    You're the one accusing me of being a Nazi for pointing out that Obama has only been in office for two months and may not have gotten around to every single point on his agenda just yet.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I'm not saying he won't, and I'm not one of the people ragging on him for not fixing the world in 80 days. He's got plenty of time to do all the stuff he says he will. The only reason why this issue in particular is worth noting now is because the way the budgeting process works ensures that if it doesn't happen now, it won't happen for at least a year, and considering that the momentum from the election will be gone, it's a lot less likely to happen in the end.

    uhm quote me where I accused you of being a "Nazi".....



    you people are like parrots, monkeying about the "2 months" talking points......

    When is it appropriate to critisize chairman maobama?
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    I assume that your accusing me of not tolerating "critisizm" was more than just a mangling of a word a fourth grader could spell?
    If you weren't calling me a Nazi, then I really have no idea what you were trying to do there.

    Depends on the issue. And it depends if you're criticizing him for doing something or for NOT doing something.

    I plan to give him his entire term to establish a sustainable energy policy.
    I plan to give him at least 2-3 years to restore sanity to our foreign policy and global reputation.
    I plan to give him at least two years to make major alterations to the tax code, unrelated to the current economic crisis.
    I plan to give him at least a year to get his health care agenda passed.
    I plan to give him at least six months to increase development aid...especially to countries likely to be hot spots (Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen), but really to most countries in extreme poverty.
    And I've already criticized him pretty vocally for waiting so long to develop a mediocre bank plan, for not doing more to prevent protectionism, and for saying he won't end the Cuban embargo or legalize marijuana.

    Let see, you said I called you a Nazi. you were proven wrong.


    No show me where I said that I expected him to do everything on his punch list.....


    i'll wait.

    So in other words, you can choose what to critisize him on, but if I do it, you will throw a fit?


    Or is it that your strawman failed so miserably, you are hoping to hang on to a little credibility here?

    Did you even think before saying that, or do you really believe that stuff?
