FTFA: "the Republicans charted a course of denial and obstruction from the day Mr. Obama was inaugurated, determined to deny him a second term by denying him any achievement, no matter the cost to the economy or American security"


/Not only does Condi have the nerve to be both black and a woman but now she insists on being honest, contrary to the party line, she must not care if she ever gets to run for President.

That would be true if she had written the editorial.

Don't forget that he bows and kneels before all those former leaders. I found this picture where he's bowing to welcome the Kenyan foreign minister.

When you look at how things turned out in Egypt, if you are a pro-militant Muslim, it went very well.

/in other words, if you like Iran, you will love how the Muslim Brotherhood will run things there. Thanks Obama!

Bin Laden is dead, GM is alive. Under a Romney presidency, the opposite would have been true, according to Romney.

That should be the GOP's policy for just about everything this election. Just mail out the Romney/Ryan signs, then hide them both in Cheney's bunker until November. At least then they won't be digging the hole any farking deeper.

His greatest foreign policy triumph:

Of course, that's only after his ordering the assassination of an unarmed man in front of his family while violating the sovereign territory of a country that never attacked us using intelligence gathered using torture.

They have to. One of their biggest contributors wants to commit us to war in Iran. He's not paying for silence.

Do YOU know the names of the dozens of other terrorists that were killed under Obama? The ones that would have remained alive since Republicans were panty-wearing pansies who didn't want to upset our "ally" Pakistan, while Obama had the balls to say "fark them, there are parts of the Pakistani government that actively support the terrorists, we are going to go after them on our own terms". Now that's what Republicans wish they could do.

And yet, it's light years ahead of any Republican foreign policy in decades. I mean, Bush launched two wars to do it, at ruinous cost to America's finances, and FAILED.
 
2012-08-31 09:00:14 AM  

EnviroDude: If the sole trophy...


Let's see... at least those that won't completely offend your delicate constitution...

47 nations rise to the challenge at US nuke summit and agree to four years of non-proliferation efforts.
G-20 Summit produced a $1.1 trillion deal to combat the global financial crisis.
Renewed loan guarantees for Israel.
Pledged $400 million in aid to Gaza civillians.
Iran Sanctions Act.
Authorized discussions with Myanmar and mission by Sen. Jim Webb to secure the release of an American held captive.
Nuclear arms agreements with India
Lord's Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 2009.
Nuclear arms agreements with Australia
Nuclear arms agreement with Russia.
Agreed with Switzerland to bolster tax information exchange.

And then there's OBL and Gaddafi.

She was likely our biggest failure as foreign secretary and is in no position to lecture anyone.

I mean, her big area of expertise was supposed to be Russia, and Putin made a fool out of her.

2012-08-31 09:07:05 AM  
As recently as October 2010, Condi was supporting Obama's foreign policy. "Nothing in this president's methods suggests this president is other than a defender of America's interests."

// I wonder why they let her speak at BirferCon

Isn't foreign policy on the list of ten million things Mitt Romney has declared to be "off-the-table" for this election? I don't think we're even technically allowed to discuss it amongst ourselves.

But please, continue to lend support to dictators.

I'm sorry, why does everyone think Boba Fett is so cool?

He didn't capture Han Solo, Vader did. He merely transported the carbonite slab to Jabba. And then he dies like a biatch at the hands of a half blind guy and fell into a giant sand vagina. To be honest he was completely inept and useless.

So, yeah, I guess Condi kind of is like Boba.

I loved the part of her speech where she was talking of her parents not being able to take her to the lunch counter at Woolworth's because OF THE PEOPLE IN THE ROOM SHE WAS SPEAKING TOO. She's a stupid coont. I can say that because I've never burned trillions of dollars and the lives of thousands of my countrymen in the wrong war. She's one of the greatest failures to ever live.

Tickle Mittens: I loved the part of her speech where she was talking of her parents not being able to take her to the lunch counter at Woolworth's because OF THE PEOPLE IN THE ROOM SHE WAS SPEAKING TOO.


That wasn't the most awkward part of that sentence.

"And on a personal note- a little girl grows up in Jim Crow Birmingham - the most segregated big city in America - her parents can't take her to a movie theater or a restaurant - but they make her believe that even though she can't have a hamburger at the Woolworth's lunch counter - she can be President of the United States and she becomes the Secretary of State

Yes, America has a way of making the impossible seem inevitable in retrospect.."

Boba Fett is established by Vader. He gets a specific verbal warning, as compared to an "I'm disappointed" force choking. After that, he sasses Vader; "He's no good to me dead."

/He also outmanuvers Han when he anticipates him hiding in the garbage dump, following him to Bespin, allowing Vader to cut him off.

Wait a minute, Osama Bin Laden is now getting sympathy from folks? Fark that. I'm pretty left of center, but this is one instance where I don't give a fark. OBL could have been killed holding an olive branch, white doves, and a box full of puppies and kitties in view of a bus of nuns and the Vienna Boy's Choir and I wouldn't be defending him. Sorry, I think you're pretty much alone with a fringe group on that.

Well, his "father" was the template for what became the Stormtroopers, worst shots in the galaxy and prone to being tricked by old men and their young boy toys.

To be fair, Jango Fett was pretty bad ass. He at least fought Obi-Wan to a stand still on the ground and in a space dogfight. And had he not gotten run over by the big monster in the arena, he might have been able to take Mace Windu down. His "son", on the other hand, and his genetic legacy, were pretty much a joke.

You know, kind of like the Bush family.
