    Harley, your grasp of history is truly astounding. To get everything so completely wrong, and this with things that have happened in the past ten years! You need to stop listening to conservative media. They’re cons, and you’re the mark.

    Ha. Obama and golf. That joke just gets better with time.

    “Funny how stable the global situation was when Bush left”

    Your delusions know no limit. Any stability was at the cost of the lives of numerous American soldiers (obviously not anyone you knew or cared about). If you think endless occupation is the path to American security, then go enlist. We’ll see what your opinion is when you’re in a pair of those “boots on the ground”.

    I note that while Wolf calls your statement a “delusion” he actually concedes your point, at least with regard to Iraq. He does miss the slow development of democratic institutions that occurred under President Bush’s tenure and which was abandoned under President Obama:

    Those who say Iraq was hopeless would have said the same thing about South Korea. Had we withdrawn from South Korea too quickly I don’t doubt that that country would also have failed.

    The main difference, is that the South Korean government and the South Koreans themselves still wanted us there to protect them from the North Korean Government.

    And the government of Iraq along with at least a significant number of the people of Iraq wanted us out of their country so badly that they were still willing to kill our people. Even the former president himself finally realized this and made a deal for us to get out. In fact our current president tried to get that deal changed so that we could stay. But as the Iraq government wanted control over our own forces so that our people could be tried for crimes in a totally Muslim court (which I am certain that even the ultra conservatives here would have strongly objected to). So, bowing to the pressure of the Iraq government with a substantial amount of the people of Iraq as well as a substantial amount of Americans here at home, President Obama correctly pulled us out of the ten year long quagmire that was the Iraq War that we should never have even pursued in the first place!

    All reasonable Americans can now do is to hope (and yes, even pray) that our current president has the guts and intelligence to not listen to the ultra conservative types here and elsewhere and not get us into another such fiasco!!!

    Would you even begin to understand that?

    Wow. Just wow. What could possibly be more clever — not to mention original than a cartoon about Obama and golf?


    Way to go Jerry! You’ve done it again. And again. And again.

    “Oh please, you just can not admit that GW Bush was a diplomat that got things done by working with other governments.”
    -
    Yes, diplomats always get things done with other countries by invading them.

    And still no jokes about congress still being out to recess. Oh wait, it’s only if Congress would actually be working that there would be news.

    The golf non issue is just so very tedious. But then, so are those that think it’s news.
