Obama is a hard left guy who has done plenty for anyone to see what he really is if they will just look.

The left will not admit that because the left cannot be honest about their intent as it would prevent people very voting for them.
The people on the 'hard left' definitely do not agree that Obama is 'hard left'. He's a politician. He's in bed with the same people most of the Republicans are. Is big business suffering right now? Nope.

Don't be fooled on that one.

Same goes for Democrats. Leftists have voiced dissaproval of Obama, but many Democrats, especially moderate and conservative Democrats seem to give Obama a pass, while they condemn policies by Bush and Romney.
Because they aren't.

Really? Mitt is a better businessman than Obama but the presidency is more than just the business part which is were mitt is severly lacking. Btw where does mitt's training and experience come from? Do you think that he learned alot while he was governor of MA? I don't think so, hell he could not carry his own state

Obama takes the worst of the Right and the worst of the Left and combines it into one package.

Republicans & Democrats are simply 2 parts of the one party system in this country. They have the same goals. Just different ideas on how to attain them. Only the naive voter thinks there's any real difference between them. Believe me, the president only makes decisions that he's allowed to make.

I just don't see how anyone can peg Obama as hard left. If he is, then so is every president in the last 50 years.

Ain't that the truth. You know, I have been a very close observer of all things American for about 45 years. I have always thought the country was half crazed and very weird but little did I know EH?

These past 4 years have brought all the nutcases out of their caves. THESE FOLKS ARE DOWNRIGHT DANGEROUS THEY ARE SO FAR OUT IN THEIR OWN LITTLE ZONE OF INSANITY. Every single day here on CD I read some idiot spouting such nonsence they really should be locked up for their own good and for the good of society at large. Their threats and veiled comment advocating violence are just beyond the pale. I'm quite sure the Dept of homeland security reads all of their almost criminal utterances and are watching them very closely. If they actually believed 1% of the garbage they spout they would watch themselves a little better. Maybe they just are as stupid as they seem and some day when the hammer comes down they will be like, "What did I do, where are you taking me? You can't do this to me? It's my constitutional right to threaten the president of the USA, MOMMA HELP"!!!!!!!

What a bunch of friging loons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
