    President Obama ?

    It has been only 200 Days and the jury is almost out and it seems he is the one who is being blamed for the current state of the US Economy. While I have no problem with people raising questions about his issues but in the manner his policies are questioned it seems that a lot of Americans have a major issues with accepting Obama as the President.

    The kind of Ambush (YouTube - Errol Louis on Lou Dobbs Aug. 4, 2009) shown in the townhall is just ridiculous especially when you do not even know what the Plan looks like right now. Is it really a Townhall Debate or something else ?

    LAst evening there was a shooting in our neighborhood Gym, while driving to work, one caller says this is happening because some 69 million people voted for Obama, What the **** ?

    President Clinton brings two stupid Journalists back from North Korea and here we are hearing the talks of 'Obama negotiating with Terrorists'. I mean What the **** ?

    I apologize for my 'WTF' moments in this thread, I am just angry right now at the moment and needed to vent.

    @aussie I dont care much for any news anchor or news channel(as you can see I am not really talking about Dobbs or CNN) , its all propaganda one way or another depending on which side you are on.

    I am more concerned about how some of these town halls have been going, I am rather ignorant about the town hall history before Obama but would assume these were never a place to ambush your representative but a place for exchange between the people and their representative in congress.

    Its all a collective strategy by the right-wing media to bait the racist fringe in America. Very dangerous stuff.

    I saw the other day that America's homeland security said, America's most dangerous terrorist threat is - home grown terrorism. All because a black cat is president.

    Obama is a joke, regardless if a right-wing nut job exaggerates it or not.

    How so? Certainly can't fault his political savvy.

    My only criticism of him so far is that he's had to back down on a few things he promised during the campaign - closing Guantanamo and supporting gay marriage, for example. But he's hardly alone in that.

    That's fine, it is okay to have an opinion about him. But he is the president Or you also think he was born in Kenya ?

    I am fine with people not liking him, What has been discomforting is some folks refusing to accept him as their president.

    First it was the Tea Party,
    Then came the Birthers
    Then came the Dark Knight
    And now attacking the Town Halls.

    It is the same group behind all this. Calls of 'I want my Country Back' has a deep rooted meaning and very very disturbing news. Even worse is people saying Obama is a Nazi, drawing comparisons with Hitler, saying few days of Hitler were comparable to the first few days of Obama, he is aFascist, bringing Nazi symbols in their protests in town halls..this is just insane.

    He already ordered the closing of Guantanamo Bay, Didn't he ?

    Obama orders Guantanamo Bay closed, bans torture - National Politics Blog - Political Intelligence - Boston.com

    And he has not reversed his stance on Gay marriages, has he ?

    Because he is essentially Bush with better PR. His policies are hardly any different from his predecessor and his actions indicate he isn't going to be any different.

    Sanz, I don't care for the whole "does he have citizenship" farce. I am talking about him and his policies; the people around him and clearly what influences him.

    I wouldn't bother posting on a subject if you're so obviously uninformed.
