Obama is quickly becoming more likable not because he capitalized on Bin Laden's death, something that has been in the works for awhile, but he is poking fun at himself and becoming increasingly difficult to poke fun at.

I've always thought of Obama as a bad ass, especially when he was able to pass healthcare in the face of political suicide.


So aside from giving my opinion, I wanted to post some pics that support what I'm talking about.

Click the spoiler my lovelies

He's so going to win the 2012 election now.

He started out like an idiot, but he's gained ground positively now. I won't feel hurt if he serves a second term.

I can hardly agree that Obama started out like an idiot, when he had to wipe up the shit storm Bush left in the oval office...

Things are looking up for him now, but to paraphrase Harold Wilson, a year is a long time in politics

Yeah, uh, I'm just going to quote because it's worth quoting. Because there are still people out there that think Obama started the stuff Bush did.

Too bad 90% of Republicans are butthurts. Especially the ones up there with Obama, they just wasted his time when he was really trying to do good. I don't care if he's a touch incompetent, he did a fucking better job then Bush did.

My opinion of Obama has not changed a jot snice I first saw him- a demogogue whose fruition will come to naught!

1- Bush did a terrible job, but you can't pile all the blame on Bush for Obama's fuck-ups. It is a petty, one-sided view that seek to elude responcibility and in the end, will lead to more political blaming and less actual work.

2- Obama's healtcare- it is a miserable thing, and it doesn nothing that he originally promised,but forces people to sign on to a company, with no public options.

3- We elected Obama with the idea that he will get us out of a war, we have just expanded our war from Iraq and Afghanistan to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya.

He is a terrible leader, and I should not be sorry to see him go if not the public mass elect another Bush or Obama, because, in reality, the Political parties cease to stand for anything different and resembles each other in all but name.

Actually Obama's health care reform isnt all that bad of a thing IMHO. At least from my standpoint of being a student its not. That being that the health care reform allows full time students to go back on to their parents health insurance until they are 26.

That one blight of goodness does not taint the millions of woes in that body, nor does that illness weaken that grotesque creature of Mr. Obama's creation. It offers almost nothing he originally promised, forces people to buy from the companies that the nation have lost faith in completely with no public option, and it is, if not useless, harmful to the American People. I have lived through only three presidents, Obama, Bush, and Clinton, and, through my experience, I make this proclamation- It is far, far better we live without government than to be ruled by the same failed policies and incompetence under a different face and with different rhetoric.

I do not play prophet often, but mark my words on this, once the American people realise that Obama probably has no direct part in Usama's death, his popularity will fall to its natural level of under thirty percent.

Ahem...How often do politicians keep their promises?

Anarchy is only an idea and nothing more. Lawless lands cannot exist in equilibrium, even tribal communities have rules and laws within their tribes, to keep balance. While it would be a great idea if we could all exist in harmony, its not in our species nature. Like our government or not, be happy we aren't living in a totalitarian state ruled by absolute fear.

And frankly, just what nature is that? Could it be the fact that neurologically we humans all have the mirror neurons in our brain, which allows us the capacity for self-hood that leads to empathy. Or could it be the existence of the Right Temporo-Parietal Junction, which allows us the capacity to think about other minds. Therefore it's well within our own natural capacity as social animals, to understand the importance of fitting in through socialization. And why your superstitious bias was just yourself being deceived by your own self-righteousness as a predisposed copy.

That is my point, no Politician, not even your beloved Obama, keep their promises and they always rule as their predecessors, thus, it is far, far better we be without them, even if we must rid ourselves of the machine of government. If a limb were to be irreparably diseased, is it not wise to cut it off before it infect and harm the rest of the body? Should not the government, if irreparably diseased, be removed lest it starts to harm the citizenry? But, after that first sentence, you have lost me completely- I really can't tell if you are accusing me of being an anarchist or a totalitarian. Those two principals are, intrinsically, contradictory, one wishing that there be no government, and the other, wishing that government and authorities prevails on all accounts. The first, of course, you characterise by chaos and lawlessness, when Government does not necessarily mean order and law. Order and law may exist without government, and vice versa. The second, you only make reference to in comparison to our current system, that is, that it is better we live free of overt tyranny and under subtle tyranny than the contrary, which I completely agree, we can continue to live under an illusion of progress and power to the Citizenry while our government continue to rule as it always had, covertly, corruptly, incompetently, and following through the same policies as their forefathers of old. But I, myself, am not content with such illusion of power and listen intently upon the false honeyed words of a power-hungry thief and be guiled and lulled to electing a cretin, I would much rather live in a nation free of any government or under a wise prince aided by able ministers than continue to toil under the massive stupidity of this current government.
