    And you're still using that dumb avatar. The Joker is clearly an anarchist. Which the the OPPOSITE of a socialist.

    It shows how truly ignorant you are.

    It's simple, Americans wanted fast results in a recession that will be felt for at least 3 years. No recovery=dissatisfied Americans. Add in the polarizing HealthCare issue, it isn't a surprise. Once a sign of recovery comes within a year or two, polls will bounce back most likely.

    For the billionth time, he isn't a socialist. What is so bad about socialism anyway?

    And hateful? That is the biggest lie you've repeated yet.

    Keep wailing and gnashing your teeth...It's almost becoming endearing. But your Gallup Poll link doesn't say anything about his approval rating being linked with him being considered a "hate-filled socialist".

    Looks like Obama false campaign promises are finally catching up to him. He is going to be a one term president.

    Unemployment will not hit 9% (or was it 8%)-- Already at 9.8% and still climbing
    The Economy will get better -- It has just started getting bad at a slower pace
    Show a stimulus bill down our throats -- Next to none of it has been spent and full of pork
    He will create jobs -- Economy still shedding jobs at 6 figures a month.
    Past a Health Care bill before Congress summer break -- Still have not pass one.
    he campaigned on change -- Washington still has not changed. Same Crooks in charged just different faces.

    Shall I go one on Obama false promises he has failed to deliver on.

    All in all what do you expect to happen when we have a long list of failed promises and in some ways lied to. The stimulus bill saying we need it yet not spent. Promised more jobs - created none.

    We'll see. There is still time for him to turn some things around. However, to do that he will need to get off the campaign and start doing something.

    I find it funny that you actually have the sack to call anyone hateful when you spout off the things you do.

    Just because someone makes statements that counter prevailing opinion not make them a so-called troll. Using that metric, I guess Grandi, MLK Jr ect... would also be defined as trolls.

    If you want to refute me, go ahead. However, to pigeon hole someone with the moniker of 'troll' is intellectual cowardliness.

    It isn't that you have a dissenting opinion, it's the way you express it.
    To elaborate, your words indicate that you are not interested in much more than pissing people non-republicans off. That, to me, defines a troll. And I hardly think you should compare your antagonistic internet shenanigans with the likes of Gandhi, MLK Jr., etc.

    Who is Grandi? Just curious.

    LOL @ Blue.

    Obama may be a one-term president and yes, he has time to turn things around but so far he's not living up to his well-written campaign speeches.

    So, some needed context. Also, for conservatives getting excited, a reality check:

    I will agree on fascist and liberal. He is in bed with Wall Street more than any other President I have seen. Don't take that 90% paycut as not being in bed with Wall Street, if you look at the other benefits most of these exces are not being hurt and those they want out will go.

    Besides, he is dumber than a box of rocks, he makes Bush look good. Worse, he is the most arrogant President since Nixon... and his staff is the worst ever.

    Fair points. But the Atlantic article also ignores the massive debt Obama has racked up, the plethora of unfulfilled campaign promises, etc. Rodimus Prime's list is worth considering when weighing the public opinion of Obama.
    Is it doomsday for Obama & co? No. But the numbers don't lie--the feel-good speeches and promises with little substance behind them are starting to wear thin. He wildly overpromised on the campaign trail, and the "give him more time" argument will only work for so long...he simply hasn't delivered (yet?) as advertised.

    Beyond that, his remarkably long list of ethically/politically compromised appointees to his staff isn't doing him any favors.

    [Disclaimer: I voted McCain, but wavered right up until election day...seriously. I almost voted for Obama, and seriously questioned whether I made the right choice...Thus far, I'm not regretting my decision.]

    In comparing yourself to MLK, are you saying that you are a leader of civil right or should take a bullet in the head?

    How soon they forget.

    If he was in bed with Wall Street there wouldn't be any paycut. Cutting someone's pay 90% is the opposite of being in bed with them :rolleyes:

    Do you think for yourself or just repeat what Limbaugh and Beck tell you to repeat?

    OK, let's address these accusations:

    True. Although the rate of increase is slowing. Let's look at the trend:


    Unmistakably downwards. It will get to a point soon where jobs are being created, probably sometime in the spring. Remember, we were being told not so long ago that the Dow tanking was Obama's fault, and yet, funnily enough, that line of criticism is no longer relevant. The Dow is just one of many leading indicators. Speaking of which:

    Sorry, but no reasonable person expects the largest recession since the 1930s to turn on a dime. But regardless, you're wrong:

    Almost 40% has spent in 2009, the bulk of it will come next year. The use of the word 'pork' is a clear sign of someone who doesn't understand what the whole point of stimulus spending is for.

    We've dealt with this.

    This historic bill is only weeks away from being completed. No president in living memory has got to this point so far. Obstructionism in the House is only something a President can work around, not barge through.

    Sorry, is this advocating a revolution or coup? The change that Obama campaigned on was a change of policy and method. Policy takes time to craft and test, and then see the results thereof. The Executive branch is just one arm of government. Sometimes, judging by the weight that you place solely on the president, I think that some Americans would be happier living under a dictatorship or monarchy.

    Hmm. President of Harvard Law Review and someone who taught constitutional law is dumber than a box of rocks. Takes on two of the largest political figures in American politics at national level and cleans the floor with them. Nice try.

    I enjoy seeing partisans not engaging with reality. Makes their bewilderment at coming disappointments all the more amusing.

    Someone would think you're just making things up. I know it's cathartic to express yourself like this, but ask yourself this, outside the wingerverse, is it persuasive? Or even factual?

    It's really important to remind people that:

    So, in the light of that...

    ...sounds fairly reasonable.
