But obama just carries on where bush left of. He is commander in chief, while his military blow up weddings.

So thats fantasy is it?

I hated bush, for what he did, like i hated clinton.

It is the actions of the country, and the people blame the figurehead, thats life.

peopel where right to hate bush, but do not think for one minute america has changed so much under obama that that hate should go. Obama has just carried on so much of the bush stuff.

Both you sides need to look from another perspective, from outside. Its neither bds or ods, its just hating the figurehead of a country that does bad things.

Many here are suffering from ODS, indeed. But I Know How They Feel, for I suffered from BDS (and still have after effects) for several years.

Thing is, the way I felt about Bush was, in large part, because of things he actually did. These days, people suffering from ODS are pretty much basing their ideas on fantasy, lies, stuff that isn't happening and religious fanaticism. In my opinion, it's irrational and even paranoid. Interesting to watch, though.


I have a hard time understanding how Obama is different from Bush.

Essentially the same economic team is in power, Geithner was the former head of the NY Fed, best buddies with Paulson. Bernanke was just nominated by Obama back to chair the Fed. And Obama allowed TARP to go through with Kashkari at the wheel. Obama now wants even more bailouts for wall street.

Gates is still the secretary of defense? How does that work? The war policies are identical, no difference there. In fact Obama just expanded the war in Afghanistan.

He appoints the head of the NYSE to run the CIA? What's going on there? Same policies, in terms of homeland security. Obama is continuing the Patriot Act in all its glory. Gitmo is still in operation, will continue to operate at least until 2011, no difference from Bush there either.

The heathcare "reform" package was written by insurance companies. This is something Bush actually promoted! Lets not forget the tens of millions in government loot dished out to big pharma for "vaccines". Bush also had his prescription drug program, another massive fascist handout to big pharma.

What exactly is the difference between these guys?

How can you hate Bush but love Hussein?

I think their is such a syndrome hahaha.

The amount of threads created on here just to bash Obama are pathetic.

Some of you might disagree with him, but the some of the things people come out with are ludicrous.

However it may be different looking in from the outside, as i'm not American.


no, your right, it is ludicrous...the extreme right still thinks there are death panels in the newly passed healthcare bill, the teabaggers still hold up signs comparing obama to hitler, mao, stalin, the joker. they say "we need to take back our country"...from what? obama was elected 12 months ago with 8 million more votes than mccain recieved....take back the 8 million votes?? for them being patriots, they don't seem patriotic to me, if they are trying to overturn the votes of 8 million citizens. apparently they aren't patriotic, and they simply want to overthrow the current government....that sounds like treason to me.

I didn't say that I did either. Making rash assumptions is another symptom.

When I had BDS (as I discussed in the linked thread) I didn't think I had it either.
If I had realized it then, I would have snapped out of it.

LOL

Yeah I know.

It kills me when Dems are ready to nuke Bush from orbit but then bow down and worship the ground the God King walks on when there is absolutely ZERO difference in policy between them.

All Obama is doing is accelerating the Bush policies at a faster rate.

The same secretary of defense?

LOL

Give me a break.

More incorrect assumptions. I've never been a "Dem" in my life and I certainly don't bow down and worship ANYONE.

If you're not a Dem, then my apologies, you certainly came off like one in your post.

However my statements ring true for the rest of them.

Democrats are fascists on steroids.

These guys are so corrupt they make Bush look like a saint.

There's that fantasy thing I was talking about.
Yes, there are corrupt politicians. Duh. But the Democrats are no worse than the Republicans and vice versa. And NOTHING but Cheney can make Bush look like a saint!


Snap out of it, man!

The world with 50% americans minus china suffer from BDS during 2000-2008. That is about 5 billion people.

Unfortunately the new disease, ODS is actually BDS on steroid, fortunately it only happen to 50% of americans (about 150 million).


Yeah, chicom really love bush jr, go figure.

(psst, I'll tell you a liitle secret, bush co loves communists, they give them cheap labors and no fuss about the environment, communists are not environmentalists, that's why obama is not much of a communist... geddit, hee hee)

If ODSers knew what happened in copenhagen during barack's visit, they will take back everything they said about barack being in bed with china. Personally I'm just glad this whole damn thing finally comes to a finalization, so it doesn't matter much anymore if some people still have ODS, it's done, it's over and I don't have to deal with the politics anymore.

ps: Yes I consider the previous admin is a lot of worse than this one, most people don't know this, it really is a lot worse. Doesn't matter now, it's over, now everything is "peachy" again.

Are you serious? Major Hassan, a muslim, perpetrator of the Ft. Hood massacre, committed the biggest terrorist act since 9/11/01.

Anyway....Bush Derangement Syndrome was real. The premise was that whatever Bush did crazy liberals would have an unreasonable hatred towards it.

The problem with copying this premise and sticking it on Obama is that Obama is doing things that actually have valid reasons for opposing it.

After reading of the odious health care bill's moving forward this morning, I had a great need to rant about the Obama administration.

This thread gave me an excellent outlet to let fly my frustrations in a productive manner. (I hope)

I would like to thank everyone who participated in this thread. You helped bring me down from my fury.

I now see that Obama is just the puppet of TPTB, set before us to despise in their place.

I still dont like him though.

Hi, I'm Chance321 and yes, I have ODS. Maybe it was his non-stimulating-stimulus package that just had to be rushed though with very little chance to read it, or shoving national health care down our throats, or maybe all the czars? Why is he afraid to have them vetted, what would be the problem, he controls congress an the senate. Or the lack of transparancy that he promised that has never showed up, or the forced firing of a CEO from a PRIVATE company (GM), or the forced partnership between Chrysler an fiat, or maybe the getting a nobel peace prise for doing NOTHING, well you get the idea.
