More "Obama Historic": see link HERE:  *extracted* ...   Very good. (!) So the CEO of the US just admits that "killing people" is one of his skills. OK, if this is true, then he's admitted he's a psychopath, in his own words - but does that come as much of a surprise? For me, not at all. I guess that especially in the modern world, it takes that kind of mentality - a power addict who loves to (ab)use power - to be in a position of world's chief henchman. What other skills...
 If the only way for "lefties" to get news with a slant to the left of Mussolini is via the medium of comedy, then that demonstrates where the corporate media stands, ideologically. As regards the US mainstream media in the US goes, Noam Chomsky (love  him or hate him) said it best - and there is no disputing this: "The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum -...
Obama redefines cancer? No surprises there; redefinition is standard practice amongst rogue politicians. The previous administration were masters of it, covering a huge variety of topics, such as torture, contraception, spying laws, freedom, manufacturing jobs, civil rights, presidential power, carbon dioxide (!), democracy, privacy,  the Endangered Species Act, social service role of nonprofits...  the list goes on and on.   Obama, the ultimate faux liberal, is...
 
 And when that government - aka your "single source" is fully merged with, and controlled by big business and their army of corporate lobbyists - the "liberal" label starts to look kind of inappropriate. And considering that the Obama policy set, taken as a whole, is to the right of both Nixon and Reagan, perhaps the term "liberal" has been re-defined.
 Obama is a failure. However, it is impossible to gauge how presidents perform in the area of economics... it's a complex dynamical system and there are way too many variables and unknowns to be able to slap the blame and point the finger. For example, many people have credited the Clinton presidency as being responsible for the economic boom years of the 1990s - but it has been claimed that the (relative) economic successes of the 1990s were as a result of the policies...
 Perhaps one should go back to the originators of ObamaCare™ to launch criticisms - it was written up largely by lawyers from the Heritage Foundation, not exactly famous for liberal views (!). Heritage was also instrumental in creating RomneyCare in MA. The latter, btw, has worked fairly well, as noted by some, on account of it being a state, as opposed to federal, mandate. I wonder why Obama decided to go for a rightwing organization to put his "health care" program...
 How about the US arming both sides, as has been done many times in the past? This would allow our al Qaeda allies and Assad's military to kill each other off at a faster rate, and the corporate welfare queens in the defense (sic) sector could turn even larger profits on the taxpayer. 
 There are internationally recognized protocols, procedures and laws to deal with nations that violate the Chemical Weapons Convention. The full scale invasion of an offending nation is not included in those protocols. I get the impression that Obama is somewhat of an ego-maniac - and to rescue his flailing excuse of an administration, he is resorting to war, the catch-all solution that has a direct appeal to patriotism, to distract the public from the failures of his...
 Kerry has done nothing of the kind, and the most likely reality is a different scenario to what is being blared out by the administration and its media lackeys. Most accounts recall chemical weapons being used by, and captured from, the al Qaeda linked rebel militias (Islamists), and not Assad's military. Putin's analysis seems to make the most sense -  he claims that Assad has everything to lose from using chemical weapons while having the upper hand militarily - an...
