Bush III (cont.)

President Obama--he of the "I will close Guantanamo in one year" promise (whoops), is now going to resume military tribunals there.  It seems George Bush and his staff may not have been so dumb after all, huh Mr. President?

The arrogance of the Obama team and their apologists is startling.  The new narrative on the Arab Spring--that it started with the President's speech in Cairo in 2009--is loony.  Their sense that they would renew America's standing by walking away from GWB's policies in the war on terror has been replaced by sheepish retractions and continuations of virtually all important Bush policies.

This is amateur hour, ladies and gentlemen.  We're watching them learn their jobs in front of our eyes.  I would say that we deserve better, but that's not true.  We got what we deserved.

I wish I ran that place. Ever seen the movie "Papillon"?

Look at the bright side - maybe this will motivate an anti-war primary challenger to jump in the race.

I'd like to see a Kucinich/Mosely-Braun ticket run on the Out of Iraq/Out of Afghanistan/Out of Guantanamo/Out of Money/Out of Our Minds platform. As opposed to once being the fringe, as far left as the Progressives have taken the Democrats, that would split them right down the middle.

Well, Mudge, if Rep. Kucinich's district gets erased when the lines are redrawn, then you may just get your wish. I mean, it's not like he'll have anything else to run for.

Hello!!! Going into Iraq for WMD wasn't exactly professional.
