    [Disclaimer: I do not in any way support GBTV, but I am prepared to 'take what resonates and leave the rest' to fight Obama's propaganda campaign]

    In what manner is a President a good one if he enables the biggest and longest period of unemployment since the great depression?

    On what basis should a President be considered moral if he signs a bill which effectively destroys due process, allowing the assassination of citizens?

    Why is it that a President can stay in power despite violating key promises, when in any other mutual contract, he would be fired?

    How is it that someone can be become President who has not provided proof of his nationality and citizenship?

    How is it that that President has not been impeached for violating that country's constitution on a number of occasions?

    How is it that millions of people can support a man who is responsible for millions of deaths on foreign lands?

    There are too many questions, and not enough answers to vote for this man. If you had taken 2 minutes of open-minded research you would gasp at the level of corruption in the Obama administration. The fact is that Obama is as much of a Wall Street puppet as Romney and Santorum are.

      Excuse me for wanting to influence American voters - there seems to be a very important election coming up if you didn't notice. You know, one that elects 'the leader of the free world'?

        Leader of the free world! He's not even leader of a free America!

    Travel back a little further, Innersmith. Then ask the same questions.

      Bush can't be re-elected, though I agree.

      The argument "well, he did it first" is a poor and empty argument.

    Anytime I hear Real from an anti-Obama person: I shut off.

    I know it's 100% different than my Real. Our truths don't mesh.

    My gurl Rosanne is mounting a big fear push now too. Citing Alex Jones......

    You all are too late for that stuff! You have to dig deeper, and See beyond  the old paradigm.

      +1.

      Sometimes the clues lie in what is not said, but is suggested.

      On the other hand, you could debate points presented.

    "This could be a good time!

    There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.

    Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. See who is in there with you and celebrate."

        You have bought the right-wing--hook, line and sinker.

          Actually there's an extremely strong left-wing contingent who are waking up to this as well.

            Left wing woke up with Bush and were told to support the president in a time of war, Democrats gave Bush the power to invade Iraq, and 9/11 could not be an inside job in a million years.

            Forgive me if I give the right no credibilty now, and if don't believe, like some on the left-- that Obama is just like Bush.

            Too much info and disinfo and lies and distortions and just plain racist crap.

            "We are the ones we've been waiting for", tells me all I need to know.

              Are you referring to the GBTV bit at the end? Yeah, that's dumb, but you have to take the information as it comes, no matter where it comes from. I don't give the mainstream left or right any credibility. The right does get ridiculous, but not all of their issues with Obama is misplaced. It's not racist to criticise Obama, it's just common sense. The left are often completely at sea when it comes to politics and economics, but are generally excellent at exposing corporate corruption. There are good and bad things to take from both sides, but on the whole we need to get out of this stupid paradigm because it means nothing - Obama is Bush 2.0, 9/11 was an inside job and both parties are doing their absolute hardest to destroy the basic rights of every human being. It's time to let go of whatever ideal you were looking for from Obama in 08 LMC! Everything will be fine but you need to let go!

                You'll just have to accept that I don't think like you. Sorry--that's the way it is.

                  Well I've learned not to write anyone off - I kinda liked Obama back in the day.

                    Oh hell. If Obama ran the country one-tenth as good as he gave speeches or campaigned I'd be wetting my pants with unbridled ecstasy. I was actually kind of excited when he got elected.

                    ...And then my life became more difficult in tangible financial ways, and I could draw direct cause-and-effect lines between Washington and my troubles. Both sides of Washington to a certain extent, but a lot more threads run to donkeys than elephants. I've been burned. Never again.
