Go ahead and make too much out of it.

But what are the odds bin Laden would spell the vice president's name by removing three consecutive letters?

It's just odd. That's all I ever said it was.

Any American president with the middle name "Hussein" is odd in this day and time.

Radical Muslims aren't impressed, I'm pretty sure.

You'd think it wouldn't have even taken that considering this president's history, affilations and having no qualifications whatsoever.

Go figure. It's you I'm worried about. Not him.

Don't know. They are in the military. They disappear from time to time. You ask them 'Where you been?'. They say 'Away'. You know not to ask more.

On a side note, when the wife was still a travel agent her company had the government contract. She would come on and say I just sent a bunch of people to such 'n' such place. We would watch the news and sure enough a few days later something would happen there.

If a white presidential candidate's "spiritual mentor" preached racial hatred from the pulpit, they'd be vilified and disqualified.
But a black presidential candidate's "spiritual mentor" preaching racial hatred and vilifying white Americans from the pulpit is A-okay.
I don't get it.

Exactly what are you talking about?Countless presidents were self proclaimed racist, owning slaves & all. Even signed the constitution that stated black people were only 1/3 human. Not to mention, there just happened to be recordings of Romney's 47% blunder, but no recording of Obama at any of the sermons of racial rhetoric. You people look for contrast, & when you can't find any, you make shit up!

How did he sell out his mother?
And please, don't repeat any of the right whiner e-mail crap.
Since his books had few pictures, I seriously doubt you ever read them.
Why would I want to read that garbage that he didn't even write? He claimed a lot of things about his mother that simply were not true.

Wrong! It was 3/5 and happened after the civil war and it was because if the slaves were counted as a whole person the south would have had a super majority in the House. The thirteenth amendment, which abolished slavery, would never had been passed without it. In which case the United States as we know it may never have happened.

What about all the deaths caused by Obama?
Congress gave Bush permission to go into Iraq including 111 Democrats.
You really must keep all switches on at all times.
What deaths caused by Obama? Osama bin Laden? HE didn't start those incompetently run wars; he didn't arrogantly ignore warnings from the CIA and FBI. Wanta' guess what else the simple Shrub did? "Bipartisan Elites: Yes, the Bush Administration Totally Tortured
Brutal, illegal interrogation tactics are detailed in a new reckoning assembled by centrist, establishment types." (you can check the current "Atlantic" for complete details.)

I think we ought to try him in Texas. I don't even believe in capital punishment, but I could vote to fry him and Darth Cheney without batting an eye...good thing they already allow execution of the retarded in Texas.

Now run along & blow your friend who told you to destroy something you had no had in creating. By your stink attitude, I would take a wild guess that you can't procreate.

The ones the ACLU is complaining about, idiot!

The CIA and the military are carrying out an illegal “targeted killing” program in which people far from any battlefield are determined to be enemies of the state and killed without charge or trial.

"The executive branch has, in effect, claimed the unchecked authority to put the names of citizens and others on “kill lists” on the basis of a secret determination, based on secret evidence, that a person meets a secret definition of the enemy."
