    The socialist-secularist-sophist bent of the Obama presidency has become more evident as his presidency continues to march in the direction of his oft repeated mantra of "fundamentally transforming America" . His acolytes who hold sway in the main stream media has become so enamored of his  style of leadership that they would be more than happy to put thier blinders on, and remain incognizant of the precipice that his policies have pushed America into... an alien world of total government intrusion into our lives. "1984"... finally you have arrived.

      Well, what a post. I could have sworn it was from David Limbaugh.

        Is he Rush Limbaugh's evil twin?

          not a twin, but still a brother of Rush.

          And yes Obama is a sophist. I mean that in a positive way.

    I am confused. Obama ended the Crusade in Iraq, and is talking of ending the Crusade in Afghanistan.

    How does that make him a tyrant?

      You're not confused. People out there who can't find anything else on TV except Fox News, or anything else on the radio except Limbaugh are the ones that are confused.

        It is the unconscionable conceit of Obama's ardent fans and supporters in thinking and bloviating the notion that those who are on the other side of Obama's divide, are incapable of independent ideas  and coherent conclusions about his presidency. Contrary to what  you are saying in your post, people who do not share your views are neither  easily swayed by Rush  Limbaugh and his fellow ranters on radio  nor biased by Sean Hannity and his fellow raconteurs on Fox News.

          Maybe you should take a few steps back and notice how much sense the "lefty liberal demagogues" tend to make all on their own, without even Obama's socialist mind control tactics to guide them.

            The mainstream left's ideology is immoral and nonsensical with and without Obama.

              Agreed.  Obama has furthered it, though, from his position of power.

    Has Obama done more for the banks and the military industrial complex or for you?
