Bieber will ultimately receive a comeuppance that's much more satisfying than any deportation could be. In the meantime, it's probably best for the White House to not get involved in individual deportation cases because the person involved happens to be an asswipe.

A dismissive answer to a stupid question. Of course there will be people who have to pay the penalty. And obviously, no presidential spokesperson ever is going to crow about that.

Christie, because he's not as much of a zealot and is my kind of republican.

Lol. Or, you know, there should be a commensurate response, like the open enrollment period being extended.

No one talking about delaying the mandate supports it at all. At least be honest about that, shall we?

You are right to a certain extent. Women do tend to support other women in these situations because of their lack of representation (and that goes for both parties).

Personally, I think it would be a little disgusting if a state that gets to send 20 people to Congress sends 20 men, which is what will happen if Schwartz is replaced by a man.

He's an ideologue and is obviously socially retarded, but that doesn't mean he isn't smart.

In Iraq, we were starting a war.

In Syria, we're intetvening in a war that's already going.

That's a pretty big ****ing difference.

I don't understand the equivalence people are drawing between this and Iraq. Until the administration starts talking about something more than a limited air strike, and specifically about a ground invasion, it's just not the same thing. It won't have anywhere near the same cost, financial or otherwise, and it's the same thing presidents of both parties have done to minimal consternation before.

I'm still not sold on intervening in Syria, but I'm starting to get an itchy trigger finger just so we can stick it to the Russians. I was only six when the Cold War ended so I never lived in an America where anti-Russian sentiment prevailed, but I'm starting to understand why we weren't too fond of these arrogant pricks in the first place.

Back to practical reality: they aren't going anywhere without the consent of the state legislature and Congress and they won't get it, so let them have their fun.

Brandon: The fact anyone is still defending this guy even after the trial revealed information he leaked has been found to have been used by al-Qaida operatives

Used that information to what? Last time I checked, the gov't didn't definitively link anything Manning did to a specific injury or death. I'd be interested in examining any evidence you can cite.

Yes. It's an integral part of how our Constitution was drafted. The United States isn't a parliamentary democracy where the winning party gets to have everything it wants all the time.

Ames and Hanssen were actual spies for the U.S.'s greatest enemy at the time. At least Snowden couches it in civil liberties and human rights rhetoric. Ironic why he goes to Chinese territory, though.

I'm starting to think Christie may care more about doing what he thinks is right for his state than about being a party hack 100% of the time.

Thank you Pimp, but that sort of defeated the purpose of the question. I wanted to see if Andy understood why he did it.

Andy: Glad to. If you operate from a super-internationalist "let's attempt to make everyone in the world our friends, any other potential considerations, tradeoffs, or unintended consequences be damned" sort of standpoint, then I concede that there was nothing bad about Nixon's visit to China. I do wonder if there would've been a better way for us to open up dialogue with the nation without giving such direct rise to the next great capitalist empire.

Why did Nixon do it?

Also, I was going to feel some sympathy for the 5% of the Saudi population that identifies as atheist but then I read an article about them smuggling Hitchen's books into Saudi Arabia and I felt less sympathy...

Jason: Forward, should Obama be impeached for his war crimes?

The groan was more towards your tone, war crimes are serious business, etc.

Although the fact that we're holding people who pose no threat to us at Gitmo is dumb and immoral.

Even if you concede that slavery was "acceptable" at the time, it was only acceptable like supporting the Iraq War or opposing gay marriage is "acceptable" today. It was an issue that we debated at the time and he was on the wrong side of the debate. He doesn't deserve a pass because his stupid position was less stupid at the time.
