    I also think President Obama has handled it correctly.  If he sent troops in on the ground, he
    would really hear it, as it is, he will for the money we have had to spend.

    But my big question is, can anyone tell me why John McCain is there sticking in his 2 cents?
    Besides fueling the flames and trying to make President Obama look weak, what is his point?
    If these old men want to go in, let them be the ones leading the way.  We don't need more
    of our military sent to fight someone elses battle.

    Where is Keith?  Miss him and the station needs to get him on again.

    I have to add my 2 cents.  I lived in Arizona in the 70's and up to 1990, and it was beautiful then.
    We got used to those wonderful winters with no snow.  But by the early 90's we knew it was
    time to move on, too many people coming over from California, driving up housing costs,
    too many people planting grass like they had back East, which meant it had to be watered
    which raised the wonderful low humidity we had enjoyed.  The orange groves were being
    cut down for more housing, same with the cotton fields.
    And say what you will about the Mexicans coming in.  They took jobs alright, but the hot,
    dirty jobs no whites wanted.  Try working in that heat in landscaping or the orange groves.
    Then on payday they sent the officials to these orange groves to scare the ones that
    were not here legally, therefore, they didn't have to pay them.  Those people worked
    their butts off in order to send most of their little pay back to Mexico to help their
    families.  They took care of their own.  Up on roofs, putting down tar, in that heat.
    And furthermore, Arizona is the  only "Death Panel" place I know.  Cutting their Medicaid
    and transplants for those who need it.  Its racial allright, I am not sorry
    I lived there, but am happy I left too.  It sure isn't the same there any more.

    President Obama is dammed if he does and dammed if he doesn't.  That doesn't mean he is
    not a strong leader.  He weighs all the pros and cons.  I don't think he is a "war president"
    like others in the past.  The U.S. can't go into all these countries and be the bully.  My
    opinion is that we should pull out of all these wars, these countries have and will fight
    forever, that is the only way they know to resolve their problems.  Unless we are being
    directly threatened and there is fighting on our soil, guard our country, but not at the
    expense of our military's lives and limbs on foreign soil.  Have you considered how much money
    our war mongers make on a war?  It isn't just for the oil or to protect the innocent.
    We need our military here, to protect our borders.  And one more thing, when the
    drugs come into our country from Mexico, instead of stopping the shipment, trace
    them to whoever is picking them up here and arrest them.  Just my opinion.

    Don't you love claiming Donald Trump as an American?  He is beyond funny.  What I want
    to know, is not his birth certificate, but what tax bracket is he in?  Could that be the reason
    why he has so much money, money?  
    With all that money, why doesn't he do something worthwhile, like helping send supplies
    to the tornado areas, plus a dozen other areas, he should try to get positive publicity,
    not appear as a clown.
