I have been following politics since before I reached puberty. Obama is bigger in every way. He is a bigger spender, bigger liar, he wants bigger government, bigger nanny state, bigger environmental legislation, and bigger racism (whitey did me wrong..stuff).
As far as militarily, you might have a point that Bush was bigger on that front. The problem is Obama, for the most part, retained Bush's foreign policy and where he deviated he fell on his face, ie. Leaving no troops behind in Iraq.
The steroids comment was basically talking about economic and fiscal issues.
Geez almighty, I DID say, "if Lincoln had left Fort Sumter when South Carolina seceded from the Union." That means from the Confederate perspective the Union was occupying Fort Sumter. Fort Sumter, in the minds of Confederates, was South Carolina territory. If Lincoln had just surrendered or walked away the war might have at least been delayed enough for a negotiated settlement.
My history was correct, it was just a loose analogy.
..and yes Guantanamo is Cuban Territory. The Cubans would have every right to try and take it back. The problem is that the US won't give it up. Maybe they should.....
Well, I guess I will advocate just for "my people." That would be middle-aged white guys. I am glad you don't think that is not racist.
Guys, this shows when we all do careful analysis without the political baggage, we can come up with solutions.
We should try this again. Problem is that getting clean, un-editorialized data is difficult.
The problem here is this liberal notion that spending more on education equals performance. No matter how you look at it, that is not the case.
I think that their might be a genetic component here that is completely being ignored.
Through history, the human race was culled by wars and people doing stupid stuff. Stupid people were more likely to starve, or have accidents, or die working in industry, or elect stupid politicians,etc. and were removed from the gene pool. Now, these people live and pro-create. They are called liberals.
So, that segment of the population gets more and more stupid and as society goes down that road it has a logarithmic effect on general intelligence. All you have to do is see that someone as sorry as Obama was elected twice as proof that this is going on today. How could anyone smart vote for that imbecile? He is the head dumbass.
There is a movie called the "Idiocracy" which is pretty much accurate about what the outcome of this genetic problem will be.
So, there is nothing we can do about this problem and we might as well save the money we were going to spend on education and use it for Valium for the smart 50% of the population.
Another problem solved....
As far as protecting POTUS...if he is happy with the current security management then more power to him. It is he and his families lives after all.
That hole in the fence looks similar to the hole in Obama's head.
GausianInterger...You never fail to be more partisan than the last liberal commenting.
Obama is the worst in history. Carter was a lot better than him. As far as Bush goes, he meant well but also made some bone-head mistakes. I would say that Obama worst, Carter real bad, Bush pretty bad.
It is really hard to defend Bush with his big deficits, playing fast and loose with personal rights, and the war in Iraq. Obama is Bush on steroids.
limiric...it is amazing to me that two people with the same set of facts came come up with diametrically opposed opinions on the same subject. Your interpretation of what Holder did was bizarre.
GausianInterger...By the way, there were two and "debunked" is in the eye of the beholder.
And what do you lefties do? Global warming, environmental fascism, women's mistreatment, the evil Tea Party, blah, blah, blah.... You guys are no diffident except your more delusional about yourselves.
GausianInterger...His "people" as an AG are supposed to be everyone in this country. That shows racism in itself.
He wasn't upset enough to charge those Black Panthers was he? Also, the problem with your "Many witnesses to the "intimidation" came forward and said the charges were exaggerated" comment. The problem is that it was video taped and anyone watching it knows that it was intimidation. Are you so dumb as to think they were just standing at the door giving out Tootsie Rolls? That is just dishonest.
For someone who worries all the time about "context" you sure take everyone else's words out of context.
Your taking some pretty wide interpretations of Holder's comments because it suits your politics. If I was AG and said used "my people" I would be crucified by you and the rest of you hyenas along with the mainstream media. Always an excuse for a black isn't there?
Also, the voter intimidation you and Holder are talking about happened 50 years ago. It very seldom happens today.
The only excuse for Holder is that he hates whites and is a race-baiter who ignores the constitution. The proof is, if Holder didn't think that the Panther incident was ok, why didn't he charge them. One reason, because they were black and the people they were trying to intimidate were white.
Whatever my reading comprehension abilities are, they are 10 time better than yours. You need a "fairness" course.
