@asknot- in the world of politics, it's the 9th round and the Dems have both eyes swelled shut and gasping for air. One punch would send them down but the Republicans just sit there on their stool arguing with their trainer over what to do next.
I've always said that one of the main problems the Republicans have is that they cannot give the public a vision beyond, "No Obama!" and "Obama is wrong!". They shouldn't get mad at the electorate when they don't follow after them when they give them no reason to.
asknot, i have concluded that most people have become apathetic to the politcal process. it is evidenced by the fiasco which is Obamacare. just like our spending and borrowing problem, the distasteful side of our governents grand programs are delayed or covered up as to shield us from the calamity in which our nations reality resides. the republicans are intimidated by the so-called "tea-party" as they also threaten the democrat party. i have the strong feeling that the democrats would react in much the same way if the roles were reversed. either way....the gravy train and sham that is our governmentt will continue until our reckoning day. so we might as well pick our favorite distraction and ride it out.
Even with all the issues of Obamacare, Americans still are not leaning Republican in regards to the next congressional election.

asknot: been there. done that. too freaking hot in the summer.
And where do people park with they go to the Mercedes Superdome LOL? and what is traffic like on game day because on a regular work day it is crazy.
I was under the impression the the "jazz funerals" you were refering to was a tradition amongst the NO Black Community which I thought you were refering to. If you were not that I made a mistake.
That picture will follow him around forever, no matter what that photographer says. And the picture will carry a negative connotation. It will be similar to the “ I can see Russia from my house” line that Palin NEVER said. Once it is out there, your toast.
Referencing “funerals in New Orleans” is saying that since he is just acting Black, it is OK to act like a jerk.
"The president doesnt carry our values with him when he leaves the country?"
What values are you referring to?
"but it didnt do any good for our standing amongst the other countries."
What countries? All I have heard of this is from the usual whiners. From what I've seen, the international view on the whole thing is that it's no big deal.
asknot, spin it any direction you wish. Maybe you're single, I'm not. And I recognized the "look" his wife was giving him. I could care less where this went on if the locals were partying, and I'm not advocating "miserable" funerals either. However, I do believe you should be respectful. And "taking selfies" wasn't very respectful IMHO. But, then again, I learned many years ago, "Happy wife-happy life."
Whatever you want to think Kendall but it didnt do any good for our standing amongst the other countries.
"But that is not the general culture here in the US."
It wasn't held in the US, so they can behave in a different manner.
But that is not the general culture here in the US. And the world is looking at it and thinking it is disrespectful. Except Michelle. They are saying she was the only one in the pics being solemn and respectful. You have referenced the world view before and its importance.
asknot, it's pretty clear the "little woman" didn't think much of Barry's antics. If that is acceptable behavior in your world, perhaps that shows why this country is so screwed up. There's too many of you folks who engage in this "cult of personality" worship ya 'all have for this moron!
he has more gates than bill and melinda! :-)

Ask, you will need to quit your job since defending Obama is becoming a full time occupation.
