GEORGETOWN, S.C. When Alexander the Great died at the age of 32 in 323 B.C., his once unbeatable army began a 2,900-mile withdrawal from India and headed home to Macedonia. As they retreated, the empire they had created collapsed behind them. To prevent pursuit, Alexander's royal cavalry and infantry dealt viciously with all internal dissent, destroyed cities and burned bridges. The Russians employed a similar scorched-earth tactic against Napoleon in 1812, as did the Red Army when Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union in 1941. It's a maneuver now being employed both domestically and internationally by Barack Obama.
The re-elect Obama-Biden machine has less sanguinary methods for dealing with discord in the ranks than the Macedonian army used 2,335 years ago. There are no goblets of poisoned wine, no toxic darts but the Obamians and Bidenites are no less effective. It took just hours for Democrats Cory Booker mayor of Newark, N.J. and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein to recant after they had the temerity to criticize our Nobel laureate.
Mayor Booker told NBC's "Meet the Press" that he was "very uncomfortable" with attacks on Republican Mitt Romney's tenure at Bain Capital, and he said, "If you look at the totality of Bain Capital's record, they've done a lot to support businesses, to grow businesses." Less than two hours later, Hizzoner was on Twitter "clarifying" his remarks. Apparently, the social network message wasn't good enough for the O-Team. That night, in an eerie re-enactment of "purge confessions" filmed by Josef Stalin's NKVD, Booker went before cameras in a Web video, saying, "I encourage it, for the Obama campaign to examine (Romney's) record and to discuss it."

It makes you wonder if there are any Democrats with even an ounce of integrity out there.
Stop wondering: There aren't.
You couldn’t be more right, Fly, there’s not a one.

Stop wondering; Obamacare answers your question.
Thanks for the ping jaz.
They just want to live. Can’t blame them.
“Scorched earth” - sounds plausible - and would explain Obama’s extreme left-ward policy in the face of plummeting poll numbers: He knows he’s gonna’ lose and wants to leave nothing left of America for his successor....
Would have been Senator, but for Nancy Reagan. Well aT least she didnt help.
“There you go, sendin’ out those negative waves again.”
There will be those who will support him, no matter what, but I believe a fairly sizable number of those who voted for him in 2008 will vote against him this time, or simply not bother to vote at all, which for our purposes, is the same thing, and helps Republicans.
Agreed...In my view there’s no way he can pull the wool over 50+% of the voters again, his anti-American agenda is out there for everyone to see.
Like you say, there are those who’ll vote for him no matter what but he’s hurting and he knows it.
