  • "I am never happy when Mr. Obama makes a fool of himself"

    I stopped reading here. I'm not even going to rebut the rest of the post. This comment of yours makes whatever you say after it lose all validity.

    How do you expect someone to read your past comments and then believe that?

    Dog faced lie. This is ridiculous.

  • "I stopped reading here." now have the qualifications to be a Liberal Senator and can pass any health care bill.

    "Conservatives hate Obama more than they love America." -Jon Stewart.

    So many replies to choose from here...since comedians help guide your political position, why choose only one?

    "Those are my principles. If you don't like them I have others." - Groucho Marx

    "I get no respect. The way my luck is running, if I was a politician I would be honest." - Rodney Dangerfield

    "In America, anyone can become president. That's the problem." - George Carlin

    Congrats to you too, now have the qualifications to vote like a Liberal.

    All these quotes (like yours) have two things in common. They were made by comediens...and they got a laugh.

  • "A laugh was all I was going for"

    At the risk of boosting your ego...that's all you ever get from me in any of your posts.

    "you can go back to blindly hating anything that isn't exactly like you now"

    Hello pot. I've been seeing you around the blog more and more lately. Hope things get better for you.

  • Sam, consider your words:

    "How does the President expect these Olympic leaders, from around the world, to select a city in the United States? Obama has been out there telling every foreigner that he could find, that the USA is a terrible country. He has blamed the average American for every evil in the world! He has apologized and bent over for every petty dictator that he could get to listen to him."

    President Obama was called upon at the last minute to attempt to save face for the Chicago Olympic Committee.

    Rio had the 2016 Olympics bid wired before 2004.

    Voting for others on all the issues before the Int'l. Olympics, hosting Olympic delegations from countries they were courting, lavishing all sorts of goodies (Simply buying votes.)and banking IOUs

    year after year for the last quarter century.

    Hard to believe, but the Chicago 2016 Olympics Committee were starry-eyed amateurs.

    For one thing, all the U.S. laws making it illegal to bribe anyone for anything.

    Oil companies must compete overseas with no hope of winning exploration rights -- or they set up subsidiaries overseas -- which can do just like Shell, BP and all the other foreign-based outfits -- and bribe government officials right and left.

    Obama went to Copenhagen knowing Chicago had no chance -- But the trip gave him a chance to meet a number of leaders who had not seen a U.S. president in their lifetime -- and he had a needed talk with the U.S. Army's Afghanistan military commander.

    General MAC had to hear the facts of life, until the many task forces come up with a balanced, carefully considered course of action in that region -- TOTALLY UNLIKE THE 2000-2009 BUSH YEARS, WHEN "SHOOT FROM THE HIP AND LIP" DECISION MAKING WAS THE NORM -- WITH THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER GETTING SHOT IN THE FOOT AND POSTERIOR" -- Field Commanders provide their best reccommendations to the President through channels.

    After an intelligent course of action is decided upon, with all departments of government involved, and announced -- The field commander's voice will be of value before Congress.

    The uber-conservatives have been blasting President Obama because he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. That Nobel award alone should be telling the carping critics that the rest of the world recognizes the importance of the immediate changes in U.S. policy.

    IT IS NO MORE DUBYAH pushing his personal war of choice, while ignoring Al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan.

    No more the U.S. going it alone.

    Right now, there are nearly three dozen nations contributing troops in Afghanistan. Most are token forces of a few men.

    But they are there -- their nations are involved.

    When it comes to economic and political improvements they will be truly helpful -- but they are already committed to share the load.
