Why do you think President Obama is sending military advisers into Iraq?

  1. Feels guilty about losing Iraq
  2. Compassion for Muslims
  3. It's all about the oil
  4. Truly concerned about national security

Did you see the recent US Supreme Court decision about police searching cell phones? The decision was a no brainer.

This is the place to find out exactly what questions pollsters were asking.

The newest NBC/WSJ poll is not posted yet.

The previous NBC/WSJ poll was referred to in today's NBC online article. I'll c/p...

"NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll conducted by the polling organizations of Peter Hart (D) and Bill McInturff (R). Jan. 12-15, 2013. N=1,000 adults nationwide. RV = registered voters"

4 of Biden's deferments were "student." According to billgrrlogic, that makes him a yellow belly.

I feel Obaba HAD to get out of Iraq because he KNEW 'the war is lost'...Harry Reid said so long before Obaba became president...so I don't know why he's even sending Green Beret 'advisors' over there....to help fight a 'lost' war...

"What difference does it make?" In the end, he got his deferrment either way!

See what I did there? ;)

"News" about Cheney's deferments is way moldie-oldie stuff.

Way back machine: 9-2-2008

"Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War, the same number of deferments received by Vice President Dick Cheney, and later was disqualified from service because of asthma as a teenager."

My, oh my. Selective memory, PJinfinity? I'd say yes...

But if you'd like sources about Cheney's health problems, it would be instructive to read this:

"Republican right-winger, Dick Cheney didn't love war so much back when he had to shoulder up a rifle. During the Vietnam era, Cheney hid behind FIVE (5) DRAFT DEFERMENTS."

Dick Cheney has had a long list of health maladies all his life. That he got draft deferments shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Had he been drafted, he would most likely would have washed out of the military during the physical examination portion of the intake process.

-- Republican President George W. Bush

"I believe very deeply in the proposition that what we did in Iraq was the right thing to do."

-- Dick Cheney

3-22-14 "Ohio Democrats held a “Welcome Home” party for convicted voter fraud felon Melowese Richardson this week.

"Al Sharpton gave the convicted Democratic voter a big hug. Melowese voted twice for herself in 2012 and three times for her comatose sister!

"Melowese got a hero’s welcome by local Democrats at the party...

"...Richardson candidly admitted to Cincinnati’s Channel 9 in February 2013 that she voted twice in the 2012 election. “I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States,” she proclaimed in the interview."

Not sure what sounds more Vietnam-like, the potential for Saigon Evacuation 2.0, or talk of "military advisers".

This wasn't some confused old lady or a small time crook. It's funny how these bogus investigations always lead right back to the republican party.

Robert Monroe of Shorewood Wis. was charged Friday with 13 felonies related to his voting a dozen times in five elections between 2011 and 2012, using his own name along with his son’s and his girlfriend’s son. The charges followed a WisPolitics**** review of records from the John Doe investigation that revealed the investigation into Monroe’s voting habits. ”During 2011 and 2012, the defendant, Robert Monroe, became especially focused upon political issues and causes, including especially the recall elections,” says the criminal complaint against Monroe.

More proof of voter fraud from the republican party.

"Decimated and on the run"

Because President Obama said it, that makes it so??

Sending "military advisors" sounds eerily similar to Vietnam. Is this the right course?

Al-Qaeda: "Decimated and on the run" (According to Obama) yet they are closing in on Baghdad

Obama's latest foreign-policy triumph has taken the cities of Mosul and Tikrit, and is now bearing down on Baghdad. We live in a world set ablaze by this President's flaming ignorance, arrogance, and failure. He was eager to check off the "get out of Iraq" box on his to-do list, for the pleasure of his far far-Left supporters, so he didn't work out a status-of-forces agreement. Which means there was no American presence to help when the al-Qaeda, which has been falsely described as "decimated" and "on the run" by Hussein Obama, came calling, and the Iraqi government forces folded up in a rout, despite outnumbering the attackers by a good five to one. (One Mosul resident spotted Iraqi troops shucking their uniforms and slipping into track suits, to make running away more stylish and comfortable.
