First, there was Lindsey Graham, spouting:
Then, he tries to explain himself and respond to critics.
I guess he hasn’t seen these yet, otherwise, I’m sure he’d be advocating for “net neutrality”. Or does he already? Hmmm..

Tough choices and a path to prosperity, or the same old status quo and the road to destruction? I know which I choose!
The GOP Path to Prosperity
By PAUL D. RYAN
Congress is currently embroiled in a funding fight over how much to spend on less than one-fifth of the federal budget for the next six months. Whether we cut $33 billion or $61 billion—that is, whether we shave 2% or 4% off of this year’s deficit—is important. It’s a sign that the election did in fact change the debate in Washington from how much we should spend to how much spending we should cut.
But this morning the new House Republican majority will introduce a budget that moves the debate from billions in spending cuts to trillions. America is facing a defining moment. The threat posed by our monumental debt will damage our country in profound ways, unless we act.
No one person or party is responsible for the looming crisis. Yet the facts are clear: Since President Obama took office, our problems have gotten worse. Major spending increases have failed to deliver promised jobs. The safety net for the poor is coming apart at the seams. Government health and retirement programs are growing at unsustainable rates. The new health-care law is a fiscal train wreck. And a complex, inefficient tax code is holding back American families and businesses.
Read the entire column here.
At least 858 U.S. soldiers have died in the Afghanistan war since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009. That equals 60 percent of the 1,427 American soldiers killed so far in the 10-year war in that country.
The enemy has no fear, nor respect, for that so called Commander in Chief. He’s made sure that our troops are put in harms way with unrealistic ‘rules of engagement’. He has no intention of winning this war, or any other war, for that matter. I’ve no doubt the murderous thugs see Obama pretty much the same way a lot of us do….as a weak, ineffective, child, with no leadership skills.
The enemy has no problem using “civilians” to do their dirty work, and we should have no problem taking them out! The purpose of ANY war, is to win. If you have no intention of fighting to win, then get the hell out! Brings our troops home, and let those slime sucking pigs murder each other! As far as I’m concerned, one large bomb would solve the problem. Create a field of glass.
I blame HIM for their deaths!
