    knowing the Obama haters live in a world without functioning question marks. Yes even the question marks have abandoned you.

    There are two types of republicans, the rich and the stupid. The rich ones strive to keep the stupid ones stupid and the stupid ones strive to keep the rich ones rich.

    •  I don't hate Obama... (6+ / 0-)

      ...so give that shit a rest.  I just don't love him.  There are some issues I really fundamentally disagree with him.  And I disagreed with them when Bush did them and when Clinton did them.  I mean should any self-respecting Democrat like the Patriot Act or domestic spying or 'sneak and peek' warrantless searches.  Or national security letters to look into what books you read at the library.  These are issues that Obama either embraces or continues yet nobody says anything here because the president has a D after his name.

      Oh and by the way.  When you criticize someone's spelling, or grammar you are just screaming

      'I can't make a cogent rebuttal on the issues so let's just insult the poster’

      Weak sauce.

      We Glory in war, in the shedding of human blood. What fools we are.

        "Obama lovers" as a perjorative risk painting themselves into a corner. Remember people who used to say "the negro lovers" (question mark omitted out of respect)

        •  I just have to say this: (6+ / 0-)

          The internet is a written medium.  Questions that do not end in question marks are NOT proper questions.

          They are statements.

          And statements that sound like questions are BAD WRITING.

          And WEAK SAUCE is terrible on spaghetti, especially if you have a cold.  And I do.  Is that a question?

          Yes.

          And no.

          The POINT being, a drone war is a nightmarish scenario straight out of science fiction, and yet if you asked ME, as POTUS, "which is worse, a nightmarish scenario straight out of science fiction, or sacrificing American lives?" (note the FUCKING QUESTION MARK,) I would have to take a very LONG TIME to think about my answer.

          As for what Reagan would "think" about any other thing, Reagan was not much of a THINKER.  He was a puppet of the same people who implemented all those things.  Reagan's brain trust RAN the Bush Administration, and President Obama would NOT be allowed to simply flush every last one of those Strangelovian bastards, and that's just how it is.

          I love that there is leftist purity, and I actually encourage it, but it's not so good to be idealistically correct while pragmatically, you are getting your ass kicked.

          Reagan was the Right's FIGUREHEAD.

          And the point of this thread is, Obama is ours.

          He did the one thing a good number of other Democrats couldn't do:

          HE WON.

          We are the change we have been waiting for.

      He's a guy we hired for a job, not a figure to "love" or "hate".

      I voted to keep him on the job but not blindly.
