    Obama didn't invent the deficit and the debt.

    Can you please tell me what liberal things he's done that you're so mad about, so I can be happy about it.

    Obama isn't radical... that's just what you want him to be, and what the Republicans need him to be.

    If Obama was as radical as you and other right wingers keep insisting he is he would have:

    Pulled the troops out of Afghanistan
    Made medicare available for all.
    Ended the drug war.
    Cut the defence budget in half
    Turned Dick Cheney over to the Hague.

    But in reality America is the same old Kentucky fried country it's always been.

    Props to you then. The 82nd own our battle space, and we have more than our fair share of fobets who are super hooah about being airborne, but aren't even jump qualified. A good portion of the infantry are in the first years of their contract and only have a few jumps they performed for qualification, but to hear them talk you would think they were IronMan.

    Having said that, we were just on a build mission in an aria which hasn't seen piece since before the Russians invaded, and the 82nd were on their game. We had 3 platoons of 82nd securing the perimeter for our squad of engineers. I had eyes on a hadji mortar team and watched the 82nd in action. When the 82nd is good, they're good.

    I actually chuckled a bit when I read this thread. Thank you NP and Empirica.

    You hold out both hands palms up and someone places turd A in one hand and turd B in the other hand and then asks you which one you like the most. Apparently you, NP, would seriously consider both turds and then pick one over the other. Brilliant!

    Bigger margin than I thought there would be voting for Obama among the forum veterans.

    Still, likely not representative of the military on the whole.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Possibly, still the majority of post 9/11 vets did not think the Iraq war was worth it, and Obama ended the Iraq war when Romney thought we should stay, Obama helped get Veteran's benefits increased, and he ended the the stop loss policy which was sending troops on repeated tours, some as many as seven with little time between.
