Frankly, I don’t think that any of the architects of the Iraq War should ever be invited on TV to say one word about foreign policy — and especially the Middle East. They have zero credibility to comment. They have been wrong over and over again and created the conditions that spawned the problems we face today.

But if they are invited to act as “talking heads,” interviewers must at least have the common decency to point out their failed track record — and to demand that they do more than criticize the president’s efforts to clean up their mistakes. They must also be required to tell us exactly what they would do to fix it.

And if any of them actually do propose a course of action, you can pretty much be sure that based on their past track records, that course of action is wrong.

So he should go to jail.

John Crawford is dead because ONE paranoid white man and his wife decided he was a threat to public safety and called 911.  The story he originally gave police is falling apart because — SURPRISE! —- there are security cameras, so now he’s changed his tune.

Pretty sure the housekeeper is my #1 fan.

I’ll have to check and see if everyone gets this treatment or if I’m just special.

By the way - I’m taking guesses. What IS it?

Maybe a frog.

“The fundamental law of capitalism is: When workers have more money, businesses have more customers. Which makes middle-class consumers—not rich businesspeople—the true job creators. A thriving middle class isn’t a consequence of growth—which is what the trickle-down advocates would tell you. A thriving middle class is the source of growth and prosperity in capitalist economies.”
