The Democrats are Dropping Like Flies, and like dead flies, may they be swept up and tossed in the garbage.
They are all losers this year. Dodd can't defend what he did so he is quitting so another Democrat can be named in his place. I just hope that the people of Conn. realize what is happening and don't let them get away with it.
I think this is a good start, and good news. Incumbents have a huge advantage in any election--why would a newbie of the same party have any better chance? And, if Boy is looking for more stalwart, corrupt Marxists to replace the likes of Dodd, where do you find that species? It can't get any worse than it is now
For the good of the party these bozos can't be reelected (even in their brain dead districts) so they bail.
The listless, coldblooded and clueless response of the Hawaii White House to the Christmas Day attack was only the most recent indication. Over the last year, nearly every rhetorical signal from the administration -- from the use of war-on-terror euphemisms such as "overseas contingency operations" and "man-caused disasters" to its preference for immediately. It is no loner Bush's fault. This is Obama's game now. it looks pretty absurd when you see him getting all antsy about taking over health care, and almost falling asleep when dealing with terrorists trying to kill us.
Obama’s meeting with his top national security advisers does nothing to change the fact that his fundamental approach to terrorism is fatally flawed. We are at war with radical Islamic extremists and treating this threat as a law enforcement issue is dangerous for our nation’s security. That’s what happened in the 1990s and we saw the result on September 11, 2001. This is a war on terror not an “overseas contingency operation.” Acts of terrorism are just that, not “man caused disasters.” The system did not work. Abdulmutallab was a child of privilege radicalized and trained by organized jihadists, not an “isolated extremist” who traveled to a land of “crushing poverty.” He is an enemy of the United States, not just another criminal defendant.
The tension in these attacks is between casting Obama as an abrupt departure from Bush and recognizing how much continuity there's been between their approaches to the conflict, however it's named. Bush prosecuted the shoe bomber Richard Reid, for instance, in federal court, even at the height of the narrow, immediate post-9/11 government view of terror suspects' civil rights. The departure that Palin and Cheney attack isn't always so much from the Bush administration as from the cases that Cheney was arguing internally and, as time went on, sometimes losing.
Obama's approach to terrorism is troubling

So what are Obama and Carter? Not Hamiltonians, not Wilsonians, not Jeffersonians, not Jacksonians, not a Reaganite. Possibly anti-Americans.
Obama will be a worse President than Carter simply because of his lack of experience. Carter was in the military and was a governor and executive. Being President doesn’t mean being everyones friend and a nice guy. Our enemies in Afghanistan and Pakistan have not retreated since Obama was elected as he had hoped. Now he needs to surround himself with adults in the Cheney mold to help him. He needs to get educated right away on how to deal with foreign policy issues. I know it bores him but he is the leader of the free world.
