Barack Obama, our next President

Obama still smokes drugs, albeit legal drugs.
Perhaps if we make all drugs legal, Obama can medicate himself better and be a more effective leader.
Worth a try.
Does that include Rat Poison?

Holder screwed up by responding to a question that was posed as a hypothetical without thinking about the overblown reaction from the 'we live for hypothetical situations'/FOXbot crowd.
so until floriduh gets blown up by a drone, no worries.
Are you suggesting that public officials like Holder can ignore Congressional hearings by refusing to respond?

Actually they can, by asserting their Fifth Amendment rights.

Enemies, a GOP love story
by digby
Being fairly sure that the new found love for civil liberties among Republicans seeking the presidency is a tad opportunistic, I highlighted some delicious examples of GOP hypocrisy on presidential wartime powers during the Kosovo campaign. Now Perlstein takes them through the Wayback machine and it's a wild trip. He starts off by recounting this week's events and then asking:
Does all this mean the ancient (and even, sometimes, honorable) tradition of Republican "isolationism" (the word being more than a little bit of an epithet, its advocates prefer "non-interventionism”) is making a comeback? Or, alternately, did it never really go away at the conservative grassroots, save for those distracting moments when the Commander in Chief is a conservative Republican hero like in those heady first few years of W's Iraq War? Or is all this just another opportunity for Obama-bashing, and as such a perfect exemplar of the intellectual contentlessness and bottomless cynicism of that favorite Republican activity?(As I put it in the piece on the convention, "What they really love—shown by the way McCain and Condi were able to win back their audience by taking cheap shots at Obama—are enemies. And within their authoritarian mind-set [as George Orwell taught us with his talk about Eurasia, Eastasia and Oceania], enemies are fungible."
Do read on. It's quite a lesson in partisan opportunism.
This is why I don't truck too much in the hypocrisy argument on either side. Both parties are guilty of it, particularly in national security and foreign policy, which is interesting since the nation has been run on a bipartisan consensus on this pretty much for half a century. You see this playing out on both sides right now in which a few Democrats are tepidly speaking out against tactics in the covert war against terrorism, while some of the GOP's more aggressive, ambitious types are taking up the mantle of the ACLU. Meanwhile, John McCain (as he did during the Kosovo campaign) holds down the pro-military end on the right while the Democratic president and his allies in congress holds it down on the left. You'll see the same dynamic when a Republican is in the White House.
Perlstein's observation is more interesting: with the right, it's about the enemies and enemies are fungible. That's really the best way to understand them, I think.

Galt was tempted to comment on this gem, but fell asleep in the middle of the second sentence.

But we are always interested in what "Pearlstine' thinks.

You were just misunderstood. What you were saying is that modern Detroit is a ghost town, inhabited primarily by rabbits.

On the Maddox and false reports of torpedo launches- if that wasn't war already in process, what was?
On My lai-All due to MORE MISinformation, of wrong coordinates.
Ever read any of the transcripts of those present?
Talk about having to live lifetimes of actual trauma.
The issue before us is not whether a war was in progress, but who was responsibile for it.

When you say "false torpedo attack" that hits the nail on the head. Because that's exactly what happened. The military falsely clamined an unprovoked North Vietnamese attack when it knew better.

As for your explanation for the My Lai massacre which say was MISinformation and wrong information, I think you're once more floating hazy, half-baked explanations of innocence which you know aren't true.

The U.S. Army surrounded My Lai, herded the villagers into the nearby woods, then systematically began separating small numbers out of view who were machinegunnned. And continued the process over and over as the day went on.

No mistakes, no wrong coordinates. It was organized mass murder.

You're not going to find this information anywhere in the liberal media.
Other sources such as Bloomberg reported the same thing.
By the way, releasing two years of returns is more than what the law requires and the standard Senator Kerry adhered to as the Democratic nominee in the 2004 election.
But we didn't hear enough whining about Romney producing only two years of his tax returns by the left. Not a word was said about Kerry's wife's fortune that he married into withholding her tax returns.
Fer krissakes Carol; Romney hid money in Switzerland and the Caymans to avoid paying U.S. income taxes. How, can a man expect to become President of this country and do such a thing? Please.
John Kerrys wife was not running for President.

It was the controversy over killing an American overseas that started the ball rolling.
Personally, I have no problem with an American who claims to be an enemy and a terrorist being targeted overseas.
But that controversy wasn't even put to rest before Holder started tripping all over himself about Americans being targeted here and the nomination of Brennan who supports killing Americans overseas.
It created some serious concerns.
Be patient.

The left will turn on drones when they are used for warrantless searches in the War on Drugs.

Kerry lost not because of his wealth or his income tax returns of which he paid even less in taxes than Romney.
The point is wealth only becomes a factor when it's a republican and not a Kennedy or a Kerry or a Rockefeller or a Pelosi.
Kerry lost because voters are unfairly prejudiced against elite snobs.

The main point of my post, which you miss in the most embarrassing manner, was that the CIA was the prime mover in causing the war with North Vietnam.
The US was never in a war with North Vietnam, which was exactly the problem. Instead, we tried to fight their proxies in the jungles and rice paddies.

One bigass bomb on Hanoi would have ended the war.

The Civil Rights Act was dead in Congress until LBJ took office.

J. Edgar Hoover had donkey pictures of most Washington politicians.
