    Things must change President Obama, the very people who voted for you on the “Not touching” Medicare, Medicaid, Seniors Programs" Meals on Wheels" and “Children’s School Programs” for one meal a day! We believed in you! Please don’t let your self and the whole country down.

    Obama has done nothing but pander to the same people he claims to be so angry at.Name one progressive policy that he’s shown any leadership on and I’ll apologise and shut up.Don’t say health care because what we got was health insurance.Mandatory health insurance.Guantanamo?More lip service and if there’s one thing Obama has proven it’s that lip service is worth what you pay for it.His legacy?Upping the bad stuff GW pushed on us.Death lists.Drug busts.He changed nothing and only proved that the republican party are all racists.I think we already knew that.
