    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    To be fair, it's been claimed that one of Kerry's mistakes (besides being godawful uncharismatic and having a face that makes you want to start a prozac habit) is that he didn't proactively take on the swiftboat idiocy. Hysterically, he believed that if he ignored idiocy, it would be like ignoring an internet troll, thus depriving them of their source of power and making them go away. Didn't quite turn out that way.

    See how stupid that sounds? thats what you all sound like in a nutshell, the dood is black get the **** over it for the love of god.
    I agree that your explaination is indeed stupid just like you wanted it to be.

    But I strongly disagree that the person you aimed your vitriol at sounds the same. You are confusing apples with cinderblocks. Don't chip your tooth and that nice piece of grey pie.

    Race can be a part of this issue. It does not mean it is the enitire issue ON EITHER SIDE. To ignore that is simply to ignore the totality of what we have seen in the birther movement.

    Please show me where he called you a racist, said his grandmother was a racist and then accused typical white people of sharing his grandmother's racism.

    He said, his grandmothers irrational fear of white people was typical for white people. Can't really get around that one now can we?
    Nope. He didn't say that either. His grandmother's irrational fear is her own fear. He said that the typical white person has "a reaction that's been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way" - whether the reactions were the same as his grandmother's he did not say.

    Now, where did he accuse you and all white people of being racists?

    I'm pretty surprised he's done this. Just shows that when Trump took hold of it, it became mainstream. If he was ever going to do it, he should have done it a long time ago. Indecisive. Knee-jerk. Not very leader-like, in my opinion. The strongest position would have been to do nothing. Personally? I think it harmed the office of the presidency.

    Obama made a racist statement, and almost 4 years ago I made comments on it. now you want to hurl personal attacks at me. Sorry I insulted your president.
    I am long over it. It is perfectly fair to point out that you used to be one who brought up race alot, and are now bitching about others bringing up race.
