My humanist education forces me to respect different perspectives like yours, Mr. David Gilchrist. When, freely, I decided to express my applause and appreciation for President Obama concerning a “pledge to listen on behalf of children and families during the State of Union address,” I did not offend anyone, nor Mr. David Gilchrist, whom I do not know from anywhere.
On the other hand, I think that President Obama should not be blamed for the high national debt that has been accumulated over...

My humanist education forces me to respect different perspectives like yours, Mr. David Gilchrist. When, freely, I decided to express my applause and appreciation for President Obama concerning a “pledge to listen on behalf of children and families during the State of Union address,” I did not offend anyone, nor Mr. David Gilchrist, whom I do not know from anywhere.
On the other hand, I think that President Obama should not be blamed for the high national debt that has been accumulated over several decades. I also believe that it was not President Obama who triggered the great financial crisis that has spread to the whole World. Still, the respectful gratitude that I owe to my Family and to my University requires me to respect everyone, including Mr. David Gilchrist. So, I will not use expressions that offend the dignity of other human beings, whoever they are: all are my fellow citizens in the same Planetary Country, Demeter—our Mother Earth. In that America of dreams, there have been, for several decades now, working people of my Family and Country (Portugal), who are contributing with their creativity and hard, honest labor at all levels of the American society and life (from agriculture, industry, trade, and policy to the University) to the development of this great Nation that I also consider my Nation, that I admire, and to which I desire the best, in the same way that I desire the best for you, Mr. David Gilchrist. My respectful greetings.

Please do not forget that the existence of the actual «mapa-mundi», with its five geographical continents (with «The New World» — America), is due to my small country, Portugal, with its navigators and discoverers (including the famous Christopher Columbus who, as it is known, attended Naval School in Portugal and married a Portuguese woman named Filipa Moniz). Moreover, a very recent and well-argued research carried out by an accredited academic of IST Lisbon, Dr. Fernando Branco (Cf. Fernando Branco: Christopher Columbus - Noble Portuguese, Lisbon, Chiado Editora, 2012), argues that Christopher Columbus lived in Viseu, my hometown, where he undertook his basic education, including learning of Latin.
In conclusion: regarding my political sympathy for Barack Obama, I only can reaffirm ardently this sympathy for a Politician of the stature Obama, because he is indeed a very intelligent, very sensible and very clairvoyant Protagonist of a truly Humanist and Universalist Politics; so, my wish is that he were also the President of my small country, but also one of the oldest nations in Europe with a so unique and so rich history, and with a so wonderful People.

Pardon my mistakes in English.

Fernando Paulo Baptista, Viseu — Portugal.

I agree, but not to encourage their parents to be showing them how to live a good life {and not on government expense}.

I will not waste one second of my life watching Barack give another campaign speech. This man thinks that running for office is much more fun than being the office he already won. Sorry, I would love for Obama to do good by the kids, but I can't watch him give a speech.

Kathy Sellars I want to hear from you in 4 years. I bet you will not be singing the same song. You will be one of the thousands saying. "Oh I did not vote for that idiot Obama. I am glad he is gone." He is going to do all that he can to destroy America. Thank God he can only have 4 more years. I pray daily that our America people (yes even the idiots that voted him back in) have the strength and will power to stand up and fight and hang on to this great country. And not let the likes of...

And not let the likes of obama take us down. Get GOD BACK IN OUR COUNTRY! LEAVE OUR GUNS ALONE! And get obama out and we will survive. GOD BLESS THE USA.
