    I still don't get excited over people talking about killing.

      but no way is this Obama "just stating a fact."

      "Stating a fact" on this question would be "It's my opinion that I'm not an appeaser.  Others share that opinion.  Some others don't."

      What Obama said, effectively, was "Fuck you and your 'appeasement' horsehit.  I've fucking killed our enemies.  So fuck you.  And, if I haven't already said it, the horse you rode in on."

      Definitely macho posturing.  I happen to like it once in a great while from an otherwise cordial, respectful, cool man.

        ...kind of like my dad glaring at me for a minute after I royally fucked up, then starting with a somber, "Son..."

        We're resigned to our collective fate because we've been conditioned and brainwashed to believe that this is as good as it gets. It's not.

        ..all I know is Obama has totally neutralized the Republicans' "strong on national security" argument by actually eliminating high al Qaeda operatives...something any Republican president could never do due to imcomptence & ignorance.

        If these assholes want to run appeasment smack, how about how they constantly appease racists, their Norquist tax loon,  domestic terrorists & the 1%.

        Maybe next time Obama can mention that.

        When Fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in excess body fat and carrying a misspelled sign.

      people are getting excited about.  Good grief.
