I've unfortunately already devoted a few hours to replying to other posts I've neglected in the last week, so I'm going to just reply to this

I don't really have time to address your late posts in detail, but I can address this one and your outright lying signature.
Politifact has been keeping track of the Obameter
for the problems and campaign promises
he's worked on.
Interestingly enough, on 121 separate issues Obama has chosen to actually do something about it, instead of blaming Bush.
Look, I provided actual evidence instead of pulling a random out of thin air!

If libs/dems want someone to blame for rise of the so-called tea party movement, they only need to look in the mirror.
You're right, a partially racist movement can easily spring up when a black man gets a position of power
When you add the vitriolic attacks for years on Bush and every other conservative
I'm sorry, are you accusing the American left of vitriol with the way Obama is being treated by the right now?
Nobody question Bush's citizenship
Nobody questioned his religion
Few questioned his patriotism
People may have compared him to Hitler, but not in the same breath as comparing him to Stalin and Pol Pot.
Nobody made fun of him for his name (accept the occasional pun on the hilarity of having both a "Dick" and a "Bush" in the White House)
Nobody called him a terrorist
Nobody said he was actively working against the nation of America.
The Presidential vitriol was pretty bad under Bush, but it can be expected against a president who didn't receive a majority of the popular vote for
his first term and was incredibly unpopular in his second.
Obama's popularity, on the other hand, has remained more or less steady, the only changes being in how people on his side of the fence view.
I mean, how about looking at the way the right has demonized Nancy Pelosi and Hilary Clinton?
I've heard the name 'Hitlery' thrown around more than once, and I've seen political ads for politician in GEORGIA attacking Nancy Pelosi directly.
The right is great at demonization,
to shoving the current socialist agenda down everyone's throat using any slimy, back door means possible, you can expect to see a backlash.
I'm currently in Malta, a center-right nation on average, probably a bit more right if you consider a few things.
Let's see a few of the things we have....
Oh, universal healthcare from the government.
And we have the world's 5th best healthcare system?
It's not a 'socialistic agenda' and it's not being 'shoved down your throats'. Here's the thing I don't get, how was nearly a year of
discourse and debate with plenty of concessions given on healthcare 'shoved down your throats'?
Obama's administration and the current senate have tried to do everything they can to make peace, they've tried to give concessions, but they really
didn't need to do it so much...they do have an insane majority in both houses, they could steamroll legislation all they wanted, but they don't.
Anyway, that's all the time I have for today.
