    I wouldn't. Nothing is accomplished by calling the president names.

    You may be correct .... but, we all have the right to speak our thoughts. I did volunteer to fight in Nam to defend that right, as well as your right to disagree. However, as a believer, I removed that thought. Thanks for reminding me of being better than him.

    Thanks (again) for your service, but it is not about the 'right' but about the wisdom and usefulness.

    Appreciate your comment about being better than that kind of thing.

    Hey, that's why I fellowship here. I do need to hear back from the soundingboard around me. Some think I am unteachable, but that is merely a pompous opinion on their behalf. I respond to those I respect. We may not agree, but I still think yu exhibit wisdom. Just don't get a fathead. Whistling

    Obama is not only out of touch with the country, he's out of touch with reality.

    He thinks he's doing great.

    "If there were a prototype for a draft dodger, it would be Zimmer {The Dude}. He made every attempt to alleviate the draft, but his efforts still garnered a 14-month stay in the Army. His release was based on medical reasons."

    The greatest threat to any country is it's government. The founders of this country understood that and created a document to protect us from our government. The Constitution.

    The greatest threat to the American government is the constitution, and the American government treats it as such.

    The greatest threat to America then are Americans who fail to protect and defend the constitution every time the government tells us it needs authority the constitution doesn't grant it to keep us safe.

    Looks at thread title:
    Is Obama Out of Touch with America?

    Looks at thread's opening post:
    Who is the greater threat to America?

    So, what is your thread topic?

    He can't seem to remember if he was drafted (and tried his best to get out of it...finally doing so with a medical discharge) or volunteered for Vietnam, and you expect him to get a thread title to match the body?

    It's soooo confusing. I don't know how to answer because the title says one thing and then we shift to something else. Maybe the OP can get his editor online. He seems to be able to get his writing ready for public consumption.[​IMG]

    The President lives in a world of fund raisers, golf courses, vacations, and close friends.

    If you're that dense, don't blame me! Others have answered without the assistance of my editor or any other editor! Speechless

    If you consider what (I think), is his objective, he's having very good success; and knows EXACTLY what he's doing.
