Hey Jester I was actually waiting for fellow conservative ATSers to post this topic. Kudos.

Time and time again I hear people comparing obama to lincoln, regan etc etc. Isn't it strange that they compare him to reps?
As I recall we have both parties and ideological supporters comparing present day candidates with the past. To restrict this to just the Democrats
shows little more than partisan bragging. Bush jnr... yes the one who lead the last administration, was on many occasions compared to Reagan and made
as a close friend and what not because of his fathers relationship with Reagan as vice president... Palin was called on numerous times in comparison
to the values of reagan.... and same to some dems. It happens both sides.
I certainly dont compare Obama to anybody in the past... I think his his own man and will judge him on his own actions when his first term ends.
When ever someone challeges the great obama people come out of the woodworks and say "hes only been in office for 2 months".
There are ten times as many Obama bashers on this forum than anything else, and the thread count is alone as evidence. The fact of the matter is that
"conservatives" here are already calling out on things yet to happen under this administration. Folks also tend to forget the crises started prior
towards his administration, and yet two months into office his already deemed a faliure. Left or right, I dont think thats a fair analysis.
Now nobody is stopping you from being critical over his policies and what you think will happen
but the above should be of common sense to see
folks are pruposefully jumping the gun.
So if that is the case then why praise him when hes only been in office for 2 months?
Again there are some extreme supporters of Obama just like there were of Palin and Ron Paul here... we cannot generalize as we feel and put it up as
fact. I never praised him for a successful administration nor do I know of any other Obama supporters. I do praise him for his coolness over the scorn
and economic pressure he is having to go through though. I think for any presidential candidate coming into the presidency now is indeed a brave
Countless of times did Obama bash Bush for his excess spending but yet when he's elected office he passes a bill that has a price tag for 800
And heres the difference. Obama is putting forth a stimulus inorder to curb the current economic mess that was brought forth in most by the policies
of the prior administration. Bush decided to spend trillions on pointless wars and tax cuts that have not shown any effectiveness following his
term.... there are clear differences. You may feel that the only way to solve the crises is to give out tax cuts or just wait it out however these is
a consensus among the dems and most economists that one has to invest in america and spend inorder to curb the crises. If repubs were in power, they
would be doing things their way.
And now he wants to Nationilize the bank system. But yet when someone challeges him its a sin.
I dont know Im yet to see Bushies, Paulers and other conservatives actually challange him on the relevant issues... not go on trolling sprees... If
you are critical about nationalization of all the banks (which we are yet to actually see) post a thread were references and and explanation, instead
of going on trolling rants.
Since when did we lose the right to question Obama? So now i ask you, What if things don't impove under obama?
As i said in my prior thread like this one, if things not marginally improve under Obama, meaning if theres no sufficient improvement or if things
have become significantly worse, I will throw him in the garbage bin with Bush and the rest of the administrative officials.... but thjere should be
recognition from your side that this is a pritty deep financial crises and as with any administration facing this there are no quick cures.
