    The father Bush's central theme for his election was "No New Taxes" which he then went back on. It may not have been the sole reason for his defeat in re-election, but I am sure it contributed.

    You go ahead and make whatever excuses you need to make...

    Fact is, you support The Obama because He has a (D) next to his name, and you'll contine to support Him -- and make excuses for Him -- no matter what He does.

    I was just about to mention this. This is the major reason he lost.

    while it is semantics, isn't it true?
    he did not make any new taxes, he just raised existing ones

    Right Goobieman, attack at all costs there buddy. Seems like Obama isn't the only one engaging in "business as usual" these days.

    And as I have said in the "Obama/Rush Debate" thread, in four years the peopel will judge Obama on his overall performance, broken campaign promises and all.

    Its apparent that the entire premise of The Obama's campaign -- "change" - has been shown to be a fraud.

    And, that's OK by you -- after all, He has a (D) next to His name.

    So, don't let me keep you from your next excuse...
