other than in your own head, subby, when was he ever blameless for his own faults?

As a result, three-quarters say the U.S. shouldn't play the role of world policeman.

Fine, we'll just pull back our expensive two-ocean navy and let the sea lanes keep themselves open.  Oh wait, you mean there's more to being the world's policeman than engaging in random brushfire wars?
 
2013-09-10 11:30:35 AM  
Well lets be honest. Only 53% of the population didn't hold him accountable for his mistakes.

And there is about 20% that think he can't even chew crackers correctly

The problem is we don't want to put out the brushfires anymore.

Keep the sea lanes open but pay us in something other than cheaply made goods from Second and Third World countries.

We definitely blame him for this thing he hasn't done yet.

Sometimes you have to put out brushfires before they spread, and no one else wants to do it.  We have a bad track record, granted, but it's not like anyone else is going to step up.

So  subby, all those teabaggers who've been screaming since 2008 aren't Americans?
 
2013-09-10 11:58:29 AM  
I'm pretty sure there aren't many people out there who've held him blameless for his faults. There may be some outliers, sure, but for the most part, no.

What YOU think are his faults and what I think are his faults probably differ quite a bit.

ManateeGag: other than in your own head, subby, when was he ever blameless for his own faults?


From what I've been told, liberals think he is The Second Coming - God incarnate - flawless and perfect in every way.

I have yet to meet one of these liberals, but "conservatives" insist that they are everywhere.

More likely conservative think their "everything Obama does is bad" position means the "other side" is the same.

Gee, I wonder how that could have happened?

I think this current crop of Republicans MUST be the only party in history to be SO ANGRY that an elected official from a different party is still upholding several values theirs (claims to) hold.
 
2013-09-10 01:29:50 PM  
From the headline I take it that the tea party is starting to blame Obama for things he's actually responsible for and that are faults instead of the type of lettuce he eats and for Congress cutting the defence budget for the consulates?  Because that would be different for those American people.

I think a desire to not go to war is very very different from the misguided and, largely incorrect tea bagger mentality about who is 'to blame' for any given event in US history.

1. THE HEADLINE IS AN ABSOLUTE LIE
2. It has nothing to do with the farking article.
3. The article is Americans not wanting Obama's war.
4. ..because nobody could tell what he actually will do.
5. And it's a farking CNN poll.

Lol.

Only if a Republican wins.

If a Democrat wins, they will be crowing that the new Democrat president is the libbiest lib to ever lib, even libbier than Obama, and Obama wasn't that bad, considering what he was *wink*.

I can't find the link for the life of me, but there was an article I read awhile ago about how Obama appealed to liberals/Democrats to contact their representatives about health care, and almost no one did. Tea Partiers, though, were constantly calling.

You can't complain that your voice isn't being heard if you don't have a voice in the first place.
