"the GOP is stuck with "outlaws" like Cruz,Paul,and Cantnor who have stopped Washington from performing it's duties for the American people!"
Cruz, Paul and Cantor stopped them??? You got that wrong! The ONLY person STOPPING the democrat controlled SENATE from doing it's duty to the American people is HARRY REID!!!! And only a bold-faced prevaricator could say that's not a fact.

Who doesn't know poll results are based on who you poll. 70% will say the president lied if you call 20 people in a conservative region. If you call 20% in a liberal area 80% will say he misspoke or was not fully informed. Polls are only as good as the pollster. He had nothing to gain by lying and he is smart enough to know that it would be political suicide. His political advisers were able to win two national elections, it is unlikely they would allow dissemination of material that would destroy his legacy. IF, Hillary wins and healthcare is fixed, she will receive the credit for an overhaul she has wanted for decades. Something to think about.

Capricorn1: Yes, I'm sure President Obama or anyone wants to get in front of ALL America and lie. You know if you thought something was going to work smoothly but, turned out it didn't work quite the way you wanted and you told friends it will work would you be a liar just the way you speak of our President or you just hope people just thought you made a mistake thinking the "ACA" website was setup correctly, that insurance companies would tell people their policies were "junk" (pay a lot for little coverage) and now have to meet the standards of the "ACA" when they cancelled their policies. I agree the "ACA" needs to get the bugs out,like anything else that covers millions of people but, in your world everything is perfect. What is your problem with everyone having health coverage? I'm sure you will come back with the illegals will get it to but, one way or another you will pay for their emergency room visit. I'm done!
Mercury, you have every right to your opinion regarding this president, but the bottom line is it still doesn't explain away the deception he used on the American people in order to get what he wanted. And yes, who knows what the result of the last election would have been if this information was made public prior to the election. He stood in front of the cameras dozens of times and blatantly lied. Regardless of the accomplishments you feel he has made, he has just given Americans more reason not to trust him or their government. It should also give everyone pause as to what else has been covered up and lied about. Those so called scandals in the past suddenly don't seem so unbelievable.

You know you're right. It's just hard for me to hear some of the people that live in the greatest country on this planet to muck,belittle and try as hard as they can to discredit one of the greatest President this country has ever had putting a stop to TWO wars,avoiding a war with Syria, and now telling and getting an agreement from Iran to stop the nuclear program they had going.Here is a little more stock market is back up, housing is on the upside, unemployment has gone down and so on we go. Ok, now let me hear about, he wasn't born an American, he's not a Christian,he never went to Harvard,he's forcing people to have HEALTHCARE (I'm guess this has something to do with this poll),he doesn't salute the flag and so on we go. Ok, Let it fly!I'm done.

Mercury, all of your comments have absolutely nothing to do with this poll. You, like many liberals use deflection to take the spotlight off what's really going on with this legislation. You have absolutely no justification for the lies told to the American people by this administration regarding this legislation and other incidents in the past so you deflect to George Bush, the Tea Party and whatever other subject in a attempt to explain away reality. There is no other possible explanation except selection C and you have no way to refute that.
Sun-Gazette: How about a new poll like SPORTS!

hopeforfuture: Unbelievable,you really believe that President Obama doesn't want compromise? Again I say that the GOP should be sued for stealing Nancy Reagan"s slogan "JUST SAY NO"! That's all the GOP (aka) T.P.is saying, NO to everything President Obama puts on the table. Again, UNBELIEVABLE!

Mercury2- If the left would have compromised this whole mess could have been avoided. Those like Cruz stood up for those they represented. The left never wants to compromise. One year they wanted to wait one year. It is going to take that long to get the web site working.
You're like my ex-wife, you don't forget anything doesn't matter if it was 20 years ago! What the he*l does this Rev. Wright have to do with healthcare? -Mercury
Read my comment again. I was answering your question regarding Obama wanting to destroy the country. And as far as Reverend Wright goes, my parish priest that I had growing up had a profound impact on me and my beliefs that I will hold true the rest of my life. That's what spiritual leaders do, they guide you in your beliefs. Oh and btw, Obama was a parishioner of Wright's parish until 2008, not 20 years ago.

Talking about 'Impeachment",how'd we miss G.W. Bush,two unnecessary wars (I don't want to mention bodybags),he "tanked" the economy,unemployment went up big time, the "market" dropped like a rock and so on. Mercury
If you keep bring up the past nothing is going to get done in the future! -Mercury
Need I say more?
Leaningright:So what you're saying is we need to keep wars going,stockmarket needs to go back to 6,000 and everyone that lose money on their 401k retirement plan back in 2007-08 but, have gained everything back as the stockmarket has set a new high which I'm only guessing people have got their loses back and are now making money, these are what you want? If President Obama was such a bad,do nothing President how did he get reelected? My opinion is if G.W. would have had another term we would be sharing a can of Spam! As far as the "red line" with Syria I think the President did outstanding, no boots on the ground, no body bags and the big one NO WAR!

Capricorn1: You're like my ex-wife, you don't forget anything doesn't matter if it was 20 years ago! What the he*l does this Rev. Wright have to do with healthcare? Start acting like an American with COMMONSENSE! If you keep bring up the past nothing is going to get done in the future!
hopeforfuture: Again you avoid answering my questions.If only more of the GOP was like Gov. Christie Washington would run a lot better but, the GOP is stuck with "outlaws" like Cruz,Paul,and Cantnor who have stopped Washington from performing it's duties for the American people! They want to take the President down but, they want to sink the ship with everyone aboard and this is what is wrong with Washington not President Obama. Commonsense will win in the end and you can take that to the bank!

Somebody PLEASE start proofing these poll questions. "...repeated publicly promised..." Seriously? Is the Sun Gazette outsourcing their writing assignments to local elementary schools?!

A more accurate answer would be " He said the govt would not prevent continuation of existing policies, but all new insurance must have basic coverage including no denial for pre-existing conditions, no cancellation for illness, and limits to out-of-pocket expenses.
Mercury2 Hope and Change. Did he ever say what that hope was? and Change he is indeed changing this country but what the outcome is only history will tell. The world sees that he has lied and and can not be trusted. We are sinking as a respected leader of the FREE world. Who will be there to pick up the pieces? Russia maybe China.

Chas56, what is not fair about this poll? A and B are both excuses I have heard from liberals when trying to explain away the deception of this administration. I think this is one of the more balanced polls that the SG has done.

SunGazette - will you ever have a "fair and balanced" choice that does not reflect negatively on our president? A little respect would promote civil discussions instead of throwing crap at each other. But I suppose that doesn't sell papers.

MECURY2 I don't believe Obama is out to "destroy the country". But I do believe Reverend Wright had a profound negative effect on the way Obama views this country. There's no way he could sit there listening to Wright's hateful anti-American rants for 20 years and it not have an effect. I find it curious that once it became public where Obama chose to worship throughout his life, suddenly he chooses to rarely attend any services at all. It makes it appear like that is the only place of worship that he truly believed in and that's troubling.

Merc- GW Bush, I would take him back in a heart beat over what we have now. When a red line was drawn,(which it wasnt, he wasnt that stupid) other world leaders knew what it meant. Now, not so much, Obama is an international weakling.Putin laughs, Assahd laughs, Iran Laughs.
79% says he is a lier Merc, What can you say about that?

Merc- I do not know why he wants to destroy our country but he sure is doing a great job at dividing this great country. I also do not know what he gains by doing it other than making all Democrats and Liberals look really bad Merc.
Leaningright:No, We can't leave G.W. out of this conversation, I'm like you I would like to forget about him to but,the record shows what happen during his terms in office and all you have to do is read it,very simple and you or me can't change those FACTS. And I'll ask you again, why is President Obama trying to destroy our country? Just give me and all the Obama haters out there a reason. And also what does he gain by doing it? You have a pattern that you go to another subject and avoid the questions.
