I don't think it's his job to defend the president. I'm sure he must find it somewhat enjoyable. I move to question your role.

You are forgetting, as a member of the ousted political party, that you find the president disagreeable because he ran on a different political platform during the election (which you apparently disagreed with). So it is no mystery that, since then, you continue to disagree with him. Unfortunately, for you, this is a democracy, and a democracy respects the will of the majority. I know that unyielding confidence in their own judgment can compel some in the minority to drag their feet every step of the way, but it really only serves to be counterproductive to solving the problems at hand.

Obama made things very clear during the election. No one should be surprised. He's doing exactly what America elected him to do. And if you remain unsatisfied with the tally, let me remind you that there are still plenty of governments out there that think the masses are too easily mislead, too uneducated, too emotional, and thus wholly incapable of making their own decisions. I suggest you read up on them.

I didnt vote for him or McCain for that matter but he hasnt done much, if any, of what he said he'd do. From a certain context, you are right because he was elected and he is a politician and doing what's best for the causes of his choice. Unfortunately I dont see the super majority of the populace being one of those causes. I could poo poo and say he is performing "politics as usual" but its still a little early to empty my rhetoric gun on him. I like the guy but he has failed to show me the leadership aspect a President is expected to ascertain from the job. It has been clear that these last 97 days have been OJT for Obama.

I understand the last administration left a bad taste in everyone's mouth but how long are we going to be patient as he figures things out? Spending money like a drunk sailor in Spain (me, once upon a time ) isnt going to get the economy anywhere. And lest we forget the stupid Taliban in Pakistan. Obama has a tough job, I do not envy him at all, but I feel as smart as he appears to be this is one task's learning curve that may be out of his reach.

Anyway pot jokes aside... Oh Obama is PAYING them off... Yes... Sure why not. I think Bill Maher addressed Glenn Becks rant that we are becoming Communist pretty well...



People are blowing things way out of context. Same way Beck is...
At what point has that network even took a shot at Obama? And even if the CEO said this you already KNEW the Cap and Trade would benefit GE. So that's not a SHOCK. How is this a payoff when you could have already seen this coming? They didn't write a check to GE they are just talking about something that HAPPENS to benefit GE.

And they already LIKED Obama over there so telling people to stop complaining would come as a shock?

This is indirect bribing! Damn them! This isn't near as bad as Blago selling the flipping Senate seat. And if the Cap and Trade thing don't go through then GE gets no money... And the O'Reilly gets to bitch about something else and Beck gets to make more impressions!

So all is happy with the world...
