    Improve his bracket picks! IF he were smart...



    Why is the "No Blood for Oil!" crowd so silent on Obama?



    Lybia didn't attack us... Heck, every coalition country that has shot at Lybia, Lybia did not attack!...



    Were these not the parameter Bush didn't follow? \



    Where are the vocal anti-force crowd when you need them?!



    Their silence rings hypocritical of their so called "Self-Righteous, Holier than Thou" stance!



    Good to know!

    I betcha he has the iFart app, imagine!

    Last 3 Presidents:

    Clinton shagging an intern doggie style in the Oval Office

    W - spent most of his day playin golf and fishing

    Obama laughing hysterically to ifart apps



    good to know the world is in such capable hands lol

    at least they are human, hmm



    There is so much material here for a British style satirical comedy show, why can't the networks make one. Spitting Image made The Gipper a laughing stock, imagine what they would do to the last 4 Presidents and couple of hundred celebs and TV people.

    You would think the most powerful individual in the civilized world could afford the 3G model.

    Memo to the President:



    You can buy an iPad with wireless 3G access. No need to tether.

    To be fair to Obama, he probably wouldn't be allowed to use a regular 3G iPad. His blackberry is a special version that is more secure.

    Ouch. Well in case there's any confusion...



    Urkel's car:







    Obama's car:









    That said, it'd be interesting know whether Obama's iPad is off-the-shelf, or if it's something very purpose-built for the POTUS.

    Neither did Iraq.



    And we're supposed to care about the opinion of someone who doesn't even know how to spell Libya, a country that's been all over the news for the past few weeks?

    Full data encryption? If your the president, thats slightly important...Although, its known he does not use it for government work anyways, that probably needs even higher encryption.

    Hypocrisy is when right wingers insist that the US is weak for not storming Libya while also insisting that Obama is out of line for acting to stop a mass murder.



    But the difference between Bush's Iraq invasion is that it was knowingly based on bad information, aimed primarily at gaining access to the nation's oil, left a destabilized bunch of warlords and terrorists in control, and cost America $4 trillion usd, with no support from the rest of the world.



    In Libya, Obama had the UN run the show, acted only to stop mass murder by the Libyan military without illegally invading and assassinating a leader who the right wing of America had long plied with weapons and favors and overlooked as a mass murderer of his people, didn't attempt to seize the nations oil, didn't leave the country in chaotic shambles as priceless historical treasures were destroyed and hundreds of thousands of innocent people ( and thousands of ameican forces) were needlessly killed in a massive clusterfuck of bad planning and incompetence that made the world much more dangerous and inflamed Arab hate for the US as it created the largest US deficit ever.



    So no, not really the same thing.

    Even I know that it should be President of the United States, not president of the United States.

    And the proper honorific is not "Obama" but President Obama. Jeez, I hated President Bush's insides, but I still called him President. It's called respect for the office.

    As opposed to the left that can seem to rationalize EVERYTHING that BO does, even if it is the EXACT same thing that they derided GWB for.
