We are more credible now than we have been since WWII. Who can deny that we'll do what we say we'll do, at this point in time? And what is the definition of credibility? You can be trusted and believed to do what you say you'll do.

Will have to respectfully agree to disagree on this point. This administration tarnished our credibility when, after failing to garner international support for an ill-advised invasion, it it tried to blow smoke up our collective a$$ and try and justify it's actions by parsing words, deceiving and lying.

Trusted and believed? Feared is more accurate. Bullies are trusted and believed after they kick the a$$ of the first little guy on the playground, and start threatening the other little guys.

Perhaps it is time for people who would attack us to fear us.

People who have never attacked us fear us; that's the shame of it all.

A uniter...not a divider...

Sadder words never spoken
