    He has talked to leno, more than he has talked to his commander in A-stan.

    He thinks its more important to grab credit for the olympics than it is to deal with the wars.
    again, complaining about nothing.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Your question is without any basis in fact. He is a stateman and a damn good one. I'm not sure how you can say he hasn't done any "work." That's absurd.
    This is the first managerial/policy-making job that Obama has ever held, and it is as our CEO. It's quite a different role than "statesman."

    The lives of the troops are "nothing" to you?




    He is sending a message to the troops, that the olympics are more important than they are....

    I worried that he would believe that figurehead/speechmaker would be his perception of what the job is, but frankly, I think that CEO means a LOT of administrative work.

    I voted for him, but it was and is a worry.

    My problem is that it doesn't seem like Obama has done much at all. All I see the man doing is giving speeches on this and that. Trying to pass some horrible healthcare plan which is only a play to the insurance companies. Meanwhile, we're still in Iraq, still in Afghanistan, Gitmo ain't closed, still doing domestic spying, expanding the Patriot Act, etc. Nothing is changing, nothing is getting done, nothing is moving forward. I'm sick of it. All we get each and every time is bigger, more intrusive government. Powers put together in such a way as it can siphon money from all of us, give it to whomever their [government's] buddies are at the time, and work in such horrible ways as to never be able to benefit the People.

    And I also honestly don't believe Obama would be in Copenhagen right now if it wasn't Chicago trying to get the games.

    That's progress, I tell you. I mean, they've practically evacuated Gitmo. And, torture is done. Except, of course, in those hidden prisons overseas.

    And the patriot act? That's all ancient history.

    Funny rev i did a search of your posts on afghanistan from a year ago and beyond and didnt see you creating multiple threads about bush going on vacation while people were asking for more troops in afghanistan. None when generals were complaining about his lack of care for afghanistan. No complaints when troops were dying in afghanistan and bush attended the olympics. Yeah just more concern trolling and "selective outrage" from the good reverend
