FAUX NEWS BLAMES JIMMY CARTER FOR NK NUKE TEST
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,219058,00.html

The Iranians are still in the development stage for a bomb. We're trying to keep them from becoming NoKos.

By the way, Jimmy Carter led negotiations with the NoKos that were supposed to keep them from getting the bomb. That didn't work, did it?

With the Iranians it will probably be better to send someone to negotiate who has a credible history of using force to back up talks. That would not be Jimmy Carter or anyone like him.

11. Yeah, how dare they not do anything about countries that didn't exist!
I don't give a shit that Korea was ruled by the Chinese and then the Japanese during their respective Presidencies..."Honest Abe" and "Teddy" appeased the North Koreans!

8. It's Woodrow Wilson's fault. No, it's Franklin Pierce's fault.
Yeah, Pierce. Well, maybe, James Polk's fault. And Clinton. Can't forget Clinton.

9. And what Bush has done has worked so well!
"Why should I be concerned about North Korea" if our "commander in chief" isn't?

10. The "thing" about Freepers and Dittoheads
is that they rely on a history built on right-wing propaganda.

Part of that "history" that they've heard over and over again (gotta catapult the propaganda) is that the "middle east problem" began with Jimmy Carter. Further "history" says that Clinton sold N. Korea reactors to build their nukes.

That's why these fuckers are so dangerous and damaging. Not only do they falsify current events; they rewrite history. Very Orwellian indeed.

14. The republican rhetorical recipe is clear enough....
(a) A goal, X, is identified, and is difficult to achieve.

(b) Democrat Y attempts to acheive X.

(c) Republicans take power after Y, do absolutely nothing re: X for 5-10 years.

(d) Goal X fails.

(e) Republicans now have the option:
(1) Blame Y, being the last person who tried
(2) Blame Democrats, can't trust their failed policies
(3) Use as example of how government can't possibly work

Example: Horticulture

Democrat plants a seed, waters it, provides light, nutrients, for 4 weeks. A shoot breaks the ground. Democrat has to go, republican takes her place. Republcan does nothing for the following 8 weeks. Plant dies. Republcan declares horticulture to be hogwash.


It says a lot about the American public that they vote for this.

15. You mean you DIDN'T know?!
Well let me set you straight--Mark Foley is a Democrat, Saddam had weapons of mass destruction, and I'm dating Santa Claus.

(Don't tell Mrs. Claus.)
