quote: Becasue we were in such great shape in January of 2009 when Obama took office. /rolls eyes
quote: Its not like a president takes office and immediatley effects the economy.
quote: When he took office the economy was in a nosedive and nothing could have stopped it. Did he make it worse? Yes, but he inherited a sinking ship.
quote: You just don't want to see the true evil that took place. That our President purposefully and intentionally manipulated the events taking place to gain political power and ram through an agenda. Fixing the economy, like any normal President would have attempted, was NOT his primary concern.
quote: You cant blame Obama for this mess
quote: At best you can say he made it worse
quote: What depression? Its already on its way back up.
quote: In the depression we had 25% unemployment and masses of people standing in line for a free bowl of govt. soup.
quote: I DONT think he is doing a good job, its just not his fault.

quote: What does Iran really hope to accomplish with all of this bravado? They've made their point.Saying things like "We will see America under our feet" doesn't help their cause any. It's one thing to stand up to the U.S., the West et al. It's another thing completely to be an active proponent of their destruction.
quote: Iran's behavior reminds me of the phrases: 'One short of a 6-pack', 'not firing on all cylinders'. What would other good ones be?
quote: What does Iran really hope to accomplish with all of this bravado? They've made their point.
quote: Absolutely. It surprising how the Americans easily forget history when it comes to foreign policy. The US/CIA involvement in other countries is littered with legitimate regimes destituted and replace with US manipulated puppets. No wandering that US is much hatred in many countries.
quote: They are after all the most aggressive country in the world.
quote: Ok, but you're completely ignoring the fact that previous US involvement in Iranian affairs is what has led to their strong anti-US sentiment. A CIA-led coup in the 50s led to the overthrowing of Premier Mossadeq, a much-loved and progressive leader of a parliamentary government, and placed an authoritarian puppet "Shah" in his stead, who brutally ruled the land while serving US interests.
quote: Believe it or not, Islamic Extremism and the prominence is enjoys today in the Middle-East is a direct by-product of US intervention in the Middle East and Africa.
quote: Do you honestly believe that further meddling is going to improve the situation?
quote: Before you go throwing around insults, try to think logically and not defensively, if possible.
