Well I'm not arguing that it happens all over the world.  The Vietnamese came south and evicted the Khmer.  My point was not condemnation but honesty -- that Americans need to be honest and not so in-your-face holy.

Economy in tatters, worst unemploymment since the depression, unprecedented debt, a failed economic policy and no budget since taking office.  What a record, can Obama fail at anything else?  Well, yes he can, how about foreign policy.  What a mess this incompetent fool and his band of progressive misfits have made of foreign policy.

You must be kidding, right? I guess Obama is to blame for almost every other country in the world then.

Well since many blame the US, and he is our President, it kinda/sorta makes sense.

The left blamed Bush for every single thing that happened anywhere in the world at anytime so why should Obama miss out?   Are saying that Obama, in the same office,  can't cause as much damage as Bush?  Hmmm, am I sensing some racism here?   Just sayin'  LMAO

Bush was ragged on for illegal wars. Hardly the same thing as the economy...

The economy was doing fine for most of GWB's terms so there wasn't much to rag on. But as soon as Obama took office the Dems claimed (and are still claiming) that it was/is all GWB's fault. It goes with the terrority. Like a sports coach. Credit for the wins comes with blame for the losses.

You don't live here in the states so you missed the ridiculous level of rhetoric aimed at the man from the left.  Regardless, my post was a joke so lighten up Francis.

Are you calling Obama a Leader? The man is president but as far as leadership goes I think he is a 'little' lax.

No, I am not calling him a leader. But, that is one of the first rules of leadership. When things go wrong, it is YOUR fault.

Very true, that is one of the first rules of leadership. A good leader accepts that responsibility and takes the blame. Obama would due best if he just admitted that the economy, the war, the unemployment rate, etc. Are all his fault in totality and as he once said, "the buck stops with me".

He is a man-child without a scintilla of leadership ability. An empty suit that is a shill for the forces behind him. The idiot can't even speak without a teleprompter and hje has never had a real job in his life.

American exceptionalism is what made and makes US who we are and you just said it's stupid. You said if the POTUS was against it then that would be an excellent stance to support. Therefore you are against America.

Lol. That's the most twisted logic I've heard yet. Are you even serious or just a troll?

You don't believe in anything the constitution stands for except the rules that allow for ratifying it only because that gives you a glimmer of hope to render the whole thing void. You make no secrets here about how you feel. I've never once heard you say anything positive about the country. You're filled with resentment and want reparations.

wow. not a true word here either. Is this typical behavior from the right, where you just make up stuff as you go along?

Your problem is that you don't seem to understand that I'm proud of many of the very things you hate and hate the very things you're proud of. But it goes in one ear and out the other.
