The president doesn't collect and verify intelligence. That was Valerie Plame's job.
Valerie Plame said there were WMDs in Iraq before Robert Novak outed her. That is what the president knew. You can't escape that fact.

Perhaps you are ignorant of what the intelligence capabilites were when Bush took office. I'll help educate you. Search "Bill Clinton CIA human rights purge" to learn how Bill Clinton gutted the CIA and there wasn't any capability when Bush took office... except for people like Valerie Plame who was an undercover CIA operative specializing in weapons of mass destruction, and the Director of the Joint Task Force on Iraq for Bush43.

Plame was unmasked in July 2003 by columnist Robert D. Novak.

Too bad she didn't tell Shrub to go blow his fooking brains out - maybe Shrub would have done so...

AND Fart breath... the original topix was What the 2012 election taught us. Okay... it taught me that you can't teach an old dog new tricks. You can't change a tigers stripes and white people are racist to the core. I must admit that the Election really was just a reminder of this fact. The O.J. Simpson innocence verdict re-opened my eyes to their racism and self hatred. That was when I was also reminded and my children saw it "Live" too, that we the people of color in this country are engaged in a war with racists in this country still. Maybe we ALL do need to arm ourselves. All people of color serving in the U.S. army need to be reminded of the words of Mohammed Ali when he beat the draft by refusing to go fight for a country who posed more of a threat to us than the Vietnamese. Same shit...different day! I love my Muslim brothers and sisters and if there was an invasion here... guess who I'd shoot at. Roflmao
If I'm so racist (yes, I am white), then why would I vote for any number of African-American people, or Cuban?
At this point, with the knowledge I have to date, I would vote for:
Ben Carson, Condoleeza Rice, Herman Cain (all of whom are more "pure" African-American than Obama) and Marco Rubio? There are others I can't think of at the moment, but their color has absolutely nothing to do with why I would vote for them.
I don't care if a politician is purple, if I agree with their vision for our country, I will vote for them and campaign for them, as I have every other candidate with whom I agree politically.
I find it is usually the one who cries "racism" who is the racist. That seems to be the case here with your racist remarks.

Virtually 100 percent of the black population voted for Obama. I wonder why. That is such an improbably occurrence, there has to be some reason.
... unless you feel any understanding of who the American people are is of no value.
So, is Obama white, or black?
He is a bit of both or in the correct verbiage he is termed as Mulatto

Defined as:

1
: the first-generation offspring of a black person and a white person
2
: a person of mixed white and black ancestry

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/mul...

Still begs the question of why do you care?

You obviously aren't going to be satisfied with any answer people give you because you have your mind set on some fictional conspiracy that it's impossible for a large group of people to vote for President Obama, simply because you don't like him.

Many people obviously liked him over Romney so President Obama was elected again. I'm sorry if that bothers you, but that's how the Presidential race goes, there has to be a winner and there has to be a loser.

It's perplexing. Obama is very obviously a mulatto, yet he gets virtually 100 percent of the black vote. Given naturally occurring ideological differences, what motivates a group defined by race to unanimously support an individual?
Could it be because they believe he is black?

So, I ask the question, expecting the subjective analysis for the response.
In my opinion, I believe it is a racist motivation. I also notice that nobody here wants to commit to either black or white, but all information the people are expsed to ignore the fact that Obama is mulatto, and call him "black".
I don't have to opportunity to directly question and challenge the givers of the indoctrinated party line, so I wanted to solicit a response from those being indoctrinated, and challenge from that perspective.

My grandmother was mulatto. She was neither proud of ashamed. Toher, she was who she was, and you liked it or not. There isn't a single person here who wants to say Obama is a mulatto, though it's the obvious truth. Perhaps they voted for the black candidate, and don't want to admit they voted for a white candidate.

Try to get inbreeding out of that.
You see, I am the result of that "melting pot" every brags about being part of.

Now, out of curiosity, is Obama white or black?
Out of curiosity, are you half full of shit or totally full of shit?
