    What would be the purpose of such a discussion? Obama has proven time and again he is as politically aware as any previous President. He bends with the wind.

    When he was running for senate he swore that he would campaign for a single payer healthcare system. Because it was the only way to ensure everyone had healthcare insurance.

    He is a long, long way from that now.

    i don't think it is possible for anyone to show and prove anything to you.
    certainly not myself. i know that you know that. so stop the game.

    perhaps if you tried? (i tossed you an easy one: "He is the First Black President.")

    how about "obama family values"? there's more to the man than just the job, eh?

    (oh drat!! better log off before i get accused of stalking!)

    After you get through your Rush Limbaugh impersonations you will have something to say

    Putney, we have all tried and failed in your eyes. And since we have failed, why concern yourself with us?

    Move on.

    "there is no "try", there is only "do"."

    trudat; i ain't putney, but i can sure feel where he is comin from. so i'll venture this response anyway:
    you/we ain't failed until we/you quit - have you quit?

    i/we continue to concern my/ourselves with you because you are us/me/we!

    most times i want to do just that ... until i pass a mirror and realize that i can't "move on" because i'm/you're/we're always right here beside me/us!

    we gots ta get up and do something; the babies are crying and dying!

    what are you talking about brother

    you could not do a cut and paste to substatiate that, but if want to act as though you fear an honest debate maybe you should be the one to move on, why act like this is a question, like does so and so able to prove their wife is not cheating, what's with the romantic hostlility?
