Notice the trend of all of the lib shows. Olberman, King, Cooper, and Grace all had a spike after Obama took office and now a year into his term their numbers are tanking agian. Libs becoming dispirited?

I'm not big on Fox News other than Greta's show. I watch her about three times a week. However, I quit watching MSNBC a long time ago, especially Keith Olbermann- that guy is the biggest dweeb on the face of the earth.

To answer Chuck...since I used to be a Democrat (now Independent) yes, the Democrats have become very dispirited. I take great pride in the fact that I didn't get onto the Obama band wagon. I'm watching all those who called me a racist, fall into great despair and I feel no qualms about telling them "I told you so, you freakin' moron!" Yeah...not nice, but they deserve it.

I can tell you, many people I know that felt about Obama the same way I do, moved to watching Fox news during the election because they were the only ones putting out the real information on Obama's record (or lack thereof).

I still can't stand Hannity, Beck, or O;Reilly.

That said, I still think the Republican party is just as bad as the Democratic Party. Most of them are equally corrupt and liars. Until there is REAL campaign reform, we are going to be stuck with a corrupt system of government and I do believe that the middle class will become non-existent in ten years if something big doesn't happen to shake up Washington.

Oh...I almost forgot! I came over here because I saw this and thought you'd get a kick out of it, LA.

There are many on the left who are not happy because they think he is compromising way too much with corporate interests. He is to some degree. All Obama wants is a bill to sign so he can say he's getting things done.

Mary Ellen,

I would expect that by you living in the greater Chicago metro area, you must have known this guy was a phony for years now. To most of us outside your market, he was just a young upstart only five short years ago at the Democratic Convention. A fresh face, someone they might be able to groom for something.

Now... he is the damned President!!

No one, repeat, no one has ever rose out of the wings so fast without making some deals along the way.

LA- Yes, I knew his record very well and when I tried to tell anyone that (by writing blog posts) I was dubbed a racist.

As soon as Obama was asked if he was going to run for President and he said that he wasn't ready for that yet...I KNEW he was going to run because anything that came out of that man's mouth was a lie.

And you're right...no one comes out of obscurity and rises to the top that fast without having the backing and money of the corrupt.

Obama isn't just a guy who's in over his head...he's a narcissistic sleazeball and has gotten through his entire adulthood using his race and charisma to cheat his way to the top. No man who claims to be as smart as he is, hides his school record from the public like he does. There's a reason no one can see it, I lay odds on you that there is something really dirty in that record of his.

Oh...and he's not done yet, wait until he passes this health care bill, that was only the beginning. That will be the start of a huge avalanche that will continue to strip the people in this country of their freedoms. Just watch him during the next State of the Union, that will give you a hint of what's to come.

Hard to believe that it could get much worse. But hey....we are talking about greenhorn leadership with no real vision except to screw things up worse than they already are.
