Absolutely Sparta, Why is he talking about this in relation to the 2012 elections and not what he's going to do NOW?... He's President! He should be changing things NOW, not waiting until maybe he's reelected...

Dumbasses both of you. Clearly you don't know how the American political system works. Motions have to pass through the Senate and the House of Representatives before the President can sign them into law. Look how bad the Republicans have been in the democratic process. The Democrats have been cowards in how they have engaged with the issues. However, certainly given the alternatives, Obama is the best hope for America that it has had in the last 50 years. One point I will agree on - money needs to be taken out of politics.

He just wants your vote. He's fake. Very clever guy, is a great orator but look at what he has done. Once he has been voted back in he will betray you just as he has done during his first term. He serves the elite. Don't be a fool, All polititions have they'r paymasters.

Latest comment: what's funny is that in Britain, we don't tend to talk about religion and homosexuality - but we cant even talk about the top 1% either. I suppose you cant have it all!

Racists republicans are too naive to vote in their best self-interests. We won't see change until someone starts assassinating Grover Norquist and the elites funding his corruption of our congressmen.
