    He clearly has little regard for human life (double tap drone strikes). Or for basic human rights (Gitmo). Or for the Constitution (blanket spying of Americans, executing Americans without trial).

    Not sure if he is a bully.

    But he is definitely a dickhead and an incompetent POTUS.
    ???

    That sounds pretty competent.

    Oh, you think competent just means letting you do whatever you want, completely, and helping you out whenever you need it. Oh...yeah, he's not competent at that. Thankfully.

    Ahhh, no.

    I think a competent POTUS follows the Constitution at ALL times, runs a balanced budget at ALL times (except during a declared war against another country(s)), does not commit acts of war on a weekly basis (drone strikes on other countries are technical acts of war), helps those Americans who truly need help and not just want it AND stays the heck out of the economy's way and let's it run itself.


    I should know better then to read people's posts who are on my ignore lists (like you) just because I am bored or curious.


    Have a nice day.

    You should get that ignore list problem worked out. It doesn't seem to be working. You'd hate to see the posts of someone you disagree with, but can't competently argue against.

    Re: Is Obama A Bully?

    Do the people worrying about Obama being a bully actually realize that he's a politician and that politics is about the exercise of power?

    Or is this all your first day here?

    This is a sadly common attitude among the American Left, I've found. Corruption, greed, and general nastiness are all just "A-okay" as far as they're concerned... Just so long as the person responsible for them happens to have a capital "D" next to their name on CSPAN.

    Ted Kennedy? He had more mob connections than you can shake a stick at and very likely straight up murdered some poor girl early in his career just to get out of a bad relationship, yet the Left upholds him as being some kind of damn patron saint to this very day.

    Mitt Romney, on the hand? He was demonized because (Horror of horrors! ) he happened to have fired a few people over the course of his thirty something year long career in business.

    "Moral high ground," my ass...

    Exercising power is neither corrupt nor greedy and as your post demonstrates, the right excels at general nastiness.

    Is this your first day?

    Using that power to attempt to silence political opponents and potential critics alike while simultaneously going out of one's way to subvert the principles and boundaries of the office they were elected to in the first place (all of which the Obama Administration has been accused of over the course of this thread) is the very definition of "corrupt and greedy."

    I'm also glad to see that you didn't even try to refute any of the points I raised.

    No, not my first day, and what does a bully do? He exercises his power over the weak and timid, those he knows he can easily defeat, but when faced with real opposition he's the coward of the county....

    Sounds like Obama to me...

    Do people commenting on what people are worrying about actually take the time to read why they say what they said or do they all just make knee-jerk, reactionary comments because someone besmirched their immortal beloved?

    Being accused of being greedy and corrupt is not the same as actually being greedy and corrupt.

    And I won't be even trying to refute your accusations for two reasons:

    1) I don't want to derail the thread. There are already plenty of threads about these delusional "scandals". If you want to know what I think of them, you can read some of those threads (which I'm happy to see you haven't participated in)

    2) I'm a firm believer in the principle of "When an opponent digs themselves into a hole, don't hand them a shovel."

    Ahh, "real" opposition.

    I see you're very comfortable with the "No True Scotsman" fallacy
