    Sorry, but I won't ride on sardine cans on wheels again if I can help it.

    A great President is one who can sell to Congress an agenda that benefits the American people.
    Conservatives ...the People are the rich ones, all other need not apply.
    Liberals ....the people are the poor, the hated ones, ect....
    Hey, fools... its all of the people, not just the chosen few !
    What we need is a unified and effective energy policy, something that Jimmy Carter advocated, but failed at.
    Of course one cannot blame the president for high petroleum costs, but this does not stop the fools, however.

    I miss his hugs and kind words of encouragement. I miss his warm breath in my ear. I miss exploring his abs and moving my fingers down to his furry patch.

    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.

    Which was why he caused the U.S. to invade Iraq and Afghanistan and held hands with Saudi royalty despite the fact that the 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Well, Kanye West is a person and a relatively significant public figure at that. I was just answering the question.
