Barry is straight killin it right now, and the haters are completely shook.
now he just needs to legalize weed and let out the 20% of the prison population who are in for nothing and he will basically be the great social emancipator of our time. a modern day tophat and beard.
GOAT second term.
Sorry? tpp? er, toilet paper poetry? two-pennied pauper? ten pissed people? Ya lost me.

Barry just keeps winning.
He has surpassed Barry Manilow and Barry Gibb in the world's greatest Barry list and looks to close in on Barry White in the next day or so. The guy is skyrocketing up the ranks and should take top spot soon (BTW he is already the world's great Barack...double category winner!!!).
Yeah, that Barrack fella is real popular among a certain group...reeeeaaal popular.
Has a historical precedence among some groups...

The facts expressed here belong to everybody. The opinions are mine.
I don’t post political comments or articles to convince those who disagree with me,
I post them so that those who might agree with such positions will know they are not alone.
Some things are opinions and can be argued - some things are facts and cannot.

He's been popular enough with Americans to handily win two elections, and I'll bet you he's popular enough that the Democrats will keep the White House after the next election. That's popular enough for me.
Be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle.
That is really all you got? A NY Post cover, a moronic meme and a political cartoon?
Looks like Barry keeps winning...
Healthcare is still as expensive in the US as it ever was, 12$ for a paper cup, 39$ each time a nurse pricks your finger for blood work a thousand plus dollars for a short ride in an Ambulance. Tonight on AC360: The extraordinary cost of getting sick in America
Obama has done nothing to address this price gouging and sky high pricing in the healthcare industry, and since you guys love Obamacare so much, you are going to love the Trans Pacific Trade Pact, those sky high prices the US citizens are so lucky to pay will be coming to those lucky countries that sign up for the deal. I will look forward to reading how happy you all are if Taiwan signs the deal and you see your medical costs rise. U.S. Shifts Stance on Drug Pricing in Pacific Trade Pact Talks, Document Reveals
Who do you think is lobbying for the TPP agreement, who's paying all the money? Do you think it will benefit you? The next thing you know the liberals will be asking to be taxed more. Oh, wait, they are already doing that with a carbon tax so they can save the planet. Perhaps Blake Carrington can tell us why he is so thrilled with the TPP agreement, because I've heard nothing but bad things about it.
What Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)?
Because 0bama is awesome!

Where do I start? Very sophomoric thinking in my opinion.
I'll let the very left wing Cornel West respond to that. West thinks Obama has taken no leadership on poverty alleviation, promoting trade union rights etc. He thinks Richard Nixon was to the left of President Obama on health care (see 1:15 to 1:28 of the video link below)

Err....thanks to Justice Kennedy, a Reagan "big tent" Republican from California.
Don't forget who started the ball rolling.
Cornel West, the left wing academic (who I find very entertaining ), in the video above, calls him a "Rockefeller Republican." If Obama pulls a Clinton and veers to the right on some issues, why are you applauding? When choosing Republican lite or a real Republican, I don't think the citizenry will be fooled in the long term. Jeb will kick Hillary's ass.
I prefer Democrats in the US and the Labour Party in the UK when they nominate principled left wing candidates such as George McGovern or a Michael Foot/Tony Benn type of candidate ...of course, I like that because it leads inevitably to a right-wing victory! .....these Democrats that run as Republican lite....they are frauds and addicted to power at any cost (including selling their left-wing soul). Give me a Republican any day!
You're actually a nihilistic sociopath wrapped up in a Canadian flag pretending to be some giant intellect tapping away from a southern French shed.---Broonale
Good points ChewEy, but in an Oligarchy like the US it is all about working the system, not about having principled beliefs (sadly). Principled beliefs only put you in the 'loony' bin (unfortunately).
Obama is getting shit done, not everything he should have, but you gotta work with the tools (double entendre intended) you were given, and considering that he is taking giant leaps in his second term.
Gotta give the guy an A+, I am sorry, there is no other way to slice it, he has 'organized this community' quite effectively.
Don't forget that super duper good deal he just signed with Iran. A+ is right, add that to his next hole on the golf course.
officially out of comebacks. lets talk golf.
You're right of course, I particularly praise Obama for his transparency and honesty, one couldn't find a smidgen to fault him in that regard.
He is getting things done. Not easy with the perpetual gridlock. A+
I agree, and so would millions of illegal immigrants, you can be sure they won't be voting Republican any time soon.
