      When a front-page poster fisks a politician, it's "light-hearted humor." But when someone reads the light-hearted humor and points out the obvious flaws in the Obama Agenda, that person is a "Troll".

      "Talking Point" means "When someone says something that isn't strictly along the lines of what most of us think, i.e. a dissenting point of view."

      Here's another "talking point" for you.Bush was a terrible President.

      And one more: Obama is doing no better than Bush. I invite you to point to actions, not words, that prove otherwise.

        If Obama does nothing between now and November '12 except play Bejeweled and, I dunno, APPOINT JUDGES, he's done more for the country than Bush ever did.

        Obama is doing no better than Bush?

        You want actions?

        Bush appointed John Roberts and Sam Alito to the Supreme Court.  Two justices who've never seen a police power they didn't like and who've never seen a limit on corporate control they did like.

        That little court case a couple of weeks ago made damned sure that the "Bush Agenda" or the "Obama Agenda" or "Whoever's Next Agenda" doesn't mean a fucking thing if the Congress is already bought and paid for by Monsanto, ExxonMobil, the Saudi royal family, and so on.

        I'm truly sorry you didn't get your pony, but if you truly believe Obama is doing no better than Bush, then there's nothing in the world I could tell you to convince you otherwise.

          I wrote to my congressman and told him exactly the same thing. I said he had my permission to play spider solitaire for the rest of his term.

          Sadly, I don't think he'll listen.

          The actions I asked for were Obama's actions, not Bush's. I've already stated that Bush was a bad president. You won't get an argument from me about that.

          Obama has been the President for a year, and his agenda, despite the rhetoric, looks a lot like President Bush's, which I addressed in my first post.
