    Maybe so, but not to his extent.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Perhaps you can pick some key policy areas in which Barrack Obama has been an improvement.

    I said he can't be worse than Bush. I never said he was better. However, I would say his foreign policy direction is better than Bush's.

    For another thread, but Jeffereson sucked as President. As did Madison. John Adams too. The first quality President after Washington was Monroe.

    Actually he is largely carrying on the foreign policy of George Bush, the Bush Doctrine, but is seen as more of a dilettante because of evident lack of experience and seriousness.

    He has also staffed himself with weak and inexperienced advisors, which was demonstrated most recently on his European tour. He should have been at home when the flooding and tornadoes struck, rather than drinking beer in Ireland and screwing up protocol in the UK. Not that he would have made a difference but it would have been more seemly.

    Wasn't he already on the plane when that happened?

    It's also an opinion
    Just as yours is.
