    Calling Obama a community organizer is like calling Fiorina a receptionist....

    I agree that as governor of NY, for example, he then would have the credibility needed to advance to become a serious contender for the presidency. And I think he'd do a fine job as governor, far better than Cuomo and probably as good as Giuliani and better than Bloomberg! But as for the present, I think his intention and purpose is to force the other Republicans to seriously address many of the real issues we care about, such as jobs, a border fence with Mexico, and to be a far stronger negotiator with countries like Iran, China, Russia, and Pakistan! And I honestly believe he has the chops to do that!

    A duly elected United States Senator and twice duly elected POTUS.

    Well, he's closer to right than thinking being a radical community organizer qualifies you.

    But Obama was a Senator! He voted "Present" a lot. He also chastised Bush for things that he later embraced as POTUS.

    Glad you added the adjective "radical" as well. How true.

    Says right wing Faux News style propaganda, which I see you bought into based a upon a video of one person out of the 69.5 million people that voted for him

    Naw honey. It's what I believe to be the truth. The blacks voted for him because he's black. The majority of the rest voted for him because he promised them all freebies.

    It's a shame that nobody wants to sacrifice today for the benefit of future generations. This clown doesn't care about the shambles his runaway spending has left us in. He's an egomaniac that incorrectly thinks he knows what's best for us, and could only play out his plan by lying to the people repeatedly and offering free stuff so those low information, gullible voters would support him.

    The present votes were not as a U.S. senator, they were as a state senator and about 3% of the time. Another RW talking point regurgitated without understanding it.

    - - - Updated - - -

    What was radical about his brief time as a community organizer? That he worked for a church?

    - - - Updated - - -

    What free stuff did he offer?

    Haven't checked how the economic indicators have improved over the years since 2008 when Obama's (*)(*)(*)(*) of a predecessor rode off into the sunset I guess.

    As president, he'll be torn apart by powerful foreign leaders.

    A junior Illinois senator who, was it not for an affirmative action, would serve Bill Clinton his coffee.

    I'd rather Trump win than any of the other candidates.

    He's such a corn-ball that I think he's the kind of guy all Americans can get behind and laugh at if nothing else - instead of continuing to be bogged down in this two-party crap.

    Why, what do they have on Trump?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Nah, not because of Obama. Inspite of Obama's sheer incompetence. Come on, be honest.

    Not to mention, I don't know a lot about Trump but I know that most of the gripes about him are that he's a TV personality and not professional enough to run a country.

    But since he's a TV entertainer, a lot of that is easily just part of his TV persona and not a reflection on his actual competency.

    I agree the chances of him being the nominee are slim though

    I don't mean that they know some horrible secret of his. I just mean I can't really picture him fairing well against a foreign leader like Putin. I think he has potential with domestic policy, but he'll be destroyed on foreign affairs.

    What's the mark of. Good business leader? I mean, what does good business leader do best? That's right, delegate. Does Obama delegate?

    Trum will surround himself with good professionals and will trust them to do their job.

    so he says he would pay web developers 3 dollars for a web page.... don't care how many jobs you create, that's pretty cheap for a serious web site?

    maybe if it was foreign outsourced you could get something for $3.00
