    Mencken was only human, and only a product of the times in which he was raised.

    Nonetheless, some humans are far more perceptive than others.

    What he knows, but isn't admitting, is that people can say things we agree with and admire, and they can also say things that we disagree with and dislike. I'm sure any one of his heroes could be quoted as saying something he finds objectionable.

    You're right. I was never a fan but that doesn't mean he couldn't make some god points in some areas.

    Interesting, Obama supporters. When will you accept the reality that "your" President is incompetent?

    Are you suggesting Afghanistan was a bad idea? Did you forget 9/11? How about the USS Cole? Trade Center bombings in 93?

    Al Queso needed to be dealt with. Iraq? You have an argument. Afghanistan...not really. You know...unless you believe it was an inside job.

    Don't know about the "inside job" part, but certainly avoidable, and exploited for Bush's pre planed war with Iraq. As to A-Stan, again, the power vacuum created by Reagan's support of militant Islamists there, Mujahideen, gave rise to the Taliban that we fought latter. Also, the leader of al Qaeda (I liked the al Queso) and chief of the 9/11 attacks wrote an open letter articulating quite clear the REASONS for the attack. But nobody wants to hear it.

    And it's not just me arguing that A-Stan was a mistake, have you seen the polls?

    "your" means I didn't vote for the guy and tried to make sure others understood his resume. Your opinion regarding Bush is misguided because people are always judged on performance and prior to the Democrats taking over Congress, Bush economy created 9 million jobs mostly after the Clinton recession and 9/11, he won the war in Iraq with the surge, had a democrat Congress more interested in regaining the WH than doing their job. You and others buy the headlines and ignore the non partisan results. You will point to 750,000 jobs lost for two month and ignore the 1 million discouraged workers most of 2010 that aren't counted in the official numbers. You claim Bush pre planned the war in Iraq ignoring the information I gave you a day or so ago on Clinton policies. Looks to me like you just want to whine and complain while ignoring results.
