My beautiful thread is turning into Dr. Phil. Enough with the marriage comparisons!

So Al-Queda is happy about the transfer of resources to Afganistan?

As far as "being a leader", you ever hear of the idea of "leading by example"? Do leaders have to be arrogant pricks that tell people what to do to the letter? Would you enjoy working for a leader like that, and would you gladly stay on with his company?

The people who attacked us don't care, but the rest of the world does. That will in turn make it harder for the assholes to maintain their security and support. Muslims know that Al-Queida is not a constructive organization...but it sure got our attention and many of them at least respect that.

Bush lost out on Iraq partly because our allies turned against us there, for the reason that we were arrogant. We lied to our own people about the threat to get the war started, and lied to them. We then acted like a "real leader" over there....and they all left. But hey, at least Bush had balls!

And really, telling me you have a happy marriage can only mean one thing - you are not the big balled, "do what I say because it's the hard choice" person you want others to be (or your wife has some serious self esteem issues). You have to know compromise and the power of words to make a marriage work. My ex didn't seem to care about that. She's with another man and still miserable, I am with a great woman and happy. Politics is the same, it just replaces rolling pins with thermonuclear warheads.

I'm sure the Taliban in Turkey is happy.

First, I want a leader that will say "No" to a plan that grants other nations the authority to dictate salaries of some U.S. CEOs. Secondly, I have no problem with authority, giving or receiving. I'm not mad at the establishment or "the man". If a CEO is running a damn good company that I am EMPLOYED by and he tells me to sit down and shut the f*ck up, I'm listening. Why would you vote for a President that is willing to give in so easily? This is not selling widgets here and corporate leadership is different than leading the USA. Any sign of weakness empowers our enemies. And I know your glasses are rose colored, but people hate us.

Big Balls > Cutting military spending and hoping the world will forgive us

No, I can leave my work at the office. I don't carry work home to my family. I have the ability to keep the two seperate. Why does it matter to you about my ball size and marriage anyway? Liberals always try to relate the President to the common man.

And here I was thinking Dubya got elected because people felt he "was a guy you could have a beer with".

I really don't know what you are talking about regarding other countries dictating companies CEO salaries, but I am sure it has to do with getting the economic work thats being done setup on a more global level, and it must have been a big deal to someone.

I've stated my views on defense spending before - I don't think it makes a whit of difference if we spend 8 times as much as any other nation on defense vs. 10 times as much.

Taliban in Turkey? Wha?
