    Considering the repubtards in Congress can’t be trusted to keep their mouths shut on anything, NOT telling them anything IS the best thing for national security.

    Oooh, I know, I know! It’s John McCain! He’d never pass up a chance to deploy troops.

    Oh, wait no! It’s Rand Paul. He’ll have us go back to a pre-Monroe doctrine foreign policy.

    Err, Christie… Jeb Bush… any other moderate Republican? Their national security policy looks a lot like Obama’s. Why, I’m starting to think Obama is in fact, a moderate Republican.

    It doesn’t matter who is on which ticket. The politics in the United States has devolved into what is best described as two-doors-one-room. So long as corporations (and other deep pockets) pump money into both parties, no matter who wins, We The People lose.

    Succinctly and intelligently stated, Becca.
    Thank you.

    The reason conservatives oppose abortion is that their idea of “national security” requires lots of kids we can send overseas to be killed THERE.

    I believe it was Lincoln that said:

    “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

    I think it is safe to say that you have successfully removed ANY doubt.

    “Perhaps it is time for a game change a bring back the draft. Anybody not working in a real job gets to carry a pointy stick or a rock into terrorist strongholds.”
    I have a better idea. Anybody who says “we should send troops there” gets to go in first.

    " I know that he is definitely not a Socialist because I’m a Socialist."
    That statement looked amazingly like honesty from a liberal. Which is of course a complete oxymoron.

    Here is the relevant quote from the CNN piece:
    WASHINGTON (CNN) — White House press secretary Ari Fleischer accused Sen. Hillary Clinton Friday of working to divide Americans along party lines.

    The former first lady responded by saying she is simply “seeking answers and information” about recent revelations that President Bush was alerted prior to September 11 of possible terrorist attacks.

    The row between the White House and the Democrat from New York began Thursday when Clinton appeared on the Senate floor and held up a copy of the New York Post with the headline of “Bush Knew.”

    “The president knew what?” she asked. “My constituents would like to know the answer to that and many other questions, not to blame the president or any other American, just to know.”"
    +Those words come from the speech on May the 16 — I posted the link in our earlier discussion. Now according to this CNN report, it was in the same speech that Clinton held up the copy of the New York Post with the headline. Now I’ve looked at the video, and I assume that you have looked at the video. I didn’t see her hold up a copy of the New York Post. Did you? I guess CNN got it wrong.
    So you’ve got inaccurate reports, and I’ve got a video of the speech itself.
    But all that is really a detail. Here’s my question. Is there anything in the speech in the video which would make you leave the Democratic party? I can think of lots of reasons not to be a Democrat, and indeed I left the Democratic party long before you did, but that speech would not have been one of my reasons.

    There is something really stupid about this cartoon.

    If you can find me a picture of Mrs. Clinton waving the New York Post in that speech, i will happily yield the point. The CNN report is clearly wrong. They quote from the speech and say that she waved the paper, but the video clearly shows that she didn’t. I don’t see how it could be more clear. She didn’t wave the paper in that speech. That’s what CNN claims, and they were clearly wrong.
    I decided that Johnson was lying back in 1966, and that’s when I left the Democratic Party. But I saw no reason to trust the Republicans any more than the Democrats.

    A little further clarification might be in order. The only reason I care about whether or not Mrs. Clinton was waving the paper around is that you said that you left the Democratic Party when you saw her waving the paper around and shrieking. I think I’ve established that she didn’t wave the paper. As for shrieking, I suppose that’s a matter of opinion; I didn’t think she came even close, but perhaps you have a different sense of what a shriek sounds like. So what you said bothered you in my judgment didn’t happen. Now if you had said that you thought that Mrs. Clinton was behaving in an unnecessarily partisan manner in asking for an investigation into what Bush knew, I could see that as a reasonable point. I suppose you feel the same way about the investigations into what Obama knew and did about Benghazi.
