With his approval rating sitting at an all-time low of 40 per cent amidst the debt crisis, tens of thousands of Americans unfollwed the President to avoid the deulge.

The president’s staff sent a total of 118 tweets asking his followers to write their Republican lawmakers to demand a compromise on debt legislation.

The first tweet read: 'The time for putting party first is over. If you want to see a bipartisan #compromise, let Congress know. Call. Email. Tweet.

He should be banned from Twitter for spamming.

He’s not my president. In my mind, we are absent a president at this time.

Obama still has 9,000,000 Useful Idiots waiting breathlessly for his 140 characters to incite them.

My question is simply, is this all the Leader of the Free World has to do all day? Is the POTUS a 13 year old girl?

What is truly pathetic is that there are over 9 million people willingly signed up to receive his lies via social media.

Judging by his Facebook fans I can assure you that the majority of them are outside the country.

I cannot stand listening to him. I have not seen a speech of his or listened to a speech of his since he had become President. And I cannot stand his lies he posts on Facebook and Twitter.

Being politically involved (fake democrat FB and Twitter accounts and all) I do post on his Facebook. So, whenever I do that I "like" his page first, post my comment and "unlike" his page. That's how much I cannot stand him.

That being said, just because someone "likes" a page does not mean they are all fans of his. I'm sure the conservative political pundits are among those 9 million. I know Sarah Palin is. It's a way of keeping up with the enemy. But me, I can't stand him enough to see his posts so I "like" his page, post then "unlike". I guess I am what you could call a "drive-by poster". ;)

He doesn't know how to Tweet. He has a "Reggie" when he wants his Twitter pulled.

Might be the difference between “acts like” and “is”.

With the dead, nonexistent (but voting!) ACORNs, and illegal aliens, that still brings his total to 50,000,000.

A very large percentage of his followers are the media who need to “do their job” (get talking points).

Another large portion is opposition researchers who are looking for mistakes/flubs.

A second segment is his own party members who are looking for talking points and want to stay on message.

A massive portion is overseas useful idiots (this is why we need to allow the world to vote in US elections)

This leaves Obama with very few followers in the US who actually support him.

This is why he is giving out free cell phones and 500 minutes along with food stamps. We are all paying for his tweeting campaign.

He’ll never amount to nothing more than a community organizer if that at all. A total failure he is.

On his twitter page, on the right, there is a section called Similar to @BarackObama

2 of three listed first:

Similar to @BarackObama

Lady Gaga and

Perez Hilton

How fitting

An outrageous completely plastic narcissistic entertainer

And a bitter hateful flaming narcissistic homosexual

Twitter got that corollary correct!
