What was with the teeth showing comment, is there an underlying meaning to that?

Seems you follow the President more than most, might I suggest getting a life of your own.

I challenge you to name a time when a POTUS was faced with so many international crises, of such magnitude, at one time.

The man goes out of his way to be a "Celebrity President"
Because he's a man. That's what we do.

Because Democrats need to remind people that they have testicles.

Because that carries some weight with your average ignorant, lazy, apathetic US voter.

Are you aware of how many sports talk shows are on 24/7 these days? ..........Grown men obsessing with every little detail of some pro athelete's personal life like little 15 year old girls do with boys in their school?

It's just playing to that stupidity.

I don't know and I don't care, but could someone post the link to his picks so I don't have to look for myself.

Because narcissists only care about things that entertain them personally, like being a celebrity candidate adored by huge crowds as a result of his incredible achievements. Or like graduating from a super-liberal college and law school, and getting elected by a super-liberal student body to positions of honor but no responsibility such as President of the Harvard Law Review: "As president of the Harvard Law Review and a law professor in Chicago, Senator Barack Obama left a scant paper trail. His name doesn't appear on any legal scholarship." As to those who argue that his official role was to edit and review other students' articles, they ignore the fact that others in that position were extremely prolific and insightful, as well as the fact that 80 law-student editors actually do the "grunt work."

"Obama’s vol. 104 is the least-cited volume of the Harvard Law Review in the last 20 years... and the author of Poisoned Ivy: How Egos, Ideology, and Power Politics Almost Ruined Harvard Law School noted: “Obama was friendly and outgoing, but the class succeeding him wanted a tougher editor to lead them." HarvLawRevCites.pdf.

Going back farther, "Obama did not do nearly well enough at his previous stop, Columbia University, to justify admission to Harvard Law. According to the New York Sun, university spokesman Brian Connolly confirmed that Obama graduated in 1983 with a major in political science but without honors.
In the age of affirmative action and grade inflation, a minority in a relatively easy major like political science had to under-perform dramatically to avoid minimal honors. Obama apparently did just that....Five years after leaving Columbia, Obama decided on law school. His lack of resources did not deter him from thinking big. Nor did his B-minus effort at his Hawaii prep school or his equally indifferent grades at Columbia....We know enough about Obama's Columbia grades to know how far they fall below the Harvard norm, likely even below the affirmative action-adjusted black norm at Harvard. As far back as 1988, however, Obama had serious pull. As previously reported, Khalid al-Mansour, principle adviser to Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, lobbied friends like Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton to intervene at Harvard on Obama's behalf." Why Obama is mum about Harvard Why Obama is mum about Harvard

Let's face it, the major political parties offer us the absolute dregs for leadership of the nation, and with such chaff to choose from it is little wonder that they all have driven the nation to world greatness to bankruptcy with almost no hope for the future.

Does no one remember what a big football fan Nixon was?

January 16: Today In Sports History: President Richard Nixon Creates Play Used In Super Bowl VI Between The Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins - The Sports Chat Place

There has never been a bigger football fan in the White House than Richard Nixon and in 1972, a week before the Miami Dolphins played the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl VI, he drew up a play and sent it to Dolphin coach Don Shula.

And GWB once owned a baseball team, frequently went to baseball games.
