After looking at the news and the state of our country after these past 4 years I realized that Obama's not so bad... he might even be a decent president.

Took me this long but I finally realize the folly in my old views.

Good or you! Its always nice when people are willing to admit they were wrong.
"Every kid starts out as a natural-born scientist, and then we beat it out of them. A few trickle through the system with their wonder and enthusiasm for science intact." - Carl Sagan

This is the response of the defenders of Sparta to the Commander of the Roman Army: "If you are a god, you will not hurt those who have never injured you. If you are a man, advance - you will find men equal to yourself. And women.

This was the best one I've seen today.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Could always be worse......I mean, we could always have Biden as president.

But as presidents go, he isn't horrible I will agreed.

You...
didn't actually say anything.

You still haven't said anything-- what class is your social justice scheme designed to serve, and what's the new distribution going to be?

No I'm serious, big business has been laboring on the backs of the working class for years now. How are hourly wage workers supposed to get a break when they're constantly worried about living pay check to pay check? They're stuck in a perpetual rut. The way to help them out of that is government regulation and government subsidies. This way, the people can break from the hourly wage rut and prosperity can flow more freely to more people. Not just privileged business owners.

Not to mention how the government is known for being efficient and smart over greedy fatcat businessmen.

Preach it. I mean say it, since all religious references are bigoted and hateful.

Wow, sounds like the stream of racist Koch Bros. money has stopped lining your pockets. Freedom and liberty are stupid, outdated ideas anyway. Obama deserves another peace prize for ensuring that people like Sandra Fluke dont accidentally reproduce because birth control isn't free.

I'm glad you finally understand how a larger state is necessary to solve all of our problems.

Economics has a right wing bias so we need to ignore economic laws. We just know that price controls, central planning, and redistribution really do work.

But as presidents go, he isn't horrible I will agreed.

I think that's why there have not been any assassination attempts, no matter how bad Obama gets, putting biden in power would be exponentially worse.

Biden is the ultimate assassination insurance.

The assassination insurance is that if Obama gets kilt people start treating "You didn't build that!" and "When you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody" like they do Kennedy quotes. He goes from politician to saint. That is bad for a would be assassin.

I KNOW RIGHT!! Free high quality comprehensive preschool, coupled with high quality, free single payer health insurance!!

Make the rich pay their fair share!! Paul Krugman told me that tax rates don't effect economic growth, even though taxes take vital resources out of the economy, but hey, he WON a FREAKIN NOBEL PRIZE!! He must be right!

Kidding. It hurts to pretend.

Obama is, at the very worst, average. He's certainly not the best president, and he's definitely not the worst (sorry W, that title still belongs to you).
