Sorry folks, but America's best days are behind her. We're no longer that shining city on a hill. Barack Obama had one mission: the complete destruction of this once-great country. And boy has he succeeded. RIP USA: 1776-2008

If you're pessimistic cause of Obama then you're obviously ignorant of GOP supporting him on drones, NDAA, concentrating the wealth to the top 1%, warrantless wiretaps, and countless other policies you don't know about passed with bi-partisan support

I don't like Obama one bit, and I still laughed at "Obama Recession. " Don't kid yourself, the ingredients for this recession were put in place before Obama took office.

we spend more than we make, our criminal justice system is screwed up hilariously, our politicians are as crooked as they get, and our tax and welfare systems are border line socialistic. our education system is horrible, polarizing the country making high school worthless, and college expensive.

As long as O is in office...we are doomed. He is not a red blooded American who wants freedom. He wants to suppress and bankrupt us into submission.

I am always right about things that go on in DC and I will be right again. You will see

Not at all, we declared independence in 1776 and ratified the constitution in 1788. But since most people don't know the distinction, I went with the better-known date for clarity.

And maybe the ppl voting yes are optimistic because they believe in the people of America and understand we aren't defined by a president or the government.

Reagan raised taxes 11 times. Obama tries to raise taxes once and gets called a socialist.

Actually he supported those things only after he was elected and put all those programs on hyper-drive. He only knows small ball issues and the big issues are left floundering because he has no clue how to fix.

Who are the 26% voting yes?! Have you not been paying attention for the last five years? The Obama Recession has destroyed our economy, he's added more debt than the previous 43 presidents *combined*, and made us a laughing stock the world over.

Only hope for America is to abandon the two party system, the R and the D. There are a lot of things unconstitutional passed with bipartisan support.

...Or just come to the logical conclusion that both parties are liars and relatively identical, and go vote 3rd party. Libertarian and Constitution parties would be excellent options if we could get past this ridiculous 2-party mentality.

73% said no. Just saying, maybe you are in the minority and it isn't just the "hyper-religious"and the tea party who realize the country is headed in the wrong direction. I'm not a tea partier, by the way. But I will proudly admit I am very religious.

Lets see I'm not gonna blame him for everything....but what he has caused: Obamacare, division among races, division among incomes, hatred toward the constitution calling those who follow it "extremists" (again division), and calling big gov good.
