- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
Obama Budget Rejected by House in 414-0 Vote
Well yes, it is being mentioned in dollar figures. Thats how the debt clock measures it and that's how economists mention it, so i figured I'd follow that tradition.It is LARGER than it has been in the past, so of course the national debt is going to increase more than in the past if you measure in absolute dollar figures.
Those Democrats sure can spend, all right. Wilson, the Democrat, was replaced by Harding, a Republican. It's likely the American people will repeat this wisdom.Obama presided over a larger increase in the deficit than, say, Woodrow Wilson, when the GDP was 1/500th of what it is today? Stop the presses!
I agree. His has his supporters pegged.Keep going, you're on a roll. Literally every post you make proves that Obama was absolutely correct in that YouTube clip you posted.
via Huffington Post: "Moderator: What percentage of the American legislature do you think are card-carrying Marxists or International Socialist?
West: It's a good question. I believe there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party. It's called the Congressional Progressive Caucus."
