<quoted text> Romney does relate to people. Obama relates to you, and the other morons who are in denial and still worshipping his hope & change nonsense and his almost 4 years of failure: spend-crazy behavior, class warfare and campaigning, leaving the nation divided, devastated and bankrupt. He will probably go down in history as the biggest presidential failure since your other false idol, Jimmy Carter. Have another swig and keep dreaming.
BO hates real white people. He's a proven racist.

<quoted text>Try to remember who had control of both the House and the Senate,while those members were doing their utmost to set back all the hard work done by Bush while pushing their anti-prosperity agenda. Try to remember that Obama was part of that boondogle in the Senate,and was complaining about $380 billion dollar deficit and a 4.5% unemployment statistic.
Being busy, I borrowed this, but I agree with every word: "George W Bush made so many poor decisions during his presidency that I consider him the worst President in my life. A President doesn’t have to be the smartest man alive. The President doesn’t have an effect on everything, so I tried to be fair and only include things where he has a direct or in-direct influence. So here are a few reasons why Bush was a bad President
1.Took more vacation time than any other President
2.Invaded Iraq to get rid of WMDs which didn’t exist
3.Implemented protectionist steel tariffs
4.Outed a CIA agent for political purposes
5.Fired prosecutors who refused to abuse their positions for political purposes
6.Disregarded FISA laws and wiretappd Americans without warrants
7.Never caught Osama Bin Laden
8.Failed to plan for Iraq occupation after Saddam’s government fell and the subsequent occupation has killed 150,000 Iraqi civilians.
9.Created a vague “enemy combatant” status in order to indefinitely hold foreigners and even US citizens without trying or charging them with a crime.
10.Used torture to interrogate prisoners despite evidence that says information acquired through unreliable
11.Prematurely said the mission in Iraq had been accomplished.
12.Approved budgets that outspent our tax revenue by hundreds of billions of dollars.
13.Poor leadership on response to Hurrican Katrina
14.Little or no policy changes on our changing climate
15.Didn’t veto a single bill for six years and when he finally did it was to shoot down the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act.
16.Passed the Military Commissions Act, which removes the right to Habeus Corpus, one of the most fundamental safe guards against tyrannical governments.
17.Pulled out of the Anti-Ballistic Missle Treaty
18.Issues illegal “signing statements” when passing bills, saying which portions of the bill he will or won’t enforce.? This essentially allows him to rewrite legislation.
19.Pushed for elections in Palestine that lead to a Hamas victory, and then tried to overthrow them.
20.Allowed Don Rumsfeld to outsource much of the Iraq war to security contractors which are not subject to Iraqi or American military laws or standards.
21.Tried to appoint his personal attorney, Harriet Myers, to the supreme court.
22.Dangerous diplomatic philosophy that discourages peaceful negotiations with certain nations.
23.Appointed John Bolton, a man who said “there is no such thing as the United Nations“, as the UN Ambassador.
24.Consistent intellectual disinterest in his job.
25.Failed to act on warning signs of the September, 11th attacks.
26.Was dishonest with the American people about his National Guard service.
27.Lied about giving up golf in a time of war.
28.Dissolving the Iraqi army right after the war, putting thousands of trained soldiers into the insurgency.
29.Believing Paul Wolfowitz that the war and subsequent reconstruction would pay for itself with Iraqi oil revenue.
30.His policies contributed to a quadrupling of the price of oil.
31.Lied to the American people that Saddam Hussein was working with Al-Qaeda
32. At the end of his term the economy was heading straight for a depression and the financial markets crashed due to his and his administrations lack of oversight.
To be fair, I’ll also list all the things I think he’s done right:
1. Negotiated a deal with North Korea to end their nuclear program. It did not work and Obama is now dealing with it.
2. Negotiated a deal with Libya to end their WMD program. Obama had to get rid of Kaddafi."

GFY, some more.

<quoted text>You forgot that Saddam Hussein threatened the United States with his 'weapons of mass destruction' prior to the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. You also didn't mention that the Bush Administration signed a status of forces agreement with Iraq before the 2008 election.

32. As President he and his administration are the “Executive” branch of the Federal Government. His administration heads up all the departments of the Federal Government. They are the ones who watchdog the going ones of the country including the financial markets and the economy.
At the end of his term the economy was heading straight for a depression and the financial markets crashed due to his and his administrations lack of oversight.

The President's Hit List
After California voters approved Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriage in 2008, opponents published the names of donors, who were later linked with zip codes and Google Maps. Donors reported getting death threats. Boycotts were set against businesses, and activists encouraged customers to call and harass business owners.
If the political left is going to treat everyone who supports traditional marriage as bigots, and target them for personal smears, then we are in for another ugly run of the culture wars.
[I]t's increasingly clear that the real point of these disclosure laws is not to inform voters but to get donor names in order to intimidate them from participating in politics.
