I don't think I expressed an opinion of either one. It is hypocritical to say that Bush was just following the customs of that country, and Obama was doing something awful.

Fracking doesn't have anything to do with it.

Glenn Beck gives powers that be until Monday or he will blow the lid off

instead of just admitting that he has nothing and the saudi student is not linked to the bombing or any terrorist organization beck appears to be doubling down on the wrong. unfortunately, from reading some of the posts in this thread, it seems to be a successful strategy.

Ah, creating something from nothing that will churn the hard-right into a frenzy. Got it.

Saudi Muslims are a protected class in the USA. America respects money- not good behavior.

What is so obvious is they both did what NO President should ever do....one is to never bow or kiss a king, second never bury the U.S.A. in so much debt and blame the citizens for their addictions. Rather than tell us it's they who have the problem they blame the citizens and try to tax/lie their way out of debt.

If we did our own fracking or drilling we wouldn't need the Middle East, some choose to send our kids instead to fight in a country we don't belong.


I do believe President Obama's view of the Saudi family is much more than them being oil giants...... they own Mecca.
