I don't think any of us are prepared for what could be the inevitable.
Maybe it was inevitable with or without Obama. But I have to think otherwise. Obamacare made what could have been a slight delay in 2008 the train skipping the track altogether.
Precious time to focus solely on the economy, the creation of jobs and providing incentives for hiring was lost to Obama and Democrats chasing their tails - time that can never be recovered.

So, being anti Vietnam war means you support Ho Chi Minh?
Wow, you're a GD idiot.
So you think we should be at war with China? No? Then you are a GD communist supporting POS.
I know about Bill Ayers because I bothered to learn the truth. And the truth is not found on spammed right whiner e-mails.
At least you didn't use the "anti-war" lie.
If you were against the proxy war in Vietnam, you were either ignorant or you supported Ho Chi Minh.
So, which was it?
Was William Ayers one of the ignorant dupes running around the country? Or, did William Ayers support the person who became statistically the worst mass murderer in the history of civilization?

Please say William Ayers is just an ignorant dupe....

Many Americans initially supported the Vietnam War, but later turned against it when it became apparent that LBJ was playing politics with US soldiers' lives and had no desire for victory.

Others, like Ayers, were Communist supporters of Ho Chi Minh.

Obama deserves to be ripped for his unmitigated arrogance.

But, no surprise the US MSM wants to protect Obama from the harsh reality of the consequences.

I frequently read foreign news sources. They have much more news than US sources.

That's a ridiculous statement. There are more Democrats on Capital Hill among the top ten wealthiest than Republicans.

Wonder who among those wealthiest donated more of their own money to charity.

John, I agree.
Nobody, well, no sane person, favors war. LBJ was playing politics, but trying to save his own ass in the Democratic Party. I think he was the last "replacement" after the communists in the Democratic Party got hammered with the Alger Hiss conviction. I think it took them 20 years to recover and regain control of the Democratic Party, which brings us to 1968. Johnson backed out because he was told to do so. They weren't going to win militarily, and in 1968 they just had two Tet offensives in a row hammered to hell with no gains, so they had to have a Republican president to blame the war on, and sabotage it from Congress.

If you look at the events in the world at the time, from the start of the Cold War to the end the US had to constantly make a decision whether it would maintain the strategy of containment, or change the strategy to something like run away every time the communists appeared in any country. When the communist appeared, their intent was to take over that country. If we chose to run away everywhere, we would have never survived the Cold War.

If that proxy war had not happened in Vietnam, there would just be some other place where it was going to happen. The proxy war was the strategy the Soviet Union settled on to fight the Cold War. The only way to avoid these proxy wars was to run away from everywhere the communists appeared. You can't negotiate with communists. It's all or nothing to them.

Obamacare is more apt to turn health care into a third world system rather than help the poor.

Republicans tried to lower the costs of health care. The pink elephant everyone's ignoring.
