No I didn't. First off, I do have issues with the current Administration. Just not to the degree I did with the last one. And if I were on this board more often you would probably know what they are. I have mentioned a couple briefly before I took my hiatus.
That said, the reason I'm not here as much is because the level of discourse has really gone south. I wouldn't mind talking about how I think Obama hasn't done enough about gas prices or Gitmo. Or how he compromised way too much his first four years. Or how he hasn't delivered on a lot of things liberals elected him to do. Or how he got played on health care. Or how I'm torn about his drone policy.
And there are issues that I side with conservatives on for the most part. Immigration, gun rights, among other things. I am a fiscal conservative. I just believe in investing at home and not nation building oversees. I just believe in a social safety net as opposed to corporate welfare.
That said, every thread seems to turn into a birther level irrational hate thread where reasonable discourse isn't even possible. If you don't agree with the nutbags they pollute the thread beyond recognition.
I may be a hypocrite but my not showing up to join in the Obama bashing threads isn't what makes me one.
