I had forgotten about this, thankfully Heather didn't.
Bill Kristol said this. Yes, neocon Bill Kristol of The Weekly Standard and regular commentator on Fox. That Bill Kristol said this:
“If this election is just about the last four years, that’s a muddy verdict. Bush was president during the financial meltdown. The Obama team has turned that around pretty well."
He's right, you know (and I rarely use those four words in reference to Kristol):
If this election is about the last four years, and a big part of it is, then voting for Willard Romney is tantamount for voting for Bush III. He's not only in favor of continuing the same unpaid-for tax cuts that Bush stuck the economy, but he also wants to privatize Medicare, schools, and, well, pretty much corporatize America overall.
Oh, and he surrounds himself with former Bushies whom he relies on for foreign policy advice.
What could possibly go wrong?
Poor Bill, he wanted Sar to come back and lead the flock, but he got Mittens. Via Think Progress.
"But to somehow leap to the conclusion that this was somehow caused by the fact that we don’t have more gun control legislation I don’t think has been proved."
vs Bill Kristol:
“People have a right to handguns and hunting rifles. I don’t think they have a right to semi-automatic, quasi-machine guns that can shoot hundred bullets at a time. ... I think there is support for some moderate forms of gun control if they separate clearly from a desire to take away everyone’s handguns or hunting rifles."
It's time to come up with some reasonable legislation to outlaw ownership of semi-automatic assault weapons as well has high capacity magazines. This is long overdue. Meantime, a ban on costumes went into effect immediately.
And now, because it's election season and we'll be extra busy, we GottaAsk:
We'd love to reach our goal quickly so we can stop with the blegs already, but we have to keep at it until we're there.
