Regarding Ms Greens comment.

Regarding Ms Greens comment. Pres Obama is just as bad as Bush. And hes like Reagen too. A great orator, smlilng at you and all, and behind the scenes, the empire is failing! He's expanded our incursions with his drones, killing not only "terorrists," but women children and other innocents too! And all to the tune of 2 billion dollars a week! Not counting VA costs for many years to come! Its no wonder that people are mad at us and want to attack us! Maybe he should visit the areas he's bombed to view the damage he's wrought! See, Obama has never been to war, along with Bush and Clinton. Iam a Vietnam veteran, and Ive have seen the horrors of war first hand. The stench of the dead piled up for days along the roads to warn others, the destruction from our bombs, and of course, people shooting at you on a daily basis! And I see the damage of these wars at home here when ever I visit the VA Hospital. Young men, and now women too, damaged for life...for what..oil? Our "interests?". Ms Green. Take a trip to a VA Hospital. You may not get in, but you can stand outside and watch them come in. Or, better yet, become a reporter and or a photographer and get imbeded with an Infantry unit. You'll see your tax dollars at work! It might make you feel different towards the empty suit named Obama!

Kind of a half reading of the

does your computer skip when it plays video?
Kind of a half reading of the president's remarks don't ya think?
I think that we need to file this under the "Because one of them was George W Bush... All of them are George W Bush"
I suppose your first draft of this speech would have been, "We Suck, We have always sucked, and no matter how much we may try we will continue to suck"
P.s. That phrase or some variant of it has been popular since.. um... always
and many other countries have the nerve to say that about themselves as well...
Good Grief

You can have American

You can have American exceptionalism without military interventionism. You can also stll be the one indispensable nation without getting all superior about it.

The key is finding the balance between being the largest, most powerful western capitalist nation in the world without being dicks while we're at it. That's what Obama is trying to do.
