Pres. Obama:  Uh... come here for a hug.   You, uh... would make me look good in a photo opp.
 
I'm in Dubai, God bless the americans
 
Thank you everybody, from all around the world, for your kind comments and support. We here in America a deeply grateful that you care!
 
Our nation needs more glossy photos of Obama...right?
 
At least he didn't have his staff buy $5000 worth of stuff from Wal-Mart to make it look like it was a genuine relief "effort"

 
Thank you Mr. President for being the President right now and not a presidential candidate.  You have my vote!
 
Yes! You guy's from around the world have been awesome!
 
See this, Mr. Trump? You can't act this. That is the difference between men like you, and men like the President.

A president who really feels with "feeling heart".
 
I'll admit, Obama is a great actor. Too bad he proved his inhumanity by supporting the PATRIOT act, going back on his word to leave medical marijuana facilities alone, and enacting an executive order to assassinate American citizens.

+Gary Johnson is our only hope.
 
I wonder how much feelings went through his feeling heart as he sat and did nothing while three Americans were slaughter while begging for help that never came. Mr. President you can put this affair off until after the election but your hands are dripping American blood.
 
^^^THE EYES LOOK LIKE ITS GW BUSH UNDER THERE^^^
 
+Brian M. Ross, Democrats just can't catch a break, can they?  The primary job of the President is to be the Chief Executive.  What does that mean?  That means his office is there to execute the laws that the Congress enacts.  In other words, the President, among his other duties, is the nation's chief of police.
While he may support relaxing the marijuana laws - and I believe that in his heart he does - his job requires him to enforce the laws.  If he backed off on this duty, the Republicans would have his head on a platter.
Same thing with the Patriot Act - which, by the way has many provisions we need to maintain our national security, as well as some of the more dangerous powers it grants.
It is very much the Nixon in China syndrome - a Democrat cannot afford to be seen as weak on law enforcement, just as a Democrat cannot have opened the door to China without being accused of bowing to Communism.
Gary Johnson is a Libertarian.  Libertarianism is not a good plan for governing the nation.  It can only work on a local or personal level.  On a national level it would simply be chaos.
 
+Guillermo Sanjurjo i wonder how much you thought about that comment before you typed it? i don't know where you're from but a lot of people are hurting here. if you are going to be post something, why not stay positive and not use our tragedy to contrast some bigger political point you want to make. real tired of seeing stuff like this online.

Can the unemployed come help clean up. Maybe you guys can help us with college? Good trade off?
 
Just like GW Bush during Katrina. Right. !!!!!
 
"do what you can, where you are, with what you have"
 
"Quick, someone get me some babies to kiss.. no babies? Give me that old woman to hug. Are you getting this camera guy?"
 
To those who accuse this president of setting up a photo op, I would simply ask you to point to the president or political candidate who has never done this.
Why is it that Obama, and only Obama, must be without stain or blemish, and that if one should be spotted, it is immediately proof of his ineligibility for office?
Why is the same scrutiny not applied to his opponents?  Why was Romney photographed on the day after the hurricane hit, collecting food for distribution to the needy?
Was that a photo op?  Or does only Obama do those?

Why cant the unemployed be given work and college? Cleaning up?
 
"quick someone" get that man a diaper... and perhaps some common sense as well.
 
Get off Bush people.  bummber had 4 yrs and did nothing.. Sandy was terrible..i agree..but the bummer just wants votes..can't you all see that. God bless America..
 
+Angélica Garcia-Boiteux, +Sofie Løve Forsberg I completely agree with both of your points regarding caring and compassion.

Perhaps +Rod Wagner was making a broader point?  The Republican party has somehow claimed Jesus as their own.  I'm not a religious man, however I find it very odd that a long haired, sandal wearing, wine drinking man who fed the poor, healed the sick, advocated peace and turned over the money changers table has somehow become the poster child for the, pro 1%, Republican party.
 
+Sally Harrell - name me anyone in public office who doesn't need votes.  Isn't that kind of a silly remark?
 
God Bless America...my heart goes out to those families, why is mother nature so cruel.
 
Да,приносим соболезнования людям погибшим!!!!!
Translate
 
What I mean, +Rod Wagner , is that you can find compassion among all religions. As compassion/love is the core of all religions. Faith isn't a coat you put on when it's convinient - you live it/act on it...otherwise it's just emptiness.
Love&Peace&Harmony to All - faith or no faith
♥
 
+Angélica Garcia-Boiteux great question.  I would guess it's difficult for folks to separate what should be understood as base functions of our humanity from religious teachings?
 
Yep, same guy that watched Americans die in Bengazi in real time and forbid our our troops and commanders to help

Let the unemployed work, earn some cash and a gi bill.
Not the gi bill but something like it. The chance bill...lol
 
Obama visit New Jersey yesterday what did he do. People stole don't got power. They don't got drinking water . They don't got gas cook the food. The police department don't got gas for their cars. Fire trucks don't got gas to go anywhere. It's been over 24 hours what did he do four them people over New Jersey. 
 
+George Abraham - it's as if someone turned on 'Righty Radio' here on Google+.  Come on +George Abraham, what you're alleging just isn't true.  If you have evidence to the contrary please state such now.

Can't wait till The White House posts change in January!!!!!!
 
+Charles Craig though I don't agree with your cynicism, I would gladly take the liberal approach to disaster relief over their Republican counterparts.  Putting Michael "heckuva job Brownie", whose previous job was the Judges and Stewards Commissioner for the International Arabian Horse Association, shows the Republican parties disregard for the wellbeing of their fellow man.
 
1 more Hour and the Voting Booth Opens!!!!  Woo Hoo!!
Romney/Ryan  and Mia Love get my vote!!
Oh, and VALID I.D. is required to vote.
 
+Randy Hunt Make sure behave like a good little citizen and 'show your papers'...  Thankfully, in my state, we are still free to walk into a polling location to vote without having to present 'our papers' to 'officials'.

Fry crying out loud people - act like Americans.  Act as if you are free men!
 
Convenient photo opportunity in the run-up to the elections.
 
+Guillermo Sanjurjo -with as much respect as i can muster (for a traitor)...YOU!! in case you misunderstand english...stop putting our troops and people in harms way for your POLITICALLY SPUN HATREDS AND SATANIC AGENDAS! you show our enemies abroad that america is not behind our efforts overseas,and will be easy targets for those who wish to do us harm.I AM AN-EX MARINE ASSHOLE>>yes ASSHOLE!! you cry about 4 men in benghazzi(which you would not even give a rats ass about,had this not been a subject for you to spin..you fuck faced TRAITOR!!! GO back home to SYRIA,you lowlife maggot scumball.YOU place my sisters and brothers in harms way for your SHIT!! we have  fought for freedom,and something you never heard of..its called TRUTH-fuckface!! IF you are so damned concerned about lives of americans overseas(traitor!)..your lowlife P.O.S   .you would try to get the soldiers home..but that ISN'T  YOUR agenda!! is it TRAITOR? your agenda is to spin facts for your "GOD" the rich man..no matter who it gets killed..isnt that right..TRAITOR?maybe i can call in an airstrike!!what is your adress BIN GUILLERMO..??F-16's on their way to a traitors house!!
 
+Jez Hopkins Yeah, the people that need help definitely think it's convenient.  I'm sure the weather control satellites conjured Sandy up, just like they did Katrina.  And I'm sure thinking about what divides us rather than counting on all Americans to come together when we need each other, and need our President to be a competent leader is the most important thing.  Just like after we all rallied around the president 11 years ago, right?
 
This is what a President looks like. It's not cleaning up after a football game. It's not bagging groceries you bought at Wal-Mart the Red Cross doesn't want. It's not about power. It's about humanity.

Oh, and Mitt? It's also harder work than you're capable of. 
 
Obama has class,he's out there and i like that...so vote thats where it'll count
 
i hope tht he wins the election
 
+Sally Harrell -say what??? he has done nothing??? get off of bush???you should not be allowed to post on here,or vote after you get a labotomy!! omg! deep down inside,do you actually remotely believe that crap?omg!!
 
Benghazi. Another stepping stone in the plan to take over the Middle East.
 
Man, I just have to respond even though I know what I am going to get back here. While I certainly applaud the President for handing out hugs during this crisis, AND allowing pictures to be taken of him doing so, Romney's been doing the same thing. Do we really think that either candidate is genuine? I for one do not. I am still waiting for the President to make some sort of comment that informs us about the debacle at our embassy in Libya. I am still waiting for Romney to talk about the issues at Bain Capitol and other business ventures that he was involved with. While I admire people being passionate about their candidates, I admire the ability to be realistic about that candidate even more. 
 
+Chris Esterline  Maybe you should look at my profile before you say stuff like that!  We have bad people who lie, steal, and cheat where voting is concerned.
 
Obama certainly knows how to use any opportunity to impress his voters. For somebody who should be busy doing his job he has too much time to hug people in front of cameras.
 
Gee. he got his photo op and all you nutless wonders are gushing like little girls at a slumber party. Puke
 
benghazzi is not a cover=up assholes!! do you know the truth about it? we know more about it in a few weeks,than we knew about why our soldiers were dying by the thousands in IRAQ !!!  spin that fuckfaced traitors!!
 
The amazing thing about this is that nearly all decent Americans are absolutely thrilled to see these two complimenting one another and working together for a common good because we're all so damn sick of the partisan political bullshit, yet already the extremists from each side are having a fit that they're complimenting each other and within days we will be right back to the same old song and dance where the two sides do nothing to help americans and fight each other on everything.  
 
he goes after the worst of the storm. during that part, he was hunkered down in the office, watching it on the tele
 
Thank u for helping our country. Mr.p.
 
Nice, but I'll trade one "hugger-in-chief" for a real commander-in-chief
 
i will repeat..if you think the president is to blame for 4 men 1/2 a world away in benghazzi..then it is by the same condemnation BUSH and the republicans were responsible for all the devastation and wars of 911...
 
nov 6th...can't come fast enough, this guy is done.
 
I'm glad I am Canadian (although Prime Minister Harper isn't great) and don't have to deal with 'merica's presidential election. If you didn't want bush for 4 more years why the hell did you all vote for him...
 
He really has shown bright in my eye's.He's my President and all of ours too.You can'nt put a price on what a honorable man does in time's of crisis and he's shown that he care's
 
We didn't all vote for him, Andrew.  And those that did, either aligned with his philosophy / party or were terrorized into believing that we couldn't afford to change Presidents during the war on terror.
 
go ahead..spin your little twisted and immoral lies about benghazzi for political gain..over the safety and security of our people overseas..but i am keeping note of this..i am keeping a journal of those who are intensionally distorting truths and passing them on for others to see later..and if someone else gets attacked because of the turmoil these treasoness posts cause overseas..i will be ok with releasing those names for their families to sue YOU.free speach does not count in a movie theater when you scream fire,nor does it apply when you get involved in acts of treason against the USA
 
Gordon Hitt :"all of ours too."  No, Not really...
 
If it wasn't election yr. he would have done a fly-over then headed back to the white house to meet with some celebrity or play a round of golf. #fake    
 
well..it's go'a happen and i'm soooooo..happy
 
+Randy Hunt I looked at your profile.  I, like you, served my country.  Sorry for calling you out but you and I differ in how we regard the freedoms we were charged with safeguarding.

I've looked at the data, the numbers of folks who are fraudulently voting are insignificant.  In the single digits in many cases.

I don't believe free men should be required to show their ID to vote.  I don't believe free men should be required to 'show their papers'.

Where is the photo op pics with Obama in the situation room during the Benghazi attack? 
 
Am I the only one who finds it odd when people say "God bless America" after a terrible disaster?
 
only took seal team six,10 f16 fighters, 1 tank co, and 250 1st responders and he show up for owners of those awesome MILLION DOLLAR PLUS HOMES,just forgot about those 2 NAVY SEALS DUE TOO "OBAMAS FOG" OF WAR or and he told everyone too stand down he said "we will lose no jihadists on this presidents watch and I'll be go to hell son of a bitch kept his WORD FINALLY or and those pesky millionaires/billionaires can look forward too my help in coming DAYS,WEEKS,MONTHS oh!!! Shit forgot only 5 days left
 
Who's Bush? Republicans don't talk about Bush anymore. He never existed! And there's NO reason to believe any future Republican would be ANYTHING like Bush. No way, no how.

... except, that, Bush did exist, was responsible for thousands of deaths, tens of thousands injured in a war we had no place starting, and there IS a reason to think it'll happen again.
 
He there to care... Tuanks mr president..
 
heheheh..history allways tell's on you....bush
 
Isn't that the same lady Gov. Christie was hugging the other day? Is she the new Joe the Plumber?
 
+Tim Connors the numbers don't add up.  The need for voter ID laws has been completely trumped up, by the Republican party, for the sake of intimidating minorities.

"investigation reveals there were 55 cases of voter fraud referred for prosecution by the Florida Secretary of State out of 11.6 million registered voters over five years, the latest period for which data is available."

YOU ARE A REAL MAN AND YOU SHOW IT!!! SORRY FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T ACCEPT A REAL MAN!!! EVEN WHEN THEY SEE HIM IN ACTION!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR EFFORTS TO MAKE SURE AMERICANS ARE GETTING WHAT THEY NEED TO MOVE "FORWARD" DURING THIS DISASTROUS TIME!!!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
 
He is huging her because the next election (deception)
 
The things that some people say about this photo op almost make me vomit! Everyone saw this coming as surely as the storm.....Every act was planned and every word was written in advance. The average person is so gullible, and politicians count on this fact to win votes from the weak minded and the uninformed....
 
All it is trying to make him look good to the public
 
+Louise Donaldson Sorry, troll. That dog won't hunt. That dog is dead. I suppose you voted for Kerry because Bush was at a school reading a story when the towers got hit. No? Then STFU
 
its clear by now if obama had just stayed away-republicans would complain./.if he stood 50-ft away..republicans would critisize../.if he is right there they critisize..i am so tired of my country being viewed by republicans SHIT  colored glasses..
 
What a good way to steal a second term lol

 
Absolutely...and it is difficult to do your job when so many people elected or not are fighting anything and everything you do (or want to do). And when they make that decision before you are even sworn in as President it is very telling.
 
A real president thank you Obama you got my vote.
 
I find it ironic that people are harping on the loss of 4 people in Benghazi.. guys doing the job they signed up for.. when we have lost thousands of Americans in Iraq. 
 
ANYTHING TO GET THE BIG FART GOVERNER  TO CHANGE HIS VOTE!!!!!
 
Why is he being applauded for this. It's part of his job. I don't get any attention for doing a schedule or helping a customer. So I guess we just praise him for taking time from his campaign to do his actual job. Yay mediocrity.

Hey, it would be an honor to meet the President of the United States of America.  I just think we have a better choice to help our economy right now. I would like to thank the President for his work and welcome in a new president.
 
This will make everyone forget how incompetent this president is, NOT!!
 
As much as you may not agree with your prez, we as a country didn't do enough to get the government fixed, and since he is our prez either support him or GTFO of America. If you hate him then fix it.
I hate him. But he is my president. Dumbasses.
 
Republican or Democrat = a game beng played on your to subscribe to a two party system. NO TWO PARTY will ever be the "right" one for the majority. Ask yourself this, where were the other presidential candidates in the debates? (Oh shit.. huh??? There are more?)
Yeppers.
 
Very proud of this president.  This is what happens when you put a seasoned professional and not a political lackey in the FEMA Director position...anyone remember Katrina?  His appointments have largely been very good and our nation's responses to disasters have been relatively swift and effective.  Romney as President?  That's a disaster even President Obama probably couldn't fix.
 
He is such a great president
 
Not incompetent? Strong words coming from a Republican!
 
who cares about how incompetent he's been, cant people just focus on what he's doing now??? I'll tell you the truth, no man on the face of the earth will be a competent president. someone will always point the finger, no matter how good or bad he is. 

by the way, I'm in Mexico so dont think I'm taking sides.
 
I thinks it's called compassion and it's very powerful coming from the leader of a country connecting with the regular joe. Regardless of your politics, let it move you.

I silk haven't seen Obama hug the family of the 4 people who died in Libya. Why not? Because he along with the Muslim brotherhood planned it, it was to be just a kidnapping so two days b4 the election Obama would release the blind sheik in return for the ambassador and look like a hero

+Angélica Garcia-Boiteux I want to thank you for clearing the record on that. I don't like the man (Bush) frankly. But I don't hate him. All men are pawns for someone and the men that held his puppet strings were evil men. But I know he is a decent person. Just badly BADLY misguided.

wow look at you people, Obama is with people that don't like him (Gov Chris Christie) working on how to support the catastrophe in all the north eastern states, and you go chanting how much he doesn't care. 

Guess your the bunch that celebrated with Bush when Katrina hit? Don't worry, vote for Mitt and instead of getting a President that goes to the locations to help the needed, you can once again get a president that eats cake while people suffer.
 
Cheating on michelle i not rite obama lol

go to the hell US...islam will be Dominates...
 
Conservatives are trashing Christie for working with Obama to help the citizens of NJ. 

Did any progressives trash anyone for working with Bush on anything? 
 
Obama is the type of guy any average person could sit down and have a beer with.  Romney doesn't even drink beer.  I don't trust a person that doesn't have an occasional beer unless they are a recovering alcoholic.
 
Do you remember the 2 billion dollars FEMA wasted in the wake of Katrina or bimbo blanco waiting 4 days to turn the situation over to the Feds, or do you just remember hating bush so much you still blame him for everything?
 
I hope things get better 
 
+billy routh 
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.

According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.

When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.

So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.

/An atheist who understands Christian theology better than Bible-thumpers do.
 
Meet you and all of Islam extremists there. Go home and abuse your women some more, maybe that will help you focus on you instead of what you think we should be. Much love

Thts why I like OBAMA kuz he has heart... now OBAMA if u get elected PLEASE dnt fuck us over!!!!
 
What a fucking poser. Yet Romney is blasted for running a canned food drive. 
 
+Dammon Lore 

Guess Mitt Romney supporters prefer a President who stages his own "Relief Rally" by buying $5,000 worth of donation props and asking people to grab the donations from Mitt to give it back to Mitt. . . you know, to look like he cares... 
 
The media always plays up what they believe will gain the most visibility, but this particular story was about the storm; Sandy, not Benghazi or Iraq.

New Jersey is pretty much a Democratic state and the governor will most likely vote along HIS party lines. What I find interesting is that so many people are ready to blame the president, personally, for being directly responsible for EVERYTHING that is not right in the US and the world, without exploring the facts and understanding what a recession is, how it came to be and just what it takes to turn that big boat around.

It took has at least eight years to do all the things we did that resulted in the recession. Now we expect to simply take some magic action and cause it all go away. This president, nor any other can do that. Over a period of time, we will continue to heal. Over a period of time, our economy will recover, just as it did after the great depression of 1929 and every recession since.

The only thing that is different about our current state of affairs and any other, is that so many people have focused more on getting rid of that single individual in the white house, instead of focusing on what is best for the country and its people. We are not pulling together like Americans can do and have done. We are polarized and have a congress in which one house could care less about fixing the economy. They have just targeted the president's removal as their highest priority....they have publicly stated that. It is on the record.

You speak of the war in Iraq and the brave Americans who were lost. I salute them, as I am a combat veteran myself. That was a war fought on a credit card, against the wrong country, based on inaccurate information, yet we re-elected the same commander in chief and to this day, I hear no where near as much finger pointing and blame assessed to him as I do against the president who just inherited the mess that was left behind.

I am not advocating finger-pointing. The past is the past. What I would ask of you, my fellow American(s), is let's stop the hate of the person and focus more on the fix for the country. Let's work together and support the efforts to heal and repair and mend our nation and get us back on the right track.   

BLAME is easy....BUILDING requires a little more effort.
 
Thats how a president should be

You say that but you don't know what he thinks. So shut the fuck up and vote for Romney ya bitch. ^^
 
After reading all the comments, some good, some moronic and hateful, I have nothing to add.  I'm depressed.
 
Yep. looks like there is an election coming up! How come he doesn't show the same compasion towards the parents of the Navy Seals that died in Libya?  Oh yeah, he's trying to cover that up.
 
bush was bashed for not landing in La. & keeping crews from being able to get down the road while obama blocks crews from getting through so he can have his picture taken is ok! it's been said that he's "looked very presidental" the last couple days. (first time in 4 yrs). today i've heard so much of people complaining about his 'landing & roaming the area' did nothing but block those that were trying to help & those needing help to reach their destinations. this was all for the election - a photo op! he could & should have flown over to view the damage wide spread instead of hanging with Christie (who wants to run for prez & is up for re-election next yr). using Sandy to save his election. disgraceful!
 
idiotic republicans politicizing natural disaster.
 
He does the right thing and shows humanity and people complain, he does not enough and people complain, no wonder he looks 15 years older after 4 years in office! 
 
Way to try and get votes Obummer. 
 
Wooo Hoooo!  I just voted for Romney!!!!
 
This isn't a political thing to do. It's a humane thing to do. 
 
Idiotic liberals covering up the murder of Americans.
 
When American politics overtake your humanity and divide you into ideological camps that judge the other, your country has no future.  Only internal strife and division. 
 
That is one powerful image. Well done Mr President.
 
this is just a publicitcy stun so you will vote for him
 
Actually, America is lucky to have a President who cares about people that much.
 
So was Bush flying onto an base to declare victory in a war that was no where near over......just sayin'
 
I guess acting lessons are paying off.
 
I don't know but instead of asking why? Find a way to make it happen! +Tom J find a way to make it happen Tom
 
there are way too many ignorant ass trolls in this thread
 
That's true +chris bennett , I wasn't going to vote for Obama until I saw this picture. (/sarcasm)
 
Looks like Mr. +Terry Sansom needs his medication.

Is anyone close enough to help him? Or should the Phoenix police be informed?
 
+steven lefler
I think Stephen needs a hug. Call obama. Maybe he will come hug you and tell you that he can remove your pain. Then he can place you on a list for his death panel to decide if you have served him well enough to get the treatment you need. 
 
Okay you don't know what you are talking about if you believe the propaganda about death panels.
 
Mr. President Obama. You have to be the next President of USA again. Good luck!
 
Where is he hiding pictures showing him ordering US troops to save US ambassador in Libya?
 
no he dos not
i now every bitty has there own openion but i think that oboma is a lie and he has prakticly shut my family out of bisnuss
 
People look at these photos and see what they want. Partisans see either a craven photo op or evidence of a humanitarian spirit. The truth is -- Obama is probably a decent dude, and this may or may not have been a photo op. Who cares? People gotta get helped, one way or the other. The photo contains no other important information.
 
but he is a diesent presedent thoe
 
There's a lot of hate in these comments. Are you all really so perfect?
 
+Terry Hood
Call them what you want I will call them what the Soviet Union used them as.

+Eddie Serrano
Boy do you sound like one of Senator Palpatine's disciples.
 
everyone is wrong, I'm wrong, you're all wrong, the president is wrong, romney is wrong, congress is wrong, the supreme court is wrong, republicans, democrats, and every party inbetween are wrong.

Now that that's settled, I wish everyone affected a quick recovery. If there is a (accredited) relief program established I'd like to volunteer my services. I dont have much money, but I've got a strong back, a big heart and a pretty good head on my shoulders.
 
I did not vote for Obama the last election, and I did not vote for him for this election, but this is clearly the president doing his job in visiting a disaster site.  Photo op or not, it is clear he is doing his job. Cant fault him for this one.
 
Where is Mr Rommey ? Why hasn't he visited NJ. Is this the person you want in office ? Does he really care about the people of this nation.
 
What is so terrible and partisan about our country's chief executive going on site for recovery efforts?  Sure he can't fix it on his own but he can go there in person and show he cares.  This seems like a perfectly reasonable thing for the president to do, it is a lot more effective than just giving a press conference.
 
+Ian Atkin
That depends. You want me to compare my self to the person in the white house now, then yes, yes I am. Comparatively speaking only.  As a human we are all far from perfect.

And it is not hate it is seeing the writing on the wall and knowing what is around the corner. With obama it is like the title of one of my favorite books, "something wicked this way comes".
 
He is doi.g it to catch votes good luck with that one i cant wait til they kick him out and if he really gave a shit he would have called in reinforcements for the seals that gave there life he's no leader or hero he's just another who doesnt give a shit and is all about the money!! 
 
My heart goes out to these people.
 
I hope you realize how bad you make Romney supporters look...
 
Great photo op. Right after this he flew to Colorado campaigning again.
 
The President shouldn't go anywhere near the damaged areas.  He ties up the police and just makes the mess worse.
 
You Romney worshippers should look bad. Mitt would not be caught embracing this woman. Mitt would have told this poor woman to go eat cake.
 
O'bummer is only after the vote and will do ANYTHING if there's a vote on the loose.
 
Sometimes a simple hug goes a long way
 
James Z I'am with you. Those who fell victum to this hurricane need others help not their bitch over candidates. 
 
though my sympathy is with the lady being used i have to think of my reaction at first.  "wow,  obamas best photo op yet."  obama tries to link himself to Reagon and i have only one comparison.  reagon was an actor before he was president.  obama became president now he's an accomplished actor. 
 
If no one sees the message that picture is showing Iove. A simple hug yah Noe so true.
 
we voted i hope you save pepole how has been broken hearted
 
Gee... I didn't see him hugging and of the parents of those dead Navy Seals who gave their lives for the Ambassador who also died....
 
He is trying to make up for not caring about the 4 Americans that got murdered in Benghazi, He watched in real time for 9 hours and did nothing to help them. They thought help was on the way as they shot red lasers on the positions that were firing on them. The help never showed up and they were killed. Good man? I don't think So.   
 
He looks so concerned...as if he's not even worried about the election at all...hmmm 
 
Benghazi...so sick of hearing about it...Obama doesn't have to TRY to get votes...he has em!!!
 
People concerned or inspired by president Obama hugging someone...worry me. Its seems as though you would vote for someone based on a hug. Seems less than logical.
 
You right-wing trolls are amazing. Anything to cut Obama down. No credit for any act of compassion, no matter the circumstance.  Pathetic.
 
He shouldn't be concerned about the election right now +Kyle Helms , he is doing his job as president to fix the country, not doing this for the campaign.
 
I really feel proud of our President.! He has my vote
 
+Mike Welch that is a man card violation. You have now been stripped of you card and may God have mercy on your soul.
 
Obama got grey and old immediately after his first briefing. The things he must know.......
Translate
 
As a non American to me Obama represents human decency. He represents a beautiful ideal that anyone no matter about their ethnicity, social class or cultural background can have opportunity. Let him finish his agenda and allow social justice reach the standards it already does inn other western countries. Unregulated individualistic disgusting base hard line capitalism has messed my country up, for years to come. A nice inclusive caring society is man's finest invention, you should get Obama more time to achieve it in my opinion. 
 
Just voted for my president !!! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012!!!yea!!!!
 
Obama God bless you. Havw been insulted ridiculed you remain my idol.
 
Save this country we love.
Vote ROMNEY/RYAN
 
17 trillion in debt and you wanna vote this incumbent piece of shit, that has done nothing in this office look at his record and try and argue with me on anything related to Obama. I know you liberals love him but he wont win the popular vote only the democratic liberal tech votes may win him 4 more years of hell
 
Fudge all of u Obama/Biden is what will save us!!!!!
 
Fudge all of u?!?! That's what you liberals have to say!!!! How rude! Did Obama do that to the families of the four 4 people he and his staff killed in Libya?

and if Romney was pres, he'd be on vacation like bush was after Katrina
 
+nanci wylde you guys are so blind. Obama spends the last week of his presidency actually acting like a president and you criticize Romney for doing what he always does, help people. This is obviously a photo op for Obama and you guys talk about him like he is a god. If it wasn't a photo op why was it published on the white house G+ page. You same people criticize Romney for doing anything at all.

At least give credit where it's due and stop having a double standard for Obama. Romney and Obama can both do exactly the same thing and you will criticize Romney and praise Obama. Its kind of sick idle worship. 
 
I'm waiting for someone in New Jersey to pull a Kanye West on Barack.
 
Way to go Mr. President!!! 
 
+Dennis Johnson if Obama's job is enforcing the laws Congress votes on then why if Congress doesn't pass one of his bills does he just enact it though executive order? 
 
He totally wouldn't!!! The President is definnetly not my favorite Prez!
 
We are so used to politics intruding on our lives we don’t take enough time to be human and while I cannot think right now of a single political thing I agree with the President on, I agree that hugging that women is what she needed at that moment and I appreciate the President for it.
 
+Jonathan Baczewski what not make a political point. Obama is making the storm political by bragging about how sensitive he is to the situation. He's the one making this political. 
 
+Jordan Conn Do your parents know you're on the Internet?

Do you have any clue as to how we got to $17 trillion?

I could provide plenty of facts for you, but your uncouth tongue betrays any sensibility you may otherwise think you are projecting.

I will say that except for the first two months and one day of his administration, republicans have blocked him in the senate anytime they wanted to (300 plus bills and counting).

Putting both wars and Medicare Plan D into the budget, something Bush refused to do ran up the budget deficit. But, just so you know, the budget deficit is shrinking, and by this time next year the deficit that Obama inherited back in 09 will be halved (which is what he promised back in on the campaign trail in 08).

Under Obama, federal spending has been under 2%. You have to go back several decades (before Reagan) to find an administration that spent less than Obama's.

There is no evidence that republicans are fiscally conservative. But if you believe this myth, please do provide us all with evidence. You will find it filed between the tooth fairy and Sasquatch.
 
+Dennis Johnson I hope your joking. MSNBC wrote a completely derogatory article about Romney helping the storm victims. Every dam thing Romney does he's unwarrantlly criticized about. Obama starts acting like a president one week before the election and you don't think people should notice. lmao. Give me a brake. 
 
+Rich White Break.  And I think little things like getting Bin Laden indicate a certain 'Presidentialness' that predates Sandy.
 
Josh, President Obama has done an exemplary job. Imagine if he hadn't inherited a complete and total mess how far ahead this country would be. Your statement it total fiction. 
 
+Earl Baker Bush didn't go on vacation after Katrina. He actually went to New Orleans and you guys criticized him because his plane took up too many resources. Every liberal out there screamed and yelled at all Bush was doing was making it worse by being there because all the Secret Service around. Then the BP oil spill happened and it took Obama 90 days to do anything. a week before the election everybody's praising him for going to see the sandy victims. I'm starting is sick and tired of this double standard. 
 
Absorb how caring he is. Snap the picture. You got that suckers?
 
+Bradford Bright you have your facts wrong that's not how Romney made his money. Just ask Staples, Burlington Coat Factory, Burger King, Toys R Us, Dunkin Donuts, Sports Authority, Guitar Center, Clear Channel, Domino's Pizza, the Weather Channel, silly, and all the other businesses that are around today because of Romney. That's how he made his money. 
 
+Subrina Montgomery Don't bother answering +Rich White I told this idiot a couple of Obama's accomplishments and he doesn't have guts to even acknowledge it. He'll just continue to insult him. 
 
Hugging people isn't going to replace houses 
 
Vote for Obama please Americans!
 
How about telling me one thing that wasn't blocked by partisan politics.... Keep the president and vote out all of the other politicians if you want to get something done. Continue to do so until they get the point, that they work for US! It's amazing that the President is the ONLY major politician with term limits.
 
a vote for obama is 4 more years of hell for AMERICANS,and you alvin get your head of your ass
 
Awesome and honest guy! A true human being. Too bad that not all Americans can appreciate him. Hope he wins a second term. If not he is welcome to Canada. We can make him our prime minister
 
its kinda bs we had a tornado a few years back took out most of our town did he show up no
 
I saw this picture and cried out for real leadership and know how,...and a little less glossy Obama photos.
 
God bless those affected. Don't buy into Obama 's apathy at all. 
 
Obama's doing a great job! Way to go Mr. President!
 
In a way it's kind of strange because isn't he absorbed with his money? 
 
+Garrett Lutz I didn't know he was supposed to show up everywhere something bad happens. My childhood sucked, does that mean he needs to show up at my door and hug me? What nonsense.
 
+Loris Bedrossian Is there room in Canada for more citizens? Cause I think I might have to leave if Romney wins. 
 
Wait, what? Oh crap, I was just arguing with myself on the same thread again. (Funny that I accomplished as much as most comments on most political threads... :)
 
Yes, compassionate for the victims - yet who in their right mind isn't? But this election is not about about a four-second hug, but the prospect that four more years under Obama will be bad for Americans.  Please Canada, recruit him.   
 
Obama could save the world and the GOP and Romney supporters would still find something negative to say. But ROMNEY could blow up the world and they would find some way to justify it. Republicans are completely delusional along with their policies! Please WAKE UP America =/. #OBAMA2012
 
And where are the pitctures of him watching the live video stream of the attack in Benghazi? Hmmmm....
 
President Obama is truly the man! He reminds me of the Cosby Show, so loving, compassionate, yet wise!
 
yet an ass who doesnt give a crap about are ambassitors this bull crap doesnt fool the good hard working americans!!
 
+Chris Esterline Same to you for serving!!! You have an automatic friend in me!!  ANYTIME!!
I work for myself, and the last 4 years have been terrible, but more importantly, if there is no change, then I won't be able to survive another 4.  That's why Voted today for Romney.  I am trying to buy a business, that depends on others businesses to succeed.  So I want to try someone with Business Sense.  If Obama, was a CEO at Yahoo, and kept giving excuses, you would fire him and hire someone with more experience.  Thanks Chris!!!
 
A bit less propaganda please obama
 
+Bobb Cobb nice...I love how you really tap into your inner self.  Feel better?  Isn't it nice to make a fake profile so that you too can be fake as fuck?  Need a teleprompter?  Wait...get on your real account so that we can all see in your mixed glory...because we all know you aren't pure-bred either.  Still need that teleprompter?  Head to Fox News...I'm sure they have something stupid you could say to us.
 
I'm so PROUD that you Mr. President is ALL OF OUR PRESIDENT... J
 
Yeah, well, the damage would have been much, much worse had Romney not been blowing so much hot air towards the east.  He deserves the most credit, and will be sure to release an ad in Ohio tomorrow claiming credit.

And I'm sure Obama is only doing this because New Jersey is a battle ground state and he needs the votes there.

Oh, wait.  

Well, he's only doing it because Chris Christie has been so supportive of his Presidency.

Oh, wait.
 
Is that one of the mother's of the slaughtered Americans in Benghazi?
 
I sure am glad there was a camera crew there!
 
+Dennis Johnson Yes, Romney is all about the photo op. For example the staged donations he collected. Nothing but op for a fake and a puppet of big money. Romney would rather pay one of his staffers to the dirty work of hugging the commoners. 
 
LET ME SPOON FED THE PUBLIC AGAIN SINCE SOME ARE CLUELESS.

The Mess and how Obama inherited it – read it slowly and let it sink in...

This tells the story of why Bush looked so bad at the end of his term.

Don't just skim over this, it's not long, but read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out!

The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007, the day democrats took over the House of Repres.

entatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.

The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault," think about this:


January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time:

The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77.

The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%.

The Unemployment rate was 4.6%.

George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH.

Remember the day...

January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?

BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

It started with Jimmy Carter and his Housing and Community Investment Act of 1977, broadened by Bill Clinton, enforced by Janet Reno, then sent over the cliff by Frank & Dodd. Oh, Obama, as an attorney in Chicago working on behalf of ACORN, successfully sued Citibank for loan discrimination under Reno's tenure!

Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!

Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.

And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA

And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?

OBAMA and the Democrat Congress.

So when someone tries to blame Bush..

REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!"

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.

In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.

In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.
 
Reminds me of him coming to fort hood after the shooting. More about himself then the victims. 
 
Yes obama poses for photo oops while Mitt Romney loads buses and trucks with food and water. You lead with platitudes or by example. Who is the real leader? 
 
To think when everyone was suffering during the havoc Katrina caused, Pres. Bush was on vacation at some damn ranch, and his lackey Condelezza Rice was shoe shopping in Manhattan. It's good to see Obama out there side by side with the people.
 
Honestly, we just don't know who is really empathic and who isn't, because everyone has the chance of doing it for other motives. All we can do is be at our best and not judge people. Maybe he really is doing it because he can't possibly not do it but whether he likes doing it is something on he, and God himself knows. 
 
Mister president Obama I would like to let you know that I got your 6 anytime I will be there for you.
 
Other People want to writing in the page where the President tell

I am so glad that Obama has been our president for the past four years, and I truly hope he is for the next four years.
 
bet that "lady" is pooping her pants she's so afraid 
fan tai
 
Please read this and then come back and talk, OK?  You may have issues with Obama, I certainly do.  I cannot believe a constitutional law professor would further reduce the rights of the citizens of the country.

But when you compare him to Romney.  Is that even human?  Read the link below and think for yourself.

Obama is real American hero not Romney ty
 
Andy bush hates blacks that's fact man
 
Obama is doing a great job already to bankrupt america. Thanks for info was missing many parts to obs story. You should post it , would love to see it up.
 
I think Obama is very good man we have to be honest , you should give him all your votes American people , iam sure he not like fight too . 
 
Read it and I would like you to read about Massachusetts and what's been done to that state with Romney in office with the democrats. I am sick I this bs dem or rep as are many others but I haven't seen the path to success over the past 4 years and people want another 4 years? this is our future someone's got to flip the bill on this spending and I'm sorry but I don't like handing out blank checks for my hard earned money!
 
Btw the president is doing his job in NY and NJ do you expect anything else with the election a week away?
 
I know, I know, shocking to see Obama doing his job right?
 
Well Mr. Obama I give you thumbs up! I just hope your not using this to get points for elections.
 
Yeah, seeing about the people affected by Hurricane Sandy is part of the President's job. And, following is how well he has done his job. This is awesome considering that Republicans in Congress fought him all the way. 

The Obama administration's accomplishments:

The first bill President Obama signed was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, to help women fight back when they don't get equal pay for equal work.

His Recovery Act supported millions of jobs and helped to stave off a second Great Depression.

He pushed for and won middle class tax cuts that benefited every American worker, and saved the typical family $3,600 in taxes over the last four years.

President Obama rescued the auto industry, and now GM and Chrysler are healthier than they've ever been. The American auto industry has added nearly a quarter of a million jobs since June 2009—and they most likely wouldn't exist right now without President Obama's leadership.

He doubled funding for Pell Grants, helping to make college more affordable for nearly 10 million families.

His student loan reform ended billions in subsidies to banks serving as middlemen and reinvested those savings directly in students.
The President established the American Opportunity Tax Credit, worth up to $10,000 over four years of college.

His Race to the Top Initiative helped spur nearly every state to raise academic standards
.
His tax cuts, social-welfare programs, and economic policies lifted nearly 7 million Americans above the federal poverty line in 2010.
President Obama has signed 18 tax cuts for small businesses since taking office.

We've seen 5.2 million new private sector jobs over the last 31 months.

The unemployment rate is at the lowest level since President Obama took office.

Health care reform—passed after decades of failed attempts by every previous president—provides affordable health coverage to every American and will lower premiums by an average of $2,000 per family by 2019.

Obamacare expanded access to lifesaving preventive care such as cancer screenings and immunizations with no out-of-pocket costs for 54 million Americans.

Obamacare ends insurance discrimination against the 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions.

Because of Obamacare, over 3 million more young adults have health insurance today than would if the new law hadn't passed.

The parents of over 17 million children with pre-existing conditions no longer have to worry that their children will be denied coverage.

President Obama has ordered the overhaul of federal government regulations to make them smarter, practical, and more efficient. Just a fraction of these common-sense initiatives will help save businesses $10 billion in the next five years alone.
His historic investments in clean energy have helped more than double the amount of electricity we obtain from wind and solar sources and helped increase biofuel production to its highest level in history.
President Obama is doubling fuel efficiency standards, which will save drivers more than $8,000 at the gas pump, not to mention lessen the impact of automobiles on our environment.

President Obama has taken unprecedented action to address climate change, reaching historic international agreements to curb carbon emissions, and taking action here at home to reduce carbon pollution from our vehicles and promote clean energy production.

He has taken historic action to protect our environment—signing one of the largest expansions of protected wilderness in a generation and putting in place standards to reduce toxic air pollution that will save thousands of lives.

President Obama fought for and won landmark Wall Street reform that reins in the abuses that led to the financial crisis and ends the era of taxpayer bailouts and "too big to fail."

Wall Street reform created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the nation's first federal agency focused solely on consumer financial protection—and the Bureau is already protecting families from unfair and abusive financial practices from Wall Street banks and shadowy corners of the financial industry.

As part of President Obama's commitment to transparency, the White House has posted its visitor records online for the first time ever.
President Obama's all-of-the-above approach to energy has helped cut the United States' dependence on foreign oil to its lowest level in 20 years.

President Obama responsibly ended the war in Iraq.
He announced a plan to end the war in Afghanistan and transition security responsibility to the Afghan people.

President Obama sent the largest security assistance package to Israel in history and funded the Iron Dome system, which is protecting Israeli homes and schools from rocket attacks.
President Obama rallied the international community to implement the toughest sanctions on Iran in history.

Through the President's historic increases in Veterans Affairs funding, he has expanded and improved healthcare and job training access for our returning veterans.

President Obama negotiated the New START Treaty with Russia to reduce the number of nuclear weapons in both countries. At the same time, he also secured commitments from dozens of other countries to lock down nuclear materials.

His administration naturalized 11,146 military servicemembers as U.S. citizens in 2010; more than in any year since 1955.

President Obama set a bold new plan for the future of NASA space exploration, using the skill and ability of the private sector for short trips to the International Space Station, while building a new vehicle for exploration of distant space, and doing everything in his power to support the economy on Florida's Space Coast.

President Obama recognizes that tourism is one of America's largest economic engines; he's worked to encourage international visitors to come here, maintaining our security while keeping millions of Americans in good, paying jobs.

He has affirmed his personal support of marriage equality, directed the Justice Department to stop defending DOMA in federal courts, and took the practical and compassionate step of extending hospital visitation rights to same-sex partners.

He fought for and won the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", allowing gay and lesbian members of the military to serve openly for the first time in history.

When Congress failed to fix our broken immigration system, his administration did everything in its power to improve it, streamlining the legal immigration process and announcing a policy that lifts the shadow of deportation from hard working young immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.

Oh, and he gave the order to send troops in after Osama Bin Laden—and has decimated al Qaeda's senior leadership.
 
All you mother fuckers are so blind. Would he have done this if it wasn't election time. FUCK NO!!! What a nice way to win over people by giving a few hugs. Fuck you Obama! Suck a dick!
 
Was the pres in the situation room during the Benghazi attack like he was during the OBL attack? Would like to see his reaction on film while our embassy was being attacked and he was watching and the administration did nothing. Time will tell, probably after the election, what an incompetent leader he is, he's a better reader
 
the world need more president like OBAMA he truly deserve another round.
 
He has my vote.............
 
He should fly back to Benghazi and give Ambassador Christopher Stevens a hug. Oh wait, he can't because he's dead, I wonder if President Brock Bamma knew in real time what was going on and if he chose not to send a rescue team. I do think about these things.
 
Good going Obama. The people of the East Coast need you.
 
+Angelo TX Do you also think about the thousands of soldiers that have died in Iraq too? of is that on the wrong side of your political rants?
 
So looking forward to these post from the White House, with President Romney at the helm.
 
This is who the man is. He chose to work among the poor in Chicago instead of expanding his asset portfolio. He didn't think he was going to be president then in a million years. He represents a mind set that isn't all about chasing money. Even if the hug is totally fake so what if he came down and did it that's his job. I think you guys have a great man there. The first term was about stabilisation after that other baffoon. The second term will really define his leadership. 
 
A public servant should be judged by what he/she does when not in the public eye. Although there are things that President Obama has done that I disagree with, his heart is absolutely in the right place. A Harvard law grad doesn't go to work with poor people and become a community organizer if they didn't care about public service. And that was long long before senate or presidency. Out of the public eye. That is what defines Barack Obama. And this photo brings that out.
Show me one instance where Romney has done public service when no one was looking.
 
In a f-ked up universe where Romney is president these people would get some snide lecture on pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps and nothing else.
 
We should all stick together thru disasters straight up! God Bless America 
 
I honestly think he would do that if he was still just a governor. He's a man of the people. He belongs to us and will do what he can. Above all, he is another human being. Are there such things as true or false acts of compassion?
 
give him another 4 years! 4 years to clean up the shit from Bush are tough!
Tom J
 
Thats right, no hug no vote...lol
 
+Ron Ellenbecker Conservatives: never missing a chance to be evil shitheads since, well, forever really. Give it a rest already.

This photographer is good. The composition of the photos delivered the feel of disaster and hope.
 
Awe look, Barack is using Sandy to campaign. And Chris knows Barack will get more money printed to send relief. Awesome system.
 
At least he showed up, the other guy was thoughtfully sending useless can goods and offering advice on how to clean up the rubbish left behind by the storm. Forward OBAMA 2012!
 
Where's the photo of that Judas hugging Pat Smith?
 
+Chris Esterline and the cases in Texas, Colorado, etc where illegals were voting? Come on... You need some form of id in this country... Get a bank account? Loan? Etc... Sure as hell don't want government interfering but to be here and vote, needing id is fine. Used to be you had to own property to vote and have the deed... Our liberal/pc society has pushed that away (the need and the deed) but the need to prove you are legal has been here since day 1..
 
Did nanci whyte post and run AGAIN when facts were presented and opposing opinions given... Wow..
 
That's what it's all about people coming together for the good of all.

 
Too late, we do not need OB.
 
Clinton taught Barack well,...  A whole new meaning to kissing babes!!
 
Obama sucks, those are his only good photos 
 
One day of photo ops does not make a good leader.  Where is he now?  Where is FEMA?  Those poor people need food, supplies, help.  Why is the New York marathon using 2 enormous generators when they could be used to power gas stations?  The Federal government sucks and I don't care who is in charge.
 
Mitt Romney said we can work together. Obama was listening to him. It took 4 years too late. Obama just pack your bags go back to Chicago. You are loser.

You are the best president since FDR. You are awesome, Why can't all presidents be like you. 
 
Cada político tiene su propio credo,su manera de gobernar es por
este motivo que hay tantas injusticias,si el Presidente de Estados
Unidos en un momento determinado dejó de lado su campaña
política para ir en ayuda de su pueblo,por el que gobierna,si señores
el Presidente Barack Obama estaba dispuesto a hasta cancelar
reuniones importantes por lo que el pensó en ese momento.como
presidente debía responder a los necesitados,me acuerdo que yo
hice un llamado a todos lo medias para que lo remplazaremos en
días tan difíciles que la Nación vivía.

Will there be this nuch attention paid to the ruin America is in, anytime soon?
 
+kenzie puma Been there done that.

Nice to meet someone who likes that book as much as I do. None of my friends like it 
 
Wow, what a great leader. Unemployment running rampant, kids dying, thanks Barak
 
+Pat Slovokia Think it would be different if anyone else was president. You can't blame the president for a psychopath gunman, nor can you blame him for a bad economy, especially if the economy became bad during the previous president's term .

Are you serious? Even counting both Bush's, Obama is a moron. Where did all the stimulus mopney go? To people who didnt need it? I lost my job as a direct result of the stimulus. We the people, need to wake up. When Quaddafi calls our President "My Son", doesnt that tell you something is wrong? You people are blind, or just plain stupid..
