I like him. Cool

^^^Uhhh... Ok then.

Do you actually have a question to pose to us concerning him, or were you just announcing you like him?

Because if it's the latter then it seems like the debate section of the forum would be a weird place to do it.

I was anticipating that people would ask me why I liked him and it would spiral out of control into a debate.

What, exactly, has he done for education?

I was under the assumption that he hadn't done much of anything for this issue. At all. Feel free to enlighten me.

Yeah I'm still kinda pissed at him for apologizing for America to muslims across the world in during a visit to Egypt near the beginning of his term.

I guess some people might count that as "foreign relations," but in my opinion he's a sellout. He's not a very strongly "pro-America" President, which is unfortunate. Also, as more evidence that he's not much of a "bridge-gapper," he didn't seem to be able to accomplish anything at the recent G20 meetings and during his trip to Asia. In fact, he came off looking worse in some of those countries than he did before.

So I'm a bit curious as to why you say he's good at "bridging gaps in foreign relations"...?

I look at it this way. It doesn't matter WHO is the president. They all fuck up in some way, they all screw us over in some way. It's the "damned if we do, damned if we don't" scenario.

I am by no means anti-america, I support our troops 100% and I have patriotism and all that, but as far as the whole president/government issue goes...I couldn't care less.

I was reading the recently released Embassy Cables on WikiLeaks (the people running the show there are my new heroes, this shit needs to start happening on a massive, global scale), and I like how 'A visit from Obama' was used to try and bribe Slovenia and other countries to do things, along with 'economic incentives' (in Slovenia's case, accept responsibility for a Guantanamo Bay detainee).

Yeah, he's pretty much a fucking tool. There will be no significant 'Change', just a new face on a new game pushing us in a desired direction through manipulation. What a god damn joke.

Also, Iceland seems pretty pleased right now with their decision to let their banks fail. They say they're in a better position than Ireland because of it. I was kind of impressed to hear their leader admit that it would be wrong to make the everyday citizen accept the burden of the banker's failure.

thats pretty much how i am too. i refuse to vote for politicians and thats all that ever run for president. i dont keep up with it enough to make a decision on who to vote for anyway.

It's the same way with U.S. car companies. Whatever happened to capitalism?

IF A COMPANY FAILS AT ITS BUSINESS, LET IT FUCKING FAIL. The resulting broken pieces of these large companies would undoubtedly become startup companies in their own rights and eventually drive the economy to a better place through their expansion and growth.

BUT NOOOOO!! We need to spend $700 Billion bailing them out so they can fail again!... just more slowly this time! Oh, and by the way, they're government-owned now, so Uncle 'Bama can tell us how our cars need to be built and driven and purchased!
