i would expect Obama's popularity to wane when he starts acting like Bush on steroids.
just look at how unpopular Bush was when he was in office.
Abraham Lincoln was vastly unpopular for doing the right thing too.

History has a way of exonerating presidents who were judged wrongly by the ignorance of their day.

None of the above are myths. All of the above are facts. We know your response will be it is Bush's fault. It's the republican controlled house that is at fault. What listed above is propaganda?

I'm telling you what NBC reported. There was never any distrust under the Bush administration. Germans can read too. They know this administration targeted even fellow Americans who they deemed suspicious. This president clearly stated the opposition, i.e. conservatives/Tea Party, are "a potential threat to democracy" right before the targeting and inquisitions began.
But your illogical Fox fixation is beyond help.
Your complacency, if it continues, will place you among millions of others who were also on the wrong side of history.
You need to prove that claim there was never any distrust under bushie boy son.

You continue to make these wild claims with nothing to support it.

I'm thinking, especially in Nevada, those early "votes" will also be cast in California.
Looks like the Democrats just couldn't find enough people interested in early voting in Ohio.
But, woah! Look at what happened when the Republicans voted early.
Romney/Ryan takes Ohio.
... and Virginia, and Florida, and Wisconsin,... and Pennsylvania.
Obama is burned toast.
The only things I wonder about is what excuse he'll make for missing Romney's inauguration. There aren't any hostages being released, like Carter used.
This will be too much of a blow to his ego. He's going to get slaughtered in this election. He won't be able to face that.

Bush-Era NSA Whistleblower Makes Most Explosive Allegations Yet About Extent of Gov’t Surveillance — and You Won’t Believe Who He Says They Spied On
Russ Tice, a former intelligence analyst and Bush-era NSA whistleblower, claimed Wednesday that the intelligence community has ordered surveillance on a wide range of groups and individuals, including high-ranking military officials, lawmakers and diplomats.
He also made another stunning allegation. He says the NSA had ordered wiretaps on phones connected to then-Senate candidate Barack Obama back in 2004.
“They went after–and I know this because I had my hands literally on the paperwork for these sort of things–they went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of Congress, both Senate and the House, especially on the intelligence committees and on the armed services committees and some of the–and judicial.
He went on:“But they went after other ones, too. They went after lawyers and law firms. All kinds of–heaps of lawyers and law firms. They went after judges. One of the judges is now sitting on the Supreme Court that I had his wiretap information in my hand. Two are former FISA court judges. They went after State Department officials. They went after people in the executive service that were part of the White House–their own people.”
Then Tice dropped the bombshell about Obama.
“Here’s the big one,” he said.“[T]his was in summer of 2004, one of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with a 40-something-year-old wannabe senator for Illinois. You wouldn’t happen to know where that guy lives right now would you? It’s a big white house in Washington, D.C. That’s who they went after, and that’s the president of the United States now.”
FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds and Tice agreed that such wide-ranging surveillance of officials could provide the intelligence agencies with unthinkable power to blackmail their opponents.
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/06/20/bu... #
Bush who?
The problem for Sibel Edmonds and Tice is Bush never called his opposition "a potential threat to democracy" or had a desire to "fundamentally transform this country" or actually DID blackmail his opponents - unlike this administration.

The fact that Bush refuses to criticize Obama should not be taken for an endorsement. In the words of President George Bush, "it just wouldn't do any good."
No, bushie boy just understands he's already done enough damage to America, Americans and the GOP party.

So he simply tries to stay away.

When liberals don't trust this administration after the IRS debacle and John Kerry has to quell fears in Europe about Obama's NSA program, I'm pretty sure there's no longer a "proper balance" as was under the Bush administration.

What's wrong with drone studies? If it makes the country safer to open U.S. airspace I say why wait, do it now.

<quoted text> Good morning! I'm a fair person so, I defend Obama knowing full well the right is doing everything to see him fail. My knock on Obama is, he should focus like a laser on jobs &, stop being sidetracked on social issues. If the black president isn't going to push the black agenda as far as economic equality, it will never happen. The black unemployment rate is ridiculous. Other than that, I have no issues with him. The man is making Thanksgiving dinner out of table scraps. The right is so confused, they don't know whether to lose their identity to gain ground on the hispanic vote or, to stick to guns & lie, cheat, & steal those same votes. One things for sure, they'll never win the presidency again without the hispanic vote. The change in demographics is already too much to overcome!
Do you also play Dress-Up with the other kids?

His Egyptian Brothers are eating Crow and not a Thanksgiving Dinner of Roast Dog. No more White House barbeques for the brothers!
