Yeah, this is one of the reasons why I am not a Obama supporter. He says one thing during the campaign and then does another when elected. So far, Obama is pretty watered-down and kissing too much Republican ass.

I really don't think he's been kissing any republican ass what-so-ever.

Josh said...

But its funny you didn't leave a similar comment on my 4 previous posts about Obama, and it took a video of a left-wing talking head to get you to agree Obama is a liar instead of trying to start an argument with me.

I consider centrists to be republican-lite, so, yes, with all his cabinet appointments he has been kissing republican ass.

That's why you don't know how to argue. You think in black-and-white and are surprised when your judgment doesn't quite line up. Stop this, and it will get easier.

Got any examples?

"If you argue against my philosophy, you argue for the government having the ability to do that which my philosophy does not permit. Therefore, you are pro-fed, pro-government."

All of his cabinet positions.

Even Miss Universal Health Care?

He's spending an awful lot of money to be "republican-lite".

Christopher said...

Not all the cabinet members, of course, but a HUGE majority. Much more than what you would expect from a left-leaning president.

"He's spending an awful lot of money to be "republican-lite"."

And? Republicanism has to with whether you support the Republic and its constitution or not. A politician can simulaneously support the constitution and spend lot of money and be a Republican at the same time. That is, if we define the term properly and not let be hijacked by IDEOLOGUES.

Josh said...

Fair enough. Its a one party system.

Getting there.
