    LOL. Maybe that's why he mumbles that second line.

    I can't respond to points that were probably taken out of context or misquoted. I'm guessing Obama's staff said that he wasn't bowing down to anyone. Bowing, even in many cultures other than the far east, is appropriate and respectful. If he didn't floss one night, you'd accuse him of being a filthy slob. Try to be a little objective and see the big picture.

    Since Obama has replaced the pompous buffoon that preceeded him, the image of the USA has soared in the eyes of the world.

    They are enjoying their "freak show". Other than that, nothing has changed. We are not getting better cooperation and we certainly are not safer.

    What does the rest of the world do to prevent terrorism?
    Don't forget about the fact that it is not customary for heads of state to bow to each other. You are right if it was customary then his staff would not be denying it but embracing it.

    He is still campaigning but the only difference is that he isn't getting what he wants when he travels abroad.

    It is not clear that the world is pleased with him so far at least not in my eyes. The second part of your statement is pure bullshit.

    fear of those who are different than them? I am curious what do you mean by this....different how?

    do you think that they do understand but just disagree.


    Looks to mee like the strongly approve and strongly disapprove are pretty damn close.

    What the hell does this have to do with this discussion.

    I guess if you can't answer a question you try and redirect the conversation. Great job you are the poster child for the far left.

    It shows your willingness to present false arguments (or the inability to recognize the same). There's little use in my responding to your question ("different how?") because it isn't sincere. You're not interested in having a rational or civil discussion. You evidently are more interested in taking sides (whether or not there's true disagreement) and fighting and calling someone names ("the far left"? Ooh, that stings).

    I deleted the post because it wasn't really germane to this thread, and I shouldn't have posted it in the first place.

    Willingness to present false arguments, that is a joke man. I was hoping you could come up with at least something that is actually truthful.

    The question is valid and can help determine the actual message you were trying to relay.

    Take sides, are you so blind that you actual believe that is not what you do on most threads. Is that not what you just did in the post I responded to. Get off your high horse son.

    saying someone is far left is now calling that person names? Wow next time I get cut off driving i will say that person is "far left" instead of something else....lol

    Oh come on spider. The official "Obama never bowed to the Saudi Dictator" was all over the place and aired by every network. If it was customary, Obama would have been bowed to too. You had to have seen it. It appears that your love affair with "The Messiah" has clouded your objectivity. Don't worry, it won't be long and he will have you "spreading your wealth". Your song and dance will soon change. Isn't it wonderful that your kids and grandkids will be paying excessively forever the debt now being rung up. It all irratates me to no end. You'll soon see the light.

    What way of cooperation has changed or are they just enjoying "the show"?

    There is not much to be done about the 20 percent or so of Americans who wallow in ignorance of things they don't understand and fear of those who are different than them.

    Sounds like you are saying that anyone that has my viewpoint is ignorant. How hateful of you and how bigoted.
    Sounds like you are calling everyone that dislikes Obama a racist. Are you really this much of a buffoon? I go to a multi-racial church, support missions in places comprising a rainbow of skin colors, and volunteer countless hours to help prepare 2 black people and one guy from India to get ready for the ministry. There is only one white person in that class. A very good friend of mine, Marvin Sprouse, was the VP canidate running with Alan Keyes for Presidency. Don't lay this racist bull crap on me. It makes you look like an idiot.
