    Do tell what's wrong. And explain how Affirmative Action has anything to do with our nationally elected President, other than making a comment sound borderline racist.

    What part of this do you not understand?

    Look I know you have difficulties and just can't fathom that ISIS was AQIL.
    No, they WERE part of Al-Qaeda. But they aren't. Officially haven't been for roughly a year. The fact you want our President to continue to call them Al-Qaeda, when even Al-Qaeda says ISIS isn't part of their group is stupid.

    Obviously most already know this fact. Then they morphed into the Islamic State brought on by Baghdadi's split from the Z-Man. While still maintaining their ties. Now I know even you can understand that Point. What do you think the General meant by Outgrowth?
    Who cares? You're apparently wanting President Obama to call them Al-Qaeda now, when they clearly are not Al-Qaeda now.

    Why do you struggle with even the simplest of facts? It makes you sound completely uninformed.

    Did you believe what your BO peep says or not?
    It depends on what he said. But I'm not offended when he doesn't call ISIS part of Al-Qaeda since...get this...they are not part of Al-Qaeda, even according to Al-Qaeda.


    So the real question is why you keep calling them Al-Qaeda when they aren't? Do you just not know any better?

    I don't know. Why is conservatives miss such an obvious message and go stupid on things Obama says? I guess both are a mystery.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Words appear to have lost their meaning, or some people are seriously confused.
    Terrorists use violence to instill fear into an opponent for the sake advancing their agenda and typically don't mind killing innocent people to do so.

    I actually agree Joe, However, Obama #1, ignored context to make his crappy comparison here. I really think he enjoys slapping Christians in the face....

    Without turning this into an academic exercise of event of 800 years ago, let's just say that this is the here and now...
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I quite disagree. The hatred of Muslims in general is something that needed to be addressed. Far too many don't see the difference, and this requires that leaders point it out.

    And we can use both historic examples and modern examples. We can move from the Crusades to the Salam witch trials to Hitler blessing plans to black church burnings in the south to Christian hate groups of today. He merely used an example everyone should have been familiar with.

    Conservatives don't. Stupid partisans who are too busy to cheerlead for their team are the ones who miss the point.

    No, President Obama did not say that during his National Prayer Breakfast speech.

    Reading comprehension and/or improving your listening skills will go a long way towards understanding what he really said. The following quote is taken directly from the President's speech in reference to Jim Crow laws in their historical context where such laws were followed sometimes with religious justification behind them:

    And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.
    He never said that Christians initiated Jim Crow laws. He did say that were some who justified their actions when adhering to Jim Crow laws based on their religious faith something we all know to be very true.

    Barrack Obama got where he is today largely because of Affirmative Action. Affirmative Action is racist, but it was never a policy I would adapt or condone.
    No, Al-Qaeda is saying ISIS is not part of Al-Qaeda.
    And what is the importance of this to you? Do you feel that Al Qaeda is morally superior it ISL? Do you tend to believe what terrorists tell you?

    And that's his job? Are Americans really that unschooled that they need BHO to bring them up-to-date?

    He got where he is today because he was elected by this country. I'm sorry if you have a problem with a black person being President, but it doesn't change the truth.

    If you're not intelligent enough to read back through the thread to see why I posted that comment, then you'll just have to live with the disappointment of never knowing.
