    Could we really have expected anything else from an established member of the Money And Perpetual War Party? Vote third party. VOTE GREEN!

    Hardly fair to say he ‘started’ a war in Somalia. More like jumping back into a war that’s been going on for the last 20 years.

    What kind of idiot is Ted Rall? How does he figure Obama started any of those wars? The people living in the countries started the wars. Nonsense like this is why I haven’t trusted reporters or political cartoonist since the Nam days.

    so by that logic, since Iraqis have been in a sectarian war for decades, including the annihilation of 2 millions Kurds, Bush didn’t really start the Iraq war…

    Get us out of all the wars we’re involved in (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya {Europes problem}, etc), bring back the 75% tax rates for the very rich, with no loopholes, bring back the tax on stock transaction, outlaw credit default swaps and other money shuffling schemes, bring back the estate tax which only affected the megarich. Reduce funding for the DOD and the pentagon by at least half. Employ the former soldiers & sailors and the currently unemployed rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure.

    While I question the topic by which Rall is arguing about “wars started” by Obama, the essence of his “1 out of 2 ain’t bad” punchline is entirely correct. B.O. has embraced all of the worst aspects of Dubya’s administration, and in some respects have doubled-down on them. “Change” never happened, but his mindless minions are still sold on him because he speaks reasonably well when he has a teleprompter in front of him.

    I don’t know that his “mindless minions” are still sold on him. (The Tea Partiers are also mindless minions.) It’s just that the Republican alternatives are even scarier.

    Obama didn´t start a war in Lybia. There is a difference between starting a war and support for a side – where one means you want to spend loads and the other means you can limit to the minimum since its their own case if they want to win or not (so should have prepared more).

    What if they don’t want to be slavey boys to unionized gubment contractors and we have to use illegals?

    Libya “rebellion”, just backing NATO as requested, as in the treaties we’ve signed, but really, none of our business, but they DO have oil, which is why Republicans insisted he “do something” until the minute he did, exactly what he said he’d do. As to Somali pirates taken out- three cheers, but hey, it WAS Obama, so don’t get carried away. BinLaden? What after more than a decade someone finally used the intelligence available to nail him, but let’s not give any credit.


    war sucks, so let’s just send in the folks who insist on supporting it, or spending outrageously on “tools” for it! Hey, we’re killing 43+ people per day here at home with homicides, let’s not say we’re of a “violent nature”, or that it reflects in our “foreign policy”.

    Nato is run by an American general so it is doing America’s will.

    Heck Rall, these aren’t wars, they are just little military incursion, police actions. We get to blow people up and keep the economy moving to rearm without any of that messy commitment stuff.

    Kudos to Mr. Rall! Albeit he’s a Liberal Political Cartoonist, hesnot afraid to critcizre Obama. Rall is1000% Correct, Nothing has Changed Obama has increased the Federal Debt, not reduced it

    At least the Libyans, the Yemens, and the Somalis don’t hate us for our freedom.

    @annamargaret1866^

    It seems to me, as with everything that goes on politically anymore, that perception trumps reality. Obama is MUCH worse than Bush in every respect, and yet you’d vote for him over “the alternative?” You have NO idea who that “alternative” is, and yet you’ve already concluded that your vote is going for one of the worst (if not THE worst) presidents who has ever held the office? THAT, my friend, is being a “mindless minion.”
