    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.

    The severe recession Obama inherited wasn't created overnight and it will not completely recover overnight. We have ignored our major problems such as the highest healthcare costs in the world, peak oil, and tax cuts for the rich for decades and we are feeling the effects of it on our economy.

    I've not seen evidence of Iamitter's conservative handicap really.

    I know this will result in a slew of insults for my ideological stand point, but....

    those are the days the welfare/SSI checks are received/deposited/cashed. Also, the days food stamp cards are re-upped.
