    If he does, you can bet your last dollar his minions and the media would do everything they can to keep it from the American public; OR, they will spin it as so imperative, and of course DIFFERENT from what Bush did, as being in the national interest.

    After all, they are trying to use their majorities in the Congress to shove Government Healthcare down our throats regardless of the FACT that it will do NOTHING to improve our healthcare and bury the American taxpayer into trillions more in deficits which will have to be carried on the backs of the American taxpayer.

    You just cannot fabricate the level of ignorance represented by this President and this Democrat run Congress; the lies, the distortions, the fabrications and the efforts to continue to demagogue and fear monger.

    I doubt highly that Obama is so morally bankrupt that he would authorize engaging in waterboarding or other form of torture. If he did, that would pretty much seal it in my book. But Obama has come out strongly against these reprehensible tactics and rightfully so.

    Why not, he's followed every other Bush foreign policy to the tee including and beyond those policies the Left wanted Bush impeached for.

    He came out "strongly" against other policies deemed 'immoral' as well but he implemented those policies anyways and yet, it's not hurt him so, your statement here isn't convincing.

    Obama's foreign policy has not been GWB's "to the tee". There are many things that Obama has done that I do not agree with, but to try to argue he is identical to GWB is ridiculous.

    Can you provide some metal to this or...should I take your word for it?

    Cuz as far as foreign policies are concerned, minus the waterboarding issue...he's exactly identical.

    Woa. A gamer!

    Patriots Act, warrantless wirtetapping, following the Iraqi SOFA agreement to the tee, surging in Afghanistan, the rendition of foreign prisoners, the expansion of the prison at Bagram, the fact that he argued in court to detain enemy combatants without rights or even the ability to challenge their own detentions, Gitmo remains open, he continues to refuse to negotiate with Hamas or Hezbollah unless the recognize Israel, and continues to allow Israel to build Settlements on the West Bank and sell them weaponry.

    Exact same policies, your turn.

    Biden would not be a potent executive. He's a diplomat and a student of foreign politics, not a president. It's not like either of the VP that succeeded those two were particularly brilliant, either.
    www.thecaffeinemachine.com - looking for main-page political writers, so if anyone is interested send a PM (apologies if that violates any rules)

    Doesn't matter what kind of job they did or he would do, the USA voted them into office knowing they would be elevated if the top guy took the dirt nap.

    Anywho, Biden couldn't do a worse job than Prez Doofus and would probably be much more entertaining.
