Presidents are not selected too serve at the behest of the people but serve special interest groups and maintain the status Quo. Obama was aware of this when he was selected for this corporate Wall Street position. The only people who don't get this is the zombies, still accepting the nonsense of a free democracy.

They utlized feminized torture on muslims,
womens' underwear was placed over their heads.
According to the Political Handbook, this method is extreme torture and is tantamount to mass murder.

At the same time, muslims sawed off the heads of American soldiers.
They then tossed the heads in a corner for the rats to feed on.
According to the Political Handbook, THIS method is fully justified and legal.

Muslims go on jihad rampages and murder dozens of Americans on U.S. soil.
THIS is politically correct.

There is a radical muslim in the White House who wants to be the country's first dictator.
He supports muslim terrorism.

MERRY CHRISTMAS
HAPPY NEW YEAR

As a repub, I'm going to have to find a reason to b1tch about this.

Hey Repubs, why does this upset us? Do we like this move by Obama, since it supports Bush lawyers who helped us maintain our torture actions?

Or do we not like this move...because he's a Dem...even though we appreciate it.

What's the party line on this...we upset?

This is a sad commentary as to who and what we are as a people and a nation. We decry governments that condom and practice torture and human rights violations, yet we protect those within our government that approved torture. The hypocrisy stinks to high heaven.

It comes from the left, it has to be condemned. The Bush administration, the war on terrorists, waterboarding. It must all now be condemned, whether it makes sense or not, it is now tinged with liberalism. If Obama supports concealed weapons, then we must rally for the repeal of all gun rights. If a liberal says yes, we must say no. No exceptions. Sorry, but that's the platform. Defend or deny, but never the two shall meet.

No torture was approved. The definition of torture was changed after the fact to call actions "torture" that never were torture.

You anti-American scumbag.

You are equating a GOVERNMENT with a bunch of criminals. Of course since YOU are of the criminal Republicrumb scum ideology you love to elevate them to the level of our government.

You ignorant, useless hicks are all the same. You spend all day listening to Nazi propaganda from Beck and Lushsnot and then you come here and think anyone believes anything you say.

You are anti-American to the core. Go take your fat brats and swim back to Europe....if they will have you.

Bumya Bush, the worst President in US History is despised by all decent human beings and is even despised by most Republicrumbs.

Considering that Republicrumbs are the scum of the earth to be despised by them says it all.

Clinton: 23 million jobs created.
Bush: 2 million jobs created ALL of them government jobs.

Bush: losing 850,000 jobs A MONTH
Obama: ended Bush's 2nd recession in 2009

Bush: record losses on Wall Street
Obama: record gains on Wall Street

If Obama were actually a Democrat instead of a moderate Republicrumb we would be doing MUCH better.

All good things come from the progressive left.

All evil comes from the right.

That is simply the way God's world works.

Most prisoners of the Japanese would have considered waterboarding a break from the everyday torture methods that the Japanese used. I noticed that you have no evidence that would support your false claim.

Then if your neighbor comes over and waterboards you, you would be just fine with that.
