But were you aware (a lot of people aren't,) that JFK botched his German. What he actually said sounded to the German audience something like "I am a jelly doughnut."
Who said he botched it?...Maybe he wanted the Germans to know about his jelly-filled goodness...

Just keep the blinders on, Mikeyy. It's dumbass responses like this that lead us to the whole "Messiah" conclusion. You know very well what happened, yet you'll act dumb in order to be able to defend the President's error.

Isn't it interesting that you Obama-lovers refuse to acknowlege an obvious screw up by the President. The Polish people are dealing with thier own problems right now, but we have ours right here. This was a bad decision by the President. Anyone with any integrity whatsoever could see that. But you're so blinded by your partisanship that you'll defend a action that was so clearly wrong for no other reason than because those of us on the right called it out.

C'mon, Mikeyy, he's a LEADER, not just a guy on the street. For you or me, making a phone call is absolutely OK, but for the President, it's FAR from OK. Anyone with the sense God gave a gopher would know that he should have made some kind of public show of this nation's support - that's what the President should have done. If he wanted to golf afterwards - FINE!!!, but first, he should have done the right thing and taken the time to publically express as the head of this nation to one of our allies and friends an expression of our national condolences. It's not OK for him to simply ignore the situation. I just don't understand how you can defend this. It's so utterly and clearly wrong that I'm blown away that you're defending what he did. When do you plan on taking off teh rose-colored glasses and actually start looking at his actions honestly and objectively???

Sorry but I think this is a thread created to attack Obama. The Polish people are not upset with Obama. But you are. What does that tell you?

Have you been to Poland in the last few days to know that they aren't upset?

They probably aren't. They are probably over joyed that he didn't show up and they didn't have to "receive" him.

Ask some of the others. They seem to know a lot about Poland.

It is a thread created to criticize Obama. Adults generally recognize the difference.
