    It's certainly a component. The facade of innocence behind it is rather phony too.

    Personally I would bet that they keep using "Hussain" because they know it drives the otherside crazy.

    Due to the fight needed on every step of progress, I gave him a B, on all areas except military spending and the Patriot Act, on which I give him an F.

    I would say a C-. Everything good he has done if it were a campaign promise was very washed down and he was not good at rallying the democrats when they had a super majority, a period he could have gotten quite a bit done. In this aspect, Bush and nearly every president of my lifetime other than maybe Bush Sr. has been better than Obama as president. On the flipside he has done quite a bit of good, but also has the foreign policy of a mainstream conservative.

    In terms of leading their own parties? No I do not. George W Bush was damn good at leading the GOP and getting them to act, Bush Sr. while I am not 100% sure, I would say not so much.

    In terms of overall effectiveness of their policies and what they did for the country.

    I do not judge Obama against previous presidents quite yet. I was referring to their leadership within their own party, Obama has been the worst yet in that area, however in many areas he has been the best yet so far...the bad thing about Obama's policies and laws is their true effects won't be felt until after his presidency, much like Reagan. I think much of what the other 3 in my lifetime had done had immediate effects.

    Re: Your Grade for Obama

    To be honest I think Obama was favored over Hillary in the Democrat primaries because Hillary had a much stronger personality and sense of leadership. Obama is a charismatic puppet for the Democrat party and they know that. Obama envisioned a UHC system but caved into the system that was passed because more moderate Democrats did not want UHC but merely insurance reform.

    Re: Your Grade for Obama

    I would have voted for Hillary; I was disappointed when Obama was nominated. Not as disappointed as I was after he was inaugurated, but disappointed nonetheless.
