    My main problem with this blasfemous, evil outcry of an expectation being lodged against this president and his administration is WHY? I'm well aware of the hate and double-standardness people have angrily shown towards PRES OBAMA! Do you not believe the special forces, the navy seals, the CIA, Panetta, Gates, Biden, Hillary Clinton, and all of those people who were involved in this operation? It came out on the internet, but did you freaks kick and scream to Bush for HUSSEIN'S pictures after he was killed?

    Some people will stoop to any levels to berate, degrade, demote, denigrate, dismiss, discount, disparage and deflate any and every iota of a thing this PRESIDENT has done or will do! He hasn't said or done one thing that some folk will ever appreciate; and the problem is they have their hats twisted that way! They don't plan on giving him ANY support on ANYTHING ever! POLITICALLY nor PERSONALLY! They say it's not racism, but it's just as sick! It's the sickest mindset I've seen since 'THE FREEDOM RIDERS'!

    Liz, think of this, how does Hillary 'know'. Is it because she saw it on a TV? Did she see a photo? Talk to someone that was there? It is all based on trust. Someone tells someone, they tell her, she tells us. Same could be said for Barry, he does not relay know, he just trust the person that told him. Well, or may be he is just telling us, we do not really know all we can do is trust.

    It is interesting that so many Liberals that said we should trust the president on his birth certificate are now calling for proof of OBL's death. Does that make those Liberals racist? All I can hope is that maybe some of them will have a little understanding about those that were on the other side just one week ago.

    I do not trust Barry however I do think OBL is dead. I have no proof, it just sounds right. However I do think that the photos should be released. I think we all would have wanted to see the images of Hitler, Mussolini. Did that make the people back then racist?

    Maybe so many degrade this president because he is not worth their respect. By the way, was not Barry suppose to be open and transparent president? Yet another reason to not respect the man.

    Jay, you've shown me that on every step OBAMA takes you and your anti-OBAMA cohorts are right in his wind, stepping into his every footprint, picking apart each and every one of his ideas, suggestions, decisions, every, reason, cause or resolution, every word of his speeches, every working trip, his wife, their clothes, their dates, their children, even the family time and trips Pres Obama has participated or been involved in; that you don't like the man, OK? It's hard for you respect a man you don't like!!

    BTW, Hillary was not the only one I named. I mentioned all of the people in the room! What about the navy seals and the special forces? They work for the government. You know government workers?!? Whether it's run by Dems or Reps! You want to see the pictues because you don' trust Barry? Do you think they all lied, along with LEON PANETTA and the CIA? I guess you don't trust Bush's people after all! No WMB's, but you trusted the Bush announcement on HUSSEIN though, huh? Did you ask for pictures, a DNA test?

    May 4, 2011 at 11:07 pm |
  6. Liz Carter in Georgia

    What liberals are you saying want to see the morbid pictures? I just saw a poll that said 90% of Americans agreed with OBAMA's decision not to show them! I guess we're not that freaky! So I guess you're in the 10% that's needing to see them; I'll venture to say that the breakdown of that 10% is probably 7% Cons and 3% Libs. LOL! BTW, people of the macabre don't come from any one race! If you like death and the devil you're in! Frankly, I don't think too many folk cared to see Hitler, Mussolini, nor Hussein!

    Liz, I said that I think that OBL is dead. I just want to see the pictures. I could not find the poll you speak of, please give us a link. Tonight on CNN, Alan Dershowitz, said that it was the right thing to release the photos. I can not think of anyone more Liberal than Mr. Dershowitz.

    OK, let me understand this you did not believe President Bush about the WMD and you wanted proof. But you attack anyone that ask Barry for proof. Strange that after your experience with WMDs you would trust your government so much.

    May 5, 2011 at 1:19 am |
  8. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Jay, where have you seen me post a blog saying I wanted proof of the fact that WMDs were in IRAQ? If you find one I will gladly apologize. When BUSH went to IRAQ, I believed there were WMDs, thanks to the run up by COLIN POWELL who they had to stand up in front of the world at the UN, to put a stamp on what they had already told us! I never even thought of asking for proof. I certainly did trust my government when it came to keeping us safe. They let me down! Hussein? Yes! Weapons? No! Bin Laden? No! IRAQ??

    May 5, 2011 at 7:36 pm |
  9. Liz Carter in Georgia

    This is a more transparent government now Jay! The previous administration was not. We literally took their word on most issues without question! My biggest question back then was this: Once they found out there were no WMDs, and the claim was since they were found to have gone there wrong, they decided to get Saddam; they said they got him, although there were many who looked like him, we took their word didn't we? Did we did ask for DNA and pictures? So, why didn't they focus then on Afghanistan for OBL?

      Liz, you asked "Did we did ask for DNA and pictures of Saddam Hussein?"
      Yes we did, I know you do not like facts but take a look at this USA story back in Dec, 2003, Captive Saddam Hussein is inspected down to the DNA. Here is the link.

      You also say that we did not ask for pictures. Well did you forget, the man stood trial in Oct. 2005, he was there before the world, broadcast every day. Thumping his chest, arguing with the judge, fired and rehired lawyers. It was fascinating TV, reporters from all over the world covered it.

      I really think that people should not trust your opinion. You always get your facts wrong, spread misinformation. My goodness, no wonder you support Barry, you do not know what is going on.

      May 5, 2011 at 8:49 pm |
  10. Liz Carter in Georgia

    There were pictures that came out, but AMERICANS black, white, nor other were kicking and screaming for them for proof! That was PRESIDENT BUSH! We'd already taken his word! Posters were out immediately claiming BUSH got Hussein! People screaming USA! USA! USA! I don't remember a time back then when anybody dared to say BUSH needed to share his thunder with CLINTON, because some of them were his people, they worked from his intel. Oh, I guess that was all BUSH! CLINTONS intel was REALLY for finding OBL!

    May 5, 2011 at 8:21 pm |
  11. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Alan Dershowitz has the right to his opinion. I feel exactly like many other liberals, and even some conservatives on the release of the Bin Laden death pictures; they don't need to be released to satisfy some folks morbid appetites or to prove that this PRESIDENT of THE UNITED STATES is telling the truth! Barack Obama is now, so far the president. He does not deserve the continous harrasment, judgement, scoffing, heckling, and denouncing that you people have put him through on a daily basis! It's wrong!

    May 5, 2011 at 8:43 pm |
  12. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Jay, I believe the real reason you don't TRUST nor like Barack Obama is because you know deep down in your heart that this man's proving and has proved himself to be one of the most extraordinarily intelligent, thoughtful, decisive, steady, calm, courteous, honorable, formal yet casual, well-read, well-spoken, well-dressed, handsome black men you MAY have ever seen in your life and you feel threatened. You work so hard to dismantle all about him you can! VP BIDEN even called him as a 'storybook' character.

    May 5, 2011 at 10:04 pm |
    • Jay in NC

      You say, "well-dressed, handsome black men you may have ever seen in your life" Oh my god, you are in love with this fool. The way you describe him is as if no other black man could be those things. you are insulting all the other black men we have known. You feel so inferior that you have to constantly inform people that you think he is intelligent. You know in my state we have a motto. "Esse quam videri" "To be, rather than to seem to be." Barry and his supporters should spend more time being then seeming.

      You are blinded by your hate. By the way i noticed that you did not correct your previous post about us not asking for Saddam Hussein's DNA. You have lied so many times, why should anyone trust you.

    BTW, you may need to watch something other than FOX and CNN. I do watch those news stations for comparisons of the coverage of the issues. However, MSNBC's Lawrence O'donnell, Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz are 3 who will get to the truth of matters, and give it to you straight with 'proof'! Yes, they are liberals but they make sure, most of the time, to give FOX's conservative 'FAIR & BALANCED views, and CNN's twisted and spinned views. Try it you may be surprised at what you hear and see! More accurate polls!

  14. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Jay, I know the man was shown on tv in court, cutting up and acting crazy. He even tried to act like he was sick for a while. I'm sure they must have gotten something done to prove he was who they thought he was. My point was we as a supportive nation of the president at that time were not out, all but demonstrating for any of it! We watched it on tv because they showed it on tv. We wouldn't have died or gone mad had they decided not to! BUSH didn't ID him because we didn't trust him! We believed him!

    May 5, 2011 at 10:51 pm |
    • Jay in NC

      Your arguing with your self now. You asked "Did we did ask for DNA and pictures?" and the answer is yes, spin it any way now that you want but you said we did not demand proof. You are wrong. As always. Lately your post have been crazier and crazier I just love seeing Barry's number one fan fall unravel.

  15. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Jay, there you go playing devils advocate again trying to spin my words into something that could be hurtful to others. You have been one of the most insulting, sarcastic know-it-all 'plagiarist', as some one else told you, on this blog! You are just like the media who pounce on a one-liner, edit it, and blow it up into a controversial firestorm for people like you to 'ride'. You cherry-pick excerpts of everbodys comments, in order to justify the frustrated hate and disdain you want to spew back at them.

    May 6, 2011 at 6:08 am |
  16. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Jay, I am in love with my husband, OK? He and I both have great admiration, respect, and love for Barack Obama as a human being and as the PRESIDENT. We are going to give him the same chance, respect and trust as we were obliged to give all of the other previous PRESIDENTS we've lived up under, until we TRULY find out he was unworthy. You and no one else will shout me down on that! I think for myself and I'm sure most people on this blog are thinking for themselves. People! Don't trust me! TRUST GOD!

    May 6, 2011 at 6:37 am |
  17. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Jay, I did address or respond to my OWN question about the DNA that you quoted...I said we as a nation didn't get out kicking and screaming for it as proof that BUSH was telling the truth. I also included in the comment 'pictures'. You convieniently left that out I see; Both of those things may have transpired, but 'we the people' did not rush BUSH to have these things done, as if we didn't believe him, even after they'd already 'lied' about weapons of mass destruction! BTW, you are blinded by supremacy!

    May 6, 2011 at 6:58 am |
  18. Liz Carter in Georgia

    BTW, when you try to quote me for setting up grounds for your hideously, hurtful points, I'd appreciate if you quote me in full. Read my post, you'll find that I listed at least 12 qualities I've come to see and believe about the PRESIDENT! I listed them in the context of a whole paragraph that said he 'has proved himself to be ONE of the most....'! Oh yes, we have many like him! My husband is one of them. My brothers are 3 of them. My father was 1 of them! We have many black men who are from 'storybooks'!

    May 6, 2011 at 7:36 am |
    • Jay in NC

      Yes you are living in a story book no reality. We did not get out kicking and screaming for it as proof because it was there. Bush gave the proof to us. Barry on the other hand has been secretive, unwilling to give details, DNA evidence, anything. He is the most secretive president ever.

  19. Liz Carter in Georgia

    You said I felt so 'inferior' that I had to constantly inform people that I thought he was intelligent. Well Jay, that's one bad call by you, because I don't think I'm inferior to ANY one human being, OK? I just call them like I see them. I post my own personal opinions, free from near plagiarism, personal observations and experiences as I see them. If you don' like it, I hate it! Honest, unbiased, non-racists, intelligent people already know he's intelligent! YOU feel superior, so you scoff him as dumb!!

    May 6, 2011 at 8:20 am |
  20. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Jay; on May 6, 2011 5:37 am, you said the answer to my question was yes; 'we did ask for proof'. You said I was wrong, as always! On May 6, 2011 8:08 am, you said no, 'we did not get out kicking and screaming for it as proof because it was there. Bush gave the proof to us'. Talk about arguing with yourself, spinning and crazy! BTW, speaking of folks not correcting posted lies, did you ever find anywhere ever that I said I wanted or even suggested that I wanted proof of Bush's WMDs? Don't worry about it.

      Stop quoting people or a Liberal my accuse you of plagiarism. You opinion is any thing but unbiased, and non-racist, ha. You were the one that said black men work harder than white men.

      All that is important now it that Barry has broken international law. The UN is investigating him for illegally killing Osama. Yep, they will be coming to cart him off to trial, all the way to another country. Nothing he can do about it, our laws will not protect him. Remember, you are the one that taught me that the UN is in charge. Well, at least Barry want have to go on any more of those expensive date nights. Maybe they will keep him in Spain, that way The First Date might come and visit.

      May 6, 2011 at 6:43 pm |
  21. Liz Carter in Georgia

    I never said the UN was in charge of anything except when it came to international policy. Now you and the rest of the cons are crying foul that OBL may have been killed illegally!? You accuse me of being insulting, simply because I make an experienced comment! You're insulting the families of the people who died on 911, of which Bin Laden was 'supposedly' the architect! Was that legal? Furthermore, according to you, BUSH and 'his people' MAY have to take the 'credit', since you claimed OBAMA did nothing!

    May 6, 2011 at 9:29 pm |
    • Jay in NC

      I think that the fact that Pakistan is in another country makes this an international policy problem. The chickens are coming home to roost.

      May 6, 2011 at 10:13 pm |
  22. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Problem? It's international policy alright! That's exactly why I think the 'fact' that Osama Bin Laden's name was placed on the 'WORLD'S, not just the 'AMERICA'S MOST WANTED LIST', but the 'WORLD'S MOST WANTED LIST' in 1999, the international policies of regulations and authorizations had already been satisfied and put in place. Go back to roosting chicken!

    May 7, 2011 at 2:48 pm |
  23. Liz Carter in Georgia

    LOL! Now all of sudden certain folk are concerned with INTERNATION LAW, when they argued with some of us that it didn't supercede the CONSTITUTION of THE UNITED STATES, when OBAMA was trying to make sure he had the permission to go to LIBYA. They are sitting back hoping that he broke UN LAW now; Oh it's important now, right? LOL! Stop the fake drama and concern! We know why you're really hoping he broke it! It's all about 'WE WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK'; out of those black hands 'by any means necessary'!

    May 7, 2011 at 3:06 pm |
    • Jay in NC

      There you go again with those racist comments. Just like Toni Morrison and The First Date. Foul language all around.

      Barry sat back and watched Osama watch TV. Waited until the heat about his personal issues, such as birth certificate got a little too hot. Then he did a drive by shooting, typical, no class. Now he is spiking the foot ball and claiming mission accomplished. What a looser.

      Barry, if your name sake, Osama was in Pakistan why did you send over 100,000 men to Afghanistan? Wow that was a blonder, 1000s dead, billions of dollars, could have ended this months ago. No he wanted to continue spending the billions thats what Liberals do, tax, spend, tax spend.

      Ha, ha, GITMO closed yet Barry?

  24. Liz Carter in Georgia

    Yep! Here I go again with my 'racist comments' and 'foul language'. I see you're a pitifully, mis-guided person who continues to RATHER call me a 'racist' and say my comments are 'racist' comments and 'foul language', when truth is, it's easier for you to post that stupid false accusation everytime, than to claim and accept reality of the truth! My comments aren't racist, they simply point out RACISM, and you hate the REAL RACISTS hidden agendas always being uncovered by me or anybody else on this blog!

    May 8, 2011 at 5:59 pm |
  25. Liz Carter in Georgia

    May 7,2011 3:24 pm This post is a typical example of 'foul language'! As a matter of fact, most of your posts are basicly nothing more than cronicles of hyped-up repititions of Foxnews/Limbaugh/Beck/Conservative/Teabagging poison spew of demogaguery, that you purposely try hard to cause anger, division, envy, hate, and malice so that the real problem, the real monster of our AMERICAN society can never really be candidly addressed, worked through nor resolved! You rather deny the problem is an issue at all.
