Another month, another vacation.
Some of us recall something Barney Frank said during the primaries when Obama and the Hopium Guzzlers were so into “turning pages”.
“This brings me to my particular concern with Senator Obama’s vehement disassociation of himself and those he seeks to represent from “the fights of the nineties.” I am very proud of many of the fights I engaged in in the nineties, as well as the eighties and before. Senator Obama also bemoans the “same bitter partisanship” of that period and appears to me to be again somewhat critical of those of us who he believes to have been engaged in it.
I agree that it would have been better not to have had to fight over some of the issues that occupied us in the nineties. But there would have been only one way to avoid them — and that would have been to give up. More importantly, the only way I can think of to avoid “refighting the same fights we had in the 1990’s”, to quote Senator Obama, is to let our opponents win these fights without a struggle.”
We miss that Barney. We miss a lot of our once friends who used to be interested in telling the truth and not polishing a lie.
Amen to that!
It can be depressing to think about all the people I no longer read, all the places I no longer visit online.
Sorry, that's it. I've got to run my great-uncle to the drug store. He forgot his dental glue.
