He hurts my heart every time he apologizes for America, craps on our friends and bows to our enemies. I fear for our country when he says sometimes you can make too much money. I think I'm living in an upside down world when he says that Muslim outreach by NASA should be a top priority. Where is HIS outreach to the American people! He doesn't respect me and I have no respect for him or his policies.
    He says he will stand with the Muslims if the political winds get ugly. Well I'm sorry, but I want a president who loves this country and it's people. (all of it's people and not just people of color and people on the left)
    After reading this, I would hazard to guess that a little disdain has been continuously reinforced and drastically exacerbated due to gobbling up a confirmatory diet of divisive rhetoric.

    You brought up the war (link and quote follow this to enhance your memory); so I suppose it's OK to throw out such comments, but not OK for someone to issue a correction and a bit of historical perspective?

    That's how Libs become libs. They ignore history.

    Clinton outsourced our foreign policy in Iraq to the UN.
    How many resolutions did we need? Obviously 16 were not enough for Bill Clinton.

    Bill Clinton wagged his finger at the terrorists claiming he would hunt them down and make them pay for their actions.
    Did not happen. He did shoot a few missiles into a hillside and destroy a non-threatening pill factory in Sudan though. G'donya mate.

    His UN sanctions scheme kept a madman in power, resulted in the death of 500,000 children and an equal amount of adults. 1 million individuals, and for what? These people were still slaves to a madman (of course Michael Moore thought otherwise)
    and a threat to the region and the United States.

    At least the Iraqi's are free, we don't have to worry about Iraq or Saddam as a threat. Freedom and security often comes with costs. The Iraqi's before Bush were paying a heavy price with nothing to show for it.

    The next UN scheme Clinton supported produced one of the most massive corruption scandals, and this with a despot who lost a war, used and had WMD, kicked out Inspecteurs de la UN. The Oil for Food Program.

    Without this massive corruption scheme, it might have been possible to avert war. Is it not plausible Saddam believed he had bought off enough higher ups in the UN and their representative governments? You know... cause-effect? False sense of security?

    After 911 it wasn't a "wrong war" based on the facts we had. Just look at the Democrat leadership pre and post 911. Look at what our allies stated.

    It is difficult to nail Obi as an overt racist, but he certainly does have a racial chip on his shoulder.

    1. Tolerating the slurry and poison spewed from the mouth of his mentor Reverend Wright for 20-years. Rev. Wright awarded Louis (anti-Semite) Farrakhan a Lifetime Achievement Award.

    Not exactly two people that have been quite about race or stoking racial tensions.

    2. Cambridge police incident. This did not warrant presidential intervention, yet he lept in with both feet without looking at the facts first.

    3. The people he hired and their actions. van Jones... Eric "You Cowards" Holder...

    Here's the issue you're going to run into, and I think both sides need to remember this...

    There are very few forms of "obvious" racists. You don't see these kind of scraps starting up because one guy in a clan robe called a black guy the N-Word. You see it because Obama talks about his mom being a "typical white person" or someone suggesting Mark Cuban is a racist for saying "Thug" because its a "code word". Those situations are what cause up a stir and the fact is, in both of them, a lot of it is based on the perception of the situation by the viewer in question and shaped by their experiences and views. There's no magical check list for the vast majority of potential "racist" things that one can check off going "Yep, they breached line a, b, and c...racist comment".

    "Legitimate" example is completely subjective and that's the big issue. And both sides forget this at times when they're dealing with a potential instance of racism, with their responses generally determined by whether they think its a definite case or not.

    Actually it is part of the stimulus package. It helped put a lot of people to work, making signs, installing signs, etc, as well as providing transparency as to where the money is being spent.

    If you remember the banks spent a lot of the tarp money advertising how kind and wonderful they were.

    The two are very different. I think anytime someone shows a comparison of Hitler with either Obama or Bush shows a real evidence of being poorly educated about Hitler's Third Reich.
    Do these idiots really compare their problems that the Jews had in Hitler regime? What a bunch of spoiled little wimps. We are not facing the same problems as the people did under Hitler and nor are we suffering as some of the poorer third world countries but we have such soft bottom Americans that they feel it is worst for them.

    I wasn't here, but I was on other forums and I would certainly have something to say when someone played the Godwin card or when they made up stupid names that they thought were clever, but were really juvenile. I guess it all depends on your purpose for being on a forum...if it's to swoop in, poop all over the place and leave, then I guess participating in that kind of behavior is okay. However, if your purpose is to engage in constructive dialog and explain to people why you opposed the policies of Bush and Cheney, then comparing them to Hitler or calling Bush, "Dim Son" isn't really going to open up the discussion and certainly no one on the other side of the aisle is ever going to take what you post seriously - they'll write you off as a troll and update their ignore list - and rightly so.
