<quoted text> I can't list all of Barack Obama's accomplishments as a U.S. Senator ,but here's a few important ones. Read the entire article . "Don't be a dummy. When your smart-ass conservative friend asks you to name a bill that Obama helped write or get passed, here's a pretty big list to choose from."..."The Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act
Introduced by Sen. John McCain in May 2005, and cosponsored by Sen. Edward Kennedy. Barack Obama added three amendments to this bill.
While the bill was never voted on in the Senate, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Acts of 2006 and 2007, respectively, drew heavily upon the wording of this bill." ..."The Lugar-Obama Cooperative Threat Reduction.
Introduced by Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. Dick Lugar and Sen. Tom Coburn.
First introduced in November 2005 and enacted in 2007, this bill expanded upon the successful Nunn-Lugar threat reduction, which helped secure weapons of mass destruction and related infrastructure in former Soviet Union states." ... "Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006
This act of Congress, introduced by Senators Obama and Coburn, required the full disclosure of all entities or organizations receiving federal funds in FY2007."... Honest Leadership and Open Government Act
In the first month of the 110th Congress, Obama worked with Sen. Russ Feingold to pass this law, which amends and strengthens the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995.
Specificially, the changes made by Obama and Feingold requires public disclosure of lobbying activity and funding, places more restrictions on gifts for members of Congress and their staff, and provides for mandatory disclosure of earmarks in expenditure bills.
The House passed the bill, 411-8, on July 31. The Senate approved it, 83-14, on Aug. 2. At the time, Obama called it "the most sweeping ethics reform since Watergate." http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/07/07/5478...

You love his so much one would suspect you're a fifth column.
Putin is a KGB bad guy, but with respect to Islamic terrorists, Putin recognizes the danger, while Obama supports his Islamic buddies.

Otherwise, not much difference between the two.

Well, unlike a lot of you on the right we have a life outside of Topix. I'm catching up on my reading and tackling projects around the house.
Also, quite frankly, it gets really boring after a while to read the same old talking points from you and your right wing ilk.

Well, there IS that. A president with such a callous disregard for human life and what my fellow countrymen considered an accomplishment. Why I no longer knew them until the Tea Party movement and stumbling onto this thread when I found them again.

The corporate media are the megaphones of humanitarian death, as dispensed by the U.S. and its allies. If Obama says “Assad must go,” the high-paid press do all in their power to make the public crave his blood.“The media are loyal to the system, not to their profession, their readers, or their listeners.”

Donald Trump appeared on Monday's "Fox & Friends" and raged against National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden.

Snowden fled from Hong Kong to Russia over the weekend, his final destination unclear. He did not board a plane from Moscow to Havana on Monday, as some had expected. The New York Times reported that Snowden's absence from the plane headed to Cuba raised questions about whether the former NSA contractor had been detained by the Russian government.

Trump discussed Snowden's disappearance and said that spies "in the old days used to be executed." He said that authorities needed to find Snowden, arguing that the NSA leaker could provide other governments with classified information about U.S. surveillance programs.

"This guy is a bad guy," Trump said. "You know there is still a thing called execution. You really have thousands of people with access to the kind of material like this. We’re not going to have a country any longer."
