    Irrelevant -- you could still answer, with specifics.

    And I would take this silliness seriously even if we were talking abut Bush or Palin.
    I doubt that.

    Doesn't matter what you doubt or don't doubt. Can you provide any instance where I have ever picked some silliness like this to start a thread. If you can't, then the facts support me.

    But we are not called on to answer general conversation questions. Nor are others asked to answer for us. This really is irrelevant silliness.

    Well it just seems that no matter what Obama says or does, you'll find a problem with it no matter what, so why should I give a crap?

    I honestly think conservatives are worried he has a bigger member then they do :p

    Nor to me if you claim the contrary.

    As noted before -- if He says there are problems, and He is said to have fixed some of them, it is -more- than reeaonable to ask what those problems are, which ones He has fixed, which problems remain, and what He plans to do about them.

    And I really dont have the time to waste on that.
    The issue being what exactly?

    You're not going to accept anything other than what The Obama has claimed as a problem in our democracy, so what is there to discuss? But as far as anyone can see, The Obama hasn't made such a statement. So I guess you're just going to keep waiting?

    It was merely a statement which was to show that a perfect democracy is unattainable. Something that even YOU won't disagree with, am I correct? So what exactly is the issue with what The Obama has said about "working on our democracy?"

    What you are doing is petty. I think I've done enough to show that, so I'm done.

    What is irrelevant is questioning this. It really feels like a poor self esteem issue.

    Give Him a pass if you want -- I'm not surprised -- but don't try to blame -your- lack of curiosity on anything having to do with me.

    If that's what lets you sleep at night.
    But, thank you for not wasting any more of my time with your equivocations, misdirections and obfuscations.

    "Private interests" are people or persons influencing the political system for personal gain such as businesses.
