Ok they tell me dailykos is not twitter. Hell i can't keep up with all these talking machines... The reason I call the Republicans asking the kind of intelligent questions they ( and others) have been asking as of late is why do they only do this when it is a Democratic presidential administration? I first remember them in Clinton's use of force to re-instate Aristide in Haiti. The Republican never had a problem with either Papa or Baby Doc Duvalier but to them Aristide was threatening. I had never seem republicans have any doubts about a foreign intervention before. Cut to the Balkans. When Clinton finally abandoned the false equivilence and recognized Serbian fascism as the most developed and most dangerous, he was accused of trying to distract the public from the Lewinsky scandal. The Bush intervention in Iraq violated every one of the conservatives supposed core values. Conservatives re supposed to understand the danger of unintended consequences. Prior to WWII conservatives were rightly leery of policing the world and Liberals were internationalists. Many are arguing that the Right  social populist movement could merge with a left/libertarian/populism on some issues. Somehow we must  get our brothers and sitters on the Right to see the web between Big Government , which theyhate, and Big Business, which we hate. If these Republican leaders do not be careful they might get a bipartisan revulsion at what it cost us  in dollars alone to be World hegemony

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
