9. Wait, correct my history here...

 

but didn't Obama have majorities in both the senate and the house of reps to start the term off? Somehow he failed to live up to the American public's wishes reflected in those majorities, and became a totally different President after the campaigning was over. He was supposed to be different than war-criminal, "Patriot Act"-loving Bush. But no, he hasn't been. He's just a nicer smile and a better speaker. The NDAA, for example, how can you possibly sign such a heinous bill, Mr Obama, when you are a constitutional scholar? No citizen should ever be threatened with disappearing into a black hole without access to a lawyer, at the whim of the government and military...but that's just what the bill does, and Obama signed it, with great support from congress (93-7). Sorry, I'll stop with facts. Let's all put on our blue and get out the vote!

We aint in Kansas anymore.

Wake up.
