    Just pointing out Obama's changes in positions after being elected. I'm sure many think he lied.

    He doesn't support a terrorist organization. Hamas, by the standards of the UN, is a terrorist organization, as is Israel. Then again, from your avatar, we can all see what you think about the UN. I am unsure of any factual basis that the U.S. used to label Hamas a "terrorist organization" that couldn't be applied to Israel.
    Hamas is a terrorist organization, Israel isn't.

    Circumstances can change. People can change. Not making excuses, just offering other options

    Hamas is a terrorist organization, Israel isn't.
    Really? I wouldn't agree. Based on what criteria?

    You really don't like being proven wrong do you? I guess when you start off with bull**** claims like yours it's better to try and excuse yourself from the conversation by laughing it off. Run along now. You're boring me with your nonsense.

    Jimmy Carter, America's 39 th president, denounced the Obama administration for "clearly violating" 10 of the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, writing in a New York Times op-ed on Monday that the "United States is abandoning its role as the global champion of human rights."

    "Instead of making the world safer, America's violation of international human rights abets our enemies and alienates our friends," Carter wrote. Jimmy Carter Accuses U.S. of 'Widespread Abuse of Human Rights' - Yahoo! News


    Is there any question that Jimmy Carter has either an agenda or is a loon?


    "I'm Jimma Carter, advisor to the presidents. Barack Obama is following my lead when it comes to his energy and his economic stimulus policy. I'm sure he will be successful. All of you know what a great job I did and how well things actually turned out when I was president!"

    As Jimmy Carter stepped before the television cameras in the East Room of the White House last Friday, his task was not just to proclaim another new anti-inflation program but to calm a national alarm that had begun to border on panic. Inflation and interest rates, both topping 18%, are so far beyond anything that Americans have experienced in peacetime—and so far beyond anything that U.S. financial markets are set up to handle—as to inspire a contagion of fear. Usually confident businessmen and bankers have begun talking of Latin American-style hyperinflation, financial collapse, major bankruptcies, a drastic drop in the American standard of living.

    For three weeks the White House struggled to develop a plan that would restore the public's confidence that the Government could bring the economy under control. It summoned business leaders and representatives of civic groups from all over the country, consulted daily with ever widening circles of influential Congressmen. There was talk of a televised presidential address to a joint session of Congress. But the dramatized search for an anti-inflation program proved slow and frustrating. Within the Administration, economists fretted endlessly over the pros and cons of various budget-balancing proposals. The President's aides finally canceled all plans for Carter to address Congress, which was reluctant to play host to what was bound to be an unpleasant message.

    Both stumble with their energy policies. How can Obama win with gas prices going so high?

    I wish that Seal Team 6 would have captured Osama bin Laden & brought him to Justice, I wish that rather than killing the top leadership of al Quada with drones (& colateral damage) a Team had captured them live, to stand trial. But I can live with the results.
    I wish President Obama had gotten the votes to close Gitmo, but as we all know the R's filibustered it, so I can't blame the president.

    Are you looking through rose colored classes, Obama did not have the democrat voted, remember it was the dem's that controlled all three branches of government. But of course it's all Bush's fault. Then you mention Obama taking Osama alive, that's another joke, he don't take prisoners, he just kills them and any civilians along with them. Obama's policy is "don't take prisoners, kill them". Bush captured them and water boarded a couple of them, but Obama has taken torture to a new level. Just kill them. No do process, no asking them a question, or sending them to Clubgetmo. Kill them.

    PolitiFact | The Obameter: Close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center

    Would you care to back up your assertion? Because it's total bull****. The Congress that fought the closing was a Democrat controlled Congress. The Democrats did not want the detainees in their states. The Republicans didn't take over the House until Jan 2011. By that time even the FY11 budget had been passed.
