    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.

    I have seen it so many times on this board from the usual predicatable suspects that i could write the darn posts for them.

    Some very wise poster hit it on the head: the right wing set this up so they could have it both ways and criticize Obama no matter what he did. For three years all we hear is the same tired old whine from the same tired old whiners ... "release the long form birth certificate". This despite a perfectly legal document which solves the matter. So now, because they have been such a major pain in the ass to the country, the White House does give them what they want.

    So now what it is the whine: "Obama is Turmp's bitch".

    I am tempted to say that anyone who follows that sort of hateful line has lost the last shred of their credibility and integrity. Sadly,in many cases, they had none to lose.
    That is just so inappropriate. Especially today.

    Perhaps somebody else said this, but is anybody really, legitimately suggesting that racism is a purely GOP/conservative/republican attribute?

    Why hassle this president about his birth certificate, but no other president...
    Have to do something since the press will do nothing. Want to compare the press on gas prices Bush to Obama?

    It's not settled - apparently some posters are here are ready to file criminal charges against him, although I'm still not sure what for.

    You're making sense. Stop it.

    Other times people say racist stuff, and they don't understand it's racist.

    I really don't think the president is racist... Do you honestly think he is racist? He was raised by his white mother, and he talks about her with love and respect. I think he honors her memory, and he hasn't created any racist policies.


    no I don't think he's racist. and in full disclosure, if Redress wanted to be honest, he would admit I said that numerous times during the span of time he is harrassing me over.
