What Bush and his cronies deserve is a trial at The Hague for war crimes, period. End of story.

The Tea Baggers were quiet when the Bush gang grabbed phone records some seven months before 9-11.
The Tea Baggers are irate because thanks to Obama, 30 million people can now get health insurance and not be denied or canceled for pre-existing conditions.
I don't get it.
The Tea Baggers were quiet when the Bush gang ran illegal wiretaps, again before 9-11 and greatly enlarged the size of government.
The Tea Baggers are irate because the Obama government is too invasive and too big.
I don't get it.
The Tea Baggers were quiet when the Bush gang gave the top 2% huge, unfunded tax cuts.
The Tea Baggers are outraged because Obama gave 95% of them, tax cuts.
I just don't get it.

Obama is Muslim.
Obama is a socialist.
Obama is a communist.
Obama is not a natural citizen.
Obama wants to take their guns.
Obama wants to outlaw fishing.
Obama is a fascist.
Etc., etc., etc. ad nauseam.
What they really object about Obama is that he is a black man in the White House and he is not on the yard staff or service staff.
Yes Virginia (and Arizona), racism is alive and well in the America of the 21st century.

Latest survey shows that only one in five Americans consider themselves republicans.
These would be the mouth breathers and mentally deranged that consider Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity & Glen Beck to be the true leaders of the party.
To prove my point check out this gem of a site,
As is plain as day, paranoia runs deep among the extreme right wing of the republican party.
Keep up the good work boys and soon, if we are lucky, the deranged core that represents the republican party today will go the way of the Whigs.

Where was this outspoken trait during the past eight years? For eight years, or at least after 09-11-01, Cheney was the man who wasn't there, at one undisclosed location after another, one rarely saw a glimpse of this frightened little man.
Now if it is Sunday, Cheney must be on television slamming the Obama administration for making America "unsafe" when his very appearance on television gives testimony to the opposite. Col. Wilkerson was right when he noted that Cheney is a man who frightens easily, in answer to a question regarding his being at undisclosed locations or otherwise hiding in bunkers since 09-11-01. It was only after the election of Obama that he suddenly lost his fear and began speaking out, which proves once again that in addition to being a coward of the first order, Cheney is also a political hack and, by definition, a war criminal.
Prosecute him and the rest of the Bush team who authorized and got off on torturing prisoners? No, but honor our international treaties concerning war crimes and send them to The Hague. Let the court there do it's job and put these war criminals where they belong, in jail. While it would be just to sentence them to be forced to endure the very procedures they authorized, torture is wrong and that includes doing it to those who have authorized it.

Unfortunately, he has run the country into such a deep ditch that it will take years to recover.
We need a South African style Truth Commission to prosecute the criminals of the Bush Maladministration. Anything less will show that breaking the law and trashing the Constitution is fine as long as it is done by the White House

Being a poll worker here in Orlando, I must vote absentee. This weekend I completed my ballot and shall return it to the Board of Elections tomorrow afternoon as I must be there to attend a pre-election training session.
Suffice it to say that my selections reflected my disgust with incumbents.
As for the Presidential selection, I am so unimpressed with either McCain or Obama that I seriously considered voting for, shudder, Bob Barr. Being fearful of a global calamity were I to vote for Barr, considering my long held opposition to his politics, I made another choice.
The choice I made will likely disappoint if elected but I made it so the hell with it!
For whom did I vote? Really, now, it is called a secret ballot for a reason.

Pelosi says Bush a total failure.
Pot, meet kettle. Kettle, meet pot.
While I am most assuredly no fan of The Boy King, for Pelosi to call him on his competence is somewhat amusing, for has there ever been a Speaker as incompetent as Pelosi?
The woman has set the progress of women, and the nation, back decades with her abject failure as Speaker.
The time has come to clean house, indeed, and one can only hope that the voters in her California district realize just how much of a joke and a drag on the party Pelosi has become.
She is matched in her incompetence by that doddering fool in the Senate, Harry Reid.
Has there ever been such a Dunderheaded Dynamic Duo in the leadership positions of the congress in the history of the republic?

Hillary makes a gracious concession speech promissing to support Obama.
Obama supporters continue to bash her in every way. They are as vile and filthy in their comments as were the nutjobs on the republican right in their diatribes of the 1990s.
Perhaps the reason is that they know she was, by far, the most qualified person running for the office. She was light years ahead of the "Dope with hope", America's first Affirmative Action presidential nominee.
Howard Dean and the DNC have gone a long way to splintering the Democratic Party.
My reply to an email asking for contributions:
"Come together? After you and the DNC tried to kneecap Sen. Clinton at every turn, you have the unmitigated gall to ask for unity. Suffice it to say that your actions and that of the DNC during this primary season have convinced me to leave the Democratic Party and become an independent.
As for the Rules Committee decision last week where the rules were followed except when they needed to be ignored and made up on the fly, it was a disgrace and an affront to everything the Democratic Party has stood for since the days of FDR. All of you who perpetrated that fraud upon the voters of Michigan and Florida should hang your heads in shame. That is presuming, of course, that you have a sense of honor and dignity that would allow you to recognize the shame.
Please remove my name from your mailing lists."

The DNC Rules Committee decides to enforce the rules by breaking the rules.Holding sessions and having votes, in secret, is specifically against DNC rules. After all, how was what happened yesterday different from what happened in those "smoke filled rooms" of yore? Neither the DNC or the Michigan party have the right, under the rules, to take away delegates voted by the people. Do I smell a federal civil rights action in this?
Puerto Rico continues the trend of Clinton handing Obama his head on a platter. Could it be because he is seen by a significant number of democrats (over 50% of those participating in the primaries) as an empty suit? Nah, that cannot be it... those people are racists.
Obama reminds me of George W. Bush, except that Bush is white and when he first ran for president, had more experience (as scant as it was) than Obama. Barry Obama, the black George Bush. Has a ring of truth to it doesn't it?Big buzz about Michelle Obama caught on video ranting about whitey. Hmmm, she seems to have disappeared the past few days, I wonder why. Maybe she was talking about breakfast cereals, after all Wheaties could be mistaken for whitey.
Yesterday was a sad day for the Democratic party and a good one for President McCain.

Obama is blown out in West Virginia.
Damn those racist West Virginia voters.
Donna Brazille, discussing what to do about FL & MI, insisting that the rules are THE RULES, period. While Howard Wolfson insists that voters are more important than rules.
Brazille will lose that argument every time and so will the democrats if they insist on it. Besides, didn't IA and NH both hold their primaries earlier than the day agreed to by the DNC? Were they penalized?
The likelihood of a repeat blowout in KY is high. Damn those racsist voters!
Of course the 90% of the AA vote going to Obama has nothing to do with race. Yeah, right and the moon really is made out of green cheese.
I love the way the media expects the Clinton supporters to make up and play nice for Obama after having been called six kinds of SOB, and worse, for many months now. Makes one wonder what world they are living in.

Obama gets over 90% of black votes in IN & NC. Obama is a good campaigner.
Hillary gets 63% of the middle/working class white vote in IN & NC. Those whites are racist.
See anything wrong with that picture?
Hillary should quit and end the race.
That makes as much sense as the Giants quitting after the Patriots scored with 2:42 to go in the 4th quarter of the Super bowl. After all, there was no way they were going to go all the way downfield to score, was there?
I am so old that I actually remember when the nominee was decided upon at the convention and not on the first or second vote.
Obama will drag the party down to ignomious defeat much in the manner of McGovern (a war hero and a good and honorable man) did in 1972.

Hillary wins in Pennsyvania and Obama and his supporters whine in return. She won because middle class whites are racist, or so they would have you believe. They see no racism in the fact that Obama garnered upwards of 90% of the black vote. Nope, that's just the result of good campaigning.Is there a problem with Obama getting such high percentages of AA voters? Not at all because every ethnic group votes for their own when the first candidate comes along who has a chance to win the election, any election.
The Irish voted overwhelmingly for their first viable candidate for any office as did the Poles, Jews, Italians, etc.. But there is a problem with the Obama camp explaining their loss as a result of racism.Obama lost because he comes across as a man who talks out of both sides of his mouth. He came across as weak in the debate. Mostly, though, he and his followers come across as rude, crude and totally lacking in class, as his repeated stealth one finger salute when mentioning Hillary on the stump. One expects such foolishness from a child but a grown man?
Should Hillary win in Indiana, regardless of the margin, West Virginia and Kentucky it will send a message that Obama has a problem "closing the deal" regardless of the outcome in North Carolina. Everyone needs to remember why the democrats invented super delegates in the first place. Hint: It wasn't to act as rubber stamps at the convention.I and others have made a comparison between Obama in 2008 and McGovern in 1972. Such a comparison does not equate Obama with McGovern for George McGovern was a bona fide war hero and seasoned politician without any hint of scandal. Obama cannot claim the same. The comparison is made based on what I believe will happen should Obama be the nominee of the Democratic Party, as in 1972, 2008 will be a blowout of historic proportions with democrats once again finding themselves on the short end, the very short end, of the electoral count.

Let's examine the results, shall we? We have been told that the caucuses had 'record turnouts' and the facilities where they took place were not up to the task. First, Wyoming has some 59,000 registered democrats. Second, total turnout was 8,755 democrats.
Simple math tells us that total turnout was 14.8% of registered democrats. Now 14.8% may very well be a record turnout for Wyoming but 14.8% is in no way, shape or form a turnout to be proud of.
Oh yes, Obama's 5,378 votes represent 9.1% of registered democrats. Given the perspective of a reality based environment in Wyoming, the media reasoning behind the hoopla over the win seems a bit unfathomable."
