    She's got bigger gonads than ANY of our media. She called out Michelle better than anyone yet, not to mention nailing Hussein to the wall.

    Nice find.

    Is it possible to appreciate a speech by someone and not like everything about them?

    As opposed to our own Socialist in the WH? Nah, we prefer the ones overseas who actually have balls and make sense. And the fact they are more competent. In anything.

    Well when that speech is drawn from the person's socialist beliefs, it is a bit ridiculous to rail on the evils of socialism while praising the speech.

    It really demonstrates that many on the right have lost their actual ideological moorings and will praise literally anybody that criticizes Obama, even if that person is even further ideologically from the American right in a political sense.

    So you would prefer one that would not kill terrorists with drones, would advocate much more strongly for unions and against rich folks/"class warfare," feels that Bradley/Chelsea Manning is a hero, is an advocate of ending the US embargo of Cuba, opposes fracking, etc?

    So you must not agree with the political right very often with all of those positions.

    The fan to her left in the crazy wig got some good seats (not a sellout, obviously.)

    ....yet not nearly as 'amazing' as the propensity of our neo-libby counterparts on THFSG to latch on to virtually anything that may discredit the messenger, in order to avoid the actual substance of the message.

    She lambasted the president on a number of counts--e.g.--calling him out as being FOS, in telling Northern Irish kids that the US would have their backs; she also called out her own domestic press court for sicophantic a$$-kissery; and she called Michelle out for mingling with an apparently notorious tax cheat (do you know who she was referring to?).

    Where you see 'the Right' latching on to anything that slanders your beloved presided, I see 'the Left' coiling up in a defensive posture and striking out blindly and instinctively at the source of any such message, seemingly in order to avoid dealing with the substance underlying the critique.

    So let us set aside the ad hominem angle for the moment--let's just say, for the sake of argument, that she's wearing a che guevarra T-shirt underneath her blouse, she has a nazi swastika tatooed on her a$$, and she served prison time for [allegedly] having relations with a 13 year old former student of hers...

    ...now, could you tell us how and why she's so off-base here, substantively?

    I'll concede right off the bat, I do not know whot the tax cheat is to whom she was referring to. Maybe you could shed some light on that (although admittedly, this is probably one of the weaker points--just kinda' piqued my curiosity)...

    ...and how Barry isn't FOS wrt to having northern Ireland's kids' backs...

    ...was she wrong, or rude, in daring to suggest that their press corp. was being sicophantic towards the 'first couple'?....

    ...how the increase in our use of drone missles was addressed by her--was she way off base in that angle? (e.g.--you seem to believe that we only kill terrorists with drones, yet there is some evidence that would suggest that's not an accurate assessment)

    ...and other such issues...

    Give this woman a spot on US TV. She's be the first other than Fox to call our clown of a leader out for what he is. Lest I forget, Clint Eastwood did make the attempt.

    Bet the only place you see this replayed is FOX. And yes, I realize that's because FOX is only interested in sabotaging our President.

    Actually, since Obama apparently has American conservatives now agreeing with the anti-war left, maybe he deserves a second Nobel Peace Prize.

    But what of the anti-war left which he has similarly turned?

    Oh god.... So you disagree? You think we should go to war with Syria? Send arms to enhance combat within the nation? All liberals are war happy now, because Obama wants it, but if it were a republican they would be against it. This is what is wrong with the country people go with it just because their classified as a democrat or republican, they do not even think.

    Oh he is a republican well so am I. I will vote for him just cause. Oh she is a democrat and said that?! Well I believe it because I'm a democrat and that's why. F*ckin morons.

    And yes folks it's going to happen, my younger brother called the other night said he's gotten his papers to be shipped over. He has had them for almost a month, but did not want to tell anyone.

    This machine that our government is building makes me so sick at heart, and I can't take part not even passively. Republicans and democrats, they all need to go... We need to rebuild from the foundation and back up.

    Obama's the only one "sabotaging" anything, including our economy... all by himself.
