Obama this morning telling Dems they have to FINISH THE JOB and mocking the election of Scott Brown as any victory for Repubs. HE NEEDS SOMEONE TO TELL HIM THAT HE IS NOT LEADER OF THE DEMOCRATS HE IS POTUS and if 41% of WE THE PEOPLE don't want these radical changes it is time to LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE. The Repubs are not the PARTY OF 'NO' ..they are the party that are listening to their constituents CRYING OUT."NO"...STOP THE SPENDING OF BORROWED MONEY FROM CHINA, STOP THE TAXING, STOP THE HEALTH CARE OVERHAUL...WE THE PEOPLE DON'T WANT YOUR RADICAL CHANGES. The Dems in office best quit listening to Obama and begin to get a feel what their constituents are also saying. I understand that Obama and the Dems thought they had a mandate. The far left read his books, heard his speeches and knew what he meant by FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING AMERICA but the majority of Independents and Republicans, and blue dog Dems that gave him his overwhelming victory didn't know. Now they are awakening to what he said in his book "The Constitution is fundamentally flawed" and that "Fundamentally Changing America" may just mean he wants to change the Constitution. We now are paying attention to his seeking out Marxist, Communists, etc. as he said in his book, and we see him implementing Saul Alinsky tactics that he taught as a Professor. We see what his Community Organization was all about...and WE THE PEOPLE intend to continue to be THE PARTY OF 'NO' thru Tea Parties, thru Repubs, thru blue dog Dems, thru Independents..WE THE PEOPLE ARE THE OBSTRUCTIONISTS. At least Clinton grew a brain and led from the center. SO MR. PRESIDENT...'STOP THIS TRAIN WRECK'!

Good Morning, Mr. President!
Good Morning, America!
As I viewed today's "agenda" for President Obama,
I was not familiar with the first order of
business ..."9AM Pool Call Time." I do hope my
first thought was correct. That thought is as
follows: President Obama takes a "regularly
scheduled" morning swim! Certainly, I will joy
in any information that says, President Obama
takes "regularly-scheduled" time out to relax!
