What does this mean?I don't think a "rally around the flag" moment constituents a real change however.
You can find people that believe anything. This doesn't mean anything.I agree, my point is that there are those in the opposition party (for lack of a better term) that would probably see them as a way to eliminate the hardliners and change their overall policies to get them lifted.
I'm a communist. I don't advocate what the President advocates. I'm merely putting their actions into context and attempting to dispel the "Obama's a weakling" crap that conservatives are trying to spew.Perhaps this was a poor choice of words. What I meant was what you were advocating, which is the same as the President I suppose.
This has nothing to do with "looking weak". And besides, danarhea is absolutely correct; we all saw what happened the last time the US tried to "play a strong hand" in Iran.I don't doubt they have a lot of influence, I am just saying the way to change that is arguably not to look even more weak and cave in terms in sanctions.
