A two year term for the House of Representatives should be a hint as to what the thinking was. It wasn't intended to be a life time job.
Midnight in the oasis
With my goat in my bed
Shadows painting our faces
Traces of romance in our heads
Re: "Oh my gosh.....and if you are right, would Obama get credit?
You would have to waterboard a RWNJ before they would give Obama credit for anything.
polecatt, says nuking nukin n. korea would send a SUBTLE message. Well, we know how RWNJ's will react and that's with hysteria because they don't know how to do anything else.
Hackers hack into a JAPANESE company from somwhere in the world and it's the progs fault? Good thinking, fraud!
Re: "rob, go to Miami."
Thanks, I'll be going that way but to the west coast. When I, go to my favorite cuban restaurant I'll be sure to ask their opinion. What is to be gained by having an enemy 90 miles from our shore? Time has passed for the old exiles the younger ones are more for it than against it. The cuban people are definitly for it.
Right, flop! The biggest joke is before castro, cuba was run by a US backed dictator that was stealing all the money while the cuban people were starving in the streets. Their economy was based on mafia run casino's and only a few made out. People have short memories.
So, fraud you are saying it was ok to attempt to normalize relationsin the 70's with a brutal communist dictator in china with 2 billion subjects but it's not ok to do so with 6 million people off of our coast. The embargo placed on cuba for 50 years has hurt the people but did nothing to change the regime. The only reason to keep it is for spite.
Re: "Yeah fraud, let's play kissy face with mass murderers, the Castro brothers."
Right, polecat you mean like what, Nixon did when he went to China.
New business opportunities in Cuba, fraud. The average age of an American car is about 60 years old. There was no reason to not normalize relations with Cuba except for the political clout of the exiles.
The American Frackers aren't doing it for the Flag, fraud, they do it because the technology is now available and to make money. We ain't communist, fraud, they work in America not for America.
Re: "What were his sanctions?"
Duh! Sanctions on their largest banks and energy companies, freezing of assests. Not able to get credit and lots more.
Re: "The drilling and fracking has been going on, on private property, PERIOD!"
Right, fraud, as it should be! Most federal land has been put aside for a reason. It's like money in the bank only to be used when it absolutly has to be.
Re: "If you did you homework, you would see that oil drillers have cut their requests for drilling permits in half in the last couple of months because the market has driven prices down"
polecatt, that's funny you said in another post that Obamy wouldn't issue the drilling permits.
Sanctions were working on their economy before the drop in the price of oil. The ruskies won't admit defeat they are still trying to get over the embarrassment of the breakup of the soviet union.
The break up of the soviet union was caused mainly by plummeting oil prices in an economy that was in crisis at the time. Is the US and it's allies trying to influence the price of oil to act as another sanction? It's possible.
There is no pressure on the producers to cut production to get the price back up.
Yeah, flop don't ruin the poster boy, for manliness and leadership, of the RWNJ's. I, think they wanted to put that putin guy on the Tea Party ticket.
