Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Homophobic Comments From Jeff Flake’s Son Reflect GOP’s Isolation

Tanner Flake’s homophobic remarks are what can result when a racially homogeneous life leads to isolation and a blinkered worldview. That’s also a fair diagnosis for today’s Republican Party.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday that Edward Snowden betrayed his country by leaking classified documents about the U.S. government's surveillance programs and warned that the former National Security Agency contractor may be spying for the Chinese government.
"I think he's a traitor,” Cheney said of Snowden in an interview with “Fox News Sunday.”
"I think he has committed crimes in effect by violating agreements given the position he had," he continued. "I think it's one of the worst occasions in my memory of somebody with access to classified information doing enormous damage to the national security interests of the United States."
Cheney raised questions about Snowden's decision to flee to Hong Kong, suggesting he may be sharing sensitive information with the Chinese government. He hinted that Snowden could even be a Chinese spy.
"I'm suspicious because he went to China. That's not a place where you would ordinarily want to go if you are interested in freedom, liberty and so forth," Cheney said. "It raises questions whether or not he had that kind of connection before he did this."
Cheney added that he's also "very, very worried" that Snowden still has sensitive information that he hasn't yet released.
"The Chinese would welcome the opportunity and probably [be] willing to provide immunity for him or sanctuary for him, if you will, in exchange for what he presumably knows or doesn't know," he said.

Bipartisan support for NSA
Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday strongly defended the recently exposed U.S. surveillance programs, which he helped craft in the aftermath of 9/11, but sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of a range of issues from the Syrian civil war to the Benghazi terror attacks.
Cheney, a Republican vice president from 2001 to 2009 under the Bush administration, told “Fox News Sunday” the National Security Agency-led programs have to remain confidential to keep the information from enemies and that he and other U.S. intelligence officials were concerned about a nuclear attack.
“It was 19 guys with box cutters and airplane tickets,” but the next time it could have been a “nuclear attack,” the 72-year-old Cheney said.
He said former NSA contractor Edward Snowden exposing the gathering of information of phone calls and emails has done “enormous damage” to the United State’s anti-terror programs and called Snowden a “traitor.”

In fact, we should get his opinion and do the exact opposite

Ya mean the way he hasn't responded quickly enough to answer to the war drum beating coming from your Republicans?

There's no "right" side to be on, they will never learn this lesson as well as they've learned the lesson that the war industry loves to fund campaigns.

Hypocrisy Overload: Dick Cheney Calls Edward Snowden a Traitor

Dick Cheney helped mislead the country into invading Iraq and has been convicted of war crimes, but he thinks Edward Snowden is a traitor.

....What the former vice president left out of the conversation was that Snowden would have never had access to classified information without the explosion of the private contractor intelligence industry after the Patriot Act was passed. Without the Patriot Act, Edward Snowden may not have been in position to access classified information.

Cheney was part of an administration that fabricated intelligence in order to mislead the country into invading Iraq, so I don’t think he has any room to be tossing the traitor word around.

The former vice president’s capacity for hypocrisy is astounding. Ultimately Edward Snowden is responsible for his own actions, but the policies of Bush/Cheney administration opened the door for this to happen.

The word traitor is being thrown around almost as often as the term whistle blower, but I am not comfortable with either description. The facts are that Snowden is a leaker, who definitely committed crimes. If Edward Snowden did pass intelligence to the Chinese, he is a traitor and a spy.(Interestingly, if Snowden did or does pass information to the Chinese, what does that make Glenn Greenwald?)

being amused by right wing hypocrisy does not equate to desperation.

Yes and you replied that it didn't matter because it didn't poll.

I get it. If it were a Democrat held House pushing through a bill to expand the rights of gay couples you'd be howling.

We would be leading the world. WHAT is the O'bama doctrine? Some liberal moron needs to step forward and explain it.
I'll give you this much, you have a huge set of balls to say something like that but, all for naught because, you're equally ignorant!

The Bush era tax cuts for the rich combined with medicare part D & two wars, all 3 unfunded &, you call the man a genius?

You continue to deny pure facts. Saddam said he had no WMDs, we found no WMDs!

Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 at all!

Daddy Bush bombed Iraq in 92," Clinton bombed all of Iraqs military buildings, destroying all attempts of continuing or starting another nuclear program!

Saddam was complying with the UN inspectors, allowing the searches so, Bush makes up a fricking lie about Mobil labs.

The sanctions imposed by the UN/US was crippling Iraq which forced Saddam to comply

All this damn evidence of incompetence on Bush's behalf &, you choose to call the man a genius! Is the region better off now than when Saddam was in control?
