    It just sends a quiver up my leg every time I see that Obama is so much better than Bush.

    Get that folks? National security trumps human rights under Obama.

    But we don't have to worry, because Obama is not doing anything like Bush did.

    That makes me feel better, they promise they won't torture them.

    Hey, you have the presidents word on it, so chill. They keep it in there for when we have republican facists dictating to America, and that isn't likely to happen again, will it?:eusa_whistle:

    actually, it was more a case of Bush and the GOP in congress, spending like democrats
    and thats why they got kicked out on their asses
    and likely why the dems are gonna get the same treatment this fall

    I really don't see it happening, but I would be fine with the change, as neither party is worth a crap, and it seems the voters & couch huggers just don't give rats ass.

    Maybe what we should do, is vote all dems out this election, and then next election vote all the republicans out, and keep changing back and forth, or just automate the damn system, as none of them make any change.
