Yes. They. Do.

Once or twice is coincidence. Every single time is planned.

Isn't the line ;one is accident, twice is coincidence, thrice is enemy action

I think deep down everyone knows it, but they're not quite ready to state it publicly.

Within two years Putin will snap the EU into line with a well publicized round of theater missile tests.

And then he'll get on with consolidating whatever Baltic territories that have suddenly been deemed "historically Russian" and whatever chunks of Georgia or the Ukraine he wants...

Carter should just shut the Hell up and be grateful that he's going to lose his place on the Worst Presidents list.

Is Barack Obama's administration an anagram for insane clown posse. Or, an illustration of Marx's dictum that history repeats itself, first as a tragedy, then as a farce, with the 1977-1981 as the tragedy?

How many decades do liberals have to give aid and comfort to a string of America's enemies, uncover secret programs that protect America, advocate ruining the economy, advocate taking our freedoms, ignore the consequences of their suggestions where they have been implemented, before anyone stops giving liberals the benefit of the doubt or ascribing to them the least sinister motives?

It really makes no difference if liberals want to ruin the country or they just don't care that ruin if the natural consequence of their latest utopian policy prescription every time it's been tried before.

To see liberals do what they do and still waste time pretending they don't know what they are doing is to be willfully ignorant. That's not much better than helping liberals in their sinister scheme.

This turn of events is certainly no coincidence, happening on the exact date of the Russian invasion of Poland. The list of anti-America positions taken by this administration, illustrated by this post/the linked post at PowerLine/and the commentary shows a plan to weaken America from the inside and punish her friends at the same time. All the noise and chatter about racism, rudeness, townhall protesters, death panels etc., is just a diversion for the masses. Something to fire up people's passions and distract them.

The desire to get even outweighs their desire to destroy the fabric of the country...occasionaly they can combine the two.
