Don't worry it's all good. Putin gots dis.

And somehow some way some farkers are going to find a way to credit President Obama with it.
 
2013-09-09 01:23:48 PM
At least when Bush went on the war path he had the support of Congress and a large number of the general population.

/Plus no drone strikes on US citizens.

Who gives a shiat who gets the credit?  The solution to this mess is sitting in front of us by way of Assad's offer to surrender his CW stockpiles to UN control.

TAKE IT, GOD DAMN IT.

This where good politics demands compromise.  Mr. President, you have my support for a military strike on Miley Cyrus.

Poor Berry just seems so clueless.

Time for another speech, celebrity fundraiser or golf outing.

I can't fap to Syria.

Well, she was shaking her booty like it was going out of style...

/ we are going to do exactly nothing on Syria; I just know it.

People ask .. If they knew about the Holocaust then why didn't they do anything about it?

Here is your answer.

Her last name and the country are eerily similar.  Cyrus. Syria.  Syria.  Cyrus.  Uma. Oprah.

While I still think Romney and Mccain would have been worse, the latter mostly due to his shockingly poor VP choice, Obama has been a big disappointment and this is just another case where he doesn't seem to get it. Me President, with all due respect, NO! The people have spoken, what part of "stay the fark out of Syria" do you not understand?
 
2013-09-09 01:31:15 PM
Hmm. . .stick my wang in Miley or Assad?

decisions, decisions

If I was Assad I'd offer to turn over control of the chemical weapons to Russia and watch Obama cause an even bigger problem when he either has to accept it or publicly admit Russia as an enemy.

And THIS. I recently realized I'd been played like a fiddle believing he was any different from any other president. Obama is a half black man raised by a single mother and his grandparents, and he basically has ended up acting exactly like W Bush--who in my opinion is the worst president in my lifetime. It's basically convinced me politics is for us to argue while the dudes at the top aren't listening.
 
2013-09-09 01:37:37 PM
Nothing worse than a president with a twerky trigger finger.
 
2013-09-09 01:38:44 PM
Miley Cyriaus?
 
2013-09-09 01:40:02 PM
Which one likes to flaunt her ass and tits, Miley or Syria?

There ya go.

Meh, that's just because he was a bigger liar and better at cooking the intel data.  But yeah, if the world wants to ignore the use of chemical weapons on civilians, I see no reason why the US should take up the standard.

It appears Obama will fail.


Again
 
2013-09-09 02:16:22 PM
People care more about Miley Cyrus then action against Syria? How shocking! Its almost as if the media was designed that way, to be distractions while our wise over lords perform illegal and unconstitutional actions in order to fill personal agendas or profitable actions.

Its a big circus of distraction, do not act shocked when the clowns are brought out when the lion eats the lion tamer.

I couldn't care less about Syria, or any other middle eastern country for that matter. We've wasted enough money and lives on that part of the world for little to no gain. Let them fight it out among themselves, when they've all killed each other and there's but one power left, we can do something then if necessary.
 
2013-09-09 02:29:12 PM
Can Obama twerk? Because that would totally capture my interest. And he could work Assad into it somehow, pointing out his name has "ass" in it. Ah yes, this would get the attention of America.

uncleacid: Nothing worse than a president with a twerky trigger finger.


I don't know.... I think it's kind of exciting. Brings back good vibes.
 
2013-09-09 02:31:29 PM
I can't speak for everyone but I clicked links hoping to see pictures of a woman looking sexy. I didn't read articles about her. I did read about Syria, and so I had to click fewer links. So maybe I clicked 12 articles with a picture of Miley Cyrus, but I read none, and still kept informed of goings on in Syria.

So the fundamental concept behind this is built on shaky foundations. Good day to you.

I guess that's the issue. I was willing to believe otherwise with this guy. Before he was president I knew this--I guess that's why it bothers me so farking much.

Well maybe he and his stupid issues would get more attention if he did a reality show. Like "West Wing, Keepin it Real."

I don't care if he sprouted up from cheese fungus and was raised by wolves...a politician is a politician is a politician. Enjoy the "change."

Yesterday I got a poll call asking how I'd feel about invading Syria. Normally I'd have hung up but it sounded legit so I answered all the questions. I almost laughed when she got to the demographic section and asked if I believed Kennedy was killed by one man or more.

Adjusting for people who's opinion we care nothing about. Of course, then we sit around and wonder why the results from our echo chamber don't mirror reality.

Read "The President's Club".  It points out that pretty much every president becomes the same guy after two years in office.  The only difference is where they start.
 
2013-09-09 04:35:59 PM
What if we simply rounded up every kid aged 11-17 in the US and put them in Syria. That would solve some problems here and create lulz abroad.
