Can you show that fewer Muslims have been killed or displaced under Obama's rule? Your argument that you voted for "the lesser of two evils" is poor and illogical. You aren't better than millions of Americans who chose not to vote. You could have exercised the right not to vote, and you wouldn't have lost your rights/status, your job, your citizenship, your grants/scholarships (if you're a student), etc. SMH.Ismahan123 wrote:The way I see it, I voted for the lesser of two evils. In any gov't or adminstration, innocent civilians will suffer and be killed. That is a given. However, had McBush and Pig lipstick ( who mind you, couldn't handle the affairs of Alaska let alone be the VP of USA) took office, we would've probably bigger mess than Bush left and far more distruction in their hands than Obama will wish to do in his time in office entirely.
Your argument is utterly absurd. As a citizen, it important to exercise ones right to vote. That is the single most determinant factor of how policies can be changed and attitudes as well. its a citizen's responsiblity both personally and to the country. The fact that Obama has cultivated himself as willing and determined to develope relationship with muslim countries, close Gitmo, emphasis the importance of cross cultural/religious understanding is what I find attractive in his policies. And for you to seek analytical data or proof that the Obama adminstration is far worst than Bush's is illogical. How can you compare a 6 months span of time to that of eight long years? For us to see any substantial difference, we need to give the new adminstration more time, atleast a year. For now, the rhetoric is different, the rest will hopefully come in due time.
