    Oh, I definitely agree with you regarding the over-reacting.

    That's because you're a completely reasonable person. Sad to say it but that's a huge compliment round these parts, lol.

    Indeed. It was an irritating news cycle during his first year in office. Bad gifts to the British, returning gifts, etc etc. Only the sort of thing partisan hacks use.

    You keep harping on something that has no bearing on anything...my label. Well my smart friend, I am not completely conservative, but I am completely against Obama and labels are useless except to very people of your ilk.

    Seriously....I'm glad the Republicans are always here to tell us about these thing. If it wasn't for brave House Republicans and the right wing noise machine I would of never known that Obama replaced Churchill with Lincoln! How freaking un American!!!!

    I imaging the conversation went like this: The economy is in shambles, china now owns us, the world is at war, big business is polluting our planet......what we really need now is to bring back the statue of Churchill because it will obviously solve our many problems, because we certainly can't seem to do **** about it.

    Your label is just one small issue.

    I also understand your complete support in the distraction of House Republicans from critical issues to focus on a statue. Glad you support them in their endevours of distraction. The economy is in the tubes, housing is down, unemployment is horrible, but you want the House Republicans to focus on getting a statue.

    With all those profound thoughts in mind, why do you think Obama took the time to do just that...send back a bust? Couldn't his time have been better spent fixing the economy? I guess not, he's rather take vacations and send his wife around the world at our expense. The "world" isn't at war, just us as we think we are the police of the world.

    Re: Boehner: We'll take Churchill bust in the Capitol

    What's the point of this thread other than to make fake hay out of thin air?

    Democrats don't like Churchill? Republicans like busts of former British PM's? At this particular moment in time, THIS silliness is what is posted in ... er umm... <looks up> ah yes... "Breaking News - Blogs". Whew... what a relief AdamT you're here to inform us all of how utterly ignorant Democrats can be by thinking this is at all relevant to ANYTHING...

    Keep up the good work!
