    Should Obama butt in changing the name of the Washington Redskins?

    I am thinking we have enough problems facing this country so should the President butt in?

    What problem should he work on instead?

    Not that I disagree with you. I was just curious how you would like the extra hours he picks up to be utilized.





    Be careful what you wish for.

    Who said he was going to butt in? And what's it to you? Are you a skins fan? Why are you butting into the affairs of the team and fans and the President?
    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.

    He shouldn't butt in and actually make them change the name, but I don't mind that he voiced his own opinion about it.

    Yeah, Obama has already butted in with his opinion that the Redskins should change their names.

    I'm going to support the new name, the Washington Tea Party Animals.

    It's America, he's free to say as he wants.

    When you're getting creamed on a screw-up of your own making, by all means come up with this straw man thread.
    As for tonight's NFL game, I can still hear Rush singing "Gino the magic Negro".

    He said if he was the owner he could consider changing the name. He never said he was going force the Redskins to change their name. Invalid poll made by a partisan who just hates anything done by a democrat.
