People who didn't vote for him make it hard for me to take in their point because they came in with a slanted view from the beginning. And for the record everybody is different. I have never met a Republican or an opponent of a candidate I favor who could change my mind but I definitely listen and learn more from those who voted for the same person I voted for but is disappointed in that person. People who didn't vote for the person they are slamming are hard to listen to and learn from because they were already slamming that person from day one and that person would have to perform miracles to convince these people they were right for the job anyways.
    Like I said, I never voted for Clinton either, he did a few things that I was totally against but he also did some really good things and was very good at working with both sides of the asile. Obama is much more "my way or the highway" and has made that clear from day one. I've never seen a president blame the past administration as much as Obama.

    What did he achieve of the top ten items in the video?

    As to the millions that think he's doing fine, there seems to be more that thinks he isn't doing fine:

    Probably a lot of people, from either side. The problem is many don't want to run or they have no chance to get elected.

    Someone who has pro-American core principles, not someone who is an internationalist.
    Someone who understands middle class America, not someone from academia.
    Someone who understands the principles of the Founding Fathers and why they created the Constitution as they did, not someone who sees a document of negative rights. This document was not created 100% perfect, but is a document that gives us a tremendous amount of freedom. The Constitution lays out what the government can do and cannot do. And everything else is left to us. How much more freedom do we need? What he speaks of is some who want to take from producers to give to non-producers.
    Someone who understands the difference of those who are truly in need, not someone who just wants people to relie on big government.

    Does this someone have a name?

    Has anyone ever fufilled each of those qualities? Seems like a large percentage of our presidents graduated from an Ivy League school and not State U.

    It also seems that as long as we are occupying other countries being an internationalist may be a hazard/qualification of the job.

    Why not? Seems as though all they have to do is say how they can do better and they would have a great chance to win, correct?

    Ronald Reagan fit those qualities , but unforunately anyone who might follow in Reagan's footsteps is demonized as being backwood hicks. Just as Reagan himself was demonized by the left 30 years ago.

    Internationalist in the sense of wanting the UN to rule, instead of the US being an independent leader.

    He's going to have to make some drastic changes in the way he does things to make that happen. I'm not sure his ego will allow that, but I hope he does.

    When has Obama wanted "the UN to rule?"

    That, $500 million, and a big ego.

    Ronald Reagan had one of the biggest tax increases in history and the deficit exploded under his leadership. Now, I am a Reagan fan, but he would not win the Republican nomination today. He was was too liberal.

    I've heard that mantra before and it's no more true than Kennedy wouln't get the Democratic nomination today because he was too conservative, being that he cut taxes to stimulate the economy. There might be other reasons they wouldn't get the nomination, but being too liberal/conservative for their current parties isn't one of them.
