    That is certainly possible. It is also possible to graduate as a narrow minded dweeb.

    Sounds to me as if you had a bad college experience.

    Truth prevails. If you think critically there should be no fear in learning.

And the dictator charge against Obama does have some justification. If you have not noticed, now that Obama no longer has to worry about elections for the remainder of his second term, he is using executive orders on a massive scale to do what he cannot get congress to do. The legislative branch is not their to answer to the executive office's beck and calling. Obama is supposed to be running the executive branch. He is attemping to control both the executive and the legislative branch. That is not how representative government is supposed to work. What Obama is in effect telling the voters....."Don't bother voting for Senators and House members. If I don't get my way, I will bypass them with executive orders."




    The continued use of the race card by the left is so childish. I don't think anyone really cares what Obama's race is....they only care about the damage he is doing. And to be honest, I think it's the democrats who are afraid in regards to 2016. The only way the republicans can lose is if they nominate another geriatric RINO.
    I was a Republican most of my life, so you you would be wrong when you said I was one of the Bush haters. After he got out of office I've turned into a hater because I have learned how often he lied and how much damage those lies have done. But actually I voted for him in 2000.

    And stop with the executive orders nonsense, previous presidents have used it more than Obama.

    My own father in-law hates Obama for one reason only, he's black. He's in his 70's, an old time Republican. Racist as hell. Much of his generation is. So if you really believe no one cares about Obama's race you are being naive, or dishonest to the nth degree.

    What lies specifically?

    And stop with the executive orders nonsense, previous presidents have used it more than Obama.
    Which isn't the point. Its not the number but the substance of those orders. If a president only issues one executive order during his entire term and that order is to suspend the constitution, would you still be making the same argument?

    Sorry to hear about your racist family, but its not his political affiliation that makes him the way he is. I was married into a very liberal Irish Catholic family, who all voted democrat but used racist language like nothing I have ever heard.

    But sorry, I am not buying the "I used to be a republican, but left because they are lying racists" BS. It easy to lie around here and that is not an uncommon one.

    Golly gee, I went to college and know many others who also did, and we all must have been sick on Socialist Indoctrination Day.

    You can't make the numbers argument so now it's substance? How about this? If this Congress, especially the GOP House wasn't so childish, like voting to defund ACA 60 times, and so gridlocked then maybe the government would work like it suppose to.

    I never said there are no libs who are racists. I said to believe no one cares about Obama's race is naive, or flat out dishonest. And if you are continuing that argument then you are naive and/or dishonest too.

    BTW I also never said I left the GOP because they were lying racists. I said Bush lied and his lies caused us a lot of problems. I left the GOP for a whole bunch of reasons. Bush lies and 2003 war was just one reason. The biggest reason was the GOP's rabid defense of the banks and Wall Street after the 2008 crash.

    So what you have is typical liberal talking points. Right, you are some republican. Tell, me, did the evil Bush administration force the Clinton Administration to lie about WMD too?

    More liberal garbage. Pick up a copy of the Constitution and point to me the clause that empowers the president to do whatever he wants if congress is gridlocked. Let me save you some trouble: its not in there. You know what happens if congress and the president cant reach agreement? Nothing happens. That is how its supposed to be.



    I never said there are no libs who are racists. I said to believe no one cares about Obama's race is naive, or flat out dishonest. And if you are continuing that argument then you are naive and/or dishonest too.
    Are there republicans who voted against Obama because he is black? No. Republicans vote against Obama because he is a democrat. Are there liberals who voted against Obama because he is black. Absolutely. Are there liberals who voted for Obama because he is black? Absolutely. So it is liberals that are focused on skin color. But then again, race obsessed liberals are about as common as wealth obsessed liberals. Its practically a requirement.

    There are NO Republicans who voted against Obama? And this specious claim is your "evidence" that it's just "liberals" who are focused on skin color? Well, that's a pretty asinine argument.

    First of all, who cares what you think? Second, you cant read. Third, do you think republicans voted against Clinton and Gore and Kerry because they were black too? Or in your little dream world do you think Obama would have gotten 100% of the vote if his skin were a different color?

    I didn't say only liberals are racist. Apparently, neither you nor kobie can understand the English language very well. But I do agree completely with your second sentence. So we are making progress.
