Democrats in 2016...
Lot of you are up against Obama, coz he was shown as a pathetic liar, didn't keep up with what he said he would do, or just coz he's taking out extra taxes from your income or taxing u up( if you are a business owner) lot than before, whatever the reasons are, well you are bunch of brainwashed sheeps. Before you even think of giving out your hula hoop logic to me, shove that up your rear and stfu. I don't consider spending my time arguing with folks who have done nothing good than sitting on the couch and watching foxnews. I'm not gonna change my stand. Just listen up, that he is not allowed to do whole lot of things that he wanted to do-courtesy-your major conservative morons. All he wants to do is to help middle class and poor family. What the fck is wrong with that? Some call him Robinhood, he taxes riches and provide healthcare to poor. If you can't swallow that, then I've nothing against that, just don't argue selfishly. Some of you are excited to have your family back in Nepal to be here soon, republican era, you'd have to wait decades. Things have changed now, thanks to immigration reform brought in by Obama administration. There are hundreds of other examples you would know if you go in real world and talk to people than sitting in your office, taking sip of coffee and agreeing with your republican overlord who probably are showing you sheeps that how bad Obama is and that you could lose jobs if you support Obama. Seriously, if these are the reasons you are hating on him, you are just mere sheeps. Bow down to your repub overlords.

What makes the "disappointment" argument even more irritating is that it's simply not true. He's done nearly everything we elect a president to do, and he dd it all with little support from the left, and massive obstruction from the right. .

Is he perfect? No, he's human. Does he deserve some criticism? At this point, it really doesn't matter.

What does matter is that this president has compiled a STELLAR record. If you can look at this list of the president's accomplishments after three years, and not be excited, you have a serious problem with perspective.

Pass this list around to everyone you know. And don't be afraid; unlike many such lists, every item includes a link to a citation supporting it.

Thank you bittertruth for your very own facts and opinions. Your piece was well thought out and nicely listed, and not at all plagiarized from http://pleasecutthecrap.com/obama-accomplishments/

Such a great political discussion here. Why don't more American politicians seek advice from you folks rather than hiring consultants? I am mind blown with the amount of wisdom in this thread.

sexy in sari? only four blacks? They're still in minority. Well rest are all whites I guess. What's the reason being a racist, but again seeing your logic in other threads, I'm very much admiring your conscience and reasoning. Keep it up.

and, the other daft, who is addressing me and who addressed me on some other thread, I had no intention to exchange words with you, but if shit fly keep naggin me while strolling down the road, I must do something. after all, attention seeking wh-o-re in DA ZONE needs to be f**ked gently. Lemme do that.

First off, this is the exact phrase from verses above
"Pass this list around to everyone you know. And don't be afraid; unlike many such lists, every item includes a link to a citation supporting it. " If you can read, it doesn't say anywhere not to share it.

I wanted to attribute but for some reason Sajha anti-spam policy kicked in and my post was held on for review. And then, realized, sajha doesn't even allow link shorteners and that's pretty understandable as those are abused by spammers. So, I had to manually remove all links. Now I thought I had it all and actually indicated source link at the bottom of it, but just saw that the damn thing didn't even paste all.

But anyway, shit fly can go back to shit to flounder about.

Well, here is the FACT.

George W. Bush. 

National Security Advisor:  Condoleeza Rice - Black
State Dept:    Collen Powell - Black  ( first -African-American on that position)
Justice Dept:   Alberto Gonzalez ( name says it all) ..Mexican ( He was the First Hispanic to serve WH)
Homeland  :   M. Chetoff  ( Israel ) 

wait...Condoleeza Rice was also appointed as Secretary of State..she was the FIRST African-American  woman on that position. 

NOW all these things happened when Republican was in Office..Now you tell me who is Racist.

If you make more than 100K a year = Go Reps
else Go Dems.

But with the life experience I have had in the USA (~5yrs),  IMHO, I can never like Dems for their commie like policy (Give the poor so that they will be lazy). This does not imply I like Republicans (Suck out of all poor faggots)

But, I agree that Dems leaders are really smart. They have this large number of amigos, niggas and brownies that are growing exponentially in numbers every year through tunnels, containers and oh well in jails as well. And they come on streets saying we dont want laws made by whites.

Gotta laugh at those mofos who think themselves as a higher level of human than the blacks here.
Your first class citizenship from the third world is less important than the third class citizenship of the the first world. Yes Blacks are little behind as a group in this country but they are way ahead of the tribe you belong to.

And for you all brown face ignorants...don't think the whities like you better because you are lighter than the blacks. I know some of you assume the lightness of your face to a superiority but to a whitey you are still trash. He is not going to give you more importance because you are little more lighter than the blacks.

If the republican whitey had his way he would love to send you back the the filth you came from in a heart beat.

Every one forgets their Roots, it's been century for them. How about new American citizens from Nepal,  they will follow Donald Trump and agree on Big wall.
