    think? Whatever we were talking about, somehow you've come to the conclusion that only you should be able to vote in elections, not me. You actually think you should be able to make such a determination, just you, all by yourself. And based on some comments on a blog. That is pretty arrogant, you have to admit. No one here is saying that you shouldn't be entitled to vote. It's really kind of childish when you think about it.

    I'm in the I-fucking-love-this-guy wing of the Democratic Party!

      You:

      Me:

      Whatever we were talking about, somehow Obama has come to the conclusion that he can indefinitely detain anyone he chooses without a trial. He actually thinks he should be able to make such a determination, just him, all by himself. And based on no evidence or trial. That is pretty arrogant, you have to admit. It's really kind of childish when you think about it.

      The only difference? I have no authority to take away your vote.

        Psy-ops 101: Show up in diaries where there's going to be a lot of Obama contention, and constantly insight people with your undying love for "my president" and then when you have people all riled up, throw in a "my democratic president" just to remind them what party he's in.

        In reality he's trying to turn people off to the Administration and the democrats in whole.

        At least that's my thinking. Annoying little douche to boot.
