    This is hard? I believe the actual job of being President of the United States is much harder than just running for it.

    I don't see them being rich as being bad, I see them being rich and complaining as much as they do being bad. Whatever happened to being thankful for what you have?

    Yep, if you look at the White House schedule, you'll see a pretty full docket. Today, the president started with a briefing at 9:00 then flew to several press events until he settled back home at the White House at 11:25. That's a long day with multiple flights, a town hall and a speech, and obviously numerous decisions and briefings along the way.

    All that and they even refuse to give him time-and-a-half over 40. Those presidents, they ought to form a union and stand up for their rights.

    How lucky indeed.

    What's worrying is if he's messing up so much of this, what would he be like running a whole country? Would his wife stand up for him, telling us it's a difficult job?

    I was going to say there's no crying in politics.

    But then I remembered.

    Why does she keep doing this?

    If I could run for president, I definitely would. So in response to "throw your hat in the ring". Give me a billion dollars to campaign and I'll do it no problem.

    Ha ha, they're making such a balls up of this campaign I'm actually beginning to feel sorry for them.

    They really, really need Malcolm Tucker... (If you don't know him his collected wisdom can be found here - warning very funny but very sweary (Possibly NSFW)

    IDK, President's always seem to age prematurely. They go in looking youthful and come out only 4 years or 8 years later looking haggard, grey and tired. All that responsibility and pressure must take its toll on people.

    Her comments are asinine. Of course its hard, otherwise more people would do it.

    Saddens me to see this type of hate in our country. Not entirely sure when high levels of success became a stigma in this country, but we really need to find a way to turn that around.

    Do you really believe that? I don't see this as people hating on the rich, it's hating on how the rules are stacked against the rest of us. I make good money;in fact, I'm in the to 10% of earners. Why should I pay 26% of my income in taxes while he pays about half that rate?

    Having a high level of success isn't the problem. It is the fact that people like Romney have deluted themselves into thinking they can actually understand and even relate to folks whose hardships they have never come close to experiencing.

    I honestly don't believe that there is a stigma against being rich. That's just te conservative spin on it in my opinion. There's a stigma against being a pompous assclown who looks down at others who aren't. Unfortunately, many wealthy people act like they are somehow better than others, and treat others as pawns in their game. Then when they start complaining about how life is soooo hard for them, others want to punch them in the throat.

    I don't care if you make ten dollars or ten million dollars. If you are an egotistical jerk, I will hate you. I don't care if you are unemployed or if you are the lead honcho at MegaCorpInc. If you act like you deserve some sort of respect and admiration solely because you have made money, you will get none from me.

    The rich deserve no more respect or admiration than anyone else who works hard. They've just been lucky enough to fall into a position where more money was available.

    Substitute the word American for rich/wealthy and you have pretty much how most of the world views the USA. :D

    That's BS. There is no stigma against wealth, there is a stigma against wealthy people who still have the audacity to bitch and moan about their wealth and act like VICTIMS. (Is that word familiar?) We're also sick of their constant whining about democrats raising their taxes when they pay less than everyone else. If you're wealthy, enjoy it and don't expect any sympathy from the population when you have to downgrade from a Ferrari to a Porsche...

    Do you have anything else to contribute to this forum other than your anti-American screed?
