It's Official - Obama is getting desperate!!


Where once it was rare for a politician or a commentator to accuse a president of lying, it happens routinely now. Obama’s speeches are filled with distortions and fabrications. Even members of his own party don’t trust him, regarding him as ruthlessly selfish. “An uncurious man,” said one.

I guess I should take my idiot sign off; and hand it to the President!!

Whatcha Think Captain??

Hell, Reagan was more to the left than Obama. Today's Republicans (conservatives) are seeking absolute ideological purity. That means they want to take this country back to where it was in the 1800 hundreds, or 1700, or 1600, or 1500, or.......

That doesn't bode well for you women. http://www.socialnatural.com/wp-cont...al-Natural.jpg

So if Republicans don't like what's taken place with the economy under Obama's first term, then they sure as heck shouldn't have been happy with Reagan's first term.

Yet, he got reelected and continues to be worshiped by Republicans to this very day. That's a real head scratcher.

When Regan took office there was double digit inflation and a car loan would be in the 10 to 15% range on a car loan.

Regan also cut taxes and cut Government. He also did some things I don't like, but I can tell you what they are in detail, just like Bush, he did some pretty stupid stuff as well, but a lot of good things too.

I'm not for baseless chants, I can tell you exactly why I don't like someone, and I have very few examples of the good Obama has done that is borderline corrupt if not fully so. He has outrIght lied on National press yet the press ignores his "Blurps" and was all over themselves because a republican VP misspells "Potatoe".... Yet nobody noticed when Obama claimed there was 57 states, when he was one of the 50 State Senators that have 2 Senators from each state, and this guy taught constatutional Law.

It comes back to.... What has Obama done that made American's lives better?

No takers? Or just Sheeple?

When Reagan was president both sides were willing to roll up their sleeves and work together on important issues.

Today, that's not the way it is. Republicans say no to everything Obama proposes. They're not at all willing to work with him. We have a very very dysfunctional government today.

Reagan had it much better when he was president.

And people want to know why this country is going to HELL in a hand basket. If the people in this country can't get along, what makes us think that politicians are going to be any different. Don't matter if you are from the left or right, the politicians are in it for themselves and not US. Until the people can come together in the US, the wagon continues to fall apart.

Often when people say that "people should come together," what they really mean is that everyone should believe the same way that they do.

That is not what I read into that simple statement. United as ONE NATION we can agree to disagree without resorting to name calling or making up falsehoods & distorting the truth.

Notice: he used the word country - not religion!!

The wagon he is talking about and referring to is "This country"!
