He IS, unfortunately: our President. He is, for all American's--he's our responsibility, and our mess to clean up, when our gov't and society finally come to their collective senses and make real reforms in gov't.

What I don't understand is, what the Sam Hill does a "leader" have anything to do with

Oh come on...we respect you...so long as your name's not "Yusuf Islam," "Maher Arar," or "Jose Padilla." We'll be ever so polite, as we extroadinarily render your butt someplace out in the sticks, where the locals can torture you until they get tired of it.

But seriously, there IS a difference btw "American's," and the US. American's can be very polite and respectful, IMO. What they lack is some sense of responsibility, and connection, to what their gov't (the "US") does, supposedly in their name.
