Yet another sad misinformed thread by an Obama hater, it's his latest in a series of more then 10 anti obama threads
The last even more ridiculous as the first...
So far Obama is Muslim, Hindu, christian, Gay, Black to white people , white to black poeple
The truth: he none of the above
This is becoming quite ridiculous,and yes, I'm starting to wonder, does anyone pay you/other Obamahaters to post this BS, repetitively ?
What was this site's motto again ? Spread Ignorance ?

You said this would lead to an escalation of violence perpetrated by people who identify with what Obama said, which is totally un-substantiated....
Shame that...I just sent you a GENUINE U2U...
Maybe I was wrong ?

Obama is anti-second ammendment rights.
He also likes to talk tough - sound street tough or something stupid like that. (remember his 'warning' about discussing his wife? )
I've said it here before and I'll say it again - What Obama says with all his gun statements translates to - police are evil, racist, and fascist, but individuals cannot be trusted to protect themselves, either. (yes ... paraphrased from Michelle Malkin)

Please tell me why this kind of talk is shocking coming from a black man?
This doesn't surprise me at all. I'm glad this idiot is showing his true colors. He's not a black man, he's an [snip]

This thread isn't about hating Obama, it's about questioning his authenticity in light of his "we'll bring a gun" comment. It's very poor leadership, in my opinion, to claim that you stand for ending a "cycle of violence" and then turn around and say, "If you bring a knife I'll bring a gun."
Poor choice of metaphors. Poor leadership. Doesn't mean I hate Obama.
Honestly, it sounds like you're self-projecting.

Obama wants to look like a street thug. Well .. for THAT audience he does anyways.
His new pastor, Otis Moss III has a love affair with street thugs. He calls some of them ‘prophets’.
Obama changes accents and changes messages to fit the crowd he is pandering to. Black accents … white accents … street ‘lingo’
Jay-Z lyrics -
If you feelin’ like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off
Ladies is pimps too, go and brush your shoulders off
Niggaz is crazy baby, don’t forget that boy told you
Get, that, dirt off your shoulders
And then there’s Jay-Z’s lyrics - ‘stab the ladies, middle finger to the law’
Obama doing the shoulder brush off and the Wall Street Journal talks about it.
“Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Jay-Z
Obama giving Hillary the finger … and yes, he knew what he was doing.
The Los Angeles Times talks about the mischievous smile he had after he did it.
He’s a Jay-Z fan But so are his 6 and 9 year old daughters. Heck of a thing to let children that age listen to those lyrics!!
theres a lot of negitive stuff about obama sec amendment and his music. first you can still go in walmart and by a muzzle loader no back ground check just proof of age and walk right out the door.and if you dont think a muzzle loader cant be efective in combative sistuation then you dont know guns.secound his music is his way of enjoying himself,it should be said the same of gorge bush he listens to country are we to assume he has tentencys to get drunk beat on his wife and cheat on her with a man up on broke back mountain?

Where's this tough talk when it comes to Iran? I hear him say he wants to site down and talk with Iran. I'd feel better if he'd talk tough to our enemies instead of to the guy he's running against.

So, one might clarify your proposal to state: "Because Obama uses a choice of words which I find personally distasteful and would argue send the wrong message to certain elements of our society, he is a poor leader."
For example, you would need to show that Obama's choice of words in this case is more damaging than a POTUS who is on the record as having flippantly sang about bombing Iran. I've seen it stated earlier in this thread that such comparisons aren't fair play. I put to you that avoiding them would be somewhat like criticizing a Toyota for depending on internal combustion when the only alternative is a Honda that does the same thing.
