    Agreed, not funny at all. Hell, it wasn't just the Americans. There was supposed to be some liberation of Iraqis going on. Many innocent Iraqis died because our actions destabilized the region further and thrust them into what was tantamount to a civil war.

    It is funny that the current ISIS situation is being places squarely at the feet of Obama. Now people are acting like Bush is some sort of psychic for predicting that situation.
    Seriously, it was his dads administration that predicted it!! That is why in the first Gulf War they elected not to go for Bagdad and Saddam. It was his dad's administration that knew that entering Iraq would be a quagmire and lead into a world of trouble.

    Clinton will make the economy the central issue of her campaign. She will position herself as somewhat hawkish on foreign policy(more than most democrats, less than most republicans), socially liberal and trying to work to benefit both the middle class and business. That is completely lacking in specifics, and that will be interesting to see, but if she runs, I think all of those are safe to say. Where she will spend her time is on the economy, and she has already started on that. Her Daily Show appearance recently she hit that message hard, that when her and her husband where coming up, if you worked hard and where smart, you would get ahead, but now that is not necessarily the case. It is a solid message that if she can put planned initiatives with could be hard to beat.

    She will talk about foreign policy only as much as she has to. It isn't a winner for any candidate, with the public varying from disinterested to mostly against anything any candidate would do. She will have a stock answer for questions about Benghazi, basically stating that the procedures where flawed, they found those flaws and fixed it, and then move on to other questions.
    Hm. That might be it. The problems with a strategy of loose-hawkishness is that A) it makes her extremely vulnerable in the context of a Democrat primary, where half of the base already doesn't trust her and B) the attempt to keep foreign policy on the back-burner is likely to be overtaken by events. A 2016 that is marked by events similar to this year would make it about as difficult for candidates to refuse to address it as candidates in 2008 could avoid talking about the economic downturn.... I wrote that messed up, but you get the intent.

    President Obama wanted to keep ISIL on the backburner - wanting to do so doesn't ensure that you will be given the space to do so.

    Seriously, she sent Stevens practically unguarded into an Al Qaeda controlled city for the ribbon cutting ceremony at an American Cultural Center. That's just plain incompetent. Either that or she wanted him dead.

    Its really scary to think that woman could be elected President.......Women out there who know nothing about politics will vote for her just because she is a woman.

    Why not look forward and discuss the 22 Veterans still committing suicide every day due to the Rumsfeld/Cheney war of choice ?

    Don't talk about something you don't understand ... 'tis better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    So GBFAN doesn't think I understand 22 Veterans committing suicide every day-
    and tells me to keep my mouth shut and be thought a fool rather than open it and remove all doubt.
    I believe taking my parents to sick-call for 40 years in the VA makes me well qualified on the subject .

    If there were a scandal, perhaps. To date, however, there is no scandal, just people that wish there was....

    That ship has sailed. Everyone's minds are already made up.

    Republicans/conservatives arent going to change their minds, and neither are Democrats/liberals.

    Hmm...which women are those? Are there that many women that know nothing about politics? Maybe all the men that know nothing about politics will vote for the male Republican (likely) candidate and hey....you'll still win.
