Obama is an ass. Don't see how he was reelected.
| Guest chapter 1 . 8/18/2012
Well done. I haven't read a fic this funny in a long, long time.

I just felt the need to review and tell you how grateful I am that you wrote this story. I am a conservative teenager going to a mostly liberal high school and every day I have to deal with people being so smug with me about things Obama has gotten through. Sometimes I feel so hopeless and tired trying to deal with them and defend myself and my views day after day. I am so frustrated by how deceptive Obama was coming into presidency. I am so frustrated that he thinks it's acceptable to go around apologizing for things America has done that NEEDED to be done as well as for simply being successful. I feel as though Alfred would feel exactly as you have portrayed him. Angry, tired, frustrated, and betrayed. I know that's certainly how I feel as well as many of my friends and family. I love listening to Glenn Beck. He gives me hope. He recharges me when I'm too tired to keep arguing with the people I deal with. He reminds me that punching them in the face when they shout over me so that I can't make my points will only sink me to their level. I appreciate all he does and the risks he takes to do so. I also appreciate you for writing this story and including the transcript of this part of that particular show. It was one of my favorites. Thank you for writing and posting this. Reading it really helped me and gave me a pick-me-up after a long, hard day. Let's hope that the American people will be able to vote in someone who can fix Obama's mess. It's certainly going to take a long time, because he's done a lot of damage, but I have faith in this country and its people to make things right. God bless America.

I understand that you are pro-conserative and pro-Glenn Beck. But the personification of America- no matter how much of a mush brain he may be in Hetalia stands for both sides of the argument, not just the conservative. And i wouldn't publicly announce that 'America' would like to punch the President in the nose- you might get troubled waters there.
So basically, what I'm trying to get out is that just because you may dislike the President alot- dosn't mean you have to blame every little problem that rears it's ugly head on him. He was just the unlucky guy who inherited the crap Bush started.
I am trying not to sound to pro-Obama here. And I don't want any hurt feelings- so sorry if I offended you.

| Kael Hyun chapter 1 . 5/1/2010
Good Fic, if you ever plan on making more like this I recommend: Watch Glenn beck . com. Hopefully you do one based on the Founders Friday segment that Glenn is starting (He did a great first one yesterday on Samuel Addams

i believe aou are pretty based and have a good live without having to fear to get ill or something...
how can you despice it so much...you say in your story that it is the right of the people to live and get hospital care but at the same you are spitting on the health ensurence...
you should remember that americas wealth is rather onesided and alot of people are poor and cant pay the hospitals
by the way other nations manage too...
and for your last part with fighting and such...
hitler too told the people only what they wanted to hear...like the very person america seems to like so much...

SoI already reviewed, but I was curious as to how this story would be recieved and came back to check the reveiws...and found quite a few things I was majorly disagreed on. especially "-"'s review.
1- Like what? Increase the national debt? I'm sorry, Obama's really not one to make decisions, and hasn't really done anything. He's too concerned with hi popularity to actually make decisions. Have you seen the movie "Citizen Kane"? Obama's just like Kane.
2-...It sounds liek you're justifying what they did. What they did was wrong. The method they used to get this bill through was just plain corrupt and disgusting. It's something you'd expect to find in a third world nation, not america.
3-4; You have a point. America wouldn't be so biased, and violence is a bad thing...
...I'm sorry, but have you seen the national budget! Where did you get the idea that social security will not be an issue! It's probably going to bankrupt this nation, and it's not an issue! And social security, like most of FDR's actions, was doomed as a failure from the start. On social security, we should have listened to Bush. He honesly had the best idea anyone's ever had as how to deal with social security...but we were too pissed off to care. And now obama, too worried about losing the support of the elderly, won't touch it.
Again, I applaud you for having the guts to write a conservative fic. while i do wish it was a little less biased, it's the first fic concerning america and healthcare that isn't totally liberally biased, so it's a nice change.
| B. Tommorrow chapter 1 . 4/4/2010
So yeah, your summary caught my attention. And I read your story, admittedly I don't really know much about this issue, which is really one of the reasons I read this in the first place. But um... some of the things you wrote in here, just caught me as... well... wrong.
I definately agree that Obama didn't turn out to be the shining knight that a lot of people were hoping for. But I mean, expectations in him should never have been so high, afterall he was inheiriting a bit of a mess off of Bush. And that is just refering to Afghanistan/Iraq and the economy.
But why shouldn't Obama be allowed to be happy that his bill got passed? And since when has 250$ been barely scraping by? I mean, that's a lot of zeroes. Also isn't America suppose to represent the views of all of his citizens? The view point shown here is far too biased to be the views of all of his people. As a lot of other reviews have mentioned, he'd be more conflicted. Because there would be a porportion of the population, however small or large, that would support the passing of this bill. Alfred would have to represent them as well. Alfred wouldn't just listen to one side of the arguement, and Glenn Beck is definately only showing one side of the arguement and I can't believe that all of America is actually that biased. So um... sorry.
Though I suppose that wouldn't be the case if Obama's little theory were true. Which would be so cool! I mean think about, so like Alfred is all Conservative America and than there is like a little kid Liberal America running around. You could totally do an entire series on that! They could like meet, and then Alfred would be like, oh damn, but not be able to kill the boy, because he's like, a hero! And then the boy could be all like sute, and little America like, from like, you know, how England found him. But they'd be never able to agree on anything, it would be all, Prussia/Germany style relationship. Ah ha, sorry, I just thought that Obama's idea was really neat... no dah. I apologize for my long, and poorly informed review. I hope you can find it within your heart to forgive me.

In my laughing at you, my keyboard smashing reviewed early. Whoopsie
Anywho, my brother got a brand new car for LESS then my used one doing CAHS FOR CLUNKERS! Ha ha, you listen to everything Glenn Beck says, huh? That's weird, considering he always says stuff like, "I'm not a -insert noun-, BUT I KNOW MORE THAN YOU !"
| LOL-ING FOREVER chapter 1 . 4/4/2010
Seriously, SO FUNNY! Especially this:
"Even better, $250,0 dollars wasn't even a lot of money. The man would be scraping by in profits rather than making a genuine profit."
Are you serious? $250,0 is plenty to get by, even after being taxed! I mean, if you're right then I don't know how my father manages his business, ESPECIALLY for all my 21 years of life! He doesn't make nearly that much and yet all three of us kids have cars and everything! I'll do you one better: we got my younger brother's BRAND NEW

1.) A president doesn't have the right to be happy that a bill he's been working on for months finally passed? What’s he supposed to do? You probably only see it as smug since you didn’t like the bill. I don’t remember him saying much about it, honestly, except what was necessary. He has other things to do.
2.) If I'm not mistaken, representatives from the states voted for this bill to pass and it was roughly 50/51. These representatives were elected by the people, right? Therefore, that would mean that at a LEAST half of the people wanted the bill as that is how our system works. And if your counter argument would be that the democrats used all of this “back door” crap and acted behind our backs then mine would be that are you so ignorant to think that NO government does that? Anyway, just because you say you’re the majority doesn’t mean you are. Not to mention that many republicans have stepped down from “Kill the Bill” lately, due to the immediate effects showing to be good. But if you still think you’re the majority it’s probably because of the media. They only show the angry people, you do realize this, right? They make better TV.
3.) WHY do you think America only stands for YOUR opinions? I saw the summaries of your other fics and all you seem to do is preach about how Obama sucks and America hates him. How can he when he represents ALL of the American people, even if they are the minority?
4.) Why are you so violent? I mean, MY GOD, I didn’t like Bush but I never had thoughts about physically hurting him. That’s flat out crazy and I pity you in that you have so much negativity running through yourself.
Seriously, this isn't a new thing in the government. How do you think social security went down? The same, complete with calling the president socialist and all the other crazy stuff. It’ll blow over and I highly doubt that it will be an issue for the next election.
| LupinandHarry chapter 1 . 4/4/2010
I think that Alfred would be a less angry with the issue, and more split on the idea, as other have said.
Still, I give you kudos for using Beck. He's great, I really admire him.
| sigh chapter 1 . 4/4/2010
No offence ment, but America/Alfred IS the embodyment of his people, then he would be split on this issue. Despite what Fox news or Glen Beck may say, overall across our country views on this issue are split. Some liberals who don't like the bill don't like because they think it does enough. Fox news and Glen Beck only express the conservative view on this issue. I'm tired of people saying only half the county's opinion on this issue counts on this issue.
| Lady Scribetracker chapter 1 . 4/4/2010
I'm not so sure how I feel about this fic, as I always imagine Alfred being conflicted about his political standings.
That being said, do you know how much of a relief it is to NOT have to read a fic where Alfred is agreeing with his boss and dissing the old boss? Really, agreeing with the President of the United States of America is optional, not a requirement!
Okay, rant is done. Although I consider Glenn Beck to be a conservative, I believe he's stated that he dislikes both political parties, but dislikes the conservatives less.
Well, I felt that I needed to thank you for, at the very least, having the guts to say that America can disagree with his boss. So thank you.
