    No he's not. Take this conspiracy bunk out of this thread and to the proper forum if you want to continue such BS.

    What it comes down to is, for most people, their feelings about protesting and opposing a president is based off what letter's next to their name, not principles.

    I've always been consistent in my positions of how I view my president. They have my full support and if I disagree with them, I will say so without being disrespectful- no matter what letter is next to their name. Maybe I am being a bitch to point it out to someone how they are being hypocrites, but I feel I am equal across the board. Can you show me where I am not being equal?

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Sorry, few misunderstandings there I think...

    First, wasn't saying you were being a bitch. I said Bitching...ie complaining...was what I was speaking about.

    Second, I wasn't talking about your personal stance. You've been someone that generally keeps a very consistant view point. What I was saying though is that your post made it out as if Republicans are the only ones being hypocrites; going from saying that its disrespectful to protest the President to saying its couragous.

    Which, I agree with you there.

    What I was saying though, is if you're going to point out the hypocracy you may as well point it out both ways. Because previously, Democrats were saying it was patriotic and something to be commended if someone protested or opposed the president...yet now many of them are saying people are being nit picky, disrespectful, childish, or simply making fun of them. They TOO are being hypocrites.

    Not all republicans are doing it, not all democrats, but a sizable portion of both seem to be holding rather hypocritical views in regards to protesting the president that leads me to believe they base their views less on principles and more on whether its an R or D next to the guys name.

    Not saying you're one of those, was just saying if you're going to point out the republican hypocracy you may as well point out the democrats as well.

    tyrant - definition of tyrant by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    1. An absolute ruler who governs without restrictions.
    2. A ruler who exercises power in a harsh, cruel manner.

    3. An oppressive, harsh, arbitrary person.
    Why do you use words you don't understand the definitions to?

    Gosh darn it, I just can't keep up with all these double standards and I so want to be part of the in-crowd here.....
    I personally never questioned people's right to bash or question any president... I did my share with both Clinton and Bush. I never understood the sheer hate that so many liberals showed for Bush, even though he acted like a liberal so often with excessive spending bills like Medicare Part B and a few other spend-a-thons! I do understand the disappointment that many conservatives showed that often bordered on hate. Unlike liberals and many moderates, I did not have a problem with his actions in Iraq and his general handling of post-911 security issues. I feel pretty confident that anyone could have stuck a "Bush, Go To Hell" bumper sticker on their car in recent years with no concern for personal safety or retribution. If you think that remains the case with Obama, you're smokin' some strong stuff. Many of those who support Obama are so irrationally passionate about him that I would expect violence to be in order for those who openly disrespect their guy. I don't believe that the crowd cited in this thread was disrespectful to the office of president - they were openly against the actions of the man who presently inhabits that office. I concur with their sentiments!

    It's all about the "D" or the "R" next to the president's name. When Bush was trashing the Constitution, liberals went nuts. Now that Obama is doing it, it's OK. Works the other way around too.

This is all besides his record of supporting fascism and socialism in the U.S. Senate.
    If he stole trillions of dollars then so did all but three other politicians. Wonder if you felt this same way about Bush.


    Obama is a non-American who has defrauded the American people to declare himself "president."
    Prove it.

    Do you suffer from some form of digital coprolalia or something?
    Good word. Had to look it up. No. This is very voluntary.

    See, you are learning now.

    Again I am impressed with your ability to make use of online reference websites.


    Why do you use words you don't understand the definitions to?
    Such as?

    Should we call it conspiracy then?

    Only three pols voted against the Bush-Obama takeover schemes? I have zero faith in government, but I don't recall it being that bad.

    Prove it.
    That burden of proof is on Obama, but the almighty moderator has already declared Constitutionally-based questioning of Obama off-limits in this thread.


    Good word. Had to look it up. No. This is very voluntary.
    Gee, and I went out of my way trying to make an excuse for your rude and juvenile behavior.
