    Though framed as all presidents it's clear on which president you are taking aim.

    I trust this president and that's why I voted for him twice.

    I will let the one's who disagree and HR me for speaking my mind, trust in traitors like Snowden.

    ...the GOP seems perfectly willing to hold their breath until the whole country turns Blue.

      Even though it was framed as "all presidents," by your own admission, it was really aimed at "Obama," because he's not a president or anything, and he CERTAINLY isn't our current president, right?

      Gawd forbid we hold our elected officials accountable. There's no need to do that, because he'd never steer us wrong. After all, your two votes for him, as well as MY two votes for him, are being carefully taken into consideration prior to his making policy decisions for the entire country.

      It's the personality that counts, not the actions of the person, as your consistency in labelling Snowden a traitor also quite clearly illustrates.

      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

      Why do you trust Obama? Why is it about trusting Obama in the first place. At least Neo Cons and Centrists have a paradigm that they adhere to, no matter how much i find them distasteful. But faith-based, personality political thinking is a real pestilence on the human race. It is responsible for much evil throughout history.

        Too many Repugs who are taking away voting rights for millions of Americans, passing laws that will guarantee men earn more than women, taking away a woman's right to choose, deny non white immigrants citizenship, and the other horrible things that they have yet to do.

        I pick my fights, and I choose to fight for Democrats, not spend 24/7 on kissing guys like Snowden's ass.

        I remember when this place used to be a site for Democrats. Now it's filled with liberal elitists who are as bad as the right wing elitists.

        and..I get HR's, not this far..for speaking up for a Democrat president. Many, many here are so out of touch with the real world.

        Let me make this very clear. I don't give a fuck who has my information. Hell Google gets it anyway. If it will save lives, I am for it.
