How did America lose? America voted him in. America enjoys a democracy. Is there something else you would prefer? Dictatorship? How would you like our government to be selected?

Oh it's nice when a brainwashed obama youth brigade member comes to the forums to enlighten us.
I guess this time, we ain't gonna wait, this time as soon as we see the slightest move to socialism or war or wasteful spending we are gonna bitch about it because their is no point at that moment, we already know we just got smacked again. This time I hope Americans have learned something, that if we don't purge that entire system clean in Washington,. Then we have NO reason left to complain. Purging it clean will tell the nwo to get lost and if the same old jack asses are still in office despite out new efforts to kick acorns ass and get everyone out to vote for none of the above. Then we will know we have a BIG problem. It will be up to us to force them out at gun point.

I may be somewhat young and can only remember back to Reagan but I think that is enough presidents to see the big picture. Lots of people disliked Clinton, Bush Sr. Reagan, and I am sure more in the past. Where was all this outrage?

And many of us believe that this administration is setting everything in place to do far, far, worse. Carter on steroids ...

Not a SINGLE response to the faux war threat.
The president did not seek a formal declaration of war from Congress. But he did seek congressional support, he said, to demonstrate to the United Nations and to the world that military action against Iraq was not just his own
The current president Bush also never sought a formal declaration of war from Congress. Instead, he requested, and received, the authority to use armed forces "as he determines to be necessary and appropriate" to defend American interests against "the continuing threat posed by Iraq."
Furthermore, some have argued that the constitutional powers of the president as commander-in-chief invest him with broad powers specific to "waging" and "commencing" war.
Instead of formal war declarations, the United States Congress has begun issuing authorizations of force.
UNITED STATES SENATE
In the Senate, 21 Democrats, one Republican and one Independent who courageously voted their consciences in 2002 against the War in Iraq
UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Six House Republicans and one independent joined 126 Democratic members of the House of Representatives in voting NAY, on October 11, 2002, to the unprovoked use of force against Iraq.
126 (61%) of 208 Democratic Representatives voted against the resolution.

im gonna have to agree with the OP. We voted him in. Many people still do like obama. I personally, dont think he has done anything YET to make me extremely worried... in the ways that presidents of the past have. I am not sure we will ever have a president again like lincoln, jfk, or clinton (who aside from his affair was a great president).. and we might just have to come to accept that. politicians have become more corrupt than ever, and lets not forget a lot of factors. Obama is trying to fix the completely EFFED up workings of bush... so lets not give him quite such a hard time.
I would like to see you go and fix the dumb@ss bush's work and see how you are able to do.

Also, prominent democrats like Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry voted "Yes" for war with Iraq.
BTW your post had no sources / links. I've seen that before. It is not your own work.
You insult the memory of those who died by attempting to re-write history.

Second.....I applaud each and every one of the hero's that gave their life for their country. To insinuate that they did it for nothing is the insult.
