You've got it all wrong; the Saudis are the Bush's friends, remember how he allowed them to all round up and leave the country after 9-11? The Bush's were in business with the Bin Ladens, never bothered you eh?

It's the division of America that should worry folks more than what happened yesterday. We have people on this thread pointing fingers at political parties as the culprit already,! The professionals still haven't a clue as to who is responsible. Crazy!
The "professionals" at the federal level are now political operatives and will only arrest politically incorrect suspects.

<quoted text> He led us out of Bush's recession, out of Iraq, through the deaths of the top 10 Al Qaeda leaders, into Pakistan to get Bin Laden, stock markets breaking records, equal rights for woman in the work place as far as pay, universal healthcare, & plenty more. All with republican obstruction from day 1 of his presidency. Let me guess, you voted for Romney huh! Give NE list of Bush's accomplishments. There are none!
The recession was shared bipartisan neglect heeding Bush's warnings of the impending housing market collapse in the years leading up to it. The Democrats neglected to heed those warnings more than Republicans.

So, technically, it was the Democrats' recession.

The War in Iraq was over before Obama ran for presidency. The timeline to withdraw was already agreed upon before he even took office. Removing the remaining stabilizing troops in Iraq too soon according to an Iraqi general is irresponsible. It could undo everything that has been done. Obama's going to do it anyway.

There have been laws on the books for a long time protecting women in the workplace. Nothing has changed just because you bought into the hype.

Obstruction is in the eye of the beholder. Both sides have to be willing to give and take. It's always been Obama's way or the highway. Harry Reid is like a big wall in the Senate refusing to bring budget proposals passed by the House up for a vote when the Senate hasn't even passed a budget in three years.

Your perspective is from the wrong angle.

"guy with a tan". Heard from Berlusconi on Obama.

Muslims around the world know that Obama is their brother and will stand by them in the crunch.

In “Audacity of Hope” Obama writes:“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

Exactly what it should be as in all other 33 OECD countries. Know what's amazing ? Even with 50 million non-covered and over 100 other million badly-covererd (don't get too sick, folks...) at huge premiums, health care per capita in the US is among the highest in the world. Go figure.

You Grumpy Old Pricks really are getting crazier by the hour, or at least you're showing it more frequently. That "meaningless" war in Afghanistan was started by Bush, and allowed to be hopelessly mismanaged by Shrub in his rush into Iraq, which after we left after trillions were wasted, is worse off in standard of living and moves toward civil war. It's not Obama's buddies--the bin Ladens and the Saudi royals were BFF's with the Bushes--it's Bush's legacy. If you're eight years old and some country invading yours for no reason kills your mom and little brother, you're going to hate them the rest of your life, and if you're living a life that doesn't have much to recommend it, you might consider going for a little revenge.
