Now it was all our idea.
No one ever claimed it was all planned, do not lie, but it was due to the President pointing our weapons at Assad that Putin came up with a quick plan to save their ally from getting bombed, especially since Russia could not have done anything to prevent it. Yes, go ahead kiss up to the KGB Agent and disrespect the President of the US, it is more proof that the right have lost their collective minds.

I gotta admit I'm intrigued at the number of progressive columnists ripping Obama right now. They're making some really good cases. It's a very interesting political dynamic going on and a complex situation. Politics has become interesting again after months of doldrums.

The dems can say whatever they want but according to Pew Research they're losing their numbers to the Independents in far greater numbers than the Republicans. The American people are just sick and tired of all O's crap and since 2008 they have lost a 15% lead in leaned party affiliation (51% to 36%) I only keep my dem party affiliation to vote for the lesser of two evils in the primaries.

Because Russia's proposal got our finger off the trigger and I happen to agree with that I'm now kissing up to the KGB ?

We were about to invade and bomb a country that did absolutely nothing to us and most of the world was against us doing it.

I don't have that much blind loyalty that I overlook sovereign aggression even when it comes from us.

They're so sick and tired of Obama. I know this because President Romney told me so.

Ah, but I didn't vote for Romney either. I may be a registered Dem but I vote on the man and his qualifications not empty promises. I don't blindly follow party lines and it looks like a lot of former Dems don't either.

Good choice. I didn't even watch last night. And, of course, I didn't miss anything.

I just sat through a very painful and sad idiotic discussion on MSNBC with Chris Mathews. He had on the usual go to gargoyles, leftist hate merchant David Corn and some senile old dimwit congressman. They were doing mental gymnastics trying to turn Obamas epic failure with Syria into some kind of success.

With less than 24 hours from OB 1's speech he was after bombing Syria again. What a retard that idiot in the WH is. The left has 0 moral standing, not that they ever did.

I'm certainly not opposed to an Independent candidate. But it's going to have to be someone other than Rand Paul or any other tea party candidate.
