    Can anyone help me out. What has Obama ever done that you think that I, as a conservative should agree with?
    I thought this was one, but maybe not.

    Things you as a conservative may agree with(I dislike "should", you are the only one to judge that):

    Tax cuts for individuals.
    Tax breaks for small businesses
    Aggressively pursued the war on terror in Afghanistan.

    There are I am sure more, but those off the top of my head. However, I do point out that since conservatives and liberals have different visions on how to make the country better, most of what he does is not going to be liked by you or other conservatives, in the same way I disliked most of what Bush and Reagan did.
    Yes I agree with those things if he would do them on a larger scale. He needs to give tax cuts to small business not tax breaks. He needs to do something about the HC bill that is holding back small business.
    I mostly approve of the way he is handling the wars.

    Scarecrow is often wrong and way off base, do you really want to be looked at in the same way? I would hold that the people you describe aren't even likely to vote, because they'll be too busy in gang clashes and other criminal activity.

    If the tea-baggers make a big deal of of this, it will backfire....We are NOT a nation of bigots and racists. True, the percentage is higher than it should be.....
    Extremem conservative has nothing to do with it. Indulging in the use of the word 'tea bagger' puts you on the same level as Scarecrow with the ignorant word choices he displays. Congratulations.

    Got any facts to back it up?

    Nope.

    You haven't even defined often, even.

    Unlike you, I process all events as a libertarian. That, my friend, is as American as it gets.

    BTW, how many years did you serve before you got your DD214?

    No.

    The reality is that on Friday he spoke to make the muslims he grew up with and respect happy, and on Saturday he spoke the back-pedal words he knew on Friday he was going to have to speak to appease those silly people in America who might still be stupid enough to vote for a Democrat in November and the Democrats running for office in November, too.

    The concept of tolerance and respect means the terrorists pretending this monument to 9-11 is a expression of sensitivity should concede that they're not wanted THERE, and graciously MOVE to some other less sensitive location.

    If the Messiah in the White House had been a real American he would have been sensitive to American sensititivies and said as much on Friday.

    Yet once again, the Messiah has uttered another statement around the golf shoe jammed in his mouth.

    And once again, the gullible people Lenin fondly called "useful idiots" are doing their best to give the Messiah and the terrorists a free pass.

After all its not AL Queada, Taliban or some other terrorist group building the mosque,so them building a mosque near ground zero is not a monument to terrorists. That said I think the idiots who oppose the mosque will be apathetic about the issue by November to no longer even give a rats ass about the ground zero mosque. Now if this happened a week before November then it might hurt the Dems because the outrage would still be too fresh.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
