Soro's the new Cheney?

This is not good publicity for the Obama presidency.

Oh, right, because of the eating babies allegation? Or supporting weekend furloughs for pedophiles?

Seriously, what's the problem here? Obama has said that he will take ideas from anyone as long as they are good ideas. This is a liberal think tank. If they come up with good ideas, then that's fantastic.

Besides the fact I think Soro's is a scumbag, I guess it is no difference than religious right advising Bush, et. al. But I do recall there being an outcry about whom the Bush and Company consulted and now I see shades of the Dems doing the same thing. So some may say turn about is fair play, or what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Seems a bit like when so many libs cried and whined over special interest associations that Bush had and it was such a bad thing, now they are doing the same thing. I thought this election was about CHANGE. I guess not.

You seemed to miss the main point I was making. Obama has said that he will take ideas from anyone as long as they are good ideas. He's even soliciting your ideas, merc.

ThinkProgress are a bunch of ultra-partisan douche nozzles. They don't look for good ideas, they look for ideas that will fuck the opposition.

Let's make it 8 years! At some point you would think other parts would atrophy when you use your bitch muscle too much!

Soros thrives on disorder! Everything he is involved in has a financial gain FOR HIM at the end. I think its good that Obama is getting input from many different sources, but this source isn't so good.

Actually it is more like if Bush were to take advice from Swift Boaters for Truth, than Heritage Foundation. And I don't believe he took advice from either group. So how is this change. Sounds like a huge double standard to me.

So you basically could care less that some ultra left wing organization is advising them, ok, I got that. Who cares as long as we fuck the other guys, that is what really counts? Hey let's really fuck the opposition and see if we can get them to cooperate with us! Becareful what you wish for....

Merc - you gotta realize that is the D's view of what Bush et all did for far too long... and then some. The pendulum is swinging the other way.

Oh my god it's deja vu all over again! The tactics (take out left and add right) and the sniveling.

Keep working on it fella. Even a blind hog will find an acorn. It might take you a while. 8 years, probably.

Merc--YOU be careful of what YOU wish for, ya hear?

You sure are whiney for a guy who didn't vote for McCain. And if you didn't vote for McCain, how could you possibly be this upset? No one else had a chance between the two. Now, who'd you vote for? Nader? No, most likey Skeletor.

Sniveling? Yea, just heard 8 years of it. Why don't you want to discuss the issue?
