The American people elect a president with a total of 142 days experience as a US Senator from the most politically corrupt state in the Union whose governor is ousted from office. The President's first official act is to order the close of Gitmo and make sure terrorists civil rights are not violated. The President down plays the "War on Terror" and names 9/11 "Service Appreciation Day".

  • I think when you pick and choose information you could make anyone look bad.

    The poster may have picked and chosen, but there was so much to pick and choose from and it hasn't been a full 7 months. There is the problem. That there is sooooo much stuff that isn't good. His bad decisions far out weigh his good ones.

  • I think when you pick and choose information you could make anyone look bad. ANYONE. Take me for example... if I chose only tidbits of reality here is what you could come up with...

    1. Helped a friend get an abortion by driving her to the appt, 2. arrested for smoking pot (age 17), 3. cheated on husband, 4. forgot to buckle child in car seat, 5. has a brother who was in rehab for drugs, 6. dropped out of college.

    That is not an accurate picture of my life AT ALL. I am a successful, happily married, working mother with great kids... what you read above is not even 1/1000 of the big picture. Most of it happened over 20 years ago... but you see what you WANT to see, which is rarely reality. I don't think this is any different.

    Thosoe are

  • Would you question your kid's high school principal if they hired crooks as a teacher?

  • Most of it is true. I remember hearing about these things. They are all seperate actions so you need to google each one if you really want to get the facts. Here is a start with the one I know is false

  • Are you saying you want a link to show when Obama began his time as a US Senator? (He was sworn in Jan. 5, 2005)

    Or that you need a link to verify that he immediately moved to close Gitmo? (He was sworn in on Jan. 20th, and on the 22nd the White House announced his order that Gitmo be closed within the year)
    I don't understand: are you doubting these facts because you have been out of the loop with the news?
    (I've been THERE ! ... I had no TV for about 8 years while my children were young, so imagine my utter bewilderment upon seeing "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle" cereal in the grocery store !! )

    Link that Holder is from that law firm:
    & that they have Gitmo clients:
