Speed and efficiency have never been the hallmarks of the socialist political state.

Some Liberals Now Acknowledge Their Stupidity

Even the far-left-wing New Yorker, besotted with sensualist indulgence, admits that Senator Obama’s foreign policy agenda for Iraq was idiotic.  Democrat/Socialist Party leaders Nancy Pelosi, John Murtha, and Harry Reid, of course, remain committed to rapid withdrawal from Iraq.

Perils of Parleying

Maggie’s Farm links to The Talking Cure: Sometimes it makes things worse, by Max Boot

Mr. Boot carefully scrutinizes the generally unfavorable results of political summit meetings.  In so doing, he highlights the dangerous foreign policy naivete of Senator Obama.

Read Obama’s Social Security Fine Print.
