    BS. That is just a game. You are not materially worse off because you lost. You can quit the team if it so bothers you. Others can actually root against you, so that your team fails, likely because they want the other team to win, and its no big deal. Need I go on pointing out the fail of your analogy ?

    If we new what actually worked we would all just do it, funny no president congress etc etc has figured it out? LOL
    Strawman. This is about whether or not Obama's "success" makes things worse in the opinion of many of us. It is that simple.

    The goal is for AMERICA to win, Ill NEVER root against that because it makes no sense. Will i disagree on how we COULD win, of course but to root against him is to root against winning, no thanks, ill never od that to any president.

    Basically if I believed in things 1,2, and 3 and the president believed in things 4,5 and 6 I might not like it but what if 4,5,and 6 gets us the win? Then I am HAPPY because WE WON lol

    Of I guess I could just hope for the worse, root against us winning and assume that my way is the only way forget the rest of america.
    I want Obama to be a one-term President as well. That would be more fail for him.

    Why? I'd rather read one well-considered and -written post than all the rest of the thread combined.

    which is sort of the opposite of what you seem to be suggesting.
    Well you know what? If you're not with us, you're against us. Thanks for hating America.

    HAHAHAH. I love this Republican propaganda, it's fun ****.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I think the most interesting point is that it's "UnAmerican" to hope for a failure in policies that would be detrimental to the country.

    I root for a different plan, not for one where I know its result makes us worse. My opinions are very valuable to me, btw.



    Football ? Yeah, that is dumb. Why such a struggle in realizing that God gave you a brain, and that combined with experience, some wisdom is expected ?


    Whether Obama has good intentions or not matters not a twit. If someone has a plan, that being a succession of steps, that you believe will end up making you and your family worse off, you don't just sign up and hope for the better.

    I choose to not be a lemming.
    if you say so but we are talking about the president of our country, last I checked nobobdy knows how to run our government perfectly so rooting for YOUR OPINION of what will fail is rooting for AMERICA to fail LOL

    You are in fact being a lemming, a partisan one.
    The problem is you are speaking in absolutes when there are none, we survied 4-8 years of other presidents that people thought sucked and DID do damage I still didnt root for them to lose, I rooted for them to change or to compromise NOT TO LOSE because their lose is my loss and Im not dumb enough to think in absolutes in situations there arent any in.

    Like I said if everybody shared your logic the earth would still be flat and we'd be living in the dark ages.

    nope no dramatic hyperbole partisan here

    You do realize that saying "his failure is our failure" is an absolute statement, right? Also, so is "rooting for YOUR OPINION of what will fail is rooting for AMERICA to fail"
