“I Take Responsibility”

Oct 16 2012 Published by under salt

Hillary mans up. The buck stops with her. Libya’s blood is on her hands.

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when that deal was cut. What do they have on each other that keeps these two scorpions locked in a death-cage match?

Fascinating.

Obama / Feinstein 2012?

Aug 20 2012 Published by under salt

If Joe’s gotta go, and Hillary’s a no-go, then Senator Diane Feinstein would be a formidable choice.

She’s pissed at Obama for the egregious, (I say treasonous) leaks over which she has oversight as a senior member of the Intelligence Committee. I believe she also sits on Foreign Relations. Even apart from her impressive credentials and her (liberal!) politics, however, she’s no intellectual slouch. She’s been a solid Democrat, solid Senator, and gracious leader. She would be an excellent choice (dammit).

It was also her house in Georgetown where the deal was done to make Hillary Secretary of State and not the VP in late 2008. It was her dining room, reportedly, where those discussions took place.

She was also a latecomer to ObamaCare and had to be dragged over the finish line. She negotiated more water for the Central Valley farmers who were drying up due to the stupid Delta Smelt.

All of this is indicative of a close relationship & a covenant of trust between Obama & the Senator. The kind of relationship where he might call her and say “If you lay off me about my treasonous leaks, I’ll put you on the ticket.”

Remember where you heard it first.

Lie’s Line

Apr 08 2012 Published by under salt

I’m rather quaint about the American Presidency.  I regard the Office is worthy of respect ’til it hurts.

Ouch.

When do we get to say the President is lying?  Not misspeaking.  Not misunderstood.  Not tired… but L-Y-I-N-G?

Because damned if I think we haven’t crossed that line a while ago.  Quite a while ago.  I mean… What’s coming out of the mouth of the Commander-in-Chief is no mere quantification of “what is, is” or splitting hairs, pubic or otherwise, over some pedestrian misdeed of the philandering or fiscal variety.

We’re hearing full-on, full-monty, bold-faced, easily fact-checked & rebutted, all-out, shameless, jaw-droppingly audacious LIES.

I love my Republican form of government.  I love that we don’t have murals of our leaders all over our buildings.  We take great pains to separate the man from the Office and revere the Office to a fault – like I said, until it hurts.  That Oval provides a kind of force-field of good will around whomever occupies it; buys them the benefit of several dozen doubts… but this guy.  This guy’s killin’ me.  I mean… it’s no joke no mo’:  How do we know Obama’s lying?  His lips are moving.  I’m as serious as a heart-attack here.

And I hate saying it.  I hate saying my President is a liar.  L-I-A-R.  Like… WAY more than usual.  In a WHOLE NEW CLASS of lying Presidents.  The kind of lying that leads one to believe… nothing anymore.  Ever.  Again.  Leaving even the most devoted acolyte no choice but to… vote his lying ass out of Office in the vain hope that the next President will just be an ordinary liar.

That I can live with.

Give me lies about semen-stained blue dresses & expensive china again… Those were good days, huh?

We just didn’t know it, then.
