I will remind you briefly of the TOS of CC
5. Do not post Off-Topic threads. Off-Topic threads are threads that do not directly relate to the LEGO Company, its' products (LEGO Bricks), LEGO Fan creations, LEGO Fan customizations, the LEGO Fan community at large, and the topics relating to the architecture, lifestyle, and sequence of events of medieval history and medieval style fiction. Topics in question will be judged on or off topic by the Administration and/or Moderators, and if necessary, those topics will be locked. Users who frequently post Off-Topic threads with disregard to Administration and/or Moderator warnings will recieve disciplinary action.
Discussing politics in this thread is off topic. Keep this to a discussion of Obama's LEGO lesson only. I do not want to have to lock this topic, but I will if it strays into the politics area again.
Now back on topic. I find it to be a very good thing that important people around the world are exposed to our LEGO passion, may it be a president, an actor, a sports figure, whoever...the more the merrier.
