Without having to fire one shot or spending trillions on defense like REAGAN did to bring down Communism.

All he had to do was open a free Twitter and Facebook Account like what they just did with Iran opening up a Twitter account in Farsi in order to communicate directly to the people.

Or maybe this is already part of his strategy for 2012. He's coming to Silicon Valley tomorrow....perhaps we are seeing seeds planted for Obama+Facebook+Twitter=Freeing the Middle East.

When actual smart people do things, isnt it way better than just chestpounding and rhetoric?

This is awesome.

A troll post at its best.

But I will bite.

#1) So you now believe Reagan brought down communisim?

#2) President Obama opened a twitter account and that brought down Muslim dictatorships. Maybe I will open a twitter account an tweet about how much I want to win the powerball this week. I hope it works as well as it did for the President.

No need to be so butt-hurt.

Im simply stating that the President can use the recent events in Egypt and Tunisia and now what we're seeing in Yemen and even Iran to his advantage politically.

Is this not the elections subforum?

maybe he can and I am sure he will, but I doubt too many are going to think he had much to do with any of what has or may happen.

It all started with his speech in Cairo.

He saved Egypt but can't save his own country.

Is the US president really using these recent events to his advantage?

Or are you jumping the gun and seeing how revolution in one part of the world means that you, in your own disgruntled corner of the world, are trying to make it about you, and your disgruntled part of the world.

Sarcasm can be awesome, but if you are trying to generate an actual dialogue, sarcasm does not go very far. In fact, it sets a rather ridiculous and stupid tone.

Maybe we can trade the anti American idiot for some oil even up.

He cannot even find most of these countries on a map let alone take credit for doing nothing.

How about giving the PEOPLE of those countries the credit and not some fool who has nearly crippled the US economically, killed the American dream and has piled up debt we can never repay.

Sure, if it works out well for him he will take credit. Sorta like accepting the Nobel peace prize and increasing hostilities in the middle east. For either one, he has done nothing so of course he will claim credit.
