Oh I am sorry, I responded before you edited your response. My sarcasm was so misplaced.

I agree.

ANYTIME this is stopped we ALL learn from what was done. As long as the left wingers allow us to extract vital and much needed information from him to save Americans lives.

For the OP to read into this and twist the facts and purpose it only shows me that the left is blind to see the real truth.

This benefited us all. You are still able to post such a twisted left wing spin post right?

You are without a doubt the very LAST person to be talking like this.

Go back and read your posts. Then get back to me.

As serious as a heart attack!

Only a week or so later, responding to the same “no middle ground” Cheney speech, CIA Director Leon Panetta made the following comments in an interview with The New Yorker: “I think [Cheney] smells some blood in the water on the national-security issue…It’s almost, a little bit, gallows politics. When you read behind it, it’s almost as if he’s wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point. I think that’s dangerous politics.”

Thanks.
I'll take that as a no. Figures. And if you had bothered to "read" the thread title, you'd see I was simply agreeing with the OP. On topic indeed.

I have an idea for you. Stick to posting and leave the moderating to the mods. Works better that way.

The illustrious pill popping "GOP leader" has publicly wished for Obama to fail. It all fits.

Kean said Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab, the 23-year-old Nigerian who failed in his attempt to set off an explosive on an airplane about to land in Detroit, “probably did us a favor.”

So what favor did he do for the GOP?
Could someone perhaps explain to me how the bolded portion was extrapolated in such a way that Kean meant it would benefit the GOP.

Are we assuming he meant it would benefit the GOP because he is a Republican?

Is there another source where Kean went on to say that it would benefit the GOP?

Surely this couldn't be one of those examples of some obscure statement being taken out of context or used as a political tool to assail someone now.
