    If I could like this post a thousand times, I would. Turtle's obsession with Obama's AA status is both obnoxious and repulsive.

    There is no arena in the world in which that would not be considered a landslide. An epic landslide of negative opinions of Obama. To put that in clear perspective, every eight or nine pages, no more, somebody came along and voted "Yes."

    The question is Why? Obama's not going to get any better.
    If you think this poll is representative of anything except the feelings of a handful of DP posters, You Fail Statistics Forever.

    what is obsessive is how upset the Obama fan boys get when I point out the obvious.

    Obama's been upside down in presidential approval since October '13. ( rassmussen.com ) The poll in question represents DP. Any poll however is representative of a handful of people and when polls are positive, Obama supporters are the first to use them to their benefit and when negative are the first to pan them. Reality is, and I think it's generally accepted, Obama didn't have a very good 2013.
    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.

    Why? It seems central to Obama's getting where he got today.

    "He [Harry Reid] was wowed by Obama's oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama -- a 'light-skinned' African American 'with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one".

    "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man." --Joe Biden on Barack Obama

    “If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman of any color, he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.” Geraldine Ferraro

    There ya to. No apply the same critical thinking skills to the death of Bin Laden, and you'll lay to rest that particular conspiracy.

    The Right is obviously race-obsessed, if they are still bringing up those old quotes from 2008 and whining about Obama's grades from who knows when.

    It was the Left who said all those things, including this. “If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman of any color, he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.” Geraldine Ferraro

    I only quoted Democrats. Barrack Obama won the Presidential nomination for the same reason he won the Nobel Peace Prize. "Old quotes" from 2008 is just five years ago.

    Unless you haven't been paying attention, the debt run up occurred in the present administration, not the Bush administration.

    My understanding is that the national debt added in this administration has nearly equaled all the national debt accumulated by all the other administrations combined.

    This seems to me as an alarming sign that something needs to be done. Obama hasn't done it, nether has the Democratic Senate. He's not promoted it, nether has the Democratic Senate. He and the Democratic Senate have shutdown the government to try and prevent spending decreases. How is this not the height of fiscal irresponsibility?

    Yes. But...McCain would have made it worse and Romney seemed to think attacking Iran was an essential part of the American defense strategy.
    Romney Wants To Attack Iran To Prevent A Dirty Bomb - The Daily Beast

    And, there's more than one source saying this stuff.
    Why Does Mitt Romney Want to Bomb Iran? | The Nation

    So, Obama is clearly the best of the available options. I know I'm not ready to go to war with Iran. Who's next for the Hawks? North Korea?
    much agreement.
    disagree on Afganistan, where Obama is being sucked into a long term presence, even after 'AQ Central' (Pakistan) has been significantly degraded.
    All we ever had to do there was go after AQ, and not buy into Obama's "surge/no surge" where he compromised on the escalation,
    and at the same time announcing a withdrawl date.

    Can't split the baby in 2 in war, and a simple counter-terrorism strategy would have been fine, instead of nationbuilding Afg.

    without a doubt Mccain would have been worse, the man is a rabid war dog, and gawd only knows where we'd be now.
    Remember this one?
