Because, like obama, Catcher's words don't reflect his beliefs or his actions. Catcher may say he's for gay rights, but inside he's a closet homophobe. Catcher tells us that he's a champion against racism, but his posts often reflect that his beliefs are often race based, and not based in facts.
Yes this is true.

Several days ago I asked the question "Who is playing pResident obama more... the Russians, the Chinese, President Assad or the Syrian rebels?" I think we've all seen the answer... the Russians, more specifically, Vlad Putin. It's embarrassing how easily Putin is getting away with openly schooling obama. It's even more pathetic to see how the liberal media and the obama administration are trying to make it look like pResident obama is the driving force behind our current Syrian policy.
On a much smaller scale this reminds me of the outright lies Harry Reid spoke on the floor of the Senate years ago slandering Rush. When Rush turned it around and used a letter many dems signed and rasied millions for charity Reid again lied saying that was the plan all along. Clueless sums it up. See this?

US military has revised Syria strike plan 50 times, source says

I'd much rather they'd revise the 'strike plan' hundreds of times, than carry it out ONCE.

Just sayin.

Oh, and sorry your tax bills are too low, as well...?

Yes I agree since the keystone cops are in office right now. I too am rather upset since my low tax bill reflects the home I live is has lost 70% of its value. Could be worse. Down the street are some homes that were built in 2007. At the time these were listed around 250 -300 k depending on bedrooms. Most can now be had for around 70 to 90 today.

Travolta is said to have a house here. Yet to see him. Of course this is the world headquarters of Scientology.

Agreed.
I'm having a hard time visualizing Putin smiling for the cameras & pulling down Romney's pants and spanking him in front of the entire world like he's repeatedly doing to Obama.
The US isn't the only country proficient in doing psychological profiles of foreign heads of state and Vlad has Barry's number. He doesn't think he's weak. He knows he's weak. The KGB made a science of studying world leaders and Putin was a top notch student. Factor in the US economy is in the toilet, we have a bad case of honey I shrunk the military, our debt is mind boggling, and Americans are uninspired and poorer.
What better time to bat us around like a bug?
Did you know Putin is now speaking directly to the American people via (are you ready for this?)-------> the New York Times of all places!
Ta Da
Now that's what I'd call on big literary coup!
Can't decide which is more ironically appropriate - the right-wing's polemically-driven myopic embrace of the leader of the communist world, or their trumpeting an "editorial" chock-full of Muscovite half-truths and disingenuous claims. Raised and suckled on Faux Noize teats for a generation now, it's no small wonder, I 'spose.....

I don't know about (or even purport to understand) what you say here.

Dodgers and SF are tied 1-1 in the fourth.

I don't really care for baseball, but I can switch to the news (in Socal, vehicle pursuits, identification of dead bodies, an investigative report now and them) or if there's a good travel program.

Drink in hand, appetizers to be followed by a simple dinner with a Provence rose.

I post this, at least in part, to enjoy the lash-out I will surely receive as a result.

Fire away.

Not really.

I started with no money, and ended up with a lot of money.

I got the best possible education, was careful in selecting career opportunities, worked hard, and earned it.

I owe it all to the values taught me by my parents. My heroes.

Do we really think that anyone, much less Putin, would have "engineered" this >possible< deal, if the US threat hadn't pushed them to it? This regime has used gas >at least< 14 times, and the world yawned nervously. Where was Putin's "deal" prior to the threat of US intervention?

After being forced to concede that >all< of the pre-invasion justifications were shown to be false, this very forum will show instance after instance of Bush defenders falling back on Iraq's use of gas on their own citizens. Yet the very same thing just ten years later would have rated barely a tsk-tsk on the daily radar feed were it not for the President's lead in calling all the nations to live up to their vow to condemn and punish it's use.

We've seen snide partisan-driven comments about checkers vs chess. How's about the above for a chess move? How about a final move that maneuvered Syria's strongest ally into acting, or we should say, reacting? But! Even better, now Putin has put >Russian< credibility and prestige on the line to see that Syria follows through. Now, Russia, not the US, >owns< the result. If that means just one rogue nation is stripped of WMDs, what true citizen of humanity cares who gets the "credit"?

Certainly not this one. Strip 'em all on Russia's say so, as long as they're stripped. And while we're at it, let's strip one more. Us. What the fork do we need WMD's (nuclear weapons) for, anyway? So we can be the first to say we lobbed one...oh wait...ok, so we can say we lobbed ANOTHER one?

Pffft.

Hey, Hip. You gotta admit, the comments about how this goat-rope is shaking out have been anything but partisan. In fact, I've never seen any action by this president draw a more non-partisan reaction. Joe Klein, a Hillary supporter who has argued that the likes of Glenn Beck, Republican Senator Tom Coburn and former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin should be tried for sedition (hardly a Faux news partisan, eh) wrote this:

Obama Has “Damaged His Presidency And Weakened The Nation’s Standing In The World.”“He willingly jumped into a bear trap of his own creation. In the process, he has damaged his presidency and weakened the nation’s standing in the world.”“It has been one of the more stunning and inexplicable displays of presidential incompetence that I’ve ever witnessed. The failure cuts straight to the heart of a perpetual criticism of the Obama White House: that the President thinks he can do foreign policy all by his lonesome. This has been the most closely held American foreign-policy-making process since Nixon and Kissinger, only there’s no Kissinger.”(Joe Klein,“Obama And Styria: Stumbling Toward Damascus,” Time, 9/11/13)

I personally disagree with his assessment that "the presidency" and the nation's standing have been damaged. I think the only damage done has been to obama himself. I think the overwhelming opposition by the American people, which aligns with that of the world community, attests to that.

Well, I don't have to admit it, I said that very thing in discussion with a friend recently, "One thing about it, this President has united the country on at least one issue." Please review. My statement about partisan-driven comment was specifically toward the foolish "chess/checkers" analogy. These inane analogies are naive and/or ideologically motivated, as opposed to truly caring about the outcome in Syria. I heard one radio entertainer gabbing about whether the President "wins" or "loses" in a vote before Congress. Is that what we've come to? The fate of innocent civilians, not to mention the question of international adherence to a WMD treaty, are all rolled up into gratuitous political wins and losses? Can we be more self-absorbed? Sad times, fer shur...

President Obama did not set the red-line, Congress and the international community did. His fault lies in idealistically stating it as if we all really meant it. How silly of him.

You may be right. It's been said that this President does nothing not politically advantageous. This latest stand would seem to give lie to that charge. I think that people have not calmly assessed why the President would pursue something so opposed by the nation as well as the world. Could it be that President Obama actually believes all that rhetoric about a "beacon on a hill", humanitarian leadership, and American exceptionalism that we hear so much about.....

....when there's nothing on the line?

The White House non response...
http://www.businessinsider.com/vladimir-putin...
"Among other things, Putin wrote that there was "every reason to believe" the chemical-weapons attack on Aug. 21 was perpetrated not by the Syrian government, but by rebel forces. Of course, the White House has presented evidence that says the attack was carried out by the Assad regime — and that it killed 1,429 people, including 426 children."
I didn't see obama's White House present any "evidence" that Assad's regime launched the chemical attack. I heard obama, and his administration, "claim" that Assad launched the chemical weapons attacks....
There ya go - Putin's "reason to believe" trumps Obama's "evidence". Another example of incipient right-wing pro-Russian propaganda. Wait, what's this coming over the tele-type?

I don't know if you ever come down this way but if you do in the next few days, take Gulf of Mexico Drive. Every year since 2002 the road is lined with (2,974?) American flags, one about every 10 feet for each of the victims of 911. It goes on for a couple of miles - I live out on the island so I see it all the time but it never loses it's impact and it's worth coming down this way to see it.

You use the word (I) too often.

But you just can't resist, can you? The exact same point could have been made without using >yourself< in all your glory, as an example.
Your parents forgot to teach you one value which is very important. Humility. Don't always hunt for a way to make everything about ----->YOU. Go out of your way to avoid it.
