    It might be easier if you just list his achievements.

    It appears the Nobel Prize Committee perceived Obama a lot more accurately than many of our own citizens.
    They said ... "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples" ... but they were thinking "for his willingness to subordinate his own Country and redistribute its abundance across the Globe until equality is acheived"

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I didn't realize that President Obama created the New Deal and Great Society programs -- silly me.

    Actually, during the Progressive Era (about 100 years ago,) it was commonplace and widely accepted to support high taxes on the rich specifically in order to keep the rich from getting richer. Also, the U.S. foreign Aide budget is about $45 billion, with much of it credits to buy American products. That fact is at odds with the ludicrous claim that Obama is "redistributing [America's] abundance across the Globe."

    In essence, the above post is from some other place than reality.

    I bought some fine netting yesterday, and the guy who helps me with outside work is currently getting it spread around each bush. He is gathering the netting together at the bottom and tying it to the bush "trunks" to completely enclose the bushes. The birds are sitting in nearby trees watching, so we'll see. I have now lowered my wine expectations to one bottle *fingers crossed*, and if it didn't taste so good, I wouldn't even bother with that.

    Greetings, bubba. What are you up to these days?

    Extremist right-wing are the people who reject what has traditionally been centrist American beliefs. Specifically, the extremist right-wing reject progressive taxation and government social programs. They are people who a generation ago would have been members of the John Birch Society. Contrarily, Dwight Eisenhower was an example of a centrist Republican. This is what Ike said:

    Should any political party attempt to abolish Social Security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor law and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man and they are stupid!" Dwight Eisenhower, November 8, 1954.

    Excellent! Most sane people don't particularly enjoy fighting battles they can't win - unfortunately they aren't in DC, so this is what we get! Do the DC'ers really think that they are going to change 1,000 years of religious history because they feel like it? Appears so. Notice I used the word "sane" above!

    Greetings, joG.
