Obama gave a great foreign policy speech today addressing his toughest criticisms head on from drones, to GITMO, to civilian casualties, Americans being droned, and more.

He delivered devastating arguments refuting his detractors and defending his foreign policy. Explain that.

Wrong. His speech surprised me today, I was curious to see DDO's reaction. Some arguments I agreed with, some I didn't yet were difficult to refute.

It's not often that Obama delivers a speech without making your eyes roll.

No, it really didn't. You are about as entrenched in your ideas as a fatty loves cake. To make people take your actual ideas seriously and not dismiss you as a close-minded fanatic, which you are, you constructed this publicity stunt to make you appear "open minded. "

I take quite pride in my fervent, right wing Libertarianism. I have no issue with people saying I don't give Liberalism a chance because I dont. My views are sharper and more certain than ever, but I do not regret my past exploration of other ideologies.

Guilty as charged.

When I claim that the moon is fake, I dont say that with the expectation that people will take me more seriously. On the contrary, I proclaim these things when specifically pressed on those matters.

This is Debate.org, not PleaseEveryone.org.

It is my spirit of debate and respect for opposing views and recognition of their necessity and utility, that I post this video and give credit where it is due. It ideas that challenge my own that are the wet stone sharpening my blade of consciousness.
