Of course, we were giving arms to the Afghani freedom fighters during the Russian invasion, including stinger missles. Now, if you want to call them Taliban or muhamajin, becomes mere semantics. Read " Charlie Wilson's War" for more detail.

How about a cake shaped like a Bible? Everybody loves cake? Right. And the Iranians are religious types.

That's some mighty fine 3:00 am thinking, Mr. President, but it's 3:00 pm. Shouldn't you be taking your afternoon nap to get ready for your pre-dinner snooze?

I had a discussion with my father recently in which he wanted to know why people were misinterpreting his criticisms of the President as "racist."

I asked him to tell me which policies he disagreed with, after which we discussed at length where those policies originated and how similar Obama 's policies and platitudes have been to Reagan's.

"But I hated Reagan!" He responded.

"Sure. I know that. But your current cohort in opposition to the President would have happily suckled his balls. That's why you're getting accusations of racism - you've thrown your lot in with those who are kinda-to-definitely racist."

I think he got it but he sure didn't like it.

The twisting you libtards have to do to smear Reagan's name makes me want to hustle you all off to Gitmo. Looks like you will do anything to attack the big "bossa nova" of the GOP in your partisan boogaloo. The irony is that you think it would be a cakewalk to waltz into this thread and bad mouth our greatest president, when even a moment spent moshing around 0bambi's record would turn up far worse jive than anything you've been able to foxtrot out against Ronnie. Yet that won't stop you from jerkin' it to your socialist freak-in-chief. He should go back to the Conga!

Most people who post that photo are smart enough to crop the female on the end off when they erroneously claim it's the Taliban.

The bulk of the article gets its history from Wikipedia. Yes, that's how scholarly it is. I half expected it to repeat the claim HW Bush flew an SR71 to go negotiate with them.

He didn't just suck at negotiating with terrorists, he just straight armed them. After all, Cheney needed a boogeyman for the future.

On the bright side, rumor has it that watching that nuclear apocalypse movie broke his spirit and sent him spiraling into senility. Too bad, he should have been able to intellectually grasp the ruination his policies and politics have had on our culture.

But I'm sure they have fox news in Hell, so I'm sure he is down there hurping about Obama.
