    So, he should send the Secret Service out to bust Cheney's chops ?
    and to hunt down and beat the crap out of EVERY vocal critic ?

    Ortega was not criticizing, not "slapping" Obama. He was criticizing the past American policies and actions that have irritated and abused Central and South America.

    Obama is not a beliigerent impatient rowdy brawling drunken slob, ready to take offense at every silly slight. He's a mature grown up who can see and maneuver past the petty turds floating in the water, ignoring them as turds.
    He will not let them, or any turd tossers, determine the futre of the nation.

    It's nice to have grown ups running the government.

    Wrong, they WERE criticizing the US, but Obama is ok with that, he agrees the country has sucked, until now. However, he was grateful that they weren't criticizing HIM for something that happened when he was 3 months old, (that has a 'ring' to it, sure we'll hear it again). It's all about Obama!

    Sure. He acted with class. He undermined Ortega's rant with a joke. He presented an American leader willing to engage listen, and doesn't go stomping off like an child if things don't go the way he wants.

    It's probably not a bad analogy.

    In (too) many threads you get "you're a jerk," then "you're an asshole," then "you're a fucktard" etc.

    Are those the more useful threads for debating issues, developing a good relationship with the other poster, learning things, finding common ground?

    Probably not.

    BO isn't going to be upset.

    Ortega did the same thing Obama did in Europe - criticize the United States
