    If you really don't think that the man is good person, fine.  Disagree and keep it moving.  Why hijack this diary with a discussion on drones?

    Drones are a part of war.  Whether you use them or use ground troops or an aerial assault, the results will be the same.  This President never promised no wars ever.  However he finished what other Presidents started.

    This irrational discussion will not draw others to partake in it if you persist in trying to shove it down people's throats.

    Give the man a damn break in comforting these children.  That's part of his job.

      why are you posting a comment on it (not even in reply to anyone in particular) and illicit comment on that very topic?

      is absurd. It isnt even about whether he is a good person or not, I don't even care about that, but the idea that a picture of a president with some kids makes it completely clear that he is a good man is absurd. It would be absurd no matter who is depicted in the photo. If someone posted a picture of MLK with some kids and put that forth as proof of what a good person MLK is that would be just as absurd, even though I find MLK to be one of the greatest men to have lived.
