Looks like the obama sycophants are all out here in full defense mode.

I would
if it wasn't so


So, the going definition of an "Obama sycophant" is anyone who doesn't jump in on an opportunistic bashing?


No, the definition would be people that don't miss an opportunity to defend obama whether he deserves it or not.


I've seen nothing out of Obama that I haven't seen out of every single POTUS for the entirety of my adult life.


One of the "best" endorsements of obama's "hope and change" campaign mantras I've seen lately.


FTR: I have no interest in defending Obama whatsoever.


A nice change. Since it's a job that's going to get pretty lonely and much harder to accomplish in the next 2 years IMO.


I do have an interest in defending rational truth however.

Rational truth has no sides.

The world is falling apart and hes going to Rio. Tells me all I need to know about this guy.


Would you prefer that he stay in the White House or attend more union rallies? I say, the farther away the better.
Maybe he'll stay gone one day when he realizes "the jig is up."

The 1st president in exile? What a relief!

I personally won't be happy until Obama runs into a phone booth, rips off his clothing to reveal the big red "S" on his chest, flies to Japan, picks up the reactors and throws them into the sun.

After everything said by obama's supporters during the campaign and since became president, the rest of us also expect nothing less.

And you just posted "FTR: I have no interest in defending Obama whatsoever." When does that start?

My reply in this instance was a bit satirical... If you'd have quoted the entirety of my post, the context would show through much better.


The part about all he can really do is express sympathy and offer aid. It's an important caveat to include.

I don't understand why his travel is a problem, did I miss the part where it was the US suffering these tragedies? He is off on US business, drumming up buyers for our exports is official US business and I don't have a problem with that. If this situation occurred in California or some other state I may have a different opinion, but because one nation is facing great hardship does not mean our country stops.

I find this interesting when someone mentioned a post bout people taking advantage of the crisis in Japan. Right now their industry just got shattered and someone posted a comment that mentioned using this as an opportunity to see our way our of out debt by taking up some of Japans industrial slack.


I told a friend this morning that the reconstruction effort and the US "taking up slack" will boost us out of the slump at the same time we rebuild Japan.

Young people who now dominate ATS do not understand the "zero-sum-game" that this presents. It was a world war mobilization that pulled the US out of the Great Depression, the rebuilding of Europe that ended their empire building across Africa and Asia, and the "race to the moon" (which half of them do not believe or remember) that fueled the technology explosion.

Who will build and sell the Toyotas, Hondas and semiconductors now? Who will produce the steel, aluminum and concrete to reconstruct entire towns? Who will step up production of natural gas to replace the Middle East resources torn asunder during revolution and suppression of rebels? This is an opportunity that SCREAMS to be jumped on for everyone's benefit.

The biggest downside is that a recovering economy will see Obama win another four years from the same idiots criticizing this effort. Too bad; but re-blooming capitalism may effectively neutralize his socialist/Marxist agenda.

How is the President of the United States supposed to help Japan from Washington? He can do exactly the same thing from Brasil as he can do from Washington. It is 2011 and we can communicate in real time from anywhere. His orders still count of he isn't on domestic soil. We are talking about a Japanese disaster, not an American one. If you want to pick on TPOTUS, you can find much better arguments.

If I'd included the entirety of all your other shall we say pro-obama posts on a multitude of threads, satire would have been almost impossible to detect.

Again, you just said that "FTR, you weren't defending obama". You must know that only criticizing obama's opponents is really the same thing.

Criticizing people that nitpick one person and turn a blind eyed to another isn't defending, it's pretty much calling it fair. Whats your favorite news stations phrase "Fair and Balanced".

What does "favorite news stations phrase "Fair and Balanced" - if I have one, which I don't - have to do with the OP discussion?

Do yourself a favor before posting anything further and learn how to do some research.

In this particular case, you could try clicking the search button at the top right on the page and then entering "obama" in the search phrase and then "hefficide" in the place for the author. Then start scanning the many pages of posts to see if I was really unfairly criticizing anyone.

Is it correct to presume this is a scheduled trip? Still, if radiation has a chance to impact North America, it seems the height of hubris to bug out to South America. Regularly scheduled or not.

I think it is far easier to point out that you are willing to bash Obama for anything in any situation, then it is to peg Hefficide as a Obamanite. Just my 2 cents as a ATS lurker.

Then you simply haven't done the basic research I suggested in my last post.

Yes, it was previously scheduled.

He is not leaving until the weekend and only for 5 days from what I have heard...it isn't like he is taking up residence there.

That is rather misleading advice because it simply brings up every single thread that I have posted in that has Obama in the title, or where I used the term "Obama". I've actually taken your advice and read the first 3 pages... so far the only Obama specific commentary, by me, is that I don't buy into the birther concept.


But, please, feel free to actually hunt through that mess and find any posts where I cheer lead for Obama and I'll be happy to address them.

BTW searching your member name with "Obama" also yields a mountain of results.

I think it is possible you've formed a bias and aren't seeing things accurately.

What do you expect him to do? America sent all the help Japan is going to need, they basically need a few warm bodies and some gear. The Japanese are among the best qualified to deal with that sort of thing.

Is he going to be out of the country at the same time as Rockefeller's and Gates. Are the Bush's still around? Where are the Clinton's? Apparently a lot of important people are getting out of America for some reason, is something in the air?
