This guy has lies from his choices, views, people in his cabinet who many are corrupt and have resigned already, his history with a thousand question marks....please JPZ Bush was bad after 8 years...Nixon lied and got caught...Obama is lieing more than anyone and is flying high in the sky thinking no one can spot him on the radar...just listen to his riduclous promises and honestly tell me that no politician lies! LOL that is an incredible joke my friend.
Paul, I should have been a bit clearer. I mentioned you were a born-again Christian, and a conservative ideologist, because you have labeled yourself as such. Because of this, your thinking, and that of those who try to obtain your patronage of their services, will be in conflict with those who believe in the other side's ideology.
I think this is a fair assessment. If you agree, then please tell me why you believe your opinion to be fair and balanced? You, after all, have never been for Obama, have admittedly been a "birther," etc.
As for Jimmy Carter, you're a conservative, so I get why you don't like him. I like him because he asked Americans to care about one another, to be moral, to live a life of service. In addition, he ended the embargo on Cuba, and he pulled all aid to the various dictatorships the U.S. had propped up, among other actions.
Below, I pasted a poll for you to look at. It shows what people think about Carter. He never did what was politically advantageous, he was soft-spoken, kind and principled. He was what I thought Obama might have been. Obama is the better speaker, he is genuine, but he lacks the courage to do what he believes in.

Paul: I challenge you to go watch Capitalism a Love Story. Go rent it or whatever. It is a Michael Moore film. Watch that and then say this stuff. Please. If you do not do this I will never respect your political opinions. Trust me, I've watched plenty of Glen Feck shows. Know your opponent. Maybe he isn't your opponent. Find out. Watch Capitalism a love story.
What's your opinion on the fact that politicians were only given 72 hours to read what was in these massive bills before they were passed? And most of the democrats that voted for them did not even read the bills they just voted for it because Obama is part of their party and they think whatever he does is right, regardless of all the pork spending put in the bills which consists of billions on top of billions.....what's your view on this?
You have to concerned about this topic at least.
If any other president appointed his cabinet members and had a shady history like Obama, I guarantee the news would still be all over it. His popularity as the first black president, being a great speaker, and being the first democratic president since Clinton has given him a huge advantage and is the reason why he has not taken so much heat yet. He also had the media on his side since day 1 or else he would be exposed for many things like his shady history, no birth certificate, statements like giving Americans 95% tax cuts which we all knew wold never happen but people voted for him because of these statements!
So do I think he is a lier? Yes, because he made bold statements that he knew would never come true just to get in office, and on some of these topics he has switched completely to the goals he had during his campaign race.
I'm obviously concerned, but Democrats should be more concerned.
I'll give you this. I hate his cabinet. geithner is a criminal just like every treasury secretary we have had since Carter's time or maybe fore that. No person who was a wall street guy should be allowed in political office. WAY too much bias in there... That is part of what Moore's new movie is about. He actually criticizes Geithner for a good amount of time.
There is a good reason why most Christians view God as an elephant instead of a donkey: Because most conservatives believe that life begins at the moment of conception while many liberals believe that the unborn are fetal tissues that don't possess a soul.
I don't mean to open up a can of worms on an anti Obama thread, but why can't people look at politics objectively instead of being subjected to the political views that their minister or priest feeds to them from the pulpit?
Everything you have posted in this thread has been a full fledged talking point. You obviously do not grasp politics as a whole, and like most republicans have chosen to be told what to think/say rather than to figure things out for yourself.
Not everything you see/hear is true. A video with small seconds of sound bytes doesn't prove that Obama is the biggest liar in presidential history. You sounds very uninformed, yet of course have this pretend outrage about something that you can't even comprehend.
You're quotes about jamming things down peoples throats, or claiming the health care bill was too long to read make you sound like a puppet. The way bills are written make them seem long, when it actuality it was no longer than your typical novel at a couple hundred pages. Nobody is trying to jam something down anybody's throat. We have a president who is trying to make good on his presidential promise to bring healthcare reform. So that millions of people can get coverage who otherwise would go bankrupt paying for such a thing. The people who don't want it, are people like yourself who have no idea what the bill will accomplish. They just know it's bad. And how? Cause Meghan Kelly, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh tell them that every single day!
Name some specific things you have a problem with Obama doing, and I will respond to them point by point. There are a lot of things I disagree with Obama for doing....but my guess is yours will be the ones you were told to believe, and things are are false. He's been in office barely over a year...and you're claiming he's lied about stuff he said he'd do, that he hasn't yet, yet claiming he's jamming things down our throats. It's just whatever is convenient for you isn't it? Do you realize how limited the power is that the President truly possesses? The things in your 7 lies in 2 minutes things...at least 5-6 of those things were not even close to lies. And the other 1 or 2 things were just typical political statements.
First off you obviously sound like you did not even follow the progression of these bills being passed....this was obviously jammed down our throats....did you see the votes? Barely any republicans if any voted for it and almost all of the democrats voted for it...clearly a one sided show in Washington. AND something you should realize Combs, these bills are not an average novel that you can read in a few days these bills ranged from roughly 600 to over 1000 pages long, how do you expect anyone to argue against a bill when they have only 72 hours to read that much information???What are you talking about...these bills were like encyclopedias full of information and this was obviously done in this fashion so no one could pick apart the bill and expose any weaknesses or pork spending in it...if that is not evidence of something being forced upon then I dont know what is. Do some research even an average Joe like me knows this stuff. I'm not a political analyse but I won't be fooled by some savvy speaker in Washington who has the media on his side from Day 1 and has question marks all over the place. Stop being close minded.
You want some points?
Okay- He promised that 95% of Americans would receive tax cuts.
-He promised to remove troops from the Iraqi War...not only did he not do that but he sent 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, even if it was necessary, he lied to the american people about his plans and no democrat would have voted for him if he said that he would add troops.
-He promised and stressed bi-partisanship in his administration and he has shown an agenda of the exact opposite
-He promised to not pork spend, wasteful spending, and have lobbyist in his administration...this is all false in his bills alone there is billions of dollars in wasteful spending
-His history is shady...apparently he grew up in a Muslim school, found Christ somewhere along the line but feels that Jesus's miracles like the Sermon on the Mount are radical, his religious views are contradictory but he still stands that he is a Christian. His birth certificate is still non existent, how can someone be president with no birth certificate made to the public? And why is he hiding it???
-His history of being a "community organizer" had him associated with Bill Aires(weatherman group that had numerous bombings) and the like, Obama was recommended and backed up by ACORN, the most corrupt voter registration organization this country has seen and Obama denies being tied with them
-Obama has been backed up by people with a radical background that included black panthers, socialists, a few communists supporters, just obvious radical people that have views that are completely opposite of the constitution and our way of life...so seeing Obama change this country is not surprising me.

I never understood how many Chritians voted for a guy like George Bush because he said that he was pro-life but these same people never had much to say about the executions that Bush was responsible for when he was govenor of Texas and the troops that died in Iraq while Bush was president.If a politician is going to claim that he is cares about the living in order to gain voters then he needs to practice what he preaches.
Basically if your a politician that runs this country, like Obama, and you don't vote pro-life then it is true to the pro-life supporter that you are only helping in the killing of babies so there is only two extremes to the issue.
you realize that politics is big business. Campaigns cost money...Corporations shell out money....your biggest contribitors aren't just giving away money for tax benefits.
The best candidate was the 3rd party candidate. But Americans stupidly usually look at Democrat Republican thing. When you have preconceived notions like
Democrats are for
- Poor People
- Young People
Republicans are for
- Heartless bastards
- Religious people
Which is as far as some voters go....this is what happens. The world is run by corporations that much has been proven throughout time.
