It is all over CNN that Bush is giving out mosiquito nets for beds to the Africans. Ten to 1 that tomorrow they have those nets down at the nearest watering hole using it as a handheld seine.

The most hilarious thing in all of this was Bush threatening to NOT leave the country if Congress didn't pass his spy bill. I wonder if he would stay away permanently in exchange for something?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

What about his predecessor, the First Black President?

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama

He was only Black in the USA--didn't like Africa because there were too many Blacks there...

Ahhh, does that also explain why Bush neglected the blacks of New Orleans?

The difference is that the Blacks in NO attacked the President unmercifully for a natural disaster over which he had no control, and the Blacks in Africa love the President for all he has done for them.

Ah yes now I understand! So making them live in hell is just "sweet revenge" right? Let'em breath the formaldehyde or get the fk out, that's the way to show them.

The President didn't "make" anyone do anything! The absence of any local or state assistance required the federal government to provide temporary, emergency shelter for those too lazy and/or too stupid to take care of themselves. Poor babies... I'm sure you would have done much better!
