    @3 ChrisR...
    I, as well as millions of other Americans, hope and pray that you are correct! Obuma is a complete misfit and arrogant ass.
    Good riddance to bad rubbish!

    @5 Idlehands....
    Unfortunately, in most areas probably not. But, I would hope that Romney would treat our REAL friends and allies in the world, such as the UK, with the respect they deserve. And I don't think Romney will be hell-bent on turning the US into the Socialist Utopia that Obuma envisions.

    Most politicians are nothing more than self-serving bastards as demonstrated by Obuma, CFK, her son His Fatness and all of the others of their ilk. A pox on them all.

    We remember obarmy jokes,
    Interestingly very few laugh,
    But we suspect that the American people will have the last laugh, on this fool,

    And if this comes true,
    It may well be the biggest setback for CFK sine she was agonized by some .

    Obama doesn't stink nor smell, AND he is getting re-elected :) 4-5 years more of USA saying “I'll pass on this one...” :)

    No, I think you all have it wrong. CFK is brilliant!
    China will be “invited” to invade Argentine Patagonia to “assist” CFK's government to develop the oil and gas YPF shale reserves, and insure that they get their shipments of production as promised. Argentina will receive an increase of Chinese exports, such as automobiles, busses, tractors and trucks in violation of Mercosur agreements, but will arrive anyway as bilateral “barter agreements” which will economically harm Uruguay and infuriate Brazil.
    Maximo will have no problem financing his upcoming presidential campaign.
    Residents of Buenos Aires will start to be seen wearing pins with pictures of Nestor, Cristina, and eventually Maximo, on their lapels...

    What is China exporting to Uruguay to this day (Uruguay being a founder member of the Mercosur)
    The yanqui is right, maybe we should sign a FTA with USA; we export GUSANOS, and import peace and quiet, no taxes involved :)

    There is nothing more pathetic than an extremely self-centered narcissist, except one that's also mentally challenged.

    Very disturbed and unstable, he’s obviously extremely sensitive to rejection - implied, perceived or real from others and may react with displays of aggression, threats or temper tantrums when denied.

    Sorry to all you American's out there but I think that this is a case of not who you like the most but whon you dislike the least.

    Look, if I gave you a bucket with 2 turds in it and asked you to pick the best one, what you've got there is still a nice looking turd, right?

    I know the british can't talk either, Gordon Brown followed by David Cameron and his little b*tch, Nick Clegg. Oh the comedy just keeps on coming.

    Me personally, I quite like Obama, I think that he has been good for America, but then again I haven't had to live under his policies for 4 years, and anyway, that's just my opinion.

    Laugh while you can, Obama. Your time runs short. Everyone is sick of your betrayals, and gaffes. “Maldives”.. haha. What an idiot. Not to mention, your healthcare and interference in Arizona immigration law will probably be shut down by the SCOTUS in the coming days. Obama is like the lovechild of Jimmie Carter and Oprah Winfrey.

    That's a wonderful analogy (two turds in a bucket) of what a pickle we Americans are in at this juncture in our History. Our controlled choices for President.
    I disagree with your assessment of Obuma. In my opinion he is an unmitigated disaster; probably the worst President in our history. Also, just my opinion.

    @16 Stefan...
    Your analogy is priceless, perfect: “the love child of Jimmie Carter and Oprah Winfrey.” :) :) :) :) LOL LOL LOL

    As these so called turds, arise from its human hosts,
    Are they entitled to rights, as in human?
    Justa joka,
    But in reality, we think Obama is not the friend of the british, he still has a grudge,
    Others may deny it. But it happens to be true,
    As like all leaders of government, he will try to keep his personal opinions away from front line politicts,
    Remember this, he would like nothing more that to instigate Americas authority over OAS, in such as leading the Americas, as one unit,
    But he has a thorn in the works, called the Falklands, backed up by the British, his simple choice, is declare for British, [as he should do]
    Or declare for [South America] and this would damage Americas credibility,
    Or sit on the fence,
    [He sits on the fence] thus insulting both sides,
    But just for a moment, let’s ask Argentina and Britain, in reverse rolls,
    Would you back me up, no matter what?
    Would you declare for us, and help to defend us, and send your military to die along side or ours, under the guise of democracy or to defend against terrorisms.
    Argentina will say what ?????????? you choose for them
    The British on the other hand will say [yes] and declare for the Americans, right or wrong; this has happened and is still happening,
    Argentina on the other hand has stated that they and others do not like the USA .in part.
    Obama should declare for us, or go under,
    Just my opinion,

    @18 briton....
    Of, course you are right, briton. Obuma is no friend of our staunchest ally, Great Britain. Remember, the first thing he did when he moved into the White House was to grab the bust of Sir Winston, which was a gift to the American People from the British People, and return it to the British Embassy. That action was no more than a calculated insult to the British People. Millions of Americans were outraged by that action.

    Oh, how I wish that we still had real leaders such as Maggie Thacther and Ronny Reagan. There would be no doubt what would happen if CFK made a move against the brave people of the Falkland Islands. (there are no Malvinas!)
