udhq: Deep Contact: He also broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay.

And this is exactly the kind of REAL issue that we could be talking about if the right weren't still trying to make scandals out of things like arugula and flag pins.


The recent trial of Sulaiman Abu Ghaith would seem to be evidence that we could have tried all the detainees in American criminal courts, but then the CIA wouldn't get to have their torturous fun, and the GOP would lose a talking point.

/Where have all the pragmatists gone?

Guys, guys guys.

You need to co-ordinate these attacks better.

One of you say there's a logical reason it's not closed, the other says it's a derpy question, and the third says it's a real issue but it's the Republicans fault.

I expect more from the Obama Defense Guild.

Well that's all I got for now.  Let the hatred flow......

It's so hard to hate someone as stupid as you. You try so hard though.

/the drone comment on the first picture is plenty of reason not to take any of those seriously

Of course, if just one of those silly things is wrong, the entire thing must be wrong.  You must take the same approach to everything.  If I don't agree with one of these things, everything else is wrong also.  Good luck with that thinking, imbecile.

Oh, is that the only thing wrong? Can you prove everything else you posted, or are you too busy suckling at Rush Limbaugh's teat to care what "facts" are?


Since I posted those mostly for the humor, I will give just one example by asking some questions.

Am I free to refuse health insurance for myself if I so choose?  Or am I currently forced by law to pay the health insurance industry due to mandatory participation.

Are the liberals trying to make it much harder for law abiding citizens to own firearms by which they may protect themselves?  (because as you know criminals are going to follow those rules right?)

Has the Obama terms done anything in the way of reversing the stifling freedom limiting Patriot Act?

Until Edward Snowden made media waves on the abuses the NSA are committing, was Obama working on protecting your privacy freedoms?

Has the transparency that Obama promised during his campaigns come to fruition?

I find it funny that you and your like automatically accuse those who disagree with liberal policy with Obama in office racist, militant christian people.  You are in fact as bad as racists are, only instead of using the color of a persons skin, you do it because they don't agree with your ideas.

Oh and assuming I'm a republican would be an error on your part.  No matter who came up with these ideas, I would be against them.  Just as much as I am apposed to any religious nut jobs who want to force their morals on me as well.

Stuart Wolfe: UrukHaiGuyz: iheartscotch: I've come to the conclusion that certain people really believe that, if you do not like the 'bama, you are racist. For only racists would fail to love our lord and savior.

You've come to a really stupid conclusion.

No, it really isn't. Elsewhere, I noted that I had serious problems with Obama because of the IRS scandal,

What scandal, exactly?

the ay Benghazi was handled,

How would you have handled this?

Fast and Furious,

The Bush program?

spying on the AP,

?

the NSA actions,

Excellent point! Good job!

Gitmo still in use,

Speak with Congress.

and the completely comical and amateur way Obamacare was trotted out

Sucked, but not actually his job.


Anything else?

Of course you don't.

You're off the hook, don't bother trying to get your ween all up finding things to lie about.


No, he's right on that one.  He says Congress has blocked him from closing it but that's BS.

Obama could simply pardon (or commute the sentences of) everybody held in Gitmo.  The power of the President to do so is absolute and subject to no review by Congress or the courts.

Now, this would result in releasing some actual terrorists (as well as some completely innocent people, and some people who weren't exactly terrorists but weren't exactly good guys either).  However, it's clear that nobody held in Gitmo could be convicted of anything in a fair trial at this point, and, when you can't get a conviction, you are supposed to let them go (unless you run a banana republic without the rule of law).  This applies to child molesters and rapists and serial killers...and terrorists.

Carn: GrizzlyPouch: Carn: GrizzlyPouch: Carn: 59% hate the politician they imagine Obama to be.  If he had an R next to his name and weren't quite so brown, he'd be the second coming of Ronnie St Reagan.  He's pretty close on the spectrum.

There are 30 comments in this thread

Only 2 mentioning race. Why are you so focused on what color people are ya racist?

Because it matters to many of the people that hate him?

You got a citation?

Show me where somebody said I hate this man because he's black.

How bout circumstantial evidence? Like maybe his race kept him from attaining high political office or being successful?

Shirley, you're not serious.

Racist tea party signs

Obama's plan: white slavery  - granted, most of these are just offensive, not necessarily racist


From Aug last year:
Earlier the same week, a crowd in Phoenix, "47 percent negro," sang "Bye Bye Black Sheep," and carried signs, "Impeach the Half-White Muslim!" outside Obama's event.

From October:
 "The Tea Party has engaged in relentless racist attacks against our African-American President. For example, when the President visited my home of Orlando, Tea Party protesters shouted 'Kenyan Go Home.' Other examples include Tea Party chants of 'Bye Bye, Blackbird,' and Tea Party posters saying 'Obama's Plan: White Slavery,' 'Imam Obama Wants to Ban Pork' and 'The Zoo Has An African Lion, and the White House Has a Lyin' African.'"
Many of the racists participating in the Stormfront discussion say they themselves are either tea party members or have attended multiple tea party meetings. But, to be sure, the tea party has quite literally millions of supporters and many, many of those people are not remotely racist, as the racists on Stormfront readily lament. And even the examples of racist language and signage at tea party rallies pales in comparison to the domestic terrorism carried out by the KKK -- cross-burning, beatings, lynchings, bombings, murder.

And:


Study: Tea Party supporters more likely to exhibit racism

'The study published in Race and Social Problems indicates that Tea Party members are not necessarily any more racist than typical white Americans, but that the movement's supporters are more likely to be, leading the researchers to conclude that, "what the Tea Party means to its members and what it represents to the large public may, in fact, not be the same thing." '

It's not like this stuff is rare or hard to find.


So how do you explain him getting elected?

Just curious, what did he lie about?

If you want to keep your health insurance, you can, if you want to keep your doctor, you can.

Holy shiat....you did it now, brother.

Yeah, he brought up the dumbest, most obviously false talking point he could.

What was the false part of that?

So far I've heard that over 4 million have lost their health insurance. Look it up.

Did you hear the part that those 4 million now have access to better health insurance because their previous policies weren't worth wiping your ass with?

Don't waste your time with these Obozo fellators.   The fact is, we've got Homobama on the ropes now.  He may have gotten away with Benghazi, but he can't outrun THE TRUTH forever.

American's are finally getting smart and wising up.  The wool is off the eyes of the sheeple.  The see the man behind the curtain.  The gears of Obama's wheels withing wheels are starting to grind.  The God Emporer doesn't just wear no clothes...

HE WEARS MOM JEANS!

You've come to a really stupid conclusion.

Ah, I apologize sir. I defer to your wisdom on this matter. Never mind the number of posts, using broad brush strokes mind you, painting the Republican Party as a bunch of racists; I'm sure that I am just reading them wrong.

Well, based on the things their duly elected Representatives say and the policies they push, there is a strong strain of racism running through the Republican Party (especially the Tea Party wing). That's not to say that it's impossible to dislike Obama for any number of valid reasons, or even that most Republicans are racist- just that they seem to tolerate it pretty well among their ranks.

Your messianic strawman hyperbole is what pushed it over the edge into idiocy, on par someone calling every detractor of Bush a "traitor" or somesuch.

I do agree that the tea party is suspect. I, personally, feel that a number of the nuts that got thrown out of the party with the Birchers came back with the tea party.

Some does not equal all; I'm sure that some democrats are racist. The only way to completely exclude racists would be to desolve all parties; no other measure would be 100% effective.

I, personally, dislike the fact that Obama didn't live up to his most important campaign promises. Yes, his tax policy is good. Yes, most of his policies are good. What really bothers me; is the ongoing attacks on the Bill of Rights. Especially, the attacks on the 2nd and 4th amendments. I really don't like secret courts and secret warrants; that smacks too much of 1984 for my tastes.

/ perhaps my messiah comment was slightly out of line


you think he should have overriden Congress to dismiss the FISA courts, or some other unconstitutional method to undo what his predecessors gave him? And as for guns.... I don't see how limiting access to high capacity magazines and flamethrowers is really destroying the 2nd amendment. You can still have guns for protection and hunting, but those former have no use except for mass destruction in wartime and should only be used by the military. If you disagree, find me the passage where the Founding Fathers mentioned either magazine size or flamethrowers.

hint: you can't, because those didn't exist until this century

Billified: Hugh2d2: Where's the "very disappointed in him" option?

This. Now the reasonable Democrats understand how reasonable Republicans feel about GW Bush. I'm not talking about the apologists for both men who try to convince us they walk on red or blue water. For those of us in the middle, who thought Bush was a better choice than Gore or Kerry, who also thought Obama was a better choice than McCain or Romney, it's been 16 long years of mostly disappointment. I honestly hope the two parties offer us Hillary Clinton (been there, done that) vs. Jeb Bush (been there, done that too) in 2016. Then maybe, just maybe, the nation will realize the two major parties really have nothing to offer and voters will consider looking at other candidates.


No more Clinton's. No more Bush's. That's the deal.

The "you're all racists!" b.s. is getting tiresome, time to give it up guys. right wingers hate Obama because they are partisans first and foremost; any Democrat  would be getting the same treatment from them. sure, there are some racially tinged attacks on Obama coming from the right (remember the birth certificate "issue"), but that isn't really the point. The substance of the attack is not important for deranged right wingers; they will attack the president for the sake of attacking the president. We saw this since day one, and it would have been the same no matter who the Democrats put into the white house.

It would be nice for all US citizens to get the same factual info without the bias of the differing media groups.  But with all the disapproval of the President, the major problem is not all with him.  Most of this catastrophe comes from congress.  Otherwise it would never even reach the Presidents desk.  It is my opinion that all elected positions have term limits, this way those in power can not continually cause harm to the people which they are supposed to be supporting.  Also lobbying should also be illegal, since the average joe gets trampled on by the huge corporations that buy laws that only help their industry.  But I'm an idealist..  sigh

You non-partisan hero you. It's funny, you posted for the lulz and then backed away immediately. You've made some interesting points elsewhere but the stupid pictures should be left for the trolls so we can properly ignore them.

Agent Nick Fury: Guys, guys guys.

You need to co-ordinate these attacks better.

One of you say there's a logical reason it's not closed, the other says it's a derpy question, and the third says it's a real issue but it's the Republicans fault.

I expect more from the Obama Defense Guild.


You're right, it probably would be easier for you to debate "LIBERALS" than liberals.

LazyMedia: manbart: The "you're all racists!" b.s. is getting tiresome, time to give it up guys. right wingers hate Obama because they are partisans first and foremost; any Democrat  would be getting the same treatment from them. sure, there are some racially tinged attacks on Obama coming from the right (remember the birth certificate "issue"), but that isn't really the point. The substance of the attack is not important for deranged right wingers; they will attack the president for the sake of attacking the president. We saw this since day one, and it would have been the same no matter who the Democrats put into the white house.

Clinton got pretty much the same treatment. Thanks goodness Obama hasn't had any actual scandals (IRSGhazifast&furious are about as significant as a fart in a hurricane). Imagine how much mischief a Republican special prosecutor would do with the teabaggers egging him on.


Yeah, Clinton is a good example of this. He too was attacked constantly for pointless BS. The right really has nothing of substance to attack the Democrats with because the Democrats have essentially occupied the entire political spectrum up to the center-right. The GOP has to rely on extremist views to differentiate themselves, and these views do not have enough support to actually win elections. So, constant attack mode is all they have left; distract from the issues by creating noise.

None of those are mutually exclusive.

noblewolf: It would be nice for all US citizens to get the same factual info without the bias of the differing media groups. But with all the disapproval of the President, the major problem is not all with him. Most of this catastrophe comes from congress. Otherwise it would never even reach the Presidents desk. It is my opinion that all elected positions have term limits, this way those in power can not continually cause harm to the people which they are supposed to be supporting. Also lobbying should also be illegal, since the average joe gets trampled on by the huge corporations that buy laws that only help their industry. But I'm an idealist.. sigh


I agree.  The people that continually cause harm to the people which they are supposed to be supporting should be replaced every four years with new people to cause harm to the people which they are supposed to be supporting.

I think they need to get rid of all of Congress and get all new people... except for my representative.  He's a good man.  I would also vote for a new Senator, but that would mean voting for the other guy so I can't do that.

But other than that, I'm all for replacing everyone that isn't representing my district.

Deep Contact: OK, one more pet peeve, he gave tax dollars to AIG executives, then pretended to be outraged about it. He's not even a good actor like Reagan.


Damn Obama and his time machine, going back to 2008 and giving a bailout to AIG! Yeah, Summers and Geithner ensured the bonuses were possible under TARP, but that doesn't mean Obama said, "Here, economy-wrecking scum, having a million bucks each!"

/Reagan was a TERRIBLE actor. Watch one of his movies sometime; they're awful.

Evil High Priest: Stuart Wolfe: UrukHaiGuyz: iheartscotch: I've come to the conclusion that certain people really believe that, if you do not like the 'bama, you are racist. For only racists would fail to love our lord and savior.

You've come to a really stupid conclusion.

No, it really isn't. Elsewhere, I noted that I had serious problems with Obama because of the IRS scandal,

What scandal, exactly?

the ay Benghazi was handled,

How would you have handled this?

Fast and Furious,

The Bush program?

spying on the AP,

?

the NSA actions,

Excellent point! Good job!

Gitmo still in use,

Speak with Congress.

and the completely comical and amateur way Obamacare was trotted out

Sucked, but not actually his job.

Anything else?B/b>


Yea, how come I can't get no TANG around here no more?

scotchlandia: Why sould anyone explain that? Why the hell is the federal government regulating the insurance industry at all? Insurance should be regulated at state level in accordance with the Tenth Amendment, which provides that any powers that are not enumerated in the Constitution are reserved for the states. So the ACA is illegal unless it amends the constitution. Yes, I know the supreme court ruled on this. It's still wrong.


The Constitution? That old, outdated document? It was written by a bunch of sexist, misogynistic, slave-owning humanists who couldn't even get the first amendment right! They failed to keep religion out of government and they allowed the citizens to get a hold of dangerous assault muskets. You can't seriously be trotting out that old thing!

Billified: Hugh2d2: Where's the "very disappointed in him" option?

This. Now the reasonable Democrats understand how reasonable Republicans feel about GW Bush. I'm not talking about the apologists for both men who try to convince us they walk on red or blue water. For those of us in the middle, who thought Bush was a better choice than Gore or Kerry, who also thought Obama was a better choice than McCain or Romney, it's been 16 long years of mostly disappointment. I honestly hope the two parties offer us Hillary Clinton (been there, done that) vs. Jeb Bush (been there, done that too) in 2016. Then maybe, just maybe, the nation will realize the two major parties really have nothing to offer and voters will consider looking at other candidates.


Oh please do. Very well put.

doubled99: The only reason anyone doesn't like Obama is because they are racists who can't stand a black man in charge. It's disgusting.

Agent Nick Fury: Satan's Bunny Slippers: Deep Contact: He also broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay.

Ok, now you're just stupid.  Want to explain WHY it's not closed?

Lord_Baull: Deep Contact: He also broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay.

Double down on the derp!

udhq: Deep Contact: He also broke his promise to close Guantanamo Bay.

And this is exactly the kind of REAL issue that we could be talking about if the right weren't still trying to make scandals out of things like arugula and flag pins.

Guys, guys guys.

You need to co-ordinate these attacks better.

One of you say there's a logical reason it's not closed, the other says it's a derpy question, and the third says it's a real issue but it's the Republicans fault.

Its funny how the conservative wing works more like a collective than the liberal wing does.

The world seems to be full of irony.
