    You can see it in his eyes
    He's telling dirty lies

      Did you even read my post?  

      Imagine Palin and old boy McCain anywhere close to "the button" and you know half the world would be on fire now.

      People here love to scream that there's no difference between Obama and Republicans but that bullshit reeks from a mile away.

        A lot of people thought Obama would be another FDR, but that hasn't happened. In fact he, like Bill Clinton, is the antithesis of FDR.

        If you look at his actions, he' a lot more like George H.W. Bush than FDR or LBJ.

        Things would deffinitely been different with McCain as President. Because Wall St backed Obama, I think the Bail-Out of Wall Street wouldn't have happened the way it did. I think Main Street would have gotten much more attention. Just because McCain's a Republican doesn't mean he's Bat-Shit-Crazy like many of his brethren.

        BTW I'd prefer a real Progressive as President, but not many Democrats fit that description any more.

          He just accused illegal immigrants of starting wildfires.

          He went from being one of the most moderate republicans to one of the most conservative in the last few years.

          Wall Street owns both parties so of course the bailout would have happened.  You just wouldn't have gotten the Frank-Dodd bill (meager as it was) out of it if McCain won.

          Of course I prefer Obama to be more progressive (I think he personally is) but he can't snap his fingers and make a public option appear when it wasn't there.

          He can't make the GOP become somewhat sane and reasonable.

        •  The antithesis of FDR would be Hoover. (0+ / 0-)

          Clinton was no Hoover (no intern jokes, please)

    •  Repubs hate his guts, almost as much as the (0+ / 0-)

      "true progressives" do.
