition for the worst president in my lifetime.

    With the situation in Iraq at critical mass, and Baghdad on the verge of falling into the hands of the Islamic militant group known as ISIS, and the impending humanitarian crises unfolding on the southern border with Mexico, folks were simply astonished that Obama is vacationing, and golfing at Palm Springs.

    "The thing you miss most about being president is anonymity." Really? The thing I miss most about being an American citizen is anonymity. What a coincidence.

    Obama disgusts me. I get the pleasure of eating breakfast every morning with one of the greatest generation geezers. He was on the USS Lexington when it was sunk. Then he was on the USS Belleau Wood when it was hit by a kamikaze. He loved golf when he was young enough to play but duty to country came first.

    It's not like he is all tired out from successfully having stopped running up our $17.5 trillion debt (let alone paid back a penny of it); or achieved beneficial foreign policy successes, or secured our borders, or even enforced our laws.

    In reality, he has done more damage to this country than any of the 43 previous presidents, and his legacy of imminent future disasters is ominous indeed.

    His "bubble" problem is that he has chosen to surround himself with his gang of Chicago politicians, and to focus on seizing and retaining power, not to benefit the country. He has deliberately isolated himself, or more accurately alienated himself from Republican in Congress, our traditional allies around the world (such as England and Israel), demonized and harassed businesses that provide jobs and pay taxes, and allowed his executive branch to violate all sorts of laws and then denied any wrongdoing.

    The blame for all this problem really lies with the mostly "low information voters" who elected him not just once, but twice.

    I pray he leaves the bubble without totally destroying our nation's future, but am fearful that will not be the case.

    If he feels so trapped maybe he should just step down now. After his first term he should have known how it felt and shouldn't have even run if it were that bad. If he's feeling trapped he can't possibly be focused enough to do a decent job... even if he were capable of it to begin with (which I personally don't think he is).

    When is this guy not on vacation? All our current president does is golf and make people more dependent on the government for their well being.

    I will be happy when he leaves the White House for good hopefully before he completely destroys this beautiful nation that so many fine young people for saved with their blood. We shouldn't engage in wars without the thought that civilian collateral damage is a given. Leave the nation building to the inhabitants of that nation. The last war we really won was World War II. Don't think my family hasn't contributed blood to all the wars of the Twentieth century so I do know what its all about. Our ancestors built this beautiful nation with their blood and Obama and his cronies are dedicated to destroying America.

    When Obama is in the White House, no ones property or liberties are safe! Better he be vacationing!

    If Obama wants to be anonymous in public, he should hire himself a good make-up artist, who follows him around with a kit full of false noses, wigs, and facial hair . . . And something to pin his ears back . . . Those are dead giveaway.

    So Obama wants
    To get out of the White House.
    A coincidence.

    Vacations, fund raising dinners, golfing.

    We were led to believe Obama was weighing what to do in Iraq. Not trying to get out of a White House cage.

    Are there plans to help the kidnapped girls in Nigeria?

    What about balancing the budget, creating jobs, cutting the deficit?

    We would like him to break out of the bubble, too. Maybe, just maybe, he will get a realistic view of what his policies and lack of a moral compass has done to this nation. This means, he has to get of the DC environment for 30 days and quite surrounding himself with liberals who want to give everybody's else's hard earned income to those who want to live on the dole.
