Thats right, you read it right.
I WILL bash on Obama, every chance I can get.
To be honest, I agree with you. Obama is not what he is cracked up to be.
United States would be better off with a Independent president.

So you have publicly admitted that you can't look at thing unbiasedly and with a critical eye and think for yourself because of some pre conceived notions about a president who is not with your party.
I will remember to just skim over your posts from now on.
I don't know where you get that from his post moreover, it sounds like YOU are guilty of what you have asserted as your "understanding" of his post.
Ironically, I see your post, as an attempt to second guess the OP and re-write that disparaging interpretation which is words to the effect:
" So in other words what you "really mean" is...... [place best character assasination using most extreme antithesis as interpreted by you]
Funny how the poster never refuted it either. Extreme antithesis? *laughs* I think your being a little extreme. by admition,the poster is never going to look at politics critically. And every arguement is going to be shadowing a late night talk show host. And how exactly does that add to ats?
[ think what the OP has said is simply this:
Yet, you accuse me of making up my own interpretation.
"Unlike some of us, a house doesn't have to fall on the OP's head to understand what a dispicable anti american, coward this kenyan con man is.
Wow, and all in the same thread you managed to show that you are defending someone of like mind, and going after someone who has an opposing opinion. Because your siding with someone who has the same misguided, biased, beliefs as you do.
I am there myself and regret not listening to all those people that had tried to tell us that all that stuff about obama that they were calling signs of socialism, his sleazy circle of friends and his lies we all ignored as right wing fear mongering, was one of the most stupid errors in judgement, we as American voters have ever fell for.
Your previous statement has already negated that you are not capable of critical thinking and have joined the right wing pack mentality.
Yeah, I guess you may as well skip my posts too, because I too have my mind made up. Obama is a pondscum.
You people can't even be original enough to make up your own slanders. Pondscum? harsh....

So Mr. Common Good, i take it you are refusing to engage in a intelligent discussion on this topic? Top of page two of this thread, I posted some thoughts in the hope of a discussion, yet you either pass over them.
I fully respect your right to say whatever the hell you want, but i do not respect a person who dodges a debate of this magnitude when you, yourself, brought it to light. I didn't sit here and make baseless comments about someone, and only provide two crappy examples.
Lets deny ignorance. Why not engage in a debate with me about this, maybe you can save a little bit of face and make yourself seem less like a typical obama basher.
and just so you know, i am by no means an obama fan boy. i voted for mccain, i accepted obama as our president with the thought that hey, if anyone is going to provide some sort of difference, it would be a newbie. So far i have been proven wrong, but it would be highly ignorant of me to sit here and say "I WILL bash on Obama, every chance I can get."
Almost as saying "I WILL eat turds every chance i can get, just to make some people squeamish."
Lets be intelligent here. lets have a discussion. what do you have to lose?
and yes, you should consider this a challenge. lets man up and be adults.

Luckily they are an aging and dying breed. Give it 10 more years and such mindsets will have gone the way of the whigs.
Becoming a waning voice in society from ancient viewpoints can make a person angry and even violent, which serves in only quickening their pace towards oblivion.
There will always be people choosing to live in caves, no matter how far society advances.
