I wouldn't be long here for any reason, there is so much potential damage and loss from lawsuits, but there is the fact that Obama will do anything to get re-elected.

I actually voted for him, i thought that he stood for change. I feel like a fool, but after seeing what Bush did and how well Clinton did i thought the Democrats were ok. I think the Tea Party is going to start to take over. I think people are fed up. according to polls 75% of people dont trust the government. I suppose the other 25% are hardcore dems or just dont follow the news.
