There are openings for an economic critique of the administration, but the GOP can't seize them.

We've become so acclimated to the acrimony and vitriol spewed by political leaders that we are no longer shocked by the open disrespect shown to the office of the president. Intelligent and civil discourse is rare, and often trumped by racism and religious bigotry.

We can and should be better than this. America - He's Your President for Goodness Sake! By William Thomas There was a time not so long ago when Americans, regardless of their political stripes, rallied round their pre...

How many times have I heard this man called "Mr. Obama" as opposed to " President Obama".

Let's call it... since day one!

It's a god-damned shame and a simple slight that has far ranging repercussions. The man has been president for two terms and I hear him called the former, more than the latter. 

No other President in my life has suffered such indignity.

Republican candidates are historically cagey about sharing their real platform + agenda. I wonder how many folks would vote for them if they knew....
Polls in a half-dozen states with key Senate races underscore just how much times and political fortunes have changed for the president. In five of the six states, the percentage of likely voters who say they voted for Obama in 2012 has dipped from the actual results.

I have regrets about having voted for President Obama. But I can assure you they don't involve wishing I'd voted for Mitt Romney instead.

Interesting article on the Potus.......

Remember when pundits loved the president? The conditions are right for that old feeling to return.

They look like every other teenager in America that is doing something they don't want too but they are doing it b/c Dad said so.

Somehow, this is worse than the Bush daughters using fake IDs to go drink in bars while under age.

Boener may expand anti-Obama lawsuit that doesn't exist. Brilliant!
The Speaker's new plan involves adding to complaints to his lawsuit against the president. It might help if that lawsuit actually existed.
