how close did the last regime come to destroying our democracy, part 1 too many plus 1

SRSLY, folks... the director of homeland security wasn't in NATIONAL security council meetings????? "pushed" to raise the security alert to influence an election?????

and people are critical of the OBAMA ADMINISTRATION? sheesh.

via US News and World Report:

Ridge was never invited to sit in on National Security Council meetings; was "blindsided" by the FBI in morning Oval Office meetings because the agency withheld critical information from him; found his urgings to block Michael Brown from being named head of the emergency agency blamed for the Hurricane Katrina disaster ignored; and was pushed to raise the security alert on the eve of President Bush's re-election, something he saw as politically motivated and worth resigning over.
...and the RIGHT (and tea baggers and town hall protesters parrot their talking points) have the audacity to call the Obama administration "fascist" and compare our president to Hitler??? somebody get those people a DICTIONARY.


  1. Whoa! Looks like my post on the political spectrum fits here much better. Does anyone understand where Hitler and Fascism falls on the political spectrum???? EXTREME RIGHT!! Thank you Dem Dave!
    Education funding may be the lost issue in all of this. Smarter citizens = smarter government. Without college I would only have had 1/2 semester of government for the entire 4 yrs of HS. Don't know what high school kids get now days, but needs to be all four years of high school!

  2. yes, i posted this also on my facebook page and went further into the "fascism" rant. the SHRUB REGIME was well on its way to being TEXTBOOK FASCISM, in all its frightening glory.
