The worst part? The Democrats will run Hillary, who is unpalatable to many of us who were paying attention in the 90's, or if she doesn't run, a Kerry clone. I live in Ohio, so I don't get the luxury of voting my conscience; I'm forced to vote for the Democrat. Christ, I wish I were blissfully ignorant about politics.

b2theory: spawn73: Karac:

We create thousands upon thousands of more terrorists and extremists by invading Iraq than we ever killed there.  The US invading Iraq was the greatest recruiting commercial for terrorists in the world since the Russians invaded Afghanistan.

The Soviet Union didn't invade Afghanistan.

There government of Afghanistan asked for the help of the Soviet Union.


Yeah, that government was "teh ebil" in the context of the cold war. But at least communists have this thing with universal free education, healthcare and building lots of infrastructure. And they don't differentiate between boys or girls.

Whatever came after the Soviet Union leaving has just been pure shiat for Afghanistan.

By that math we didn't invade Vietnam.


Which is probably why noone ever claims USA did.

They almost always ended up being 'back up to prewar levels'. Occasionally, they went beyond 'prewar levels', but usually, it was either just back to what it had been before we broke the place, or "Still not there yet."...

LarryDan43: If something made your family billions of dollars wouldn't you think it was worth it? Sure lots of dead soldiers...but whatever. Billions!


Reminds me of a scene near the end of the movie "A Man for All Seasons", right after a witness by the name of Richard Rich gave false testimony to convict Sir Thomas More of treason:

Thomas More: There is one question I would like to ask the witness.
That's a chain of office you're wearing.
(to the judge) May I see it?


[More looks at the chain around Rich's neck]

Thomas More: The Red Dragon. What's this?
Court Judge: Sir Richard is appointed Attorney General for Wales.
Thomas More: Why, Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his
soul for the whole world. But for Wales?


Considering the fact that Cheney is totally bereft of a soul, the question of choice between billions of dollars and dead soldiers would have never entered his thought processes.

BMulligan: This is a guinea worm (Dracunculus medinensis):

[www.malevolentdesign.org image 300x273]

D. medinensis is a parasite which has been reported in humans, dogs, cats, horses, cattle, and other animals in Africa and Asia. It enters a host by way of host ingestion of stagnant water contaminated with copepods (water fleas) infested with guinea worm larvae. The adult worm grows within the host and eventually moves downwards, usually to the lower leg, through the subcutaneous tissues it leads to intense pain localized to its path of travel. The painful, burning sensation experienced by infected people has led to the disease being called "the fiery serpent". Other symptoms include fever, nausea, and vomiting. Once a Guinea worm begins emerging, the first step is to do a controlled submersion of the affected area in a bucket of water. This causes the worm to discharge many of its larva, making it less infectious. The water is then discarded on the ground far away from any water source. Submersion results in subjective relief of the burning sensation and makes subsequent extraction of the worm easier. To extract the worm, a person must wrap the live worm around a piece of gauze or a stick. The process can be long, taking anywhere from hours to months. It is of great importance not to break the worm when pulling it out. Broken worms have a tendency to putrefy or petrify. Putrefaction leads to the skin sloughing off around the worm. Petrification is a problem if the worm is in a joint or wrapped around a vein or other important area.

Dick Cheney is the only person who ever lived who actually deserves guinea worms. Sadly, they are repulsed by him and will have nothing to do with him.


And who's been working for the last 3 decades to ensure that neither Cheney nor anyone else has to endure such an agonizing experience?

Saddam wasn't exactly cozy with al Qaeda. There was no way they were getting ahold of his non-existent WMDs. Cheney's either being disingenuous or he's been drinking way too much of his own Kool-Aid.

Six of one, half-dozen of the other.  Saddam's had business with terrorist groups, half-assed patronage similar to the funding we provide terrorist groups that attack Iranian authorities.  Which is not what Dick was implying (disingenuous) and he has managed to convince himself that WMD nonsense was possible.

He's even convinced himself that the war paid for itself and the national debt is because of unions and welfare, and if we just did away with social spending everything would self-correct.

I like Hillary quite a bit. I just don't think she'd be a good President. She's smart, she's hard working, she's thorough and she's tough. She was a fine Senator and a very good Secretary of State. I would put her on the Supreme Court in a heartbeat. But she doesn't have the vision or the ability to inspire that a President needs.

So it's not about hating Hillary. It's about realizing that she and the Presidency aren't the best match.

Well, it's not bad memories of the 90's. I rather liked Bill as president, all things considered. There was plenty of sh*t he did that I didn't like, but you'll have that with any president.

Hillary isn't a bad candidate, necessarily, as she'd probably win, but she enrages conservatives so much that she might blow the downticket with their turnout. That's not really my concern, though. My concern is that I think she'd be a bad president.

I think she'd reward the party faithful with patronage positions, just like W. did, and we can ill afford incompetent ass-kissers in the executive branch again. I also think she'd bring on board another corporate shill for VP. Biden's bad enough, but imagine if we got someone with Gore's political chops who owed as much to Wall Street and Wilmington as Uncle Joe. The nascent CFPB would be murdered, or at least gelded, in its infancy.

I also think she's a radical in all the wrong ways. I'd love to have a radical like Sanders in the White House*, but she's more of a radical like Bloomberg, IMO. I fear she'd spend her capital fighting all the wrong fights, and alienate independent voters the way the GOP's war on vagina has for them.

*Not Sanders himself, probably, but someone like him.

She'll fight for gun control, but not fairer taxes. She'll fight for union bosses' power and rights, but not for union workers' rights. She won't fight for a higher minimum wage, but she might fight for some token Social Security fix, like a 1% raise in the cap or some crap like that. If she fights for immigration reform, it will be in a manner that will benefit corporations more than either the immigrants or the native workers in danger of being replaced. I feel that she'd fight for nearly the exact opposite of all the things Fark loves Elizabeth Warren for, but somehow, Fark still loves Hillary. I know her tenure as Secretary of State has shined the hell out of her image, but surely we can think back far enough to remember what an entitled harpy she was in the '08 primaries.

Mostly, though, she's old. Not old in body, but old in spirit. I don't want another administration fighting yesterday's battles with yesterday's sensibilities. The true beauty of the Clinton and Obama presidencies was the youth of them. George W. should have had the same vigor, but he brought Nixon and Reagan's offal in with him. We're in the midst of a culture war in this country, and have been for the last 60 years. I, for one, don't want to be led by a general from 20+ years ago. I don't want my representative to fight the battles of Watergate and Murphy Brown.

In short, I don't want the Democratic version of George W. Bush's presidency. I want someone who will fight for the working poor. I want someone who knows who the "middle class" truly are in this country, and that they're less of a "middle class" than they are a small, landed gentry. I want someone who knows that the people we assume are "middle class" in this country are nothing but the working poor, many of us living beyond our means through credit. I want someone who will push hard for marriage equality, who will push for demilitarization of the police, who will punch the NSA, the TSA, and Homeland Security hard in the nose and put them in their place. Hillary is none of these things. Elizabeth Warren is most of these things. There has to be some budding rock star out in the states who could be all of these things. I feel like I've seen some lesbian governor who I'd love to vote for, but damned if I can remember her name.

On the plus side, it would be funny as hell to see her constantly kick Boner and McTurtle's asses back and forth across the Senate/House floors. If there's one thing she'd be good for, it's putting the goddamned Tea Party monster in its sniveling grave for good.

TheShavingofOccam123: I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to "liberate" Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called "democracy" in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq's oil revenues. Instead, this war has cost the United States over $3 trillion. I especially did not join the Army to carry out pre-emptive war. Pre-emptive war is illegal under international law. And as a soldier in Iraq I was, I now know, abetting your idiocy and your crimes. The Iraq War is the largest strategic blunder in U.S. history. It obliterated the balance of power in the Middle East. It installed a corrupt and brutal pro-Iranian government in Baghdad, one cemented in power through the use of torture, death squads and terror. And it has left Iran as the dominant force in the region. On every level-moral, strategic, military and economic-Iraq was a failure. And it was you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, who started this war. It is you who should pay the consequences.

and a very good Secretary of State.

Agreed.

I would put her on the Supreme Court in a heartbeat.

Sure, why not, but she'd never, ever be confirmed.

But she doesn't have the vision or the ability to inspire that a President needs.

She has the vision, just not the vision that I want to see in there.
She had the ability to inspire 20 years ago. She was no small part of Bill's popularity. She really hurt him in the midterms, though. Conservatives hated her worse than they hate Obama, and they came out in droves in off-year elections because of it.

So it's not about hating Hillary. It's about realizing that she and the Presidency aren't the best match.

It's a little of both for me, honestly.
