Where are the photos of Obama in the Situtation Room while our Ambassador was under attack FOR OVER 7 HOURS in Libya?
Answer: He was asleep. Yes, even on 9/11 he was dead asleep like the inexperience amateur he is. That's why nobody, to this day, knows what Obama was doing during the attack. He was doing NOTHING! Hillary was awake doing the wrong things, but at least she was awake. She woke up, yawned a bit, and decided to do NOTHING!
They both should have been impeached. How anybody can take those two ass-clowns seriously anymore is beyond me. I have farts with more substance than those idiots.
Actually our economy is doing pretty good. Don't you have a job? As for his foreign policy, what's wrong with that as well. Last time I checked he hasn't started any wars that were complete BS like his predecessor, yet he still managed to give the kill order on Bin Laden, something that his predecessor failed to do. I also like how we send in drones to take bad guys out instead of sending in an army. As far as Benghazi goes... it's not the first time we have lost people after having a mob storm one of our embassies in a foreign country, and it won't be the last.

Based on what you posted, your "farts" are probably the only thing of substance about you.

Two points:

First, there is a lot of nasty, nasty talk directed back and fourth in these forums. I just don't get how that helps any ones argument.

Second, ok, I wouldn't say I am pro-Obama per se, but given the available list of alternatives I think he was the best candidate. There is all this belly aching about how bad the economy is doing, affordable health care act, national debt, etc. I just don't see the problems that a lot of people are talking about.

The biggest problem we are facing is debt. I'll agree that is a problem. President Obama has run up a huge bill, I'll admit. What was the alternative though? Our economy was in a nose dive for the toilet when he took office. Some say stimulus spending and bailing out the auto industry, banks, etc. was a bad move, but what was the alternative. If we had let the auto industry fail, let the banks fail, not done stimulus spending, etc. who here honestly thinks the economy would have just magically "righted" itself?

Another issue, the affordable health care act. Ok, so what is all the belly aching about? Who on here has lost their freaking health care or can't go see the doctor they have been seeing? I'm lower middle class income I guess (40-60k range income) and I have a group insurance plan through my employer. Guess what... nothing changed. Does anyone on here have a story to tell about how they were impacted by the AHCA or even knows someone who was negatively impacted? I doubt it very much, because all that talk of not keeping you doctor and stuff is a bunch of hooey that is making a mountain out of a mole hill. So you don't like that the government is making you buy some form of health care coverage. Cry me a river, you same people probably already have it, so what is your beef? The people that didn't have it fall into one of two categories, those that couldn't afford it (but now can) and those who just didn't want to carry any. Well for the second group, tough cookies! Not carrying health care insurance is like driving an uninsured automobile and not being able to pay up if you have an accident. Except you are much more likely to get sick or hurt at some point then have an auto accident, and the costs incurred then are much much worse. Not to mention if you don't have insurance and have to go to the ER or hospital, they will still treat you, but the people that DO have insurance will still wind up footing the bill for you anyway.

Oh wait this forum is about tornado damage right? So who has a problem with President Obama surveying the damage and what is your problem with that?

Of course its a publicity stunt. It's ALWAYS a publicity stunt when a President does something like this... and they ALL do.

If they wanted to help, it would be much more efficient to send some a group to assess the damage and then report back to the President and the local government in that area. Then a President could see what aid the federal government might be able to render to the state.

With Presidents, these little site visits after a disaster is always about the photo op/sound bite/news article. It's pure PR.

Good, you finally see it is about tornado damage, loss of life and property damage. Unless you want to help these folks then move along. We don't need your political agenda, these folks need help.

So if you are going to call on people for making this a political issue, you start at the top and work your way down and find the people who made it political, Dave...
