    You're right, sex bots will get there first.

    Or, did you forget how good you had it before the country went crazy and put democrats in charge of congress?

    People still had houses and cars. Gasoline was selling at $2.34 a gallon. Unemployment was at 4.6% and falling. The Dow was at 12,400 (without quantitative easing) and rising. And our national debt was around $8.5 trillion. Well below our GDP.
    Things were pretty good back then compared to now. Well, gasoline is still pretty low. But, that's in spite of obama and not because of him.

    You certainly do live up to your name. Because, you're living in a fantasy world if you think obama has done any good to my country.
    I'm no huge fan of Obama at this point because of the ACA, but you're living in LaLaLand if you don't recognize a legacy right in front of your face.

    Obama has racked up quite a list of historical accomplishments during his 7 years in office. And he did it in the face of almost total obstruction by the other party, whose primary goal was not to let Obama accomplish anything (rather than helping we, the people, or the country - sounds almost traitorous, doesn't it?).

    Whether one likes the accomplishments or not, this last week alone was historical among presidencies: a huge trade deal; a win fighting terminology in the ACA for subsidies in exchanges; and a gay marriage Supreme Court decision. Add that to the killing of Osama bin Laden, signing into law the Lilly Ledbetter Act (equal wages for women), anda host of other accomplishments. It's really remarkable. Starting with his election and re-election, as a black man.

    Historically, it'll be Washington, Lincoln, FDR, Reagan, Obama.

    Let me educate you a little.......clownboy.



    The Court in Loving v. Virginia found that the right to marry was a "Fundamental Right" under the substantive due process clause of the 14th Amendment. It then engaged in what is called "Strict Scrutiny"...which the Court applies whenever a suspect class or fundamental right is involved. In order for the governmental restriction to prevail, the government must show a compelling governmental interest to justify the action.

    The Court in the recent marriage equality case engaged in the same exact analysis.


    Sorry dude.....but you lose.


    Try picking up a textbook and reading a little before you come to the table next time.

    So is corporate personhood and that right there is outside the constitution as well.

    I'll never love the announcement that our Judicial system has abandoned their oaths and unmoored themselves from the constitution. You go right ahead and celebrate that.

    ACA is a disaster, anyone would have gone after binladen and not hesitated like obama did, the lilly ledbetter act wasn't needed (and neither obama or hillary abides by it in the first place), etc,etc,etc...
    What you call accomplishments are a pumped up list of fluff, failures and soon to be failures.
    And, obama isn't black. He just plays one on TV.
