    Maybe Soros should re-invent mathematics instead. This way Obama could prove that his massive deficit is actually a surplus. Down is up. Bad is good. Poor is rich.

    That would mean Obama has to take responsibility for it.

    He's too busy mopping up someone else's mess and getting told how to hold the mop.

    As if he would ever use a mop in the first place. Too many servants around for him to do it himself.

    Which is pretty much the way his Administration works. He gives the speeches, acts like he's Mr Perfect and everyone around him does the dirty work.

    Heard he's been to the White House several times since Mr. Perfect became POTUS.

    Sorry, but that just offends my sense of right and wrong to the core.

    In my humble opinion there are two big picture problems..... POWER & PRECEDENT

    > Specific individuals notwithstanding, in general 'power' will NEVER not be abused. Therefore it should be spread as widely as possible - Free the States!​

    > 'Precedent' in law and in economics should be used with caution..... a great idea is not guaranteed to always be a great idea. Times and technology change, the way we do things should be more flexible to change with them.​

    you or the quote abuse?

    i don't think my complaint will lead to a better understanding of this quote and wiser use of it. but i will nevertheless voice my disgust.

    Either. And you do have the right to do so, as long as it's not defaming religions or anything else like that. ;)
