    Is it the smell of horse shit around the Louisville area that makes people post such stupid shit?

    Nah... it' really as simple as "simple people post stupid shit".

    I'm not going to trade insults with people who reflexively defend Charles Krauthammer.

    Charles is a pundit who not only played cheerleader to the disaster that was the Iraq War, but continues to be invited onto Fox News to give commentary. Where he brings out what he thinks are brilliant zingers, but that are ridiculous upon a moment's reflection.

    I've had a moment to reflect on your attempt to zing and I think you're right. While I am no fan of the Iraq war, at least it was a Constitutional undertaking by the President. Loans to buddies at Solyndra? No so much.

    You should heed your own advice. Ridiculous indeed.

    Oh my, is that a teleprompter that Bush, Jr. is using?

    Oh, good. A thoughtful and almost relevant reply. Of course, I don't agree, but at least you don't dwell on gross irrelevancies (and inaccuracies) about the environment where I live.

    You're right that the Iraq War was Constitutional. It was also a disaster and a money pit. But we are talking about what is the most expensive photo op in American history. Clearly that would be "Mission Accomplished" on a battle fleet carrier. Also, perhaps the bloodiest photo op, but definitely more bloody than Solyndra.

    (See what I did at the end there? I added an extraneous detail, referring to how many lives were lost in the Iraq War; even though Krauthammer didn't call Obama's photo op the bloodiest. But he certainly didn't call it the most unconstitutional photo op, either)

    Thanks for playing. :razz:

    Oh gosh, my fault. I didn't understand that this was about, how did you say it, the most expensive photo op in American history. Sorry about that, I didn't realize that was the game you were playing. Now that I know, here's a picture of the President signing Obamacare....looks like I win.
