Ryan knows budgets. I rarely hear him talk about other issues. Not sure he is really informed not hem. He is not Presidential timber. But one thing our current president has proved is that qualifications do not matter. Everyone compares him to Carter. But Carter had been a governor and, before that, had been second in command on a nuclear submarine. He had qualifications and no judgment. Obama has neither. Ryan is a fiscal conservative, but I doubt that he is any other kind of conservative.
targeted? these guys are in the field. not hiding behind civilians. they should be carpet bombing these murderers.
leading form behind as a phrase is counter intuitive. yeah, that's it. Obama is counter-intuitive.
Watergate was just stupid. With the election in his hip pocket Nixon sticks his nose in a meat grinder. Politicians do stuff like this all the time. a President can be forced to resign because of some chintzy break-in but he cannot when he orders Departments of the government to ignore the laws he took an oath of office to uphold. No consistency anywhere.

yes he is a hero. I know that story and it is a really inspiring one. but unfortunately, he has turned into a rotten Senator. and his claims to conservatism are laughable. neo conservatism, maybe, but we know what neoconservatives are: pro Viet Nam Democrats who were chaired out of the party. I would not call him a wolf in sheep's clothing, because conservatives are not sheep. But he is not what he claims to be.
I realize that Reagan spent the Russians into the ground. They could not keep up the pace and he knew it. Unions. My God.
it was never our business to spread democracy. when neocons made this claim, our antennae should have gone up instantly. they were doing the work of a higher power. Bush was a nice guy, and good after 9/11, but essentially a bad president. A very bad REPUBLICAN president. He spent more than God. It is real;y ridiculous to defend him just because he is not a Democrat. If I were a Republican candidate I would be running against Obama and Bush
the worst thing this country ever did was depose sad am. as horrible a she was, he was doing our work, and he was protecting minorities (except for Kurds, unfortunately). He was bedeviling shiites and challenging Iran. So what do we do? March in there and kill him. None of this would be happening now if we had just left bad enough alone.
I personally do not carek about dictators in the middle east. that is all they have ever had and their tolerance for democracy is low. I do care about genocidal anti Christian, anti anything Islamists, though. We should put our air force at the disposal of the Iraqis and Kurds. And I would not mind them extending their raids into Syria. It is time. The islamists have foolishly taken the field. they are much easier targets now. this is the time to strike. and I think it can be done with air power and some Kurd and Iraqi and Syrian support.
