Good morning liars,

Just wondering if you've owned up to your fear of blacks yet?

He can say anything he wants. Doesn't mean he will do anything. Also, there is no chance in hell he can get any new small business tax breaks in place before November. Sounds like a big procreateing pile of political rhetoric.

I would have to disagree with you Stone...
Obama has enacted the following..

 Equal pay for women-Lilly Ledbetter Act
 Revamped the Student Loan program
 Cut taxes for 95% of Americans
 Ended tax subsidies for corporations that send jobs overseas
 Enacted the Credit Card Legislation
 Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act
 Manufacturing Enhancement Act
 Authorized construction/opening of additional health centers to care for veterans
 Closed offshore tax safe havens
 Ended previous practice of having White House aides rewrite scientific and environmental rules, regulations, and reports
 Ended previous policy of awarding no-bid defense contracts
 Improved conditions at Walter Reed Military Hospital and other military hospitals
 Negotiated deal with Swiss banks to permit US government to gain access to records of tax evaders and criminals
 Ended the previous practice of forbidding Medicare from negotiating with drug manufacturers for cheaper drugs; the federal government is now realizing hundreds of millions in savings
 And even paid for redecorating the White House living quarters out of his own pocket
Is this similar to what previous or future Republican administrations would do?

I stand corrected Sioux, although I was being somewhat facetious. I just wonder when we will totally withdraw from Iraq- a place we should have never been. By the way where are those WMD's?

I also wonder when tax cuts for billionaires will be repealed. What a crock of sheit. Plus we got a watered down health care bill that was written the insurance lobby. Nonetheless, like Gunnar said, it is a starting point and it is better than what we had.

But never fear all his accomplishments will soon be undone by the retarded Faux nation of Ditto head, racist, illiterates that believe these lies spewed to them by both parties.

If George Bush had doubled the national debt,which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate,in one year,would you have approved?
Obama put 8700 workers out of work by arbitarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one company had an accident.
If George Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holding of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM,would you have approved?
Obama filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes.
So,tell me what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything?

Of course he can't get anything through Congress. It is the duty of the Republicans to make sure their party looks good, even if they oppose something that is just and fair. They are the party of NO, not the party of What Can I Do for the U.S.A.

Just trying to make a point, here. It has nothing to do with his policies, his policies are about in-line with anything that happened in the last decade - well, at least the result of his policies have been. Blame that on whoever, I wish he'd have been more forceful and waaaaay more socialist, but that's beside the point. They didn't care while another guy sold the country out from under them, because he pretended to look and talk like good ol' Jimmy from down at the corner drugstore. Racists.

And this is actually another crock of sheit, as stone might say. I'd find the study that showed the actual economic impact of the "arbitrary" moratorium, but a) You can google just as well as I can, and b) You wouldn't believe any evidence I presented anyway.
