Since I am a Canadian and not qualified to make a comment, I will say that since Obama is your President, you folks should support him on all issues, as long as he is your President. You voted for him, now he needs your support. Isn't that how it is supposed to work? If you don't like his issues, then you vote for someone else you can support.
I don't like the man personally, I think he was all blunderbuss and no fire, and I think for the most part he has let you down, but while he is still in office, you folks need to support him. You guys hired him for the job.

Supporting Obama means supporting Wall Street's financial policy,UHC's health care policy and George Bush's foreign policy. He can crawl up Lloyd Blankfein's ass to make his next speech.

I'm going with most issues. I don't want to blindly say all issues without evaluating them first.

I think that most white people, want obama to fell. so they can blame it on the black man. his on party is his biggest problem. white people ganging up to protest a black man is not a new idea. only difference they dogs and clan members in white.

I find myself in easy agreement with BHO on most issues. But there are glaring exceptions: Afghanistan being a major one.

I think that Obama needs the most support when faced with obstructionist actions undertaken by the GOP and their conservative misinformation machine. The Democrats lack an adequate structure to respond to the GOP garbage and will end up losing to the hordes of ignorant tea party sheep.

I think that the only way to truly evaluate any politician is on an issue by issue basis.
When I put this up, it was a trick question, intended to make a point. In my opinion, a patriot supports whatever is the best policy for the country regardless of the source from which that policy arises. The only way that this can be done is to base support on an issue by issue basis.
Overall, I find myself supporting more of Obama’s policies than I oppose. Overall, I find myself opposing virtually all GOP policies. I think most of us agree on that. However, when we believe that Obama is wrong about an issue, isn’t it our patriotic duty to oppose him on that issue, even though we support him overall?
Kudos to Otis. You nailed it, my friend.
