Obama Makes Surprise Appearance to Kick Off Gay Games

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Priorities ...   **nononono*

Just another of thousands of tax payer funded campaign stunts by Obama. How much did we pay to fly him from his 8000 sq. ft. multimillion dollar masion in Martha's vineyard and back for this nonsense.
 
He doesn't have time to attend his security briefings. He doesn't have time to do his job, you know, because he is too busy. Too busy doing what nobody knows?
 
But he has plenty of time for fundraising, golf, vaction, and stuff like this.
 
What a slacker loser, and America elected him. (twice)

Yep.  Always time for what's important to him.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I swear, my otherwise intelligent twin brother would vote for him again.  I must have deprived him of nourishment or oxygen while we were in the womb.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Same here Lando, although my brother is not so otherwise intelligent. He is a mega-LIV who has totally bought in to the cultural meme that Republicans are evil and Democrats are good.
 
You cannot argue with him because he doesn't know enough to even understand what you are telling him. And when you dumb it down for him to where he can understand it, then he just gets confused and shuts it out. He doesn't want to think. He doesn't want anything to be complicated. As long as he has his preconceived good/bad mindset, that is enough for him. He is happy with that because it makes everything easy.

You summed up half the electorate.  **sigh**

This is unfortunately the case for a lot of people. :(

My brother has 3 Masters degrees and the dumb ass voted for Obama twice.  You can never talk to him about politics because its too easy to think of killing him.

Sir Winston Churchill once said that the best argument against Democracy could be found in a ten minute conversation with the average voter....

Most people just want somebody else to do their thinking for them, and never really get to the meat of the philosophy behind the opinion.
