    Stuff like this happens to all modern presidents. The worst **** is when people harp on things that are inherently obvious, such as what Obama said. Basically if you couldn't figure out that a 2nd term president has more flexibility, you need to go back to 5th grade civics class. As for Benny being a liar, well I can't expect most people here to actually understand the Middle East peace process and all its obstacles.
    It isn't the part saying that Bush Jr made some pretty funny comments, yeah, sometimes he was a sp-ed. There are some great one liners by presidents from bothe parties when they think the mics are off. The part of your comment I thought was partisan is highlighted below.

People who don't give a **** about this generally 1) Educated about US politics 2) Educated about historical US politics 3) Sane.
    Basically, if they don't think like you, then they are ignorant, stupid or partisan, but if they do think like you, all of a sudden they are educated and sane. Come on.

    This is exactly what I expect out of the left. You are totally belittling everything we have worked for over 200 years. Might as well give New England back to Britain. OMG. Just kidding, I thought that was pretty funny Adam.

    Benny promised to stop the settlments. He has the power to do so as demonstrated by the dismantling of settlment early in the talks. That ended and settlements are springing up. Therefore Benny has lied. 1) He said he'd do it. 2) He has the power. 3) He refuses to use it. Therefore he has lied. If you think I'm wrong, show me.

    No, it's the fact that they can't figure out something a 5th grader can. Oh noes, Obama said he'd have more flexibility after reelection......like every single politicians has in their final term. Taking that to mean the crazy **** that people are doing now is a sign they stupid or partisan hacks.

    It doesn't matter if a Republican said it. Political affiliation of the person making that mic comment does not change the political realities of final term politicians. The inability to figure out that a final term politician can do and say stuff that they normally wouldn't SHOULD be obvious to those with a semi-functioning brain. Going off about how Obama told Mededev something Mededev already knew as a sign Obama is weak is a sign you are ignorant, stupid or partisan.

    If you can't figure out that a last term politician has more flexibility, you really shouldn't even be on this board, or even discussing politics at all regardless of how you lean.

    This thread is about Russia and President Obama's "flexibility" comment, yes? Now I've had a couple of "don't do thats" so you're going to have to discuss the Middle East, on this thread, all by yourself, okay?

    My point again. If someone doesn't think like you, it is partisan.

    Question. If it was "nothing", this flexibility comment, then why do the "lean forward and speak softly" thingy? I don't know what President Obama's intentions were, but it would seem he could have said this on the record in front of the camers for all of us to hear, if it was a "nothing" comment.

    Please, the right still blames Clinton and goes back as far as Carter for Bush failures.

    I think you're a bloody ****ing idiot if you can't figure out something this incredibly basic.
