    And yet, all I see you doing is bashing the current president.

    Apparently following the policies and norms of the past string of presidents makes only the current liable for bashing and exempts all the rest.

    This thread is little more then a circle jerk.

    Past adminsitrations get their share of the blame. That does not take the current holder of the office any less to blame for what is going on now,

    It is getting tiresome to keep hearing people bemoan the problems left them.

    Not much of what are today's problems were unknown prior to the election. I did not hear then Obama saying don't blame me if I can't fix what is wrong.

    The reason he won is largely because Americans felt they were on the wrong track!!

    The reason why he will lose is because Americans still believe we are on the wrong track.

    The reason Obama won? That'd be the Black Vote.

    I don't know about that. Palin was the anti-independent. You should see how she fared against Biden in independent votes. It's ridiculous how lop sided it becomes when you bring in the vice president candidates.

    Record black turnout, and over 75% of them voted for Obama. And they say Whitey is a bigot!

    You know what I love about this thread is the hypocracy (sic).

    An idiot with the initials of GWB was acting prez for 8 years, and he lit cigars with 100 dollar bills to finance the real prez's former company to rebuild Iraq, and conservatives did not say one thing about it. In fact, they turned their head to it. This same Prez and GOP Congress took a budget surplus and squandered it and started the current deficit. Were the conservatives up in arms?

    Now had the conservatives been all up in arms with any prez over spending your tax dollars, I'd give them the respect of being truly concerned with financial conservatism. However, instead they overlook the simple fact that any administration, Dem or GOP, uses our tax dollars as monopoly money to advocate the things that their followers desire.

    The problem with this country is not the conservatives or liberals. The problem is that people cannot reason or agree on anything because they allow political parties and talk show hosts to guide their every thought. And, as a result, they become lemmings and allow fear to engulf them.
