Resolved: President Obama's plan for increasing troops in Afghanistan is in the US best interest."

The Success of President Obama's Afghanistan Strategy depends on our ability to increase the standard of living." this was said by Michael Honda, a U.S congress man of California. he later went on to say that "The security of the American people, a priority made clear by Barrack Obama, is paramount. But it will only be made possible through a commitment to fix the conditions of insecurity in these regions." and I agree with congressman Honda because in order to over conquer the issue of terroris...

President Obama's plan for increasing troops in Afghanistan is in the United States' best interest.

My partner and I negate the resolution resolved: President Obama's plan for increasing troops in Afghanistan is in the United States' best interest. We define "best interest" as an activity consistent with guidelines established in the preamble to the U.S. Constitution. We specifically make reference to providing for the common defense, domestic tranquility and promoting the general Welfare for purposes of this resolution. Contention 1: The Afghan army is incompetent and the training them will...

Obama is not a loser.

Obama is not a loser. He actually won his presidential camapagin. This is a broadened title, stateing that his entire life has resulted in him being a loser. But what is a "loser" exactly? Quite obviously, someone who does not win. In this singular instance of winning he presidential race, which is a great achievement, Obama overall, is not a loser. If he was a complete loser, he would not have won. Therefore he is not a complete loser. However, he can not be a partial loser either. It doesn'...

Obama is pushing for longer school hours for children each year.

President Obama is trying to push for longer school days and shorter summer vacations, he believes that American students are at a disadvantage compared to other kids around the world due to less time spent in the classroom. I, however, think this to be a terrible idea. (1) We all know that the U.S. is in a lot of debt right now, how can we afford to pay an extra $1,300 per student each year. This figure was pulled from a Massachusetts program that tried out this new schooling, it added up to...

FNC (Fox News) showed Obama's address to Congress about his supposed health care plan

mongoose

I have heard many uninformed liberals claim that FNC [1] did not show Obama's address to Congress that was supposed to be regarding his health care plan. This is a blatant lie. I would like anybody who believes that FNC didn't cover it to accept this debate and show that they didn't. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUiPV2YHVco [1] http://www.foxnews.com/...

Obama should appoint Cheney to negotiate with North Korea over hostages

RoyLatham
JBlake

The North Koreans have seized two American citizens for the apparent purposes of aggrandizing Dear Leader, Kim Il Jong, and for extracting a ransom in the form of concessions for their release. http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D98ML4IO0&show_article=1 Past negotiations have followed the pattern of Dear Leader getting the attention he sought, receiving payment through various concessions, and then reneging on his part of the deal. One option being discussed among pundits is to send for...

the Obama administration shouldn't try to defend their policies to Republicans or anyone else

sadolite
sherlockmethod

When anyone who opposes some policy of the Obama administration, The administration should just say no comment rather than try to explain it. Whenever they do this they just raise more questions than they answer. The Obama administration does not need to convince anyone of anything. They control the White house and both branches of government. They should just ramrod everything through and just let whoever complains, cry all they want. Once Gov't passes something it is there forever. They could...

Obama's idea for "Universal Health Care" will only tear down America.

TFranklin62
pcmbrown

Obama's idea for universal health care will not help America. It will hurt the economy, the middle class, and anyone who pays taxes. Rich people know this. They make lots of money and don't want to loose another penny to another one of Obma's idiotic plans, such as heavily taxing anyone who makes over $150,000 a year (that number has been lowered three times since August). Resolution: If this plan of the President's is put into action, America will only fall into a deeper recession....

Obama has trouble speaking without a teleprompter

TFranklin62
studentathletechristian8

I stand in affirmation. If you will view this video, you can plainly see that when Obama's teleprompter doesn't work, he can't speak very well at all. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDJSVPAx8xc he stutters and can't think! He makes the excuse of not getting enough sleep, but eh messes up constantly on different occasions! He thanks HIMSELF at the white house St. Patrick's Day party For the party! more videos to follow. I implore you debater, prove me wrong, there is no doubt that Obama continual...
