Just pointing out your self contradictory posts. For many Americans, the biggest underlying problem with politics this year is that conservatives like you have refused to show an ounce of humility in the wake of their spectacular failures and electoral humiliations.

You try to ignore the fact that conservative officials ran the entire federal government in the Bush/Cheney era, and their efforts were disastrous. Everything they touched burned to the ground. They failed on the economy. They failed on the budget. They failed on foreign policy. They failed on constitutional policy. They failed on environmental policy. They failed on health care, national security, education, and infrastructure. The very idea of Republican governing was a fiasco of historic proportions — their ideas and philosophy are thoroughly discredited. Prove they did anything wrong? Show us something they didn’t completely screw up.

And have they been deterred in the least in the face of humiliating failure? No, they are now acting as ridiculous as possible. They simply pretended that they hadn’t been discredited, and immediately launched a scorched-earth campaign to destroy the new governing majority. There has been no re-evaluation of failed policies, no reflection on failed leaders, no desire to move away from the far-right cliff, and no effort to reestablish some sense of policy credibility. Talk about having nothing at all… where is that “Alternative Health Plan” John Boehner was “putting the finishing touches on” last month? Any clue?

He could argue that we would function the same way that,s possible, but what is SIGNIFICANTLY different is that independents do not operate with in these perimeters so that is Obamas biggest problem.Many of the independents have adequate insurance and might have sympathy with the uninsured, but they are not prepared to step into the unknown like getplaning with the impact of all the mounting trillions of dept hanging over their heads.

It is the worst start of the last 10 presidents and getting worse. There is nothing good that will come of anything on his agenda. He was elected with only 52 percent of the vote, but now at least 52 percent would not vote for him again if given the chance. People are rapidly running for cover because of the mistake they made voting against something and not for something. Now they are finding out what damage this administration plans to force on us.

As for the last administration, you have yet to prove they did anything wrong. This administration can’t prove anything and any story they and the media create dies in a few days. Why? Because you all have nothing…nothing at all.

My only point about the GWOT, is that we are here to talk about it as free people today. We were safe for 8 years. During the campaign, Mr. Obama railed against Iraq and said Afghanistan is where the true action is. Well, if you have been reading or watching the news. He is managing Afghanistan horribly. He doesn’t know what to do. His generals are screaming for more troops, but he is being timid and not sending any. He is losing and losing badly. So much for his tough talk during the campaign.

Then there is Iran. He said he wanted to sit down for a beer (artistic license about the beer) with the Iranian president, but he and his Ayatollahs don’t want anything to do with his “give peace a chance” BS. Same with Cuba, same with Venezuela. They look at America as patsies since he came into office. Yeah, he is showing them…he sure is…NOT!

If you think the last 8 years were bad (they weren’t…Bush had a higher approval rating at this same point in his first term…), then you haven’t seen anything yet. Thank God, Van Jones is gone…That is only the beginning.

When you spend months bashing the President, and defending everything the previous administration did, regardless of the outcome, and then post something like “Only fools make this into a partisan battle”, you are demonstrating textbook conservative hypocrisy in its purest form.

You are correct. I am not a democrat, never have been, never will be. My viewpoint is conservative. Always has been, always will be. I am not a pretender.

With that said, the agenda this administration has in store for America is not a liberal or conservative issue. It is about our freedom and way of life. What they have in store, what Van Jones, had in store (Rememember Obama picked him…) and Obama has in store for America is not good for any of us, even you. You don’t want what they have in store for you. It isn’t good.

So, I don’t understand what your point was. My point was that this issue is not about democrats and republicans. It is about our freedom and survival as a nation. This is the worst administration we have ever had. They are trying to ram their agenda through before we find out we’ve been had…

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, guess what? It’s a Republican duck. Keep quacking, TC.

Well, that isn’t the case when it comes to Van Jones. He was a major player in the Obama administration, as are all the CZARS. Until now, they were out of view creating a future for socialist future for us. The administration and its minions, hoped we wouldn’t notice. But we do notice and good riddance to Van Jones and his inflammatory, racist, socialist/communist ideology. All you have to do is listen to his diatribes against everything American and free. He is a poison to a free people.

Only fools make this into a partisan battle…

A great win for the country. Now let’s watch closely to who fills the position for I am sure Obama will not terminate the position as he should. We have to watch our presidents and officials very very closely and strive to understand, respect and protect the wisdom of our founding fathers as well as the fundamental laws and ideas of our Constitution and Declaration of Independence.
