How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts
'International Crisis Test'
What the liberal whiners say:
'With Joe Biden's prediction that after being elected, Barack Obama is going to be tested in a serious way with an international crisis, it's sure good to know we'll have this brilliant man in control, rather than the out-of-control cowboys who've been there the last 8 years!'
'Real funny. Look, this man is a "transformational leader"...just the kind of leader we'll need for a crisis of this magnitude.'
'Stop using General Powell's words against Barack!' It's because of this God-awful place that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld have left us in that we'll have this crisis.'
Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments
1. If Joe Biden is so sure that these "international" factions are planning to test Barack Obama within his first 6 months, let's just elect John McCain, and avoid the whole thing!
2. I'm confused. I thought he was so "transformational", that he was going to "transform" our image around the world, and make us friends with everyone who hates us now? Wasn't "talking" and "negotiating" going to be the key to peace with all our enemies? Isn't Barack the candidate the whole world loves? Who could possibly attack us and why...with Barack Obama as president?
3. You mean this place where Al Qaeda has been almost destroyed in Iraq, violence is down 90%, U.S. troop casualties are at their lowest level since the war began, and we haven't had a terror strike on our homeland since 2001? Is that the God-awful place of which you speak?
