Once more, we see the magnitude of the tragedy of Iraq because the decision on Syria is so colored by the fact that an American president and vice president took us to war in the Middle East on false pretenses and juiced up intelligence, dragging the country into an emotionally and financially exhausting decade of war and an identity crisis about our role in the world.
W. was so black and white, as he mischaracterized and miscalculated, that he ended up driving America into a gray haze, where we’re unsure if our old role as John Wayne taking on the global bad guys is even right.
We now actually have a president who understands the difference between Sunnis and Shiites. But our previous gigantic misreadings of the Middle East, and the treacherous job of fathoming which sides to support in the Arab uprisings — are the rebels in these countries the good guys or Al Qaeda sympathizers?— have left us literally gun shy.

On that note, thirty one dead in Iraq overnight including 18 members of a Shiite family. The Shiite's are taking a pounding__I wonder how long it will take Iran to step into that fray.

He needs to get over it already, and act like a grown up, rather than a petulant kid for a change. That kind o behavior send the WRONG "message" to the rest of the kids in the administration.

NATO ally Cameron did.

Why this potus think he any more speshull than any of the rest of them?

As these three scandals show, progressivism is a totalitarian ideology that seeks more and more power in order to institutionalize its dangerous ideas about human nature, the good life, and justice, and that considers any end advancing those ideas to be justified. Which brings us to the important questions––Will the voters see that these scandals are the signs of those failed ideas and reverse our descent into big government’s “soft despotism”? Or will they just shrug them off as politics as usual?

The majority shrugged off the descent into big government's "soft despotism".
Unless too many in the real majority didn't want to vote for a Mormon.
I hope.
Carol you can cite all of the right wing whack job sites you want but I read this particular one and it's just a rehash of the same bull crap.
The majority didn't vote against Romney because he was a Mormon stupid, they rejected him because he's a smug sociopath who couldn't relate to middleclass voters and their needs.

You really need to work on your reading and comprehension of the written English language.
All Suni terrorists are Wahhabist. Al Qaeda is Wahhabist. The Muslim Brotherhood is Wahhabist. Name any muslim terrorist group not promoting Sharia Law.
It seems the muslims in Egypt disagree with you. It seems UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon disagrees with you. It appears the muslims opposing Wahhabism have gotten some traction, as evidenced by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon saying this issue should be decided by the permenant members of the Security Council. That means the anti-Muslim Brotherhood and anti-Al Qaeda muslims have some support in the UN.
The only elements that support Obama are Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. No other country in the world supports Obama.

Rand Paul is one of the few making any sense on Syria.
Rand Paul never makes sense. Heck, he campaigned in 2010 in favor of the War on Terror.

Rand Paul said he would like to see a repeal of the Americans With Disabilities Act because....it is unfair to businesses.

Rand Paul said the Civil Rights Act of 1964 should never have been passed because...it is unfair to business.

Rand Paul chastised President Obama for criticizing BP over it's handling of the oil spill because....it was "anti-business".

He's just plain crazy.

Wrong once again. George Bush is still rated as the worst president ever.
How conveniently you people like to close the door on Bush as of January, 2009. Ignoring the FACT that the effects of the Bush policies rolled over into the Obama administration. The only thing holding the recovery back is the dysfunction of Congress, lead by Republican opposition whose political strategy from the very beginning of Obama's presidency has been economic calamity.
It's conservative culture.
Opinions are like assholes... Everybody has one... Yours is just bigger... You with A stupid argument heavily influenced by ignorance and vast tracts of deranged grey matter...

Romney Adviser: GOP Didn’t Oppose ‘Red Line,’ So Can’t Complain Now
"And by the way, when the president did draw it, it's not like congressional Republicans were opposed to it," Senor continued. "No congressional Republican was saying,'Don't draw that red line.' They were never criticizing President Obama for doing too much. They were criticizing him for doing too little. So now he wants to do something."

So, you think we should get Aemricans killed so Obama can help Al Qaeda get chemical weapons and the Muslim Brotherhood can have a country to rule after they were tossed out on their Wahhabist asses in Egypt, right?

Russia Warns U.S. Over Syria, Says Obama Like Bush

“All of this makes one recall the events that happened 10 years ago, when, using false information about Iraqis having weapons of mass destruction, the U.S. bypassed the United Nations and started a scheme whose consequences are well known to everyone.”

http://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrapoza/2013/08...

anyone who thinks that the high disapproval of going into Syria is all about, you know, Obama, had to have voted for Bush.

What does the Constitution have to say about that?
