grateful dead music is what helps me remember that the big three ring circus they call a gonvernment really does not matter in the grand scheme of thing.

when the music feels as tho its taking you to a point of religious ecstasy, politics just seems like backtracking

Obama is a lying son a boitch with no balls. He lied about getting us out of war, and even increased our presence in afghanistan! He wil lnot cut defense. He will not raise taxes like we need to. We all need to pay more, rich included. He will not stand up for the liberals or the middle class and caves into the republicans everytime. Spinless, fake, and not even close to a real liberal. It bugs me when republicans call him socialist cause he is so far right its ridiculous. We need a real socialist, or even a real democrat i nthere. I will prob vote for him given the likley opponent. But seriously. Geroge W. Obama is a warmongerer and a liar.


Can you please post a link to where Obama claimed to get us "out of war"? Or what his official position was in afghanistan?

He never claimed to be liberal. He went to harvard, not Boalt Hall.

But you are right- the whole socialist crap being laid on him is wrong.... but dont' start callign him a liar unless you can show exactly where he is lying.


"We're not going to baby sit a civil war."
Barack Obama quote spoken on NBC's Today Show on January 11, 2007

“The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

Sen. Barrack Obama – December 20, 2007

"The world, and the Iraqi people would be better off without him. But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.”

Sen. Barack Obama — March 27, 2007

"Obama stretched out his schedule for withdrawing troops from Iraq. During the debate, Obama said we could “reduce” the number of combat troops in 16 months. Obama said, “We should end this war responsibly. We should do it in phases. But in 16 months we should be able to reduce our combat troops, provide some relief to military families and our troops and bolster our efforts in Afghanistan so that we can capture and kill bin Laden and crush al Qaeda.”
But in Oct. 2007, Obama supported removing all combat troops from Iraq within 16 months, saying, “I will remove one or two brigades a month, and get all of our combat troops out of Iraq within 16 months. The only troops I will keep in Iraq will perform the limited missions of protecting our diplomats and carrying out targeted strikes on al Qaeda. And I will launch the diplomatic and humanitarian initiatives that are so badly needed. Let there be no doubt: I will end this war.” The quote appears on the campaign’s Web site."

And now 2 and half years into his presidency we still have over 50,000 'non combat' troops in Iraq. Total BS.

You may remember one of his first promises as president...to close Guantanamo Bay. He still has not 2 years later.

"President Obama on Monday reversed his two-year-old order halting new military charges against detainees at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, permitting military trials to resume with revamped procedures but implicitly admitting the failure of his pledge to close the prison camp."

Did I mention Libya??? The War Powers Act??? The fucking law??? Seriously, you are defensing him on this shit????


This was all found in about two minutes of looking. I am kind of surprised you are under the impresssion that Obama did not campaign on an anti war platform... Did you happen to catch any of his speaches during 2007?? so once again I say, fuck this lying warmongerer. I will look up more quotes if you desire.

I wish I could tell you what his official plan for afghanistan was/is but one cannot find any two statements that convey the same thought or plan! Its 'scale operations down here', or 'bolster troop numbers here'... He never had a plan! He says what he thinks the people listening want to hear while he speaks in general phrases that hint at ending both of these wars. Another illustration on how poor of a president he is, a curious constituent (me) cannot even find his definitive stance on an issue as important as afghanistan! (although he is not alone in that) Can you tell me, what IS his stance on Afghanistan??

I do love the 5 pillars . Obama's biggest accomplishment was socialized medicine and we all know how well that worked out ( Mass. , Canada etc. ) He's a great speaker and the liberal media loves him. Protest music is one thing but like Jerry once said we never get involved in politics ............

Sorry, clearly you've been wathcing too much Fox News and their lies, but socialized medicine is the last thing the Obama healthcare bill was, quite unfortunately for the people of this country. It left the health care system in the control of for-profit entities, with the government not even allowed to offer more than a very limited plan of its own and then only to a fraction of one percent of the population. Therefore, about 1/3 of every dollar spent on healthcare in this country continues to go to cover profits, marketing and administrative costs. Compare that to the less than 2-5% expense ratio in every other industrialized country. We're fools for not having a national health care system. None of my patients would die because they couldn't afford their chemotherapy, insulin or blood pressure meds if they lived across the river in Canada!
I'll step off my soapbox now, but as someone who has worked in the US healthcare system for almost 30 years, you hit home on that one.

If you think Obama is a socialist or anything he has done is remotely socialist ( ie his health care bill) you really should learn the definition of that word. Socialized Health Care??? Not even close!!! I really didnt want to start throwing personal stones but seriously, you are stupid and do not even understand the meaning of the words you are using.
