    1. ENEMIES LIST

    * Hard on condemning their critics (especially Rush Limbaugh).

    * Soft on condemning radical Islamic terrorism (even to the point that Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary avoids the term, preferring “man-caused disasters”).

    2. TERRORISM

    * Hard on closing the Guantanamo Bay prison by the end of the year and halting tough interrogation procedures.

    * Soft on explaining what will happen if released terrorists do more harm at home or abroad and also explaining how easing up on captured terrorists helps prevent future attacks that are as bad as or worse than September 11, 2001.

    3. MIDDLE EAST

    * Hard on demands on Israel (asking it to make even more concessions to its enemies).

    * Soft on pressuring the Palestinians, the Iranians and those who want to see Israel destroyed.

    4. TAXES

    * Hard on increasing taxes on those who pay the most (while assuming their commercial behavior won’t be affected by confiscations of their wealth).

    * Soft on justifying why more money should be given to those who pay little or no taxes (while assuming they’ll paid back for “spreading the wealth around” by voting for Democrats).

    5. GOVERNMENT

    He did force Pakistan to step up or we would continue the drone bombings. And as for rush, he wants the president to fail so that's a little more than a critic and I have only heard Obama use his name ones. And that was sarcasm...

    I haven't heard of any of the prisoners being released and contrary to his conservative critics, he has months to figure out what to do with the detainees. One thing they keep omitting, we have secret CIA prisons in secret places that might receive secret midnight guest without us knowing. One day we'll just notice Guantonomo is empty.

    It does appear Obama favors Biden suggestion of two states. In order for that to happen Israel will have to make concessions. I don't know enough to say if that is good or bad. He has been tough on Iran. He certainly got that reporter released in less time than Carter did with the hostages.

    I think that's the point, those who have the most might pay the most in actual dollars but in percentage of income they don't pay the most. The middle class pays more percentage wise than the rich. What Obama is doing is closing the loopholes which should even the score... For people so worried about the deficit and how much debt we leave future generation I would think this is a good thing... He is trying to pay for his spending.
