I absolutely do not think President Obama is trying to divide our country. Our economy is bad right now, so people have to blame someone. Most certainly the the path to where we are now was already set before he became president. I know I'll get a lot of flack from this post, but that's the way I feel.

Shirley, that is certainly your right to think what you want. I personally think promoting class warfare (rich against everyone else) and increasing racial tension qualifies as dividing our country.

Patricia Anne Gilbert Promoting warfare????Come on......I think people are so prejudice and radical in their thinking. I just really, really hate to see such hatred in our country, Democrat or Republican. I don't ever remember in my many years of life such a vile, hate filled condition against one man. I'm not saying he hasn't made mistakes, he has, but every president that has ever been elected has also. People say things that aren't even true and people like to jump on the bandwagon...

That's all I'm going to say on the subject because I am a Christian and I refuse to let myself be drug through the mud.

Belinda Duras Whether we like Obama or not, I think we should respect him. After all he is the leader of our country. What in the world do you think the rest of the world thinks of us when there is so much hate, disrespect and down right trashy remarks made. I'm embarrassed for our country, not because of Obama, but because of the crude way people are acting!

But that's the way it really IS in this country....Obama is just confronting the reality of the uneven slate and its consequenses....NOBODY needs so much money they couldn't even spend it all if that was all they did for the rest of their lives, and there are SOOOO many people like that...and SOOO many people struggling just to survive...in that climate how could we NOT have racial tension and division and a real darn MESS in this country...Obama is just trying to find SOLUTIONS to problems...

@Shirley A Martin-McMillen - I agree with you. Not only is our economy bad right now, it was bad before President Obama got into office!!! People seem to forget that it was G.W.Bush that was in office during the crash of 2008!!! As you said in your comment, " Most certainly the the path to where we are now was already set before he became president."

I do not think President Obama is trying to divide the nation. I believe right now the republicans are trying to divide the nation between the rich and poor, gay and straight, women against men. I use to be a republican, now I am an indepentent. I vote for the person who is for the most americans. Ecomony is better. Would be nice if us middle class could stay middle class. The republicans have done nothing but throw roadblocks in the way for the last several years. They are becoming more of a cult than a political party.

Seriously? For Pete's sake that's all the democrats do is squeal about rich republicans (while lining their own pockets), carry on about the 1 % (many of which are included), and all I've heard lately is how republicans are waging a war against women! Obama's machine are slick social media manipulators. An all anyone wants to do anymore is read ignorant posts and hit the "like" button because they're too damn lazy to dig into the facts!!

Kristie Forguson Godwin U said it well. Follow the facts and as for the English, its because he (Obama) is nicer to outsiders than us and who can blame him, he's not one of us, thank god! I'll bet England would send him back after his first vacation; but maybe not cuz they're accustomed to paying for royalty that do nothing but smile and wave!

Lura, very well stated. I agree 100%. I, too, am an independent. All I hear is the Republicans blaming everything on Obama, from the Gulf Oil spill to the national debt. Seems to me like the wars we have been and are still involved in has the biggest thing to do with the national debt. Obama didn't involve the US in the war in the Middle East. It was on the table for him when he stepped into the presidency. I, too, think the radicals, Republicans & Democrats are what is dividing our country. All I can say is God bless the USA.

well Lura, from what i've seen, the democrats have been in charge of both houses since 2006. so tell me how the republicans have blocked anything? obama did the same thing that clinton did with the 104th congressional elections. he threw his congress to the wolves, thereby giving him an excellent chance to reelection in 2012, just like clinton. all he has to do is play ball with the republicans (like clinton) allowing them to repair what pelosi and reed destroyed. and the other diffrence is,...

well for 3 years now your president has blamed bush for the obama screwups...so what you've just said was, "it's ok for you independents and liberals to blame republicans for yours and their mistakes but it's not ok for the republicans to place blame where it actually belongs, including themselves"? typical independent, you don't know what to think or say until a liberal tells you what to think and say...yeap typical...

He is not trying to divide the country. That is the most ridiculous thing I've heard said about him yet. When the economy is bad, people have to blame somebody and President Obama gets the blame for everything. The radicals are more vocal than those of us who are not.

Kristie Forguson Godwin Yes I agree take him !!! BUT DONT GIVE HIM BACK I DONT WANT THAT JACKASS WHO CUT 850k+ Jobs Bush created which one was mine back here in our COUNTRY. ALL this guy has done is cut jobs and make people go on Food stamps and welfare because there is no jobs to get. And then the big companies down size to Part time work min wage and flex workers so they dont have to pay medical which saves them money. But that was all because they thought Obamass care was going to get...

So now they have a bunch of Part time works and a BIG turnaround !!! Thanks to Obamass !!! Love that Change !!!! I dont.

We don't need more government, we need less and personally, government doesn't belong in my spiritual life at all. All the times it should have been there to protect sanctity of life, the left cried "foul" . The liberals want it both ways but they're in for a shock cause I know how it all ends as do most christians and our side wins!
