Maybe if this paranoid failing administration didnt focus on division, blame, deflection, and corruption we would not be in the economic dump that we are. Is this what you expected when you voted for this loser?

The President has demonized conservatives and Republicans since Day 1 of his admininstration. So all his drones are doing the work that he can wash his hands of. Dark times ahead.

"This Administration also puts forward a false choice between the liberties we cherish and the security we demand. I will provide our intelligence and law enforcement agencies with the tools they need to track and take out the terrorists without undermining our Constitution and our freedom. That means no more illegal wire-tapping of American citizens. No more national security letters to spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime. No more tracking citizens who do nothing more than protest a misguided war. No more ignoring the law when it is inconvenient. That is not who we are. And it is not what is necessary to defeat the terrorists. The FISA court works. The separation of powers works. Our Constitution works. We will again set an example for the world that the law is not subject to the whims of stubborn rulers, and that justice is not arbitrary. This Administration acts like violating civil liberties is the way to enhance our security. It is not."..barack obama August 2007
