    Fine. Then why would Obama reference his study...and then spin what he said to make it sound different? Don't you find that rather idiotic?

    Dude...you keep trying to minimize the importance of this issue, but any way you slice it, Obama ****ed up and now he's lost a talking point.

    Sucks to be him, eh?

    Obama didn't spin it. The corporate media spun it and the President responded. And I don't find it ironic that the corporate media spun it.

    Didn't spin it?

    He quoted the study as supporting his point when it doesn't at all. That's pretty much the very definition of spin.

    Actually, we have yet to determine the email,don't we? Remember Breitbart and Sherrod lies he told? Remember how Bush claimed McCain had a black child, or Vietnamese children?

    Emails, schmemails..the whole thing is a political scheme to make the President look bad.

    Why don't you guys ever focus on real news?

    Romney and Obama would be/are just as useless as the other at being POTUS...just in somewhat different ways.

    I'm just not sure what McCain's adopted child has to do with Pres. Obama's use of a study that finds exactly the opposite of what he says it does.

    I get the impression you'll say anything to defend Pres. Obama no matter how wrong he is.

    There's no email from the President. It's a republican campaign tactic to smear the President, like Bush's campaign tactic was to smear McCain.

    Find a topic with valid and true information on the President for us to discuss. It's only there you'll find out my views. But on this load of right wing pundit lies, I'm not defending the President, I'm exposing the baser nature of republicans.

    Common sense.

    Look at their positions.

    Massive deficit spending, interventionist foreign policy, big government, less individual freedoms...both parties suck.

    America needs a balanced budget, cut defense spending, bring all the troops home, no corporate/bank bailouts, no stimulus, less powerful Fed, smaller government, more individual freedoms AND responsibilities.
