I believe our country is too pussified to handle a real leader
Saying we are pussified is an understatement.
Yeah, the pussification of 'merica has been a thorough success.
Patton, MacArthur, Nimitz and Halsey. Those men were giants but with a political albatross hung from their necks. If MacArthur had his way, China would not be a problem today, N. Korea would not exist.
Patton did not need the Army, he was a wealthy man from California so why'd he take a ration of shit from politicians and political suck-up generals? He was a great American. Contrary to what liberal "historians" say, Patton was not crazy, he was magnificent.
I never pass up a chance to teach the G-Kids about them all including Grant and Lee.
You can bet your ass obama would have fired them all.
The left claims to hate bullies however, if you do not agree with them. They become the worst bullies you ever saw.

Try 100% Constitutionally protected speech being attacked by "our" injustice department .
You are as always right on point, and yes, obama would have kep an inept general like mcclellen in charge and we would hae two countries.
General George B. McClellan.
Oh well, I thought it was interesting LOL!!
When I learned to ride a horse, I learned on the McClellan saddle, which had some of the characteristics of an English saddle and a Western saddle. He was not only a good General, but also a creative and inventive person, and that invention saved a lot of VERY sore asses, including yours truly.
informative and intellectually challenging posts, my skull muscle has become atrophied :<)
Here's one to exercise your 12 cranial nerves:
When we consider the almost-implemented impeachment of POTUS Nixon, with the enumerated counts/charges [articles of impeachment] as written by the House of Reps, at that time..........
AND when we consider the articles of impeachment transmitted by the House to the Senate in the Clinton case.............
and when we consider the potential litany of high crimes and misdemeanors obviously committed by our present POTUS............
WHY, will the present House of Representatives not do their duty under the constitution, and implement impeachment proceedings against the present POTUS??
They're worried about the race card being played. Just my opinion.
They adopted that plan from the begiinning, any criticizem of the potus was instantly chalked up as racism. He and the AG keep playing the race card and the average low information voter buys into it. On top of that, our so called elected officials do not have the spine to do the job they were eleceted to do. I say, a pox on all their houses/
I have to do some assuming when discussing why obama is not being impeached. In my estimate he could be impeached and removed from office using charges brought against both Nixon and Clinton if he could be personally connected to the crimes, phone calls, memos or emails. I do not believe the citizens of the U.S. feel the passion they felt for the impeachment of Nixon. His crimes closely resembled those of organized crime, people understood breaking and entering to steal political secrets to benefit his political career was blatantly criminal. It had not been long since the government hearings on organised crime. The cover up was clumsy and made the image of Nixon the crook.
Clinton . He had too much of a history to try avoiding the truth about his personal life and instead of admitting everything and getting on with business he chose to commit perjury, convince others to purjure themselves and commit bribery. Had all his other bad behavior been included in the articles of impeachment he may well have actually been convicted.
obama's criminal misbehavior has not officially been linked to him personally. It all appears to be partisan politics which is generally expected by the population as a whole, thus, little outrage. obama must be personally linked to the criminal wrong doing, otherwise attempts to impeach him will be seen as partisan and racist attacks. The crimes you and I see him committing, to the apparent majority of Americans, are policy and they hope it's for a good and moral purpose.
IMHO, if the House try to Impeach obama I'd like for it to be after the January swearing in of the new Senate.
Linking high crimes and misdemeanors directly to the POTUS is what the House's responsibility IS. They are to conduct their own investigations to validate each proposed article of impeachment. Those articles proposed, but which cannot be validated are rejected, and the remaining litany [like a Grand Jury indictment] is formally walked across to the Senate, which has the affirmative duty to conduct a formal trial of the facts, with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court presiding.
The head scratcher is WHY will the House not act. I agree, it would be best to wait till the Republicans regain the Senate, and the House retains its Republican majority, in November, but no candidate who is silent on the issue or actively avoids it, should get ANY of our votes. This is an issue that is close to being an existential one for the continuing life of the USA, as the founders envisioned it, and the Constitution directs it.
Every branch right now is negligent in their duty and it's time for the fourth of the checks and balances, the people, to start paying attention and applying pressure to our elected (and appointed) officials. Lest we also be negligent in our duty.
Fat chance of the people doing anything, we have a country that knows more about the family of whores (kardashians) than they know about their own government. And I agree, baohner should impeach himself, he is not a leader anymore the obama.
If Congress presents charges to be investigated they'd darn well better be solid. If there is no chance of linking obama to a crime bringing the charge for investigation by the House is a waste of time the media will exploit to the end. "Phony charges". We don't need to risk losing the presidency before campaign season even begins. IF we get the House and Senate we can put obama in a box. If there is a solid case for impeachment, hang him high!
You know, that's the other real let-down in the protections of this Republic's liberties. The media. The founders created the 1st amendment in part so journalists could hold the government accountable, not cover up and protect it.
Going up against the media is impossible. Just have to carefully reduce our exposure, they are nearly perfect at waiting and watching for a faux pas. Omnipotent.
You are right on point, the main stream media has carried the water for the potus since day one. The worst part, the average low information voter is clueless, I was a t friends and his leftist wife was making the argument that Israel and Russia were doing the same thing. How do you have a discussion with someone who actually thinks that they are the smae thing.
As I mentioned in an earlier post the citizenry had no doubt about Nixon being a crook, impeaching him would have been a picnic in the park.
Clinton lied and nearly everyone knew it but Republicans took a beating in the press anyway, "it's all about sex and everyone does it".
In both cases the creep broke the law for personal reasons.
obama is apparently breaking the law. The public's perception, in my opinion, is that it is politicians doing business as usual and for many constituents and political allies he is doing good for the country.
Impeachment is not going to be a battle between Republicans in the House and obama. It will be between the Republicans and everyone else until the Senate convicts him.
If they don't convict obama will be known for whipping up on hate monger racist obstructionist Republicans who wasted millions of dollars and obama's valuable time that he could have used for the nation's work. Any of that sound familiar?
I don't think we can afford to lose a chance to hold the House, Senate and Executive just to make a show. Wisely choose which battles to fight . Make sure you have enough of the right ammunition.
I truly beleive this o be the beginning of the end.
The Senate cannot convict, UNLESS the House issues a bill of impeachment, which enables the "trial" in the Senate.
In other words--No indictment= no trial: No trial=no conviction possible.
Fact, if obama was white, he would have been inpeached.
No one has said anything about skipping any of the process.
They certified that I ACTUALLY HAD ONE, and it seemed to be working OK.
Kenny Rogers head full of hair back?
The saddle aside, he was not a good war general, there is plenty of information out there about him to back up my statement.
as to whether the judgments regarding his field generalship are substantially correct OR the product of the long standing feuding and back biting between Lincoln and Mac. Those on Lincoln's "side" were known to concoct very negative commentaries of questionable validity.
Those on Mac's side were able to counter most of that stuff as second guessing of the worst kind. But Mac was insubordinate, and like our other more modern Mac, he deserved harsh opprobrium.
