24. Surprisingly , me.

as vehemently critical as I have been of President Obama. I am now as inspired and motivated to see him re-elected as I was to see him elected in 2008.

The source of my motivation comes not from Obama (although I still have hope he will become the President he promised to be) , my inspiration and motivation comes from the republicon candidates for president.

Never have I seen a worse bunch of ignorant , arrogant, bigoted, hate filled, freedom hating, anti-American monsters. Every time they open mouth stupidity comes flowing out. Any of these asshats would completely destroy our nation.

From here until the 2012 election I will not be critical of the President here or when I talk with friends, families and co-workers. We have to re-elect Obama , take back the House and increase our majority n the Senate!!

Obama/Biden 2012!!!!

And I am absolutely LOVING the panic from certain posters here about "loyalty oaths" and other such idiocy. The fact that this post got more recs than the one whining about "loyalty oaths" is delicious.

Somehow, some here have determined "I support President Obama" is a loyalty oath and are trying their hardest to demean those who say the same apparently without the slightest bit of awareness that they are outnumbered.

How cool was that? At white house dot, scrolled over chairs of whom sat with Michelle & other interesting articles.

the negative brigade got to me a couple of times, I am sorry t o admit.......well, I do believe in thinking about things, and for a bit there I was losing sight of his accomplishments. Thanks to people here posting lists, it made it easy to see, since he works without much fanfare or photo-opping (and as we know, the Flying Monkeys Media, a wholly owned subsidiary of RepukeCorp, doesn't tell us).

63. That depends.

I will "have his back" on all efforts to:

*Hold War Criminals accountable

*Reduce Military Spending

*Stimulate the economy through SPENDING of Jobs Programs

*Hold tax Cheats accountable

*End subsidies to Oil and Big AG Corporations

*"Make EFCA the Law of the Land"

*"Renegotiate NAFTA"

*Prosecute Wall Street Criminals

*Increase taxes on the RICH

*Bring our troops HOME



On other issues, he will have to work without my help:

*Extend & Expand the Drone Wars

*Escalate the confrontation with Iran

*Redeploy troops to other countries

*Enter Civil Wars without Congressional Approval

*Increase and Enhance the extra-constitutional powers of the Unitary Executive

*Continue the WAR on Drugs

*Increase & Expand "Free Trade"

*Extend and increase the reductions to FICA Contributions ("Payroll Tax" = Republican Framing)

*get "Centrists", Blue Dogs, and Republicans elected to Democratic seats
(SEE: Arkansas Primary, 2010)

*Force Americans to BUY junk Health Insurance from For Profit Corporations

...on those issues, and a few others, no only will I NOT "stand" with president Obama,
but I WILL fight him.

So, you see,
it is impossible for me or any other Issues Oriented Activist to give you a blanket answer.




You will know them by their WORKS,
not by their excuses.
