          anything the great wise Obama does is not only okay, but brilliant! roll
            dontcha know??!   He does all those things, yes, with a straight face.   But I have noticed that he quite often does NOT look ya in the eye.  Very telling.    Hillary Clinton does the same thing, only better (the avoidance of eye contact).   Wonder which one learned it from  the other.........

            Anyone who ranted about military actions previous to this administration but will allow anything to happen in this one without a peep.

              And who would that be?  I have yet to hear anyone I know who opposed the invasion of Iraq say that they currently support the invasion of any other country.  So, who?

                    Got amnesia do you kitty kat?

                    Iraq happens and it's wars not paid for.
                    There has already been someone on this thread try to shift the conversation around to Romney.
                    I am talking about why was it a big deal for George Bush to get into action......and theoretically not pay for it....but we now have this administration sabre rattling towards Iran and Syria and I have not seen one LETTER in opposition from any journalists or politicians on the same side of the aisle who scram about the cost every time you money budgets or money and get them with a hundred yards of a microphone..
                    Now please stop insulting my intelligence by pretending you have never seen or heard or maybe even participated in such activities.

                  156 members of Congress voted against Iraq in 2002 (23 Senators and 133 Representatives). Of those 156 members, there were 147 Democrats, 7 Republicans, and 2 Independents. Those 147 Democrats tend to be progressives (as in the farthest to the left). They for the most part, like Progressive citizens, oppose war period. They opposed Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, as well as all the drones flying over half of the world, and they will oppose wars with Iran, Syria, or anybody else, absent an extremely good reason.

                  You seem to be accusing people of flip-flopping, though, without any actual flip-flopping identified it's a bit of a hollow claim. And considering it is people over on the right who don't seem to oppose war for ANY reason I don't know why you're complaining about the side that does at least have some opposition.

          I was being facetious! I am against any war, since it brings us nothing but our kids home in body bags and debts and the treat against us is minute. I know they are flinging around the words, but you can't blame this one on Obama. He is trying to tone down Israel who is biting at the bit, to start a war. Brings to mind the old saying "lose lips sink ships"!

          And Bush did do it!

            Oh well I was aware you can't blame Obama.
            Why would anyone try and do that?

            As for Israel what do you do when the little guy with the WalMart jacket in Iran says he is going to vaporize you once they get their nuke?

              You keep doing what you are doing! You use diplomacy and sanctions. And you let them keep talking because eventually their own people will drag them down, because I really don't think people as smart and educated as Iranians do not realize an attack would probably mean the Ancient land of Persia would wind up being a glass bowl.

                    A revolt among the Iranian people was violently put down by the Revolutionary Guard and the Iranian government.  It was in some of the papers.

        Really?  GWB is the sole culprit? Congress has authorized and re-authorized funding for the Iraq and Afghan wars since 2001 but they bare no responsibility, even when the Democrats held the reins? Even while Obama has been POTUS?  Even while all other aspects of government has run up 5 times the debt of the Bush years?  Really? 

        Aren't we supposed to be enjoying the vast sums of money freed up by the end of the Iraq war?  Isn't that how we are to pay for the new green economy?  Isn't that what Obama has promised?  Really, GWB is the villain here.

        A war with Iran is inevitable and not because Mitt Romney, whoever he is, wants it.  War with Iran will come for two reasons. One, the squandered opportunity that was Iran's brief "green" revolution in 2009/10, a genuine people's revolt that Obama ignored.  Two, the direction mapped out by the Iranian government since 1979.

      So this is a thread blaming the Obama administration for two wars that he has actually not started yet...

      You guys are very funny.

        Barefootfaeposted 5 years agoin reply to this

        Actually it's not blaming...
        It's trying to see how many will allow him to do it without raising so much as a tiny finger against it.
        Which will be most of them. Indoctrination.

          It depends, are we going to declare "mission accomplished" seven years before the war actually ends?

      I haven't heard anything. I do know that many, many politicians on the right want to go to war with Iran. Romney certainly seemed to want to.

            whoisit,

            Could this be a war for oil?  That's what Bush was blamed for, among countless other things. . .  How is the intelligence?  Is Obama lying about our intelligence?  Isn't that what liberals accuse Bush of doing?
