Re: US presidential election 2012

Basically, all Barack has to do is allow every single Republican candidate (with a chance to win) blow up, and he'll win the election by default. And so far, the strategy is working.

Absolutely shocking how far things have devolved in America that we have Gingrich and Romney fighting for the chance to be president.

He's also not going to win the election, so it's sort of irrelevant to bring him up here. He's not a contender.
I would rather drink the fucking Kool-aid of someone with convictions and ideals that stand against the media and corporation lobbyists than worship some guy that comes up as the messiah backed up by big banks and the media and with a lousy slogan for the stupids "yes, we can" (what can you do, mr.Obama?) and few can even identify what the guy actually wants to do in the first place, what does he belive in?

Obama is all about rhetoric without any content, wishywashy stuff that sounds good to the ear but few people actually can rationally explain what he actually said he wants to do. I dont even think Obama is a bad person, I think he is weak and he is a puppet without knowing with and he doesnt have experience to stand up for anything that goes against the big banks and media who backed him up. For example everyone knows Obama used to be pro-Palestina, but he is so afraid of the Israel lobby he wont change anything in the US policy. Obama had 2 years with absolute majority when he could increase taxes for the rich but didnt, now he can blame republicans for his irresponsible stimilus packages that he couldnt back up with any funding. If Obama is a socialdemocrat/socialist he certanly doesnt even dare to be that, Kucinich would be a man of the left who would stand by his ideals. Obama is just a corporate puppet who will just do anything he is commanded to do by those advisers the big companies put in place to move Obama to the right direction, alot like Bush in many ways.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Re: US presidential election 2012

Obama is a weak ass president without convictions, but that doesn't mean Paul is a magical candidate. He has his holes. Just because someone has convictions doesn't make those convictions actually palatable to be president (general statement, not an indictment against Ron Paul).

Re: US presidential election 2012

Anyway, in the tragic situation we're in right now, I'd take a generally decent person with weak convictions in Obama, than the corrupt Gingrich and slickster Romney. They are both evil. And those are really the only three candidates with a shot at winning the presidency.

Re: US presidential election 2012

Gingrich must not win the nomination. If he does Obama will surely become president. Gingrich has more baggage than a Super Jumbo.

Russia To Discuss Missile Shield With Iran, China

Russia activates missile early warning radar system
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-15938494

"First, I am instructing the Defense Ministry to immediately put the missile attack early warning radar station in Kaliningrad on combat alert. Second, protective cover of Russia's strategic nuclear weapons, will be reinforced as a priority measure under the programme to develop out air and space defenses. Third, the new strategic ballistic missiles commissioned by the Strategic Missile Forces and the Navy will be equipped with advanced missile defense penetration systems and new highly-effective warheads. Fourth, I have instructed the Armed Forces to draw up measures for disabling missile defense system data and guidance systems if need be...

Fifth, if the above measures prove insufficient, the Russian Federation will deploy modern offensive weapon systems in the west and south of the country, ensuring our ability to take out any part of the US missile defense system, in Europe. One step in this process will be to deploy Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad Region. Other measures to counter the European missile defense system will be drawn up and implemented as necessary. Furthermore, if the situation continues to develop not in Russia's favor we reserve the right to discontinue further disarmament and arms control measures. Besides, given the intrinsic link between strategic offensive and defensive arms, conditions for our withdrawal from the New START Treaty could also arise."

Is this meant to show that Russia is escalating the missile crisis, knowing it is dealing with a pussy US President?

Re: US presidential election 2012

The race is now actually getting interesting.
Romney is still the overwhelming favorite, but with some good breaks, both Gingrich and Paul have a chance.

That, together with the proportional allocation of delegates in the primaries, is going to make for drawn-out and fun campaign. Awesome!

BTW, fantastic video for Paul up there.

Check this one too


“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
