    dunno what you are talking about. Again, irrellevant.



    Nor do I think it's in any way irrelevant. The common wingnut line is that Obama is the worst human being EVER!! Whether that determination is based on objective reason or partisan bull**** can often be determined by examining whether or not the speaker gives a damn that the exact same sort of thing went on when their team was in charge. Capiche?
    oh so, you are making excuses for obama by speculating what other posters thought about past presidents inaction.... I see, baseless as usual.

    You don't see any connection? You're not familiar with the fact that politicians running for reelection generally try to emphasize their accomplishments and minimize their failures?
    So do you really think that makes it ok for them to do it? I am not sure if you are actually endorsing this deflection. Personally I think that politicians should be accepting responsiblity for what they do.

    Wait, did you finally accept and acknowledge that is a failure of Obamas?

    I don't care what Obama calls himself.... I am 3/4 irish, 1/4 English... I identify with my irish heritage due to language and upbringing. Obama Identifies with his african roots because he grew up as for all intensive purposes a black man. His skin color, does not scream "white" to society. I see nothing wrong with Obama identifying with his African-american roots.
    1/4 English and 3/4 Irish only means you speak very politely during a bar brawl.

    I never denied that it was a screw up by his administration. Nor have I ever claimed that he's above politics.

    The comparison has to do with the people making the complaint -- not the complainee.

    so it's a deflection by going after posters for speculation of a lack of outrage of the previous administration..... Bush isn't the president anymore, I think it's time for you and the obama to move on.

    You have to understand that Adam is always spouting lies and/or false facts on other threads such as Obama's auto bailouts saved MILLIONS and MILLIONS of jobs or that the effect of the stimulous caused 23 consecutive months of job growth.

    Questioning the credibility of the comlaint is not a deflection.
