  •  I support investigating Bush, Cheney, et alia (1+ / 0-)

    But since Obama never supported impeachment and only vaguely sort of maybe seems to think Bush, Cheney, et alia, have committed any crimes and need to be investigated (he's only almost lukewarm to the idea of even investigating, not the least bit enthusiastic), I don't see that happening.

    I'm sorry the Bush-Cheney mudslinging machine has reached you and the current people who have done the right thing.  It's another bauble for Lamestream Media to talk about and gives the allusion that the whistleblowers were the culprits, not the lying war criminals who should be investigated - they seem to be innocent victims by the time the press gets done with their oh-poor-pitiful stories.  We all know that's a bunch of codswallop.

    Today everyone's off on a tangent about Obama's remark having to do with "fixing Social Security."  (There is no crisis in Social Security and everyone knows it.)  Oh, look.  A shiny bauble to talk about...!  Medicare needs fixing, starting with kicking insurance, medical, and pharmaceutical corporations who write confusing laws from which they profit nicely out of our government, but no one can see that simple solution, and our chickenshit Congress Critters are not willing to change the status quo.  They're happy getting money from the same corporations.

    But it's a diversion for people to talk about rather than accountability for Bush, Cheney, et alia, or investigating their wrongdoing.  The overly-long, boring-as-hell, presidential campaign was the diversion to talk about for two bloody damned years instead of the lies and crimes of Bush, Cheney, et al., but now Obama and his administration have to contend with finding other diversions instead of investigating the real criminals who have held office for eight years.

    Many of those now in the DoJ are now moles who used to work for Idiot Bush and now have civil service positions.  They can stall and keep investigations tied up in diversionary routes for years to come... so no one will get around to investigating Bush, Cheney, et alia, until they're very, very old or dead, and then the only thing people will talk about is how old and pitiful they are, not about the lies and war crimes they perpetrated after SCOTUS gave them their jobs in 2000.  With a compliant new president who isn't anxious to investigate the past but recommends "moving forward in the spirit of political bipartisanship" and singing Kumbaya and then we have to get to work on the economy and fixing other stuff that has been messed up for the last eight years, we know where this is all going, don't we?

    Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer, but right now I see absolutely no reason to be hopeful about seeing any accountability for the lying war criminals in the future.

    I'd love to be pleasantly surprised in the future....  (If there's a god, she'll somehow make sure these lying war criminals are tried at The Hague.)
