This has been bugging me. I guess it's true what they say, "Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely."

I watched that last night, and laughed my ass off. And I mostly agree with it.

Just because I'm a liberal doesn't mean I will blindly support Obama.

Actually Stewart is right. Obama does need to do the right thing.

You mean, you've criticized Obama? Care to post a link to those posts?

I support on Obama on these actions. They were vital tools in the war on terror and the maintence of our national security, and they became no less vital when a new President came into power. I applaud the fact that President Obama was able to see that and canned the rhetoric in favor of real leadership in this regard.

I predicted long ago that The Obama would reveal two sides the Democratic party -- the liberals who support people becaise of their ideology and the partisans that support people because of the (D) next to their name. Most of His supporters here fall into the latter category.

Thise of you that voted for The Obama because He was going to reverse all those terrible things that Bush did - how's your byuers remorse?

The left? Possibly - and good for them.
The partisans? Not even close - just look at all the hacks here that give Him a pass every time He goes back on something He said.

The thread had been here for seven minutes. Jesus Christ what the hell is wrong with you?

Yes, I loved the bit. Stewart was right on the money. This isn't even the first post I've made on the subject. (stewart came up in another thread) They've been hammering the Obama administration a lot of the last couple weeks. It's just as funny as when they hammer the right. Here's something that will blow your mind:
Liberals, unlike conservatives, are capable of thinking in terms other than black and white, and we're also capable of going against "our" party's line.

The left has been complaining about Obama's national security stance for quite a while now. Stewart is not going over any new feelings in this regard.

Do you have any idea how many times I've called Obama "Bush III" on this very forum?

And yet, even though The Obama not just continues, but -expands- the hated practices of the hated GWB - the very hated practices that The Obama promised oveer and over to end - they still support HIm.
In fact, there are very few things that The Obama has improved on over GWB; in fact, most of the things that the left hated GWB for, The Obama has only done worse at.

The difference between GWB and The Obama is that GWB did a better job at the things that supposedly mattered to the left, and The Obama hasa (D) next to His name.

National security is only one aspect of the job of the presidency. There are things he has done that I approve of, such as the stimulus and health care reform.

Ah... the usual escuxe - "there's more to why I support Him other than those hated GWB policies that he said He would reverse and has either kept or expanded". Of -course- there is.
Tell mw what you think of The Obama's out of control spending and retention of GWB's tax cuts for millions and millions of people.

Cuz , you see, the biggest gripe the left had w/ GWB were his securty-related policies and his deficits.
