    bet you he abuses it and uses it to spy on any one who says any thing bad about him (which at the end of 4 years should be everyone)

    Oh? So more personal insult is all you got. Wait...didn't you just bitch about that above? You gotta keep your hypocrisy under control, wait at least 3-4 posts before you contradict yourself.

    Awww. I see selective memory at work here. I most certainly rally against the Republocrats and the status quo with their big government agendas. You just like hyperbole and ignoring data to be able to distinguish. It's a symptom of hyper partisanship, maybe they'll discover a cure for that one day. I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya.

    I have little doubt that such systems would be abused. It's practically guaranteed that it will. Government sometimes just can't help but to act inappropriately.

    I doubt that. I think he'll use it to protect the country, just like Bush did.

    PBO hates America, so that probably won't happen. We're a mean and unjust country, remember?

    No, I don't think that's the case.

    Why did he go around the world on the apology tour?

    Because he made the rational calculation that it would be easier for his administration to win concessions from foreign nations if he presented an image of his administration breaking from the policies that said nations had previously expressed disagreement with.

    Those nations are all ruled by dictators. Let common sense prevail for a moment and ask why anyone care if those nations disagreed with our policies. Their disagreement should be considered a positive reaction. PBO's government has given visas to the worst dictators in our time, yet refused a visa for a legal and lawful president of a democratically governed nation. There's something very wrong with that picture.

    If that's the case the the US and China should not be on friendly terms at all. That place is terrible, Commie governments always are. Yet all sorts of people have buddied up to China.
