Everyone should of voted for Ron Paul.He has the right idea when it comes to running this world Unlike Mr Obama who has and will continue to run it into the bankruptcy,poverty ridden world i see not far ahead of us and then blame it on others.More people should have researched all the presidential candadites before actually voting instead of making a judgement call based on popularity polls.

YES.

And so are the dreams of Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Newt Gingrich, John McCain, Charlie Crist, etc etc. Dreams of getting rich by bamboozling people. Dreams of power. Dreams of either a socialist nightmare or a corporate-run faux-free country ... depending on which person we are talking about.

Oh .. if people had actually read Obama's 'dream' book before the elections .. I mean REALLY read it .. the rat never would have been elected.

God, this whole "blame Obama" angle never ceases.

Obama never ceases blaming Bush for his own inept screwups. However, in the case of Obama, it's his own "chickens coming home to roost." (in the words of the racist cult he was a member of for 20 years).

Can't happen. Beck has already said he won't ever run and Palin is completely unelectable.

Very true Janky, He wants to look good. I find it laughable when people call him a communist or socialist-They make it plainly obvious they don't know what communism or socialism are when they do it. The Red Scare is a classic boogey man in American politics though. Why? Because people in this country are ignorant as to what it really is. Communism as practiced by the Soviet Union was not what any of the major architects of the movement had in mind. Marx didn't even support what was happening in Russia when he was alive as he didn't support nationalist movements. The again, I actually read Das Kaptial, Not too many people in this country can say they ever did read it. I find it funny when people take digs at Obama in my presence saying "Oh I bet he loved Das Kaptial". I should hope so. If they had ever read it they would discover the book doesn't offer solutions, it merely describes the end result of capitalism. Marx foresaw quite a bit of what has happened in the last few years.

Personally, I abhor those who try to please everyone. You can't. In fact, you shouldn't try to please old-ass people who can't fathom things on this planet have to change. I don't entertain such people. Progress is worth any price you pay for it. When people say "We need to go back...", that's when I stop listening. Americans are famous for being permanent ostriches with their heads in the sand. They will not move until their survival is at stake. Then you have those who won't move period. They'd rather die. Fear controls their life.

The Republicans are playing the old Lee Atwood southern strategy and it's going to bite them in the butt. You are very correct in that the more they push it the further their candidates have to move to the right. To a lot of people on this site, that's great. They believe they can somehow fix this country. Truth is, once the Republicans do get control of Congress (and they will) you won't see much movement. Except maybe in the direction of the ultra-nationalism they love to play these days.

Obama isn't even a real liberal. We don't have those in American. We have people who are slightly left of center. You've got to leave the country to find real "Progressives" (oh those boogey men Beck abhors). This country is going to get left behind while we argue over if Obama hates White people and is a secret Muslim. China is already investing millions in next-generation nuclear power. The rest of the world graduates more scientists than the U.S. does today. China is also leading the way with light rail and infrastructure improvement. They are not going to sit around and argue about garbage. They are just going to do what they have to progress. I'm sure they are the ones who will find an alternative to oil as well.

well I can say that the whisper campaign about Obama's origin, religion and the like has had a negative effect on some people I know, the opposite effect many have hoped for. At some point it become ridiculous and it starts turning people off to the idea of hating Obama as it appears contrived and extremely dramatized.


Well, contrary to some "whisper campaign," the written words of Barack Obama, Sr. and Barack Obama II ring loud and clear.

No hidden agendas in either case, but straightforward proclamations of their desire for the government redistribution of wealth even up to the confiscation of private property and 100% of earned income.

Seems pretty clear that if Obama draws upon the "Dreams From My Father," that dad's message speaks for itself.

The problem is that since Reagan, EVERY administration has spent more than the first ones combined.

Obama has had one budget year and spent $3.55 Trillion.

The last 4 budget years of the Bush Administration spent $11.1 Trillion.

I don't know what it even means to compare spending prior to Reagan, budgets have been between 2.5 and 3.5 trillion for the last decade. We're not going back folks.

For one Obama has not created a war and let his families cronies suck off your tax dollars because he could, Obama has not sat around while his cabinet members and family friends get rich off $5.50 gasoline and various contracts,,, you could have tuned in, but this stuff did not bother you then did it?


In reality, Obama funneled hundreds of billions of dollars to his own set of cronies. He ensconced them in positions of power as his czars and advisors.

I have never been a Bush supporter, even during his gubernatorial campaigns.

Pathetic personal attacks do not change the written aspirations of the threeBarack Obama's:
the Father, the Son we hear in public, and the Son we see in his actions and "dreams."

Great. So it was Bush's fault. Blame laid. We know. Get over it and fix it instead of just pointing fingers


I'm not JUST pointing fingers. What Bush did to this country in eight years cannot be "fixed" in 2 years, especially with the CONSTANT barrage of interference, obstruction and intestinal blockage that defines the current Republican party.

The politics of fear; oh how it works so well, has throughout history and continues to this day.
A people afraid is a people easily swayed and molded to conform to the ones ideas who is spreading the propaganda.

This is and was the Republican Party's way of governance. Scare the people, further our agenda, scare the people further our agenda. Wash, rinse, repeat.

This is the kind of unsupported claim that does nothing to add to a serious debate. He hasn't funneled hundreds of billions of dollars to his cronies. He would be in a jail cell right now if he did, regardless of whether he's the president. The Republican party would be all over this like a fat kid on a cupcake but there's not a single claim of this from any elected Republican. Try to stick to the truth.

I've been thinking lately, why do we even HAVE a president?
His 'people' don't necessarily like him. His 'people' don't necessarily agree with him and the majority of His 'people' didn't necessarily even vote him in.

I mean, why have a Representative of a country where so many of His 'people' don't even like him?

Why can't every state govern itself? Let's keep Congress and the House but let's rid this presidency role. It's not necessary. I really don't know what he does that requires us to have a president in the first place.

The POTUS used to serve and protect his people/country. Hell, they even FOUGHT for us! But lately the past few presidents seem to have more enemies within his very own country than abroad.
Somethings not right and I'm ashamed of this country!

they can see the reality now. 60% plus market rebound, record corporate profits, record low taxes, steady drop in new unemployment, steady increase in manufacturing, retail sales, home sales, auto sales, etc. The economy's not 'fixed' by a long shot, but things have been improving steadily since early 2009 and all the conservatives have to go on is the scary stuff.


When 25% of market volume on any given day is driven by government-owned or controlled stocks such as CITI and BofA, the stock market is no longer an accurate barometer of anything except government desperation for phony "numbers" to point to,regardless of their authenticity. When Treasury borrowing is propped up by Fed intervention, that side of the market no longer reflects a "free market." Many people are taken in by such chicanery to their detriment.

There has been no net increase in manufacturing since inventories were depleted, then replenished to meet demand. There is no demand to support any make-believe "steady increase in manufacturing."

Retailers can't even sustain "back-to-school" sales, much less day-to-day traffic. There is no steady increase in retail sales.

Home sales? You've got to be kidding! Existing home sales are plummeting, new home sales are at the lowest level ever measured, and foreclosures will top 1 million this year; there is a 12 to 16-month backlog of housing inventory when it has generally been 6 to 7 months in the past!

Auto sales? Even after GM grants the biggest incentives ever, its sales lag everyone else.

If you honestly believe that " things have been improving steadily," then I'd hate to see what "problems" are.

Bottom line, both Obama's have laid out their "dreams" for anyone to see. Junior can't go back and erase what's been published, so he acts as if he and his father never said what they truly believe. If that's what you want as well, then you're going to get exactly what you asked for.

According to most Americans, they want no such thing.

You claim to be all of these yet you voted and got swept up in Obama-mania? You contradict yourself kind Sir.
So you are an Independent then, correct? Or are you one who does not agree with labels?

You are correct. I agree. Still, blaming someone ALL THE TIME, really starts to make one sound like a whiner. Don't you think?

Listen, I am not here to flame you or attack you in any way. I enjoy your views and don't disagree with all you say. I appreciate you keeping it civil. So many are un-able to do this. I tip my hat and extend my hand.

Barack Obama's dreams are not ruining America.


You get full credit for actually answering the question posed in the OP. Although I think that his dreams are the antithesis of "the American Dream," I understand that many of his supporters understood what he intended, and really do want to see the government and country he envisions.


I was listening! I didn't get caught up in the frenzy of "change and hope" as many did. I listened to his pragmatic approach and knew that it wasn't going to be all fixed in 2 years.


OK, I'll grant that maybe you were listening; but were HEARING, were you looking behind the rhetoric, to see what he REALLY wanted? Your reference to "his pragmatic approach," tells me you did not.

I do not know of anyone, left or right, who would say that Obama's "approach" has been anything close to pragmatic.

I did not "get swept up" in anything. I answered that accusation in my first post in this thread. I did not contradict myself. I am not an independent. I have never been a member of ANY political party and have voted all across the political spectrum.



You are correct. I agree. Still, blaming someone ALL THE TIME, really starts to make one sound like a whiner. Don't you think?


I rarely bring up Bush's name these days, but I felt it appropriate, considering the subject of the thread. And no, I don't think blaming the guilty party is whining. Obama is responsible for what he does in his presidency, but not what happened before. I actually think the people who are blaming Obama for the state of the country (the economy, wars, corporate ownership) are the whiners.
There's plenty to blame Obama for, but this ain't it.



I tip my hat and extend my hand.


Likewise.

No.

Obama hasn't been in office long enough for any of HIS policies to take effect.

The Bailout was a GW act.

Obama saved us billions by putting strings on the bailouts that prevents Wall street fat cats from continuing to give themselves huge bonuses.

Reaganomics is ruining America, with the foolish belief in that right wing version of communism, sold as a free market.

All the idiots out there still clinging to the free market con after it has been proven a failure through 3 repub presidents are ruining America.

Lets here the whine, "But GW wasn't a real conservative." His admin put in place free market policies which brought us the Gulf oil leak disaster, and most lately the huge explosion in San Bruno CA., and of course the rampant fruad on wallstreet that destroyed our economy.

Look, the truth is out there and investors have made a crapload of money in the market since March 2009. They've been getting rich on the recovery while you all have been arguing about Obama's birth certificate and crying about how bad things are.

Too bad Bush can't run again, you could vote for him!


OldDragger,
Your post is same-old mantra from you...but I believe even you can let go the wayside. It does apply still to some corporate Repulicans true, but you know all the other pursuasions are dead-on in their criticism which this OP spells out factually...right?
He hasn't lived-up to your satisfaction, right?

"We need to eliminate power structures that have been built through excessive accumulation so that not only a few individuals shall control a vast magnitude of resources as is the case now."
The senior Obama proposed that the state confiscate private land and raise taxes with no upper limit. In fact, he insisted that "theoretically there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed."
Remarkably, President Obama, who knows his father's history very well, has never mentioned his father's article. Even more remarkably, there has been virtually no reporting on a document that seems directly relevant to what the junior Obama is doing in the White House.



Obama's quote does not have any direct reference to his fathers article. In fact this statement is really just another lie. He says it to appeal to the poor working class of people. Yet he continues to do the exact opposite.

I'm not disagreeing with your opinion of our President. However, I do not agree with the references you are giving. It seems to me it is out of context.

Is Obama ruining the country?

Is the Mosque "near" Ground Zero bad for the country?

No and No.

It's what you hear in the media. See, the mainstream news has lost it's purpose. Instead of journalism or presenting actual news, each news outlet tells you how to feel. If you watch Fox, chances are you're a self denial bigot and against everything Obama does, even if he did find a cure for cancer.

So, no, Obama isn't ruining the country. There are a few policies of his I'm against but really, he isn't ruining America. However, Glenn Beck fans believe otherwise.
