The important thing to understand about the Democrat Party is that they have no moral or philosophical principles of any kind.
And that distinguishes them from the Republicans…how, again?
Now, I know many conservatives and non-Ron Paul libertarians are upset with Senator Rand Paul’s affirmative vote, but frankly, that vote doesn’t bother me: Paul voted to keep the nomination from coming up for a vote he knew from the numbers was a done deal if the filibuster option was defeated, and once the Republicans lost that vote — thanks to the McCainian axis of Mavericky Squish, which to his shame included Orin Hatch — Paul decided to show “deference” to the President in a way that, while I don’t agree with it, I can nevertheless understand politically.
Well, as for me, I’m pretty tired of show votes done for “political” reasons. How about casting your votes for principled reasons?
Together with Kerry, Obama has his insane clown posse, and they will do his bidding for an insane clown foreign policy.
I’m glad that my son is out of the Marine Corps. The battle is now for the homeland.
And that man of bedrock liberty-minded conservative principles, Rand Paul, voted with the Insane Clown Posse.
Instead of patriots and friends of freedom, I see nothing but the tyrant and the slave, the people linked
with kings to rivet on the chains of despotism and superstition. I see folly join with knavery,
and together make up public spirit and public opinions. I see the insolent Tory, the blind
Reformer, the coward Whig! If mankind had wished for what is right, they might have had
it long ago.
Apparently my disenchantment with the security-minded serfs-in-waiting is nothing new.
Obama is playing a stupid and dangerous poker with our nation’s security, one that could cost American lives. He is playing typical urban Mayor vs. City Council politics: “Councilman, if you don’t give me what I want, then I am shutting down the police and fire stations in your district.” Obama, once again, has revealed himself as a mean little man with no appreciation for the role of his country in the world. He would rather put our national interests at stake than save money by not flying off on the taxpayers’ money to play golf.
It is somewhat refreshing to see a “liberal icon” take note of the “madness” of King Barack I. How long before Woodward gets trashed by the liberal Mau-Mau machine and has to eat his words? We’ll see.
Unfortunately, even in his announcement that he’d been threatened by the White House, Woodward stated his belief that Obama didn’t know about it. So don’t expect him to turn into an anti-Obama conservative paladin any time soon.
Woodward’s managed to make me suspect Nixon got a raw deal.

Wow, looks like Woodward is going the full David Mamet/Judy Miller combo.This is gonna be fun to watch — Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) February 28, 2013
Leaving aside, of course, that neither of these two mini-me bozotards are fit to wash Woodward’s car – or his toes with their tongues. And I really don’t like Bob Woodward very much at all.
