2016: Obama's America

Personally I'm not much into political based documentaries but this film seems to be garnering as much attention as anything Michael Moore has put out. What's your opinion on the politics of the film? The author? How the film itself was done and looks?

I don’t know what I’d do if I were President Obama. Because of some important factors, I’m not yet sure the Russians are simply grabbing territory.

1. The current leaders in Ukraine deposed a legally elected government, and I’m don’t like aiding radical power-grabbers.

2. Russians, at 60%, are a majority in the Crimea.

3. The Crimea was part of Russia until 1954, when Nikita Khruschev, unilaterally and without consulting people living in the Crimea, declared it part of the Ukraine.

My idea of rational foreign policy doesn’t include jumping in a river without considering how treacherous the waters are.

I would hope our president, republican or not, would lead from strength, not from behind as obama does. Strength prevents war. I hate war.

Sorry, I should have said 38% approval, not 33%.

Whether obama's influence is unique or not, is not the point. It can affect the next two elections. He is here now. Nothing Bush can do can affect us.

If obama allows Russia to be more powerful, militarily, than the USA it could be very bad for us. Right now Putin has military equipment at Cuba. 90 miles from Key West.

Only 33 per cent of Americans today approve of obama's handling of foreign policy.

While the general public might not care about Ukraine that much, I think we should try to stay involved a little. Putin is pulling the old, "we are protecting nationals" spiel that echos the Nazi in reference to the ethnic Germans in Czechoslovakia prior to WWII.

The EU should take the point position though and not the US. If Putin would take the Ukraine, or even just the valuable Crimea area, what's to say he wouldn't continue?

"Too bad he and the media didn't listen to Palin and Romney about Russia."

Why? Nothing would be really different. The EU would still be acting the way it is now and the American people wouldn't care anymore than they already do about a nation they probably couldn't find on an unmarked map.

"What does obama being shunned by candidates have to do with Bush, Kendall?"

Hmmm, as I said it could have something to do that it happened to Bush as well, meaning it's not unique.

If you haven't took notice in your life, most 2nd term Presidents who are not exactly popular, are not usually sought out by Congress men and women running for office.

Many Republicans didn't want to be seen with Bush toward the end of his term. Many Dems don't want to be seen with Obama. If I remember correctly, Al Gore stayed away from Clinton in the last year of that presidency.

So the point Ithink is that the Dems staying away from Obama is no unique at all.

What does obama being shunned by candidates have to do with Bush, Kendall? Talking about George Washington would be just as relevant.

Bush is gone. All this mess now is obama's. Too bad he and the media didn't listen to Palin and Romney about Russia.

"To us the people,.."

The people are slow of mind and lacking in patience or will power. The people are like a frog in a pot of water that is slowly warming up. It won't hop out of the pot as it warms to a boil because it gets used to the slow warm up and cannot see what is happening to itself.

"Democrats running for office are hiding from him."

Hardly surprising, the Republicans did it to Bush in his 2nd term. Congressional Republicans are as loyal as any Congressional Democrat to the President.

“Why do I need to be told daily, over and over, what some dumb sports star is doing in his bedroom? Truly, I don't want to know.”

Ah, Ithink. You’ve captured my sentiments. I refuse to develop an appetite for the national diet of salacious stories.

That’s why I prefer print news to TV. It’s easier to avoid trivial stories. With print, we don’t have to wait for the next story; we get to move on when we, not some NYC programmer, decide.

Climate change is kept on the front pages by the media and the democrats. To us the people, it always comes in last in the polls, in importance..No one I know wakes up in the morning and cries over the eternally changing climate.

Instead of issues important to us all, like improving the economy, we are blasted every day with special interest concerns that do not have any effect on the major problems of our country. First they tell us to stay out of their bedroom and then they shove us in it. I would love to stay out. Why do I need to be told daily, over and over, what some dumb sports star is doing in his bedroom? Truly, I don't want to know.

Controlling our minds and our money is the only objective I see coming from this administration and the media.

Yup, myth. Insurance lobbies' basically got what they wanted, when they wrote the ACA.

Turley is a democrat who voted for obama. He is now extremely worried about obama's actions. Hardly a right wing type. Funny how you know nothings still try to support obama, the failure. Democrats running for office are hiding from him.

Look at his record, and squirm. His majesty, obama, and his pen. He changes laws. Unlawfully, of course.

Little people try to make themselves more important by tearing down a successful professional person like Megyn Kelly. Obama tears down himself, on the otherhand.

J Turley didn't seem to worry about his credibilty being hurt by being on her show last night. Neither did the other distinguished guests.

Thinking people are more worried about having a president who acts like a king.

Ithink, you probably could vastly raise your creditability if you were to just quit reveling your source of information. Such as Megan Kelly, fox news, etc.

Posted 227 days ago.

Meghan kelly is really lowering the boom on obama's lawlessness tonight. Hopefully the right people will take action.

Ithink...franky as much as i like him...Judge Napolitano is as about as useful to me as a wet piece of bread while making a sandwich. i don't need someone who is a judge to tell me that what some is doing is unconstitutional...i need someone that knows the law to do something about it. should he not know any recourse against his accusation of infraction? apathy on the part of the citizens and inaction by both houses is indicative of either laziness, approval or both. Kendall78 is correct.

shhhhh...speaking in a whisper...they are afraid that they will be called the dreaded "r" word if they protest. you know "racist'. as elmer fudd would say "be very quiet" when being critical of the president. the fear that exists surrounding any criticism of this president seems to be on track to setting a precedence which may carry over to any future non-traditional president. Kim Jong Un would be proud.

Only a liberal would think that laziness and approval are synonyms.
