    I guess he bought in to that whole, "Hope and Change" thingy 4 years ago.

    “My question is, what legacy will he leave, having the opportunity to serve under such hugely dramatic circumstances and had such a huge impact on the universal state of things … how could he have had such a splendid opportunity to do more than most presidents would have ever been able to do, and he let that opportunity slip away from him.

    I’m very cautious of the fact that those who think he has some second agenda and only if he could be given a second term for us to see the new light, new things will be revealed, new efforts will be made to take us to a place other than where we’ve been and where we languish. I just don’t trust that. I don’t believe that’s a safe way and accurate way to look at this scenario. If there was the kind of moral compass serving Barack Obama the way we hoped, the moral force would have helped him make choices, the absence of that force in his equations, that barometer to guide him when he has to make these decisions that are hugely complicated, he should have come to the table with the things that would have helped us in this moment of crisis.”

  2. Yes, I as I said, the left is pissed that he went center. But the GOP cannot even beat a man who's base is pissed at him.

    LOL He didn't go center. He just had no solution but to bankrup the country. His ideas didn't work but it still bankrupted us. But that's what we should expect from a community organizer in the Presidency at a time of crisis.
  4. Dum dum dummy. This started actually with Nixon. He gave the bird to Bretton Woods and off the the races borrowing went. Obama comes in when we are already parabolic in this cycle.

    Do some homework for once, son.:D

    Go look at some data. The national debt will be $16 Trillion by the end of the year. It was around $10 Trillion when Obama took office. That is more than a doubling of the rate under Bush. Geez get your facts straight.
  6. Isn't it more like $9T when Odumbo took office... and will be nearly $17T by the end of this year? (But then, what's a couple of $Trillion these days?..)

    And Congress... should be ashamed of itself for participating in this..

    :mad: :mad:
  7. You folks always forget to mention that Obama came into office with a trillion dollar + deficit, 2 wars,worst economy since the great depression ,Bushes expanded gov, expanded medicare etc

    Most of Obamas addition to the national debt is from paying the bills Bush left

    Its not like Obama came into office with a balanced budget and turned it into a trillion dollar deficit and 5 trillion in debt,but another President did that :cool:
  8. It amazes me that these people do not know what a parabola is.

    Ak, if you want to stop these nutters, google A Crash Course. It is long. But you have the intelligence and perseverance, check it out.
  9. I'll check it out

    So another prominent person, among the millions of similarly minded persons, comes out expressing his disappointment that Obama is not stronger, or further left, and you think that's a good thing for you??
