    While watching the news conference this evening, I've noticed Obama making the comment, "I'm not the only one," then listing other individuals who share his view. What's with this? I've also noticed, several times, that Obama has blamed the Bush administration for his inheritence of a deficit, while ignoring the questions about his new spending bill that would double the deficit. Obama has also shown his true colors ,IMO, of partisanship. He referred to both parties as "us" and "them." Then he blamed any criticism on Republican Critics.

    It going to show that Obama is no different than any other politician. So much for "hope" we can believe in.

    So telling the truth about the mess he inherited bothers those on the right?

    That's not passing the buck, it's called the truth.

    He was given a bag of shit by Bush and now he has to clean it up. It doesn't mean he can't remind those on the right with a short memory span, that their man created it.

    He established that from the very beginning. Say one thing to get elected, then do just the opposite.

    No lobbyists in the White House, accepting public financing during the campaign (then not), the whole transparency thing.

    Not a surprise. Just another typical politician.

    One more thing Pogo. If anyone has tried to destroy our ecomony it is the right. they have pushed US to this point so we can't afford any social programs. They would rather see our economy in ruins than see social security, medicare, medicaid or universal health care. It wasn't socialism or marxism, it was the neo conservatives who gave US this mess. Your boys, Pogo.:evil:

    Your marxist shit is beginning to sound like a whiney little baby who has no real argument.

    Yeah... Middle East Peace will take a LONG TIME... particularly given that President Hussein just funded international terrorism with a donation of 1 BILLION DOLLARS!

    Funny, i didn't hear Bush complain about Clinton not taking out Bin Laden when he had the chance. Personally, I inherited a mess from the previous manager at my job. Never said a damn word about it, just went about my business. If only the guy in the highest office this country has to offer had the same standards for himself as an operations manager of a small-mid size company..... :rolleyes:

    ROFLMNAO... SWEET MOTHER!

    Now that is just embarassing to read.

    now friends, the Pogue here is an imbecile to be sure... and yeah, it's temtping to believe that she's a farce; a plant TRYING to give the impression that the ideological left is comprised of the lowest common intellectual denominator...

    But in truth, she's no less intelligent than President Hussein, or Speaker Pelosi or the leading Congressional Fudge-packer, Rep Bawney Fwank...

    The idiocy above is just what ya get from idiots... nothing new, unusual or otherwise unique in any of it.

    We can't afford them? Yet we're spending TRILLIONS of dollars on them.

    And, personally, I would rather see that money saved and put towards more prudent projects. Instead of giving the deadbeats more food stamps, how about we create programs that force these people to get jobs? Notice I said force, not offer. I believe ANYONE who wants handouts should be forced to do SOMETHING constructive to earn it. I don't care if they have to pick up the road kill on the local highway, at least they aren't sitting in their trailers watching their big screens and eating name brand foods that the American taxpayers paid for.
