Up front? I detest Ron Paul. I oppose any effort to get him into the executive branch, and I see his tenure as a congressman to have been nothing but
a well-paid dead weight. His policies are literally #, his rhetoric is dim, and his few good points are vastly overwhelmed by hte massive negatives he
brings as baggage. In short, as i've said before and am saying again, I would shed no tears if, tomorrow morning, Ron Paul were eaten by bears.
All that aside? He's right
on this. All this "rah-rah we kill him hooray us" is, frankly, disgusting. You killed a person, is that something
to be proud of? I don't care that he was a bad person. You are not given your position to be the world's judge, jury, and executioner.
if you'd captured these guys, cleaned them up, tended their wounds,and put them on a stand to face their accusers? That's
something to brag
about - even if it ends up a circuis like Saddam's "trial," it's still far more than these men ever offered their own enemies.
I want my president to be the "bigger man." I don't care if he can beat up your dad. I want a president who can look your dad square in the eye,
tell him what's what, and settle the situation like an adult.
That said, I also want a president whose agenda isn't to sell off as much of this country to his investor buddies as possible, at a steep discount,
too. So paul's still out - I can hope that Obama get out of this manchild phase. Maybe he'll realize that his opposition's taunts about not being
"tough enough" are just the cat-cries of the insecure and incompetent, ninnies that he doesn't need to respond to at all.
