2016: Obama's America

Personally I'm not much into political based documentaries but this film seems to be garnering as much attention as anything Michael Moore has put out. What's your opinion on the politics of the film? The author? How the film itself was done and looks?

"Right now Putin has military equipment at Cuba. 90 miles from Key West."

The world of today is not like the world of the early 1960's.

I don’t know what I’d do if I were President Obama. Because of some important factors, I’m not yet sure the Russians are simply grabbing territory.

1. The current leaders in Ukraine deposed a legally elected government, and I’m don’t like aiding radical power-grabbers.

2. Russians, at 60%, are a majority in the Crimea.

3. The Crimea was part of Russia until 1954, when Nikita Khruschev, unilaterally and without consulting people living in the Crimea, declared it part of the Ukraine.

My idea of rational foreign policy doesn’t include jumping in a river without considering how treacherous the waters are.

I would hope our president, republican or not, would lead from strength, not from behind as obama does. Strength prevents war. I hate war.

Sorry, I should have said 38% approval, not 33%.

I mean what would you do if you were the president of a nation and another nation was trying to limit you military power?

I swear at some point in this nation's future a president is going take office and act like a cowboy with a foreign power and go after them and end up getting a huge number of soldiers killed.

Thank goodness Republicans aren't in power right now.

Pick your battles wisely...don't go down like Custer.

"If obama allows Russia to be more powerful, militarily, than the USA it could be very bad for us."

The very solution to that problem could itself lead to all out war.

Putin is one individual you'd better think long and hard about pushing around.

You may give him a push and he may very well reach out and pull you into a fight.

Ithink don't act so coy about an issue like this.

One misstep could get a heck of a lot of American soldiers killed.

Dont act tough just for the sake of projecting this image of toughness. Lots of times the guy puffing his chest out and making the threats ends up getting his teeth smashed in.

Just sayin.

Whether obama's influence is unique or not, is not the point. It can affect the next two elections. He is here now. Nothing Bush can do can affect us.

If obama allows Russia to be more powerful, militarily, than the USA it could be very bad for us. Right now Putin has military equipment at Cuba. 90 miles from Key West.

Only 33 per cent of Americans today approve of obama's handling of foreign policy.

While the general public might not care about Ukraine that much, I think we should try to stay involved a little. Putin is pulling the old, "we are protecting nationals" spiel that echos the Nazi in reference to the ethnic Germans in Czechoslovakia prior to WWII.

The EU should take the point position though and not the US. If Putin would take the Ukraine, or even just the valuable Crimea area, what's to say he wouldn't continue?

What about Russia? Is what's going on over there really any of our business?

I see the calls by Kerry for Putin to respect the sovereignty of Ukraine.

Thats funny though.

If for example one of our states decided to secede from the union does anyone really think that this nation would respect that states newfound sovereignty?

Not a chance in he11 that would happen!

So calls for Putin to show a little respect are hypocritical has hades.

"Too bad he and the media didn't listen to Palin and Romney about Russia."

Why? Nothing would be really different. The EU would still be acting the way it is now and the American people wouldn't care anymore than they already do about a nation they probably couldn't find on an unmarked map.

"What does obama being shunned by candidates have to do with Bush, Kendall?"

Hmmm, as I said it could have something to do that it happened to Bush as well, meaning it's not unique.

If you haven't took notice in your life, most 2nd term Presidents who are not exactly popular, are not usually sought out by Congress men and women running for office.

Many Republicans didn't want to be seen with Bush toward the end of his term. Many Dems don't want to be seen with Obama. If I remember correctly, Al Gore stayed away from Clinton in the last year of that presidency.

So the point Ithink is that the Dems staying away from Obama is no unique at all.

Posted 547 days ago.

What does obama being shunned by candidates have to do with Bush, Kendall? Talking about George Washington would be just as relevant.

Bush is gone. All this mess now is obama's. Too bad he and the media didn't listen to Palin and Romney about Russia.

"To us the people,.."

The people are slow of mind and lacking in patience or will power. The people are like a frog in a pot of water that is slowly warming up. It won't hop out of the pot as it warms to a boil because it gets used to the slow warm up and cannot see what is happening to itself.

"Democrats running for office are hiding from him."

Hardly surprising, the Republicans did it to Bush in his 2nd term. Congressional Republicans are as loyal as any Congressional Democrat to the President.

"No one I know wakes up in the morning and cries over the eternally changing climate."

You know why that is? Its because for a long time the climate has been fairly normal in its patterns.

Global warming is going to change that.

Also we really haven't seen anything real bad happen yet because of climate change .

On the climate change issue there is an interesting thing to think about.

How much of what comes out of left leaning channels is in response to what the right leaning channels are saying about the issue?

Ugh..Ithink. Is it really about what's going on in someone's bedroom?

That statement makes it look like the focus of your and others disagreement with homosexuality is all about the sexual aspects of the issue.

I'd like to see how many cases you can cite where someone was trying to describe or outline what goes on in a homosexuals bedroom.

The issue is about freedom to do as they wish without reprisal or discrimination.

Not the sexual proclivities of same sex couples.

Alas the only reason the sexual aspects of same sex couples is an issue is because rightwingers are making it an issue.

“Why do I need to be told daily, over and over, what some dumb sports star is doing in his bedroom? Truly, I don't want to know.”

Ah, Ithink. You’ve captured my sentiments. I refuse to develop an appetite for the national diet of salacious stories.

That’s why I prefer print news to TV. It’s easier to avoid trivial stories. With print, we don’t have to wait for the next story; we get to move on when we, not some NYC programmer, decide.

Climate change is kept on the front pages by the media and the democrats. To us the people, it always comes in last in the polls, in importance..No one I know wakes up in the morning and cries over the eternally changing climate.

Instead of issues important to us all, like improving the economy, we are blasted every day with special interest concerns that do not have any effect on the major problems of our country. First they tell us to stay out of their bedroom and then they shove us in it. I would love to stay out. Why do I need to be told daily, over and over, what some dumb sports star is doing in his bedroom? Truly, I don't want to know.

Controlling our minds and our money is the only objective I see coming from this administration and the media.

Yup, myth. Insurance lobbies' basically got what they wanted, when they wrote the ACA.
