This is not only for those in our community who consider themselves Republican but for those who are Democrat, Libertarian and everything in between; What do you dislike about Obama.
Here's what I see:
- Came into a shit-storm of a situation, economy wrecked and in two wars.
- He made decisions that can be criticized and should be however, the economy is on the mend.
- He has ended one war and is ending another one.
- He has restored the reputation of this country in the eyes of much of the rest of the world.
- He killed Osama.
- He created health care reform that will benefit millions (not perfect by any means, but a step in the right direction for sure)
- He ended DADT
He has disappointed us in many ways as well but all in all I think he has done well considering not only the circumstances he came into, but also the hostile and overtly racist government he has to deal with.
What are your thoughts on this? What do you dislike about Obama?
i'd really like dr ron paul to win but if he doesnt get the nomination,, johnson is my first pick. its about time we had a 3rd party president.
Oh, yeah. Like it could be anyone other than Obama or Romney.
if people got off their asses and voted, and educated themselves before doing so. I'm sick of seeing ignorant black people with obama t shirt and the rednecks with romney bumper stickers. our educated minority need to vote.
I didn't know he had any national security or foreign policy positions, other than saying that he'd be "tough on China," whatever the f*** that means. China is the #2 power in the world anymore and we don't have much leverage over them.
So you would favor putting American lives on the line in service of Israel, rather than diplomacy, sanctions and covert ops?
I'm curious Sassan - your profile indicates that you are Iranian yourself, by nationality, and that you actually visited Iran for a time.
I know nothing of Iran in the days of the Shah, and you, certainly, are to young to have any first-hand knowledge, but I had friends from that era, and I knew Iraqis as well, and although I can certainly allow for personality differences between individuals, regardless of nationality, on the whole, the Iranians seemed gentler, more humble, more personable than did the Iraqis - why do you feel so strongly that the US should use force against Iran, rather than any other means?
You appear to be of an age so as to be eligible for military service - why haven't you volunteered to go fight Iranians, in the event we ever should attack? You could be a deputy for that "new sheriff in town!"
If we could convince Walmart to quit buying all of their products from them, we could bring them to their knees - as soon as we paid off all of the debt we owe them because they keep using Walmart money to buy our bonds.
I like Romey's national security and foreign policy positions. I consider libertarians to be naive and ignorant - and very dangerous for this country. Particularly Ron Paul.
That's big talk, but more military action on the doorstep of Russia is probably not a good thing. We're already in Iraq and Afghanistan and incur into Pakistan on a regular basis.
The US, most agree, is behind the cyber attack on Iran's nuclear program, so it's not like the US is doing nothing. The cyber attack is probably smarter than anything military.
No longer in Iraq. Bottom line: I believe in American exceptionalism. President Obama apparently does not. It is time to have a President who once again believes in the greatness and moral duty in the leader of the free world.
Oh, we're still there. Not as normal ground troops, but we have CIA operatives there and we conduct special operations as needed. (read this)
You seem more interested in grand gestures than in anything effective.
This moral duty talk could get us involved in yet another war. Maybe you have some idea where the money would come from? How about higher taxes!
