I think the sarcasm was clear in her post. Typical Lib, changing their story.

Well, all right then.

Not liking your choice of vehicle = wanting you dead.

Got it.

Obama is taking serious heat from gay rights groups here in CA, they are threatening to sit out mid term (2010) elections.


Gay rights demonstrators call on Obama to abolish "don't ask, don't tell"

I am glad Obama has taken a firm stand on "No more Israeli Settlement expansion of any kind"

This is way over due from our State Departments.

I have the feeling they are genuinely serious about this because now the Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister has been making almost identical statements about this over the last couple of days. This is surprising given that our right wing government has a strong pro-Israeli lean. They are clearly falling in line here.

From Keith Olbermann's special comment from May 2008:
Quote:
"Mr. President," he was asked, "you haven't been golfing in recent years. Is that related to Iraq?"

"Yes," began perhaps the most startling reply of this nightmarish blight on our lives as Americans on our history. "It really is. I don't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the Commander in Chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be as — to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal."

Golf, sir? Golf sends the wrong signal to the grieving families of our men and women butchered in Iraq? Do you think these families, Mr. Bush, their lives blighted forever, care about you playing golf? Do you think, sir, they care about you?

(skipping ahead)

When somebody asks you, sir, about your gallant, noble, self-abnegating sacrifice of your golf game so as to soothe the families of the war dead.

This advice, Mr. Bush: Shut the hell up!
Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama hit the golf course after marking his first Memorial Day as commander in chief.

The president's motorcade took him to Fort Belvoir in Virginia. That's where he went for a game of golf more than a week ago.

Obama grabbed his clubs after he participated in Memorial Day observances at Arlington National Cemetery. He laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns and, in brief remarks, saluted the men and women of America's fighting forces as "the best of America."

It was not immediately clear who joined the president for the round of golf.
Press was not allowed, no photos or video exists. Maybe the president didn't want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the Commander in Chief playing golf'... on Memorial Day.

Boy, imagine the neck-vein-popping special comment GWB rushing off from the wreath laying ceremony to play golf would have produced.

Hey Keith. Fore !!

I'm guessing less animated special comments about habeas corpus and military tribunals as well.

Olbermann is saying that giving up golf is a stupid, shallow, pointless gesture (I agree wholeheartedly, and I can't stand Olbermann), so I doubt he'd have a problem with Obama playing golf.

He'd damn well have a problem with Bush playing golf, that's the point. "You sir, the commander-in-chief sir, spend this most solemn of days... with a sand wedge."

Have we heard from Michael Moore yet. He used shots of Bush playing golf as proof he wasn't really sincere about fighting al Qaeda or terrorism.
"Now, watch this drive." Doesn't matter that quote was taken out of context of course.

Speaking of, remember when Michael Moore was so concerned that bills were being passed by Congress without members actually reading them that he'd ride around Washington D.C. in an ice cream truck reading aloud the contents of the bill over a loudspeaker?

I'm guessing he stopped doing that.

Um, that entire snippet from Olbermann you posted states the contrary. The problem he had was not with the golf playing, it was with the ridiculous gesture Bush was making by not playing golf, in some bizarre, twisted show of sympathy. As though not playing golf is going to ease the pain of parents whose children were killed in the war. Please.

It was very important that the American people knew that their President was doing everything possible to end the War.
That he had a personal stake in the duration, that each day the War went on, he was paying a price, too.
