    I know, but the Rep/con poster is trying to make Obama a Socialist/Marxist because he claims his father was one (he didn't post any links that prove his father was either), but, you chastise me for bringing up the business relationship between Bush and OBL's brother, but not him?

    LOL!

    Obama's rating on economy hits new low: poll | Reuters
    By chance, do you have any comparison of Obama's ratings to Congress' ratings? Especially if they include figures before and after the debt ceiling crisis.

    Moderator's Warning:
    United States loses its AAA Credit rating from S & POK... enough of the "Obama is a Marxist or is not a Marxist" crap. That is NOT the topic of the thread. Get back to the topic, of I can issue plenty of thread bans.

    Anyone who thinks Obama is a marxist/socialist really is dramatically ignorant of our history. Richard Nixon's policies were FAR more liberal than Obama's.
    What is sad is how Obama supporters have such low standards and ignore the record 2 1/2 years after he took office still claiming he inherited what he has created. Looks like you are among the 39% that still support Obama.

    Over time, and through the hate-filled chatter of the blogs and the talk shows, we have all acquired the sense that our two political parties have fundamentally different views of government. Democrats favor big-government programs that solve the world's problems, and Republicans prefer smaller and leaner government that stays out of the way of the private sector.

    But the record says the opposite.
    Obama Will Spend Less--Way Less!--Than Bush - Forbes.com

    The record? The 2008 Bush budget without TARP and without the Stimulus was 3.0 trillion dollars. The 2010-2011 Obama spending as 3.7 trillion dollars each. You call that spending less. Another of the 39% support for Obama

    Keep defending the empty suit, another of the 39% that support Obama. Congressional ratings are irrelevant but play right into the hands of those who will never address the Obama record. Congressional elections are local not national yet the Presidential elections are national. 39% approval rating doesn't bode well for the cult followers.

    No doubt. Remember when we had BDS? (Bush Derangement Syndrome) Now we have a segment of the country that, I not only suspect suffered that effect during the GWB years, but now has channeled that into a kind of ODS, only flipped from the vitriol of the Bush years turned into an almost religious following of Obama. I swear we could be 20 years down the road, and if it were possible that Obama would be in office, thank God he can't and won't past '12, but if he were they would still be blaming Bush for the policies of Obama that are complete failures.
