    First it was all about the Iraq War..... Billary and Barrah arguing and lowballing each other that they'd have EVERYONE out within months of the Middle East. Then Barrah got his lesson.

    Then it was closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay (let's be clear, the military base at Guantamano AKA Gitmo and the prison are not one the same).

    Then it was about the economy.

    Now it seems healthcare has been 20 years in the making, and the most PARAMOUNT decision of our lifetime.

    Pick a fucking lane, Danica.


    But, since mainstream media (aka liberal media won't report on this , ... like they avoided ACORN like the plague)... I do recall ol' Barrah uppping the troops in Afghanistan... and that not going well. Just as you couldn't find body counts on any/every liberal blog after late 2007... it's AWFUL difficult to find one on Afghanistan deaths on the raise on the major networks, much less on a "no blood for oil" or "out of the Middle East" blogtard, now that the messiah is in-charge (or lack thereof).

    And how funny, no... make that hypocritically sad... iCasualties.org which has been linked here numerous times and throughout Bush's term, is now dead ... guessing it's lack of viewership, care, marketing, accuracy, all the above iCasualties: Operation Enduring Freedom

    So when is "gitmo" closing again? Wasn't that January of this year... I recall libtards wore blue, the Germans in grey... it was the third week. Spare me the "there's more important things now" given the PR tour on TV... Letterman, et al.

    Just like Barrah's lack of when the sham of the non-shovel-ready stimulus would hit/recover us all, there was no end date to closing the prison. He knows the reality what faces us, libtards don't... and that I'm at least thankful for Obama upon... that he deep down may know the reality vs. the empty rhetoric and rah-rah-change-n-hope.

    Huh, I never really noticed, but you're right. There's a weekly protest to end the war near where my friend lives, and it used to be really big. Now it's just 3 old ex-soldiers holding signs. Peoples attention has shifted to another matter, as I guess happens frequently.

    Icasualties was offline for a few days due to a server crash. But it is not dead.

    there also was a recent anti war protest in Washignton DC that had 150,000 people, but the "librul" MSM didn't even cover it.

    Feeling bitter are we? Let's step back and remember who got us here... GWB, and "Deficits don't matter" DC, those guys you voted for, and the 8 year long engineers of the unregulated markets train wreck we're trying to crawl out from under.

    If you cannot discern the difference between why people protested Iraq, read not one WMD to be found, and 4K dead, vs. the Afgan war, where uh, the guys who did attack us were living, then you really don't have any reasoned political point of view, merely an axe to grind, and grind, and...

    And btw Acorn was out of control, and I am glad they cut off their Federal funding.

    The year is 2012 and its election time. Obama steps up to the mike and says "gw bush is evil and i've only been president 4 years so don't blame me". The crowd takes a big gulp of kool-aide.

    If the "Liberal" conspiracy is doing what you say it is then it isn't liberal, is it? Bullies always get their come-uppance whatever powerful media elite is supporting them.

    On the other side of America, presidential hopefuls Limbaugh & Palin (yes, her again) join hands on stage, chanting "Where is your birth certificate" while Joe "You Lie" Wilson gives out complimentary copies of "Barack the Magic Negro" on CD. Meanwhile, Cheney sprays a big pitcher of Red for the crowd from a fire hose.

    And there was much grumbling and moaning from the rest of us who are just tired of the bullshit. :rolleyes:

    Eh?? They make nuisance headlines and noise over every "shit-crossed-the-brain" they can dig up, then whine because no one's talking about the war.

    I think the topic is to illustrate the obvious:

    1.) Obama lied.

    2.) Blood for oil, no more casualties, etc is only important when we don't like the president. Once Obama stepped in, apparently a US Soldier's life became devalued by the media. Their GWB-era outrage apparently tempered by the new Teleprompter in Chief.

    Ohh.... well i guess it's stupid to want that ,albeit pointless, little deal going on in the sand box. JUST cause boys are getting sent home in bags, my friends are being held captive and its getting less attention than our president's episodes of lifestyles of the NEWLY rich and famous and even what beer he drinks with 2 childish grown men he chose to weigh in on..... you're right.... need to quit our whining and force every one in the country to play a drinking game where the only time you can take a shot is when he acomplishes something...... it'd be boring but atleast A.A would owe every person in the country a 9 month chip

    yeah..... TRYING to dodge it.... hmm..... I've been hit in the head and lost alot of blood in my life, help me out now... what was it again thats been done to fix the economy for anything but the up-scale tourism inudstry and budwiser beer in the can?........ Cause i think i must have missed something cause all i've seen "US" do is fly around on my dollar and announce publicly the brand of beer he drinks while back pedeling, fill me in on when the "CHANGE" happened, as i recall the country was broke and there was a war going on when J.R was in office.....

    shush sargon.

    You're supposed to be upset about birth certificates, socialism, and presidential addresses to school kids.

    Forget about the fact that Wall Street pissed away half your retirement savings.
