Yes, Ned is a big pile of #2, no doubt about that.

Thanks, nutria. Let's give attribution to guy who coined the term, Charles Pierce, a great (lefty) writer.

The piece is worth a read, if only for its comparison of the right-wing to Stalin.

Pierce wrote:So the parlor games begin, because it's easier to psychoanalyze a president than it is to plumb the depths of a country mired in self-loathing, seeking scapegoats for the turmoil in its own mind, and rotting from within from unexpiated sins.

So Ned invokes Carter to tar the Obama administration. Geez, Neddy, at least the Democratic Party recognizes their former administrations. Judging by the recent GOP conclave, the Republicans apparently have no living former presidents.

"The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions," the embassy said in a statement published online"

Pffft... details, details.

The important thing is that we Republicans keep you demmies from noticing how badly Gov. Romney bungled his response to it. Keep looking over there!

Ah so? Why did Barry's crew disavow so quickly then?

His death is a direct result of Obama's encoraging the "Arab Spring" movement along with his perceived weakness in the Muslim world due to pandering, bowing and scraping.

It's 1979 all over again.

Deal with it.

It's clear that Ned doesn't understand the meaning of the term "direct result".

Right on cue, Ned gives us the latest spin: The Romney campaign gets desperate.

Deal with it? Honestly, I'm not offended by the image you posted. What offends me is your lack of respect, and the fact that you are less outraged by "his death" than you are giddy to have this opportunity to bash Obama. Were your guy in office, we'd have crickets.

Don't worry, Obama's lapdogs in the LSM are in the process of making this about Romney. It'll be OK.
