    Thank you fro bring things back on track. It was about Obama and his leadership qualities (or lack there of) until one certain liberal tried his redirection again. Seems that liberals in general have a problem with focus and seeing the picture.

          Go back and read the thread again. If you believe that is what was really happening, yeah, it's fine.

            I'm done. Go back to your inane backbiting.
            Fair enough. The main criticism here about being a good versus a bad leader has been the lack of oratory skills when speaking from a podium.

            Is that the main quality now considered to be whether a leader is considered good or bad?

                So, you have made a statement.

                A statement that you are incapable of holding an adult conversation.

                A statement that you are nothing more than a troll.

                And I disagree with Pres. Obama's more than you do. Imagine what the libs will have to say about your juvenile nonsense.

                  I simple "No" would have been more constructive than the actual post he made.

                    I make them all the time, but the libs on this board are incapable of addressing them with facts, rather conjecture, rhetoric, and trumped up statements.

                    For example, when challenged with facts like those found here, all liberals can say is that "greed" and lack of regulation caused our recession. They're incapable of moving past that.

                    Oh I was obviously a troll when I posted all this detailed flow data on intake valves.
                    And I was a Troll again when I did a followup test with a different set of valves on a truck with larger pump here.
                    And my thread on maximizing a hydrant with LDH instead of 2½” hose was the epitome of trollology.
                    And who could forget me posting my experiences with a TurboDraft?
                    Or here about shutting down a hot engine.
                    Or here about keeping a pump cool.
                    Or here and here about calculating GPM in hose based on water velocity during a pump service test.
                    Or here concerning intake hose arrangement for a pump service test.
                    Or here making a flashlight recommendation.
                    Or here where I compare the merits of a LED flashlight versus an incandescent.
                    Or here where I started a thread on the 2009 edition of NFPA 1901.
                    Or here concerning the fireground hydraulics issues contributing to the Charleston, SC fatalities.
                    Or here where I address the merits of a 5,000 psi hydraulic rescue tool versus a 10,500 psi tool.
                    Or here where I mention the differences between a turbine driven PTO, and a flywheel driven PTO.
                    Or here where I compare the theoretical friction loss of dual 3" versus a single 4".
                    Or here where I talk about my experience with Lasik.
                    Or here where I clarify the difference between the requirements, and recommendations, of NFPA 1901.
                    Or here where I talk about my Dept's use of 7¼" hose.
                    Or here where I discuss way to exceed the rated capacity of your pump.
                    Or here where I started a thread discussing the merits of switching from Pressure Governors back to Manual Throttle/PRV's.
                    Or here where I comment on the construction of a service test pit.
                    Or here where I clarify the term "sporting purpose", and how it is applied only to import, semi-automatic firearms.
                    Or here where I make a recommendation on a breathing air compressor and it's storage vessel.
                    Or here where I back-calculated scfire86's jointly filed 2007 AGI based on his statement that him and his wife made too much money to qualify for a stimulus check.

                    Yeah, your right George, I have nothing to contribute to these forums.

                    Put a sock in it you crybaby. You're just jealous that there's a conservative on here who's smarter and wittier (and likely better looking) than you.

                            Do that. Despite your continued entertaining remarks on his citizenship, he's still president and will be at least until Jan. 2013. Possibly Jan. 2017.

                                Comparison to others is for another place. This thread is about the lack of leadership shown so far.
