Humint Events Online: I Really Had Hoped That Obama Would Be Better Than This

I Really Had Hoped That Obama Would Be Better Than This

But he's been a disappointment in many ways--

1) Obama tops Bush at ducking reporters

2) Obama has ordered more drone attacks since taking office than George W. Bush did during his entire two terms October 10

3) Less release of public records under Obama than Bush

4) Obama Is Wasting More on Defense Than Bush

5) Obama Protecting Fewer Endangered Species than Bush

6) Obama invokes Jesus more than Bush

Not to mention, Obama's collapse on health care reform, on closing Guantanamo, his continuation of Bush terrorism policies, his collapse on banking reform, his escalation of the wasteful Afghan war, etc.

I don't miss Bush at all, and I still think Obama was better than McCain, but nonetheless, Obama's been an epic disappointment-- and there are some very creepy PTB/intel aspects to his whole persona.

Spooked,

Please elaborate on why you think "Obama was better than McCain."

Based on what you wrote about O and
boosh, it's difficult to understand
why you would think McCain (or even boosh, for that matter) wouldn't be preferable to the slick guy from Shy town.

ditto nickname!
The "creepy" part fits.
Also, way to cool.
McCain would be refreshing simplicity.

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates delivered a tacit defense of Sunday’s mass killing, stressing that such atrocities had to be accepted as part of war.

“The thing to remember is that we’re at war,”

Drivers for these killing machines are always easy to find in the mix of the human race. Just keep the px well stocked with Bud Lite.

Just think, if Bill C. had been honest about Mommica Lou Inskie, Al and Leslie Gore would have had a better chance of being named weiner of the 2000
election - then Hillary could have had 2008...and NONE of these turruhbull tings would be happenin' right now!

And we could ALL have a V8!

McCain--
1) too old and lame
2) too dumb
3) too obviously opportunistic
4) too obviously a warmonger
5) Sarah Palin

At least there is some pretend with Obama, that he means good, and something mysterious about him. McCain is just a nasty old coot.

I feel better already (and Anacin doesn't upset my stomach!).

Yes, indeedy. Change is gonna do us
all good, and SOON come, too.

Said one to the other: "Have you been through that uh change of life, yet?". "Lord no. I haven't even been through them Obamachanges yet."

A puppet is a marionette, right?

1. Old is not all bad.
2. How can one be too dumb for this job? W. was perfect, in the view of the Rulers, and nothing else matters.
3. How can one be more opportunistic that to abandon all principles (lackey of the Rulers, prostitute) to become anything? McCain had none to abandon.
4. Better to be obvious if one is a warmonger. Forthright.

They all suck, clearly. But it's more like Obama's flavor of shit is somewhat tastier than McCain's and Bush's. Obviously we don't have so many viable choices here and I had hoped for much better. But with Obama, it's mostly just depressing, unlike Bush, where it was seriously painful. I imagine McCain would have been very painful too.
