Israel's shill, Lieberman, will be gasping for air Skeletor McCain's chose for VP...

Isn't it time we turn our back's on Israel until they tear down their wall and unfreeze Palestinian assets and rebuild the Palestinian infrastructure they bulldozed? And repair the damage they did in Lebanon during last summer's incursion? Bombing the Beirut Civilian Airport? For what? To embolden Hezbollah as the Israel Army of Steel got a bloody nose?

Lieberman has to be run out of town - right after he sinks McCain

I've had about enough of American's uneven handed policy with these disgusting people.

Turn our backs to Israel, side with the Arabs, 75% of our Foreign Policy issues are solved.

This will be an interesting election, even with all the racists and xenophobes in this country, Obama has a real chance, he's already a better candidate than Kerry ever was.

After hearing Joe Biden promise us a two front escalation of the war into Afganistan and Pakistan I have called both my sons and their wives and told them "Don't you dare vote for this ticket."

A two front war Joe Biden? That means a DRAFT! Say goodbye to the youth vote.

You are not sending our sons and daughters into the mountains of Afganistan or the mountains of Pakistan! No Way. No how! No Obama/Biden!

Tonight "change" became nothing more than a change of the battlefields!

Barack Obama you cannot have my sons! One Vietnam weas enough in one lifetime. NO MORE WALLS!

Parents get on the phone and call your adult children and tell them the Obama/Biden plan for a two front war in Afganistan and Pakistan.

WARN THEM! Obama is not a JFK he is an LBJ! Under LBJ a half million American boys got DRAFTED then sent off to fight another democrats war. 55,000 of them died!

Thios election is over!

NO Administrative Experience
NO Military Experience
NO Foreign Policy Experience
NO Legislative Accomplishments

BIDEN:

Obama picked a life-long Washington D.C. hack as his Vice-President....

Read about Biden's rich lobbyist son, Hunter Biden,(the son who conveniently wasn't on stage at the convention). The son who is involved in a civil case for fraud. The son who makes millions from his father's connections. Do some research and find out for yourself:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...

I thought Obama was against lobbyists?
OBAMA = FRAUD.
(Clinton and McCain are no better, but at least they don't lie and pretend they are something they are not).

No Joe you cannot have my sons!

The Aerican people know a two front war in Afganistan and Pakistan will mean a DRAFT!

NO WAY! NO HOW! NO MORE! NO OBAMA/BIDEN TWO FRONT WAR TICKET!

Kiss the young adult vote goodbye! They are our children and trust me within 24 hours they will be warned about your plans for a two front war! The phones are going to be very busy tomorrow as parents call heir adult children all over this nation and say they are setting you up for another Vietnam.

NO WAY! NO HOW! NO OBAMA/BIDEN TWO FRONT WARS!

One Vietnam in a lifetime was enough. The Baby Boomers will not let you add nother 55,000 names of their children to another black marble wall.

This election is over! Joe Biden wants a two front war tell him to send his hedge fund son along with the Attorney General of Deleware. Our sons go no where without a Congressional Declaration of War and not before every politician kid is in uniform first! That includes Chelsea Clinton!

How could we not have picked Hillary Clinton! The only two front war she would fight is the energy independence war and the ecconomic war. Now we ahave a ticket that wanbts tio send our children off to fight in the mountains of Afganistan and Pakistan!

NO WAY! NO HOW! NO OBAMA/BIDEN WAR TICKET!

Everyone seems to forget that Obama is all about completely pulling out of Iraq ASAP, hence that drawback will account for the increased forces in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Simple math people.

Luckily most of your kids are probably smarter than you. Obama will have the youth vote easily, because we understand Obama's views and the current dilemmas of international policy better than most of you gheezers.

I cannot believe how uninformed the people on this board are.

What 2 front war are you talking about? Afghanistan and the FATA's of Pakistan is essentially a 1 front war, some geographic area and goals etc. That's where we need to be fighting anyway since the situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated so horribly. You completely gloss over the fact that Obama will pull the military out of Iraq if he gets elected.

Some history on Joey Hair Plugs:
* In 1979, he shared Carter's starry-eyed belief that the fall of the shah in Iran and the advent of the ayatollahs represented progress for human rights. Throughout the hostage crisis, as US diplomats were daily paraded blindfolded in front of television cameras and threatened with execution, he opposed strong action against the terrorist mullahs and preached dialogue.

* Throughout the 1980s. Biden opposed President Ronald Reagan's proactive policy against the Soviet Union. Biden was all for d├ętente - which, in practice, meant Western subsidies that would have enabled the moribund USSR to cling to life and continue doing mischief.

* In 1990, Biden found it difficult to support President George Bush's decision to use force to kick Saddam Hussein's army of occupation out of Kuwait.

* A decade-plus later, the senator did vote for the liberation of Iraq from Saddamite tyranny. But as soon as terrorists started challenging the new democratic system in Iraq, he switched sides and became a critic of the whole war effort. He claimed that the Iraq war was lost and suggested that the US partition the newly liberated country into three or more mini-states.

Biden's misreading of the situation in Iraq shows that experience is no substitute for judgment. He judged the situation on the basis of headlines and CNN footage - not the long-term, geo-strategic interests of the United States. In short, he lacked what President Harry Truman called "strategic patience."

* For more than a decade, Biden has adopted an ambivalent attitude towards the Islamic Republic in Tehran, now emerging as the chief challenger to US interests in the Middle East. Biden's links with pro-Tehran lobbies in the US and his support for "unconditional dialogue" with the mullahs echo Obama's own wrong-headed promise to circumvent the current multilateral efforts by seeking direct US-Iran talks, excluding the Europeans as well as Russia and China.

No you gloss over the fact there is no authorization from Congress to have an amrican soldier step one foot inside Pakistan. Our troops are in Afganistan under a U.N. resolution.

No Way! No How! No Obama /Biden two front war War Ticket!

It's right there in Biden's speech.

"...Or should you believe Barack Obama who said a year ago, "We need to send two more combat battalions to Afghanistan"?
The fact of the matter is, al Qaeda and the Taliban, the people who actually attacked us on 9/11, they've regrouped in the mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan and they are plotting new attacks...."

If al Queda and the Taliban are inside Pakistan that is a problem for the govermemnt of Pakistan and the military of Pakistan! There is no Congressional approval to enter Pakistan with military troops, no U.N. Resolution to use force in Pakistan. Just the Obama/Biden ticket trying to sneak it past the American people at a convention speech.

NO WAY! NO HOW! NO OBAMA/BIDEN two front war in Afganistan and Pakistan!

Then understand what Biden said!

Terrorist in Pakistan is a problem for mthe government and military of Pakistan. Obama/Biden have NO AUTHORIZATION to send combat forces into Pakistan. Biden's words is war mongering against the people of Pakistan.

Heaven help us this is exactly how Vietnam started! Then came the DRAFT. Thencame 500,000 american children sent off to war. Then came 55,000 names on a Black Marble Memorial in Washington D.C.

No Way! No How! No Obama/Biden War Ticket!

Changing the battlefield is not "CHANGE!" The total end of IMPERIALISM IS change!

THIS ELECTION IS OVER! We the Baby Boomers, the Vietnam era "youth vote" outright reject the escalation of the Iraq War into Afganistan and Pakistan.

No Way! No How! No Obama/Biden War Ticket!

P.S. You understand nothing. We lived the never ending Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos War that started with a couple battalions of "advisors." We buried 55,000 of our classmates.

Never Again! Not with our children!

No Way! No How! No Obama/Biden War Ticket!

These liberals seem to think they can send the sons of American blue collar workers off to fight their never ending wars.

That is who ends up fighting these wars! Not the poiticans children they are to busy running for office, or working in Daddy's camapaign,(Romney's 5 sons), running hedge funds and spending earmark millions in their phony corporations. But the sons and daughters of American blue collar workers get the same nonsensical speeches of "fight for your country" "it's your obligation to save the world", "they are planning more attacks."

The sons and daughters of the middle class, the sons and daughters of ordinary working Americans are the ones who's names appear on those War Memorial Walls.

No Way! No How! Not This time! No Obama/Biden Afganistan/Pakistan War Ticket!
