    You have to admit the there is a huge percentage of Republicans / conservatives who delight when Obama has trouble. Why was there celebrating by right-wingers when Chicago did not get the Olympics after Obama put a personal appeal in?

    I don't know about the housing market, but I saw many on the left seem to take delight in the difficulties Bush had with Iraq because they were so opposed to war.

    I don't agree with everything the moderators say or do, but I do notice a pattern: the amount that the moderators hassle a poster is directly proportional to the number of inflammatory, aggressive or troll-ish posts that person makes. Something to think about.

    PS I don't think I've ever seen Schlottke make a personal attack, unless you count "dittohead" on this thread.

    Hello...Obama is a Kenyan.

    I think there's a difference between people who delight when Obama/Bush failed, and what we're tlaking about here. I have no doubt that people take delight when Obama has trouble with something as trivial (in the grand scheme of things) as getting the Olympics, seeing him "put in his place" or whatever. But, outside of only the most effed up people, I don't think the "other side" takes delight when people die.

    Example: If 30 people are killed and it is in someway tieable to Obama, I don't think most right wingers are ecstatic that 30 people are dead. They may use the incident to hammer Obama, but that is, very sadly, the way the game is played now. And I mean this both ways, I don't think left wingers were taking delight from serious problems affecting America during Bush's term, even if they used them to hammer Bush.

    From what little I've read I think one could reasonably conclude he is a terrorist. Just as the Rico Statutes came about to expand the scope from the individual to a more appropriate organized group (along with new authority on how to collect, admit evidence and prosecute those involved, in today's new world, we must view and respond to terrorism differently. The key is in the appropriateness in how we try to adjust.
