actually it was a hyperbolic misinterpretation of an opposing talking point for the purposes of discrediting said argument

otherwise known as a strawman argument.

Trump is starting to slip in the polls with Carson and Fiorina coming up close behind, and the media is rejoicing.

there's no way that fiorina broad takes the republican nomination

she looks like a straight up reptilian. only a matter of time before her human mask falls off

Anyone else notice that not one of the presidental candidates want the US to give up its role as world police? Not even Bernie Sanders suggests cutting back on the national defense budget, or ending the support to Israel.

yea well that's a stupid thing to campaign on anyway. ron paul tried it and nobody gives a **** about him anymore. both him and his goofy barber-shop quartet looking son can go jump in a lake, as far as i'm concerned!

Lol what does this even mean? Yes "the media" is one monolithic entity with one view, and that view is it dislikes one crazy right-wing Republican candidate who's never held political office, but likes two other crazy right-wing Republican candidates who have never held political office and have broadly the same views as the first guy on almost every issue. Oh, and none of the three are going to win the nomination and every serious journalist knows it.

If you look at all the stuff Sanders has written and said, before and during his Presidential campaign, it should be really really clear that there are very few people in Congress who are as strongly in favor of cutting the military budget as he is. He's not great on Israel, but he probably is better than any other candidate in the race (that said, supporting apartheid is supporting apartheid, even if you're only sort of supporting apartheid).

I'm not really a supporter of his, but it's just wrong to say he doesn't want to cut the military/defense budget.

it doesn't matter... sanders won't get the nomination anyway. it's clearly going to hillary... who is a war hawk... one of her only redeeming qualities. people who think we're better off abandoning our imperial interests are dumb as **** tbh.
