    But you guys keep throwing out that race card...what you're going to accomplish is making an intelligenct and progressive political leader diminished to having his only legacy being that he was the first black man. That's gonna help you guys out a whole lot...LOL

    I hadn't seen that about Michelle. What I have consistently seen is this:

    It's hilarious! Michelle is not attractive at all. Perhaps if you didn't act like a blind partisan you would laugh, too.

    Same thing. I think the office of presidency is owed a certain amount of respect.

    We as a nation need to stop pointing fingers, and start just condemning those on the lunatic fringe who act the asshole. It is not, and should not be a partisan issue.

    To think that any of this is new is a result of very selective memory, or pure ignorance.

    Everyone in this nation is looking out for their own interests (I can't say I blame them)... but they're willing to do some pretty ****ty things to achieve their ends.

    I think of it like this... You notice how people behave in traffic? If they behave in traffic in such a way to people they absolutely don't know... for such small rewards.. How do you think they'll behave when larger personal rewards are possible?

    Basically, I've given up on the population as a whole.
    And other countries don't do this? Hope you don't really believe that they don't.

    First we had the Palin crowd shouting things like "Kill him" in regards to Barack Obama.

    Then we had the folk that showed up at town hall meetings, yelling and disrupting.

    Now we have Joe Wilson shouting out during the President's address to Congress, Serena Williams fighting with the line judge and Kayne West interrupting the VMA awards.

    Are we seeing a new rise of incivility in America today?


    so it wasn't when movies about assasinating bush came out, it wasn't when politicians on the left called troops nazis, murderers and war criminals, It wasn't when a hurricane was blamed on a president, it wasn't when protestors carried signs for troops to shoot thier officers.


    nah, its now, that there is a "rise"
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    The pic got a smile from me but i have to disagree on Michelle. She is very pretty and her dress sense is to die for.

    I notice a total failure to answer the question. That speaks volumes.

    I think she is a classy looking woman, if a bit mannish.
