I think you are a damn elitist for remembering all that stuff and you dare to call Obama one! Shame. I hate Stones, by the way.

Is it really the most radical? More radical than say freeing the slaves?


the massive cuts to defense and intelligence thats not radical?


Which ones are the radical ones, exactly?


obamas new nuclear stance isnt radical?


Was it radical when it was Reagan's stance? How is it more radical?


the list could go on.....fact remains new is right

Could go on and on but does not for some reason. Lacks any sources or real facts as well. Interesting. I suppose Newt is now an man of honesty and integrity then, ok.

Perhaps he can finally start when he is done selling the nation on Obamacare in three years. Hey, whatever is important though.

Wow! You are a fan of individual people and you can remember their names. That is EXACTLY the same thing.


I am a fan of Megadeth. The band consists of Dave Mustaine and ... um ... uh .... shoot. I guess I am lying?

I almost choked when I heard him say these things. Yes, we should cling to every word he says. He's such an intelligent and honest fellow.

Gingrich was all pomp and circumstance when he was leading the Clinton Impeachment, only to have it revealed that he'd been having an affair himself!!

The only thing that shocked me about that, was there was a poor woman somewhere who let him touch her. Ewwww. Not a fan.

Do you even get it
Your analogy isn't even in the same ballpark. Pardon the pun for those of you who don't follow sports. At least you can name one member of a band that you claim to be a fan of.

How long did Obama live in Chicago?? Still not one player... It would have been easier if he just said that he wore the sox cap as a joke or lost a bet.

A lie is a lie and he got caught by accident. If this were Bush, Cheney or Quayle making this type of blunder you people would be all over it along with the MSM.

He is an inexperienced hack with radical views who can't think off of the cuff without lying to cover his tail. ONce a liar always a liar. The lies simply grow to fit the scale of the liar. He is your man. So good luck.

My brain hurts after a long day of arguing with idiots. Not you of course or any fellow ATSer for that matter. ATS is a sanctuary.

Yeah it is much better that he goes on TV to play basketball during the NCAA tournament. I'm so glad he spent time following college hoops so that he could fill out his "March Madness" brackets on ESPN. Those things have a lot more to do with running the country.

We need to at least argue (or take digs) with a bit of intellectual honesty.

My analogy is bad? You said that remembering the name of John Bonham because you are a fan of John Bonham is the same thing. He said he was a fan of the team and he knew the name of the team. Same thing. I listen to lots and lots of bands that are mostly made up of a static group of 4 - 5 people. I cannot name any members from many of them.


How long did Obama live in Chicago?? Still not one player... It would have been easier if he just said that he wore the sox cap as a joke or lost a bet.


I have lived where I live for decades and I cannot even name all the sports teams from here let alone one player. What does that mean, exactly? What is your point?



A lie is a lie and he got caught by accident. If this were Bush, Cheney or Quayle making this type of blunder you people would be all over it along with the MSM.


They too lied all the time and it was all over the MSM just like this is. I saw this on MSNBC of all places so what is your point, again?

Oh right, because it is a lie about a sports team it is somehow important? You have failed to explain that over how many posts now?


He is an inexperienced hack with radical views who can't think off of the cuff without lying to cover his tail. ONce a liar always a liar. The lies simply grow to fit the scale of the liar. He is your man. So good luck.


Personal ranting noted and dismissed. I could really care less about your personal issues with the man. That is on you.

I know, I am so sorry. I should be more worried about him naming athletes than say lying about something political. Gotcha, genius!

I can not believe people still take Gingrich seriously. This is the guy that helped spear head the shut down of the US government because he was snubbed by the president during a plane flight.

His own party was ready to throw him under the bus and vote him out as Speaker in 1997. At least twenty Republicans joined together to attempt a coup. They were going to force him to resign or vote to vacate the chair. Gingrich was also fined $300,000 by the house ethics committee.

The guy is a power hungry radical. He is a red meat conservative that wants to push an agenda serving the rich at the expense of every one else.

Lincoln was arguably the most radical president in U.S. history. It's interesting that Lincoln is one of President Obama's heroes.

Jefferson should also be pretty high up on the radical list.

And of course, there was FDR, who saved us from the first Great Depression. He stimulated the economy through massive federal spending and he also passed Social Security. I do think Roosevelt is one of the president's role models. He's also one of mine.

Newt just knows that "radical" is a word that makes conservatives pee in their pants and pony up their inheritance to pay for political campaigns. He also knows if you say "Jesus" a couple of times in a speech then that makes you a man divinely ordained by God.

The most radical thing that has happened in the last couple of years is the Republicans have had their asses kicked to the curb by the American people and they just can't stand it.

So they think if they say the same old things in the same old way they have since the Neocons took over the party that will somehow miraculously change everything for them.

I think maybe the young and the liberals have underestimated just how much some people hate and fear even the word "change." Newt and his fellow reactionaries know just how to play on that fear. Who knows, maybe Newt will rise again in the GOP.

They sure are casting about for a savior.

It's just astounding that somebody calls Obama an "elitist". Is this because he can finish a complete sentence without making a fool of himself, like his predecessor or that moose hunter from Alaska? Is he lack luster because Republicans in the Congress adopted the policy of "Damn the country, Obama must fail"?


Perhaps it's simply because he is an elitist. I suspect that once you stop looking at Obama through the prism of republican hatred you might see Obama for what he truly is.


I have grown out of being an Obama liker... But an Elitist?

That was the most fantastic double speak I have ever heard,
especially considering the fact that the term was framed when he was running
against a guy with, MANY MANY CARS as well as property, plus being the
the III (3rd). So I hate to argue this one out but I think Obama has been one of the
least elite president in a long time. Not from a lending dynasty, movie star
or whatever else.

Come to think you an Newt are sort of perpetuating the same thing, move the bar
of truth as it pertains to reality and repeat, repeat, repeat... I recall some other blokes who used the same idea a while back, just saying... There is enough ammo to run on with in the confines of some form of reality, but this fantasy based stuff will make matters worse and might prove to be dangerous one day.

Newt, Obama is hardly radical, he is more like a moderate republican, I make him look like Margaret Thatcher. The only radical thing is the reaction to him in general, lets be serious and adult like.

I tell you what, the republican pundits have been working overtime on their smear campaign. They say nothing else but to smear Obama.

They reek of fear, or they wouldn't be working so hard to convince you.

Fair enough. You have your opinions and I have mine. Time will tell whether we shift our current opinions. And I can assure you I have no interest or motivation to "move the bar of truth" along with Newt. He too is an elitist shrew. And you can pretend it's "fantasyland" nonsense to levy a charge of elitism while Obama services the interests of his billionaire friends and union leaders and takes his temporary loan of power to enact as many permanent policies based on his ideologies as possible. You're welcome to pretend he's a common man serving the interest of the people if you wish, but anyone without partisan leanings can easily see through this guy's transparency.

having lived under carter,reagan,bush,clinton,bush2 and now obama.

i see things more clearly than most people here.

lincoln freed the slaves yeah a republican wasnt a democrat and how many republican senators where in the kkk?

comparing reagans stance to obama is ridiculous. at the height of the cold war the us aresenal was over 10,000 different time and a different enemy. if you cant see the difference

and seriously your free to say or believe whatever you want but two words of advice.

lose the attitude and when your not posting any facts or sources dont criticize someone else.

liberals have time and time agian rewritten history and made up their own facts as they see fit.

holding up fdr as a great president is a joke:

he spent like crazy
thru japanese americans in prison camps
stole the gold from fort knox to cover up the how bad he spent
and stole gold from the american public.

roosevelt was a joke.


feel free to respond im sure you will but i have moved on.

I hardly think he is acting in the common mans interests despite the constant charges of socialism. Socialism is another example of what I was referring to; a socialist who passes a bill which helps the "capitalist pigs" insurance companies??? hardly a socialist... it seems many of you (strongly anti Obama) do not have his ideology pegged at all.

IMO Elitist is not someone who owns 1 house, 1 car and takes out student loans as Obama has, Elitist by all reasonable terms would be somebody who has means that are far and above the standard of a normal person. I own 2 cars and have a share in 4 pieces of property, MORE than the President in regards to personal property. However
I am barely making it at this point, do yard work for extra cash and wok two part time low paying jobs, am I an elitist? So lets be REALISTIC with the notions we throw about.
ya?

My only dog in this is; this constant chase of completely uniformed rhetoric, A Chicago style politician who is an elitist


Chicago Style you get your ass beat by a local henchman open hostility to incite terror,
OVERT.

Elites whack your ass with a hired gun who survives by remaining COMPLETELY unknown to the "authorities", COVERT.

Can you even perceive how FAR apart these two concepts are? Yet both elitist and Chicago style have been leveled in this thread... Then there is Socialist and HCR -

From a physiological stand point this makes rationale contingent upon these irrational
charges. This standard WILL come back and bight you guys in the ass ONE DAY, for you will have to wade thru some new form of cross eyed partisanship. But being human the desire to achieve a simple objective will likely trump concern for the future or America at large.

I will fight to maintain some form of reality, this is the aspect of American life that we must all defend or suffer, complete control thru total, absolute manipulation... Obama will come and go, the TV inspired quadruple talk will fester and eventually kill the boundaries of truth and assertion, true friend of the elite and tyranny mind you.

The OP is not an Obama fan as I know him and has anti Obama past activity here. However he seems to find this woeful onslaught exaggeration and distortion to be detrimental, I do too and I have tried to explain the cause and effect IMO.

Exactly. For whatever reason, whenever I call out BS....I'm automatically called a liberal or progressive.

I don't consider myself to be anything anymore politically. I think both Libertarians AND Progressives have some wonderful ideas. And in reality...this is what the Republican Party and the Democratic Party should be.

I'm tired of corporate politicians. Everyone wants to think it's the unions...but the unions don't have the power that people seem to think. Union membership is down drastically and has been under attack since Reagan.

Unions are not responsible for the mass exodus of jobs this country has seen...it's the lack of enforcement of anti-trust laws and terrible trade policies that have caused it. If it weren't for unions...much of what is left of our manufacturing base would be gone. We simply cannot compete with slave labor when our tariffs average 2 percent. It's common sense.

People complain about the costs of vehicles...which are crazy high...but that is because our standard of living is deteriorating.

We HAVE to protect our economy. Tell your congressing that we need to reform our trade laws to make small businesses in our country competitive again. (I may look like a skipping record with this as I constantly bring it up in many of my posts...but damnit we have to do it!!) People don't seem to see how dire this is that it be done.

When our standard of living goes up....many of the problems we are facing now will start to go away. It's the only way to get our economy back on the right track IMO....oh and we need to reign in the federal reserve...end the wars...campaign finance reform...etc.

Honestly I don't think we can do anything until we have campaign finance reform.

We simply cannot continue on this road.

Well the funny thing about corporate politicians, unions and Obama is that those are both INTELLECTUALLY competing ideas. Obama cannot realistically be PRO labor
and PRO management, I mean this is HOW fricking ridiculous is this idea???
He could be pragmatic in an approach, practicing a give and take, but I mean there are 1500 layers of B$#@$@#$ before one can even behold the truth of the matter.
But both??? That is like being in the NAACP and KKK at the same time-

AND EVERY ISSUE IS PAINTED LIKE THIS

I am so sick of this fog of stupid -

I am so affronted by this I don't even have the energy to address REAL shortcomings
because I have to spend four hours trying to isolate the BOLD and BASIC TRUTH.
Obama is three competing ideas and all ideas indicate EVERY possible branch off of this construct. This is EXACTLY WHY the TEA PARTIES are FOS... They talk B$#@$@#$
and ignore the legitimate stuff.

I always hear "liberals think with their emotions"

I now believe that is VERY rich, the entire anti Obama machine is fueled with emotional
platitudes and subjective charges.

How about Obama has augmented the suspension of Habius Corpus?

Simple, true, AWEFUL and crickets

Instead

Obama is a Maoist, hates America, hates your freedoms

- ALL EMOTIONAL DRIVEN

pay attention to this Dave - you can see who deals in emotions if you want to see the truth of the matter...

This is what needs to stop

Anyhow I agree, nothing will change if we do not get the lobbyist out and the TARIFFS UP

Chicago style political tactics have been deployed throughout this admin. Obama thumbs his nose and makes fun of those who disagree with him. He has publicly mocked over half of those who frequent sites like ATS to discuss their beliefs about 2012, Armageddon, the rapture, UFO's etc.

All of that BS coming from a man who wanted to unite America on a bipartisan ideal. The bitter reality is that he and his henchmen are the ones who are actually creating and feeding the divide in this nation. Hell, just watch Gibbs' behavior and attitude during the daily pressers. His demeanor is a direct reflection of the demeanor of the President. The press corps is close to walking out for good.

Obama is just fanning the flames and Gingrich is free to express is views. BTW it is not just Gingrich. Obama's tumbling numbers tell the story as well.

What the hell is really happening?

I have no f-ing clue anymore

Obama, by the laws of physics should be wearing a Turban, jack boots, a white powdered wig, a mustache, smoking a crack pipe, living in Frisco, in a commune mansion, lined with Lenin statues, staffed with poor inbred white folks.

But the truth is sooooooooo far from this picture, how is that for a strategy?

Its like taking the quartz and leaving the gold...
