    Churchill is having a good old chuckle over this.

    Too bad Bush never became the dictator he always wanted to be and thus his "decoration" left the oval office as did he.

    Where / where did he say he wanted to be a dictator?

    Is this the part where I whip out how Obama's a Muslim because there are some YouTube gaffes of him saying so?



    You're opinion isn't based on ignorance and silliness is it? Of course not...

    As has been done so many time in recent history, I will assert my 5th amendment privileges.

    I wont be going into details here, surely history will judge these folks.

    But TY for pretending to care.

    Bush didn't want to be a dictator anymore than Obama does. I'll let they hyperpartisans figure out what that means.

    Boehner: We'll take Churchill bust in the Capitol - The Hill's Floor Action
    What's wrong with the Great man? I think it is pretty telling, and offensive, he was removed at all by Obama. This the sort of thing that almost makes me look at Brussels with sympathy. I can almost understand the visceral dislike of Americans among some continentals, including the right, when this sort of obvious nonsense happens.

    But I'm sure we must exaggerate to prove a point. Congress is singularly focused on the big issues and does not rest or consider any other items to vote on until the big issues have been decided.
