How many of you know that the Taliban just released a video of a captive American soldier? I guess it would tarnish Obama's image as Commander in Chief so nobody's interested.


This guy has been a captive since June....and during the Bush presidency this would be the lead story....but hardly a peep these days. The guy has been there long enough to grow a beard. Seems the Obama Administration has forgotten about him. He's CIC yet he doesn't seem to care about an American who's a POW as we speak. I was wondering why he hasn't given a speech about it lately.



I'm just trying to point out the obvious double-standard of the MSM but after starting this thread I realized that Obama hasn't said shit about it.

You mean why hasn't the left and MSM blamed Obama for it like they did Bush? Why would they? After all, the left and MSM elected the idiot.

It's just a matter of time before the 'great one' takes over the media - completely. Hugo Chavez anyone?

So you assume everyone knows this.....that just too stupid.

I remember that during the Bush years the press would be trumpeting any dip-shit that spoke up against Bush.

Ether way they would try to use it to turn us against the war.

Obama broadcasts to the world he's gonna attack Kandahar in June yet he won't say shit about one of our POWs because it may give away some big secret.

Come on!!:cuckoo:

This guy or any American POW is the last thing on Obama's mind.

OMG, and here I thought the people voted! Sorry that democracy bothers you people, but that's the way it works.




"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."

Not as important as saving all the poor dying people, surely?

And.... he doesn't 'rule'.... he 'governs'..... by consent.... (at least it was by consent).

This whole war thing has started to piss me off a bit. I think our first priority should be to have the troops over there turning over every rock and possible hide outs in the search for bin Laudin. Don't fuck with anybody unless they get in your way of doing this. Go anywhere and everwhere looking for this asshole. Find him. Kill him. Then come home. If people get in your way of the search for this worm, then deal with them as needed to continue the search. We are doing nothing over there except pissing in the wind... The assholes there have been fighting for two thousand years and 10 minutes after we leave the country they will be fighting again. Fuck 'em all. I say get the bin Laudin asshole and come home.

And why is no one talking about the rise in gas prices? I know with the start of the summer season the prices go up, but come on! We're almost at $3.00 a gallon again.

Obama continues to get a big wet kiss from the lamestream media ... just like he always has.

The simple fact is this. Throughout the entire Bush Administration the MSM had an agenda. Undermine/destroy the Presidency and Administration of George W. Bush. Why? Because they felt that their shining hero Clinton was destroyed by the GOP for no reason. There is no such thing as perjury when Democrats lie....it's all a case of "he misspoke".

Now that they have duped America into voting in this socialist version of Bush with a slick talking rhetoric that rivals Bernie Madoff's sales pitch they just can't stand the comparisons to Bush's term in office...all negative subjects relating to the war are strictly off limits...all negative subjects on domestic policy are off limits. These are the new rules for the MSM...when the Republicans take back power it will reverse once again.

It's the same old shit.
