Right on...

'... two kinds of leaders. Those who start a parade, and those who wait for a parade to form and then get in front of it. Obama waits for a parade to form, makes sure it is big enough to serve a person of his magnificence, and gets in front of it.'

This should be a lesson to all who want America to be more like Europe and a socialist system.

http://news.msn.com/world/french-government-d...

The President of France, François Hollande, is a socialist. Until this past January, he had campaigned boldly on a platform defending government spending, maintaining social benefits, and high taxes on the wealthy. Hollande announced last January he wanted tax cuts on businesses and cuts in government spending.

France now joins Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Poland and Romania in cutting government spending and their economies grew faster than the average for the European Union. Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy all increased government spending from 2008 to 2012. In fact, Greece, Spain, and Portugal actually increased government spending faster than the average for the EU.

We should learn from the mistakes of socialist countries like France - not imitate them.

Idiots are people like you who want to go to war with a barbaric group of rag tag radicals. Yes, as one political science professor said, "They have to be eliminated, they have to be annihilated, they have to be stopped." But, as he added, boots on the ground do not need to be American. European governments provided ISIS with millions of dollars in ransom and it is the "people in the Middle East who must to be willing and motivated to stop ISIS."
Obama is right...No boots on the ground!!
Idiots are the people that are willing to let the terrorist take over the world,plant their flag on The White House and kill every one that doesn't doesn't convert to Islam.

We would all be making a grave mistake by coddling a 9/10 mentality with the anniversary of 9/11 around the corner. The world changed on that day and we can never forget - especially with the present threat of an Islamic State in Iraq - it couldn't happen again.
This is the reason Presidents George H.W. Bush and President Bill Clinton left Saddam in place. Bush’s actions destabilized Iraq and the entire region. You warmongers should be so proud.

Yep, blame it all on 9-11.

9-11 caused the Republicans to hand out huge tax cuts that Bush promised long before 9-11 slashing revenues while increasing spending. And 9-11 forced Republicans to pass a huge unfunded expansion to Medicare.

If there wasn't a surplus, what did Bush mean when he ran on "giving it back".

Right whiners are all dumber than sh*t.

Blah...blah...blah. Clinton was the sitting president at the time of the attack on the USS Cole and apparently he knew who the attackers were immediately.
But if it makes you sleep better at night, just keep blaming Bush even if he wasn't elected yet.
lol! Yep!

That sums up your point son. Especially since I simply used YOUR source.

This is what happens when you start letting your opinions take over reality....

Reagan actually did all those things Galt listed.
He "returned Americans' pride in their country, badly damaged by Carter. He ended the Carter recession and double-digit inflation. And he brought about the demise of the Iron Curtain and the Soviet Empire."
You have just been seriously misled.
You know? It occurs to me your 'messiahs' are all conservatives.

Perhaps it's the 'party' you're praying to........

1st. If Obama is actually that bad you would not have to lie.
2nd: "Boots on the ground" statements referred to combat troops. Not military personnel stationed to train, advise, humanitarian needs, in & out special ops, or protect US interests.
They all have weapons. Ass kisser!

Just in case some on the left want to argue against the success of austerity measures in some European countries:

"For years, Britain has had controversial austerity measures in place. Olivier Blanchard, the International Monetary Fund's chief economist, likened them to playing with fire. This past week, the IMF published its World Economic Forecast and concluded the fastest-growing economy of any rich country in the world is Britain's. Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, led the U.K.'s austerity measures."

No one was talking about White house protocol dumbo. I was talking about war mongers like you and most baggers. Bush never ever attended any of the 4, 500 that he sacrificed. Trying to keep peace in our nation has become far greater now with the crazed baggers racist and bigoted morons who look for any and everything to promote their agenda, while defaming our president, even at the risk of American lives as they have already proven. Open you eyes dummy.
