    Re: "Monster" Colorado wildfire rages; Obama plans visit

    I actually opened this thread hoping to hear from folks in Colorado more first-hand details of what's going on, which DP posters are out of harm's way and which are in danger of losing their homes. I'm really damned disappointed that this thread isn't about giving information about the fire. It's just using the fire to fuel a partisian bitchfest. Pity.

    The wider problem is that people are going to find fault in obama no matter what he does. They will make up reasons to hate the guy. Your bitching is a good example of this.

    I find fault where I see it...and at this time, I am focused on what I see from Obama right now. Any other issue of fault on Obama's part is irrelevant.

    I guess you have nothing relevant to the topic and that's why you constantly whine about poor Obama. Excuse me if I don't share your concern about him. I am more concerned for my neighbors who can't go home today.

    I'm sorry you didn't find what you are looking for in my thread.

    Perhaps you should start your own, eh?

    I'm just saying no matter what he does, he loses for people like you so your opinion means very little.

    And what exactly is wrong with being a birther?

    A few things:
    Back during the oil spill, he stayed at home, this was a good decision in my opinion because we have these things called telecommunications lines that enable him to keep in touch while real experts deal with the situation. This fire thing is a similar situation I think. The situations are not that different.

    However that isn't the real issue. The real issue is hypocrisy of people, maybe not you specifically, but you are simply one person and unimportant to the point I am making. Your comments are simply a useful jumping off point. You can continue to try to engage me if you want, but I really don't care. You have your answer, so now you can go away and I will make the more important points.

    People should actually think about the president in a rational manner and not simply find ways to hate the guy. This whole fire thing is a perfect showcase for a problem the conservatives have been displaying since the guy got elected. He does a lot of things wrong, that is a given, but its never a good idea to seek fault for fault's sake.

    You are not helping by feeding the liberal deflection.

    Please keep on topic.

    Facts dictate you are wrong. yet you cannot see it. Thus, either ignorance or stupidity.

    Pick One.

    I agree. He should stay home. He doesn't need to come to the Springs.

    However that isn't the real issue. The real issue is hypocrisy of people, maybe not you specifically, but you are simply one person and unimportant to the point I am making. Your comments are simply a useful jumping off point. You can continue to try to engage me if you want, but I really don't care.

    That is YOUR issue. It is not the issue of this (my) thread. Perhaps you should start your own thread on your issue and get the hell out of mine.

    People should actually think about the president in a rational manner and not simply find ways to hate the guy. This whole fire thing is a perfect showcase for a problem the conservatives have been displaying since the guy got elected.

    I have been perfectly rational in my posts. I have given reasons why I have my position. You, sir, have given no rational responses to the topic of this thread. You have only attempted to use it as a springboard for your whining about how conservatives treat poor Obama.
