    Obama's a liar. There is no point in listening to anything he says, let alone eight minutes worth. Pass.

    yeh there is no point in listening to someone if you already have an opinion. when did having more information about something do any good?

    How often do you watch Fox News or have you formed an opinion that it isn't worth listening to? (It isn't)

    I think most people have heard the president speak enough that if they don't think he's worth listening to they have heard enough to have a strong basis for their view.

    You don't get information from Obama. You get lies and spin.

    and you feel comfortable saying that, even if you did not watch it. maybe it is a youtube of obama saying jokes. maybe it is a youtube of him admiting bush is a great man.

    so if you don't want to participate in the discussion because you have no idea what the discussion is about, and you do not wish to even learn what the subject is, the reason for you posting here is...

    some people criticize obama for failure to use force in US foreign policy.

    when has that become a reason to criticize a head of state? when has it become the default measure the US must take rather than the last resort?


    watch the video, hear his arguments and decide for yourselves if he has a point, like adults do. don't cover your years like speshul children do.

    Sleepyguy expressed his opinion "Obama's a liar. There is no point in listening to anything he says, let alone eight minutes worth. Pass."

    I believe it is a legitimate position and I believe you were wrong to criticize him for this position. I pointed out there are plenty of things like you would read even though because you feel it is not worth listening too or too biased when you are far less familiar with then then Obama's positions.

    he made an unsupported statement based on conservative/republican/whatever bias. i suggested sarcastically that maybe he should actually see what the youtube is about.

    you are right however. i should have asked him, like i asked you, that if you don't have anything to say about the topic proposed, if you aren't even interested in finding what the topic is, maybe you should just refrain from trolling and just keep out.

    basic manners.

    No, he actually said something about the topic. He considered Obama a liar and he felt it was a waste of time to hear his justification on an issue. You did not like the opinion he gave which is certainly your right. If you want to argue that his opinion is not persuasive or you disagree with it, that's fine. But the idea that he should not give the opinion because it is too different from the narrow scope of opinions on the topic that you wished to consider is fairly narrow minded.
