    Well I really did attempt to read these.

    1. I don`t trust anything from an openly biased blog.

    2. I fact checked a few right off the bat and found they were lies.

    3. The list is filled with things like makes mcdonalds include apple slices in happy meals. LOL. Yes, how DARE he want the children in the fattest nation on earth to get some fruit.

    Obama has done plenty of bad things that are legitimate to talk about. Why waste time with a list pumped this full of bulls.hit, propaganda, and anecdotes. Put together a list of 100 serious things and then have an intelligent discussion about it.

    42.The one quote provided from the article cited by Politico contains a grammatical error “in to" instead of "into."

    Really? I mean come on lol.

    87. $1 million was given to a Chicago dinner cruise company to "combat terrorism."

    LOL


    420. When presented with the Keystone pipeline proposal, a multi-billion dollar project that would create thousands of jobs and eventually lead to lower energy prices by improving supply chain efficiencies, Obama refused to immediately approve it.

    Thats just plain retarded ..not like Canadians are voting on it too.

    #14: Government is the spontaneous outgrowth of a nation. It will NOT take hold if constructed by a foreign government.
    #16: Actually a good thing.
    #19: Rumsfeld and Saddam shake hands, just sayin.
    #23: It was a diatribe, good thing he didn`t pay attention.
    #25: We shouldn`t be handing out tax payer dollars to any foreign anyways, so whatever.
    #26: GOOD the Iranians are fed up with our involvement. But no, McCain gives a train-wreck of a response
    #27: GOOD
    #58: That`s a reason some would actually vote for.
    #60: Some endorsements you simply don`t ask for.
    #112: Not a FU<KING thing the president can do about it.

    "Considering that`s an increase of 78% since 2008, that`s quite a lot actually."

    Oh come on. We have been through this. 2009`s federal spending is from the budget proposed and passed by Bush and covers October 2008 – September 2009. Nobody disagrees with that. It isn`t up for debate. So comparing 2008 to 2009 is simply comparing one Bush budget to another. Obama`s first budget is fiscal year 2010.

    HAHA! I submitted this quite a while ago, not in response to that "Why Obama" posting.

    I mean seriously, there are some true, valid and well reasoned reasons to NOT give BHO another 6 trillion dollars to play with at the site...
    ... and other which are just plain silly!

    But I know, for a fact, that the IAB Liberal Brigade will find something to get their collective panties in a twist over!

    And I like that EACH ONE has a link so you can fact-check it for yourself! Unlike, oh, 90% of liberal clains about Romney.

    668.President Obama broke his promise to increase the minimum wage to $9.50.

    = LOLZ! So many broken promises! Lets give him 4 more years to... still not keep them!

    ... dow jones is higher than ever before, record profits...
    Right, unless you adjust it for inflation; then stock prices and profits are in the toilet. And no, I`m not talking about the phoney CPI. That doesn`t even count food and energy, because they`re "too volatile." The only things left in the "consumer shopping basket" the government uses to report the inflation rate is flat screens, flash drives, and flip phones.

    Look at any commodity that is traded on the world market -- oil, corn, gold, etc. -- and you can see that the dollar has lost nearly half its value since Obama took office, which is the ONLY thing pushing stock prices higher -- well, that and the fact the Bernanke is creating $trillions completely out of thin air to buy T-bills at 0% interest which artificially drives more money into the stock market pushing prices higher.

    The fact is, our economy is in complete shambles, and Obama and the Democrats are to blame.

    @Dead_Kittens: 420: the jobs refered to are American jobs! You know, the kind Obama keeps promising to create? With Keystone he KILLED THEM! Dead like doornails! AND he broke some sort of trade agreement too!
    Now Canada is free to sell the same oil to CHINA! Where before we weren`t.
    Nice job BHO!

    Yeah, that`s about all I had to see to not click it.
    @Sepheroth: You open mind is SO MUCH smarter than my closed one!

    "Considering that`s an increase of 78% since 2008, that`s quite a lot actually."

    Can you check your data ever? Just do a quick search to see if what you are saying is correct.

    2008`s federal spending WAS NOT $2.9 Trillion (from your other post) it was $3.168 Trillion.

    2012`s federal spending WAS NOT $3.8 Trillion (from your other post) it was $3.563 Trillion.

    That`s an increase of 12% NOT 78%. Hell your WRONG numbers are only an increase of 31%. Can you math?

    By the way, my numbers are from heritage.org so PLEASE don`t call it biased.

    This is all besides the point that 2009 is Bush`s budget.

    You should feel ashamed on multiple levels.

    @HolyGod: Do you really have not one single clue on how your own governemt works? Not a one?

    "Over Obama`s four budget years, federal spending is on track to rise from $3.52 trillion to $3.58 trillion, an annualized increase of just 0.4%

    This is because spending increases need to be passed in a Federal Budget.
    BHO signed the 2009 budget which had HUGE spending increases, and more pork than any other in history! Remeber his promist to VETO ANY pork-laden budget? Forgot that too eh?
    Ah well.
    The point is that gov`t spending hasn`t gone up much since then... because there`s BEEN NO budgets passed!
    Despite the legal requirement to do so, Obama, Reid and Pelosi REFUSE to present or vote on ANY budget. (except Obama`s personal offering, defeated 435-0 and 99-0 because it sucked!)

    This is not a "good thing" for Obama, it`s a mark of SHAME.

    It`s pretty clear you don`t understand how our government works. We`ve had this conversation before. You have even consented that I am right. 2009 was a budget put together by Bush for fiscal year October 2008 – September 2009.

    HG, I consider Jan. 2007 as the point when it all started going downhill. That`s when Pelosi and Reed took over Congress, and that`s when it all started turning to $#!+.

    I fault Bush for not standing up to them and vetoing more of their crap. He was more concerned with his image as "a uniter, not a divider" than he was about doing the right thing for the country.

    @HG: You`ve really jumped the shark dude.

    "The United States federal budget for fiscal year 2009 began as a spending request by President George W. Bush to fund government operations for October 2008 – September 2009."

    THAT has nothing to do with the BUDGET OBAMA SIGNED in 2009!
    Fiacal Year =/= BUDGET YEAR!

    You are clearly confused. Or overly hung-up on semantics...
    And a hypocrite: since if you really REALLY believed this, you`d extrapolate Obama`s deficits out to Sept 2013, but you don`t!

    Your own link points out that in 2010, 2011 AND 2012 no budget was passed... but they still had a fiscal year!
    Get it yet?
    The Budget Obama passed in 2009 is the problem! Obama re-signed many items in the 2008 Budget or they would no longer exist! (in 2009`s Fiscal Year: October 2008 – September 2009.)

    "The final spending bills for the budget were not signed into law until March 11, 2009 by President Barack Obama, nearly five and a half months after the fiscal year began. "I am signing an imperfect omnibus bill because it`s necessary for the ongoing functions of government," Obama declared."

    The budget Bush put in place IS the budget Obama signed. So I`d say yes, it did have SOMETHING to do with the "BUDGET OBAMA SIGNED in 2009!"

    Who is "we"? I thought factcheck.org was a pretty reliable non-partisan site.

    This is from townhall.com, a leading conservative site:

    "The gold standard in the truth-seeking industry is the non-partisan FactCheck.org, which occasionally irks both sides, but generally does a solid job."

    However if you think they are biased the page I linked to is mostly just data. Do you disagree with the data? I mean if you post dredge report, the site is biased, but if the article is just data I`ll look at the data.

    HG: factcheck.org is funded by The Annenberg Foundation, which took a hard turn to the far left after it`s founder Walter Annenberg died.

    Bill Ayers was the key founder of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, who appointed Obama Board Chairman and President of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.

    Those connections taint everything they supposedly `fact check`.

    #146: The NYT article doesn`t outright say it has a nuclear weapons program. It`s rather troubling when hawks are immediately assuming the worst about a program that can very well be used for civillian purposes.

    #197: Why is this an issue?

    Congress has used its spending oversight authority...
    @jtreb: Congress? In 2009? That would be the Majority Democrat House and the Majority Democrat Senate, yes?
    So... the DEMOCRATS blocked Obama? OK then. Obama doesn`t even have the support of his OWN PARTY!

    The budget Bush put in place IS the budget Obama signed.
    @HG: So Bush put the GM Bailout in place? You are clearly, factually, wrong.

    SOME of the Bush-era polices (the tax breaks the Democrats HATE so much) were indeed re-singed BY OBAMA!
    OTHER spending items obviosly were NEW in the 2009 Budget, Obama signed, for spending BEFORE Sept 30!
    IT`S-A-FACT.

    My facts > your spin

    Lol! It`s amazing how so many Americans believe that the US President is some kind of autonomous actor. `But he said this and then he did that!` Seriously people, if you want politics to be THAT simple regress back to childhood and start organizing the distribution of your birthday treats in kindergarten or something. But please feel free to keep blasting your ignorant rants on to the web; very amusing. And sad. Also very, very sad.

    5cats: maybe you should learn the differences between a majority, and a supermajority. you might also take note that not every politician always votes down party lines. that being said, your lie about Obama lying about wanting to close Guatanamo has been disproven.

    And yet? You STILL won`t drop it!
    Are you denying that in 2009 the Democrats held MAJORITIES? If not, then STFU FFS!

    ...your lie about Obama lying about wanting to close Guatanamo has been disproven.
    What? Obama NEVER promised to close Gitmo in the first year of office? O`really? Wanna bet money on that?

    Eh... I thought as much, I scanned through the list, and in the effort of scrounging up this ridiculous amount of reasons, they had to put in there, that he was taller than Mitt Romney!? What the hell? And that he had fewer shoes than Romney? That was just some I found around the late 800`s reasons. Pick the "good" ones and write 684 reasons not to vote Obama, or something and KEEP SOME DIGNITY reporter, that famehunting and sensationalist writing makes me sick to my stomach and I won`t even consider the serious ones, like when he passed Patriot act, or when that nation al defence act or whatever, that makes it legal to detain people without trial. I call yoour argument invalid, conservatie dayly news, and ignore it all,

    #1 He botched his oath of office ? Wrong : Roberts made the mistake, who cares anyways ?

    #2 read above.

    #3 Obama promised to close Guantanamo. Yes and the congress won`t let him, they won`t let him finance trials for the prisonners or move them in a new state prison in Illinois.

    Should we talk about who opened Guantanamo ? Or about Romney who already changed his mind on things he promised ??!

    #4 Obama promised to restore habeas corpus. Yes and obviously with the situation being stuck at Guantanamo he can`t.

    #5 "President Obama ordered the assassination of an American citizen." An american citizen who happen to be a leader of Al Qaeda in Yemen that Obama put on the "kill or capture" list..

    K that list is just full of BS. Like every president, Obama made some mistakes but this list seems to really have a hard time finding actual mistakes so I`m happy voting for him again.

    @HG: Be quite boy, your ignorance is showing!
    #1 they HAD a supermajority in the House.
    #2 they HAD a supermajority in the Senate!

    Tell me again how `it doesn`t matter`! Because BHO DID have it!
    Oh boo hoo, for 7 months there was only a 59-40 majority in the Senate, therefore it`s IMPOSSIBLE to pass a SINGLE BILL! Right? Yup!
    NOT ONE PotUS ever passed a single, solitary Bill without a Senate Supermajority! NOT ONE! It`s a FACT! Gee, thanks for your "edumication" @HG

    Oh! But if one Repub just didn`t vote? 59-39 = Supermajority Too! You`re telling me that not ONE Senate RHINO couldn`t be persuaded to sit on his/her hands? Hellfire, some even supported Obamacare!!

    Now I say AGAIN: Show me the Gitmo legislation that the Repubs DEFEATED in 2009, go on! I`ll even give you until Nov of 2010...

    Yet consistant.

    @tekinette: Yes, 1 & 2 are just silly!
    #3: Obama SWORE he`d close it in his first year! He VOWED to! PROMISED it over and over again!
    But, he lied...
    #5 Yes, it`s a fact, Obama has a "kill list" AND has deliberatly targeted American Citizens for drone strikes! Tell me again about "right to a fair trial"...
    #6 = true fact
    #7 = true fact

    One reason is enough for me: NDAA.

    How can I vote for somebody who took a poo on our constitution? Sure, he lied about a lot of things to get elected - thats the way politics works. Ok, he takes bribes from lobbyists - they all do. Etc, Etc...

    But I can not vote for anybody (not even by voting against his opponent) who does not believe in the basic liberties granted by our constitution.

    @5Cats

    #3 Oh come on, are you kidding me ?

    In May 2009 the Congress voted to block the funding of Guantanamo.
    The following month Congress voted a bill that required the administration to report plans before moving any detainee and prevented them from moving them onto US soil as well as restrictions to transfer or release any Guantamo detainee to a foreign country.

    Meanwhile the Congress had no problem with Bush releasing over 500 detainees or transfering more than 600 detainees to foreign countries.

    #5 Ya let`s just stick to american citizen, let`s not mention terrorist on purpose..

    So if a terrorist working for Al Quaida has an american citizenship he can`t be killed ? If Obama does nothing or if he sends an army to arrest him he`s going to be criticized as well, so much hypocrisy.. And yes there`s many proof that he was a terrorist, there`s even tapes of him talking about it.

    #6 Obama as a senator did speak out against it, saying it could be improved and he prefered the senate version of the bill... And once Obama became president he did pass key measures in the executive branch that added oversift and transparency to it. Once again : true fact omitting the full story.

    # 7 Same thing

    #8 "Obama continues the “Bush practice” of extraordinary rendition." Once again omiting that it`s minus the torture. A new CIA unit monitored and following strict rules which outlans the use of physical force. Also no more detainess sent to countries known for torture interrogations. He was even praised by the Human Rights Watch for the transparency.

    #9 Obama said "1st day in office, I would give the military a new mission: ending this war" and he did. He promised to bring all combat troops within 16 months, he did it in august, combat troops that is, he was 3 months late, not 34...

    # 10 He never said that, st

    K Im running out of text again lol...

    Anyways

    # 11 He said he didn`t think it was the best solution. He later admited that the surge did work. Most military experts were skeptic it would work, he admited he was wrong, that`s a good thing to me really.

    # 12 He put an end to the war in Iraq, he didn`t mention any "victory" because it wasn`t, he did talk about the troops and their success but not about bush. How is that bad ? Should he have used a 2nd mission accomplished banner with Bush ?

    Anyways this is stupid, Obama did some mistakes but this list seems to really have a hard time finding them. I can list more lies of Romney and he isn`t even president yet, how sad is that ?

    As an undecided voter, those have to be the stupidest reasons to not vote for something. Half of those are untrue pieces of story out of context. The other 3/8`s are useless sentences thats part of the previous point or preceding point. Then, for probably less than the 1/8 that`s left there might be valid reasons, depending on which side of the story you fall on.

    When the first one was `flubbing the oath of office` I knew it was a BS list. If you cannot even start from a point of substance, then you have lost me.

    Also, when several Tea Party Republican congressmen erroneously took their oaths in front of a TV while watching the ceremony on CSpan, did this web page all them out for it? Even when several of their votes had to be withdrawn because of their stupidity? No.

    Be consistent. Be relevant. Be accurate. Then maybe I will listen.

    @Tekinette: There`s links provided to get the "full story", easy-peasy! Putting the "full story" on EVERY point would make the list 5 miles long!!!
    6 & 7: so it`s true, good.
    #8: "minus the torture" LMAO! No really, my ass just fell off because I laughed AT YOU so hard!
    Just what ARE they doing to prisoners on those "black ships" in international waters? Hummm? Playing Parcheesi?
    #9 Obama kept his promise, but of course he followed the EXACT timeline Bush had ordered! So in FACT it was Bush how "ended the war in Iraq" and not Obama (although it happed while he was PotUS...)

    #10 I honestly don`t know if Obama said 2011, nor do I care really. Still it`s a sure sign of his LACK of knowledge and experience, eh?

    #11 "It`s not the best solution" = Opposed it!
    And he (and the rest of the Democrats) DID oppose it! Called Gen "Betray-Us" (remember that?) a murderer for supporting such a plan!
    Later Obama... oreder a Surge in Afghanistan! Led by... General Petraeus! Suddenly the Democrats LOVE this guy!
    So it`s not so bad that Obama did what his party told him, but he`s still responsible for his words and actions!
    #12 Oh most certainly: Obama claimed 100% of the credit for withdrawl in Iraq!~ Bush was never mentioned, and the MSM were happy to comply!

    I thanks you for your reasoned, polite discussion! So rare these days on IAB... feel free to continue to disagree, I don`t mind!

    @chalket: I do recall an order to "study the removal" which seems to be what you`ve linked.
    That`s fine.

    However it`s NOT the Republicans who "stopped BHO" in that case, it`s the DEMOCRATS who told him "sorry Mr.Prez but closing Gitmo isn`t prudent!"

    My points remain:
    #1 No Republican stopped BHO from closing Gitmo (although they OBVIOUSLY rejected the idea, duh! That`s their JOB as opposition!)
    #2 BHO`s own people refused to close it.
    #3 Rather than admit the truth, Obama (and his people) spread LIES to cover his butt on the subject.

    A REAL PotUS would say: The BucK Stops Here!
    Obama Says: The evil Republicans MADE ME do it!

    He promised to close it in YEAR ONE and did not. It`s a fact!~ no excuses can change that.

    History Lesson Time!
    Barack`s Order Features prominent mention of the Geneva Convention, which is good.
    However, the creation of Gitmo is because of the GC!
    Soldiers in uniform have GC rights, but those NOT in unifrom have... none!
    It used to be spys, scouts and partisans who were non-uniformed soldiers, but now it`s "terrorists" who fill that catagory.

    If you capture a non-U soldier, you can shoot him on the spot! Or "question him" (you`re not supposed to use torture, but beatings are OK) and THEN shoot him!

    The US Army had to come up with a plan to keep captured non-U alive, (the notion of Americans shooting POWs is a no-go!) but still be able to interrogate them.

    Gitmo is an elegant solution! It`s worked just fine! THAT is why Obama has chosen to keep it open.

    You failed. The fact that you failed doesn`t mean the next candidate won`t fail. However, he has much more experience in job creation, and the economy in general. More experience, and not failing as you have. OVERSEAS... fail. Why? You can try IAB... logic.
