Amen DI!

Not only is he refusing to commit ground troops to combat ISIS but he's threatening a veto if Congress sends him an anti-refugee bill that they are apparently considering. Like with the Ebola "panic" of last year, he is remaining calm and level-headed (and acting like an adult) while many so-called "leaders" are wetting their pants and pandering to the xenophobia and fear of Fox viewers and Rush listeners. Proud to have voted for this man TWICE!

Since when is POTUS

responsible for attacks committed by terrorists against other countries? US foreign policy- which has actually consisted of attacking ISIS w/air strikes and killing its leaders- had NOTHING to do with the attacks in France.

Teh stupid it burns!

To be fair, I don't think that ANY Republican was likely to win in 2008

but they REALLY shot themselves in the foot by picking Palin for VP (and we all dodged one helluva huge bullet). What I'll never understand is how/why she remained newsworthy/relevant/credible with the MSM and so many people for several years AFTERWARDS.

And I'm sure

That the media made sure to get Republican critics' *brilliant* plans to crush ISIS (though right now they're struggling more with primary debate questions), right? Right?

Are they suggesting that he may be

The next "great white hope" for the GOP, which currently has no sane/credible candidates at present- not that he is much better of course?

A Clinton supporter=Clinton machine?

And why are we supposed to be impressed by this endorsement? If several prominent sitting US Senators endorsed Bernie Sanders that would be a BFD. A former Ohio State Senator I knew nothing about? Not feeling the Bern yet.

Are you suggesting

That any result other than Bernie winning will be because of theft? Will you not respect the outcome of the primaries absent any real evidence of fraud?

I think that it's a bit early yet for predictions like this

Many people are not paying much attention yet. Primaries haven't even started, either. If Hillary wins the nomination, let's see what happens when people are actually forced to consider whoever the Republicans put up as their nominee. My guess is that most people will be a LOT more enthusiastic (or scared s***less of the Republican candidate) about voting for Hillary.

In the end it will just get vetoed by PBO

nothing will actually be accomplished and more time will be wasted. Hope the *satisfaction* that Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan feel if they pull this off (which is also still in question) is worth the waste of time and taxpayer money (which they obviously do NOT really care about).

*This should, however, show how necessary it will be to make sure that we at least hold on to the WH in 2016, esp. if the Senate stays Republican.

The same way we are all able to budget for catastrophic medical emergency visits/natural disaster

(i.e. we can't/don't)

In response to the original post, the idea of a Constitutional Convention lead by right-wing Tea Party legislators scares the s*** out of me and I hope that it NEVER happens- not for a constitutional "balanced budget" amendment or anything else their fevered imaginations might think of!
