O'bama's Libya not working out too well either. I wonder how Egypt is doing?
Tell me why should we be involved with the internal politics of foreign countries?

If you knew anything about our history, you would know that our first government under the Articles of Confederation didn't work out and there were growing pains. Try researching Shay's Rebellion. Democracy takes blood sweat and tears. For countries that have bad autocratic rulers for decades, it usually doesn't work out on the first go.

CIA Director Pledges to Make Benghazi Survivors Available to Talk
One year after the terrorist attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, the survivors may finally begin to talk. I repeat "may".
does it really matter, If they don't say President Obama personally knew of the impending attack, personally ordered Chris Stevens there, personally ordered the insurgents to attack and personally ordered the military to stand down you won't believe it anyway.

now that it looks like we won't be attacking Syria how long do you think it will be before the right wing media starts asking why we didn't attack Syria?
The reich wingnut McCain is already claiming that Obama "should have acted, as other presidents have" by going it alone and a.ttacking Syria without UN or Congressional approval. Strange bunch

Obama is stronger now than ever. A good leader is not arrogant. He must be capable of changing his direction when circumstances change and Obama has proven he is a true leader. He will look like a miracle worker if the Putin plan works. If it fails, he will be praised for leaving no stone unturned toward a peaceful resolution.
Absolutely agree.

Absolutely, but these Neanderthals on here don't get it. But, they will once they realize that all of their efforts to sabotage Obamacare will not work and eventually any kinks will be ironed out and all will be well in the country.
As far as Democracy; it's a hard sell to those countries, look at Russia.

Syria crisis: Obama leans to diplomacy on chemical weapons impasse
Barack Obama has used a televised address to lay the path for a possible diplomatic resolution to the impasse over Syria, pledging to work directly with Russia to force the Assad regime to give up its chemical weapons but insisting military strikes remain a possibility.
The US president said that although he had suspended a congressional vote to authorise force against Syria, he had ordered the military to "maintain their current posture to keep the pressure on Assad and to be in a position to respond if diplomacy fails".
Marble mouthed O'bama in his 16-minute address, was at odds with himself. He spent the first 12 minutes arguing for the merits of striking Syria and then delivered the news that he was putting military action on hold. WTH. O'bama is a clown. You didn't see the same speech I did, did you?

No its called FREEDOM OF SPEECH.
The true test of Freedom of Speech is not when you allow those with whom you agree with to speak, but when you allow those who hate and abhor their message that same freedom.
I know its a difficult concept for you to understand, and I doubt you will.
OF course, that is why they would not issue a permit to the 2 million AMERICAN Patriots who wanted to ride their motorcycles in the same Washington, DC. WELL--the AMERICAN Patriots are riding through muzzieville anyway.

So in other words you stated that the O'bama administration, by not allowing a permit, for Patriots is failing the test. Got it!

90% of the people were not wooed by O'bama. One thing for sure O'bama finally united the American people against O'bama himself and O'bama 'cRazY tAlK!

Of course Benghazi comes to mind. The great O'bama hesitated and left our people to die. How many hours did they wait to die because O'bama was reluctant to take ANY action? Good point on "Reluctant O'bama". "Impotent O'bama". "Unable to make a decision O'bama".

Good stuff! I liked this part! Killer IQ, indeed!!
The most infamous example was Vogue's profile of Asma al-Assad, which described Syria's first lady as "a thin, long-limbed beauty with a trained analytic mind ...[with] a killer IQ

On the 12th anniversary of 9-11 and the first anniversary of the treachery at Benghazi, time to pause and remember that the principal threat to the US is radical Islam, which must be opposed wherever it exists.

So, you are claiming everything was great until September 16, 2008.
Or do you think that is when everybody found out how serious it was?
The market had been falling but it was the news of the impending financial collapse that caused the nose dive.
It took time to get it to that the point of near collapse. You have failed to show a single Democrat action since Jan of 2007 that caused it.
Have you ever had a basic economics class?
The market crashed twice within a couple of weeks. The first crash was when it could not be ignored any longer that the interwoven investments were tied to worthless traunches comprised of failed CRA mortgages.
The second crash a couple of weeks later happened when the Democrat-controlled House refused to pass a bill to prop the failing banks up.
Both crashes happened in September, right after both conventions ended and the campaigning began.
It wasn't until after the election that the Democrats passed virtually the same bill they had rejected during the election campaign.
You really need to go get your money back from whatever institution pretended to educate you.
