Barack Obama, our next President

I have to note you do not comment on the red line in the sand that president nobama made. Not a dime's worth of arms should be sent to the area and not a single one of the detainees should be released. Nothing America does is going to change the behavour, they will continue to do what they have done for centuries, murder and maim, children and women at the top of their list.

There must be a lot of upset of US in manufacturing the very noisy outcry of attracting to look for International attention about naming the Snowden case.
As US keeps on pressing Snowden to make the world to see if US is being agitated by Russia and disagreement from others on many matters in UN or not, many local newspapers report more on Snowden story than the robbers and traffic accidents, US must be being ignored by the world on Syria, so it goes about expressing its sadness on Snowden for extradition in order to seek the sorrow to be mended.
Wow, global people do not scratch or shake heads, and would wipe the lips after a dinner, by pondering what big attention is that all about,as Snowden matters are shuffled to people's in-between slots of work time to puzzle if they would be feeling better drinking some glasses of wine or beer, but then they come to the gossiping and wondering if US would charge people picking the nose too?
Just who needs a relationship with sad people about Snowden, as they say Russia would give up Snowden for a relation?
Just how many defectors from Russia, China and other countries have gone to US to leak their secrecy, and would they seek extradition too?
There is the perspective of different beliefs in the system of justice everywhere, as US judges are more political than watching justice, or would rather bring some gun to polish around or sleep around of the clock. What makes one think US has better justice than other countries?
It is too naive to believe people want the model of Justice from US, unless there are blueprints for B-1 bombers, guidance system and laser technology , by which Bush would be happy to give to them during his time.
Since Obama visited Britain, someone from UK not knowing much, called him prime minister from seeing him buying cigarettes, he might as well want to invite Obama to be his PM as he likes British smoke better when his real PM Cameron does not smoke.
But don't forget, hey, you the British, why don'[t you give Obama smoke instead, and ask what he is going to do about Assange in the Ecuador embassy in Britain?
That so many people defect to countries and vice versa when International people have lots of differences in views is just the fact of reality, why does US give very loud voices about Snowden and Assange?
There is some kind of abnormality in this among so many defectors and people seeking sanctuary and accommodation anywhere, while US wants to make it look more peculiar, needs a lot of attention only because it calls the label of traitors (Calling Snowden a traitor means Snowden is a political refugee). But, or, is it that other countries are not calling theirs as traitors to defect to US which has tendency to violate the International laws, that it would press others to break their laws too by giving them extradition?
Does US want to push others to extradite to break laws, and simultaneously want a relationship?
Well then, if a political science professor can't answer you the question, why don't you ask the vendor at the hot-dog stand since so many customers of his keep asking the same question when US pushes, on extradition, as this is the International matter, not just US's, and so are Syria and others?
Even the vendor would say US is accustomed to think nothing else that matters as the case of Iraq war, as if it thinks it is only it (the major force and not from much anyone else) on the planet, with none of many others around.
Where are you people of the world heading in the direction of the globe, in any way, if there is only one consent with no International differences and rules of law and justice?

To what extent do we EVER know the whole story?
We don't. But making a stab at fixing perceived wrongs is both a right and an obligation. How often do people in power use the "State Secrets" BS on the citizens who ask questions? Often. VERY often.
With this administration, arguably more than ever.
Only a FOX lemming would infer that the Obama administration has used the "State Secrets" BS more than the Bush/Cheney administration. And only an absolute moron wouldn't recognize the necessity for the State to keep some of their tactics from the public. This is just another example of your habitual whining.

What else do we expect them to say? "Uhhhh, yeah. Well, we spent all this time spying on Americans and well ... we got nuthin'."
Nevertheless, somehow the Boston bombers, the underwear bomber, Maj. Nidal, and the Time's Square bomber all stayed off their radar?
All it means is that no system is foolproof. What is accomplished by the general public being privy to all national security programs? Our enemies or terror groups are being educated in our weak points. Nidal was suspect; however, do we arrest every person who is acting weird ? He was a US citizen in the military.
The Boston bombers story is intriguing and I'm not convinced that the Russians actually warned anyone; perhaps they were sent on their mission by the Russians, and furthermore may be connected to the Syria debacle. Anyone who trusts Putin and the Ruusians is insane.

One more time you prove your self to be full of shit. Point out a single post where I have ignored or condoned violence. Just one. You must have one other wise you would not open your mouth and spew lies.
Ignore violence? Again you lie. I speak out often against abortion/murder, the taking of the life of innocents a practice you whole heartedely support. I am anti death penalty, I would much prefer those sentenced rot for 30 - 40 years in solitary confinement. Of course with a TV, but a TV with just two channels available, the weather channel so he/she will know how warm it is in his/her un air conditioned cell and Fox News.

You act like the poor don't pay taxes. Seems to me the real crybabies are those who don't want to lose their tax loopholes or have their dividends taxed like everyone else's income.
Fact: Prior to the Bush tax cuts in 2003, dividends were taxed at a higher rate than normal income and, guess what....we were FAR better off. Too bad we can't just rewind the clock and get rid of the Bush administration altogether.
Rather too bad we couldn't get rid of Clinton. I guess uneducated liberals, like yourself, forget that the stock market crashed in 1999 and 2000 and people lost half of their savings.
Dec. 2000. For weeks / months the world has been treated to one guess after another as to what great things Bill Clinton would do before he left office so that someone would remember him for something ....
other than sexual perversion and of course: Monica

And last week the world finally saw what the legacy of Bill Clinton
and Liberalism will be: An Epic stock market crash. In a mere 9 months the NASDAQ has lost 50 percent of its value.....
a record fall since the country was formed.

Granted that the vast majority -- made totally ignorant as another
part of the Clinton legacy -- Total Destruction of the Education
system for the insane concept of equality -- are still in total self denial that they made bad choices in choosing stocks and are still completely convinced that if they only do as bubblevision instructed: buy and hold forever they will be wealthy.....while of course in the real world instead of being millionaires they are facing poverty / loss of homes / stress beyond belief.

The reason President Bush lowered the capital gains is because he needed to save some of these people, he had to find a way to get people to invest back in the market to save the 401K's that Clinton had also said everyone should invest--which included labor unions, big companies, little companies, state governments and individuals. No one wanted to invest in America because of Bill Clinton. Frankly it is amazing that GW Bush held this country together as long he did after the Clinton. But hey, Clinton sold more weapons to other countries (on both sides) than any president in history. Clinton sold out the American people in more ways than one.
