    Default President Obama is a pretty cool guy.

    I would prefer he won the presidency again instead of the republican candidates but who knows what will happen. I'm not the most informed person politically, so this is just what I'd feel safest with. Feel free to tell me what a horrible job he's doing and how he is the complete opposite of a cool guy, so I could get better informed. It's hard to do research when there are so many contradictory sources.

    So this isn't a rant or a rave? This is a "I'm too lazy/dumb to do my own research so I'm going to incite people to yell stuff at me"...how do you know our sources won't be contradictory as well? Do your own god damn homework.

    Most of the world would prefer Obama over the republicans for a plethora of reasons.

    He's not bad, just weak as are most of the US democrats. They never stand up and voice their views against the republicans they just appear to take it. /My opinion.

    At least I can know where you stand without betraying my own position. It's a rave, I guess, because it seems like he's been doing a good job so I'd enjoy seeing Obama get four more years to see what else he can accomplish in that time, hopefully with as few bills as possible fueled by 'lets see how many things we can sign into law that will do nothing but piss Republicans off' syndrome.

    I'm guessing that a lot of people who don't like Obama just aren't going to vote this year. The Republican line-up is ridiculous.

    I think he's a pretty okay dude.

    The guy has it pretty rough. He's responsible for promoting and passing more pro-GLBT bills than any other president, cut taxes multiple times, and tried desperately to reform health care, all in a bad economy which was the result of other people's poor decisions before he took office.

    He's made poor decisions too don't get me wrong. But I hate it when people say he's gotten nothing done. It's really not true.

    He's a pretty cool guy, but he's dumb as hell. He implements an act that lets the CIA kill you on suspicion, as well as setting up highway TSA checkpoints, he just wants martial law. But Romney and Obama are both sides of the same coin. They are going to fuck up our country either way. This is why I wanted Ron Paul.

    With US presidents my thoughts always tend more toward "It could be worse" than "I genuinely like this person". In terms of policy I probably would have preferred Hillary in the lead. I also think Democrats haven't properly pressed the advantage that their opposing party is batshit insane.
    All that really matters, though, is that this year there's a choice between Obama and Romney and the answer there should be fairly obvious.

    Obama seems pretty cool. If you guys don't want him anymore we'll happily trade you Wilders for him.

    Obama's done about as well as I would have expected considering the shit pile of a congress he's forced to work with. I still won't forgive so called blue dog democrats for pussying out during the democratic majority.

    Ron Paul wants to eliminate the EPA and DOE as well as repeal Roe v. Wade, and he's gone on record saying he wouldn't have voted for the Civil Rights Act. Those are all either on his official website or on his biggest supporter website. He also released a series of newletters with racially charged and homophobic language in the '90s--he claims he didn't actually write them, just "skimmed them and signed them," but they say "by Ron Paul," in a newsletter called the goddamn Ron Paul Survival Report.* The largest collection of those is here.

    Dude is crazy.



    *EDIT: In retrospect, it's possible that you actually agree with all the stuff about the EPA and the racism and all that, but regardless of the language the newsletter, this particular blatant lie about is a damned good illustration that Ron Paul is just as skeezy as any other scumbag politician.

    At least y'all don't have to deal with Gillard. She's got her nuts right in the palm of the Greens, and it caused all kinds of problems. This is why I voted for the Sex Party (Yes they're a real political party shut up)

    Is there any way you can flesh out the OP a little bit so it's not "POLITICS= DISCUSS"? We get a bit antsy about low-content OPs in this board. Edit in what you've heard, what you haven't heard, what specifically you'd like to hear about Obama... I dunno dude, make it a paragraph or two instead of a sentence or two if you can.

    It's hard to be a "Chardonnay sipping leftie" (as my father calls it) in Australia, because the ALP are retarded and the Greens go a few steps too far for my liking
    :c

    And they're a real party don't be mean to them

    I guess at the end of the day I'd still prefer the ALP to be in power over the Liberal party, but I'm just still sore after Howard.

    Well I personally hope that Kony guy wins. I've seen signs for him everywhere so he must have a good advertising campaign. I've also heard he has some really good videos on youtube, although I haven't seen them myself I've heard that their life changing. Go Kony! :V

    Do you want to swap Gillard for Key? He's intent on hocking off my country to the highest bidder... and the whole "tax cuts for the rich" he implemented a couple of years ago have done bugger-all to improve the economy.

    I think Obama's done a pretty decent job. I pretty much vote to give anyone that isn't awful the two terms they need to really get things done. I feel like he's genuinely trying to work for America's best interest, unlike many politicians. Ron Paul is an interesting option, and I'd actually vote for him, if he made the Republican primaries. I'd only do so for the fact that he's trying to flip government upside down, and I'm curious as to how well that'd go over.

    I can't blame Obama too much for how his presidency has gone so far. His success in the campaign came from his social platform, then once he had it in the bag, we suddenly were in dire need of an economic specialist, which he isn't. That triggered the Blue Dogs to wimp out on Obamacare and kneecap it down to Romneycare. The end result is that this has been a far ttoo conservative administration.

    One thing is sure though, voting Republican will not help anything, ever. It can only make things worse.
    The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.

              let's go play, together...
