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?

"A spokeswoman for the Russian embassy in Cuba told Reuters the visit was “friendly” and the vessel was scheduled to leave Friday." (NY Daily News)

When they leave Ithink, you can try and change your color of yellow to something a bit more bold.

One last thing. Just so you know. A spy ship is not the same thing as ICBMs being in Cuba.

Russia wouldn't be that stupid and there really is no reason since they have SLBMs the same as us and they have land based ICBMs based throughout Russia.

Oh yea the thing was probably watched by drones also. The Navy has the MQ-4C Triton.

So be afraid if you want.

"The ship is reportedly armed with 30mm guns and anti-aircraft missiles."

LOL! Ithink a Harpoon anti-shipping missile would take care of that thing easily enough.

Besides...I have no proof but I'm betting our boomers are taking up position close to Russia right now..at least one of them is probably on station right at this very minute.

Not to mention we probably got attack subs near Cuba.

As a matter of fact our Navy probably knew a long time before this news ever hit the press that the Viktor Leonov was headed that way.

FYI..attack subs in addition to carrying ship killing torpedoes they also carry Tomahawk cruise missiles.

So that ship is being you watched..you can count on it.

Another cute,haha, story, harry. I'll just bet the Russsians have cardinal feathers tied to those "obsolete" weapons.

Maybe the cardinals can peck the egg off of two uninformed faces.

"The ship is reportedly armed with 30mm guns and anti-aircraft missiles."

I can see that it was a mistake to assume that you two keep yourselves informed about current events.

Right, Kendall.

And we should also ask, what “military equipment”?

After all, a 1795 British Army musket is “military equipment.” So is a 2013 pair of Russian army binoculars. Neither the musket nor the binoculars nor even a 1962 Mig, poses a serious threat to us.

Let’s not conclude Putin threatens us with “military equipment” in Cuba without identifying that equipment.

A heard a story about a mousy barn rat named Clyde. One day Clyde saw a pigeon to which someone, as a joke, had glued a cardinal’s feather. Clyde went screaming to all the other barn rats, “Run. I just saw a red-tailed hawk.”

"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 50 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.
