Just for fun I enjoy pointing out the ridiculousness of the Right wing claims about Pres Obama being a secret Muslim terrorist socialist atheist trying to destroy America.  Sadly I live in Texas where the majority actually believe this crap.The facts are that he is more far right than any president in History IMHO. Here's the truth about whats really happening.  As always the rights wings response will be pathetic to non existent.

DISPATCHES FROM AMERICA
Is Barack Obama morphing into Dick Cheney?
By Michael T Klare


Cheney's world
Through his speeches, Congressional testimony, and actions in office, it is possible to reconstruct the geopolitical blueprint that Cheney followed in his career as a top White House strategist - a blueprint that President Obama, eerily enough, now appears to be implementing, despite the many risks involved.

That blueprint consists of four key features: 1. Promote domestic oil and gas production at any cost to reduce America's dependence on unfriendly foreign suppliers, thereby increasing Washington's freedom of action.

2. Keep control over the oil flow from the Persian Gulf (even if the US gets an ever-diminishing share of its own oil supplies from the region) in order to retain an "economic stranglehold" over other major oil importers.

3. Dominate the sea lanes of Asia, so as to control the flow of oil and other raw materials to America's potential economic rivals, China and Japan.

4. Promote energy "diversification" in Europe, especially through increased reliance on oil and natural gas supplies from the former Soviet republics of the Caspian Sea basin, in order to reduce Europe's heavy dependence on Russian oil and gas, along with the political influence this brings Moscow.

Not sure if his philosophies are as rightwing as they seem, or if he is just easily convinced by rightwingers "advising" him.....a distinction without a difference.   Liberalism is pretty much over in America and it'll take another 60s type revolution to bring even the most moderate form of liberalism back, sorry to say.  Howard Dean was probably the last best hope, since someone like Chomsky could not win election.

Well, someone like Hitler, someone like Mao, someone like Stalin couldn't win in THIS country, either...we are about democracy, not tyrrany.


 


The left is at this point frothing at the mouth in their obsession to silence anyone and everyone who doesn't believe as it (the Borg-like left) does, "assimilate or be eliminated", the main idea---an idea rich in the mind of zealots of any "religion"...

Yah, that's right, Chomsky has no chance---since he is a total idiot, that demonstrates the sensibilities of the American voter.

I  think that it is the Neo Cons advising him rather than any other rightist or leftist thing.    I know that Neo Con needs no party affiliation just an allegience to the war profiteers.    The MIC is so entrenched I do not know if it will ever be neutered,     job creator and all that, too big to topple.    You can just as easily put Hilliary or Nancy or Boehner or Dick Cheney in the party of Neo Con.      Incredibly the bottom line of the  armament line is also considered and is included.    What good is a bomb or du bullets and bunker busters if you don't use em so you can make more.


The whole subject becomes murky and impossible to clear because  the Neo Con crowd is bipartisan and our President is just as enamored of the new drone toy as the last one and for sure the next one.      

Bush's "de-Bathification program" eliminated all vestiges of Sunni power in Iraqi society and set the stage for the Sunni insurrection against American occupation and the new Shiite-led government. Bush disbanded the entire Sunni-dominated Iraqi Army and bureaucracy. He didn't change it. He didn't make it more inclusive of Shiites and Kurds. He just disbanded it. It is no accident that two of the top commanders of today's ISIL are former commanders in the Saddam-era Iraqi military.

You miss the point entirely. The Left has no power. The right pretends the left exists and is a threat. The right is clearly delusional. The Left is pretty much aware that he is not a liberal and they are not happy with his actions like the boondoggle for the insurance industry called Obamacare. The right Interprets the unhappiness of the left as approval of the right.


This isnt being discussed in the so called Mainstream liberal media. Your science fiction fantasy referances to the Left are as far from the real world as any episode of Star trek.

all you have to do is observe Obama and his evil twin Vilsack not only in bed with Monsanto but they have the silk sheets, karma sutra oil and a feather up their ass just like the last one did and the one to come.      the left and right are in it together and they are all the same if you look at their client list.
