    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Are you saying that the man isn't responsible for the decisions he makes....or doesn't make?

    It was not effective. And those same advisors have given the dude some more advice. Fortunately, the mistake was not something that committed US to years of bull**** in another ME nation.

    Horrible, isn't it?!
    I love these passive attitudes towards our current POTUS asking to start a war. I'm sure Bush didn't get the same treatment even though he did the exact same thing. Of course, you guys think that shooting a few cruise missiles and maybe dropping a bomb or two will work great. Kinda like it did in Libya. Oh yeah, they overthrew our embassy and killed the ambassador. Or, how about like when Clinton was dropping cruise missiles on every Muslim he could find? Oh yeah, they got tired of it and flew a plane into the WTC. Or how about let's try a limited invasion of special troops so as not to cause too big a stir but to get the point across like Clinton did? Oh yeah, Somalia didn't work out that great. It's all or nothing guys with nothing being the preferred method. Leave these people to themselves. No country will ever value democracy when they don't shed their own blood for it. The rebels over there are not broken. The Arab states around them have not stretched themselves thin yet. There are still many measures the Syrian resistance could take before they need the "Zionist's" to come over.

    Not everywhere is like that is it? I mean I could perhaps relate to some families in the outer suburbs whom are at feuds with one another behaving like that. But you say all are blood feuding hill billies?

    Actually, this current president EPITOMIZES "tough talk and stupidity".

    As in, hey...Mr "red line"...what happened back in march? Who was that nabbed with Sarin in June? Who exactly are you in bed with in Syria? With your 'red line' shattered, what exactly is your 'response'? WHy did you run around acting like a badass, right up until the UK bailed on you?

    no...Obama isnt 'wise'. He doesnt understand honor and integrity. He is a loudmouth douchebag. He is a miserable failed 'leader'. He is praying for someone to bail him out of the corner he has painted himself into. Luckily though, no matter what Obama does, he will always have those who blindly support him at all cost.

    Hows that transparency thing working out for you? You a big fan of Bush's policies...you know...all the ones Obama is still following or expanding? Loving the drones? Loving the Patriot Act and the expansion of the NSA?

    Stay classy, DD...

    I disagree with the premise that lobbing a couple of cruise missiles makes the US look "strong".

    That's BS neocon validation for constant military action. Nobody thought the US was "strong" under Bush. They saw the US as over extended.

    I'm against any military intervention in Syria.

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.
    Where is neither, this is just another hyperbolic hate piece option?

    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.

    Well, I've been saying plenty of times.
    Syria and Iraq may look both as same dirty jobs but at least Bush didn't make the world to laugh at him (he took everyone with him). He was criticized a lot but no one dared to laugh at him, not even Russia.

    Obama is so another picture.
