Xuenchen, I haven't read the thread yet (8 pages at this point). But I want to add something that might be pertinent in explaining Obama's attitude.
One of the Islamic virtues is redistribution of wealth. This was a continuation of an old Arab custom. So there is a certain commonality among Muslims and Communists, Islamic Extremists or Jihadists are linked with the Left-wing worldwide.edit on 3-4-2012 by AuranVector because: (no reason given)
wow!!!......now the connection is between left-wing liberals, and islamic extremists?, what world do you live in?
that is the most ignorant, and/or naive statement that i have heard, since the last time i inadvertantly turned on FOX NEWS

I believe you are speaking from ignorance...because what you are saying don't match reality...the right wing hates Obama BECAUSE he is doing exactly what he said he would...if he didn't...they would love him.
In Genesis, Adam and Eve’s first-born son is Cain and their second-born son is Abel. Cain becomes a farmer and Abel becomes a shepherd. When Cain offers the fruit of his farming to God and Abel offers a lamb, God is pleased with Abel’s offering but not Cain’s. Cain then kills Abel. When God asks Cain where Abel is, Cain says: “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
Healthcare for all in a single payer model is the way to go. Today's insurance companies are crooks.

You know, the problem with taking Barry at his word this time about the wonderful and bright future plans he has for us all is that this isn't a new guy fighting against the establishment. HE IS THE ESTABLISHMENT and has been for over 3 yearsin D.C. and several more in the Senate.
He talks the talk so well even I find myself swayed occasionally by his speeches. His charisma is almost spooky. Fortunately, his skill and record are no match for his ability to sling the crap. All I have to do is remind myself that this was all said 3-4 years ago.....it was said often and with even MORE promise than this drivel.
3-4 years after it was all said before...We're still lamenting the same problems and they're as bad or worse. So before I even pretend to humor the man about what 4 MORE years can do I need to know what the LAST 3+ years actually accomplished to the LAST set of pie in the sky dream talk.
If track record defines a person, Obama is really better off pretending he IS really an outsider and he's running against himself. He sure can't stand on much more than the TALK of the past. It's all he's actually done to brag about.
Consumer protection act
dont ask, dont tell repeal
-attempt- at closing Gitmo
some health care reform passed (albeit a compromised pos with no single payer system)
there is more...stop using ATS flame board to measure the man and look at what was passed, what was promised, and what -exactly- is holding up the rest of the promises...you will see filibuster opposition to him fulfilling most of the campaign promises at the moment...
So, lets not talk about what he said and didn't do, lets look at what its not done...see the spike trap on the road verses be angry that the car stopped...
...stop using ATS flame board to measure the man and look at what was passed, what was promised, and what -exactly- is holding up the rest of the promises...you will see filibuster opposition to him fulfilling most of the campaign promises at the moment...
I am looking at what he's done and what he hasn't. He swore to end two wars
