Joseph Palermo: If anyone would have told me when I awoke that morning that Liz Cheney would be personally handing me a frisbee I wouldn’t have believed them.
Paul Haeder: This young lad looks to me for a male voice, an ear, some guy who looks like a professor, someone who knows a lot, and he opens up, giving me insight into my client that none of his managers could really speak about.
Walter Moss: Hillary Clinton has expressed far more concern about the environment than has Trump, but she has displayed few signs of pursuing a more pacific Middle East policy than President Obama or of discouraging the high-consumption lifestyle that so many of us regard as almost a God-given right.
Tony Butka: Why does the media act like a bunch of genuflecting lick spittles towards these folks? And why do we let them get away with it?
Marc Cooper: In the South Carolina primary, the candidate who ran against Obama in 2008, claiming he was inexperienced, green, ignorant of foreign affairs, “not ready” now holds him up on a Teflon pedestal and decrees that he shall not, ever, be criticized—even by his political friends like Sanders
Murray Polner: So it’s now official gospel: Americans are scared and whenever the next terrorist act occurs, temperatures will soar, and as our past bears out, bad things will surely happen as ambitious politicians, goaded by the mass media, rush to avenge the criminals, guilty or not.
Joseph Palermo: Poor Judy, she’s unaware that her self-serving bullshit last week only reconfirms (albeit in a backhanded way) that “the left” was correct all along about the Iraq War and that she got it dead wrong.
Jerry Drucker: The neo-con thesis suggested by using the super-power of the United States, we could exercise world dominance after the collapse of Russia. Then the U.S., by entering and controlling Iraq, could in time control all the oil production out of the Middle East.
Joe Palermo: The corporate media are treating torture as if it’s just another “issue” like immigration reform or the federal budget. It isn’t. You cannot justify the unjustifiable.
Larry Wines: Just watch and read and listen. The list of irresponsible perps will grow and grow and grow. Because nobody is responsible.
Ivan Eland: Unbelievably, former Vice President Dick Cheney, after being wrong on every foreign policy issue for more than a decade, has again crawled out of his Wyoming cave and begun outrageously sniping at Barack Obama’s performance in foreign policy.
Walter and Rosemary Brasch: Almost one-third of Louisiana Republicans blame President Obama for the slow and largely ineffective response to Hurricane Katrina, which hit the Gulf Coast three years before he became president.
Tina Dupuy: Benghazi is a cynical attempt to gain traction with a nontroversy. The more Congress spends time investigating the less time they have to spend being ineffective at negotiating with the President.
