    or do you just enjoy bashing him?  If so, it was a pretty weak, sad jab.  Sounds to me  that you were grasping for straws.

      around here. And ironically, this excessive effort and energy expended in those diaries/articles makes the President seem stronger. Because people are so obsessed with tearing him down that they are becoming increasingly juvenile, hyperbolic and desperate.

        if we have been invated by the REPUGS.  Just a thought.

          Obama is getting slammed on this site because he's making some conservative, even rightwing decisions/actions. He's being slammed for his human/civil rights abuses, and his protection from prosecution of Bush and the other war criminals.

          Yep... exactly what Repugs would criticize him for.

          That's definitely the best way you can convince people you're not reactionary Obamabots who don't realize Campaign 08 is over and are totally able to deal with factual, principled criticism of your hero.

        Think those of us who aran't on the Kool-Aid need to grasp at straws to be critical of President Obama. I guess his repeated capitations to the health care industry, Wall-Street and big business, Congressional Republicans, his Afghan war strategy (which appears to consist of someone giving the Pentagon a copy of Catch 22 and telling them "make it as close to this as possible.") and his disastrous stance on civil liberties aran't enough for us: we need to grasp at straws too. Well, maybe some people do, but I'll stick with the real issues where Obama has fallen short, there's sure no shortage of them.
