rufus-t-firefly: Saborlas: what_now: Fox News Praises Marie Antoinette Empathy for the Less Fortunate

Wrong person. The phrase was possibly invented by Jean-Jacques Rousseau in his dubious autobiography, or created by the peasantry to libel her (she had to put up with a LOT of libel). There's no evidence Antoinette ever said it.

She didn't have to say it - she still wore diamonds when her people had no bread.

"Belonging to Marie Antoinette, the child of Empress Marie Theresa of Austria and Emperor Francis I, the estimated price is at $3.7 million."

This, and a lot of the last 35 years of American governance and corporate oligarchy gives us historical precedent for what happens when you hand the keys to the throne room  to ridiculous, rich spoiled brats.

bunner: The best thing about these threads is that nobody has learned from the ostensibly ground breaking presidency of Barack Obama, black guy, that it don't matter if a stick of butter is president, and it hasn't since 1980.  The president's job is to hold the goose while the grease goes through it and be the public opinion dartboard.


No.  It most certainly does matter who is President.

If Obama had lost to McCain, President Palin would have started World War III by dropping nukes on somebody, probably somebody who was our ally.  (McCain would have died of a heart attack within two years of taking office.)

Did George Bush anticipate these problems when he signed an agreement with the Iraq government in 2008 which called for the removal of all US troops from Iraq by the end of 2011? Hmm

Yesterday John Stewart called out the media for seeking the "wisdom" of the same idiots that advocated for the Iraq war in the first place. These people have zero credibility whatsoever since they were completely and utterly wrong about this war. If they say one thing, then you would be safe to believe the opposite.

It's absolutely mind boggling why people are even listening to these idiots like they know what the fark they are talking about. For instance, if it was up to McCain the U.S. would have become involved in Libya, Syria, Georgia, Ukraine and now, once again, Iraq and the U.S. would have had

The same goes for Bush. If he could really anticipates problems with Iraq then he wouldn't have pushed for that stupid, pointless farking war in the first place.

The US needs to stay the fark out of this mess. Learn your lesson, stop interfering militarily with other countries, it isn't worth the cost.

If Bush knew what was going to happen all along, why did he invade in the first place?
Yeah, I know. Dumb question.

Well, I was merely pointing out only the most serious consequence of electing a Republican.  Obama has done nothing that I would consider "useless and dangerous"; both McCain/Palin and Romney would have done plenty in that category.

As for passing legislation, well, you need both Congress and the President to work together on that one, and the House is controlled by Republicans.

Diogenes: svanmeter: All the finger pointing at this point amounts to taking your eye off the ball. The true question here is Obama acting to protect OIL interest$, or is he being played for a fool by the Iranians to attack their Sunni enemies for them?

So you're refocusing us by pointing a finger at Obama?  I'm really not following your post at all.

If you think Obama is relevant to the ongoing unraveling of Iraq at this point you're really deluding yourself.

There would have been a strong possibility of this happening even if we had fully committed ourselves to Operation Enduring Occupation.  Regardless of who sits in the White House.


I am refocusing by pointing out IRAN's role in forcing Obama's hand. They threaten involvement, which caused Obama to rethink his initial impulse to stay out and blame Bush. Obama changed his mind and then said he "would consider all options" (while he sent in Aircraft carriers). He wanted to do nothing, but the specter of Iranian action caused his reversal. Now Iran can sit back and laugh while Obama does their dirty work against ISIS. Does this clarify it for you or are you still confused? Are you one of those who doesn't know the difference between Iran and Iraq? Let me spell it out for you again... Obama is motivated by protecting OIL interests in the region and he is being played for a fool by the Iranians.
