    It's never Obama's fault. I'm embarrassed for the Libbos, seeing how they defend him. I mean, how can someone have any self respect, when their defense of Obama is that he's incompetent?

    No. You guys just tend to go stupid and try to attach everything to him.

    Right! It's not like he's The President, or anything. How foolish to think that The President take responsibility for what happens on his watch. That's totally asinine to think that.

    This is from your source,

    Consider President Eisenhower. In 1953, the year before the Brotherhood was outlawed by Nasser, a covert US propaganda program headed by the US Information Agency brought over three dozen Islamic scholars and civic leaders mostly from Muslim countries for what officially was an academic conference at Princeton University. The real reason behind the meeting was an effort to impress the visitors with America’s spiritual and moral strength, since it was thought that they could influence Muslims’ popular opinion better than their ossified rulers. The ultimate goal was to promote an anti-Communist agenda in these newly independent countries, many of which had Muslim majorities.
    You had to go back nearly 70s years, to find a way to defend Obama? That's very telling.

    Ya know, there was a company of Muslims that served in the Confederate Army. Does that that make The Confederates supporters of Islamofacism, too?

    Really, so Bush was responsible for 9/11? The economy tanking? Korea moving toward nukes? I guess I was wrong to defend him on those. I thought some had to actually have a hand in what happened. Silly me.

    America's political consciousness is ruled by this sickly impulse to ascribe to our presidents the responsibility of emperors.

    The only thing that can cause an emperor to fail is incompetent planning.

    I don't have a high opinion of George Bush, but I never considered him more responsible for the excesses of the War on Terror than the American people as a whole.

    Again considering the cluster**** that Bush left him with... then he needed to be freaking Harry Potter to fix it all.



    Yes, and it had a lot of help from the GOP. Not being able to get rid of GITMO because of GOP interference.



    Never ever denied it did not.. that is you that are trying to gloat over something... of which your side had a large portion of blame in torpedoing but also creating.
    You (and your Socialist accomplices) are deflecting, and doing a bad job of it.

    Obama was the one who said the world and Muslims will look at Amerika differently after HE was elected.

    Our Miss Amerika president. How much crap has this guy been shoveled his whole life to believe that dung? You've got to be a little more than living in some type of fantasy world to first believe such idiocy and then spout it to the world. Of course... the press never called him on it, or much else, and then there are the Miss Amerika Morons that voted for him believing it!

    When I read through these threads... sometimes I have to just stand back in awe. These conservatives... its like they were created in a factory, scientists worked day and night to create the stupidest people possible, who would believe the dumbest things for the dumbest reasons and whose sole purpose was to poison progress and ruin everything they touch, dragging their feet and stomping around like whiny children. In every single event that occurs they throw a tantrum and cry about how they hate their mommy and wish she were dead. They know nothing about anything except for one thing, to attack everything good in the world as though it is evil.
