Of all the responsibilities this may be the most important to be expected of a president.What qualifies each candidate to be commander in chief?
sort by best latest
I agree many things are taken into consideration when electing a president but my question is directed at this particular subject.
If you research the issue you will find that most of Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh talking points are false.
Recent investigative reports found that the Republicans cut funding for security in Benghazi! Please quit blaming Hillary, and the conspiracy accusations. That incident has been investigated to death and Hillary was found 'not at fault'.
So what do you think qualifies Trump to be commander in chief?
First, he wants to build a border to protect us at home. He is interested in protecting the country from the Muslim Terrorists, while his opponents want to bring unvetted immigrants into the country. He knows how to find the best people to do the job
The bad people in this world respect only one thing and that is Power. They have taken advantage of leaders that want to handle things softly. That dn mean war, what it means is to project a powerful image, instead of a meek wishy washy one.
I would like to see a single reference to Hillary stating clearly that the USA is the greatest country on earth. I thought she thought that America is the cause of all the problems in the world, at least that is how she acts. Please reference.
Eric, you must not have caught her speech on Foreign Affairs. She clearly stated that the USA is the greatest force on earth, and that she thinks "make America great again" is an oxymoron. We are already great!
I agree 100 percent with bradmaster0Cal that an Image of strength is necessary.Erick Diercker We don’t call the country we love a disaster or a laughing stock. We know America already is the greatest country on Earth.First rally w Obama clear enough?
None of what you say in your comment is based on fact. I dn have enuf chars.
The US cn by def go bankrupt, but $20 trillion in debt is bankrupt. Priv sec BR is a tax method, not a failure.Trump came back up, the US only goes deeper in debt
Mio please clarify that. I don't get your reference.
You guys do realize that the US military is already the biggest show of strength on this planet? Check the FACTS on the military budget.
Interesting. Vietnam has about 5 million folk available as soldiers. China about 3 million. US a bit over 1 million. Just a thought for comparison. US also has a strong anti-military contingent detracting from the actual use of our military.
Are you joking? We have ONE button that will utterly annihilate the entire planet 5 times over! Are you ignorant of the MIGHT of the US military???? Try serving on ONE nuclear submarine and say that again!
Eric Dierker , Clarifying, On her first joint campaign rally with Obama, Hillary said what I posted before.I'm sure if i look more I'll find more instances where she said America greatest country in the world.
Nope Yassarian, a weapon that is totally impractical to use and has not been used in over 65 years does not make might. Boots on the ground is might. And that requires a willingness to use it, which Hillary does not possess.
Eric, you could not be more wrong about that. We are not only ready, willing, and able to put boots on the ground anywhere in the world, we have the technology to defeat any enemy WITHOUT boots on the ground. And it will be an agreement of many first
