    Obama we now know that words don't matter to you, and that America can not afford another four years of you or your administration, if you have left important stuff, to late to deal with, own it, and hand it over to some one able to do the job that you have not been able to do.

    How dare those poor people get a greater share of the wealth the likes of you and your generation have hoarded and lived in luxury!

    1). All I see are your baseless claims. Not saying they can't be backed up, but could you please put some meat on the bones? Specifically, why do words not matter to Obama? Why can't America stand another four years of him?

    2). Your profile says Australia. I'm just wondering what your connection to the USA is, if any. It doesn't matter really, I'm more curious than anything.

    His partner is American and he spends lots of time in the USA (though we suspect he lives permanently). He loves being a bully (despite the fact he espouses that he is always the 'victom') and wont miss an opportunity to have a got at any political party / leader who he feels will threaten his privileged and luxury lifestyle.

    here we go again Obama blaming others for his cock ups. His had lots of time to do something about unemployment, yet fail grandly, but has to blame the GOP for his failure.

    Obama is just trying to promote the propaganda that he needs more time to get the job done, overlooking the fact that America can not afford him anymore; oh but he is so pretty.

    He and his party are free to introduce legislation so that it can be debated publicly. I wonder if anyone remembers that. It's just easier to do nothing and blame your opponents, with the support of the news media.

    Oh and Obama does have the support of the news.

    Hyperbole. What got attached to the bill after it was submitted? Those tricks are as old as the congress itself. The name of a bill has little to do with what is in it.

    Really? The 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Bill' (later 'Act') was pretty much on the nail (probably because the Republican Party had almost nothing to do with it).

    Other than the fact that had the Republicans who did vote in favor of the repeal NOT done so, the repeal would never have been passed. So, I suppose you can thank The Republicans for that icon_lol.gif

    No, hottie, I mean which president signed DADT into law? That would be Bill Clinton. With a democrat controlled congress, I believe.

    Ex_Mil8 was referrring to who repealed the law, and it was Obama.

    Clinton signed it into law. Before DADT, there was an outright ban on gays.

    The fact a small number of Republican politicians are not bigots is nothing to be proud of. The leadership of the Republican Party and the vast majority of Republican members of Congress did everything they could to block the repeal of DADT (and some are still vowing to reverse it).

    And for those who need a DADT history lesson; before President Clinton introduced DADT, there were no protections for gay service members. Any legislative progress and true leadership on gay rights has come from the Democratic Party and has been consistently opposed by the Republican Party.

    Instead of trying to make light of it, you ought to be fucking ashamed of yourself for supporting this shower.

    And it's also important to point out that John McCain was the loudest most strident opponent of ending DADT.
    If McCain had been elected instead of President Obama - McCain would've vetoed the DADT repeal - and DADT would still be in place.

    Voting for President Obama made a real difference in ending anti-gay discrimination.
    And in a second term President Obama will continue to fight for us.

    Romney on the other hand - would stack the Supreme Court with anti-gay bigots who would vote against our rights.

    +1

    People have such short memories about this, but McCain is a dinosaur who cannot "evolve." Rather, he is going extinct.

    Very well said !
    Too many people make the mistake of blaming our President.
    He doesn't make the laws.
    CONGRESS makes the laws.

    Kick every last one of the Republican obstructionists out of the Congress. And, keep kicking them out until we get representatives who are willing to do the job we sent them to Washington to do.

    YOUR IGNORANCE OF THE AMERICAN LEGISLATIVE PROCESS IS SHOWING.

    OUR PRESIDENCY IS NOT A DICTATORSHIP.

    OUR PRESIDENT CAN'T SIGN LEGISLATION UNTIL IT IS PASSED BY BOTH HOUSES OF OUR CONGRESS.

    EITHER YOU'RE COMPLETELY IGNORANT OF THE AMERICAN LEGISLATIVE PROCESS,

    OR, YOU DON'T LIKE OUR PRESIDENT BECAUSE HE'S BLACK.

    WHICH IS IT ?

    TBA should mind his own damn business. Aren't there pressing domestic issues in Australia or is it a slow news day down under.
