    What about her being a spy supposed to be private till she was ousted by one in Bush's administration? Screw them?

    @Libertyiskey First of all the wench was working in the office when she was "outed". I guess it would have been ok if Bush would have given guns to Mexican drug gangs to KILL American boarder guards. Or reveal the identity of a Navy Seal who was KILLED by terrorists. She just quit her job because her democrat operative husband couldn't derail Bush's plan to hit back at the muj.

    @captchaos69 you see that's the problem you think since the next guy did bad things its not big deal what happened before and that's why we keep getting shitty career politicians keep doing worse and worse things. Be mad at both an quit the partisan bullshit. Just cause she was working in the office then doesn't mean she wasn't on the field before or that she was going to e going out in the future. It compromises her job and her families safety and that your ok with that cause her husband was a democrat (who was right about their not being any weapons of mass destruction) is horrendous and shows you have a disregard for human life just cause they don't agree with every single thing you believe in. I am no fan of Obama and no fan of Bush, they're both horrible presidents, but keep electing people because of the letter behind their name, our country has turned out pretty well from doing that hasn't it?

    @Libertyiskey That's where you are wrong. I don't elect people because of the letter behind their name. As a matter of fact I voted AGAINST people basically since Reagan, not FOR the one who got my vote. And you are right that sucks. When you vote for the lesser of two evils, you still get evil. As far as G.W. goes, he wasn't the best persident we've ever had, but he certainly was not the worst. He got dealt a crappy hand when he took office. The economy was slowly circling the drain when he came in, then the planes hit the towers. He had to deal with a hostile press and congress, plus idiots at the state level after a hurricane. So all in all I believe he did ok. My biggest gripe with him was caving in on the bailouts in 08 that started the economy down the drain. Obama has done nothing to stop the economic collapse and all indicators point to some real problems in the very near future. I think Bush gave it an honest effort, but he was up against some real obsticles that many could not be overcome. Was it his fault he couldn't overcome some of those things, I don't know but I believe he tried. As far as Plame goes, I didn't say things were ok because her husband was a democrat. Him being a democrat has nothing to do with it, him being an idiot does. He went to the middle east to deliberately debunk the WMD theory. Hussein used them against his own people, so where did they go? Between the UN and people like Wilson he had over 6 months to hide them. They were there, and they are still there, unless Iran found them, then WE will get them.

    Politix, once again a completely misleading headline. Plame didn't slam the paintings, she said that outing them via hacking was creepy. Shameless spin on your part to create sensation where none exists. Slow news day?

    Cut the guy a bit of slack. At least he is not out there starting wars or destroying the economy. Let the man paint in peace.

    Looks better than I could do. I showed off one of my examples to the class once and was called an 'impressionist'. Only trouble was, it was supposed to have been a 'still life' painting of a sleeping cat.

    @PoliticalSpice "awaiting trial for war crimes."
    Only if we try the Congress that voted yes on sending troops. Unless you forget the President cannot send the military into countries without Congressional approval. I give Bush his fair share of credit for what he did, but his cabinet, and Congress did their fair share in saying "Sure lets do that!"

    I'm trying to figure out why Valerie Plame's opinion of an amateur painter's attempts at being creative other than to drag up that Richard Armitage outed her as a CIA employee.

    I'm also trying to figure out why Politix hasn't done a story about a person and a speech that's been buzzing around the conservative and libertarian sites this weekend.

    @kathyparsell Oh, here, let me try:

    First, basing a tax system for the largest economy in the history of the planet on "tithing" - a concept apparently popular with Bronze Age barbarians 2500 to 5000 years ago - and then relying again on that mythology to claim the "proportionality" of tithing is "fair" - is simply naive. 10% of a billion dollars won't hurt the billionaire in the same way 10% of one thousand dollars will hurt an elderly widow. To declare otherwise is not too surprising from a neurosurgeon, not an economist, whose income is certainly into six figures and possibly well into the 7 figure range.

    Second, the Health Savings Account idea is really popular with two groups - bankers and insurance companies, neither of which have shown themselves recently to be all that reliable as custodians of other peoples' money. And it overlooks the actual costs of therapies. Need a bone marrow transplant? That's $250,000. Dick Cheney's heart transplant was around $1,000,000 - how many 7-11 managers can sock away that much before they need to spend it?

    But what rubs me the wrong way is this "Now they have some control over their own health care. And very quickly they're going to learn how to be responsible." It's another iteration of that despicable "47%" commentary from failed Republican candidate Mitt Romney and ignores the control people already have, like to say no to a surgeon and seek a second opinion.

    George W. Bush's painting, give me a brake, the man was the worst president since Herbert Clark Hoover and his painting sucks.

    @PoliticalSpice Nah, Hitler's stuff looked better. This is almost cartoonish. It kind of reminds me of some of my first year art classes in college. Not the better ones either.

    @frigginhell well hitler was better at bringing hell to earth also. What are we saying here, that Bush doesn't queit measure up to the Hitler standard. Ok I'll give you that. Bush Bush finished what Hitler never suceed in. He laid the ground legal infastructure for bringing fascism to the u.s. Hitler never could.

    @PoliticalSpice No, I'm saying Hitler was a better painter than GWB. That's all I'm saying. Well, that and GWB's painting looks like crap.

    From Calvin Trillin, the Deadline Poet:

    Hacker Unearths Paintings by George W Bush

    To new artist George Bush (the junior),
    We welcome you. Greetings. Salaam.
    We're eager to see your depiction
    Of nukes stashed away by Saddam.

    Isn't it fun to be able to bash Bush some more over what a hacker exposed? Sure seems like it. As for my thinking, it's better than some of the art that the local "artists" paint around here that they like to hang up in the stores and try to sell. Then again he's no Bob Ross.

    Need one more response, how about don't care? I don't care, he obviously paints for his own pleasure, not for profit, so, it it makes him happy and is a form of relaxation for him, who gives a hoot and what Plame thinks - well, she's already had her 15 min. and was found wanting. I guess to some, any attention is better than being totally forgotten. LOL - I don't care what she or her husband think. None of my business.

    Well, when anyone does a painting, it is his/her own personal expression of the subject matter. Anyone who does not like it should just ignore it and go away. It is personal with Valerie, so her opinion is flawed with regards to his artistic merit. I could care less what she thinks...or thinks, for that matter.

    I'd have to become addicted to meth to work up enough energy to care one way or the other. Matter of fact typing this makes me want a nap.
