He is on the powerless side now, some Americans that were asleep are now awakened to see his divisive racist partisan leadership has run its course. It is all downhill for the lame duck prez now!

What you do not understand is Obama set this entire scenario up.

Talk about paranoia. This is the most powerful President ever!

What you do not understand is Obama set this entire scenario up. Is that the work of a Nobel Prize Winner? I doubt that. Obama put the USA in this position using what liberals say is his strongest trait... his mouth. He has made several serious mistakes in all aspects of the presidency that are very difficult to overcome and the sooner we get him out the better off we will be. I am afraid the best thing we can do is stand in his way and limit his chances to make further stupid mistakes... maybe he needs a bunch more African vacations as they are far less damaging than his job performance.

Two top Republicans warned Monday of catastrophic consequences if Congress votes against striking Syria and suggested the White House may be mulling a more robust military intervention.

Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, Republican hawks who have long advocated deeper US involvement in Syria's civil war, met President Barack Obama as part of his efforts to sell US lawmakers on military action.

McCain emerged from the meeting with a stern warning for fellow Republicans who may be considering voting against military action purely to damage the Democratic president.

"A vote against that resolution by Congress I think would be catastrophic," said McCain.

"It would undermine the credibility of the United States of America and the president of the United States. None of us want that."

Graham, who is facing a tough primary fight from his right for the Republican Senate nomination in South Carolina, warned of the wider consequences of a failure to back military

But Obama uses a verb in every sentence while Bush bragged about being a C student

So President Obama said that he supports hitting Syria to punish it for crossing his red line, while standing at an historical desk with his foot on top disrespecting the history and pride in all former presidents. He stated that he has gone to congress to ask permission to attack Assad's regime but left the door open to act if congress denies him his request. BUT when President Bush did it, with approval from congress he should have been impeached as he surpassed his authority? I often wonder how anyone believes anything he says... even after epic failures, lies and constant mistakes!

Bush is no longer President. He won retirement. He won an everlasting place in your brain usedto. He won the ability to tweak you libs and turn you into foot-stomping whining fifth graders without even trying. Shall I keep going???

Knickman, in response to your first post there are three 'statements' that should raise red flags. #1: Any President quoting Lincoln; #2: "It's for the children" and the always popular #3: "it's for your safety". Each of those mean Govt. intrusion and the crap is about to hit the fan.

I guess there is no need to carry this any farther. Its not going to happen. One of these days, Montgomery county is going to want a favor from Fulton county and I am sure Fulton county officials will remember this incident.

Knickman: NYS had nothing to do with Okwari Park. It was the brain child of Glenn Mathison, Mont. Co. Planner. It was as much of a pie in the sky then as the connector highway is now. Home rule in the south central Montgomery County nixed that scheme, just as Montgomery County supervisors are doing now.

Knickman, we've already seen productive farmland taken in MC and used for an Ind. Development site. Its called Glen Canal View Ind. Park, in sight of Exit 26 and it is EMPTY. "Use it up, wear it out, make it do or DO WITHOUT".

JEERS to another way to place the blame! The president, in a surprise decision Saturday, announced he would seek a vote in Congress on launching a military attack against the Assad regime. One senior State Department official, though, told FOX NEWS that the president’s goal to take military action will indeed be carried out, regardless of whether Congress votes to approve the use of force.

I think that we are all forgetting that this was to be a study to see if such a connector highway be practical and useful. Not the actual building of the connector. It would be interesting to see if NYSDOT could or would get involved directly and bypass the counties for a study.

Give your pep talk to Mayor Sarah and the keepers of the FC solid waste facility. I would certainly rather see MC Industrial sites, right off the thruway, filled to capacity without clogging the roadways. It is a far better scenario than confiscating valuable land in the Town of Mohawk, taking it off the tax rolls, and using it for a connector highway.

"Knickman" if Fulton County's economic development efforts can justify the spending of $250 million (plus or minus) for the construction of new transportation infrastructure (a connector roadway to the NYS Thruway), then let the private sector developers foot the bill. This is not something that should be funded by the public through higher taxes.

Economic development is a business that NY state does not fair very well in, resulting in woefully high property taxes and low property values. The continued failure of Fulton County’s failed “economic development” efforts (and this is a oxymoron) have resulted in very limited public benefits, with major benefits for the inner circle players. The millions that Bray and Sciocchetti, Dorfman-Robbie, John Olsen, the Bonadio Group, and many others have unjustifiably pilfered from Fulton County with nothing positive for Fulton County is example enough.

Well Hilltopper, Montgomery co. could have had a lake years ago as part of that Okwari park that the state wanted to build years ago but the people did not want it. Both counties have industrial parks, but wouldn't you rather not see valuable and very productive farm land in Montgomery county taken for an industrial park. Lets be regional, reasonable and not confrontational.

Montgomery County has three interchanges, that's why all the Industrial Parks should have been sited there. If you think common sense equates to selfishness, you can jump in any one of Fulton County's 44 lakes. Montgomery County doesn't have any. Should we ask Fulton County to help us build a dam.

When the industrial park was opened on 30A just below Johnstown, it was in Fulton county but in the Fonda-Fultonville School district which got a boost in their tax base, so there was some benefit to a portion of Montgomery county.

It should also be remembered that many of these businesses in Fulton county employ people from Montgomery county and vise- versa. The region would benefit overall. We don't need another turf war like went on about the recently opened Wal-Mart store in Gloversville.
