    I actually know what he was thinking, but if I say it I'll get kicked off of this forum. So you'll have to figure it out for yourself. Put your brain to work.

    Have a nice day and a wonderful life.

    There wasn't much Obama could do about a man more intellegent than he is, who has won the Medal of Freedom, and spoke the truth.

    Yes, we are too partisan and we do need both the left and the right. Yes, that was truth.

    Yeah maybe, that speech was far from some kind of agreement with Obama's policies.

    No one suggested otherwise. Yet, he did speak and was treated respectfully.
