Go ask the Fannie shareholders how awesome Obama is.

You kind of ran away from the Iran attack argument. It was just a retaliatory kill. Hardly an "attack" as you claim.  The proof is in the pudding, he had plenty of opportunities to launch wider military action and has deferred.

Probably true!  But he's still nonetheless a walking, talking hypocrite.  Cheers!

However I was calling out Trump for his [continued, now multi-decade long] hypocrisy.

How can someone tell Trump has won on this Iran issue, and that the anti-Trumpers can't manage any strong argument against Trump's bold Middle East move?

Answer:  when all they can say is HYPOCRITE/HYPOCRISY. 

Weak.

As I said a couple years ago:

it's an extremely weak point.  Calling a politician a hypocrite is one of the weakest debating points available.  It is so obvious that it convinces nobody about nothing.

It may be the anti-Trumpers' backhanded way of agreeing with Trump without having to admit it.

Soleimani was al-qaeda??? :o :o

Also, I don't see anyone here supporting Iran or terrorism. Do you?

Yeah, he was a Shiite Terrorist (as opposed to Sunni) - same thing as far as I am concerned. No regard for human life.

I see all kinds of media types and leftists sticking up for this piece of garbage - makes me wonder whose team they are on.
(Not you LC or anyone else here - seriously).

But I stand by my statement - many of these people hate Trump/supporters more than they hate terrorists.

The point is heís happy to criticize Obama for taking a strong stance vs. Iran in an election year, then does the exact same thing himself. This is hypocrisy.

And as a follow up, whether you think hypocrisy means anything or not is a personal decision. Vote how you wish.
Personally I value honesty in my representatives.

Let me know when you run for office.

Locally you donít care who I vote for.

Federally, I vote for the least corrupt.  This was Hillary and Obama (2x) previously. At least that way I know how Iím (probably) getting screwed. So in this upcoming election that would be: almost anyone running against Trump.

Anybody being even half assed honest with themselves knows its not possible to declare Trump/Hilary the more/less corrupt candidate. They are both potentially the most corrupt people to ever run, but in either event making the claim that one is better than the other in that regard, is dishonest. Personally, I prefer the one who didn't make tens of millions as a career politician on a $175k annual salary. At least Trump, even if he broke the law, did so as a citizen with a real risk of going to jail. Clinton, since basically the mid 80's has been able to literally get away with murder because of her swamp connections. But that is besides the point.

My main surprise was simply your statement that you value honesty in "your representatives". So I was curious as to whom you found that fit that profile because pretty much any politician above a very, very local level is a dishonest scumbag. The degrees just vary.

Well here in Colorado I voted for Polis knowing full well he wants to raid the piggy bank. But his opponent wanted to run the State as if it were still the wild west cow town of his granpappyís, and had (has) his weaselly little hands in every corner of the state.

But hey if Hillary were President and doing the same shit as Trump we should be calling her out on it as well.
