    Obama slaamed it out of the park on AIPAC speech and steals another talking point from under right wing nut talking heads, it's really not fair.

      OBAMA IS A CHICKENHAWK.

      Am I living in bizarro world? The guy never served in a war, and he's started numerous.

      That's THE DEFINITION of a chicken hawk.

      Jeezus f***ing christ, people.

      The only NON-chickenhawk available is Ron Paul: He's not a chicken (he actually f'ing served) and he's not a hawk (he relentlessly campaigns for peace).

            No, you guys are right. Obama gets the credit for ending things that were already set to end, as well as credit for killing Osama, but we won't give him any credit for starting anything, unless we decide later that it was a good thing.

              Already set to end?  lol  They were already set to begin by Dubya and his cohorts even before 911.  Remember the posters depicting the mobile chemical weapons labs flashed across TV and pointed to as a reason to attack Iraq?  They never existed.  HMMM.  If you are so astute as to know when the republicans were going to end these wars, then perhaps you know who actually had these posters made up.  WMD's my asp!  lol

              This is amazing.

              I used to talk to my friends about how inconsistent conservatives were.

              Now I'm having the full brunt of liberal idiocy thrown at me.

              It's unbelievable the obvious number of hoops that these people have to jump through to claim that they're consistent.

        I agree with that last sentence, and agree totally with Ron Paul's assessment of this situation with Iran.

        We have Arab and Persian citizens too...do they not matter?

        Somehow, we must break free of the Zionist stranglehold.

        "When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu makes his annual state visit this week to Washington he will be surrounded by sycophants and loyal political allies prepared to respond to his every demand.

        I speak not of the Prime Minister’s traveling companions from Tel Aviv, but of the welcoming community of American politicians, fawning pro-Israel US media stars, and brain-washed interfaith-obsessed religious leaders, far right and mainstream, who have willingly traded their stewardship of the American Soul for a bowl of interfaith Zionist porridge."--Gordon Duff

      Talking is how Obama got the job, but in office he didn't do his job. So I guess if you want someone that talks good, then he is already in the presidency. But if you want a president that walks the talk then Obama is not the one.

      It reminds me of the old Charlie the Tuna TV ads.

        Here's what Veterans Today said:

        ■War is off the table
        ■Sanctions have to be allowed to go forward
        ■Loose talk about war is unacceptable
        ■No attacks are planned or prepared for

        "We thank President Obama for what seems to be “double talk” and hope we saw the signs of intellect, honor and judgement, albeit hidden, among his worlds of confusion, disinformation and dishonor."

        With all that butt-kissing and fawning at King Bibis feet...

        Obama might still be the person I intuit.

        Cause god knows, if Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Cantor, or half the Congress was pres, we'd already be at war.

          I am sorry but I have no idea what was your point.
          If you don't want wars, then you have to win the wars that you get into or the next war is just a matter of time.

          The US hasn't totally won a war, so there was always a next war.
          Yes, there have been some military victories but they were followed by liberal politicians giving away the farm.

            Implications: Don't blame Obama for continuing on a path previously started.

            My response:
            "Oh, so if I murder someone in Japan, then it's ok for Obama to do so 5 years later?"

            Implication: Murder is wrong, and you can't defend it no matter. Your argument is inconsistent.

              Randy Godwinposted 5 years agoin reply to this

              And your argument is senseless.  What wars did Obama start, I'm asking you again?

              You listed the Iraq War which you know Obama did not start.  The rest of your list contains no war he stared either, unless you consider limited military actions as such.   

              No, your comparison of a murder to "wars" is inconsistent and a mistake on your part.  Either suck it up and admit you misspoke or continue to justify your statement.  I'm beginning to wish Paul was elected so we could see just how perfect he would be as POTUS, and so you would understand he could not do anything he wanted to as our highest ranking government official. 

              No chance of this happening, of course, but this is actually good for you.  You will continue to tout him as the end-all possible savior of the country with no risk of it ever happening.  I would love to see your excuses as to why he didn't solve all of our problems in a short time using some thus far, unexplained means not available to any previous president.

              It's easy to complain when your guy will never have a chance to prove you wrong. lol

Pakistan was no invasion... Crazy. Iran is not a war it's just economic sanctions not an act of war America currently has about 15 nations under economic sanctions and will probably never got to war with any of them. He started no wars.
