In the game of "fundamental change" versus the checks and balances of
the Constitution, it seems the Founders still have the upper hand.
Most conservatives will support Russia than the United States. What happened to
your "with us our against us" or "love it or leave it".
President Obama got Putin to give him everything he wanted and is track to
realize his goal in Syria (eliminating their use of chemical weapons) without
firing a shot. Why are conservatives so intent on turning that into a
failure?Oh, that's right. They'd have to admit he was
successful. Can't have that.
@one voteYou are misreading the situation. Most conservatives
support the United States more than they support an American president whose
objective is to diminish the United States.
One Vote. When GWB was president, why didn't you support and praise him?KJB1. Thousands of innocent Syrians are still dying and do you honestly
believe Assad will turn over his chemical weapons to Putin, who probably sold
them to him in the first place? Obama looks weak and retreating and Iran, N.
Korea and the Muslin Brotherhood are laughing today. Putin won big time and
America is weaker and getting jeered by the world!
Obama's "handling" of Syria is just one more proof that he is not
qualified to be President. Bluster is no replacement for leadership. He
blusters about everything and does nothing. It's clear that when many of
us agree with Putin, that we have a President who is not qualified to be in
office. He just does not understand his duties and he is not willing to learn.
That is a recipe for failure. At least he is succeeding in being a failure.
When history is written, Obama's name will be synonymous for
KJB1 what are you talking about? Not Syria. Putin got what HE wanted, which
was an unchanged government and leader in Syria. Assad will still be there,
still being one of Putins best allies in the mid-east. Assad will also go on
killing at will if he wants to. Just not with chemical weapons. You at least
understand that none of this attacking Syria talk would have happend at all if
Obama had not blustered off the cuff with that "red line" talk. All
that has happened since then is a scramble to save face for Obama. What no one
believes though is that this was strength displayed by our President and our
country. Most everyone both foreign and domestic think that we looked weak and
Easy prediction when the president has already taken a stand and publicly stated
he won't negotiate on anything on the budget or debt.
Syria gives up its WMD's??The U.N. has proved itself more than
incompetent at enforcing ANYTHING, much less munitions that could fit in a car
trunk.U.S. citizens can pretend he'll give them up as long as
they want, but it WON'T happen! He may turn over "some", limited
amounts but he could always keep a few in his bedroom drawers. None the
wiser.Also, Hezbullah, and Hamas are good candidates to carry them around
for awhile. For safekeeping, of course.
"But conservatives sense opportunity in a weakened president and a deeply
unpopular law (Obama care)". I am getting more and more annoyed at these
naysayers. A slight majority of Americans feel that Obamacare will increase
healthcare costs despite facts indicating otherwise, including my own
experience. Where I work (a company with less than 100 employees) r the premiums
were projected to go up 20 percent for 2014. We have just secured a contract,
providing the same coverage) reflecting only a one percent increase. This is
the second year in a row our premiums have remained stable.
I have no doubt in my mind that Barack Obama will meet with members of both
parties and talk common sense solutions for the upcoming budget. Yes I know
Barack will listen and respect the opinions and suggestions given to him
especially regarding the facts about Obamacare and it's impact on jobs and
exploding costs. I have full confidence that Barack will handle the upcoming
budget talks with the same degree of thoughtful and skillful leadership that he
exhibited during the Syrian crisis and the Libyan embassy tragedy a year
earlier. The America people have full confidence in their president to continue
to be the great leader that he is always putting the priorities of the country
above his own political ambitions. If you believe all this I have some swamp
