The cruel, bad-mouthing Republicans should all pack up and relocate to some other country where their freedom of speach wouldn't be honored. One of those countries that jail or execute those caught disrespecting their leader! I say this because comments by Republican polititians are soooooo blatantly disrespectable of President Obama!

..."blatant is an understatement"...to call the president a "liar" while he is addressing the state of the union address was the worse infraction from those money hungry republicans who would rather destroy our country just to prove their leader's(Norquist) point that they can...I guess they all have egg on their face now that the president has four more years!!!!

You are so right. Even though Clinton left a surplus, the country still had debt.

I would like to support the President but as long as he keeps talking about "compromise" with fascists he is part of the problem.

I hope the Democrats can find the backbone to stand for hard-working Americans who are entitled to their Social Security and Medicare. Anyone with sense would realize this is a message that would resonate with both liberals and conservatives but common sense seems to be in short supply in the corporate-dominated Democratic Party of today.

If Democrats are serious about fiscal responsibility they will take their case to the People and argue for real cuts in the military budget, closing tax loopholes for the rich and favored industries, ending oil subsidies, ending the cap on payroll taxes and other means of moving America forward.

Then how would you suggest he crafted the policies to move the country forward? Tell me you haven't forgotten that, Fascist as you say, are obstructing his administration. It is a two party system, legislative branch, with an executive and judicial branch of government. Maybe I missed something in government class, but I thought it takes all three branches of government and not just Obama. Damn, there is that double standard again!

Some people are looking at the color of our Presidents skin and saying they don't want him as President. Do we not know that he is 50% black, and 50% white. The two colors together is what make him 100% man for ALL people.

It's past time for both parties to stop using this narrow-minded "fight" mentality. I thought that would end with the election and return of President Obama to the White House. So, I am dismayed when the party I have supported for decades comes out with language "Join the FIGHT to stop dishonoring the President." Politics is the art of compromise and I would like to see some compromising in Washiington. I will hold my party to blame just as much as the opposing party if this government can't...

Politics is the art of compromise and I would like to see some compromising in Washiington. I will hold my party to blame just as much as the opposing party if this government can't agree on a solution to the fiscal cliff. So I voted a straight party ticket and its time for my representative in government to think as elected people and not take the divisive language and actions of young advisors in politics who don't understand compromise because they aren't old enough to have seen that rule and power is about COMPROMISE -- STUPID.

If winning two Presidential elections in a row despite obstruction & Obsfucation by republicans the people (voters) have given the President the mandate to move forwards not backwards. That means conservatives capitulating to higher tax rates on the wealthy ( back to Clinton levels ) forgeting about gutting SS/medicare or privatizing SS with vouchers given in lieu of medicare coverage. Acting on behalf of every Unted States citizen not just their party but the people who elect them, not the...

If winning two Presidential elections in a row despite obstruction & Obsfucation by republicans the people (voters) have given the President the mandate to move forwards not backwards. That means conservatives capitulating to higher tax rates on the wealthy ( back to Clinton levels ) forgeting about gutting SS/medicare or privatizing SS with vouchers given in lieu of medicare coverage. Acting on behalf of every Unted States citizen not just their party but the people who elect them, not the 1% of uber rich or those like Sheldon Adelson who thinks he can buy his way every time. Except this time when the U.S. Justice dept does find grounds on which to char4ge him and have the federal DA prosecute him.
President Obama will go down in the history books in very favorable light, extracting ourselves from Iraq, following up in tracking down and killing high level ranking al Qaeda members Osama bin Laden one of them. passing both the heathcare reform act, saving the auto industry, and actually after bailing out financial institutions is making a profit from the bank bailout. The financial reform bill. I can promise you musch more progressive action in this second term as president.
Second term is nothing to lose, can't run for re election, shoot for the stars , land on a cloud...

Go off ... end the Bush tax cuts, resume business at hand and initiate tax relief for the middle class retroactively. Fear not ... The Obama has spoken, as the people have heard and responded with their answer ... 4 more years!

When did he tell you this or why do you state this or do you really believe this? What would that do to this country and why would he benefit from this. Come on man that doesn't make sense.

Hate dies hard and the true problem is that those that want to side with the GOP are getting stepped on too but, have not taken the time to properly check the facts because they are listening with their eyes and not their minds. If you don't belong to the 1.5% at the top, the GOP ain't got nothing for you, they hate you too!

Regardless of a person 's political affiliation this siutation is just shameful. I had to sit back for eight years, like so many other millions of Americans, and stomach the Bush years. This is what you do as an American citizen. In my opinion the GOP leadership is just fueling the fire of these insane people who want to harm the President and his family. May God continue to bless and protect our President!

The haters don't get it because the holocaust on their ancestors is dead to them therefore, they have no understanding of how we feel and where we are coming from. Their holoscaust history was not past down to them but, our history is still fresh in our minds. We still need to be brokers of peace.

No Opposition Congress in my lifetime has not ever treated a President with so much disdain, land if Congress does it, what is to prevent or influence people to more likely to suggest such action is permissible. When the Republican Whip of the Senate Mitch McConnell states that this congress will do nothing to help the President to win a second term, and then the Tea Party House did nothing to support the President''s American Jobs Act but voted to repeal Obamacare some 33 times, tells us all that something is wrong with a Political party that puts defeating the president of the United States, by doing nothing places them putting the party's interest ahead of the American People and helpline the middle class this country recover and have shown that they favor the wealthy over the best interest of the citizenry. I sign this petition gladly to let the Republican Party know the more they do to obstruct progress, the less likely they will ever regain power. An independent voter.

President Obama is right! I think some programs should look at like government military contracts, rich tax cuts and congress and senate pay checks. Much more!
