It's impossible to be "in his shoes" and concurrently be in a "right mind", now or ever!
Laurel Dallas saidIs this supposed to mean you think Hillary Clinton is not in her right mind?Would that apply to Ted Cruz and Rand Paul too, or do you just draw the line at Democrats?Do you think Screaming Sarah, the self-described Grizzly Momma, is or ever has been in her right mind?
Laurel said:"Do you think Screaming Sarah, the self-described Grizzly Momma, is or ever has been in her right mind?"She is no more and no less unhinged than our President. Whether one prefers one over the the other depends on political party, nothing else.
No contest, at least Sarah had a spine!
News Flash!Sarah Palin is Not the President, but the inept Obama is!
So what has really changed from GWB to the Obama presidency? Not much. Party labels mostly. Both GWB and Obama asserted that "Islam is a religion of peace", both denying the undeniable in the real world.
Interesting article from a recent edition of the WaPo: Obama losing the confidence of key parts of the coalition that elected him.Excerpt:Kimberly Cole was part of the coalition that voted in 2008 to make Barack Obama the 44th president and gave him another four years in 2012 to deliver on his promises of hope and change.Now, the 36-year-old mother of three young children in Valencia, Calif., is among the majority of Americans who have lost confidence in Obama’s leadership and the job he is doing as president.“He’s been faced with a lot of challenges, and he’s lost his way,” Cole said in an interview. She worries that Obama lacks the resolve needed at a time when things at home and abroad are looking scarier.On the other side of the country, Karlene Richardson, 44, once counted herself a “very strong supporter” of the president. But now she feels much the same as Cole does.“Honestly, I just feel that what I bought into is not what I’m getting,” said Richardson, an author and motivational speaker who teaches health-care administration at a community college in Queens. “I’m starting to wonder whether the world takes us seriously.”Both Cole and Richardson were surveyed in the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll and represent one of its most striking findings: the degree to which the president’s approval has slipped among key parts of the Obama coalition — the women, youth and Latino voters most responsible for putting him into office....
As long as Obama did nothing, the Left could project whatever image they desired upon his blank frame... but as he begins to HAVE to do things about ISIS, they find that their projections no longer suit reality.
Thersites,Good point about projections.Obama has been "all things to all people," hasn't he? Like a chameleon.
Once again, you have those ignorant right wingers allover the blogs riling up the country and screaming about how weak Obama is to "keep us safe" from guys without ships or planes or missiles because they will come here and Behead us Americans? Really?Jesus Christ, are we falling for this idiocy again?Remember when we called us the "attack dogs" for Middle Eastern Monarchies? Are we really gonna do that again? Really?I say, we walk away from this idiocy and don’t allow a bunch of right-wing war mongers get us involved in another war!!! And if these “Muslims” over there do something we don't like, target their LEADERS. But beyond that, leave it to the nearly 1.5 million troops that are already there. Why is this so complicated? How many “Muslims” did it take to pull off 911? It also didn't help that most of the planning was done while our moron commander in chief was reading "My Pet Goat". So why is it always the US and Great Britain who respond?....let the Muslims take care of their own trash.....they all claim they don’t like these guys....so then let them send in troops....Between Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Turkey, their combined military is over 520,000. Pakistan alone has a military of over 550,000.That's just over a million troops from just four Middle Eastern Countries.Go ahead and add in the ridiculous, worthless Iranian military and the worthless, incompetent GOP trained Iraqi military, who will never be any damn good and that's another 350,000.And how many does ISIS have? 5,000? 10,000? 20,000?
We have listened to the advice from Pussies like Dilloduck before and where has it gotten us? We have elected liberals pussies like Barack Hussain Obama and where has that gotten us? We have destroyed two Islamic states since 9/11 - the only thing changed is the Muslim terrorists of ISIS are better funded and armed than before, except they are still cutting off the heads of Americans. We invaded Iraq in 2003, and then Afghanistan and the only thing that has happened is that we lost 10's of thousands of Americans .What is going on in the Middle East is the Arabic version of the Thirty Years War between Protestants and Catholics that laid waste to Central Europe in the 17th century.This conflict will continue until two more generations of Sunni and Shiite Muslims males are dead in about 2030.The upside for America is that our attempt at nation building in Iraq has provided both sides in the Muslim civil war with enough weapons to destroy the current generation of troublesome Muslim youths.Yes, we should be very concerned with Muslim terrorism in America and Europe and this should be the focus of our war effort. Here’s the deal, if we are going to go to war, and i am not saying that we shouldn’t, in fact I think that we SHOULD! But we must do it the correct way this time. What is the reason, and the good of having the capability of destroying the enemy, if we don't use that capability?Right now the United States has a total inventory of 4,650 nuclear weapons, including nearly 2,000 actively deployed warheads. What is the reason to have the capability of completely destroying the enemy, and sitting back only to see the enemy kill and maim our troops? If we are going to go to war again, then we have to fight to win, we can not tie the hands of our troops again.
Here’s the way that I see it, if the Muslims have an image problem, it is from their own making. Islam has always ran by the theory If you would not convert willingly, you were killed. That is the tolerance of Islam, the so called Realign of peace. That is the respect that Islam has for other religions. They have been killing Europeans, and other Arabs for more than 1200 years. If Islam offers the infidel peace, it is only the peace of the grave.Be-headings, rape gangs, kidnaping of little girls and women for sex slaves and other atrocities is the cause for non Muslims is not peaceful by any means. Decent people will not be intimidated into silence and inaction. This is HATE not Peace or Love. To any other faith, Islam offers only an existential threat. It is not a tolerant religion, if you want toleration you must pay the Jizya. A bribe to live as a second class citizen, but you may not build or repair your houses of worship, and you may not recruit new members. When the Muslims grow restless, they will rape your women, and they will burn and desecrate your churches. That is how you will live until Islam finally decides to end you.Islam is a cult created by a madman pedophile and subscribed by evil minded people.Make no mistake, Europe fears Islam. It has lived under the Caliphate, and suffered greatly in their bondage. They are motivated partly by fear and partly by political correctness. That attitude lead to the Holocaust, and it would appear that they are headed there again. Even in Malmo, once famous for harboring the Jews from the Nazis, has turned hostile to them. I submit that it is far easier to side with the rabid evil of Islam than to stand for right. But while easier, it is also the coward’s way.
Israel is worthy of protection and preservation. It is the lone voice of reason in the Middle East. It makes no distinctions between it’s citizens, and yet it is threatened on all borders. Watch MEMRI TV and immerse yourself in the narrow minded hatred of Islam. Learn what institutionalized hatred is all about, and maybe you will understand Israel’s predicament. But the threat to Israel is even greater than you know.The war between Britain and the IRA caused psychological casualties in Belfast. Injuries that are being inflicted on Israel today. How long can a child be afraid and not succumb to psychological injury? How long can an adult? The bombardment of Israel is far more costly than merely the price in blood. Yet every time that she moves to defend herself, Europe and lately the United States, comes down on her. The Palestinians brought this down on themselves.They are truly a vile people. They teach their children to hate, they betray their friends, and they deceive. No wonder the left loves them so, they are so alike. I guess that is why so many on the left wear a Keffiyeh.Muzlim anti-semitic, anti-Christian, America haters can take full advantage of our freedoms, the refusal to use common sense “profiling,” our pathetic visa laws, the lack of enforcement of visa laws, and a total denial among the liberal masses of the threat of jeehad and Muzlim terror.SEPTEMBER 11TH commemorates the greatest act of mass murder in the country at the hands of THE MUSLIMS.That is, unless you are the leader of the Free World.And Mr. Obama, as Commander-in-Chief, your actions — or lack thereof cost lives. As you bumble about in your golf cart, slapping on a happy face and fist-pounding your buddies, your cowardly lack of leadership has left a gaping hole — not only in America’s security — but the security of the entire globe. Your message has come across loud and clear, sir: You are not up to this job. You know it. We know it. The world knows it.America has always been exceptional. And she will be again. You, Mr. President, are a bump in our road.”So please, do us all a big favor and vacate the people’s house and allow a REAL man or woman of courage and substance to seize the reigns of this out-of-control thug-fest and regain the balance we, America, have provided throughout our great history.“Fool me once…..Fool me twice!!”For all those that put Obambi in the White House, and you “Progressives” know exactly who the hell you are, thanks for nothing..And on another thought, while I have center stage, WTF is wrong with black people? Looting local businesses & destroying property? REALLY?BLACKS kill other black’s, white’s, Hispanic’s, Asian’s, Cops, EVERYDAY in this country. Babies, grandmothers, parents, teens…. all in random acts of violence EVERY DAMN DAY.. Where is the damn outrage over that?When BLACKS kill, NO, there’s never an outrage over that, no looting of local businesses over that. No policing your own over that. But one white gets trigger happy (supposedly) and the whole damn neighborhood gets torched. Hell, the shooter doesn’t even have to actually be white as long as he LOOKS white.You want the Cops to ease up on your communities? Start acting like you care, and stop acting like Animals and Savage’s…And Obama is complaining about the way the police are treating these Blacks? Give me a friggen break!The full speech.“I um I uh am, uh sorry to umm uh hear about this uh tragedy. Moochelle and I were uh umm flying to uh, um, the Vineyard, to shoots me a round of Golf when we uh, um heard about this. I have err, um instructed uh my um errr Attorney General to conduct a um full investigation. In the meantime, feel free to take as many flat screens and hair extensions that you can carry. I um, uh thank you… And uhh, remember, No justice, No peace!God bless you all my CONSERVATIVE Patriotic Friends.
Your description of. "Vile" people describes RN to a Tee.
More trouble with being in Obama's shoes right now: ISIS, Syrian rebels reach ceasefire:Moderate Syrian rebels and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) reportedly struck a cease-fire deal on Friday, according to a group that has monitored Syria's civil war. The groups agreed to a non-aggression pact in which they promised not to attack each other.The development could influence members of Congress to vote “no” on an authorization to train and equip moderate rebel groups as early as next week. The White House has requested the authorization, but some lawmakers have already been skeptical the opposition groups can be trusted.... So much for that coalition that Obama has been yapping about.
The only way to end evil is by utter eradication.Lets face facts. We only have been in an armistice since the end of world war 2. We've never been at true peace because evil was not DESTROYED. It was allowed to continue and fester and grow. It just found another host. Instead of the Nazi's it jumped to the islamofacists.
ISIS is only part of a larger problem. The bigger issue involving radical Islam is right here in our midst on our shores. The biggest ally of America in the Arab world is Saudi Arabia and over the span of several decades have invested heavily in building mosques across the world and especially in North America.Wahhabi Islam is an extreme interpretation of the tenets of Islam, preaching hatred, intolerance and violence against those considered unbelievers and infidels. Here's the problem: American Presidents G. W. Bush and Barrack Obama have both been pictured embracing the Saudi leaders and assuring everyone that "Islam is a religion of peace". Meanwhile this hate-filled ideology is imported into America with the stamp of approval of America's so-called leaders.And with ISIS the declared personna non grata of the day, Saudi Arabia is extolled as an ally in the war against this new enemy. Somehow, I can't see this working out to the benefit of anybody but the Capstone Committee.
Time to face the fact that the reason Saudi Arabia has so much influence today is for one reason, oil.Don't like this? Then we should go nuclear. Is a waste disposal facility in Nevada too high a price to pay for not subsidizing political Islam?
Thersites,When are those oil deposits in Saudi going to run out? I've heard that the end is not too many years away.
Ducky, Shaw, Libmann, and Dave are all lefties who are part of the problem. If you check out those leftist sites that advocates immigration for illegals, free Obama-Phones, Food-Stamps , Free- this and Free that, all these views would easily fit with the opinions of the lefty bloggers on these board
And just how is Obama's much-touted anti-ISIS coalition working out? See Turkey fails to cut Islamic State oil revenue despite US pressure.It seems that Obama has very nearly run out of political capital.
How many more trillion$$$ do the Saudi's need to make Islam ascendant?
