I like how he says the US isn't listening "NOW"...of course not, his administration got caught!

I wouldn't believe anything coming from the emperor! When Bush went into the middle east, after WE HAD BEEN ATTACKED , the libs called it an illegal war driven by oil and revenge. When the emperor sends our children to the middle east to die, AFTER NO ATTACK ON OUR SOIL, its called an international peace keeping mission. SEE THE DIFFERENCE?

"No, the key word is Obama. That's the key word in every Tea Party talking point."---"the NSA monitored phone conversations of 35 world leaders. The confidential memo is from 2006," Well, well, facts mean nothing to the kool aide drinkers on board. Over 5000 hours of negative broadcasting each month by the right wing media and almost a billion dollars spent over the past years blasting the health care act. It would be nice to see some factual presentations but that is too much to expect from the tea party drinkers so we just get hatred.

animal, your explanation is a joke. Peace keeping mission by B2. Ha, ha. Lies to attack a soverign nation and kill hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians? Yes, that is real peace keeping. Republicans have never seen a war they did not like.

So, who does speak for the Iraq citizens who died during shock and awe? Of course, not the Republicans. They speak for big oil, big corporations, the Koch Brothers and others. oh, yes, Sheldon Addleson, as well. You remember him don't ya? The billionaire supporter of anything right wing. Ya, well he is spouting off his ideas on the Iran situation. You know, he wants to send them a warning. A nuke from Nebraska just to let them know. Kill some more people in a sovereign nation. The Republican way.
As far as Iraq how many of his own innocent people did Hussein kill and torture. We went there to prevent Holocaust, we vowed to never let such atrocities happen ever again. Well worth fight for and if you end up on the opposing side you will be defeated. Hussein was one of our allies until they started enforcing Sharia Law on everybody in Iraq.

EarlyBird, the information in your post seems to have been forgotten by...let's see, what shall we call them...I've got it...the information in your post seems to have been forgotten by the Bush Haters.

The left wing seems to be angry these days...

We did not go into Iraq to save the people. Bush I had that 99% done and Schwartzkoff was sitting in the Desert just 24 hours from Baghdad awaiting orders to take him out. Those orders never came. Why? Same reasons that Bush I gave to Bush II and told him not to go in. Saddam was the buffer to keep Iran in line and Syria at bay. The main reason is that there was no exit plan to get out. Bush I saw it as the quagmire that it was and stayed out. Bush II lied and went in for oil contracts and revenge. He was an idiot. We are not the world's police and even though Republicans love any war, we should not have gone in.

"The left wing seems to be angry these days... "" you know, loco, I kinda disagree with that... Actually, when I look at the blogs, that theory does not seem true. Since bdgi is gone, things are a little less angry, but dusty still is using slurs and derogatory surnames, animal and other put forth a lot of denigrating names and putdowns. Certainly, the left has a couple of people with putdowns, but the balance of the anger is to the right. of course, when the right has very little facts to support their side, I would expect them to be angry. Then, you throw in the anger and hatred directed at President Obama, the shift of anger to the right is even more pronounced.

Someone made a comment about how these threads are less angry now that a certain user got the banhammer. Having read this entire thread (much to my abundant detriment having put myself through that frustrating exercise, I might add), I can't say that I see the alleged diminished levels of anger.

Centerfield your 11:18 post is all true, you just need to take the next step and ask yourself why we need to protect our American interests and from whom. Believe me I do not like wars and killing, but even more I dislike whole villages of people killed with chemicals because they have different Religions. We can't specify a country when dealing with terrorism and terrorist factions that inhabit the entire Middle East, we have crossed many borders to protect civilization as we know it. Billions of people on this planet share some similar beliefs and no more Religious Holocausts allowed is one of them. It's way more of a global problem than you assume.

Jobs are important. That is a myth. If they were important, Obama would have signed at E.O. demanding every person to be employed.

"Been waiting for the Republican Jobs Bill for almost five years now...Where the heck is it????"
What a naively hyperpartisan thing to say. The reality is that there have been all kinds of legislative proposals out there during this time period. What we don't hear so much about are the ones that go nowhere, i.e. die in committee and soforth.
Besides that, if they did have one that advanced, do you think the US Senate would abide it? See my earlier comment about dying in committee.
If you want to play politics, fine. But don't think I'm going to buy your, "My side is good and does no wrong; their side is wicked and does no good." You're part of the problem and miss the big picture.
Although, mark, the negativity of the blog is still evident, the massive amount of negativity put forth by BDGI and dusty would be impossible to miss. You are on the blogs enough to know that it has decreased. We have two new bloggers who are obviously trying to fill the negative void of bdgi. Quite possibly, one could be a re-incarnation of an old blogger.

"This carousel of controversy perpetuating out of the mouths of extremist Tea Partiers has only one purpose...Insulting everyone and anyone who do not agree with them!"
I just about choked on my afternoon coffee on this one. AS IF tea party people are the "only" ones that are insulting. What about the extreme lefties, not only here, but all over the blogosphere and most media? People who don't agree with the lefty liberal Democrat viewpoint are vilified, belittled, called ugly names, and worse.
This post is borderline disingenuous, but I'll give credit for good intentions.

"The Republican party will never win another national election. Mark my words."
Another liberal perdickshun, similar to Sen. Heitkamp's about then-candidate Obama, that he would be "amazing."
Well, most of that perdickshun came true, but not in the fashion Sen. Heitkamp imagined.
Time period: 10/9 - 10/24
President Obama's Job Approval (by averaged polls - RCP)
Wonder what next week's averaged polls will bring?
"If you want to play politics, fine. But don't think I'm going to buy your, "My side is good and does no wrong; their side is wicked and does no good." You're part of the problem and miss the big picture." You are right. Principles bring solutions, not political barbs one way or the other.

"Quite possibly, one could be a re-incarnation of an old blogger."
Wouldn't be the first time. People get banned on here all the time and are back the next day under a new name. Remember "olddog", or "PoeticJustice4U", who returned in a completely unsubtle manner by reusing part of the old name...
Whistler, you know I don't want to, but I must.
That is, I must disagree with you on this MDN forum not being a useful venue.
It does show the viewpoints of both libs and cons, Dems and Reps, in full and living color.
Call me an idealist, but I like this diversity. It's equal opportunity for all.
billlllllygitmo, you don't disappoint.
PJinfinity doesn't disappoint.
That race card comes in handy. Often.
