Thanks to the surge Obama opposed, leaving Iraq with Victory instead of defeat was Bush's plan not Obama's
More troops in Afghanistan....(read paragraph above)
Health Care Reform? Well if you mean Government run health care...Why would anyone be for that?
Bottom Up economics? How many jobs can the poor actually create?
Ending torture? How can you end something that the US does not do?
Closing Club Gitmo? You actually fell for that! LOL! Announce to close a detention facility with no clue where the detainees are going? That is
Middle Class Tax Cut? OK Thanks Obama for my extra $13 a week...but wait...that plus more will be gone by the time my state raises taxes to pay for
More transparency? The only transparency I see is how many Democrats appointed to Obama cabinet refused to pay their taxes!
More regulation on Wall Street? How about a massive federal takeover of our banks?
Roosevelt? Give me a break...he prolonged the depression by atleast 8 years and we got out of it because of WW2.
You really showed him! But see, this is the problem the conservatives have been experiencing. The QUESTION wasn't whether Obama had ideas that have
worked, the QUESTION was whether any Obama supporters could name even one thing the man stood for. The response was laden with things Obama supported,
and still does support.
See, now what you've done is pretty simple. You skipped right over the fact that people may have voted for Obama because he represented, for example,
withdrawal from Iraq, and you decided to focus on Obama's outlook. They're two TOTALLY different things.
You cannot disagree with the fact that there are lots of reasons you would vote for Obama. If I want us out of Iraq and McCain says "we could be
there for 100 more years," while Obama is saying he'll withdraw in some odd months, then what I have is a reason to vote for Obama. You can't argue
This is why it's so hard to take you seriously.
Totally agree with you on the FDR bit though. He implemented sweeping government programs designed to lift us up out of the depression and it didn't
do what it was supposed to do. He was able to lower unemployment, but to something like 16% which, while it's an improvement from the 20+% from
before, it's not a save. WWII was our real savior. Too bad Iraq can't at least do that for us.
