9. yeah!
and smiling and looking like he has love for his Wife. It made me sick. We should all be outraged by this display of love. Our President should never show any signs of affection toward anyone.

4. I read 10-12 pages of Latest this morning and found very very little discontent.
Maybe they're just not up yet. It should start any time now.

7. I just wanted to give them a head start as I head out the door
I figure, that either Obama hasn't done enough yet, or he should have done something dramatic by now. Either way, the discontent weeds should be springing up momentarily.

10. He Does Too Walk On Water.
Take yesterday; for example. He walked to the podium gracefully treading on the flood of non-stop tears from all the whining little petty ass irrationally zealous babies who can't stop cryin about anything and everything under the sun for a damn second; as well as the tears of all the freeper morons.

11. Oh, good goddess.
Sometimes it's like dealing with hormonal 15-year-olds around here from the drama we get from you guys. It's called accountability. It's the responsibility the Founders passed on to us. No one is perfect particularly politicians, of which President Obama is one. Bush supporters justified EVERYTHING he did due to hero worship and blind partisanship. I'd really hate to see the Democratic-Party-before-country crowd go down the same road but it appears they already are.

31. too bad the Founders..
didn't specify that responsibility is more than trashing and bashing, and creating divisions. I get why some people think that Obama has made bad choices in his cabinet picks, which as far as I know is the only thing he's done so far. Can't wait to see how much divisiveness will be accomplished when he actually starts to enact policy. Hopefully I will learn to not engage in the knee-jerk hyperbole that is a complete waste of time.

And that's just today. Happy now?

Are you beginning to see how ridiculous you guys are sounding? Not to mention inaccurate and unrealistic. It's interesting how "holding elected officials accountable" is translated into "bashing" and "trashing" only by blind partisans. There is absolutely knee-jerk hyperbole going on her and I think I just proved from which direction it is coming.

35. Why would I be 'happy now'?
what does that have to do with what 'Democracy' is all about? Trashing and bashing is absolutely pointless unless it involves action. I wonder how many people here actually volunteered and worked to get this man elected, or have spoken to their own representatives about their issues with the then President-elect. Are you beginning to see how ridiculous you people sound?

36. Sweetheart, I've been active
since 1968. I started by volunteering for the Bobby Kennedy campaign where I passed out fliers. I was 12. I've been involved ever since. If I were to be specific about everything I've been involved in in the last 41 years we would be here all day. You can take my word for it or not, it really doesn't matter. So, any more false assumptions you'd like to make or are you done embarrassing yourself?

32. Always "question authority"
That doesn't necessarily mean bashing but never just give a free pass. Find the logic in all decisions and then either present your own or be happy about it.

Funny how he didn't call on Citibank workers to make concessions. :shrug:

was he discussing the auto bail-out specifically, and in what context did it take place? Was it a statement, a press conference? And was the discussion of the UAW part of the bail-out in general, including the financial industry?

He made no such call for the workers of Citi to make concessions.

I will give him a chance to reconcile his previous statements.


After the surprises today, I am amazed at how quickly his is correcting the wrongs of the B* misAdministration.
