waterboarding is not torture, so "including waterboarding" was not necessary. If it protects the lives of citizens, I am all for it. It got us Bin Laden, didn't it?
Actually it did not. No one other than "Dick" Cheney ever said it did.

Obama's record is not nearly as bad as the GOPers would have us believe! Ceteris paribus or all thing being equal, no leader or governing party thrives politically in difficult economic times. During his first two years in office, President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies in Congress compiled a substantial record of policy accomplishment -- the economic stimulus, bringing the financial system back from the brink of collapse, rescuing two automakers, universal health care, sweeping reform of financial regulation, and major changes in student loan programs, among many others. Nevertheless, the political standing of both the president and congressional Democrats slipped steadily through much of this period. While some contests remain unresolved, the Democrats have lost at least six Senate seats, at least ten governorships, and more than sixty House seats, the most for a mid-term election since 1938. By any measure, this is a substantial and consequential expression of public discontent. Besides the relentless bombardment of negativity by the opposition’s propaganda machinery, the most obvious is the unusual quantity and nature of problems that Obama inherited when he took the oath of office. Because economic downturns induced by financial crises differ fundamentally from ordinary cyclical recessions, recovery is slower and takes longer, generating sustained high unemployment.
Economic downturns caused by financial problems are tough to recover from. But who is responsible for the financial problems that caused the downturn? I say government. Before the advent of the Federal Reserve Act, panics/recessions were relatively short lived. The Fed coupled with government bureaucrats and politicians trying to manage a decentralized economy such as ours produced the Great Depression. Similarly, the Great Recession is a product of the same government failures. Some economists estimate had FDR not intervened in the economy in the way he did the Great Depression would have ended 7 years sooner. There are ominous parallels between the and now.

<quoted text>Do any of you Repubs have a problem with other nations using torture on US troops now that Bush started using it on others?
During the War Crime trails after WWII, one of the charges that were brought against Japanese and German leaders was a charge of torture that included water boarding. Were we wrong 60 years ago or wrong today?
******

I have a problem with it. These people who capture our troops show no mercy and waterboarding is probably the least of their worries. Physical torture is more their speed. Did it not make you sick to see our soldiers dragged naked through the streets until there was no hide left on their bodies, and then hung over a bridge by the neck or by whatever what left of them? Those pictures would have made any loyal American puke at the sight of this.

Maybe we should ask some of our veterans what they think of other nations where their buddies were captured? The whole thing is wrong IMO.......and that's why we need to bring our troops home and end the BS that we are so needed to protect every country on earth.

That's just my opinion but let me tell you this y'all.........those photos that were on the internet are ones that haunt me to this day. If you did not see them, don't look unless you have a strong stomach.

The real problem Frank,is that most of what Obama has done,most of what the Democratic part of Congress has done, is not wanted by some 48% of the people and some 63% don`t want the Medical Reform..All of what you call accomplishments,have either been against the conservative`s thinking,or ,had to do with the problems brought on by the Democratic Congress not regulating the banking system,including Freddie and Fannie.They even left them alone after the bubble burst,allowed the stimulus to allow big bonus for the leaders,for their failures.We see this all as a big failure,not successes.
Now don`t get me wrong,the Republicans are not better.That is why so ,we tout the Tea Party types,term limits,no more money collecting by the Congressional persons.There is no way you can provide a satisfactory result when the Democrats that were opposed to Obama Care were bribed to vote for it,all done openly!

To express ones own opinion, is all that Frank? Methinks you are a wordsmith! Or as it is sometimes called in layman’s terms, a bullshit artist! Now how about the math question in post 45016?

Well at your suggestion I guess we should all watch a few George Jefferson episodes to get a realtime view of what the dems talking point tactics.

The democrats are poking fun and announcing that they think Romney should pick Newt or Bachman as his VP. On that same hilarious note...Romney still has a choice as to who will be his running mate but the Obamoron is stuck with that crazy old man Biden! Now THAT is hilarious!

I never said what Jefferson was politically, did I? How can you correct something that was never said or insinuated? Oh that's right, you Obamorons do it all the time and actually think people buy into your horse shit! lol I simply suggested that you watch a few of the Jefferson's episodes to get a clear view of how democrats operate and think and their reasoning. In other words...the Jefferson's show portrayed many of the views that democrats hold sacred.

Sorry, but it isn't humanly possible to dumb myself down to your level to help you comprehend what you read.

"what the dems talking points tactics" technically doesn't mean anything. He had to guess because you don't seem capable or articulating what you think you mean. You probably can't dumb yourself down to that level because you would first have to increase your intelligence.

That's true, The Jeffersons, TV program did portray many view Democrats hold sacred...upward mobility for minorities, racial tolerance, acceptance of inter-racial marriage, respect for people of different backgrounds. It shouldn't be surprising since the program was developed by Norman Lear, a well known supporter of the Democratic Party.

Of course, Norman also developed All In The Family to illustrate the bigotry and proud ignorance that are the hallmarks of the GOP. Back then it was satire. Today it's damned near a documentary.

Now, how does it feel to be a dumbass on both sides of a metaphor?
