    What message does it send when some Democrats are ducking President Obama? – Cafferty File - CNN.com Blogs

    It seems that close ties to Obama are not a good thing for democrats facing election. If you think about it, what has he done for a liberal-minded voter? We stayed in Iraq until RIGHT before the election year, so they aren't too pleased about that. Still in Afghanistan, too. And then there is the conflict we got into in Libya, plus the sending of troops to the Sudan.

    The healthcare bill that was passed was really no good to someone who wanted real radical change in our system. The economy and jobs situation still sucks, too.

    he really has nothing to point to.

    Even internationally, some of the things some liberals were hoping for, such as the lifting of the embargo against Cuba, remains all the same as the day he was inaugurated.

    Didn't the same happen when Clinton was going through bjgate? And W during the WMD mishap?

    Maybe, but with Clinton he himself wasn't facing election and with Bush, at the time of elections there was still thought to be a chance of them being found.

    For the record, I think it is likely Iraq did have WMD's, and just sold them/disposed of them when the invasion seemed inevitable. There were trace quantities of mustard gas found in the Euphrates River, for example.

    This country doesnt want the radical change that some in the left want. They are too dumb to see it though. Majority of Americans are still conservative minded, they are just sick and tired of the same old tired ass bullshit from both parties.

    Most of this country doesn't want the religiously mandated social conservatism, either.
