Side note: None of the 9/11

Side note: None of the 9/11 hijackers came from Afghanistan. If you're going to harp on 9/11, at least get your facts straight Dick.

Effing Cheney has the nerve to call Rand or anyone who doesn't

...want to go around killing Arabs, "isolationists."

That IS the Neo-Con definition of isolationist. If you want to have diplomacy and question the validity of willy-nilly attacking other countries, that is what you are.

Many deaths and maimings are on the hands of Cheney. The bastard is a modern-day Nazi SS officer.

Great discussion! Too Bad

Dick Cheney And Obama Are 8th Cousins

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/21340764/ns/politics/t/lynne-chene...

WASHINGTON — Though they may spar across the political aisle, Vice President Dick Cheney is close enough to Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama to call him “cousin.”

Eighth cousin, that is.

Lynne Cheney, the vice president’s wife, revealed this tantalizing bit of political trivia during a television interview Tuesday.

She said she uncovered the long-ago ties between the two while researching her ancestry for her latest book, “Blue Skies, No Fences,” a memoir about growing up in Wyoming.

“This is such an amazing American story that one ancestor ... could be responsible down the family lines for lives that have taken such different and varied paths as Dick’s and Barack Obama,” Lynne Cheney told MSNBC.

According to her spokeswoman, Sen. Obama, D-Ill., is a descendent of Mareen Duvall. This French Huguenot’s son married the granddaughter of a Richard Cheney, who arrived in Maryland in the late 1650s from England, said Ginny Justice, a spokeswoman for Lynne Cheney.

Something is not right. Why

Something is not right. Why are they talking up Rand. They are up to something. I don't know what it is...can't quite put my thumb on this one.

To the left Rand represents

To the left Rand represents division in the enemy ranks. So it behooves them to talk him up and widen the division. When Rand attacks Democrats more than Republicans they'll come down on him.

Because it's 2014 and Rand is already the frontrunner.

When lib/dem Establishment, including HuffPo leadership are praising Rand, it's because he's strong and right on point, and they don't want to get run right over in the near future. They know Hillary is weak, she only has so-called liberals anxiously waiting to support a woman who isn't even liberal. That's it. Fear, I smell it from here. Just smile.

Division

they want to split the party.

"Endless money forms the sinews of war." - Cicero, www.freedomshift.blogspot.com

Divide

and Conquer!

Like his father didn't?

Ron led; Rand is following his father in questioning U.S. foreign policy.

The biggest difference: The Neocons laughed at Ron; they're hissing at Rand.

Ghandi quote applies

First they ignore you -- early Ron
Then they laugh at you -- recent Ron
Then they fight you -- Rand
Then you win -- ???

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Brother, do I ever hope you

Brother, do I ever hope you are right. A Good President could do a lot of good in this country, even with a crap Congress. Impoundment, which means withholding of funds, could be done at times, Nixon did it. Veto pen here and there. Got to convince the sleepers in the GOP Primary first and foremost though....
