You know that it’s all unraveling when even Maureen Dowd is figuring out that the Democrats are just Republicans with less money.
W.’s administration played up Al Qaeda ties, exploiting 9/11 to invade Iraq, which the neocons had wanted to do all along. The Obama administration sidestepped Al Qaeda ties in the case of the Libyan attack to perpetuate the narrative that the president had decimated Al Qaeda when Osama bin Laden was killed, and to preclude allegations that they were asleep at the switch on the anniversary of 9/11. Better to blame it all on a spontaneous protest to an anti-Islam video on YouTube.
It’s remarkable that President Obama, who came to power abhorring the manipulative and duplicitous tactics of the Bush crowd, should now be vulnerable to similar charges.
You know you’re in trouble when Donald Rumsfeld is the voice of reason.
Uh-huh. Or when you catch Democrats pulling the same shabby tricks as Cheney & Co. When MoDo catches on, the only ones who could still be out of the loop work for Fox News.
The Democrats are so deeply into the tank to corporate interests that this so-called “election” is little more than a Hobson’s Choice: vote for Romney, we lose; vote for Obama, we still lose but it takes a little longer.
Maybe it’s time for Roosevelt/Kennedy Democrats to take a stand at last against the Nixon/Reagan Democrats and vote for somebody – anybody – else. Third party candidates are suddenly looking a lot less impossible. I mean, since the Nixon/Reagan Dems are in charge, what exactly is left to lose any more?
