    Point being, you can't know what he imagines himself to be. Until you can quote him actually saying that, it is only your opinion.

    Yes it is. It's my opinion. Unfortunately, I rarely wrong. We will still have a lot of problems with our president. But it's also, just my opinion.

    One thing that not only could, but has gone wrong is that a majority of the voters in the poll have said that Obama is not a good president.

    Which means that now they are going to have to decide what they are going to do about that since he is going to be in the White House until January 2017 unless something happens to change that.

    The voters can't do anything about it. Zero. They had the chance to do something about it in the 2012 election and they made their choice. Enjoy...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    .



    That was the point that I was trying to make, the thread is a total waste of time.

    Like a lot of threads on this website.

    The voters will have another chance in 2016, it will be interesting to see who they put in the White House.

    Their chance of doing something about that has come went, that time was November 2012. Obama was a very vulnerable sitting president, but when the one chosen to run against him is considered the worst worst candidate, the least worst candidate wins although he is still a bad president. Until the two major parties either start nominating good candidates so we can have a good president or until the electorate finally see through the spiel of the two major parties when they say a vote for a third party candidate is a wasted vote, because he can't win. We will always have a mediocre president running this country.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    But, as much as the USSR being relatively backward and low-tech compared to Silicon Valley and Western Washington, energy problems are what I believe mostly sunk the Soviets. Falling prices globally and more difficulty extracting what was left. Again, technology.
    It is a very good source, balances the moves by Reagan, which did in fact contribute to the fall of the USSR.
    But not just that - the factors you listed.....and this little nugget i found while scanning your original source:
    Particularly effective, though with unintended long-term side effects, was the Reagan administration’s support for the mujahideen (holy warriors) that were fighting against the Soviet forces in Afghanistan
    Soon after the invasion, Osama bin Laden traveled to Afghanistan and helped organize Arab mujahadeen.
    when his partner (Azzam) was killed:
    Nonetheless, bin Laden was free to take full control of MAK, laying groundwork for Al-Qaeda. Under guidance of Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, bin Laden became more radical.
    Planning of the September 11 attacks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    so not to make too much of this, but arming up the mujahideen, indirectly led to the formation of AQ, and 9-11.

    Credit also has to go to Reagan though, for "outspending" the USSR - your source does mention these points.

    Like most world history, events intertwine to create new parameters.

    My guess, another lesser of two evil candidate which is the least worst candidate and another bad president.

    Regarding the president, there's not much to be done. He's there for 3 more years. Think of that a minute. Three more years of seemingly endless bitching...
