    He chose the latter approach.
    Now we are in to the “appropriate” “right thing” limiting free speech?

    Who said anything about limiting free speech? I asked this in the previous post. You must have missed it because I forgot the question mark. It was the first sentence.

    “It ain't his job yet. And the issue is not domestic, so it doesn't concern him until it becomes his job,” could be limiting. “He could be a jackass and start blathering on about the issue, which really isn't a US issue, or he can do the right thing and not speak out until it is appropriate,” is really limiting.

    You named yourself and everyone on the message board who has spoke on the issue, as it isn’t your job yet or their job yet. I really wish you would quit with the insults.

    *****

    That is how it starts with “liberals,” it isn’t our job yet, you put up a picture of Che, you vote for a dictator with articulated universal values that democracy demands, then you bring out the thought police telling us what is appropriate. And at every step of the way you say we are free.

    Where did you ever get that absurd notion?

    No, I quite clearly explained that OBAMA would be a jackass for speaking about the issue.

    Are you using the general "you" here? If so, please cite where these things were done.

    If not, please cite where I have done any of those things as well as back up your assertion that I am a "liberal".

    I think we should all shut the **** up about this and watch what happens when America does not mediate between opposing factions.

    Should be fun

    P.S. Maybe then people will stop questioning our motives when we "interfere"

    It seems more “liberal” than conservative for only a president elect Obama to be a jackass if he speaks, and not anyone else when it becomes their turn. Are you expecting him to be the last president elect? If not maybe you could explain the logic of what makes a jackass out of winning an election if they do not stop talking about the issues during that time frame of election to swearing the oath. It might be unwise to speak on an issue, but it being an automatic “jackass” gives me the hebegeebees.

    General YOUS... “Liberals!”

    There is only one president-elect at the moment that I am aware of. Are you aware of others at the moment who can speak on this particular Foriegn-relations issue so that I may criticize them if they do so in order to appease your sensibilities?

    No, but since that scenario cannot happen it does not relieve you of being a bigot against Obama or explain your logic with regard to the “jackass.”

    If anything Bush should start practicing to shut up. The idea of the old shutting up so the young can make their mark makes some courteous sense.

    Jimmy Cotter Pin can be a jackass for speaking because he had his shot and lost; Saddam came to power, Iran got French Whine to oppose him, and the national security advisor created the Mujahedeenyweenys so we could skip a year of getting embarrassed by the Russians at the Olympics. He was a loser who could not have the class to shut up. Clinton so far has shown more class than Cotter Pin.

    It makes sense for a former president to hold his tongue a little bit.

    WISDOM may keep an elected tongue conservative, only a “liberal” makes a jackass when elected.

    I'll be totally in awe of anyone who can actually fathom what the hell DC is blabbering about.

Obama may be President here in less than half a month, but right now its still Bush and still Bush's policies and there does not need to be a second voice there to muddle it up.
    I agree; it was bad enough for him to spout foreign policy as a candidate, no sense in doing any more as president elect. Besides, wont Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid be dictating foreign policy from now on?
