    They changed tactics after we started helping them.

    You may be right but I assume we both hope not. Many keep looking for something in Obama that just isn't there, and in fact 'there is no there there'. That's why those who care about these things will always be concerned. He has no direction at all.

    Yet giving them guns at an early age is still frowned upon.

Although to be fair, who can really tell them apart anymore?

    We now have Americans who are fifteen years old (and it looks at this rate that number's going to just keep rising) who never knew a time when we weren't at war.

    You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

    Of COURSE ISIS is going to say the bombings are "ineffective," and of course the rabid right-wing partisans are going to believe them.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    If not for the midterms he'd still be playing golf. Obama's only does things for political reasons. Nothing else. Its why he's caught in so many lies and is held in such low even by congressmen from his own party.

    I'm sure there's a thread somewhere on this forum where that post would fit in. Just keep trying.

    Okay, I'm not really sure we're debating anything here. Which is fine. We don't all have to rabidly disagree about everything all the time.

    Thats it. And him trying to throw others under the bus is pathetic. Let him try, it just makes him look more removed from reality.
