    I mean come on, this stuff is silly and go on and on for day and days.

    for instance.. why didn't Obama stand up for the FBI when Dick Durbin laid out his famous FBI -Gulag-pol pot comparison.. shouldn't the chief-executive-to-be stand up for his FBI agents?.. omgomgomg Obama hates the FBI!


    don't bother answering the question, btw... it's not a "real" question.. just an example of how this partisan crap can go back and forth.
    I understand what you're saying, but my point is at least one of the people on stage could have shown some nuts. Doesn't have anything to do with the current President.

    As far as gay soldiers, you're saying he never stood up for them?

    Apparently some of their more vocal supporters do.

    I listened to video of the booing, and it sounded like about three people. Obviously the rest of the crowd had proper respect for the guy.

    But like Herman Cain said, it was enough so that someone should have spoken up. But he said that the day after.

    Where were the Democrat politicos during the shameful denogration of our soldiers over the past few decades? Were you calling for action when they didn't speak-up? You weren't, were you?

    So much for consistancy.

    No, I'm right on target--steel on the kill--but I can't help but wonder why, now, everyone thinks the prez should stand up for the troops. Didn't seem all that important to the Libbos, before. Could it have something to do with the fact that it was a gay soldier that was picked on this time?

    While we're on the subject, let's talk about it's not the president's place to tell the American people what they can and can't say in public. Kinda goes against the whole free speech craziness that Libbos hate, except when it's them doing the speaking, that is.
    That's rich, the liberals believe the behavior of a handle full of people represents the collective thinking of 120,000,000 people. I guess it's fair game to assume the murderous rantings of the New Black Panther Party MUST represent the collective thinking of the entire democrat party.
    I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.
