    Who said he was a commie or a muslim here? Only you.
    Also, we all know that the goldman sachs thing is not true right? Because Obama himself decried the wall street fat cats over a year ago right? *Rolls eyes.

    Surely you must be kidding me!!!! LOL
    Remember what I always say folks, the left will accuse there enemies of that of which they are guilty of doing themselves. Obama said he does not support wall street, he even has said in the past that the GOP was snuggled up with wall street and big business, but yet, he is in fact in bed with wall street and big business himself. Let me get this right, Cornell West must be a racist!!!!!! HAHAHAHA!!!!

    Read the boards here.

    They are lousy with threads about President Obama being a Commie/Muslim/Kenyan/Terrorist.

    And he's basically like every other American President. Except he tilts (every so slightly) left.

    I wouldn't say ever so slightly, he is more left then Wilson and FDR put together. No other president in history has run so rough shod over his own people when it comes to legislation. 70% of Americans did not want the Socialist health law to be passed, but yet he still signed it into law. That's not slightly, that is full tilt.

    Obama is a wholly owned subsidiary of Goldman Sachs. He's a good investment for them, he handed them billions.

    Is it really any surprise? I mean they've been in bed for years. Why else do you think Goldman Sachs got to be their punching bag while they passed the new financial reform legislation that gave Goldman Sachs lots and lots of money? Because they are in bed together.
