    Har! We were in Cambodia long before Nixon. Syria is more the Gordian knot than a Rubick’s cube. No time for the big sword when it needs to be untied this time.

    - No troops on the ground, no reason to bother.

    RepubliCons: Call for WAR non stop and COMPLAIN it’s not war-like ENOUGH when it arrives. Payne is absurd.
    -
    Vote vote vote out the RepubliCons. Let CONGRESS start voting straight up or down on the Country’s business again, INCLUDING war.

    If you don’t hear the protests, you’re not listening, Henry, but maybe they aren’t loud because common human decency demands that Obama fix what Bush broke.

    .
    Though I’m not surprised you’re puzzled: If your heroes understood the concept of “common human decency,” we wouldn’t be in this situation in the first place.

    It’s not anti-war left, it’s anti-hawk left.

    Even in WWII, there was a tiny, insignificant group who opposed the war. In the ‘70s, the group was somewhat larger, but still a minority, the overwhelming majority of US voters knew that, if the US did not fight the Commies in Vietnam, we’d all have to queue for bread and we’d only have one brand of toothpaste, so the voters chose strong Presidents who did all they could (until undercut by traitors) to prosecute the war. As Nixon said, the Democrats snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Nixon explained that he had unconditionally won the war when the Democrats forced him to resign and handed the defeated Commies an undeserved victory.


    Today, most US voters know we must wage war against the Islamist terrorists, meaning every Muslim who is not a devout Wahabbi (although among the non-terrorists, we might also include those non-Wahabbis who at least accept the main principle of Islam, the Divine Right of the King who is Keeper of the Two Holy Mosques, whose word is the Word of Allah, who is the spiritual and temporal leader of all TRVE Islam, and who pays good baksheesh to the elected leaders in the US and Europe).

    If you like going to war. vote republican. They are just itching to send in the troops. They have a lot of practice. What they don’t seem to be able to do is anything in Congress.

    If you like having terrorists visit your country, vote democrat. They are just itching to sit on their butts and welcome you in. They have a lot of practice. What they don’t seem to be able to do is anything helpful in Congress.

    Now I’ll add.
    Democrats also have a great record of screwing up things that were working fine. That goes for healthcare, peace, a capitalist economy and just about everything else in this country. When the pollsters call and ask “what is the number one problem that this nation is facing” and they list 5 or 6 items, I have a really hard time choosing one now because they are all major problems. I used to only have a couple when repubs were in office, Now? All of them. What is the commonality here? Dems have been in office and have had a controlling vote since 2007. So you want to continue to vote democrat because you think they will eventually get it right or that the republicans are “obstructionist” even though Reid sits on their legislation and that jerk of yours is in the WH? The definition of an idiot is continuing to beat your head against a wall and expecting a different outcome other than a bloody forehead. If you have tenderized hamburger for a forehead, perhaps you should consider moving away from the left……just sayin’.

    This is all that matters to the right-wingers,

    The $4 trillion is a little high, but the rest is spot on.

    Obama has spent twice that amount. So who bankrupt us?

    @jack75287

    Your friendly Securities and Exchange Commission, which has poured $7 trillion of that money into an ungrateful and still-greedy Wall Street gang of thieves.

    By the bye, this was independent of what the president or congress wanted or didn’t want.

    And who was president when the economy went south in the course of a couple of days?

    Hint: September, 2008. Further hint: not the guy from Chicago

    Obama spent $8 trillion illegally invading Iraq and Afghanistan? Surely you know that to be a lie so I will assume that you were not trying to allege that. But if you are trying to imply that Obama spent $8 trillion, a little exercise in facts needs to be done.
    Debt as of 9/26/14 $17.788 trillion
    Debt as of 9/30/2009 $11.910 trillion
    So for fiscal year over fiscal year Obama has presided over an increase in debt of $5.878 trillion.
    If you want to ignore all of the spending during baby bush’s last fiscal year then the increase is $7.161 trillion. In either case Obama hasn’t spent your $8 trillion figure. Not to mention solidly $2 trillion of that $5.8 or $7.1 is due to legacy costs from baby bush’s lies in the world’s sandbox and other failed policies not to mention fall-out from bush’s recession.

    Many Democrats spoke the same way in the 1930’s.

    Yes, because as long as it’s only our bombs that touch the ground, we aren’t really involved. We can claim magic bomb faeries are attacking ISIL And they’ll have to accept that because..hey. No boots.

    I would have to say yours and a couple of other commentators have really proven Mr. Payne’s point for him.

    I don’t disagree with a large part of it. That excuses Obama going back in how?
