When are all of the columnists, writers, etc going to wake up to the fact that Obama is no regular liberal politician. He is NOT dragging the US down with incompetent behavior. Obama is a Marxist by birth, training, education, etc. He is doing exactly what he intends to do, and that is destroy the Constitution (or render it ineffective), eliminate the free enterprise, market driven economic system, personally destroy his opposition, and create a socialistic system supported by a dictatorial Democratic Party. Do the research on this guy and you will understand him.
