<quoted text> So, in other words, Barack Hussein Obama never ever volunteered to serve in his nation's military service, and yet, felt smug enough to assume the position of Commander-in-Chief.
Soo you aren't smart enough to see the difference between when your country needs you and when they don't? No wonder you baggers wallow in ignorance daily. There have been a lot of presidents that haven't served.

Dick and Liz Cheney's "The Collapsing Obama Doctrine" (op-ed, June 18) conveniently overlooks that it was President George W. Bush who, on Dec. 14, 2008, signed with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) calling, in Article 24.1, for the withdrawal of all U.S. forces—not just combat forces—from Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011. Anyone who doubts it might consult on the White House website an "In Focus" release of Jan. 15, 2009 or a Congressional Research Service analysis of this SOFA by R. Chuck Mason, July 13, 2009.
If the assumption was that the newly elected President Obama should negotiate a SOFA calling for a residual U.S. force in Iraq large enough to prevent the current mayhem, then why did President Bush agree to a complete withdrawal of all U.S. forces by the end of 2011 in a SOFA that he must have known would be a major road block in negotiating a follow-on SOFA for a sizeable residual U.S. force in Iraq?
Ironically, it was none other than Mr. Cheney who, in a 1994 interview on C-Span, defended the decision by President George Herbert Walker Bush at the end of the first Gulf war not to push on to Baghdad because, Mr. Cheney then explained, it would ultimately have led to precisely the sectarian violence and ultimate splintering of Iraq we now witness. That interview is widely available on YouTube.
If only Mr. Cheney in 2002 had remembered the dicta of Mr. Cheney in 1994.

But the theory that turned Al Qaeda into a regional monster didn’t come from Dick Cheney. It came from Obama’s Presidential Study Directive 11 which helped pave the way for the Arab Spring. The definitive speech that opened the gates of hell wasn’t Bush’s speech on Iraq, it was Obama’s Cairo speech.

Only 1000 killed in Iraq during the 17 days from June 5 to June 22. That's not very many more than are killed routinely in that sectarian shthole.
I guess that Incontinent4Ever's claim of 2000 executions was BS.
And it appears that Obama's decision to approach with caution was spot on.
I agree. Let them figure it out themselves.

no, they don't have to declare. that's why the Mississippi AG said it's unenforceable.

but the law is very clear on unauthorized 'poll watchers'.

if Iran is "at the table", it's just because they see that Obama is giving away free food....

A 4-year-old girl helped solve a crime after her babysitter staged a burglary at her home, police said.

The babysitter reported that two black men armed with a gun and knife barged into the Ferndale, Wash., house where she was watching three children on Wednesday, the Whatcom County Sheriff's Office said.

The teen told police the men forced her to take the children and leave.

The teen led police to a neighbor who fit her description of the suspects and he was taken into custody, Elfo said.

But her alleged ruse unraveled when one of the children told police the burglars were white, not black.

"She described the suspects as having peach-colored skin as opposed to having dark-colored skin," Sheriff Bill Elfo told ABC News.

The babysitter eventually admitted to police she was involved in the thefts. She concocted the story after letting two men, including her 16-year-old boyfriend, into the house to steal about $1,500 worth of the family's belongings, including laptops, game system components and a piggy bank, according to a police report.

I love the "FACT" that you are stuck on stupid...Look up the retirement pay for a Captain and then tell me what it pays...I'm also retired from the private sector Airhead. I have invested wisely and even though I despise the Bush Administration they made me money at the expense of other hard working Americans. You only serve to make yourself look like a bigger idiot by posting the very same old stale crap day after day.

Alison Grimes was in NY last night with Harvey Weinstein. Maybe she could star in his latest movie about taking guns away from everyone, including to but not limited to, the police.
The housing crisis is far from over, it is not an investment anymore like it once was. If you notice rents are high now because no one can afford a house. The U.S. economy is in decline. The employment situation is going to go from bad to worse. Americans without jobs are Americans that cannot buy homes. Millions of Americans who are employed are finding it increasingly difficult to make it from month to month. The truth is that there are many houses still in foreclosure and the signs of a recovering house market are not good. There is a shadow market that exists that makes the average person like you think housing is doing well. The banks are only releasing a small amount of foreclosed houses onto the market, creating the illusion that they are too few houses.
