There is no reason to suddenly make the Obama Administration personally responsible for a hallmark of U.S. policy; that is like blaming a single Cold War president for the entire Cold War.
    You have to admit that we had few expectations of Bush in his first year, where he snoozed up until 9/11, then launched us into an unnecessary war.

    We have enormous expectations of President Obama.

    I'm not knocking you specifically, Rev.

    I'm knocking Oprah and other members of the media as well as politicians for their manipulative strategies.

    I'm also being critical of all of us (including myself) for allowing ourselves to be led by them in the pursuit of the almighty vote/ratings boost.

    Depends on which war you are referring to. Initially, the War in Afghanistan was conducted reasonably; the Taliban were the material base of Al Queda and as such attacking them for 9/11 was justifiable, and we made use of already existing rebel groups to accomplish the core of our military aims, thereby establishing a greater sense of legitimacy among the Afghans (absent in Iraq) and sparing NATO troops and resources for other projects, such as tracking down Al Queda networks and agents. However, the Iraq War was a massive drain on our resources and energies, completely at cross-purposes with the War on Terror to the point Al Queda actually started exploiting growing anti-Western sentiment in that country to drum up recruits, weaken our military, and undermine our national consciousness.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    He's clearly a D.

    No hope, no change. He's spent us into oblivion and continues to urge Congress to pass Omnibus bills. Heathcare makes no one happy and doesn't address the cost of healthcare with still millions left wanting coverage. He's done little other than spend spend spend and continues to spend. Besides... an F would be the second coming of Lucifer or the Anti-Christ and while Obama's **** can bad, he's not Anti-Christ bad.... yet.
    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.

    He is also just the same **** as the previous administration, only slight changes.
    Our President is not our dictator, some people seem to think that he is.

    I will assign no grade to our President, Its beneath the dignity of the office.
    I will give the American people a failing grade.
    Too many are uneducated.
    Too many do not care.
    Our political precess requires involvement by intelligent men.
    Here, we have a shortage.
    Unfortunately, Mr Obama's appear is limited, no fault of his.
    And I see no JFK on the horizon.

    So then, Obama is not a dignified man, since you know, he graded himself?

    Re: Grade Obama so far!

    I gave an F based on one factor alone: Transparency, or lack thereof

    why isnt he using the bully pulpit to get the ****ing dems to stop drafting legislation behind closed doors, Saturday night votes, on bills nobody can read or understand

    THIS COUNTRY NEEDS AN ENEMA but Obama is the buttplug
