Influence

What influence? The only influence he has is bought with our money distributed as largesse to those totally unworthy of it. He's too busy destroying America to pay much attention to what goes on elsewhere in the world anyway.

The media is telling us to just accept decline? This is sounding more and more like the late 1970s all the time.

Of course it's not Obama’s fault, Danny.

The entire world is racist.

Besides, George W. Bush.

“(Obama’s) a nice person, he’s very articulate this is what’s been used against him, but he couldn’t sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.”

Okay, so let me get this straight... President Bush was responsible for everything, large and small, that happened in the country or anywhere else in the world; President Ass Clown isn’t responsible for anything that’s happened, because well... just because. Another example of the vile, twisted, perversion called “libtard logic”.

I think we coulda starved them out. The Russians were mobilizing eastward after Germany’s surrender, The Japanese were completely isolated. Their navy and air force were totally destroyed. They could not obtain fuel or other critical resources for a modern society. Nothing getting in, nothing getting out. No petrol, no food, no medicine.

However, millions of Japanese would have suffered and died. The Progs would have still had their panties in a wad over that.

Horrible as they were, the atomic bombs were the most humane way to end the war.

How do you think the 75 people who were watching CNN felt about that?

He says :” Now, the power of the presidency has been declining through at least our last two presidencies with president George W. Bush and there's no magic wand that President Obama can wave to solve that.”

There isn't?

How about he give back that peace prize then?

Returned Churchill’s bust.
Abandoned Poland and Czech Republic.
Travelled the world apologizing for America.
Rediculous theater with “Office of the President Elect.”

And that was just the first week.

Dan Rather is trying to keep his goat smelling butt out of prison.

Contrary to popular belief Little Dan didn’t put out forged docs on Bush to affect the election.

Little Dan put out forged docs on Bush to get the issue of forgery front and center so that if anyone asked questions about the content of the al Qaida docs recovered in Afghanistan, which were being made public in the CTC at West Point’s Harmony Database, the claim would be made Bush was forging the docs to make it appear as if our little lefty friends were collaborating with the terrorist.

The doc they were most worried about is listed as doc # AFGP-2002-600321 in the West Point Database.

The “spontaneous” lie at Benghazi was also concocted to contradict what’s in that doc.

What’s in the doc they are trying so hard to contradict?

OBL himself says the media, meaning the news, is 90% of the preparation for the battle.

Simply put our little lefty friends and their allies in the news media have been orchestrating news stories as part of the preparation for the terrorist attacks.

Do you get the reason for “spontaneous” lie now?

There are no “preparations” for the terrorist attacks, they’re “spontaneous”.

In Rather’s twisted perspective it should have happened a long time ago.

Yo, Danny Boy, as the current titular head of the progressive movement that has sought for 100 years to bring down the USofA, Obama does indeed share the blame, you blithering idiot.
