    Well, when you consider (which you probably do not, as it reflects Americans true overall opinions) that President Obama’s current approval rating is about 46% (not as good as I am sure he would want), but the approval rating of the Republican led House of Representatives is only some 9% (which makes President Obama’s approval rating some 5 times as high as the Republicans), then even if he is only using his brain as your beloved Lisa is saying, then he is using far more of his considerable intelligence than either Lisa or you are. Or is that kind of simple mathematics beyond your understanding??

    The Republican noise machine and forum trolls keep harping on Obama’s vacations. If any of them cared in the slightest of the facts, they’d know that Obama has taken less vacation time than other Presidents, including G W Bush.

    Lisa, you give Mr. Obama too much credit. He doesn’t care about jobs, energy, etc. that much.

    Speaking of brains, Lisa, “a clear majority believe the sale of guns to people on the terrorist watch list is banned. Another 29 percent say they don’t know. Such sales are NOT banned, and the Government Accountability Office has reported that in 2010 alone 247 people on the terrorist watch list passed a background check and legally purchased guns.”

    So maybe the Pres is onto something: We the People need to employ more brain power, eh?

    Why compare with Bush? Bush was horrible. We didn’t want a “Slightly better than Bush.” We wanted a JFK or a Ike. Or even a Reagan..

    This guy was supposed to know how to fix everything. Where are the results? All hot air..

    Just another conservative’s wish list. That Obama is as they perceive him.

    Perfect description of the average Politician.
    Where’s the joke?

    I find it interesting that everything, for twelve years, was George Bush’s fault. Now that we have Obama, everything is the fault of the House of Representatives. Just a thought.

    It absolutely is easy. Where the vacations were taken speaks volumes. It doesn’t say Hawaii or Martha’s Vinyard. Learn to read between the lines, no matter what your politics are!

    @Robert Landers

    “….House of Representatives is only some 9%”

    Are you sure that that isn’t a Congressional approval rating instead of just a House of Representatives rating?

    Genius analysis, Lisa!
    5 years of Evidence certainly points to the narcissistic thinking by Obama, and the number of vacations proves it, along with the elite lifestyle in the White House and the eternal campaigning instead of the expected duty of the hard work in actual governing and enforcing congress’ laws.

    His idea to spend federal money we do not have, to “study the human brain” is IMO alarming….along with the feds studying how animals think….isn’t that an indication of “scientists” doing tortures to the subjects “studied”?
    -
    Also IMO from the Prez on down, officials newly elected should be required to undergo lie detector tests, on file in the FOI department! With regular update tests!

    I’m sure the Obamas will miss those great vacations. Not only do they get to go to great spots like Rio de Janeiro, Hawaii and the Rockys, they get to kick everyone out and have they tourist spots for themselves for security reasons. All at taxpayers expense. No wonder vacation is such a big part of the thoughts of Obama.

    The other version would show more compassion for others and logic. O knows nothing about those qualities.
