If I want a storyteller...I'll go to a literary fair! Instead, for a POTUS I want a man of stellar integrity, effective leadership & management skills, an awesome ability to bring opposing politicians together to achieve a consensus for the betterment of the American people & their lives (and I'm not talking "beer summits" either), someone who can be trusted to tell the truth, along with a man who can admit when he's made mistakes and correct them even if it has to work contrary to the agenda of his base and a man who's truly an inspirational role model. Oh, and a fella who's truly up to the job!

Isn't this amazing that the previous administration never admitted to any mistakes, even after missing big on fighting terror before and after 9/11, even after starting two for-profit wars that resulted in many deaths and injuries and lot of waste, even after putting the last nail in our economy's coffin, even after outing CIA agents, and on and on? With the exception of Gen. Powell, non of the main players in the previous admin have admitted to any mistake even on the proven to be made up Iraq WMD or the ridiculous Mission Accomplished stunt. NOW CONTRAST this with Mr. Obama's apologetic stance on even something that he should be very proud of, which is being more concerned about substance at these difficult times than fighting the political hot air from the right. But NO, he manages to turn even this into a weakness for his admin by sounding regretful. If it was me, I would first fire all my PR/re-election staff and then think about how I could project a bit more confidence.

I love ya, President Obama and I am going to vote for you, but I'm afraid there are a lot of old pasty white folks - glued to their Faux News or listening to Glen Blechhh blubber, cry and grandstand - who already think you've told too many stories as it is!

(Some) ppl have conveniently forgotten that we had any problems before Obama was pres. After he got bin laden, clinton said he & the 2 gbs had failed 2 get him, that's right-Clinton, GB & GWB failed. GWB left a HUGE mess when Obama but no one mentions that. I don't like everything Obama's done, but I don't blame him for everything that's wrong! Has anyone even gone bk 5 yrs 2 see what economists said -or better yet do it themselves? Nope, let's just blame this guy. Happens every time....

Try telling the millions of Americans who have lost their jobs, the millions of Americans who have lost their homes, and the millions now living in poverty that their lives would have been better if Obummer could have told a better story.
This is the saddest excuse for a president in the history of our nation.

How about telling the American people the truth, rather than a story!
