He did get a B in econs , not too shabby , he does have quick reflexes , you should see how he ducked and dodged two shoes , do you really think obama could have done that?
I would have gone with kucinich or gravel seriously for the democrats , and ron paul for the republican side. Why i don't like obama is because he won over much more better qualified leaders just because he is minority race.
I notice that you American liberals like to avoid the facts and focus on character attacks. Thank you for confirming the stereotype. I suppose I should kowtow to you the great white man with the 2000 post count?
Well Azul, in the latest news week issue, on page 5, under perspectives, there is para that says this. I repeat the para here.
"yeah that's right. So what?"
U.S President Bush George W. Bush responding to an interviewer's point that Iraq was not a "major" theater for Al Qaeda (as the president had claimed) until after the US invasion.
Bush basically invaded Iraq for reasons only known to him, I will not speculate although there are accusations that US was in there for the oil. There were reports how US advance troops ignored looting and widespread chaos after the fall of Baghdad and instead their first priority was to secure the facilities involved in the oil production.
And for those who condone Bush and say he did the right thing in "regime change". Well look at Iraq now? Is it any better than before? And look at the world? Have we really solved the issue of Islamic terrorism? And have we found Bin Laden? Answers to all are a NO....
And Obama got elected because he was minority?? I really don't think so.... It is because the other candidates besides Hillary whom I felt had some hope of being up to task to the job were
1) A hardline bible thumping Christian who does not believe in evolution and believe that mankind was created in 7 days and the world is only 7000 years old.
2) A ex war hero who is most likely to carry on Bush's legacy of torture, invasion, assassinations and "regime change" and the infamous detain without trial at Guantanamo. Also due to his age, he has an possibility of passing on while in office..... and who takes over? An vice president who blows a big figure shopping and doesn't even know her geography.... a typical hillbilly and redneck...
With "excellent" candidates like that....I will go for Obama.... minority or not.... and even if he is minority what is wrong?? Why? Is it your belief that only a white can rule USA?
If you really think that being a minority did everything, you really don't understand. John F. Kennedy moved people the same way. In Obama's situation, it goes back to the t.v. movie of the 1970s called "Network" where 1 person yells from the window "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore." and another and another yell until there is the sound of yelling everywhere.
People here are tired of the same, old thing. They want change.
It claimed that the average IQ in America is 98, far lower than I realized. ... That just about describes the American people today.
very obvious there are some stubborn, prejudiced dumb guys here. or maybe they are just racists.
see, bigbird17, this is why in this modern world, racist organisations like KKK stil exists.

Read and weep , i'm not a bush supporter btw, invading and interfering in other countries is an american policy , not presidential. President is simply the public face , the lobby groups have more power. You should look at how much intelligence is out sourced , without wars , they don't have a job. Look at obama corporate campaign contributions.
If the president didn't have power, then a lot of ridiculous things wouldn't have happened the last 8 years. Unfortunately, that's not the case.
By the way, have you ever misspoken when you're tired or emotional? I'd guess not. You must be perfect.
As for the number of states , 57 is pretty far off, off by 1 or 2 might be understandable, it's not really a difficult statistic really so no need to find excuses , he made a mistake, admit it , move on. Bush was geographically challenged as well.
