"On Sunday, White House Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser John Brennan said that either the “vice president or others have willfully mischaracterized President Obama’s position and actions or they’re just ignorant of the facts,” referring to Cheney’s comments that because of the failed Christmas Day bombing attempt, it was clear that Obama “is trying to pretend we are not at war.” In an op-ed today, Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) writes that it’s “Cheney, not President Obama, who has misdiagnosed the problem and gotten us off track.”

cheney is both willfully ignorant and intentionally mischaracterizes others as well as being purposefully forgetful. although dems are also guilty, repubs rewrite actions/history to completely suit themselves in ways that's absolutely astounding. thank goodness for instant replays (of which they still deny).

ron paul, alan grayson, dennis kucinich, marcy kaptur and bernie sanders, among a very small group, speak plainly and plainly make others uncomfortable, which is very refreshing.


Ron Paul has a great measure of integrity in the face of opposition. I think his message is consistent, and he is unwavering, so much so that he voted against a bill he's been fighting for since the 1980s because it was part of a larger bill that had unethical regulations (in his eyes and from his perspective). He didn't compromise his principles for political gain.

And he's right about Cheney. He's right about a lot of things!
