I don’t live in America, but that is the best president you will ever have. Don’t screw it up when it’s time for election again cause this man is actually fixing your country and the shit that Bush fucked up. He’s not a fucking magician, he won’t fix everything with a snap of his fingers, but he’s at least doing something.
AND ALL WHILST BEING AWESOME.
THIS, A HUNDRED TIMES THIS
This. At least he’s trying.
OMG, YES. Voted for him in ‘08, voting for him again in ‘12.
AHHHAHAHAHAHA I am not even going there.
Yep. He’s getting my vote in ‘12. Especially if he brings me donuts *goes off to forage for breakfast*
Can’t wait to vote. I turned 18 a week after the last presidential election.
Where has he been? In the White House, doing his job, without, I might add, too much support from the people who got him in there. Did everyone think we just elect a black guy and he shuffles in to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. and just does magic? People have a lot of nerve claiming he hasn’t done anything or has been an absentee landlord, given that he has actually accomplished shit against a surging tide of Republican bullshit!!! He’s had to fight with a Democratic Party that can’t pour pee out of a boot with instructions written on the heel and a Republican Party whose avowed job since he got elected has been to stymie him and defeat him at every step. And still… health care reform… an end to DADT… economic stimulus… payroll tax cuts and incentives… bank reforms… The question isn’t where has HE been - the question is where have YOU been?!?!?!
“…and this is how the Republicans and I negotiated that debt plan.”
Yes, President Bush may be out of office, but he left behind some real tools. And sure, President Bush may have taken his eye off the Afghan / Pakistan border for a trillion-dollar detour into Iraq, but that was just misdirection — bloody, economically-draining razzle-dazzle! It’s like that old football play where, right after the game starts, you send your defensive line to the gym to play basketball for eight years, at the end of which you will retire and then the next coach sends a lineman back into the stadium to shoot the opposing quarterback in the eye!
President Obama has continued the Bush policies of keeping a military presence in the Middle East. He did not scrub the mission to get Bin Laden. In fact, it may be that President Obama single-handedly came up with the technique in order to pull this off. You see, the military wanted to go in there and bomb as they always do. They wanted to drop missiles and drop bombs and a number of totally destructive techniques here. But President Obama, perhaps the only qualified member in the room to deal with this, insisted on the Special Forces. No one else thought of that. President Obama. Not a single intelligence adviser, not a single national security adviser, not a single military adviser came up with the idea of using SEAL Team 6 or any Special Forces.
