    No...actually it demonstrates how wacky and out of touch the right-wing has become.

    ANY example will be sufficient..
    Just take the health care reform situation for example, Not only did he remove both the Robust Public Option and Medicare Buy In from the bill, He also had a televised summit where he took on many Republican ideas to add in the bill that he passed.

    Really? How many Conservative principles were added to Obama's health care bill?

    There were actually several, including the insurance mandate.

    Can insurance company's now compete across state borders, which would in turn lower costs? Or was that conservative principle excluded from the health care bill?

    Re: Obama to Unveil Offshore Oil Drilling Plans

    Obamas campaign promises:

    The Current Situation

    The country that harnesses the power of clean, renewable energy will lead the 21st century. For too long, politicians in Washington have been beholden to special interests, but no longer. Our new, responsible energy policy recognizes the relationship between energy, the environment, and our economy and leverages American ingenuity to put people back to work, fight global warming, increase our energy independence and keep us safe.
    The Solution

    *
    Chart a new energy future:

    President Obama has a comprehensive plan to chart a new energy future by embracing alternative and renewable energy, ending our addiction to foreign oil, addressing the global climate crisis and creating millions of new jobs that can’t be shipped overseas.
    *
    Invest in clean, renewable energy:

    To achieve our goal of generating 25 percent of our energy from renewable sources by 2025, we will make unprecedented investments in clean, renewable energy – solar, wind, biofuels, and geothermal power.
    *
    Fight climate change:

    We will invest in energy efficiency and conservation, two sure-fire ways to decrease deadly pollution and drive down demand. And we will hold special interests accountable as we finally work to address climate change and its potentially catastrophic effects.



    Here was Obamas stand on energy before he was elected. No where does it say he would never allow offshore drilling. Looks like he is keeping his promises to me.
    "This Administration will constantly strive to promote an ownership society in America. We want more people owning their own home. It is in our national interest that more people own their own home. After all, if you own your own home, you have a vital stake in the future of our country."" GWB

    I just threw up. Reading Obama's stance on global warming and Cap and Trade makes me sick. The narcissistic ignorance oozing from Obama is a threat to us all, and our very way of life.
