Thank you, President Obama..

"..we have not added a single person to the GTMO population since President Obama took office, and we have had substantial success delivering swift justice to terrorists through our federal court system.

Indeed, since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. The effective use of the criminal justice system has resulted in the debriefing, conviction and incarceration of U.S. citizens and non-citizens for acts of terrorism committed inside the United States and around the world. The system has repeatedly proven that it can successfully allow us to gather intelligence, handle the threat that we continue to face, and prosecute terrorists."

I imagine some get influenced by the prevailing "media narrative" and by other

online bait and click narratives.

"But this is all wrong. You should judge leaders by their achievements, not their press, and in terms of policy substance Mr. Obama is having a seriously good year. In fact, there’s a very good chance that 2014 will go down in the record books as one of those years when America took a major turn in the right direction."

thanks Newsjock and Paul Krugman

Oh, a little whisperer.. I missed that one and the other two.. thank you, she~

Happy Father’s Day, 44!


To the First Dad on Father's Day.. such a great daddy..

thanks Play for all the pics.

And, personally responsible for

McCain's own POW status for 5 years? That had to have been Obama's fault in McCain's bitter mind.

Every word is True and glad somebody wrote it down.

Mahalo, bears!

Put this in my journal and help pass it around.. so needed right now!

F**Cking Blame's on you, McCain.. couple of snips from your link..

"McCain is right; it could have been avoided. If, in the aftermath of 9/11, President George W. Bush had treated the arguments of Feith, McCain, and other advocates of the Iraq War with the disdain they deserved, we (and the Iraqis) wouldn’t be where we are today."

"The Iraq invasion and occupation was ill-conceived, ill-executed, and ill-fated. It had terrible consequences not just for Iraq but for many other countries. It illustrated the limits of American military power—the opposite of what it was intended to do—and it helped accomplish what Osama bin Laden could never have achieved on his own: drawing the United States and its allies into an open-ended global battle with militant Islam. When you hear Feith and other architects of the Iraq invasion criticizing Obama for cutting and running, it is well to remember that."

Oh, we do.. Remember the Big ol Cans of WhoopAss we had posted on DU back in the day? To signify what would Happen if bush Bombed Iraq like a fucking idiot? I do.

thanks sw

See all I've missed? No wonder

I'm so damned optimistic.

"..Like a Giant Pooper Scooper" should definitely go into the National

Lexicon, hopemountain.

This is David Brat..

Tea Partier David Brat LIES: He Didn’t Go to Princeton University


"Apparently honesty is not among Dave Brat’s “Christian” values. Alright, technically he didn’t “lie” — he simply allowed everyone to believe something that was not true, that untruth being that he attended Princeton University.

When the Washington Post contacted the University seeking information on his time there, University spokesman Martin Mbugua said, “We have no record under that name.”

As it turns out, he did obtain his masters in divinity at Princeton, which is a well respected theological institution but not the prestigious Ivy League school that Princeton University is recognized as.

Mbugua says that occasionally people “make an association between the institutions here in Princeton — an incorrect association.” Although the two institutions are located in the same town there is no connection between the two."

Americans Against the Teaparty

Brat wanted them to believe he went to Princeton University to make a cheap political point.. and in the process he sounds ashamed of the Princeton Divinity School that he did go to. Brat
