The sooner he’s gone the better. We have a long road to hoe to get this nation fixed. If it can be fixed.

“We have a long road to hoe to get this nation fixed.”
Assuming a new rat doesn’t occupy the office.

That's right. George Bush is back at the ranch painting pictures. On the other hand, Bill Clinton is showing up all over the place.

I expect Obama to get some high UN post after he leaves office. American taxpayers will continue to pay his salary.

I knew history would be kind to George W Bush, since he actually accomplished many great things during his presidency.

But Obama... has literally accomplished nothing (unless you consider advancing the sodomite agenda an accomplishment), and when liberals look back on his presidency in the coming years they will get madder and madder :)

Besides being half black Obama has managed to do basically nothing except break anything he has touched.

It seems that once again we will have a choice - a choice between a worthless grifter (Clinton) and our budding aristocracy (Bush).

The same as it ever was.

What a blessing it will be to see the Worst Couple leave the White House! Maybe they can return to Kenya and be the next royal couple to rule there.

But let us pray the first Black president is not followed by the first woman president, Mrs. Billy Jeff Clinton. The nation will not survive.

“...and our budding aristocracy (Bush)”

After the way Jeb handled the Terri Schavio incident, I would stay away from the voting booth. He would not even be worth holding fingers on nose and voting. However we need to get a repub in office no matter what and I will vote for him.

I don’t think Bush did the country many favours. The reason there are a lot more overreaching organizations is because he started them. I don’t think he was a true conservative.

Ronald Reagan was a decent one, Calvin Coolidge even better.

the president made it clear he expects history to render a better judgment on his performance than the public.

I'm thinking the opposite.

....hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating,....

Scoring points with the voters?? How about respecting the wishes of the voters. These statists never seem to understand that sometimes doing nothing or opposing tyrannical laws is the right thing to do. They think Congress must forever be legislating something - anything, even if it's wrong

See that's the difference between the Clintons and the Obama's

Clintons were white trash grifters who think silverware was worth stealing...

The Obama's being the gibsmedat ghetto grifters that they are, I'm sure have ALREADY stolen billions of taxpayer dollars though phoney democratic front organization to continue this country's transformation after he leaves office...

Remember the progressive hard marxist left never give up..

His demeanor matched that of his White House, dogged, hunkered down, like Butch and Sundance in Bolivia, surrounded by an increasingly tuned-out public, opportunistic Republicans, often feckless Democrats, and a skeptical press corps.

A skeptical press ? ....LOL

If any GOP POTUS acted like Obama there would be daily loud voices from every segment of the media to impeach this lawless President ....

“Therefore, the American people have wisely established a custom against allowing any man to hold that office for more than two consecutive terms. But every shred of power which a President exercises while in office vanishes absolutely when he has once left office. An ex-President stands precisely in the position of any other private citizen, and has not one particle more power to secure a nomination or election than if he had never held office at all, indeed, he probably has less because of the very fact that he has held the office.”
- Theodore Roosevelt

Respectfully disagree...

He and Reggie will be running out of the White House come Jan 17th...

Obama is a true believer who thought being POTUS was like being King...

He thought every dictate that pops into his marxist head could be a reality just be him speaking it out...like Rameses of the 10 Commandments... "So it shall be written. So it shall be done"

He found out though badly broken we have a check and balance type government that in many ways have put up roadblocks to him transforming America into his progressive fantasy..

Once he leaves the office he will be free to continue his quest without federal government checks and balances, scrutiny and accountability...

His race card is still fully charged and ready to use...the media will love him even more

He can't wait to get out...

I just think he’s too narcissist to go.

I’m not even sure we’ll get to Jan 17th, right now I’m not sure we’ll get to next week.

Treachery is afoot to be sure.

Obama will be nothing more than a minor footnote in history in 100 years. His greatest accomplishment being the color of his skin. The Franklin Pierce of the 21st century.

* Oh, in case you didn’t know, Franklin Pierce was the 14th president.

The man is a congenital liar. If you believe he is going to step down and become just another face in the crowd, I have prime farmland in the Gobi Dessert to sell you.

He has no respect for the Constitution, so why would he let it stop him from running again ..... and again ..... and again, ad infinitum?

I was surprised to see so many Obama signs, in 2008 and 2012, in the front yards here in the northern OBX of NC. You just can’t talk these low information voters into seeing the Republican point of view.
