    LOL Well, I hope that the headline will get back to Obama and that he acts soon thereafter.

    Maybe he's waiting to do it under the radar so to speak. I'm sure he doesn't want it ruling the news cycle.

    I was going to ask this very same question. Why are the raids being conducted? Could there be some illegal activity going on or is this a case of a DEA director gone rougue? We'll just have to wait and see.

    Let's hope the media shines some light on this.

The man is all talk, he'll tell you anything you want to hear to get you into bed and the next morning he'll be gone before the sun comes up.

    No offense, but you sound like a very bitter person who wouldn't be happy no matter who was in the White House. Obama has done nothing to indicate that he is "all talk", yet that criticism sounds good to you, so you use it. You say "he's a man not to be trusted", yet he hasn't had time yet to demonstrate he is unworthy of trust. You say his "goal" is the expansion of government, yet I think there is a concensus that his goal is the improvement of the lives of the American people. I suppose it is your Libertarian beliefs that lead you to conclude that no politician can be trusted, but I don't see how you could run a country on those beliefs.

Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Re: DEA continues pot raids Obama opposes

    Actually, he has done "something" to indicate he's all talk. Take a look at the entire lobbyists in the white house debacle. From breaking campaign promises (politics as usual) to creating ethics rules with specific loopholes to get the people he wants in despite the message he's sending (politics as usual) it showed at least in part he was all talk. This was something.

    You can say "But he's only been in 3 weeks!". So can I. In 3 weeks he managed to break a large campaign promise and already was going agaisnt his main campaign message.

    One dollar isn't a lot of money...but if you start finding 6 or 7 of them on top of a few $5's and $10's it can add up quick. I'd consider this current story small, but other things he's been doing add into it to make people believe its not likely to change.

    That said, I can understand people like aps saying "Its only been 3 weeks" and not passing judgement yet. However to say that he's done "Nothing" to indicate it is just factually incorrect.

    He has proven that he is either 1:lying or 2: completely ignorant.

    He also harnessed the power of emotion and what I think is pay offs to get people to vote for him. The crazy thing is its plastered all over his website.

    (paraphrasing) "I'll tax 'Big Oil' and give you a $500 check." That was one of his campaign promises. That, to me, "is saying vote for me and I'll pay you money." Is that a person you can trust?

    You also are under the false belief that government can make individuals lives better. How the hell can they do that? They can make it better by staying the hell away from me.

    Most politicians can't be trusted. They have proven that.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Obama has done nothing to indicate he's not just another politician. And that's where our differences come in at. You'll believe what he says till he breaks his word (which he has done already. He did say he'd wait 5 days for non-emergency bills to allow public discourse of the bill on the WH website...but that didn't happen with a bill already). I, on the other hand, won't believe he's something different and honorable until he proves himself different and honorable.

    His cabinet is full of political friends and senators, tax cheats and lobbyists (which I thought he wasn't going to have). You're telling me he's different, his actions seem to state otherwise. No offense, but you seem to be someone whom is easily swayed by rhetoric and naively trusting of those whom wield our power; unquestioningly so. He's sent missiles into Pakistan, he's talking about growing the government even more, spending ridiculous amounts of money on ineffective bailouts and stimulus. How is this not more of the same? So I'm to believe he's gonna hold up his word on pot as well? He's already broken promises, you can say I'm negative or whatever but I'll believe it when I see it.
