    Wonder if any of them miss Bush yet?

    For my part, I am against troops in Syria or any military action there. Have said it before, and will say it again: war is bad. We have no friends on either side, we have nothing to gain, and lives and dollars to lose. Just like when that other guy was in the White House. Circumstances and likelihood of outcome are the same.

    One of the biggest problems in this country is the willingness of many (like Mr. McCoy) to assume that anyone who doesn’t fully agree on any one issue has to be wrong on every other issue. Not all liberals are for war; not all are against. Same with conservatives. Blanket generalizations are divisive, counter-productive, and serve no useful purpose. Too bad so many people are so willing to make outrageous assumptions about “the other side”. Consensus can never occur under those circumstances, which seem more and more intentional.

    I, too, am against military action in Syria. I know, gasp away. The issue is that Obama overpromised his threats of strike. Back when he drew the infamous red line comment, and then flip-flopping on his disarmament thoughts… we have a distinct issue of Big Bad Wolf syndrome. He huffed and he puffed, and… didn’t blow crap down.

    Agreed. It is almost always stupid to threaten based on whether someone does something or not. The “red line” comment was a time bomb waiting to happen.

    And making it worse won’t make it better.
    Killing so as not to look foolish…..
    Image, public perception, this rules the actors so they are silent.
    The previous noise was a put on as well, dictated by box office predictions.
    Come to think of it, sounds just like current politics. Rather, silents just like current politics.

    Actually, no, McCoy is once again factually incorrect, as he almost always is. Several of these identifiable people have in fact spoken loudly and publicly against the possibility of war with Syria. It’s one of the more bizarre misconceptions of McCoy and his friends on the radical right that the left is worshipfully uncritical of Obama. The opposite is true; there is intense disappointment and even fury against Obama on the left, since he has governed really as a rather conservative Republican.

    Strange… in 2003, we were told that we must invade Iraq because Saddam had chemical weapons and was likely to use them. Those who actually paid attention, were suspicious.Turns out we were right. Boy McCoy supported the lie. He was gung-ho for that war and ridiculed anyone who suggested we give the UN more time.

    In Syria, there is no question that chemical weapons have been used, only whether it was on Assad’s orders. Thousands are dying through conventional warfare. There are compelling arguments for and against getting involved. But, all McCoy has to say is some BS about actors. What a lightweight. What a hypocrite.

    Had enough ‘Liberal Dem Slander’ aka ‘The Truth’?

    I don’t know what the basis of this cartoon is. All the liberals I know are dead set against military intervention of any kind and there are plenty of petitions with up to 100k signatures from liberal organizations against war. Nice to see the conservative echo chamber is still in full force, despite it’s continuing disparity with reality.

    I guess conservatives can never pass up an opportunity to toss an insult, regardless of whether it has any bearing on anything that happens in real life.

    And no, none of us miss Bush, and yes, most of us are very disappointed in Obama. The idea that we revere him is beyond absurd. If you want to see reverence of a President that is completely ill-founded, look at the way the conservatives drool over Reagan, despite the fact that right now we’re basically living his trickle down dream (not to mention that he sold out American soldiers and citizens to get elected.). But even he knew more about how government functions than today’s lineup. “Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit.”-RWR. Learn it, live it.

    You want to see a liberal criticize Obama? OK, here goes. Dear President Obama, you sold us out. You wasted political capital on health care when you should have been reinstating Glass-Steagall. You should have been prosecuting Wall St. You have appointed economic advisors almost exclusively from Goldman-Sachs and completely ignored Stiglitz and Krugman, who have been right over and over about our economy and how the trickle down economy is ruining the middle class. This Syrian baloney is beyond the pale. You will never get another dollar from me. You sold me out!

    There. You happy now? Most of my liberal friends feel the same way. We criticize the guy every day and twice on Fridays. Please do try to keep up.

    Considering the international community is now backing the “Putin plan”, and “strike first” has always seemed totally out of character for Obama and Kerry, have they “punk’d” the folks, and actually gotten the “unilateral U.S. action” off the table?

    BTW, like me, most of those “celebrities” have spoken out against war on Syria, so I guess McCoy has also been punk’d but that’s an easy target.

    Oh, I’m also happy to criticize Clinton, too. He trashed us with NAFTA and with repealing Glass-Steagall. Wasting his political capital on health care reform was also idiotic.
