    Anderson, What am I missing? I have watched Repuiblican politicans called our President (Commander and Chief) everything but a child of God and that seems to be OK. However, when anyone says something non favorable about George Bush and or Mitt Romney, they are called "un American." Do these people realize they're show just how desparate they are when they result to attacking our President saying, "He needs to learn how to be am American." What does that mean? "Stay in his place." How dare they. What makes them think they are Americans. Americans no matter what their personal views are would NOT result to disrespecting our leader. They've picket the wrong candidate to run as their Republican canidate and they know it. They'll force him to pick a "minority" candidate to try and close the gap between he and President Obama and even that won't be enough.

    Obama is CORRECT. NO...and I mean.....NO vusiness would exist today WITHOUT the federal government. The Railroad would NO HAVE BEEN BUILT, the Electric grid would NOT EXIST if it were not for the government, highways would NOT been as good as they are if it was NOT for the government...Companies would not have electric to run their busnesses, would NOT be able to ship their goods IF IT WAS NOT FOR HIGHWAYS the government built, companies would NOT HAVE the communications, advertising, mail delivery, all essential to building a busness HELL, if it were NOT for the government we wouold NOT HAVE HAD the industrial revolution.

    The TRUE FACTS are that every business, company and corporation HEAVILY UTILIZES everything the government has provided. Semi trucks tear up roads 15 times more than cars, therefore semi truck companies should pay more. Since when do businesses companies and corporations feel they should not HAVE TO PAY THEIR WAY IN THIS COUNTRY. EVERYONE ELSE HAS TO....USUALLY THE POOR AND MIDDLE CLASS PAY THE MOST BY AFFORDABILITY FACTOR THAN ANY BUSINESS COMPANY CORPORATION AND WEALTHY PEOPLE. PAY UP YOU GREEDMONGERS!!!

If they have credit card debt, they blame Obama! GET OVER IT, HE'S YOUR FRIGGIN PRESIDENT!!! Respect him! He's not the reason why the whole world is going to hell in a handbasket? WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FINANCIAL COLLAPSE AROUND THE WORLD? They are the ones that should be blamed, not Obama! WE NEED HEALTHCARE FOR EVERYONE, not just for the Rush Limbaughs and Sean Hannitys out there! WE COUNT TOO!
