'Iraq doesn't exist'

Compassion.  Empathy.  Real feelings for many but for politicians -- and their wives -- just poses they try on to score political points.

Ralph Nader didn't fall for the con.

Would be nice if Laura Bush and Michelle Obama had expressed similar heartfelt concern for the tens of thousands of children killed or seriously maimed by the wars of their husbands in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. -R

All the children dead in Iraq for the war Bully Boy Bush started, for the war Barack Obama promised to end but never did.

Iraq is what?  A land of widows and orphans.

But Laura Bush doesn't give a s**t and Michelle Obama doesn't give a f**k.

But both suddenly care about children -- provided they can embarrass Donald Trump.  Certainly Michelle didn't care about separating Latino children from their parents when her own husband did it and put them in cages.

But now we're supposed to believe she cares. 


We're supposed to be that stupid. 

Maybe even stupid enough to waste on her 'book' when it comes out.  You're seeing her husband being paid millions by his corporate masters for what he did for the wealthy in his eight year presidency.  But that's enough for Michelle or Barack.  The two hustlers need even more money.

  1. Republicans & Democrats voted for the Iraq war. Republicans & Democrats both went along in creating ICE & have created a deportation machine under Obama & Bush admin. Both parties voted more war spending. So when a Dem does it it’s ok. When a Rep does it it’s not. WTF?! 🤦🏻‍♂️

TIME magazine encourages Barack and Michelle to believe they can lie and get away with it.  While the stupid and hyper-partisan will go along with it, the larger public will not.

But politicians love to lie and when they think someone else is getting away with lying, they push their way to the front of the line so they can have a go at it.

  1. Children should not be sanctioned to death in their hundreds of thousands either like you did in Iraq Bill. So save us the crocodile tears.

No, it's not that easy, Bill Clinton.

In Iraq, the living don't just have to endure the losses of loved ones, they're often prevented from even returning to their homes.

Iraq: Displaced Families Blocked from Returning

Where are Laura Bush and Michelle Obama's crocodile tears over that?

Oh, right, click your heels three times and repeat "Iraq doesn't, Iraq doesn't exist, Iraq doesn't exist."  Right?  That's how it works?
