    Obama's support for a change in how the US deals with issues in the Middle East is causing concern in Washington. Obama is scoring points and the right doesn't like it. John Boehner has proved he has no balls and who he really is concerned with. Unfortunately, what is good for America is not on his priority list.

    And, to hear Republicans bitching about Obama and his wife going to see a show in NY is also bogus. Sure, it cost this country lots of money to allow him to fly to NY, and for security, etc.. But, is it going to change the lifestyle of America because he did?? Lots of people who live in NY, the actors and actresses, etc, appreciated that Obama showed up to enjoy their performance and hospitality. To go after Obama for this is a mistake in my opinion.

    The fact that oil prices climb, even when a decline in demand is still in place makes me wonder why we still are paying those idiots in Congress. The fact that the Chinese seem to be the only buyers for the Hummer brand of vehicles makes me concerned since this company does supply the light transport vehicles to the US military. It is bad enough that the Chinks get to supply the berets our soldiers wear, but making our vehicles should not be permitted.

    The Republicans should be more concerned with finding issues that are real, and valuable to America's well being to focus their energy on. Nitpicking isn't going to get them back into the White House, or the Congress.

    The premise is dead on, but please check your facts:
    American General still makes the HumVee. The Hummer was the GM knock-off.

    Go take a dump. Iran liked Obama's new "tone" so much they jammed the broadcast of his speech.

    With whom is he scoring points?

    The Chinese are building all of our solar panels, too.

    Who is Obama scoring points with? Arabs? Last I checked, he is the President of the United States, not the President of the Middle East. He is supposed to represent US, not appease them.

    Nothing your entire post validates the projection in your thread title.

    Try again.

    It is my understanding that the commercial and the military Hummer are two totaly different companies. The Chineeez don't get the military version.

    I also believe that we remember Bush flying to crawford frequently and vacationing about a third of his presidency.

    Lacking vision? Based on what exactly? We have great vision for this country. We want to see this nation remain free. We want to keep the people who want to kill us from obtaining the means to do so. We want government out of our lives.

    While it's certainly true the Republican Party lacks any vision,regularly engages in rheotric which is unproductive and seems still to be mired in "culture war" nonsense, the Democratic Party is even worse (which I find hard to fathom but they've managed it in a very short period of time). Apparently Democrats have a "vision" alright, it's one that's been shared by left wingers of all strains (socialists, fascists, stalinists, early 20th century "Progressives" just to name a few) for decades, namely central economic planning and nearly complete control of every aspect of citizens daily lives.

    The current Republican Party is a just a bad cocktail party joke, the current incarnation of the Democratic Party is an out and out enemy of our founding principles and the liberties of individual Americans. The sooner the American Public stops paying attention to the "Obama Celebrity Show" and starts paying attention to the longer term consequences of this administrations REAL agenda the better off we'll all be.
