Dangerous New Conventional Wisdom Forming Off the East Coast


By Arianna Huffington

Here’s a newly minted bit of MSM groupthink that needs to be stamped out before it congeals into conventional wisdom: that only people on the left are upset about the way the White House used lies and deception to lead us into a reckless and unnecessary war. A sub-version of this is that the only people upset about Judy Miller and Plamegate are anti-war types who care about the role Miller and the neocons played in helping the Bush White House market the war.

This nugget first hit my radar screen Tuesday night. I was on CNN being interviewed by Aaron Brown (in my experience, one of the best interviewers in the business), when, to my surprise, he suddenly suggested that “a lot of the animosity that’s being directed towards Ms. Miller, a lot of the hits she’s taken…are just simply coming from the left, people opposed to the war...[and] what was clearly flawed reporting leading up to the war

I voted for Bush in 2000. I support his impeachment now.

A former boss of mine who voted for G.W.Bush, is a lifelong Republican, and was an Army Interrogator in Vietnam, now says he is totally embarrassed by this president. In his words- "Is this clown the best my party could come up with?" He just could not be moved to vote for John Kerry.Voting on party lines is what got us this dangerous mob in the White House. The neocons are a tiny cabal of dangerous radicals who hijacked the GOP, and there is nothing "conservative" about them,or "religious" either, as they ignore the teachings of Jesus and the Commandments at every turn. "Love thy neighbor as thyself" and "Thou Shalt Not Kill, Lie, or Steal" go in one ear and out the other with this gang....they use religion (thanks to Karl Rove-a modern-day Goebbels) as the ultimate political mind-control device.
