Shrub 2 Jeb is his own man on foreign policy, but gets advice from, among others, Wolfowitiz



CHICAGO — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who is considering a 2016 presidential campaign, is seeking to distinguish his views on foreign policy from those of his father and brother, two former presidents.

But he's getting most of his ideas from nearly two dozen people, most of whom previously worked for George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.

Cry Oh Crap, and let slip the dim bulbs of endless war.

Attention 43% Takers: S.N.A.P. needs changing


House Republicans are laying the groundwork for a revision of the food-stamps program after its sharp expansion during the recession.

The effort kicks off Feb. 25 when the House Agriculture Committee holds the first of several hearings scheduled this year on food stamps, formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R., Texas), who is leading the charge, said he wants to stay away from the type of party politics that can doom reforms before they are proposed. But as the son of a roughneck on oil rigs, he said he favors the kind of hard work that “built America,” suggesting any changes will lead to a smaller program and fewer recipients.

Maybe they should call it the "bootstrap" program because that's what families will be boiling to eat when the wing nuts are done.

Thanks to the DU member who sent the heart

I live in the middle of a Wing Nut crazy State (AZ) and any kindness sent my way is much appreciated.

According to a Wing Nut--a major problem is...wait for it...Yoga Pants


Montana Taliban: Republican lawmaker wants to arrest and jail women for wearing yoga pants

Oh Noesssss--Benghazi, Ebola, now----Yoga pants.

Not even the Onion would make this up.

Never Forget: Shrub lied us into a war


But the Bush administration absolutely did engage in willful deception. Quite a bit of it, in fact. It’s one thing to simply repeat an intelligence assessment that is wrong, and quite another to take a disputed, credibly challenged intelligence assessment and state it as uncontested fact. That’s a lie, and senior Bush officials did it often. There’s no better example of this than the aluminum tubes.

Really, Brian Williams and his lie about Iraq. Shrub continues to get a pass for being the National Prevaricator. Smarmy puppet for Darth Cheney spouting lie after lie. Just thinking about causes my BP to go up like a Mentos in a Pepsi bottle.

From Nixon's plain cloth coat to Ernst's bread bags on shoes.

Wing nut messaging never changes.

Rmoney to change image by highlighting his charitable giving to all you takers



To break from his image, advisers say Romney will highlight his charitable giving with donors and voters as part of an effort to show “he’s generous to those that haven’t been as economically successful as him,” one adviser said.

We 47 percent of the moocher class have just failed to understand the noblesse oblige of Rmoney and his benevolent clan.

Ted Cruz to oversee NASA


Senator Ted Cruz will chair the committee that oversees science and Nasa in the new Republican-controlled Congress, raising fears that the conservative Texan will cut funding to the space agency and science programs.

In his first action Senator Cruz will expose the "Apollo moon landing" as having taken place in Walter Cronkite's garage.

Rethugs Would Get The Blame For Another Government Shut Down



As Republican congressional leadership struggles with a rabid caucus, as usual, bent on forcing a government shutdown, as usual, polling shows that the public would blame Republicans if government grinds to a halt, as usual.

I disagree. I think Teahaddists learned they can can shut down the government and then win control of Congress. I am not saying it's logical, but it's probably what they learned.

Man arrested for pointing a banana at the police

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. -- A man is facing a felony menacing charge, because two Colorado sheriff's deputies say they thought a banana he pointed at them was a gun.

Like the British, maybe we should call the police the Peelers.
