    Really? Then how did we learn about these things?
    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.

    What country were you living in? Without any details, I knew what 3 of these 4 things were. These were all over the news.

    These made the news and were investigated ad nauseum. And they were quite overstated like the wording you used. Where were you?

    Ya'll are finally in agreement that Obama's mentor for 20 years is a racist. Also, he's close friends with domestic terrorists?

    Nope. Over stated again. You just keep doing it. I doesn't change anything.

    Oh I'm sure the media will come up with something to smear Gingrich. Many media outlets exist to protect Obama and attack his opposition.

    The benefit of being in the public eye for so long is that lots of the skeletons are already out of the closet. Of course, there's no reason not to try to smear a spouse or young-adult kids.

    Do you have anything to add?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
