He's pretty much proved how he'll behave in a second term.

The Republiclowns are caving on everything!!

He will drive a hard bargain with Putin. The Russian is behaving like a dictator.

Wasn't it Bush who said;

"I looked the man in the eye. I was able to get a sense of his soul."

I'm certain Obama wil not be fooled so easily.

You're a nitwit. Go away for the rest of the evening.

I prefer the newer, funnier Carol's to the fat, racist one.

That's probably what Putin is singing right now.
Seeing Obama now has the "flexibility" he once promised.
So, seriously, Homer. What do you think he meant by that?

No Carol, Obamaís didnít use those exact words but his objective is the same!! It wasnít about Uniting a Nation it was a declaration of political war on individual liberty!!
Strange fellow, he is. Creates invisible wars on every front before the election and then waves his hand and says let's all get along now since my invisible wars worked.

I don't trust strange fellows.

You have a lot of nerve calling me the nitwit after that post.

Flex-i-ble: adj. 1. Capable of being bent or flexed; pliable.
b. Capable of being bent repeatedly without injury or damage.
2. Susceptible to influence or persuasion. 3. Fooled easily.

I added the last one just to prove a point and it fit so nicely with the others.

NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla.-

Two lemurs were captured early Monday morning after they escaped from their cages and one scratched a 2-year-old girl.

About 2 a.m., North Miami Beach Police received the call about the lemurs which were loose near 2049 NE 173rd Street.

"This is the first time I've been dispatched to a call like this," said North Miami Beach Police Sgt. Richard Rand.

Officers arrived to find one lemur in a tree and the other one block away.

A 2-year-old girl, who was returning home with her parents, was scratched as she got out of her family's car when the lemur jumped into her arms. The child suffered scratches to her face and was treated at the scene.

Surveillance video showed a dog barking at one of the lemurs as it walked across a fence.

"They were scared. They were running around. Everybody was chasing them, a lot of lights," said Julio Hincapie, who owns the lemurs.

Officers have reunited the lemurs with Hincapie. Police say he claims someone broke into the cages in his back yard by cutting the lock.

"Someone was trying to steal two of my lemurs," said Hincapie.

"He walks around with them like anybody, just like a regular pet. Instead of having a dog, he got a monkey," said neighbor Carlos Lezcano.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says it's common for people to have pet lemurs, but owners must have proper permits.

More science involved in the effect of solar flares on global temperatures than there is in man-made global warming, which is largely political.
But, go ahead, just ignore real science for Algore BS.
Doubtful.

The science of global warming is not political

Te right decided to make it political.

Its just typical. The Republican Party ignores what is best for the planet for the betterment of their pathetic party.

Just like they did with the good of our country.

Back when Republicans were true patriots, they believed in Man made global warming.

Since then, they discovered it was easier to get votes by dumbing down their base. A really easy task.

Oh, say, does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free
And the home of the brave.

Well, it used to.

Our military is about to become weakened.
And our freedoms thrown to the four winds.

But it used to. Warts and all.
