Stupid Statements From the Right and Left

This is why I now call myself an Independent.

(By Barbra Streisand)
“August 6, 2005 marks the 60th anniversary of the US bombing of Hiroshima. The Atomic Bomb, which decimated the Japanese city and its people, was never used in combat again. This day is also the anniversary of another "bomb" that was dropped 4 years ago, this time into the lap of President Bush in the form of a memo titled 'Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the US.' While on yet another extended vacation at his Crawford ranch, the President chose to neglect his duties as Commander in Chief by refusing to act decisively and immediately on this impending threat, leading to the worst terrorist attack in American history. These anniversaries remind us to learn from our past actions in order to ensure a safer more secure future”

Concerning Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez:
''You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it,. ``We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability.''

Yup, just when you start to sway in one direction, you're blind-sided by dumb stuff.
