i gave the guy two years and I'm not impressed he is what i thought he was.
he seriously is catching up to bush's legacy. expanded the war on terror don't get me started on this, he signed the NDAA, imprisoned more whistle blowers then any president in history. Frankly he failed as a black and and failed as a president.
so ill just say it, the state of the union is; royally fucked.
...also, if he does not Pardon Mumia he is going to lose his black card.
So lemme get this straight:
Obabo believes that Americans shouldn't have guns because guns kill children.
But children should fight in wars in third world countries.

On October 3, 2008, President George W. Bush signed into law “Child Soldiers Prevention Act of 2008,” a law that made it a federal crime to recruit or use soldiers under the age of 15. The law also gave the United States authority to “prosecute, deport or deny entry to individuals who have knowingly recruited children as soldiers.”
The bipartisan law, which was passed unanimously by both houses of Congress, drew the applause of several international human rights organizations:
“The US is saying to the world that using child soldiers is a serious crime and that it will take action,” said Jo Becker, children’s rights advocate for Human Rights Watch. “Military commanders who use children can no longer come to the United States without the risk of ending up in jail.”
>NOT ON MY WATCH!

If obama gets involved in foreign affairs, it's US imperialism.
If he distances himself from foreign affairs, the US is supporting child murder.
