You’ve got something there...Think of this..all the ‘King’ needs is a Constitutional Convention and that 22nd Amendment will be gone,along with the 2nd Amendment...All he needs is another crisis—such as a certain Middle Eastern country getting nuked and war breaks out between countries. Guaranteed the ‘King’ will declare martial law, suspend the Constitution, then amend it via Congressional approval (unconstitutional) using the War Powers Act or some other ruse and we have our dictator for life hoisting the red flag over the Castle...

I can hardly believe we speak of Obama as a president. He’s not worthy, hasn’t earned the title, and will NEVER be the CIC of our military. Oh, he has it on paper, but our military knows what needs to be done. Our Military knows they take their orders from their superiors. And Bambi isn’t on their list. Thank God, and praise our Military. God Bless my Son In Law, Sarge, 3 tours in Iraq, going to Afghanistan, My daughter, Specialist, one tour in Iraq. And to all the other military families, we pray for you, God Bless!

Our founding fathers realized we needed the 2nd amendment against oppressive government. The 2nd will never be gone, no judge or court will lend credence to it, and is the meat of the constitution. Perhaps the 2nd should have been the first; without the second, the first is in jeopardy. Why do you think ammo sales and gun sales have been a boon this past year? The libs are kidding themselves if they think they will ‘rule’ the Americans. Sorry, we won’t let it happen, revolution, freedom,liberty is stronger than any government ‘freebie’ program. This is the democrats last stand, for now. Freedom will prevail now.

Yes, God bless you and your wonderful family members for their service to our great country. I totally agree, I can never speak of him as president, but can easily speak of him as an enemy of the State. We’ll all stick together and have our country back soon, when we throw these swines out of office. Great post, thanks!

You left out -- has not qualified.

How is your lovely daughter? I remember following her when she first went in and the awesome pics you posted from Iraq.

Silly story.....

My kid, during basic training had to clean the drill sargeant’s ‘room’. There was a wall of presidental photos, it went from Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Bush. Yes, you figured it out. And I’m sure 44 will be missing in many rooms. Our military has their special way of protesting.

Thank you, it was special for me to post that series of threads about my daughter. She’s good, married to a sarge, and just had their 2nd child. He’s deploying to Afghanistan soon. We are so proud of our kids. I should repost those stories from Iraq sometime. I’m not boasting, but, she took some awesome photos from Iraq. Thanks again, they were popular threads.

It amazes me how soon people forget. I acually prefer a Reagan type leader. One who can act on the world stage without getting us in an endless war. He did use military power sparingly and wisely. He built up our strength. He pulled the plug on many of the corks stopping our economy. Reagan was smart in spite of the name calling leveled at him by the left.

Bush renegged on his promise to not get into nation building, his promise to fix social security, and a promise to control spending. He invited millions of illegals to America by neglecting enforcement. I recall he put border guards in jail.

It amazes me just how many on FR are pining for the one that gave us to our present leader.

As you may remember I am a huge supporter of our military!
I've never been so worried about our men and women in uniform as I am now with that usurper in the People's House.
Prayers for yours and all those willing to serve at this perilous time. (not the wars, the usurper)

I’m not boasting

Why not! You have every right to do so. We enjoy our military moms and dads boasting and keeping us informed. So please...BOAST! ;*)

I miss the good old days when the Republicans were screwing up the country.

I think the best we can hope for is gridlock. Reagans only come around every hundred years or so.

Just because a person correctly recognizes W as a terrible president, and the person who opened the door for the most liberal member of the Senate to follow him, doesn't mean he likes Obama.

The man loved his country, supported the military, and managed to keep us from getting blown up since 9/11. At least adults were running the country.

Let’s see how the illegal situation, the spending and the stock market are working out in a year or so.

It amazes me how some people can twist everything so horribly.

Reagan ... One who can act on the world stage without getting us in an endless war.

Yeah...he simply ignored repeated terrorist attacks against our troops, interests and civilians overseas.
You may recall 241 Marines were murdered while they slept in Lebanon.
Then again, we were not attacked on our own soil during his tenure, so no need to wage an "endless" war.
An endless war that was continuously waged against us for 21 years until there was ONE man, ONE leader, that had the guts to stand up and say ENOUGH!

Bush renegged on his promise to not get into nation building,

That was during the 1999-2000 campaign season...BEFORE WE WERE ATTACKED ON OUR OWN SOIL ON 9-11, killing 3000 within a little more than an hour.

I suppose you think we should have gone in and got out like Clinton and Bush 41 did? That worked out real well for both of them, didn't it? Leave a vaccum and it will be filled! THINK!

his promise to fix social security,

HE TRIED!!!
Perhaps this will "refresh" your memory.
Or better yet...
this one from a damn republican!
Then there is this one...

Please note the dates and enjoy this great photo to help you recall.
RATS w/ FDR statue


and a promise to control spending.

He controlled spending as best he could. He was PRESIDENT not a member of CONgre$$ who are the ones that control the purse strings.
He said he would cut the deficit in half within 5 years and he did...except it only took him 3.5 years.
Again, perhaps a picture will explain it better.
Projected Deficits

And PLEASE do not refer to TARP last fall. You people that STILL do not understand what happened, or refuse to see, have grown tiresome.

He invited millions of illegals to America by neglecting enforcement.

Oh hell...President George W. Bush did not invite them in, they have been flooding into the country since the flood gates were opened in 1986 when they were granted the one and only AMNESTY ever given.
1986...Amnesty...figure it out!

As Kristinn says here...
with President Bush, more has been done to secure the borders and reform our immigration system than under any other president.
...it should be recognized that our borders have always been open and illegal immigration has been a problem that has not been adequately addressed by presidents for decades since President Eisenhower's Operation Wetback.

I recall he put border guards in jail.

Again, he was the President. I didn't like that any more than anyone else, but he allowed the system to operate. He did get them out before he left office.

So do I miss him yet? YOU BET I DO!!!

How on earth did I miss this gem?

It amazes me just how many on FR are pining for the one that gave us to our present leader.

President George W. Bush had nothing to do with the current usurper in the white hut.

Folks like you, with your constant snipping and repeating the rats talking points ad nauseum,
and McCain and his gang of RINOs stabbing President Bush in the back,
and the total lack of spine from the republicans to stand up to the damn commie demonRATS when they repeatedly pulled their crap including committing treason,
and ACORN and the criminal enterprise that is Obama/Soros...

THAT IS WHAT GAVE US THE CURRENT resident.
