    Apparently you haven't seen public opinion on this, nor watched the GOPs use a beheading in one of their campaign ads.
    Or seen CON posters put out cartoons with a beheading tied to Obama's golf game .
    We're not in the Middle East for be headings or humanitarian reasons.

    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.

    The truth is not always nice to hear.

    And we're there to cut off the head of the ISIL snake--money from their oil.
    The President had no choice, and as you have seen, has had most of his words taken out of context for political reasons.

    Must be nice for Putin to not have this problem.
    If Putin had come to the USA for 48 hours as FOX advocated, the first thing he would have done is threatened Sedition on
    the 435 clowns and then threatened to kill them .

    I hope you get him on the ticket. It would be fun to watch him make more of a fool of himself than he already has.

    The event organizers brushed the booing off on "a few politically motivated opportunists" but that really doesn't jibe with Cruz walking out.
    These were Middle Eastern/Mediterranean Christians, many of whose denominations have long histories of distanced relations with Jews, and more recent opposition to some Israeli policies. They have nothing whatsoever to do with American evangelicals, and little impact on US politics.

    Indeed.

    In a time of universal deception, speaking the truth is a radical act.

    You one that believes we will be destroying the Islamic state? Of course Obama's words are twisted, that's what partisans do. Think the left never twisted Bush's words?? Look, people need to look past party politics which is the smoke and mirrors that hides the reality. That for decades the US government (republican and democrat alike) has supported militant Islamic groups, enemies to fight one day, allies the next. both parties have engaged in regime change, and both parties have engaged in policies that have inflamed radical Islamists. And the oil, the oil is the main reason the West is even in the Middle East at all. Since the end of WW2 the US has sought to control the supply of oil to the world and ensure its trade in US dollars, keep a strong ally in the region, keep bases in the region and interfere in various nations internal affairs to ensure that, and deny the USSR/Russia control of the same. There is no humanitarian missions, that is always the facade, or the lipstick on the pig.

    Exactly. Which is why Barrack Obama avoids it altogether.

    President Fidelity and Vice President Individual Liberty...winning ticket.

    Hey... what does President Constitution say about eliminating the FISA court and closing Gitmo detention?

    Lets see if the little prick has the cajones to want to deal with real constitutional issues or just a pretty talk.
