  • Mr. Obama:

    During your campaign in 2008, a great many promises were made. This is very common for any candidate and certainly, we wouldn't expect anyone to average 100%.

    My question to you is Which of the promises that you kept makes you the most proud?

    Do you feel as though you united Americans with your leadership or divided them?

    Would you be willing to donate your entire salary to cut down the size of the national debt, if you are elected for a 2nd term ?

    Take fewer vacations? Eat hot dogs instead of steak? Eat beans instead of gourmet cuisine?

    Take the Austerity Pledge and ask that all members of Congress donate their election coffers and salaries to children's health programs?

    Do without health insurance for a year to see what it is like to not have it when you need it most?

    I would ask these questions of any candidate regardless of party.

  • Mr. Obama,

    Since you took office, you have broken campaign promises, wasted millions of dollars of taxpayer's money on failed green companies, food costs have skyrocketed, oil has more than doubled, you have blocked ways for our country to become energy independent by drilling for our own resources, unemployment has hovered around 9%, you pushed through Obamacare when the majority of Americans were against it and the country can't afford it, you have never submitted a budget to balance the debt, a debt you added 5 trillion to in just 3 1/2 years, you have ignored the constitution when creating your policies, you have no jobs-creation plan, nor have you tried to reduce the regulatory burden on businesses, and several scandals have occurred on your watch such as the GSA scandal, Secret Service scandal and Fast and Furious. I think it's safe to say that no one is better off than they were over three years ago. I think it's also safe to say that most people have it worse now. I see no upside to another four years of you in office. So, can you tell me why the American people should re-elect you to four more years of the same misery?

  • Would you debate Ted Nugent on national television.

    Are you a Christian who believes in Jesus? Can we add "In God We Trust" back where it belongs, and let our Christian children pray in school if they wish to?

  • Buckshot61, your first sentance should be "While campaigning for your ONLY TERM in office. I agree with all the rest you posted.

    Mr Obama,

    Do you believe in any religion that believes in talking snakes, talking burning bushes, people living in big fish, people walking on water, people raising people from the dead, people coming back to life after they are dead or do you hear voices of a higher being? If so, please submit yourself for a mental evaluation and start taking your crazy pills.

  • Mr President. After the November election you will probably have a lot of time on your hands. Do you plan on spending most of your time with Bill Ayers or the Rev?

  • Dear Mr President after your re-elected will you ask Gov Romney to create all those jobs he talked about in his campaign speeches?

  • Mr. President, what have you learned from your mis-steps, and if you had it to do over, what would you change?

  • Mr. Obama:

    How much did you pay her and did you use tax payer funds?

    Oh yeah every single one of them should. Except Ron Paul he is the only one that actually makes any sence.

  • They are both icky. We need "choices" before we can really say we have "choices." Sad-sad day when we really have to vote on this.

  • I can tell you one thing---I will never vote for Obama. I would rather face the devil that I do not know than the fraud we have Buckshot. Obama has a proven track record and with that said...he needs to get out of the White House and head back to wherever it is that he is going to "retire" (probably Brazil). This country can't stand another 4 years of rule under Obama. We will not survive.

    Obama=No Hope/No Future For America.
