    No question about it, billions in debt, among the highest unemployment in the nation, an entitlement mentality. You bet, California is the crowning jewel of the liberal socialist society. Congratulations.

    California has almost 1.45 million unemployed people and an entitlement mentality. Apparently that is the success you want to spread to the rest of the country

    No, he was in the Senate then and did nothing to help prevent the financial crisis. He showed the same leadership skills then as he is showing now, zero.

    Yes, with filibuster rights and in the majority after the 2006 elections. Seems far too many have never taken basic civics

    To bring this back to the speech, and forgive me if this was already covered, but what the heck was lead from behind Barry giving that speech to that group? What a fail.

    If I was an American I would be furious with this. It's going to keep coming out of the tax payers pocket and the servicemen/women over there will remain targets for the foreseeable future.
    The worse thing you can do in a war is to tell the enemy when you are going to "Cut and Run" like sniveling cowards. All the enemy has to do is wait it out.

    Well, it "seems", I'm the one that's hip to the jive slick. So, peace out!

    Interesting. There must be a book of responses somewhere, because that is something that has been said many times.

    This tired old talking point? Where did you find this to dust it off? Common sense tells you that all the "enemy' has to do either way is wait it out. Why does it make a hill of beans if you set a time table. You neo-cons aren't happy without endless war fueling the war machine. Its absolutely vile and disgusting.

    Tired old talking point? Have you witnessed what has transpired in Iraq since we just cut and ran? AQ is on the rise, and contrary to what your hero Obama the weak one says, we are viewed as laughing stocks in the region because of his total **** up of that region.

    You, and those like you have completely thrown away the blood shed for any gains, or victories that preceded progressive rule in America....How pathetic liberal progressives really are....It is sad.
