You buy the liberal rhetoric and ignore the background, why is that?

    Has the killing of Bin Laden made us safer? Has the peace been won in Iraq or Afghanistan? Name for me the Obama accomplishments that have made the economy stronger and the world safer?
    "enhanced interrogation" is PC for torture. I don't support it and I don't believe it works. With torture you can make somebody say anything you want them to say. Have you ever had someone twist your arm around your back and say "Say Uncle?"

    Well, the CIA says differently but then again you obviously know more than they do. makes me wonder what you would do if a close family member of yours was being held hostage by terrorists?

    Well, the CIA are the ones that did it, so why would they say anything else?

    So you believe a Democrat Congressional Representative who probably supported the war but now is looking for votes over the CIA? Interesting. What is it about liberal indoctrination that creates this kind of loyalty?

    I am always amazed by the fluctuation in approval ratings this far into a presidents term. Who the hell are they polling? Plus, the idea that SC decisions increase a presidents popularity is rather dubious. I think Obama has rather low ratings considering the state of the economy and lack of American soldiers streaming home in body bags. All in all it strikes me as rather meaningless, but it is what it is so good for him.

    You are looking for anything to prop up the incompetent you support but reality just goes to show how economically challenged you are. Still waiting for an answer to the question I asked you but as usual you ran from it.
    I posted the results that explain my support of Obama and you failed to explain how you support a President that had negative job growth in 2 terms among a host of other failures. What is it about conservatives that makes them look at terrible results and see roses? Do you actually believe Bush's performance on the economy was satisfactory or are you just happy that he cut your taxes even though it directly caused the record deficits you now are crying about? Are you as partisan and self-centered as your posts seem? Sadly the world does not revolve around you bank account.

    The results you posted are nothing more than leftwing talking points that are out of context and totally inaccurate. You don't seem to have any understanding of unemployment, economic growth, civics, or anything to do with foreign policy. When the debt skyrockets 7.6 trillion in less than 7 years, the GDP is stagnant, the U-6 rate is 10.8%, underemployment remains high how can anyone call those successes? When Obama tries to micromanage the U.S. economy by demonizing the coal industry, forcing private business to pay workers whatever they deem necessary, meddle in overtime rules and regulations and you support that, just shows that you are a typical liberal with no understanding of economics in the private sector

    Proud to be an American?

    One of the most racist countries in the West. A country that - since 9/11 - has acted pathetically internationally. One that runs around the world, bombing countries at will (committing technical acts of war), detaining innocent people for over a decade, torturing others and flat out invading countries when they don't like their regime and almost always leaving the place FAR worse off then when they arrived. A country that is so obsessed with terrorism that it monitors it's own citizens private communications and limits freedoms and rights of those same citizens in the name of 'public safety'. A country that spends far, FAR more then all it's potential enemies several times over on defence - and yet much of America's population actually wants more defence spending. And despite this obsession with terrorism and the gigantic amounts of money spent to fight it, terrorist organizations are FAR stronger now then before 9/11 AND far too many Americans have become spineless and cower in fear whenever a terrorist goes 'boo' - even half way around the world.

    A country which prides itself on 'free enterprise' is now one whose economy is practically run by bankers at the Fed.

    A country which is broke and getting broker every day and whose economy is still stumbling along in mediocrity despite massive government stimuli and zero interest rates.

    A country that is so incredibly backwards that it just now passed a same sex marriage law that is WAAAAAY behind the curve in the West International | Freedom to Marry Being proud of a country that now allows gay marriage is like being proud of your child for not bullying the neighbourhood children any longer. Sure, it's good he stopped doing it, but it was pathetic that he was doing it in the first place.


    Before 9/11, America was a country to be proud of. Now, imo, it is a country that at the very least has lost it's way. And at the most has become a sad excuse for a great power.
