    There ya go, folks! The leader of the free world and the supposed smartest President we’ve ever had with the most transparent administration America has ever had. As he said, “We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for”

    You know, an absolute constant stream of nothing but negativity towards our current president does not lend itself to a great deal of respectability of the posts and ideology of the ultra conservatives here.

    Even with the many evils of the last administration, the president then was never as vilified as you people vilify President Obama.

    And no, most of us that at least try to take a more even handed attitude do not worship him either. And in fact as a true Christian I do not worship any man except my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and God Almighty himself. President Obama like all other Presidents has his faults and failings, just as he has had his good side also. But of course, you ultra conservatives are incapable of recognizing that simple fact, even though evidently from the elections, the American people in general are so capable!!

    The NSA has been about the same since 2002. So Bush, jr and Obama would seem to be doing the exact same thing. And you think, just because they’re doing the exact same thing, there’s a similarity?


    When Bush, jr was watching everything we were doing, he was like a father, watching over his sleeping children, keeping them safe as they slept peacefully.


    When Obama does it, it’s salacious snooping on us, peeping at us in our bedrooms.


    Anyone who can’t see the difference is clearly suffering from deuteranopia.

    I walked down the street and saw pictures of bush with swastika’s carved in his forehead… um no this is merely turn about is fair play and still much more civil than much of what I saw then. still not right to behave like a idgit but still much more civil. He at least has the media defending him every breath the other had nothing more than silence from those corners unless it was them attacking as well.

    I don’t know, let us ask the NSA about your golf score vs the other free Nations leaders golf score. i am sure your handicap is better then most of theirs. That could be something.

    Robert (and you as well Michael) you seem to think that becasue Bush did it well that makes it ok. Do you remember the campaign beginning for Obama? Do you remember the points that boosted his campaign? Here are some of them:

    He was going to change the way business was don in DC. Lobbyists…not in his admin. Transparent? Oh yeah clear to air everything on CNN all bills read by the people before being considered…yep Gonna get rid of those evil tax cuts, going to close that terrorist factory Gitmo, Yep, gonna unite the country with his fabulous leadership abilities. All the world will love us now that HE is the Prez…..

    Now tell me what was it the Bush did that you hate so much? Give money to his buddies. The Patriot Act? The multiple war front? Those are things I didn’t like too. Why do you think Obama got such a victory? His rhetoric about “change” because we were all tired of the way our government was working.

    Now while citing all that, tell me what is different. Fast and Furious? Benghazi? Syria? IRS targeting citizens of different ideology than his?

    And the health care law that was supposed to – according to all the things Obama personally said – reduce the cost for everyone, allow the uninsured access to affordable care, not change anyone’s policy if they liked it, not force one to find a new doctor and they can’t even build a working web site in three years.

    Obama may be a nice guy, I wouldn’t know. But the PUBLIC face he presents is one of deceit. He knows NOTHING about what is going on in his admin. That is HIS words not mine.

    So if Obama is not running things who is?

    The shrub was described as “a blind man trying to communicate with a room full of deaf-mutes” when he was at cabinet meetings. And that description came from his first Treasury Secretary!
    But that’s O.K., since Cheney and Rumsfeld were really running things from 2001-2009 anyway…
    Do you REALLY think shrub knew EVERYTHING that was going on?
    As a matter of fact, do you think ANY President has known EVERYTHING that goes on in every department of the Federal Government at ALL times during his administration?
    I highly doubt that the President of G.M. knows what’s going on at a dealership in Boise, Idaho at all times.
    How many projects are the Defense Department, or DARPA working on that NO ONE else in the administration knows anything about? Think about it…
    Is it right? OF COURSE NOT!
    Is it unique to the Obama Administration? HIGHLY UNLIKELY!!

    One almost can hear Sergent Schmidt’s voice in the press room. He knew nothing, he heard nothing, he saw nothing…..

    Like nearly all of our Presidents since Nixon, the candidates told us how they would change the nation for the better, and once in office, worked to secure better positions for their party and donors in upcoming elections.
    Candidate Obama did promise greater transparency, more bipartisanship, and many other things mentioned in previous comments. His presidency was placed upon a foundation that was not even as secure as sand, it was more like a raft in a storm made up of the failures, misjudgements, and downright malfeasance of the previous administrations and Congresses.
    The gov’t is still on that raft, even though it is in sight of firmer ground and the waters aren’t as rough. With some cooperation, the Congress – even without the President, could put our nation in a firmer safer position. That does not fit their goals or narrative.
    This president is a man who wants to be a good man, but who was given a position for which he was not prepared by the media and his party. The opposing party was ready to be against any person who won, Mr. Obama’s heritage gave them more tools with which to raise funds and opposition.
    There is no reason to believe the next President, whether he is R, D, white, or male will get any more cooperation from the party that doesn’t win. This is why so much more money is being diverted to the states instead of national candidates.
    Money that could be used to create jobs, innovation, and new technologies is being funneled to television, radio, and print in order to manipulate those who won’t take the time to educate themselves to vote on issues they do not understand.
    One of the things I like about GC is the presence of people who, despite their oppositions, do understand and speak well on those positions. Even the trolls, from time to time, accidentally add to the debate in the intelligently stated responses they draw from those they wish to anger.

    One thing is certain… our nation is at one of its most financial and social weak points since the depression. The gap between the rich and poor has never been greater. Our military has never been more strained. The divisions between neighbors, nationwide, have not been so obvious since the un-Civil Wars of the 1860s.
    To blame one person, party, or group is to maintain the status quo. Every news channel will tell you that “THOSE PEOPLE” (that party, that group, that race, that income bracket) are responsible for all of our problems and only “OUR PEOPLE” have the solution. The thoughtful among us will try to calm the rising mobs, but there are too few of us.

    Virginia has its elections next Tuesday. Republicans who have shown themselves to be patriots of a far right social agenda will be running against Democrats who are the lesser of two evils. I volunteered to drive people who can’t otherwise get to the polls to their voting stations on behalf of the lesser evil as I perceive it. Once again, I’m working to elect the most moderate of two choices, voting against a group of extreme candidates because I have no better option to vote for.
    Sadly,
    but still Respectfully,
    C.

    Since the NSA started monitoring Merkel’s cell phone in 2002, that means someone in shrub’s administration authorized it.
    Since the NSA is under the defense department, that means it was more then likely Rummy, or even Darth Cheney himself.
    Now that leave us with 3 choices…
    #1. shrub DIDN’T know, so that makes him at least as clueless as the rightwingnuts are hollering that Obama is.

    #2. shrub DID know, and didn’t try to stop it, which makes him an accessory to breaking international laws against spying.#3. shrub DID know and tried and failed to stop it, which means he was a weak, ineffectual President, unable to control “his” administration.Which do you think it was??

    You make very good points. I, like many, have buyer’s remorse, for reasons including but not limited to the ones you posted. But every time I think I made a major mistake, I remember that Mr. Obama ran against a candidate who thought Sarah Palin would be great being just “a heartbeat away” from the presidency, and then a candidate who thinks corporations are people, and would nominate Supreme Court justices who would continue this kind of idiocy. While the president can certainly mess things up, the Supreme Court can do at least as much damage, and they don’t have to leave after 4 to 8 years of their damage.

    I plead with the Republican party to find some candidates who are vote-worthy (or, perhaps more correctly, to stop eliminating vote-worthy candidates (like John Huntsman) who just aren’t extreme enough). Until then, I will hold my nose and vote for non-Republicans.
