    None of the above...

    The single biggest reason I will not vote for Obama is his attacks on civil liberties in this country. He had great rhetoric coming into 2008, but what happened? He signed an extension of the Patriot Act, was slick about adding provisions in the yearly NDAA legislation which said the military could arrest America citizens and they could be held indefinitely without the rights of trial or habaes corpus, allows drones to fly over American cities (youtube has one that was found over Chicago).

    His blatant disregard for our Constitutional rights should have everyone outraged, but a lot are apathetic or content because they fell it gives them security when that is an illusion.

    I think he and the DNC acted like bitches to much. They tried to rationalize with a side that was becoming increasingly irrational and obstructive. They of course are paying for that now, and they have four years to get their **** together or the dems will play just as nasty as they have been for the foreseeable future and they will lose.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Could that have been related to use by the Coast Guard on the Great Lakes? This is the first I have heard of it.

    Granted, Obama should have vetoed those bills, the fault still lies in the source. Remember, the Republicans wrote the defense bill. If we are to fire Obama over that, we should fire them as well.

    Just curious, you know that pretty much every President in the last century has **** on the Constitution no?
