    Its either one of two things. Go back and retake all lands from ISIS or turn our backs and never look back.

Remember, conservatives say we cannot afford anymore spending, so you need to go off that point as well.
    We have plenty of money if we simply eliminate every program that lacks a Constitutional basis. That is most of the current federal spending.

    But according to cons we can't afford the spending. So, are you saying we CAN afford it, thus back peddling from the con rhetoric, or are you still sticking to your guns we can't afford the spending? What are you saying here then?

    Ah, so now the Iraqis wouldn't let that go because it was Obama in the first place. The man's very existence led them to that stance.

    Well, that's a new one. While I do enjoy watching you guys twist yourselves into rhetorical pretzels to blame all of our problems on Obama, it's kinda getting boring.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Your opinion noted, but the reality is the GOP supports many of that federal spending.

    We can afford it. "I" never said we couldn't.

    So then the conservative rhetoric from the tea party about we can't afford the spending is BS then. Thank you for your confirmation.

    If it were my decision alone. I would drop it and leave. We trained and supplied them for 10 years. They cut and ran when faced with a determined force. Sucks to be them.

    Sorry if you thought I was in lock step with any politician on every issue.

    I am not surprised that you missed the point.

    Had Obama been a leader he could have negotiated a reasonable arrangement to secure peace in Iraq. But Obama has never been a leader. He is an agitator and propagandist.
