That's just the point. Unlike King Bush ( or so he thought ) Obama is just an elected politician.

A BIG SHAME he wasn't president all those years ago too-

"The Exxon Valdez tanker spilled more than 11 million gallons of crude oil into Alaskas Prince William Sound, which eventually contaminated approximately 1,300 miles of shoreline. The total costs of Exxon Valdez, including both cleanup and also fines, penalties and claims settlements, ran as much as $7 billion. Cleanup of the affected region alone cost at least $2.5 billion, and much oil remains.

Yet Exxon made high profits even in the aftermath of the most expensive oil spill in history. They made $3.8 billion profit in 1989 and $5 billion in 1990. And this occurred while Exxon disputed cleanup costs nearly every step of the way.

Exxon fought paying damages and appealed court decisions multiple times, and they have still not paid in full. Years of fighting and court appeals on Exxons part finally concluded with a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2008 that found that Exxon only had to pay $507.5 million of the original 1994 court decree for $5 billion in punitive damages. And as of 2009, Exxon had paid only $383 million of this $507.5 million to those who sued, stalling on the rest and fighting the $500 million in interest owed to fishermen and other small businesses from more than 12 years of litigation.

Twenty years later, some of the original plaintiffs are no longer alive to receive, or continue fighting for, their damages. An estimated 8,000 of the original Exxon Valdez plaintiffs have died since the spill while waiting for their compensation as Exxon fought them in court."

Let me see if I have this right. You declare the Bush was a King in his own mind, but Obama is "just an elected politician?" You sure you're not suffering from that...what was it again...PPD...Partisan Perception Disorder?

P.S. I thought I was on your ignore list?

You're right! I do have the opinion that Bush thought of himself that way. Either way I don't agree with everything Obama does and he's not my king.

Anything else? Also you're currently off my ignore list. Are you sure you want to be there?

Those like you irrationally defend him at every turn. He could be on tape raping a baby, and the left would find excuses, or blame Bush.
This Obama cult of personality is dangerous.

Like I've said I don't agree with everything he does. And yes! I disagreed with almost everything Bush did. So what's your point?

On a more serious note, isn't interesting that you say this:

Show me someone here that I've done that to with quotes please.

By the way it's :

Partisan

Polarity

Disorder

It's anyone who doesn't want to rise above their party ( or beliefs ) and work with the other side for the greater good. Be it Democrat or Republican ( or Libertarian ).

Just look at the last quotes here and tell me you guys want to work together with liberals ( some of the solutions have to be their ideas ) to solve our massive problems.

Thank you for supplying the perfect quote!

I'm sure MJ appreciates it as well!

This is exactly what I've been talkiing about.

Thank you for proving my point!

According to just about every opinion poll, liberals are on the wrong side of almost every issue, yet you think it is us who should kowtow to your leader and his twisted socialist views. Not all of us want to live in Europe, or Venezuela- the way things are going.
You blindly follow your icon out of partisanship. Out ideals are based on common sense and patriotism.

You know the real reason the Democrats won the last election is because the conservatives sunk themselves.

If you preface every White Policy policy initiative discussion with the understanding that Obama is both anti-American and intent on ruining this nation, understanding his motives and methods is easier.
