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.

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.
Riiiiight.

So that's why bushi boy invaded iraq and killed 4,400+ American soldiers for nothing.

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."

The sheer weight of the damage done to Blacks under Obama’s watch prompted some of his strong supporters to demonstrate in front the White House, this past Monday – a first, from that quarter. However, the event was mislabeled as a Day of Direct Action, which it was definitely not. That's like announcing you're launching armed struggle, and then challenging Obama to an arm wrestling contest.

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.
Galt thinks killing their leaders with drones is supporting terrorists.

HERE IS A REAL BARAKA Ajamu Baraka

The U.S. imperial juggernaut attempts to bamboozle its home audience with the fiction that its war against Syria is a “humanitarian” venture.“The immediate priority for anti-war, anti-imperialist, human rights activists in the U.S. is to strip away the moral pretext of humanitarian intervention and expose its ugly, imperialist reality.”

TALK ABOUT BUSH The Best Corporate Brand Yet: President Barack Obama
The Obama brand has worked wonders as the face of U.S. imperialism and rule of the rich. Black America is the brand’s “most prized” consumer.“The Obama brand has used the media to pervert the history of the Black struggle for justice by using the dead-end, ideological conclusion that the first so-called ‘Black president’ is ‘racial progress.’”

President Barack Obama is the American ruling class’s most valuable product to date. Once he went out on the presidential market in 2008, he was branded as a smooth-talking, elite educated symbol of “hope.” This has led to a highly successful 4-plus year campaign of rehabilitating the damage the Bush Jr. administration caused to the reputations of the financial speculators and war-hawk politicians. Of course, liberals and progressives are avid consumers of the Obama brand. However, the most prized consumer is the Black community. The branders target Black minds with the weapon of the corporate media. The Obama brand has used the media to pervert the history of the Black struggle for justice by using the dead-end, ideological conclusion that the first so-called “Black president” is “racial progress.”

keeping you upset since 2009 :-)
Orlando has book stores and libraries.
So you have nothing to offer in the way of Obama's past leadership accomplishments except upsetting Americans while he's learning on the job?

What are you saying exactly LNC?

Surely, you wouldn't have voted for someone without any past accomplishments in a leadership capacity.

So instead of constantly reminding me libraries have books, why don't you tell me why you voted for Obama based on his past leadership accomplishments?

I promise to be openminded.
