    PLEASE DO NOT LIE if you did not support him from the start, I'm interested to see how many/who have voted for Obama but have lost hope. I was smart enough not to believe him from the start, but I did vote for Bush in 2000 :bump:

    The question should be: How many people who had lost hope because of Bush dictatorship, voted for Obama, the only one of all the candidates actually calling for change.

    Those who did vote for Obama, cannot be faulted for Obama failure to carry through with pledge to change Bush policies. The other choice: McInsane, would have led to an immediate war with Iran, and possible rekindling a cold war, not to mention giving more cause for some Muslim moderates to possibly go Jihad.

    Given the choices in the Republican Clan, and no 3rd party alternative, and Obama seemingly part of Corporate Oligarchy, there are only a few choices:

    1. Get out of USA while you still can
    2. Start combat training, and establish remote area survival HQ.
    3. Apply for govt. aid to secure Prozac and enjoy Brave New World

    Honestly, in the very beginning I was for hope and change.

    But since Obama has been president, I have lost hope.

    Now all I look forward to is change!

    I knew Obama was a fraud and didn't vote for him, but I underestimated just how destructive he would turn out to be. I figured that he couldn't possibly be worse than McCain and looking back I still think that's correct.

    I didn't vote for Obama, but there was a little hope on my part after the election that he wouldn't turn out to be as big of a war monger as McCain. I was wrong.

    Goslash, if you love me, you'll recognize that bombing countries with no authority from Congress is the act of an emperor, not a president, and is far more alarming than anything Republicans have done with Congress's approval. You should agree with that....right away.

    I voted for him and will vote for him again. Until the right wing figures their crap out and stop pandering to these extremist fascists... I will stay as far away from them as possible. The Republican party has become a disgrace!!!

    I repeat: McCain would've been the same thing as Obama.

    The second choice is the most respectful. The first choice is forgivable. The last two are just plain embarassing

    Of course he would. Only difference is the Republicans would be blamed for it instead of the Democrats.

    Now I see what a political maladroit you are. McCain espouses no philosophy that military action can be taken by any president apart from approval by Congress. Your statement is pure fiction and has no basis in reality.

    Goslash is on to something. Plus, McCain hasn't met a war he hasn't disliked yet.

    I support the President; I prefer his VISION over that of Tea-publicans and corporate-worshiping Conservatives.

    OBAMA 2012!!

    I did that poll before, about 85% say they only voted for Obama because of bush. that's how the two party circus works, it's how they help each other.

    I respect Obama, just as I've respected every other President. None of them are perfect or miracle-workers. They're just men (hopefully women, sooner or later).

    Oh, just wondering. Because if you love him, you'll help him pass his jobs plan. Right away.

    Obama has a far better vision for this nation, than the Tea-Party or money-worshiping Conservatives.
