It's like the joke about the slaves on the Galley ship...

..."Good news, double rations of bread and water for everyone! Now, the Captain wants to water ski!"

Ha..Ha..

Bet he spends more time on the swing set than his girls.

Funny.

Really...that was funny!

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

My biggest beef

First two years he had majority in BOTH house and senate (which even Bush didn't have) and he did NOTHING.

That was his chance to shine but he showed true colors.

Is this

Hope

Is this change?

Cyril's picture

Oh yes, this IS change.

I can assure you it is.

They did NOT lie on that one. Now I KNOW.

One can recognize the PATTERN very EASILY.

In truth:
this is change being executed in a VERY SPECIFIC agenda.

Is this hope for Liberty and Prosperity?

Alas, for CERTAINTY NOT. The exact opposite, instead:

and God Save America out of this thing.

Check out the link I shared again, in other comment below. And judge for yourself.

Who are Obamaniacs?

If you want to see what an Obamaniac looks like, just go to the worst slum you can find. They love their Obama because he puts food on their table and they reward him by donating part of their welfare check to his campaign as a tithe and sending him a vote on election day. Another place to find a typical braindead Obamaniac is the college campus. 90% of college kids have been well-trained in socialist propaganda since they were old enough to ride a school bus, but most of them don't pay that much attention to civics, history, politics, etc. After all, with the dumbed-down educational standards that have been created as a result of government money in education, you don't have to be a genius to graduate from college nowadays. They support Obama because "he's cute", "their friends support him", "he believes in 'equality'", and "he's a good speaker".

No.

Don't lump people together like that. Paul wins the majority of college students in each state.

You'll never take me pot o' gold... or my freedoms! Ron Paul 2012!

Dr. Paul wins the majority of college students

among Republican college students. In a head-to-head match-up between Paul and Obama, Dr. Paul would do better with college students than any of the other Republicans, but Obama would still beat Dr. Paul with the young demographic.

that is just not true either

it is more likely a middle ground between the two, there are a lot of college students that don't like Obama for the right reasons but still don't like Doctor Paul and his message.

This is hard to read...

1. Made government bigger
2. Appointed more cronies to Washington
3. Announce commission to study how best to expand government
4. Promised to blah blah blah
5. Intends to blah blah blah

I think the issue is that the person who made this list things that the mere act of "doing" things is what makes a good president. He can write "increased veteran's benefits" and conveniently ignore the other time when he decreased them. And that takes some cojones to put the stimulus on there as an achievement. The author probably liked the stimulus because at least the president "did" something.

Almost every single one of these points is a crutch. The government shoots you in the leg, hands you a crutch, and then this guy makes a blog saying how they helped. How about we make a list about Obama, but instead of listing achievements or failures, we just show a couple hundred pictures representing a portion of some of the innocent civilian women and children he drone-bombed? Maybe a picture of the American citizens he assassinated? Maybe a picture of him posing next to his Nobel Peace Prize while he orders 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan? Maybe a picture of him signing the check for $20 billion to Goldman Sachs during the bailout, with a card that says "thanks for the campaign donations, guys! I told you I'd pay you pack!"

+1. Exactly

I would say that point #30 copied in the OP's post is EXTREMELY "interesting" in the light of these findings, though:

Read: interesting = worrying :-(

well I wasn't going to post this but u forced me too, crickett!

(LOL! Tongue in cheek of course!)

When I think about it that list of 'good deeds' by BHO is long even for a meglamaniac! I can think of a few SELECT radio hosts who could make some use of it, too, when the time is right. Bookmarked.

How many of these?

Are "working on", "going to", "in the works", "soon to be". After 4 years the number of such projects should be like... 5/90, not 30+/90. People are so blind to political pandering and rhetoric it drives me crazy. A politician saying "I'm going to do ____ eventually" means absolutely nothing and should not be listed in a list of "accomplishments".

Sheeple are pissing me off, more and more.

Vengeance

edit

Vengeance: same as Bush, Clinton, with a twist.

I just don't have the patience

to deal with these leftists.
It's bad enough with the neocons.
After 15 seconds with an Obamaniac, I just write them off as mentally incapacitated.

All I hope is that there are some of us who can stand to talk sense into these people.

Cyril's picture

Me too, man

Me too.

I've spent 39 years of my life coping with the French version of those.

That leaves you pretty exhausted for that flavor of the argument. I confirm.

I can still help fight against the crooks who oppose Ron Paul in the GOP, though.

Here's my take on Obamaniacs at this point

And after everything we have seen ongoing since 2009.

Obamaniacs are either:

1. Deaf and Blind and/or Drugged

2. Braindead selfish ignorant

3. The servile end recipients or beneficiaries of:

Subsides, bribes, contracts, ... you name it.

Funds coming from the taxpayers money and an exponentially increasing national debt created by the counterfeit masters at the Federal Reserve.

That's my assessment on those alienated people and their masters.

I sure am VERY FAMILIAR how lame or despicable they can be.

Indeed. I totally KNOW what that kind is all about.

And we will have, with Ron Paul, to save us all the People, including them, and some certainly won't even bother to say thank you.

Just the usual of man history.

God help us restore this country.
