• Former Vice-President Cheney is right.  Obama would have a much easier time dealing with Afghanistan by not thinking.  It’s so much easier to hick it down to the next Administration and, if it’s a member of the opposition party, you can then blast them for replacing your non-strategy with a strategy.
  • Former Bush WH Spokewoman Dana Perino on FOX News: “We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term. I hope they’re not looking at this politically. I do think that we owe it to the American people to call it what it is.”
  • The Ohio GOP is pushing a web ad trying to make Governor Strickland politically liable for the criminal investigations of county officeholders in Cuyahoga County.  When has a Governor ever weighed in on county political matters like this?  No, the Ohio GOP doesn’t know either.  However, the Plain Dealer article that the entire ad is based on notes that the Governor has, in fact, indicated that he would like to see those officials held accountable for any wrongdoing they’ve done and has indicated he would be “pleased” if they would resign their public office.

Amazingly, Sean Hannity did  not chastise Perino for her pre-9/11 mindset. A guess the anthrax attack and D.C.-area sniper shootings also weren’t considered terrorist attacks.

I am disgusted by the morbid fixation on the conservative movement on making the Ft. Hood shootings a “terrorist” plot.  Of course, Hannity didn’t also confront Perino on any of the “warning flags” about the shooter that the intelligence community had found… during the Bush Administration.

If the Ohio GOP really senses that the Cuyahoga County issue is a winner for them (especially in light of Governor Strickland’s very public pushing of Marc Dann out of office), then Strickland is going to be re-elected easily.
