The Health Care thing is not a good thing. It hurts as many as it helps.

I dislike Obama just as much as I dislike Bush.

Hate is a strong word, and is probably reserved for those of very little education or intelligence.

There are some other huge differences besides health care between the Obama administration and a potential McCain administration.

  • Advanced a timely troop withdrawal from Iraq and ended the war
  • Appointed Sotomayor and Kagan to the Supreme Court, both pro-choice
  • Big 3 auto bailout which McCain opposed
  • Reauthorized Children's Health insurance Program, which was vetoed by Bush and opposed by McCain
  • Brought an end to Don't Ask Don't Tell
  • Signed the Dodd-Frank Reform and Consumer Protection Act which McCain would have vetoed, and established the Consumer Protection Bureau
  • Eliminated restrictions on stem cell research

The differences in terms of energy and education are pretty large as well.

Did anyone else notice in the first few sentences that he seems to loathe Ronald Reagon... It's like he despises him and his ideas. Pay attention to how he says his name and his facial expressions.

That's why this country will go down the tubes... He really is that far apart from One of the best Presidents of all time!

He is far apart from Reagan. Reagan raised taxes, Obama hasn't.

I'll keep that quote ready to paste for the next 4 years

But I'll blank out the bad word after the comma because I'm a great person

He can't. Reagan didn't raise taxes. Tip O'Neill and the Democratic Congress did. Clinton didn't lower taxes. Newt Gingrich and the Republican Congress did. Obama wants to with every fiber of his being, but his first two years he and Pelosi knew it was economic suicide and his last two years the Republican House wouldn't let him. Here's hoping they keep him in check the next four years, as well.
