I didn't know Obama was a drunk until I saw him sober one time, just thought he had a joint or a cigarette occasionally. Oh by the way, did Jimmy Carter win the Senate seat????

That is good that you think on your own. That is why we have that grey matter on top of our necks. But if you actually sit down and put some thought on how you logically work thoughts out you will know what type thinker and person that you are. You are either a liberal, libertarian or a conservative. Now I am assuming that you are not a communist or a fascist so we just leave that out. You could have some libertarian beliefs mixed in. Only you can figure that out. I like to converse with people that think on their own and have new fresh ideas.

Great post.
What's amazing is how:
Right Wingers ignore how Obama governs exactly like Bush - but with a brain;
and
Left Wingers ignore how Obama governs just like Bush - but with a brain.
Bush/Cheney kept the Right Wing troops in line waving the flag, claiming he was "protecting" normal folks from crazy socialist commie leeeeeeeberals.
Obama keeps the troops in line by waving the flag and claiming he protecting the normal folks from crazy, fascist Right Wing Wackos.
The sad thing is, to a very small degree, both are somewhat true, but both are distractions from the real issues - who has the money- and who gets more money.
Wow! I think you have hit the ball out of the park. It is always the same old game but the keeps getting richer and richer. What is scary is that now that those that are running this game have control of most all the money and the only thing left for them to get their hands on is total power.

All about oil and making their rich campaign contributors wealthier. Oil was the game, money the gain. Every time I think of that trillion dollar Iraqi American embassy, I get disgusted. Wow, what a huge waste! I refuse to be associated with either party.
You nailed it exactly there Glorya. 3 out of 4 Americans now see Iraq as a mistake and I would add an ugly evil way to involve your fellow Americans into such a disastor. Obviously men(if you can call them such) such as cheney bush rumsfeld powell don't have a conscious and are not bothered by 4500 young naive Americans slaughtered so they could become very wealthy. It's times like these that make it difficult to understand how a God could allow them to go unpunished, that is so far. What is still scary is that there are 1 in 4 Americans you see out in the public that still believe this was a just war!Obviously these are the republican fringes of our society. Now the democrats are really no alternative but you have to choose between these two every election, that is so far! The permanent solution lies way up above and so far it or He has'st intervened yet.

Typical Right Winger - when you F.. up the country you blame moderates for not being able to stop you from doing it.
Man up. This debacle is yours. Not mine or my friends. You broke it - you bought it.
Don't try to share your guilt with those if us you attacked when we tried to educate you on the idiocy of your schemes. And if those who supported this unnecessary war feel no guilt - they are truly sociopaths. Marines in body bags and Trillions borrowed and wasted have to cause guilt and remorse in any rational mind.
Instead, join the rational folks in objecting to Obama's continuation of Bush's Right Wing Corporate Policies.
Having been so so so so wrong, so often, perhaps this anniversary will cause some Right Wingers to stop attacking, and instead join, the people who obviously make better choices and obviously place the country's welfare ahead of their own.
Hope springs eternal.
Yes, these hardcore republican freaks want all of we independents and moderate to put our blessings and votes to their right-wing freak politicians and when you don't the blame us for keeping weirdos like romney out of power. Untill they come to their senses we have to stand in their way and keep them at bay(no pun intended)

What I am now reading on Topix is pure sadness and despair. The tapping of keyboards have seemed to suddenly turn into hopelessness with no idea where we are heading. It seems as if the tail of a snake is leading the head.
I now truly believe that many people now see what is happening to our once great country and are frustrated and do not know what to do.
Oh sure, the socialist and communist are happy but the average American now sees that a huge hoax has been perpetrated upon him or her.
They never wanted to believe the truth as it was to ugly to deal with. It hurt their pride to admit such things were true. That they could have misjudged or made a mistake. Now they see it and it has become a dark cloud over their heads blurring out any hope of a positive future for them or their children. Sometimes you actually get what you ask for.
And of corse your solution is to put the party back in power that f-cked it up for 8 stressful years. Your idea of the truth is for the rest of we non-republicans( which outnumber you 2 to 1) to believe that bush was great, there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq,we just could'nt find them. Let's blow our budget way up involving ourselves in Syria,Iran,North Korea and lets force them all to believe exactly as we do. Yea let's sit back here in America and watch our army and navy blow their brains out all over the world while All the rest of we non-republicans pay for it. Sure glad folks like you are in the minority and I believe most Americans have realizwd how evil bush and cheney are.

follow you on that and tend to agree with you to some extent.but what would prevent someone from being conservative on one issue(just say,for example,on environmental issues)liberal on another issue(gun control,again these are just examples)libertarian on some other issues and totally indifferent on some issues.it is my belief that almost everyone tends to think that their own thoughts are in the center,and anyone who thinks differently is either left(liberal)or right(conservative)of the mainstream.

Oh my gosh, you have no idea how it was around our holiday table, sitting with a few "distracted" R wingers. Me screaming the whole time, this war is a "sham", "wrong", "all about oil & greed"... and that was at the VERY, very beginning. Dumb and distracted "by design" has been going on for years. Please. NOW, they want to preach & teach. Wow! I just want to b**ch slap some sense into them, but they are family and I'm not a redneck. But man, I wanted to dive across that table a time or two. However, it was Christian holidays, a terrible time to discuss politics around the table. So thank you, Columbus Native. I'm glad we agree.

When Bush helicoptered onto that aircraft carrier & gave the "mission accomplished" spill, talking about disgusted, sick & nauseous, I was.

So! You are STILL blaming Bush for everything that is happening now? Seriously?
Just curious. How do you explain the following promises he made and flip flopped on?
-allowing 5 days of public comment before signing any bills
-NO NEW TAXES on a family making less than $250K a year
-100% transparency in his administration
-support of traditional marriage 1 man-1 woman
-end income tax for seniors making less than $50K a year
-remove earmarks from PORK projects before he signs any bill
-bring ALL our troops home within ONE year
-put the Health Care negotiations on CSPAN
-NO LOBBISTS IN HIS ADMINISTRATION
-close Guantanamo
- to RESIGN if he didn't cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. I believe he stated that he should be a one term president.
-UNITE THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY
I guess all of that is Bush's fault, too, huh? I can't believe that you die hard libs are STILL not seeing the handwriting on the wall. Obama has lied to you and the people of this country until I don't know what else he CAN lie about. Bush screwed up and certainly needed to go, but for God's sake, man. OPEN YOUR EYES.
You sound like a boring a$$ rerun of Hannity. I said we all were to blame.

good post.i've been reading a great book,a biography about che Guevara,the argentine/Cuban revolutionary,by john lee Anderson.while I think che was a cold-blooded killer and not someone to be admired,you have to give him credit for his devotion to his cause.his ultimate goal was to bring down the U.S. by starting and getting us involved in wars all over the world(asia,africa,mid-east,etc .,draining us of our resources and slowly bleeding us to death.were he still alive,i would bet that he would be happy to see that we are now doing this to ourselves.

The rabid Bush haters can keep going on and on and on, but what does this have to do with the situation now? We are facing an economic disaster and instead of looking for real solutions, most of our politicians are only interested in rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The sequester happened, Obama played Chicken Little and guess what? The sky did not fall. I would like to think it perhaps woke up some of the public to the fact that cutting the rate of increase in spending just might be such a good idea that some REAL actual cuts might not be so bad. Obama talked in his inauguration speech about all the duplicative government offices, but when the sequester comes, his response is to close White House tours and talk about janitors losing their jobs. And Harry Reid DARES to blame the sequester for the tragic loss of Marines in a training exercise- the man is an absolute disgrace. And Harry - where's that budget you are constitutionally bound to deliver - four years and counting. Patty Murray has a budget proposal, Paul Ryan has a budget proposal - the first thing I want to see is an end to Base Line Budgeting - THEN start justifying a budget - fat chance.

Yes Jeff. You are right I have different thoughts on many things. I was accused of being a French liberal just the other day.I just look at things as what makes sense and what is right , wrong, or true. I told you that being open minded and fair would give you much deeper clearer thought.Forget the news media and look at all the pros and cons before you decide something.

Guevara was nothing more than a murdering communist revolutionary. Now is the time to think for yourself. You know what his plans were. Why is that plan being carried out now as you say by our country? Then just who is running this country and are they trying to destroy us? A very valid and thoughtful question. Think about that one for awhile.
