    Or just being honest. Some people can't distinguish between opinion and fact and they go off the rails when they equate the two. That's why i use IMO.
    Nobody 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.

    Ah, very true, I never thought of it that way.

    If I remember right, those that were in college at the time were exempt from the draft, among other reasons. Why is he any worse than the millions of other young men that didn't get drafted?

    Trans vaginal ultrasound, anyone?
    again, pandering....I predict there will be no changes of abortion law or birth control for the next 12 years....
    likewise gun laws....
    Romney will likely do what is needed to fix our economy and let the little stuff slide...
