    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.

    Sorry Dana

    The point is Bush and Cheny were blamed. Now with Obama the silence is noticable. You can deny the double standard but it is there.

    You've been accusing the media for being liberal repeatedly. I don't see what's new and why you'd be surprised. And like I said, if you actually look around you WILL find instances of Obama being blamed for gas prices.

    I miss Bill Clinton. Not only was he smooth like Bush was, Republicans actually clapped when he said he would raise taxes on rich people. Hell even Republicans miss Clinton. We need about 8 years of Clinton stat.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Glenn Beck just did a special on gas prices. Now, if anyone was going to work it back to how Obama's people are moving behind this, it's Beck - there are plenty of quotes by the President and his team about the necessity of high energy prices, high gas prices, etc. of the type which Beck jumps on.


    Beck blames Ben Bernanke.

I think the GOP leaders wanted to raid our treasury and resources on behalf of their corporate campaign contributors and gave GW all these stupid explanations on why this would be good for the country and GW just went along with them not really knowing any better.

    At least I hope that was the case. Otherwise, he's going to have to burn in hell for all the things that happened on his watch.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    All US presidents have been awful since at least Abraham Lincoln.
