1. Whoa!
At first I was thinking, "this guy's a fucking jerk!" and by the end I was going, "Yeah, I totally agree with this guy."

Funny how that happens sometimes.

3. Sometimes you gotta let it all go...
And sound like a jerk. I felt the same way you did. I agreed with everything he said. Especially the part about that "What's he hiding" bullshit. When people say "What is Obama hiding" it's the biggest kneejerk load of horseshit I think I've ever heard out of a right wing so desperate for logical excuses to explain away their blatant racism. I'm with this guy. Even if he's a fucking jerk. I think we need as many logical jerks as we can get. Beats the pants out of the loser attitude a lot of us democrats have been putting on for years now.

Doesn't mean he doesn't make sense here and there.

Saeed Kamali Dehghan in Tehran
Barack Obama took office amid fevered speculation that the moderate former president of Iran, Mohammad Khatami, was to announce his candidacy for Iran's upcoming presidential elections.

Khatami told aides that he would announce his decision in the next few days, local Iranian news agencies reported.

With the prospect of a renewed Khatami presidency, thousands of Iranians who were watching the inauguration ceremony via their illegal satellite dishes were given a glimmer of hope that three decades of Iran-US hostility might be about to end.

7. Speak your truth!
I agree with this guy, reactions to President Obama run the gamut from unquestioning adulation to virulent hate and every point in between.

11. Sure, this guy is sort of a douche...
Opinionated, absolutely sure that his opinions are correct, and obnoxious about it. I can think of a lot people (including myself) that are similar, especially here on DU.

I don't agree with everything in his rant, and I think he basically dismisses the whole of the human race in it, but I say to him: "Have at my friend. It's your right to be sort of a douche and envision yourself the superior human if you like".


But seriously, a little self-examination couldn't hurt.
