Dr. Ben Carson is a conservative star on the rise, but at least one of his policy ideas might cause the Republican leadership to do a double-take. In an interview with The Daily Caller, Carson said he opposed the invasions of both Iraq and Afghanistan.

The famed neurosurgeon and rising conservative voice said he sent a letter to President George W. Bush sometime after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 and before the U.S. invaded Iraq in March 2003.

“I actually wrote President Bush a letter before the war started and I said, you know, what I would do is I would use the bully pulpit at this moment of great national unity and, very much in a Kennedy-esque type fashion, say within 10 years we’re going to become petroleum independent,” Carson told TheDC.

“And that would’ve been much more effective than going to war because, first of all, the moderate Arab states would’ve been terrified. And they would’ve handed over Osama Bin Laden and anybody else we wanted on a silver platter to keep us from doing that.”

“Most importantly,” he added,“the terrorists will be defunded, and that’s the way you get to them.”

The reluctance to attack Iraq might qualify as a mainstream position these days, at least outside of the Republican Party. More surprising, however, is Carson’s claim that he would not have gone to war in Afghanistan — an action that was generally viewed as an act of self-defense at the time. And on other issues, Carson is also carving out independent positions.

It didn’t take much coaxing for comedian Tina Fey to bring back her impression of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Tuesday’s episode of “Inside the Actor’s Studio.”
Imitating Palin, Fey addressed same-sex marriage ("The Bible says it's gross”) and gun laws ("I believe that if everybody had guns there'd be fewer guns in the stores.")
Fey played Palin on “Saturday Night Live” during the 2008 presidential election.
Though Palin made an appearance on the show that year, she later criticized Fey for “capitalizing on” her vice presidential bid.
Not interested, immediately change channel if Tina Whatshername appears.

TV show for Uncle Poodle types.

Wicked Tuna much better.

The big moment happened during an an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on Tapper's new show, "The Lead." Boehner initially tried to blame President Obama for the sequester, saying that "he forced this process [sequestration] to occur." Then something truly unexpected happened: Tapper pointed out that President Obama didn't want the sequester cuts ... and Boehner conceded the point:


Well, no, he didn't want the cuts. But, uh, we have the sequester as a result of his demands. And I've told my colleagues in the House that the sequester will stay in effect until there's an agreement that will include cuts and reforms that will balance the budget over the next ten years.
So the good news is that Boehner admits the obvious fact that the President Obama didn't and doesn't want the sequester cuts to occur. Nonetheless, he insists on blaming the president for the sequester, a position that makes absolutely no sense given that he also says the president doesn't want the sequester cuts.

<quoted text> Maybe, but you were inbred that way. Years & years of inbreeding dumbed down the already dumb! The end result is you a piece of shit! You really should read up on General Monk Monk ( noble Drew Ali) then tell me who bred who. Your acknowledgment of our dominance is correct, but your assertion as to how we got that way is all wrong. We were created the dominate chosen ones. You were grafted. I can't deny slavery happened, but the truth is they paid quadruple for black slaves vs white slaves because we were physically dominate from the beginning! This is why they did not want blacks participating in sports! We all see the end result. Plenty of stories of how life on earth was created & none of them involve the whiteman until historic religions started talking about the devil. Ironic to say the least!
Read up on your General Monk Monk, fairy tale. Not surprising that you believe in this crap. As I stated before good thing you have a strong back, because thinking is not your game.

He followed the system the Whiteman put in place. You hate the fact that those same rappers you speak of mad something of themselves doing it their way & you can't take that away! Meanwhile your white trash ass is stuck in them trailer parks you were raised in. All that talk of liberals following the herd, yet you fall down & praise the first token blackman to follow the herd & speak against the chosen black president. Your hypocrisy is pitiful!
I try to never take myself so seriously that I can't write or spell properly throughout an entire post because my emotions get in the way. I am not at all perfect but I'm not a basket case like you are either.

So what?

Obama never wants any spending control, let alone cuts, but only massive tax increases.
