    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.

    if you want someone with actual proven experience at turning around a government that is running a structural deficit - and turning it into a surplus - then you want Governor Daniels. Not Bozo the Clown.
    I was trying to remember what someone once said about Public Administration...something like "Public Administration is similar to Administration in all unimportant aspects."

    I'd vote for him. Not only is he charismatic, but he's a businessman. Although he was born into wealth and he did go bankrupt once, he has a bigger sense of fiscal responsibility than anyone on either side of the aisle. Quite frankly, the last thing America needs is another damned lawyer running things. That's the reason why Congress and the executive branch is chock full of fools - it's all people with law degrees, and not people with degrees in economics, finance, engineering, accounting, or other reasonable, rational, non-BS backgrounds.

    I think he would be the first to really go Trumanesque and make the "buck stop here". Anyone who pushes for accountability and economic viability is a plus in my book.

    Plus it helps that liberals here hate him. It's always fun to piss off liberals. It's like watching the fat kid pick up his ball and go home.

    Maybe if he wasn't such a complete idiot who was catering to the right-wing extremists.

    Gipper, I was willing to give him a chance and maybe would have thought on voting for him if he had not came out attacking Obama the way he has. Donald has shown his ass and could never run a country with that kind of temper and attitude

    Maybe that is the kind of attitude that we need. Do we really want someone that kowtow's to everyone at the slightest percieved insult?

    We already have a good leader that takes no mess. Obama does not play

    Why have Trump when we have Obama?

    By "mouth", I know you mean hair. I think it is trying to kill its host at this point.

    Sylph: "Has he helped American's understand that its racist to constantly question where your president was born in the United States, even though he has provided proof 5-7 times in regard to this completely irrelevant issue?"

    Sorry but that's your fantasy. I think Trump did raise the question about why President Obama didn't close the issue 2.5 years ago. As for providing proof 5-7 times, that's ludicrous. Providing proof to true believers and disciples such as yourself means making a bull**** statement. The goverment wouldn't accept my COLB for a passport so why should Americans accept a COLB for Barak Obama?
