    Nothing wrong with that. Giving the appearance of ducking out because **** is too tough for you gives a bad impression in my book.

You do sometimes make some legitimate arguments about Obama, but when some of your threads are about little nitpicky idiotic issues like this, it's hard to take you seriously even when you bring up legitimate stuff.




    Can you try to control yourself? This thread is not about me.


    I have no problem with him leaving the WH, I have a problem with the whole "this is too tough so I gots to go" explaination. It looks weak.

    You too miss my point.


    It is the reasoning behind it, not the actual act.


    It looks weak to bail because your day is too tough.

    I think that it's obvious from the article you posted that him saying that was an attempt at being humorous. Obviously it went over your head. Keep trying to make a bigger issue out of it than it really is, though.

    Like I said. If one of my project managers did this, I'd fire him.


    Sorry I hold the President to a higher standard than you. I think the things he does puts an impression on the world of his character. Ducking when the going gets tough is not the character I want from my president.

    Except that's not the explaination given by Obama. Its one speculated about and made up by some random ass AP reporter that, most likely, if this was about Bush would've been lambasted by the majority of republicans on this thread for daring to make **** up about the President.

    Obama's explanation was that he wanted to get out of the White House for a bit. That's it. YOU and the AP report ASSUME its because its "so tough", but he never says that. The reason could be that he's been working hours upon hours and wanted a break from all the executive stuff for a bit. The reason could be that he's been in the same general rooms for hours on end, days on end, and wanted to do something else. It could be that he had some time where nothing was immedietely pressing and his wife wanted to go do something. It could be dozens of reasons.

    Now you can say its judgement, that it gives the "impression". No, it doesn't, not to the majority of people. You can even look at this thread and it doesn't give that impression to the majority of posters here. It gives the impression to some random ass AP reporter trying to make a story, and a few hyper partisans that would take ANYTHING he does and try to turn it into something that's a lack of judgement, so it wouldn't have mattered if he went, didn't go, commented, didn't comment, etc.

    They hypocracy of some people on this thread and in the republican party right now blasting Obama for not looking "presidential" because he visited a school for a few hours and said he wanted to get out of the white house. This same type of republican who routinely defended Bush's trips to the ranch and said people making fun of him for talking funny or saying stupid things were being anti american or traitorous or some other kind of thing.

    He did something all Presidents have done. So what if it wasn't totally scripted out and vetted through the PR department.

    Sorry I hold the President to a higher standard than you.

    I'm not comparing the President of the United States of America to a project manager.

    What the Obamanistas won't admit is that if this were Bush, they'd be screaming at the top of their lungs.

    But, this is The Messiah. That means this is different.
