I think we just have to have faith in Mr. Obama. The way he handled the birth certificate issue and then Bin Ladin shut even the Donald up (for a while at least). Now there is a movement to Dump Trump from driving a lead race car or something at one of the big car races, ?Daytona, I don't know. The Donald took up the birther issue and ran with it, and Obama buried him.

Thanks Carol, you are lucky to have that group of friends. I have found a couple of people here that I can talk to, but otherwise, I usually try keep my mouth closed, but it is not an easy thing to do. I do get into "debates" with my relatives, but always end up feeling frustrated, as there is nothing I can say to convince them that Obama isnt a bad guy. Some of my family members are already benefiting from certain provisions of the new healthcare law, but refuse to admit that it has helped them. I'm still trying to convince my neighbors that he is an American. And to think that with all the petty things that were being thrown at him last week with the birth certificate debate, etc., he was busy presiding over these intense meetings to coordinate the plan that finally got Bin Laden---and he never appeared anything but calm and collected!

Welcome to the team, and I so agree with you about being in the south. I live in Texas, and usually don't mention Obama or anything political at work or with my relatives. I have a group of friends who have similar views, and it is nice to be able to talk to them without hearing the fox news rhetoric from them. I really don't understand why they hate the president. His policies in the end help the working people.

Hi, I am new to this team. I am also from Northern Illlinois but relocated to the Gulf Coast recently. Love it here, except when it comes to anything political. I am feeling a lack of diversity in opinion. I live where Fox News seems to be the only source of information for many people. I once heard Obama speak before he was President at the local high school in my district in Illinois and he was a phenomenal communicator!

Welcome! I'm in Northern IL as well. Hubby and I were on our 25th anniversary trip during the election so, we missed seeing President Obama's acceptance speech in person. We voted early and watched from afar. I wish we had been there.

Welcome to the team and sparkpeople. This site does offer a lot of stuff and a ton of interesting people. I think this is a life time site. Not just for weight lose and getting healthy, but a great place to socialize.
I agree I think President Obama could win another term. That would be a great thing then all the opposing people would see his plans take off more and realize what a great President he is. Between him and Michelle they have done so much for our country. I really like that they are looking into other countries health systems and trying to get them working in ours. To bad so many people oppose that idea.

Hi, I am from Northern Illinois, Obama country. We were fortunate enough to be able to see Mr. Obama's acceptance speech in Grant Park with several hundred thousand screaming fans. I think he has done an amazing job in only 2 years with near constant opposition from the right wing nuts. Right now there is no serious challenger to the President. I think he has every chance for a second term. I hope so. And if Obama can, so can I. I am going to make SP work for me. I can do this for the rest of my life, which I will probably have to. This is fun and easy and so far is working great. emoticon
