Default al-Qaeda's No. 2 leader calls Obama "A house Negro"

To combat Obama, al-Qaida hurls insults - Washington Post- msnbc.com
from page two of the above
"The leadership of al-Qaeda is very concerned about the wide support that Obama has been receiving from Arab and Muslim countries," Katz said. "To combat this threat, al-Qaeda has embarked on a propaganda campaign against Obama, not only by linking him to the policies of the Bush administration, including the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, but also by accusing him of actions in which he had no part."
"Inevitably Obama will make certain decisions that will be unpopular and which the propagandists will quickly castigate," Pillar said. "I expect that the honeymoon will be just as fragile and short as with the American electorate."

Let's take a wait and see approach on this one. It's obvious that their insults towards Obama were to try to make him do something rash. Personal insults don't mean as much here as they do in some countries and cultures. I'll admit that if having Obama as president means a reduction in Al Qaeda members then that's a good thing. I'll withhold my opinion on his economy plan for later.

It appears you jumped to a conclusion too quickly. Look at my second message which appears directly above yours. Unlike most liberals who have a blind hatred of Bush, I can admit when a candidate I don't like or or voted for is doing something right.

Since you make the inane, baseless, parrot-like remark "most liberals who have a blind hatred of Bush", WHY should anyone place any credence in anything else you say?

I base my statement on the many anti-Bush people I've seen on several message boards who cannot acknowledge anything GW Bush has done that was good. What few that do name one thing always seem to feel the need to include in their post several negatives to follow that one good example just to show their hatred for Bush. Not all liberals have a blind hatred of Bush but judging by what I've seen on the evening news, message boards, protest marches, and political conventions I feel safe in saying most liberals do have a blind hatred of Bush.

YOU allege blind hatred

When someone dislikes Bush and gives a reason it's neither blind nor hatred.

WHY is it the NeoConfused are so quick to make these false accusations of hatred when they cannot defend their views?

This is decidely a one-sided phenomena, we rarely if ever see accusations of Clinton-hatred from the left when the NeoConfuseds go off on their self-righteous moral witch hunts.

I can freely admit some things I thought Clinton did right. One thing I believe he was right to do was line item veto. I also thought it was right to stop the genocide in Bosnia/Kosovo. I believed he made a good ambassador when entertaining foreign leaders. I like some of the things Obama has said he'd like to get done but disagree with him on other items. I've seen completely unrelated topics in which people managed to bring back up their hatred for Bush. Some kooks have actually tried to blame the formation of hurricane Katrina on Bush! Now can you address my first two post and get this discussion a rest?

A rest? It was you that made the accusation of Liberals' blind hatred. Even above you're still with the unfounded "hatred for Bush" statement. You still fail to give a rational explanation of just how disagreement with someone's decisions for specific reason(s) translates to hatred? It's YOU that need sto put this baseless allegation to rest.

I've gone over some of your post regarding the Bush administration. Seems you can't comment on the Bush administration without throwing some form of insult their way be it "eyerolls" or NeoConfused or making some remark about Dick Cheney's name. Can you point to something President Bush did that you felt was right and do so without being insulting to him or his administration? By the same token, I can point to things I disagree with Bush on. I completely disagreed with him on his immigration policy and his infrequent use of his Veto power to help curb congressional spending.
