I flagged this because no one is making a fuss of this. Doesn't it seem odd to anyone else that President Obama's first interview as President isn't with one of our major news networks? Wouldn't you think he would have a little courtesey and give an interview to one of our networks first? Is this ringing any bells WHATSOEVER in your heads that, after all the allegations, of his ties with the radical muslim world??? Wouldn't you think that it is okay to talk to the Arab world, after you spoke with the people that supported you? I hope he does work things out with the radical nuts, but it would have digested better had he not turned his back on our news networks first. It's really quite hilarious seeing that every person that has came out to support him gets rejected by him after he got what he wants...
Remember a few other things on top of this too... take a hard look if you will...
1: He is closing Gitmo.
2: His pick for Treasury Secretary (Geithner) did not pay his taxes for 3 or more years.
3. He is pushing for an additional 850 billion dollars out of YOUR pocket to fix crap that YOU DID NOT MESS UP.
That's all fine and dandy with me... just tell me when you are done grabbing your ankles...
