    What actions and legislation say he is,
    and what actions and legislation say he is not.

    And if he was white would we come to the same conclusions?

    A person who conserves. But the question is what is being conserved?

    peace

    To answer your question..Nothing, it's rather the opposite. Everything is rapidly being taken away with a smile and a piece of chicken or hamburger chewing photo op!

    He's a socialist-leaner forced to be a conservative.


    The president doesn't run Warsh, lobbyist do.
    And lobbyist are always conservative because they are people hired to rep the interest of those who have money, corporate interest, and support capitalism.
    And as was said, capitalism and socialism doesn't go together so our dear pres if forced to choose one over the other.

    Guess which one?

    would you plan to go into a job knowing you would be forced to do something against your moral standards?

    I don't blame him, I really think he thought he could make a difference and he tried. He's still trying.


    I didn't vote for him, wasn't that much into his inauguration but as time goes on I'm beginning to appreciate Obama and he gets a little bit more of my respect. I'm really sorry he's being pushed against a wall and compromise on his integrity. He's a good pres but he's not given the benefit to do his job properly because all these gotdarn stupid white folks and uncle tom negroes won't let the man be and stop fighting against the good he's trying to do.

    In answer to your question Ankhur, yes I would. Either I stand up and everybody hates me but I stand firm on my principles, or I fall and compromise on my integrity. Either way... I will have tried to make a difference and that would be the reason I would take that position (any position, not just pres).


    You know they say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, but should we still stop trying to do good intentions? I should say not.

    Obama has earned my respect.
