    And guess what? I am not going to be a hypocrite. Kudos to Obama for his support of the troops too.

    LOL!! Not meaning to offend. I don't like Obama. I do give him credit sometimes. He tried to stop the Gaza flotilla. I give him credit for that. Things like this, though, coming from Obama, seem empty to me. He has done harmful things to the military, and still is... seems like a gesture to me, but okay-- good for Obama..
    I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'.

    You are not offending at all. You have an honest opinion, and expressed it without personally attacking other members of this forum. Looks to me like you posted it just right.

    His sense of humor.

    His reaction following 9/11

    His quick action in Afghanistan

    His apparent complete lack of care about what race or gender some one was.

    OBL was indeed brought down on his watch - but the groundwork was laid in prior to his watch. the logic on "blame" v "credit" seems confused when comparing that used for the OBL raid v. say, the recession.


    as for the BBQ - I agree that This Is The Sort Of Thing The President Is Supposed To Do, but still, he's supposed to do this kind of thing because it's a good thing to do, and good on him for doing it.

    Whether or not its the thing a "President is supposed to do" its not something they have to do. I'm sure the soldiers attending have little care if it was "what they do" or not, and were more thrilled by the honor and the oppertunity. It likely gave our soldiers a memorable event, and that alone is worthy of praise.
