"Gold gets dug out of the ground in Africa, or someplace. Then we melt it down, dig another hole, bury it again and pay people to stand around guarding it. It has no utility. Anyone watching from Mars would be scratching their head."

Mary Mitchel is definitely an idiot, but how does her idiocy reflect on Obama?
Tucker Case - Tard magnet.
But, I can cut Obama some slack, maybe his handlers kept it from him and he is ignorant of the Chicago news.
The simple fact remains that everyone who saw the words of Mary Mitchell is either bad, a liar, ignorant, or stupid, if they claim those words were not a smear of Obama and blacks claiming he was lying and most black people know it.
I think its better he doesn't make a comment on this. I don't have issues with a President Elect speaking about issues of domestic importance, but when it comes to Foreign Affairs I don't want anyone but the POTUS speaking publicly about a stance. Obama may be President here in less than half a month, but right now its still Bush and still Bush's policies and there does not need to be a second voice there to muddle it up.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
His not being President didn't stop him from proposing solutions to the economic crisis nor did it stop him from discussing the probability of withdrawals with Iraqi officials. Why is this any different?He is not President yet, What would people like him to do?
He has no power yet and he will eventually inherit this problem in January.
He shouldn't make no statement other than 'There is 1 President at a time'
Besides, we all know there will be no difference regarding Israel in a Obama adminsitration.
He wouldn't want to be labelled a secret jihadist by the right.
It seems he's only interested in discussing things which he finds politically advantageous and it seems equally apparent that his supporters are willing to ignore or rationalize his silence on this key issue while defending his chattiness on others. Perhaps he'll speak to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict once he's finished the back nine.
An “I see no reason” is not a “therefore.”
