    Reagan was good at that, too! We all have faults, but living in a fishbowl can't be the easiest way to spend your life! Both he and Thatcher will long be remembered, while those who won't or can't can't give credit when deserved will soon fade. It costs nothing to be generous towards other people, because none of us are infallible, and we have all made mistakes
    Reagan, Churchill and Thatcher were all honorable people and great leaders, and probably never snorted cocaine in their lives.

    Sorry, but your pure hatred for the man doesn't negate the fact that he is president and is currently needed here. He doesn't need to be an investigator. He needs to be here for more than just standing around. Just because you don't understand what the president does doesn't mean he does nothing.

    You seem to have missed the part as to WHY he is needed.

    I don't HATE the guy. I just believe him to be an incompetent, a poseur, and a great deal less than honest-all character flaws that have been obvious to anyway who has looked at his resume, words, and actions.

    Are you purposely conflating the two, or are you simply confused about the difference?
    What he said was ambiguous, but either way he's wrong.

    I took it to meant, if you are defending Obama, you are a identifying yourself as liberal. Which would be a stupid comment.

    But he very well could have meant that everyone defending Obama is a self-identified liberal, which not all of them are. So he would be wrong.

    I might have pulled the wrong meaning from what he said, it happens, but regardless what he's saying is wrong.

    WOW! Barrack Obama handled the Somalian pirates as well? I can see him hanging from a rope swing across the bloodied decks, a knife in his teeth, a sword at his side and a determined grin on his face. And wearing a puffy shirt.

    Is there no end to this mans gifts??

    He is needed because he is president and the final decisions on many matters are his. That's the only reason that's really relevant. All of your other talking points about shovel ready jobs etc. are only serving the purpose of changing the topic.

    Wow, you have a gift my friend. I haven't seen the twisting of words like that in quite some time.

    My wife just wrecked her car. I told her not to worry, because she was very upset, that I would handle it. I think any reasonable person would understand that all I did by "handling it" was to call the insurance company, get it inspected, and bring it in to get it fixed. Saying I handled it didn't mean that I replaced her bumper all by myself.

    Obama made the calls and he got it right. I can't believe your hatred for him makes you upset at that fact.

    He is needed for 'final decisions on many matters"? What matters would those be? Anything?

    This is a guy who gives the British a Walmart set of DVD's that are unplayable on the British system and you are now telling me he doesn't know that they have telephones over there as well?
