    I Knew Barry Obama Would Be President

    When Barry Obama gave his speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention, there was no doubt in my mind that he would be running for President in 2008, I believed from the very beginning that our country need a change and that Barack Obama was the man who could bring about that change...

    I Did And I'm Glad

    I did vote for Barack Obama and I'm glad that I did. I am disappointed with the new health care reform because it's not the same as he promised, but it is still a step in the right direction. I believe he may be the change that this country needs. It's been such a bad place for...

    After Years of Voting Republican

    And I still stand behind that vote at this moment.  People aren't giving Obama a chance to deliver, they are condemning him before he takes any kind of action.

    I Did And I Will Again

    Barack Obama has done an excellent job as president. Why? because he cares about people, not the rich and the corporations. All americans now will get healthcare, we are well liked in the world again, he hasn't started any stupid wars, and he has been doing a great job on the...

    I think Barack Obama is doing an excellent job in office. So glad that Bush is out of office, and so glad that Mitt Romney didn't win! At first, I was so scared that Romney was going to win because they just counted Texas's votes, then I realized that the west coast hadn't been...

    It Took a Lot of Consideration

    I am so disenchanted with our two party system, I really wanted to vote third party, or just write in Paris Hilton (hee hee). But when it came down to it, I could not leave McCain to chance, mostly because he got so crazy in the last few months. If he had remained his normal self...

    I Voted For Barack Obama Both Times!!!

    Yes. I voted for President Obama.  He was the most sensible person around after the insane years of Dubya. He left the present President a mess, hoping that the US would blame President Obama.  Some do blame him for our situation, but the intelligent ones do not. The mess was...

    With No Other Real Choice, Obama Will Be Re-elected

    First, in my opinion, most congressmen/women and senators are simply legally supported thieves. Ron Paul, and I hope Ran Paul, seem to be exceptions, and I am sure there are a few more--but most are inveterate liars and hooked on spending other people's money, ignoring the rules...
