    Save for a few exceptions, politicians are full of shit across the board. Calling them out for lying is like chastising a prostitute for sleeping around. :p

    Yeah, and if this speech that he gave was given before he took office or early in his term, the video is even more stupid.

    For what it's worth, Obama had all of these ideas in his head when he started out. Obviously he got in office and realized how hard it is to get everything you wanted as president. And now with Republicans able to override a lot of things that he wants accomplished, it's hard for him to keep his promises.

    Oh, and what the fuck Lupe Fiasco? Saying something that's controversial doesn't make you smart.

    Though Lupe is right.

    I am by no means an Obama supporter, as most on here probably know, but if Lupe had said that to me I woulda stuck up for ol' Barrack. I don't like a lot of what he does, but he's not the terrorist causing terrorists to terrorize. For such a lyrical cat, Lupe is a philosophical idiot.

    Obama hasn't righted the wrongs that Bush put into effect. He's also added fuel to the fire. He's not directly a terrorist, but his actions, or lack there of, are why terrorists target us.

    I can't say I fully disagree with that but calling him the biggest terrorist in the world is just stupid. The biggest terrorist in the world just got killed by Obama...

    I do disagree with what he's done with Libya (for example), but his intentions were good at least. The problem is that there are so many countries in similar positions that aren't getting attention. Either help them all or don't help them.

    I love Lupe's music and I sincerely hope he didn't literally mean what he said.

    And if you don't believe the ultra liberal Todd, look no further than the Hare Krishnas as further proof of religion as a cult.

    As someone mentioned here before, the definition of a terrorist is kind of nebulous. A hero to one person is a terrorist to another. I don't have a strong opinion either way, but one could make the argument that Obama (and nearly every American president of the past 60-or-so years, for that matter) is a terrorist.

    The only thing I heard Lupe say about Obama was "Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say shit." Can someone tell me on which song he called Obama a terrorist?

    It was an interview, he then further backed up his comments in another interview. Prodigy of Mobb Deep also agreed with him. He was invited to the O'Reily Factor, but supposedly declined, and O'Reily called him a 'pinhead' lolz, which is a lot nicer then what I would have said.

    Buddhism would like to speak to you. Probably the sanest 'religion' there is. Although it's more a way of life than a religion.

    Buddhism is the most sane, I'll give you that, but I still think that believing in the existence of a god or some other higher power makes as much sense as believing in the existence of Santa Claus or the tooth fairy.

    Believing in a man is one thing. Believing that man can work magic is another thing.

    Many men named Jesus walked the Earth.

    Jesus was also a Buddhist.

    Also, he wasn't white.

    And the books of the Bible were cherry-picked by misogynistic racist old men.
