    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.

    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?

    4 Simple questions from a reputable attorney (MUST READ)

    This really should get your “gray matter” to churning, even if you are an Obama fan. I wouldn’t want my hero to be made out to be a liar, would you?

    For all you “anti-Fox News” folks, none of this information came from Fox. All of it can be verified from legitimate sources (Wikipedia, the Kapiolani hospital website itself, and a good history book, as noted herein). It is very easy for someone to check out.

    4 Simple Questions

    1. Back in 1961 people of color were called ‘Negroes.’ So how can the Obama ‘birth certificate’ state he is “African-American” when the term wasn’t even used at that time ?

    2. The birth certificate that the White House released lists Obama’s birth as August 4, 1961 & Lists Barack Hussein Obama as his father. No big deal, Right ? At the time of Obama’s birth, it also shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama’s father was born in "Kenya , East Africa ".
    This wouldn’t seem like anything of concern, except the fact that Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama’s birth, and 27 years after his father’s birth. How could Obama’s father have been born in a country that did not yet Exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the “British East Africa Protectorate”. (check it below) (

    3. On the Birth Certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is “Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital”.
    This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961 were called “KauiKeolani Children’s Hospital” and “Kapi’olani Maternity Home”, Respectively.
    The name did not change to Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978, when these two hospitals merged.
    How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978 ?

    Why hasn’t this been discussed in the major media ?

    4. Perhaps a clue comes from Obama’s book on his father. He states how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. I’m not a math genius, so I may need some help from you. Barack Obama’s “birth certificate” says his father was 25 years old in 1961 when Obama was born. That should have put his father’s date of birth approximately 1936-if my math holds (Honest! I did That without a calculator!!!) Now we need a non-revised history book-one that hasn’t been altered to satisfy the author’s goals-to verify that WW II was basically between 1939 and 1945. Just how many 3 year olds fight in Wars? Even in the latest stages of WW II his father wouldn’t have been more than 9 years old. Does that mean that Mr. Obama is a liar, or simply chooses to alter the facts to satisfy his imagination or political purposes (still Obama, our president qualifies as a “liar”) ?

    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.
