Without firing a single missile, President Reagan actually brought down the Soviet Union

THIS IS WHAT REPUBLICANS ACTUALLY BELIEVE

"Without firing a single missile, President Reagan actually brought down the Soviet Union, and you've got right not a President who's you know, John Kerry's flying around and drinking merlot with people, and saying, 'Let's all be friends,' and they're laughing at us right now," he said.

I don't know why or how people can believe this.

The real question is ... which Merlot?

"...and you've got right not a President who's you know, John Kerry's flying around and drinking merlot with people, and saying, 'Let's all be friends,'"

he then shotgunned a can of millwaukee's best and crushed the can on his forhead exclaiming "hail reagan!"

the fact that the GOP is equating the current situation in Ukraine with the cold war is what's embarrassing.

15 for 5 liters around here.  People in wine growing countries drink a lot of cheap wine.  They don't spend 20 bucks on a bottle every day.  I was on a flight last year where one of the other passengers ask the flight attendant  if the wine was French. She said Yes.  It comes in a box but it is French.  I chuckled heartily.

Well, FFS-- what would these chucklefarks at CPAC have Obama do? Call up the reserves and invade? Carpet bomb Moscow? Start flinging Tomahawk missiles in random directions?

Would they be mollified if Kerry downed a fifth of Tequila and swam across the Atlantic?

Regardless of what he does, Obama will be criticized by these bozos as having done exactly the wrong thing.  NOTHING would mollify them.

And considering how ignorant and pliable their belief system is, they'd back a Republican President that nuked the Ukraine (yes, the people we're trying to help), or told them Putin was a good man and his actions were justified.

/OK, the latter example was too stupid to ever be a reality

xenophon10k: Without firing a single missile, President Reagan actually brought down the Soviet Union

THIS IS WHAT REPUBLICANS ACTUALLY BELIEVE


Back in high school I was surrounded by a bunch of very right oriented kids (pretty much all due to parental influence) and I had to do a report on the end of the Cold War and I think it was one of the best things that opened my eyes to just how delusional people are with Reagan.

Most grocery stores will carry a 750ml cheap-ass Merlot that's still drinkable; and the Charles Shaw Merlot at Trader Joe's is quite good, even by wine snob standards.

But if you need to splurge on the $5/bottle Merlot in order to float the peace talks, go for it.

Criticizing Obama without suggesting a viable, alternative plan of action?

My mind is blown by how new and shocking this behavior is.

oldernell: I was on a flight last year where one of the other passengers ask the flight attendant if the wine was French. She said Yes. It comes in a box but it is French. I chuckled heartily.


It may be me, but I'm not going to hold an airline to the same standard as, say, a restaurant. The fact that they have wine at all is good enough for me.

/Besides, the Australians, Chileans, Argentinians, and Americans also make some pretty good wines.

One thing I was told in France was that because the French like to drink so much wine, the average person cannot realistically drink 50 Euro bottles with every meal.  They drink much cheaper table wines or house wines.  That's what I found so cool--you don't have to know much about wines, because their cheaper wines are meant to be drinkable by the average person.  At least, I never had a bad experience with house or table wines.

Marcus Aurelius: We're not the ones that just lost a huge chunk of territory, so I have no idea why anyone would be laughing at us right now.


Exactly.  As much as the Republicans want everything to be about the United States, not everything in the world is about the United States.  We aren't going to get in a shooting war with the Russians over this, so, other than that, there's not really anything we can do if Putin is willing to stand his ground and take a hit to his stockmarket and accept a few international sanctions.

They want him to do everything he's currently doing, just more decisively.  And maybe with his shirt off while riding a horse.

I'm pretty sure the world is laughing at us because any suggested change - usually policies that are already in place across the First World - touches off an acrimonious political debate.

This is actually fairly solid advice no matter where you go. Most of the time, the dishes will be prepared with the house wine in mind and they should pair nicely.

If the world is laughing at the US at anything it over the misconception among the right that this whole issue is foremost between Russia and the US.

I was talking to someone from England about the pros and cons of our country and when it looked like I was winning (barely) he said. " Yeah but your country has Republicans"
Touche
I would not wish Republicans on any country to be honest
