You are so right.
Jay has NEVER been aboard imo.
Right out of the box he's been throwing in crap like "let's nuke 'em". That kind of verbal bomb throwing paints conservatives into a Vietnam like corner which as you say is where he is heading.
All one has to do is compare what Jay has said in the past & what Bush has accomplished.
Jay like most LIBERALS would have you believe the war is over & that we have lost when in fact Iraq is just one battle in a much larger war both of which we are winning.
I believe that Jay helped Romney get elected. Jay did not help Bush get elected though.
