    Reply without including the "there are things that I don't like" qualifier? Every time you compliment the president you just have to smack him on the back of the head.

      If there is no accountability for those who authorized torture, we can no longer say that we are a nation of laws, not men.

      ...whose self-esteem we're trying to build, so no, we don't have to avoid criticizing him just because you don't want to be reminded that he's not perfect.

      After a year of the sux/rox battles on this site, I have observed that very few feel free to just say regarding any issue or moment in time,  "Way to go, Mr. President!" With no caveat, no mitigating statement that without, God forbid, any of us should be seen as having a "messiah" thing for this president. Or a Kool-aide thing, or whatever.  

      Some truely don't believe the president ever deserves a "way to go!"  Fine.  Others, many others here, I know, do.  But it is absolutely true that few feel free to go with that. I find myself falling into the trap, for fear someone is not going to understand that just because I REALLY like what the president is doing regarding something on a particular day, doesn't mean I don't get he's not perfect.

      SIGH.  So I'm going for it.  WAY TO GO, MR. PRESIDENT.  Hold the GOP to their word, and their feet to the fire.  Take it right into the fall, right to that precipice before the election.

      And yes, it's brilliant that he's making himself clear RIGHT NOW.  Plenty of time for the GOP to posture and BS about this, and Romney too.  

      Fact is, the GOP made an agreement.  Period.  Now, they're going to have to take up the nation's time to re-legislate that agreement.  Let's see how that works out.

      Obama is a war criminal just as bad as Bush, and has supported even worse erosion of our civil rights.  Some of us refuse to support the lessor of two evils just because he is better in some areas, or belongs to our party.  

      As long as he refuses to prosecute the Bush Regime for its crimes against humanity, he is a willing accessory after the fact to all their crimes.  When you add in the new crimes he has committed, and which our military, intelligence, and para-military police commit under his watch, he is worse then Bush.  

      This is ignoring his domestic corruption, his willingness to assist the banksters in robbing us blind.  This man has stolen from us all, and given the money to the richest amongst us.  The fact that anyone who is not a wealthy republican still supports him disgusts me.

      At least Romney is open about his indifference to the plight of the working American.

      Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.
