Sorry for the awful post due to strange typing deletions. I meant to say that if
Obama was just now running for the first time he’d have an additional four years
of dirty deeds in Chicago politics to try and explain away but he’d have the “black
thing” still going nicely for him.

If Obama were running for the first time in 2012 could he win? He’d have the
“black thing” still going for him but he’d also have an additional four yearfor
whatever clown the Republicans run. A smug victorious Obama would be worse
than a clueless Republican. On opinion of course and my right to act on my hatred
for the guy.

@ Heterochromatic

Kinda hard to see us not signing up for something anyhow, you know what I mean??? “Take the lead.”

Do the right thing, you know???

I am frankly crushed and dissapointed. I thought you were different.

Say what you will, Heterochromatic, I just know there is a seed of golden goodness lying somewhere deep in your poor troubled constricted heart… silently screaming.

I can hear your plea even if it doesn’t register upon your conscious mind.

I am all. I see your hidden beauty and splendor.

Embrace me.

Embrace the light of reason and of your own better instincts.

Let your conscience trouble you no more (until you relapse and fuck up again).

Kinda hard to see us signing up for something that Russia, China, India,  Brazil,
Japan, Canada and Australia weren’t going to observe. ... whether or not some
group of deniers likes it matters little, it just wasn’t a fair deal.

“A new report shows that despite a campaign pledge to get lobbyists out of Washington, the Obama White House has weakened regulation in favor of corporate interests more than the Bush administration.”

“On Wednesday, a group of climate change deniers praised the Obama administration’s refusal to support an extension of the Kyoto Protocol or an agreement on binding emissions cuts.”

Honest! I thought Obama would be a perfect two party candidate for 2012 back in
2008. Would it be legal to officially run on both tickets?

Once again Mr. Fish knocks it out of the park. 

I look forward to reading the unintentionally humorous non sequiturs of the
Obamanation/Dim-ocrat apologists (Laughayette, I know your out there) as they
unwittingly prove that blind allegiance to rhetoric and image are synonymous with
naivete.

“President Obama hasn’t been a bad republican president”.  i get quite amused when i say that to my left and right wing aquaintances and watch them, with equal anger, lose their political minds.  the only concern, is that if reelected, his leftist side will emerge full force.
