    True or not legend has it that Emperor Nero fiddled {or harped} while Rome burned.

    Obama is perhaps more clever!

    Before the bodies of four dead Americans murdered by Islamic Terrorists in Libya were cold Obama was off to a fund raiser. Now while Putin seizes the Crimean Peninsula Obama is off to a fund raiser. Obama uses Air Force One much like a child does his first tricycle! But then Hillary compiled over a million miles at taxpayer expense flying around doing nothing! Sorry she did reset Russia and they seized the Crimean Peninsula!

    Yes, because President Obama is an incestuous, pedophile who burns Christians alive on stakes while merrily partying with his friends in the afterglow of their corpses.

    The disrespect for the current President here continues to sadden me. Disagree with him, yes we should, but let's be respectful.

    And just why should we???
    Respect the office, yes, but the man(?) has to EARN respect - it's not a given.
    Fact is he's done far more to EARN disrespect, so far while in office.

    Why wasn't Jesus more respectful of Herod than to call him a fox?

    Well, He wasn't respectful towards the Jews in general, He taught them riddles, and He definitely had nothing good to say about their leaders.

    And I presume we should follow Jesus' example.

    My point being it was an evil and adulterous generation, and that included Herod.

    How in the world can you respect someone who
    You left out one of the worst crimes this man commits. He supports the slaughter of the unborn and just born.

    The Republican members of Congress have fiddled while America and the rest of the world face an economic crisis.

    As weak as they are, congressional republicans have been all that have stood between Obama and his plans for the total economic destruction of our country.

    2014 mid-term elections, we have the opportunity to do to the far left Obama administration as we did to the far left Billary administration mid-term elections 1994. Yank them to the center.

    Obama will never be yanked. He is a hard line leftist and a bitter racist to boot. But he is a good actor. i think he should try Hollywood with all the other oddities. Hillary was pretty good with the Benghazi thing but it may not be enough!

    It is the democrat senate under dingy harry who is piddling! But at least there were 7 democrat senators with sufficient integrity to vote against the person who got leniency for that cop killer.
