I'm starting to think I should go for the 100 years of war in the Mid-East option and hope that he's blowing smoke up our asses as well.

The story has been denied by both the Canadian government and Obama.

With the stock market dropping 200 points a day I doubt the Democrats will have a lot of problems obliberating the GOP.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Yes, but the Clinton camp denies 'and' denounces the story.

If the stock market "looks ahead", the losses can be termed the Clinton Contraction. If that turns out to be true, what does that give the Gimmiecrats to run on?

Anyway, when this story first hit the wires, it was about the Obama campaign. Now it's Clinton. What happened?

Sorry. Here's the link:
globeandmail.com: PM's top aide set off storm with Obama NAFTA leak

The story is the opposite of the original, claming the Clinton camp made the assurance that, roughly, she was just rubbing the rubes of Ohio with soothing linaments to sway their votes, and had no need for a modified NAFTA.

NAFTA's not the issue. The issue is, 'the voters getting fucked like the 'two dollar' whores they are'... yet again.
