Truman made the tough, yet right decision in the end. The Japs were not surrendering and put up fierce resistance, as evidenced by Iwo Jima. If you don't recall, U.S. marine casualties actually exceeded the Japanese in that battle. So Truman realized that a land invasion of Japan to get them to surrender was out of the question. The only alternative to take the Japs out was to drop the big candlesticks.
Its so funny to read and hear you guys talk about the teleprompter.The right wing conservative's messiah, "The Great Communicator" Ronald Wilson Reagan used the teleprompter too.
She would be down there in waders down in a marsh with oil dripping off of her so photographers and reporters could get that image out. You betcha! Being there doesn't mean you're accomplishing shit. Too bad Obama doesn't have the magic wand that people expect him to wave to make this well just shut down. BP is going to be in deep stuff because of this. DOJ will get involved.
Obama lovers, instead of hypothetical questions such as what if Palin is running the country, why cant you face the fact that Obama is running the country and he is not doing anything? A normal leader would have visited the accident site and see what he can do to help the area. A normal leader would face the nation and say that the country is under control, no matter what happens in Greece. Not a freaking thing. Always playing blame games!! BP would pay for this mess!! What do you plan to do meanwhile?
He's done way more than G.W. Bush ever did during 2 terms in office. And I am thankful he's in office rather than an anti-American Republican that holds office for the benefit of himself and his friends/relatives. Don't scream about the financial bailout. It started with Bush who gave out money with NO strings attached whatsoever.
Without the bailout from Bush, we would have had financial meltdown. The Sub-Prime mess was from liberal scumbags like OBAMA and ACORN making it manditory to give loans to poor people for houses they couldn't afford. Learn your history you leftist idiots.
I thought I heard it was Bush's fault that Obama was born. If the Papa Bush dated Obama's mama, Obama wouldnt be around. Soon Obama will blame Lincoln. Without Lincoln Obama wont be in this mess.
If anti Bush people read this post. Why doesnt Obama visit the Arlington National Cemetery this weekend? Whether you are for or against the wars, I believe the President, as a representative of the people in the country, should pay his respect to the fallen soldiers.
