Follow existing policies (once they friggin' learn them anyway)...including those surrounding troops abroad etc...INCLUDING the
WAR POWERS ACT (no matter what the bobblehead spooge lapping media sayz)-as per documentation in the LOC itself.

The Tea Party isn't going anywhere—and the GOP had better brace itself."For a movement that’s helped to reshape the Republican Party—and by extension, reshape American politics—we know shockingly little about the people who make up the Tea Party. While some in the GOP once hoped to co-opt the movement, it’s increasingly unclear which group—the Tea Party or establishment Republicans—is running the show. Politicians have largely relied on conjecture and assumption to determine the positions and priorities of Tea Party activists.
Until now. The results of the first-ever political science survey of Tea Party activists show that the constituency isn’t going away any time soon—and Republicans hoping the activists will begin to moderate their stances should prepare for disappointment.

So, um, lemme see what I can do here... if, as is apparently true, successive republican administrations have, through a policy of Machiavellian "preemption" and "compassionate conservatism" created an economic system based in large part of the war industry and its close ally, the oil industry, then it is reasonable to assume that cuts to the war and energy industries will "hurt" the "economy." It's perfect! The "economy" is now hopelessly entwined with the death vendors, so we need to find or start additional pointless conflicts and potential conflicts to keep the war industry busy so the "economy" won't falter. wouldn't want a "weak" economic recovery now would we? Hahahahahahahahah

He's not a "failure" exactly, he's a man of "principle." Unfortunately, his principles are based on being a failure. And then god healed his brain, of course.

It's beyond even trying to imagine Al Gore standing at Ground Zero with a bullhorn telling the New York firefighters and policemen "I can't hear you but whoever did this will be hearing from all of us soon!"

I can't even imagine what he WOULD be doing - except maybe creating even more fear and hysteria or hiding under his desk and hoping it would all just go away.

Maybe you can - or Lily or Realtime can - but I can't.

Obama looked ridiculous being the only presidential candidate on that stage with his hands behind his back during the playing of the National Anthem.

Doesn't matter if he was born in Hawaii or Kenya.

I don't blame anyone for taking options not to get drafted in vietnam war times.
I am merely stating the facts. Carol said Bush was better prepared to react to 9-11 than Gore. Heck, Gore spent time in Vietnam. He was seen war.
Gore was a photo journalist with an engineering battalion, he has been honest about his "nothing special" Vietnam service although many of the rightwing blogs have created their own versions of his service.

Had Gore been appointed to the oval office instead of Shrub it's safe to say that Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and the tagalong crew of neocons wouldn't have been anywhere near positions of authority and that even if the 9/11 attacks came off successfully that the US would not have invaded Iraq.

Wonder where Syria picked up so many chemical weapons?

Let 'em blow themselves up...since we know how you Bush haters despise humanitarian assistance.

Thuggary 101, thug side A flavo-flavo-greased weaponary palm today...weaponary greased palm side B tomorrow? See thug side A turn heads 90 degrees and jump over to thug side B in blinks of an eye.

Reality.

Drop food/medical supplies and call it aid-and that's all the help thug A OR B side are gonna get.

It's THEIR failed statehood problems-NOT ours.

The republican view of the world is simply this: the world is simple. In a world this simple there is only black and white, (black is bad,) up and down, right and left. By opening your mind to a question, any question, is to suggest a flaw in the republican worldview, which, as we're already determined, is simple. There is no such thing as discussion, there is only dictation.
