    People want quick fixes. It does not work that way. I support Obama, not because he is left-hand, or black or smart, or handsome. I support him because he is making and effort to remedy America’s problems. Give him time.

    The argument will go on over President Obama. Most of the opposition wants him out for two reasons, whether or not they admit to either. 1) They do not like the fact that he is black, and 2) He is a Democrat, and they automatically disagree with anything Democrats propose. There is no question that he, hands down, much more intelligent than his predecessor and that he inherited a huge mess on all fronts from the previous administration. I say please give the guy a chance to prove himself and his party! i am proud is a left- hand like us and also i celebrate my birthday the same date as his!

      I agree with you. People need to get over the fact that he’s black. He is definitely smarter than Bush. He’s helping America get out of the resection. Thank God we have a left-handed president to do it,to. By the way I am left-handed too.

    I’m with you, Laetitia. We sound like two peas in a pod! I also agree that politics should never have entered into this discussion board. We have strayed far from the topic, but I know I’m only stirring the pot of those who want to keep this political issue alive! I prefer to move on.

    • Don says:

      You say that politics shouldn’t enter into this discussion. I believe it’s about Obama, Left Handed PRESIDENT. That has nothing to do with politics? Read my previous post.

  6. Laetitia says:

    I felt absolutely thrilled the !st time I saw Obama signing with his left hand. WHY has politics entered in to matter? The topic is Left Handers who went far in life.

    Like Judy the whole left part of my body is stronger. I lean over to the left- only carried my babies on my left hip. Now it’s become a problem : I’m like the Leaning Tower Of Pisa-to the left, of course.

    I’m certainly not proud to include Obama as a fellow lefty, but there he is, and we can’t do anything about. I’m really tired of the really old “it’s Bush’s fault”. You realize that the President can’t cause the economic situation of America. Who writes the budget? Congress! Who appropriates the budget? Congress! The only control (however minute) is the power of the veto. In Bush’s case (because he had a democrat congress) it was hell if he would have vetoed the budget. The media would have fried him. Looking at the housing failure, who de-regulated Fanny and Freddie? Bubba.

    As far as real lefties, they carry a pocket watch. Sorry, if you girls don’t have pockets.

    Here’s how to determine you dominate eye. Make a triangle of the index finger and thumb of both hands. Place this triangle in what you think is the center of your face. Have a friend look at you straight on. He will see you dominate eye inside the triange.

    • gim says:

      Boy, did you hit the nail on the head! And I’m sure you used your left hand, too! I’m so tired of the double standard bs – thanx for cutting thru it, like a southpaw should (well, some southpaws, anyway)

  8. Judy Isaacson says:

    I agree with Diana. There is no one more left-handed or left-sided than I am. My whole left side is larger and more functional than my right. When I learned to walk, I put my left foot out and dragged the right one up to meet it. I do not write over-handed. I write in the normal way but am totally left handed. OK, all that said, I wear my watch on my right wrist because of what Diana said and also because I usually wear a watch that has to be fastened in some way, either buckled or hooked or something. MUCH easier with the left hand!
