Do they enjoy being liberated from an Iraqi occupying force - i.e. Kuwait?
Do they enjoy being supplied with guns and training to run off Russian occuyping forces - i.e. Afghanistan?
Do Iraqis prefer electing their own leaders or sustaining a tyrant who tortured and oppressed them and put thousands in mass graves?
You're kooky.
Cherry picking. Sure, the Kuwaiti's probably liked it but obviously not everybody was thrilled with it. While a few Iraqi's might prefer the way things are now vs. under Saddam evidently a lot of people didn't appreciate us propping up dictators like Mubarek and the Shah. Except for the few who benefit directly the overwhelming majority does not like an occupier. If you pulled your head out of your ass for a minute and considered how you would feel about a Chinese occupying force in the US or in US waters or the EU installing and supporting a US President you'd get a clue.

You're not only kooky but among the easily fooled who doesn't even have a stake in election outcomes. You just root for the wrong side because yours didn't stand a chance.

Fulfilling the Constitutional responsibilities of the Office of the President would be sufficient.

All I want to know is what is he planning to cut in his balanced approach.
I've asked three liberals that question so far and none of them had an answer.
Which means they don't have a clue either like the rest of us.
I believe his package included $400 billion in Medicare cuts. Didn't they report that part on Fox? I mean, everybody else reported the two elements of the offer Geitner tendered: Let the Bush tax cuts expire for the wealthy and $400 billion in Medicare cuts.

It's still a big mystery to liberals.

Which means that taxing the rich at a higher rate is just an ideological ploy.
As noted by Warren Buffett, the Obama tax plan is a morale builder for the middle class with no practical effect.

Purely for show.

I'd just be happy if he hung around D.C. long enough to sit down with republicans and hash out a do-able negotiation.
It's what's kinda expected of a president.
Fox didn't report the closed door meetings with Congressional leadership?

You're a hostage of your own stupidity.
The Obama plan will do nothing but increase the rate of deficit spending.

But it's okay with you that the Taliban occupied Afghanistan and shot women in the head at public events for entertainment.
You're kooky.
That's their problem, I notice nobody has invaded us when we've turned our troops on our own people or have committed other human rights transgressions.

Some people fight for their country's best interest while others fight for their party and their personal power. The Boy Messiah is the latter. John Boehner is the former.
lol! You have it backwards son.

After all, that's why Obama invites others to his "house" and all cons do is complain!

Of course it couldn't be that the Republican Party was broadly rejected by the electorate last month. Unless you're arguing that a huge majority of Americans are "liberals" which destroys your frequent contention that America is a "center-right" nation. But, holding contradictory "truths" is your speciality so you and only you CAN have it both ways.
Retaining control of the House of Representatives is hardly a "broad rejection."

Brooks is a flaming liberal dontcha know, he's not even a frequent "contributor" to Fox "News".
Brooks is neither liberal nor Conservative, closest to a "moderate" as there is.

No...Immediately following one of the Presidential Debates between McCain and the Boy Messiah, both couples passed each other exiting the stage. The men shook hands but as the two wives passed, Cindy McCain reached her hand out to Moochelle. The Ice Queen From Hell didn't even make eye contact with Cindy. She ignored the extended hand and brusquely walked past.
There is nothing gracious walking inside the White House today. There are but two political animals hiding their fangs as best they can along with the help of the complacent and committed media. So stop with the fairy tale approach. Save it for the kids.
"Shinning" once again allows no lie to be unrepeated. "God no....are you kidding me??? Michelle was talking to voters, she didn't snub anyone. Rewatch the tape...McCain snubbed Obama, no one else on either side did any snubbing." Are you and carol related?
