why do 'you people' hate Reagan?
Quite the opposite, Reagan should be admired in spite of the Democrats
reneging on their promises to closing the border and not lowering spending.

Hah, LMAO at the poster who said you were lying because you didn't provide a link and then cited the examiner blog.
Obama is dithering on Syria, just like he did on General McChrystal's August 30, 2009 request for a troop surge in Afghanistan. Obama shelved the request for weeks and then was pissed off when the general went to the press revealing Obama's dithering in early October. It took until December 1.2009 for the Ditherer to announce his decision.

Now Obama gets to stall a couple more weeks on Syria and if the military response is ineffective he'll blame the Armed Services and Congress. If Congress votes no he'll be able to retreat from his Red Line (which he really wants to do)and say he had to honor their decision.

How are those Iran/Nuke talks going? Obama dithers while Iran speeds up plutonium production.

That's because we are enjoying watching Obama make a fool of himself while you leftwingers struggle to find a way to support Obama's War on Syria.
Don't you mean McCain's war on Syria? The Republican presidential candidate who referred to the "US failure" to intervene in Syria as 'shameful' and described Obamaís plans for limited air strikes on Syria as ďcosmeticĒ? You people are deranged.

George W. Bush is a phoney. However, he did have the good sense to at least issue a respectful statement:

"There's still a need for every American to help hasten the day when Dr. King's vision is made real in every community - when what truly matters is not the color of a person's skin, but the content of their character."

What did Obama do when the Mullahs murdered people in cold blood?

Leading from behind in Syria, he could have supported the moderate elements when they began the uprising well over a year ago, but chose not to.

Now he has boxed himself into a corner ignoring the first uses of chemical weapons which encouraged the latest use and 1400 killed.

Leading from behind is not a strategy, it's puerile. How did Clinton lobbing a few tomahawks at bin laden do for you?

Alrighty then, I'll be clearer and to the point.

"The 80s' called, they want they foreign policy back"

A quote from one the most (if not THE most) IGNORANT, immature, ghetto gutter, kindergarten sandbox level statements to ever foam out of a political dog debators mouth.

A TOTAL embarrassment moment to MY generation.

A moment that demands an apology, for making listeners cringe at the utter stupidity and mindlessness of.

Is dat yew Mr Reagan? Or were dat Afghanerstan? Or the Berlin airdrop?

The key word is "can". To think there isa one to one ratio between corp tax cuts & price reduction, then you are sadly mistaken.
One of the problems with Fair Tax's argument is that ending corporate taxation leads to equal price reductions. That os beyond stupid.
You claim to own a business. I have no idea what it it nor do I care. However, lets say you sell widgets. If the company down the street starts selling widgets for $5 less than you and all your customers start going there are you going to keep your price the same or lower it?

Not as phoney as Barack Hussein Obama, but he was is a 'Natural Born Citizen'. Something that Obama has yet to prove, with a Birth Certificate that passes muster.

Obama Furious After Vladimir Putin Unfriends Him on Facebook
By Mark Donahue
Obama Furious After Vladimir Putin Unfriends Him on FacebookWASHINGTON Ė The turmoil that was generated between Russia and the United States after President Vladimir Putin granted asylum to Edward Snowden earlier this month escalated even further when President Obama cancelled his private meeting with the Russian president before Septemberís G-20 conference of world economic leaders in St. Petersburg. But the delicate fragments of alliance that remained between the two countries may have been irretrievably shredded in the proverbial fan today after Vladimir Putin unfriended President Obama on his Facebook page.
Sources inside the administration say President Obama learned of the Russian presidentís Facebook coup during his morning White House briefing. Obama became quite upset when he was told the news, but upon learning that Vice President Biden and Vladamir Putin remained Facebook friends the president became enraged, forcing everyone out of the Oval Office before angrily kicking the door closed. Moments later it was discovered President Obama had signed onto his personal Twitter account and unfollowed President Putin.
About an hour later reporters managed to corner Vice President Biden outside a Duncan Donuts after heíd purchased his daily chocolate eclair and Diet Coke. When asked about Putin unfriending the president on Facebook, Biden took a moment to swallow a bite of his eclair before answering.
JoeBiden12072 Obama Furious After Vladimir Putin Unfriends Him on FacebookJOE BIDEN: Thatís a might tasty eclair. Only in America!
(The vice president smiled and winked at reporters)
JOE BIDEN: Now, to your question about President Putin. Politics is a high stakes game of deception, distraction and diversion that few have the ability to master. Thatís why thereís only a handful of folks who attain the level of power that a President Obama or a vice president like myself do. That being said, the depth of understanding involved in comprehending President Putinís Facebook maneuver cannot be easily deciphered, let alone explained in a manner simple enough for the common man to grasp.
REPORTER: Mr. Vice President, did Vladimir Putin hurt President Obamaís feelings?
PRESIDENT BIDEN: Oh, sure. Even the most stoic among us isnít immune to the humiliation of being unfriended on Facebook. Although itís quite easy to forget, President Obama is after all, human. No more special than I am.
REPORTER: President Obama unfollowed President Putin on his Twitter account. Was that out of spite?
JOE BIDEN:(chuckling) Of course it was.
REPORTER: Mr. Vice President, apparently you are still Facebook friends with President Putin. Do you plan to unfriend him to show your allegiance with President Obama?
JOE BIDEN: I can assure you President Obama isnít concerned with my Facebook friends. What happens between President Obama and President Putin is between them. Who am I to take sides?
REPORTER: But according to a high level source inside the White House, the president is very concerned. Why do you think Putin unfriended President Obama but not you?
JOE BIDEN:(Smiling) Oh, gosh, who knows. I can say I heard Mr. Putin is still friends with Jay Z and the Clintons on Facebook. So itís not like Iím a big deal.
LOL

I'm glad you said that because that's the problem. It's the blacks character that we can't stand not the color and it's the America black not all blacks. So if you want us to respect you and treat you as equal change your character!!! And please pull up those pants!!!!!
