    That speaks a lot about who this clown actually is.

    This asshat will sit there and cry about how people can't put food on the table yet he turns around and goes on African safari?

    Meanwhile people call Bush evil because he went HOME to his OWN PROPERTY every few weekends?
    Actually it was Congress that spent the money. Congress controls the spending, it says so in the Constitution. You need to be equally if not more pissed off at them.

    Oh hey nice laughable strawman and pathetic attempt at using the race card

    When you can't debate the substance you trot out the Godwin's Law of race politics. Someone criticizes Obama? Blame Bush and call them a racist. Sorry, but you're going to have to learn a new chapter from the Alinsky playbook. The statute of limitations has run out on these.

    Obama ran on promises that all of this would be fixed. What did you think Hope and Change meant lol? He was supposed to have the most transparent administration in history. Instead his IRS is targeting Christians, Jews and conservatives for harassment and intimidation. His DOJ is targeting journalists. His NSA is spying on americans and collecting all our communications. He's arming and training terrorists in Syria. His economic policies are a total failure. More than a million blacks have slipped into poverty since he took office.

    People like you really don't have a moral or intellectual leg to stand on anymore. You've sold your soul to Obama and your core values have become fundamentally bankrupt. An Obama 100M vanity trip to Africa right now is about as piss poor optics as you can get to the people struggling and trying to find work in this miserable economy right now. Go ahead and blame Bush and call everyone who criticizes Obama a racist. We'll just point and laugh at you.

    There really isn't much more that needs to be said. I see it here on these forums every day. A handful of Obama puppets rationalizing and excusing rampant corruption and fraud. They don't even hide their own lack of morality and principles any more. You heard it from Rob. He could care less. The only thing he cares about is shielding Obama from and any blame and accountability. He has put a man he doesn't know above his country. Just some product spoonfed to him by the MSM who reads scripted lines off a teleprompter over his country.

    How pathetic is that?
    You know I was being facetious and yet it ends up sounding like a typical left winger. It becomes ever more difficult to ridicule the left when they insist on doing it themselves.

    I trust me I know you were being facetious

    Their behavior is nothing new however. If you look back at all the vile and corrupt administrations throughout history they always had a sycophantic base that excused and rationalized the corruption. They were also always Collectivists/Leftist ideologies. Liberals/Progressives on these boards are actually defending and excusing the IRS and NSA being used as political tools to target and harass Americans for their political beliefs. It's unprecedented in American History and the political fallout once the smoke clears is not going to be kind on these phonies. You can't call the criticism of what out Government is doing racist. Anyone who attempts to do this needs to be laughed out of the discussion. They've given up their right to be taken seriously.

    I don't care what you call yourself. Democrat. Republican. Libertarian. None of that matters if the Government is targeting you, harassing you and intimidating you because of your beliefs. You can't claim you're an American who supports the Constitution if you are defending this outrageous nonsense. Big Government is NOT altruistic as the Left would have you believe. Look at how the Left acts when they get political power. They abuse it and trample on our rights. Instead of taking a stand on principle most liberals have sold out and are now trying to tell us to suck it up and deal with it. That tells you everything you need to know about their character and integrity.

    One of the real tragedies in history was the number of Jews in Germany who stayed because they felt any political party calling itself 'socialist' could only be working for the benefit of the people. Others, with no such naive presumptions, fled.

    This severe lesson, the flirting with and acceptance of socialism, has been repeated many times throughout modern history and always with negative consequences. It seems many will just believe, and that's all there is to it.

    I was just being as pathetic as you were. The country has been on this road for at least 40 years or longer. You seem to think all our problems started as soon as Obama took office. You're what I refer to as a single vision person, to you everything and everyone that don't see things the way you do is bad. The truth is both the Republicans and Democrats are basically the same. They both put their own pocket books ahead of the country. Look at the last 12 years or so. They have both had complete control of Congress,Senate and the WH, they could have stopped this train wreck but all they did was kick the can down the hill. I look at cheer leaders from both sides and just shake my head. The politicians are partly to blame but the people that keep electing them based only on which letter they have are more to blame for the mess we're in. During the Bush years when the Reps. were in control they yelled and screamed for a fence on the border, they spent millions and the last time I checked we had about a mile of it built, but I haven't heard any of them mention it in years, where did all that money go? The Dems. yelled and screamed about health care control and look at what that's gonna cost. When people take their blinders off and start looking at the politicians for what they do and not just at the alphabet letter then we might be able to start fixing these problems.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Do you really not know that Congress controls the spending? Look it up, it's in the Constitution. Congress controls the spending and levy's taxes, so when your taxes go up it's Congress that raised them. The only thing a President (no matter which letter) can do is submit a request to Congress for whatever amount he wants. It's then up to Congress to either approve it, not approve it, or modify it.

    Strawman and speculation.

    Oh stop it. You're the one hysterically screaming racist and blaming Bush for Obama's fascism

    Democrats took control of Congress in 2007. Bush hasn't been President in more than 4 years. Get with the present. You're living in the past.
