How can you like Obama, but dislike George Bush? I mean the two couldn't be any more similar. Or is it because Obama is on your (D) team and Bush (R) isn't.

Mainly because the "scandals" you're so worried about are created entirely out of whole cloth by you folks. You incorrectly assume that we can't detect the BS in your blather.

Do I blame Obama for some of the things he's done to prolong stuff started by George Bush, like data mining? Absolutely. Do I fall for the "OMG, he's a socialist fascist dictator of unparalleled dimensions" crap you people vomit out every day? Nope, not for a second.

Where did the op ever say something like that?

Please point it out.

Just because we critisize the President does not mean we are birthers or think he is a "socialist facist dictator".

You only demonstrate ignorance in your post by making assumptions as stupid as those you critisize. So that makes your post HYPOCRITICAL!

I think the whole "socialist facist dictator" claims are contrived and amplified via Corporate Media like Faux News in order to distort real objection and concern for what Obama is doing.

It also doesn't hurt to inflame and divide people-divide and distract is the mantra.

True. There is a serious opposition to the Obama adminstration. Unfortunately the entities you mention blur the argument. They cut off their nose to spite their face.

Calling someone a "socialist fascist dictator" doesn't even make sense. Socialism is about wealth distribution fascism is about super nationalism or racism and a dictatorship involves one man having all power.

The poster was just taking license with the way tea partiers rant against the President. It was not meant to be literal.

Why would my head pop on one of your contentions?

You made the Bush-Obama comparison. Why isn't your head poping having two [according to you] similar Presidents in a row?

My head...I'm watching your head POP!!!!
