"American"-What are you smoking. Are your "studies" from the blaze?..rush limbaugh? shawn hannety? You don't have a study that says that. You just made that up. Just like the rest of your boring drivel. Bin Laden's dead, GM is alive…and that eats at you, you can't stand it. Success under Obama is fact. The only thing stopping him from being even more successful is the record number of roadblocks set up by Republicans trying to derail the US. They still fail. They failed when they won, they have failed when they lost.

"improve any progressive Democratic efforts to improve yet another facet of American interest" Many studies have been done and the latest 6 year on shows that democrats can not improve only derail America.

The spin for what? Did they spin for gwbush? Will they spin for Obama? Will they spin for <insert Democratic President>? Isn't Obama working on it? And the Republicans continue to try and derail efforts to improve any progressive Democratic efforts to improve yet another facet of American interest. Pathetic really.

Really? You couldn't find a more unbiased source than Charles Krauthammer? Why didn't you just ask Shimon Perez?

"We heard some strong words from Charles Krauthammer Monday night as he blasted the Obama administration over the weekend's nuclear deal with Iran. Krauthammer likened the actions of President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry to Europe's appeasement of Adolf Hitler in the late 1930s, when Germany's borders were expanded.""He argued that the United States has now formally signed off on Iran remaining very close to possessing a nuclear weapon.

"[The deal] is the West blessing Iran as a threshold nuclear state, always on the verge, a month or two away from a breakout and becoming a nuclear state," he said."

Face it, Iran is nothing but a little puissant nation that cannot extend its military power beyond its borders. Their navy is nothing but a bunch of speed boats, outdated destroyers, and a few submarines that just one of our carrier battle groups could annihilate in a matter of hours. They only threat they impose right now upon the world is terrorism. Iran wants to become a player in the world and the only way they can do that is with a nuclear weapon. Possessing nukes gives them automatic membership in an elite club and gives them clout. One nuke in a speedboat with a suicide crew will turn that boat into a force more formidable than any carrier battle group in the world. Negotiations with a leadership that will sacrifice its own people to achieve their goals and beliefs will not work. For the most part, the Iranian people are a good people but it’s their fanatical religious leadership that controls them. Back under the Shaw, the Iranian people were a strong ally of the U

The people of the middle east have been fighting one another since biblical times and I don't see them stopping any time soon. I know the flow of oil is important but I see this as a world problem - not an American problem. Eisenhower said it best when he said "beware of the military industrial complex". America's involvement may have been in ignorance of Ike's warning and for the benefit of big business and the Pentagon. Negotiation is the right way to go. We can always re-impose the sanctions if the agreement fails tio materialize.

Show me one example of a personal attack, where Marcia, Christopher, Judeye or Psychfux called another persona an idiot, stupid, half-wit. Not to mention Steiner, who can't put together a coherant sentace without putting women down.

Blinders? Really? You think that liberals have blinders on? Were you around during any of the Nixon/Ford/Reagan/Bush/Bush years? I voted for Reagan in '84, just before I found out who really wore blinders. I had them on in '84, and that was a mistake.

Right on the money American,I can't believe jo1952 says she "cant see those people she mentions" making personal attacks!! Are there any ophthalmologists in this area? Marcia when was the last time you were in the middle east? Yes I was on several different occasions. Do you realize how much of the medical care for the Palestinians is provided by Israel? Do you know how many Palestinians are employed in Israel?

I see we have another addition to the left wing liberal we should all wear blinders club. I won't even go into how many times Christopher has bastardized my user name, or a couple of things Marcia has said or how even the name of Psycho along with his comments. No Why don't we all just wear blinders like a majority of the left does.

It's rather funny how some writers claim differently, but all the personal attacs seem to come from the right. I don't see Christopher, Judeye, Psychofux or Marcia making personal attacks. At least Iconoclast called American out on it. American "half-wit." 1Laona, calling other's out. Can't you just keep to the issue?

joew,the problems in the middle east are very complex. To act like Israel is innocent when they keep all the Palestinians in Warsaw like ghettos without access to food, medical care, etc. makes one understand the anger of the Palestinians. The world came in and took away their country and put them on reservations. Perhaps they should have taken over another country to give to Israel. Perhaps take away your community and kick you out. You would feel no animosity, right?

"There is, without a doubt, an effort by the press to tout this "peace deal" in order to divert attention from the health care crisis, and the economy, and jobs, and ... you get the picture." Absolutelt true. The world diplomatic corps are so concerned about the ACA webaite that they have spent the last six months negotiating this peace agrement. I wonder what other domestic problems the world wants to cover up by creating treaties?

And Judeye, you need to read between the lines of the poll you posted. Where did the biggest increases occur? Curiously, it happens to be in highly pro-socialist countries, Kenya, where O's father is from, and Indonesia, where he lived. All places that support his socialist policies or feel a connection to him on a personal level. Shockingly, Israel, whose opinion really does matter, showed a decline. So realistically, a useless tool in determining anything. It's easy to get positive results when you're basically polling your "friends and family" network.

Judge ye, I am so sick of know nothing Libs claiming that those that don't agree with them are hoping for this country to fail. Quite to the contrary. It is you and your ilk that have been rooting for the failure of the US and the ideals that it was built upon. Basically, take everything you believe and realize that this country was founded upon the opposite. You are the one that is praying for the downfall of this nation so that you can implement your socialist-based agenda. And as for this "peaceful resolution", you've just proven that Libs have no ability to learn from history. As with the nightmare that is Obamacare, the rest of us predicted its failure based on facts, logic and reality, not on a hope for failure, and this agreement will be no different. As someone else said, you'd have a better chance of sticking your hand in a bag of rattlesnakes and not getting bitten, than of having this agreement be successful.

Do you also agree with this jedeye "A newly elected councilwoman in Seattle is calling for a workers’ revolution.

On Nov. 18, Kshama Sawant, an open Socialist, accused The Boeing Company of “economic terrorism” and encouraged employees of the company to “take over the factories.”

Of course you would agree with David Pluffe Judeye,I wouldn't have expected anything less. What should we do when Iran tests their first nuclear device Judeye? Remember how we got suckered by the N. Koreans Judeye? Worked out real well didn't it? We are being taken for a ride once again and none of this "feel good" stuff will lessen the chance of conflict,it will only increase it! Iran is the #1 exporter of support for terrorism in the world Judeye and you trust those snakes to uphold their part of the deal? Wake up Judeye,wake up!

There is, without a doubt, an effort by the press to tout this "peace deal" in order to divert attention from the health care crisis, and the economy, and jobs, and ... you get the picture.

How many peace deals were signed in the 90s between Israel and Palestine? How many succeeded? This will be no different. These fundamentalist states cannot be reasoned with. They will renege on the conditions you can almost bet the ranch on it.

I will not applaud this waste of time deal. I will applaud when we have solutions to problems on the homefront.

And judeye - who cares what a bunch of Euro-trash socialists think of Obama or thought of Bush. It's a lot more important what the US citizens think. But you and marcia continue your Euro-idolization. Utter filth.

IAMBill...ahhhh...wonder if that has anything to do with now they can be insured.

You know..that Obamcares law..the AFFORDABLE CARE ACT. The one that will help people be able to get insurance that they need at a very low to no cost. Now if only those states with uninsured folks in them would expand medicaid so that more low income people could qualify. Oh that is right many, like Gov Perry where one in four people in his state are uninsured, choose politics over helping his own people.

And as we all know...nothing is for free. Just who do you think was paying for the uninsured people when they show up in the ER? Now if only they had gone to the doctor when it was something that could be easily...and cost effectively..treated....Which if they are covered by insurance they would have been able to do....
