Obama is a communist, socialist, destroyer of America, etc.



What does that have to do with race though?

Lashing out by either side is moronic, wouldn't you agree?

of course it is.....Reagan, bush 1, bush 2, Nixon all said the same thing....so....why would Obama be the exception in expressing that opinion...let's see....hmmm...just can't put my finger on it........I guess all those republican presidents were also communists, socialists, destroyers of American life as we know it.

Thread title: Obama blames Founding Fathers’ ‘structural’ design of Congress for gridlock

now we a getting a glimpse of the Herr Obama slogan/warning "I will Fundamentally Transform America'

he sees the American political mechanisms flawed, too Christian oriented, and too relaxed...
only the elites, the top tiers of the Pyramid have the insight & wisdom to transform this flawed system which proports to be 'free'

policies must be redoubled to 'dumb-down' the minions even further or else to reward the 'proper' voting choices with more SNAP, vouchers, rations, etc.
and to bring the expertise of a Community Organizer to reform the whole gridlock system

a reply to: guohua What he said is true. Like it or not. I tend to like the way it restrict the powers. It has prevented him and the Dems from doing anything though. The current Republican house has been especially uncompromising weather you like that or not. It results in do nothing government. Obama is using the legal use of executive powers to do what he can. Which is also provided for by the founders so don't cry about that either. The next President can undo what ever executive orders he signs if they choose too.

If he can use executive powers, which he has, then he isn't exactly powerless is he ? Which means there should never ever be a "do nothing government" and the buck really does stop with him.....right??? Per this pro Obama site (pleasecutthecrap.com...), here are 15 of his 249 accomplishments:


Returned The Executive Branch To Fiscal Responsibility

1. Within his first week, he signed an Executive Order ordering an audit of government contracts, and combating waste and abuse. 1.usa.gov...

3. On his first full day, he froze White House salaries. on.msnbc.com...

Prevented a Bush Depression and Improved the Economy

7. Pushed through and signed the Democratic-sponsored American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, otherwise known as “the stimulus package.” The bill passed, even though only three Republicans voted for it. In a major departure from the previous administration, he launched recovery.gov, a website that allows taxpayers to track spending from the Act. 1.usa.gov... 1.usa.gov...

8. The Bush-led Great Recession was costing the economy nearly 800,000 jobs per month by the time President Obama took office. But by the end of his first year, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act created and sustained 2.1 million jobs and stimulated the economy by 3.5%. reut.rs...

After all the posts of stupid things republicans have been saying, "who are suppose to be representing my views" it's nice to see liberals are just as stupid. If not more so.

So a valid critique of the performance of his own party is whining?

The Washington Times is rather biased, y'know. That's why there's a lot of paraphrasing and not much quoting.

Democrats tend to be "densely populated": Democrats crowd into wherever the welfare is highest.
Want to find a "densely populated" democrat community? Go to any free housing community.
Detroit is what you get if you allow the democrat agenda to come to fruition.

You trying to tell me, you haven't read or seen the Blaming of others, the Excessive's for Failures and Whining it was the Other Guys Fault!
Or, the Best One is, He Just Didn't Know and He's MAD!
Obama is Incompetent and a Liar!



You want to know Why Obama doesn't like our Constitution and Bill of Rights?
Because Sometimes, Someone, Somewhere in Washington, Listens To The People and Tells Us What's Going On there, Obama Hates That!

Well the founders were not infallible, but I will say this, we know that at local levels the dirty trick and cure for losing elections or keeping power that has always been played when demographics or populations change, I would venture to say mostly driven by Republicans is redistricting, Obama is just stating the obvious, whether you win or lose , this argument can be made by either side.

Hmmmmm, This has nothing to do with redistricting, that I can imagine, Obamas has a problem with the fact, a Small State is allowed to have Two (2) Representatives, That's the same as a Large State.
So, the Larger State Does Not Have More Say So and Control in Washington.
Every One, Even the Little guys are suppose to have a Voice, Obama Does Not Like That!
Our Founding Fathers had the Foresight to help us try and maintain control of our Government.

You know it's the reason they built it this way, to try and help avoid and abusive gov't.

[read: heavy sarcasm] But apparently, someone feels as if they did it simply and purely just to spite him. [/read: heavy sarcasm]

The problem with the current sitting president is that he is no leader, and his administration is mired in scandals and problems, with no way out, save that of Nixon, in hopes that the next person will ultimately give him a pardon for all of his activity.

The current president, has really never learned the arts of politics, that it is a give and take, that there are times when one side has to give, and in time take, that way there is compromise in policies and laws. And what he is proposing ultimately would never work, or benefit the very people that are proposing or suggesting it.

The founding fathers, did realize this, when looking at how to set up the government. Back then, the powerbase and population was far greater in the northern states. Under the system that he would propose, if you look at the 1790’s census, the Pennsylvania and Virginia were the powerhouses, and the state of Massachusetts, its votes could cancel out the votes of both of the Carolinas.

The sitting president failed to realize that if the government does not speak for all of the people, then this country could not survive as a nation. There had to be equal representation among all of the people. If that representation is based off of population, then states like California, Texas, New York, and Florida, would ultimate set the tone and policy of the USA, and the rest would either align or cancel out votes.

That means that the congress would be locked in a greater stalemate than it is now, and there would be a chance that there would be no real solutions for the country and there would be gridlock far greater than it already is.

If the sitting president thinks that it would be a good thing, he would sadly mistaken.

One cant help but believe that, to anyone that attended Rev Writes church for a good while, the primary problem with the founders is they were white. Nobody over there is really trying to salvage anything from what they may consider a flawed charter, but are instead looking to toss the baby out with the bathwater. I would personally give it more ear if they could say something like..."hay, that's not a bad charter coming from a bunch of slave holders". LOL

Not to mention that the constitution as it is now really doesn't support all the boggy man evil white guy stuff that they claim it does or did at one time. To the contrary.

Truth is they, in their twisted minds, still see the separation of powers as a plot to keep "the man" in control. What it really does is keep their revenge fill minds and hearts from becoming oppressive.

The problem is mostly because it was designed to control a representative government and they could not anticipate that the people would allow so many anti-American people to hold or stay in high offices.
