I thought this was really nice.
I can take 4 more years of that.
I like Obama as a president, and as a human. I really hope he wins 2012, i know ill be voting for him!
That is super cool. I love it.
I could just see Santorum: " why's this kid using Satan hand signals, get him out of here before God smites us".
or "he's trying to put a hex on me SECRET SERVICE GET IN HERE!"
What's the sign for Don't tase me bro?
Also Obama was just throwing gang signs and got lucky.
It's nice, but I can't get over the contradictions.
That was nice of him
Obama seems like the nicest high profile person in American politics recently.
Anyone remember him sending cheques out of his own pocket to people who wrote him letters of their financial difficulties? Sure, money may not be an issue for the president, and people said it was a "leaked" publicity stunt but it was a nice gesture, nonetheless.
Secret prisons, expanding the war in Afghanistan, bombing Libya, etc...
He may be a nice guy, but a warmonger in policy.
Nice moment. Can't even fathom Romney or Frothy in that position.
In foreign policy ... in that one region ... where we were already involved in war when he took office.
I'm not going to disagree with you completely. I'd much rather he withdrew those troops early on.
But then you'd just change your tune and call him a surrender monkey.
You'd complain ... no matter what he did.
Oh please! This is just beyond ridiculous! What did you say when Bush invaded Afghanistan and Iraq?
No that's not true at all. If he pulled out immediately I'd have absolutely no issue. Im a opponent of initiating violence, and meddling in foreign affairs.
Those wars that he inherited he could have ended, but he didn't. He sent more troops to Afghanistan and just followed along with bushs plan to withdraw from Iraq. Then he helped bomb Libya. He gets a pass for not withdrawing for about six months. After that he's just continuing the crap that bush started. Especially in Iraq.
He was just listening to the generals on the ground.
Personally, I hated that he parroted that same b.s. I voted for him so he could change the way we talked about war and responded to hostilities. Unfortunately, I didn't get all that I wanted ... in fact, I didn't get much of what I wanted out of Obama.
But. But. But.
The republican choices were and continue to be 100 times worse.
Make that 1000.
I don't disagree that the republican choices are worse (except Ron Paul since he actually would literally pull the troops out the next day), but that doesn't alleviate Barack Obama from continuing aggression, nor does it mean we can't criticize.
I also dislike the notion of picking the lesser of two evils, it's still evil. ( not saying Barack Obama is evil, just a way of saying things)
I think I just did. Strongly.
I'm more pragmatic. I'll take the lesser evil.
Link to post?
But it's still evil. Too each their own. I don't tolerate evil.
I think its important to point out that Obama isn't exactly a war general. He's being advised as to what are the best decisions to minimize loss of life while not allowing a region we have funneled billions into collapse. Its different to say you would pull the troops in a seconds notice and actually have to deal with the consequences.
You still live here, so I'd say you're tolerating it just fine.
Like it or leave it fallacy
Then you must be opposed to virtually every President who has been in office during your lifetime. Must be difficult to be happy when you hate all of your leaders.
Three below this quoted one?
You need to make up your mind.
First you say you simply don't like it.
Now, it's intolerable.
So ... which is it?
Yes I have been. And no I'm perfectly happy. I don't see how disliking your president is realted to happiness. Did you like president bush?
That is so cool.
