Obama, McChrystal start private Oval Office talk

I call it the HCR "LAW". Calling it "Hillarycare " was more appropriate since she had a major hand in what the bill should look like than "Obamacare "- since "Obamacare " was actually chiseled out by Congress and the Senate- and approved by Obama.  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #198)

I really wanted to argue with you here...but I couldn't find ANYTHING "wrong" with what you said....gosh, you're taking away all the fun in my night...  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #195)

OMG!! An educated person has arrived on TOPIX!! Unbelievable! I agree with what you said. One thing I'll disagree with however, these people on here haven't forgotten how to think independently- they just don't care. It's ALL about HATING the other guy, even if what he says and does gels with their thinking. If he doesn't involve the government enough in the oil crisis, he's WRONG. If he involves the government or wants to hold BP accountable, he's WRONG there too. That should clue you in.... The SAD thing is: We no longer live in a "United" States. We really are divided.....  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #192)

He bails out Big Business and Banks. Many of the complainers say he's not injecting the government into the Gulf crisis enough. He pumps more business dollars into the wallets of the Health Insurance companies. Please tell me how he's a socialist.... Half of us are without jobs??? The last time I looked the unemployment rate was 9.7% not 50%. Are my facts wrong again???  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #189)

LOL. Funny. Goes to show how you bind yourself to wrong information. Here's a mission for you: Find me a poll that shows 63% in the last 48 hours.... If you're going to stand by this...show me the FACT.  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #185)

You keep getting in deep with the numbers you're throwing out there. I'll save you any more embarassment. Stick with the subject of the article...  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #149)

I'd asked you to explain all of these incompetencies with examples but it might take awhile...  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #73)

With all due respect, YOU posted the numbers and made the comment that 2/3 of the American people think that Obama should be mocked. Is there any site on the web that you trust as being unbiased? As for November, it looks like you are going to be right. In fact the odds are in favor of another change in the House since in the modern era, the incumbant party in the WH has lost seats to the other party in midterm. As for getting the House to "zero" fund the HCR bill- good luck. And the tide IS turning on the HCR law and it's not in your favor. Having the voting public repealing HRC in 2012??? Good luck. No Gold Stars needed. Just copy and paste this into your notebook on your computer and we'll see about HCR in 2010 & 2012. Get back to me then. I should be around on here. Just look for the most "Clueless " and "Nut" icons. We'll see just how clueless and nuts I am, sweetheart. :o)  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #61)

Kind of NICE to be called "Babycakes ". Thanks! :o) But as you pointed out in your last post on this subject: "63 percent against Obamacare, pretty high and that is todays number..."- you are WRONG again. You are living in the past on May 24th. It's June 23rd now and Rasmussen shows 55% opposed. From my math- that's quite a drop- so I think you should revise your 2/3 claim...

Bad mouth all you want. That is your right. But why is it that I can say, as I did on this thread, tongue in cheek, that "it is okay to mock the Commander in Chief..." and I get "agree" and "brillant " icons popping up? It seems to be: It's "okay" to mock *this* Commander in Chief but it's not okay to mock the last CIC???? It works both ways....and when you have an administration who says: It's "unpatriotic " to speak out against a war or a President and his policies....how many of us agree with that way of thinking? I know I don't.  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #32)

I didn't know we were just talking about health care reform when you said that two thirds of the people mock Obama: Where did you find this number? I just researched a number of polls and found the oppose on HCR at between 49% and 55%. Still much lower than 2/3.  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #27)

You are absolutely right. It is on Obama's watch but I thought you were making the case for free speech under the Constitution- which covers all administrations and how citizens react to their leaders. If I still "blame" Bush and Presidents before for their inept abilities am I not praticing "free speech"? For that matter, if our current President speaks out against a former policy in another administration, is that not also a right which should be upheld? If I speak out am I babyish and if Obama speaks out how is he incompetent? On a side note, people involved in the war in Afghanastan say the General is doing a fine job? Do you agree? Is the war going well for America?  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #22)

Wow! I didn't know two thirds of Americans think that what he is doing is worth mocking. That's a HIGH number!!  (Jun 23, 2010 | post #12)
