Obama a centrist
From the resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, A CONSERVATIVE THINK TANK:
"Charges of radicalism, socialism, retreat and surrender are BIZARRE."
"Looking at the range of Obama domestic and foreign polities, and his agency and diplomatic appointments, the conclusion is clear:
THIS PRESIDENT IS A MAINSTREAM, PRAGMATIC MODERATE OPERATING IN THE CENTER OF AMERICAN POLITICS..."
"Obama's approach to terrorism has been similar to Bush's, while MORE AGGRESSIVELY TARGETING LEADERS OF TERRORIST GROUPS.

Actually, I was thinking Obama is probably a closet Republican.

You know, he was reared by rich white people in Kansas, the reddest of states.

I think his political career probably resulted from a conspiracy (that possibly included his Republican grandmother and Ronald Reagan) for Obama to destroy the Democratic party FROM WITHIN.

Just look at what Obama has done and tell ME these are not Republican policies:

-After he's been in office 31 months, Americans still have ALL their guns, including their assault rifles

-He is friends with and was endorsed by the Texas minister (Kirbyjon H. Caldwell of Houston) who officiated at the wedding of Bush's daughter. Caldwell's work was the inspiration for Bush's "Faith-based initiative."

-Pushed through a health-care plan that sprang from the Heritage Foundation and that was endorsed years ago by a whole range of conservatives, including Mitt Romney

-Announced he would allow off-shore drilling for oil

-Increased troop levels in Afghanistan

-His "stimulus" plan included a fix for the alternative minimum tax, which only affects rich people

-At the insistence of Republican Senator Susan Collins, he EXCLUDED most school construction projects from getting stimulus money

-Allowed wind generators off Cape Hatteras, royally p*ssing off environmentalists

-Favored banks and corporations over middle-class taxpayers when doling out money

-Uses government to help set a context for private sector risk-taking and community initiative

-Gay marriage is still against the laws in most places

-Guantanamo is still open

-The Patriot Act is still in place

-He's personally opposed to abortion.

The Gov't is responsible for a secure, stable and valuable currency. Outside that, they have no business sticking their fingers in the economy.

“For all the efforts to make Barack Obama appear exotic, even alien, he can claim a heritage that could hardly be more American.

"There is something American, in the best sense of the word, in the swift march of (this family) over the last century and a half from small farms to medium-size towns to big cities and sprawling metropolitan areas and finally across the oceans.”

"...Barack Obama is related to both the Bushes and to Dick Cheney.

"...His great-great grandfather’s mother was a Davis and she was a first cousin to Jefferson Davis."

I thought you might find the following article from snopes.com interesting:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers...

Information about Obama's being a student at Occidental college is included.

"The mission of Occidental College is to provide a gifted and diverse group of students with a total educational experience of the highest quality -- one that prepares them for leadership in an increasingly complex, interdependent and pluralistic world.

"The distinctive interdisciplinary and multicultural focus of the College's academic program seeks to foster both the fulfillment of individual aspirations and a deeply rooted commitment to the public good."

Then this makes him a liar who got elected by AA's on false democrat doctrines. No one denies that he is a political crony whose abuse of black americans is accepted because he calls himself black. Many black americans themselves decry black on black crime, asking why it is ok among blacks to accept this type of genocidal crime. Yet here we have Obama doing same, and Marine Patty et al continuously support him here beyond common sense. Black americans are suffering from worse unemployment than whites as a result of BHO's negligence, and YET, it is acceptable because it's a black on black crime.

As for "Favored banks and corporations over middle-class taxpayers when doling out money", Obama's Solyndra scandal gets worse: the loan was RESTRUCTURED BY OBAMA to favor a bigtime Obama donor, a private venture capitalist Anhauseur (rich and white)- over the taxpayers in case of default. This rich white venture capitalist visited the WH several times. So BHO sells out his black AAs for these rich white guys. What is that? An Uncle Tom. Damn he's not even a real black dude, just an acceptable halfsie.

U sound like a pompous azz, like Obama. U get tingles up your leg hearing words like Pulitzer, Nobel, related to who's who's who. What your saying is Obama is quite some royalty -on the white side, ooooooooo! You throw the word exotic in there to describe Obama, like he's a rare opal. Fubo, he's a big ZERO. You might be interested to know according to Darwin, we all related to Lucy so your one drop theory is fubo like u and Obo.

This is not the first time I have heard this,many of the rich I service in investments feel the same way,I was surprised by how many conservatives quietly smirk about this,It was said to me once"we have a guy who gives us everything we want while destroying our opposing party" it is only my opinion that there are no real differences between the two parties when it comes to gaining wealth for themselves,it also bothers me that members of congress along with their aids are "exempt" from any prosecution from insider trading-always follow the money trail its the only place left where at least half of the truth can be found.

If so, you can correct that false impression. I don't.
We tried gambling on a Community Organizer with zero experience in the business of runnning anything. We must correct that horrible mistake in November. After all, we have our children's futures to consider.

The government cannot fix the economy...so the question is irrelevant. The government can however, destroy the economy...which is what Obama and the liberal Congress are doing.

To ask if the gov can fix the economy is like asking if the parasite can make it's host healthy again after bleeding it dry and crushing it's will to live....If the parasite wants it's host to live it can only release it - set it free and stop sucking the blood out of it...
