1. Those poor war hawks

They didn't get to drop bombs, kill people and spend money on war.

Guess they will have to keep pushing for Iraq III

3. Nope, not to much if any.

Anything remotely positive concerning Pres O is usually banned while promoting bullshit scandal investigations such as the IRS missing e-mails which Issa and the rest of the GOP party and corporate media new about two years ago. Plus here on the DU RWers talking points are alive and well.

8. At least one did

Rachelle Maddow @ MSNBC did an extensive story on this last night. She rightfully pointed out that these chemicals could have easily been taken by ISIS and used indiscriminately. But Obama negotiated there removal and destruction and avoided a catastrophe. He wont be getting any credit soon but at least we know.

16. I have that in my stash, too, fresh.. when I need to bring it out for

those who give everyone credit but the President and SOS Kerry for Syria dumping their chemical weapons.. which they actually had! Shocking I know with all the whining that poor Assad didn't have any.

As this poster on TOD calls it..

"Alliance of Adversaries"

"When they write the history of how President Obama led the successful effort to remove WMDs from Syria two amazing facts – that he did it by eliciting the cooperation of Russia and Iran & that Syria was engulfed in civil war – will undoubtedly seem incredulous. That he did it without firing a single shot should serve as a lesson in the real power of diplomacy based on the fact that everyone at the table knows you’re not bluffing."

Thanks for keeping up with TOD and the Tweets. I miss out on a lot of these goodies.

TOD takes so long to load, I usually leave it in frustration. Same with DFA.

Yes, that pic is one of my faves, i recently posted it here:

19. Thanks for posting that in the other thread, too, fresh.. there's a few on here

who only listened to the cliff notes propaganda version of what passed for all those negotiations for over a year from PBO and SOS Kerry.

That's the way it was with TOD when I had my old laptop.. I would wait forever for it to download.. this new one with Windows 7 works like magic compered to before. I'm very grateful!

22. I've been wanting a Windows 7 laptop for some work I'm trying to do; but all I see is Windows 8

when I go online or in the stores. No Windows 7. Did your son take the laptop back to 7?

23. No, I ordered a new laptop from Dell online in Dec and I told them specifically that

I wanted Windows 7. I had read on DU that windows 8 was junk. My old one was XP and a 2006 one.. I feel like a new person with this Dell Latitude.

24. It's called a Dell Latitude? I'll look that up. There are some things I can't do well on my beloved

OSX (not Mountain Lion) iMac desktop. I won't get rid of it, but I'm having a bit of trouble now. Where did you order yours from?

26. Thanks... So you told them what you wanted and they installed Windows 7.

Is there a DVD/CD ROM/RW drive to upload music CDs and other media to view on it? Did it include a warranty, customer service, etc? That sounds like all I need, and the price isn't bad.

27. I told the sales woman what I wanted and I think they already have laptops with Windows 7

and windows 8 ready to go. When I got the invoice of what I had ordered before the final sale I saw it had "windows 8".. so I got a hold of her again and said "Windows 7 is what I wanted!".. you have to double check them.. they're busy.

3 month warranty, And, yes I can view my DVDs and upload music. The only thing I didn't ask for 'cause I thought it just came with it(all my old ones had it) was memory chip slot. So, I can only upload my pics with my USB cord.

If I ever get another one down the road I will make sure that's included too.

6. Declared chemical weapons

This is an excellent start but I'm thinking there might be some undeclared WMD's around. Syria might have forgotten to declare them.

what the President has accomplished.

11. Unbelievable irony.

Bush starts a war with non-existent WMDs. Obama ends a war (Afghanistan) while destroying *real* WMDs.

If I had to pick one of these, let's see.......

28. Or that said he should give back the Nobel Peace Prize, or like the RWers say, it means nothing now?

NO, LET'S NOT.

People are soaking up the memes of conservative media, it's on a subconscious level. Brain wash, rinse, repeat.

There is something for every personality and life experience they know how to appeal to. Whatever issue a person has, they can insert their meme.

Many of us tried to reason out what was going on the time and called names and cheerleaders for wars. But it really wasn't about Obama or us.

The vitriol though, was not justified.
