    That's what the Left thought when they voted him in. Matthews even got a tingle up his leg.

    Not sure that was a good thing.

    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.

    What job? Spending lots of lives and money for nothing? Ok. Not something I'd brag about if I were you.

    And you know that you're talking out of your ass too. You may not have liked Bush, and some in the ME either.....but they sure as **** respected him because when he took action he was decisive and they knew he meant business. They feared Bush, they don't fear Obama at all.

    Lately UN warned US to not intervene without their authorization. They called it illegal without Security Council approval.

    Obama got four people killed in Benghazi, I wonder how many he'll leave behind this time.

    Obama doesn't have UN support, yet Assad's friend John Kerry says we'll get Congressional approval. Why doesn't John Kerry have another dinner with Assad, and straighten this all out?

    Well I dislike the choices, but I voted no. The pretentious ideas the public holds with respect to the decision process regarding Syria is nothing short of short sighted and, unfortunately, ignorant. This stems largely as a failure of our educational system to explain the complex subject of international relations. The irony here is had President Obama handled things in any other conceivable way, the criticism would remain the same, because it is hollow, media driven, partisan, and ideologically based. This is not to say he is not to be criticized, for he certainly should be in many regards, perhaps even Syria, though to presume we have information enough to criticize his decision making beyond healthy skepticism at this point is arrogant. Having worked in the intelligence community for many years, the public is often laughed at behind closed doors, particularly by those in the field, for the things they say regarding international policy. I'm not a proponent of that behavior, but it is certainly a testament to the political society of it all.
    Be skeptical of anyone who wears a political label - party or ideology - with pride. Most of our problems are because people love to "debate" (it isn't debate, but they pretend it is), but are not interested in developing solutions. Solutions require empathy, thought, and compromise, and most folks aren't interested.

    Did Bush ever have to stare down the Russian Navy? Over nothing?

    Did you look at this graphic? Don't count your chickens...this thing is just getting started.
