If it isn't the birth certificate issue and all its myriad sub issues, its NWO agendas or the fearmongering over healthcare and socialism.
In the end no supporter of Obama has to say a word because the detractors end up just sounding so out of touch, that they validate a supporters point of view.

Im sorry to hear what happened. I agree with you about the whole system being messed up and how outsourceing led to the housing problem. Republican and Dems are basically the same. I just find the Dems to be the lesser of two evils.
The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can "throw the rascals out" at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy.

Entitlements is getting something for nothing.
I've paid, still pay for what I receive. In terms of my service; I pay. In terms of my taxes; I pay.
But I ask for nothing that I haven't earned or worked hard to get.

I am an unabashed Obama supporter, have been since he was running for Senator.
I don't talk about it much because I feel its poor form to discuss such things.
I'll say something, then you'll get snippy, then I'll get an attitude, until pretty soon, we're both pissed, and still believe what we originally believed.
Seems kind of futile.
I am no political science expert, but he's alot better than the fourth Stooge who held the office before him...
I think any sitting President is going to be the whipping boy of the outraged, Mr. Obama is no different.
So, have your fun, say what you want, but the man has shown nothing but class since he took the Office.

The left right paradigm is a fraud, pure and simple. Please, please, please understand that. This country was bought and paid for a long time ago. These arguments add up to nothing more than "my dad can beat up your dad" arguments in first grade. Take a deep breath, get beyond the illusion.

True. But for giggles, let's give Obama another award, maybe a Pulitzer? He already has the Nobel. Maybe that will spread some more hope and change.
