    Those of you on this board are all busy name calling, making up shit about real protests, calling people dissatisfied with Obama and the Liberals in Congress as astro turf and delusional. You berate the right for being bitter over the past treatment of Bush and the current treatment of everyone not a liberal.

    Go ahead actually show us some leadership. Stop being petty and vindictive, stop making shit up. Stop name calling and lying about who and why people are protesting. Stop playing the race card every chance you get.

    Actually show us the supposed leadership you want to inspire.

    Get your Congressman, Senators and the President to actually show some leadership instead of petty bully tactics and Chicago style politics.

    I realize this will not happen, but for once in your adult life act like a leader and not a partisan hack. YOU control the Country, you have 265 votes in the House, 59 votes in the Senate and the President is a Democrat. Quit claiming Republicans are blocking anything and admit you have the power. If you can not pass things it is not because of Republicans, it is because DEMOCRATS do not agree with your policies and plans, with your legislation and your bills.

    Quit claiming that 55 Republican Senators ran the whole show under Bush but 60 and now 59 Democrats ( with independents) can not do the same. GROW the hell up and act like leaders.

    I hate to repeat this for the 50th time, but the majority of Democrats do not consider themselves Liberal.

    So while you may paint with your very very broad brush there RGS, you're wrong. Also, the fact you think there are so many Liberals in congress is laughable AT BEST. Seriously, if there were as many Liberals in congress as you think, things would be a lot different.

    The President is the most Liberal Senator ever to serve and Pelosi and Reed are in lock step with him. BUT that is the whole point, they can not pass what they want because it is objectionable to a LOT of Democrats as well. Until they wise up and realize that they will continue to fail or be forced to do as they are doing now with health care and simply LIE about what it is the bill says. Obama either LIED to that joint session of Congress or is to stupid to have actually read the bill. You pick which.

    As for this board it is full of Liberal people calling names, treating non liberals as trash and telling us to suck it up, being two faced about what they did for 9 years now while demanding we simply lay down and take their crap.

    Show some leadership.

    :eusa_eh: Elvis, we've been over this before. You remember the poll numbers I showed you no? How the majority of Democrats actually considered themselves either Socially Conservative and or Fiscally Conservative.

    In fact, if the Democrats were more Liberal than people believe, then Prop 8 would of been voted down in what is considered to be the most Liberal state in the country besides MA. Am I right or wrong? :eusa_eh:

    He's the most Liberal he is? Show me some of the very Liberal things he's done while in office. Because I can name at least 5 to 10 things that aren't so Liberal. Major things too.

    No because a hell of a lot of Liberals are AGAINST Homosexual so called marriage. It exists simply because Judges have ruled it to be acceptable not the voting public.
