    You've spent most of the thread constantly repeating the lame excuse that Barack Obama, President of the United States and owner of The Bully Pulpit, has been the helpless victim of "misinformation". Even if the criticisms of Obamacare were that -- and they are NOT -- the question remains, why can't the silver-tongued O refute the misinformation? It obviously isn't his fault!

    "So, there is a disconnect, not to mention scare tactics and misinformation being thrown at them"

    "I am as well. Far too much misinformation floating around."

    "Sadly it is certainly true the misinformation is doing better in reaching the public than Obama's arguments in favor of it. I think these polls show that."

    "It would be if it wasn't the truth. Misinformation is very, very hard to get around. Nothing is harder than to educate someone on something he THINKS he knows."

    "Like I said, some are easily swayed by the rhetoric, the spin, and the silliness."

    "You're shocked by this? Misinformation rules this country."

    I'm afraid you may be suffering from the "If he's black, he must be liberal" syndrome (it's an old ailment and contagious among cons) ... I don't have time for this, so I did a quick search and found this (but we can of course agree to disagree - I've always seen him as an old moderate Republican) ...

    Many pundits, both liberal and conservative, have claimed that President Barack Obama's inauguration speech indicated a more liberal direction for the president's second term. If true, this would be a significant shift because, by at least one measure, Obama is the most conservative Democratic president in the post-World War II period.

    Two University of Georgia political science professors, Keith Poole and Christopher Hare, have examined the positions on congressional legislation of every president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt and scored the positions on a liberal to conservative scale. Based upon this data, Obama is closest to the center of all six of the Democratic presidents who followed Roosevelt.

    Obama is slightly more centrist than Lyndon B. Johnson and Harry Truman, and much more centrist than Jimmy Carter, John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton. Placed in order from most liberal to least liberal, those six presidents would be ranked like this: Carter, Kennedy, Clinton, Truman, Johnson, Obama.

    don't be so sensitive and divert attention from what we were talking about ... blacks consistently vote for Dem candidates and by and large tend to be more liberal than whites, so it's easy to understand why someone would make the assumption you're making .... I have no idea if you're a racist ... but let try this true/false question to help me decide:
    "Barack Obama is an affirmative action 'hire.'" TRUE or FALSE

    Obama was elected by a clear majority of the American people who voted. And I'd love Obamacare, if only O were white!

    read the study by the two poltical scientists from georgia ... I can't do everything for you ... that's a problem with cons ... typically they expect others to do things for them that they should be doing for themselves ... but O.K. ... you may find this interesting (and keep in mind that the Republicans have moved so far to the right that even Reagan would look like a liberal today) ...

    still, I'd go to the original work by Poole ... let me know what you find ...

    The health wasn't what they wanted. Remember the public option, for example. Or how about losing Gitmo?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    well, you're in luck ... you can half love it (actually, more than that when you consider that he was raised by white folks and surrounds himself with many more white folks than he does black folks.)!
