Why don't you quote the WHOLE thing in context instead of doing a FOX job on it?
SEOUL, South Korea - At the tail end of his 90 minute meeting with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev Monday, President Obama said that he would have "more flexibility" to deal with controversial issues such as missile defense, but incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin needs to give him "space."
The exchange was picked up by microphones as reporters were let into the room for remarks by the two leaders.
The exchange:
President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it's important for him to give me space.
President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…
President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.
President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.
When asked to explain what President Obama meant, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications Ben Rhodes told ABC News that there is room for the U.S. and Russia to reach an accommodation, but "there is a lot of rhetoric around this issue - there always is - in both countries.

Yes, I understood he was selling out our national security to a country that has never kept a treaty.

When Obama is the biggest follower and the Bush-clone, he would end up getting the polls as Bush did, because Obama has been over-acting and committing the over-do more than Bush, as identical to Bush in most everything:-----

------Axis-of-evil standpoint

------Going on now, more than extending Bush agenda-Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea, China, and more

------High debts building and net loss of jobs more than Bush

------Talking Obamacare is not a bad word, and pointing finger to Romneycare

------Nothing of any Democrats version, as wanting to be Republican BUSH business in most every doing

-----Much more of nothing of anything as the NOBODY OBAMA

-----STILL NOT AWARE OF BEING REJECTED BY OVERWHELM MAJORITY

-----By making over-doing of more than Bush === polls would end up worse than Bush had, in the final end

-----Because Bush being unlikeable, anyone being the disciple and follower AS Bush -Clone === Unlikeable === REJECTED === EJECT === LOW polls

Why would lobs be shitting? The repub candidate was a liberal just a few years ago?

When Romney was governor he supported gay marriage, pro-choice, universal healthcare, and stated the bush tax cuts would harm the economy.

Romney would clearly say anything to get elected to any office, so nobody knows what he really believes.

Even better, all the retards and freaks are out.

Libs are shitting because GWB handed obama and the dems a great big huge fat softball to slam out of the park. Super majorities in both house of congress, a really pissed off society ready for his brand of change. And now what? Dems have lost everything since 2008. Dems got gang raped in 2010. obamacare may get over turned. Do I need to go on?

Nobody will vote "for" the republicans. they will vote "against" dems.

Libs are going poo-poo and for good reason.

From the AP: "WASHINGTON (AP)— A major donor to President Barack Obama has been accused of defrauding a businessman and impersonating a bank official, creating new headaches for Obama's re-election campaign as it deals with the questionable history of another top supporter."

It’s hard to be an arse when people can see your arse

But talk to a naked person and you see that they are as vulnerable as you. Without clothes, there’s no way to be pompous: you can’t be an arse when people can see your arse. Undressed together, our sense of the humanity of all our fellows would grow. A naked Croydon would be a gentler, more connected Croydon. And most surely, a naked Croydon council meeting would be transformed.

I’m really not kidding. All day at the race a single thought kept coming back to me until finally I spoke it aloud. Fearing to sound foolish, I said to my friend:“This is like Eden”. And he responded simply:“Yes”.

He ran the race in twenty-five minutes, finishing in the top third of a field of 120 runners. For him, I think, it was the celebration he’d hoped for. For me, it was a revelation. I loved my day in the garden. There’s a lesson here for Croydon and for the world.

It was a small/medium boarding school in the West Midlands that has since joined with another one.

The early morning runs were normal for the time, and nothing unusual. Having prefects look after punishment runs or detentions, again was normal; most schools where this happened had a system where the prefects could cane a boy, or more often report them to a teacher for a caning - we had the later.

Most prefects were fine, one or two misused their power. In this situation they were going to get you caned, it was just a case of what excuse they used - typical things were being late turning up, or being cheeky, or "not trying". We just had to accept that we were going to be made to report to a teacher, wearing only our shorts and get 6 strokes of the cane.

Well I think its a morning run at a boarding school



This ties in eactly with what happened at my boarding school in the early 60's.

We were a boys only school, and every morning we had to complete a 2 mile run in the school gronds/local woods/fields. Kit was shorts and plimsolls, always stripped to the waist, even in the middle of winter.

Punishment runs were also given, these took place after school, and were looked after by prefects. 2 laps of the morning route, making 4 miles in all - same kit, shorts, plimsolls, no shirt or socks. Once or twice we were made to run barefoot as well by the more sadistic of the prefects. If they chose to, they could report a boy for being late or slow changing, dirty kit, not trying or any other reason they thought of - nearly always this resulted in being made to report to the gym and being caned in just your pe shorts.

Our indoor pe kit was shorts only, as was normal at the time.

And I haven't even mentioned the cold showers!

it sounds as though you were amazed to watch the video and to realise what boys had to wear when they were sent out on a run at that time.But that was how it was when I was at an all boys grammar school from 1955-61. Public schools were also notorious for sending boys out for an early morning daily run all year round in just shorts and plimsolls followed when they got back by cold showers. Prince Charles was famously sent to Gordonstoun and hated it! I was about to post my comments when up popped Maltamon to add further confirmation. It certainly sounded a sadistic regime at his school, even before mentioning the cold showers!
