How is it irrational to point out the Obama Administrations LIES? How is it irrational to point out that his administration is floundering?
What is irrational is the responses on this board from people who would have everyone believe that their reasoning is beyond reproach, who are constantly making excuses for the President and his Administration.
And now with a bald faced lie you and others such as FTL, McBear, etc. just want to pass it off as no big deal.
I would have agreed w/ you to the point that it is just another Obama Gaffe but now his administration is coming out and denying it.
So its ok for Obama to lie and have incompetent people in his administration because he is new and inexperienced? That is what is being said over and over again by people here.
When are you just going to admit that he is not as smart as you thought he was and that he is not up to the job?
I quoted a single passage of yours and responded to it. Go back and look, I did not respond to anything I did not quote. Thus your response is evasive, meaningless tripe that does nothing to defend your stated position that Obama is the same as Bush.
But OK, explain the association with policy and how it is likely to impact your life. Tell me this isn't just some petty little incident you absorbed while ingesting thought beams from your AM radio.
Obama isn't my boy, I didn't vote for him and I'm certainly no Dem. But I do have enough respect for my country and its political process to allow my legally elected president some room to maneuver, room he earned last November, in case you don't recall.
As I see it, this is how America works: two political parties hoodwink the American public into believing we live in a Democracy by holding a sham election between candidates stamped and approved by the corporate powers-that-be. Once the election is decided, both sides come together to support the victor. If both sides do not come together to support the victor, the system becomes increasingly disjointed and ultimately fails.
Do I like Obama's domestic agenda? Absolutely not, it scared the hell out of me before the election and continues to do the same. But I'll still grant the opportunity to achieve that he earned last November -- it's the American way. Try to get behind him and hope he's smarter than you. There will be plenty of time to rail against policy if he fails, and we'll be none the better for it.
I've been listening to the right bitch and moan about Obama since before he took office. Do as you wish, I'll hold any harsh criticism off for a while. I afforded Bush the same courtesy, even after the incredulous outcome of the '04 election.
