    In other words, you disagree that the USA has done a lot of things outside of US borders that people in other countries would consider to be bad for some countries but good for the USA? Like over throwing the Iranian government or supporting the Northern alliance, as examples.

    y'know, the spiritual mentor he said he could no more disavow than he could his own racist white gramma

    that is, just weeks before cutting off at the knees the man who married him to michelle and baptized his children
    That wouldn't have anything to do with things he was saying AFTER he expressed that first sentiment, could it?

    Look up the definition of "specious".

    Actually, by definition, none of the "libertarians" who thanked you are actually libertarian. Real libertarians are not in favor of capitalism and are closer to Anarchists than republicans. So don't let Americanized versions of words confuse you.

    People who aren't dishonest and partisan-ly tied to the Shrub don't believe he was actually in any reading contest with Rove and even fewer believe he could even read that many as you suggest.

    Perhaps if your criticisms were substance-based, we'd be less inclined to point out your childish hatred of opposing viewpoints.
    Factual statements all. That you refuse to admit as much is of little consequence to me.

    You have wedded yourself to an ideology that is at odds with our Constitution and founding principles, which means you have no other choice but to engage in childish antics with no substance. It's why you and your ilk have to constantly deride George Bush, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, etc. as fools, corrupt, incompetent, criminal, etc. If you actually had an ounce of honesty and intellectual integrity in your body, you might have to admit that Bush et. al. weren't nearly as bad as you think, and that Barack Obama et. al. aren't nearly as good as you think. You might even have to reexamine your allegiance to Democratic party, and lord knows that ain't going to happen...

    Yeah well you must not be very smart then because I read 8 or 9 books a day while reading and studying the required materials to pass classes...

    Or maybe you're just one of those speed readers who make up a fraction of a percent of college graduates who did nothing but sit in their dorm for 4 years and read and study. No dating or partying, no nothing but reading... If not, then you're full of as much **** as the other people who make such claims.

    Or you could mean "good sized" as in less than 300 pages. Even that would be a stretch since the average adult only reads about 2 words per second.

    What difference does it make how many damn books Bush read or didn't read? Or how big they were? How is this story even "breaking news"!?

    President to release memoirs!!! Historical first!!! Read all about it!!!

    So lame and childish...

    For such a scholar he left a paper trail as lame as his voting record in the Illinois senate.

    William Ayers... Couldn't have been the domestic terrorist of the same name could it?
    Nah.
    Obama would never have sympathies to radicals.

    Would he?

    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.
