    They have proof that the American Dream is alive and kicking.

    Of course, in this case it might be kicking, where it hurts, but what the Hell. It is still full of life.

    Shorter: Everything Obama has ever said or done is the worst thing in the history of the Republic, no dissent permitted.

    Why ask the question when you will flame any answer that differs from your own?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I'm growing weary of the *-tard crap. It's juvenile and adds nothing to the conversation other than confirming the user's bias.

    (Not directed at you, directed at users of the term)
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I just get really tired of the Left/Right stuff. We are all people, can't we just try and get along? And really, a politician is a politician, left, right, center. I don't know how MUCH difference that really makes in the big picture. The key, for me, is to get a president who actually CARES about the country and knows what will work versus what is just unrealistic ideology.

    As a self-identified "libertarian", you should be looking at daddy Bush above all others as the worst. He's the one who escalated the War on Drugs, ushered in a Drug Czar and probably single-handily assaulted personal freedom more than any other president since Abe Lincoln forced Americans to kill each other.

    Just saying.

    Actually, I would place that legacy on Reagan. Bush I just continued it.

    He's not a good President, no. He may have done some good things, but he's been more bad than good. I think he's a terrible leader. Likeable guy, but terrible leader.

    Fine line on when it actually began, but Bush definitely played a major role.
    As early as 1982, Vice President George H. W. Bush and his aides began pushing for the involvement of the CIA and U.S. military in drug interdiction efforts.
    As for declaring war on American citizens, that began just as Reagan was stepping out.
    The Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) was originally established by the National Narcotics Leadership Act of 1988,[34][35] which mandated a national anti-drug media campaign for youth, which would later become the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign.[36] The director of ONDCP is commonly known as the Drug czar,[15] and it was first implemented in 1989 under President George H. W. Bush,[37] and raised to cabinet-level status by Bill Clinton in 1993.[citation needed] These activities were subsequently funded by the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act of 1998.[38][39] The Drug-Free Media Campaign Act of 1998 codified the campaign at 21 U.S.C. 1708.
    War on Drugs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Either way, for a self-identified Libertarian to argue that two recent D presidents were the worst while ignoring this assault on our freedom by a conservative president (or two) is rather telling. No?
