NDAA, assassination of US citizens, telecom spying/immunity, indefinite detention w/o charges, seizing of all electronics within 100 miles of the border (majority of Americans).

You could go on but that pretty much covers the basics

America is weak. Have you forgotten how bush took us to two wars against nations with no military what-so-ever and couldn't win. WW2 was won in less time than bush took to lose in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Have you forgotten how Obama took us to 5 new wars and one excalation..........and maybe 7.

The Patriot Act has had an effect in reduction in national terrorist attacks and increaqsing our security....though, it may be a bit heavy handed, that maybe due to Bush/Cheney initiated it......."drones filling the skys"?....Really?.....I understand, you are a bit all over...but my original point was about presenting a sense of consistancy from one administration to the next.....

Don't get me wrong. I am not defending Obama, just that McCain has foot in mouth disease. It appears he is taking lessons from Romney first complaining we didn't attack quickly enough, then saying we should not attack, then saying we have to attack. No matter what happens, McCain is opposed to Obama.
It makes it really hard to believe anything McCain says. The whole republican party is obstinate for the sake of being obstinate. Instead they could gain some ground if they actually made proposals and stood by them.(Note, I am not saying Obama does that, in fact he doesn't. He just caves to every republican demand, never giving his base anything. This is much of the reason for the republican implosion. First they say something, then Obama gives it to them, then they have to oppose it; the whole party continuously flip flops.)
Not true - Obama said after this second election it is was going to be his way or no way. He signed the sequester and has done everything he can to weaken America. He refused to move money around on the Air traffic controllers until the people got so made at him that he knew he had to do something. Obama is POWER hungry and will use anyone he can to gain what he wants. He stomped all over the graves of those 22 kids and really got mad at the Reps when his bill did not pass the SENATE which is DEMS. He signs executive orders to keep him and Holder out of the hands of the people and then there is the VIDEO LIE - he is a loser.

Look, don't act like a teabagger. Don't sit there and approve eveything he does like a Kock Bros puppet. Just because you voted for the man doesn't mean you can't criticize the things he's doing, when you criticized Bush for doing the same things. And I'm not all over the place. I'll ask you this question. Do you want Obama to listen to the likes of McCain and cross his own self imposed 'red line' in the Syrian quagmire of bullshit?

The main thing the UNpatriot Act has done is strip every one of us of our basic rights. The only reason the moron Boston Marathon bomber was read his rights is because he was caught on national television. If Homeland Insecurity comes to your door at three in the morning, you'll be 'disappeared'. You ain't gonna get read your Miranda rights. They don't really exist anymore.

So you disagreed on Clusterfuckistan but you want him to support the Al-Queda backed rebels and mire us down in the desert qicksand? No matter which side we're on in Sandland, we're on the wrong side. I'm so sorry you think my questioning Obama, you, and the teabag troglodyte brigade is belligerent. This is our job, to question what they do.

LOL, you are listening to right wing "news" sources, who, after lying to the public repeated got sued. The case went to the USSC where, instead of saying they weren't lying, said it was perfectly OK for a "news" source to lie to the public. The right wing USSC agreed and said they could lie all they want. Now you appear to be believing those lies.
For example, the sequester said explicitly that the money had to be cut from the FAA. Had he not withheld the money he would have been breaking the law.
As to signing the sequester, yes, that was pretty stupid. Giving everything the GOP could ever hope for, after their refusal to negotiate on anything was just further indication Obama is a closet republican.
The funny part is there are a great many reasons to oppose Obama, you just don't seem to know what they are.

You are being lied to. Your post of a link to Fox news means there is no credibility whatsoever.

I don't understand how anyone can listen to this nonsense. You have to actively forget what they said yesterday to believe the new nonsense today. You have to practice wanton ignorance.
