    So we should have let the Soviet Union do what it wanted in Afghanistan?

    Yes, it was better then supporting militant Islamists which have been eating our lunch. What have we lost now, 10,000 American lives to them, more. What have we spent in money in the ME since 1980, how many trillions of dollars, and the bitches are stronger now then ever. US policy in the ME for decades equals FAIL!

    No, and I see no similarities whatsoever. Denying Cuba nuclear missiles, compares how exactly with supporting militant Islamic groups who we only have to fight latter, and who show up on our shores with attacks like 9/11.

    "I see liberalism/progressivism/socialism/Marxism/statism/fascism as a continuum of totalitarians whose main differences involve their tools of tyranny and implementation speed. All run counter to the ideal of individual liberty and freedom this nation was founded upon."

    LOL. This is humorous. How does one pay for wars? Cheerleader car washes?

    Tell me more. We can begin with fascism, if you want. Or choose your own starting point. Let's see where it goes.

    Certainly this president, an Islamofascist Supporter, has failed.

    We could develop all of our own power resources using market forces. That would lessen the need for intervention in the Middle East.

    Merely stating what most of this thread supports, is that the progressives have drank from the polling numbers well for five and a half years,. and now that that support is sliding, as was predicted by one person at least, me, shortly after the last election, and continued through the stupid pride based dick wagging with congress.

    While the Obama-as-hero gang has insisted there is "nothing to" the criticisms I and others have been raising, his numbers are tumbling. With now weeks before the mid terms, they rabidly cling to the claim Obama will regain majorities in both houses, that there is no error in his administration or policies, their only response when confronted with the cold truth of polling results lagging, is to say, as you do, "what about Bush?"

    Again, it's about what's happening now and in the near future...as in mid terms, as in the last gasp of the Obama administration in which he may even face Bush's low numbers. Let's face it, if he loses congress to the people he called "enemies" and has been bashing for six years, what chances do you think are they going to let him use the White House toilet?

    can you see some "executive branch" cost cutting which he will have to veto?

    Hey, the crap has only begun to flow backward.....I suspect there's some "traitors and terrorists" who would like some pay back.....and they are going to get it.

    OMG! THANK YOU!!!!

    The facts are Obama's numbers are actually better than Bush's. If you look at the links, you'll see that.

    Again, read the link. Pay attention to each word.

    Agreed, all intervention in the ME has been about oil. Jimmy Carter's energy policy was aimed at developing our own energy resources. Remember he turned the thermostat down and wore a sweater in the White House, installed solar panels on the roof of the WH. But the next couple of presidents were 'big oil' presidents and so Carter's policy wasn't pursued, Reagan immediately removed the solar panels from the roof and turned the thermostat back up.

    Hagel also addressed recent criticisms by former Federal Chairman Alan Greenspan that oil had been a motivation for the invasion of Iraq, which he believed were valid.

    But what you probably haven't seen -- because everyone has forgotten -- is that back in 2007, Chuck Hagel went totally crazy and told the truth about our invasion of Iraq. Here's what he said:

    People say we're not fighting for oil. Of course we are. They talk about America's national interest. What the hell do you think they're talking about? We're not there for figs.
