Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

When do the Democrat cuts to Medicare start?
2013. But it's $716 Billion "cuts" to Insurance companies. Also the "cuts" are on future spending, not actual money taken out over a 10 year period.
But you Repubs go ahead and twist all that truth into a lie about it.

Pres oBama, lectures from nutjobs, and keeping America white...

"...highly controversial Farrakhan accused Republicans of having “overt” racist motives in their opposition to Obama, the country’s first black president. He attacked a political process that he says is controlled by monied interests and wants “to keep America white.”

When is Obama going to stop hurting the job prospects of recent college graduates?
As soon as all the millionaire and billionaire CEOs bring back the factories to America. The "job" creators shipped them all while they were paying the lowest tax rates in US history. So much for the Repub talking point about give the rich tax breaks and they'll create jobs. Well, forget that last sentence they did create jobs. Over 5.5 million in China.

You forgot to answer the post. Here it is again:
"He wanted a unified, independent Vietnam."
... and that's why he asked the Soviet Union to petition the UN to separate Vietnam into two separate countries. Haw haw haw.
The French would not endorse him as the supreme leader of Vietnam. Thus, he started a war with the French after he went to Paris and asked them to return to Vietnam, and asked the Soveit Union to help. The Soviet Union saw an opportunity to expand their influence during the Cold War. When Ho Chi Minh asked the Soviet Union to help him in the war he started against the French after he asked the French to come back to Vietnam, he condemned Vietnam to being a candidate location for the proxy wars that became the favorite Soviet Union strategy during the Cold War. Vietnam was just one of several proxy wars during the Cold War the Soveit Union started.
Had the French endorsed Ho Chi Minh as supreme leader of Vietnam, he would have loved the French. However, it was the French that started the elections in Vietnam. There hasn't been an election in Vietnam since Ho Chi Minh took control. There has never been an election for any office in Vietnam in any territory controlled by Ho Chi Minh.... ever.
How could the United States have avoided involvement in Vietnam?
If the strategy of the United States would have been to run away from anywhere the communists appeared, then we could have avoided being involved in Vietnam. Our strategy during the Cold War was not to run away.
"When the US declared him an enemy, he went to the only other source for help, the Communists."
You really are ignorant here.
Ho Chi Minh didn't become significant to the United States until he invited the Soviet Union to join him and help conquer Vietnam. As the Soviet Union's involvement increased, so did our involvement.
By the way, the communists used Soviet weapons at the battle of Dien Bien Phu, idiot. And that was before the Soviet Union petitioned the UN to divide Vietnam into a communist North and a democratic South. The US involvement wasn't significant until after North and South Vietnam were created, and the Soviet Union was massively supporting communist invasions of South Vietnam.
So, now, we have the parallel to the previous proxy war the Soviet Union started: Korea. The Korean War began exactly in the same way as Vietnam. The Soviet Union petitioned the UN to divide the country, the UN accepted the proposal, and the communists immediately invaded the other country.
You've been indoctrinated with the lies the Democrats invented about Vietnam to cover up the fact that they joined the enemy during the Cold War and sabotaged the United States.
Yup. We still call that treason.
1)You said Ho Chi Mihn spend WWII in France. That was an obvious lie & indicator that you really don't know sh*t about it.

2) Second, you claim we had no idea who he was until he brought the Soviets in? We knew whop he was rm his work in Vietnam fighting the Japanese. And Soviets? Really?

Yep 658,000 dead soldiers weren't enough & 17 years was not long enough. Next,you'll tell us how Nixon won that war.

You are calling the MET office liars. The folks who started the Global Warming issue, not me, are the ones who are showing the data.

Your data is outdated and you would have known this if you read the article-

"This stands in sharp contrast to the release of the previous figures six months ago, which went only to the end of 2010 – a very warm year.

Ending the data then means it is possible to show a slight warming trend since 1997, but 2011 and the first eight months of 2012 were much cooler, and thus this trend is erased."

What they did was not necessarily illegal. That's why the new legislation. You know the stuff Republicans want to repeal.

Though cuts is closer to the truth ;)
