The dick-waving has been bad enough with President Punchy and SecState Babbleboy. They may yet double down on bad strategy ( pushing NATO to the Russian border) and get us all killed, but at least at heart, they are kinda chickenshit enough to be predisposed against doing anything difficult.
Unlike Romney or McCain. They have a proven track record of not giving a damn about the strategic realities and being willing to fight to the last guy-that-isn't-them. This is one time where I have to shake my head that the nation is faring better under an incompetent dolt than an incompetent EVIL dolt.
And yes, Virginia, it is evil to start wars of aggression where you have no business being.
Thank You Very Much for your post, Bezerk Saveant/Demon of Undoing.
If Romney had won, we'd likely be in a shooting war with Russia and all of the Armageddon talk would be that much closer.
Also possible that The Talented Mr. Putin, President Prince Vlad the Imprisoner, might not have tried anything with Romney as President since IMVHO Romney would not have done a World Apology Tour, Pulled missiles out of Eastern Europe for free, Run his mouth about Red Lines that he was not going to back up in Syria, and ESPECIALLY not LIED so much about obamaCare, Benghazi, the IRS scandal etc., that why should anyone trust much that comes out of obama's Red Lined
but at least at heart, they are kinda chickenshit enough to be predisposed against doing anything difficult.
Possibly true but they created that Frankenstein call obamaCare... That took work....
Wait! Maybe you are right!.........
Maybe Harry Reid did some work on obamaCare but that 2 legged bitch Nancy Pelosi didn't even read the thing
Probably obama mostly just LIED about it between golf games....
And I think LYING may be quite easy for obama
Unlike Romney or McCain. They have a proven track record of not giving a damn about the strategic realities and being willing to fight to the last guy-that-isn't-them.
I strongly disagree with McCain's stance on the Ukraine....
Most likely it is too late for the Ukraine after obama's LIES, incompetence and Betrayal.....
But IMVHO McCain is not a fight to the last guy that isn't him.....
McCain has been willing to fight at great personal cost to himself....
Willing to be the last guy to leave the Prisoner of War camp.......

McCain requested a combat assignment, and was assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal flying A-4 Skyhawks. His combat duty began when he was 30 years old, in mid-1967, when Forrestal was assigned to a bombing campaign, Operation Rolling Thunder, during the Vietnam War. Stationed in the Gulf of Tonkin, McCain and his fellow pilots became frustrated by micromanagement from Washington, and he would later write that "In all candor, we thought our civilian commanders were complete idiots who didn't have the least notion of what it took to win the war."
On July 29, 1967, McCain, by then a lieutenant commander, was near the epicenter of the USS Forrestal fire. He escaped from his burning jet and was trying to help another pilot escape when a bomb exploded; McCain was struck in the legs and chest by fragments. The ensuing fire killed 134 sailors and took 24 hours to control. With the Forrestal out of commission, McCain volunteered for assignment with the USS Oriskany, another aircraft carrier employed in Operation Rolling Thunder. Once there, he would be awarded the Navy Commendation Medal and the Bronze Star for missions flown over North Vietnam.
Prisoner of war
John McCain's capture and subsequent imprisonment began on October 26, 1967. He was flying his 23rd bombing mission over North Vietnam when his A-4E Skyhawk was shot down by a missile over Hanoi. McCain fractured both arms and a leg ejecting from the aircraft, and nearly drowned when he parachuted into Trúc Bạch Lake. Some North Vietnamese pulled him ashore, then others crushed his shoulder with a rifle butt and bayoneted him. McCain was then transported to Hanoi's main Hỏa Lò Prison, nicknamed the "Hanoi Hilton".
Although McCain was badly wounded, his captors refused to treat his injuries, beating and interrogating him to get information; he was given medical care only when the North Vietnamese discovered that his father was a top admiral. His status as a prisoner of war (POW) made the front pages of major newspapers.
McCain spent six weeks in the hospital while receiving marginal care. By then having lost 50 pounds (23 kg), in a chest cast, and with his hair turned white, McCain was sent to a different camp on the outskirts of Hanoi in December 1967, into a cell with two other Americans who did not expect him to live a week. In March 1968, McCain was put into solitary confinement, where he would remain for two years.
In mid-1968, John S. McCain, Jr. was named commander of all U.S. forces in the Vietnam theater, and the North Vietnamese offered McCain early release because they wanted to appear merciful for propaganda purposes, and also to show other POWs that elite prisoners were willing to be treated preferentially. McCain turned down the offer; he would only accept repatriation if every man taken in before him was released as well. Such early release was prohibited by the POW's interpretation of the military Code of Conduct: To prevent the enemy from using prisoners for propaganda, officers were to agree to be released in the order in which they were captured.
In August 1968, a program of severe torture began on McCain. He was subjected to rope bindings and repeated beatings every two hours, at the same time as he was suffering from dysentery. Further injuries led to the beginning of a suicide attempt, stopped by guards. Eventually, McCain made an anti-American propaganda "confession". He has always felt that his statement was dishonorable, but as he later wrote, "I had learned what we all learned over there: Every man has his breaking point. I had reached mine." Many American POWs were tortured and maltreated in order to extract "confessions" and propaganda statements; virtually all of them eventually yielded something to their captors. McCain subsequently received two to three beatings weekly because of his continued refusal to sign additional statements.
McCain refused to meet with various anti-war groups seeking peace in Hanoi, wanting to give neither them nor the North Vietnamese a propaganda victory. From late 1969 onward, treatment of McCain and many of the other POWs became more tolerable, while McCain continued actively to resist the camp authorities. McCain and other prisoners cheered the U.S. "Christmas Bombing" campaign of December 1972, viewing it as a forceful measure to push North Vietnam to terms.
Altogether, McCain was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam for five and a half years. He was released on March 14, 1973. His wartime injuries left him permanently incapable of raising his arms above his head.
the nation is faring better under an incompetent dolt than an incompetent EVIL dolt.
Doubt that Romney or even maverick McCain would have been as incompetent as obama.....
But the biggest problem is that obama too is EVIL
For the love of G_d, consider you & I may be mistaken.
