yeah i hear you guys but losing a leg and losing the ability to properly express yur self are 2 diffrent beasts. yeah i know theres people with other crisis im sad for them too. but think for a minute no leg but you can still talk. if obama had no legs he can still be president but if he had no lips i doubt he will get far during debates with the camera focused on your face and your lips start cracking and burning and swelleng up as you talk.
yes the lip stuff is small compared to other body parts but the effects are much greater.
