Barack Obama, our next President

Need to go to the video to see if Putin flipped the bird to Obama while they were meeting.
It would be interesting to see Putin's face as he is walking away.

Obama’s Syria policy is full of contradictions
When asked the U.S. objective in Syria, some proponents of intervention say it is to end that country’s humanitarian nightmare. But in the short term, arming one side will increase the violence and bloodshed. That’s fine if it serves our real objective, which is the ouster of the Assad regime, a nasty and evil dictatorship. But that is a negative objective. The lesson of Iraq is that defeating Saddam Hussein — whose regime was perhaps even worse than Bashar al-Assad’s — was only a stepping stone to an outcome.

The impulsive ‘martyr’

Our goal for Syria is a democratic country where all sects can live in peace. Achieving that would require a lot more than the defeat of Assad; it would require an occupation of sorts to ensure the creation of a suitable political system. We attempted just that in Iraq and, despite a massive, decade-long effort that cost trillions of dollars and thousands of lives, Iraq today cannot be described as either genuinely democratic or multiethnic.(The international intervention in the Balkans was also followed by a decades-long occupation, which continues to this day in Bosnia.) Put another way, we want an outcome in Syria that is even more ambitious than the one in Iraq — yet we intend to achieve it through a “no-fly” zone.

OBAMA does the same as BUSH but HIS SUPPORTERS SAY NO

Obama is going after those that leak classified Information. It is a crime.
I guess you want our secrets published on line.
Leaking a classified military operation putting soldiers at risk. Yep Whatever is for it.
Leaking how we track potential terrorists & break up plots, yep Whatever is for it.
Maybe you need to check your assumptions. When a government gets so powerful and has so many "enemies" that it feels compelled and justified in spying on, imprisoning, and assassinating its own citizens and targeting those who would hold them accountable then maybe that government's legitimacy should be called into question.

At least that's what some of those old documents in the National Archive say.

Very true. Putin knows exactly what he is doing and has the KGB background to be ruthless.

Galt would also like Snowden to return if that would result in an open discussion of Obama's NSA snooping.
It would be nice if Edward Snowden returned , but he's looking more like a glamor hound like Julien Assange( Assange is advising Snowden on what country that he should request asylum.) In the meantime, President Obama is going forward on an open public discussion of the NSA secrecy revelations. Obama has met with the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Watchdog Committee(It's the same committee that republicans have tried to block by refusing to confirm appointments to it)

We learned all we needed to know about Obama when he first ran for public office. Nothing's changed except the scale of his corruption and the scope of his agenda.
Most presidents, if not all, have a record of past accomplishments in past leadership positions.

Just wish a few liberals on here would point out some of Obama's accomplishments as an Illinois Senator in one of the most politically corrupt cities in the country - and then as a junior Senator in the U.S. Congress where he won unopposed because of a nasty divorce scandal that somehow "leaked" about his opponent...like his other two opponents running for the Illinois Senate where he also ran unopposed and winning by a slim majority.

Most people don't know that. But we certainly knew enough in 2008 and 2012 that should have never gotten him on the ticket - much less win the presidency.

Real Dave trying to attack people who point out this admin's treatment of reporters and whistle blowers calling them traitors is a mindless Progressive talking point that will divide America.
That talk is coming from Republican quarters as well. Are they now "progressive" too? I've been saying so all along but its neat to get one of y'all to admit it.

Now Jean from Queens has proven herself to be totally bananas. The political conditions in Russia are getting worse under Putin as witnessed by the his resort to greater force and oppression of all dissent.
You're not a Russian expert. "It is not an easy thing to quantify, much less to prove. But among intellectuals and advocates of a democratic Russia in the Western mode, a gnawing concern is arising that the relative freedom from state surveillance and restriction that citizens have relished in the last decade may be drawing to a close.

Supplanting it is a resurgent government obsession with internal security and threats from abroad -- a phenomenon that they say has set off a limited but growing crackdown on supposed challenges to the state."

After 2014 and Obama leaves there will be nothing to hold these lunatics together. DBWriter is a great example, he considers Lindsey Graham a Democrat even though Graham has been beating DB's Benghazi drum louder than him.
before it's all over, he'll have to call every republican in congress a democrat.

if they want to be reelected, sooner or later they'll have start worrying about what's best for the country rather than the radical agenda of the Tea Party. and we know how the nutjobs are about hating what's best for America.
