how can you improve relations with anyone without first understanding him or her?
and obama isn't being silent, here, is he?
he was, for weeks
gibbs kept saying it was an issue for new yorkers
that changed yesterday
here we go!
Religious beliefs are shoved into politics all the time... but if you truly believe that America will EVER condone the death penalty for adultery, lashing someone for having sex out of wedlock, or cutting someone's hands off for stealing... as The Prof feels he needs to shove into this discussion... you should take a drug test.

who ever guaranteed that everyone you must deal with in your affairs is as enlightened as yourself?
i'm not really holding anyone responsible for anything, but the electorate will, they'll hold lots of people accountable (80 days, baby!)
all i'm doing is observing and commenting very sincerely
this issue is gonna kill this president, it's another 70%'er for the krauthammer kids
he's a klutz, comprehensively clueless and incompetent
but it aint workingIf he keeps putting himself out there and being reasonable and creating environments and opportunities for interaction with the public, then he's doing what he should be doing.
maybe on paper, maybe in the abstract, maybe in harvard textbooks
but NOT in new york
ideals are pretty, but reality is rubber on road
i completely understandAs for the President, I don't give a damn about him.

When social change is your priority, and simply going about your business stirs up the haters, you're pretty much obligated to keep doing it.
In other words, the problem here isn't that he isn't being diplomatic, it's that he's got a bigger priority than diplomacy.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
