The bloke is still alive. Surely this is poor taste -like he was invited to the funeral and no one told him it was cancelled

The Truth , st.louis, United States, 30/6/2013 21:37 And you're just another uneducated low information voter (unfortunately you can vote). Obama can't hold a candle to George Bush as so many are beginning to realise.....Obama will go down in history as the WORST President in ANY capacity this Republic has ever known. You're just too ignorant to realise it.....and we're all going to be paying for it in the years to come.- cayman214 , anywhere USA, 30/6/2013 22:32.......... Bush is the worst president ever right wing fool! No one will ever take that spot from him!

]He would have been released a lot earlier if he has agreed to renounce violence. But he refused. Some role model, eh ?

The trouble with a president who has absolutely no sense of who HE really is  - he is always trying to wrap himself up in being someone else - be it Lincoln, Reagan, Washington or Mandella.

He could be Madella and be imprisoned 18 years or even more if our Congress had any balls.
