"He was thinking about invading Iraq in 1999," said author and journalist Mickey Herskowitz. "It was on his mind. He said to me: 'One of the keys to being seen as a great leader is to be seen as a commander-in-chief.' And he said, 'My father had all this political capital built up when he drove the Iraqis out of Kuwait and he wasted it.' He said, 'If I have a chance to invade, if I had that much capital, I'm not going to waste it. I'm going to get everything passed that I want to get passed and I'm going to have a successful presidency." Herskowitz said that Bush expressed frustration at a lifetime as an underachiever in the shadow of an accomplished father. In aggressive military action, he saw the opportunity to emerge from his father's shadow.

Republicans have once again shown themselves to be the superior snipers.

A recent example of this was their asinine accusation that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had the “Benghazi Flu”.  It is only four years until the next Presidential election, and those who do not want another Clinton as President are getting their low blows in early, inane and insane as they may be.

  One wonders how much more absurd the Republican Circus can become.

 But give credit where it’s due, and that’s the credit that goes to the media buffoons who are cheerleaders and mouth pieces for the lunatics in the GOP.

 Yes, I am biased. 

There are fewer Democrats who are kooks.


Another hot potato and red herring in the news was whether Beyonce had sung the National Anthem live, or had lip-synched it.

Did I notice?

Did I care?



President Obama is getting bashed and denounced because he is championing the environment.

This is quite a disappointment for those who supported Bush’s policies for killing the environment.

The GOP is the more suicidal political party.


The U.S. is assisting France in yet another military “operation”, this time in Mali.

Ron Paul calls US involvement in Mali 'undeclared war'


When will we stop giving away our treasury to other nations, and begin caring more about our own nation?

Many things that have been done in the name of National Security have not always made us more secure.
