Under their watch it happened!




Bush briefed on hijacking threat before September 11


Isn’t it time for the media and Democrats to start confronting Dick Cheney with the facts when he starts spouting off that the Obama Administration is failing to protect the American people.    More and more we seeing various spokes-people for the GOP try to distance themselves and the former administration from the facts of what actually happened on 9/11.  The Bush Administration was repeatedly warned that an attack was in the works and decided to ignore it.  The White House was given actionable intelligence and decided it wasn’t worthy of their of time because it didn’t fit into their scheme of things.  Where is the Democrats who is willing to stand up and say the truth “Mr. Cheney, it was you who failed to protect the American people, not President Obama, and not the Democrats”?

    I think most repugs are in agreement with Cheney even thought I consider him a first class hypocrite. I also think that dems and repugs are getting tired of all the crap and hot air that comes out of ALL politicians mouths. Even the politicians themselves are getting fed up with the non-political process that is gripping our nation. Example: Evan Bayh quitting.

    Obama’s election made helped us look good again to other countries in the world when first elected. Now, because the Congressional branch of government, we look like fools – as bad as when we were saddled with Bush.

    Dems are weak – repugs are stupid but effective even in the minority.

    Enough ranting.

  2. PLEASE, rant away, we need more ranting!

      Sch(l)ock is a Republican tool, schooled by the leadership in talking points propaganda. His future is as a commentator on Fox.

      For someone too young to shave yet, it’s regrettable that his handlers didn’t warn him about going up against Rachel Maddow.

        If Bayh’s seat goes to a Republican, he has no chance of running for president. The DNC will shun him as a traitor. He won’t get a dime.

        If, however he runs for president as a Republican, he’ll still lose.

  4. Bayh wants to run for governor again and then make another bid for the white house in 2016. That’s what this is all about.

  5. As soon as he said I’m an “executive by nature” he announced what he’s up to.

    Bayh has already screwed the Democrats royally. As I understand it, he’s been thinking of not running for months, yet he didn’t tell his caucus until now…. even though the Dems need to get signatures and file a new candidate by Friday. I suspect he’s cooked his own goose in the party.

    isn’t he a “blueball dog”?

  8. Well I’m not sure having the party insiders pick the candidate isn’t such a bad thing nanny.

    Secret Joint Raid Captures Taliban’s Top Commander

    The Taliban’s top military commander was captured several
    days ago in Karachi, Pakistan, in a secret joint operation by
    Pakistani and American intelligence forces, according to
    American government officials.

    The commander, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, is an Afghan
    described by American officials as the most significant
    Taliban figure to be detained since the American-led war in
    Afghanistan started more than eight years ago. He ranks
    second in influence only to Mullah Muhammad Omar, the
    Taliban’s founder, and was a close associate of Osama bin
    Laden before the Sept. 11 attacks.

    Mullah Baradar has been in Pakistani custody for several
    days, with American and Pakistani intelligence officials both
    taking part in interrogations, according to the officials.

      The last paragraph of that NYT piece:
      “In November 2001, as Taliban forces collapsed after the American invasion, Mullah Baradar and several other senior Taliban leaders were captured by Afghan militia fighters aligned with the United States. But Pakistani intelligence operatives intervened, and Mullah Baradar and the other Taliban leaders were released, according to a senior official of the Northern Alliance, the group of Afghans aligned with the United States.”

      I’m thinking back to Sunday and Cheney saying on This Week that the Obama administration made us less safe.

      So the Bush admin let the top Taliban military commander go, and the Obama admin got him back…

    This will be our third grandchild, but only our first granddaughter, Bev.

  18. Tea Party Movement Lights Fuse for Rebellion on Right


    Guns and violence, things are going to get ugly as we get closer to the mid-terms.

  19. Screw Bayh, more and more he’s coming off as a big cry baby.

  20. dooty

    Bayh looks like a classic case of “if I don’t get my way, I’ll just take my ball and go home.”

    Fox News Is Serious About This Whole Obama Pronoun-Counting Thing


  22. dog's eye view

    I knew you would be talking about E Bayh. (Good Bayh, good riddance.) Was thinking Eli Lilly, but maybe a stop as governor first. Or not….

    Brian: good post, and this should be said again and again.

    Too many people are willing to give a pass on anything that happened in the past 8 years, and hang it all on Obama. (I see that a lot in reader comment threads on NYTimes — scoffing at Obama for blaming Bush, which Obama has actually not does as effectively as he could… meanwhile they reserve the right to blame Bush’s troubles on Clinton or anything on tax and spend Democrats. Sigh.)

    Nanny: good news on the granddaughter on the way. You and she are going to love it!

  23. I think McCain is going to end up winning the primary but watching him being raked over the coals in the process is going to be a lot of fun!

  24. Is it just me or does anything thing the hype about Bayh leaving the senate is a tad over the top.

    • dnd

      Somebody on Stephanie Miller’s show this morning suggested John Mellencamp to replace Bayh. Interesting idea. He’s politically active and a populist’s populist. Walks the walk and talks the talk.

      And he’s got the enough money so he doesn’t need to be a prostitute to PACs.

    Congratulations, Nanny. Now, you’re really living up to your name!

    Another move to the right: Obama announces two nuclear power plant loans of $8 billion. How much further right can the Obama administration go?

  26. Obama has always stated there is a place for nuclear power, I agree with him. You can’t claim this is a “step to the right” when it’s a position he’s long held.

  27. eprof2

    I guess I never realized he was already on the right! Why didn’t someone tell me earlier? So, where are we going to put all the nuclear waste materials from these latest power plants? Are we really ready for the possibility of a nuclear accident? And, next I guess you’re going to tell me that clean coal really does exist!

  28. Sorry to disappoint, I don’t believe in “clean coal”. Do I think building nuclear power plants is the answer to all our energy problems? not at all. Do I think building new nuclear pants is preferable to building coal fired ones? you betcha. I def. think we need to something to transition us between fossil fuels and renewable and I think nuclear is the way to go. A lesser of two evils if you care to think of it that way.

    Gay and lesbian state workers in Virginia are no longer specifically protected against discrimination, thanks to a little-noticed change made by new Gov. Bob McDonnell.
