    Lotta people flapping thier gums about Obama the "Boy King" meaning he is an out of control despot.

    Here are the facts
    2009 Obama signing statements...7
    2001 Bush signing statements...24

    Wouldn't this be a fair gauge of Hubris?

    Who was the Boy King again?

    Your thoughts?

    it goes unnoticed if the signing statements are done by a president of ones own party, it seems...?

    i haven't seen a thing to make me think obama is a or thinks he is a ''boy king'' yet these repubs act as though the world is coming to an end but when bush was president i was certain he was the evil one, the antichrist or cheney certainly was! :eek:

    :rofl:

    i guess it's someone elses turn to be totally freaked out!

    I Know!! (spoken like Craig Ferguson:lol:)

    I wonder why in 15 months nobody has brought this fair factual comparison? Well I know why the fundis haven't ..but really ... it is such a no-brainer:lol: Thanks for your input.

    I assumed by boy king they meant inexperienced. A despot is a tyrant.

    I can't wait until the 2012 presidential debates and someone with a brain starts challenging candidates with facts, like when SS & Medicare go bankrupt. Then add in the total deficit times the rising interest rates.....we'll see who is a boy and who knows what they're doing.

    How much TARP money did ACORN get?

    Obama Pulls Back from Signing Statements | 44 | washingtonpost.com
