Lemme run a few things past you. Obama had a free ride with the press, still does. As a matter of fact after he won a talking head even said "We need to find out who he is, we don`t really know". McCain never took the gloves off, he was much harder on Bush in 2000 and with his 08 primary opponents. So when you say O`s campaign was brilliant, look at the `royal straight flush` hand he was dealt; Bush approval at 30%, whole country sick of Repubs, running against a tired cranky oldman that looked his age. I could go on but Jesus Christ, it`s 1am. For O`s reelection the bloom is definitely off the rose. Everyone "proved" they`re not racist by once voting for the black guy. He didn`t end the war like he promised or at least that`s what everyone thought he said. Unemployment sucks big time. National debt squarely in unmanageable territory. I just don`t see him having the stars line up once more in a millenium. I would even wager he may have a primary challenger.
Why do you equate community activisim with socialism? And why the nazi references to such activities and in reference to the president? You sure have a thing for nazi crapola. Must go with your party of beliefs eh? I swear you are a skin head or a KKK reject.
Wasn't it you who just a couple of weeks ago was going on about how you helped out a Habitat for Humanity housing project in Des Moines? Sounds like a community activity to me. Oh right, it is OK for you to be an activist, just if a lib shows up than it is socialism or if the president takes part it is nazi propaganda. I think you need to quit self medicating milly.
I agree with your assumption. It is unlikely he will get returned again. There is so much Fox induced opposition to him, he cannot withstand it for another two years. The only chance he has is the black vote but they are not noted for their energetic pursuits of electoral matters and can never be relied upon.
Actually, .... I would consider myself a Constitutional Activist.
Those who follow the dictates of Karl Marx, are not in my community of acquaintances.
kraft-t: "My heart belonged to Hillary and still does."
Biden was your choice, after he dropped out, you switched to Hillary, after Obama chose Biden for VP, you supported Obama (or at least you quit bashing him).
Maybe you didn't vote for him, but you supported him.
"I remind you, he is the president, YOU ARE NOT. That should tell you who is the smarter."
I'm curious Gough if you and others felt that way when that dumb, simple minded Bush was twice elected POTUS? By the way I don't recall that McCain ever shuffled around parliament. I think our queen would never allow him to enter parliament but would only allow him shuffle around her castle with her court jesters.
You say you don't believe Obama will win a second term because FOX has induced so much opposition to him. Just how did that dummy Bush win a second term when MSNBC and many others in the media induced so much opposition to him?
Don, it surprises me that you of all people would say you don't think the media had much to do with helping Obama get elected. Did you ever see the SNL skit during the election where Hillary would be asked very tough probing questions by members of the media at a debate but when it came to Obama they would grovel before him and only ask easy softball questions or heap praise upon him. While it may have been parody there was a lot of truth to the skit.
We will never know for sure just how much but I think Obama's race helped him win more then most folks realize and not just with black voters. Many folks including myself like the idea of having our first black president to show just how much we have evolved and how enlightened we have become.
