These fools need to make up their minds.
A few days ago they were posting the chain e-mail list of 3-4 dozen Obama accomplishments that includes ¨killed bin Laden.¨
5 1/2 years into his presidency and they still use Bush and the race card on a regular basis.
Oh, and in case any libs read this, Obama had as much to do with killing bin Laden as you did.
I find it interesting that, whenever any potentially damning information about Barack Obama comes up, his supporters rarely actually defend him. They just shrug, say it is George W. Bush's fault and then wonder aloud why we don't just accept their answer.

if you want to ignore the world, why not worry only about the US....and Canada, the 51st state, which you appear to be excluding in favor of banana republics....
You really should have taken a Geography class in high school. Canada is part of North America. How did I exclude them? You are looking more and more like a person with a mental age between 8 and 12.

So?

"US President Barack Obama remains popular around the world, with a 57 percent approval rating in 43 countries."

" Obama's rating remains three times higher than his predecessor, George Bush, received. In his last year as president, Bush received a 19-percent approval rating in 20 countries."

Sobbing and shaking, Ismail Abu Musallam leaned against the wall of a hospital Friday, waiting for three of his children to be prepared for burial. They were killed as they slept when an Israeli tank shell hit their home, burying 11-year-old Ahmed, 14-year-old Walaa and 16-year-old Mohammed under debris in their beds.

His personal tragedy is not unique: the U.N. says minors make up one-fifth of the 299 Palestinians killed in 11 days of intense Israeli bombardment of the densely populated Gaza Strip, where half the 1.7 million people are under age 18.

The Israeli military says it's doing its utmost to spare civilians by urging residents to leave areas that are about to be shelled or bombed as Hamas targets. It accuses the Islamic militants of using civilians as human shields by firing rockets from civilian areas.

But even if urged to evacuate, most Gazans have no safe place to go, rights activists say.

"If you are going to attack civilian structures in densely populated areas, of course you are going to see children killed," said Bill Van Esveld, a researcher for New York-based Human Rights Watch.

The US laws cannot be trumped by the UN.

The UN cannot trump US laws

Laws of the US cannot be trumped by UN 'laws'

It is pretty simple what is being stated. Yet somehow you keep claiming not to understand.

And all of the Middle East--not just Israel--does not like him.

Your comprehension of what is being stated is deeply flawed tonight.

Hamas is firing rockets from schools, hospitals, and other highly populated areas. Israel is attempting to destroy these rockets. They warn the Gazans to evacuate so they are not harmed. It is Hamas who is placing the Gazan's in danger.

It's a very sad and complicated situation. The UN divided up the land between the Jews and Palestinians five or six decades ago. The British mandate came to an end soon after and pulling out their armed forces didn't help and may have made things worse.

The conflict goes way back and may just be coming back around full circle.

Very sad situation. Too many children and innocents killed on both sides.
