What made you think that was directed at you personally? I mean, other than your admission of it right here?

Do you always hit yourself when you swing at people? :lol:

I am not sure why there would even be a question as to whether the commander in chief should respect our country which it seems to me, Neanderthal that i am, is the issue here. Please see my recent post; "The wrong debate"

I'm not sure why there is any question of our Commander in Chief respecting our country.

It's a completely phony issue.

Patriotism is not a "one-size-fits-all" concept. From his earliest days as an adult, President Obama has shown his devotion to this country by foregoing lucrative opportunities in favor of serving its poorest people.

I know, it's not a concept most Republicans readily understand, but making personal sacrifices through public service ranks very highly on the patriotism scale.

The original "patriots" were those who left their homes and farms for the good of all. Where is it written that "patriotism" is limited to soldiering? In the modern era, we've had the Peace Corps, and Americorps. Those were/are for the "unpatriotic?"

Obama could have made tons in a Wall Street firm. But he chose to work with the poor in Chicago.

Who are you to say that's not "patriotic?"

How many personal opportunities have you passed up for the benefit of those less fortunate than you?

What is patriotic about stealing the fruit of my labor to give to someone else. The original patriots took out of their own pockets.

What is patriotic about going to Columbia on my dime?

And what is altruistic about spending HALF A BILLION DOLLARS to get a job that pays $400k?

Obama and the rest of D.C. might be fooling most of the country, but it's a same to see a man fool himself.

Hey, you know what just occurred to me?

The original "patriots" actually were "terrorists" who not only didn't salute the flag, or cover their hearts during "God Save the King," but sought to overthrow that gov't and famously attacked an encamped enemy on Christmas night in Trenton.

Those guys were and are our model "patriots." Not conformists, patriots. They were people who decided what the country needed and worked for it THEIR WAY.

And, if you liked HALF A BILLION DOLLARS, you'll love unlimited corporate "free speech." :roll:

Yes "terrorists" and "patriots" all kind of depend upon whose side you're on.

If you are Ziggy B handing out weapons for the Carter administration, then Bin Laden is a "patriot" and a "freedom fighter", otherwise, he's a "terrorist".

So my question is, what is what is Obama doing employing associates of KNOWN "terrorists"?

A NEW brain for Barack Obama! It's 78 years old and it still works perfectly. It belongs to Zbigniew Brzezinski, the peppery ex-national security adviser to Jimmy Carter.

THAT's what's known as Exhibit "A" to the "Law of Unintended Consequences." And don't forget: Ronnie Ray-guns played with those boys too. Like Cheney did with Saddam. And on and on.

So do they let you use the misdeeds of others to mitigate your clients misdeeds in court?

I thought BHO was all about "Change"?

The only "Change" involved so far is "Brother Can You Spare a Dime?" :D
