    And you see Obama as good at that? Compromising?

    Then it should be easy for you to quote his words where he did that.

    not to worry....I am sure that you will find at least one of my posts will be disagreeable to you, since you are a liberal.
    Problem is, I seem to get a lot of conservatives calling me liberal. Hardly ever get a liberal calling me a conservative.
    Not sure what that means...

    OK here are a couple off the top of my head.

    During the auto bailouts, Obama called bondholders of Chysler debt greedy speculators. How about when he asked how much is enough when talking about certain CEO pay.

    Did I miss the part where you reproduced the quotes and then offered analysis as to how that proves he demonizes success as Turtle alleges?

    Without seeing the exact quotes I could not say for sure, however, it seems you are confusing a dispute about tax policy or the worth of ones labor with the hyperbolic over the top charge of demonizing success.

    You are telling me you do not remember these comments. I know you work for a politician but lets be childish.

    I am merely asking you to give us the quotes so we an check for the allegation of demonization. As I stated, I suspect you are confusing the hyperbolic over the top charge of demonization with a simply difference of opinion about economic policy.
