    This dichotomy is interesting. These same folks are the ones who wailed and railed against Booooosh, for allegedly listening to the shrill extremist voices in his political party, and are now wailing and railing against President Obama for not doing the same?

    What part of "not beholden to special interests" did they not understand when they cast their vote?

    Quite amusing, actually. Discuss.

    Regarding AFghanistan, Obama told people before his election that he would be augmenting troops there.

    So if the left is upset they ought not to be.

    Regarding Health care reform?

    Obama flat out mislead the people who were his most ardent supporters

    I don't see where he misled anyone on HCR. I DO see where he flip-flopped on it later, however.

    Do we really think the author of the op-ed in the OP is going to change his vote? Hell no, he will punch all Democrat just like he always has, despite his fiery furious rhetoric in print.

    They are railing against Obama for listening to the same people that Bush listened to

    I guess that point is what you missed entirely. Just right over your head.....:eusa_whistle:

    That's the claim. But the reality is, the wails and cries are because they perceive he is NOT listening to them.

    They won't change their vote anyway. Will you?

    Actually--I did not vote in the last election--but If I did, I would prefer Obama over McCain/Palin still.

    Yes, that is something they have a right to be angry about--they are the ones that got Obama elected, why in the hell did he turn his back on them on the issues that forced a elcetoral revolt against his predecessor?

    Obama is acting like an idiot--like G. W. Bush!!

    I made no judgment on if they have a right to be angry or not.

    But most should be snickering right now, they thought they were electing a special interest puppet who would do their bidding. At least they're straight-up honest about it now! :rofl:

    And when I asked about "change your vote" I meant, from Dem to Repug in future elections, not the last one. You won't do that and of course the author of the op-ed won't either. So it's just crybaby blather from him and his ilk.

    Here they are below, and I love it. And they're stuck with it probably until 2016! :rofl:

    Obama is like every other politician that I have ever known. Say and do anything to get elected and once elected, do as you damned well please. Forget about what you promised. The big difference in Obama and all of the other politicians is that he is openly and purposefully turning the country into a socialist nation. The other politicians have been turning the country into a socialist nation for years but they have all be very quietly doing it instead of making it so obvious.

    This reminds me of the parable of the snake and the hare. The snake needed the hare's help to cross the river, and the hare complied only on the snake's promise that he wouldn't bite.

    In the middle of the river, the snake bit. The shocked hare asked why. The snake said, "It's my nature."

    This time though, the snake didn't bite until the hare got him all the way across the river and into the White House!

    Agreed, until you added this
    One President cannot do what you are proposing. He needs Congress for that. And granted, he has a lapdog Congress at the moment. But the main point is, you seem to believe our Union is a fragile thing. It's not. We will survive Obama just like we have every other President. We have been through worse and we have been through better. But we have been through and we will continue to do so.
