    Nevermind that he didn`t complete one term in the Senate before running for president. Only person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for things he MIGHT do. He barely got it from what I`ve read about the people the vote on it. A lot of those are really ridiculous, but people`s suspicion`s about him are not unfounded. Only a fool or the hopelessly gullible, will accept everything wholesale.

    None of that holds a candle to what the left accuses Bush of doing... not even in the same area code...

    @5Cats- please do tell- what are some common criticisms of Bush from the left (other than 911 conspiracy theories, I`ll give you that one) that were not based in fact? Waging an illegal war in Iraq and lying about the existence of WMDs to support it? Nope, that`s true. Making torture official US policy? True again. Spending ungodly amounts of money on said illegal war and torture while driving up the national debt AND giving tax breaks to his wealthy backers? True again. Eroding our civil liberties by pushing the Homeland Security Act through congress? My beef with Obama is that he`s not only continued but EXPANDED some of Bush`s most draconian policies. If Conservatives told the truth about Obama, they`d have no choice but to love him.

    Topic change in 3, 2, 1....
    Oh LOOK! @HolyGod is changing the topic!
    UNPRECIDENTED!

    @sbeelz: By "illegal" you mean: Sanctioned by the UN, passed by a vote in Congress in accordance with the US Constitution?
    As opposed to Obama`s invasion of Libya:
    NOT sanctioned by the UN.
    NOT passed by Congress (they weren`t even asked, in direct violation of the Constitution).

    Making torture official US policy?
    Which Obama overturned! Right after he closed Guantanimo Bay and halted Drone Strikes and Illegal Renditions... Oh, no, wait a sec...

    while driving up the national debt AND giving tax breaks to his wealthy backers?
    Right @sbeelz! Because Obama overturned... oh no, he re-signed the tax breaks...
    But he CUT THE DEFICIT just like... no? He DOUBLED IT? And also doubled the US DEBT?

    OH MY!

    Said by Kofi Annan in 2004:

    "I have indicated it was not in conformity with the UN charter. From our point of view and from the charter point of view it was illegal."

    "In 2003, the governments of the US, Britain, and Spain proposed another resolution on Iraq, which they called the "eighteenth resolution" and others called the "second resolution." This proposed resolution was subsequently withdrawn when it became clear that several permanent members of the Council would cast no votes on any new resolution, thereby vetoing it...Regardless of the threatened or likely vetoes, it seems that the coalition at no time was assured any more than four affirmative votes in the Council—the US, Britain, Spain, and Bulgaria—well short of the requirement for nine affirmative votes."

    Riiiight! Dropping bombs, killing civilians, entering airspace without permission, cruise missiles? NOT AN INVASION!
    Move along! Nothing to see here...
    (Last time I checked? Entering a country`s territory, dropping bombs and killing people = acts of war).

    Said by Kofi Annan in 2004:
    Others disagree. His son was making $millions$ helping Saddam trade illegal oil, ffs...

    but my comment went over his head as well.

    "Nobody invaded Libya."

    Honestly @FoolsPrussia? That might be the DUMBEST thing you`ve ever said at IAB, and that takes quite a lot of doing!

    The US Constitution (You ARE an American, right? You ought to KNOW this) FORBIDS military actions outside the USA without the express permission of the House Of Representatives.
    There`s a 60 day "exemption" for EMERGENCY actions, BUT those actions MUST be put before the House before 60 days are up for continued actions.

    Obama did NONE of this!
    Bush did ALL of this!

    And a majority of the Democrats supported Bush.
    NO ONE supported Obama because they were never asked!
    Fact > Lies.

    What part of this do you fail to understand?

    Apart from a tiny proportion for which there is a some evidence (some of it written by Obama himself, some admittedly untrue; however it is hard to complain about a conspiracy you started yourself) I have never heard of any of these.

    He did go to a madrassa, by the way. I don`t know any serious doubts on this fact. The debate is about the nature of the madrassa, as in the west some people assume a madrassa is an evil extremist training camp, which most are of course not.

    Have you heard of Dan Rather? Have you never heard the words "911 Truther)? Have you heard people blaming Bush for sub-prime lending, which he actually tried to deal with, being prevented largely by Democrat politicians who were taking money from subprime lenders ...

    Given that I have never heard of most of the supposed conspiracy theories in this graphic, 5Cats does not really need to answer the point. Anyone who doesn`t already know the answer is himself a Bush conspiracy theorist.

    "Aside from a tiny portion, I have never heard of any of these"

    I haven`t heard most of them. However the idea that Obama was not born here, that his birth certificate is fake, that his college transcripts are fake, that he is a muslim, or that he is part of the muslim brotherhood have been around non stop his whole presidency and are way more mainstream and wide spread than ANY conspiracy theories about Bush.

    "Have you heard of Dan Rather? Have you never heard the words "911 Truther)? Have you heard people blaming Bush for sub-prime lending,"

    I have heard of dan rather. That wasn`t a conspiracy theory. 9/11 truthers has already been acknowledged as a conspiracy theory. Blaming him for sub prime is not a conspiracy theory. A conspiracy would be saying he intentionally did it so his business associates in china could buy up American property.

    Aside from those that pertain directly to him(birther, kenya, etc) many of these can be used to mount a conspiracy theory with any politician, liberal or conservative.

    I will admit though that many of these when you read about them make for a good laugh.

    Yes, I`m aware of these facts, which you would know if you had actually READ my comment in which I said that my beef with Obama is that he`s continued and expanded Bush era policies. Not that I expect you to actually read what anyone writes on here, it`s been apparent since I`ve been coming to this message board that you`re less interested in discussion than you are in arguing for argument`s sake. Not only did you evade my question, you rebutted with an argument that assumes I`m some kind of Obama apologist, which I`m most definitely not. I`d just rather people criticize him for the poo he actually does rather than making up BS ab

    "The US Constitution (You ARE an American, right? You ought to KNOW this) FORBIDS military actions outside the USA without the express permission of the House Of Representatives."

    I am aware. Still not technically an invasion. Thanks for the attempted insult though.

    Here`s what constitutes an air invasion:

    "Invasion by air is an invention of the 20th century and modern warfare. The idea involves sending military units into a territory by aircraft. The aircraft either land, allowing the military units to debark and attempt their objective, or the troops exit the aircraft while still in the air, using parachutes or similar devices to land in the territory being invaded."

    Come on HolyGod, you`re one of the smartest people on here, can`t you see he mega-trolled you? He pretended he didn`t understand what you were saying then did exactly what you said he would (change the subject). That is the frustrating brilliance of 5Cats - although having a talent that turns people off isn`t the greatest trait.

    1) He WAS raised a radical, leftist, communist. If his birth certificate is not faked, why does he not just come out and prove it is real? Why is he hiding all of his records? Why dont you Obama supports at least acknowledge his lack of transparency when it comes to his college transcripts, financial and birth records? If he was born in Hawaii, prove it, if he got financial aid as an American citizen, prove it, It is very easy to make all of us "conspiracy theorists" shut up by showing your records...unless of course you have something to hide.

    that his college transcripts are fake,
    @HolyGod: His school records are SEALED. Not faked. He makes claims about them but there`s NO records which can be looked at.

    I have heard of dan rather. That wasn`t a conspiracy theory.
    That he covered up a Dishonorable Discharge ISN`T a conspiracy? That Dan Rather RUSHED to tell the world of this, as opposed to waiting for it to be fact checked?
    The "Clinton Lewinsky" story was known to Newsweek for WEEKS! But they kept it quiet because they were "still fact checking" it. Then, mysteriously, Drudge Report blogged it out of nowhere. A day or two before Lewinsky was going to "wear a wire" and record Clinton`s perjury... good timing eh?

    "I`d just rather people criticize him for the poo he actually does rather than making up BS about him."
    @sbeelz: Actually I agree with that 100%! I said the same thing about Bush too: There`s PLENTY of stuff Bush did that was bad, stupid or worse! No need to invent "Truther Conspiracies" about him.

    Same goes for Obama: Why make up stupid crap when the facts will do just fine?

    @FoolsPrussia: Casus belli Means "justified acts of war". If a plane drops bombs on YOUR army? THAT is an "act of war" and since it INVADED your soverign airspace to do so? It`s an invasion too. Seriously, splitting hairs much? Plus the fact is: there WERE "troops on the ground" too. British and French "Special Forces" were tracking Libyan units and guiding the bombers...

    You must be a real gym coach, you have that mentality (or lack thereof).

    1) He WAS raised a democrat, I assume in your mind that equates to "radical, leftist, communist" for ALL us liberals. What proof have you that Obama is more "communist" than other Democrats?

    You STILL think his bc is faked? OMG, that one has been totally debunked for all but the most extreme nutjobs. (If the shoe fits...)

    "lack of transparency when it comes to his college transcripts"
    NO president has EVER released their college transcripts. Why are you harping on Obama`s?

    "If he was born in Hawaii, prove it" HE HAS!

    "if he got financial aid as an American citizen, prove it" HE HAS!

    "It is very easy to make all of us "conspiracy theorists" shut up by showing your records"
    That`s bull. HE HAS shown plenty of records, but YOU STILL WON`T SHUT UP!

    @chalket: Because Obama said in one (or both) of his AUTO-Biographies that he embraced radical and far-left positions during his University years? That he belonged to a radical "leftist" group? He ought to know, eh? Since he wrote those books BY HIMSELF, right?

    NO president has EVER released their college transcripts.
    Reagan, Bush I, Bush II, Kerry (but NOT his military service records!), Clinton and MacCain, as well as Romney, ALL DID. It`s a fact.
    There`s no "rule" that says you have to, but really, most do.
    Obama`s are not only "unreleased" they`re SEALED by a court order.

    "if he got financial aid as an American citizen, prove it" HE HAS!
    No, in his autobiographies he describes various "financial aids" he got, but MOST of them would most likely be given to FORIEGN stude

    Lets face facts here. What is the point of all this? OB may not be the best president in history but he is certenly not the worst. As far as ruining the country, There are too many checks and ballences to counter anyone from having that much power. "Dubya" Bush has done far more harm in his first term than Obama has done (Healthcare withstanding, its still a bit early to see all the ramifications of that).

    @5cats, this country was founded by a bunch of terrorists. They fought the establishment, attempted genocide and a lot of people died. They also thought long and hard about how to do government right and loved that which they created through careful consideration of great philosophical minds. Again, you are not an American. I didn`t submit this as an Obama supporter, I didn`t vote for him the last election (you didn`t vote for anyone in this country, ever), I submitted it because it`s hilarious that the American right-wing are addicted to conspiracy fantasy. The reasons for being critical of Obama do not appear on this graphic, yet they are on what the Republican, Libertarian and neo-con idiots focus. It`s absurd but what do you care, canuck?

    Oh yeah, and expect the Insurance Companies to make RECORD PROFITS for the next decade or more... they LOVE Obamacare!
