    A republic is supposed to be just the opposite of a monarchy.

    A republic is a form of government in which affairs of state are a "public matter" (Latin: res publica), not the private concern of the rulers, in which public offices are subsequently appointed or elected rather than privately accommodated, i.e. through inheritance or divine mandate. In modern times, the common definition of a republic is a government which excludes a monarch.

    A republic is the exact opposite of what we have, but that which we need to return to.

Obama then rattles his saber and says he can and will do it alone and Kerry comes along and gives the impression the missiles are just about on the way. Then Obama says never mind, I think I'll take this to congress when they get back from recess, no worry, no hurry. Now the pro gov forces in Syria are dancing in the streets and Iran is ramping up its nuke program and laughing at America, nice work Obama.

    I don't know why you people care about what other countries think of us anyway. That's the problem. All of you guys on here that are worried about what other countries think of us need to remember the lesson your Mommy's taught you. Remember, the whole "walk away unless they hit you" lesson? China is the only country in the world right now that would have even a long shot of hanging with us in a war. The rest of them, despite the posturing and bloviation, know that we would smoke them in a hot minute if we wanted to. There's no doubt in anyone's mind that we have the most technologically advanced and well trained military in the world. On the other hand, most of you on this thread love to volunteer guys like me to go over show these lowly Middle East countries who's boss. If you are so worried about it, strap some boots on and pick up a rifle. If not, shut up and color. Let the grown ups worry about the wars. Go worry about staying employed, the next local election, etc. There are far more important things facing our country right now that what Syria or any other dirt poor Arab nation thinks of us.

    Its refreshing to see a President that isn't a cowboy and understands the proper steps that should be taken. We know what happened the last time a couple of people decided to go attack a country....we are still paying for that one today.

    This is a loaded question intended to make Obama look like even more of a bad guy than he already is. Yes, he looks like a spineless and indecisive leader, but that doesn't make America look weak. We could demolish the earth 15 times over with our nuclear arsenal if we so desired, so how can anybody call the US weak?

    You're referring to Al Qaeda, of course. And no, Obama isn't a cowboy. They don't make hats that small for adults, anyway.

    Don't you think 4 years and 8 months is long enough ?

    I came to the conclusion that the job of POTUS was bigger than Obama in less than six months after Obama took the oath of office twice in January of 2009.

    I'm pretty sure Obama realised the same thing three months before I did.

    LOL....we already had one President who called himself "The decider" who didn't understand the role of the President. Tough talk an stupidity only get you so far. Thank God we have a President who understands and who is restoring honor and integrity to the whitehouse.

    Are you saying when Obama violated the War Powers Act when he committed the U.S. military to take out the Qaddafi regime in Libya was just on the job training for Obama ? That Obama is allowed to make mistakes or ignore the Constitution and is exempt to be held accountable ?
