  1. LOL. How dare he clean up Bush's mess!
  2. This country was built by refugees for refugees. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Sad that people want to let the terrorists win by changing who we are as a country.
  3. The best answer to this. We're a country that can only focus on one thing at a time. So, let's not focus on stopping ISIS, we have to get the homeless and poor straight first. Not sure how letting Syrians in stops anything? Now I don't believe all Syrians are terrorists, but id be willing to bet a few sneak in during the process. Just playing the odds. I guess they can always hook up with the ones that are already have blended in to their communities. Exciting times we live in...... How many of the attackers in Paris were from Syria again? They might have been French citizens but they aren't "from there" originally..... So how many of the attackers in Paris were from Syria again?
  4. Been a while since you've read 1984, eh? They will always take away your freedoms in the name of security. I find it weird that the people who claim to be all about freedom, the Constitution, and small government are Snowden haters.

  6. I addressed this earlier in the thread, but you are (mostly) correct. I'd say going to war with Iraq while cutting taxes certainly hurt our economy, for example. But as I said earlier, whether it's fair or not, a President is largely judged on how the economy did while he was in office.
  7. We settled this issue in previous discussions, you blithering idiot. You've never lived in a safer time in history. This seems to be a common theme these days with older Conservatives, this feeling that the country isn't "theirs" anymore. They feel that while this used to be a white, Christian country, now whites and Christians are under attack. White males used to be able to say whatever they want to minorities, gays, women. Now they can't without being ostracized. We have a black President. Gay marriage is legal everywhere. The hispanic population is growing at an exponential rate. In short, they are freaking out. They desperately want to go back to that magical time in the 50s, when everything was perfect. Just as long as you were a white straight male. Sorry fellas, but you can't stop progress. I get that you don't see it as progress, but nonetheless things are changing and the GOP will have to change too if they ever want to win another national election.
  8. This isn't the same Vikings defense as the ones that gave up a lot of yards to the Packers in the recent past. Nor is it the same Eddie Lacy that you wouldn't even think about benching.
  9. There's a good chance he will, as a 3rd stringer/practice squad guy when someone gets hurt. In other words, it won't matter. Dallas was the absolute ideal situation for him to be in. And here we are.
  10. FWIW, I'm starting Romo over Dalton in 2 different leagues. The red BB gun has been cooling off, unfortunately.
  11. When was the "definition of unemployment that is reported changed to make the numbers look better" again? I'll wait.
  12. The idea that it was Bush who got us into the recession or that Obama who got us out are silly notions and not facts.As I stated earlier, whether they are directly responsible for the economy or not, the economy is one of if not the #1 factor that a President is judged by. Probably #2 after foreign policy. You can argue that's not the way it should be, but that's the way it is. When Bush left, the economy was in shambles. Under Obama, the economy has recovered. Unemployment is back down, and the stock market is back up. That's why this thread topic is so funny to me. By pretty much every metric, the country is doing better now than it was when Obama got into office. Based on that, suggesting he's the "worst president ever" is pretty laughable.
  13. About half of Democrats voted for use of force in IraqEconomies are complex but using the simplistic approach you have- Bush presided over a huge economic boom for most of his Presidency. While Obama's recovery has been the weakest recovery in modern times fueled mostly by unprecedented monetary policy to keep above water.Obama got us out of Iraq on the timetable set up by Bush and many of us (see what I did there) knew it was too early and we are seeing how it was mistake currently.Facts, not sure you have all of yours straight. Sweet deflections. We got into Iraq because some democrats voted for it. Bush was doing okay before The Great Recession, and Obama got us out of it, but not quick enough. Bush gets no blame for getting us into Iraq or planning to leave, but Obama gets the blame for following Bush's timetable. Revisionist history is fun! Who said this? Just refer to #1 in the post above mine. "About half the Democrats voted for use of force in Iraq". Completely ignoring the fact that the Bush administration rallied everyone to go into Iraq by providing false information. Bush gets no blame because some Democrats believed the lies he told them. Like I said, it was a pretty sweet deflection.

  15. who cares about feelings? Have we been safer? I say yes. Except for domestic gun dudes. They shoot up schools and what not. Obama can't stop the NRA.So you are one of those that considers domestic attacks on our military by Islamic operatives "workplace violence?" Most Americans don't. Hence the results of the 2014 mid term elections. By the bolded part alone Obama has been far better than Bush. "I felt much safer with the last President who presided over the largest attack on US soil in history!" Again, the facts disagree with you here.
  16. getting us out of Iraq was a huge mistake. Bush presided over a booming economy for 6 years. LOL. Again, cognitive dissonance is pretty amazing. "Well yeah, he left us with the worst economy since the great depression, but the first few years were pretty good!" You might as well have included "He kept us safe, besides that one time thousands of Americans were killed on US soil!" As far as Iraq goes, I'm not sure what the alternative to leaving would be. You would rather we stay there forever? Regardless, we wouldn't have to worry about ISIS or any of this crap if Bush hadn't gone in under false pretenses in the 1st place. It's one thing to disagree with Obama's policies. But to suggest his record thus far isn't 1,000X better than his predecessor is just flat-out ignoring reality.
  17. Immigration was a hot topic well before the Syrian refugee issue. Ok.... So what does that have to do with the thread topic exactly?
  18. Cognitive dissonance is a pretty interesting penomenon. Bush gets us into Iraq, which many of us knew from the start but now everyone acknowledges was a huge mistake costing a trillion dollars and thousands of American lives. Bush presides over the worst economy since the great depression. Obama gets us out of the great recession, and out of Iraq. Yeah, Obama is totally the worst president ever. Facts, how do they work?
  19. Changing who we are as a country out of fear is EXACTLY what the terrorists are aiming for. It's the whole point of terrorism. Let's not give them their victory.
  20. Let's see: Unemployment rate - vastly improved Stock Market - vastly improved Value of the dollar - vastly improved Kept us safe thus far Got us out of Iraq Passed ACA Gay Marriage Legalized Worst President ever, lol. Anytime you Conservatives wanna join us over here in the real world, we'd be glad to have you back. I mean it's one thing to disagree with the guy, but the results cannot be argued. He came into office during the worst economy since the Great Depression, and got us out of it. He got us out of Iraq and has kept us safe so far. The two main things any president is judged on is the economy and foreign policy. Foreign policy may take a few years to figure out, but he has the economic factor in the bag. Sorry, I know the right-wing media has been telling you Obama is the Antichrist for the last 7+ years, but the facts disagree.
  21. This x1,000,000 If you get booted off of the Cowgirls for character issues, you have some serious problems. I am kind of sad this thread won't be as fun anymore though...
  22. Every week, every season, they come up with a new way to tear your heart out. Doesn't matter who's coaching, who the QB is, the Eagles will always let you down in the same way. It'd be one thing to just stink. You don't expect much when you stink. But the worst thing about being an Eagles fan is hope. They always give you something to be excited about right before they rip the rug out from under you. This is not a good team. Yet how many games have the been blown out in? None. We had a decent chance to win every single one of them. And that's being an Eagles fan in a nutshell.
  23. I did too. Probably cost me the week. Maybe the season.
  24. Picked him up as a handcuff to McFadden, just let him go to grab a defense for the playoffs. I figure if(when) DMac goes down there's no reason to believe CMike will definitely have the starting job, and I have other RBs like Yeldon and Woodhead currently riding the pine just in case.
  25. Luckily for all of us, neither stands a chance in he** of beating Hillary next November.
