    If only Cheney had been more clear. “Deficits don’t matter… so long as WE’RE in charge!”

    Who controls the spending? Oh yeah, it’s the Republican House. There’s fail here and it’s not Obama.

    …let’s get out of the whole area.

    We carried alot more weight than that during WW1 and WW2 and were stronger from the effort. If Congress had taken their laser focus on jobs and really worked to fix what is broke in the USA, we could do it again.
    Sadly, our own tribes of Republicans and Democrats are quite satisfied in the USA not winning at anything as long as the blame can be deflected and the “other side” doesn’t come out looking good.
    It’s pretty pathetic.

    For the first 2 years of Obama the dems controlled the House and the Senate.And that’s when most of the spending took place.Obama spent more in the first couple of years then Bush did in 8.Their are dem controlled government websites with spending information on them and they are not hard to find.
    No spending bills from the Republican House get to the floor of the Democrat controlled Senate unless the dems agree.

    Talking about the situation is doing something: it’s putting off the likelihood that Assad the Monster will gas his women and children again anytime soon. And THAT would have been one of the purposes, perhaps THE purpose, of a bombing. So maybe what we’ve gained from Obama’s caution is the most we could’ve gained anyway. That may not be enough for the Hate Barry Crowd, but it looks like significant to me. Just sayin’..

    So “hope and change” becomes “Cry HAVOC!”

    It there was ever a time to not do something but just stand there, this is it.

    And, can anyone explain who Bush being a **** is an excuse for Obama to be one?

    While Varvel does raise a good point here, the “Syria” disc is much too large in proportion to problem and cost. Well, except the “ethical cost” of waging war on a country that has not attacked us.

    Best to let the Russian plan for removing the chemical weapons, and letting the International Criminal Court, that we have NOT ratified to support, handle the internal “issues” in Syria.

    It should be a wake-up call when our “enemies” keep coming up with more rational solutions than ours.

    Its not like the Saudi’s are going to fake another one with the world watching this closely.
    The problem of using chemicals is done, no cruise missiles were necessary.
    Unless deterrence was never the intent?

    Keep calm and carry on.

    This is, of course, all false.

    “And you are right vburke, “There’s a fail(ure) here and it’s not Obama.””
    Everything about Obama says failure. A true leader would have found ways to unite our factions rather than intentionally drive wedges between them.

    lonecat, remember:
    And what is truth? said jesting 4my10851cs and would not stay for an answer.
    It’s all the same no matter whose name you put in there. And they never do stay for an answer.

    @martens is REALLY fed up

    It’s somewhat interesting that the whole post is false. It’s more interesting that someone (who claims to be a lawyer) would go to the trouble of weaving this web of lies, and also more interesting that someone would fall for it. Kind of pathetic, if it weren’t dangerous.
