    all the time.  I think Americans are used to it. Will the GOP try to make hay with it, sure.  But they have no solution, and I think enough Americans know that. In fact, the GOP IS ON ON RECORD FOR OPPOSING solutions to the energy problem.

    Not sure what you mean about the "ticking timebomb at SCOTUS."

    In any case, I'm hardly complacent or smug about the vast amount of factors between now and November that could effect the election.  But, perhaps if the GOP had put forth a candidate of say, oh, HALF Obama's talents and convictions, I'd be a lot more freaked out.

    As it is, I intend to fight hard for the president and his down ticket, and I've got a very good feeling about it.

      Just because I have criticisms doesn't mean that I don't have the President's back, because I do. I want to see him stay in the White House and I'll do what I have to to see to it.

      if not more, and likely US military action to keep the Straits of Hormuz open, which is exactly what the Thugs wants - especially the activist nuts running their party.  They think it'll be 1980 all over again.  They ae wrong, and they are playing a much dangerous game than Casey did.

      Don;t forget, the Thugs have twice committed treason in order to defeat Ds, '68-Kissenger torpedoing the peace agreements and '80- Casey torpedoing the Hostage release before the election.  Bebe is a Repuke, maturated in and by the Reaganites and NeoCons.  

      As for SCOTUS, what do you think the effect of a 5-4 ruling holding Affordable Care Act unconstitutional will be on the election?  We know there are at least 4 Thugs who desparately want to make sure a Thug wins this election.  I don't think much of the chances of avoiding that since Kenedy is the 'swing', just like Bush v. AmericanDemocracy (otherwise known as Gore).

        That much has been true since even before 1947.

        Also, see: USS Liberty.

        •  That was Labor, in '68. Bebe and modern Likud (0+ / 0-)

          is a whole different kettle.  Besides, its not like Likud and Thugs are actually different parties.  They're just different national branches of the same fascist crypto-thocratic party.

          Or if you prefer, think of it as 'a coincidence of interests'.  Bebe wants to take Iran's nuke program out so Isreal will continue to be unrestrained in its military acitons across the middle-east.  Thugs want war with Iran on general principle and b/c they believe it will defeat BO in Nov, or force Jebus to kiss thier tushies or some such delusional theojingoist insanity.  Heck, the Mullahs and Imanutjob almost want it cause it will cement their control for decades.

          The only ones who don't are the sane folks.  But they don't have any influence on Likud, Thugs or Iran apparently.
