    Re: Presidential Address

    "You Lie"! was the first time the truth has been in at a presidential address to the nation since Lincoln. I thought it was refreshing to hear.

    He always gives great speeches. If you want to get all glazed over by how he forms sentences, then be my guest. I tend to listen to what he is actually saying inside those sentence and the repercussions such statements if put into practice will have. Its called substance. He is full of grandiose rhetoric, but you have to get beyond the 2 year old blank stare of hearing and seeing Baby Einstein on TV for the 1st couple of times and actually pay attention to what the man is actually saying.

    On republicans, they're just hypocrites, universal health care is good for Iraq but not the US, right? Article 31 of the Iraqi Constitution, drafted by right-wing Bushies in 2005 and ratified by the Iraqi people, includes state-guaranteed (single payer) health care for every Iraqi citizen.

    Article 31 reads:



    Bush's followers are proud of the Iraqi Constitution, a model for the world, they say. So, according to republicans, government-guaranteed health care is good for Iraqis, but not for Americans, ok...
    First: I could care less about Iraq's constitution.

    Second: I find it interesting that you lament the name calling and dissent, then proceed to disparage others as "fanatical, partisan and immature with their irrational hatred".

    What were you saying about "only irrational and ignorant people think like that."?

    Sic is only needed when something is mispelled and you're posting the way it was spelled by the poster. In this case its not needed because that's how the word is actually spelled.

    Please compose yourself.
    Only making a factual statement saying God-King when no one else uses it is pretty idiotic.

    Saying I'm lying when I'm not is calling someone a liar. I know this is hard for you to understand. My argument was not a lie I gave you the chain of events.

    Refreshing? No try embarrassing. This does nothing for the conservative movement or the GOP as a whole. Stay classy GOP stay classy.

    Gil what are you talking about? You responded to me as if I was talking to you when I was talking to rev. So I don't get the relevance of your post

    Ah I get what you meant. You're saying DP existed in 2005. I thought you were replying about the reaching part. Well I didn't know about DP so how would I post links in 2005 when I wasn't here then.

    Now, this is just an idiotic statement, folks. Name me one thing that the President has done where he has acted in concert with another individual, group or government body in an effort to remove power from Congress or bring irreputable harm to this country? Show me one law or provide indisbutable evidence that the President has actually weakened this country?

    Don't give me the weak economy angle; that was happening before he became President.

    Don't go on about him apologizing for this country's misteps; I happen to think we did step on some foreign political toes. His foreign "political capital" is stronger internationally than his predecessors.

    You can try the intelligence community/terrorist detainee angle, but it really wouldn't fly considering the debate is still out on what our intellegience agencies were really doing and how lawful or unlawful their activities were. And as for the terrorist detainee angle, GW Bush wanted to release some, if not all, of them as well but he, too, ran into stumbling blocks and couldn't find a practical means to do it.

    So, where do you see treasonist activities conducted by our President?
