You might be a RepubliCON:
if President Obama brings home 10,000 soldiers from war and call it a "failed jobs program."
I am sure I left some out....oh yeah and the FACT that PRESIDENT OBAMA had the Seals kill bin laden, not BUSH who was going to do everything to hunt him down...yeah right
AND he owns every death of soldiers from both of those wars to this day. Think again. Looking good for President Obama. He is the one who ENDS wars not start them. Syria would be no war. Navy strikes from ships....DONE. Russia's naval station there...GONE. Their naval ships close by GONE. They both are chicken shits worried the US MILITARY will take them out. Giving up the chemicals will remain to be seen if they give them up. Neither asswipe is trustworthy. You repukes must be quivering with chills at the thought of another hero to add to your loser list. Speaks volumes of your so called patriotism.
Vladimir Putin's comments on American exceptionalism, Syria cause a fuss
"It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation," he wrote.
That didn't go down well with everyone.
The overall tone of Putin's latest broadside was too much for Senator Menendez, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, who said he read the article at dinner on Wednesday.
"I almost wanted to vomit," said Menendez. "I worry when someone who came up through the KGB tells us what is in our national interests, and what is not. It really raises the question of how serious the Russian proposal is."
RIP LYING TEABAGGING GOP CONS
Choosing between Republican & Democrat polluticians is like choosing between syphilis and gonorrhea. Still, it's comical to read the arguments in blogs, chat rooms, and forums that are tantamount to "My venereal disease is better than your venereal disease!".
I'll pencil you in for syphilis.
Your selective indignation is duly noted.
