    A violent idiot is the last thing we need. It would be great to stop the droning and bombing, too. But more invasions and attacking more countries? Hell no.

    What is he supposed to act like? A lot of people didn't think Lincoln acted like a very good commander in chief, either. I guess that just goes with the territory.

    I think we need someone who will roll up there sleeves and deal with Russia, Ukraine, the Mid-East, ISIS and North Africa. Each one of these areas plus a few other issues like Domestic Terrorism in Europe are some of Obama's failures. Foreign Policy used to be his strong suit. Not anymore!

    How many of you agree with me that we need a war-hawk as President? And no. I am not talking about Hillary.
    Not only no but **** no.Are you ****en insane? I am not eager for our service men to go die for citizens of other countries, nor am I eager for our tax dollars to be wasted on those other countries.

    Our foreign policy should be is we leave you alone and if you **** with us then we will bomb you into kingdom come and leave.No more of this lets rebuild countries that attack us nonsense.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I don't know that a “war hawk” is exactly what we need, but I think t is very clear that the next President needs to be someone who possesses a degree of competence and expertise on how to conduct a war, along with a measure of courage, that Obama very clearly lacks. The situation in the Middle East and the threat that it poses to our nation and our interests, is not something that is going to be safely or properly managed in the cowardly, wishy-washy way that Obama has so far mismanaged it. It's probably going to take some very heavy-handed use of our military resources, directed by a leader who has the courage and the competence to use them correctly.

    also, i have a proposal. back in the middle ages, the king and noblemen led the troops into battle. perhaps we should return to that way of doing things. also, wartime tax rates should be in effect whenever we are at war.
    America does not have kings or noblemen. That's part of the European system that was soundly rejected by those who founded this country. “All men are created equal…” was specifically, a rejection of the idea, still observed in much of Europe, that holds some men to be superior to others simply for having been born into higher levels of nobility/royalty.

    Sorry but if you can't determine a good commander in chief from a bad one, no explaining from me will help you. From your comment all past presidents were all excellent commanders in chiefs.

    Yeppers, that's the ticket all right. Obama is on record as giving Iran the green light to make nukes. In his famous Madeup speech, he clearly said, "Go ahead, Iran, we're with you in your quest for a nuclear bomb." Again, in his Neversaid it speech, "Hey, Europe, let's lift those sanctions and let our buddy, Putin, have his way with Ukraine."

    I think I read it in the World Nut Daily, or somewhere like that.
