Personal popularity means nothing. Barack Obama is a liar. He is a race baiter. He is into class warfare. He's pitting "us" against "them" and he's one of "them." He hobnobs with the rich and the poor think they're going to get out of poverty because Nanny Government will take care of them. They need to read up on history, economic theory, capitalism and the free market system, and then look at how well a child would survive depending on his parents' allowance his entire life. Stay in school, get help in subjects that are difficult, learn job skills and how to work with others and venture forth. Learn to fish. Not the Democrat way, but a better one than Obama's.
