Has anyone noticed that obama is making a lot of blunders lately, both verbal and otherwise. I don't recall him making these obvious mistakes in 2008.
As for that picture......fortunately I ate a several hours ago. We were going to have dessert, but I think I'll pass.The poster formerly known as chuck58 on the old board.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

"when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf"
Something has been bugging me about that comment, over and above the arrogance and narcissism of it. It finally hit me today. Don't know why it took so long.
My war was a long, long time ago. I remember standing, raising my hand and taking the oath and all that, but when I got to Vietnam and was assigned to my unit, it didn't take long for the reality to hit me. Simply, we weren't fighting for God, Mom, Country, Apple Pie or any of that. When things got serious as they did occasionally, we were fighting for each other. We fought to keep each other alive.
I guess no real point to this post. I just had to say that.The poster formerly known as chuck58 on the old board.

If it was almost anyone but Obama, you could make the case that the comment was made as a citizen, "fighting for me (and my family or something) but what we know about Obama, he didn't mean it that way.Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
