what exactly did he not have access too? or was he not paying attention as a U.S. Senator. voting present the majority of the time may have attributed to his lack of foresight and judgement. can't blame his ineptitude on hindsight.

Well absolem , isn't hindsight just about as perfect as it can be ? Unfortunately our president didn't have access to that ! And yes mod , I think they are finally getting the point about just how big of threat these radicals are 1

It would seem there is, albeit marginal, genuine concerns among mid-east governments that Isis is indeed a threat to them.I am optimistic.

OWO...#1. he simply shifted the method of cost. the taxpayers were and are paying the healthcosts. #2 federally insuring(in place for years) losses by the banking industry allowed the risky moves by the banks. forcing them to bear the brunt of their actions would stem many of the bad decisions. the banks should have been allowed to fail. #3.the major removal of forces was pre-determined before Obama and we are still there. now Obama announced a potentially decades long fight against ISIS et. al...i'll assume you are o.k. with that. yes..the president has been allowed to make the decisions that he has with no help from the republicans. like nascarnut has said...all politicians lie...but every lie has a truth...it just depends on which you choose to focus on.

Now back to topic : No #1 Obamas legacy is that despite the republican strategy of total obstruction he was able to help 40 million qualify for health insurance ! No#2 He made decisions that kept our economy from another great depression brought on by Dubya's disastrous economic policies ! No #3 He has ended or will end the 2 wars that his predecessor started on lies and deception ! Need more ? Not bad considering he had NO HELP AT ALL FROM THE RIGHT !

that last comment should have been under the energy topic...but OWO brought it up in his point.

OWO...you are correct. people would be very upset at that situation. however, people should be upset when they have paid the gas tax and have perceived that the funds have either been mis-appropriated or even squandered. maintaining the many routes of travel is an expensive endeavor and perhaps the lack of foresight by the DOT and a the respective approving bodies have allowed us to find ourselves in this position. i hope you will be wise enough to agree that any form of energy that we use to propel our chosen forms of trasportation will fall victim to the tax vultures at some point. the source of energy may change but the taxes will be constant.

Ohwiseone: you must have been gone a few days. When are you going back?

More leftist drivel. Are people hungry because we support Israel >LOL NO WE have the fattest poor on the planet.

Are our roads needing repair because of foreign aide? Hardly.

In case you did not notice...i agreed with you.

What I'm saying is just take a one year hiatus from supporting the world ! One year !...... Give all of our dependents a heads up and say " you're going to have to tighten your belt for a year and we will get back to you after that " .

OWO...everyone's bread gets buttered. Rather than argue with you about my facts, I will just say that I agree with you that it would be nice to keep all monies we "give" away and utilize it 100% here at home. Preferably in my pocket. Tired of working at the massage parlor and truckstop.

Ohwiseone

Yes absolem they have and much like republicans they know who is buttering their bread ! Point is we have enough to keep us busy right here at home without financing their whole country ! Heres a novel idea , don't spend one more dollar for any other country for one year and use that money to fix our roads and bridges , feed the hungry here , etc,etc ! I think the world would still be there in a year and we would be better for it !
