    Its like you guys all read off the same script. Its almost verbatim the same post 5 or 6 times so far.

After all we know how the majority of the members of each party will answer.


    Quinnipiac Poll asked Would you say that Barack Obama - has strong leadership qualities or not?
    ……….Tot…….Rep……Dem……Ind
    Yes….46%.....18%.....82%.....41%
    No…..51%.....80%.....16%.....56%
    Fox Poll asked Do you think Barack Obama is a strong and decisive Leader?
    ……….Tot…….Rep…….Dem…….Ind
    Yes….47%......19%.......78%.....37%
    No…..51%......80%.......20%.....61%
    That is a nasty thing to say. True or not.

    Bush made it stronger for the US to be perceived weaker under the Obama administration.

    That's my opinion on it. But Obama went and tried to dictate our European policy so the claim has some legitimacy.

    Best approach ever. Reason with the reasonable but be ready to measure sticks with the unreasonable.

    Yeah. They probably thought that Bill Clinton was in charge when they hit the WTC in New York and the Pentagon in DC, right?

    I'd say the nadir was the second term of Bush. Perception of toughness has increased slightly since then.

    i'm fine with just being a country. the rest of the world certainly isn't "holding us in awe" right now, yet we're spending tons of money being the pro bono first world army.

    we can maintain a formidable peacetime arsenal on much less than what we're currently spending. then we can reallocate resources to address domestic issues.

    You are welcome.

    Come back after the 2016 election and we can talk about how and why the GOP failed.
