#1 It's also 'as if' Leon is looking for an advance out. It's certainly not going to be Leon's fault!

#4 They do like playing with straw and building things. Problem is straw can't take much pressure and falls apart real easy.

#5 Given the on the record statements of Reid, Pelosi, et al of the Donks, by construct of the point we can now take it from Leon that the Donks did want us to lose in Iraq and encourage the enemy to kill more of our sons and daughters for simple political gain.

#6 Director Panetta is clearly falling into the "nirther and troofer" category as so eloquently explained yesterday. I'm surprised to see such drivel here.

#8 Sounds like something a White House Chief of Staff would say. Perhaps Leon forgot he has a new job now.

#9 He doesn't want it to happen, he just thinks the current policies are making it more likely. He doesn't want us attacked, he wants you to succeed in keeping it from happening by reverting to previous policies which he believes were the reason we were not attacked.

Nothing of the sort. Panetta is playing hardball politics. Troofers think the government caused 9-11. Nirfers... well, you're the resident expert on that.

I'm surprised to see such drivel here.

Not really. We get to read your posts on a daily basis.

#11 The Twoothers never _acted_ like the government caused 9/11, they just used it as an excuse to justify what they always believed in, i.e. there is no foreign threat to national security, and implementing the liberal policies of social control and deindustrialization are more important. It's never worth killing over, but it's always worth setting up another bloody-minded caste system where only the supporters of the regime get to have jobs, or patronage, or whatnot.

If that isn't hardball politics, I don't know what is.

#12 Panetta has done the near-impossible - as a Bambi appointee, surprised me on the downside. He was always a fairly reasonable sort - in general heads above the appalling and bizarre current leadership of the Dems - but this is pathetic is a characteristically Bambi-ish way: amateurish, inappropriate, wrong.

Leon joins the list - a buffoonishly unprofessional press secretary (and that amidst a fawning and unprofessional "press" corps the likes of which this country has never seen) who regularly insults huge swaths of the electorate in dodging semi-soft questions; a Treasury secretary who arguably has the worst resume of anyone in that position in decades (presided over the greatest financial disaster in the era of regulation), and is a bumbling administrator and jaw-droppingly crude tax cheat besides; and on and on (the DOE guy seemed kooky from the outset, he's outdoing himself now with silly and irresponsible talk and "ideas").

But there's nothing random about this. America is, at least with respect to half or more of the populace, and 90% of the "elites", no longer a serious country. This was clear before November (the whine-fest over Iraq in 05-07, prominently). I'd say the intellectual, ethical, and talent levels we're seeing, from the Oval Office on down - while humiliating and astonishing - are exactly what the country deserves. Tragically, the rest of us have the eat the awful cooking served up by the idiots around us and above us.

#13 Either careless words, cynical, or political move, this is a crap statement. Would a bridge or fire inspecter find a situation dangerous and then sit back wanting something to go wrong to prove a point?

I'd like to add the lawyer/career poltico family apointee to Health Human Services who has no medical background and played party political hack instead of reacting to state emergencies as governor; she has recently had serious cosmetic surgery so get ready as health care comes to the table.
