I think the average American is more adult than the president. He never grew up. He has never had any responsibility. He still has no responsibility because still, no one will hold him responsible for his actions. He makes mistakes but blames them on someone else. The press are such racists they try to help him because he is black. If they were helping him because he is a socialist, or even the worst kind of socialist, it would be bad enough, but they feel they need to help because he is a black man. Shame.

He also didn't grow in America ... and was not reaised by people who loved or respected America ... and therefore he does not think like an American, nor have the welfare of America as his primary motivation.

Obama's primary motivation is the angrandizement of Obama, and the accomplishment of his personal goals. It appears that one of those goals is the destruction of the America he was never taught to love.

Okay,I'll concede that he's a Citizen. The fact remains,though,that had our Government been adhering to their Oaths of Office, (Pay attention to this,PELOSI) he NEVER could have run for Office,because he only had 1 (ONE) Parent who was am American Citizen,and he came to America on an Indonesian Student Visa,and in that,either was an Indonesian Citizen,which renders him ineligible,or lied about it and perjured himself on Federal Documents,which would also render him ineligible.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate voted 54-46 to defeat an amendment that would have required broader background checks on gun purchases. The amendment, sponsored by Pennsylvania Republican Senator Pat Toomey and West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin and pushed by the White House and its supporters, was the last hope for any kind of gun control bill in this Congress, and probably for President Obama’s presidency.

In the lead up to the vote, the president enlisted all kinds of help for his gun control efforts: Vice President Biden, recent opinion polls on the subject, and even, most gallingly, the parents...
