    I find it funny that you take Poll with a straight face. Hell during bush term, I never took polls with a straight face. I always take them with a grain of slat.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Sorry but you are a hypocrit. You cant apply one standard to one president and not to another just because he happens to be a right wing hero of the moment.

    People are claiming that Obama is a failure and using his approval rating as evidence.

    Fine, then that same method must be able to be used for all other presidents.

    If it can not be used to say Reagan was a failure then it can not be used for Obama.. fair is fair.

    The Biography has approximately 9 or so uses of the word "promise" in various forms. Obama has approximately 500.

    The Messiah is spawning an economy that's going to keep losing jobs....because he's repeating "the mistakes of the past", ie, socialism, instead of repeating Reagan's policies of success, ie, capitalism.
    Yeah, twenty two million jobs at Burger King.

    What's the approval rating for congress? I would guess about 15%.

    No, I say the Messiah is a failure and use the failed economy and his other failures as evidence.

    Reagan was a success because he had the right ideas and implemented them.

    The Messiah doesn't have any ideas, he's a community organizer, not a leader of men. His presidency is going to be the failure all his promises told us it was going to be.

    Revisionist: look thyself in the mirror.

    Reagan promised 4 things:

    1. Cut taxes. He did; closed loopholes and brought the highest rate from 70% to 28%

    2. Reduce burdens on the people (regulations). He did. Note one of his first orders was to eliminate oil price controls. What happened? No more oil hysteria. Prices went down.

    3. Strengthen the Military. Put the Evil Empire into a race it... lost. Had a vision to defend the nation with a protective shield. It works... even though people thought he was nuts.

    4. Cut Spending/deficits. Democrats controlled congress and kept spending... as government revenues soared due to lower unemployement, investment, competition for jobs. As JFK noted... a rising tide lifts all boats.

    5. All with the goal of an American Renaissance, and focus on our security.

    4 of 5 is pretty good.
