Quit picking on Obama……


We had Ford who couldn't come down a set of stairs without slipping…

Bush who didn't know how to duck when entering a helicopter, but does when a shoe comes flying…..

Now Obama doesn’t know when to hug, shake hands, or bow…..what he reads on a teleprompter has a 12 seconds time delay before it registers…..

Give the guy a break…..

He’ll get it soon……..



I hope....

That is what I said a while ago, karrie. I said that he is more American than an American (sounds much better than ‘more American than Canadian’).

DaSleeper, if you are saying that to the right wing, you are whistling in the wind. Right and far right have a visceral hatred of Obama. They decided long time ago that he is a Muslim terrorist, a Fascist, a Communist, a Socialist, an illegal alien and so on. He has been compared to Stalin, to Hitler, to practically every dictator imaginable. To my knowledge, no far right columnist has compared him to Mao, but give them time.

So, according to far right everything that happens is Obama’s fault. They started blaming Obama for the economic downturn, even before he took office, right after he was elected (well, perhaps even before that, right wingers were saying that as a candidate, Obama talked the economy down to get elected).

Right and far right has blamed everything on Obama. They haven’t yet blamed the Katrina disaster, assassination attempt on Reagan and dot com meltdown on Obama but again, give them time.

So if your message was directed to right and far right, it is wasted, Obama gets no break as far as they are concerned (their attitude was loudly and proudly proclaimed by the drug addict, Rush Limbaugh, ‘I hope he fails’).

The rest of the population on the other hand, is quite reasonable. They are quite willing to give Obama a chance to show what he can do. He has approval rating around 60%, so most people are either satisfied with the way he is running things or at the very least are withholding judgment.

The right and far right on the other hand, will be satisfied with nothing less that arresting Obama and putting him in prison (or at the very least, deporting him to Kenya or to Indonesia).

Ron, I am talking about far right Americans. Why would far right Canadians be fixated on Obama? Philosophy of far right Canadians is very simple. They embrace everything American (their health care system, their support of death penalty, their opposition to gay marriage, their system of government with referendums etc); they take their cue from the American far right.

The one example I gave in my post, Limbaugh is a far right American, not a far right Canadian. Canadian far right is mercifully irrelevant. American far right unfortunately, is too powerful.

SirJosephPorter: You sound much more American than I do......Man you take this sh*t way too seriously.......this was meant to be a fun thread...non partisan...since I put in a few of Bush's Boo boo's in there too....Maybe If I had called him Bushco and put in a few more of his faux pas it would have satisfied your left wing point of view? yes?
If I didn't put enough.......then I apologize and will try to do better in the future to meet with your requirements......Cheers

Ron, if you want examples, I can think of Charles McVety, the leader of Canadian religious right. Randy White would be another (he wants to use Notwithstanding Clause every time courts overrule the Conservative government). Stockwell Day would be the third (he is a creationist; he believes that universe was created 5000 years ago in six days, by the Christian God).

What you describe is not the tone being set by the right. In fact your post would be more accurate if you changed 'right' to left and 'Obama' to 'Bush'. The US went through 8 years of the type of vitrol you attribute to the right, beginning with hangging chads and it never stopped for two terms. He couldn't get 60% approval, with probably 10% undecided, without people right of center.The climate now is nothing like that created by the rabid anti-Bush people. There is no comparison.

RanchHand, the reason there was so much rancor with Bush is that Democrats feel, rightly or wrongly, that Bush stole the 2000 election. Gore got more votes than Bush; the recount in Florida was under way.

Then the Republican majority on Supreme Court ordered the recount stopped, effectively giving the election to another Republican, Bush. The vote was 5 to 4, All Republican justices voting one way, all Democratic justices voting the other.

The whole thing stunck to high heaven as far as Democrats were concerned. In his speech after SC decision, Gore did tell Democrats to forgive and forget and to move on. Again, to his credit, he was not bitter, he moved on, and went on to win the Nobel Prize. He probably came out ahead by losing the election.

The Democrats on the other hand, never forgave Bush for stealing the election. And this included Democratic voters as well, not just Democratic politicians. Also, Bush was not interested in bipartisanship. He, along with Carl Rowe decided to become the President of 50%+1 people from day one. Indeed, that was the strategy of Carl Rowe, divide and conquer. His strategy was to keep 50%+1 Americans happy and hang the rest.

And it worked; Bush won in 2004 by a narrow margin. So neither Bush nor the Democrats were interested in reaching across the isle. Whatever rancor was there, I think Bush was largely responsible for that, with his antics.

With Obama, it is different. He won the election convincingly, struck a bipartisan note right from the beginning, he kept some Bush appointees on, included some Republicans in his cabinet. So it is only the rabid right wingers who have a visceral hatred for him, the rest of the American electorate is willing to wait and see how he performs.

Quote has been trimmed, See full post: View Post
In hind sight they would have been better off had they flipped a coin when millions of votes seperate two candidates by hundreds or a few thousand. I recall that the Miami Herald went through a re-count exercise of some sort and determined that Bush had won.

"The unspoken truth of the 2000 election dispute in Florida is always ignored by the left: Gore never led; not on election night, not after any statewide recount, not after adding the votes from county hand recounts, and not even in the exhaustive statewide post—election recounts conducted by the major state and national newspapers (in almost all of which Bush wound up ahead when any consistent method of counting was used.) Pick your method of counting chads, and it doesn't matter. Bush won. "

RanchHand, American Thinker is hardly an unbiased source. It is one of the most right wing websites around, comparable to WorldNetdaily or TownHall. I wouldn’t believe American Thinker if it tells me that sun rises in the east. It has to be confirmed by an independent source before I will believe that. So American Thinker has zero credibility with me.

I personally don’t know what the right solution was to the 2000 election. Gore did get more votes than Bush, but technically Bush had won. However, there were plenty of questions, plenty of irregularities about Florida election. So I don’t know what the solution was. However, what happened (Republicans in the Supreme Court, by a politically partisan 5 to 4 vote gave the election to a Republican) was the worst possible solution; it poisoned the political climate in USA for the next eight years.

It also gave the Supreme Court a bloody eye. So much so that Chief Justice, Rehnquist, found it necessary to deny that there was any politics involved. He denied it himself, and he sent his surrogate, Justice Clarence Thomas to deny it. Justice Thomas also denied it. It is unprecedented for Supreme Court Justices to comment on the decisions they hand down.

However, Rehnquist probably realized that what Supreme Court did looked bad, so he felt it necessary to do some damage control.

Whenever I have written anything about Bush, I usually get red rep points.

I'm curious to know: when any of you of the right wing criticize Obama, do you get any reds??

I don't give red points but, if I did, I would give them to you simply because nobody cares and you really need to shut the hell up. Bush is done. You really need to move on. Your pedantic whining about him is incredibly tiresome. I mean, good gawd you've just finally changed your signature where you mentioned Reagan. He hasn't been Prez for twenty frickin years. Perhaps if you stuck to current events and stopped pouting like some pissed off woman holding a grudge, people wouldn't be giving you red points.

DaSleeper, if you are saying that to the left wing, you are whistling in the wind. Left and far left have a visceral hatred of Bush. They decided long time ago that he is a terrorist, a Fascist, and so on. He has been compared to Mussolini, to Franco, to Hitler, to practically every dictator imaginable. To my knowledge, no far left columnist has compared him to Mao, but give them time.

They started blaming Bush for the economic downturn, even before he took office, right after he was elected (well, perhaps even before that, left wingers were saying that as a candidate, Bush talked the economy down to get elected).

Left and far left has blamed everything on Bush. They haven’t yet blamed the Cole disaster, assassination attempt on Reagan and dot com meltdown on Bush but again, give them time.

So if your message was directed to left and far left, it is wasted, Bush gets no break as far as they are concerned (their attitude was loudly and proudly proclaimed by the drug addicts, enter actors of your choice).

The left and far left on the other hand, will be satisfied with nothing less that arresting Bush and putting him in prison.

Risus said the following, because he is a self-declared "genius":

"Actually, bush didn't have a brain, couldn't talk, couldn't think, etc etc...

Obama is too full of himself."

Bush was elected to the Presidency of the United States - TWICE!

And the "genius" Risus, obviously, can't think, can't write, doesn't have enough brains to use capital letter with proper nouns.

But fair if fair: he is right about Obama.

Response #19.

Well, here we go again: Bush stole the 2000 election. He was given the Presidency by a Republican Supreme Court, allegedly. The truth is that it was an EVEN Supreme Court with Sandra O'Connor being the swing voter.

But even long before the election. Bush was constantly ridiculed by the predominanly left-wing press. The fact that Bush cleaned floor with Gore in two out three debates never made any difference.

Majority vote? So what? The law says that the Presidency goes to the candidate with the higher number of electoral votes. The brainless zombies who still bemoan this fact have absolutely no idea (obviously!) that in 1888 Grover Cleveland, who had 48.61% of the popular vote, yielding 168 EC votes, lost the Presidency to Benjamin Harrison who had 47.82% of the popular vote, but got 233 of the Electoral College votes.

But the real clincher that proves that these jealous zombies are nothing but poor and sore losers is the fact that if Gore had won either his own State (Tennesse) or the state of Bill Clinton (Arkansas), the votes in Florida would not even have been an issue at all. He lost both. I guess the people in these two states knew him best.

At the same time, how about leaving Bush alone?

He left the office to which he was elected twice and served to the best of his ability with honour, with quiet dignity in spite of all the incoherent screeching and "Nya nya, goodby" from low-lifes who probably never voted previously in their lives and never will again.

It is also a safe bet that he will not go around the world bashing and apologizing for his country like Carter and Clinton. Neither Bush nor Cheney bad-mouthed and blamed their predecessors like Obama and Biden are doing day after day.

Bush is out of office and in the quiet anonimity of his ranch. It takes an exceptionally small mind to carry on and bad-mouth, with typical liberal malice, a man who has more honour and dignity in his little finger than any number of self-declared geniuses have in all their bed bug bitten bodies and empty skulls.

Walter, I will say the same thing to you that I said to Yukon Jack a while ago in the canada.com forum.

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and I am flattered. But surely you can be more original than that?
