    I Don't get it, we see Americans making fun of Bush the whole, claiming he's stupid and incompetent..

    I mean who voted for him, was it not the majority of Americans, (the same people that call him stupid today?)

    and not just once but TWICE

    I don't care how much he got, he still got the majority of votes.

    Well, not everyone did? Even if they did vote him in, doesn't mean they could foresee every decision he was going to make, so that doesn't make them hypocritical for then calling him stupid afterwards.

    Plenty of students voted for Nick Clegg but now view him as incompetent - this doesn't make them hypocrites, opinions are allowed to change.

    That still leaves a minority of 60m voters. Presumably his biggest critics are within this group (numbering the population of the UK)

    They're going to hate Obama so much worse than Bush when his time is over.

    Surprised America is making a big deal about how he's been doing the opposite of what he promised?

    Quite a lot of people didn't vote for him, the ones who did probably didn't think he was stupid/didn't care.

    Obama was handed a disaster and he's slowly doing his best to transform it back into a country.

    Already he's delivered as best he could (hampered by uncooperative Republicans) on health care reform, and he made the only real viable choice regarding the situation in Irak and Afghanistan.

    He's also made a big move towards maintenance of federal infrastructure and green technology was strongly supported in his stimulus package.

    He's done a fairly good job considering, when the economy swings round his approval ratings will climb again.

    No his system is set to fail. Because he's being told what to do by elite bankers/ the bilderberg group.

    American Presidency works like this:
    - There'll be a standard president, who will seem fine at the beginning.

    - But eventually people will realize what they are trying to implement or have done, goes against their wishes.

    - This president turns into the enemy, and becomes mocked or ridiculed.

    - A new president is selected based on his charm, and ability to make good speeches.

    And that's what Obama was, handsome, young and charming, all this crap about change had all fooled he won't do ****.

    He said he would bring the troops back, and what does he do? Send off 30, 000. American government is corrupt atm.

    You can't be a rational human being and believe in the Bilderberg group. I suppose the freemasons are somehow to blame too?

    I've already given examples of things he has done, so your argument falls through.

    I think your core ideas about big business having too much power and democracy being corrupted are sound but you've pushed it from reasoned consideration into the much more hostile terrain of crackpot conspiracy theories.

    What makes it irrational? Especially as it has known members, and even Obama has acknowledged them, as well as the Council for Foreign Relations. Don't see what freemasons have to do with this.

    By that logic so should yours, because I've suggested examples of what he has failed to do.

    That's your opinion, I didn't even scratch the surface on it's corruption tbh. No point in trying, once one has got their solid views, only they themselves can change it.
