"President Barack Hussein Obama refuses to use the words Muslim and terrorist in the same sentence."
I don't understand this sentiment at all. Should we also start saying the "Christian -Westboro Baptist Church"?
The xenophobia coming from the right is appalling at times.
...but the effects of Bush's crashed economy linger because of an obstructionist minority blocks any fix Obama attempts. Take the record number of filibusters as example, or the record number of vacant Presidential appointments still being held up.
Moderates would probably be blaming Obama for these issues if the other side of the aisle had shown even one shred of good faith in working with Democrats.
How am I supposed to take any conservative crying "SOCIALISM!" about the Affordable Care Act seriously when the basic premise for the whole bill (the individual mandate) was originally written by a conservative think tank? You want us to be critical of our Pres because of some talking points on a Sunday morning news show? ...But expect everyone to get over the previous administration essentially inventing evidence TO START A WAR (that is still greatly effecting our budgets)... because it's "in the past"? BTW, how many embassies/consulates were attacked while Bush was in office? Maybe Bush just desensitized us all to government scandals?
It's like the boy who cried wolf. The GOP has been playing political games since Obama was elected. Why should anyone believe that these are any different? Maybe Bush just desensitized us all to government scandals?
"there is no need to advertise sour grapes"...
C'mon Mark... you are consistently one of the most pessimistic commenters on these boards.
