Sen Richard Lugar's Op-Ed in the Washington Post this morning reveals the true depth of the cynicism of the republican party. Faced with ownership of a failed war and chaotic state of affairs in Iraq he and his party have decided to try honesty. They honestly see this thing as a game in which we find ourselves in a tough spot. They acknowledge that securing access to oil and confronting Iran are their primary objectives. They "admit" that if this plan doesn't work, we may have to punt.
Sen Lugar as well as Sens Coleman, Warner, Smith, Snowe etc. had better wake up and get a clue about what they are saying to the American public. It boils down to this; The interests of Big Oil and Military contractors are worth mortgaging the future of our country and the deaths of thousands more of your children. And if it doesn't work, well it's just a game, right?
