I'm kind of beginning to dislike him. His flip-flopping about gay marriage probably did the trick. Once he got the votes, he backed out of making history for the LGBT community.
He is making history, He is still talking about it, and saying Gay and Lesbian in big speeches, which is more than any other president in history has done. The economy is a more pressing issue at the moment. I believe he will come around with gay issues.Don't believe the hype that is negative about him from the conservative news programs(ie the most imbalanced and egregious Fox news). They would like to distract us all by painting a negative picture, becuase he is about to try and work on Health care. I can't remember the last president to try. i think Hillary was the last one to take a stab at it, and she was severely attacked for it. HELLO, our current system doesn't work.He's a better president than our last one hands down, and he's busy trying to clean up Bushies mess. I'm just relieved to have a confident well spoken president, as apposed to that cocky d*#khead that we suffered for 8 years.As for I HEART HUCKABEES....I really love that film.
I want to have sex with Naomi Watts.
I knew this was going to be a bad idea when I read the post's title...Can we please just stick to film? This is the one place I come to NOT hear about all the crap that is going on in the world.
Boo hoo, Jordan Wellin. Your life sounds so hard.
"He is making history, He is still talking about it, and saying Gay and Lesbian in big speeches,"Yeah, stroking us for cash with one hand and throwing us under the bus with the other. An old Democratic trick. Ask Hillary and Bill about that one. If he gives a damn, why does Robert Gibbs treat gay issues like the plague? BiPartisanship is a nice polite term for pandering to religious bigots."which is more than any other president in history has done."That's impressive? It's 2009 and he can finally bring himself to admit that we don't deserve to be put to persecuted. Oh thank you for your mercy, dear leader."He's a better president than our last one hands down"Yes, Dick Cheney was a horrific chief executive. His Texan lackey was even worse."I'm just relieved to have a confident well spoken president"I support Obama, but there's more to a leader than confidence and erudition. Sorry for treating your thread like it's the HuffPost comments section, Nat.Anyway, Huckabees. Why have I not seen this? Lily Tomlin rocks my world, so I probably should get cracking on that. This'll probably be the first flick I rent form the Undergrad once school starts again.
I'm watching West Side Story
I just hope to god that this Universal Health Care crap doesn't pass.You would have an overflow by the thousands at each hospital and emergency rooms would fill up and it would take 5 times as long to get seen by a doctor.This is ridiculous. And now he's planning on taxing the middle class? He's insane. I just wish McCain didn't pick Palin. He would have been an amazing President.
I agree about the Health Care, Cal. President Obama has no idea what he is getting our country into. My aunt said it best a few days ago when she said "[Obama's] like Eva Peron. And Argentina hasn't even fully recovered."
The whole Obama-thing is a bit overblown I think. I'm not American, so I have an outsider's perspective. But it seems to me that everyone was in a delusional haze after his win. i would have voted for him, but unlike Oprah I wouldn't claim that salvation has come. He's in office, but he has a lot to live up to. Which is also why I find it weird that a lot of Americans ofter refer to their country as the greatest country in the world. If I tried to pass my country (Belgium) off as the greatest country in the world, my compatriotes would ridicule me to say the least. We have a lot of good things, we have a lot of problems, but we don't have unconditional patriotism, which seems to blind a lot of political commentators in America.
I usually refuse to enter any discussion on American politics, but from a European point of view, it's really beyond my comprehension why so many Americans reject the idea of Universal Health Care. You know, many European countries have it and we haven't extinguished ourselves waiting for medical care.
Iggy, you're so right. I still laugh at Bill O'Reilly's ominous question: Do we really want to turn America into Sweden? And I'm like, uh, Sweden is among the happiest and most prosperous nations on earth. Oh, the horror of buying only one car instead of fifty.
Favorite film presidents:1) Merkin Muffley "Dr. StrangeLove"2) Max Frost "Wild in the Streets"3) President Zod "Superman II"
yeah i don't get american fear over a happier and healthier nation either.but it comes down to american greed and the very unbrotherly concept that it's EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF and that health care is something you should only be able to get if you're wealthy and all of that.it's VERY weird.and the misinformatino that everyone buys into about other countries (american's pay more for healthcare and get less for their money and die sooner) is really just kind of embarrassing.having gone to an emergency room in scandinavia and having gone to an emergency room in new york there was a world of difference in how fast i was treated. and the winner for speed and efficiency was NOT the country that americans pretend it was in their "america is #1" fever that clouds any real discussion / problem solving about how we can better our country.
@ Nathaniel: I'm intrigued. Care to tell us why you had to go the emergency room in Scandinavia, and which country were you in? :-P
For those of you that don't think we have serious issues in our current healthcare system that need to be addressed (i.e. out of control rising premiums for people with chronic conditions, pre-existing condition exemptions in insurance policies, and the fact that we're footing the bill for worldwide R&D costs)...I've got a bridge over here in Atlanta I can probably sell you...
The American health care system sounds frightening. Canadians don't lose their life savings if they get stricken with disease. I've never had an issue with Canada's health care system, and apparently ours is no where near as good as some European ones.
Obama is but one man. He can't solve every single problem for every single person, group, minority and party right this second. Gawd. People will never be happy with whoever is running their country. And I say that as someone is completely dissatisfied with the man I elected into office. I just keep repeating "at least it wasn't the other guy!"
