    He wont be around because he'll be out of town making political speeches! Oh but his "team" will be available! Lol! So here we see again the failure of leadership of Barack Obama. With the government in danger of being shut down, the chosen one, the great orator, the Solomon of all disputes will be busy running for reelection! Who knows, maybe he'll even get in a round of golf! Lol!

      What, are you surprised that Obama is off campaigning for re-election?  A politicians #1 job is to be elected.  When was the last time you saw any politician give up an opportunity to get money.  A billion is what is projected he will raise.  Based on that all other comers will have a hard time competing with him.

      POLITICS IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!  Learn it, remember it, live it.

    Am I missing a joke here?  Are all these posts meant to be satire?

    Sorry, but I am a bit confused.

      I guess it is a veiled satire of sorts. LaLo continues to pound on the ouster of Obama while giving no clear choice to replace him.

      I merely try to point out that picking on this one politician is fruitless as is the whole scene inside the beltway is corrupt and needs to have the house (and senate) cleared out before any real change can occur.

        OK, so it's just politics is it?  Just choosing which political leader will make a minor series of adjustments to taxation one way or another?

        Not very exciting really is it?  Maybe it's different in the States.

        In the UK they say different things, but essentially the same stuff goes on no matter who is in power.

        "I guess it is a veiled satire of sorts. LaLo continues to pound on the ouster of Obama while giving no clear choice to replace him."

        How about a bag of hair, its more intelligent and doesn't have to make a speech every five minutes to prove it.

    Ah. So Obama is bad and.. who.. Palin is good?  Ok fair enough, no need for any more then - I understand now.

    Of course I can't actually vote in the US Primaries (is that the right word?) but I can get all worked up about something I expect if need be.

    I know - I'll try a bit myself, nothing to do.. bit bored at the moment.

    Taxes are bad!

    There - that's shocking.

    But we need hospitals, roads, schools.

    Perhaps if we paid a little less tax and had slightly smaller schools - maybe that would work.

    It's difficult really, once you cut out the crap.  Ok sure Palin is wonderful and Obama is a devil.  Or the other way around.

    But at the end of the day they are just politicans, not saints, and the system has to function in more or less the same way.

      I don't mind being flamed or supported - it's when I don't understand the reference I have a problem.

      edit: The obscene Wiki version is well worth a look...

        A Humorist without knowledge of the greatest limerick of all time?

        I am neither flaming nor supporting - Im countering the useless OP with an equally useless thought.

        Here is a totally irrelevant image:

      I preferred the Obama theme.  Typical forum thread - I end up looking stupid because I misunderstood the use of the Nantucket line. And me a 'humorist'.

      Last time I do politics.

    Actually, they are not the same. If these Re-Baggers have their way, you will have a totally different America...
    Well, you could go back to the 30's Depression era, I geuss...
    Or the Dark Middle Ages....

    They want to outlaw women's choice,outlaw gay marriage,change history, end the 14th and 17th amendments, give corporations all the power, no collective bargaining, no minimum wage, no help for poor and elderly, lower taxes for rich and corporations,take money from public schools, and funnell it to private, privitize all services, so the banks make a profit, and only the wealthy can afford anything, start more wars where your kids die--for a foreign country no less, whom they want to make a permanent part of our budget.

    Tyranny of the wealthy, despair and suffering on the poor.
    More laws, more lock-ups, more prisons,less money for dying citizens, more fees, more fines, higher prices.

    More consolidation, free thinking not allowed,more spying,watching you, tapping your phones,undoing all the safe-guards put in place to protect the consumer.....

    Make Christianity the only religion,slander and smear all muslims,mexicans,liberals, progressives.

    You know--typical Right-Wing Crap.
