I was incorrect that President Obama is center right. I think my confusion is President George W Bush was so far to the right that it makes it appear that Obama is in the middle:

Wow, doubling down on your lie. Way to nail down your lack of character Crakrjak.

My full sentence was, "Liberals are disappointed in him only because he didn't move far enough to the left from where George W had us." The word you are purposely ignoring is ONLY. Without that you are lying about what I said. But why change now. You have a history of doing this to people. You're the king of the strawman argument. Why comment on a persons point when you can just change it to match the argument you want to make. Basically in doing this you are just playing with yourself.

he's been quick on the trigger on foreign policy,

Oh yeah @patchy! He's all over that 'Syria Thing' eh? Like white on rice... two years it's been going on now... 25,000 dead...

As for the Union Thugs: by NOT taking action, or even addressing the issue, he speaks volumes... he only picks a side if there's political correctness on his side.

@FP Obama never has to say it, his lackeys and the MSM do it for him. Like 'Honest Abe' Lincoln, he haad a right-hand man who did ALL the lieing for him!

@foolsowl: Reagan lowered taxes on the poor, and closed hundreds of "loopholes" on the rich. The net was a slight increase in revenue, so I guess that counts as raising taxes... unlike Obama who is taxing EVERY American with ObamaCare.

This country has moved so far to the right in the last20-30 years, Republicans would call Reagen a communist today.

That's tough to say. I think a more accurate statement would be that the two primary parties have become more extreme over the past few decades.

While Republicans might abhor Reagan's economic policies, we must also remember that FDR vehemently opposed public sector unions. Certainly many modern Democrats would consider this attitude "center right" or even "far right". Yet, just as Republicans tend to idolize Reagan, many Democrats tend to idolize FDR.

The real problem currently is that we are being taught to dismiss and ignore otherwise intelligent ideas by those who oppose our own.

markust: President Obama is to the right of Reagan in so many ways.


That statement alone, should be enough to get you committed to a mental institution.

I did not say...


Oh yes, you did say
Liberals are disappointed in him
.
Which was disingenuous on your part. It's laughable that you're disappointed in him because he's not leftist enough. Your ilk worship him like N.Koreans worship their "Dear Leader", Kim Jong Un. The left is entranced by Obama as if he was a hypnotoad.

Not going to waste my time responding to your statement Crakrjak. Taking a third of one of my sentences and turning it into something I did not say pretty much sums up what a dishonest person you are.

Absolutely. President Obama is to the right of Reagan in so many ways. If I was a conservative I would be happy at how far to the right the country has moved.

This country has moved so far to the right in the last20-30 years, Republicans would call Reagen a communist today. When we started to go into recession in the 80's he raised taxes and increased federal spending, more than doubling the deficit, to get us out of it. What do you think today's republicans would say about that if he was president now?

Obama is only 'center right' in comparison to Josef Stalin.

Repeating that doesn't make it true. He's at most slightly left of center. He's left gun control as is, he signed the NDAA, his "socialist" healthcare is actually less leftist than Clinton's failed attempt was, because Clinton wanted to regulate the insurance companies through a National Health Board and Obama's leaves the private insurance market as is (although now much larger), he's been quick on the trigger on foreign policy, he's escalated the war on drugs, he extended Bush tax cuts, the list goes on and on. If you were arguing that he is more left than centrist that's one thing, but to say he's some communist dictator who's slightly right of Stalin is just asinine.

NOW a white guy gets beaten by Union Thugs and Obama says... nothing.

Oh I see. So it's clearly Obama's fault that the guy got beat up because Obama didn't buy the guy a beer after. Brilliant logic there.

Yeah sure. That's why they voted for him a second time, because of all the disappointment. Obama is only 'center right' in comparison to Josef Stalin.
That pretty much tells us where you stand, now doesn't it?

And regarding his golf habit:

"Now, there's no question that he plays on a regular basis: 104 rounds from January 2009 through Aug. 4 of this year, the last time he played, according to Mark Knoller, the longtime White House correspondent for CBS Radio. That puts him about in the middle when compared with other duffers-in-chief. It's less than Bill Clinton, and a lot less than Dwight Eisenhower, who played more than 800 rounds over eight years — four times as often as Obama plays."

How about criticizing him on matters of substance?

Not once have I heard Obama say the words, "that's racist."

And that's Obama's fault how?

@patchy: After a black man got arrested for breaking into his own house? Obama held the "beer summit". After Giffords got shot? He proclaimed how ALL Americans should be safe from violence (or something like that).
NOW a white guy gets beaten by Union Thugs and Obama says... nothing.

Obama has played his class warfare harp continuously,

True that @CrakrJak! He only knows two songs: "That's Racist!" and "Tax the rich!" and he plays them all day long, over and over again.
When he's not out GOLFING of course...

"Says, one of the most divisive people on IAB."

Whatever Crakrjak. If you are talking about yourself this makes sense. You are so divisive and so far to the right that Obama's moderate position looks to the left when actually he is center right. Liberals are disappointed in him only because he didn't move far enough to the left from where George W had us.

I myself am very inclusive. I don't talk politics with my parents because I don't want the division. I don't talk politics on Facebook because I do not want to alienate my friends and family who do not have the same views. I don't talk politics at parties for the same reason. IAB is pretty much the only place I discus politics with people who don't have the same beliefs as myself. But even here I am very much into people tuning out the opinion media so there is less division.

"Obama actively dislikes me"


Welcome to how I have felt about every US president to that has ever been in office since I have been alive.
