    The naivete should be in caps. Seemed so easy when he was running around with the rehearsed speeches, but now that he's actually having to walk the walk he seems a little unsure. I'm scared for him and us at this point, cause he can, and probably will, do a lot of harm in the amount of time he's going to be in. I don't trust his judgment at all. I'd say that swagger with the little limp in it is going to turn to just a limp real shortly.

    Those lobbyists just keep on slipping in. Did you catch David Ogden who was an attorney for the porn industry, and who is ultra liberal nominated for Deputy Attorney General?

    I'm glad this is happening cause the media can't hide it. They are also getting the old, "what goes around, comes around" getting slapped in their vindictive, vengeful faces. Hope the BBC, and foreign presses are getting a load of it all.

    Yeah, but you're smarter! Geting something halfway round the world is no easy task. These supposed smart guys that make these quotes, not sure.

    Don't worry, the foreign press sees the new president, sees the optimism with which the world received him, and also sees the constant, petty, partisan, divisive obstructionism coming from the American right. What they wonder is, if the rest of the world can hope for the best for the new American administration, why can't Americans?

    This inability to accept that the opposition won, and will govern for at least 4 years, seems to be a failing of the American experiment in democracy. If the party that lost the election is actively working toward the failure of the new administration, how can they be trusted for counsel or inclusion? How can they even be considered patriotic?

    I see what you're saying, Rev. I don't think you help make it an "interesting conversation" when you come back with these angry responses dismissing anyone who isn't disgusted with Obama like you are. How that provides for interesting conversation is beyond me.

    Anyway, I think people are pounding on you because all you seem to do is start threads attacking Obama. You did it thorughout the election. You're doing since Obama took office. After a while, people just see, "Oh, there's Reverend Hellh0und complaing about Obama again."

    People tend to not want to engage constant complainers. Look at the positive responses you get when you post about your future child.

    Why the hell would you even trust the government or politicians in the first place? Any institution or people whom wield the power and sovereignty of the People must be treated with distrust for the chances of abuse are well too great. The failing isn't that now the Republicans are fighting the Democrats, the failing is that the People have not been diligent in their duties as freemen to watch and constrain the government. Fighting between the two parties...that's expected. Hell that's one of the reasons we need at least 2 parties, you can't just sit there and pass pass pass legislation and think that our freedom and liberty is gonna come out on top. We need friction, we need a slow and inefficient system of governance.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Wait, where am I angry? Gawd can I put any more smilies in?


    And are you suggesting that my response to the nonsense is the problem, not the nonsense itself?

    I post many threads on Obama, yes. The ones that are more serious, tend to be avoided.

    Wait, is this the Whos having a baby forum, or a political forum. I address issues that obama has as president his choices and his mistakes.

    I also point out where I think he is right or is doing the right thing.


    You all wish to ignore this in order to make it all about me.


    Like I said, You all get what you give.


    Take it for what its worth.


    And I am never angry...... trust me.

    I did. I haven't done ogden yet as I am having my fill of the "pound the Reverend" game here. I am glad posters like will have attempted to come out of thier shells but we shall see.


    As far as obama, I fully agree. He is showing his inexperience in a big way. I have a whole nother topic I may start about how this stimulous bill is tatamount to blowing ones load prematurly and how it may come to pass that this wish list package is going to bite him in the ass in a couple of years.


    We will see.
