    All the Bush Hating War Protesters have scattered and are hiding under their rocks.

    Barack Hussein Obama is just like Sarah Palin "Unqualified" in other words "he's full of sh!t" and that guy was right when he stood up in Congress and yelled "YOU LIE"

    Bullsh!t

    It's no wonder he's losing popularity when I, an obama hater, am glad that he's failed on most of those but the lefies are angry with him for a lot of them. He's clearly stuck between a rock and a hard place and is going to have to piss off the lefties to win the middle back.

    I'm a supporter of the man, having said that.....he needs to frickin STEP IT UP!

    be a man, because apparently congress, and the court are being a bunch of b!tchez!

    Gitmo may be the best excample of the man who go elected and the man who got hancuffed, and some really strange advice.

    I often go back to what Bush said in his last days about how Obama's perspective would change as soon as he got to the White House and was told what was really happening. If someone can find the exact quote, I'd appreciate it.


    Makes me wonder what he was told....and whats really going on.

    What is most amazing is how much of a free pass he is getting - especially for things like Gitmo and warrantless wiretapping. We were told for years how Bush was shredding the Constitution. Exactly how has Obama been any better? Well, other than giving the mastermind of 9/11 full legal rights and protections afforded to U.S. citizens.

    I dont blame the guy for wanting to keep the powers that BUsh handed him. Everytime Bush pulled a slash of the constitution, under the guise of "Keeping you safe" I kept asking conservatives if they wanted Hillary Clinton to have the same power. They tended to say fine, and not see the big picture.

    Well, Obama has those powers that Bush gave him now, so you cant complain about that.

    The 9-11 mastreminds should be treated, in my opinion, like criminals. If we actually ever catch them...


    YOU know guys like BIN LADEN....

    That's funny. I don't seem to recall you protesting when Bush elected to try Zacarias Moussaoui in federal court.

    "Oh Look, there's Bush, God Damn you Bush Bastard"

    "Oh look, there's Barack, we love you Barack, oh God doesn't he have a beautiful smile, look at his cute little Ping Pong Paddle Ears"

    GOD BLESS MICHELLE'S ARMS THEY'RE SO FIRM

    What people don't realize is that both Democrat/Republican politicians alike work for the ELITE BANKERS, and they are their masters - this includes Obama(and Bush) as well.

    People need to wake up and smell the coffee.

    Obama is too far left for the right and too far right for the progressives. He needs to choose how he is going to define his presidency. My guess is he is going to abandon the far left. He will toss them a bone here and there but by and large he will move to the middle like Clinton did.

    That's funny. I wasn't posting in the forum around that time so it's pretty darn ignorant to say you do or don't remember what I was saying back then.

    Does it concern you at all that protecting a terrorist caught in the act, would have the ability to escape answering questions at a time when information they could get about future, even immanent attacts was missed out on because he/she gets the right to remain silent? Terrorists at war with the US should be under military juristiction.

    I don't recall either you or Wolfie being here when Moussaoui was being tried.

    I thought it was a bad idea. BTW since you weren't here, IMO the enhanced interrogation used on KSM was just fine.

    The Enhanced Interrogation worked SO good we had to do it 160 more times....

    because it was so effective.

    Know what they call it when you do the sam ething over and over, and expect a different result?

    Insanity.

    I'm sure the terrorist would be happy to know someone was concerned about his physical welfare. What fools we have here in America.
