The Folly of a Syrian War

Like the Iraq War, a U.S. war in Syria would be unauthorized and illegal under international law, and America would have even fewer allies than it had in Iraq. Like Iraq, the costs and duration of a Syrian war have been minimized to make it appear to be a quick, easy, and cheap intervention. Unlike Iraq, there wouldn’t even be the pretense that the U.S. was acting to eliminate a potential threat to our security. Instead, the U.S. would be fighting solely for the purpose of overthrowing another government. While the Iraq War was mostly limited to that country, U.S. intervention in Syria would draw us directly into a proxy war with Assad’s patrons that would likely not remain confined to Syria. Finally, a Syrian war would be waged with the knowledge of all the things that went so horribly wrong in Iraq, which makes the impulse to intervene in Syria both inexcusable and inexplicable.

Calling a black man "boy" is a racial slur.
If you want to think of the President as not being grown up, then use other terms such as "child".
But Eed uses it not as a slur, nooooooo wink wink. Racist f*ck Eed.
"real dumb"
No slurs intended.
I call president nobama a boy because he has proven he is not up to mans job, I call you a boy because using your logic I believe you are black. I do not know are care if you are black, white, green or pink, I do know that you are a troll, an ignoramus with out a thought of your own.

You get dumber with every post. Please point out a law that Romney broke. You can not, all you have is a big ignorant mouth, a mouth that is derided by all.

The conversation was about Romney's plan for taxing profits made overseas from his campaign. Try to keep up.

If you can't, maybe some of that free healthcare that you mooch off the government can help you.

In the case of the IRS “scandal,” when the news broke, Obama swiftly denounced the agency’s conduct as “outrageous,” and Democrats vowed to fully investigate. Assuming there is no further conspiracy, this issue may harm Obama in the short-term but seems unlikely to effect a broad-based shift in attitudes toward government power other than to intensify feelings among conservatives who already detest the president and the IRS. As the “Tea Party” brand remains extremely unpopular, progressives and independents will generate little sympathy for the self-described “Tea Party” and “Patriot” groups that were targeted.

the IRS scandal is a FOX bust before it even gets out the door.

because you see...how many people watch FOX? not that many. so the attitude of the majority will be....'It was just the Tea Party.'

By stark contrast, Monday’s revelation that the Justice Department seized two months’ worth of phone records from the Associated Press is a veritable “game-changer”—a full-blown scandal in every sense of the word. DOJ officials obtained these highly sensitive records in secret, preventing the AP from seeking judicial review; sources for as many as 100 reporters may have been compromised. Pulitzer Prize winners Matt Apuzzo and Adam Goldman, whose investigative journalism has been indispensable, were among the targets.

The gravity of this “massive and unprecedented intrusion,” as the AP described it, cannot be overstated. Attorney General Eric Holder has claimed that his department carried out the action pursuant to a criminal investigation into a national-security leak that “put the American people at risk,” creating a situation that “required aggressive action” to remedy.

A substantial set of Americans, young people especially, has grown deeply cynical of state officials’ rote invocation of ill-defined “threats” to justify abridging core civil liberties. Ironically, this scandal is by far the most compelling example of what “a growing and activist government” might wreak—yet it also appears to be the scandal in which the GOP has the least interest. It most threatens Obama precisely because it is not tainted by partisan grandstanding. It is a scandal on its face and required no trumpeting from congressional zealots in order to enter the mainstream discourse.

But since the 2010 midterm elections, Republicans have demonstrated a remarkable inability to capitalize on Obama’s many vulnerabilities. Notwithstanding pumped-up “narratives” about the administration’s imminent downfall, there is little reason to expect much will change.

Mass killings by Democrats or Chicago ghetto style killings by your "culture of violence" are not by someone clinging to their guns and religion or angry old white men you idiot.

Why is it that none of the disturbed and hate-filled liberals, who take or steal guns, then go and kill movie-goers, children in schools, and Bill Ayers types bomb public places has never been identified as a conservative, independent or a NRA member?

I guess you prefer that Louis Farrahkan tells his Muslim followers at the Nation of Islam that Obama is the "Messiah." Your obsession with Conservatives is amusing you fool. YET you will let democrats kill the planet with stupid and ghetto ignorance, so all will suffer. Why do you hate intelligence?

It's official: The Cleveland kidnapper is a registered Democrat.

This answers the question, which side actually 'wants women barefoot, illiterate, and pregnant'.

In today's culture of violence, the identity of a perpetrator is a political issue, especially when a crime is committed by a deranged liberal. According to the Daily News, "What the neighbors saw was terrifying and dehumanizing: Naked women on dog leashes, crawling in the dirt in Ariel Castros backyard a deranged liberal. A lady clutching an infant and pounding on a window for help."

When a real act of war on women is perpetrated by a deranged democrat, in the manner that even the most zealous democrat strategist couldn't have dreamed up in their worst nightmares -- involving abduction, imprisonment, rape, torture, malnutrition, beatings while pregnant, and killing babies -- then only do democrats think the party affiliation is not relevant.

We still know nothing. The president knows nothing. And Hillary knows nothing.
