    true. i want to make sweet love to ScarJo, but I've never claimed I was going to, and it seems unlikely I'll ever have the opportunity.

    I'm hopeful that Hightop isn't an idiot in person. Someone can't possibly be this miserable of a person.

    You just don't understand brah. Obama is an anomaly. He can both enforce all the socialist/un-american policies he wants at whim because he is an evil mastermind dictator, and at the same time he is incapable of getting anything done because he is apparently an unintelligent dolt.

    "...In 1984, Michael Krukones published “Promises and Performance: Presidential Campaigns as Policy Predictors,” and found that “about 75 percent of the promises made by presidents from Woodrow Wilson through Jimmy Carter were kept.” In 1985, Jeff Fishel published “Presidents and Promises: From Campaign Pledge to Presidential Performance,” which argued “that presidents invariably attempt to carry out their promises; the main reason some pledges are not redeemed is congressional opposition, not presidential flip-flopping.”

    More recent evidence supports this view, too. Politifact.com has tracked more than 500 promises Barack Obama made during the 2008 presidential campaign. It found he has kept 161, passed a compromised version of another 50, and has either been rebuffed by Congress or is making progress toward another 239. In only 56 cases — about 10 percent — has Obama actually broken a promise, and in the biggest of those cases — ending the Bush tax cuts for families making more than $250,000 — there’s a good chance the promise will be kept when the tax cuts expire at the end of this year..."

    Obama is doing quite well in keeping his promises.

    He's an interesting phenomenon because he's apparently on the right, but keeps attacking Obama from the left.

    And he used to be on the gov't dole until budget cuts kicked in....so now he's a libertarian. Bizarre-o world.

    I am just wondering. Since you are agree with Vaids does that mean that you are disappointed that Obama didn't close Gitmo and prosecute members of the prior Administration?
