    1. Lie to the people to gain power & put your thug friends in power around you.
    2. Make a power grab, gain control of industry.
    3. Take over the media.
    4. Remove weaponry from the people.
    5. Use the military to maintain your power.

    Obama's on #3.

    He'll never get #4 & #5, but he'll try.

    Funny, could of swore the bailout occurred under Bush and the car companies begged Obama for a bailout. That's a power grab to some people now that Obama is doing? :eusa_eh:

    I'd love to see a liberal make a post defending their leader without using the name "Bush" in it...

    I mean, yeah you guys think he's doing a bang up job, but how about focusing on The Barry?

    I know it's asking a lot, but maybe someday...

    I am focusing on Obama, don't be a hack House.

    I'm saying if Allie is blaming Obama for the bailout then she's throwing blame in the wrong direction. And I don't see where my post is inaccurate. Do you?

    I'm not saying whether his actions were right or wrong. I'm saying it wasn't a power grab and it wasn't.

    I'm not pointing the finger at Bush either.

    Fiddlesticks. It is a power grab. Because the first thing Obama did was put his buddies in charge of the companies that were bailed.

    Link? And you do realize that we do not own these companies forever, right?

    "What you see with President Obama is this reliance on czars," GOP strategist Kevin Madden said. "And I think there are probably even some corridors of power within the administration that probably didn't like the idea that you have czars that are encroaching on their policy portfolios."

    David Gergen, a CNN contributor and former aide to past presidents, said the czar controversy has given Republicans an opening to question the administration's decisions.

    "Now with President Obama, we have a number of people who answer to the president but not to Congress," he said. "When the Congress looks at it and sees over 30 people with czar titles, it naturally begins to worry that a lot of authority has been taken away and stripped of the Cabinet."

    The main issue, Gergen said, is that there are "about 25 too many" czars in the current White House.

    Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tennessee, said that number is an "affront to the Constitution."

    "We have about two dozen so-called czars -- the 'pay czar,' the 'car czar,' all these czars in the White House," said Alexander, who is the Senate Republican Conference chairman."

    I see nothing in there about the automobile industry Allie.

    Czars have no power to enact any laws if I do remember reading correctly. All they are is a fancy title for advisor.
