No doubt about it. Obama did what was necessary to avoid a war with North Korea. Even Republican Congressman Peter King has been praising Obama and giving him "full credit" for doing the right thing in his handling of North Korea.
Of the 33 nations the US has bombed and/or invaded since 1946 to "protect our Freedom" none have ever had a nuclear weapon. It's the only protection a nation has from the US.

<quoted text>When you say bring it down are you talking about the 5.5 million Americans that lost their jobs in the last months of the Bush days or the near economic collapse of 2008 due to Bank and Wall St. scams? It would be near impossible to bring it crashing down past those levels. As a matter of fact there is no economic leading indicator today that has NOT improved since the last dark days of Bush. If Obama is trying to destroy America he's moving in the wrong direction to do it since everything is better today than when he started.
Barack Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression.

The economy sucks, unemployment is high, terrorists are becoming bolder, IRS is Gestapo, the government is scandal-ridden with criminal and Fascist democrats, and Obama bin Lying is responsible...

Young graduates are in debt, out of work and on their parents couches. People in their 30s and 40s can't afford to buy homes or have children. Retirees are earning near-zero interest on their savings.

AND... The obama administration seems to be going out of the way to prove the republican conspiracies about them are true.

First Benghazi was a coverup, the Fascist Obama administration has criminalized the news-gathering process, the IRS has become a gestapo agency, next we will be finding obama's real birth certificate...

AND... Your addiction and obsession for dumbass is an ardent interest of your pursuit you idiot... I wish someone had an answer to your deranged addiction to fool.

It's the culture..

Yes, we know. We heard the same talking points (propaganda) already that you are repeating.
So typical, that you don't provide any specifics, just innuendo.
If you do get specific, we will learn the comparison is not even close or pertinent, but please, feel free to continue on with your misleading propaganda without any specifics.
Do what you fascists socialists (AKA Democrats) do best. Lie & spin.
God forbid you to backup a single thing you say!
The embassy attack, Obama's 1 to Bush's countless attacks. Radical terrorist had a fields day under Bush's watch.

Drones, Bush killed the first American with the drone program, Obama's scrutinized. Write tapping, the CIA so called scandal targeting conservatives but, vice versa &, the list goes on.

The original Patriot Act was simply to monitor the chat between terrorists to break up another plot.
The Democrats extended the Patriot Act under Obama and now this administration thinks Americans are the enemy confiscating our private information without our knowledge.
Sorry, Homer. Can't blame this overreaching abuse of power on anyone but Obama. He drew the line dividing us up into either his "friends" or his "enemies" category.
Obama's actually managed to make us forget we still have real enemies.
"Now that he's in charge of keeping America safe, President Obama sounds a bit less strident. His attorney general, Eric Holder, has asked Congress to renew three controversial provisons of the Patriot Act that expire in 2010, disappointing liberal Democrats and civil liberties groups who say the provisions endanger civil liberties and foster inappropriate government spying. At the top of this list is the so-called "lone wolf" provision, which allows the government to track and monitor a suspected terrorist with far less evidence than typically required.

However, the Obama administration is backing a Senate bill that would increase congressional and judicial oversight over government eavesdropping, while preserving most of the eavesdropping options granted by the Patriot Act. That bill, S. 1962, passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on Oct. 8, 2009, and Holder endorsed it in a letter dated Nov. 9. It keeps the lone wolf provision intact, as Holder requested, but with new requirements for showing such monitoring is necessary" Check this out:

Racial Diversity Efforts Ebb for Elite Careers, Analysis Finds
The share of the nation’s lawyers who are minorities and women, which had been growing slowly but steadily for years, fell in 2010 for the first time since NALP, the National Association for Law Placement, began keeping statistics in 1993. The deep recession not only disproportionately hurt African-Americans in many fields, but it also led businesses to make diversity programs less of a priority. And a growing number of states — including Arizona, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire and Oklahoma — have moved to ban race-based affirmative action in recent years. California, Florida and Washington did so in the 1990s.

Such numbers raise the question of whether the private sector’s commitment to affirmative action and diversity programs is eroding, even as the Supreme Court again considers a high-profile case involving a public university.

“We’re at a precipice,” said John Page, the president of the National Bar Association, an 88-year-old group representing black lawyers and judges.“There is diversity fatigue. We could fall backwards very quickly.”

Even more worrisome to some people than the small number of African-Americans at the upper echelons of many organizations is a lack of progress at entry levels. In Texas legal circles, there have been some notable symbolic gains for black lawyers at the top of the profession; both the State Bar of Texas and the Houston Bar Association just elected their first black presidents. But many black lawyers said they worried that there were fewer young black lawyers in the pipeline for future leadership roles.

While blacks made up only 2.65 percent of the partners at Houston firms last year, that figure represents progress as the share of black partners more than doubled over the past decade, according to statistics kept by NALP, the law placement association. At the lower levels of firms, black lawyers have lost some ground, however. Houston firms reported that 4.74 percent of their associates last year were black, down from 4.96 percent in 2002, the association said.

You may not have agreed with Bush's policies to protect all Americans from our mutual enemy. But at least he didn't divide this country to the point where you were considered the enemy.
I am now the enemy, Homer.
That is a very dangerous place to be in a free country when those in power use powerful agencies to punish the opposition.
Bush would have never dreamed of doing such a thing. Big organizations are always audited under any administration. There were 3, I believe, under the Bush administration.
Clinton not only went after big organizations but specific individuals. O'Reilly was audited 3 times during the Clinton administration. He is just one example.
This administration has crossed the line. We are in unchartered waters and the Constitution, it seems, no longer protects all of us.
Carol, turn off Fox News, quit reading rightwing blogs and opinion, unplug for a bit. We are not enemies and you are not considered the enemy. Now knock it off.

Latest figures say U.S. deficit declining, economy improving
for some reason all the polls indicate that Americans are much more concerned about that then they are the FOX generated faux scandals.
but since only 3 million 'Americans' watch FOX, what do you expect?
A little fibbing on your part. The deficit is not declining, it is growing, growing at a rate lower then predicted, but the deficit is still growing.

Will his agenda help Given his calculated fanaticism, Obama is just the type to deploy the heartless bureaucratic, police, and military forces of government against citizens whose only crime is to exercise the rights that are their birthright, under God and the Constitution. Today, public attention focuses on the IRS, abused to attack the resources and curtail the political activity of those who oppose the design for despotism. Soon and very soon, it will be the IRS and the police, abused to attack free speech and the free exercise of religion. Then it will be Homeland Security and local police forces, under the guise of anti-terrorist martial law, abused to arrest and detain evangelical Christians, Catholics, homeschoolers, and those who exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. Then it will be Obama's fondly imagined domestic army, as large and well-funded as the military, moving against states whose officials refuse to acquiesce in the unconstitutional abridgment of the residual sovereign rights guaranteed to the states, respectively, and to the people, by the U.S. Constitution's 10th Amendment."

Is that why Rethugs listen to FauxNews and other Murdoch owned sources? Because it promotes only the negatives regarding Democrats and downplays anything positive? That explains why you people have such closed minds and tunnel vision.
