CHS 85--I can't state the reason, as it gets denied. It has to do with a
recent law past in Russia that Obama doesn't agree with. Watch CNN news.
@jsf --"No the poor guy was worn out on the campaign trail, and
said he had been to 57 of the continental US states with two more to go.
"Again, no. He said he had been to 57 of the states and had ONE
more to go -- and that his staff had vetoed trips to Hawaii and Alaska. Watch the video -- it's on snopes."Why do liberals
take Obama's bloopers so personally"Why should I **not**
take it personally when you accuse a sitting president of being drunk on
national TV, and then proceed to make multiple false claims about his
statements? "Obama being the smartest President in
History..."You don't need college transcripts to know that
stupid people don't graduate from Harvard Law School -- and stupid people
very definitely don't get selected to be president of the Harvard Law
Review.You're barking up the wrong tree on this one. You may
not like what he says, but there's no way that reasonable people are going
to believe that he's stupid.
No the poor guy was worn out on the campaign trail, and said he had been to 57
of the continental US states with two more to go. Why do liberals
take Obama's bloopers so personally, why, wasn't it Quail that
misspelled potato, was it not Pallin that said she could see Russia from her
house. Oh wait, it was Tina Feye that said that. Liberals will
bend over backwards to change Obama's statements to mean something than he
actually said. It was Obama that said words matter. The associated press has
already inserted words into their printed copies of the Presidents transcript to
change the meaning regarding the port statement, implying a different meaning.
And what does Bush's bloopers have to do with Obama's bloopers?
Nobody has said that Bush was an eloquent speaker, but the liberal press has
made statements to the effect of Obama being the smartest President in History.
But of course no one will release his college transcripts to prove it. And thus
his gaffs do reflect on his abilities. All hail the Emperor who has no clothes.
@ Utahbluedevil: "had the stock market double if 5 years ( oh wait, he did
do that)"Tell me, when the FED is printing money and increasing
the national debt and buying $80B in bonds per month, thereby dropping bond
rates to near zero, where are the investors supposed to put their money?Every time the FED has hinted at easing or ending this non-stimulus
measure, the market has taken a hit. Now that the stock market is artificially
high, as in 2000 due to overvalued dot coms and in 2007 due to overvalued
mortgage funds that were worth nothing, what do you expect to happen when the
FED stops buying bonds?Obama alone will own the crash that is
@worfOkay, if it was Snowden, then what was the reason? He stands up to Russia and the conservatives say he's weak. He
doesn't stand up to Russia, the conservatives say he's weak. What would you like him to do in this situation?
Snowden wasn't the reason Obama cancelled.
A true leader we have in the White House. Failure upon failure. He has no clue.
But he sure knows how to entertain the Jay Leno crowd. One cool dude.
@jsf --I've got a transcript of Obama's appearance right
here."the gulf ports are on the Atlantic seaboard Carolina,
Georgia and the east side of Florida."He didn't say that
those places were on the Gulf. He was listing ports that need improvement -- FL,
SC, GA, and the gulf. In fact he just visited the Port of Jacksonville a couple
of weeks ago, and spoke about the port projects in Savannah this past May."And he really is sad about the prospect of swimmers and gymnasts
dealing with conditions in Russia during the winter Olympics."Obama never said anything about swimmers or gymnasts being in the winter
Olympics. He was simply using random sports as examples of where Olympic spirit
should be honored."He certainly thought he had been to 57 of the
59 states campaigning the first time around."First, he never
said anything about 59 states.Second, the poor guy was worn out on
the campaign trail, and said he had been to 57 of the continental US states
instead of saying 47. Big whoop.Check the snopes website. It's
got a video of the statement.You want lots of impressive bloopers?
Refer back to Bush. ;-)
Here is the most ironic thing..... Obama has just done what every tea party
leader asked of him to do on the Sunday morning news shows. And then today....
when Obama does or agrees with them.... oh... this is a sign of weakness.Obama could have solved world hunger, cured cancer, ended poverty, had
the stock market double if 5 years ( oh wait, he did do that).... and this same
crowd of "I hate Obama at any cost crowd" still would seek.... no, not
just seek.... but even be willing to make up their own stuff.... just so they
could feel justified in their hate of the man.Now one can wonder
what drives people to such desperate hate. Same could be asked of those on the
other side who did likewise in their hate for Bush. Regardless of what side of
the political spectrum they come from.... to be so desperate to hate someone....
it just makes one wonder what the motivation is.The good news is
that while watching FoxNews this week - I even saw Utah Congressman Chaffetz
support this action taken by Obama. If he can... you would think a few others
might get a clue.
the argument is based on the premise atheism is a religion, (belief their is no
deity) (formal organizations promoting the belief). You are right the lack of,
does not establish, atheism as a state religion, but the act of governments
stepping in and preventing others from acts of religion that differs and is a
limit of religious freedom. There can be no freedom OF religion if there is not
freedom FROM religion, but the argument fails when atheist organize in formal
groups, proselytize their beliefs and attempt to suppress other religions
expressions under the banner freedom from religion.
Give the guy a break, he is a little confused, maybe drank a little to much in
the Green Room, I mean we all know the gulf ports are on the Atlantic seaboard
Carolina, Georgia and the east side of Florida. And he really is sad about the
prospect of swimmers and gymnasts dealing with conditions in Russia during the
winter Olympics. I don't think I really would want the president talking
issues with Putin. Remember the Pallin issue and Russia. Does this President
really know where Russia is? He certainly thought he had been to 57 of the 59
states campaigning the first time around. Apparently he still needs to go back
and get those fifth grade geography lessons and a refresher course on summer
Olympic sports as opposed to winter Olympic sports. The brilliant mind of the
We are witnessing the decline of America in every way a nation can decline, lead
by Barrack Obama! Even Putin knows it as evidenced by his disrespect for Barrack
@patriot --You said: "Barack was too busy anyway appearing on
his favorite show - Late Night With Jay Leno. Leno - Letterman and other
entertainment venues are about the only forum this guy feels comfortable
in."Bush Jr has been on the Tonight Show twice. So what?You said: "This 'non-serious' president is most likely
headed to golf course "From the politics365 website: "Calls to several Presidential libraries reveal that President
Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, was on vacation more — 1,020
days — than any U.S. President since Herbert Hoover and possibly more than
any other President in history." and "Bush took the longest single
vacation — 5 weeks — of any President in 36 years. President Bush
spent 32% of his presidency on vacation.""President Obama
has been on vacation 78 days from 2009 to 2011. At the three year mark into
their first terms, George W. Bush spent 180 days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas
and Ronald Reagan spent 112 vacation days at his ranch in California. " and
"President Obama was on vacation less in his first year in office than the
previous three Republican Presidents."
Barack was too busy anyway appearing on his favorite show - Late Night With Jay
Leno. Leno - Letterman and other entertainment venues are about the only forum
this guy feels comfortable in. Certainly meeting with congressional leaders is
out of the question where he might be asked to 'actually govern'. This
'non-serious' president is most likely headed to golf course next with
a few whistle stops along the way in front of his low IQ masses to remind them
of all the 'phony' scandals that have surfaced over the past several
months. He says it - they believe it. Pretty simple. Really sad.
Good for Obama, especially in light of Putins recent right wing hate regarding
homosexuals.I find it humorous that the usual folks who curse Obama
would side with anyone and I mean anyone who will join them in speaking
ill of the president. Way to lower the bar.
The critical comments above only assure one thing, which is that OTHER critical
comments like "See how Obama always kowtows to Putin?" won't be
used this time around. Whatever he does, the same folks will find something to
complain about. No doubt Mike R., for example, knows that an
international conference on economic issues will be much more productive when
someone from the United States attends, but he just can't help himself when
it comes to ripping Obama.
What is ironic is that Russia gave us valid information about the Boston
Marathon bombers and we didn't treat the Russians with respect in that
situation and do anything about it.This administration wants to have
their cake and eat it also. The Russians are also wondering what is
going on. The KGB of which Putin was a member did tactics such as the NSA is
doing and we were above that type of politics and policy.Now, we
have become more like Russia with socialism for medical care and spying and
going into another country on our own and killing people across borders and
Russians are wondering what happened when they got off the merry-go-round.We live in a world that spun while we were not looking. Freedoms do go
little by little in a democracy and a republic that is supposed to be the land
of the free.Our citizens by default have changed the definition of
freedom to agree with greed, selfishness and responsibility according to the
government. Fahrenheit 451 is here and hard bound books will be next as it is
harder to get rid of valid history from a library offline.
Re: ElcapitanName some of the "freedoms" you (you) have

same as it has for the 40 years I lives before President Obama took office, or
the roughly 30 years before President Bush, or the 20 years before President

Pretty amazing coming from the Man who was going to transform the world. He has
gone from "if you unclench your fist, I'll put out my hand" to
"I'm taking my ball and going home". I know he just got through
doing lunch with Hillary, but I must have missed his lunch with Jimmy Carter,
because this is exactly how Carter handled foreign policy.
He can take personal responsibility perhaps for the economic mess be attending
the summit.He is out of his league with Putin anyway. He has no clue what
lies in wait for those who mess around with the Middle East because it is
Biblical. He and his minions have done great damage to our country and the
freedoms we once enjoyed.
Mr. Putin has put Obama in his place. Putin has shown the contempt that Obama
has for our Contitution, especially for the 1st and 4th Amendments. It would
serve Obama right if he were denied entrance into Russia. Obama is acting like a
spoiled child who will sulk until he gets his way. Why would anyone want Obama
to attend a conference on economics? What economic advice could he possibly
give that would not bankrupt those who listened to him?
Now if we could just get him to cancel Obamacare amid "tensions' and
doubts expressed by the experts in this country we'd be getting somewhere.
Instead, in a calculated move, he put off implementing it for another year until
the mid-term election has occurred. Why isn't it important to clean up our
act in Washing6on, DC, too?
