    You and I must have different definitions of the meaning of "fiscally conservative moderate." He ran on a big liberal platform. He has been much less than liberal. In fact, he has been fairly moderate. Sure, he has done his "socialist workings" of Obamacare, promoting gay rights, etc. but he also kept the Republican Bush Tax Cuts, he has remained fairly friendly with Wall St / Big business, and left a few of the Conservative rights alone.

    Moderate? Obama is a virtual Bush clone. Obamacare is in many ways a handout to private insurance the same way Bush's medicare D was a hand out to big pharm.

The facts are that we are in a spending crisis, and this bill wants to spend more money. It's nothing short of illogical partisanship to say Republicans are terrorists or that they hate America because they voted down this bill.
    I find clarity of thought very refreshing in this endless sea of partisanship.

    That's really not a fair statement.

    Drunken sailors usually have to stop when they run out of money.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    So because he didn't go completely communist, you think he was too soft?

    Because he snuggled up to wall st. while placing increasing regulation end running congress, destroying the very people that gave him the most money for his election is being friendly?

    With friends like him...you know the rest.

    When Obama rope a doped an entire country.... it was monumental. Never before have so many in the U.S. been duped by a snake oil salesman. He does deserve some credit. Hope and Change... and the seas will call his name and the angles will sing from the heavens....

    Who has he destroyed specifically?

    I'm pretty sure despite "regulations" corporate profits are up.

    And don't forget teachers. And don't forget the folks that cook school lunches that Republicans want to fire, so school children die of hunger.

    Helping others is a good thing, and you are welcome to send all of your money to those people.

    Why? Because they bought the rheotric and ignored the resume. Now he has a record which will be on the ballot in 2012. Obama isn't who most people thought he was, too leftwing, no leadership skills, and a true divider.
