    "Surrender to terror"

    Someone needs to educate the Republicans that they are, by themselves, vastly insufficient to be a superpower.

    Their fetish for power can only be continued if we are part of the deal.

    And we have our own ideas of how and why power should be used...and waterboarding is not one of the "hows" and just because we can is not a good enough "why"...

    Freedom is more than throwing an occasional treat to the people. Even tyrants do that much.

      planned run in 2012- for love of God, heterosexual marriage and country, I step aside.....but I ain't goin' anywhere.

      Excellent comment on the chickenhawk position of our future 100 year occupation in the Middle East if McCain Mutiny is elected.

        There is a strong, very strong, bipartisan consensus in Congress to be as prevalent a voice as possible in what happens near "our" oil.

        It's why no serious effort to wind down the Iraq War has occurred.

        Such a move, were it to gain legs, would precipitate a bona fide regime crisis.

        Of that I have zero doubt.

        So long as fossil energy prevails, there will be no real change in Mideast policy attempted.

        And so long as fossil energy can, no serious challenge to its eminence as the energy source of choice will be abided.

        This decision was made long ago. We will not be allowed to decide a change into being without having to fight, or credibly threaten to fight, it into being.

        •  Amen, but there are many who need to hear that (0+ / 0-)

          dose of reality spoken out loud by our Democratic nominee for President.  

          Otherwise they may suffer under the false assumption that the day after the election all troops are headed home.  Not supporting the war from day one, does not necessarly equate to  immediate troop withdrawl now that the U.S. is chest deep in this nightmare.

      •  Why do I get the notion that Romney's wife owns.. (0+ / 0-)

        a big, thick dildo that she rams up his arse every night ???

        He's crazy as goddarn Michael Jackson.

        All this sh*thead talk about dominance and symbolically screwing his/the_GOP's enemies ???

        Romney's gotta be an anal passive.

        Just as effed up as Limbaugh.

        You're on to something.

        The CPAC/Limbaugh/Romney fantasy world is just that.

        for one, he's taken a lot of fun out of my life by quitting. Two --- how f@**#ng dare he quit the day I don't take my laptop to work. The frustration of not being able to comment untill I got home ( for an hour) is overwhelming. Especially when I spent all day planning a recruit course. A course that will have no one named Romney participating. Damn---but there's still time for mitten's kitten's. We will save a spot!
