How nice to see you're as familiar with the word's meaning as with its spelling.

The fact that the guy is prioritizing the economy and restoring our standing in the world hardly puts him in the company of Mussolini & Hitler. If anything, the fact that the wingnuts on each side can't decide whether he's a "Bush Lite fascist" or the socialist second coming of Karl Marx stands him in pretty good stead among reasonable people.

You Obama girls get so testy sometimes, perhaps you should join the teabaggers?
If you consider the continuation of Bush policies "putting all his effort into the economy" perhaps you should be looking harder at the change you voted for? Basically he gave our taxpayer money to the banks to lend back to us at interest. Nice work if you can get it huh? His withdrawl from Iraq is pretty much on the same timeline established by Bush before he left office. He is surging our troops in Afganistan the quagmire of all quagmires. And on the very things he should have NO trouble as a constitutional expert reversing the illegal wirtapping, the habeaus corpus, and posse comatatus edicts of Bush he is dragging his feet. If wanting our long estabilished constitutional rights classifies me as a lefty wingnut you are welcome to your self satisfied center. I guess the change you want pretty much resides in the remote for your TV set.

No own a tele, and the teabaggers, as you know, share your disdain for Obama. Btw, if he's simply continuing Bush policies, why are they all freaking out? And do you think closing Guantanamo really is a Bush-Lite policy? Domestically, he's about to put a lot of effort and capital into healthcare reform - another thing sought by most Americans and unaddressed by Bush. His climate policy and manner of addressing the rest of the world are certainly a fuckload more evolved than his predecessor's.

I realize it probably feels way righteous to fancy yourself as uniquely equipped - due to your massive cerebral firepower - to cut through the "corporate media brainwashing" that is surely the cause of anyone having an opinion different from yours. And I appreciate your pity on us sheep being led around by our remote controls like intellectual marionettes, and THANK GOD that you - the clever vanguard with the courage and deep understanding to properly deconstruct our collective hoodwinking at the hands of Obama/The Trilateral Commission/Elders of Zion.

And while I realize he's (pick one) "attempting to seize the firearms of patriots and turn us into a socialist state" or "continuing the Bush doctrine of rimming the corporations and CIA," I kinda dig the dude. Despite your and Sean Hannity's best efforts to make the rest of us buffoons see the light.

I agree that his climate policy is a whole lot better.

The healthcare thing I will believe when I see it happen. That's a big hill for him to have to climb. The insurance and pharm lobbies are lining the pockets of democrats as well as republicans in congress.

As far as Guantanamo goes, he hasn't really shut it down, he just moved the operation to Afghanistan, which is really just another continuation of Bush policy.
