    Interesting that all of the complaints about our “socialist, communist-sympathizing, left-wing radical” president, are all based on things that he has done that are clearly conservative in nature.
    Perhaps if we could get all of the Tea-party members to vote purely for Green-party candidates in the next few elections, then we can get a president and congress who support the will of the people.

    both USED to attack republics, with ‘small is beautiful" and ’big is bad’ mantras, both fed by royal oil and tory money.

    @Daemon Sophic

    What in the world has Obama done that are “clearly conservative”?

    A few hours after Obama was elected back in 2008, I pointed out what I saw as an oversight in his tax proposals.
    I got called “racist” for that by an Obama supporter who literally told me to “drop the act” and “admit” to being racist because, according to this supporter, there was “no good reason” to ever criticize him unless the criticism was just a guise for racism.

    So why did you reprint them?

    (1) Yes, I did.
    (2) I could ask you to rephrase/clarify your question, but I’ll assume you meant to ask something to the effect “of the actions or charcteristics alleged by Rall in the comic to be Obama’s, which are not conservative”? Panel 1: drones are in and of themselves neither “liberal” nor “conservative”, but the “liberal” use of them (pun intended) under Obama bothers plenty of conservatives. Panel 2: bankster (pun on "gangster?) bailouts is definitely not conservative. Glad to see a commie like Rall against them too. Panel 3: a majority of conservatives think we are long overdue for withdrawl from Afghanistan. A lot of conservatives thought we should have withdrawn after removing the Taliban from power. Panel 5: NSA snooping on American citizens drives conservatives/libertarians nuts. And I mean NUTS. Panel 7: mainstream conservatives were emphatically reluctant to get involved in Libya/Syria (and Egypt for that matter). Most conservatives are still against same sex marriage, but readily concede that it should be left up to the electorate of each state to decide. What drives conservatives nuts is a couple of judges suddenly finding out there is a constitutional and/or civil right to same sex marriage when that is clearly false.
    Panels 8 and 9 are just funny.

    All your observations are correct.
    You predicted that Obama was no Progressive well before the election.
    For that feat of observation, you’ve been pilloried by the rightwing WallSt Democratinc establishment as well as the nutcase right.
    You were correct on this.
    Their insults hurt, but you were still right.

    Huh, these complaints sound almost like the right-libertarians. Ever thought about switching sides?

    Obama wasn’t elected because Sarah Palin terrorized people. He was elected because everyone wanted to prove they weren’t racist…the 1st time. He was elected the second time because of voter fraud. I’d like to know who the hell vetted this traitor. If his lips are moving, he’s lying.
