Disagreeing with Obama will get you fired.

Post by Nark »

Former Marine Commandant, Gen Jones, is the latest scapegoat in the Obama administration's quest to do what they want. He was selected as National Security Adviser, and a great choice.

However,
Obama, who has no clue in foreign policy won't listen to his Generals. I know of a few high ranking folks myself, who, to say the least, didn't vote for change. Gen McChrystal told it like it is: Fired. Next Gen Jones, telling it like it is: Fired.

I know ISTP will remember, but I'll say it again. I will donate $500 to AvCanada, if Obama is reelected in 2012.

C'mon, Nark, spare us the anti-Obama spin. It's always been that way - didn't Truman fire MacArthur? I'm sure that there's legions of generalls who've been fired by their political masters for telling it as they saw it/as it is...

North Shore,

It's simply "proof in the pudding" that Obama doesn't care about anything else than his self image. This is only one facet of his ineptitude.
While this isn't new to anyone here, politicians alike having been dodging responsibility for centuries.

I bit my tongue for over a year about my displeasure in his election. Now that I'm a nasty civilian again, I'm able to stand on a soapbox and scream to the world my libertarian views. (Not that I didn't before, however there were rules I had to follow).

I will give this to the man, he is a great campaigner, however a useless leader. Not really the person you want as Leader of the Free World.

And you think that Bush strutting around on a carrier deck was about anything other than self-image?

I hate to turn this into yet another unresolvable left/right debate, because it isn't - it's a criticism of politicians in general of all political colours - they see the world as their ideology wants them to, not necessarily how would be observed by an unbiased observer.

Did you do your ride yet? Liking the 'Ho?

Completed the ride earlier this week, and finished IOE today.

Back to the topic at hand.

Yes, both sides, right and left are moronic at times. It is what we debate, whom is more moronic.

Lurch,

The Leader of the Free World, is a term used to describe the President of the United States. It stems from the Cold War era.

Google is your friend.

Obama serves a purpose. Somebody needed to eclipse Jimmy Carter as the least qualified President since WWII.

Versus Bush who must have known far more and listened to everybody :weedman:
Bush:

"We found the weapons of mass destruction. We found biological laboratories ... And we'll find more weapons as time goes on. But for those who say we haven't found the banned manufacturing devices or banned weapons, they're wrong, we found them." --Washington, D.C., May 30, 2003

"Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere!" --joking about his administration's failure to find WMDs in Iraq as he narrated a comic slideshow during the Radio & TV Correspondents' Association dinner, Washington, D.C., March 24, 2004

"You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror." --interview with CBS News' Katie Couric, Sept. 6, 2006

"The same folks that are bombing innocent people in Iraq were the ones who attacked us in America on September the 11th." --Washington, D.C., July 12, 2007
etc...Just Google Bushisms.

Joking aside, he must have been scarily easy to manipulate via his advisors, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld and Co.
And now you have the States in recession, stuck with a war in Iraq for the last 7 years.

Dude, Obama has declared victory, and the war over in Iraq.

If you're going to slam my glorious former leader, don't forget to incorporate my new glorious leader.

Using the term "Free World" and/or variations thereof in 2010 is delusional.

Just look at this stupid bitch:

Valerie Plame. Does that name ring a bell there Nark?

Bush, Rove and his cronies have driven the US right to the brink and beyond. We're are watching an empire crumble and we'e got front row seats. It was totally unnecessary and is absolutely a tragedy.

Now I need to learn to like rice.
