Par for the course.
Me? I couldn't care less about Palin's emails or the fact that they were released to those who own them. Us.
But the slimy hypocrisy regarding the high-and-mighty media is disgusting.
FreedomWorks chief: If Romney’s the nominee, tea partiers might have to stay homeI sat out on Clinton/Dole election day. The latter gave me no reason to vote for him and the former was a disgusting, lying troll.
I knew that FreedomWorks was intent on torpedoing him in the primary but I didn’t think they’d take it quite this far quite so soon. Better Obama II than Romney I?
"If Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination for president, Tea Party activists may not show up at all to vote in the general election, one leading group associated with the Tea Party movement is warning.
"'I think that’s a potential problem,' said Matt Kibbe, FreedomWorks’ president, during a wide-ranging interview with reporters at The Daily Caller.
"He also warned that if Republicans nominate another 'John McCain,' activists might even vote third party in 2012.
"'I believe in redemption, but at some point, you sort of give up,' he said. 'And we’ve given up on Mitt Romney.'” [link]
'Collective Military Irrelevance'So the question needs to be asked: Why are we participating in this misguided and anachronistic endeavor?
Wall Street Journal
Defense Secretary Robert Gates is leaving office with a bang, and yesterday his target was a NATO alliance that he said is risking "collective military irrelevance" by spending so little on defense that it can't defeat a two-bit dictator like Moammar Gadhafi after 11 weeks of military action. His ordnance landed directly on target.
In other words, the frequent warnings that declining European military budgets would undermine NATO have finally come true. Mr. Gates said the reality is that NATO is now a "two-tiered alliance," with the U.S. bearing 75% of alliance spending on defense, while 27 other countries pay for the rest. Only the U.K., France, Greece and powerhouse Albania spend more than the 2% of GDP on defense that is supposed to be the price of alliance membership. The U.S. spends about 4.7%, including the cost of Iraq and Afghanistan. [link]
