    And on top of the Bush Tax Cuts - Obama cut even more taxes for 95 percent of Americans.

    Plus, he’s cut the size of government! Yes. Regardless of all those email forwards your kooky great-aunt sends you from her decades-old AOL account – the public work force has been reduced under an Obama presidency....

    President Obama has managed to quell all anti-war protests and even start a new conflict. That is surely to be the envy of any Republican president who’s ever served.

    Guantanamo Bay? Still open. Osama bin Laden? Shot in the head.

    Talk about getting 98 percent of what they wanted. If the GOP didn’t have to change their goal post so Obama could never score in their view – Republicans could be dumping Gatorade on Rush Limbaugh by now.

    I couldn't agree more.....


    But as it goes with Obummer....The Right wing will move the posts even further. Look at the candidates...8 years ago, all but 3 of them would be laughed off the stage, now the most insane are getting 18-26%!!!


    I want out....

    being able to look critically at one's own party is a trait lacking among most Republicans

    This is like the ultimate comedy. When blame Bush is no longer gaining traction, just call Obama a republican.

    Nice, snarky comment. No evidence of course. Just a wide brush of fantasy.

    When your poll numbers are in the 30's, it usually means your own party is being critical of you too.

    Exactly. And tellingly, neither RW nor khayos bother to even address the policies advanced by Obama that would have fit squarely in the GOP mainstream not even 10-15 years ago.

    Doubt that. The specter of a President Perry will be enough to scare the caterwauling liberals back into formation.

    Maybe you've heard me mention Coke & Pepsi a few times in here. :confused2: There is no difference between todays parties. Of course there are elements or factions inside the two parties that are more principled, or ideologically aligned with the traditional core, but the majority of Coke and Pepsi are establishment politicians. While you point to the general continuation of recent policy as an example of Obama being "a republican", I'll point to complete control by dems as being eerily similar to complete control by the GOP. Is one way republican or democrat? How about both.

    Take Gitmo. It is a result of 9/11 when the GOP called the shots. Since then we've had one sided control by coke, mixed gubmit, one sided control by Pepsi, mixed gubmit. If one side wanted it closed, then from 9/11 to now it would have happened. Why hasn't it? Cuz both coke and pepsi don't really want it closed. Hardly "republican" policy when a dem super majority doesn't move to close it.

    None of this even gets into what it means to be a "democrat" or "republican" in todays politics. I think most would agree that this isn't your fathers "x, y, z.." party anymore. Obama is simply an establishment politician, more than he is anything else.

    As opposed to yours? LOL

    It was a perfectly appropriate post given the "content" I was responding to.

    Of course -- that's actually my point. As has been pointed out here repeatedly, many Dems are unhappy with Obama. Even though the right likes to paint him as a socialist, etc., he has been too far right on many issues for his base.

    Unlike the Republicans who blindly supported Bush for years, many Dems are able to admit Obama's shortcomings and their disappointment in him.

    Bush's poll numbers were in the 30's Chico. That means pubs were criticizing him as well. That's the point.

    When did they get to that point, though? What were his approval ratings during his first term, prior to re-election?

    Did his policies change dramatically, or did it just take years for the Republicans to wake up?

    edit: (I completely agree that some Republicans criticized him -- but that wasn't common until the last couple years. imo, when they were gearing up for the next election, many Republicans threw Bush under the bus because they wanted to distance the party and themselves (in the case of pols) from the disaster his administration was. I would guess his approval rating trends reflect that as well.)

    Well I predicted that Obama would be a disaster for the country, but do more for conservatives than anyone in the past 20 years and it looks like that is how it is going to turn out.

    Its funny, conservatives must think that liberals who are critical of Obama are upset that he isn't being conservative enough....

    Agreed...

    first of all...Bush didn't hit 30% until....2006

    Historical*Bush*Approval*Ratings


    so.....lets not embellish this....

    and 2004 was a crazy year. We were 1 year into the fake Iraq war, the Bush administration was playing the fear card hourly. They were able to convince most republicans who were on the fence that John Kerry was somehow less of an american for going to Vietnam, and then protesting it.

    AND....If I'm not mistaken....That election was amazingly shady.
