    4 members of the IAB Liberal Brigade comment:
    0 have even -looked at- the article
    All 4 complain about `too much Obama`
    All 4 choose insults over reasoned comment or legitimate discussion
    1 spams because he has literally nothing intelligent to say, ever...

    Oh so typical... Y`all are just... sad.

    1note... no intelligent conversation possible with you. You`ve proved that approx 20,000 times. So I simply bring it down to your level... In that if you`re going to insist on character bashing anyone, then expect people to openly express their negative view of your character.

    Learn to live and enjoy life and respect yourself, instead of stewing in hatred over a foreign politician.

    Bush?

    He was and still is (see the painting xmas decoration stuff) an acceptable point for gest and comment. It was never too much, didn`t have to be reasoned, could just insult him. His speech and vernacular was insulted, one of his flagship no child left behind was criticised more than ACA. I was at a Linken Park, Jay-Z concert (went for pendulum warm up act) Jay-z got a picture of Bush on stage and then got the audience to chant "drat you bush" at the picture.

    I can go on, but considering the amount of abuse a republican president got around the world that was encouraged by democrats in the USA. 5Cats is allowed to be critical of Obama, and it is legitimate criticism of his flagship act (his other flagship things like shutting gitmo haven`t really happened...)

    Does the disabled, 50-something guy with mental issues, an obsession for catgirls, and an even bigger obsession with liberals, who spends all day on this website, with 20,000+ posts to his name, REALLY want to start with the personal attacks?

    All you who are tossing insults at 5Cats can save your breath. He doesn`t possess the thin skin that is required to be a good liberal (because he`s far from being one) and I like his penchant for going against the tide usually found here on IAB.

    I did read the article and as I was reading the questions, I was thinking that I really would like to hear the president answer them. They are good questions. Problem is, politicians at any level are incapable of giving good answers... to anything.

    @McGovern1981

    Most people are tired of responding to 5Cats. Can`t =/= wont.

    As for you...every single negative attribute you spot, you say "typical liberal". It`s like you`ve not even got a specific idea of what a liberal is any more. To you, it`s just a personification of anything you personally don`t like in particular.

    If a dog crapped on your lawn, you`d accuse it of being a liberal.

    Nope. I`m looking squarely at you.

    Why don`t you call people out for being pooty because they`re pooty people? If anything, by saying "it`s because they`re liberal" is almost excusing them. Like they`ve got a condition or something and they can`t help it.

    Thanks @pmarren! You actually LOOKED AT the questions so you know: they`re VALID!
    But the MSM Press corps did NOT ask even one of them.

    You`re SO right, 5Cats.

    About time you admitted that, @SmagBoy1...

    Thanks for the support @Bakcagain21 :-)

    I don`t mean that you literally say the exact words "typical liberal".

    Why don`t you respond to the meat of what I said, apart from picking at a specific detail and ignoring the rest?

    I accuse you of not hating liberals at all. I accuse you of placing the label of liberal onto anything you hate. I think it`s reached the point where you don`t even know or care what a liberal is; to you it`s just a catch-all name for everything you happen to not like.

    Stepped in dog poo...it`s a liberal. Someone cut you up? It`s a liberal. Ants at your picnic...damn liberals.

    @McGovern1981

    Don`t think I`m singling you out for this, by the way. Plenty of others are guilty of this exact same thing. But that doesn`t give you a pass to do the same.

    If someone is pooty, call them out for it. But don`t claim what they`re doing is a particular sin of liberals (or conservatives, or ducks, or whatever), because it NEVER is. Every group is filled with the exact same types of people doing the exact same pooty things. The only difference is the colour of the flag they fly.

    So stop with the whole pot-kettle-black rubbish and actually debate the ideology, not the morons spouting it.

    Okay?

    @Bakcagain21. You make a very mute point. No one on these forums posts consistent repeated Lets Hate Bush themed posts. Those that are hung up on Bush are just as miserable as 5cats.

    My remark was toward a Canadian who is so incredibly obsessed with American politics that he spams link sites with misleading material from disreputable sources.

    Yes I understand he has both said and admitted in previous threads that he has a mental condition and most of the time that is his free pass for spreading hatred on this website. But after so long enough is enough.

    Everyone is entitled to opinions and viewpoints, but 5cats goes beyond that. He isnt simply expressing viewpoints he is posting hate filled propaganda and publicly berating anyone who disagrees with it.

    I guess maybe you could support this type of behavior if you support the spread of hatred in our world? Because that is basically all this post is, no real info just spreading hate.

    Musuko42-"If a dog crapped on your lawn, you`d accuse it of being a liberal."

    A dog crapping on a lawn is not a liberal/conservative issue.

    Members of the Press, who are `supposed` to be `journalists`, failing to ask even the most basic questions of a failing liberal president IS a liberal/conservative issue.

    Just take the first question: `Where do you derive the legal authority to change large parts of this law passed by Congress?`

    I recall many condemnations by the press that `Bush didn`t have authority to declare war` on Iraq (although the Iraq Resolution granted him that authority). Yet Obama has changed the ACA law 20 times as of today (he just extended today`s deadline), and all you hear is crickets. The President does not have authority to enact, change or fail to enact laws at his whim. Yet Obama does just that.

    Really? So when 5Cats cries like a b*tch to the mods for someone to be banned for disagreeing with him, which he claims is a "personal attack", he`s demonstrating how thick his skin is? I think you have it backwards.

    No it isn`t, and that`s my point! It`s an issue of pooty journalism, which is rife across the board! It`s got nothing to do with politics apart from that happening to be what they`re talking about this time! But you MAKE it about politics because that`s your angle.

    @McGovern1981

    And as I responded: hypocrisy is not just a liberal preserve. EVERY group has it. You`re not adding anything useful by pointing it out as a liberal trait.

    All you accomplish is opening the door to them throwing it back in your face by referring to when some conservatives have done the self same thing: pot kettle black. And nothing useful gets talked about!

    Anyone thinking "the media" doesn`t press Obama, but did press Bush, etc., has selective, anecdotal memory syndrome (SAMS, trademark 2013, smagboy1). The idea that "the press" or the "MS" is some sort of monolithic liberal apparatchik is victim-hood at its finest. Does it *lean* liberal? Perhaps. Of course, so does the country (at least if polls on gay marriage, rape, religious freedom, racial issues, social issues, etc. are concerned). But that `lean` is only about 60/40, which is about what most major studies find when they analyze news coverage. In other words, right in line with what we`d expect.

    Only to people who see Obama as something he`s not.

    Problem with that is I see that they suck in a lot of ways too. Both sides are the problem they don`t care about people they care about getting re-elected and point fingers at each other. I just take the side of a conservative here sometimes because the Obama heads here like to follow without question and provide no valid argument only insults.

    Musuko42-"It`s an issue of pooty journalism, ...It`s got nothing to do with politics"

    Yes, it`s pooty journalism. But the CAUSE of pooty journalism is entirely because of politics. MSM has a severe left bias, and they`re not going to question `their` guy.

    Gone are the days of impartial reporters. Today was have `journalist` who get a "thrill up my leg" at even being in the presence of Obama (Chris Matthews, who also proclaimed Obama `The Perfect American` ). Or admit they consider Obama "he`s sort of God" (Evan Thomas, Newsweek editor..You remember Newsweek, who proclaimed Obama re-election as `The Second Coming`?). Or think "that he was going to be the next messiah." (Barbara Walters).

    Unbiassed my arse.

    Oh yes! Yes they certainly did! It was constant, non-stop Bush bashing here. Your memory seems to be highly selective.
    Bush planned 9/11
    Bush murders babies
    Bush is spending too much! LMAO
    Bush is an idiot, retard, illiterate who is also very stupid.
    & etc

    Funny, that`s exactly what I think when I see one of your posts!
    @whodat: At least I READ you comments before I judge them... unlike you...

    It`s an issue of pooty journalism,
    True @Musuko42, and about 80% of all journalists self-identify as "liberal" eh? About 75% are members of the Democrat party (if they openly belong to one)
    So: pooty journalism = liberal bias. 8 times out of 10.
