    We are getting just what we deserve with Obummer. I do NOT approve. He is leadind this nation to ruins.

  • aaa

    Lets see, he has done nothing but campaign. This is what happens when you elect a narssisitic charismatic leader. Oh I am wrong about one thing, he passed obamacare. That speaks for itself.

  • Uncle Thomas

    These posts are entirely too harsh! We are in an era where everyone is a winner, everyone gets a ribbon, we all need to feel good,…
    I give our president a D-, not an F…too harsh :)

  • robrtl

    do any of these polls check for literacy, knowledge or is the lohan-kardisian axis only represented

    • Uncle Thomas

      robrtl may i borrow your term “lohan-kardisian axis” in future posts?


    In the middle of a red state, your asking the sour losers of the tea party what they think of obama? you need to ask people on the street, not the nut jobs that are on here all the time complaining about every thing onhana does or didn’t do. These nuts will never be happy untill the 1 % percent completly own their a$$’s. there are few people like me on here just because we are on a mission to drain their fox news water logged brains .Obama hasn’t done anything worst then bush ,but they were silent because it was their man. Now they want to forget bush was even the president, just like you don’t even here romney name anymore,I guess they didn’t realy believe in him in the first place

      Your grammar proves the lack of literacy / knowledge of Oboma supporters!
      Do you know the difference between “your” and “you’re” as in “you are asking….”
      “does or didn’t”?
      “hasn’t done anything worst…” How about worse?
      Using “it” to refer to a person? Maybe that was intentional.
      Is there a difference between “here” (as in location) or “hear” (as in the use of your ears)

        Yup Money you showed American that you can can write a sentence better than him good for you. But didn’t really debate his argument, guess it is easier to be a schoolyard bully than rebut his argument about the bias of the polling a deep red area of the country.

        • Money

          Point well taken! I couldn’t get past the grammar to debate anything!

          The point of my post is that American implies those who don’t approve of Oboma’s performance are not too (or is it to? or maybe two?) smart. American’s grammar mistakes are taught in about the third grade.

          The only point I could find was polling a red state….. Yep, that’s where we live and that’s the target audience of HAYSPOST!

          Those that know me will confirm I’m a “nut” but I am a happy one! My investments have done well despite Oboma. I’m not really a big TEA Party fan though.

          • AMERICAN

            well he$$, you should be a school teacher with your perfect grammar instead your a dicky. I meant that to be a 4 letter word

      • dan

        “Oboma”? I am not familiar with that name. You also have some spacing and punctuation issues to address.

        • AMERICAN

          you forgot to go after gus’s comment up at the top. What is a obummer? . poor grammar is ok if your a conservative?

  • http://none Slippy

    Money doesn’t need to… American’s a rambling, incoherent tirade. The article makes no mention of polling “deep red area” — Rasmussen’s poll was nationwide. And Kansas wasn’t exactly a Romney lock — 60-40 split if I remember right. There are plenty of people who voted for Obama who are now having serious buyer’s remorse. And anyone whose understanding of economics beyond “there’s still money on my SNAP card” knows that the Bush team was far beyond the current administration in setting non-destructive economic policy. (Don’t believe the line that ‘the President runs the economy’ – he doesn’t, but policies have a helluva lot to do with how it responds and thrives, or doesn’t).

    In 8 years bush raised the debt 7 trillion dollars. In 5 years Obama has raised the debt to 8 trillion and he still has over 3 years left. I don’t care about the spelling and grammar comments I’m worried about numbers and how that’s going to affect all of us more than a spelling correction. Obama needs to go !
