I am outraged at your dumbass partisan stupidity. The two-party elected 'representative' system has proven to be an unmitigated disaster for the bulk of humanity the 1% are very happy with it,. why do you support them, since you are a lowly worker??

No- Bush did much better than that!
Add to his score
4,000+ Americans
and
100,000+ Iraqis

There you go blming Bush again - you are parroting Obama. How about an individual thought instead.

Obama could have discontinued the war but he didn't and as a result we are now using drones to kill people. If the Obimination discontinued the war we wouldin't be having this dialogue.

It's typical for any person who is over their head in the job they do to blame someone else because of their own failures.

The reason the politicians do it is because it works on the people.

Obama is up to 300 drone strikes, attacking 6 nations in three years.

This is not an Obama/Bush thing, it is a banker owned government that is trying to maintain the #1 spot by whatever means neccesarry.

The USA is not smart enough to compete in the 21st century. And the fact that we are allowing our gov to do this stuff only further proves it.

Why can't people not turn this into repub vs dem??? Bush indefinitely detained people without a trial...tortured...entered wars unconstitutionally....and obama has done the exact same thing with some added assassinations of american citizens....it's all illegal....there is no difference between the left and right anymore. Is your argument that because bush didn't assassinate american citizens and only tortured and detained them that this somehow makes him better than obama?

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

The parties are vastly different. The repubs proudly trumpet the right wing policies that benefit the 1% and hurt the 99%, The Dems speak out for the left wing policies that would benefit the 99%, The dems even mostly vote for the progressive policies we need. However the dems have moved right for 30 years, and they have lost their backbone when confronted by the right wing. So the dems betrayed their left wing principles. OWS can drag the dems back to the progressive left wing. We should certainly try.

[-] 1 points by john23 (-272) 2 years ago

Rhetoric is different...but if you look at what actually occurs from administration to administration.....very little changes. Both is a never ending expansion of governement. Both are shrills for the corporations because of monetary contributions..Take a look at obama and romney....both of their leading campaign contributors are the same....it's a big game to give the illusion of a difference. Now you take the honest politicians no both sides (say Ron Paul and Dennis Kuc)...then you might get some differences

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Leading campaign contributers are the same"? Huh? Repubs= Rove, Koch, Adelson, Hidden 1% bundlers (meeting in Utah). Pres Obama= Most contributions are from under $200 from average Americans. Wall st 1% are giving 90% of their money to repubs. Perhaps we see different numbers but that is what I see. And things change very slowly between admins Yes. Change is almost non existent. But any positive change occurs only when progressive/left wing policies get passed. Our problem is that only right wing policies get passed. (because too many dems betray the 99%). Support OWS. Vote out pro citizens united politicians!

[-] 1 points by john23 (-272) 2 years ago

This is revealed by a quick look at Romney’s top contributors. An Open Secrets page on top Romney contributors reads like a Who’s Who of Wall Street and the financial cartel. The top contributor is Goldman Sachs, followed by Credit Suisse Group, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, UBS, Citigroup, Wells Fargo and Barclays – major players in the Wall Street and City of London bankster constellation.

It is not clear why Mr. Lee opposes Obama – his campaign contributors are almost a carbon copy of Mitt’s. Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan (where Lee worked), Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, USB and many of the same players donated heavily to Obama’s campaign in 2008.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

In 2008 it was clear that the Dems would win and it is true that Candidate Obama got lots of Wall st money. They had to. In order to attempt to influence Pres Obama and the Dems. Did they succeed.? The wall st contributions are the evidence that their money did not influence Pres Obama. "it is not clear why they oppose Obama"? huh? Although repubs obstructed, watered down, and have continued to delay the implementation of the Fin reform, the Pres and the Dems did get something passed. Wall st hates that. That reform is too weak (because of repubs) but still as a result of this dem fin reform, Wall st money is aimed directly against dems/Obama. Does that clarify it for you?

[-] 1 points by john23 (-272) 2 years ago

It was an article....the "it is not clear" thing.

They're both corporately tied to the same people....its a sham.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Wall st money is goin to your boy Mitt. Because they don't like even the weak fin reform Pres Obama and the Dems passed and continue to try to implement. Wall st knows that If Dems had their way the fin reform would be stronger. We (OWS) must pressure every politician not to be influenced by Wall st money and support progressive left wing policies that help the 99%. Support OWS! Vote out anti fin reform politicians!

[-] 1 points by john23 (-272) 2 years ago

I can't stand Mitt Romney...disgusting....he's a model for everything that is wrong with washington....the problem is though...i feel the same way about obama. To me it's not a dem vs repub deal.....i don't have the party blinders on.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

The dems have betrayed their left wing progressive principles. They are as much the problems as the Repubs. But the problem is clearly that we have allowed the right wing policies that help the 1% be implemented. Dems have moved right, and have caved in to the right.

[-] 1 points by john23 (-272) 2 years ago

What right wing policies?

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Anti women, anti gay, anti immigrant, anti minority policies are right wing!

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Cutting the taxes of the wealthy 1%, Cutting regulations for the wealthy 1% corps (fin reg, enviro regs, etc) cutting college aid for the middle class, cutting all programs for the poor! cutting state support for 1st responders/municipal csontruction/education jobs! Subsidizing fossil fuels and cutting/preventing alternative energy investments/jobs. Citizens united/corp personhood,! Policies that hurt the working class 99%, and help the wealthy 1% are right wing.

[-] 1 points by john23 (-272) 2 years ago

Yeah don't agree....the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes....why not cut everyone's taxes?? How does the wealthy steal money from you? What wealthy businessman has ever stolen money from you directly? How do they do it? They do it through government....just like we were talking about above...you got the same campaign contributors on both sides working the system. Business can't steal your money....they earn it...through providing a good product that you vote for everytime you buy something. Government steals your money however...how about Haliburton and guaranteed government contracts that rip off the american people with obsurd overseas costs for the military? How about private contractors getting paid 2-3 times what regular military men and women get overseas - these are tax dollars paying for them...your money. How is this done...through government. The only way a business can forceably steal your money is through government....via corrupt government corporate fusion of business. Start pointing the finger at government and the banking system if you want to explain the separation of wealth in this country.

I agree with you "they (the wealthy 1%) do it through govt". Yeah the pols are bought and sold! They pass all the right wing policies I listed (and more) to facilitate the theft of working class Americans money. Over the last 30 years The wealthy 1% have perpetrated the biggest transfer (theft) of wealth from the middle class to the 1% in all history. They have gotten all laws/right wing policies they wanted claiming it would trickle down and they would be the job creators! instead they moved our jobs overseas, hid their assets overseas to avoid taxes, moved their HQ as well. They have destroyed unions, stolen pensions and crashed the world economy and in the process stole about 40% of our home value. Well, they breached the job creator agreement! We want our money back!. You're right "they do it through govt" Pols are culpable! but they are the tools of the criminal 1% who still have our money. Just follow the money! You wanna know where our home value went? They have it! Lets get it back!

As bad as Obama is, this is one of his greatest triumphs. drone strikes mean no chance of losing a valuable American soldier to take out a subhuman jihadist.

And this has been going on long enough for anyone to know that if you are near a subhuman jihadist, your chances of being blown the F up increase exponentially.

So tuff darts to anyone stupid enough to be close to a subhuman jihadists. Might as well be playing in the cooling tower of a nuclear plant. Darwinism in action!

Pres Obama has ended Bush's illegal Iraq war for oil , Has begun the process of ending Bush's war in Afghan for oil. He has also fought to get us off of foreign oil and into Alt energy, He has ended CIA secret prisons, Has redefined waterboarding as torture and ended torture by the US military, He has ended the fear mongering color coded threat level, he has ended the war mongering "endless war on terror" terminology that the right has perpetrated. instead of starting another 10 yr war with 1/2 a million troops and slaughtering millions of civilians like your repubs, he has used target drone attacks in Yemen (with their approval). I am against the drone attacks but I recognize it represent a vast improvement over the millions slaughter by Nixon,Ford, Reagan, Bush 2. over the decades. He has cut the military and will do so much than any repub. He has minimized and will end the use of mercenary armies. He has tried to stop NDAA, has created a signing statement against it and hasn't challenged the court case that made indef det illegal. What more do you want.? Agitate for specific change! What issue do you care about. in regards to war.? You don't care. You are just a partisan attacking Obama unreasonably.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Obama supported Afghanistan and increased the war when he took office. He also chose to bomb nations Bush didn't even mess with. Let's not forget that Congress voted for war in Iraq as well. There is plenty of blame to go around but yes a majority of it falls on Bush. Clinton and Bush agreed Iraq had WMD's. Bush is a warmonger and a criminal. Obama's administration needs to release the evidence they have that the ACLU is suing for based on the FOIA. But to dismiss Obama for his illegal activities because of how terrible Bush was... no way.

Now we're being told about threatening WMD programs in Iran? Both supported by Romney and Obama.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Dems voted for the war in a betrayal of the left wing principles they espouse and once (decades ago) adhered to. Clinton and others dems betrayed the left countless times when they voted for right wing policies. The dems are more disappointing to me because I expect the repubs to serve the right wing 1%. They trumpet it proudly. The dems are supposed to stand against that as the left wing standard bearer. They haven't because we have been asleep. OWS is awakening the left again. And so it is possible to drag the dems back to the left and make them serve the 99%

Hey VQ, who ended the Vietnam war? Who was responsible for the mass escalation of the Vietnam war? Yes Republicans today are psychos, but OBAMA IS NOT A GREAT PRESIDENT.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

He has begun the long slow process of undoing the endless war on terror, the worst fin collapse in 70years. and made slow progress while the repubs have obstructed, sabotaged, delayed, misused the filibuster and fought every step of the way. He has moved forward in the face of withering criticisn even from his base. The vietname war was ended when the protests forced Nixon to finally recognize he could defeat the vietnamese people. Johnson, and then Nixon excalated the vietnam war. ok?

I don't know how you are calculating death, but you are incorrect. Millions of people did not die under Bush.

Bush was upfront with his military moves while Obama is violating laws and killing people.

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

I am not incorrect. You and I disagree! thats all. How many do you think were slaughtered under Bush? Or do you excuse all Bush's murder while sniping at the limited, transparent, use of our military that has resulted in only dozens killed by Pres Obama? To suggest that Bush was "upfront" after the lies, and deceit he used to drag the world into illegal, unnecessary war of choice betrays your republican partisanship. So We are gonna disagree.

I am not condoning the Iraq war, I was against it. I don't think however, it was lies. They believed there were WMDs there and the intelligence supported it. There is evidence however, that they also wanted to take out a "bad guy" While I am completely against that idea, I completely understand it. Why was this war illegal, whose law did Bush break?

Were there millions killed in Iraq? I have not seen any credible study showing that. "dozens killed by Obama", well accoridng to the US military the US casualty rate has multiplied 5 times since Obama has taken over.

And you refuse to address his killing of US citizens by drones? This is clearly illegal under US law while Bush broke no US law going into Iraq.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Your defense of Bush's slaughter of millions in his illegal war clearly places you in opposition of my views. Why waste our time? It was illegal because the so called "evidence" was fabricated. US casualty rates are non existant outside Bushs wars! The wars by the way that Pres Obama ended (Iraq) and started the ending (Afghan). Killed US citizen? Which one? The Al Queda spokesman in Yemen trying to recruit Americans to kill our citizens? Or his son that the Al queda guy used as a human shield when he put him in harms way.? Which one are you defending?

[-] -2 points by Krowell (-69) 2 years ago

There have been more than two but the killing of American citizend without due process is clearly illegal.

Sorry Charlie, Bush didn't kill millions and the war was not illegal. Obama, who prides himself on being a constitutional scholar, is violating the constitution all over the place. The issue with Holder is just par for the course.

No, you prefer to lie. You lie about everything. I asked you for proof that milions of people were klled by recent Republican Presidents and you could not.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

more meaningless insults. I associate the tactics of personal destruction as a right wing tactic. Even if you disagree with my estimates of death over the last 40 years you can';t honestly believe our dozens killed with drone strikes compares at all with the many wars we've been involved. So the number is not really relevant! The relevant fact is that the US under Pres Obama is killing much fewer people than we have since before WWII. That is an improvement. I may be against the drone attacks. and protest against them. but I can't pretend for you that our current limited, careful efforts are worse than the past.

[-] -1 points by delayedgrat (-157) 2 years ago

Yes, accurate numbers are relevant. please be truthful or youwont be insulted. Throwing out untruthful numbers justmmakes you look stupid.

more insults.! To compare the current limited, careful use of military force to the previous decades of reckless slaughter is dishonest. It clearly reflects your right wing partisan leanings. Your attempting to equate this Presidents minimal military use to the excessive force of the past in order to minimize previous Repub crimes, and exaggerate this Presidents much improved responsible and restrained use.

And we are not even touching on the collateral killings that occur that are being categorized incorrectly. Men who are bystanders are siad to be combatants.

If Bush did this, you would be calling for his impeachment.
