Obama didn't attend security briefings, he was on the golf course, no wonder he and Joe Biden were informed.

Failed foreign policy = Obama

Failed domestic policy _ Obama

Obama is the fastest
to $5 Trillion in Debt.
Obama is the fastest to
a US Credit Downgrade.
Obama is the fastest to
blame a video
instead of himself for exposing
our Ambassador to Al-qaeda
and getting him killed.

America is falling apart, divided. We have our soldiers and diplomats dying because of the strangulation of rules and regulations while FIGHTING wars.

We're $16 trillion in debt,
have high cost of food and gas,
we're still dependent on foreign energy from unstable regions of the world.

We have a president unwilling to work with other duly elected officials of his country;

a President who goes on the radio with Pimp with a Limp,

who appears on tv shows: The View, David Letterman, Jon Stewart to give Americans 'the news'

What kind of President is that?

it is a sad day for a society with huge global problems to celebrate some egomaniac, sponsored by a completely useless product that contributes nothing to society other than health problems, multimillion dollar jump from space. The Red Bull jump from the edge of space was shown live around the world with more than eight million people watching on YouTube, a record in itself. The feat was also broadcast on more than 40 networks across 50 countries, while more than 3 million tweets were sent about the jump including those from people encouraged by Red Bull to send their questions for Baumgartner’s post-jump press conference. Red Bull has not made public how much the stunt - which included funding the equipment, training and support staff – cost, although the balloon that took Baumgartner on his ascent is reported to have cost $70,000. If we, as a society, had any sense or conscience we would surely boycott such blatant and absurdly useless commercialism! The flock of sheep no longer realizes when the sheep are being sheared ...

You're on the wrong forum! There is a forum for people just like you interested in gossip and innuendo and stupidity only; the only requirement is a roomtemp IQ ...

You're a sad, pathetic little person. You and your multiple personalities. I'm sure that being a shut-in in some run-down trailer in the backwoods of Louisiana provides you with little opportunity to enjoy anything beyond spending all day, every day talking to yourself on message boards, but there are agencies that will assist you. Get a life.

This is called capitalism. The right of a company to spend its money anyway it wants.

You ever watched a sporting event? Sponsorship is everywhere and the consumer pays for it. You'd have to boycott a lot of companies, not just Red Bull. The Republicans in Washington even demanded and got a race car to sponsor the US Army - at tax payer expense.
