To those of us who remember Watergate, there is something disturbing coming out of the Republican caucus in Iowa.  It surrounds that wonderful Canadian Senator Ted Cruz.

Cruz has been running around the country espousing the wonderfulness of Ronald Reagan.  As a matter of fact, he wants us to believe that he is the reincarnation of Ronald Reagan.

Unfortunately, in Iowa, he appeared more like Richard Nixon than Ronald Reagan.  There were two incidents that he pulled off that hurt his opponents at the polls.

One can be claimed to be nothing more than a political stunt, the other can only be defined as lying.  The first incident involved a mailing.  His campaign sent out thousand of “Voter Violations” notices to people in Iowa giving the impression that the state was keeping tabs on who caucused and who didn’t.

The intent was to shame people into caucusing for Cruz.  It said they could clear up their “voter violation” by caucusing and recommended they caucus for Cruz.

It appears to have worked.  Cruz wanted at least 170,000 Republicans to caucus.  He figured he needed that many in order to get enough to win.  The turnout was 180,000 so kudos to Republicans for participating.

Cruz’ team said it was nothing “unusual” for such mailers to be sent out.  His opponents claim it was fraud.  The State does not track if you caucus or not and never sends out notices like this one.  Even the Secretary of State in Iowa called it fraudulent.

The second incident took place during the actual caucus.  This amounts to clear lying to people in order to get votes.  It seems that Ben Carson told CNN that after the caucus, he was planning to return to Florida “to get a fresh change of clothes” and that he planned to attend the National Prayer Breakfast.  CNN reported that news on-air.

The Cruz campaign immediately jumped on the announcement.  But, they didn’t actually say what the announcement said.  They had their floor managers go to Ben Carson supporters and state that Carson was “leaving the campaign” so they should vote for Cruz instead of Carson.

This was all happening during the actual caucus.  When Carson called out the Cruz campaign the next morning, Rick Tyler, the Cruz campaign communications director, said on Morning Joe:

On the Ben Carson issue, it’s just false.  We simply as a campaign repeated what Ben Carson said in his own words.  That is not a dirty trick.

Only they didn’t simply repeat what Carson said.  They lied and said Carson was “leaving the race” and that is not the same.  Cruz did issue an apology of a kind.  He said:

This was a mistake from our end, and for that I apologize to Dr. Carson.

But, of course, he had more to say:

Last night when our political team saw the CNN post that Dr. Carson was not carrying on to New Hampshire and South Carolina, our campaign updated our grassroots leaders just as we would for any breaking news story.

That’s fair game. What the team then should have done was send around the follow-up statement from the Carson campaign clarifying that he was indeed staying in the race when that came out.

The thing is they changed the content of what Carson actually said in order to get more votes.  Yesterday, Carson was on O’Reilly and said:

Here’s the issue, a culture exists within the Cruz camp that would allow people to take advantage of a situation like this in a very dishonest way.

Let’s see what in fact the Cruz campaign will do about those individuals who inappropriately disseminated this information knowing that the caucuses were not over.  They were absolutely anxious to get it out there, weren’t they?

Carson is correct.  Here is someone trying to run for President on the basis that he is an outsider.  Yet, he has resorted to the same type of dirty tricks we came to see from Richard Nixon.  Even the denials from Cruz and his staff sound all too familiar.

Carson said on Fox News that he will fight what he sees as dishonesty in politics.

There are so many people who have said, that’s just the way it is, that’s the way politics is, and you just accept it.

If we expose these kinds of things and we condemn them and if people are the ones who have to say this is unacceptable, we will not do this, this is not the right thing to do, it is not the Christian thing to do, don’t accept it.

But, Cruz claims to be the evangelical’s political messiah!  How can he be involved in un-Christian political practices?  Because he isn’t a Christian at all.  He is simply Richard Nixon reincarnated.

And, the “shirts” keep marching along!

The way the media swarms around the Iowa Caucuses, you would think it will determine who wins the nomination for their party.  New Hampshire can just close down their primary next week.  The winners have been announced, so don’t waste any money on a primary that doesn’t mean anything.

I don’t actually try to predict results, but on the Republican side I was not surprised to see Cruz win in Iowa.  Nor, was I all that shocked that Rubio came in third, even closely behind Trump.

Iowa after all is an evangelical state and they don’t really care about your politics, they care about your religion.  Remember, Rick Santorum won in Iowa just four short years ago.  He didn’t fare well after that.  Or, remember Michelle Bachmann won the “straw poll” just four years ago.  Those two facts should stifle any Cruz winning the nomination assertions going around.

It is on the Democratic side that I see the most drama.  Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are in a virtual tie.  It appears that Clinton may edge out Sanders in Iowa but Sanders leads Clinton big in New Hampshire.  That is real cause for concern for Clinton.

There is the fact that Obama beat Clinton in Iowa in 2008, a surprise win for the President.  Another loss in Iowa could spell doom for Clinton in he quest to be the nominee.

I am frankly still torn between the two.  Sanders talks a very good game, but he isn’t too keen on real specifics for many of his plans.  He says, for example, that he will ensure veterans will receive the help they need and deserve.  But, I haven’t heard just how that will happen.

On the other hand, Clinton still has a lot of baggage following her around.  I don’t think she did anything illegal while Secretary of State using her private email accounts, but that is still to be determined fully.

So, I will wait and see if I can get more details about the two before I endorse either of them.  There are still too many questions for me to make up my mind.

The one thing I noticed on the Republican side is that a full 75% of Republicans caucused for liars.  I know that is a harsh criticism, but it is true.  None of the top three delegate getters are known to tell the truth.

It is also very interesting that a person who now claims to be a “Christian” but was divorced three times came in second in a very religious state.  To me, that is something that is being missed by the so-called pundits about Iowa.  I was not surprised that Trump came in second, but I must admit I was somewhat surprised that he came as close as he did.

It is true that Rubio will be glowing after last night.  He will claim that he “won” even though he came in third.  His placement wasn’t that much of a surprise, but the numbers he garnered were.  Yet, he was the one “establishment” Republican that the party seems to be willing to back.

As a result, he got a big boost from the establishment wing leading up to the caucus.  It will be interesting just how much that wing of the party will be willing to go to stop both Cruz and Trump by throwing their unconditional support behind Rubio.

To me, the polices that are coming out from the three top runners on the Republican side are the most dangerous in my lifetime.  And that includes Richard Nixon.  I dread to believe that they are the “best” the party has to offer.

In any case, the nomination process has officially opened.  Iowa was no surprise to me, except maybe on the Democratic side.  New Hampshire may be interesting on the Republican side, but I believe Sanders will win on the Democratic side.  But, you never know.

It would be nice, as we proceed down the road, if the media would actually put the candidates feet to the fire and ask some meaningful questions.  Like what are your specific plans and policies if you should win the election.  The problem is that the media has lost focus on what their job is.  They lost focus that their primary duty is to “inform” the population.  They are more interested in “dirt” and “scandals” than the actual news.

There is going to be a lot of talk about winners and losers last night.  But, it is Iowa.  A state with a very small niche population.  All last night has shown me is that the Republicans will nominate some kind of wacko to be their standard-bearer.

The Democrats seem to have a real race on their hands.  Something they had not expected when this all started.  From what I have seen so far, their two choices are far better for America than the whole field of Republicans put together.  At least they have illustrated a capacity to think.

There are a lot of issues that still need to be talked about.  Climate Change is real.  Public Education is in trouble.  Hate is running rampant in too many areas of the country.  The Affordable Care Act is constantly under attack.  Energy needs to be addressed.  We need to wean ourselves off of fossil fuels for a cleaner environment and a better, less expensive energy source for our businesses to compete globally.

These are all things that the top three Republicans want to avoid talking about.  They seem to believe that it is not our responsibility to address them or even try to fix them.

They don’t care if you have lead in your drinking water.  They don’t care if you care about the environment.  They want to protect their biggest investors, fossil fuel companies, and shut down clean energy projects.  They don’t care if you have health insurance or if your children can read and write.  They are perfectly fine with your hating people, but only if they are Muslim, minority, women, or gay.

That is what I took from the Republican side last night.  These are the very things that 75% of Iowa voters voted for!

The determining factor in this whole process, including the general election, will be if Americans actually participate.  If they do, the people may actually be the winners.  If not, we will all lose.  It is up to you, so please vote!

Tonight the Iowa Caucus’ will be held kicking off the 2016 Primary Season for both parties.  There are a lot of questions about who will win or lose the caucus for their party.  But, from where I sit, the real question will be whether or not truth wins out, or if lies will win out.

Throughout this campaign, especially on the Republican side, the truth has been a total stranger in the mouths of the candidates.  According to them, we are the worst nation on the planet right now.  There is absolutely nothing right about our country and we need a radical “make-over” in order to put us back on track.

This was made extremely apparent over the last few weeks.  Planned Parenthood has withstood several state investigations and have come out clean.  In Texas, the makers of those videos were the one’s indicted for wrongdoing, not Planned Parenthood.

We are told we should fear our Muslim neighbors because hey harbor terrorists, yet no mention of those nice armed Christian terrorists holding a wildlife refuge hostage in Oregon.

According to them, our military is a total mess and incapable of fighting any wars or defending us from those terrorists we are to be afraid of.  No, nothing is right with our country.  All lies of course, but they make for great headlines.

This has been highlighted during the last debate.  During that debate, Chris Wallace asked Ted Cruz:

If you repeal Obamacare, as you say you will, will you be fine if millions of people don’t have health insurance? And what is your specific plan for covering the uninsured?

Of course Cruz didn’t answer the question.  but he did say that “Obamacare was the biggest job-killer” of all time.

The biggest surprise came on Sunday when Chris Wallace had a follow-up interview with Cruz he pressed the fact that his comment was a lie.

“The fact checkers say you’re wrong.  Since that law went into effect, the unemployment rate fell from 9.9% to 5% as 13 million new jobs were created, and 16.3 million people who were previously uninsured now have coverage.

Not one to be bothered with the facts, Cruz shot back in his usual “it’s all the liberal medias fault” line.

Chris, the media fact checkers are not fair and impartial,” Cruz shot back, arguing that “they are liberal editorial journalists. And they have made it their mission to defend Obamacare.

Wallace wasn’t going to fall for the usual soundbite.  “Wait, there’s certainly no question that more people have jobs and more people health insurance.”

Again, not willing to let facts get in the way of his alternate reality, Cruz responded by saying: “Yes, there is question.  The fact is from 2008 to today, we’ve seen economic growth of 1.2% on average.”

Wallace pushed-back, again: “But there are 13 million jobs created, sir. That’s a fact.”  Cruz was finally getting irritated by Wallace.  “Chris, don’t interrupt me.”

“That’s changing the subject,” the host noted. “Thirteen million new jobs have been created”.   “And that is a historically slow rate of job creation,” Cruz shot back, ignoring Wallace and reality to continue claiming that Obamacare “is a disaster.”

It would appear that Cruz would prefer no Affordable Care Act and a 2.5% economic decline that George Bush gave us.  Or, he really doesn’t care about the truth.  I also find it amusing that the media propaganda wing of the “conservative” movement is the one calling out one of their own for not telling truth.

It is things like this, and plenty more where they came from that makes me ask if the real question tonight will be if the truth or the lies win out.  I am betting that the lies will win out, because as you can see, the “shirts” keep marching along.

 

There are two incidents that conservatives don’t want you to talk about.  One is the terrorists still holding a wildlife refuge hostage, even after their “leaders” have been arrested, and the other is the Flint Water Crisis.

The Flint Water Crisis is something that needs to be talked about.  This could happen again in thousands of cities across America because of our crumbling infrastructure.  Yet, Republicans continue to say that it would cost too much to fix the problem.

The insult comes from the Congressional Oversight Committee.  They recently decided to hold “hearings” on the crisis.  They plan on opening the hearing on Wednesday,  Of course, Republicans are saying the hearing is intended to “get to the bottom” of the crisis.

However, there is one person who is not being called to testify.  The Governor of Michigan Rick Snyder who caused the crisis in the first place.  How can you get to the bottom of something if you are not calling the person who started the whole mess?

Rep. Jason Chavetz (R-UT) is the chair of the Oversight Committee.  A spokesperson for the House committee told HuffPost in an email “Our responsibility as a Committee is at the federal level. We are looking at this from an operational standpoint and our witnesses reflect that.”

But, that isn’t going over very well with Democrats on the committee.  They want Snyder to be called to testify.  “Flint deserves answers from the state on how this terrible water crisis happened and what is being done to make it right,” said Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Mich.) in a statement. “Governor Snyder and his administration’s policies led to this man-made crisis and he must testify so that the whole truth can be found.”

Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-Mich.), who serves as the ranking member on the oversight committee’s Subcommittee on Interior, put out a statement this week calling for Snyder to testify.

Gov. Rick Snyder was at the top of my list of witnesses due to the central role that he has played in this manmade crisis; from the decision to shift from Flint’s original water source for cost-savings to the appalling delay in response to months of complaints by lead-poisoned residents and their children.  I am deeply disappointed at the Majority’s lack of commitment to a thorough and meaningful hearing. A sincere search for truth and justice requires a full review by the entire Committee of the decisions and policies of all those involved.

Why won’t the committee call Snyder to testify?  Well, the majority makes up the witness list.  If Republicans don’t want one of their own to testify, they simply don’t put him on the list.

May this have something to do with the fact that this is an election year?  May it have something to do with the idea that a “conservative” Governor just poisoned innocent people, especially children, and that won’t look too good for other Republicans?

Not calling Snyder to testify is akin to not calling Hillary Clinton to testify about her email servers and then saying that we want to “get to the bottom” of this.  When Republicans say this is on the “federal” level, they mean they are going to hit the EPA very hard over this, and probably blame that agency for the crisis.

The Regional Director already resigned.  Yes, the EPA drug its feet in the matter and is complicit in the poising.  But, the EPA did not create the crisis, Governor Snyder and his administration did.

Additionally, a full year ago, while telling citizens of Flint everything is fine with the water, the state brought in “bottled water coolers” to the state buildings in Flint so their workers didn’t have to drink the “bad” water.  Ironically, they placed these bottled water coolers right next to water fountains on every floor of their buildings.  So, it seems the “knew” the water was bad and still did nothing for the citizens of the city.

What this really boils down to is exactly what David Holtz, executive committee chair of the Michigan Sierra Club said:

It’s just amazingly inconceivable that the House Oversight Committee would hold a hearing looking into the Flint water crisis and not call the person most responsible for it happening.  It smacks of them trying to divert attention and accountability away from Gov. Snyder, and it sounds like it’s a big partisan effort to get people’s attention focused elsewhere.

Holtz also said that Chaffetz is “abetting Snyder in what some have called criminal acts” by not calling him to appear before the panel.

Here is another attempt by the Republicans in Congress to divert attention from something that they consider a distraction to their policies.  It doesn’t matter to them that children from Flint will have problems the rest of their lives.  It only matters that they distance themselves, and their beloved “conservative” Governor from blame.

Another perfect example of how the Party Of Responsibility” isn’t that at all.  I will bet you right now, when this committee completes its hearing, Governor Snyder will get a “get out of jail free card” and we will be told “there is nothing to see here, please go home”.

And the “shirts” keep marching along

I didn’t think it could get any worse than it already has been.  But, last night’s debate was arguably the most nauseating exposition I have witnessed since my last Natural Disaster relief work.  It was like watching seven zombies talking like their brains had already been killed off.

As with he other debates, we learned that Republicans really hate Hillary Clinton.  There for a time, I thought that was who they were debating instead of each other.

Here is what we know these Republican Candidates really believe:

  • Americans are being killed by ISIS terrorists every day in numbers unbelievable.
  • America’s military in incapable of waging wars anywhere in the world, there is no morale in the military except bad morale, and that it is equivalent to a third world country.
  • All Muslims are terrorists and should be barred from coming into the country.  Even if they aren’t all terrorists, they harbor terrorists just the same.
  • The southern border is so porous we can expect the Mexican Army at any time in an effort to take back Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.
  • Even allowing undocumented aliens to gain “legal status” instead of citizenship is the same as “amnesty”.  Which means Cruz is against it, even though he is in favor of it.
  • They all hate the Affordable Care Act, but don’t have any plans for a replacement, except what we had before the Act was put into place.  As a matter of fact, they claim that more people “lost” their insurance than gained insurance.
  • The economy is so terrible that we must have a 25% unemployment rate rather than the 5% rate the Department of Labor says we have.
  • The rich aren’t getting enough money, so we must cut their taxes while we raise everyone else’s taxes.
  • They all want our laws to be based on “Christian” laws, even though they say that is what ISIS wants, all laws based on “Muslim” laws.
  • They all hate the idea of same-sex marriage.
  • They all hate President Obama.  This one is hard for me.  I couldn’t tell if they hate the President more than Hillary Clinton, or the other way around.
  • They love war!  Especially if that war is against a Muslim country like Iran.

There are other things that they talked about, but that is the gist of the debate.  Even when shown video clips proving their “flip-flops” the candidates tried to explain that the clips were wrong.

Of course, all of the pundits want to say someone won and someone lost.  If anything, Ted Cruz came out on the losing end.  He tried the “anger” meme so often he appeared to almost foam at the mouth.  He never answered a single question.  I still say if you put green makeup on his face, he is the spitting image of the Grinch Who Stole Christmas.  Marco Rubio, who many pundits said did well, appeared to be reading from talking points everytime he tried to answer a question.

Ben Carson was totally incoherent.  I sat with my mouth open during his responses wondering just what the hell he was talking about.  Jeb Bush seemed more comfortable without Trump, but his rhetoric of his “proven track record” got old real quick.  Kasich tried to appear confident and happy.  His answers were a little more direct, but not enough to actually say anything about what he would actually do.

Chris Christie had a one track mind.  Hillary Clinton.  Every answer somehow came back to Hillary Clinton, like she was the devil incarnate and he was the second coming sent to stop her.  Rand Paul seemed the most coherent on stage.  He never raised his voice, but he never said anything either.  It was almost like he was just happy to be at the “grown up table” again.

Of course the elephant in the room was Trump.  He was out doing what he called raising money for veterans.  Yet, no one knows which veterans groups are actually going to get any of the reportedly $6 million raised for veterans.  All of the money is going to “trumpforvets.org”.  Which didn’t even exist until yesterday morning.

Since Trump wasn’t there, ratings for Fox News was down for the debate.  Yes, it was still large, but one of the least watched debate so far.  The question is were the ratings down because Trump wasn’t there, or were the ratings down because Americans are getting tired of the same fear mongering and hate mongering every time these candidates open their mouths?

I am sorry, but the RNC should really consider cancelling the rest of their debates.  I feel like I am being forced to watch a very bad movie over and over again because there is only one TV channel and it only has that one bad movie.

If I were a religious person, I would take Ted Cruz’s advice at the end of the debate.  I would pray.  Only I would pray that these morons somehow disappear and leave the rest of us to live our lives in peace and harmony.  Two words none of these candidates can spell, much less define!

In 1991, the New York State Legislature received a letter that read in part:

While disabled veterans should be given every opportunity to earn a living, is it fair to do so to the detriment of the city as a whole or its tax paying citizens and businesses?

Do we allow Fifth Avenue, one of the world’s finest and most luxurious shopping districts, to be turned into an outdoor flea market, clogging and seriously downgrading the area?

In 2004, Mayor Bloomberg received a letter that read in part:

Whether they are veterans or not, they [the vendors] should not be allowed to sell on this most important and prestigious shopping street.

The image of New York City will suffer… I hope you can stop this very deplorable situation before it is too late.

These letters were prompted because after the Civil War, New York City accorded special “veterans licenses” to disabled veterans.  That practice continues.  These special licenses allow veterans to “peddle” merchandise from carts on city streets in order to make a living.

The author of those letters is planning to hold a “fund-raising” event for veteran groups tonight instead of participating in the Republican Presidential Debate.  That is right, it was Donald Trump.

Apparently, talking about veterans is different than helping veterans.  These vets are trying to make a living by selling products.  Trump doesn’t like them hanging around his gleaming headquarters on 5th Avenue because they aren’t as pretty as his workers.

Trump likes to talk like he really cares about veterans.  His actions seem to indicate that he doesn’t give a damn about them.  I find it weird that people trying to make a living on the same street as Donald Trump are considered as “vagrants” rather than vendors.

There is very little information as to which veterans organizations will participate in tonight’s so-called fundraising.  The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America said they would not accept any money from tonight.  Their leader said “we need policies, not charity.”

As of last night, the Wounded Warriors Project was unaware of any participation either.  So, just who is going to “benefit” from this event?

Sorry, but Trump’s history of treating veterans with dignity isn’t exactly what he wants you to think.  He has wanted to get rid of veteran peddlers from 5th Avenue because they are an eye-sore.  He never served. His children never served.

Yet, when his fight with Fox News hits a new high, he uses veterans as his next prop.  He claims he will raise money for them instead of debating.  I hope he raises a ton of money for veterans tonight.  If, that is, the event actually takes place.

However, I would rather hear what policies he plans to help veterans if he is elected.  I am tired of “lip service” from candidates who try to show “patriotism” by praising veterans and then doing nothing to help us.

Since the year 2000, the only things the Republican Party has given America is two wars that were never paid for, a collapsed economy, austerity measures that hurt millions upon millions of Americans, and more wounded veterans from those wars without helping them.

This latest side-show is nothing different.  There are even rumors that candidates like Cruz and Fiorina would like to help out by sending representatives to the event.   Cruz’ voting record proves he doesn’t give a shit about veterans.

Sorry, Republican Policies towards veterans has been anything but helpful.  They really look upon us as Donald Trump sees the veteran vendors on 5th Avenue, with disgust.

Which is why I say this latest gambit is nothing more than using veterans as a prop.  Shame on them!

 

Even before Barak Obama was elected as the first black President in 2008, the right-wing of the Republican Party was doing its damnedest to figure out a way to win over Americans with their smoke and mirror politics.  Then 2015 came along and Donald Trump decided it would be a nice time to run for President himself.

At first, the media, especially the right-wing media talked about Trump like he was one of their own.  Then something happened that turned the table.  Trump started winning in the polls.  Then, after the first Republican Debate, Trump lashed out at Megyn Kelly as Roger Ailes “hit woman” trying to disparage him.

That was when things began to get interesting.  Fox News and Trump split.  Then Roger Ailes tried to rectify things with Trump, and the two got along for a while longer.  But, Trump kept winning, at least in the polls.  Cruz, the real darling for the right-wing was falling behind, and the establishment candidates were declining so fast you almost didn’t see them.

Now, things got very heated again.  Fox News is hosting the final debate before the Iowa Caucuses and announced that Megyn Kelly will be one of the moderators.  Trump threw a hissy-fit.  He said that if Kelly was at the debate, he might skip it.

Ailes didn’t take too kindly to that threat.  He made sure everyone was clear that Kelly would be at the debate even if Trump didn’t like it.  Trump didn’t like it and announced yesterday that he will not participate in the debate.

The right-wing exploded.  Ted Cruz even went so far as to announce he would face Trump mano-a-mano before the caucus.  He even suggested Levin or Limbaugh could moderate that debate.  Of course, he chose two people that have been crying about Trump for a long time and are out to destroy him.

Trump said he was going to do something for veterans instead of participating in the debate.  He is trying to get Wounded Warriors and a TV network to assist in “raising” money for the Wounded Warrior Project.  I haven’t heard if anyone is interested yet or not.

But, this casts a light on just what is going on in the Republican Party right now.  Two heavy weights are squaring off basically for control of the party and the primaries.  Ailes wants a “real conservative” to win the nomination.  Trump doesn’t fit his definition of a “real conservative”.

It will also be interesting to see if viewership for the debate declines since Trump won’t be there.  To me, that will be the real deciding factor in this battle.  If ratings slip, Trump will be able to say he is more important than Fox News.  If ratings remain as they have been, Ailes can say he is stopping Trump and become the hero of the conservative movement.

The flip side of this is that the conservative movement is in trouble itself.  They spent years trying to build up their smoke and mirror fantasy of Conservative America.  Problem is that Trump is blowing that all out of the water with his constantly leading the polls.

It turns out that their “social agenda” based on the religious fanatic aspirations really isn’t what even their own people are interested in.  Their desires are more primitive.  They want America to remain in the hands of “old white” people.  The rest of the conservative movement really doesn’t matter to them.

Just look at Falwell’s endorsement yesterday.  He said, Trump reminds him of his father.  I find that quite fanciful, but what it really marked was Falwell laughing in Cruz’ face and telling him all of his “religious liberty” bluster doesn’t count.

The Republican Party has been at war with themselves for a long time.  Now, it is getting real dirty and really fierce.  It will be interesting to see just who comes out on top.  For once we have a political fight worth watching.  Problem for Republicans is that it is their internal fight.  That doesn’t usually bode well for elections.

The real problem is that once this war is over a wacko group will declare victory.  Then Republicans will get to choose between Wacko A or Wacko B.
