    Idiocy is blowing up two countries, the second only to settle a personal score, killing tens to hundreds of thousands of people, including our own, instead of seeking “diplomatic solutions”, including taking out singular “problem children” (who are criminals, NOT heads of state!) with a Barrett .50.

    Lester equates these 3 incidents and suggests that the POTUS should be equally cautious before commenting on them. I guess one cannot let flawed logic get in the way of a cheap shot.

    Hey, let’s talk about global warming, too.
    Here is a video of Hatteras Island, NC.
    This is Hwy 12 and how the fire dept has to transport patients to the ambulance by 4WD.

    Yep, that Condoleeza Rice sure put out some bad information. Thousands died in an unnecessary war that crippled our economy.
    Condoleeza shouldn’t be Sec of State.

    Actually, Obama’s got a history of speaking without thinking. Gatesgate and the bit with Trayvon are but the tip of the iceberg.
    For example, you have his bit from the Saddleback Debate in which he said that it would be “above [his] pay grade” to determine when life begins for the sake of declaring when a person’s rights as a human begins.
    Or you have his proposal that the Veterans Administration no longer pay for the long-term medical treatment of service members who have service-related injuries and afflictions. Instead, he wanted to bill their private insurers… not realizing that doing so would have disenfranchised said service members and their families from receiving medical treatment, as even if the service members had private insurance (most service members and their families rely on insurance provided by the government) then the cost of treatment would risk the service member hitting their policy cap, leaving them and their family without any protection against anything else.

    I am not saying that Obama always chooses his words well, or that he never changes his positions. But it is one thing to speak without thinking when the result will do no further damage, and another thing when there is an international incident that can escalate, involve military or CIA action and result in hundreds or thousands of deaths. I expect that those in our military and CIA would agree with me, given that it could be their lives on the line if things excalated. Lester should not be equating them.

    I just hope 1 day the people who voted for GW Bush see the errors of their ways. He wrecked our economy taking a decade to repair & a war in Iraq he had no way of paying for. Now the bill is due with the impending fiscal cliff.

    I always thought the “above my pay grade” comment was pretty clever.

    If they made a mistake I hope no one gets to see the mistake and all America pulls together to overcome another obstacle and remains the great nation it is.

    Actually, it was a cop-out.
    And also rather horrifying if you consider the implications…

    @Darren Blair

    I don’t think it was a cop out at all. If you read the transcripts, you will see that Obama made a very clear distinction — there are three aspects to the question, theological, scientific, and legal. The first two, he said, are above his pay grade — he’s not a theologian, he’s not a scientist. But as for the law, he believes that Roe v. Wade is correct. What’s the problem with that answer? And what is horrifying about it? It’s actually consistent with the law of the land.
