    To be fair, the Bullshit Quotient is probably around 65%/35% Right/Left.

    According to your opinion, on a topic that cannot possibly be quantified. You're winding us up now, right? You cannot be serious.

    Almost all the social sciences are dominated by people left-of-center, this definitely includes economics.

    That is a survey of applied economics researchers, not econ students or professional economists. Any survey of academics will skew left. This is also a comparison between two people, not ideologies.

    That's because Republicans are more terrified of having a black president than having a president who enrages the entire 1st world and enforces the Patriot Act upon innocent citizens.

    To the best of my knowledge, Barack Obama is still doing that. He's not even stopping the illegal wiretaps. He really sucks.

    ajblaise isn't technically posing a biased opinion. He's not posing any opinion. By stating the facts, it's sort of undeniable, I'd think?
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Wow yeah I read about that. That's pretty lame.

    While I must agree that it's going to be a very long time before any US president as bad as Bush comes to power again, I think you've made rather an unfair generalization about Republicans here. The fact that most anti-black racists are Republicans is not in any way indicative of any significant portion of Republicans being racist or afraid of a black president. (Ironically, this "most Xs are Ys therefore most Ys must also be Xs" fallacy is the exact same argument used for racial profiling, which I now must wonder if you support.)

    P.S.,
    Do they revoke your NFP card if you badmouth Obama?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    He ended the torture/enhanced interrogation policies, possibly the largest complaint against Bush-era policy. Also, he's only 6 months in, and too pragmatic to change military and homeland security policy all at once.

    No excuses. We didn't give Bush any, and Obama won't get any, either.
