    But everyone should, for due to his fiendishly devious cleverness he is extremely dangerous, still.

    His first political opponent was eliminated from the ballot by having all the signatures on his electoral petition declared invalid. His next two opponents went down in flames after their supposedly sealed divorce records were unsealed. John McCain crashed and burned when the United States banking system suffered a banking panic unseen since 1903. All coincidences whose probability of their occurrences far exceed that of pure chance alone. Do you roll sevens or elevens every time you pick up the dice? Barack does.


    Women had orgasms and men fainted when Hitler spoke. Having exquisitely honed skills in oratory does not a benign or benevolent leader make.

    Funny you should mention bullies.

    Since he took office the Manchild-in-Chief and his congressional toadies have bullied:

    Las Vegas
    Doctors
    Insurance companies
    Energy producers
    Auto makers
    Benjamin Netanyahu
    Corporate aircraft operators


    And that's just for starters.

    Seems the bullied have told him to fuck off, and he's got nothing.

    Yea, cuz that's what we need. A bully. :lol:

    Can I just point out - rationally - how ridiculous that is. No offense, mo chara.... but what we actually need is a fucking leader - not a fucking bully. That is, of course, my opinion. But I vote for leaders - I sure as hell don't vote for bullies, and I don't run from them either. Didn't when I was a kid. Ain't gonna start now.

    Obama seems to avoid confrontation and seek compromise at all costs. He needs to appeal directly to the people and hold his ground

    Too many times he is the only person in the room who is compromising

    *shrugs* far be it from me to speak up for obama ;) but, it sounds to me at least by the examples Martin used, Obama didn't do what HE Martin wanted, so this equals lack of spine.

    take the speech date, obama made a foolish play or that his handlers did, he or they put obama in an impossible position.

    The Lieberman committee issue? If Reid had stripped him it would have made the Dems look small and petty, ( he still caucuses with them) I think Obama was right to talk Harry down, now, expecting Lieberman to then show gratitude by overthrowing his conscience? *shrugs* I don't see how that follows.

    The Wall st. bonus issue? Kind of hard to talk tough when you are giving tarp to banks who reward the very same isn't it?

    and this;

    first the statement is dripping with irony, second this guy has a very short memory.


    IF he were to use say Putin, and that mess, I agree, or say Zelaya? Agreed again....

    You mean like he "avoid(ed) confrontation and (sought) compromise at all costs" when he rammed ObolshevikCare up our asses?
