    kmt- If the president was so much for small business why did he spend hundreds of billions bailing out the big ones? Why is it that most of the things he is for, Obama Care and Taxing the rich more do nothing but hurt the small buisness owners. He is not for any business. he is only concerned with more government control.

    Its sad because the economy stabilizes when poor folk like us spend all of our money and give it to the rich. If we all started saving, the economy would collapse. Only way to secure your family's future is to ban with other commoners and start your own businesses. SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESSES AND TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR COMMUNITIES!!! This has been the President's message since day 1. Unfortunately, these larger companies have become too big to fail. Because you have a piece of them in your retirement accounts. People, please learn to be self-sufficient and stop supporting the same companies that seek to drive you out of business.

    Islamic extremists in Africa. Where are there not Islamic extremists? The problem will never be fixed because no one will take the steps necessary to fix it. Like roaches, if you leave just a few alive they will multiply. The only way to truly fix the problem is to exterminate all the extremists. No amount of money, negotiations, aid or talk will solve the problem.

    It wont be long before the USA is in the same fix. Millions of people here are out of work and no hope of ever finding a job. Our people are getting desperate. None of us will live long enough to see America become strong. Our president will soon be appointed by the Chinese who now own us. People will come here from China to see the inauguration. The first Chinese president should draw a large crowd.

    Romney was also right on the Chrysler comment, but of course, media will never admit it. Obama is always right.
