I disagree with many of Obama's domestic and foreign policies, but calling it terrorist coddling is ridiculous. If anything we should be doing less in the Middle East. In reality, Obama is just as much a war hawk as any other politician in Washington.

Clearly...the biggest problem are white racist felons. I mean to be white and have to go to prison...you gotta be a pretty lousy person of very low ethics and morals. White ex-felons should lose all of their Constitutional rights. They have already proven, that even with white privilege, they can't function in society. And racist to boot...what a fucking loser!

He refuses to admit who they are & what they stand for. He happily releases dangerous ones from gitmo.

Why is it okay to use the term rightwing terrorism but not islamic?

Calling any spending of a government $18 trillion in debt "budget spending" is a bit oxymoronic.
the debt is a total of deficits left by Presidents. To blame it all on Obama is moronic
Wasn't. Have said numerous times the debt isn't all on the most recent President. Even if it were, not like it matters. Can't pay off just a $1trillion debt. Whether 1, 18, and 100 doesn't matter. Gonna default on it eventually. That's unavoidable.

The War on Terrorism is based on the presumption that Washington has the competence to turn the middle east into a western style free market democracy. This ignores the law of unintended consequences (which Republicans are notoriously bad at understanding, especially when it comes to giving Washington more power and money to do BIG things). As a result of our terminal War on Terrorism we have radically destabilized the region and created a power vacuum in Iraq that inspires radical groups like Isis to fill the gap. Dick Chaney said after the first Gulf War that Bush 41 chose not to remove Hussein because the U.S. didn't have the means to contain the resulting instability and civil war, which would unite factions across the region.

You can launch as many surges as you want, but you will never be able to prevent a small group of radicals from arising out of over 2 billion Muslims. As long as you declare War on Terrorism, you are going to be playing whack a mole forever, and bankrupting generations of Americans in the process. Giving Washington more money and more power to save the world is not going to make us safer. It is only going to give Big Government an excuse to build a surveillance monster, which will ultimately be used to protect .... [wait for it] . . . Big Government from domestic political enemies. This is exactly what the Soviet Union did. It's ironic that the Republican party has done the same thing.

Republicans tell us that Washington doesn't have the competence to run a laundromat, yet they have given Washington the power and budget to remake the Arab World, which is the most infinitely complex thing that Americans have ever asked of Washington. Are you fucking kidding me? You fucking people have turned 15 guys with box-cutters into a cosmic struggle. You've inflated their power by constantly talking about how powerful they are. This is what they wanted. You've elevated these sand monkeys into a force beyond Hitler. By giving them constant press and injecting them into every newscast and election cycle, you have done their bidding. Your incessant news clippings have been the best recruiting tool. They have more power in their local regions to pull in more people to their cause because they are made, by Republicans, to seem larger than life - as if they are as powerful as the U.S.A. [Stop giving them so much power, you morons]

Their goal was/is to scare people and make them live in fear. And so what do you do? You create a Color Coded warning system that blinks red every time someone finds a rogue bottle of toothpaste in someone luggage. You constantly badger Americans with inflated stories and images of mushroom clouds. This is what they wanted. They wanted to be the centerpiece of every American newscast. They wanted to be a debate topic in every presidential election. They wanted global power . . . and that is what the Republicans have given them. Are we safer? Nope. But we have given a bunch of bureaucrats the kind of surveillance power that is making an earlier generation of Republicans turn over in their grave.

I like the OP - but he consumes way too much Rightwing media. He is a useful....
