    Personally, if Obama weren't that partisan and would listen to middle of the road health advisors instead of Obama supporters that I have checked are, then you have a bit of a bias going on. Also There was only one point of view and never other alternative points of view, so in Obama's world, liberalism is what trumps over everything else, to say otherwise, is pure delusional denial.

    Can someone translate this for me?

    Bgood41: While Obama and his on the air coalition busy talking, Isis is advancing. ISIS 2.0 or 3.0 would not exist if Obama listened to general's recommendation to secure some forces in Iraq

    Always interesting to get a peek into the Republican bubble.

    The fact is that troops were not left because the Iraqis refused to grant immunity to those troops. Obviously no Republican on earth would agree to that demand, but if you leave that part of the situation out then Republicans can craft a position that the knuckle draggers will be able to repeat.

    Let's also not forget that Republicans on this board were in full support of bombing Assad early on. I'm surprised that those same people think their voice should be heard now.

    Not at all surprising this happened in a Republican state. Most of their time and energy is focused on closing abortion clinics while this deadly disease spreads.

    Wolfpack: Yet again government incompetence.

    The same government you trust to carry out voter ID laws. Sign me up.

    I've listened to Maher for years and this is something he's been talking about for a while. It's a point that's often misconstrued by liberal members on his show.

    He makes a simple point: if you print a cartoon with Mohammad you can expect violence and even death threats. Does that mean every Muslim is a murderer? Nope. But it doesn't excuse the fact that everyone trying to murder you will be Muslim. And they will do it in the name of their faith.

    His other point is how liberals stand up for injustice in their own countries but write off wrongs in other countries as "differences in culture." We'd never accept female genital mutilation here but liberals will often get in the way of legitimate criticism with false equivalency or simply playing the culture card. He's saying that they are the ones who should be leading the charge to bring about equality, not excusing/forgiving/tolerating it.

    Generally speaking, people who want to secede are making emotional outbursts and they tend to come across as nutjobs. They wrap themselves in names like "patriots" as an excuse for their extremism.

    scipantheist: Liberty like the freedom to have ABORTIONS. Got it, wingers.....

    Yep. They hate federal interference unless it suits their ideology. Live free.....unless you want an abortion in which case we need the government to prevent that. Stop spending....but don't touch the military. Don't trust the bureaucracy....unless it's to print useless voter ID cards which puts the government between you and the ballot. Protect the Constitution....unless it's trumped by the Bible. Believe in Democracy....unless it votes against you then you should shut down the government.

    Their fight is just too important to live up to the ideals they say they believe in. They are saving America, after all.

    SuperLib: But didn't you support Obama going after Assad early on, which would have played right into the hands of ISIS?

    Wolfpack: Not until Obama drew his Red Line in the sand.

    Nah. Obama made his red line quote in August 2012. In Feb 2012 you said, "Will President Obama continue to stand by while Syrian's are slaughtered? Well of course he will." In May 2012 you said, "You can't win if you don't get in the fight. How much longer is President Obama going to wait and watch Syrians be slaughtered." In Aug 2012 you continued with the "slaughter" theme with "The US is not helping Syria. Hillary is just sitting around watching the slaughter."

    My guess is that you don't really know what your position is/was in Syria except for "criticize Obama." Fast forward to 2014 and suddenly you're telling the world that it was Obama's support for the rebels that got us here. You just kind of make things up as you go along then have no idea what you said before.

    WilliB: You seem to assume that just becauce McCain is clueless, every other GOP member is too. That is not true. Fore example, Rand Paul nails it in this article:

    Paul is the exception in the Republican party and I give him kudos for sticking to his guns. But if you want to see history as it unfolded, not the "WilliB" version, just look at the articles from 2 years ago:

    GOP Debate Brings Out Tough Talk on Syria (http://www.frontpagemag.com/2012/ryan-mauro/candidates-join-al-qaeda-in-supporting-syria-coup/)

    Three of the four Republican presidential candidates endorsed regime change in Syria during last night’s debate, with Ron Paul being the lone exception. Rick Santorum described Syria as a “puppet state of Iran” and said “we could do no worse” than the Assad regime. Newt Gingrich was more specific and said the U.S. should covertly arm the Syrian rebels so they can topple the regime. Mitt Romney said that Syria is “Iran’s route to the sea” and that the revolution is something that the U.S. must “grab hold of.”

    You'll find hundreds and hundreds of articles where Republicans supported the US supporting the rebels. Which brings me to the next point: the articles consistently show Obama as reluctant in giving much of any support to the rebels. Which was, of course, the Republican's reason for criticizing him.

    May 2012: "The White House has rejected arming rebel groups, saying it does not know enough about them and does not want to “further militarize the situation.”

    You can do the search yourself to find hundreds of articles saying the same thing. Obama eventually supported smaller groups of rebels with things like radios and medical kits, but obviously went nowhere near the level of support Republicans wanted him to give. I believe the criticism of Obama at the time was that he wasn't showing "leadership" because he was sitting on the sidelines.

    Fast forward to 2014, and WilliB would have us believe that the rebels took these radios and medical kits and took over Syria and now Iraq. All because of Obama's steadfast and reckless support of ISIS....heh.

    I suppose I could have written this a long time ago but it's hard to muster the energy required to prove someone wrong when they've obviously going out of their way to distort reality, and obviously you'll just continue to do the same anyway. But after seeing dozens if not hundreds of posts of your trying to make your version of reality stick, I figured it was time to step in and give other readers a history lesson. You should reset your counter to zero now.

    WIlliB: the West does not have to "side with" Assad, but we can leave him alone to deal with the Jihadis in his country.

    Just what Obama really did.

    Fascinating. I wasn't aware that this was still going on. I remember an investigation started but I just kind of lost track of it over the years.

    So what's the final verdict? Or is it still ongoing?
