    I think it's just frank talk. Obama isn't going to have enough support to do anything prior to the election. In his second term, he will have more flexibility because he will not have to worry about re-election, but that doesn't mean anything sinister. It's just the way it works.

    Wonder if there will be another chest beating "mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa" global trip to apologize for the shortcomings of the "previous" administration.

    I thought this a nice assessment of the open mic flap. The president would have done better for himself if he had made distance from the comments. It seems amateurish that he did not.

    The zero knows that if enough voters put him back in office after seeing the results of his first term, then,with no re-election worries nor accountability (proven by getting re-elected) he can do pretty darn well as he pleases, and the gullible public will swallow ANY explanation with "pied-piper" eyes wide shut!!!!

    4 more years of this yo-yo and the US of A will cease to be - we'll then be just one more 3rd rate, poverty stricken country, like most of those in Africa today.

    Then all the ZERO worshipers will be yelling "Wha hoppen???"; but, too little, too late.:BangHead::BangHead:
