Not possible, especially with the recent decision of the Supreme Clowns. (And OBama knows that)

I've said it before, but we've done the very best thing possible to Osama (if he is still alive). We've forced him into a rathole and made him watch as we systematically destroy his glorious movement. Capturing him or killing him at this point would only energize his "base" and create a larger than life martyr figure.

Obama has no power to fight any enemies of America, he is a wuss, geek ultra liberal.

Or....we put his head on a pike so as all his buddies know what happens when you piss us off, not that they don't already know that. Democrats are dangerous.

Makes sense. Bring OBL here and let him be interviewed by a gushing Chris Matthews. Chrissy could get another thrill up his leg.

See my comments above. We all know he (OBama) has no interest in fighting, and I truly wouldn't be surprised if during an OBama Presidency a "deal" is struck to stage an OSama "capture".

It's a win-win for both sides of the enemy. OBama gets a feather in his cap for doing what the nasty wasty Republicans "couldn't" do, and OSama sits in relative comfort and creates the media circus of the century.

[i]I can just hear the slobbering liberal interviews:[/i]

Well regardless of the details, we all have to respect Osama for being a man of conviction... and standing up for the principles that he believes in.

That's what the Republican party is lacking... and has turned it into a Culture of Corruption.

Anyway, back to Osama... Who are we to judge? Didn't the bible or some other famous book say, "Judge not... lest ye be judged"?

That's another thing... Those hypocritical Republics are so judgmental and quick to stereotype. Yup... all of them.

Hard for Obama to talk tough when , the tough work has already been done by our Troops and the Bush adminstration. Obama probably would have to go out for a smoke, and bite his nails some and then go for a latte.

Osama can not become a “marter” if you have dip him in pigs blood! SO, you capture him, roll him in pigs blood and then do as you wish to the piece of human scum! A couple of days ago the question was asked, “What would you if you caught Osama alive?” The resopnse was direct and to the point. Strap him to the biggest nuke we have. Dip Osama and the nuke if a pit of pigs blood and guts and then drop the mess in the middle of Mecca”.

From Obama’s book Audacity of Hope.

“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

That is a paraphrase, not a quote.

There are more damning quotes in his books and on his tapes.

Hitler was a “martyr” too. He died by his own hand.

I guess we “didn’t really win” because he “cheated” us out of a moment of triumph. < /half sarc >

Quote from Barack Obama’s book, Dreams Of My Father:
“The person who made me proudest of all, though, was [half brother] Roy .. He converted to Islam.”

From ‘Dreams of my Father’, “In Indonesia, I had spent two years at a Muslim school”
“I studied the Koran..”

From ‘Audacity of Hope: “Lolo (Obama’s step father) followed a brand of Islam ....”I looked to Lolo for guidance”.

From ‘The Audacity Of Hope, “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

From The Audacity Of Hope, “We are no longer just a Christian nation,” “We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

Should not be in quotes. The statement, as you present it, is incorrect and paraphrases the real quote.

Shows you how a misquote can spread throughout the Net.

The correct quote is:

In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

At the battle of Lepanto, the soldiers of the Christian alliance beheaded the Muslim commander, Ali Pasha, and put his head on a pike. The display crushed the morale of the Muslim warriors.

When David cut off Goliaths head with his own sword it did much for the morale of the Philistines also.

Democrats are cowards of the worst kind.

Is he quoting somebody in a story or narrative, or is he expressing his own thoughts?

How much text appears between an entry’s first and second quote (the text that presumably fits into the elipses “...”)?

I’m a little suspicious as to how these are presented.

There is plenty of dirt on him. I simply do not wish to promote misinformation or to engage in deceptive BS. One loses credibility when exposed for that and it is not neccessary anyway. Cute, but it can backfire.

You don’t see the difference between:

“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

and

“I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

That’s fine.

I owe you an apology from last week on the Obama "Stand with them" vs "Stand with Muslims"

You were correct. Even after you corrected me I didn't see the differrce till later. (...multitasking at work.)

Same meaning, but my reference was not the proper quoted text.
