Expecting someone to be a good president because of race is as idiotic as the people who voted for Bush "cos he's a regular guy just like me!" Being black, Protestant, or a NASCAR fan bears absolutely no relevance on how competently you can run a country (or in the case of the US, work with your other branches of government to progress--because the other mistake that the simple minds who vote according to superficial personal identifiers is, that they forget the president doesn't make all the decisions by himself), and if you're disappointed in a president for that reason alone--"he's black and didn't magically make the country perfect in his first term wtf he was supposed to fix everything!"--you need to reevaluate your priorities and general understanding of the world.

Wow...

You made cheap generalizations(or as you call them "cheap shots") about four posters, I was just turning it around on you. I'm sorry you missed that.

I said "so?' as in, "so what's your point?" Your post was a passive-aggressive attempt to insult others. As BVS said, that was the cheap shot in this discussion.

I guess so. Or what game were you referring to?

Bye, FYM! Keep throwing shit to see what sticks. I know I won´t be missed

The Australian Right thinks the American Right are fucking insane. Particularly when it comes to gin control.

I'm amused as i think back at the Bush haters and how evil they genuinely thought he was. Including Obama. Then the unexperienced Chicago politician who bought his home with concicted felon Tony Rezco gets elected. Obama is from the same city and state as crooked Mayor Daley and convicted Governor Rod Blagojevich.
Almost every promise Obama made to get elected was a lie except for obama care. He kept most of Bush's policies. Oh he got rid of waterboarding thats right. Not the idiots that hated Bush have to stick up for Obama.
Drones, wiretaps, IRS. Failed economy. Failed foreign policy led by Hillary Clinton.. probably the worst Secretary of State i can remember. They were against the Arab spring. Syria was a joke. High gas prices throughout his whole term. High unemployment. Massive debt. Interest rates held too low for too long. Companies wont hire full time employees because of obama care. Haven't had a budget in i dont know how long. Climate change means the earth is not getting warmer.
I swear that I'm really starting to believe that Liberalism truely is a mental condition. Most people i know who are Liberal are not too bright.

Stellar contribution. Helpful hint: use proper grammar and spelling when insulting the intelligence of others.

But can they string together a properly constructed sentence and/ or complete thought?

The Bush haters were confusing Bush, a patsy (albeit a patsy who had well and truly reached his majority), with Cheney, a genuine force for (probably un-self-reflective) evil.

Wait, who's Tony Rezco? That's it, I used to be a liberal but 9/11.

Oh Diemen and BVS. So sorry that grammar is an issue with you. After all i wrote, you picked on my grammar. Wow. Thanks for proving my point. Liberalism is alive and well in the psychological field. Don't attack my facts. Attack my grammar. Maybe after you both grow up and get a real job you can move out of mom's basement and get some real life experience. Maybe even some psychological help.

You didn't have any facts.

The fact that you need to resort to personal attacks like this, speaks volumes about you.

But following your brand of logic (and I use that term loosely), liberalism is a mental condition alive and well in the "psychological field" (not sure what that means, was the field of psychology what you were going for?). So if liberals are dumb jokes of people, why are you instructing bvs and diemen to go seek their help? Clearly stupid hacks can't help people. But you're recommending they do just that. So which is it? Make up your mind.

Grow up, get a job, move out of mom's basement...wow, you should take those scathingly witty and original comments, and slap a patent on them! Or take them back over to the general chat in your mmo of choice. What? You say you don't play online video games? Could have fooled me, you write just like all the other trolls there.

As for your facts, all I see are a lot of declarative opinions (plus the worn-out assumption that people who disliked the Bush administration think Obama is the greatest president ever. I'd hate to shatter your black and white world view, but that's not true either) with virtually no explanations to back them. But people with limited understanding of grammar rarely possess the firmest vocabulary. I've already prattled on for too long, though. Perhaps someone else should explain the opposing definitions of fact vs opinion.
