The same reasons I despise Bush are the same reasons I despise Obama. As I feel I can see through these plastic smiles, I feel hurt that they screw
over so many people. Handing out promises left and right to your common person, with a handshake and wink to go with it, months later only going back
on your word and proving to people that mainstream politics are a very controlled environment.
I don't respect Obama for a number of VALID reasons.
BAILOUTS: He rallied behind the first one with McCain, Bush, Pelosi, and Bernanke. All of them smiled their way into the hearts of idiot Americans,
even when this bill was only 4 pages long and had zero limitations for the Federal Reserve. Noticing that the majority of his campaign contributions
miraculously coincided with all the banks he worked so hard to bailout, not once, but twice, even electing a lobbyist or two to his team.
FISA and PATRIOT ACT: Both Bush and Obama support and defend(ed) these unprecedented spying powers. Turning every American citizen into a suspect. Be
it, I'm more upset about Obama because his little fib claim is that he is a "Constitutional Law Professor" and he ought to know that goes directly
against the Constitution of the United States of America. Not only that, but regarding the Patriot Act, he said he was going to "repeal" the Patriot
Act, and ended up voting to extend it shortly after, which tells me he's not leading, but taking orders.
IRAQ/AFGHANISTAN: A lot of "conservatives" I've seen applaud what he's doing in Afghanistan, but I don't agree with it at all. Not only is he not
going to draw all American troops out of Iraq, he's leaving 70,000 "non combat troops" inside Iraq, which I find to be a very sneaky way to say
"I'm not withdrawing troops from Iraq." And seriously.. What are we doing in Afghanistan? Fighting the neverending, ever ambigious "war on
WAR ON DRUGS: For a man who's been pretty open about his coc aine and marijuana use, he sure seems to blow the neverending "war on drugs" off
pretty easily. People who are doing exactly what he himself has done in the past are ending up in prison for a multiple year sentence, thousands of
dollars in fines, and years of probation.
LITTLE LIES: He's a liar. As a politican that is to be expected, but really... You lied about struggling as a child on food stamps, your uncle
liberating Auchwitz, and talks so passionately about denying lobbyists access to the whitehouse and hires a handful of them.
Not to mention, he supports the FED, which has single handedly destroyed all traces of true American wealth and even appointed a FED president
(Geithner) to run OUR treasury!
Handed ALL U.S. AGRICULTURE over to Monsanto's go to guy, Vilsack!
and is playing up this cap and trade deal to be a good thing, while all the spoils go to the corporate level while once again the layman is stuck with
He's a corporate protectionist and doesn't give a flying # about the people. Just like Bush.
