Well, since He is a Dictatorial/Socialist/DEMLib, we will have to show up on Election Day and Vote Him Out!

Maybe one day His Peace Prize Medal will be in A Pawn Shop in Chicago and being So Poor, maybe all he will have to eat are Acorns and left over sips of beer in the strewn about cans on The Streets.

Being such A Smartie, he might be seen Playing Chess down there on The Shore of Lake Michigan. Gots to keep Brainiac Brains active.

Hopefully, he will be able to draw Welfare. The REAL Work will do him good. Keep DEM creaky 'Ole Bones on dat Skinny Frame limber like.

His Kids will be working at Mickey D by then and maybe can buy Him a Full Can Of OBlabby Beer. As long as it won't hurt His feelings about DEM Good 'Ole days in The White House.

Yep, Vote 'em Out.

MEH for Prez.

Mark, you may not like Obama but he is not a dictator. Saying that is silly.

I think calling him a dictator is an insult to all those oppressed people in the world who do live in a dictatorships.

If the USA was a dictatorship, you would not be posting here and you would not be allowed to say that!

Bush started a war and Obama is the dictator..OK

Mark, dictators don't have free elections or isn't your state going to have one?

Mark as a working man I suspect you will not fare well either. Look at the Caterpillar strike in Joliet, Ill. I fear you are next, union or not.

Mark, apart from gut feeling, what is it you have against Obama ?

He inherited a mess and has been between a rock and a hard place from the word go. If McCain had been elected he would have had to have behaved in a very similar to what Obama has done. If he hadn't the world would now be in a depression that would make 1929 look like a mere hiccup.

I suspect the 2008 election was one the GOP were quite happy to lose. Because now they can sit back and blame Obama for a situation that has it's roots in the Bush years. It's a bit like someone setting fire to a building, handing the keys over to a new owner just as the ceiling caves in and then blaming them for the fire.

You can't cut taxes and run two wars on credit forever. When your country's main export is jobs, it's logical that unemployment will rise and the demand on welfare, medicare, medicaid, etc. will rise. Drive wages down. tax revenue falls and consumer spending falls. You don't have to be Spock to see the logic in that.

If Romney gets in and starts making the cuts he has promised, you will see why the Homeland Security Act was introduced and the limitation on using US troops against their own citizens on home soil was removed. Hungry, homeless people tend to take to the streets and when a goodly percentage of them are combat trained Iraq/Afghanistan veterans, things could get very nasty.

The GOP has to know this and if Romney/Ryan get in their actions will be quite different to rhetoric they are spouting now.

I suspect the claims of dictator come from the executive orders issued by Obama.
Any of the more impartial people care to look at the following? I will honestly state in advance of cut and paste I have not read these at the moment:

just a thought.

Romney claims to have a plan to create jobs. A super secret plan. It will probably be pretty awesome since his time at BAIN capital was just the opposite. Perhaps that is the model he is using. Take Bain capital and do exactly the opposite to create jobs. But wait wont that cut into his own profits. Scratch that. keep wondering since any plan he has is most likely going to look very similar to Reaganomics or W's Tax cuts pay for themselves logic

Many of these are just day to day "admin" tasks of little national importance such as...
Executive Order 13542 - Providing an Order of Succession Within the Department of Agriculture.

In most democracies it is common for the Executive to make such orders to avoid tying up the congress/parliament with minor details.

Others such as
Executive Order 13574 - Authorizing the Implementation of Certain Sanctions Set Forth in the Iran Sanctions Act of 1996, as Amended

would have been made under legislation already passed by congress.

I tried to find some that might have been made to bypass an obstructive congress, but there was nothing in the titles to indicate which ones these might have been.

Mark, you are correct, "a hard rain is gonna fall". I guess with Mitt it won't be on the working man because many of them will not have jobs in this country, therefore they will no longer be working men.

You're going to vote the teabagger line no matter what the truth is.
Good luck with that.
