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."

"I don’t oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by [former Pentagon policy adviser] Richard Perle and [Deputy Defense Secretary] Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne. What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like [chief Bush political adviser] Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income, to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression".
Obama 2002.
Ok, dufus, let's put this in the real world.
It's after 9/11. You're the president.
What do you do?
Do you do the Clinton response to Al Qaeda bombing us and lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction?
Or, do you surrender to the Islamist jihad?
Or, do you go after them and make them fight you in their own back yard?

If you go fight them in their own back yard, where do you fight them?
Do you do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviet Union?... and leave Saddam Hussein with a rebuilt war machine in your rear?
If you do, why in the hell would you expect any different result than when the Soviets did the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy?
And what do you do about Saddam when you move everything there keeping him under control to Afghanistan, and he hasn't changed his ambition from when he tried to take control of all the oil fields on the Arabian Peninsula?
Now, you're land-locked in Afghanistan and Saddam controls the entire Middle East.

You, and Obama, are ignorant fools.

Bush did it differently than the Soviets. The Soviets lost. Bush won.
Mission Accomplished.

... get over it.

The Obama Breaking Point
October 14, 2012 - 10:34 pm - by Victor Davis Hanson

Calling Dr. Freud

I think a growing number of Americans slowly grasped that with Obama, the best guide to his character is what is sometimes known as psychological projection — or the syndrome in which those unsure of themselves seek to massage their own natural but bothersome impulses by ascribing them to others, almost always in a negative context. The vicarious president who gave us “get in their faces,”“bring a gun to a knife fight,” and “punish our enemies”; ridiculed the Special Olympics; slurred millions of doctors with accusations that they like to amputate for profit; and smeared, as fat cats, the one-percent, corporate jet owners, and Vegas jet-setters (his own generous Wall Street donors) of course also preached about the need for a new bipartisanship and civility. Like a moth to a light bulb, Obama was drawn to swanky golf resorts, Vegas, and vacations on Martha’s Vineyard of the sort he dismissed as the haunts of the one percent. When the president struggles to repress yet another appetite, we can be assured that he will attribute such a character flaw to others.

Look, those fellas whose names on on that bill - all Republican. Passed primarily by Republicans.
The repeal of Glass Steagall was what the Republicans wanted.
This is another "NAfta" argument by the uninformed. Blaming Clinton for signing a Republican action.
Blame your own party for this one.
"real dumb"
You are getting dumber all the time.
Why did not Clinton veto NAFTA? The answer is easy, he knew that democrats in the congress would not support his veto. Do you have a brain in your head? No? Not a surprize.
