Thread Name: BS: Obama Hate Thread...
Subject: RE: BS: Obama Hate Thread...
More complete ignorance (or denial) of reality, N.B, on your part...

Got news for you... Obama is neither a king or a dictator... No matter what he privately might want to do there aren't constitutional paths for him to do it... He's doing about as much as he can do given his constitutional powers...

Jack is right... He, as promised gotten US out of Iraq... And he's trying to do the same in Afghanistan... The problems with wars is that they just don't end well too often, with WW II being an exception to the rule...

War for American Independence... didn't end well or there wouldn't have been the War of 1812

The American Civil War... didn't end well and still not over

WW I... didn't end well or we wouldn't have had WW II 20 years later

Korean War... didn't end well or at all for that matter

Vietnam... didn't end well

Iraq... didn't end well

Afghanistan... won't end well

So Obam is being held to a higher standard that all the presidents that have come before him... That is reality... It's easy to say things like "We should apologize to Iraq" as a private citizen... Impossible as president... If Obama were to do that he be beaten into a pulp by the right wing and they would use that one pronouncement to render him all but dead politically...

I mean, you and the other two rose-colored-glasses, GfinS and sidekick, LH, don't do reality...

I mean, you can go down the list of things you think Obama should or can do but until you take them glasses off and become informed you three sound like 2 year olds...

Sorry, I am a student of politics and I do reality... I read more differing stories, opinions and articles on a full spectrum of real world events every day than I'd bet the 3 of you do in a year...

That's why I put up a challenge for ya'll to get your heads out of each others asses and actually become part of the real world and not ya'll's make-believe 2 year old's world...

Again, lets do some reality:

1. Obama was handed 2 fucked up wars...

2. Obama was handed the worst economy since the 1920s...

3. Obama was handed the Congress that has been the most obstructionist since 1860...

4. In 2010 the wealthy bought even more of Congress with their Tea Party puppets who are out to destroy the government...

Again, given the "real" realities of what was going to be possible Jesus Christ Himself wasn't going do more than what Obama has done...

Your childish question of what Obama has done that Bush didn't do is just that... When you start asking adult questions then I'll know that you are reading adult materials... Right now, the 3 of you aren stuck at the "Jack 'n Jill" level of reality...
