My purpose in defending Bush here and there and Obama here and there is not thread/topic-specific but borne from the understanding that the moment a
President takes office nowadays, 70% of the world already hate him. Half of those people for him being American, and the other half for him
being of the other party.
I would like to hang around and actually explore the pros and cons of him getting a Nobel Prize, but its difficult with all the indignant shouting
around by people who always shout around no matter what the topic.
Noone was shouting, as far as i read this thread.
In a way you are right, once a President is elected there are those who don't like that President because of what he stands for.
But the thing is what has President Obama done that is good?
I don't care that he is black, and all those people who voted for him just because of the color of his skin are wrong. You shouldn't be voting for
a person because of the color of his skin, but rather because of the issues he/she is trying to, and wants to implement.
I say the same thing about Sotomayor, and she is hispanic just like me, but many hispanics, and more so young children, and young adults, but this
includes many adults hispanics just love her for no other reason than because she is hispanic. But if you look at her decisions in court, and the
statements she has been making in the past, she is the wrong choice for the supreme court. At least for the United States Republic Supreme Court.
The same thing is happening with President Obama.
How can President Obama, and his administration really care for the people when they wasted more money than ANY other administration in the
inauguration of a President of the United States? And at a time when EVERYONE knew that the United States has been in a deep economic crisis, and
making this wasteful spending just for "PRIDE" in these times is JUST WRONG.
I am not yelling when i put certain words in caps, i am just trying to emphasize a point.
And that was in the first days of President Obama being in office.
Does that tell you that President Obama, and his administration care for the american people, who have been suffering and have been losing jobs like
there is no tomorrow?
What about the whole Greek/Roman temple thing? Back then those people who were in power were seen as almost the equals of the Gods, and Godesses.
What point was the Obama administration trying to make with that whole setup?
Then there is the fact that we even have President Obama himself on video, responding to an old american lady that "she might be better continuing to
take the pill, which are made by big Pharma, rather than have the treatments, or operations which DOCTORS think could help her" and there are still
people claiming that President Obama, and his entire administration care for the American people?....
Not to mention the fact that Obama was caught red handed making deals with Big Pharma to stop Congress from trying to lower the cost of prescription
drugs, among other things.
Then again there are several other issues, such as the fact that President Obama himself signed into law a bill, H.R. 1388, in which he puts "the
Corporation" in charge over all learn base/educational programs, as well as Community Service, which includes MANDATORY Community Service.
For now those who will be in one way or another FORCED to participate in this includes children starting from secondary school through college.
Then anyone from 18-25 will have to do at least 3 months military training, and 100 hours of Community Service no matter if they are single parents,
if they are going to college and, or are holding a couple of jobs just to get through, and you won't get paid for this service, not to mention that
you will have no choice in the matter.
In the bill there is even a secton in which it states this corporation is also in charge of a "centralized electronic citizenship verification
system," and we all know what that means.
President Obama has broken MOST promises he made before he was President. He has not brought back our troops, in fact there are more toops in the
Mittle East, such as the National Guards, who have had the largest deployments in several state's history, and for the rest of the states the
deployments have been the largest since WWII.
Are we on WWIII or something without most of us knowing that we had to send so many troops to the Middle East?
What else has President Obama done? nationalized GM, and made the U.S. government in charge of it, and gave a portion of it to Canada. Was that
Or the fact that President Obama stated on live tv that certain CEOs of what USED to be a PRIVATE company should be fired, and then he went on to
order what sort of cars automakers should be making.... Was that good?
What about the so called stimulus bill? giving millions of dollars to RICH people meanwhile more, and more Americans kept, and keep losing jobs.
Was that good?
Now they are talking about a SECOND stimulus package, and you think that is "going to help the people"?
Make no mistake, President Obama, and his administration are only consolidating power for the elite, and NONE of this is going to help the people.
So please do tell us what good thing he has done.
