I owe you a sorry when i used your thread it wasnt a "i'm going to directly attack you type of deal". I forgot to add that I hear that line all the time in these threads the "there are plenty of things to attack obamo on", Besides I actually kind of agree with you this is a non issue but I have seen people use that same excuse for the two issues I had with obama. Its like people think they can play misdirection all the time. 4 people get killed because of the presidents incompatence and we should now talk about the economy because "thats more important"

Even it being a non issue it's kind of not it good taste. Ps i did read your response to me it seems your reading way to much into what he had to say and fabricated a story to fit your assumption. I would say he most likely is in reelection mode and his mind is in too many directions at once. A simple mistake

Thanks for the apology and I apologize for any brash assumptions I may have made. I do agree with you that the 9/11 incident shouldn't be swept under the rug. Obama does do plenty of things we should worry about and I think we should worry more about them.

Phrase "Lean Forward" is often used in the military; means don't sit around with your thumb up your ass when you could be preparing for an event that is most likely going to happen.

Been in the military since 1981.

First time I ever heard it was on MSNBC.

But hey, what do I know.

But I did. While you were frothing at the mouth how Obama went out of his way to "invent" the phrase 'lean forward', I posted the information that before Obama, this was used in a similar context by:

a) Donald Rumsfeld
b) Alberto Gonzales
c) FEMA

And that's information. You were plain wrong in part because you don't care about facts. Just like in the "bayonet" thread, when Obama mentioned modern capabilities of the Navy, like carriers and nuclear subs, you "concluded" that Obama was declaring the US Navy as obsolete. Wow. Just wow.

You agenda is transparent, and it doesn't belong on ATS, imho. Take it to a Tea Party event.

It still didn't fit. It was an ODD fit and Obama doesn't use that term.


It's the second thread that puts your reading comprehension skills in question. This term was used by other people before Obama when addressing a dire situation. It fits fine. Of course you don't really care whether it does.

Lean forward agencies, BO is coming after you now. He already bent the rest of the American over and gave it to us good.

It was staged because it will help the VICTIMS of Sandy.

Romney has made it clear how he feels about Victims.


It was staged because the Romney campaign spent $5,000 at Walmart on canned food and diapers, and then handed then out to his supporters to hand to Romney for a photo op.

The really bad thing about this is, the Red Cross doesn't accept donations of canned goods or any goods for that matter. They only accept donations of cash or blood. So the example that Romney is pretending to set is NOT helping the victims, unless Romney intends to drive a truck into the heart of some disaster area himself and personally hand out canned food and diapers, those donations are only going to a local food bank.

It's misleading and a hurts, rather than helps the donation efforts of the Red Cross, having people think that they can just drop off dry goods or canned goods to help, when they can't.

Would you prefer every agency to fall back?

This thread is real stupid, Obama isn't allowed to use a common word in the English language now.

Wait, wait, you said they accept blood! So Romney can still redeem himself by driving into the midst of the disaster area and slashing his wrists! Then, he'll have my vote.

I bet he'd do it, too, if he thought it would win him the White House!

1 - I was in the Army for five years and I never heard it.
2 - Obama was never in the military. And his title 'commander in chief' is just that .. a title. He has no military training and no military experience. So he couldn't have pulled it from there.

... and you did it again. Mixing solid information for discussion with this kind of drivel.
seriously dude .. learn how to post.

I posted the information that before Obama ...

And that was fine. I said so. THAT is what proper posting is. Posting information.
Information in which I had a discussion back with you.
All the rest of the rhetoric was just blah blah blah ... Like I said, learn how to post.

You were plain wrong in part because you don't care about facts.

Seriously dude ... get real. I applauded when you posted actual facts to discuss. I nailed you for the garbage that you posted that didn't belong on the thread. Namely ... the anti-flyersfan crap that you are constantly spewing.

You agenda is transparent, and it doesn't belong on ATS, imho.

YOUR pro-Obama-no-matter-what/anti-FlyersFan-because-she-disagrees-with-my-agenda posts are transparent and don't belong on ATS, IMHO. Again .. learn how to post. Learn how to tolerate that not everyone has the same opinion as yours. Stick to INFORMATION and drop the other crap .. then you'll do just fine. Good luck to you. I sincerely hope you grow and learn so you can become a good ATS poster.



Now try to get on topic ... and I'm not the topic ....
Was Obama using his campaign slogan at at FEMA event?
Yes ... or no.
There are no right answers. We have no way of knowing for sure.
There are only opinions based on information and the situation at hand.

My reading skills are just fine. YOUR opinion is that he borrowed from other sources. That's fine. OTHER people have the opinion that he was inserting his latest campaign catch phrase into the FEMA meeting. That's fine too. Learn how to accept that others have different opinions on the same situation. Learn tolerance and that your opinion isn't the only one out there and that it may not even be the right one. You'll have a much more pleasant life and a longer lifespan on the ATS boards.

Get on topic. I'm not the topic.

Mao had his Great Leap Forward.

en.wikipedia.org...

Lenin had his newspaper, Vperyod (Forward)

www.marxists.org...

Hitler youth had Vorwärts! Vorwärts!

www.youtube.com...

There was even a wiki page entitled 'Forward (generic name of socialist publications), and guess what.

en.wikipedia.org...:Articles_for_deletion/Forward_(generic_name_of_socialist_publications)

Deleted recently after being up for 18 months. This one's still here though.

en.wikipedia.org...

It's definitely a word associated with socialist leanings. None of which means he's a socialist of course but it's an interesting choice given the history of the word, which his campaign staff must have known about. Blair used 'Forward with Britain' too. Look how well that turned out.

The leaning bit is interesting though. It seems almost forced to me, it doesn't gel or flow very well.

That's what I am saying. It sounded tinny ... like it was forced into the sentence.


MORE ON TOPIC ...
This person has the opinion that Obama was doing the MSNBC thing ...

Opinon piece by Noel Sheppard


In the case of MSNBC, we know what “lean forward” means. As was announced in October 2010 when it unveiled its new slogan, “Cable news network MSNBC said Tuesday it is launching a two-year, multimillion-dollar marketing campaign, embracing its politically progressive identity with the new tagline ‘Lean Forward.’”

Was Obama asking private utilities and every agency to embrace their politically progressive identities?

Or was the president reciprocating love for the so-called “news network” that adores him. After all, Chris Matthews practically demanded the president start watching MSNBC moments after Romney shellacked him in the first debate earlier this month.


One opinion on the subject is as good as another.
We'll never know for sure of course. But the speculation is interesting.

Oh, I can do that. What I can't do it see lies posted here and do nothing about it. Like in this thread, where you said Obama made up this phrase and it's unusual, whereas in fact Donnie Rumsfeld and Alberto Gonzales were avid users of same, years prior. You see, I post facts. You post fabrications.
