It's just shrinkage. You know, when you go FULL TILT there is shrinkage. Just ask Smasharoo, he knows all about it. It's normal, it's normal.

No one can rival the magnificence of proteins karma. It is truly a sight to behold. Something to be whispered about behind closed doors.

There's nothing small about my karma. Look at my karma. This is a large karma. People come to me to tell me how large my karma is and how they're inspired by it. There's nothing small about it, believe me Smiley: mad

I don't think anyone's defending Obama so much as not being nearly as surprised and/or upset about it as you are. I can't speak for others on this forum, but for me, it's a matter of prioritization. Out of the rather long list of things that I disagree with that Obama has done during his administration, failing to call the Armenian Genocide a genocide is ridiculously far down on that list. And just to end the whole thing with an absurd analogy, it would be like complaining that Hitler never got around to painting that wonderful landscape that he promised to paint for us when he was running for Chancellor back in 33.

Too much? Smiley: nod

Well, I don't remember Hitler genociding millions of artists because he was anti-artist, and the world not even 100 years later acknowledging this as a simple fucItalic Textking fact.

Where does this rank for Armenian-American descendents of genocide who voted for him in part due to his promises, which he failed on.

And let's say he'd promised to acknowledge the Rwandan Genocide (if Rwanda was an important country now so he'd have to reconsider) in or order to win votes, yet never delivered. Should refugees who voted for him be ******* Obviously yes. He's put politics over humanity, even after promising to do the opposite. He's Turkey's *****. A lying coward and piece of shit on this particular issue.

And? What about all the other promises he failed to deliver on?

Do you honestly think he gained more vote promising to recognize the Armenian Genocide than he did promising all those cushy benefits to unions? Or the environmental stuff to environmentalists? Or the trade changes to blue collar workers? Or unemployment benefits? Housing benefits? Tax credits? The list goes on and on and on.

My major issue with your complaint is that you make it out like he singled out this one issue to renege on. The fact is that he's got a pretty terrible track record with a lot of his promises. He basically promised everyone everything back in 2008 to get elected. No sane person should have thought going in that he could possibly keep all the promises (especially since some of them were contradictory). Some of us pointed this out back in 2008. So yeah, if you voted for him because you honestly thought he was going to do all those things he promised, then you got taken. You'll just have to deal with it.


There's a much bigger picture here.

Um, yes he does. Maybe you need to look again at this thread title and topic, which I didn't start? Maybe I'm singling out his dealing with the Armenian Genocide here because this thread is titled "On the Armenian Genocide". Start a thread titled "On the Obama Drone Bombing" or "On the Obama Refusal to Prosecute Bush Era Torturers, Move Forward" and I'd be right there. I'm not making it out like anything. Have you even seen/read my "Does Obama Officially Suck Now" thread, where I list dozens of terrible track records very early in his admin??

But this thread is laser-focused on this particular topic. ARMENIAN GENOCIDE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. VERY SIMPLE. YES OR NO.

Obama has done an awful lot of bad things. Including reneging on the promise to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide as a genocide, which is the topic of this thread. And which is binary, yes/no. Obama chose NO, not gonna do that.

"major issue", "making it out like". WTF. No, that's the current topic in this thread. GTFO with "major issue", Sir Ignorant. You're responding to the wrong person, dude.

If you want "laser focus", we should restrain ourselves to talking about 2007's House Resolution 106 and whether or not the House of Representatives should pass a resolution calling upon President Bush to acknowledge the event as a genocide. And there was actually four options to pick from, not just two. You know -- if we're to have laser focus on the OP.

Maybe we should wait until the Latest Coup attempt by the military is over and then we might be able to say something.

Think of it as keeping up the diplomatic pressure. If we don't keep spamming this thread might fall off the first page sometime next year, then who would be left to hold Turkey accountable?
