Big deal! This is who the liberal demoRATS are, and no one will do a damn thing about it!

Kennedy was selling out the USA to the Russians and, guess what, no one cares!

Save your breath! Americans love liberalism! No matter how much they want America to lose to our enemies.

“Baztab has learnt the James Rubin… came to Iran last week on a secret visit”, the website reported on Tuesday. “The Iranian authorities have not made any comments so far to confirm or deny this report and efforts to find out about Rubin’s meetings in Iran have come to no avail”.

If Fat Teddy Kennedy can make an end run around Ronald Reagan in 1983 to the Russians and get away with it, why hould we be surprised if the Dems are making overtures to Iranians?

Rockefeller, Leahy, and Kennedy would be the prime suspects.

Not a surprise knowing that his wife is Christiane Amanpour, of Iranian descent. I don't quibble with her heritage. But I suspect being a member of the liberal MSM that she tends to "color" the situation through the eyes of her own background. She brings a different perspective.

This is no different than when people notice that Queen Noor's position is not the same as the typical woman who was born and raised in America. Obviously her point of view is unique.

HUMINT: Like it or not, the US is running a global democracy. It is only fitting that politicians would seek an audience with the Iranian government. Their votes count too... Oh wait, NO their votes don't count here. There must be some other method they use to get their voices recognized in the new global democracy? Oh yeah, terrorism, an ambitious nuclear weapons program and domestic human rites abuse! How easy it is to forget how they manage to manipulate world opinion.



The mid-term elections were not so much a competition between the Democrats and the Republicans as a slap in the face to the Bush era and administration, which indicates a kind of internal change. So the downfall of the Bush polices is far more important than the downfall of Bush himself, which is what Americans need to compensate them for what they have lost.


The victory of the Democrats in America's election was very good news, not because the Democrats are better than the Republicans, but because it will create tensions in the American system. When the Americans don't have problems inside their country, they create problems for other countries, so it is very good if they bite each other for a while.


The landslide victory of the Democrats in the elections has unbalanced the situation at the White House and many believe that this election was actually a referendum on the Iraq war. The defeat of Bush and his allies in the election puts an end to the hawks' dominance after 12 years.


Although the Democrats are the victorious group in America's election, realistically it can be said that because of the low turnout, the people are dissatisfied with the performance of their rulers and the election was a defeat for both the Democrats and Republicans.
