The politics of spite

I just read the following comment here, and was, to say the least, dismayed:

“I’m hoping every day for something to pop up far beyond their control that throws a monkey wrench into this ongoing planned destruction, anything from an asteroid incoming, solar flare burst, super volcano eruption (Yellowstone basin) or non-flu related pandemic; ie., anything to put an end to these wars and force America to contract back to its shores in order to simply survive, lick its national wounds and hopefully stage a rebirth from many years of corruption and rot at the top.”

Ensign

Stop it – Stop it – Everybody is jumping on the Ensign destruction bandwagon. Where are all the liberals who said when Bill Clinton did it- “It’s his own personal business and shouldn’t be a political issue.

GOP silence on Ensign’s ethics problems

The second-ranking Senate Republican offered no support Sunday for embattled Sen. John Ensign, facing renewed criticism over an extramarital affair with an aide and the actions he took on behalf of her husband.

Not so fast.

First the Finance Committee bill must be combined with a more liberal version that the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee wrapped up this summer. This merger is so rare that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has never attempted it on any piece of legislation — much less one as complex as President Barack Obama’s top legislative priority. The senator from Searchlight, Nev., will need plenty of guiding light.

Obama must face harsh reality of Afghan war

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama denounced the war in Iraq and U.S. strategy there, vowing if elected to draw down troops and send them to Afghanistan to address the growing threat from al-Qaida and the Taliban.

“There is no military solution in Iraq,” Obama said.

Now, with mounting U.S. casualties in Afghanistan, waning public support for the war and a dire assessment of the situation on the ground by his commanding general, Obama may be forced to decide there is no military solution in Afghanistan, either.
