    Republicans=Hawks/Democrats=Doves?

    Found this interesting....

    While the common perception is that Republicans are all about war and Democrats a peace lovin hippies, The doomsday clock moved 18 minutes closer toward midnight (net) while Democrats were in the Oval Office and 13 minues AWAY from midnight (net) while Republicans were in the Oval Office... Not saying that the Oval Office is the end all-be all but...it is interesting...

    Note-the only times there was a change in the Party contolling the White House were when it went from a Democrat to a Republican and the net was 1 minute closer to midnight and the incoming party holds the office longer, I gave all three to the Republicans.

    This is an incredibly tragic thing. But perhaps one of the most successful propaganda victories in the history of the world. We haven't just destroyed the anti-war movement... we have made an anti-war movement impossible. Just the very act of protesting a war in America is treason against god and country. Even the few actual liberal democrats left are generally afraid to say anything in opposition.

    Maybe because its based on the emotions and tensions of other countries towards the US? Those that wish to nuke us think twice with the GOP in office while when a dem is in office, we appear to be "weak". Since 9/11, terrorist attempts and plots and "success" has only increased since Obama took office. Maybe thats why Obama doesnt want to call the attacks terrorism cause then he will keep looking weak to the rest of the world.

    Exactly what I said. This is one of the greatest propaganda victories in the history of the world - opposing our Christian Jihads overseas isn't even considered a legitimate cause on the Left anymore.

    Since they voted in mass to go to "war" with both Iraq and Afgahn, I would say it was never on list of causes to stand against. It could just be me, but it seems like they just gave you a bunch of lip service.
