hmmmm...i'm remembering why i left this board alone for a while...what an echo chamber. a couple points:
1. i have never apologized for the many mistakes of our former pres.
2. in arab cultures, men hold hands.
3. protocol instructs that the pres should hold a saudi dignitary's hand if offered. to do otherwise is insulting
4. bowing to anyone when you are the president of the United States is a major breach of protocol
5. if Obama had held the King's hand, i'd be down with that, but he bowed. it was obsequious and ridiculous. he should admit the mistake and move forward already.
6. the point, if you haven't come across it already in this bubble world called LSD is that Obama is being ill-served by his entourage. an iPod for the Queen? a secretary of the treasury who looks like he has yet to hit puberty (and talks like it) and forgets to pay his taxes? Leno? Gibbs? come on! he needs to fire, or more precisely Rahm needs to fire a lot of people because this smacks of amateur night.

It's pretty gut-wrenching, especially as a vet to see my commander in chief and president bowing to some two bit, a-hole monarch. We poked fun at every Bushy misstep. Where is the media onslaught now?

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Is this "change"

1. emolument is not a "technicality", it's actually outlined expressly in the Cx.
2.Geithner knew he owed back taxes and chose not to pay them.
3.Daschle was absolutely booted out.
4.Most Americans (and most of the Senate) thinks the stimulus package as presented by Congress to the Senate blows.
5.Richardson.  A lot like Cheney and Bush. Nothing proved yet right? Just had to withdraw....

A TOUCH OF OBJECTIVITY PLEASE!!!! This is not the change we wanted.

General Off-Topic Board / Is this "change"
« on: February 03, 2009, 10:06:25 PM »
Richardson, Geithner, Daschle (how does the one in charge of the IRS get in while the other is out? and Geithner knew he owed money for two years and didn't pay), Killefer, Hillary (emolument issue....and this from a constitutional scholar http://volokh.com/posts/1227548910.shtml) and this bill where only 12 cents of every dollar go to actual stimulus http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123326587231330357.html . I can feel the change! How can objective liberals, genuinely hoping for a fresh slate, rationalize this away? Truly breathtaking!

General Off-Topic Board / Re: 70% of African Americans voted yes to Prop 8

OP is really interested in the voting prejudices of minority groups. How'd the whole latinos won't vote for Obama thing work out for you?
dude...so much wrong with two sentences.  I'll pick the most obvious deficiency.  The fact that my observation/prediction about hispanics was incorrect (and it was) has zero bearing on what black people actually told pollsters after voting yes to prop 8.

Regardless, PJC, that number is very interesting.

it is, and yet in classic liberal knee-jerk fashion the reaction from the left is "HOW.....DARE....YOU....sir?" just pointing out a very interesting demographic rift in the liberal bloc. it is also interesting how if you voted yes to prop 8 as a white dude, you are obviously a mouth-breathing hayseed, but if you voted yes to prop 8 as a black person this is just further proof of your oppression. a mite paternalistic no?

it "interestinhg" because you like sowing racial/ethnic discord.

by your reasoning there are no gay black people.
