Do I really need to go into personal justification or judgement about any of this?
It is what it is. See it for what it is. Dont make excuses, and dont jump on it like its a rash. Sometimes we can have a habbit of doing such things because we are so judgemental towards the other side.
I am going to try and act like this whole last week didnt exist as far as the Presidency goes, and that is something I should not have to do.
It was a mistake(for a lack of a better word), and his laughing about the matter doesnt make it any better. He needs to start taking this Sh@t serious. There are a lot of people out there that need help, ITS NOT A *SNIP* GAME!

The conservative and racist sects in this country have just become silly children since Jan. 20th

The usual response.... attack someone who is black and you are a racist, all the black people who hated bush are also racist then by your accounts? No?

Jesus, people are quick to bash Obama, yet I don't hear you complaining about what Bush has done. I bet you all love Bush, right?

... I rest my case

Bush was a puppet so is Obama, don't forget the financial super brains who have created this from start to finish and we've all acted according to plan. Now all we need is the social unrest and they can unleash a Saviour and destroy your constitution.

Damn strait it's not a #ing game! That's the primarily problematic mentality that runs this paradigm. It's difficult to say how many of them are primarily psychopaths, or just sociopaths, or if there's really any difference between the 2. Life and (usually) death scenarios of real people are just one big chess match to them. Sick beyond any verbal expression.

To the posts by Brainiac and Krollspell, I agree that the Neocon Repugnicans need to be formally recognized as the originators of the meltdown mess, yet I personally don't believe they could be held fully responsible (or close enough) until it can be proven that 9/11 was an inside job, though I could be wrong. Long story on the specifics. Got workday morning routine now...

Point one, Bush saw an economic 'fire' and tried to put it out with a bucket of gasoline.
Point two, Obama just thought Bush didn't use a big enough bucket.
Point three, there is NO LEARNING CURVE when you become president. If a plumber couldn't fix a problem at my house I would fire him and get someone who could. Why would we treat the leader of the free world any different than a repairman who works on the house.
Point four, the media (for the most part) has been in the bag for Obama since day one, and if that incompetant said that friday was 'sombrero day' for the nation practically every news outlet would be shouting 'ole' SO sttop comparing him to Bush.
Point five, ironically enough, the only, I REPEAT, THE ONLY people who have brought up race as an issue have been Obama himself or his supporters. Stop looking at the easy way out fer' christs sake. Start arguing his priciples instead.
Point six, I guess this is finally the time that every conservative out there can start saying "I told you so." But even if we could get a bit of joy out of it we have to ignore the arguement and look for ways, ANY ways, to get us out of this nightmare that we are in now.
There. I'm finished with this mornings rant. Now a nice cuppa' and a smoke.

Obama is just simply out of touch. Plain and simple. Any president who would spend $15k of taxpayer dollars on a playground in this economy without blinking an eye is out of touch. I suppose the $5k model was not good enough.


We learn in the 60 minutes interview that Mr. President has time off in the afternoon to see his kids, have dinner with the family, and takes weekends off after poking his head in to see what's going on.

So basically, the POTUS puts in less hours per week than I do. Kroft also fawns over the first family's playground. What Kroft won't tell you is that while millions of Americans wonder how their next mortgage payment is going to be made, and while their father demonizes Americans for having a culture of greed, the Obama children are literally playing in a castle.

The Obama's went with a Rainbow Play System which Obama himself called "the Rolls Royce of swingsets", specifically the model is Supersized Monster Castle Package IV with a Double Bubble on the Penthouse, which retails for $14,799 plus $1500 install, not including the surface it sits on. Taxpayer money well spent in a down economy.

This baby is big enough for an entire class full of kids.

My neighbors have the basic Rainbow set and it set them back about $3k or more.

I wouldn't say that was a unreasonable expenditure (apart from the fact it's a rip off) I would say an unreasonable expenditure was anything made by or on behalf of "Nancy Pelosi", now she is a real piece of work.

I suppose the money would have been better spent by hiring some local out of work carpenters to construct a custom play structure from scratch in stead of buying the kit. I know a lot of carpenters here in Ohio that would love to have the work.

Obama is stealing your money and giving it to rich people, and pretending he doesn't like it. Wake up guys.

Yes correct. Like one of my own family does all the time. It's called "tolerance", look it up.


Tolerance? You've GOT to be kidding!!! NO you do NOT 'tolerate' a POTUS making bad decisions just because he's POTUS. That's insane.

Jeeeze .. no wonder this country is falling apart. People who are in love with Obama pull out the 'race card' and then the 'tolerance card' to excuse Obama - who is obviously unfit to lead this country.

I honestly am curious to see what the democrats have to say about their messiah now lol! I wonder if they still think he's "the smartest man in the U.S." (yes, some e-tard democrat newscaster said that. Stephen Hawkins was shaking in anger)

Congratulations democrats... you bought your own hippie BS and endangered all americans in the process, hope you're happy with yourselves.

Obama, as a puppet man, is just laughing at now stupid the american people are to allow things to get as bad as they are today.

He is well versed in the NWO agenda and when the banksters complete their 1984 owellian state they will ALL be laughing while the people of this world burn.

Get used to the laughing or do something about it.

OK, seeing how this is a conspiracy site and all, shall we hypothetically postulate that Obama is as bad as you all say he is and is impeached.

I believe that would leave Vice-President Biden as Commander in Chief. Would you all be happier then? Or are you proposing some kind of party-swapping regime change?

Just some fresh meat for the Limbaugh Lovers. Have at it.

( Hey FF, "Tolerance Card?" Hilarious. I'm gonna save my "Sanity" and "Logic" card just for you. Go fish.
)

A final thought on the interview:
"He who controls the questions, controls the answers."

Hey looksie, I didn't mention Shrub at all. How about a star?

Regards.......KK

NO! It is YOU and people like you that are pathetic!
Give him time? He's been given time to prove himself to the U.S. that he is a competent leader. How does he do that? Through the policies and bills that he signs and supports. So far he has show that he'd rather support the rich (no duh!) than the people he claims to want to help.

The only racists I see here are the very democrats who voted for Obama based on his skin color, and not on his character. You bought his BS line of "change" because you didn't want to seem like you were being racist if you didn't vote for him.

Many conservatives (not the same as republicans) on the other hand, didn't give 2 s***ts about his skin color, they were concerned more with his socialist bull that he's trying to cram down all of us, but you hippies are too damn stupid to see that

Within a span of about 5 days, we've had this, Maxine Waters saying publically that she does not think Obama is in the loop on the economy, Dodd saying that Treasury pressured him on the bonus language, Chavez calling Obama an ignoramus and Iran essentially telling Obama to cram his video greeting. Not a good week.

www.politico.com
(visit the link for the full news article)


Don't forget to add this to Obama's list of very recent failures:

Remember His promise to open a dialogue with our enemies? Chavez response was mentioned above. And his letter to Chirac which insulted the French. And the insult of the British PM when he visited Obama. Now the iranians have responded to Obama's video outreach to them by basically shoving it back in his face.

article

I heard so many people here and elsewhere say that Obama's diplomacy would help solve the world's crisis. And remember how some in Europe proclaimed Obama "president of the world" after the election?

Well, he has to figure out how to be president of the U.S. first - and fast.

We had 8 years of Bush-bashing here and elsewhere. Look at you, it's still going on.


When does Obama start taking responsibility for HIS actions?

........certainly not over half of the electorate. Please, as if on Nov 8th he was cast as the underdog and came from nowhere!!! Practically everybody voted him in! What an ill considered retort.

That interview, if watched in full - along with that SECTION of the the interview I add - isn't as half as "controversial" as our fellow users would have you and me believe.

You have, finally, managed to collectively elect someone who has at elast SEEN Main Street (of the Wall St versus Main St parable).

Be grateful McCain didn't get in - or former First Cow Clinton!

Being an average man of the street doesn't mean anything if you CAN NOT DO THE JOB. Obama isn't capable of being POTUS. It's past his ability level. Obviously.


Be grateful McCain didn't get in - or former First Cow Clinton!

I didn't vote for McCain either. And as far as Hillary goes - I don't like her but she would have been able to do the job. She wouldn't be handing DVDs out to the PM of England and she wouldn't be acting 'punch drunk' in interviews. She'd actually understand the situation and be able to deal with it. As I said - I don't like her either - but at least shes capable of being POTUS. Obama isn't.
