You asked a question.

I gave you answers.

I guess providing facts shows you "disinterest in real logical debate."

They never met each other, but Rules for Radicals is his playbook. If the Boston Globe, which is a left-center paper on a good day, makes the connection, you know Obama is clearly a disciple. Unless you're an ignoramus.

The isolate and attack tactic is being used on Rush Limbaugh from a sitting administration. Bush has never done that with a media personality. No GOP administration has tried to destroy the middle class by turning it against itself. This is being used by Obama to create a serf class. 95% of us are not going to pay less in taxes. Obama hasn't objected to any tax proposed that I know of since the Inauguration.

You CANNOT possibly be this naive. Rove was excellent at isolate and attack. The rest of your post is a joke.

A long time lurker here wanting to add my 2 cents. As the mom of a 17 year-old daughter, I can't fathom why she willingly put her daughter in the spotlight like she did. She had to have known how hard that would be for Bristol and the rest of the family. I can see how maybe she thought she could be an advocate for special-needs children with her son, but advocating abstinence-only sex education while trotting out your unwed teenage mother-to-be just didn't seem very effective to me. At times, the speech she gave when announcing her resignation made no sense to me at all. Same old Sarah.

Just spent a week with my parents who get their news from the Rush-Hannity side of the political spectrum. Apparently, it is all the "liberal" media's fault for being so mean and ugly to Sarah Palin and her family. I was very disheartened to realize that my dad believes all the crap he hears from these types. He is genuinely afraid of what Obama is doing and will do to this country. I guess I would be too if I believed that Obama isn't really a Christian, wasn't born in America, is actually a socialist, etc. I am angry that Rush and his kind purposefully agitate and stir-up ill feeling towards Obama in people like my Dad. It is really sad.

Excuses, excuses.

It's not that you don't ask logical questions.
It's that you predictably dismiss logical answers.

I'm sorry but "Alinsky" type answers do not fall into the realm of logical answers. I find them lazy and naive. It just shows me exactly where you get your info and that you don't quite question the info you are spoon fed. I think that anyone that reads the 'Rules for Radicals' and doesn't understand that these are basic tactics used in politics by all sides is naive.

huffington post

Sen. John McCain said he was surprised but not "shocked" by the resignation of his former running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. On NBC's Meet the Press, the Arizona Republican said Palin's decision was consistent with his definition of leadership to resign from office mid-term.

NBC's David Gregory seemed incredulous that McCain thought Palin's resignation spoke well of her leadership capabilities.

"You have sustained personal torture, personal attack, political attack, investigation," Gregory said. "You have never resigned from anything. Is it consistent with your qualities of leadership to resign an elected post like this?"

"Sure," the senator said.

"It is?"

McCain said it was a question of how Palin could serve most effectively, and that she had decided she would be most effective if she stepped down. "I respect that position and that decision," he said, "and I cannot tell you the appreciation I have for her."

McCain insisted that Palin is qualified for the highest office in the land. But he declined to endorse Palin for a potential 2012 presidential run, which also surprised the NBC host.

"Can you understand how people would think it's strange?" Gregory said. "You vouched for her in front of the country, that she was qualified for the highest position in the land. Yet, you're not prepared to endorse her now?"


"Ronald Reagan didn't endorse George Herbert Walker Bush until the year of the election," McCain said. "I mean, it's just way too early. I'm confident she would make a fine president. The question is what's the whole political scenario?"

"Do you think she'll run?"

"I don't know. I know she will play a major role."

You do realize that Germany had already been defeated by the time we bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, right? That's what Se7en was referring to.

In any case, the debate over the justification of those bombings was at the time, and remains today, essentially a debate about the additional cost in time and lives needed to defeat Japan conventionally, not whether defeating them was possible. Gen. Eisenhower, Gen. MacArthur and Admiral Nimitz all opposed it; Truman himself framed his decision in terms of reducing the cost in American lives, not in terms of what was necessary to avoid 'all of us speaking Japanese.'

precisely. i don't believe there was any doubt as to who was going to win the war by the summer of 1945 (certainly wasn't going to be germany!). it was simply a matter of when and how, if you will.
