But, but, we have new allies now. Hugo Chavez, Castro, Ortega, Hamas. President Obama is dumping our allies because they aren't his.

Actually, you don't have anything to say. I'm saying 'I told you so' right now and all you have is the same old song you've been singing for 8 years.[/quote]



Do you think about what you post?



You are saying you are doing right now during Obama's presidency what he was doing during Bush's presidency... yet you have a problem with him, but are shocked anyone might have a problem with you.



Interesting argument.

Pal, it's like your using Rove's partisan playbook. If you insist upon posting such partisan posts you have to expect to be responded to in kind. Just the way it is.

Criticizing the administration may or may not be partisan. But trying to distract from that criticism by going on about George Bush or screeching about "all white hate parties" definitely is.

If these guys have a problem with the post then why can't they respond like you did and discuss the substance of the OP, instead of ridiculous distractions?

Who is president right now and who was the OP about? I don't really care if someone hates George Bush or not. But it's not a valid response to criticism of the current president.

Maybe you got ridiculous distractions because there was no substance in your op. Air travel was grounded due to the ash from the volcano and a number of leaders who would have attended did not because of it. To insinuate that Obama insulted anyone for not being there was moronic. Hence, your thread turned to shit because that is what is was from the get go.

Or maybe you just aren't capable of anything besides distractions.

Valid or not, it's interesting that you call someone else out for behavior that you also exhibit.



There's a word for that, I just can't remember what it is right now...

Is that right? Maybe you can provide a link where someone posted and article critical of George Bush and I started screeching about Bill Clinton.

Gypsy had an argument with the substanceof the OP and posted an actual argument. That's great. She brought some valid points up. Ranting about rethugs ruining the country has absolutely nothing to do with the OP. It's just a distraction from people who are incapable of debating the point. Just like getting mad at me personally for posting something critical of the President is.

Posting something critical of the president and posting something that is plain fucking stupid are two different things.



Flights are grounded due to ash, noone is flying, many leaders don't show up and you are critisizing the president because he didn't make it?




What the fuck did you want him to do?
