    . I say it isn't necessary or plausible.

    If you think I'm partisan, please tell me who it is I'm partisan for. Have you even read my posts or are you having some sort of automated response? When Obama is right, I support him. When he's wrong, I criticize him. If you can remember what the OP is, you'd realize that I've done nothing but attempt to explain why Obama has made the decision he's under attack for.



    Where did I ever say that a candidate for the office of President of the USA must be a military strategist?

    The simple answer is: Nowhere, I didn't say that.

    What I did say was that a candidate for the office must be able to handle the job.

    So are you saying Obama is a failure since he doesn't seem to know what to do about Syria? And that he might be getting advice from strategists instead of cooking up these ideas on his own?

    Mmmm. OK. I concede. Obama is not qualified for the job.

    Whether you think President Obama is qualified for th job or not really doesn't matter.

    Obama will be President of the USA until another Democrat takes his place in 2017.

    Deal with it.

    And have a nice day.

    I feel like I'm caught up in a real-life Kafka novel. I'm the one defending Obama. You're the one attacking him. And yet.....

    My opinions don't mean ****. Neither do yours.

    I'm confident that yours smells like a rose but I refuse to verify this personally. Can we bring this conversation to a close? Thanks.

    Re: Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian opposition.

    I think we've hit a dead end on whatever conversations were taking place.

    Firstly is there anyone who is ok with Obama waiving the ban on arming terrorists? If so why?

    For those who are not ok with Obama waiving these bans, what should we do to stop Obama? We can't contact him directly. There are only a few things I can think of and that's to contact our congresspeople and tell them to vote no on the funding. If this is a matter of the Executive branch then perhaps our only recourse is to start telling Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings.

    It's strange because two months ago I would have thought impeaching Obama would be ridiculous as there was nothing solid on him. Now he's arming terrorists. And since he's been doing this before the waiver he should indeed be tried for "high crimes and misdemeanors".

    Who cares? As the man said he's been out of office for five years!

    Try to keep up, okay?
