Mr. Reagan would like to see the AIDS test applied to immigrants, Federal prisoners, patients at veterans' hospitals, people getting married and those attending sexual disease clinics. Apart from prison populations containing drug addicts, these are not the groups at highest risk for AIDS.

Mr. Reagan had good reason for his omission: The superpower positions are now reversed. The President called at Glassboro - to a resisting Soviet leader

This is like the imaginary "war on Christmas": much ado about nothing.

"WE" are who agrees in nominal debate.

Ah.
A moving target then. In this particular "debate", I'm not part your your "we." To my relief.

It is strange if you recall that it wasn't that long ago when some of them were so quick to correct others for doing the same thing.a reply to: Terims

Hmmmm. I guess Bush and Reagan were born in Kenya too. Who knew?

Yeah, yeah, I've heard this before, not really sure what it means though. You don't like Obama because he is a Socialist. Well, guess what, I don't like him because he ISN'T a Socialist.


Isn't a socialist ?

What do you call someone who spent 10 trillion dollars during his reign of terror, and forced people to buy corporate products.

Sure the hell isn't a 'fiscal' conservative.

Does anyone else seem to find this odd or do I just have a bad memory?

Answer - you just have a bad memory. Obama is being addressed and/or referred to the same way Bush43, Clinton, Bush41, Reagan, Carter, etc were addressed and referred to.

Obama has been no where near treated like GW was, and still is.

He was "w" (middle initial) to some to distinguish him from President Bush senior. The story goes that President Clinton's staff took the "w" off of all the keyboards in the White House when they vacated just to mess with the new crew.

Alas..yes...even President's we don't like should be referred to as President IMO. It's accurate and speaks to the office...

The media specifically is obligated to report news without bias or prejudice and should show that basic courtesy in reporting. That goes for all past, present and future presidents.

The question wasn't 'how he is treated'. The question was 'how he is addressed'. The addressing is the same. The treating, as you say, is very different. The media is too afraid to be hard on Obama like they were on Bush43. But that's a topic for a different thread so ...

You are delusional on that one. Obama has been called everything from a Closet Terrorist to an usurper born in Kenya.

You have to have some googly eyed love of President Bush to imagine he was treated worse by the opposition.

The media has called every president I remember "Mr. Lastname" often. Mr. Reagan, Mr. Bush, Mr. Clinton, Mr. Bush, Mr. Obama... I'm not grasping what your issue is, I guess.

The difference is the media. Obama has benefitted from being a media and Hollywood darling whereas GWB had very vocal critics in the media and entertainment industries.

I find it funny that you complain that Bush was treated worse than Obama, yet in your own postings, you refer to the Obama Administration as a "Reign of Terror". I did not approve of Bush, but I certainly never called his administration a "reign of terror". A "reign of stupid", maybe. But not of terror.

To be clear, I don't approve of Obama either, but people REALLY go out of their way to demonize him. "He's a muslim terrorist!" "He's a Kenyan usurper!" "He's the ANTI-CHRIST", I could go on.

Is it so hard to say that he's just a bad president, and nothing more?

For effs sake? I can tell logic isn't participating in the thread.

The Whitehouse was shot at?...

And it wasn't a Senator, Congressman or Media member that threw a shoe or shot at the whitehouse.

There are many times where Media, Politicians etc. accused the President of being a terrorist or being born in Kenya.

Yeah 'regin of terror'.

Bombing the crap out of Libya.

Benghazi,Fast and Furious.

Provoking rich, and poor fighting themselves.

Provoking black, and white fighting themselves.

Picking and choose what laws matter.

Trading deserters for terrorists, and straight out letting them go.

Arming the 'Syrian rebels' which are sunni terrorists.

Backing of the terrorist regime in Egypt.

Droning more people than the last guy.

YEAH Reign of terror.

Does the media 'address' Obama' on that?

Nope.

Don't know what to do with this disconnect? best to exit the crazy thread now...BTW, just curious...ever watch Fox News? How about Glen Beck? Briebart News...or a gazillion other outlets?
