Gee, Thanks…

Al Gore needs to let others take up the climate mantle.  Good going, give Fox lovin’ Naysayers more fuel.

No thanks.  I don’t think people who are renting out property should be allowed to discriminate against applicants based on their sexuality just because the property owner believes in God.

And really Mr. President?  Giving yourself a solid B+?  That sounds like something the last administration would claim.  I like ya, but please stop giving the opposition ammunition.

  1. If this doesn’t sell Obama’s narcissism nothing will. The man doesn’t even know how the public really judges his performance. But, what can be expected when a mere community organizer is put into the office of the Presidency with problems calling for anything but non-socialist solutions? Yep, you get a president who is in over his head.

  2. As opposed to the last guy who couldn’t really see where he made any errors? I think he was wrong to give himself such a high grade-but he is no worse than previous administrations, and I see no evidence that he is in above his head. I’d still vote for him before I would vote for a single conservative at this point.

  3. The correct answer any president who’s been in office less than one year should give to the grading question is “Incomplete”. Especially a president like Obama who has inherited such a massive economic shitstorm.

  4. So if he “inherited” a shit storm, why is he adding to it?

    * President Bush expanded the federal budget by a historic $700 billion through 2008. President Obama would add another $1 trillion. (Psst. That makes it a new historic number which eclipses Bush’s. Yep. It would.)
    * President Bush began a string of expensive finan­cial bailouts. President Obama is accelerating that course.
    * President Bush created a Medicare drug entitle­ment that will cost an estimated $800 billion in its first decade. President Obama has proposed a $634 billion down payment on a new govern­ment health care fund.
    * President Bush increased federal education spending 58 percent faster than inflation. Presi­dent Obama would double it.
    * President Bush became the first President to spend 3 percent of GDP on federal antipoverty programs. President Obama has already in­creased this spending by 20 percent.
    * President Bush tilted the income tax burden more toward upper-income taxpayers. President Obama would continue that trend.
    * President Bush presided over a $2.5 trillion increase in the public debt through 2008. Setting aside 2009 (for which Presidents Bush and Obama share responsibility for an additional $2.6 trillion in public debt), President Obama’s budget would add $4.9 trillion in public debt from the beginning of 2010 through 2016.

  5. And of course, the common mistake of Conservatives is to assume a defense of the president means you are unaware of what he proposes…the problem is, his opponents are not countering with substance.

    Plus, hey, health care? It needs a fix, and Republicans never even try. Do I think he might have been better off to wait a year or so before igniting that debate? Yeah. Get stuff like Afghanistan, Guantanamo and the economy in place first.

    Adding to the debt was unavoidable. McCain would be burning through the cash right now, and every Republican in office would be dying to help him. It’s hard for me to get all that worked up.

  6. RE:McCain would be burning through the cash right now, and every Republican in office would be dying to help him
    But you would also be demonizing him for it, not doubt.

  7. Actually, I liked McCain. But his decisions at the end of his campaign last year and the choice of Sarah Palin killed any chance I had of being willing to vote for him. I was on the fence until shortly after she joined the campaign. So, no, I would not be demonizing McCain for making tough choices.

  8. I love that Ben doesn’t argue that McCain would be doing much the same as Obama, he just argues that “Liberals” would bash him for it.

    In other words, the POLICY doesn’t matter, just the letter [ (D) or (R) ] which is by their name.

    So long as the party you prefer does things, all those things are good.
    If it’s the other party, it MUST be evil, even if it’s the EXACT SAME ACTION.

  9. Tony, your intellect fails you as you assume too much.

  10. And, again, no actual rebuttal.
