About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

TREASON. I think the GOP'ers relentlessly persecuting Obama are now guilty of it.

I posted this elsewhere here - but thought it might be worth its own thread. It was a response to rhett o rick who wondered if jonathan karl and his ilk might be guilty of sedition in cooked and concocted "news" coverage that passed off GOP-doctored talking points as the real thing from the White House. I think it smacks of flat-out TREASON. And I think we oughta start a drumbeat about it. Hit these bastards back HARDER than they hit us.

Bill Maher broached the subject last week with Michael Moore - wondering aloud whether all this obstruction was tantamount to treason.

Well, I think he makes a GREAT point, and WE ought to be repeating that meme and starting to bring it to life.

Consider:

At this moment, we still are a nation AT WAR. We presently have thousands of Americans IN HARM'S WAY, IN ACTIVE COMBAT, IN LIVE HOT ZONES. FACING ARMED AND RELENTLESS AND WELL-ARMED ENEMIES. RIGHT NOW. At this very instant. Afghanistan mainly. But ANYWHERE in the frickin' Middle East, their lives are literally on the line.

Now - when a President presides during wartime, that makes him a wartime president, does it not?

And what else is a President known as? How 'bout Commander-in-Chief of ALL United States Armed Forces? Yep, WHOEVER the POTUS is at any given moment, that's his OTHER title. That's what else our nation's Chief Executive is.

Now - what would you call obstructing the Commander-in-Chief of all United States Armed Forces DURING wartime? I think it just might be TREASON. Probably HIGH Treason, at that. Because like it or not, the United States of America is still at war.

So that means Barack H. Obama is not only the current President, he's also Commander-in-Chief of all U.S. Armed Forces. And at THIS time, he's a WARTIME President and a WARTIME Commander-in-Chief. Anybody willfully getting in his way and impeding and obstructing his job is, in effect, committing TREASON. After all, they're obstructing the Commander-in-Chief of all U.S. Armed Forces DURING A TIME OF WAR.

What do you think the republi-CONS would be doing now - if it was their guy in the White House, facing this much on-going opposition?

This whole mess needs to be reframed and renamed. And if they were blathering about the "I-word" then I think it's high time we started bringing up the "T-word."

It's time to fight these bastards with EVERYTHING WE'VE GOT. TREASON. That is what the GOP is now GUILTY of. They've even got the "G-for-guilty" in GOP already in place.

I'd like your take on this. I think it's messaging we should start circulating. Maybe it'll catch on.

What do you think?

Actually, you might not be far off.

LOVE this!!!!!!!!!!

Did anybody see his "Snow White and the Seven Worfs"? It was a composite photo. The Disney Snow White was surrounded by seven identical photos of the Klingon Lt. Worf in "Star Trek the Next Generation" and "Deep Space Nine." And underneath each of the seven photos was the name "Grumpy". So it was "Snow White" and "Grumpy," "Grumpy," "Grumpy," "Grumpy," "Grumpy," "Grumpy," and "Grumpy"!!!

Welcome to DU, giftedgirl77!

Good to have you with us! Reminds me of this old Peanuts cartoon involving Lucy and Schroeder, I think. If memory serves, the panels follow Lucy trying desperately to impress Schroeder as he pounds away on his piano. She says something high-fallutin' that is total nonsense to he who knows more about music. Her punchline is "I'm never quite so stupid as when I'm being smart." So it goes with yet another clueless but still presumptuous as Hell republi-CON.

Looks like she can still get rained on.

From this angle, anyway. Whether or not, she's still all wet.

Welcome to DU, 7962!

Glad you're here! Amazing how the other side seems to abhor compassion. What does that tell you about them, in general, then? Hopefully enough to get his microbe-sized heart bounced out of office in the next election. Cadman. Hmmmm... He's aptly named. WHY do voters vote for cads like him?

Unfortunately, no, we DON'T know they're coming. 'Cause they're probably not. Schmuck.

But if ANYBODY deserves to have his own underwear drawer and bellybutton lint closely inspected by government investigators and prosecutors, it's him.

+1,000,000!

Arrogant, smug, smarmy-ass putz. He always looks like he smells something. Or maybe just - he always looks like he smells. Period.

Damn these people!

What the fuck do they want? The Dis-United States of Somalia?

Good points! Offered to another great Will Pitt piece.

Gotta say it makes sense. Good Grief -


That story exposed that the CIA had a source within All Qaeda Arabian Peninsula, and what that source was privy to within the organization. It actually gave "details of the operations he was involved in."

AP effectively destroyed the CIA's ability to foil other terrorist attacks planned by AQAP. It most certainly killed that source within AQAP. I don't know who the reporter is who did this. I have no idea why any reporter WOULD do this.


Ay-yi-yi, Valerie Plame anyone?
