    Even the dummies are now figuring him out.

    Gallup had this one result that all the corporate press of is braying about. The next day Pew had poll results showing no difference from prior polls. Not much press about the second poll. Goes to show that the press is only covering the stories they want to cover and they are so desperate for an Obama scandal that they are making stuff up out of whole cloth.

    About 60% of Americans approve of Obama’s using Prism to keep us all safe. Look how well LBJ used his paper database to get Congress to vote just how he wanted to keep us safe from the Vietcong commies who wanted us to have to queue for bread and only have one brand of toothpaste.

    Obama can do MUCH more with Prism to keep us safe.

    Low information voters got us a low information president. “Jeffrey Osborne, anyone?”

    If this were Bush, he’d already have been impeached for the same offenses. They’re still treating him with kid gloves.

    Benghazi is the same as the Contra scandle in the 80’s.

    The Iran Contra scandal? The scandal where some of Reagan’s staff members sold weapons to our enemies to earn under-the-table money to secretly and illegally fund Nicaraguan rebels?

    I see you still haven’t looked up the definition of socialism. Good for you. You’ve made up your mind, and you’re sticking to it.

    Never liked the program. Don’t expect I ever will. I recognize this is one more reason for Obama-haters to point to as the object of their wrath, but do they really think that a President Romney wouldn’t be doing the exact same thing?

    Really? That’s your excuse for voting for the wrong person? Because you speculate, after the fact, that he may have done the same thing in similar circumstances?

    That’s rich.

    Project much . . .

    Honestly, I don’t believe he would have. Why? Because he would be crucified by the media and strung up in the public. Not only that, but he’d lose all independent and libertarian support, and would certainly lose the WH in his second-term election. Not only that, but his style of politics and management are very different from BHO.

    Nice picture of Ambassador Kosh.

    You may very well be right. I am only speculating. On the other hand, the program was already in progress, and so Mr. Romney would have had to choose to stop the program. I did not sense that he would do that, for the exact same reason as Obama did not….because he would expect that the program would help identify terrorist plans before they could be carried out, whether that is true, or proper justification, or not.

    @D PB

    Please see my comment to Wraithkin as partial answer. As to other specifics.

    You’re right. We all offer opinions here, and much of it is speculation. And after all, what is voting if not speculation? You are voting for or against someone that you BELIEVE will do what you do or do not want. You don’t find out until after the person takes office.

    And it is not the reason I voted for “the wrong person”. I have enumerated those significant reasons enough in the past, and will not re-post them unless you request.

    No, the “Patriot Act” is not cool, and shouldn’t be used, but it’s there, and “intelligence” folks insist it has been useful to a degree. But, absolute power DOES corrupt absolutely, as Cheney proved to a lessor extent, but remains willing to go “all the way”, by proxy.

    The fun of democracy is not winning, it is trying to win people over. As fun as it is to yell party slogans and plug ears, it is absolutely non-conductive to thought.

    If you can’t win support for your cause it is either

    A) because it is not good for the larger portion of the population

    B) you argued it poorly (far more common)

    If you don’t want LIV you should focus on informing them, if they disagree with what you say in spite of information, refer to previous.

    And keep in mind that some things are absolute interpretation, for example which is better

    2% wage growth / 0% inflation/ 4% GDP growth.

    You can view inflation as a drag on either, Wage growth being a catalyst for GDP and that GDP does not influence it, or that GDP when it grows at a large rate can significantly increase earnings.

    All have had legitimate histories in various countries at various times. all views can be correct.
