This is something i have been questioning myself for a while.

LOL Obama takes on Phil Ivey in the heads up final of the WSOP.........lol

Americans all the way through history have made some big gaffs and usually make the right decission in the end.

They either give up and stop challenging the poker players of the world or they'll get in on the action and start up poker site from the white house. Agree

Surely there is something wrong with American politicians, banning poker sites and freezing transactions.
Thank god rest of countries are not like this
But good news for fulltilt and cake as their traffic will increase. cake is a new site and deserves more traffic then its getting now.
