You disagree with his stance on American muscle-flexing (a reflection of the "Cuban" part of you, perhaps) and so he's not smart? For the record, compassion is never "retarded"? Being able to control one's rage and feelings in general so as to be able to ask questions of the powers that be is indeed a mark of intelligence.

I buy this.

I still hold he doesn't have very good vision, though.

in todays pass happy NFL RB's are all but obsolete , and its fullish to use a high draft pick on one or pay them a huge salary.
the picks and money are better spent on the oline which makes or breaks a RB.
i questioned the mendenhall pick on draft day , not because of his college resume , but because of the steelers commitment to putting good blockers in front of him. so far its been to little too late by the steelers.

If a RB needs a great o-line to average more than 4.0 YPC, that RB isn't very good. 4.0 YPC isn't asking much.

Mendenhall sucks. I don't care how bad his o-line is, a first round RB should never average what Mendenhall averages. It's pathetic, actually.
dude barry sanders did not need an oline!. HELL, he could have had NO OLINE at all and still led the league in rushing! the dude had mooves on top of moves. he was a true freak of nature.

RASHARD MENDENHALL IS NOT BARRY SANDERS!

so to agree with you..

YES!!! RASHARD NEEDS A GOOD OLINE!
and
YES!!! RASHARD SUCKS!

compassion for a guy who has killed thousands of innocent people seems a little misguided to me. IMO its a little crazy, same as having compassion for a guy on death row who has killed people. Anyway if the guy wants to label Mendy an analytical thinker for that so be it, I still stand by my original opinion that its obtuse. Thats the beauty of this country we can each have an opinion. The only part of me that has anything to do with Cuba is the fact that I enjoy their cigars, my opinion is based on the fact that I believe in accountability and Osama was finally held accountable, therefore I celebrated his death.

Firstly, thanks to a group of SEALs we'll never know what crimes bin Laden did or did not commit, since now he cannot be put on trial.

Secondly, Barak Obama has killed many more people than bin Laden ever could have. As did Bush before him. As did Clinton, as did Bush Sr., and Reagan before him. Maybe Carter killed less, kinda doubt it, though. Yet I suspect most people in this country feel like it's possible to have some sort of compassion for the violent sociopaths we regularly elect to our top office.

Thirdly, equating extra-judicial assassinations with accountability is a dangerous and irresponsible line of reasoning. Surely you understand that. Also, simply taking the government's word on matters of consequence is not a terribly bright policy. I suspect that many, if not all of the main accusations against bin Laden were true, but why not prove it to the world? That, in part at least, was Mendy's point, and a sound point it was.

Politicians tell us what we want to hear and how much we hear so taking their word is not my policy. I am skeptical and cynical when it comes to politicians especially a certain side but I will keep that to myself. I believe its apples to oranges comparing OBL to past presidents though. Terrorism and war are different to me. I am pretty sure we will not agree on much when it comes to government and the way we feel about the country, but I still don't get how Mendy not understanding how people celebrate OBL's death just because we didn't know the man. We all saw him on tape admitting to killings, hating America and planning additional bombings so celebrating is death shouldn't be hard to understand. Nor should it be hard to understand how a 747 could bring down a skyscraper when we saw it with our own eyes. I just don't see how it was analytical thinking on his part. With that said, he is paid to run the football and I think he is above average with huge potential. Along with thousands dead from OBL 343 were brother firefighters so I don't analyze it, to me its loyalty and whats in my heart.

He doesn't get paid to speak his mind. Neither do I, nor you, but so what? 9/11 was a profound tragedy and a crime against humanity no matter how you look at it. Nothing that Mendenhall said negated or diminished that, so I'm not sure how people could have misconstrued that aspect of it.

Regarding the conspiracy theories, yeah, well... you don't need to talk to me about that. But the flip side to it is that instinctively doubting the government's story is a positive, not a negative. Everyone should immediately ask themselves "How do I know this is true?" whenever the president says anything at all, including "The sky is up."

And yes, he's talented. We should be discussing why he's not setting the world on fire. I have my theories.
