    Ir doesn't matter if they lie, it's just more smearing. Just say it and people will believe it.

    Yes. I think it is more than fair to point out when people blatantly lie in the media. It's very important to talk about things like this. They should be held accountable and talked about as much as possible.

    So why not just make one mega thread about how Fox is evil rather than have a thread a day.

    Oh now, wait a minute.

    He asks if it's time for Obama to step up, or maybe step aside.

    You gotta admit that for Sean Inanity and FAUX News that's pretty damn "Fair and Balanced". ;)

    Didn't see it. It seems like a silly thing to say. I mean, many of us would LIKE to see BHO step aside, but he'd never do that...not in a million years.

    He's only asking if right wingers think he should step aside (of course they would, they wanted him out before he took office and even started the anti-Obama Tea Party)

    . . . but why should he step aside? Obama is doing a better job than Bush, and Bush didn't step aside.

    No clue. Doesn't matter to me, though. That was then, this is now.

    Fox is too evil to be confined to one thread. ;)

    Very few. Most of us wanted to see him impeached.

    That's ok--his reaction is heartfelt in spite of the facts. That's what makes having an debate, much less a meaningful political conversation, all but impossible in this country.

    I think that's a different issue. Hannity appears to be asking Obama to step aside for reasons that are based on falsehoods.

    Asking Obama to step down because of something he actually did is a reasonable proposition, but Hannity is being disingenuous.

    How exactly is he doing a better job than Bush besides not being a blundering dumb **** when he gives a speech? Still in Iraq, check, still in afghan, check, gays still treated as second class citizens, check. Patriot act reaffirmed, check.

    Gee- let's see. First of all, there has been no 9/11, which happened in part because the Bush administration ignored the intel left to them by Clinton...

    ...and that's just to start.

    Let's see what else. Oh, I know- no assaults on gay people, even though there's not much help either. At least Obama isn't coming after us with guns a'blazin'. And at least we got hospital visitation rights.

    Hmm... what else? Oh! Health care reform, as crappy as it is, is far more than what Bush did, which was NOTHING.

    And let's not forget foreign relations. Our allies seem to like us a little better these days.

    Oh, I know- I'm being silly. None of these things are better than Bush.:rolleyes:

    You do realize that not everyone shares your opinion on that, right? That there are many people that think that Obama's election is one of the most dangerous political events in the last 100 years? Those people tend to watch Fox news and it kind of looks like they represent about 1/2 of the country.

    Not that I'm one of them, of course. Just sayin'



    Actually, most of those allies snicker at him behind his back...for things like this.

    Besides his call for him to step aside, was everything he said was true?

    In addition to what Lee said (especially what Obama didn't do), I'll add a few more:

    • Fixing the financial mess created by Bush/Cheney.
    • Working toward including environmental and labor standards in trade agreements, instead of the opposite as did Bush/Cheney.
    • He's trying to eliminate special tax breaks for oil and gas companies, instead of increasing them as did Bush/Cheney.
    • Established a credit card bill of rights.
    • Increased the Veterans Administration budget to recruit and retain more mental health professionals.
    • Required health insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions.
    • Closed the "doughnut hole" in Medicare Part D prescription drug plan.
    • Working to repeal the Bush tax cuts for higher incomes
    • Expanded loan program for small business.

    We've been really lucky, we've dodged 2 bombers in the last few months by sheer luck.

    DADT hasn't been repealed yet and is likely to be pushed into his second term if ever. This would be a simple act and yet he has done nothing about it.

    We haven't really seen yet if this bad bill is better than the status quo, I have a sneaking feeling it is going to make the system worse and also force everyone into corporate pockets.

    This may be the only one I agree with as far as our allies are concerned. Although it falls somewhat in the "not a bumbling idiot" category. Obama can give a speech which helps a lot with the way people view Americans.
