I don't know which comments are more offensive, the ones about president Obama, or the ones about Mr. Romney. This "humor" is just awful.

Evensen's second-thoughts?. "Crony Boehner capitalism" without real teeth. House-Republicans are sponsoring a bill that would acknowledge Mexican drug cartels as a threat to national security and treat them as terrorists. GOP Rep. Connie Mack of Florida introduced H.R. 3401, the Enhanced Border Security Act, in order to secure the U.S. Mexico border, stop criminal access to U.S. financial institutions, and work with Mexico to implement counterinsurgency tactics to undermine the control of the drug cartels in the country. Double the number of Border Patrol agents and call for the construction of tactical double layered fencing. Remember Tom DeLay, off shore tax safe havens and the Patriot Act, those gains have been taken to offshore tax safe havens and deposited in secret bank accounts or invested in up-market homes and hotels. Patriot Act's money laundering provisions, where are they today?. Rep. Michael Oxley removed a provision involving money laundering from the bill at the behest of the White House and GOP whip Tom DeLay, under pressure from Big Tobacco. Mexican drug cartels operating in the U.S. bring in $23 billion a year. That would rank them 97th on the Fortune 500 list.

"President Obama responded to the Iranian drone capture by politely asking for it back."

And what would you do Jay? Start another war...with Iran. Using money we don't have and sacrificing soldiers that don't belong to your family?

Please don't even attempt your thinly veiled insinuation that President Obama is a whimp. He got bin Laden! 'Nuff said.

Evensen never misses a chance to hit Obama, but I do agree there should have been a self destruct device.

By the way, the drone probably did have a self destruct mechanism. These self destruct feature can fail if contact with the ground is interrupted.

More evidence that two thoughts are still not enough.
