    Dang N, you sure pick some interesting hills to die on.

    In the flavor of your post, what the left wing hate machine is trying to suggest is the President just didn't articulate his point very well about ISIL not being Islam. Of course they are Islam, just not the Islam the President wants people to know about.

    Let's get real, you paint a few radical Christians as representing all of Christianity all the time, but turn around and write about dying breaths in your crusade to bring truth where you perceive none exists? You need less Tequila and more sunlight.

    Wrong hills to die on my friend.

    Are you kidding me? Come on R88. Westboro is a few wackjobs pretending to be a Church. ISIL has taken over portions of nations. My word, the lack of any subatomic particle of equivalency is glaring.

    Why is it that the supposedly most eloquent man to ever hold the office of President of the United States continuously has to have someone explain what he really meant to say?

    Can't we just acknowledge that the man is often just plainly idiotic and leave it at that?

    The chasm in your analogy is prodigious.
    ISIS or ISIL or whatever is the subject of the thread. Pardon me for not talking about every single extremist Islamist group on Earth.

    Besides, you forgot al Shabob.

    So what, because ISIL is more successful makes Westboro more Christian?

    Which I never said Westboro was analogous to ISIS. What I said is that their following of the teachings of Christ is about the same as ISIS' following of the religion of Islam.

    When are people going to accept that President Obama actually says exactly what he meant to say?

    It's rather remarkable to me to think that there are those who don't understand the complexities of giving a speech like the one the President delivered last night. Every word is parsed, every phrase practiced and nuanced. Each gesture is practice, and inflection is assigned in appropriate places.

    The President said what he said, exactly the way he wanted to say it. He made a host of claims nobody but the infatuated are buying, and he will be remembered for doing so.

    Oh for heavens sake...

    Of COURSE ISIS is Islamic. He knows that. As was very accurately said before by NIMBY he HAS to draw the distinction> it has to be CLEAR to the Muslim world that we are not blaming Islam and we are not grouping them all together. Hell...when you are going to be putting American lives in a situation where you are going to be dependent on Muslim countries, leaders, and people, its not even inappropriate to diplomatically smooch a little bootay. Was it handled hamfistedly? Most assuredly. Is it worth all this? Geeeeeeeezus.
