what the right wing media would like us all to believe about the guy they voted for will not be of much interest for those who publish history textbooks.
Are liberals in charge of that also? of course...liberal history on 9-11, in text books, now states: the moslems that bombed the Twin Towers were 'just' Freedom fighters. 9-11 was just a like a car crash in a major intersection. Nothing to see-move along states the liberal history.

Well Carol, how about coming up with an exact quote where Obama declares half the country political enemies? How about coming up with a concrete example of how he tried to censor the press?
Since when is making sure that organizations applying for tax exempt status are what they claim to be "interrogation"?
He does make mention of condemning/blaming U.S administration of 1967 for having "knowledge if not outright approvl" for the harsh regimism of Suharto militarily based, repressive anti-communist rule of Indonesia in the late 60's.

WTH-1967, America was still dealing with the commieTics of Vietnam.

Hello McFly! If you can't talk about Bush, then how in hell are you going to get President Obama off the hook for not accomplishing anything worthwhile in his first term or to-date in his second? I mean, I think that Nobel Prize was confiscated. The Best Bent Over for the Russians Award doesn't count.

Let's face it. We Democrats are married to Bush in order to excuse Obama.

Don't ever call anyone stupid again.
Just two days ago, it was headline news that members of Congress and their staffs won’t face potentially massive hikes in their health care premiums next year as many had feared because of a clause in President Obama’s health care overhaul.
Pelosi had said members of Congress and their staffs must enroll in the exchanges as required by the law.
Guess the law only applies to us peons and not the elite.
Like cake?
Correction....it wasn't Pelosi who said members of Congress and their staffs must enroll in the exchanges. It was Republican Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), who added that amendment to the health care law to insure so that lawmakers live under the exact SAME RULES as everyone else.

And now this: Sonic says Canadian Press can never lie: The ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ poster appeared on the State Dept. website on the very day the Obamas departed for their Martha’s Vineyard holiday, but not to worry buzz about Bo flying on is own separate plane was destined to pick up the slack.

“The United States has offered a $10 million reward for information that helps authorities kill or capture Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,” was the message that appeared on the State Dept. website, August 10, 2013.

“This reward is second only to information leading to Ayman al-Zawahiri, the chief of Al Qaeda’s (sic) network, and symbolizes our ongoing commitment to helping our partners in the region eliminate this threat from their territory,” the website notice boasts.

This is Uncle Sam’s response to the August 10 attacks in Baghdad that killed 69 people and injured more than 170. Ten explosions, which appeared to have been coordinated, were similar to attacks in Baghdad on the previous Tuesday in which 50 people were killed.


Thousands of Christians killed going about their daily lives by radical Islamists don’t get a mention by the Obama regime and its U.S. Department of State.

Like most community activists, Barack and Michelle O'bama rely heavily on ‘Street Theatre’. They can’t come on presidential and first ladyish with all those late-night TV shows available with which to to mock the not so long ago dignity of the presidential office.

Oh give me a break. It's not "the truth" if the media doesn't report it.

But I am most grateful that the media took time (a 5,400 word expose in the Washington Post,for example) to talk about Mitt Romney pinning a kid down when he was a teenager and cutting his hair. Or talking about why he wouldn't try to persuade the 47% who are career entitlement taking Democrats to vote for him.
These were front page newsworthy and political earthquakes.

You act like Obama's real identity and history are equally important. Get your priorities straight and thank God that the liberal media knows what is best for you and will help to transform America to grow that 47% of takers into a majority. Plenty of people who live in Detroit or Greece or Zimbabwe are perfectly happy.

Sonic, O'bama's brain has been damaged by drugs. He is suffering from Alzheimers. O'bama is unfit to govern.
so any speculation as to what problem caused Bush to crash our economy?

stupid? stupid enough to have listened to stupid people who had to end up saying stuff like this...

Even Mr. Hubbard now seems unwilling to defend the tax cuts he shepherded into law. Earlier this year, he was asked by The New York Times what he thought about the repeal of many of the Bush-era tax cuts on Jan. 1. He said many of those tax cuts were no longer relevant to our tax and economic problems.

Mr. Hubbard even suggested that higher revenues, long a Republican no-no, were not a bad thing.“We need a tax system that can promote economic growth and raise the revenue the American people want to devote to government,” he said.

DUH.
Even today polygamy is no big deal in Hawaii.(It is considered a "petty misdemeanor" punishable with 30 days in jail.)Besides, Obama's mother didn't know Barack Obama, Sr. was married. There was absolutely no reason for her to travel to Kenya to have her baby but there were several reasons (a wife and two children) for Obama, Sr. NOT to have her travel to Kenya for the birth.

i said 'on air'.

Canada's Radio Act requires that "a licenser may not broadcast....any false or misleading news." The provision has kept Fox News and right wing talk radio out of Canada and helped make Canada a model for liberal democracy and freedom. As a result of that law, Canadians enjoy high quality news coverage including the kind of foreign affairs and investigative journalism that flourished in this country before Ronald Reagan abolished the "Fairness Doctrine" in 1987. Political dialogue in Canada is marked by civility, modesty, honesty, collegiality, and idealism that have pretty much disappeared on the U.S. airwaves. When Stephen Harper moved to abolish anti-lying provision of the Radio Act, Canadians rose up to oppose him fearing that their tradition of honest non partisan news would be replaced by the toxic, overtly partisan, biased and dishonest news coverage familiar to American citizens who listen to Fox News and talk radio. Harper's proposal was timed to facilitate the launch of a new right wing network, "Sun TV News" which Canadians call "Fox News North."

and anyone who has spent time making fun of birthers know that Canada Free Press is right wing nutjob birther site. lying is the name of their game.
