    exhibit A as to why we need to elect McCain

    btw, Putin will eat Obama's lunch. The only thing most leaders respect is negotiating from a position of strength. They dont give a crap how "popular" someone is or how great of an "orator" someone is. Obama is going to cut defense spending in half and has stated very cavalier like that he would meet with anyone and everyone without preconditions.

    Wow, that article was an exercise in hyperbole and hubris, how dare the United States honor its own sovereignty before the ill-informed opinions of Europe.

    It amuses me how he considers the USA the leader of the free world; why does he want us to lead it if he thinks we are so incompetent?

    We have had Canadian on here all the time saying virtually the same things-what else would you expect from European socialists who think Chamberlin was right after all.

    I have a better idea that would have more impact.

    Why don't we say to the rest of the world,"Hey do it our way or we will kill you!"?

    I mean, why not. The rest of the World seems to think we give a flying rat's rear end who they think we should elect. God these people are some of the most asinine people on the planet.

    I'm sure many around the world would love to have an appeaser leading the US since what Jimmy Carter?

    Has it occurred to them that we've elected Dem presidents in the past (not to mention the current Dem-controlled Congress) without their encouragement, help, or threats?

    Putin has already eaten President Bush's lunch over the whole Georgia fiasco, with Obama he will eat his lunch, turn over the dinner table, and kick the dog on the way out. Obama is not a man of strength at all.

    Curious as to how Putin has "Eaten' Bush's lunch" on the Georgia thing. Bush has put it in Putin's face with proceeding with the missile defense program in Europe. To me it simply looks like Putin is throwing a tantrum over it.

    Georgia was a staunch ally of America on the war in terror in Iraq. When Putin invaded Georgia, we sat by and did nothing. The Georgians were under the impression that we would help them against Russian aggression. Now the President did get the better of Putin on the Ukraine, but Georgia which is a democracy is now under control of the Russians. I guess I see the Ukraine and Georgia as two different issues. Hopefully the US at least sends in some special forces unit to try and help the Georgians defend themselves since it is becoming evident that we will not send in our military to act as peacekeepers.

    I see what you mean. Though, I'm not sure what we could have done without risking a large scale military offensive against the Russians.

    US is sending aid and the Russians are watching as we do, we have ships in the region so I would not say we are doing nothing. We are not going to send in combat troops at this stage.

    The machismo culture among conservatives is really interesting. I wonder if it has to do with the distaste among conservatives for all the closet gay people in the Republican party.

    “closet gay people” is that political correctness for a liberal to use? I guess you use race, sexual orientation or sexism when it suits your needs.

    Actually that is a politically correct term. It refers to homosexuals who hide from the world their true selves. This is very prominent among conservatives and Republicans. Examples being Mark Folley, Larry Craig, and Ted Haggard.

    So closet gay is acceptable, I'll be sure to mark that down? Is flaming also acceptable? :laugh2:

    I don't know if that's a contributing factor or not. As a conservative myself, I can tell you that for me, it has more to do with seeing 40 years of exactly how Russia acts if you give them 2 extra inches of rope. I'm in favor of tightening the nose on the lead myself.

    I know thats probably viewed as very predictable. I don't know, I guess it could be my gay tendancies surfacing. I've never really given it that much thought to be honest.

    :rolleyes:
