Not a problem, and your point doesn't go unnoted.

Thanks ww - Here's my problem with your statement. Like you say, he hasn't taken any rights away but when you say something like that, the conspiracy theorists on here, and there are many, take it and run. The statement has no basis. Maybe there was frustration that caused the statement but the next thing you know, the discussion devolves.

I'm not on here as often as others. I do read the comments and find some are not worth commenting, especially when I see the name calling.

Again thanks for coming back and answering my question.

To further explain my point, I'm not a supporter of the Patriot Act and other such legislation that infringes on someone's personal privacy. Though I do understand its purpose. I'm not against it because I feel I have something to hide, I'm against it because I feel that we're almost being kept 'prisoners in our own home', figuratively speaking.

Enigma - Very valid points; I appreciate the logic.

"ww - specifically, what rights has President Obama taken away?"

Currently none as far as I can tell. I was referring to his desire to extend gun bans, infringe on the 2nd amendment.

Hi premier, Suskind is a Pulitzer Prize winning author.. I offer that as evidence as well as the admission found by googling 16 words.. as well as a document called the Downing st report.. perhaps most notable is the fact that we found no wmd's, did we? But, don't take my word for it.. read the book , it is only then that you can determine the veracity..

Buff, I can write a book stating that the author wasn't there.

Anyone can write a book. Again who is sitting in prison for falsifying information.

"Falsified intelligence to start two wars"

I disagree. Falsified intelligence was used to start the war in Iraq, not Afghanistan. Unless of course you're talking about President Bush pretending to be smart, in which case, I'll give that one to you.

"CHayes, we do not live in a democracy.

You know, we live in a representative republic."

We don't live in a "representative republic", because there's no such thing. We live in a republic, aka a representative democracy, aka a democratic republic (because our head of state is directly elected by the people rather than appointed by representatives parliamentary style.

Get over the fact that the word "democratic" can be used in any way to describe our govt, and grow up.

"Buff it was NOT falsified intelligence, it was faulty intelligence."

What they sent Colin Powell to do at the UN was not "faulty", it was falsification.

Hi premier, nice to hear from you again.. regarding your first comment directed toward me, I reccomend Suskinds The One Percent Doctrine, then I'd be glad to discuss the topic.. regarding your second comment, yep, I'm sure many on the right would call the presidential election a squeaker.. and the Baldwin over Thompson victory, also a squeaker.. ans Warren over Brown, also a close one.. and the Allen West contest was a close one too.. and on and on. Feel free to offer a rebuttal to this rebuttal, something conservatives are getting good at. Or perhaps enough folks could get together and filibuster my comment.. time to eat, great ju jitsu class tonite..

And that "resounding victory"?

Really Buff, winning by 2.5% of the popular vote many would call that a squeaker not a resounding victory.

OH BOY!!!

Buff:"Falsified intelligence to start two wars.. "

Buff it was NOT falsified intelligence, it was faulty intelligence. There is a difference. This intelligence we got was not just ours but it also came from countries around the world.

Was this a global conspiracy?

"Bush had authorization from Congress for both wars."

Are we still looking for the weapons of mass destruction or have they called that off?

A rebuttal to the rebuttal..

Falsified intelligence to start two wars..

Resounding victory by the Demicratic party this past November... Baldwin over Thompson, Warren over Brown, and on and on..

For the third year in a row, a rebuttal to the rebuttal..

Filibustering a defense secretary nominee for the first time in history, one from their own party..

What a laugh the right has become..

CHayes, we do not live in a democracy.

You know, we live in a representative republic. That is the reason for congress and the electoral college....to prevent the majority from tyranny over the minority.

" That would be a democracy, a form of government that the founders found especially distasteful"

That simply not true, or we wouldn't have just voted in an election recently.

Bush had authorization from Congress for both wars.

Obama cannot say the same.

Bush never believed he had the authority to order the death of a US citizen, his son and friend (all US citizens) without any review or due process.

Obama cannot say the same.

Bush's Operation Wide Receiver was immediately shut down when one shipment of firearms was lost.

Obama cannot say the same.

Bush never abandoned a US Ambassador to die by beating, dragging and sodomy while that ambassador begged for help over 7 hour firefight (in which the President was AWOL).

Obama cannot say the same.

All the complaints about Bush that were leveled by liberals are exceeded by Obama.

What a laugh the left has become.
