Why The GOP Can't Be Trusted with Foreign Policy 1/3 | Nomadic Politics

Why The GOP Can't Be Trusted with Foreign Policy 1/3 | Nomadic Politics | Liberal Political thoughts | Scoop.it
Lost in Paul Ryan’s flagrant dishonesty and Romney’s sticky-gooey sing-song speech, the incoherent silliness of Clint’s burlesque with an empty chair, there was an appearance that might have gone unnoticed at the Republican convention.

 

His was a familiar face- a bit too familiar, actually: Arizona senator and 2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain. Whoever decided that McCain’s appearance at the convention would enhance Mitt Romney’s paltry foreign policy credentials should probably defect to the Obama campaign before somebody catches on.

Fox's Allen West Attacks Decorated Vet Rep. Tammy Duckworth: I "Don't Know Where Her Loyalties Lie"

Fox's Allen West Attacks Decorated Vet Rep. Tammy Duckworth: I "Don't Know Where Her Loyalties Lie" | Liberal Political thoughts | Scoop.it

ERIC HANANOKI

Fox News contributor Allen West questioned the "loyalties" of decorated veteran and Illinois Rep. Tammy Duckworth for serving with her fellow Democrats on the Benghazi select committee.

West attacked the recently announced Democratic members of the recently formed committee for dismissing the importance of Benghazi during an appearance on the May 21 broadcast of The Janet Mefferd Show.

West remarked of Duckworth: "I just don't know where her loyalties lie. You know, for her to have been a veteran, a wounded warrior for the United States Army, she should know that this is not the right thing. And hopefully, you know, she will remember the oath of office that she took as an Army officer and not the allegiance I guess she believes she has to the liberal progressives of the Democrat Party."

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, October 13, 2014 12:18 AM

Ok, they say keep your friends close and your enemies closer. So  what is ALEC to the Untied States?  The Arabs call ISIS "DASH".  It is an insult meaning something like "Bully". In the USA we have a bully called ALEC. They fight to see the rich and corporations have more than their share of the wealth and power of the entire nation. They are wanting to own  our public education for one major thing they want to gain wealth and power from. 


What does it mean keep your enemies  closer then your friends?

Answered Last
Enemies are people that could do you emotional, physical or any kind of harm, so you want to keep a real close eye on them to make sure they don't. It's "watching your back" There is the fact that the better you know your enemy, the better you can defend yourself against him. Then there is the possibility that the better you understand him and his motivations, the better the chance of resolving the conflict happily for both sides. Then there is the possibility as expressed by R.A. Dickson who said "Love your enemies in case your friends turn out to be a bunch of bastards."
